Jessica Simpson, Ashlee Simpson, Britney Spears discussed on The News Junkie


Weekend edition. If it's important to you, it's on and probably being mocked by the news junkie Johnson would somebody broke and needed only dead and gone looking marching song When I go, Just put death by rock and roll. Sure, 55 And I was wondering how many times you think they run through that halftime show. You know, Like how many times you think they practiced the halftime show with all the stuff that they have going on, I feel like a decent amount and probably not on site. You need one time on site, but they have like a practice facility or something Lot for sure. No. One Beyonce did hers a few years ago. They had like a behind the scenes thing, and it was like in a warehouse and everyone was You know, Practicing was probably even little sections to that was for marching band where you have a band in the band's about to go on tour, and they just run out like this big place, and they they like walk through everything that they're going to do before, and I'm pretty sure because they have to rent a big space to put the show on him and set up the stage and do the whole thing especially With tours that are heavy on like dance numbers, stuff like that. So I remember. I saw Britney Spears at Starbucks wants because she was in Orlando, and I'm pretty sure she was rehearsing her tour at one of the sound stages of Universal studio has got the big Area for that. There's also like convention halls or probably could do it, too. So there's not winging going on here. They probably dozens and dozens of times are doing front to back this entire performance. So they really minimize any kind of things that could go wrong. I mean, that's why I always think when I When I watched the Olympics and I see the opening ceremonies, and you see, like the huge groups of people playing music and all choreographed together, I could mean they must have spent months trying to work this out. And the weekend. I'm sure has been working on this for an incredibly long time because it's such a big production. And when I saw the photo was a weird photo for a couple of reasons it was J. Lo Behind the scenes last year. She was a performer right for last year's support from the block and Chiquita. So she and secure I believe are are in the tunnels underneath the stadium, and they're about to come out and they're surrounded by the whole crew. And the first thing you think it's like, Whoa, look at all these people without mass on and you realize that this was before all this nonsense really broke loose. And you look at them and you go. Can you even imagine the stress of that moment? We're about to go out and perform. And if we screw up, there's no net man. You're you're going to make a fool of yourself in front of hundreds of millions of people, not to mention if you screw up something bad, then that's gonna go doubly triply Viral Afterwards, a lot of the Super Bowl halftime performances have been They use a lot of backup. You know, they use a lot of I wanna wants a lip sinking but tracks the track so that in case anything goes down, you have producer DJ in the background. Just put that channel up a little bit more. One of those many people they've gone too. And they said, Hey, we would love do you love to have you performed at the Super Bowl and they go No, It's like too much stress. I wouldn't want to take that on that. Or maybe they want to take the high road and say, like, No, You know, we we would never fake a performance like this. Like, Remember, the Chili Peppers did like a guest spot. None of them even plugged in their guitars just to show everybody plays. Guitar has no record going into it. I remember one that always stuck out to me was when Michael Jackson did, and he did it incredible halftime show. Uh, at the time, it seemed like now it just seems weird and creepy, but because he did, like, heal the world and there was there was a card stunt in the stands where they showed, like Children holding hands all around the bowl, and he had Completely fake or completely turned off headset microphone on much like Britney Spears or Garth Brooks, would you sure? And then, when he went to address the crowd, actually, like using a live microphone, they handed him a microphone. I handed him a microphone. And he said, I love you Children is beautiful thing. Everything is great. And then he hands off to party at my hands. Many hands off the microphone in somebody like why use the one attached to your head and continues to lip sync into the fake microphone? Yeah, there's a lot of pressure that I wouldn't really blame somebody for lip sinking honestly, normally, I would like if I go pay to see you live. You're putting on a concert live, whether it's a stadium or arm or intimate show. I want to see you play it live, even if it's not exactly as it it sounded on the recording. But if I'm watching or from playing the Super Bowl, if I was in a band playing basketball, I would absolutely consider Not having to risk as many things. I didn't have to rip all the Ashlee Simpson is sure. Yeah, whatever I could rely on to make sure I didn't look like a fool. So lots of pressure as that momentum builds. Speaking of Ashley Simpson, did you see What? Her sister Jessica Simpson tweeted. When the whole subway thing came out, I saw that there was something other, but I didn't get the story. The subway lawsuit that's saying, you know, this is definitely not tuna or whatever. And Jessica Simpson said something like I get it at subway. It's confusing because she said, chicken of the sea and, uh, she may have been a Trailblazer on that. Just a trendsetter. The White House is making some moves. Friends. They've got a plan in there. Wanna tell us about this Plan B. Biden administration. Is hoping to resurrect a proposal that was surprisingly from the Trump administration.
