Marshawn Lynch made headlines on Tuesday afternoon after delivering a new, epic response for Super Bowl media day. “I’m here so I won’t get fined,” the Seattle Seahawks star told reporters as they bombarded him with questions. But two people getting more than just the same answer to every question, Entertainment Tonight’s Kevin Frazier and singer, Michelle Williams.
Frazier tells HipHollywood exclusively that after Lynch ditched the podium 4 minutes and 51 seconds into the press conference, he and Michelle followed him backstage where the running back was more than happy to talk. “He was backstage with Deion Sanders and he was in a great mood,” Frazier tells us. “Michelle did the interview and he adores her.”
Kevin tells us that Lynch was mainly focused on publicizing his Fam 1st Family Foundation, which is to help improve the lives of kids by mentoring them on the importance of education, literacy and self-esteem.
Frazier posted this photo on Instagram of the Destiny’s Child singer chatting with Marshawn with the caption:
“So #MarshawnLynch didn’t want to talk to the media at Super Bowl Media but he wanted to talk to us!!! #etnow#superbowl.”
Earlier this year, Lynch was fined $50,000 for avoiding the media following a game against Kansas City. So to avoid having to cough up more money, he has made the effort to chat with reporters, but here’s the catch: The running back delivers the same answer, regardless of the question. “I’m thankful” and “yeah” are just some of the responses given this season.
During last year’s Super Bowl media day, the running back responded to all questions with, “I’m just ’bout that action, Boss.” Because of Lynch’s ongoing tussle with the media, the NFL threatened to fine him a whopping $500,000 if he didn’t show his face on media day this year.
The Seahawks will take on the New England Patriots on Sunday at 3:30 p.m.
Top Five Moments From The 2018 SAG Awards
Celebrities filled the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles on Sunday night for the 2018 Screen Actors Guild Awards and the night was full of great moments. Here are the top highlights from the show.
It was a big night for Sterling K. Brown who made history after becoming the first Black actor to win the category for Outstanding Performance by a Male in a Drama Series. Brown not only took home the award for his role on NBC’s This Is Us, but he also received a second SAG award for Best Ensemble.
Morgan Freeman was the recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award, making a seemingly short and awkward speech. While receiving the honor, he called out an audience member for talking.
“Hey … I’m talking to you. Yeah, hey,” the 80-year-old said. “Okay, well you just stand out to me. That’s all.” Freeman then explained, “These moments in one’s life usually will call for an entire litany of thank yous.”
And we’ve said it before and we will say it again, Olivia Munn and Niecy Nash need their own show. The pair provided comedic relief yet again while announcing the award for Outstanding Performance by a Male in a Drama Series.
When discussing who gets to announce the winner, Nash explained she gets to say Sterling’s name if he when’s because “he’s Black.” She did however explain Munn “can say anyone who is Asian who is nominated.”
