Ladies (and gents) let's get in formation and talk about how Bey slayed the halftime performance as Coldplay's "special guest". HA! As if Ms. Carter would ever just stand to the side and let someone else shine. It took a green smoothie and some fried potatoes to cure my Beyoncé hangover.
Beyoncé was on fire all weekend long with the release of a new single and music video (Formation), SuperBowl halftime performance, and a world tour announcement. She made a clear statement about black rights, Hurricane Katrina and police brutality. Some are loving it, others not so much. But haters are going to hate.
My favourite moment would have to be when Bruno Mars and Bey had a dance-off. (She missed a step but recovered like the flawless queen that she is.)
A lot of people are complaining about how she took over and made it the Beyoncé show. All I'm thinking about is how the hell I'm going to get enough money to go see her in concert when she comes to Toronto in May. I mean, come on. Are you really that surprised that she was the highlight of the night? Coldplay didn't suck and Bruno Mars was pretty good (paid a nice tribute to Janet Jackson who has reportedly been banned from the SuperBowl for life since her nipple was exposed during the halftime show back in 2004). If it was just Coldplay performing, I doubt there'd be as much buzz. So kudos to all three performers for putting on a show for the books.
Now, who wants to contribute to my Beyoncé concert funds? I kid.
What did you think? Did you watch? Do you think the performance is overrated? Comment your thoughts below or tweet me @MissSaverinaS!
