#DemandAPlan to Stop Lip-Synching

Beyoncé, the public face of Mayor Bloomberg’s celebrity “Demand A Plan” anti-gun violence campaign, lip-synched the National Anthem at President Obama’s inauguration yesterday.

Seriously? It’s The Star Spangled Banner at the inauguration and you can’t do it live? (I guess we should be thankful she didn’t also need a teleprompter.)

Of note, Beyoncé is married to hip-hop mogul Jay Z. And for some reason, Jay Z’s past gun problems or the glorification of firearms in his music did not prevent his warm embrace by Team Obama at the inauguration. Note the assault weapon with a high-capacity magazine in the Jay Z video:

Fake singing from a hypocritical gun advocate. What a great way to start out this president’s second term.
