(Atlanta, GA) – Super Bowl 53 was underwhelming if you were looking for a high scoring game. If you were focusing on defense, you were pleased. Either way you play it, a win is a win and you won’t hear any complaints from Tom Brady or Bill Belichick after the Patriots defeated the Rams 13-3 giving the duo their 6th Super Bowl win which now ties the Steelers for the most. N
Brady 21/35 for 262 yards and no TDs while Jared Goff 19/38 for 229 yards and no TDs. At halftime, the score was 3-0 Patriots. The only TD would come from a short drive by Sony Michel set up by a catch from Rob Gronkowski.
It’s the lowest scoring game in Super Bowl history. And some are saying it was the most boring as well. The same sentiments were shared for the halftime show as well leaving the commercials standing alone in the he Super Bowl 53 highlight mentions.
Another highlight, New England Patriots receiver Julian Edelman grabbed MVP honors catching 10 passes for 141 yards. He’s now one of seven receivers to win Super Bowl MVP.
(Minneapolis, MN) – I hope this is a joke. It could potentially be one of the top Super Bowl halftime performances in history. BUT Janet Jackson told fans on social media not to hold their breath.
The singer confirmed she wouldn’t join in a tweet on Saturday. “To put to rest any speculation or rumors as to whether I will be performing at the Super Bowl tomorrow; I will not,” she wrote. “Thank you for your support and I do look forward to seeing you all very soon.”
Jackson and Timberlake performed together at the 2004 Super Bowl, during which the infamous “wardrobe malfunction” occurred.
Watch The Performance:
During the performance, timberlake ripped off a piece of Janet’s costume during the lyric “have you naked by the end of this song”; resulting with Jackson’s right breast and nipple with a sun-shaped ring on it being exposed on live television.
The Federal Communications Commission fined Jackson and CBS — which aired the game — $550,000 (a court eventually ruled the fine was wrongly imposed) Janet Jackson took the heat while Timberlake’s career was left unscathed.
Vox reports, Viacom, the parent company of MTV, which produced the 2004 show, blamed Jackson: They punitively blacklisted her music videos from airing and her songs from playing on their radio stations. CBS rescinded Jackson’s invitation to present at the Grammy’s, and she was reportedly pressured into skipping the ceremony. Timberlake, on the other hand, attended and won two awards.
