Above and Beyoncé
I'm not an American football fan, so I didn't watch the Superbowl last night. (Actually, the fact that I don't get any channels that were showing it was another factor in my decision.) But after reading this article I thought I really should watch Beyoncé’s half-time show at least.
I wasn't disappointed. Certainly her routine was about sex as well as power, but it was very definitely about power: and not Girl Power but Woman Power. OK, the review was a bit over the top, but not much: I thought it was the best half-time show since the 1994 Eurovision Song Contest in Dublin. That one launched Michael Flatley and Riverdance onto an unsuspecting world.
Here's a link to Beyoncé’s show.
And here's a link to the birth of Riverdance.
I think Beyoncé can hold her head (and other parts) high even in that distinguished company.
