    The 34-minute blackout at Super Bowl XLVII on Sunday, February 3 was not Beyoncé's fault. The power at the Superdome in New Orleans went out for just over a half-hour at the top of the third quarter in the second half, after Bey's halftime performance. It has been determined that it's not her fault.

    NFL commissioner Roger Goodell says Bey is free and clear of blame and/or guilt.

    Goodell said, "There's no indication at all that this was caused by the half-time show. I know that’s out there, that Beyoncé's halftime show had something to do with it. That is not the case from anything we have at this point."

    Actually, Bey's performance was powered by an offsite generator, so it's nearly impossible for her to have been the culprit.

    Did you think Beyoncé had anything to do with the power outage when it was happening in real time? What did you think of the big game?
