NFL Defends Beyonce

She's NOT a Pain in the Ass!

EXCLUSIVE

0129_beyonce_knowles_super_bowl_xlvii_articleBeyonce Knowles is a frickin' saint ... and NOT the demanding, complaining Super Bowl Halftime diva that she's been made out to be in recent reports ... this according to the NFL.

Beyonce has been under fire after reports surfaced saying she's been "difficult" towards the people putting together her Super Bowl Halftime performance ... making ridiculous requests including a demand that Blue Ivy's backstage nursery be kept at EXACTLY 26 degrees celsius.

But Brian McCarthy, the NFL's Vice President of Communications, tells TMZ ... the reports are "pure pulp fiction" ... noting that Beyonce has been nothing short of a pleasure.

"Beyonce and her team have been great to work with throughout this process," McCarthy says ... adding, "We have enjoyed her creativity, vision and spirit in putting on a great show that is truly a Super Bowl performance."

Won't be watching her lip sync during half time. I'll leave the room and listen to Kelly Clarkson!

I don't think she's acting all Diva with the NFL but I do wonder if she can do a live performance.

Must be easy to set up a Beyonce karaoke show, no band needed, only a tape recorder for playback. Milli Vanilli with a vagina

You're lame enough as a vocalist when you lip sync a major event, but it's even worse when the track has so much autotune done to it in the first place. I'd rather watch the puppy bowl set to a Milli Vanilli track than watch her prance around pretending to sing at the Super Bowl.

Why don't they just play a recording of her singing the national anthem and just tell this no talent ghetto hack to stay home? They won't have to put up with her attitude this way and we all know Beyonce can't sing live, she is a fraud
