Word On The Street: Should Kanye West Perform At The Super Bowl?

Posted by , Aug 17, 2016 at 12:53pm

We search for Kanye stans on the streets of New York.


We hit the streets to find out if people in the real world support the Twitter movement to get Kanye West to perform at the Halftime Show of Super Bowl 51. People weren't as enthusiastic as his online supporters, but everyone gave Mr. West a begrudging respect.

Other suggestions ranged from a surprising "anyone but Beyonce" declaration to a request for the triumphant return of Janet Jackson (which really isn’t a bad idea). Our personal favorite was the older gentleman in the bucket hat who couldn’t get enough of Katy Perry’s performance with Missy Elliot two years ago.

Naturally, everyone had something to say about Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake’s #nipplegate incident, and we reserved the best take for last.
