    I honestly think it was a pretty good performance, way better than the garbage that was Maroon 5 last year.

    And you can’t comment on their clothing (they were covered up) when NFL cheerleaders wear way less at every single game.

    Well it's 4 days later, I'm going to assume everyone has moved onto something new to be outraged about.

    Didn't know tons about Shakira, but her ancestry IS interesting. Grandparents who are Lebanese who moved to NYC where her father was born. Mother of Spanish and Italian ancestry. She was born in and clearly identifies with Columbia and didn't learn English until her 20s.

    Liked her better than JLo and can't believe she's 43.

    Thumbs up.

    I have had some time to think it over. As one wag called it: The Ass Time Show.

    The Super Bowl week is the highest incidence of human (most all young girls) trafficking in the USA. So what does the NFL etc do? They have very young girls (10-13 yr old) on stage near the end of a show promoting sexual behavior. Yeah yeah, call be a prude, but if you ever had knock out young daughters you have probably had to tell a man or two to quit staring.

    Where was the Me2Movement? Hollywood? They are silent when one or two of their own are doing it.

    The snake dance (rope was snake), the sign of Cross with the woman, along with all the rest was akin to Santeria worship as well as Satanic worship. Yeah yeah, call it "cultural" all you want, but let's do the Aztec cultural thing next year....you know the cutting out of the heart and eating it.

    Little by little in an effort to accept any and all cultures and mores, assuming that all cultures are morally equivalent, we end up with this Asstime show.

    Next year, they should have an orgy with all kinds of perversions!!!!

    You don't need to be called a prude. "Wacko" is more fitting. Satanic worship? Are you on drugs?

    And what does this have to do with metoo? These are two career entertainers who agreed to do a performance and were paid, like any entertainer.

    No one gets paid to perform at halftime. They do it for free to to get the “exposure “
    NFL was actually going to charge entertainers to perform.

    Hell that's even more impressive. That's a crapload of work and stress preparing, practicing for and executing that kind of performance.

    This post is awesome! I started reading it and was in full agreement - where was the women’s empowerment and the rejection of objectification? I was nodding my head agreeing.

    then you veered into ripping out hearts, satanic worship and the cultural superiority (you do realize America’s greatest strength is being a melting pot that welcomes people from all over the world, right). Veered badly. “Damn fureigners shaking their asses in my halftime show. I want good American girls in Dallas cowboy cheerleader outfits shaking their asses on my TV!“

    Half middle eastern girls tend to turn out extremely attractive. Shakira, Salma Hayek, Gigi and Bella Hadid, Yasmeen Bleeth, and Shannon Elizabeth.

    This was specifically geared towards the Latin market in South Florida... and maybe Latin America wasn’t founded by a bunch of prudes?

    You didn’t add Mj and McCartney.

    THAT last POS was the worst ever. I am amazed at the amount that liked it. First of all, why? Second why?




    As mentioned, Prince and Aerosmith take it.

    I thought it was a very educational performance. Like for example I learned we have a ton of old uptight dudes on this board.
    Are you really equating the #metoo movement, which is about sexual assault and harassment, to women who choose to dress and perform in a certain way? Don’t you get that’s exactly part or the problem? That you feel those are related?

    So what exactly are you teaching your knock out daughters? That if they dress or dance a certain way, they are asking to be harassed or assaulted?

    Teaching girls that they are objects only leads to them being ok when treated like objects...so yes, this type of stuff is part of the problem.

    Sounds like many on here would prefer:

    Songs that made the hit parade,
    Guys like us we had it made,
    Those were the days,
    And you know where you were then,
    Girls were girls and men were men,
    Mister we could use a man like Herbert Hoover again,

    Funny how many people believe they should be the target audience (despite the fact that they were the target audience 20 years ago). Target demographic is 20-45. Now “get off my lawn.”
