While you ponder some important questions about Beyonce — Did she lip sync the national anthem at the Inauguration? Will she lip sync the Super Bowl XLVII halftime show? Does it matter if she does? What? She sings? — you can check out her preparations for Sunday’s big show on her website.

She has posted rehearsal pictures at (the gallery starts with a nice little photo of her impersonating Ed Hochuli) and will meet with the media Thursday in New Orleans. So far, she hasn’t addressed the controversy about whether she really sang at the Inauguration.

Nor is there any word about whether Sunday’s halftime show might include a reunion with Destiny’s Child.

And then there’s the rumor that she made outrageous diva-like demands of the NFL. The league squelched that one, with Brian McCarthy, the vice-president for communications, telling, “Beyonce and her team have been great to work with throughout this process. . . . We have enjoyed her creativity, vision and spirit in putting on a great show that is truly a Super Bowl performance.”
