P.M. UPDATE: Beyonce wows at inauguration; Te'o to speak to Katie
BEYONCE MAKES TEXAS PROUD AT INAUGURATION
Pomp and circumstance surround the ceremonial re-inauguration of Barack Obama today in Washington. While the social networks are spewing political venom back and forth, there is one aspect of today's event of which there is no debate: Beyonce's outstanding rendition of the National Anthem. Beyonce is also the featured performer during the Super Bowl halftime in two weeks.
TE'O WILL SPEAK TO KATIE
Katie Couric wins the sweepstakes for first on-camera interview with Manti Te'o, the Notre Dame linebacker who claims he was tricked into believing that the online girlfriend he had was real. Te'o and his parents will appear on Couric's syndicated talk show Thursday. ABC News announced the interview Sunday, but gave no details as to when it will take place and where. Te'o gave an off-camera interview with ESPN on Friday night. He insists he was the victim of the hoax, not a participant. Te'o told ESPN that the person suspected of being the mastermind of the hoax has contacted him and apologized.
