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.
Watch: Halle Berry Issues Whiskey Challenge During ‘Kingsman’ Interview
Halle Berry proved she could hang with the fellas when she downed a glass of whiskey at Comic Con alongside her Kingsman: The Golden Circle co-stars. But don’t expect her to do that again.
“No more, no more,” she said after hilariously bolting from the room when we asked her if she’d drink another glass. “I will never [do it again], and no one lets me live down the fact that I did it either.”
According to Berry she was ill for three days after, but that didn’t stop her and Pedro Pascal from daring me to throw back a glass right before our interview.
Not one to turn down a challenge, I did it, and received a round of applause and high fives before preceding to discuss the duo’s roles and why they decided to join the cast of Kingsman.
“Matthew Vaughn’s version of these movies always interested me” explained Berry who is no stranger to spy flicks after starring in the James Bond film Die Another Day. “I was apart of the Bond series and I feel like this is similar but it’s also for the new generation.”
She continued, “Some of the elements are the same but I call it spy thriller 2.0, he takes it to the next level that no one else does right now.”
In the film Berry, Pascal, Jeff Bridges and Channing Tatum play members of the Statesmen – a U.S. Spy agency operating out of a Kentucky Bourbon distillery. Pascal told us he gained a newfound appreciation for men in suits, but still prefers his jeans.
“I play agent whiskey. I’m a southern gentlemen so I’m a little more buttoned up … I’m like the stateside version of those square pegs from across the pond,” he joked.
