Ne-Yo says shut up with your Beyonce lip-syncing opinions

And Finally

Beyonce

Does anyone care if Beyonce mimed the American national anthem at President Obama’s inauguration ceremony earlier this week? Oh, it seems lots of people do. But Ne-Yo would like you all to shut up about it, OK?

Speaking to BBC Newsbeat, the R&B star said: “Whether she got up there and lip-synched or not, did you enjoy the show? That’s what’s important. It’s neither here nor there. People need a reason to talk crazy about somebody. Give it a rest, leave it”.

He added: “Everyone knows that Beyonce has an incredible voice and that Beyonce will get on that stage and burn it down. Everybody knows that already”.

Yeah, at least she got the words right, America. Isn’t that what you want? Beyonce herself is yet to comment. Apparently she’ll pre-record a response this weekend, and then mime it to camera next week.
