There’s no question that Madonna rocks a hard body, especially at the age of 53 but is she someone you want to see perform during the Super Bowl halftime show? Many people on facebook and twitter loved it while others hated it. When we asked our facebook fans what they thought, similar responses poured in.
While there was no wardrobe malfunction (Janet Jackson’s 2004 nip slip) the NFL and NBC found themselves apologizing for M.I.A.’s flying of the bird. M.I.A. was on of several acts that joined the material girl on stage. Millions of people witness the singer (M.I.A not Madonna) flip the camera off and appeared to sing “I don’t give a (bbeeeep)” at one point. .
“The obscene gesture in the performance was completely inappropriate, very disappointing and we apologize to our fans,” said Brian McCarthy, spokesman for the NFL, which produced Madonna’s halftime show.
Madonna mixed her performance with new and familiar songs. During the opening of the show she was carried in by a gaggle of muscled up dudes. It was pretty obvious that her performance was lip synced but sadly that’s become the norm.
The one comment that continues to surface is, she looked great… for her age. People aren’t saying she looked great but rather great for her age which prompts the question, do people want to see Madonna perform during the Super Bowl?
While the verdict is still out on whether Madonna won people over with her performance, the Giants defeated the Patriots 21-17.
