I was not especially interested in the Super Bowl this year — as evidenced by my slightly snarky, but not-so-clever Live Tweeting of the event. But I was fascinated by Madonna’s display at half time. What began as this post-modern melting of ancient art and pop music, ended with an underwhelming non-specific message of “WORLD PEACE.” Besides that, it was as though she called up every celefriend and asked them to perform with her (I sort of imagine, Cee Lo Green and company were the hodge-podge who didn’t say no).
And she became Lady Gaga’s precursor and wanna-be with her array of ostentatious costumes and ridiculous dance moves – homegirl should not attempt acrobatics on stage at her age. Take cartwheels off the special skills section of your resume.
For what it’s worth, she was out there.
But is that really what we’re going to ask of performers?
I don’t even know what I think about this one.
Any reasonable explanations out there?
