Watch: Alicia Keys’s Rendition Of ‘The Star-Spangled Banner’ Made NFL Players Weep

And... Yeah... Me Too.
Super Bowl XLVII - Baltimore Ravens v San Francisco 49ers
AK Makes All The Big Boys Cry

The biggest thing that happened last night (other than, like, the actual football game… I guess) was the Super Bowl Half Time performance heard ’round the world. Earlier today we celebrated the awesomeness that was Beyoncé, Kelly, and Michelle (but mainly Kelly) at Super Bowl XLVII, but I just watched Alicia Keys‘s rendition of The Star-Spangled Banner… and yeah. Awkward. How good it was. I know people like to show off with this song, but I really appreciated that she sang it fairly simply, without a lot of fancy tricks, and pitches, and weave-flinging– not that I’m coming at anyone who’s done it like that… because I’m not! Anyway, I was sooo about to clown Ray Lewis  and his fellow-Raven who were totally crying at the end of this video… but then I realized that I kinda was too. Whatever. Peep the video for more!

P.S. If the video gets removed you can watch it here.

Wait, Britney Spears Might Have Just Confirmed Her Las Vegas Residency!

Britney Says '#VivaLasVegas'

Okay, I’m just gonna keep it reals. I have no idea what’s going on!!! Yesterday we heard reports that Britney Spears‘s Las Vegas deal had basically gone the way of DUNZO. Both Caesars Palace and Planet Hollywood confirmed that their schedules were booked and did not include a Britney Spears show. Some of you were pleased with the news, but I was kinda bummed for the sake of Trent… and I also suggested that this may not be the last we’d heard of Britney in Vegas. And voila! Britney (and her dog Hannah) took to Twitter to sorta, kinda hint at a Las Vegas residency… maybe??? Click inside and help me figure this out! Trent! Where you at?!?!?

The Britney Spears Vegas Show Is Not Happening After All

This, According To Caesars Palace
Britney Spears Visits The Nail Salon

So, a little while back we started hearing rumors about a possible Las Vegas stint for Britney Spears. There was allegedly a huge bidding war heating up amongst the hotel/casinos in the big city, and rumor had it that Brit-Brit was set to earn more than Celine Dion… AKA $100+ million dollars a year. That would have been insaaannneee! Alas, it doesn’t look like it’s going down this year. According to Ceasars Palace, they’re booked for the summer and there’s no Britney Spears in their line-up.

Christoph Waltz Of ‘Django Unchained’ Will Make His ‘Saturday Night Live’ Debut

With Musical Guest, The Alabama Shakes!

You know that feeling when you go to IMDB and you realize that a particular actor has been in, like, 5 of your favorite movies? Okay, that was me with Christoph Waltz, like, two seconds ago. Everyone now knows him from Django Unchained (Trent‘s favorite movie of 2012, and mine too), and he recently picked up a Golden Globe Award for his brilliant performance as Dr. King Schultz. I also associate Christoph with Inglourious Basterds (another Tarantino flick), but totally forgot that he also starred in Roman Polanski‘s Carnage (my absolute favorite movie of 2011) and Water For Elephants (yes, I loved that movie)! Apparently, I am sooo Team Christoph, lol. Which is why I was psyched to hear that he’ll be hosting an upcoming episode of Saturday Night Live. Click inside for more!

Watch: Courtney Love Covers ’99 Problems’ By Jay-Z

LOL, C. Love DEFFO has more than 99 Problems

Watch: Kendrick Lamar Performs ‘Poetic Justice’ And ‘Swimming Pools (Drank)’ On ‘Saturday Night Live’

Kendrick Makes His SNL Debut!
'I Write Poems In These Songs'

Earlier today we got to check out some of my fave skits from last night’s episode of Saturday Night Live, and it was definitely a good time. But the main reason I was excited about the episode was because Kendrick Lamar was performing! He rocked out to one of my fave tracks (from his debut album good kid, m.A.A.d. city) Poetic Justice, and he also performed Swimming Pools (Drank), which just went certified platinum. Between the controversy he stirred up with his last video, that Dido feature, and this SNL appearance– and the fact that his album is, actually, amazing– methinks the Compton rapper has arrived. Maybe he and Lady Gaga can make a [nother] song together now, lmao! Check out his low-key performance for Poetic Justice above, and click inside to see him turn things up a bit for Swimming Pools. And you can check out the lyrics to both songs at DirectLyrics.
