One of DiC‘s favorites, Bruno Mars, was confirmed to be the Halftime act for Super Bowl XLVIII. The big game will be held on Feb 2nd at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey for the first time ever. The news was announced during the Fox NFL Sunday broadcast where Mars and his band joined the commentators to celebrate his big gig.
While fans were happy to hear the news, of course there were detractors who didn’t think he was the right performer to go with. Seeing as how the Super Bowl is being held in New Jersey for the first time, many felt that they should have gone with a hometown act like Bruce Springsteen or Bon Jovi. After the stellar, and flashy, performances from Madonna and Beyonce earlier this year, folks expected another pop singer to get the job.
For anyone who has any doubts that Bruno won’t be able to rock a crowd of that size for 9 minutes, he is currently on a sold out tour, and we can point to many a showstopping performance from this year’s awards shows alone. He has five months to prepare and we’re sure he’ll deliver. In the meantime, check out this Pepsi video featuring a clip of him dressed as Elvis!
Awwwjeez. Here we go. PETA’s all mad at Beyonce for wearing all kinds of leather for her Superbowl half-time get-up. Like she cares.
We would take a bet that if Beyoncé watched our video exposés, she’d probably not want to be seen again in anything made of snakes, lizards, rabbits or other animals who died painfully. Today’s fashions are trending toward humane vegan options, and Beyoncé’s Super Bowl outfit missed the mark on that score.
Beyonce’s publicist (via Queen Bey herself, no doubt) isn’t happy with some photos being posted from the half-time show. Apparently, they are “unflattering”? You don’t say?
Beyonce’s publicist Yvette Noel-Schure didn’t like any of those pictures and after a phone call with Buzzfeed, sent this email:
Thanks for my taking call. As discussed, there are some unflattering photos on your current feed that we are respectfully asking you to change. I am certain you will be able to find some better photos.
HAHAHAAAA! All that makes us want to do is look for every single photo of Beyonce that isn’t all that cute. I’m more interested in all of her nose jobs. Daaang, girl. Pretty soon you’ll be wearing a surgeon’s mask.
And cue The Illuminati gossip. (I’m a little scurrred.)
