I have been incredibly under the weather the last few days, so this is going to be brief.

Super Bowl Halftime Show – The Weeknd
I’ve seen a lot of lazy, piss-poor takes on The Weeknd’s performance…like Mesfin Fekadu of the AP calling it “boring.” That’s literally all he had to say about it, with a couple of 3rd-grade metaphors thrown in there for flair. I hope you reached your word quota, Mesfin.
The Weeknd got up there in front of nearly 100 million people and displayed his talent: Singing.
He’s not a dancer like Bruno Mars or Beyoncé. He’s never been the type of entertainer to run all over the damn place. If you did your research, you should have known what to expect. The Weeknd is an incredibly gifted vocalist, and that’s exactly what he gave us.
I’ll give it to you…his schtick isn’t for everyone. His music is dark and some people don’t like it. I understand that. But to say it was “boring?” Come on, man. If anything was boring, it was the game itself.
What did you guys think about the performance? Let’s talk about it in the comments.
