Surprise surprise, I’m not exactly all atwitter at the prospect of football season. Rugby is far more my style if I have to watch sports. I mean if you’re going to gather a gaggle of beefy boys on a field, please put them in short shorts, n’est ce pas? But, it seems that Katy Perry, Rihanna and Coldplay feel differently–all three are in talks to play the Super Bowl Halftime show in February!
My vote is for Katy Perry. No, she cannot sing live and yes Rihanna definitely can, but have you seen a RiRi show? She spends the entire time lip synching and patting her crotch and looking like she’s just dying to be somewhere else. No costume changes. No dance moves. Total boredom from both her and the audience. K.Per may desperately need a backing track but at least she’ll bring some lively energy.
And I’m not sure what dullard normcore old person nominated Coldplay but please go back to your Prius and book club, thank you. I can’t think of anything less entertaining than Chris Martin’s squeaky vocals. Why, if he hadn’t just uncoupled from Gwyneth Paltrow, I doubt he and his band would still be on anyone’s mind.
But here’s an interesting caveat–apparently whichever artist is chosen must pay the NFL a portion out of their tour profits because the halftime show is just such an incredible publicity opportunity! I’ve never heard of something so ridiculous. Does the league actually think that Katy, Chris and RiRi need more publicity?
So let’s take a vote minions: which artist would you like to see rocking the Super Bowl halftime show this winter?
