THE BACK PEDDLING BEGINS . . .
After all the hoopla, Marine Corps spokesman Capt. Gregory Wolf said that Beyonce had no chance to rehearse with the band -- and going live with the band was "ill advised" and that therefore, they used a pre-recorded track for the BAND's part of the song.
Wolf's statement continued, "Regarding Ms. Knowles-Carter's vocal performance, no one in the Marine Band is in a position to assess whether it was live or pre-recorded."
BEYONCE SPEAKS ON THE FAKE PREGNANCY RUMORS
In outtakes from the GQ interview, Beyonce has spoken out on the fake pregnancy rumors she faced when she was pregnant with Blue Ivy. She said, "I felt like I kind of had to protect my mother, because when people made up the silliest rumor about me not really being pregnant, She was there when I went through all of those things. And my sister. They were very, very defensive. It's not personal to me, and it comes along with the job, but the lack of respect - people will just go too far sometimes."
She also revealed that Blue Ivy "introduced her to herself." She explained, "When I gave birth, that was the first time I truly let go and surrendered. And it taught me how amazing that feels... Giving birth made me realize the power of being a woman. I have so much more substance in my life. And expressing that excitement and that sensuality and the connection I have with my husband - I'm a lot more comfortable with that now. I actually feel like my child introduced me to myself."
