Being in the spotlight has got to be tough. At any given moment unfortunate photos of you can be snapped and shared at light speed.
Wardrobe malfunctions happen so we all must do our part to help the victims. If you happen to see an unflattering photo of Beyonce's Super Bowl performance, her publicists have asked that you not share the photo. Like this one for example:
Sometimes a girl just can't help it when part of her labia hangs out of her carefully selected stage
There hasn't been a Super Bowl half time show to be excited about in a long time. And for us, we prefer to have a team from the NFC North in the game, in particular the Packers. We'll root for the others though, even the Vikings if, well...you know. But we didn't have much else going on so we tuned in this year to watch the battling brothers.
When Janet Jackson's boob was mysteriously exposed in 2004 we weren't in the room. It was just our son who was seven at the time. Not a big deal, it's a boob. He doesn't even remember it.
This year, however, he's sixteen and was watching with his two younger sisters next to him on the couch. Now, I don't know for sure if his normal biological nature kicked in but I'm sympathetic to the plight of the average sixteen-year-old boy who struggles with the wind blowing much less a strip tease on the big screen in front of him.
RLB came in the room half way through and asked how it was going. I told him the poor girl is in heat and has had to resort to rubbing her own self, the least they could have done was give her a pole.
Now, I give the girl mega props for keeping a bod as fit as she has (a year after giving birth) and I like a lot of her music. But this show did nothing to show her talent. We've seen her dance much better than this. And headbanging to "Halo"? It was lost on me.
I'm no prude either, one of my favorite performances of this kind is Pink's 2010 Grammy performance of "Glitter in the Air". Demonstrating that an artist certainly can combine erotic with unbelievable talent:
You won't see that this year unless there are a few rebels that will go against CBS's memo: "Please be sure that buttocks and female breasts are adequately covered. Thong type costumes are problematic. Please avoid exposing bare fleshy under curves of the buttocks and buttock crack. Bare sides or under curvature of the breasts is also problematic. Please avoid sheer see-through clothing that could possibly expose female breast nipples. Please be sure the genital region is adequately covered so that there is no visible 'puffy' bare skin exposure."
Oh, every last bit of it makes me laugh.
