A Tampa reporter may have sensationalized a report about police officers refusing to work at an upcoming Beyoncé concert because of the singer’s alleged anti-police presentation during Super Bowl 50’s halftime performance.

According to Crystal Clark, no officers have signed up to work security for the April 29th concert, which according to her, presents a huge security risk. “Typically, officers who are off-duty agree to work concerts and sporting events at the venue for extra income, but none have signed up to work security for Beyonce’s upcoming concert on April 29 at Raymond James Stadium,” Clark writes in an article for a local Fox affiliate.

The Tampa police department has already shot down the report, telling HipHollywood it is incorrect. “[The reporter] never asked us. Dozens of people have signed up for the event. [The story] has an agenda to get clicks,” Andrea Davis, a spokesman for the police department tells us. Davis adds that the city recently hosted a monster truck rally that wasn’t staffed until a week before taking place.

Tampa Police Department spokesperson Steve Hegarty also told Clarke in her report that the event would by staffed by police officers because they “have a responsibility to do that regardless of how controversial it might be, who the artist might be, or the politician might be. This is a couple of months away, so we’ve still got plenty of time to fill those slots.”

Michael Rapaport Calls Himself The “MVP Of Talking Trash” Following Janet Jackson Controversy

Michael Rapaport came under fire earlier this month for slamming Janet Jackson Appreciation Day which was on Super Bowl Sunday. But now, he is speaking a slightly different tune.

On February 4th, as Janet fans used social media to praise the singer, Michael took to Twitter to do what he does best: Talk mess.

“Can anybody crying for Janet Jackson right now tell me the last Janet Jackson song that was popping,” he wrote. “Motherf*cka’s wanna make nothing something 24/7/365 & Super Bowl Sunday.”

Michael, however, is slightly backing down from his aggressive words. HipHollywood caught up with the actor during the premier of Shot In The Dark, to discuss not only his ability to talk “sh*t,” but being attacked by Black Twitter.

“I love Janet Jackson, respect Janet Jackson,” he told us exclusively. “The context of what I said is that Janet Jackson isn’t popping now like she was popping in the 80’s, 90’s. Doesn’t mean she’s not an icon.”

Rapaport, who is known to stir up on some drama with his Twitter antics, then added about being a sh*t talker: “I’m proud of the way I talk sh*t, I’m the MVP of talking trash. I can give it as good as I can take it.”
