Michelle Williams DENIES That Destiny’s Child Will Perform At Super Bowl XLVII


OK, so remember how we learned and took as GOSPEL that Destiny’s Child would be reuniting during the Super Bowl halftime show next weekend as part of headliner Beyoncé‘s solo performance? Yeah, well, according to one member of DChild, the reunion is NOT taking place. Michelle Williams was asked about the much ballyhooed Destiny’s Child reunion and she made a face … then hemmed and hawed a bit about rumors … then flat out said that the reunion wasn’t going to happen. HMMMM. Could Michelle just be playing with us to hype up the reunion (which was supposed to be a surprise) or she giving us the 411 right now that next Sunday’s Super Bowl halftime show is going to be all about Beyoncé and NOT about DChild?

Michelle Williams has denied that Destiny’s Child are to reunite during Beyonce’s eagerly-anticipated Super Bowl performance. Beyonce is gearing up to take to the stage this Sunday (February 3) at the Mercedes Benz Superdome in New Orleans. Earlier this month, it was reported that her former bandmates Williams and Kelly Rowland will join her during the show and last week their setlist was apparently revealed. The reunited trio were supposedly due to play a three-track medley, consisting of ‘Bills, Bills, Bills’, ‘Survivor’ and new song ‘Nuclear’. However, Williams has now dismissed these reports, telling WRUG Radio: “That’s not confirmed. It is rumoured. I’m gonna be in the musical Fela!. I hate to disappoint the people and tell them that it’s not true.”

See … I don’t know about this. It makes PERFECT sense for Destiny’s Child to reunite, even for only a short performance, during the Super Bowl show next weekend but … would Michelle Williams, a godly woman, lie to us like this? The skeptic in me says yes, this denial is further confirmation of the reunion but … nothing would surprise me at this point. What do y’all think? Do you believe Michelle?

    What if B performs songs from Destiny’s Child all by herself? That is my only guess at the moment!

  • nicole

    she might be trying to get the surprise factor back.

    Trent, ‘would Michelle Williams, a godly woman, lie to us like this?’ LOLOLOL! I KNOW, right? We’re gonna pull her Christian card if it turns out she played us! But ultimately, I do hope she’s just trying to keep this a surprise. It’ll be such a bummer if it doesn’t happen!

    • Joan

      Yeah, I think she’s pulling a J.J. Abrams.

  • Lisbeth Slander

    It’s gonna be damn hard for B to top Madonna’s performance from last year, but with the help of Kelly and Michelle and their arsenal of arse shaking jams, they’ll at least come closer to doing so.

  • DJ

    Perhaps they chose not to cuz Nuclear is such a bomb of a song. If they do wind up performing, they need to stick to their awesome hits. Make it Bootylicious!!!

    Don’t get me wrong, I love me some Beyonce, but literally the only reason I cared about her being the half time performer was because of the possibility of a DC reunion. My bf just told me the only song he knows is Survivor so I had to spend an hour schooling him with the help of Shannon’s post on why destiny’s child was the best.

    I got a flyer in the mail for her FELA run down here… and it said Superstar formerly of Destiny Child…LOL… really Michelle, you were the superstar of DC….that still makes me laugh….
