2015-super-bowl

Snagging the Super Bowl Halftime Show is a huge honor for any musician. The exposure is priceless and that’s why the NFL historically hasn’t paid any of the acts to perform. With the telecast breaking new ratings records on a yearly basis, the revenue artists generate after their performance is also rising. The league now wants a piece of that lucrative pie. #greedymofos

According to a new report by the Wall Street Journal, the NFL has already “asked at least some of the acts if they would be willing to contribute a portion of their post-Super Bowl tour income to the league, or if they would make some other type of financial contribution, in exchange for the halftime gig.” Unsurprisingly, the proposal has received lackluster responses from the contenders’ representatives. Find out which three acts are the reported frontrunners for the gig below.

Nicki Minaj Booty Drops ‘Anaconda’ Music Video

In: Donovan, Music
nicki-minaj-anaconda-video

At first listen, I absolutely hated “Anaconda.” However, it’s begun to grow on me upon subsequent listens. I blame Sir Mix-A-Lot for that. Nicki Minaj wisely samples the Seattle rapper’s 90s smash hit, “Baby Got Back” for her latest single.

“Anaconda” was originally recorded by Missy Elliott back in 2012 but was shelved. Minaj resurrected the track with production assistance from Polow Da Don and Da Internz. It’ll be featured on her forthcoming studio album titled The Pinkprint.

The 31-year-old rapper just premiered the accompanying visual. As expected, there’s plenty of booty dropping, twerking and all things ass-related. Most likely NSFW, especially if your office is a conservative one. Drake makes a cameo in the clip, as the recipient of a lap dance from Nicki. Check out all the action below. Make sure you’re all ready for the jelly before proceeding.

It’s true!!! The rhythm is eventually gonna get you.

Taking a page from Carole King’s highly-successful Broadway production, Beautiful, Gloria Estefan is bringing her life to the stage in a new bio-musical titled On Your Feet!- titled after her 1989 hit. The production is to be helmed by Tony winner Jerry Mitchell (Kinky Boots, Hairspray), with a book by Alexander Dinelaris (Still Life) and choreography by Sergio Trujillo (Jersey Boys).

An open casting search called “Reach Gloria” will be held this September in Miami and New York. Submissions are now being accepted on the show’s official website.

“Finding the right performers to tell our story on the Broadway stage is the most important step in this project. … Our own journey together started in Miami, a city that has been such an inspiration to us both, and it only felt right that the city be a cornerstone of our search for the next generation of bright talent.” – Gloria Estefan

Still mourning the loss of Breaking Bad? Perhaps this cute little short reuniting the AMC drama’s stars will temporarily ease your pain.

Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul join forces to run a pawn shop called Barely Legal Pawn. Julia Louis-Dreyfus visits the establishment to pawn off her Emmy Award. Why? Because she bought an island while drunk and is now broke. The duo, however, aren’t willing to pay top dollar because it’s for a supporting category and also for a comedy (Seinfeld). Both Cranston and Paul won dramatic Emmys. Those snooty drama elitists ;)

The hilarious short is from the Television Academy to promote the 2014 Primetime Emmys airing on Monday, August 25. Watch the clip below.

hilary-duff-all-about-you-lyric-video

I don’t know about you, but I’m all about Hilary Duff’s new single.

Wisely, her team downgraded “Chasing The Sun” to buzz single status as a result of its underwhelming performance. In its two weeks of release, “All About You” has already garnered good will from her fans and critics, along with charting much better on iTunes in several foreign territories. Part folk, part pop, the Savan Kotecha-penned track is a catchy little anthem. The more I listen to it, the more I’m becoming a fan.

The 26-year-old entertainer just debuted its sexy lyric video. Duff sheds her clothes to lip sync the song’s lyrics. Whether seductively looking over her shoulder or tossing her hair playfully, Hilary shows the world she’s all grown up. Not an in-your-face Miley Cyrus kind of way, but more demurely. Give the clip a view below.

Adam Driver Graces GQ’s September Issue

Adam Driver may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but there’s no denying he looks pretty darn good on the cover of GQ’s 2014 September Issue. The publication calls him ‘his generation’s cure for the cookie-cutter leading man.’ I couldn’t agree any more.

With a burgeoning career which includes a high profile role in the upcoming Star Wars Episode VII and buzz-y performance in This Is Where I Leave You, not to mention his Girls gig, Driver is one of the hottest actors in Hollywood at the moment. Wise decision for GQ to pick him to show off Fall’s hottest looks. Check out more photos snapped by Paola Kudacki below, along with memorable quotes from the accompanying interview.

On His Rising Career

“It’s very nice. But in a way, I don’t feel like I’ve really put in my dues. Like it doesn’t feel earned.”

Jennifer Hudson Is Dangerous On New J-Hud Track

In: Donovan, Music

Jennifer Hudson is sticking to a retro sound for her latest, titled “Dangerous.” The 32-year-old singer channels her inner ride or die chick on the track.

While I’m loving the beat and Hudson’s vocals, I don’t feel it’s exactly what radio will back. Sadly, none of the singles off JHUD, out in stores September 23, are doing much in terms of airplay or downloads. “I Can’t Describe (The Way I Feel)” and “Walk It Out” peaked at No. 29 and No. 107 respectively on the R&B chart, with her R. Kelly duet, “It’s Your World” not even making a blip.

Hopefully, she has a secret weapon on her third studio album that will become a smash. I fear if she doesn’t hit with this LP, it’s the end of her recording career. She’s far too talented for this to happen. Give “Dangerous” a listen below and watch her Today performance of the track.

From the man who brought us Juno and Up In The Air, Jason Reitman takes a hard look at how we connect with each other these days. “Discover How Little You Know About The People You Know,” the tagline poses. One way to definitely find out is to search through one’s browser history, text messages, TUMBLR feeds and other ways we communicate in the technological age.

Based on a novel of same name written by Chad Kultgen, the film stars Adam Sandler, Jennifer Garner, Emma Thompson, Judy Greer, Dean Norris, and Ansel Elgort. Men, Women & Children will make its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival next month. It then opens in limited release on October 3 and expands on October 17. Elgort presented the teaser trailer to Good Morning America Tuesday and said the following.

“I think it tells a really important story that hasn’t been told yet — the world has changed so much in these past few years with social media and the Internet, how it’s affected us and the way we communicate with people, and the way we have relationships in general, both romantic or just friendships,” Ansel Elgort explained. “One of the things our director Jason said was that it’s so funny in this world now, where all we do is connect, connect on our phone, we’re starting to disconnect.”
