Rocker Dee Snider Attacks Shakira And Jennifer Lopezís Super Bowl Halftime Show
Deadline ^ | February 3, 2020 | Anita Bennett

Posted on 02/06/2020 5:14:25 PM PST by nickcarraway

Dee Snider did not like what he saw during Sunday’s Super Bowl halftime show.

The Twisted Sister frontman criticized Jennifer Lopez and Shakira for what he considered too sexy performances for the NFL’s family-friendly audience, and insisted a rock band would have brought a different vibe.

“Beginning to pole humping, ass slapping, ass shaking end. If that’s the requirements for a half-time show, none of the rock bands I know can or will do that. #justsayin,” Snider tweeted Sunday night.

503 10:05 PM - Feb 2, 2020 Twitter Ads info and privacy 216 people are talking about this Shakira and Lopez performed a medley of their hits, with Shakira dancing, playing instruments, surfing through the crowd, and shaking her hips while singing “Hips Don’t Lie.”

Lopez arrived on a stripper pole, shimmied and belted out several songs, including “Jenny From the Block.”

NFL ✔ @NFL That was incredible, @jlo + @shakira! 👏 #PepsiHalftime #SBLIV

Snider was apparently upset about the performances all night, and took to Twitter again this morning to let off more steam.

This time he responded to a Boston sports fan who called for the rocker to headline next year’s show, adding that he’s sure the longtime performer “could climb the pole too.” Snider’s response: “Yes…but I refuse to shake my ass or let someone slap it on stage!”

Dee Snider ✔ @deesnider Yes...but I refuse to shake my ass or let someone slap it on stage! @NFL https://twitter.com/billsimnnons/status/1224283283749580802 …

Boston Sports Guy @BillSimnnons @deesnider is good enough for @Facebook

His makeup is better than JLo

And I’m pretty sure he can climb the pole too.

It’s not surprising Snider disapproved of Lopez and Shakira’s high-octane set.

In September after the NFL announced the two Latin superstars would be headlining the show, he voiced his anger on social media.

“WTF!? @shakira and @jlo for this year’s @nfl halftime show!? Once again the great heavy music that rocks the stadiums week after week, game after game is completely ignored. I guess we don’t shake our ass enough!!” Snider tweeted on September 26.

Dee Snider ✔ @deesnider WTF!? @shakira and @jlo for this year's @nfl halftime show!? Once again the great heavy music that rocks the stadiums week after week, game after game is completely ignored. I guess we don't shake our ass enough!!

After cooling down a bit, he returned to the subject and insisted rock gets “no respect.”

“My point about this years @NFL halftime show isn’t a slight on @shakira or @JLo, it’s frustration that week after week rock is the go to music during games but gets no respect when it comes to the Super Bowl! And I don’t think I’m popular enough for that slot. But @Metallica…” he wrote.

Watching 20 guys jumping around a butt shaking woman is what the elites want. It’s 3rd world.

While Snider and many others wished for a different show, the NFL obviously was perfectly fine with it. J Lo and Shakira have been a** shaking and pole humping for as long as they’ve been in the music biz. Nobody can possibly be surprised by the show they put on.

Did not see it. my elderly neighbor lady said it was disgusting. She said that there was not enough clothing to cover the backsides of the women in question. I kiddingly said that the male audience might have liked it. Did not know there was a pole dance too! Oh boy did the Superbowl Halftime selectors stepped in it big time.

What are you going on about? What makes you think he was a transvestite? Would that include KISS?

I was at a sports bar and watched the debacle. I was floored how low the NFL sank. No class at all.

Puerto Rico flag?

Old women teaching young girls how to ‘perform’?

What shocked me the most. People applauded the show. I was disgusted and left.

BTW - I have Nielson rating monitors (3).

I don’t know if he was a transvestite, but he was certainly something freaky.

We cut our cable when Colon did his hate America and love Commies and Muslems.

Through some tech weenie magic via a grandson, we have tuned into the halftime show for my wife. She is multi talented re instruments she plays, has taught and performed in a marching band and in solo appearances.

She is not a prude, however, when the pole dancing happened, she turned off the tv.

The Super Bowl halftime show reminded me of a smaller, skinnier version of what I saw during an oilfield Hurricane evacuation at some Gentlemen’s club in Lafayette, Louisiana in 1985.

One of my stories from the good-ol’-days: Passed out standing up leaning against the speakers at a Twisted Sister concert at a local club in NJ (back in the 70s?). The pertinent question “was alcohol involved?” applies here.

Great band, great stage act.
