Weird Al Yankovic deserved this opportunity for years. He should have performed a Superbowl Halftime years ago but he never got the opportunity. Could he perform the next Superbowl??? There’s a petition going by Weird Al fans begging the NFL to hire Weird Al and his band to perform the next Halftime show. Could Weird Al get the gig? I would LOVE for him to get it but since this is NFL, it maybe a tough gig for him to get. I’m pretty sure the NFL already have a bunch of artists lined up for the next Half Time show.
I know Weird Al can put on a great performance ’cause I’ve seen him live once. Him and his band are great musicians. They’ll put on a fun show for the Superbowl. For the Superbowl performance, I can see Weird Al doing some kind of medley mix. A mix of new parodies and old ones. Maybe a few originals as well.
I have a feeling they won’t get Weird Al. Instead they’ll probably end up getting Kanye West, Justin Bieber or Robin Thicke.
I do hope and pray that Weird Al gets the gig, though. This would be great for him. It WOULD help the Superbowl ratings so the NFL should think about that.
Conservatives and right wingers are pissed at this commercial. The controversial Coca-cola commercial where “America The Beautiful” is sung in different languages.
Why are they pissed? Well, they make claims that this commercial promotes illegal immigration and a diversed America or something like that?
Well, even though I am conservative and my thoughts on this are gonna be a liberal stance, I’m gonna be flat-out honest that I think the commercial was amazing and just beautiful. It was the best Superbowl commercial and I’m not lying either. In the commercial’s defense, I think it wants to send a message that people from other countries are welcome in the USA. We are not alone. The commercial wants to let us Americans know that foreign people are living in the USA too. That’s the message I think it’s trying to send.
I don’t see anything wrong with a patriotic song being sung in different languages either. Patriotic songs have been sung in different languages before, it’s nothing new. I’m pretty positive that the “Star Spangled Banner” has been done in different languages, look it up.
I think the commercial wants to promote that people from other countries can be Americans too. There’s nothing racist about this commercial at all.
With all this being said, I think the commercial is great. The best thing that the Superbowl did, and the commercial is serious.
LOL, I just finished watching the new O’ Reilly vs. Obama interview for the first time… and it was entertaining as hell.
When O’ Reilly first brings up Benghazi, watch Obama closely as he slowly nods his head up and down. You can also see Obama’s eyes blinking as O’ Reilly speaks. You can immediately notice that Obama is getting nervous when O’ Reilly is trying to get onto him about Benghazi. Of course, Obama lies even more and dodges his questions. You can see it in Obama’s eyes that he knows a lot about Benghazi than anybody.
What’s with Obama not wearing a proper suit? Where is his tie? How un-American is that? Usually a President would look like a President during the major interviews…
Bill did a great job, though. Bill got tough on Obama and made him look like a baby.
Obama will never take responsibility for his actions. First he blames everything on Bush, now he’s blaming everything on FOX News. IDIOT!
So, “#Investigate911” is a trending topic on twitter. Yes, they were referring to the 9/11/01 WTC attacks, of course. I was trying to figure out why this became a trending topic all of a sudden and I think I just figured it out… some guy interrupted a Superbowl press conference and says that, “9/11 should be investigated and was perpetrated by our own government”.
Well, for many years, people have blamed the 9/11/01 attacks on President Bush and our US Government. The US government during the Bush Administration blamed it on Osama Bin Laden but I don’t think Bin Laden was involved. There was no proof that Bin Laden was involved and they didn’t even put him on trial. Ever noticed there was no full on congressional investigation on 9/11/01 just like there was no investigation on the Benghazi attacks 9/11/2012???
The Obama administration claimed they went out and killed Bin Laden with no proof of that either so this gets me thinking that Obama could be helping to protect George W. Bush over 9/11/01 ’cause everybody knows that Obama and Bush have a strong relationship together.
Was 9/11/01 an inside job by our US government?
I agree 9/11/01 should be investigated and the same goes for Benghazi – 9/11/2012. They both need a full scale investigation.
It’s nice to finally see the American people waking up on 9/11/01 that the terrorists attacks wasn’t exactly committed by Bin Laden but it was actually done by George W. Bush himself.
Why are all these child abuse organizations saying that Pete Townshend is a registered sex offender but they don’t have proof? It’s because they have none.
Another website claiming Pete is registered, but these child abuse websites fail to show Pete’s actual sex offender registry to prove it?
If you’re going to accuse someone of being a registered sex offender, you must prove it. Where is Pete’s actual registry? That hasn’t been seen online yet.
Sorry, but the NFL is not going to take the Who off the Superbowl Halftime. Kudos to the NFL for not listening to these assholes. I for one, am looking forward to the Who’s performance as they have been my favorite band for many years and they still rock. I’m sure the Who will put on an incredible performance.
As predicted, Child Abuse organizations are desperately trying to get the Who off the Superbowl halftime gig. The Who were officially booked to play this year’s Superbowl halftime. As some may know, Pete Townshend was in trouble years back by looking up child pornography online as for research from his own child abuse experience as a child for an autobiography he was writing. He admitted to doing it but he was cleared of the charges after knowing it was just research.
What do you think? Do you think the Who should be able to play the Superbowl?
I vote yes.
I think Pete is innocent and of course, some others will always think he’s guilty no matter the situation. Pete was cleared of the charges, let the man move on already, you jealous bastards!
Look like Springsteen and the E Street Band will be playing their greatest hits at the Superbowl halftime after all. Springsteen revealed that he promises a good time for the audience at the game. Him and the band only get to play a 12 minute set, which will only fit about 3 or 4 songs. Of course, Springsteen refuses to say what songs him and the band will perform, he wants them to be a surprise.
See the article here:
I’m betting your money that he will definitely play a few songs off “Born In the U.S.A.”, he’ll play the title track, “Glory Days” and maybe “Dancing In the Dark” too.
Rumours swirling the web, that Springsteen may pull up Courtney Cox from the Superbowl audience for him to dance with during “Dancing in the Dark”. Could this actually happen? Courtney Cox from “Friends” TV show will be at the Superbowl to dance with the boss on stage? We’ll have to wait and find out!
On a side note, Max Weinberg and Labamba Rosenberg will be performing in the band as well, as they are taking time off from the Conan O’ Brien show to rehearse for the Superbowl gig with Springsteen. Weinberg has been a member of the E Street band for many years.
I’m looking forward to the Superbowl this Sunday. I’m no NFL fan but I do watch the Superbowl every year. I’m also looking forward to seeing how Jennifer Hudson is going to sing the “National Anthem”, that’ll be interesting to see too.
