Jabroni of the Week: Super Bowl XLVI

Ever since the infamous Janet Jackson “wardrobe malfunction” during the halftime show of Super Bowl XXXVIII, the performers have been mainly limited to aging rockers without nipple shields. Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen, the Rolling Stones. Last year, the Black Eyed Peas were a welcome return to a show with songs that you could hear on the radio and not just a classic rock station.

You’d think the trend might continue and then Madonna was named as this year’s halftime show performer. I didn’t realize she was still alive. Does the NFL realize that the Super Bowl is a football game and not a drag queen convention? I’m all for having somebody that will expand the current audience of NFL fans, but I would say that at least 98% of football fans not only don’t care about Madonna but actively dislike her. And remember Janet Jackson’s boob a few years ago? Madonna is one of the most provocative pop stars of all-time. If you’re looking for somebody that might do something like that or even worse, it’s Madonna. Or Lady Gaga.

Super Bowl XLVI, baby, I know that you’re all about the football, but you’ve gotta remember the halftime show. You’re going to be one the best memories for one fan base. I still remember pacing around my apartment as Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers played I Won’t Back Down at Super Bowl XLII. Every time I hear that song, I smile. You can’t stick a fan with Vogue. Unless he’s a Cowboys fan.

There are plenty of talented, young artists out there today, and thinking back there really hasn’t been a big hip hop act play the Super Bowl. Can we make a call to Drake or Flo Rida or Eminem or Jay-Z or Kanye? Anybody but Madonna. If the game isn’t close, you better believe a lot of people are going to be checking to see what else is on. Dump the old bitch. Until then, you’re a jabroni, brother.
