I am feeling really old…
Why does someone with this much talent have to be so crude and vulgar in performance? The show was visually stunning but its overt sexually left me feeling stunned in quite a different way… especially Beyonce stripping off part of her already scanty costume and throwing it into the audience, the dance moves, the hand gestures, and the spanking!
The pyrotechnics, obviously safe in this huge area, also left me with horrid thoughts about the night club deaths in Brasil.
I missed the moment when burlesque went mainstream.
Dad always watched the “big games” with my husband and young sons… male bonding over junk food and beer or pop… in the basement rec room. At half time there were marching bands and cheer leading routines.
He would be rolling over in his grave!
