In the tidal wave of Super Bowl media coverage, of course we’re going to have people asking who Beyoncé identifies with most in the sports world. In fact, I’m surprised it took this long. From the video interview with ESPN: I definitely identify with Kobe Bryant, as far as his work ethic. I can always see that he’s focused. He works harder than I could ever imagine. It’s just like he’s in the zone. He’s just undeniable as far as his talent and his gift.
