Beyonce’s Super Bowl Halftime Show Was… Significantly Better Than Madonna’s Last Year

Super Bowl XLVII Halftime Show

We are (not proudly) part of the tiny segment of the population that doesn’t think Beyonce is the greatest performer* in the world. So, just to set expectations, there’s that.

Beyonce performed at last night’s Super Bowl Pepsi Jeep Calvin Klein Go Daddy Scientology.org Halftime Show and all social media platforms shut down in unison because everyone loves Beyonce and anyone who doesn’t is a birther/maybe racist.

The performance involved lots of fire–coming out of the stage, out of the front of a guitar, out of the back of a guitar–sweating, and attitude, on a stage flanked by two truly, impressively heinous profile portraits (?) of Beyonce (?). If you love occasional singing along to a pre-recorded backing track and medleys, then you probably loved it.

Also, because it wouldn’t be a halftime show without a big dumb gimmick, Beyonce was joined by her once-spurned Destiny’s Child bandmates, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams… who actually zoomed onto stage straight from the netherworld of irrelevance to which Beyonce had banished them. LaTavia Roberson, LeToya Luckett, Farrah Franklin, Támar Davis, Nikki Taylor, and Nina Taylor remain trapped and air is running out.

Anyway, since everyone loves Beyonce, we’re not going to write something troll-y about how overrated she is. Instead, we’re going to frame this shit very simply, and not too offensively…

Wasn't Beyonce's Halftime show way better than Madonna's?

There. There is your poll and we never have to talk about Beyonce or Halftime shows or special guests again.

We can definitely talk about that Scientology commercial, though. Hoo boy.

*No one is challenging her hotness, however. That’s crazy.

    Thank you! I believe Beyonce is overrated and nothing proved it more than the Super Bowl. She cannot dance and she can..sorta sing. Alicia Keys, though not thoroughly a fan, CAN sing, J Hud CAN sing, Beyonce just cannot. I was so embarrassed that in a bar full of adults everyone lost their shit over this performance. I seriously could not hear a thing cuz everyone was going crazy! It just made me drink more….but my girlfriend amused me by drunkenly saying Beyonce is sorta dwindling from hot Tyra to very exaggerated and annoying Tyra.
