Had she done it we'd be also hearing about how desperate and boring it was, likely from the same folks. Anyway, I loved every moment of it, INCLUDING the M.I.A. bit (she looked fantastic as well). This whole era feels like a massive celebration of Madonna as the biggest and most important female artist of all time, and the Superbowl performance was the icing on the cake for me. Couldn't be more pleased right now. Also, I'm in love with this song. It's just so irresistible.
