Rumor has it the singer is finally responding to the controversy over her lip-syncing scandal

UNCONFIRMED: According to multiple reports by USA Today, Global Grind, Urban Islandz and other news outlets, the singer took to her Instagram account to possibly address the rumors surrounding her lip-syncing controversy.

Beyoncé Knowles-Carter posted a black-and-white photo of herself wearing a sweat shirt with one of hubby Jay-Z’s famous lines “Can I Live?” on her Instagram account on Sunday.

Now buzz is circulating over whether she means leave her alone over the alleged lip-syncing, or if she’s just giving a nod to her rapper husband.

A spokeswoman for the U.S. Marine band first told news outlets that Beyoncé "decided to go with the pre-recorded music at the last minute" and that, to the spokeswoman's knowledge, she was not actually singing the anthem.

But the U.S. Marine band later backtracked, saying in a statement: "Regarding Ms. Knowles-Carter's vocal performance, no one in the Marine Band is in a position to assess whether it was live or pre-recorded."

However, the Grammy-winning singer has remained silent amid the media frenzy.
