|Beyonce confirmed the news with this Tumblr photo|
Chidike Okeen, a Nigerian-British conservative living in California, writes on his Facebook page: "THIS IS GOING TO BE THE MOST EPIC SUPERBOWL EVER!!! Empress Bey is going [to] SLAY LIVES and end the careers of lesser lights! I CAN'T WAIT!!!"
However, Sandra Rose, a conservative blogger in Georgia, sniffs: "This means Super Bowl fans will be subjected to scanty costumes, partial nudity and screeching vocals — not unlike Janet Jackson’s memorable halftime performance that resulted in her being banned for life from Super Bowl appearances for exposing her breast. If things go as planned, Beyonce will also be banned for life after she takes the stage at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans on Feb. 3, 2013."
