TMZ reports that Beyonce lip-synched her performance at the Inauguration yesterday choosing to use a pre-recorded track instead of singing live, unlike Kelly Clarkson, who did sing live. Say it ain’t so, Bee?
Beyonce did remove her “inner ear” ear piece during the performance. That could have been simply because the music was too loud. I should point out that Whitney Houston also lip-synched her most famous rendition of the national anthem at the Super Bowl in 1991.
At least Lindsay Lohan can find some humor in her “dramatic” incident on Friday. To catch you up, when producers of her Liz Taylor movie for Lifetime tried to reach Linday at her hotel, she would not answer her phone. Lohan was said to be “unconscious” and paramedics were called. Yes, she was unconscious. It’s called sleep. Turns out Lilo was sleeping very hard after several long days of work and didn’t hear the phone ring. Oops. So Lindsay sent this Tweet out this weekend:
“Note to self.. After working 85hours in 4days, and being up all night shooting, be very aware that you might pass out from exhaustion &7 paramedics MIGHT show up @ your door…. Hopefully theyre cute. Otherwise it would be a real let down.”

WHITNEY HOUSTON, DEATH & THE GRAMMYS
The Grammys have unveiled a fascinating new documentary on how they handled the news of Whitney Houston’s death and how they worked to create a tribute to her. It’s called: A Death In The Family: The Show Must Go One. You can watch it here on the Grammy Web site. The documentary not only features behind-the-scenes types talking about the tragedy, it also includes interviews with first time host LL Cool J who was battling the flu and singer Jennifer Hudson who would perform a touching tribute. It’s 28 minutes long, but worth a watch.
HEY A&F – CALL ME, MAYBE!
The latest “Call May Maybe” viral video features the hunky, sexy and oh so adorable men of Abercrombie & Fitch singing the Carly Rae Jepsen hit of the summer. Studs from A&F stores in London, Paris, and New York, among others are featured dancing shirtless. So all I got to say is, give me them digits. The phone is in my hand!
So there are tons of reports running rampant this weekend that Whitney Houston’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina, is in a relationship with Nick Gordon. Nick happens to be Whitney’s unofficially adopted son. He had some family trouble about 10 years ago, so Whitney took him in and reportedly treated him as her own. He became a part of the family. In recent weeks, Bobbi Kristina and Nick have been photographed holding hands and kissing, in other words, being a couple. Nick even posted the photo you see here on his Twitter page. So now the big question…is it wrong?
I’m not so sure. Like I said, we know he’s not blood relation. And although “reports” are that Whitney may have treated him like a son, I believe she obviously didn’t consider him a real son b/c he was left nothing in the will. And how do we know what their relationship was before Whitney died? Bobbi Kristina kept a very private life and no one truly payed attention to her until after her mother died. Maybe this was the norm at the Houston house? Although TMZ did report a story this weekend that the couple broke the news to friends who were shocked. True? Not true? Who knows? I say, she’s 19, her mother just died and she’s seeking comfort in a close friend. Let the girl be. Tell me what you think.
So apparently there are no new ideas in Hollywood. Warner Bros. has decided it wants to remake the Kevin Costner/Whitney Houston flick, “The Bodyguard.” They will tweak it though. This time, instead of being a former Secret Service agent, the bodyguard will be a former Iraq War vet. Ohhhh, genius. Not.
Although the original was far from a masterpiece, why remake it? It was fine just the way it is. I think it’s ridiculous, but I’m sure Dolly Parton would disagree with me and is dancing a jig of glee somewhere in Pigeon Forge, TN. She wrote the power ballad of the movie, “I Will Always Love You.” Whitney Houston made it a mega hit and made Parton millions.
No word on casting, but stay tuned.
