Those of you who watched the Super Bowl last night saw a few things. If you were into the game, like I was, you saw the Packers beat the Steelers in one of the more exciting games in recent memory. If you’re a Big Ben hater, you saw “The Rapist” get his karmic revenge. If you’re a Brett Favre hater, you saw him get his karmic revenge. Hmm…a lot of moral victories last night, eh?
The halftime show was a visual spectacle that was unfortunately delivered to us courtesy of The Black Eyed Peas. Was it awful? No. Was it good? Absolutely not. Was it probably the worst Super Bowl halftime show in a decade (since the Kid Rock and Nelly crotch-grabbing debacle)? Yeah, probably. But, at least The Black Eyed Peas (and the corpse of Slash…oh yeah, and that guy who manages Justin Bieber was in there too) got all the words right to their songs. Granted, their songs aren’t exactly lyrical masterpieces, but still…
How do you freeze up and forget the words to the national anthem? Especially when you’ve been singing the song your whole life? Let’s ask Christina Aguilera, who muffed the words to “The Star Spangled Banner” prior to the game. Hell, even her mistake (or “mistake”, for those who feel that she messed up the words for publicity purposes) wasn’t as bad as the fact that she oooooooOOOOOooooo-ver-SUUUUuuuuuuuunnngOOOOOHHHHYEAH!! the entire fucking song.
Some songs don’t call for extended vocal workouts, Christina.
Maybe next year, they just replay Prince’s halftime show from a few years back and before the game, run a tape of Marvin Gaye smoothing out the National Anthem back in 1983?
