Why are we so critical?

In case you missed it, the Super Bowl took place this past weekend. I didn’t watch it personally, but Blaine did, and so did my dad, and they both said the game was a good one in the sense it was a close score throughout the entirety of the game, keeping viewers on the edge of their seats, right up until the last few minutes.

A lot of folks tune into watching the Super Bowl even if they aren’t tremendous football fans, and I think the reasoning behind this is because of all of the affiliations that present themselves with the airing of the Superbowl, for example, incredible commercials, and obviously, the halftime show.

This year, Rihanna performed for the halftime show, and while I haven’t seen her performance in its entirety, I have seen snippets and odd clips from it. She sounded great, looked great, and the setup was rather dramatic in the sense of show business, which I imagine any artist would try to achieve if they were performing for the Super Bowl halftime show.

From what I’ve been able to gather from the internet, people seem to either absolutely love Rihanna’s performance, or, on the other hand, absolutely despise it. I’ve read a few opinions regarding the show, and while doing so, I couldn’t help but ponder how bloody critical a lot of us are.

You’ve got folks praising this woman for putting on a hell of a show, suspended in the air on a raised platform, being pregnant all the while. You’ve got folks accusing her of lip-syncing, although from the clips I’ve seen it certainly doesn’t look or sound like Rihanna is lip-syncing to me, and you’ve got other folks slamming her performance for being too boring in the sense Rihanna didn’t dance much. Then you have people ridiculing Rihanna for even performing being pregnant and putting her child at risk.

Honest to God, I don’t think people are happy with a damn thing anymore.

By all means, if you think you can put on a better show than Riri, pregnant or not, go for it. Otherwise, shut the hell up and recognize this woman’s undeniable talent.
