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."

There has to be some truth to the story, especially with the explicit details of the nursery. Jay Z filled her head up, talking about she's the next Michael Jackson. All she can do is shimmy around on stage, lip syncing to her auto tuned recording.

All these beyonce haters can take a look at THIS, she actually can sing, so haters should fall back.

Funny how people trash Beyonce, but adore Britney Spears, especially on TMZ. That's the REAL trash.

Blu isn't even there and I never read any reports about her being a pain in the first place. I think someone is just planting trash.
