Prince to entertain at Super Bowl

Updated:
NEW YORK (AP) McCartney, Jagger and now Prince.

For the third year in a row, a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame act will headline the Super Bowl halftime entertainment. This time it's Prince.

The Purple One will play at the game in Miami on February 4th.

The Super Bowl, which will be televised by CBS, is annually television's highest rated show.

The Rolling Stones headlined the halftime show for that Super Bowl, and two years ago it was Paul McCartney.

The NFL has tended to take a more cautious approach since Janet Jackson's widely criticized "wardrobe malfunction" at halftime of the 2004 game. That game also was televised by CBS.

Prince gained attention early in his career with raunchy lyrics and racy performances, but has toned down his act somewhat in recent years.
