MTV: Beyonce Headlining Super Bowl XLVII Halftime Show

Beyonce, native Houstonian, role model, Tumblr-keeper, wife of Jay-Z, friend and favorite of President Obama, supposedly has yet another feather to add to her headdress come February: Super Bowl Halftime headliner.

According to MTV.com, the 31-year-old HSPVA alumna will be the featured entertainment at Super Bowl XLVII, scheduled for February 3, 2013 at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome just down I-10 in New Orleans. Citing an unnamed source at the Associated Press, the report said possible guest appearances at the show could include Jay-Z (of course they would) as well as a possible reunion of Destiny's Child.

An official statement is expected from Team Beyonce tomorrow, the report added.

In slightly less recent Beyonce news, the singer recently dropped out of Clint Eastwood's remake of twice-filmed showbiz drama A Star is Born, and joined Jay-Z at the final night of his eight-night run at brand-new Brooklyn arena Barclay's Center.

On the other hand, a Facebook petition to name "Weird Al" Yankovic the halftime headliner has more than 1,800 "likes."
