Beyontroversé, Day Five: Super Bowl Setlist (May Have) Leaked So Can We Forget This Whole Thing?
So a lot of people are still bent out of shape about whether or not Beyoncé lip-synced the National Anthem at President Obama’s inauguration last weekend, and the whole thing is still pretty dumb. Because the fact is, whether or not she lip synced, she is still Beyoncé, and she still hangs out with the rulers of the free world and gets to come home to her loving family and her millions and a mailbox full of letters from adoring fans, so, you know, enjoy eating Spaghetti-O’s and reading updates from Perez’s dog in your empty apartment or whatever it is people who make a big deal out of these things do in their spare time. Anyway.
The point is, who really cares, because more importantly, this is over and the next phase of Beyoncé’s global conquest is less than two weeks away. And US Weekly apparently have the setlist, which, take it with a grain of salt, but if this for real, it’s pretty flail-worthy. Bey will take the stage first to perform "Crazy In Love" (cross your fingers for cameos from Jay-Z and Blue Ivy), followed by Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams to reprise Destiny’s Child’s hits "Bills, Bills, Bills," "Survivor" and newcomer "Nuclear." Would have liked some "Bug-a-Boo" in there as well, but this song selection is more than satisfactory.
Now, people will inevitably ask, for the sake of being topical, is Beyoncé going to lip-sync? Even if she does, it will still be better than the unwatchable shells of themselves The Who have become, right? Being upset over not including Da Brat in the live performance of "Survivor," however, is entirely reasonable.
And you know what? It’s Friday. It’s been a long week. You guys deserve a dance break. Without further adieu, here’s a Destiny’s Child video party.
