Discussion question: Would a celebrity be excused for being "human" if this had happened at a public event in your country? What is your most embarrassing moment?

As a general rule, people should take the responsiblity of their behaviors.
It's a fact that the superstar flubbed the lyrics of the America's nation anthem.
From what has been told above, the singer should be criticized for her mistake.
But, the key point is what is the proportion?
The punishment must be proportioned to the fault.
Every man has his faults.
Couldn't we be more kind and considerate to other person?

I do agree with you, people should take responsability of their behavior and it's a fact that she flubbed it ( I have to say it's a funny and big mistake ), but I don't like when people keep criticizing someone because of his or her mistakes. Yes, it was and embarrassing moment, flubbing the national anthem in one of the most popular games of america it's a big mistake really, but national media networks should not criticize people that much.

In my opinion it must be a funny moment to remember and make fun of it, not to criticize a singstar like Aguilera, she is just an human.

Nice to meet you!

Possibly, some people may say, it is hard to image that an expert singer flubbed the words of the nation anthem at such an important public event.
But the stress she suffered tend to produce disastrous influence on her performance.
As 'human",she is forgivable.

Christine is only an example of the stupid people who chose her to sing at the superbowl.

Hello hello!! I'm back!

Well, Xtina Aguilera is my idol.. I'm her fan # 1.
I must say that singing in front of that amount of people is not easy but I'm also aware that we must respect National Anthems by learning the lyrics very well.. yes, she was nervous, probably, drunk or whatever...

Anyway, the only way we learn something is through making mistakes.

She won't sing the US anthem for a very long time.. who knows!

Nos vemos :)
