Beyonce's lip sync-gate continues as Prince Harry hones a killer instinct with Xbox
America is still reeling from the fact that a pop star may have lip synced (GASP!), Xbox 360 made Prince Harry a better killer and Bill Clinton still knows how to take a blockbuster online meme photo. Welcome to your online trends report for Wednesday, Jan. 23, 2013.
Beyonce is still isn't talking after The New York Times reported that her rendition of the Star-Spangled Banner at Monday's inauguration may have been prerecorded. But that hasn't stopped the online world from weighing on the pros and cons of the lip sync. But the real reason for outrage? Why didn't Beyonce rock an awesome hat like Aretha Franklin's from the first Obama inauguration. Another inauguration story also has some staying power: Bill Clinton was captured gawking at Kelly Clarkson while she sang "My Country, 'Tis of Thee," presumably live and not lip synced.
Meanwhile, Prince Harry gave a blockbuster interview where he admitted to killing Taliban forces while serving with the British military. Despite what your nagging wife or girlfriend may say, hours of "Call of Duty" can come in handy. Harry admitted that his trigger fingers were helped along by lots of Xbox 360.
Other trends include: teenager Sloane Stephen upset Serena Williams at the Australian Open, another school shooting has occurred -- this time at Lone Star College in Texas -- and NBC's family drama Parenthood may have aired its series finale last night.
