mh: everyone who buys us or people or star or whatever the hell sure does. She was watermelon big at the grammys, it got a lot of press. the oscar thing with rahman was huge international news for like a week.

iirc Music was one of the last commercial bootleg discs i bought from a guy on the street

do people listen or buy music based on those, though? I dunno, I guess they might

Did she just slip on the bleachers?

supposedly the network tried to blur the finger a second late!

i was laughing my ass off at the cleopatra intro, it was so absurd. everything else sucked

Assmaster (Hungry4Ass), Monday, 6 February 2012 05:46 (2 years ago) Permalink

Why do you think she sucked? I thought that was the second most entertaining halftime show of the past decade after Prince (which is fitting, really)

actually half time show wa decent dan, hate madonna bending ppl who should know better to her will, but shur tis all about da moolah

Michael B Higgins (Michael B), Monday, 6 February 2012 06:05 (2 years ago) Permalink

dan, mostly because of song choices i guess (i think Music sucks, and I think whatever that new pile of crap is, is crap), and Vogue didnt really get a fair shake with the medley treatment. from a production standpoint it was pretty good though

Assmaster (Hungry4Ass), Monday, 6 February 2012 06:31 (2 years ago) Permalink

I enjoyed the show. I especially liked the Vogue and Open My Heart parts. If people weren't going to like it then why watch it? I guess hate watching is the thing to do.

Tired of these edcuated basic bitches. (lilsoulbrother), Monday, 6 February 2012 06:47 (2 years ago) Permalink

i was watching the game and didnt feel like changing the channel during halftime.

Assmaster (Hungry4Ass), Monday, 6 February 2012 06:51 (2 years ago) Permalink

i didn't watch it to hate it. it just happened.

"bruh" is the black bro (forksclovetofu), Monday, 6 February 2012 06:59 (2 years ago) Permalink

i don't have much invested in madonna at this point. and i hate pro sports w/passion. still i wanted to like this. honestly it reeked of desperation. nikki! MIA!! pom-poms!!! medley!!!! C-LO!!!!! gospel choir!!!!! WORLD PEACE

and seeing her cavort with those LMFAO goons was flat-out depressing

demolition with discretion (m coleman), Monday, 6 February 2012 10:41 (2 years ago) Permalink

had to laugh at LMFAO pretending to use Pioneer CDJs live, miming doing a loop on them.

piscesx, Monday, 6 February 2012 11:37 (2 years ago) Permalink

haha I didn't even think about that ^

crüt, Monday, 6 February 2012 11:38 (2 years ago) Permalink

I didn't think it was awful. I liked "Open Your Heart" too but wished she'd done Express Yourself. Anyway, like A Prayer is one of my favorite songs so I was pretty excited about that. Think it's pretty clear that the star was totally that crazy tightrope walking guy.

wolf kabob (ENBB), Monday, 6 February 2012 12:06 (2 years ago) Permalink

I loved it except for "Like a Prayer" (a song I've never liked, so it wasn't the performance). Thought "Vogue" was fantastic, "Music" was great because of LMFAO, and after first thinking the new video saved a just slightly-better-than-average song, I'm now really starting to take to the song. Back when Madonna was going through her outrage-a-week phase in early '90s, I wrote a couple of times about how manufactured I thought her Sam Kinison routine on Letterman was. I think it's funny how in 2012, she now delegates her controversies!

clemenza, Monday, 6 February 2012 12:33 (2 years ago) Permalink

She did slip in a little "Open Your Heart"...just a few seconds, though, right?

clemenza, Monday, 6 February 2012 12:34 (2 years ago) Permalink

May as well post this while it's up.

clemenza, Monday, 6 February 2012 12:37 (2 years ago) Permalink

xp yeah reading a transcript in Q mag of that Letterman interview was a bit of an off-the-bus moment for me with Madge until Ray Of Light came out. actually *watching* the clip years later on You Tube i realised that she looked really messed up and miserable and kinda out-of-control.

piscesx, Monday, 6 February 2012 12:44 (2 years ago) Permalink

AM I nuts or did she almost fall back a bit when she was on the bleacher things at one point. I swear I saw it but nobody else I was watching with seemed to.

wolf kabob (ENBB), Monday, 6 February 2012 12:50 (2 years ago) Permalink

"sucked" is too harsh. I didn't care for the dance routines; she looked distracted. Maybe she thought the centurion belt was as fetching as I did.

Exile in lolville (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Monday, 6 February 2012 12:53 (2 years ago) Permalink

I read an account this morning that said she had a misstep at one point, so that must have been it. I missed it, or else I just thought she was, uh, voguing.

clemenza, Monday, 6 February 2012 12:54 (2 years ago) Permalink

Watching it now. New single sounds fantastic. Love Nicki & MIA's expressions when they're crossing pom-poms.

"WORLD PEACE" is a classic banality bomb.

Suede - the fabric, not the band (DL), Monday, 6 February 2012 13:00 (2 years ago) Permalink

OK yeah I just saw a replay on the news - she definitely nearly fell backwards. She did recover quickly tho.

wolf kabob (ENBB), Monday, 6 February 2012 13:04 (2 years ago) Permalink

She's a true professional

da croupier, Monday, 6 February 2012 13:54 (2 years ago) Permalink

And while I'm tempted to ask why she bothers, that Jay Leno and Jerry Seinfeld bother is an even bigger question

da croupier, Monday, 6 February 2012 13:56 (2 years ago) Permalink

that was fun! just watched it. like a prayer 4ever.

yeah i saw it too

pretty pissed that she didn't do "hung up"

J0rdan S., Monday, 6 February 2012 15:24 (2 years ago) Permalink

Huh, that was OK. Superbowl halftime is like the closest we can come as a country to true OTT Euro-style spectacle. I'm sure the crowd and audience alike would have been better entertained by one of those full-on drum, cheer and dance corp LMFAO renditions, though.

Hung Up would have been a better choice than Music.

Josh in Chicago, Monday, 6 February 2012 15:25 (2 years ago) Permalink

that wasn't bad. not life-changing but enjoyable - she looked relaxed, which she hasn't for a while, and that was a strong selection from her back catalogue.

i like "music" better than "hung up", i think. or about the same. both classics!

first period don't give a fuck, second period gon get cut (lex pretend), Monday, 6 February 2012 15:34 (2 years ago) Permalink

I've always thought Music was lame. Don't Tell Me ftw.

Josh in Chicago, Monday, 6 February 2012 15:39 (2 years ago) Permalink

"music" was her last US megahit. "hung up" wasn't really super bowl setslist-level big.

some dude, Monday, 6 February 2012 15:43 (2 years ago) Permalink

"Hung Up" also went platinum and "4 Minutes" went double-platinum according to Wikipedia

I spend a lot of time thinking about apricots (DJP), Monday, 6 February 2012 15:44 (2 years ago) Permalink

yeah but "music" is the closest thing to "vogue"-level universal she's made in the last x years

some dude, Monday, 6 February 2012 15:46 (2 years ago) Permalink

and she wasn't gonna do TWO post-'90s hits in addition to the new single, so "music" it is

some dude, Monday, 6 February 2012 15:46 (2 years ago) Permalink

I have never liked "Music".
