SANTA CLARA, CA—Disappointing the thousands of fans in attendance as well as an estimated 100 million viewers watching at home, the Super Bowl 50 halftime show was marred Sunday by the stadium’s functioning sound system, sources confirmed. “Right from the beginning, the sound was working normally, and unfortunately, I could clearly hear the singing,” said 29-year-old spectator Joe Kessler.

David Bowie to Chris Martin
… on being asked if he would like to collaborate.

To me Coldplay is singularly the most over rated talentless act that I can think of. I know that flys in the face of their millions of fans, but popularity alone was never a measure of greatness was it ? Quite apart that Bowie just didn’t do anything – we knew that, but that he also said ‘no’ to what would likely have been a big selling single is yet another testament to his greatness.
