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."

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

How can you question her talent when she performs live all the time? Very interesting comments. It's almost comical.

I doubt she's been a pleasure. Her "spirit" is another work for crazy ass requests. God, she's so awful. So annoying. And she will most likely lip synch.... Again.

She used to be able to sing.


She surely still can sing.


But she doesn't bother anymore.


She just hides behind a pre-recorded singing track and the excuse "just in case something goes wrong".


Or it would be because they are out of breath from copying what strippers do on a stage.
