“Madonna is rockin . . . well received here in the stadium,” –WFAN’s Boomer Esiason, via Twitter.
“The only thing Madonna proved during the Super Bowl 46 show is her irrelevance.” –JP Starkey, Dallas’s SB Nation.
The reviews were decidedly mixed on this year’s Super Bowl Halftime show, headlined by FOF Madonna. A bevy of FUF stars popped on and off the stage–including LMFAO, M.I.A, Nicki Minaj, and Cee-Lo– but Madonna was the one dancing (in heeled, thigh-high boots no less) singing, jumping, and pumping up the crowd from start to finish.
Full disclosure: We thought she was fab. Who are these haters?! She sounded great. (Was she lip syncing? Who cares?) She kept the spectacles coming (Roman gladiators! Tight-rope bouncers! 50 cheerleaders! A full choir!) Her body was toned and sexy, but she didn’t feel the need to flash her nipples to make it memorable (are you listening, Janet?). Best of all, she was beaming, and appeared to be having the time of her life.
