Exclusive: How Patriots Owner, Robert Kraft, Felt About Katy Perry’s Dancing Sharks!

Published

This year’s Super Bowl halftime show would not have been the same without the two dancing sharks who busted hilarious dance moves along side Katy Perry during her performance of “California Gurls” and “Teenage Dream.”

The left shark particularly, identified as Bryan Gaw, wooed the audience with his ridiculous, off beat routine. And while most of the nation was enjoying the seemingly enjoyable show, New England Patriots’ owner Robert Kraft, was focused on more important things … like winning.

“To tell you the truth I was focusing on the game and some other things,” Kraft told HipHollywood exclusively while on the red carpet for Roc Nation’s pre-Grammy brunch. “I let lovely people like yourself focus on the halftime. We were doing some business.”

Hey … we had to ask. And good thing they were focused on business because they pulled out a sweet win. “We did our best, it worked out,” he told us. “You start the year and you have a 3% chance of doing it [winning] so when it works your way it’s pretty cool”

He added, “Our guys put in a lot of hard work, effort and overcame a lot adversities. We are flying high right now and we are going to enjoy it.”

Netflix’s ‘Step Sisters’ Is ‘Bring It On’ … But Way More Woke!

Published

Netflix is getting ready to “Bring It On” … in more ways than one. The streaming service’s new flick Step Sisters is reminiscent of the 90s dance film, but delves deeper into racial themes like cultural appropriation, tokenization and interracial dating.

In the film Megalyn Echikunwoke (Arrow) plays the president of a black sorority who is tasked with teaching one of the campus’ white sororities how to step for a charity competition. At first glimpse the film seems to be stepping into a can of worms — and had folks on Twitter up in arms, but the creators and cast told HipHollywood it isn’t about cultural appropriation but instead cultural exchange.

“There’s a strong political message, and there’s a lot of racial content,” said Nia Jervier. “But I think that the pill that may be difficult to swallow is dipped in honey, because it’s funny.”

What also helps is that producer/writers like Lena Waithe (Masters of None), Chuck Hayward (Dear White People) and Ben Cory Jones (Underground) are behind the project – so you know it’s woke.

“At the end of the day, Jamila the lead character in our minds she’s reaching over to show them a part of our culture. It doesn’t dilute our culture,” said Jones. ” And I love that we can take stepping and evolve that into issues of race and culture.”

Step Sisters begins streaming on Netflix January 20th.
