Hey there, I'm Karli Bulnes. Madonna is gearing up for a monumental February, with not one but two big gigs ahead. Get the details about her Super Bowl halftime performance and latest directorial project in PopSugar Rush. "So Madonna will take the stage at the Lucas Oil Stadium on February 5th." The NFL announced Sunday that megastar Madonna is the 2012 Super Bowl halftime peformer. This is the first time Madonna will take the stage at the sporting event, though she follows in a long line of pop performers that include The Black Eyed Peas, who rocked it out last year, Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, and *NSYNC [NAT pop if it flows well]. Madonna's Super Bowl show is said to be a collaboration with Cirque du Soleil, and it's possible that it might include some new songs since she's reportedly putting out a new album next year. 2012 will also be the year Madonna releases her latest directorial project, W.E., which she screened last night at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Madonna arrived alone in an all black ensemble to pose for pictures before making her way inside to watch the film. W.E. is set to premiere two days before Super Bowl Sunday, on Friday, February 3rd.
