They'll perform a "New York-themed medley"
It would appear that Christina Aguilera is ready to return to the public eye again after giving birth to her daughter Summer Rain last year because today we learn that Xtina will be a featured performer during the NBA All-Star Game next month. Xtina, with some help from The Rockettes, will perform a “New York-themed medley” of songs right before the actual All-Star Game is played on February 15. The Xtina drought is over! She will soon be among us again … whether we like it or not. More »
Roc Nation Sports doing big things
Ohhh, to be a fly at this boxing event. Rihanna, Jay Z, and Jake Gyllenhaal quite possibly had more fun than I did last night (though it’s difficult to say, since I was watching the first season of Looking, and eating pizza, and folding laundry while the kids were at a birthday party). Jay Z launched Roc Nation Sports a while back and last night he held his first boxing event as a promoter (just after signing super middleweight champion Andre Ward). Sources say Gyllenhaal was schooling RiRi on some boxing stuff, and Rihanna was being Rihanna (dancing, and having tons of fun, and reapplying her red lipstick). Remember, Gyllenhaal has been filming for his new role as Billy “The Great” Hope in Southpaw, so he knows the sport well now. Jay probably knew I was busy and decided not to hit me up. It’s cool. Peep the gallery for more!

"I believe good things are on the horizon"
Former NFLer Michael Sam was featured on Oprah Winfrey‘s new show Oprah Prime last night where he talked about a range of topics, including his not being in the NFL right now. Oprah asked Michael about the infamous Draft Day Cake Kiss that he engaged in on national television with his boyfriend Vito Cammisano and was asked point blank if the kiss was staged and if he believes it was “too much” for America. Click the embed above to hear his answers to both questions. Below is a second embed that features Sam talking about the reasons he believes he is not playing professional football on team right now and what he sees in his future. Both clips are worth watching, check ‘em out now. More »
A Royal Gift
Prince Harry, the hot one, participated in the annual Xmas eve soccer match that he partakes in every year earlier today and as you can see in the gallery presented here … he sure looked pretty damn good doing so. The match took place in a magical city called Castle Rising in Norfolk, which I’m sure is very picturesque, but it’s the sight of Harry and ginger-pubed abs that got the most of the attention, I’m sure. HMMM. Yes. Enjoy, won’t you?
'A Dad's Dream'
Snoop Dogg and his son Cordell Broadus have signed on to appear in a 5-part docu-series for ESPN that will chronicle Cordell‘s journey from high school football player to NCAA college football player. The first trailer for this new docu-series, titled Snoop & Son: A Dad’s Dream, has been released and you can watch it in full above. From the look of this trailer, it would appear that we are going to see two sides of Snoop‘s personality … the doting dad who is proud of his son’s success and the doting dad who is also a music icon who is proud of his son’s success. I don’t really watch ESPN but this looks pretty great. The series will premiere on January 17 and I think I’ll be tuning in, will you?
The Queen & King meet a Duke & Duchess
Prince William and Kate Middleton have made their way to the US for a royal visit this week and last night they attended a Brooklyn Nets basketball game at Barclay Center in Brooklyn, NY. As fate would have it, America’s own royal couple Beyoncé and Jay Z were also in attendance at last nights Nets basketball game … which meant that B-Jay were able to meet and hang out with Wills and Kate. Click the video above to watch some of their interactions last night … then click below to watch a few Vine videos that also show the couples interacting on a loop. More »
There will be glitter.
Back in October we hear whisperings about a Katy Perry performance during the Pepsi Super Bowl XLIX halftime show, but the news hadn’t been confirmed yet. Perry was reportedly gearing up for a performance alongside Rihanna and Coldplay, and I guess a big part of her appeal is her fun and bubbly, mostly non-controversial image. As a result of players being charged with child abuse and domestic violence, the NFL has been coming under fire lately, and they need a drama-free night. So Katy Perry is, officially, headlining the halftime show! CLick inside for more!
Back in July we got an eyeful of the Warwick Rowing Team that decided to get naked in order to fight homophobia with their nakedness. Earlier this month, we were reminded of the great work they continue to do in this area of nakedness. Today we learn that the University of Nottingham Field Hockey Team has also decided to get naked in order to fight homophobia in sports and are sharing the video above of their equally hard and very important work. The video really speaks for itself. It’s probably wise to warn that the video is NSFW but in the fight for homophobia, we do what we must. Thanks for your efforts, guys. Please keep up the good work.
For at least a few weeks now, rumors have been going around that Miley Cyrus has been hooking up with Patrick Schwarzenegger, son of Maria Shriver and former California governor/sometimes actor Arnold Schwarzenegger. Today we have photographic proof that the pair have coupled up. Miley and Patrick were in attendance at a USC Trojans football game last night at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum and they did their best to show the world that they are a new couple by engaging in a bit of PDA … tho, as you can see below, Patrick looked way more intreated in his mobile phone than he was in kissing his new girlfriend Miley Cyrus.
