Madonna To Perform At Super Bowl XLVI

Perhaps the world's biggest pop star, Madonna may be gearing up to perform on the world's biggest stage.
The multi-platinum artist will provide the halftime entertainment at Super Bowl XLVI, is reporting. The game, to be played at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis this February 5th, would mark her first Super Bowl appearance; she nearly took the stage in 1998 and 2000, but negotiations fell apart both times.
Since Janet Jackson's infamous "wardrobe malfunction" in 2004, the NFL has stuck largely to older, classic rock performers. Paul McCartney followed up Jackson and co-star Justin Timberlake, with subsequent years featuring The Rolling Stones, Prince, Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers, Bruce Springsteen and then The Who. Last year, the game went back to a more contemporary act, hiring The Black Eyed Peas, Usher and Slash.
Presumably, those in charge of the show are expecting to get older, charitable Madonna, not Material Girl, cone bra Madonna, though it's hard to know just what they'll get. Quick tip to those decorating her dressing room: no hydrangeas.
