The bar I was in is not a Beyoncé bar. It's a Bad Religion, Bleeding Rainbow, Tiger Army type of bar. Occasionally, you'll hear Run-D.M.C. or Billy Idol or Kurtis Blow. At halftime, when the lights ceremoniously dimmed in the Superdome, they also dimmed in the bar. You could hear a hairpin drop. Like very good politicians, great pop stars bring us together without irony or apology. They're all the pleasure, none of the guilt. That's Madonna. That's Michael Jackson. That's Prince, whose sublime 2007 halftime show Beyoncé came this close to eclipsing.If you hadn't seen Beyoncé do those sorts of video effects before, watch this. It's really something.
