Beyoncé Looks Back on Super Bowl Halftime Show in Rare Interview
This is not a drill: Beyoncé gave an interview.
On the same day she dropped her Red Lobster-loving new single, “Formation,” the notoriously private singer decided she’d rock the world again by giving a rare interview. Beyoncé — who hasn’t given a televised interview in years — talked to CBS about the Super Bowl Halftime Show ahead of Sunday’s (Feb. 7, 2016) Coldplay-headlined show, where she’ll perform along with Bruno Mars.
“I remember growing up watching the Super Bowl with my family. It’s an event families come together and watch,” she said in the interview. “I knew I had to make the best of the moment. I wanted it to be something iconic, and something people would never forget.”
Not only did she tear through some of her greatest hits, but she reunited with Destiny’s Child in a performance that’s still talked about today. “I could not do the Super Bowl without bringing Kelly [Rowland] and Michelle [Williams]. Some of the biggest songs of my career have been with Destiny’s Child. It’s a part of my legacy, it’s a part of my history,” she explained. That was a beautiful wonderful thing to have my sisters left and right of me.”
While there’s no official word, it’s very likely that Beyoncé will perform “Formation” during the 2016 Super Bowl Halftime Show. But the real question is whether it will just as iconic as her incredibly epic performance in 2013. We’ll just have to wait and see.
Please enjoy Beyoncé’s whole interview below because chances are we won’t get another one for a really long time. The Super Bowl airs tonight a 6PM EST on CBS.
