Beyoncé Thought that She Could Rehearse on a College Campus and Leave Unnoticed

She couldn’t.

Beyoncé had the idea that a longish rain coat could plausibly act as an invisibility cloak when she rehearsed for the Super Bowl 50 halftime show at the University of Southern California on Monday, Jan. 18. This theory flopped when fans smelled her dominion from a mile away and flocked to her side like zombies.

E! News reports that Bey and her dancers were rehearsing inside of the McKay Athletic Center. “They blocked everything down and the windows so nobody could see,” says a source.

It was recently confirmed that Jay Z’s resident goddess would be performing at the Super Bowl halftime show alongside Coldplay, the headlining act, on Feb. 7.  Launch the gallery at the top of the page to view BFF photos of Beyonce and Nicki Minaj.
