The announcement of mega-Brit band Coldplay headlining the 2016 Super Bowl Halftime show was immediately accompanied by rumors of who would be joining them on stage.  And, given the wealth of high profile co-stars on their two decades worth of hits, the task of picking a guest star on “the world’s biggest stage” would prove no easy feat.

But, if the reports flooding in now are to be believed, they’ve selected someone who knows a thing or two about rocking a Super Bowl Halftime show:  Beyonce

Via Entertainment Tonight:

Coldplay will have a very high-profile guest star at the Super Bowl.

Sources confirm to Entertainment Tonight that Queen Bey herself, Beyonce, will join the band on-stage during their halftime performance at Super Bowl 50 on Feb. 7. Presumably, the group will deliver a live rendition of “Hymn for the Weekend,” which is featured on their seventh studio album, A Head Full of Dreams, and features vocals from Bey.”

The news above follows reports ‘Clocks’ crooners will also be joined by another Super Bowl alum: Bruno Mars. Moreover, multiple sources indicate there’s still one unannounced guest set to join Coldplay at the show.  Will their ‘Princess of China’ co-star, Rihanna, be next?

Super Bowl 50 is set to take place at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California, on Sunday, Feb. 7, 2016, airing live on CBS.

UPDATE: Super Bowl sponsor Pepsi have confirmed the news.

  3. Ronnie January 7, 2016

    Bey is definitely planning on taking over 2016 and Im here for it.

    • Sandra January 7, 2016

      Sorry, Adele is owning 2016. And Rihanna is coming soon. Beyonce will be overshadowed, again.

      • #JACKIE January 7, 2016

        Rihanna has been “coming soon” for a year now sis. It’s not happening. #SHELVEDanna

      • Danyboo January 7, 2016

        Adele gotta nice voice but gotta have a sad ass life to stand for her???

      • Ronnie January 8, 2016

        How is Adele owning 2016 when she has already released her album? Rihanna has missed her window of opportunity and is about to be overshadowed by everyone in the industry.

  4. ?Queen Molly? January 7, 2016

    2016 is Beys year..

    Gaga who?
    Rihanna who?
    FatFuck Adele who?

    • Sandra January 7, 2016

      Haha, beyonce has never owned a year. Adele 25 album is about to outsell Beyonce’s entire discography, again.

      • #JACKIE January 7, 2016

        25’s first week outsold UnaFLOPagetic and Flop That Flop’s total sales combined.

      • Sandra January 7, 2016

        It also outsold BeYONCE total sales, self drag much?

      • #JACKIE January 7, 2016

        But she was closer than #DELAYEDhanna

    • Slayty Perry (2 Diamond Singles) January 7, 2016

      We all know that fat biitch Adele is going to steam roll everyone this year

  5. Taylor swifts number 1 fan!! January 7, 2016

    WW sales: @taylorswift13, “1989” 75,000 (9,002,000 total).

    Well done Taylor for selling your 9th million copy of 1989!!

    • Sandra January 7, 2016

      Congrats taylor for selling more than double of what BeYONCE sold! Talent always beats hype.

      • #JACKIE January 7, 2016

        And she sold more than QUADRUPLE of what #PUSHBACKhanna has sold!

    • Rima January 7, 2016

      When will beyonce? Rihanna? Katy? Oh never

      • Slayty Perry (2 Diamond Singles) January 7, 2016

        When will Chartflop finally scan platinum in the US? Its been almost 3 years now.

      • Rima January 7, 2016

        2.5 million WW

        Trashism bearly scanned 3 million? With all those number 1s. Katy will never see Gaga and Taylor numbers. 1 million first week on fleek when will Katharine?

      • Slayty Perry (2 Diamond Singles) January 7, 2016

        LOOOOOL!!! Not you trying it with these homemade receipts. Prism sold 4 million worldwide. Chartflop was last clocked at 1.8 million worldwide. I’m sure if Katy gave away her album for free along with new phones at Best Buy or for less than a small soda at Taco Bell like Flopga did with Plagiarize this Way, she could hit 1 million in a week. But I guess she’ll have to settle with records like artist with the most singles to pass 5 million sold in the US alone and being the only artist with 2 diamond singles.

  6. Rima January 7, 2016

    I won’t be watching. Trash doesn’t entertain me.

    • Slayty Perry (2 Diamond Singles) January 7, 2016

      But you stan the embodiment of trash.

      • Rima January 7, 2016

        Last I checked I wasn’t the one with a Basic Perry avi. Now do as your fav and kick rocks.

      • Slayty Perry (2 Diamond Singles) January 7, 2016

        Kick rocks like how Do What You Want did on the charts? Or maybe like GUY? Or the entire album? Or should I kick rocks like Flopga’s career? Please clarify.

