For some the Super Bowl is the tentpole event of the entire sporting calendar: a day celebrating sporting achievement with the pomp and circumstance that such footballing prowess deserves.
For others it is just an excuse to watch the half-time show and the handful of trailers for the year’s biggest upcoming films, and then take to the Twitterverse to pick both apart as soon as they’re over. The football is very much a secondary concern.
And that second audience group will have been delighted after Beyonce’s impressive Super Bowl half-time show to discover that one lucky photographer captured one truly magical moment during the performance. That snapper caught Beyonce half-way through what one can only assume was a typically aggressive dance move, showing the former (and future) Destiny’s Child singer in not the most flattering of lights.
Here’s the image – after all it would be wrong to deprive anyone of another opportunity to enjoy it…
Accusations of manishness have flown around the internet since the image’s unveiling, with some cruel commenters on social networking sites openly mocking the picture with obvious glee.
That has led to Beyonce’s publicist apparently asking news sites to remove the unflattering images of her client (of which there are actually quite a few) – as Gawker revealed earlier this week.
Nevertheless, the half-time show went down a storm – even the Destiny’s Child segment in which the other two clearly had their mics turned down – and during the week of the game, Beyonce gained 108,274 new followers on Twitter, so she’s not struggling for fans.
Here’s her half-time show in full…

JENNIFER LOPEZ has come to defend BEYONCE‘s alleged lip-syncing at second-time U.S. President BARACK OBAMA‘s Inauguration earlier this week by saying that “it happens.”
After Beyonce received criticism for reportedly lip-syncing during her powerful performance of “The Star Spangled Banner” at this year’s Presidential Inauguration for Barack Obama‘s second term, other phenomenal singers are (sort of) coming to her defense… like Jennifer Lopez.
The Latina singer-actress, who sometimes lip-syncs herself during sing-and-dance performances so as not to huff and puff on the mic, told host Jon Stewart on his “Daily Show” on Tuesday:
“Sometimes it happens when you are in certain stadiums and certain venues and things, they do pre-record stuff because you’re going to have that terrible slapback.”
Jennifer was referring to the delayed echo that are often unavoidable when performing with loud speakers in wide open areas.
And besides, Beyonce-or Jennifer herself-definitely aren’t the only ones who have passed up the live singing.
Find out who else did (and was still praised for it) in J.Lo‘s interview below:
