Better than LMFAO and the guy on the tightrope I guess

Potential mixtape title: Man on W.I.R.E.

They should have blurred LMFAO instead

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.

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

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.

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.

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".

i don't like "Music" either, i'm just saying it's ridic to even expect "Hung Up"

some dude, Monday, 6 February 2012 16:14 (2 years ago) Permalink

I think you're underselling how successful "Hung Up" was:

"Hung Up" peaked at number one in charts of 41 countries and earning a 2007 place in the Guinness Book of World Records, as the song topping the charts in most countries.[27] It also remains one of the best-selling singles of all time, with sales of over nine million copies worldwide.[28] In the United States, "Hung Up" debuted at twenty on the Billboard Hot 100 on the issue dated November 5, 2005. It became her highest opening position since "Ray of Light" entered the chart at five in 1998. The same week the song entered the Hot Digital Songs chart at number six and became the highest debuting single of the week on the Pop 100 Airplay, where it debuted at thirty-eight.[29] On the issue dated December 7, 2005, the song entered the top ten of the Billboard Hot 100 at seven, which became its peak, jumping from position fourteen of the previous week. The song became the chart's greatest digital gainer for that week and claimed the top position on the Hot Digital Songs chart.[30] It also tied Madonna with Elvis Presley for thirty-six top ten hits,[31] which was subsequently broken by Madonna's 2008 song "4 Minutes", which peaked at three on the Hot 100. "Hung Up" debuted at numbers twenty-five and ten on the Hot Dance Club Play and Hot Dance Airplay charts respectively ultimately reaching the top of both charts.[32][33][34] It became the most successful dance song of the 2000s in the United States, by topping the Dance/Club Play Songs Decade-end chart.[35] The song also reached a peak of seven on the Pop 100 chart.[32] On August 18, 2008, the single was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America for selling at least a million copies in paid digital downloads.[36] As of April 2010, the song has sold 1.2 million digital units in the United States.[37]

although I would have really lolled if she's done "4 Minutes":

In the United States, "4 Minutes" debuted at number sixty-eight on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for the issue dated April 5, 2008, based solely on airplay.[21] Within a week, the song had jumped sixty-five places, reaching number three on the chart. This leap was spurred by first-week digital sales of 217,000, enabling the song to enter Billboard's Digital chart at number two, behind Mariah Carey's single "Touch My Body". The song became Madonna's first top-ten single since "Hung Up" (2005), and was her thirty-seventh Hot 100 top-ten hit, breaking the record previously held by Elvis Presley.[22] "4 Minutes" was also her highest-charting single on the Hot 100 since "Music" reached the top of the chart in 2000. For Timberlake, "4 Minutes" became his ninth top-ten hit.[23] On the Pop 100 chart, the song reached a peak of two.[24] "4 Minutes" was a success on Billboard's dance charts, topping both the Hot Dance Club Play and the Hot Dance Airplay charts.[25][26] Four months after its release, "4 Minutes" was certified double platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for sales of two million paid digital downloads. It is her second single to achieve multi-platinum certification, after "Vogue" (1990), and it is one of her best-selling songs in the United States.[27] As of September 2010, it had sold 2.8 million digital downloads in the United States.[28] "4 Minutes" was the tenth most downloaded song in the United States in 2008, according to Nielsen SoundScan.[29] In Canada, Nielsen Broadcast Data Systems (BDS) confirmed that "4 Minutes" debuted at the top of the Canadian Contemporary Hit Radio chart. This marked the first time any song entered at the top of the CHR chart in BDS history.[30] The song debuted at number twenty-seven on the Canadian Hot 100 on March 27, 2008,[31] and topped the chart the next week.[32] The song spent nine non-consecutive weeks at the top of the chart.[33]

i know it was successful, i'm saying "Music" was more successful, especially in the U.S.

some dude, Monday, 6 February 2012 16:17 (2 years ago) Permalink

well thank god she didn't play "4 minutes"

J0rdan S., Monday, 6 February 2012 16:17 (2 years ago) Permalink

if a superstar with a deep catalog is playing a high profile event for like 15 minutes, you can bet 'the biggest song from two or three albums ago' is not on the agenda

People complaining about the medley aspect obviously haven't watched a Super Bowl halftime show in the past decade.

I thought she looked pretty good and was having fun.

this was pretty fun and ridiculous and p much exactly what you'd expect from a super bowl halftime show
