Attagirl, Beyoncé. Not only is she a mother who adores filthy diapers, has the most accepted thunder thighs on the planet, and manages to ward off Kim Kardashian’s friendship advances – the b*tch is doing the Super Bowl!
Now, as grandiose and self-affected beyond belief Madonna’s halftime show was for the final last February, Beyoncé is going to bring something special to the plate. Madge might have been able to bring the weirdness that is CeeLo Green, Nicki Minaj (yawn) and M.I.A. (yawn), but Beowulf has Jay-Z, Rihanna, a Destiny’s Child reunion and her pick of the hip-hop/RnB industry at her fingertips. I wonder if Michelle Obama can sing (we know she can get down).
After the Material Girl’s fashion theatrics in custom Givenchy, it’s unlikely Bey will go with the same designer, even though the French fashion house is one of her top red carpet picks.
I can see her going with Mardi-Gras mixed with Americana (the event is in New Orleans), which the likes of Dolce & Gabanna could do with their eyes closed. I would however like to see her task an edgy US designer, like The Blonds, who do rock’n'roll carnival corsetry like no other. Here’s a look from their Spring 2013 collection.
The Pepsi Halftime Show will take place at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans on February 3rd 2013.
