Cyndi Lauper Botches National Anthem At U.S. Open


80’s pop star Cyndi Lauper botched the lyrics to the Star Spangled Banner during a commemorative moment at the U.S. Open semi-finals in Flushing Meadows, New York.

Lauper sang the U.S. National Anthem right before the semi-final match between Serena Williams and No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki. It sure is no fun for the pop star who popularized the 80’s hit single “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” as she called for a brief moment to remember the 9/11 tragedy.

It started out well but Lauper messed up with the lyrics just like Christina Aguilera did at the most recent Super Bowl. Lauper should have sung “O’er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming” but she mumbled the third line that it sounded like “O’er the ramparts we watched as our flag was still streaming.

This mistake has been the favorite subject on Twitter and other online social networks. What probably aggravated the situation was that Cyndi Lauper was wearing a short Statue of Liberty dress. Some things like tacky dressing just never change.
