Beyoncé: Lip-synching (alleged) defended by Aretha Franklin

Hey, Aretha Franklin tells ABC News, what's the big deal?

Here's the riff, per the Los Angeles Times:

"When I heard the news this evening that she was prerecorded, I really laughed," Franklin told ABC News. "I thought it was funny because the weather down there was about 46 or 44 degrees, and for most singers that is just not good singing weather." The 70-year-old Queen of Soul said Beyoncé "did a beautiful job with the prerecord ... next time I'll probably do the same."{ }
