Report: Madonna To Perform At Super Bowl XLVI Halftime Show

To those waiting for some young, hip music act to perform during halftime of the Super Bowl, you’ll have to wait another year.

According to SBNation.com, Madonna will headline the Super Bowl XLVI Halftime Show in Indianapolis on February 5.

The 53-year-old performer continues a long line of established older acts on Super Bowl Sunday. Since the Janet Jackson Super Bowl halftime debacle in 2004, the NFL made a move towards safer (and age advanced acts) choices.

While The Rolling Stones, Prince, and The Who have made their fair share of songs that could make sponsors cringe, the suggestive dancing element creates a potential disaster that they probably don’t want to deal with again. Thus, Madonna’s performance is going to be watered down from previous ventures.

The Madonna choice is interesting because she once published a book titled Sex and starred in the 1993 film Body of Evidence where she plays an erotic asphyxiation lovin’ character that pours hot candle wax on Willem Dafoe during coitus.

I suppose the NFL’s theory on this stuff is to get the musicians when they are at a point in their careers where the audience doesn’t care about their racy pasts any longer.
