Beyoncé uploaded a photo to instagram Saturday night, which appears to be a comment on the reaction to her lip-synced performance of the national anthem last week.
Â BeyoncÃ© has remained rather silent since herÂ much-talked about performance of "The Star-Spangled Banner" at President Obama's inauguration last week. While other artists have come to the defense of the The R&B legend, who was revealed to have lip-synced the performance, Bey has kept her lips tight. However, as of Saturday night, BeyoncÃ© seems to have made her first statement on the controversy, veiled as it might be.
Last night, BeyoncÃ© posted a photo to Instagram, depicting the star wearing aÂ shirt displaying the caption "Can I Live"? The phrase, which comes from a track off her husband, Jay-Z's classic album, Reasonable Doubt, appears to be a response to the criticism she's received since the performance.
While it's possible the photo is nothing more than a means to pay homage to her husband, it serves as a tasteful approach to telling her critics to back off.
