Dear Gossips,

ThereΓÇÖs a rumour circulating that Madonna will perform at halftime at the Super Bowl. Her people have not denied the report which basically means theyΓÇÖre still negotiating. Some people are questioning whether or not MadonnaΓÇÖs audience is a Super Bowl audience.

The people who watch the Super Bowl for the actual Super Bowl will watch the Super Bowl no matter whoΓÇÖs performing at the half. They want the people who might not otherwise watch the Super Bowl to be watching the Super Bowl. If IΓÇÖm Madonna though, IΓÇÖm wondering whether or not I want to join The Who, Bruce Springsteen, and Tom Petty - all past Super Bowl performers post Janet Jackson/Justin Timberlake tit-flash (which he was a total pussy about and never had her back) of a certain, um, generation. You know how Madonna feels about being part of that, um, generation, right? After all, look at her face.

And since Justin Timberlake ripped open Janet JacksonΓÇÖs breast flap, Super Bowl halftime performances are nothing if not super, super, super safe. If there is to be a Madonna at the Super Bowl, it likely wonΓÇÖt be the humping or girl-kissing kind. Especially not in this environment. Because Madge still needs to sell, sell, sell for Live Nation. ThereΓÇÖs a new album coming in the Spring. Madge gets into bed with Budweiser?

Very curious to see how this plays out.

Sorry about the delay in getting started today. The new site went live yesterday and some things can only be tested when they go live and weΓÇÖre still sorting out those kinks. Appreciate your patience and my apologies for the inconvenience.  

Yours in gossip,
