In case you’ve been too caught up in Beyonce’s pregnancy announcement to remember — Super Bowl is this weekend. So in the off chance you have no idea what’s happening on Sunday for the main event, we got you covered. Here’s everything you need to know about the big game.
WHO: The New England Patriots will take on the Atlanta Falcons at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas.
WHEN: Super Bowl LI will be on Sunday, February 5, 3:30 p.m. on Fox.
PERFORMANCES: Coming on the heels of last year’s National Anthem, Lady Gaga will take center field for the big halftime show alongside legendary singer Tony Bennett. “The thing is, is it’s such a big world stage in terms of how many people see it and it’s been done so many times,” Gaga said during a recent press conference. “I think the challenge is to look at it and say, ‘What can I do differently, how can I elevate certain little things here and there and also make it about the music?'”
Singing the National Anthem will be country star Luke Bryan.
WILL BEYONCE JOIN GAGA?: Now on to more important things: Will Beyonce join Gaga on stage? There were rumors circulating that Beyonce was going to collaborate with the singer given Houston is Bey’s hometown. We also can’t forget that pair has worked together before on two major tracks,”Telephone” and “Video Phone.”
Also, given the recent string of announcements by Bey, it would make sense. Earlier this week, the 35-year-old announced that she is expecting twins and on Thursday, it was confirmed that the singer will be performing at the Grammy Awards later this month. And … it was just last year that the singer delivered her controversial “Formation” performance during the 2016 Super Bowl halftime show.
Unfortunately, Gaga shut down the rumors during a press conference, suggesting, “She’s always very inspiring and gives great advice, she’s a very focused and genuine performer.”
COMMERCIALS: During the game, expect to see commercials by Snickers, Intel, Buffalo Wild Wings, Squarespace, Lexus, Skittles and Avocados. A series of the visuals have already been leaked so for a quick preview, see below.
Cocktails & Coins! Inside Aisha Tyler’s Wild Life After Divorce & Departure From ‘The Talk’
Aisha Tyler went through a few MAJOR life changes over the past two years and now, the actress is back on top living life to the fullest.
In 2016, Tyler’s college love and husband of 20 years, Jeff Tietjens, filed for divorce from the actress. As if that weren’t an emotional challenge to overcome, Tyler was then ordered to pay Tietjens $31,250 a month in spousal support for the next four years, plus a lump sum of $500k.
Following the emotional split, Tyler’s career then took a big turn when she walked away from CBS’s The Talk. Just eight months ago, the actress left the show to pursue other passions. “I also have three other series (Criminal Minds, hosting Whose Line Is It Anyway? and voicing a character on Archer),” the actress said during the big announcement. “People always go, ‘How do you do all that?’ And I don’t always have an answer.”
While it might sound like Tyler’s woes and 360 of a life might seem completely damaging, it all turned for the better. “The unknown can be very compelling and can be interesting. Instead of thinking about it as change, think about it as dynamism,” she told HipHollywood during the screening of Dwyane Wade’s, Shot in the Dark.
She explained, “You can’t stay the same, your life can’t stay the same. Staying the same is staying in place and staying in place is dying slowly. For me, I always reminded myself I’m not always going to feel this way, it’s not always going to be this tuff.”
“You cannot get through this experience on this planet without a little bit of pain and you need to know that and see that it’s temporary,” Aisha said. “My life is so interesting now and it wouldn’t have been without going through the stuff that I’ve been through. It’s been good for me; all this change.”
The actress is not only the star of some major network shows, but she also is about to launch her new cocktail line, Courage and Stone. “It’s been a really really exciting process,” she told us. “It really came out of my love of cocktails, my love of going to great bars and then going home and being like ‘I don’t know how to do all this.'”
Tyler then admitted that she was a whiskey girl at heart and that when she left the Talk “Julie Chen put me in a whiskey of the month club. She she’s doubled my collection in the last couple of months.”
Set to releae late spring early summer 2018.
