Beyoncé's Lip Synch Woes: Aretha Franklin Thinks It's Hilarious??

Aretha! That's not nice! LOL!

Apparently Beyoncé's lip synch of the Star Spangled Banner at President Obama's inauguration ceremony really touched Aretha Franklin…'s funny bone? We're not even in the mood to guess why (how could you do this to us, Bey??)! LOLz! Jokes!

Here's what Aretha said:

"When I heard the news this evening that she was pre-recorded I really laughed. I thought it was funny because the weather down there was about 46 or 44 degrees and for most singers that is just not good singing weather."

That… doesn't really explain why it's funny. Either way, Aretha thinks that Bey did a "beautiful job," even with all the hoaxin' up in the place:

"When I heard that I just really cracked up. I thought it was really funny, but she did a beautiful job with the pre-record."

Maybe she just wants everyone to remember her turn with the song at 2009's inauguration?? Actually, she specifically wants us to remember that she wouldn't touch that lip synching bizz AT ALL:

"'I wanted to give people the real thing and pre-recording never crossed my mind."

You win, Aretha, you always do! LOLz!

We think that people aren't giving enough credit to the recording, which was pretty flawless! She DID sing the hell out of it! Ha!

Plus, Beyoncé's got back up anyway. Legit!

    She has every right to laugh, she's a true singer an an artist.

    Sad state of affairs, when we as a country think it's OK for someone to lie, cheat deceive
    I read the reason she had to lip synch was she was just too lazy, tired to get her fat ass over to rehearse
    The Marine band were there, they were ready to perform, but because of her, they also had to fake it
    Perfect way for Obama to begin the next four years , with lies

    Beyonce is a performer more than a singer. She is great at a show with big production. If they wanted a singer, they should have asked - like kirai says - a true singer. I am so sick of divas ruining the anthem.

    I think this was a huge honor to be asked to sing and if Kelly Clarkson and James Taylor can sing live there is no excuse for Beyonce not singing live. If she happened to be ill all she had to do was say so….

    The truth of the matter is that she didn't have to sing flawlessly. She should have just got up there and really gave it her all. Not everything has to be perfect and Kelly Clarkson did it, Beyonce could have did it. I think she would have been more respected for it.
