Extra! TV host Mario Lopez lost a Super Bowl bet to co-host Maria Menounos, and as a result he was forced to strip down to his underwear and run through The Grove shopping complex. It’s only fair; last year Menounos lost a bet and she had to strip down to her bikini in 40-degree temperature in Times Square on national TV.

Alicia Keys made the right decision to scrap her idea of drastically changing the lyrics to the National Anthem at the Super Bowl. But Keys still can’t win. Now she is being roundly criticized for sitting down at a piano while singing the National Anthem. She should have known better, say historians who prefer singers to stand upright and proud while singing the Star Spangled Banner.
I realize that at age 14, Will Smith’s son Jaden is a child on the verge of entering manhood; but he’s wearing lip gloss on his lips, which makes him fodder for the blogs.

In an attempt to silence her critics, Beyonce performed the National Anthem live at a scheduled press conference at the Superdome in New Orleans today. The impromptu performance wasn’t as spectacular as her pre-recorded lip-sync fiasco at President Obama’s Inauguration. But Beyonce did manage to draw a smattering of applause when she was done.
Once again a celebrity has been forced to apologize for expressing his opinion on the subject of homosexuality.
Yesterday, San Francisco 49ers cornerback Chris Culliver, 25, caused a national furor when he said something to the effect that gay NFL players were not welcomed in the san Francisco 49ers locker room.
Scroll down for updates…
If you didn’t know who Chris Culliver was before today, you will be very familiar with him by tomorrow. That is because the gays are coming for his neck after what the San Francisco 49ers cornerback had to say about gays in the NFL.
I had to ask because some people are crying racism after viewing this Volkswagen Super Bowl ad. The ad features a Caucasian office worker from Minnesota who is so happy with his new Volkswagen that he spreads joy to his co-workers by speaking with a Jamaican accent.
The first person who came to mind when I watched the ad was native New Yorker Bobby McFerrin, who sang his saccharine 80s hit song, “Don’t Worry, Be Happy”, with a Jamaican accent.
The only people who take offense at this commercial are the ones who don’t know that Caucasian Jamaicans exist, or miserable people who are constantly on the lookout for an axe to grind. Such as New York Times writer Charles Blow who calls the ad “blackface with voices.” Come on, lighten up Mr. Blow.
