Beyonce runs the world, girls (and boys)

Raise your hand if you're a teensy bit frightened of Beyoncé.

Between the Super Bowl show; the hardcore work ethic ("[I] practice until my feet bleed" will be the new mantra of aspiring performers everywhere); the insane GQ magazine cover a year after giving birth to Blue Ivy; an upcoming HBO documentary she put together; another new album and now a world tour, we're fairly sure she was sent here to either rule us or destroy us all.

Even her celebrity cohorts deferred to her greatness after yesterday's show.

"...and @Beyonce just made all the rest of us singers look stupid! In the most awesome way possible! Way to work it! #BestEverHalftimeShow," "American Idol" winner Carrie Underwood tweeted.

"Good GOD Beyonce is one of the greatest performers to have ever walked this planet.. She's KILLING IT!!!!!" Demi Lovato tweeted. "I just really don't think Beyonce is human ... Y'all can keep watching the game but I think it's safe to say Beyonce just won the Super Bowl."

She also apparently killed "Pitch Perfect" star Anna Kendrick: "Beyonce = everything. I'm dying. I've died. I am dead. #IRegretNothing"

And recruited Samuel L. Jackson to her team: "I'm in the DON'T GIVE A F*** IF IT'S PRE-RECORDED OR NOT club!! B's putting' in WURK!!!!"

Queen Bey received love from her sister Solange - "No. One. Better," she posted Sunday - as well as from the White House.

"Watching the #SuperBowl with family & friends. @Beyonce was phenomenal!" First Lady Michelle Obama tweeted. "I am so proud of her!"

Chimed in Justin Timberlake, "Yes, B. Yes. Roasted that... #KINGBEY."

And as for that power outage? "That's Texas baby," said Erykah Badu. "Beyonce blew the power out."

The 31-year-old entertainer isn't pausing there, and announced an upcoming global jaunt following her halftime performance.

Called "The Mrs. Carter Show," Bey will head to Europe first on April 15 before swinging back to North America on June 28.

Dublin, Paris, Berlin and London are among the 20 cities she'll visit, making this her first multi-city tour in over three years, a statement says.

When she touches down in North America June 28, she'll perform first in Los Angeles before swinging through Las Vegas, NV; Dallas, TX; Miami, FL; Atlanta, GA; Chicago, IL; Boston, MA; Philadelphia, PA; and Toronto, ON, among other cities. Of course, her stomping grounds of Houston, TX and Brooklyn, NY are also on the list.

Expected to run for almost a year in length, "The Mrs. Carter Show" will also visit Latin America, Asia and Australia.

Ticket sales for the general public begin February 8 for dates in Europe, and on February 11 for dates in North America. You can find more info on

    She is a Texas girl with a great voice. However, she will never be one of the Big Guns! Like Jimi Hendrix, Etta James or the Stones.
    Note: The lights/power failure was just a distraction during this super bowl. Even my 13 year old daughter was bored during the peformance. I was thinking that the power outage upstaged or stole the show from Beyonce. Who had more electricity? You tell me!

    She has no class and is just another receptical for JayZ and his pals.

  18. Ha!

    Just another scantily clad, bedroom noise maker. In twenty years when her looks are gone she will be another Madonna, prancing around making a fool of herself.

      She is hot, but I agree, it's time for her to bathe in a kiddie pool filled with pungent butt nuggets.

      A dung bath can do wonders for the appearance of absolutely anyone.

      You mioght think bathing in feces is amusing – but when your in hospital with toxic shock syndrome I bet you wont be laughing when nurses are cleaning your bottom from the same fecesy you thought were so amusing. #Pooisdeadly

      You know a dung bath could really do you some good. It might just help you get over this irrational fear of butt dumplings.

    If she sang as much as she shook her butt I may have been impressed.

    A good dancer, strong voice, but average music. I wouldn't see her if you paid me. Still better than Madonna last year! Adele's the real queen!
