Alicia Keys will sing national anthem at Super Bowl

Alicia Keys has been tapped to sing the national anthem at February's Super Bowl XLVII.

The "Girl on Fire" songstress will belt out the Star Spangled Banner during the pregame festivities at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans. As was the case in the past, you'll catch her performance prior to kickoff. (And if we may, Ms. Keys, you might want to brush up on those lyrics - we all still remember what happened with Christina Aguilera.)

Of course, Keys joins a long list of legends who have sung the nation's anthem ahead of the Super Bowl, including Diana Ross, Whitney Houston, Billy Joel, Faith Hill, Mariah Carey and more.

The Super Bowl airs on CBS February 3, with Beyonce performing during the Halftime show.

Drew Brees takes your questions - and your party invites

Ever since Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints won Super Bowl XLIV at the end of the 2009 NFL season, many fans have considered the Saints quarterback their saving grace.

And given his effort to help rebuild a community ravaged by Hurricane Katrina - when he's not setting a record on the football field - it's easy to understand why.

So when we offered our iReport community the chance to ask Brees a few questions, they ran the gamut from what it takes to become an NFL quarterback to how Brees deals with his quasi-diety status.

Madonna on M.I.A. bird flip: It was out of place

Madge stayed mum when her co-performer, M.I.A., flipped off America during the Super Bowl, but the singer is now speaking out.

In an interview with Ryan Seacrest on his radio show Friday, Madonna said she honestly had no idea M.I.A. had even done it.

"I was really surprised," Madonna tells Seacrest. "I didn't know anything about it."

Eastwood's Chrysler 'Halftime' ad not actually shot in Detroit

One of the Super Bowl’s most buzzed-about ads – a Chrysler commercial in which Clint Eastwood growls about the recovery of the Detroit auto industry – was not actually filmed in the city it hails as “fighting again.”

In fact, it was filmed in several locations, including New Orleans, Los Angeles and parts of Northern California, according to Chrysler spokeswoman Dianna Gutierrez.

Were politics buried inside Eastwood's 'Halftime' commercial?

In the two-minute advertisement, Eastwood declares that “It’s halftime, America,” and urges the country to follow in the footsteps of Detroit in rising from the recession.

Gisele Bundchen plays defense for Brady

It appears that Gisele Bundchen joined the chorus of ticked off Patriots fans as she exited the game on Sunday night.

According to a video from The Insider, Bundchen appears to get a little testy with some Eli Manning fans who seemed to be heckling the model, who is married to Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.

It's unclear if she was aware that the camera was present, because when someone yelled, "Eli rules! Eli owns your husband!" the model didn't bite her tongue.

'X Factor' winner rocks with Elton John

As promised, "X Factor's" season one winner Melanie Amaro showcased her pipes while promoting for Pepsi in a commercial on Sunday - and she received some assistance from none other than Sir Elton John.

The ad spot had Elton ruthlessly presiding over a medieval court, stingily withholding Pepsi from desiring performers until Amaro comes and puts him in his place (in this case, the dungeon, which was also inhabited by Flavor Flav) with her take on Aretha Franklin's "Respect."
