Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk by Ben Fountain follows the Bravo squad back from Iraq and on a nationawide tour to celebrate their heroics. The whole audiobook takes place over the course of one day, Thanksgiving Day to be exact, while the soldiers are at Texas Stadium where they will honored at the Dallas Cowboys game. The halftime show at the game will feature Destiny’s Child. Presumably, the novel takes place at a time when Destiny’s Child is still famous.
Back in real life, there’s this little thing called the Super Bowl coming up on Sunday. The halftime show will feature Beyoncé. Rumor has it that Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland will join her on stage in what is clearly a Destiny’s Child reunion. Then rumor had it the reunion was off and now rumor has it that the reunion is back on.
Needless to say, with all this Destiny’s Child news swirling around me, I’ve got Say My Name, Say My Name on repeat.
