Sunday’s Super Bowl became the most watched TV event of the year (Even though we are only a month into the year). The game became the 10th most watched super bowl in super bowl history. It generated a total audience of 102mil!! But 330mil people live in America so it poses the question…what were the other 228mil people doing on Sunday?! Riley Green is getting some heat from some fans and even people in the music business for a tweet that he made during halftime. It stated “great game..but can I get somebody to translate this super bowl halftime show so I know what they are singing about?”Some think the comment was insensitive and racist, including country singer, Mickey Guyton who said “I’m at a loss for words. Do better people. Step outside of yourself for a second and do better. This isn’t the first time Riley has been called out for racist remarks. His song “Bury me in Dixie” contained the lyric “I wish Robert E. Lee would come and take a bow.”
Lori Loughlin and her husband have reportedly put their Bel-Air mansion up for sale. The couple bought the house in 2015 for $13.9mil and they are asking $28mil for it. I know the economy was doing well, but have the prices of these kind of mansions gone up THIS much? No one knows if the timing of the college admissions scandal played a role in the listing, but it looks like they tried putting the same house on the market in 2017 for $35mil.
Shakira…I have to apologize because when I heard she was going to be the performer for halftime I thought “she hasn’t had a hit in 10 years!” but I was wrong, I knew like every song! She’s estimated to be worth about $300mil and made her money through her music, six tours (and he most recent one grossed $40.7mil). In 2008 she signed a $300mil deal with entertainment company Live Nation and she was a judge on NBC’s the voice in 2013 for two seasons, Which she got paid $12mil each season. To top it off, she is one of the top-selling artists in digital sales and album sales according to the recording industry association of america.
After 9 years together, FGL has parted ways with their managers, Seth England and Kevin Zaruk. They’ve been with them and Big Loud Management since 2011. They gave out a statement saying “It has been an incredible journey with our Big Loud family and we are so thankful for the last nine years. Together we’ve grown more than we could ever have imagined due to what we all bring to the table. As we continue to evolve, so do our needs and our team.” They seem to have broken it off on good terms because the management company also released a positive statement. As of right now it’s unclear who will manage the duo.
