Lauren Elizabits

I write books, but tumblr won't let me make laurenmorrill.tumblr.com my main account, so I still have this one for my lefty political leanings and feminist rants.

I'm a (now-retired) roller derby player with six seasons under my wheels. I skated as Mona Mour. I'm a former Boston Derby Dame, of the Wicked Pissahs and Boston Massacre. I got my start in derby as a Bleeding Heartland Rollergirl (Bloomington, IN). Sometimes I still coach the Middle Georgia Derby Demons. When I'm not skating, I also write books.

Oh thank god. 

AS IF Queen B would stoop that low.

It was always my understanding that the statement was that the MILITARY BAND had a backing track, and that Beyonce elected to sing to that instead of singing to the band playing live. Everyone heard “backing track” and lost their shit, but having been in a band (yeah, I was cool in high school), I can tell you that in cold temps, those brass instruments get wicked sharp, and Queen Bey wasn’t about to have her performance sullied by some out of tune flutes, you feel me?

I mean, watching the feed, she would have to be the world’s GREATEST lip syncer to have faked that.

    I’m not really a Beyonce fan, but even I was a little crushed by the allegations. Should’ve known better.
