Beyoncé Has Already Upstaged the Super Bowl Halftime Show

CelebritiesDirt Bag

Sensing, perhaps, that last year’s Super Bowl halftime act would be hard to beat and that Bruno Mars already had enough pressure to perform well this evening, Beyoncé kept quietly to herself last night, thumbing through a dogeared copy of Anna Karenina as she contemplated the youthful short-sightedness of Vronksy. Nah, just kidding — she totally surprised the crowd at a Jay-Z concert and performed “Drunk In Love” with him.

Luckily, there are no eyewitness accounts of the performance because everyone who attended DirecTV’s “Super Saturday Night” concert/the Bruno Mars Anxiety Hour experienced spontaneous ocular immolation from how awesome it was. Tonight’s halftime show can proceed — NO PRESSURE, Mr. Mars. [AP]
