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.
