Beyonce Knowles: 'I was too busy rehearsing for Super Bowl to prepare for inauguration'

Jan 31 2013, 3:28pm CST | by

Beyonce Knowles sang with a pre-recorded track at President Obama's inauguration because she didn't have enough time to rehearse.

The 'Halo' hitmaker admitted she was so busy preparing for Sunday's (02.03.13) Super Bowl half time performance that she had didn't get to adequately prepare her version of the US national anthem 'The Star Spangled Banner' for January 21 but insisted she will sing live at the Super Bowl.

Speaking at a press conference on Thursday (01.31.13), which she opened by singing the national anthem for assembled journalists, Beyonce said: "I am a perfectionist, I will practise until my feet bleed but I didn't get a chance.

"The inauguration was about the president I wanted to make him and the country proud. I decided to sing along with my pre-recorded track which is something that is common in the music industry. I always sing live, the inauguration was unfortunately a time when I didn't have time to rehearse with the the orchestra because I was rehearsing for the Super Bowl. I'm very proud of my performance."

Speaking about the Super Bowl, she added: "I will absolutely be singing live, I am well rehearsed. This is what I am born for. "

While it has been speculated Beyonce will be joined on stage at the half-time show by her Destiny's Child bandmates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams, the singer refused to give away any details.

Beyonce, 31, also revealed she can't wait until her performance is over so that she can spend time with her husband Jay-Z and their 12-month-old daughter Blue Ivy.

She explained: "I can't wait until it's all over, I'm gonna enjoy my daughter. I miss her so much and I keep saying 'mommy is so busy but I'll be done at 9pm on Sunday.'"

The busy singer's HBO documentary 'Life Is But A Dream' will air on February 16 and while she is nervous about sharing her ups and downs with everyone, Beyonce wanted to make the movie for Blue Ivy's sake.

She said: "I'm very nervous about reaction to my documentary.

"My daughter has changed me and changed my life and given me so much purpose. This movie is necessary and shows a human side. My job is to protect her and I am happy to tell my life story on my own terms."

12 Things You Don't Know About Friends

Sep 18 2014 5:07pm CDT | Source: GossipGirls.com

It’s 20 years since Friends first premiered. My darlings, it was two decades ago, on September 22, 1994, that we first met Ross and Rachel and Chandler and Monica and Joey and Phoebe. They became embedded in the fabric of our lives. We cried with them. We rooted for them, even though they were downtowners, not Upper East Siders like us. Still, my minions and I loved Monica’s OCD cleanliness. We laughed at how Chandler couldn’t go five minutes without ...
