A Super Weekend for Madonna


Are you ready for some Madonna?

Bet your weekend wasn’t nearly this exciting: After weeks of rumors, the NFL and NBC confirmed that Madonna will be the headliner halftime act at Super Bowl XLVI on February 5.

Joining the Material Gridironer in Indianapolis for the big event will be Cirque du Soleil and Jamie King. No word yet on the playlist – or whether she’ll be donning that pointy gold cone bra for nostalgia’s sake.

The timing, naturally, coincides with Madonna’s newest project: directing her latest film, W.E. The film explores the relationship between King Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson, the American for whom he abdicated the throne.  (Her Madgesty knows a little something about scandalous relationships herself.)

Check out some photos from last night’s New York premiere, held at the Museum of Modern Art:

    Madonna has a lot to smile about. In addition to her Super Bowl appearance and film, she's also releasing an album next year.
