Madonna to Headline the Super Bowl Halftime Show

You know the saying “Go big or go home?” That’s the sort of logic that teams tend to use while playing in the Super Bowl, the NFL championship game.

And now, it appears that’s the logic behind the choice of performer for the Super Bowl halftime show. Because it really doesn’t get any bigger than THE pop-diva herself.

That’s right, Madonna will be taking center stage during the halftime show.

This seems to indicate that they’re done with the “safe” halftime shows that came in the wake of the 2004 show featuring Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake, with a special guest appearance by Janet Jackson’s nipple. In the following years we saw acts like Paul McCartney, the Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen and Prince, but there was a decided move away from more contemporary pop acts…and from anyone with breasts. This changed last year when The Black-Eyed Peas performed with special guests Usher and Slash of Guns and Roses. Fergie’s nipples did NOT make an appearance.

However, this also brings up an interesting question: do you think Madonna’s going to bring some friends along for the ride? If so, who? Guess we’ll have to wait until February 4th to find out.
