Beyonce held a press conference for her upcoming Super Bowl halftime show yesterday (January 31st) and belted out a live version of the "Star Spangled Banner." After her impromptu performance, the superstar asked the media "Any questions?"

During the conference, Beyonce admitted that she used a pre-recorded track during her performance at the inauguration. She said, "I am a perfectionist. One thing about me, I practice until my feet bleed and I did not have time to rehearse with the orchestra. It was a live television show and a very,very important, emotional show for me. On of my proudest moment. Due to the weather, due to the delay, due to no proper sound check, I did not feel comfortable taking the risk It was about the President and the inauguration and I wanted to make him and my country proud, so I decided to sing along with my pre-recorded track, which is very common in the music industry. And I'm very proud of my performance." (

When asked if she will be singing live this Sunday at the Super Bowl, she said, "I will absolutely be singing live. I am well rehearsed and I will absolutely be singing live. This was what I was born to do. What I'm born for."

On whether Destiny's Child and Jay-Z performing with her at the Super Bowl, she said, "I can't really give you any details. I'm sorry."


More excerpts from Beyonce's HBO documentary Life Is But A Dream has been released. In one clip, the singer opened up about when she first learned she was pregnant for the first time - and then miscarried. She said, "About two years ago, I was pregnant for the first time. And I heard the heartbeat, which was the most beautiful music I ever heard in my life. I picked out names, I envisioned what my child would look like...I was feeling very maternal."

Beyonce continued, "I flew back to New York to get my check up - and no heartbeat. Literally the week before I went to the doctor, everything was fine but there was no heartbeat."

She said that she went to the studio to ease the pain. She said, "I went into the studio and wrote the saddest song I've ever written in my life. And it was actually the first song I wrote for my album. And it was the best form of therapy for me, because it was the saddest thing I've ever been through."

Beyonce gave birth to her first child Blue Ivy last year.
