The past year has clearly been a win for women in entertainment. It's only fitting, then, that the Super Bowl XLVI halftime show belongs to none other than Madonna -- along with Nicki Minaj and M.I.A., according to Contact Music.
Madonna admitted to Anderson Cooper in an episode of his talk show that will air on Thursday, February 2, that the pressure's fierce: "I have eight minutes to set up my stage, 12 minutes to put on the greatest show on Earth, and I have seven minutes to take it down." While we have no doubts she will bring down the house, one big question looms: Will there be voguing?
I ask because pictures on TMZ show the stage Vogue'd out. If that's not some cruel trick the producers are playing on fans who've loved Madonna since she wore these pants, this could be the most amazing female act since Beyonce donned a metal tutu and launched into a medley of "If I were A Boy" and Alanis Morissette's "You Oughta Know at the 2010 Grammys. Let's just hope there's no Janet Jackson moment to distract from the spectacle.
