Marshawn Lynch Monster 24k headphones

Marshawn Lynch, running back for the new Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks, has been spotted rocking the brand new Monster 24k headphones. In fact, Lynch was even seen dancing with himself after the Super Bowl XLVIII win in the locker room following the big win. The Monster 24k is backordered and hard to find at the moment, so we thought it was cool that Lynch was rocking a pair in the wild. You can grab yourself a pair of the $280 headphones over on the Monster Web site.

Queen Latifah to Perform at Super Bowl

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Gossip, Performances, Hip-Hop & Rap,

Queen LatifahQueen Latifah will perform "America the Beautiful" at the Super Bowl.

The actress-and-singer has been enlisted to sing the patriotic tune during the pre-game show at the MetLife Stadium in New Jersey on February 2. According to the New York Daily News newspaper, opera singer Renee Fleming has been tapped to sing the National Anthem, with Bruno Mars and the Red Hot Chili Peppers taking to the stage for the halftime show.

This marks the second time Queen Latifah has sung the tune at the Super Bowl, initially performing to rapturous applause in 2010.

The 43-year-old star was born in Newark and raised in East Orange so her appearance will be all the more meaningful since she will be performing in her home state.


Eminem Demands $2 Million for Super Bowl Gig

EminemEminem reportedly refused to perform at a Super Bowl party unless he was paid $2 million.

The "Monster" rapper is said to have been approached to play a concert at the NFL Owners Party during Super Bowl week in 2014. According to TMZ, the offer was for Eminem to perform a set of his greatest hits for 1,500 guests following a lavish dinner, but organizers were forced to find a replacement act after the rapper demanded the hefty fee.

Reps for the event were also eyeing a performance from Kanye West only to find that his fee was also out of budget. "[For Kanye] it was $1 million, plus a lot of other perks," a source revealed.

As a last resort organizers have reportedly snapped up "Tight Rope" singer Janelle Monae who will perform for a more reasonable $150,000.

An official announcement is expected to be made in New York's Times Square as early as tomorrow.

This will mark the first time Bruno has appeared at the Super Bowl and it was originally thought that New Jersey natives Bon Jovi would be asked to perform. Super Bowl performances usually feature a number of special guests but it is not yet known who will join Bruno on stage.

Beyonce Knowles performed at this year's event in New Orleans and was joined on stage by her former Destiny's Child band members, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams.

Nicki Minaj and Madonna

The "Starships" rapper joined the 53-year-old singer on stage at the event in February and while the pair locked lips, Nicki, 29, insists she had didn't plan it: "You can't really call it making out. She kissed me but I didn't kiss her back. I wasn't expecting it and I was shocked like everyone else. I was shaking and thinking, 'Is this really happening, why is she doing this?' It was the strangest thing ... she had very soft lips."

Chevy calls out Ford in Super Bowl ad

Posted by Andrey Malskiy Categories: Transportation, Videos,

Last week we showed you a few sneak peaks at Super Bowl ads focused on cars. Now that the Big Game is over, we wanted to hand it to Chevy GM for making a commercial worth viewing.

The spot takes place in a post-apocalyptic world. The Chevy rises from the ashes, unscathed, and drives away. The end of the commercial is what made us laugh. Chevy had the guts to take a blatant stab at Ford. Though that’s a ballsy move on its behalf, I’d suggest they take a closer look at the competition before calling them out. I’d like to draw your attention to the Ford video below. You can watch a Chevy drive away from a CGI apocalyptic hell, or you can watch a Ford drive away after being tossed around in a hurricane. You be the judge.

Lexus GS growing into a family of vehicles

Posted by Andrey Malskiy Categories: Transportation, Videos,

Along with the likes of Volkswagen, Honda, and Cadillac, Lexus is heading to the Super Bowl. The Lexus ad features the newly redesigned GS series, which is aimed to compete with the BMW 5 Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class; to which we say good luck. That said, the new redesign is rather sexy.

The commercial (which can be seen after the jump) is rather sci-fi-ish and features the GS locked in a container. The Lexus eventually breaks free, and at the end of the commercial there are four container boxes lit up while the narrator states, “this is just the beginning.”

This leads us to ask the question ‘what next up from Lexus?’ Toyota recently expanded its Prius family, which led us to believe the GS family will be expecting new additions. Lexus announced on its website that there will be a hybrid option along with an F-tuned option (which is geared to compete with the BMW M5.) This being so only accounts for three containers of mystery, that is if you include the GS 350 apart of the four. So what remains to be answered is what will be the forth family member in the GS line-up?

Acura, Cadillac, Honda, and Volkswagen Super Bowl commercial sneak peeks

Posted by Andrey Malskiy Categories: Transportation, Videos,

It’s that time of the year where we can freely get down on junk food, trash talk, and look forward to the commercials just as much as the big game. We're talking about the Super Bowl (oh, and don't forget to enter our Big Game Giveaway!) Each year millions upon millions are dumped on commercials for mere marketing purposes.

Without a doubt, Volkswagen had one of the most successful commercials last year (see video after the jump to jog your memory) and is aiming to repeat its success again this year staying with the Star Wars theme. However, Volkswagen is not the only one fighting for airtime during the big game. Honda, Acura, and Cadillac have aired their Super Bowl commercials early this year and I want to focus your attention on the creativity of the ads.

Manufacturers know that millions will be watching the game on the 5th, and one would think that they would put effort into creating an entertaining commercial. Well one would think, but that’s not always the case. Let’s take a look at the Cadillac ATS spot, above.
