'I care deeply about the halftime show,' says the first lady
Just in case Beyoncé needed one more fan excited to see her perform with Coldplay and Bruno Mars at the Super Bowl on Sunday night, first lady Michelle Obama is in her corner.
“I care deeply about the halftime show. Deeply,” Obama said to Gayle King during an interview on CBS that aired before the Super Bowl. “I got dressed for the halftime show. I hope Beyoncé likes what I have on.”
Asked by King if she had ever talked to Beyoncé about dancing, Obama joked, “I’ve talked to Beyonce about that ‘Turnip for What.’ I’m like, ‘Look, Bey, you got to put this in your next video. Obviously she didn’t listen.'”
She added with a laugh, “No, Gayle, I don’t talk to Beyonce about dancing.”
Beyoncé released a new song, “Formation,” on Saturday, and she’s expected to perform the track during the halftime show.
The Super Bowl kicks off at 6:30 p.m. ET on CBS. Watch below to see the full interview with Obama and her husband, President Barack Obama.
