Default Paul promises clean show

January 23, 2005 -- UK News

Paul promises clean show

Organizers of the US's biggest sporting event have promised a return to family-friendly fare and no repeat of last year's "wardrobe malfunction".

Host broadcaster CBS received an unprecedented 500,000 complaints after Justin Timberlake exposed Janet Jackson's right breast during half-time entertainment.

Sponsors vanished, CBS was fined $715,000, and the National Football League lost its reputation as a show the whole family could watch.

Now, the NFL has revealed how far it has gone out of its way to ensure good, clean fun.

Half-time entertainment at this year's 39th Super Bowl, on February 6 in Jacksonville, Florida, will be headlined by Paul McCartney, who has promised not to take off his clothes until after the show.

Other well-behaved performers include Alicia Keys, John Fogerty and country music singer Josh Gracin.

Fox hosts this year's game and the producer of last year's half-time show, MTV, has not been invited back.

The NFL had wanted to impose a 10-second delay on the broadcast but agreed to a live broadcast after Fox pointed out that Sir Paul and Keys were unlikely to do anything but sing.

Still, NFL executives went to Britain for extensive talks with Sir Paul and his staff about the precise detail of his show.

Every second of the show has been rehearsed and vetted by the jittery league. Fox has also banned any risque advertisements from its Super Bowl coverage.

As for the game itself, if anyone's still interested, final teams have not been decided. Playoffs continue this weekend.

He's very clean.

All joking aside, Paul McCartney is a Class Act!

Just gotta love that Paul...

I couldn't see Paul doing anything unclean. Paul is very proper. The day Paul does anything that shocking will be the day when pigs fly.

I think it's actually pretty funny that Paul has become so acceptable as something "clean" and "uncontroversial." Remember, this is the man who admitted publicly that he used LSD and smoked pot back in the day...I mean, does it strike anyone else as vaguely ludicrous?

Well, as long as he doesn't act like a boob, I guess it'll be fine!

I heard from a friend that they said in the post-game of the Patriots vs. Steelers game that he pulled out and isn't doing the halftime show.

I don't know if that's true, or if he's pulling my leg cuz he knows I'm a Beatles fan .

Can anyone confirm or deny this?

Well, it's still on the Superbowl.com website -- I checked it this afternoon, actually, because I needed info for another list.

I think your friend was pulling your leg.

[/ QUOTE ] Maybe your friend made that up since Paul is a Steelers fan and the Steelers didn't make it to the Super Bowl. I don't know.

That's the first thing that popped into my head!

Forget "wardrobe malfunction;" let's just hope he doesn't pull a "Fool On the Hill" if you know what I mean
