About Beyonce's press conference impromptu National Anthem performance: On the one hand, I get people saying 'HBIC! You showed em gurl, Bow down!' But on the other, everybody under the sun KNOWS Beyonce can sing - she KNOWS she can sing, she has sung live a million times before, so this performance stunt kinda does come off as her desperate to get people to like/respect her for some reason for me, like she couldn't take the criticism of her lip syncing and it bothered her so much she had to do this? A true confident DIVA would not even have cared about what the media or the internet had said - Aretha would have laughed her ass off about it. So, sorry, but this comes off as a 'Rachel/Lea Michelle Glee' moment for her in my book. No diva needs to prove anything to anybody or should ever let the world see they care what it thinks of them. Beyonce still a baby diva in training for me.
