Cyndi Lauper Flubs National Anthem

Sometimes patriotism makes you forget things. At least that’s what Cyndi Lauper might be thinking after she messed up the lyrics to the national anthem while singing during a remembrance of the Sept. 11 attacks at the U.S. Open on Sunday. When she was supposed to sing, “O’er the ramparts we watch’d were so gallantly streaming,” Lauper sang, “O’er the ramparts we watched as our flag was still streaming.” Interestingly, Christina Aguilera made the same mistake during this year’s Super Bowl.
