Christina Aguilera was invited to sing the national anthem to kick off Super Bowl XLV but after Sunday, she might not get a second invite.
Aguilera, who has sung the national anthem before during NBA games, messed up halfway through the song. Instead of singing, “O’er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming,” she sang, “what so proudly we watched at the twilight’s last [unintelligible].”
Attendees called it a disaster and a witness said everyone was looking at each other when she flubbed her lines. A source says Aguilera was “devastated” backstage and that she know she blew it. “It’s an honor to be asked and she let America and herself down. She doesn’t want anyone around her. Everyone telling her she was great but she knows the truth.”
What a drama queen this source is. They make it sound like Christina strangled a bald eagle and curb stomped the American flag. Does anyone even remember who sang the national anthem before last year’s Super Bowl?
Still, in Christina’s defense, it’s really hard for her to concentrate when she catches a glimpse of a Twinkie out the corner of her eye. There should have been a message on the jumbotron written in big, flashing letters that read, “HIDE YO’ SNACKS!”
