Madonna To Play In Superbowl, Quite Possibly As A Wide Receiver
MADONNA’S appearance at the next Super Bowl has been one of the worst kept secrets in sports-entertainment. Just like [Whoa there Mr Libel! Name removed by Ed.] being a quite obvious closeted homosexual. Even their wife knows it fercryinoutloud!
Anyway, it has finally been confirmed that Her Madge will be doing the halftime show at Super Bowl XLVI on February 5th. The gig has been rumoured for some time now and it’s clear that the NFL and associated TV stations want to get someone properly famous with a decent back-catalogue on the show after last year’s awful Black Eyed Peas debacle.
And all the stops are being pulled out to say sorry, we won’t book a faddy pop band again as Madonna’s extravaganza will be “imagined” by Cirque du Soleil and her longtime choreographer/creative director Jamie King.
Before the Black Eyed Peas, the Super Bowl halftime show has seen Bruce Springsteen, the Rolling Stones, The Who, Tom Petty, U2, Paul McCartney and Prince. It’s obvious that they needed to get someone huge on this time.
Hopefully, Madonna will be keeping it a strictly Greatest Hits show only because, on the strength of the tunes leaked from her forthcoming LP, we really don’t want her saying those dreadful words “…and here’s one from the new album.”
