Though Beyoncé’s halftime show on Feb. 3 saw her reunite with Destiny’s Child, it was devoid of an on-stage appearance by husband Jay-Z! Read on to find out why the rap mogul made the decision to stay out of his wife’s spotlight!
No doubt about it, Beyoncé‘s Pepsi halftime show at Super Bowl XLVII on Feb. 3 was the stuff of legends. One of the fiercest divas in the game, totally owning the world’s biggest stage, complete with a fan-pleasing reunion with her former Destiny’s Child bandmates — what could have been done to make it any bigger? Well, maybe an appearance from her rap superstar husband Jay-Z, but a new report explains that her hubby didn’t want to steal her spotlight. As if that was even possible!
When Beyoncé, 31, began performing her smash hit “Crazy In Love” (with features a rap verse from Jay-Z, 43), many fans hoped and expected to see Hova on stage with his wife. Sadly, it never happened. As a source tells Us Weekly, the rap mogul made the decision to stay on the sidelines at the last minute.
“He wanted that to be her moment and didn’t want to take away from it,” a source close to the couple tells the magazine. “She had been working her a** off.” Instead, he watched the explosive performance from a special designated area, along with their 12-month-old daughter, Blue Ivy, and other family members.
Beyoncé’s Note Of Praise
Beyoncé was quite proud of all of the performances that took place during the Super Bowl, not just her own. After the game, she shared a handwritten note on her Tumblr that read, “What a proud day for AFRICAN AMERICAN WOMEN!!!!! Kelly, Michelle, Alicia, Jhud [Jennifer Hudson]. You are all beautiful, talented and showed so much class! It was an honor to perform at the Super Bowl with you phenomenal ladies. Love Beyoncé.”
Do you wish Jay-Z had joined Beyoncé on stage, HollywoodLifers?
