First Lady Michelle Obama watched every tackle and fumble of this year´s Super Bowl along with the rest of the country, but it was Beyonce´s incendiary performance that she singled out for praise. ´Watching the Super Bowl with family and friends,´ Obama wrote on her Twitter feed. ´Beyonce was phenomenal! I am so proud of her!´ Launching the show with a strong performance of ´Crazy in Love´ complete with a guitar flaming as it played out its solo, Beyonce proved her doubters wrong by singing live one week after the controversy over her lip-synching at the Presidential Inauguration.
Comments: She´s so proud of Beyonce? Why? Is she her secret mother? Her voice coach? Her rip-off-your-clothes expert? Just what is Michelle taking credit for?
These people have to stick their nose in everything even if their comments are totally misplaced.They also want you to know they´re still knee deep in celebrity worship to stay in touch with the low info crowd.
She was basically a Michele Jackson with breasts! Where was the originality? The music was simple; she kept repeating the same words over and over again for the most part! And, she was lip syncing at times with her last song. I also think that her show put so much strain on the electrical system that her show is the reason that there was a black out in the second half.
I read somewhere that she had her mic turned up, when the Ladies from destinyschild and theirs down? Class act,beyonc. Such a role model for your girls, Michelle, tush/gyrating hips/skimpy outfits...real class.
Michelle Obama watched with family and friends - as Beyonce stripped down to a negligee, gyrated like a poll dancer, had crouch busting movement (watch close ups if you dare), screamed to top of her lungs, slung hair back and forth. AND MICHELLE WAS PROUD.
Could someone please point out to me what exactly has Moochelle Obama done on her own in her life, I mean besides voluntarily surrendering her law license to avoid disbarment, or working at a basically no show job at a hospital after her fake husband was elected to public office, that makes her an authority figure whose stamp of public approval of a shimmying, shaking, scantily clad mediocre singer is necessary? Beyonce was about as interesting as watching clothes drying. It was awful garbage designed to appeal to the lowest instincts of our celebrity rotten culture.
After a few minutes, I went and took my meds. Did not need to watch a gentlemens club act. I wondered where the dance pole was as Beyoncy started humping the microphone. Not a good act to show the kids that were watching the big game. What a bunch of trash.
Beyonce was beyond tasteless. Vulgar, promiscuous and blatantly flaunting uninhibited sexuality. We thought that her performance would be followed by a PSA from Kathleen Sebelius on how ObamaCare now provides free condoms and abortifacients to sexually active people of all sexual preferences.
It´s funny how the media narrative is that Beyonce was great but if you read the message boards of the internet-based media, the comments about her by ordinary posters are largely negative. This includes the liberal internet news sites.
What you have is a case of the media manufacturing a narrative which then gets repeated along the chain of media outlets. You only need one or two writers to have formed the narrative but it gets amplified along the chain so that is appears as if everybody is thinking along the same lines.
Sick and tired of all these million-dollar payday "acts" getting praise for what I thought was their craft. Geez, Michelle, what are you proud of - the fact that she actually SANG?! That is even suspect. How exactly would it be easier to sing live when you are gyrating all over the stage as opposed to standing still at the inauguration. I think she lip-synched again last night. Truly don´t care about this woman or any of her ghetto connections in the WH.
Same thing with these sports players - they make a touchdown and they act like they cured cancer. Then you have the players, making millions, who can´t catch a pass to save their life. As long as we fill the diversity quotas, I guess that´s OK.
It was a boring show. We´ve seen the same bump and grind routine hundreds of times, the music was repetitive dance club noise. We´ve seen the same light show, the same backup singers, the same strutting, the same yelling audience. I think it´s more interesting to watch the stage being taken off the field after the show. MO´s idiotic tweet is just a cherry on top of the idiocy.

Not until midnight was the fact that the NO stadium lost its juice became a known fact. We knew something was amiss, just wasn´t certain what it was. Half time and ground hog day all over again. Only in bizarro world, a third world banana republic indeed.
There was one lovely moment at halftime - one that many of us were concerned about for a number of reasons.
The choir of children from Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, sang "America the Beautiful" in their clear, lovely voices. Pure. Then Jennifer Hudson joined them as soloist for a repeat of the first verse. And for most of her solo, the camera remained on the children.
Jennifer Hudson showed so much more class than Beyonce, appearing in a straight white calf-length skirt and black blouse, her hair pulled back. Simple elegance. Her voice is magnificent. She can sing rings around Beyonce.
