Beyonce Knowles will be Super Bowl XLVII halftime performer
UPDATE: Bebe has confirmed the news with this photo, which was posted on her official Tumblr.
Without resorting to a hackneyed play on one of her song titles, we'll share that the AP is reporting Beyonce Knowles will be the halftime performer at Super Bowl XLVII. That's 47, for those of us not alive during the Roman Empire. Darn NFL and its branding.
The AP says while an official announcement will be made Wednesday, a source tells them the negotiations are done and Mrs. Jay-Z has signed on the dotted line. The organization speculates her rapper husband and former Destiny's Child cohorts Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams could potentially join her, which is a ridiculous statement to make. Anybody could join her. King Kong and the Smurfs could join her. Let's focus on facts, shall we?
Super Bowl XLVII will be in New Orleans, La., on Feb. 3, 2013. According to sources that don't exist, her daughter Blue Ivy could be joining her onstage. That would really be worth tuning in for.
