Photo: Beyonce and Jay-Z Hug Backstage After Performance
Jay-Z was snapped giving Beyonce a bear hug as she came off the Super Bowl half time stage yesterday. Beyonce’s blow-out performance went flawlessly, flooding Twitter with her praise.
Among the millions of Twitter users gushing over the 31-year-old superstar’s medley of hits like “Love on Top,” “Crazy in Love” “End of Time,” “Baby Boy,” “Independent Woman,” “Single Ladies” and “Halo” — which was coincidentally followed by a half-hour power outage in the stadium — was Beyonce’s hubby of nearly five years Jay-Z.
“Lights out!!! Any questions?” the rapper and mogul, 43, happily tweeted after the showstopping set. Backstage, the couple — who typically shy away from major public displays of affection — were photographed in an ecstatic embrace, as Instagramed by makeup artist Joanna Simkin. “Mutual gravity,” Simkin wrote of the photo. “Hold down and be held down. #TheCarters.”
Indeed, in a weekend interview on NFL Network’s Super Bowl Live show, Beyonce praised her man, with whom she shares daughter Blue Ivy, 13 months.
“My husband is incredible .. .He’s so supportive.” Speaking of “Mrs. Carter,” Beyonce — as predicted earlier — announced massive plans for the “Mrs. Carter Show World Tour” immediately following her New Orleans gig.
How did you guys think she did last night? I thought she was amazing, she NAILED it. I would have liked a little more variety – I feel like if they had one other “surprise” guest it would have been knocked out of the park, but otherwise – it was pretty flawless. Beyonce is a machine!
