Super Bowl

LEAVE IT TO KANYE TO COMPLICATE MATTERS

Turns out Rihanna is having super problems getting a sidekick for her Super Bowl performance. As is custom in halftime performances, the main act usually shares the stage with other performers who they’ve worked with in the past. When she first signed on, Rihanna was planning to do her song, Four Five Seconds with her originals collaborators Paul McCartney and Kanye West, but that was before Kayne went cuckoo and started praising Hitler. Producers made it clear Kayne is persona non grata, so she’s scrambling to replace him. Of course, she can console herself with the fact that her performance will be ideal to promote her Fenty clothing collection, and sales are expected to zoooom…

ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER : WHAT’S GOING ON HERE?

Arnold Schwarzenegger posted this provocative photo that looks like a movie poster on instagram today. It was simply labeled “Coming February 2022.” Celebrity journalists scrambled, but could find NO information about a movie coming out. Certainly Arnold would ENJOY playing Zeus, the King of all the Greek gods on Mount Olympus in Greek mythology, but a film doesn’t seem to be happening. Some speculated that the picture could be a hint about an upcoming Super Bowl (Feb 13) ad, but there is no indication of WHAT it might be advertising. Sly Stallone must be burning with curiosity…

BRITNEY SPEARS AND CHARLIE EBERSOL ONE MORE TIME

AG059420_01britcut

Four months along, and Britney Spears and Charlie Ebersol are still going strong. They were photographed leaving the Super Bowl in Glendale Arizona, looking not particularly interested in each other. But Britney recently expressed her love for Charlie onstage in Las Vegas, so looks can be deceiving. It’s nice to see her doing something besides going to the mall.

M.I.A., THE BRENTWOOD MOM, GIVES SUPERBOWL AUDIENCE THE FINGER?

At first, when we saw British rapper M.I.A. give the finger to her Superbowl audience during Madonna’s performance, we assumed she was some kid rapper scrambling to pull attention away from Madonna. But she’s much more than that – she’s an established musician, artist, human rights activist, fashion icon, and Oscar nominee! She’s also 36 years old and a mother living in the very posh yuppie–land of Brentwood, California with her three year old son. Her baby-daddy is Benjamin Bronfman of the Bronfman dynasty. (So she’s one of those Brentwood mothers with strollers that we gripe about.) She was warned by the network NOT to do anything offensive on the family show and although the gesture is no big deal, she knew it was a bad idea. But we’re talking about her, so maybe it was worth looking a bit foolish.

GUESS WHO TELLS MADONNA WHAT TO WEAR – AND SHE LISTENS! (AND HOW ABOUT THAT SUPERBOWL SHOW?)

As controlling and manipulative as Madonna is known to be, she DOES have someone she turns to for a fashion opinion before she leaves the house for special occasions: her 15 year old daughter Lourdes. Lourdes is very opinionated and a surprising source of inspiration for her mother. When Madonna dressed to attend the New York premier of W.E., Lourdes was aghast and told Madonna that no respectable director would wear a corset! Madonna immediately changed into something more elegant but still dramatic (above.) Madonna ALSO keeps tabs on the music Lourdes is listening to, and it influences her creative vision. We were blown away by Madonna’s amazing Superbowl performance – tomorrow she’ll announce her new tour and we bet it’ll sell out FAST – she proved than no matter what you think of her, SHE STILL HAS IT!

WHAT’S WRONG WITH CHRISTINA AGUILERA?

Lately nothing has been going right for Christina. In her Super Bowl performance of the National Anthem she not only got the words wrong but her long drawn out overwrought rendition was excruciating. She was trying way too hard to impress with her vocal flexibility. And the plain black too-tight suit didn’t do a thing for her. Lately she’s had career setbacks, a divorce, a new boyfriend, and nights of too much partying. It makes you wonder.

BRAD PITT SPENDS TIME ALONE WITH EACH OF HIS KIDS

We like the way Brad Pitt bonds with his kids one at a time. That way they each feel special. This weekend he flew out of LAX to Miami and took Maddox, 8, to the Super Bowl. Mad loves sports and he and Brad often attend games while Pax loves playing video games with his dad. Brad also knows what little girls like and he has taken both Shiloh and Zahara – separately – to the American Girl store and bought them dolls that look like themselves.

HOPEFULLY, RIHANNA KNOWS BETTER THAN TO FALL FOR MATT KEMP

Rihanna is pictured here rehearsing for her performance at the Pepsi Superbowl Fan Jam in Tampa, Florida, tonight. We wonder if her latest flame, baseball player Matt Kemp, will be on the scene. What Rihanna may or may not know, she is not the only one Matt is seeing. Insiders say he’s very flirtatious and he is not seeing Rihanna exclusively, by any means.
