She's no longer as big as she once was in terms of popularity and cultural relevance.

That's what I was speaking to.

Neither is Brittany Spears or Jlo or Shakira ya dumb fuck. Rihanna has plenty of hits worthy of a SB halftime show and she wasnt the first choice. Taylor Swift turned it down. Cultural relevance? Rihanna is up there.

Higher than C3P0 though? Consider the source

Me either. They almost never have music artists that I could give a rats ass playing.

And it's not just about cultural relevance on who is chosen. There are always political and audience ramifications involved. If it was just about relevance, we would be seeing guys like Toby Keith, Luke Bryan, and Garth Brooks. I can admit that and I hate country music. But they sell out stadiums like it's the superbowl. Dave Matthews or Radiohead if we want to switch to more rock oriented genre. And Metallica might outsell all of them but ofcourse they would never have a metal act play.

They have to find someone who can make a pop music that will draw in 14 year old girls while simultaneously showing some skin to attract 45 year old virgins that don't know how to look up porn while also making a political statement to attract 45 year old progressive suburban women who are mad at the world because their husbands don't want to fuck their fat ass anymore.

They could do XXX Tentacicion or Lil Uzi Vert and people would lose their minds. BTS or Billie Eliiesh. You're never gonna please the whole world and people tune in to watch the game anyway. I've never been a fan of most halftime shows but I always go into it with a open mind and couldn't care less about what's relevant or if it was good.

Would be interesting, since he died 4 years ago. I hate modern hip-hop (most hip-hop in reality, with the exception of some 90s stuff), but from what little I know of his music, I liked it more than most.

Rhianna>>>>Taylor Swift. Girl got the goods. Arianna can do anything but is caught in the pop formula. Hate to see her not being able to show her versatility. Swift is an OK talent with a great knack at writing pop ditties but a big meh for me.

Ok boomer. Who the fuck listens to any of those red neck assholes outside of rednecks? Metallica and Radiohead would never do it because its basically a 15 min Pepsi advertisement. Lol!

I don't listen to country music either. But there are a lot rednecks like you say. Maybe they can turn off the nascar race to watch the halftime show if they were playing.

She has catchy hits and she's gorgeous as f*ck.

I feel she will go over as good as Katy Perry did a few years back.

If I am not working during the game, that will be a Vaseline appointment time. Since the NFL will never invite Metallica, Guns N Roses, AC/DC, Iron Maiden, Megadeth, Anthrax, Scorpions, or Judas Priest to perform at the Super Bowl Halftime Show, this stroke session will be the next best thing.
Most of those guys are almost dead.

I like Taylor, but unsure her music would go over with the football crowd. Probably why she turned it down.
