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."

I just think too much is too much! Football should not NOW become the new place to showcase talent. Furthermore, everyone is entitled to their own opinion, right or wrong. Everyone knows who Beyonce is, and its like an over kill! You just get tired of seeing her every 5 mins. She will never be Michael Jackson, and even Michael knew when to sit down.

STFU    

I believe the rider is true and some of the things she she is requesting is just ridiculous.

Now, if she could really sing live perhaps, the NFL would be willing to go all out, but fake signing --is fake singing.

I would hate to be in her shoes right about not because PR has not been on her side.

Guess the old saying "what's done in the dark --will come to light" has some truth to it.

Beyonce is so over-hyped it's ridiculous. At our party we won't be wasting our half-time with her lip-synching and fakery. We'll go to where the true talent is: Puppy Bowl!

You people need to move on with this. If you watch any award show with music and people singing, 85% are lip-syc. So shut up and move on.............

Who cares, everyone sucks her tits! I don't give a f*ck! She is no one special, she is not that great of a singer and she is no icon to me. Nothing memorable except for the annoying way she talks and tries so hard to be perfect. It's whatever.
