During a press conference today in New Orleans, Mrs Carter finally admitted to what we already knew -- she lip-synced to a pre-recorded track of The Star-Spangled Banner at the president's inauguration on January 21.
Oh, and just to remind the haters she can actually sing, she belted out The Star-Spangled Banner live for reporters and the worldwide audience watching on their TVs. So there!
As for her soon-to-be-epic halftime performance, she was mum. But she does reveal will "absolutely be singing live." #BeyoncéBowl
