Outfits from singer Beyonce’s Super Bowl performance and music videos will debut at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in a section previously featuring only Hall of Famers.

The Rock Hall announced Friday that the outfits will be shown starting Tuesday in its Legends of Rock section, next to iconic pieces from Michael Jackson, David Bowie and Bruce Springsteen.

Beyonce would be eligible for induction into the Rock Hall as a member of Destiny’s Child in 2022 and as a solo artist in 2027.

The exhibit in Cleveland, Ohio, will feature Beyonce’s ubiquitous black leotard from her “Single Ladies” music video, as well as her body suit, skirt and jacket from her Super Bowl performance last year in New Orleans.

Actor says Christie is ‘buddy’

Dwayne Johnson says he considers New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie “a buddy” despite making Christie take down an online video that featured the Hollywood star.

“I know Gov. Christie. We’ve met a couple of times,” the wrestler-turned-action star said Friday. “But in no way was I associated with what he had going on. He had his team of people around him who kind of put that together. I saw it. I was like well, I don’t have anything to do with it, so now you’ve got to pull it down.”

Christie’s office last week removed Johnson from a trailer that it posted to YouTube for a mock summer blockbuster titled “No Pain. No Gain,” a riff on the title of Johnson’s film “Pain & Gain.”

The trailer features clips of Christie warning of an impending budget crisis, along with dramatic music and sound effects. The clip is cut together with scenes of explosions and car chases.

Johnson, 42, says he’s “more patriotic than I am political.”

“I have good friends who are politicians on both sides,” he said in the interview. “Clinton is a good buddy of mine, Obama is a good buddy of mine. A multitude of people who are buddies.”
