After rumors that the controversial pop singer Madonna was under consideration to perform at the Super Bowl halftime show, the National Football League has assured fans that its Super Bowl shows will be “appropriate for our audience.”
“We have not commented on any potential musical performers for the Super Bowl and will not until we make an announcement,” NFL vice president of communications Brian McCarthy told CNA on Oct. 12.
On Oct. 3 the sports website SB Nation reported that Madonna would be part of the February championship game’s halftime entertainment.
Bill Donohue, president of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights, said that Madonna’s history of religious provocation makes her unsuitable as a performer at Super Bowl XLVI.
