JENNIFER LOPEZ and SHAKIRA put on a great halftime show at the 2020 Super Bowl. But behind the scenes, things weren’t all that smooth. It turns out J-Lo didn’t want to share the spotlight. In the new Netflix documentary “Halftime”, she says, quote, “This was the worst idea in the world.” Then later she adds, quote, “This is something I have been working for and hoping for for years.” On top of that, the NFL only gave them 12 minutes. There’s a scene where Shakira expresses her concern about them having enough time. Her manager Benny Medina says, quote, “Typically, you have one headliner at a Super Bowl . . . It was an insult to say you needed two Latinas to do the job that one artist historically has done.” “Halftime” hits Netflix on Tuesday (LINK)

THE GRAMMYS are adding FIVE new categories. The Recording Academy also created a new award for best song for social change . . . it must be about a timely social issue and promote understanding and empathy. The new categories are Best Spoken Word Poetry Album . . . Alternative Music Performance . . . Americana Music Performance . . . Score Soundtrack for Video Games and Other Interactive Media . . . and Songwriter of the Year. Now most are self-explanatory, but Songwriter of the Year IS different than Song of the Year, which also recognizes songwriters. Eligible songwriters must also have written at least five songs where they are credited “solely” as a songwriter or co-writer. Quote, “Somebody who writes their own music and records it would not be eligible. They would have to be doing songs for others. We want to highlight the craft of writing songs professionally for artists” (LINK)

SNL’s Kenan Thompson will return to host the NHL Awards on ESPN on June 21st. The ceremony honoring the best in hockey will air live from City 2 (New York City or Tampa) of the 2022 Stanley Cup Final. Thompson said “Whether it’s the regular season or the Stanley Cup Playoffs, the NHL certainly knows how to put on a show and I’m honored to be a part of it again,. The playoffs have been so exciting.” A few NHL Award winners have already been announced, including Anze Kopitar, of the Los Angeles Kings, who won the Mark Messier NHL Leadership Award.
This has to be some type of record; Tool’s Maynard James Keenan has revealed that he recently battled COVID-19 for a FOURTH time! The singer told AZ Central he got it after Tool’s recent tour in Europe last month, joking “I got the European-flavored one.” Keenan’s a realist about his situation, though, saying “I mean, when you’re in a room full of thousands of people, it’s being passed around. You get into a tube and you fly 10 hours in a contained environment, you’re gonna get it. If somebody has it and you’re gonna get it, you can get it. That’s just the nature of what it is now. We need to embrace that and stop freaking the f*** out.” Keenan was hospitalized with COVID in 2020 and also suffered lung damage.

She tweeted, “Is putting me in a pack necessary family???????????????,” and “If I say I was hacked will y’all forgive me?? Tryna see what my options are here.”

LeBron James, whose net worth was recently put north of $1 billion by Forbes, has made it known for years that he plans to own an NBA team when he is finished playing.
Now that vision has a location. He said QUOTE “I want a team in Vegas and it’ll be sooner than later.” James, who is 37, will enter his 20th NBA season in the fall when Los Angeles Lakers training camp opens up. He would have to be finished playing before he could purchase a team, and he would have to figure out an ownership group to aid in the bid — the most recent NBA team to go on the market, the Minnesota Timberwolves, fetched $1.5 billion in 2021. James would also need the league to expand to Vegas. During his annual NBA Finals news conference last week, NBA commissioner Adam Silver said there are no current plans for expansion beyond the league’s 30 teams.

As has been widely reported, Bryson elected to join the LIV Golf Series. Effective immediately, Rocket Mortgage has ended its sponsorship agreement with Bryson.

Roughly 90 women, including four-time Olympic gold medalist Simone Biles, seek a settlement in excess of $1 billion from the FBI over its handling of the allegations against former USA Gymnastics team doctor Larry Nassar. The women say the FBI failed to act with the urgency to stop him after becoming aware of sexual assault allegations against him in 2015. Nassar, who was a doctor at Michigan State University, was not arrested until the fall of 2016 following an investigation by MSU police. Nassar was sentenced to up to 175 years in prison in 2018 for molesting seven young gymnasts and later received a sentence of up to 125 years on three further counts of criminal sexual conduct.
