Beyonce to play 2013 Super Bowl halftime show?

If so, she will follow in the footsteps of Madonna, Bruce Springsteen, Prince, Tom Petty and The Rolling Stones

Beyonce is being tipped to play next year’s Super Bowl halftime show.

A source has told AP – via Rolling Stone – that the singer will be appearing at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans on February 3, 2013 as the halftime entertainment during the prestigious American football game.

Madonna was this year’s Super Bowl star, playing the event with a little help from MIA, Cee Lo Green, Nicki Minaj and LMFAO. In the past the halftime show has seen performances from The Rolling Stones, Prince, Paul McCartney, Tom Petty and Bruce Springsteen.

It is thought that if Beyonce does head up the event next year, she will bring on special guests in the shape of her husband Jay-Z and her fellow members of Destiny’s Child.

It was recently revealed that Beyonce is no longer attached to Clint Eastwood’s remake of A Star Is Born. According to Variety, the singer pulled out of the movie because of scheduling difficulties and the lack of a confirmed start date.

Meanwhile, Beyonce has reportedly begun working on the follow-up to 2011’s ‘4’. According to The Sun, the singer is currently holed up in a New York studio with Jay-Z’s producer Hit-Boy and Kanye West recording tracks for her fifth studio album, the first since the birth of her daughter Blue Ivy earlier this year.
