Word leaked months ago that Madonna was going to appear as this year's Super Bowl halftime entertainment, but nobody tells the NFL when to put out a press release, so it has taken all this time for the official word to come down. But, yes, Madonna will perform, and she will use the show as a springboard for her forthcoming album and tour. Appearing with Madonna will be Cirque du Soleil, which should only increase the halftime show's appeal for the NFL's core audience. If she can also work in a trip to Bed, Bath & Beyond, she'll really have something. [via Rolling Stone]
