Beyonce

I'm so tired of the Beyonce controversy.  Enough already. 

To get you up to speed, she lip synced the national anthem at President Obama's inauguration Monday afternoon.  I'm actually okay with that.

When it comes right down to it, Beyonce is a spectacularly beautiful woman who is nothing without major studio enhancements and a lot of help during her stage shows.  When you give her something as simple and barren as a microphone, she's lost.

It's 2013, where style rules over substance.  It's all that counts these days.  Face reality.

I should note that Aretha Franklin sang the national anthem, without help, at Obama's 2009 inauguration, and James Taylor didn't lip sync America the Beautiful Monday afternoon.  As we've seen time and again-- in many facets of life, the veterans can blow away the lightweights that pass for "talent" these days.
