Beyoncé

In a little over 72 hours, Beyoncé will headline the Super Bowl XLVII halftime show. Before she takes the field at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, the 31-year-old singer went in front of reporters at a press conference on Thursday.

First, she put the lip-syncing controversy to rest once and for all by singing “The Star-Spangled Banner” live, receiving roaring applause from reporters.

Once that was out of the way, she discussed her performance of the National Anthem at President Obama’s inauguration, plans for Sunday’s show, rumors that Destiny’s Child will join her onstage, and hinted about a tour.

On the lip-syncing controversy: “I decided to sing along with my pre-recorded track… I’m very proud of my performance.”

On a potential Destiny’s Child reunion at the Super Bowl: “I can’t really give you any details.”

On whether she will perform at the 55th Annual Grammy Awards: “I don’t know if I’m performing at the Grammys…”

On when she will tour: “I would say soon and I may have an announcement after the performance.”

For the past week, Bey has been in New Orleans rehearsing for the halftime show at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on Sunday. However, it’s still unclear whether she will be joined by her Destiny’s Child bandmates, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams.

Michelle recently denied that she will be joining Bey onstage, but she will be conspicuously absent from her Jay-Z and Will Smith-produced play “Fela!” in Washington, D.C. on Super Bowl Sunday.

Beyoncé Opens Up About Miscarriage, Surrogacy Rumors in HBO Documentary

Beyoncé

The countdown is on to Beyoncé’s Super Bowl halftime show. With just a week to go, Baddie Bey is revealing more photos from her rehearsals, while not giving away too much. In the latest round of pics, she is seen dancing in a Brooklyn Nets shirt and working on her laptop while seated in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans.

Despite claims that Destiny’s Child will reunite at the Super Bowl, Michelle Williams shot down the rumors. “I hate to disappoint the people and tell them that it’s not true,” she told WRUG Media.

Meanwhile, some media outlets have been given an advance copy of Bey’s HBO documentary, Life Is But a Dream. In the intimate film, the private superstar opens up about her marriage to Jay-Z (“It’s every woman’s dream to feel this way about someone”), her miscarriage from two years ago, and rumors that she had a surrogate carry Blue Ivy.

“There’s a stupid rumor. The most ridiculous rumor I think I’ve ever had about me. It’s crazy. To think I would be that vain—I respect mothers and women so much and to be able to experience bringing a child into this world, if you’re lucky and fortunate enough to experience that, I would never, ever take that for granted. It’s the most powerful thing you can do. Especially after losing a child, the pain and trauma from that just makes it mean so much more to get an opportunity to bring life into the world. It seems like people should have boundaries,” says a visibly upset Bey (via USA Today).

Catch Beyoncé at the Super Bowl on February 3 and then watch the premiere of her documentary on February 16 at 9 p.m. on HBO.
