Jay-Z couldn't be prouder of Mrs. Carter! Beyonce -- with an assist from her Destiny's Child band mates Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland and an all-woman troupe of dancers and musicians-- brought the house down at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans on Sunday (Feb. 3) for the Super Bowl halftime show.
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."
"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.