  7. Rima January 7, 2016

    Jackie you out the welfare office already? You get your stamps girl?

    • #JACKIE January 7, 2016

      I wish I qualified for food stamps, but see once you make coins, you can’t receive the same assistance as Public Housing Pamela’s such as yourself sis. Cute try though.

  8. Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans January 7, 2016

    Slay a bit for the second time please? She about to SHUT THE WHOLE STADIUM down and she’s just the special guest…just like she did with that Alicia Keys concert. Cosplay is lucky this gig came at the right time cause their album sales definitely need it. Coldplay who? Not when Yonce walks on that stage. All the attention and publicity will go to her undoubtedly. The special guest upstaging the headliner(s). Only a black woman can bring such slayage.

  9. RihYonce January 7, 2016

    Yess queen !! Promo promo promo !! New music is coming after the Super Bowl & I’m excited to see Hymm for the weekend live !

  10. RihYonce January 7, 2016

    This is so geat!!! Now if Rihanna joins for princess of China omg I can’t !!!

    • SippingmyTea January 8, 2016

      Girl I will lose my mind !!

  11. Sandra January 7, 2016

    Beyonce can stay in hiding for another year or two, to raise Blue Ivy. She’s still overexposed from 2013-2014.
    2016 is the year of Rihanna and Adele, y’know artists with #1 hits this decade.

    • Surprise..(DEC 2013) January 7, 2016


    • Avi January 7, 2016

      Is this the same Rihanna whose phantom album HDD estimates at having first weeks sales of only 150k? A f****** mess and embarrassment. LOL@you even trying that. Rihanna ain’t owning s*** in 2016.

  12. Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans January 7, 2016

    @Taylor swifts number 1 fan!!, I’m not sure if you know, but I’m a fan of Taylor’s too. I LOVEEEEE my black women, but her and Katy do it for me on behalf of the white girls. Anyway, were you upset when she released “Out of the Woods” as the final single like most of the fans? I wanted it to be “New Romantics”, “I Know Places” or “All You Had to Do Was Stay”,but it was pretty obvious that would be the last single because she “hinted” at it on twitter.

    Note: I LOVE that outfit she wore on the “1989 World Tour” with the bedazzled, strapless, white crop top, white shorts, and lower thigh high boots. I think when women wear those thigh high boots it’s a powerful thing, but I’d like to see Bey wear them more often. I love when Ciara and Ariana wear them too.

    • Taylor swifts number 1 fan!! January 8, 2016

      Well I don’t mind the single choice, I know out of the woods, was the second single of 1989 I had, when she first performed it on a show to promote the album. She has so many worthy singles on 1989, and I think this is one of them, and a good way to close off the era of 1989.

      • Taylor swifts number 1 fan!! January 8, 2016


  13. Krista January 7, 2016

    Poor Rihanna. She left it too late now everyone else is coming back #Pawdat. This should be interesting. I’ve missed Queen Beyonce performances.

  14. Applause January 7, 2016

    The clitless cats are pressed.

  15. Krista January 7, 2016

    And can we get a post about LA Reid admitting Beyonce convinced him that Rihanna was better than Tierra Marie

  16. Slayty Perry (2 Diamond Singles) January 7, 2016

    Longtime Coldplay fan, I’m excited to see them perform. They have such a strong discography to select from for their set list. It will no doubt be a great show.

    • Applause January 7, 2016

      Stfu b**** katy rats no nothing about music.

      • Slayty Perry (2 Diamond Singles) January 7, 2016

        “no nothing about music”. Cute. How long do you think it will take Chartflop to reach platinum in the US? Another 3 years maybe?

  17. Slay_Hive January 7, 2016

    Yaaaas I’m excited if this is true. Hymn for the weekend has been my little anthem lately. Such a positive message of you listen to the lyrics. Very light and uplifting. I had a feeling Beyonce would be ready to get back to business during Super Bowl. Something about the New Orleans super dome video shoot hints at that. I think Beyonce has some serious slayage in store for us. She is so fearless at this point in her career and I’m so proud of her!!

    • Memo January 7, 2016

      Serious slayage 5M in 12 years? Delusional.

  18. The Return of Makiavelli January 7, 2016

    She’s not bossy, she’s the muthafuckin BOSS!

  19. Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans January 7, 2016

    @Molly, that avi is LIFE!! What photoshoot did she take that at? I swear she is the epitome of being photogenic.

    And just know that I’m ALWAYS gonna have your back and I DONT GIVE A F*** what any b**** has to say about it. F*** being the nicest commentator! It’s a new year and being nice won’t get me anywhere. I know deep down inside you still have love and respect for Ciara, and I’m certain of it. I can’t respect you and @Annalise enough for speaking your minds and never wavering from your opinions and beliefs. That’s all what TGJ stands for.

