She twisted her hips in ways that appeared to defy the laws of physics, but on Sunday night, everyone was watching Beyonce’s lips. After the pop uber-star admitted to lip-syncing the national anthem at President Obama’s inauguration, her performance during the big game in New Orleans may have been the most hyper-scrutinized halftime show of all time. There was plenty to look at. Clad in leather and lace, the 31-year-old gyrated to a pyro-punctuated medley of hits – “Crazy in Love,” “Halo,” “Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It)”– that last one, plus “Bootylicious,” with
Comments: You mean brings trash to the Superbowl? Bootylicious?? Oh sigh. Sadly, in the past moves like she performed were only seen in strip clubs. Now it´s the norm. How inspiring that a first lady sees her as a role model. s/o
At least it wasn´t a strip show like that nJackson chick or the foul mouth show last year. I get the NFL wants to attract young viewers. I get Beyonce has a young fan base. But next year, put on a C&W group like Big and Rich of Garth or someone that has good music and loves America. Of course Mochelle wouldn´t be proud of them but who cares.
Beyonce & Bootylicious should have been preceded by an R rating so that parents and anyone with a modicum of taste could take a break. "Alright, kids go finish your homework while Mom and I clean up from dinner."
Just surprised that CBS sycophants didn´t have cameras focused on Mooch applauding and Obama dancing during this tasteless and boring 15 minute spectacle. "Barack, honey, you are Obamalicious."
Unintelligible audio, of boring repetitiously-lyric´d ´music´, accompanied by the mandatory gangsta ´shake-yo-booty´ ´dances´, presented in typical MTV cut-from-camera-to-camera-every half-second style, from a 4th-rate talent who reached her peak in the 3rd Austin Powers flick.
I don´t generally watch ball games of any kind but, my 30 year old son does so once in a while and had the game on and I didn´t leave the room so I saw most of it. I got the distinct impression that the people who came to see the ´half-time show´ weren´t necessarily the same people who came to see the game. Of course, I wouldn´t have walked 50 feet to see either of them so I could be mistaken I suppose. In so much as the show was concerned, I didn´t see any real talent on display - even the choreography was uninspiring and dull.
I liked it, especially her teaming up with the other two members of Destiny´s Child singing ´´All The Single Ladies.´´ I thought the light show was amazing. Probably contributed to the overload of the electrical breakers, though.
I did not care for Alicia Keys´ version of the Nat´l Anthem but the Sandy Hook kids were good singing America with Jennifer Hudson.
I also enjoyed the Superbowl except for the referees who must´ve swallowed their whistles on the last play. Too bad for SF.
New Orleans did a great job hosting the festivities this year and CBS´s pre-game feature on the Big Easy with Wynton Marsalis made me wish I was back there to enjoy it.
For the last few years the halftime show has been terrible. Viewers switch the channel at the half and return for the third quarter. They dont need to waste money for this trash. Fans are going to watch this game in spite of the halftime show.
One of the trashiest performances I´ve ever seen anywhere.
The children from Sandy Hook Elementary School were beautiful and pure. And Jennifer Hudson´s performance with them on the second verse of "America the Beautiful", after they´d sung the first verse, was understated and in perfect taste. Dressed simply in an elegant straight white skirt and black blouse, her hair pulled back. No glitz, no overt sexiness. Perfect.
This stuff used to be called "burlesque". You snuck in with hat, darkglasses and collar up. Cost about 25 cents which is just about what Beyonce is worth. The one who played the piano like a kindergartner was also a real joke.
A halftime show dedicated to Satan. The firey outline that 1st appeared was in the shape of a goats head w/horns.. and all closeups of Beyonce showed a demonic, possessed look on her face. Someone commented that she looked happier than the audience... Happy? no... Relishing in her public perversion? yes.
Remember when Ed Sullivan directed the cameras to shoot Elvis above the waist because he gyrated his hips? At least he was good looing and dressed in a suit. Thunder thighs and matching derriere, Beyondme, made Elvis look like a Sunday school teacherr.
