Beyonce is being slammed by MediaTakeOut for skipping out on President Barack Obama’s Inaugural Ball after performing at his Inauguration earlier in the day.
The gossip website claims Beyonce was annoyed with the President after his office allegedly told her she could only perform at the Inauguration or the Ball, but not both.
“It looks like Bey may NOT have been happy about being ‘LIMITED’ by the President. Because as SOON as the inauguration was over – Beyonce HOPPED ON A JET OUT OF TOWN,” the website is reporting. An insider added, ‘Beyonce and Jay Z attended the brunch [with the president after the inauguration] and then left town. Everyone was surprised they weren’t staying [for the balls]. I think even [the President] was.’”
What MediaTakeOut neglected to add in their story is that Beyonce left DC for New Orleans where she’s set to perform during the halftime show at the Superbowl XLVII. The R&B singer will begin rehearsing immediately for her mini-concert that will feature a Destiny’s Child reunion.
It’s also a bit irresponsible for MTO to paint Beyonce as some selfish brat who left town because she couldn’t get her way after she stood in front of 1,000,000 people and performed the National Anthem on the President’s behalf.
Beyonce did sing at President Obama’s first Inaugural Ball, and will have even more eyes on her in less than two weeks when she performs at the Superbowl so give the girl a break.
