Despite the sad, sad game, the halftime performance was pretty amazing. As expected, Beyoncé danced her ass off & Bruno Mars did a great job singing.
Yoncé’s outfit was much better this year also. She was paying homage to her idol Michael Jackson with bullets across her leather jacket.
She was also color coordinated with Bruno Mars, which looked amazing during their dance-off.
Beyoncé also announced the “Formation World Tour” which will be in The A on May 1st. (If you complete the music survey on this website, you enter a contest for a chance to win tickets.)
Of course with all of this Beyonce talk, she obviously released a new song this past Saturday called “formation” and she alludes to some heavy political issues in the video. She’s on a new orleans cop car in the middle of a flooded street, which symbolizes Hurricane Katrina. She also has some officers with their hands up and “Stop showing us” is spray painted on a brick wall…
After her performance of the song, members of the National Sheriff’s Association didn’t like the performance because it “was anti-police.” The association was having a meeting in a hotel and they turned off the TV during her performance. That’s some pretty serious dissatisfaction.
Raven-Symone also had something to say on The View. She said, “The new Beyonce is hilarious and amazing but I miss beyonce singing ballads in a dress.” She was essentially mocking her.
There’s somebody else who wasn’t feeling her performance: former mayor of New York, Rudy Giuliani, said on fox news, “I think it was outrageous.The halftime show I thought was ridiculous anyway. I don’t know what the heck it was. A bunch of people bouncing around and all strange things. It was terrible.”
He continued, “This is football, not Hollywood, and I thought it was really outrageous that she used it as a platform to attack police officers who are the people who protect her and protect us, and keep us alive,” he said. “And what we should be doing in the African-American community, and all communities, is build up respect for police officers. And focus on the fact that when something does go wrong, okay. We’ll work on that. But the vast majority of police officers risk their lives to keep us safe.” Ummm okay…
There is no room for hate in the BeyHive. She slays on! Mrs. Carter also has new merch to match her song lyrics… Check it out!
