The Super Bowl is the only event in the world where you want to sit around for the adverts, and it seems this year will be no different. A teaser for the forthcoming Mountain Dew and Doritos commercial has been unveiled starring the likes of Morgan Freeman and Missy Elliott.

Also, he’s asking that the local authorities replace it with a statue of Missy ‘Misdemeanour’ Elliott, the award-winning rapper and producer, as she was born in Portsmouth.

LIL' KIM joins honorees at the 2016 VH1 Hip-Hop Honors
Leading this year's honorees at Manhattan's Lincoln Center was Queen Latifah who performed 'U.N.I.T.Y.' and tried to focus all attention on the issues in the press recently regarding racism, police brutality and Black Lives Matter. 'We all know that the world and our world is really tense right now', she said. 'It's a lot of tension. It's a lot of angst. It's a lot of hurt. A lot of pain. I'm hoping that we can somehow manage to channel all of these emotions that we have in a positive way and really do something to change our world.'

The Super Bowl is possibly the most anticipated and well-known sporting event of every year; a game of American Football, set to decide the National Football League champion team for that season. On 1st February 2014, the New England Patriots fought the Seattle Seahawks for the title, in a game that saw Quarterback Tom Brady win his fourth Super Bowl and third Super Bowl MVP award. In the end, the New England Patriots won the game with 28, against the Seattle Seahawks 24.

With the Super Bowl being such a loved sporting event, it should be no surprise that a whole host of celebrities made an appearance at the show to watch their favourite teams. Amongst those in attendance were Snoop Dog, John Legend, Chrissy Teigen, Chris Pratt, Anna Faris and many more.

Missy Elliott will be joining Katy Perry and Lenny Kravitz on stage during the Super Bowl half-time show, according to a source speaking to the Associated Press. 43-year-old Elliott will be a "surprise guest" at the big game's entertainment on Sunday (1st February). The source, someone "familiar with the plans" for the entertainment, claimed Elliott will be performing alongside Perry during one of her songs. Elliott has previously worked with Perry on a remix of 'Last Friday Night T.G.I.F.' but it is uncertain which track she will feature on at the half time show.

The cast of the film is shaping up.
Lifetime’s Aaliyah biopic is moving full-speed ahead after the announcement of the lead actress. Despite lack of support from the family, the film will be made without any delays. According to The Hollywood Reporter, two more roles in the film have been cast – and they’re pretty big ones too.
Lifetime has followed its established practice of hiring relative unknowns and chosen Chattrisse Dolabaille and Izaak Smith for the roles of Aaliyah’s collaborators Missy Elliott and Timbaland. The rappers/producers were instrumental in helping Aaliyah’s career. They worked closely with the singer on her 1996 album One in a Million and she had practically become their protégé by the time her self-titled sophomore album was released in 2001. Aaliyah tragically and infamously died in a plane crash later that same year.

Somehow the people at Universal Pictures got it into their heads that easy-on-the-eyes, thin-on-talent Jessica Alba (star of Fox's short-lived "Dark Angel") should be a movie star.
So apparently a room full of monkeys was recruited to write "Honey," a laughable follow-your-dreams disaster in which the actress plays a sprightly, adorably indomitable, J.Lo-inspired babe from the Bronx who becomes a music-video dance choreographer, turns down a director's demand for sex, gets black-listed, then realizes what's really important in life is opening a neighborhood dance studio for street kids.
Trite and graceless, it's supposed to be the story of the girl's struggle to make it in showbiz, but no sooner does she point at a TV and say, "Check it. That's what I'm talkin' about. I should be dancing in videos like this!" than a video director (David Moscow) sees her shaking her stuff in a club and offers her a job.
