Beyonce gives fans sneak peek

US superstar Beyonce has given fans a taste of what is to come ahead of her performance at this weekend's Super Bowl.

The 31-year-old singer dazzled as a sexy football referee as she prepares to take centre stage at America's biggest sporting event.

She seems to have shrugged off the controversy over her alleged non-performance at President Obama's inauguration.

Wearing a pair of black leather hot pants teamed with a black and white pinstriped top, the singer is already stirring up a frenzy of anticipation for Sunday's show.

Beyonce showed off her curves with a pair of daring thigh-high leather boots, while sporting black marks on her face and holding an American football in her hands.

She has added several new pictures of herself in rehearsal via her Instagram site, including shots of her lying on the ground laughing. Another photograph showed her sporting a striped jumpsuit.
