She’s bigger than a female Jackson or a Black Eyed Pea, so why not the ever-young, always toned Madge for the upcoming Super Bowl halftime show?

Yes, it’s big news for a Monday morning. Madonna will take on the halftime of Super Bowl XLVI this February, with a little flexible stage candy none other than the vibrant Cirque du Soleil performers to keep her company on that vast field.

In a very official press release announcement last night, the NFL revealed that the singer considered one of the biggest selling female artists of all time would headline the halftime show on February 5, 2012, at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. Nice timing, since Madonna’s twelfth studio album is to be released in 2012 and her film W.E., centered around the story of Wally Winthrop (Abbie Cornish) and Wallis Simpson (whose marriage to King Edward VIII forced him to abdicate)., will come out in theatres just two days after the football extravaganza.
