Ever since the Justin Timberlake/Janet Jackson "wardrobe malfunction" at Super Bowl XXXVIII, the National Football League has attempted to get acts for their Super Bowl Halftime shows that they think a majority of people would find unoffensive." Last night's featured performer was Madonna, who put on a significantly better show than what I was expecting.
(Remember when Madonna was getting her videos banned from MTV back in the late 80s/early 90s? I guess 20 years does a lot to kill controversy.)
But now, it appears that we're going to have to worry about our halftime shows getting even more "family friendly." By this point, unlike Brian Griffin up there, I'm guessing that everyone has, indeed, heard about the bird.
The NBC censors missed this by a couple of seconds, but I'm guessing that's all that it's going to take in order for things to get toned down even further than they already have been.
With that in mind. . .what suggestions do you folks have for next year's Super Bowl halftime show?
Oh, and not for nothing. . .but apparently Madonna's performance did higher ratings than the actual game itself. Take that news however you'd like.
Madonna is more popular than the NFL. Source says the halftime show drew a 48.3 overnight, which is higher than the game's 47.8.— John Ourand (@Ourand_SBJ) February 6, 2012
