WARNING: The following video contains graphic footage and language that some readers will find offensive.called the show an “epic fail.” “Rihanna gave, without question, the single worst Halftime Show in Super Bowl history — This after insulting far more than half of our Nation, which is already in serious DECLINE, with her foul and insulting language,” he wrote. “Also, so much for her ‘Stylist!'” Another non-fan was Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid — who, despite not having seen the show, must have had some kind of premonition and told his players that if any of them were caught taking in the halftime spectacular, they might as well pack their bags and head on home. “Coach Reid told us, he said, ‘If you go out to watch the performance, just keep walking, because you’re not playing the rest of the game,’” said Patrick Mahomes, Chiefs quarterback and Super Bowl MVP, during an appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” Cincinnati Bengals caused a stir by catching the Dr. Dre-helmed halftime theatrics. Rihanna’s halftime show was the second-most watched in history, according to Fortune, with over 118 million viewers. Only Katy Perry’s 2015 halftime show drew more, with 121 million viewers. However, that could also be chalked up to the fact that the 2015 game between the New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks was the most-watched Super Bowl (and television show) in history, according to Fortune; this year’s Super Bowl ranked third all-time, which could also explain the juiced numbers for Rihanna’s smut-fest. (The second-most-watched Super Bowl of all time, 2014’s match between the Seahawks and Peyton Manning’s Denver Broncos, was a blowout that was essentially over by the end of the first quarter, which might explain why Bruno Mars’ halftime show didn’t draw the same numbers.) And cheer up: Not only did all those eyes catch the R-rated moments Rihanna worked into this year’s show, they also caught her criminally poor lip-syncing of already-terrible songs: NFL trots out an artist or artists who aren’t young or hip enough to qualify as relevant, but aren’t so old that even senior citizens are asking themselves: “Wait, they’re still around?” They’re given 20 minutes in front of a massive audience to rejuvenate their career(s). They can either 1) give the performance of their lifetime and remind us all why we liked them in the first place, or 2) gin up some kind of controversy, usually involving lewdness and/or vulgarity. Guess which route is easier? And guess what that says about the musical chops of the “frickin’ horrible” legacy acts who go that route? This article appeared originally on The Western Journal.
