Tom Donoghue and David Tingey, two Vegas DeLuxe contributing photographers based in Las Vegas, are on assignment at Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans, and today they submitted their photographs of superstar singer, actress and new mom Beyonce meeting the media ahead of her Halftime Show on Sunday.
Ms. Knowles, aka the wife of music mogul Jay-Z and of Destiny’s Child fame, sang the national anthem at the press conference and killed it. Take that, haters; talent is talent.
Also at the press conference: 2013 Miss America Mallory Hytes Hagan, who was a waitress in New York before being crowned this month and incidentally waited on Beyonce and Jay-Z. Miss New York has come a long way, baby!
Beyonce sure looks pretty as a picture (and maybe with little to no makeup?). Oh, yeah, the San Francisco 49ers and the Baltimore Ravens face off in the 47th Super Bowl on Sunday, in case you’re paying attention.
