Beyoncé had to sing the national anthem in CHIILLZ weather… for the PRESIDENT and (basically) the WHOLE WORLD at the 2013 Inauguration.
So naturally… gurl took some precaution!
And according to a close source, it seems an apology won't be happening anytime soon! Cuz in her mind, what's the big effing deal!?!
An insider close to the whole scandal swears by it, saying:
"She didn't think there was anything wrong with it. Pavarotti has done it! It was freezing out, and if she messed up just one note, that would have been the story. Everybody uses these tracks, and the music director advised it. Any big outdoor live performance is almost always with some kind of track."
You know we LOVE IT when performers take huge risks — and singing 100% live in that kind of weather would definitely be considered one — but Bey still brought it!
And ya know what?? She did sing live… just on top of the track, according to the source:
"She did sing, but used a track. A technicality which everybody does took away from the beauty of the moment."
Don't even worry about the haterz, QB!
You've got BIG stars behind your back! And any American citizen who felt disrespected, well.. we're sure you'll win them back at the Super Bowl!
