Since we opened up Madonna dialogue on MSF already with this post detailing six Super Bowl halftime show ideas that I personally would have preferred much, much more than the Material Girl, I suppose I should keep you updated on the latest.
Word “broke” late this afternoon that Madonna’s set list for her Super Bowl 46 halftime show had been leaked.
Here are the details, via Jim Farber of the New York Daily News:
They are, in order, her new single, “Give Me All Your Luvin’,” featuring Nicki Minaj and M.I.A, followed by “Ray of Light,” “Vogue,”” Music,” and “Holiday.”
Now, before you go screaming at the injustice of “Papa Don’t Preach” or “Sorry” or any other Madonna hit you love not being included, let me paraphrase the giant caveat that Farber includes in his post: this is all based on the Wikipedia entry for Super Bowl halftime shows being updated, with the source of the update being “entertaimentwise.” I’m not sure why Farber chose to write it like that, instead of adding the .com or referring to it as Entertainment Wise, but whatever.
If you go to the EnterainmentWise.com post that details the alleged leak of Madonna’s halftime show set list, you’ll see that they cite HitFlix for the report. You’ll also notice that it is dated December 12th, 2011. So why is this being discussed like it’s some kind of late breaking leak now?
Farber adds this to his post:
But Madonna’s spokesperson, Liz Rosenberg, told The News, “Not accurate. They didn’t get it right.”
So there we are, although as he points out, a picture allegedly from rehearsal posted at TMZ suggests that “Vogue” will definitely be a song. And we already know that Nicki Minaj is likely to be there with Madonna on Sunday evening, so “Give Me All Your Luvin'” should be featured despite its egregious, though I suppose phonetically correct, misspelling.
Now back to your regularly scheduled Peyton Manning speculation and Blake Griffin dunk debate.
