I will admit when I heard Bruno Mars was going to be performing the half time show at the Super Bowl, I was skeptical. I grew even more skeptical when I heard that The Red Hot Chili Peppers would be making an appearance as well. Much to my surprise Bruno performed wonderfully. He put on a show that was filled with happy, bouncy pop with an air of the old school. I am not into Mars, my heart still belongs to music played with guitar and under-produced on purpose.
Then some old people took the stage and forgot their shirts. This is a real issue! The old men escaped the home and forgot their shirts...they'll catch the death!
I am a fan of The Red Hot Chili Peppers, well I am a fan of them before the turn of the millennium. The funniest thing about the performance is they still have something that they want to put in you. I was anxious to see if they would bring the room down with Under the Bridge or try to rally the Broncos with a rousing version of Fight Like a Brave.
I am happy that Anthony Kiedis' porn 'stache is filling in quite nicely. My girlfriend and I wondered about the socks? leggings? tights? orthopedic hose? that Anthony Kiedis was donning. It was nice though, it made for a pleasant Tuesdays With Morrie type performance. It was just in time too because I imagine with as close to 8:00 it was that bed time was not too far away.
I am still trying to figure out the point of RHCP being there. Was it a way to bridge the gap between the young and the old? I am from the generation of people who were young enough to enjoy the Red Hot Chili Peppers in their prime. Even then I never quite understood "the light bulb has eaten my head" performance from Woodstock '94. I suppose we should all be happy the Flea had pants on during the half time show. Also, Flea...I wonder at what age it is time for a name change. Is he Flea at the PTA meetings?
"Flea, can you read the minutes from last month's meeting, also as we discussed last week we'll need you to wear underwear instead of a sock on your cock next time"
I feel like now when they perform Blood Sugar Sex Magik it really is about having to make everything is square with their diabetes before they have coital relations. The teenager in me hates to admit this but I would have preferred Bruno Mars without the unnecessary interruption of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. They just seemed out of place. Out of place like I feel when I am cruising the streets blasting Suck My Kiss and turning it down as soon as I approach the red light. I need to hold on to that brief moment in history when I was young and cool. Hold on while I turn this song by Kendrick Lamar up.
