Beyonce Responds To Her Lip-Sync Controversy With "Can I Live?" Logo Sweatshirt

The 'Countdown' singer seems to have taken a dig at claims she did not sing live at last week's inauguration.

Beyonce has seemingly responded to last week's widespread media speculation about whether she lip-synced at US President Barack Obama's inauguration ceremony.

The 'Love On Top' singer performed US National Anthem 'The Star-Spangled Banner' at the even on Monday (21st January), however reports later claimed she opted to use a pre-recorded track instead of singing live.

Beyonce has now posted several pictures of rehearsals for her US Super Bowl halftime show this weekend, including one which seems to take a stab at the criticism surrounding the lip-sync claims.

The 'Countdown' singer is seen in the picture wearing a sweatshirt with the words "Can I Live?" written on the front, while holding up her hands as if posing a question.

The words 'Can I Live?' are also the title to a song from her husband Jay-Z's 1996 debt album 'Reasonable Doubt', however the timing of Beyonce's picture post has led to speculation it is a dig at the lip-sync controversy.
