As America continues to reel in shock and dismay following yesterday’s revelation that Beyonce maybe (but not definitely) lip-synced the National Anthem at the Presidential Inauguration on Monday (January 21), the conversation grows increasingly heated — but the ever-diplomatic Jennifer Lopez handled the subject of lip-syncing quite gracefully when she appeared on The Daily Show With Jon Stewart last night to promote her new film.
“Sometimes it happens, when you’re in certain stadiums and certain venues, they do pre-record things, because you’re gonna have that terrible slap back,” Lopez explained. “So yeah, people do it.” She also cited Whitney Houston‘s famous 1991 Super Bowl performance, which was also pre-recorded. “So yeah, all performers do have to do it at some point.” And there you have it, folks. Possibly the least judgmental and acrimonious dialogue about Lipsyncgate that anyone has ever had. Watch up top.
