The rumors swirling around the web are true...Beyonce will perform during the Super Bowl halftime show. The Associated Press originally broke the story through an anonymous source, citing that the singer took to her own blog to confirm the gig. In a decidedly Beyonce superstar manner, she posted a photo of her face with eyeblack featuring the words "Feb. 3, 2013." For those who aren't in the know, that is the date of Super Bowl XLVII. Last year, Madonna teamed up with M.I.A., Nicki Minaj, and LMFAO for a somewhat chaotic halftime performance, which featured M.I.A. notoriously showing the camera her middle finger.

If Beyonce's performance at the Pepsi NFL Halftime Show features collaborations, it could likely include husband-rapper Jay-Z and her Destiny's Child bandmates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams.

New Orleans last hosted a Super Bowl in 2002, making next year's game the first NFL championship in the city since Hurricane Katrina devastated parts of the Louisiana Superdome in 2005. Pepsi is returning as the sponsor for the halftime show since doing so in 2007 when Prince performed.