  20. Applause January 7, 2016

    Singles singles singles is that all the clitless cats knows? How about best selling albums, The FAME and Born This Way says hi.

    • The Return of Makiavelli January 7, 2016

      Thats cute and all but what about Gaga’s latest album….
      Is it still collecting DUST at the bottom of the shelves?

      • Slayty Perry (2 Diamond Singles) January 7, 2016

        When you stan for a hasbeen, the past is all you have.

      • The Return of Makiavelli January 7, 2016

        Haha too bad, so sad :/

    • Slayty Perry (2 Diamond Singles) January 7, 2016

      Plagiarize this Way sold about the same as Teenage Dream, unless you want to cling to that inflated 8 million receipt. We can talk albums and how Chartflop’s WW numbers are less than 300k more than Prism’s US numbers.

      • JOHNVIDAL January 8, 2016

        Too bad Lady Gaga slays Katy Perry in every possible thing related to music hun 🙂 Aren´t you tired of Katy Perry being taken as a joke while Gaga can´t stop winning critical acclaim?

  21. Weezy Tha Goat January 7, 2016

    Excited for this, Well at least for Beyonce. I hate Coldplay and Bruno Mars annoys me, but I’ll watch for Yonce.

  22. Fatusankoh January 7, 2016

    Omg I am crying with happiness that is good news I can’t wait to see the queen and gold play good luck with the show

  23. Slay_Hive January 7, 2016

    Are these gag stans not tired of being dragged today?…… Biitches wigs have been snatched, burned and tossed from post to post.lmaooo crash dummy ass hoesss!! Dont be like the navy and let your mouths write checks your asses can’t cash. Food for thought girls!! Join the hive or be against us….??

    • The Return of Makiavelli January 7, 2016

      Tell the little monster’s to pull up a chair else where. They’re obviously just mad because they cant sit with us! *sips tea*

  24. The Return of Makiavelli January 7, 2016

    Im looking forward to watching BEYONCE and rihanna go head-to-head in their upcoming eras.
    May the best entertainer win * flips hair ad walks away*

  25. metzo January 7, 2016

    Is it just me or eey is getting more out there this time aroun? Full Promo this era? Let it all begin!!

  26. King Mark111 /.\ January 7, 2016

    It’ll be to push the single that will flop just like their album. Calm down 9ueers, she just singing back up and that’s it. I would go with Rihanna because it was a top 10 hit, but hey, when your album is flopping, play it safe.

  27. DIABETES UNBOTHERED January 7, 2016

    That footbal setup weeks ago was an dead obvious givaway… out of all times itsduring superbowl season. The song is just ok audio wise but i hope they get creative for the version. Bey is notorious for songs that are only good LIVE (crazy in love & Run the world to name a few)

  28. SippingmyTea January 8, 2016

    Lol its not about Coldplay anymore now! ? I’ll just be waiting for Bey. I heard rumors about him wanting Rihanna too. I swear I’ll die if that happens . Oh Gosh ! Patiently waiting for the superbowl!

  29. Pat January 8, 2016


  30. killian January 8, 2016

    Slay Bey and if Rihanna be on stage that’s a total k.O

  31. JOHNVIDAL January 8, 2016

    Again? This group of people is a little bit tiring: Coldplay, Kanye West, Jay-Z, Beyonce and Rihanna. Always working with each other.

  32. JOHNVIDAL January 8, 2016

    What is this Katy Perry fan (LMAO, I mean, that alone is enough to have a good laugh) doing here, like feeling himself that much?
    This is about Beyonce, a great performer.
    If you want to keep going on about Katy Perryvs Gaga you might as well finally educate yourself. The next video is dedicated to you 🙂

    • Sandra January 8, 2016

      Katy Perry destroyed Lady Gaga and her pathetic career

    • Sandra January 8, 2016

      Ugly, talentless and forgotten = lady GaGa

    • Sandra January 8, 2016

      What an ugly fraud Gaga is

    • Sandra January 8, 2016

      Gaga can not sing or perform. Shes a joke

    • Sandra January 8, 2016

      Gaga is horrible trash

      • JOHNVIDAL January 8, 2016

        You are the obvious joke when you cannot acknowledge real talent when it´s trown at your face and when you took the time to find a way to thumb up your comments twice and thumb down mine twice LMAO

  33. JOHNVIDAL January 8, 2016

    Yeah because Katy Perry is better, right? 🙂

    • Sandra January 8, 2016

      Yes Katy is better, more talented, more successful and makes better music than Lady GaGa. It’s good you can admit that

  34. JOHNVIDAL January 8, 2016

    Sorry to Beyonce fans, this is about her, and congrats to you. But a Katy Perry fan needs to be lectured from time to time. I mean… come on! lol

  35. bria January 8, 2016

    Prop her up the so-called greatest
