The streak continues.
According to reports from SBNation.com, the NFL will continue the recent tradition of lame-ass halftime performances by enlisting the disgustingly unwelcome and past-the-expiration-date services of former sex icon (and current 53-year-old mother of 37) Madonna to perform at halftime of Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis.
Though this is unfortunate on many levels, I suppose nothing could be worse than last year’s crap-tastic performance from the Black Eyed Peas. One really has to wonder who is in charge of booking the NFL’s entertainment, not just for the Super Bowl, but all of their marquee events.
I understand that the League is trying to market itself to wide range of consumers, but have we not, as a nation, had enough of Kid Rock?
Seriously, someone needs to take a stand and stop giving him work.
But, back to Madonna.
She has long since been relevant and longer since been attractive. Had she followed through on plans to perform at the big game in 1998, pre-Janet Jackson’s Tittygate, it probably would have been worth a glance. Now … not so much.
It should be noted that the NFL has yet to confirm the Madonna reports, so there is still hope that they will come to their senses.
I hear Cyndi Lauper is available.
