My coworker Helin Jung and I can’t seem to agree over Prince’s halftime performance. She wasn’t impressed (”It didn’t fully illuminate his majesty,” she says), but I dug the wailing guitar solos, the lovely color scheme of his suit, and even the hair wrap (dude has a perm and it was raining — I’m not hatin’). Besides the odd choice of covers (The Foos’ ”Best of You” was… special), I thought he held it down. One thing we can agree on is how awesome his Purple Highness was in his Super Bowl press conference. The highlight:
Prince: “Contrary to rumor, I’d like to take a few questions right now.”
A reporter: “Prince, how did you feel about performing…”
Hit it! Another fantastic set.
His name is Prince, he’s fabulous, and he does what he wants.
