Beyoncé at Super Bowl 50 in Dsquared2

Posted on February 08, 2016

Beyoncé performs onstage (with Bruno Mars and Chris Martin of Coldplay) during the Pepsi Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show at the Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California.

 

We feel that this costume makes a fairly decent metaphor for the entire Super Bowl 50 Half-Time Show:

In other words, it’s fine, but kind of bland and expected.

That’s right. We said it.

Her performance was fine but this just strikes us as a sexier take on Janet’s old Rhythm Nation costumes, with the added bonus of implied violence, what with all the bullets and bandoliers. We’re not mad at it, but it didn’t so much as raise one of our eyebrows when she stepped out wearing it.
