Instead of a wardrobe malfunction, this year's Super Bowl halftime show had a talent malfunction. The Rolling Stones put on a "ragged" and "mediocre" show. Their first song, "Start Me Up," needed a little starting up, the obligatory new single "Rough Justice" was boring and the classic "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" was lacking.
ABC actually had to edit the performance to silence potentially offensive sexual language, but nobody bothered to censor the incredibly offensive swagger of 62-year-old Mick Jagger. The guy needs a walker.
It left me yearning for some genre-bending crap-medley from the likes of Eminem, Ashlee Simpson, Metallica and the Dixie Chicks. At least then there's the threat of a full-on fight instead of a full-on heart attack.
