WATCH: Beyoncé Silences The Haters With Press Conference National Anthem

Ever since the rumor mill began a-churnin’ about Beyoncé’s rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner,” the diva has refused to make comment. Because she’s Beyoncé and that’s how she rolls: in a chauffeur-driven haterproof limo.

But at a pre-Super Bowl press conference, Queen Bey addressed her royal subjects and loyal detractors over Lip-Synchgate 2013.

“I am a perfectionist … I did not have time to rehearse with the orchestra,” Mrs. Knowles-Carter said. “It was a live television show and a very important moment for me.”

Blue Ivy’s mother continued, “Due to the weather, due to the delay, due to no proper sound-check, I did not feel comfortable taking the risk … so I decided to sing along with my pre-recorded track, which is very common in the music industry. And I’m very proud of my performance.”

Bey also insisted that she loved the haters, because haters gon’ hate but Beyoncé is still gon’ be Beyoncé, i.e. better than you.

She then politely ordered asked the members of the press to stand so she could bring them to their knees with a flawless version of the national anthem.

For the land of the free and the home of the Bey.
