There's no question that Beyoncé can sing. But did she? That's still the question on everyone's lips.
Following the singer's stellar rendition of the "Star-Spangled Banner" at the presidential inauguration, a spokesperson for the U.S. Marine Corps Band initially said that the singer's performance wasn't live – but was "pre-recorded."
Later, though, a media officer from the Pentagon said that the singer and the band never had the opportunity to rehearse live together, but added, "No one in the Marine Band is in a position to assess whether it was live or pre-recorded." (According to an NPR analysis, it appears that singer may have performed live – to a backing track.)

Miranda Kerr and longtime pal Leonardo DiCaprio joined a late-night dance party at new club Rosewood last Friday, partying with Cameron Diaz and a contingent of Australian models.
Their meet-up at the club comes amid some tabloid reports that Victoria's Secret model Kerr – who's married to Orlando Bloom, 35, and gave birth to their son Flynn in 2011 – was getting flirty with DiCaprio.
But a club source at Rosewood said the two were simply out for a little music and dancing with a group that included Naomi Campbell's billionaire boyfriend Vladimir Doronin.

Real or fake?
Two and a half years after its finale, it's a question that still dogs MTV's The Hills. And now, just weeks after Lauren Conrad claimed much of the show was essentially true, Kristin Cavallari has said almost the opposite.
The show was "pretty fake," Cavallari, 25, said Monday on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live.
"Did they tell you what to say and stuff?" host Andy Cohen replied. "Pretty much," said Cavallari. "Fake relationships, fake fights ... but it was fun, 'cause you're acting. And that was more fun for me."

Things are not looking good for Liz and Dick star Lindsay Lohan.
Less than 24 hours before the well-documented punching incident at an N.Y.C. nightclub that got her arrested, Lohan was "dancing like crazy" past 2 a.m. at The Darby, at one point "causing a scene" when she thought she lost her phone, says an onlooker. "She even demanded that a girl at a nearby table empty her pockets."
The following night, Lohan appeared drunk, according to reports, before she allegedly punched Tiffany Mitchell at a Manhattan nightclub. She is due in court for the altercation on Jan. 7.

Kim Zolciak is calling it quits on the Real Housewives of Atlanta, but the drama is far from over.
In a teaser for the Dec. 2 episode, a pregnant Zolciak argues with her fellow Housewives about going on a vacation with them before declaring, "I'm done with this whole thing." She walks out on them and shoves a camera out of her way in a huff.
Bravo has confirmed to PEOPLE that Zolciak is off Real Housewives of Atlanta after the Dec. 2 episode.
Meanwhile, Zolciak has said on Twitter that she is leaving the Real Housewives for a spinoff. Earlier this year, she starred in her own Bravo spinoff show called Don't Be Tardy for the Wedding, and Bravo has also confirmed to PEOPLE that a second season, currently titled Don't Be Tardy..., has been picked up.
So is Zolciak's seemingly-abrupt exit by choice? Housewives costar NeNe Leakes is fueling the (gossip) fire with her assertion that Zolciak was fired. And now the former friends have taken to Twitter to battle it out.

When Paula Broadwell and her husband Scott returned to their North Carolina home with their two sons on Sunday from Washington, D.C., 25 friends and neighbors gathered to offer their support.
But for the married Broadwell, 40, who was both biographer and mistress to former Central Intelligence Agency Director David Petraeus, 60, the revelation of the affair and subsequent attention has made her emotional.
"She's been devastated by this," Paula Broadwell's brother, Stephen Kranz, tells PEOPLE in an exclusive interview. "She is filled with guilt and shame for what she's done and she's incredibly sorry for the pain she's caused her husband, her family, Petraseus's family. She accepts responsibility for her actions and knows she made a mistake."

Mayday! It's chaos on Rihanna's VIP plane!
Rihanna's 777 Tour, which kicked off Wednesday, took journalists and fans on a seven-day, seven-country tour in celebration of the release of her new album Unapologetic (out Nov. 19) – all on board a tricked-out Boeing 777. But the sky-high adventure has taken a slight nosedive, with passengers getting cranky – and a little crazy – according to various online reports and Tweets from passengers aboard the plane.
The 250 guests, including reporters from MTV, Fuse and VH1, have been keeping fans on the ground posted, and Rolling Stone's Jeff Rosenthal is one of many keeping a diary of his experiences. "Def Jam's ever-present staff has done its best to meet the needs of a too-large operation. The amount of money spent on this whole thing could sink a boat," he reported.
But the pricey plane hasn't made for the most comfortable trip, according to some reports, which document hunger, fatigue among passengers, as well as the pop star's relative lack of engagement with the press on the flight.

Jason Aldean and his wife Jessica Ussery presented a united front on Thursday as they addressed photographs of the singer cozying up to season 11 American Idol contestant Brittany Kerr that surfaced more than a month ago.
Appearing on the CBS This Morning, the "My Kinda Party" singer – who has addressed the scandal previously on his own – sat beside his wife of 11 years and said they are doing "fine" as a couple.
"I think we're fine, you know? I think anytime you go through anything like that, it's tough. We've been together for a long time and been through a lot of things together," Aldean, 35, said of Ussery, his high school sweetheart.
