(Newser) – Beyoncé sang the national anthem at the 2004 Super Bowl, but she has yet to perform at the iconic halftime show—until 2013, according to an AP source who says she's slated to take the stage this time around. An official announcement is expected tomorrow. This season's Super Bowl will be held Feb. 3 in New Orleans, the city's first championship game since Hurricane Katrina. The AP speculates that Beyoncé could collaborate with husband Jay-Z or her Destiny's Child bandmates.

In related news, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler were announced as the 2013 Golden Globes hosts last night—and Vanity Fair reports that the Internet went absolutely berserk. Fey and Poehler may have singlehandedly reinstated our national optimism, prompting tweets like "I could die happy now" and "I want them to host my entire life." In case this news causes you to actually plan on watching the Globes: They air Jan. 13. Click to see who's hosting the Oscars.

Yet another confirmation that halftime is actually meant for taking a nice, steaming dump or some other worthwhile activity...

Oh, of course this is a great idea. 'Cause when I think of great Super Bowl entertainment and great football, I think soulless, talentless, worthless pop performed by a self-entitled, vapid bitch.
