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."

No other album released in 2014 has sold one million copies, all year long. So it's not jus ...

80+ Pictures That Prove Beyoncé Has Changed a Lot, but Not Really at All

Nov 4 2014 5:45pm CST | Source: Pop Sugar

You don't have to be obsessed with Beyoncé to appreciate her meteoric rise to fame over the years; since making a name for herself as one of four (and then three) members of Destiny's Child in the late '90s, Beyoncé has become one of the biggest entertainers of our generation, paving the way for younger stars across color lines and music genres. Interesting to note, though, is how little Beyoncé has actually changed since hitting the scene in 1998; sure, her hair and makeup look ...
