Video: Kelly Clarkson: Talented And Pure! M.I.A Talentless And Vile

By Robert Paul Reyes

"M.I.A.`s bad behavior during the Super Bowl XLVI halftime show is dominating online chatter Monday, overshadowing what many say is Kelly Clarkson`s stellar rendition of the national anthem.

Clarkson, who was barely recognizable in her new Cleopatra-style hairdo, delivered a pitch-perfect performance of "The Star-Spangled Banner" to kick off Super Bowl XLVI at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis."

Kelly Clarkson, the original American Idol, has achieved phenomenal success in the pop world, without going the route of Britney Spears or Lindsay Lohan. Clarkson has remained on top of the charts for about a decade without resorting to cheap stunts, silly outfits, or skanky behavior.

When you watch Clarkson perform, you aren`t thinking "wow her shirt is so short" or "damn girlfiend is stumbling all over the stage." With Clarkson it`s all about the music, and you are blown away by her talent and energy.

M.I.A has had only three hits in the last decade, and in a desperate attempt to jump start her career she flipped the bird and uttered an expletive while performing before a worldwide audience of gazillions during the Super Bowl halftime show.

What a contrast between the beautiful and pure Clarkson, and the vile and vulgar M.I.A. We will continue to marvel at Clarkson`s talent for years to come, and M.I.A will quickly slip back into obscurity.
