While the mid-game power cut was more talked about, the general consensus buzzing around the net is that Beyonce and her D Child sisters killed it at the Super Bowl (and that she sang live).

And, as is often the case, as quickly as all the big news agencies had snaps of her half-time show, so too did her website, I Am Beyonce. The wire image coverage had unfortunate shots like the below, but they also had more-posed snaps; however her own site's shot (in the image above) looked suspiciously too glam for someone who was in the middle of a dancing frenzy. 

The 31-year-old's legs look extra svelte in her own shot and her hair appears perfectly coiffed, while it looked flatter throughout the entire video of the show.

Yes, this could be a case of a good pose, but we trawled all other image sources and couldn't find a single snap were she looked as picture perfect.

One astute Stuff reader has even noticed that she's not wearing gloves in her approved image. So perhaps it was taken during a dress rehearsal in photo-shoot flattering conditions and jazzed up to look like the real thing.

"As little as we know about Beyonce, we do know that she likes control," said Anne Helen Petersen of Gawker when Beyonce's I Am site was launched. "And by releasing information herself, she's controlling the conversation about her. Point is: Beyonce is re-sparking conversation about her, but only if it's on her terms."

Maybe her terms are perfect hair (to be fair, they'd probably be ours).
