Aretha Franklin Is an Old Lady and She Sounds Like It; Good for Her

I can't recall a public performance more divisive than Aretha Franklin's cover of Adele's "Rolling in the Deep" on the Sept. 29 episode of The Late Show with David Letterman.

Beyonce 'Didn't Think There Was Anything Wrong' with Crushing Our Patriotic Dreams

It looks to be official—Beyonce did, in fact, lip-sync the "Star Spangled Banner" to a pre-recorded track at Monday's inauguration.
