Move over, fake moon landing. Take a hike “Paul is dead” rumors. There’s a new conspiracy theory in town and it goes something like this: Did Beyonce lip-synch (gasp!) “The Star-Spangled Banner” at Monday’s Presidential Inauguration?
Only Beyonce and her microphone know for sure, but people familiar who were there are speaking out. The London Times reports that the Grammy-winner lip-synched to a pre-recorded backing track, an assertion that has since been confirmed by the Marine Corps band. (UPDATE: The band laterbacked off from that statement.)