WASHINGTON -- A longtime adviser to the U.S. Director of National Intelligence has resigned after the government learned he has worked since 2010 as a paid consultant for Huawei Technologies Ltd., the Chinese technology company the U.S. has condemned as an espionage threat, The Associated Press has learned. Theodore H. Moran, a respected expert on China´s international investment and professor at Georgetown University, had served since 2007 as adviser to the intelligence director´s advisory panel on foreign investment in the United States. Moran also was an adviser to the National Intelligence Council,
DEVELOPING: – An elderly U.S. tourist and war veteran detained for more than a month for alleged hostile acts against North Korea has been deported from that country. North Korean state media said Saturday 85-year-old Merrill Newman was released because he had apologized for his alleged crimes during the Korean War and because of his age and medical condition. It was not clear if his confession was coerced. He was taken off a plane Oct. 26 by North Korean authorities while preparing to leave the country after a 10-day tour. Vice President Joe Biden is currently in South Korea on
At the "Fast Food Forward" protest on Thursday, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) demanded that Pres. Obama sign an executive order bypassing Congress and unilaterally raising the federal minimum wage. Rep. Ellison told the crowd that they should join him in demanding that Pres. Obama skip seeking Congressional approval and raise the minimum wage on his own - and that he sent the president a letter on Wednesday presenting his demand: "We in Congress will try to raise the minimum wage. We got opponents on the other side of the aisle who say that there shouldn´t be no minimum wage. So, we
Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan joined WSJ Live host Mary Kissel on Friday where they discussed the ongoing issues associated with the implementation of the Affordable Care Act. Noonan said she found the way in which this administration has handled this crisis has been among the “oddest” she’s seen. Noonan added that she would like to see “humility” from President Barack Obama rather than combativeness. Kissel began by asking about the “puzzle” of the president’s response to the crisis surrounding the ACA’s faltering website. “I look at the White House the past two months, I think the president and
Another leftist lets the mask slip. Jonathan Alter believes that violent criminals imprisoned for their crimes are political prisoners. He and Al Sharpton talked to themselves on MSNBC today. Sharpton asked Alter what America might learn from the example of Nelson Mandela. Reasonable answers to this question include but are not limited to: Don’t abuse political power to punish your enemies; don’t hold on to political power forever; choose your wife or husband a bit more carefully; don’t seek to divide when unity serves the nation better. Alter wants America to learn a different lesson. None of the above. Alter
As Congress gets ready to battle on immigration reform next year, it´s important to take a look at who will help enforce and shape any kind of immigration overhaul. Former Department of Justice Assistant Attorney General and radical open borders attorney Tom Perez was safely put into the position of Labor Secretary by President Obama and the Senate earlier this year, knowing the Department of Justice is safely locked down as pro-amnesty. Perez has a long history of advocating not for American workers, but for illegal alien workers and made sure the Department of Justice was stacked with pro-amnesty attorneys
Barack Obama delivered a statement on the passing of Nelson Mandela yesterday. During his speech he told about his first public speech on apartheid at Occidental College. “I am one of the countless millions who drew inspiration from Nelson Mandela’s life. My very first political action, the first thing I ever did that involved an issue or a policy or politics, was a protest against apartheid. I studied his words and his writings.” But, Barack Obama forgot to mention that his speech at Occidental was sponsored by Marxists and Weatherman terrorists. Barack Obama’s first public speech was at an Occidental College event
I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. For me it was always Oswald by himself from the Texas School Book Depository and nothing in the intervening fifty years has disabused me of this notion. For the most part, I’m an Occam’s Razor kind of guy — the most obvious explanation is likely to be true. (Snip) To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me. Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
Hardly a week goes by without Hillary Clinton receiving another award. Last month she was named a “Global Champion” by the International Medical Corps, received the American Patriot Award at the National Defense University Foundation and the Hermandad Award from the Mexican American Leadership Initiative. [Snip] At this rate, if a bunch of elderly left-wing Swedes toss her the Nobel Peace Prize early on, the way they did to Obama, it will barely rate mention among all the other glittering trophies that have been bestowed on a woman whose only actual accomplishment was being married to a crooked governor with
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
In February, the Bush family’s personal emails were hacked by Guccifer, a hacker who uncovered photographs of former President George H. W. Bush in a hospital bed and George W. Bush’s oil paintings in the process. It seems Guccifer has struck again, this time targeting former President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Library. The hacker has reportedly uncovered doodles of Clinton drawing on what were, at the time, classified documents. Among the doodles is apparently a picture of a penis. The document uncovered is a briefing of the strategic measures the United States could take prior Clinton’s decision to intervene in
Denver - A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday. The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple "because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage." The order says the cake-maker must "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay
Amid an array of “knock-out” attacks against a number of Jews in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood, a city councilwoman pointed to the success of the Jewish community as triggering the aggression. Councilwoman-elect Laurie Cumbo emphasized that while she “admire[s] the Jewish community immensely” for its work ethic, black teens may see it differently. “While I personally regard this level of tenacity, I also recognize that for others, the accomplishments of the Jewish community triggers feelings of resentment, and a sense that Jewish success is not also their success,” Cumbo, who was recently elected, wrote in a letter. Chief among the issues
