Beyonce runs the world, girls (and boys)

Raise your hand if you're a teensy bit frightened of Beyoncé.

Between the Super Bowl show; the hardcore work ethic ("[I] practice until my feet bleed" will be the new mantra of aspiring performers everywhere); the insane GQ magazine cover a year after giving birth to Blue Ivy; an upcoming HBO documentary she put together; another new album and now a world tour, we're fairly sure she was sent here to either rule us or destroy us all.

The end to Beyonce-gate, in five reactions

Well, at least we know the answer to the biggest question surrounding the Super Bowl: Yes, Beyonce will "absolutely" sing live during the halftime show.

The singer said as much Thursday after showing the world that yes, she can also sing the "Star Spangled Banner" live, when she wants to.

It was a fitting conclusion to Beyonce-gate, which shook some people to their core. Here, we recap Bey's admission with five reactions - feel free to share your own in the comments below:

Get a sneak peek of Beyonce's halftime show

There are so many questions still up in the air about Beyonce's halftime show, including but not limited to: Will Destiny's Child reunite? If they are, why didn't they tell Michelle Williams not to deny the rumors so fervently?

And, of course, the biggest question of all will be whether we'll catch Bey lip-syncing.

J. Lo, Aretha Franklin weigh in on Beyonce-gate

While the world awaits final word from Queen Bey herself on whether her Inauguration Day performance was truly a fake-out, other singers are coming to her defense. Or, finding humor in the situation, if said singer's name happens to be Aretha Franklin.

Jennifer Lopez took up for Beyonce when she visited "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" on Tuesday, explaining (as many before her did that day) that lip-syncing is far from uncommon.

We track Beyonce-gate (so you don't have to)

There's no doubt that Beyonce put on one heck of a show when she performed the National Anthem at Monday's Inauguration of President Obama.

She just didn't put on a live one - as far as we know. As a spokeswoman for the U.S. Marine Band told CNN, Beyonce didn't actually perform the "Star-Spangled Banner" live during the ceremony, but rather lip-synched along with her own voice. (Were these photos on her Tumblr page intended to be a hint?)

However, later in the day, the Marine Corps said in a statement that no one in their organization "is in a position to assess whether [Beyoncé's vocal performance] was live or pre-recorded."

If it was pre-recorded that wouldn't be uncommon, but it would be surprising, considering everything evident in her rendition: the hand motions to match her scaling the notes, the facial expressions conveying effort, and - most damning of all - the removal of her earpiece.

After she finished, those who bore witness were awestruck, hailing her performance as flawless. So how did everyone take it when they learned that the whole thing was pre-recorded? Here's a recap:
