Beyonce brings sexy back
to Super Bowl halftime

Washington Post, by Chris Richards

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

Skanky trash! I thought the show was inappropriate for a family TV event.

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.

I don´t want a sexy halftime show. I want to see some talent. I decided to go check my email and surf the internet when that show started.

I can´t stand Beyonce, her low-class husband and the endless hype over whether or not the press gets a glimpse of their baby daughter.

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.

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.

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.

After a facing a bruising defeat over President Obama´s pick for a key Justice Department post this month, the White House is carefully weighing how to move forward with the president´s pick for surgeon general. The nomination has drawn heckles from gun rights advocates. A senior administration official, who requested anonymity to talk about White House strategy on the nomination, stressed that the White House hasn´t given up on confirming Vivek Murthy, who is perhaps best known for founding Doctors for America, a group that campaigned for Obama´s health care law. But after Obama´s nominee to oversee the Justice Department´s Civil Rights Division,

Obama told Putin that the Crimea vote -- more than 95 percent favored joining Russia -- “violates the Ukrainian constitution and occurred under duress of Russian military intervention,” according to a White House readout of the call. “President Obama reiterated that a diplomatic resolution cannot be achieved while Russian military forces continue their incursions into Ukrainian territory and that the large-scale Russian

The Obama administration’s decision to relinquish oversight over the group that manages the Internet’s architecture has raised an early red flag with Republicans, who blast the move as a threat to free speech. The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers has managed the Web’s domain-name system under contract with the U.S. government for more than a decade — but the Los Angeles-based nonprofit has worked to transform itself into a global organization free of U.S. ties.

Federal health officials dropped regulations late Friday outlining how they plan to help insurance companies stuck with unanticipated costs due to ObamaCare´s botched rollout. In a 279-page document, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) detailed adjustments to the healthcare law´s "risk corridors" program, a means for shifting money from insurers who fare better under the new system to those who fare worse. Risk corridors have been decried by conservatives as a bailout that could leave taxpayers on the hook for billions of dollars.

Police are investigating the possibility that the pilot of missing Flight MH370 hijacked his own aircraft in a bizarre political protest. The Mail on Sunday has learned that Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah was an ‘obsessive’ supporter of Malaysia’s opposition leader, Anwar Ibrahim. And hours before the doomed flight left Kuala Lumpur it is understood 53-year-old Shah attended a controversial trial in which Ibrahim was jailed for five years. Campaigners say the politician, the key challenger to Malaysia’s ruling party, was the victim of a long-running smear campaign and had faced trumped-up charges.

By now it’s settled on most people, including Democrats, that the loss of Alex Sink to David Jolly in Florida’s 13th Congressional District was, in the words of the New York Times, “devastating” to Democrats. It’s a district Ms. Sink carried in her unsuccessful race for governor against Rick Scott, a district that Barack Obama carried in his two elections, and a district that demographically now favors Democrats. In addition, Ms. Sink raised more money and ran a better campaign than Jolly. Even Bill Clinton lent his efforts to her campaign. And yet she lost. What should particularly alarm Democrats is

Late night comedian Bill Maher told his HBO “Real Time” audience on Friday that God was a “psychotic mass murderer.” He made the comments during a conversation on the biblical story of Noah and the upcoming Hollywood version of it that’s about to hit the big screen. “But the thing that’s really disturbing about Noah isn’t the silly, it’s that it’s immoral. It’s about a psychotic mass murderer who gets away with it, and his name is God,” Mr. Maher said, adding, “What kind of tyrant punishes everyone just to get back at the few he’s mad at? I mean, besides

It’s been less than six months since Bret Stephens used a version of this headline, but four events in the last week have caused it to scream in my mind. Before I get into those four events, let me say that I understand the only way to stay remotely sane in Washington, D.C., is to ignore 85 percent of whatever is trending at any given moment. That said, there are times anyone less isolated than a Carthusian monk is unavoidably exposed to “news” that 25 years ago would be considered fit only for National Enquirer. The four events that have disturbed

The Rev. Fred Phelps Sr., founder of the hate-fueled Westboro Baptist Church, is at “the edge of death,” his son reports. Nathan Phelps, who fled the infamous Kansas church more than 30 years ago, claims his notorious father was kicked out of the congregation he built and is now spending his final days in hospice care. “I´ve learned that my father, Fred Phelps, Sr., pastor of the "God Hates (deleted to clear site filter)" Westboro Baptist Church, was ex-communicated from the ‘church’ back in August of 2013,” Nathan Phelps wrote on Facebook. “He is now on the edge of death at

A top Republican campaigning for immigration reform is warning that America needs at least 1 million more immigrants every year just for basic farming and construction jobs, not ban like some in the party are advocating. Carlos Gutierrez, Commerce secretary under former President George W. Bush, said that without more immigrants, businesses won´t be able to grow because there aren´t enough workers available. And helping them could boost the Republican Party, added the former Kellogg Co. executive. Speaking at a Republican confab, he said that comprehensive immigration reform passed in the Senate and rejected by

An interview yesterday offers proof that Sarah Palin has really gotten under Obama’s skin. In the midst of a friendly on-the-air radio interview with Ryan Seacrest, President Obama offered us a rare glimpse inside the presidential mind, revealing how deeply he was stung by the gibes he has received ever since wearing mom jeans when throwing out the first pitch at the 2009 All Star Game. In the midst of a discussion of his recent shopping trip to The Gap, the President stated: “I’ve been unfairly maligned about my jeans,” (snip) It is quite obvious that the reason the 2009 mockery

BOSTON- Boston´s Irish-American mayor will not march in the city´s St. Patrick´s Day parade on Sunday after failing to hammer out a deal with organizers to allow a group of gay and lesbian activists to march openly. Mayor Marty Walsh had tried to negotiate a deal with organizers, the conservative Allied War Veteran´s Council, to allow members of MassEquality, one of Massachusetts´ largest gay activist groups, to join the parade. "So much of our Irish history has been shaped by the fight against oppression," Walsh, the city´s first Irish-American mayor in 20 years, said in a statement. "As mayor of
