Super Bowl's entertainment a super mess

Just when you thought Christina Aguilera’s career couldn’t get any worse, she goes and messes up the words to the National Anthem prior to the Super Bowl.

Go figure.

It’s OK Christina, I doubt anyone noticed aside from the 1.6 billion people across the world watching the biggest television event in history.

Not that I care, but if anyone is in need of a career revival, it’s Xtina, as the kids called her in 2002...back when she was relevant.

Her last album, released this summer (Bionic...more like moronic), was poorly received by critics, accusing her of just straight stealing from Lady Gaga.

It also marked the worst selling album of her career.

In addition, she’s been a trainwreck since her divorce and has become a staple in tabloid magazines reporting about her hard-partying lifestyle. I won’t even mention Burlesque, her alleged acting debut in the film that was released in the Fall that no one saw. Speaking of falling, I promise this is the last time I spend more than three minutes talking about Aguilera.

However, Aguilera’s miscue of the National Anthem pales in comparison to what the Black Eyed Peas did to my ears for 20 minutes during Sunday’s halftime show. My God, that was truly a monumentally horrid experience. Janet Jackson’s “wardrobe malfunction” all of a sudden doesn’t seem so bad now, does it?

And what about Slash? Has he aged since 1986? And enough with that hat, does it ever come off? Does he ever replace it?

The only slash I should have seen on that stage during the halftime show was the Black Eyed Peas getting slashed off it.

At the very least, Slash could have done us all a favor, taken his guitar and started beating the members of the Black Eyed Peas - Will.I.Am, Fergie and uhh, those other two - senselessly.

Lately, there has been a lot of talk about an NFL lockout. After seeing the Super Bowl halftime show over the past few years, that may not seem like such a bad idea.
