Avoiding bad halftime shows

YESTERDAY I AVOIDED watching the Super Bowl halftime show. I don't know who the "singer" is and I had no interest in watching Kaorake. So I walked the dogs and put away my laundry.

I think the halftime singer is the second one from the right.
A couple of times I wandered by the TV because Sheryl was watching it (she was bemused and horrified the whole time). Sheryl had some interesting comments, like "I think Lenny Kravitz is using her as his sex slave" and "I'm not sure who these girls with the hats are but they seem to be dancing around a lot."

If you like the singer and what she does, good for you. You are probably 12 and impressionable, but there is nothing wrong with that. I just don't go for the costume changes and auto tune, that's all.

A few years back The Who tore it up at halftime and I loved it. Many people complained that it was rough and raw and "didn't sound like the record," and that's exactly the point and why I love them. If you don't, no problem.

I was also watched the second half on my laptop since Downtown Abbey was on, and the Sky broadcast was really good - no dumb commercials and some interesting analysis during the breaks. And the game was really good, in case you didn't know, which most people don't since they were talking about sharks and Teletubbies and singers swinging from the sky.

New England won, by the way.

Next year, I'm holding out for Weird Al at halftime. Then I will watch.
