If Beyonce wanted to distract people from talking about her lip-syncing at the President's Inauguration last week using her Super Bowl halftime performance, then the girl has succeeded.
The pop star, 31, took to the stage during the halftime show with a full female band, dancers, projection screens and a risqué costume.
Smashing out -- literally -- on to the stage to begin with her hit "Love On Top", Beyonce busted out energetic moves worthy of a 1980s aerobic video, although 100 times sexier.
Her costume de jour started as a black python and iguana leotard -- by designer Rubin Singer -- with mini jacket with capped sleeves, layered mini skirt and a cleavage-baring slit down the front. After "Crazy In Love" the costume started to come off (as she segued to lesser known song "Never Let You Go") to reveal sheer black lace panels on her tummy, along with a teeny-weeny lace skirt at the back.
Only problem is, with all that gyration and -- ahem -- crotch thrusting (hey, she did it, we're just reporting it), something was bound to malfunction.
On a side note, we did think her performance was fierce (would one expect anything less?), so much so that word has it that she left half the stadium in a black out. We can only say those digital screens take a lot of power to run, right?Watch: Stars perform at the Super Bowl
