Last night, as millions of viewers across America watched, Beyoncé Knowles wiggled, shook, thrusted, strutted, shrieked, and convulsed during the Super Bowl halftime show. Her outfit left little to the imagination, except perhaps to speculate on which Satanic cult lent her the risqué costume. The singer’s choice of moves and attire bars her from future complaints of being reduced to a sex object.
But Michelle Obama is proud of Beyoncé, tweeting her approval of the “phenomenal” performance and courteously attaching her initials to the tweet, in case people still don’t know who the FLOTUS is.
What was “mo” proud of? Beyoncé’s commitment to unbridled sexiness in front of a family audience? The performance was lengthy and Beyoncé’s physical endurance impressive — a result of Michelle’s “Let’s Move!” campaign?
Another question: did Michelle O. tweet her pride when The Who performed a tamer, more wholesome show in 2010? Or when Bruce Springsteen wore clothes to entertain the nation in 2009? Maybe the FLOTUS was just proud that Beyoncé didn’t lip-synch this time.
