Nice Face Bro.
(Source) I don’t want to linger on this, but last night’s Super Bowl half-time show was ridiculous — and gratuitously so. Watching Twitter, it was really no surprise that men made comments about stripper poles and putting dollar bills through their TV sets, was it? Why can’t we have a national entertainment moment that does not include a mother gyrating in a black teddy? The priceless moment was Destiny’s Child reuniting to ask that someone “put a ring on it.” As I mentioned on Twitter last night, perhaps that case might be best made in another outfit, perhaps without the crotch grabbing.
It seems quite disappointing that Michelle Obama would feel the need to tweet about how “proud” she is of Beyoncé. The woman is talented, has a beautiful voice, and could be a role model. And she is on some levels — on others she is an example of cultural surrender, rather than leadership. When I saw the first lady’s tweet, I couldn’t help but think of the president talking about abortion in terms of his daughters’ freedom. I so want the Obamas to be leaders on building a culture of marriage and fatherhood and human dignity. Their actions seem to be telling me to get over my delusion. We need to raise our standards. Is it crazy to think we can, even at the Super Bowl?
Jesus Christ Kathryn Jean Lopez, lighten the fuck up. I mean how shitty does your life have to be to see a halftime show that everyone in the world found entertaining and immediately think about women’s rights and how disgusting it is? That is patently absurd. And don’t get me wrong, I don’t hate this because its a feminist thing, feminists don’t bother me in any type of unique way, I hate this because its a person who takes life WAY too seriously. A person who is always looking to make every little thing an issue that needs to discussed. No. Fuck that. That halftime show was awesome. Every girl that was at the Super Bowl party I went to thought it was awesome, and I bet 99.9% of the female population liked it as well. Not one person saw Beyonce and thought it was demeaning towards women except Kathryn Jean Lopez. Beyonce is blazing hot. If she wants to show us how hot she is that is her right. Its not cultural surrender. She’s proud of being a Fox. Why not show off something you’re proud of?
So fuck you for making this more than it should be Kathryn. It was entertainment and Beyonce was entertaining. Anyone who sees something different is a sad. pathetic, joyless human being.
