The Super Bowl 2020 LIV Halftime show was polished, highly produced and vulgar
American Thinker ^ | 02/03/2020 | Andrea Widburg

This year, Super Bowl LIV took place in Miami. It was, therefore, appropriate for the halftime show to have a Latin beat, with Shakira and J-Lo as the headliners. Still, some people asked, "Did the show have to be so vulgar?"

On the pro side, Shakira and J-Lo are both superb entertainers, the songs they used were fun and energetic, the Latin beat rocked, and the backup performers were excellent. All in all, the show was a polished 14 minutes of top-flight Latin-infused pop music and dancing.

Any people who attended a stadium show just to see these two performers, both of whom sing and dance extremely well, would have felt they got their money's worth. Bravo!

But on the con side, the show was vulgar, and that's not just because, in keeping with all Latin dancing going back to the early 20th century, there was a lot of hip-shaking. Few people are going to get bent out of shape by that traditional Latin American dance dynamic.

While shaking hips are now old hat, there were still a lot of vulgar moves and costumes in the halftime show:

* Shakira implied bondage by wrapping a rope around herself.

* Bevies of athletic young women thrusting their pelvises at the TV cameras.

* Shakira writhed on the floor as a rapper bent over her body.

* Shakira ululated while flicking her tongue at the camera.

* J-Lo and her back-up dancers wore leather bondage outfits reminiscent of the leather gear fetish gay men wore in San Francisco's Folsom District in the 1970s and 1980s.

* J-Lo wagging her half-naked butt at the camera. J-Lo and her male backup dancers kept grabbing their own crotches.

* J-Lo did some pole-dancing in a minimalist costume that barely covered her lady parts,

It was a celebration of girl=crotch in rapid-fire, machine-gun rhythm. Period.

I thought Shakira and J Lo had more self-respect than that.

Should have provided a PG rating before the heavy duty stuff started. IMO

With all of this sexually explicit dancing, it was bizarre to have the show end with a chorus of sweet-faced girls (including J-Lo’s own daughter) doing the usual women’s empowerment shtick. For old-fashioned feminists, sexually objectifying oneself has little to do with empowerment.

ROFLMBO, then you know nothing about either performer. Shakira has made a career off of shaking her hips and showing her ass. J-Lo cares only about getting paid and getting attention... and girl-crotch is how you do that these days.

It’s empowering for them to do it, sexist for you to watch.

Isn’t that how it works?

Yeah, I quickly scanned this on AT earlier and wondered (from other reports I read) if this person actually watched it. (I didn’t) But kids in cages singing the anti American (IMHO) ‘born in the usa’ by springbot? Sexualizing scantily clad females? Crotch grabbing? Yeah, it musta been awesome.

Slut walks from the left push the concept that there is no shame in being a sex workers.

Tern Vogue has sold that same message to teenaged girls.

I was thoroughly disgusted by the whole halftime performance.

My wife was disgusted that J-Lo looked that good and could perform that athletically at 50 years of age.

So, is it okay to ogle women and see them as sex objects again?

Just prostitutes/strippers. The Low IQ crowd tends to go primal.
