What basketball game
Late last month we learned that Christina Aguilera would be opening the 2015 NBA All-Star Game in NYC, NY with a live performance in tribute to NYC and that Ariana Grande would be providing the halftime performance with a special guest. Last night, during said NBA All-Star Game, Xtina was joined by the famed Rockettes for a killer live tribute performance to New York City, which you can watch in full above. The halftime show, tho, was pretty damn good, too. Ariana Grande performed a string of her hit songs and was joined by Nicki Minaj for a live performance that probably made everyone forget that they were watching a basketball game. Watch Xtina‘s performance above and Ari & Nicki‘s performance below and see all you really need to see from the 2015 NBA All-Star Game. More »

The TV Guide
Last night, for the first time ever — at long last — I finally attended my first professional basketball game here in LA. I’ve lived here for almost a decade and in all those years, I’ve never been to a LA Lakers or a LA Clippers basketball game. I’ve been to many baseball games (both the Dodgers and the Angels games), I’ve been to hockey games (both the Kings and the Ducks games) and I’ve even been to a few soccer games (to see David Beckham in action with the Galaxy) but I’ve never been to a basketball game … until last night.

Back in November we learned officially that Katy Perry will be the headline performer during the Super Bowl XLIX Halftime Show on Super Bowl Sunday this weekend. Earlier this month, Katy told us that she invited Lenny Kravitz to perform the show with her … but there were rumors that she had at least one more surprise performer up her sleeve that will appear on stage with her and Lenny during the show. Today we hear that none other than rap LEGEND Missy Misdemeanor Elliott will be the surprise guest performer after Katy teased at a press conference yesterday that she will team up with an “old school” female singer during the halftime show. The news hasn’t been officially confirmed but the Associated Press spoke with a source that is confident that Missy will perform with Katy and Lenny this weekend. To this, I say WOOT!! More »
Watch Benji Kiss Cam on the Kiss Cam
Three weeks ago, actress Cameron Diaz and rocker Benji Madden got themselves married. Last night, the newlyweds were in attendance at the LA Lakers basketball game at the Staples Center and got caught on the Kiss Cam. As you can see above, Benji looked really surprised that he and his new bride were being featured on the Kiss Cam but they immediately got down to the business of smooching for all the world to see. They are the cutest. Click the embed above and see for yourselves.
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?
