Katy Perry at Sunday's Super Bowl Half-time Show
Katy Perry at Sunday’s Super Bowl Half-time Show

GLENDALE, Arizona (The Adobo Chronicles) – Super Bowl XLIX will go down in history as the most divisive sports event in the history of the United States. And we’re not even talking about the Patriots or the Seahawks and their minions of fans.

We’re talking about Katy Perry, the featured performer during the football game’s half-time show. Her performance practically divided the country in half.

USA Today‘s headline read: “Katy Perry Blew Away The Super Bowl Half-time Show.” The New York Daily News had a different opinion, describing Perry’s show, “more girlie meow than roar.”

Netizens posted, “It’s all theatrics” while others said “I’ve never been a fan of Perry, but I am now.”

Asian Americans were disappointed that Perry didn’t wear a Geisha costume. Native Americans wished she wore a feather headdress while sitting atop that monstrous mechanical lion. Latinos were one in saying about the performance, “No, no se puede.”  Finally,  African Americans said Missy Elliott should have been the featured performer instead of Perry.

What are we to do? Damned if you don’t. Damned if you do. Welcome to America!
