News reports are confirming the rumor we told you about weeks ago. The Queen of Pop, Madonna, is going to be the halftime entertainment at the Super Bowl XLVI.

Prince, U2, Black Eyed Peas, Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band, The Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, The Who and Janet Jackson have done the honors of late.

According to a joint statement by the NFL and NBC, which will air the game, Madonna will perform with help on the field by Cirque du Soleil and Jamie King February 5.

The Madonna

The Black Eyed Peas halftime show this year was kind of bad, so Madonna takes the stage to find the bar set relatively low for such a mammoth TV spectacle.

Taking place at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, the title game coincides with Madge's new album release - her first effort since 2008 - around that time.

Her new single, "Give Me All Your Love" leaked recently, before being pulled by the singer's label. It generated serious buzz and generally positive reviews.

File this under Lost Causes: The Catholic League is calling on the NFL to ban Madonna from performing at the Super Bowl, which she recently agreed to do.

Bill Donohue wrote to the NFL, saying they "would do well to drop any plans it may have about having Madonna perform during the Super Bowl." Why?

Because in 2004, the NFL invited 'N Sync's JC Chasez to sing during the halftime of the Pro Bowl, only to rescind the offer due to some suggestive lyrics.

That was JC Chasez. This is Madonna.

"The NFL cannot expect Catholics to be treated any different," the group writes. "For decades, Madonna has blatantly offended Christians, especially Catholics."

"Her offensive lyrics, lewd behavior and misappropriation of sacred symbols are reason enough. Worse, Madonna has repeatedly ridiculed the heart and soul of Christianity: Jesus, Our Blessed Mother, the Eucharist and the Crucifixion."

She also hates hydrangeas. Don't forget that.

Spoiler alert: We already know who's going to be in the Super Bowl.

Well, the halftime show anyway. Madonna will headline the extravaganza, according to SB Nation (dot) com. The 53-year-old Material Girl continues the NFL's recent tradition of recruiting musical legends to perform between halves.

Over the last 10 years, the Super Bowl halftime show has featured such artists as Prince, The Who, The Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney and Bruce Springsteen.

The move toward securing older artists came in response to the outcry over the notorious Janet Jackson-Justin Timberlake "wardrobe malfunction" of 2004.

The Black Eyed Peas halftime show this year was kind of terrible, which didn't do younger artists any favors either. Anyway, Madonna will surely bring her A-game.

A cautionary note to halftime show producers, though: Do not, under any circumstances, adorn the stage with hydrangeas. Super Bowl XLVI is set for February 5.

Madonna Quotes

Leave her alone. She’s gonna be 16 soon and then 17 and then 18, and then she might show her knees and then what's gonna happen?

My husband and I are not planning on getting a divorce. I know Alex Rodriguez through Guy Oseary, who manages both of us. I brought my kids to a Yankee game. I am not romantically involved in any way with Alex Rodriguez. I have nothing to do with the state of his marriage or what spiritual path he may choose to study.
