When Beyonce shared footage of her rehearsal for the 2013 Super Bowl Halftime Show, I joked that the scenes of her on a laptop were telltale signs of her surfing the web for inspiration from more original entertainers. Little did I know that I was right on the stolen money.
While chatting with the NFL Network, Beyonce revealed that she has been studying past Super Bowl shows by Prince, Madonna and Michael Jackson to learn from their performances. Yet, to ensure that people accept her unoriginality as just another of her quirks, she quickly flashed a deceptive smile.
Beyonce also explained her decision to use “The Star Spangled Banner” for her own personal gain at her Super Bowl press conference earlier today. “I figured it was the best way to address it and move on. I love my job. I love my country. I love that I’m able to do what I was born to do, so I’m proud.” Somebody please get that printed on a pledge pin!
