Beyonce has yet to apologize to Chuck Schumer for lip-syncing at inauguration
NY Post ^ | January 28, 2013 | TARA PALMERI and TODD VENEZIA

Her phony warbling made Chuck Schumer look like a fool — but she hasn’t apologized to him for it.

The New York senator angrily admitted yesterday that the pop queen has not called him to say sorry after she turned last week’s inaugural bash into an unexpected Milli Vanilli concert by lip-syncing “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

“I have not heard from her before, during or after,” a testy Schumer told The Post after he was asked if Beyoncé had called him to give a musical mea culpa. “She did not talk to me at all. I didn’t say any words to her, period.”

Pop diva Beyoncé fooled the nation — and inauguration organizer Sen. Chuck Schumer — with a prerecorded performance last week.It was clear the senator did not want to talk about the debacle at President Obama’s inauguration, which he organized and hosted.

When cornered at his regular Sunday press conference, Schumer snipped that he had no idea at the time that Beyoncé was lip-syncing.

“I couldn’t tell,” he said, “I only saw her from the back.”

I’m glad this talentless flake is finally getting a little bad press. Her caterwalling can’t stop soon enough for me.

I can’t really understand what she has to apologize for, someone knew the thing was pretaped—it had to be hooked up to the speakers, right? What’s the big deal? She appeared and she had prepared a song for the dumb thing. Maybe it is her comment on what a fraud this administration is.

Thank God the NY Post is covering this. I am so tired of the Wall to Wall Coverage of Benghazigate and Fast and Furious...

Oh wait...

Beyonce and Schumer should BOTH be ashamed. How is it that nobody noticed during rehearsals that she wasn’t really, um, rehearsing?

Why does he believe he deserves a personal apology? I’d like to see her tell him to pound sand.

Maybe Chuck U. Schumer will apologize to the country for the illegal alien usurper in the oval office.

You will know a nation by who they choose to sing the National Anthem at their most important cultural event. - in our case - some dippy, squippy pop songstress from Hollywood, California.

Class, brotherman, nothing but class.

WHO CARES!!

media events like this are OFTEN pre-recorded. You never know what to expect outdoors in front of millions... so you prepare as much in advance as you can

The endless focus of the media on this is hiding ... what?

Is that all that is going to happen to HilLIARy? Some tough questions? And Obama’s ‘60 Minutes’ TV interview to thank her was pathetic- thank her for what? not spilling her guts?

spot on, Schumer got some heat and he can’t handle it. His wife must really be the one who wears the pants in that family

Where are the apologies from alleged freepers who were angry at the mere suggestion that she had lip-synched the anthem?

Poor Kanye.

Schumer does just fine looking “like a fool” on his own. He certainly doesn’t require any help.

I agree. Watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, or Dick Clark's Rockin' Eve.

I sort of agree. Performing in front of a very large crowd outdoors in the cold with a big sound system broadcasting over a large area, the logistics involved in that, in singing live is not easy and is often pre-recorded. And I don’t really think it would be a big deal if she had pre-recorded it and lip synced other than for her and her handler’s denial of it.

OTOH, perhaps this what Beyonce actually sounded like and why it was better that she lipped synced to a pre-recorded track.

Unlike Milli Vanilli, Beyonce was at least lip-syncing to a recording of her own voice.

The whole damn government in DC is nothing but a big stage of phonies and Chuck U is one of the worst. A lip-synced National Anthem at a phony presidential inauguration of a phony president is just DC business as usual. Eff them all!

Sounds like Chucky is channeling BJ Clinton...

No biggie to Chuck U. Now.. if she’d lip-synched “The Internationale,” he’d be furious.

I just remembered that Beyonce actually sang at George W. Bush’s first inauguration, I guess Jay-Z pretty much has brainwashed her.

She “fooled the nation”? I saw one 3-second clip of her “singing” and knew immediately that she was lip-synching. I’m sure I wasn’t the only one!

How about Schmuckie Schemer first apologize to the American people for his unremitting attack on their basic rights and the foundation of our society (the Constitution)? Until then, nobody owes Schumer anything other than some hemp rope and a set of instructions for tying a noose.

I have no problem with her lip-syncing at a venue such as this.

It is very difficult, at least technically, to pull off a live performance, at a venue like this, with the variables involved.

It can be a damned if you do and damned if you dont situation.
