Someone Actually Cares That Beyoncé Lip-Synched at Inaugural

This could well be the first time this tool was left speechless.

Her phony warbling made Chuck Schumer look like a fool — but she hasn’t apologized to him for it.

The New York senator angrily admitted yesterday that the pop queen has not called him to say sorry after she turned last week’s inaugural bash into an unexpected Milli Vanilli concert by lip-syncing “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

“I have not heard from her before, during or after,” a testy Schumer told The Post after he was asked if Beyoncé had called him to give a musical mea culpa. “She did not talk to me at all. I didn’t say any words to her, period.”

It was clear the senator did not want to talk about the debacle at President Obama’s inauguration, which he organized and hosted.

When cornered at his regular Sunday press conference, Schumer snipped that he had no idea at the time that Beyoncé was lip-syncing.

“I couldn’t tell,” he said, “I only saw her from the back.”

Beyoncé seemed to bring down the house with a stunning rendition of the National Anthem — before the truth about her fake oratorio was uncovered. She has not apologized to anyone for the mime routine.

Schumer has been credited with drawing the pop diva and her hubby Jay-Z to the inauguration, where many said they stole the show from the president and first lady walking hand-in-hand on the steps of Capitol Hill.

Schumer was seen beaming with pride just steps behind Beyoncé while she appeared to be belting out the National Anthem.

Obama administration insiders and inauguration planners were in the dark about Beyoncé’s decision to use a prerecorded tape of her singing with the Marine Band during the swearing in. The were later left fuming over the embarrassment, according to reports.

    If ppl would look up the word lip sync this would all go away… Beyonce sang live along to her own pre recorded vocal…the mic was live…and in the raw footage you can hear her scarf flapping while she sings…she’s such a good singer that you can bearly hear the difference between the track and her…lip syncing would mean she wasn’t singing and the mic was off…

    Yes, but how many takes did she do, just to get it right? Does it make it wrong? I really don’t care, but how much is she worth for her singing? How much do people pay to she her at concert? If you make that much money, then you should put in an effort to sing live and don’t make excuses.

    Congratulations, remmy. That might be the most imbicilic comment I’ve read for some time. Take a bow…if you “bearly” can.

    Living is easy with eyes closed, misunderstanding all you see.
    It’s getting hard to be someone but it all works out,
    What difference at this point does it make?
