When you hire Prince for your half time show, you should expect that innuendo will be part of the act. I mean, his whole career is built on it.
So, why are they now questioning what this image was about?
In the sensitive post-wardrobe malfunction world, some are questioning whether a guitar was just a guitar during Prince’s Super Bowl halftime show.
Prince’s acclaimed performance included a guitar solo during the “Purple Rain” segment of his medley in which his shadow was projected onto a large, flowing beige sheet. As the 48-year-old rock star let rip, the silhouette cast by his figure and his guitar (shaped like the singer’s symbol) had phallic connotations for some.
They know what it was about. Prince was being his normal freaky self. Maybe he should have broke out with the song Head to make it more obvious.

>The proverbial they need to shut the fuck up. Shit the Washington Monument is a phallac symbol to some and that supposedly IS America. Get a fucking life.Sorry, I woke up to snow this morning and am a little "not as nice as usual."
>I love Juan.
>Absolutely.Well said, Juan.
>ditto my brother!!!! ditto!!!!as
>sorry for the typo on the end…"as"(accidently hittin' two letters at the same time) ;-(
>I enjoyed the half time show! I loves myself some Prince! The screen dance was Prince keepin' it real. So, what about the two white dudes kissing with the Snickers candy bar? Presenting homosexuality to viewers as an accidental act? Then to propose 'do something manly' will make the act go away…Yeah Juan, these white people is F'd up!
>They better leave my play baby daddy alone. I thought Prince's performance was good and Prince is Prince. It definately beats last year's half time…which was so boring that I can't even remember who performed. Okay, anybody who knows me knows I've been a Prince fan since way back. The first DVD I ever bought was Purple Rain (need I say more…lol).
>Oh, I get it Juan – you hate snow because it's white!
