I'm the furthest you could be from a fan of rap/pop but outside of Lightfoot, that Super Bowl lineup is wayyyyyy better. Carly Rae, Biebs and Mariana's Trench all have some of the most idiotic lyrics.
Whereas PSY's song is a pretty neat satire of life in that one district of Seoul, and even I can appreciate that Beyonce, Jay-Z and Kanye have more artistic talent (not really the type of art I like but oh well) than Carly Rae, Justin Bieber and Mariana's Trench.

I am a fan of all music, my playlists are unlike anything you will ever see, completely random hard rock, indie, rap, reggae, pop, hip hop, country etc), with an open mind you can like anything. Sadly very few people are capable of this.
I enjoy all types of music from classic rock to modern pop....I dont care for any of the artists in general at either the Grey Cup Or Superbowl...that is you wont find any or their music in my collection. Point is....you cant deny the stardom status of Justin Bieber, no matter how much you dislike him. To me he is no different than any of those artists at the Superbowl. Its all junk IMO as I am not a boyband fan nor am I a Rap fan. Having said that....I absolutely love NY Empire State of Mind by Alicia Keys and Jay-Z I believe and cant help but tap my foot to some of Carly Rae's or Bieber's hits.
These people are international stars with the exception of Marianna's Trench. Its laughable that so many Canadians always think American crap is superior to Canadian crap. Canadian music has as many if not more huge music industry people per capita than any country in the world.
I don't know how people can ***** about the CFL getting the biggest names in entertainment to do the half time show. I work with a lady who doesn't give a fiddlers **** about sports but she tuned into see the show.
Bottom line is the CFL put together ANOTHER lineup that the NFL would love to steal for the Superbowl.
Cry all you want but the only singer who has recently had a bigger hit than Beiber and Carly Rae is PSY.
The CFL exposed itself to a different demographic with the show. The half time show is mainly for the TV audience anyway. Most of the fans at the stadium are hitting the can and getting a refill.
They booed though. I agree without you charlio but the fans didn't. They want the CFL to be a old white guys games, those fans that booed. That won't sell out east.
