Let us indulge for just one minute and be really honest with ourselves… we all watched the Super Bowl so we could see Beyonce give the most fabulous halftime show of our lifetime. The woman is a goddess and no one can fault you for wanting to witness her vocal skills and dance moves that put all of us to shame (except for my friend Zach, he really should have been her backup). She IS Sasha Fierce! You can protest all you want and say “no, I watched it for the game!”, child please! The first half of that game put people to sleep.
Over 108 Million Americans watched the Super Bowl this last Sunday, making it the third most watched televised event in U.S. History. You think men running around the field in tight pants get that kind of viewing action on the regular!? No, they do not. On that note, can we please talk about the fact that football is truly a game for grown men to run around a field, chasing and jumping on each other in hopes of winning a piece of JEWELRY! Also, I really think the Raves should send me a pair of their game tights because I would like to wear them to the gym… I will take whatever sizeJones was wearing because he has nice legs… Moving on.
The power outage nearly stole Beyonces thunder and the haters who said she lip-synced at the inauguration went so far as to say her show blew a fuse or some such nonsense. The truth is, some nerdy hacker probably thought it would be fun to mess with the largest sporting event of the season to spite all his piers who never picked him for their teams in flag football. Beyonce is blameless; let’s just face the facts, she runs the world and that’s all there is to it. Not to mention bringing back part of Destinies Child for the performance was as classy as it was inspired. Beyonce is a woman who knows how to work a crowd, and bringing back our favorite lady vocalists from the early millennia was certainly a pleaser.
I won’t lie I was a little disappointed Mr.Carter didn’t make an appearance but we can’t have everything. Plus he was just being a good dad and sat at home with Blue Ivy to watch mommy perform. That’s another thing, Beyonce is a MOTHER! She gave her first performance merely five months after giving birth! Is it just me or is that crazy? Thus further proving her super woman abilities.
Now that you have all accepted the fact that yes, you did indeed watch the Ravens play the 49ers to watch Beyonce sing her heart out, you may all go back to living in denial and pretending you watched the game for what it was, a fine display of man muscle and showmanship.
