And Who Will Sing for Barack and Michelle’s First Inaugural Dance?

Some dance-crazy vixen named Beyonce. Mrs. Jay-Z will sing for the First Couple’s first dance as president and first lady, though organizers won’t say which song she’ll perform; “It is our hope that we can keep the song secret until the moment,” says a spokeswoman. (We’ve got a feeling it’s not “Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It),” unless she cleverly swaps out some lyrics.) After Beyonce takes the stage, performances by her husband,, Mariah Carey, Alicia Keys, Shakira, Sting, Faith Hill, Mary J. Blige, Stevie Wonder, and Maroon 5 will commence. [AP]

    Beyonce is a nut and for some reason sent out a press release saying that she was so flattered that she would be singing for their first dance… and in the press release she totally said which song she’d be singing.

    “At Last”

    Everyone knew that! Beyonce is the queen not like uggly Madonna. the song is from the Cadillack movie wheree she plays Etta jane. Adam is a racialist.

    How am I a racialist? By pointing out that Beyonce is so self-centered she put herself above the requests of the president-elect? That has nothing to do with race.

    And yes, good for you know knowing that Beyonce recently sang a cover of “At Last” in Cadillac Records (the offical title and spelling of the movie) where she did portray Etta James, not Jane.

    And obviously, not everyone knew what song she was going to sing, since the obviously the writer of the article didn’t know!
