Bruno Mars has been announced as the half time performer for this season’s Super Bowl, which is set to take place Sunday, February 2, 2014. Praise the football gods. Unfortunately, not everyone is pleased that one of the greatest performers of our generation will be gracing Super Bowl XLVIII with his presence. At Much, we feel it is our duty to show these people the way back to the light.
There has been a backlash on Twitter since news broke that Mars will be performing during the upcoming half time show. Many footballs fans (or people who like to complain) are upset that a game being held at the MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey will not feature a New Jersey native like Bruce Springsteen or Bon Jovi.
I get it. Hometown pride is alive and kicking in New Jersey, which is great. But it’s not customary for performers of the halftime show to also be from the State, such as Houston native Beyonce playing last season’s Super Bowl in New Orleans. Also, and just playing devil’s advocate, the state the Super Bowl is set in doesn’t even represent the two teams who end up in the final game, so why should we hold the half time show to a different standard?
I could further discuss these two points, but let’s just go straight to the source. Many New Jerseyians are upset that Hawaiian-born Bruno Mars will be playing the New Jersey show.
Maybe they are unaware of the genius that is Bruno Mars.
It’s possible they’ve never heard his incredible catalogue, from songs about heartbreak to the hilarious.
It could be that they are unaware of his ninja-like photoboming skills.
Or that he could give lectures on the proper way to sit on a couch.
The truth is, you can’t please everyone.
Haters gonna hate.
But fans of Bruno Mars, keep smiling.
Because even if you can’t tell the difference between a first down and a touch down, February 2 is gonna be amazing.
Now let us join hands and give thanks that the good people of New Jersey will be welcoming Bruno Mars into their house of football on the day of rest.
Baby Bruno thanks you for your time.
