Super Bowl gets even queerer

Fergie

The other day we reported that Dallas will play host to what is being billed as the first-ever gay Super Bowl block party, the night before the big game in Arlington in February.

So perhaps it’s only fitting that the Black Eyed Peas, the band led by bisexual singer Fergie, have been selected as halftime performers. From The Dallas Morning News:

The Black Eyed Peas will play the Super Bowl XLV halftime show at Cowboys Stadium in February, a source confirmed to the Dallas Morning News on Wednesday.

A spot playing at the Super Bowl is considered a highly coveted gig for musicians. Last year’s Super Bowl averaged 106.5 million viewers and peaked at about 114 million, making it the most watched show in U.S. TV history.

Maybe Fergie, who’s also spoken in support of marriage equality, can stop by the Cedar Springs fiesta.
