President Obama wasn’t even the most interesting person at his own inauguration. At least according to Rufus and Henry Taylor, the 11-year-old twins of singer James Taylor and his wife, Kim . (Taylor sang at the ceremony.) We’re told the brothers were especially excited to meet Kelly Clarkson , who performed “My Country ’Tis of Thee” at the inauguration. As they were walked by their mother and father to the singer’s dressing room, which was set up in a senator’s office at the Capitol, Rufus whispered, “Mom, Dad, don’t say anything, please. Let us do the talking.” . . . By the way, that whole controversy about Beyoncé lip-synching at the inauguration doesn’t bother Aero­smith’s Steven Tyler .
