4 Reasons Why Madonna Is The Perfect Choice For The Super Bowl Half-Time Show

In case you’re above following these sorts of things, Her Madgesty has been all over the news, the blogs, and the tabloids again lately. There was September’s much-disparaged hydrangeas incident. Critics’ chilly reception to her new movie, “W.E.” The “narcissistic” acceptance speech she gave upon receiving a Golden Globe award for best original song (beating out rival Elton John, who…

Meet The 2012 Puppy Bowl Starting Lineup!

So, Feb. 5 is the Super Bowl, which means the Puppy Bowl will also roll into town the same day for those of us who care way more about cute pups than pigskins. The annual festival of wagging tales and furry faces kicks off on the Animal Planet on Sunday Feb. 5 at 3 p.m.

Graphic Ads Of Bloody, Aborted Fetuses Could Air During The Super Bowl

Anti-abortion extremists ruin everything — and not just what should have been a visit to Planned Parenthood for a super-fun Pap smear.

Forty cities across the United States could air graphic anti-choice commercials depicting bloody, aborted fetuses during pigskin’s holiest of days, the Super Bowl. The ads would be paid for by Randall…

Bro-Tastic GoDaddy Commercial Might Actually Air During Super Bowl This Year

For the first time in eight years, the network hosting the Super Bowl has actually accepted the preliminary script for GoDaddy.com’s bro-tastic commercial pitches. Six racy “Internet only” commercials later — including one rejected commercial with a “beaver” entrendre — I’m still trying to align my neck after all of that strategic screen blocking. GoDaddy certainly…

Fergie Understands Christina Aguilera’s Lyric Mix-Up

“I completely understand. [Christina is] one of the best singers of our time. Nobody can take that away. But you get nervous at these things. We’re human. It’s such a huge venue, your nerves take a hold of you.”
Fergie defends Christina Aguilera’s much-maligned National Anthem lyric snafu at the Super Bowl. Wait, does that…

“Glee” Thrills Us With “Thriller”

Sometimes when “Glee” goes off the air for a little while, I convince myself that I am over its saccharine song and dance numbers. But it never happens—once I watch again, BAM! I am instantly re-hooked. That’s what happened last night when I begrudgingly watched the show’s much-hyped return after the Super Bowl. The…

The Daily Ovulation: Meet The Cutie Underneath Mini Darth Vader’s Mask

I gotta admit, I was kind of hoping that a little girl was beneath the mini Darth Vader costume in the Volkswagon Passat commercial that aired during the Super Bowl. It would just have been rad to find out the little badass was female, but alas, it was not meant to be. On “Today,”…

And The Super Bowl Hair MVP Goes To…

I love football. But sometimes, when watching games, I find myself thinking really girly thoughts that I try to keep to myself, lest I make every guy in the room roll their eyes. Two from last night’s Super Bowl: first, the Green Bay Packers and Pittsburgh Steelers have really similar uniform pants, only Green Bay’…

Snoop Dogg’s Cold Diss On A Flasher

“Girl, those so new they probably still got a price tag on ‘em.”
Snoop Dogg’s totally unexpected, but awesome, reaction to a woman who flashed him while he was playing a post-Super Bowl party last night. Ladies, can we stop showing our boobs to dudes just because they’re on a stage? It’s not cute. [NY

What Did You Think Of The Black Eyed Peas’ Super Bowl Halftime Show?

After the first half of last night’s Super Bowl was done — and congrats to the Green Bay Packers, the least rapey team on the field last night, for their win — TRON took over for the halftime show. I mean, the Black Eyed Peas. Slash from Guns ‘N’ Roses showed up too –…

Christina Aguilera Flubs The National Anthem

Last night, Christina Aguilera sang the National Anthem at the Super Bowl. Doesn’t she sound amazing? Too bad she messed up the lyrics. Instead of singing “O’er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming,” she sang “What so proudly we watched at the twilight’s last gleaming.” Close enough?

The Weirdest Super Bowl Halftime Show Ever

I did not grow up in a football-loving family (we went to political rallies on Sundays instead), so the Super Bowl has never meant a whole heck of a lot to me. But since I became an adult, I’ve starting tuning into the big game for three obvious reasons: 1) I like the food…

The Hellcats Address The Lack Of Cheerleaders At The Super Bowl

Ashley Tisdale and Aly Michalka of The CW series “Hellcats” were very concerned at yesterday’s revelation that there will be no cheerleaders at this Sunday’s Super Bowl game for the first time in 45 years, since neither the Green Bay Packers nor the Pittsburgh Steelers have them. And so they made a pretty adorable…

This Year’s Super Bowl Will Be A Cheerleader-Free Zone

There will be something missing during Sunday night’s Super Bowl—something that’s been a part of football’s biggest event for the past 45 years. Cheerleaders! Apparently, neither the Green Bay Packers or the Pittsburgh Steelers have them—the Steelers sent their cheerleaders packing in 1970 and Green Bay got rid of their pom-pom shakers in 1988. And…

PETA Wants To Run Commercial Of Hot Girls Fellating Vegetables During the Super Bowl

You work that carrot, baby! In 2009, PETA was willing to pay millions to run a commercial during the Super Bowl of scantily clad women making out with vegetables. The networks declined to air “Veggie Love” — think of the children! — but now PETA is trying again with an “outtakes” video. Once agai…

Oprah Awkwardly Attacks Drew Brees’ Face

Oh, Oprah. Last week she invited New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees on her show. If you’ve seen him at least once sans helmet, you know that he has a birthmark by his eye. Oprah, apparently had no idea. Watch above as she says, “Who just kissed you? There’s a big old smudge right…

A Woman’s Take On The Super Bowl’s “Man’s Last Stand” Dodge Commercial

As we all know, the theme of this year’s Super Bowl commercials (lovingly curated in a slideshow by Amelia) was OH NOES! WOMEN ARE EMASCULATING THE MENFOLK!

Dodge Chargers’ ad about “Man’s Last Stand,” in particular, had a lot of critics rolling their eyes for the way it depicted modern dude…