...what´s not to be proud of? As FLOTUS and mother of 2 young girls, watching Beyonce´ gyrating, grinding, crotch rubbing in a skin tight outfit while booming along with a cacophonic score and flaming guitars is the stuff of magic...of legend....something to savor forever...to remembered as well as we do the craft that goes into ´Bella figlia del amore..."
The deaths of two French soldiers in the Central African Republic (CAR) have reminded the world of the deadly seriousness of France’s latest foreign foray to confront Islamists in their former colonies. Hundreds of troops are still in Mali, where they have helped force insurgents out of their northern city strongholds and into the desert. [Snip] While Britain and America continue their disengagement from overseas incursions in Afghanistan and Iraq, it has fallen to the French to take up the challenge posed by the spread of militant Islam in Africa. Long the region’s self-styled policeman, France has experience restoring regimes
Canada Post will phase out home delivery in urban areas over the next five years as the postal service struggles to rein in persistent losses. Under a five-year plan released on Wednesday, the cost of stamps will also rise and as many as 8,000 jobs will be eliminated. But the agency says it will also open more retail locations across Canada. The service faces a projected 1bn Canadian dollar ($943m; £576m) loss by 2020 without "fundamental changes". Canada Post lost C$73m in the third quarter of the current fiscal year, CBC News reported.
The National Security Agency has been accused of using Google cookies to pinpoint targets the government wants to hack. In a NSA presentation slide released by Edward Snowden and seen by the Washington Post, the agency appeared to be using internet tracking techniques usually used by advertisers. While the Pref Cookies reportedly being used don´t reveal personal information, they can uniquely identify a person´s browser. The NSA and GCHQ in the UK have been using the tracking files to identify potential targets who are using the internet, according to the documents. As well as listing visits to websites, the cookies
The US and Britain have suspended all non-lethal assistance in to northern Syria after forces from the new Islamic Front seized headquarters and warehouses belonging to the opposition’s Supreme Military Council. Fighters from the Front, a union of six major rebel groups, took control of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) bases at the Bab al-Hawa crossing on Syria’s northwestern border with Turkey late on Friday. Turkey shut its side of the border crossing, in Hatay province, due to a reported increase in clashes on the Syrian side, customs sources told the Reuters news agency. There was no immediate confirmation from
There’s a YouTube clip I can’t stop watching called “Margaret Thatcher don’t want to jump”. The then Prime Minister has just reached the end of a TV interview, and the presenter is asking her to “make a little jump”. “Why?” It’s “just a gimmick” that all her guests do. Thatcher raises an eyebrow. “I bet that you wouldn’t do it,” says the presenter, becoming at the same time conciliatory, wheedling, insistent. “Just a little jump.” Come on. “Gorbachev did it.” “But what”, inquires the Iron Lady icily, “is the point of it?” “It just shows another side
NHS patients will benefit from a new brain scan that can help doctors confirm or rule out a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease. David Cameron will announce tomorrow that Britain will be the first place in the world where the revolutionary technique will be available for free. The test will mean that, for the first time, doctors will be able to definitively rule out Alzheimer’s in some patients for five years. Currently, one in five cases of the disease is misdiagnosed. It could also help doctors to confirm an existing diagnosis of Alzheimer’s, ensuring people get the treatment they need.
Barack Obama is facing poll numbers that are now in the same territory as President George W. Bush´s following Hurricane Katrina. The Quinnipiac University Polling Institute released numbers on Tuesday showing that just 38 percent of registered voters approve of the job Obama is doing as president, with a whopping 56 percent saying they disapprove. The president has lost his landslide electoral edge among young voters, too, with a negative 41–49 percent rating among 18- to 29-year-old voters. His once formidable support among Hispanics has also evaporated: They now support him by an historically small 50–43 percent margin.
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
US President Barack Obama may have moved the masses attending Nelson Mandela’s memorial service with his stirring eulogy, but it was his grinning "selfie" with the Danish and British premiers that set social networks abuzz. In a candid moment captured by a photographer, Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt can be seen holding up her smartphone, with Obama lending a helping hand, as they pose for a picture with David Cameron, all three of them smiling broadly in their seats at Soweto’s World Cup stadium.(Snip)Mashable, the news and technology website, ran the photograph under the headline: ‘‘Dear Obama: Funerals are no place
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.
