Katy Perry to Welcome Lenny Kravitz as Super Bowl Halftime Guest

Looks like Katy Perry will indeed have a special guest with her when she plays halftime at the Super Bowl in February, but it won't be Pharrell Williams as rumored.  Instead, Katy will welcome Lenny Kravitz to the stage. The NFL tweeted, "Joining @KatyPerry during her @pepsi @superbowl #halftime show on @SNFonNBC? Mr @LennyKravitz. Feb 1 can’t come soon enough!" Lenny will presumably lend a bit of a rock edge to what will no doubt be a pure pop extravaganza, which will take place in Glendale, Arizona on February 1.  And in recent years, it's become popular for the Super…

It's not a stretch to say the most anticipated album of 2015 is Adele's next disc, though nobody has any idea when it's coming out, what it'll sound like, and whose collaborations made it onto the final product.  Even her longtime producer claims he's in the dark about it. Speaking to Billboard, songwriter and producer Paul Epworth, who won four Grammys for his work on Adele's worldwide smash 21, says, "I've got nothing.

I’m going to be honest with you, it was the most dirty I’ve ever been in my whole entire life.” The video courted controversy after some viewers complained it had overtones of pedophilia.…

Lance Bass Says It Was His Fault Justin Timberlake Wasn't at His Wedding

There’s a perfectly reasonable explanation why Justin Timberlake wasn’t at Lance Bass’ December wedding, and it has nothing to do with Justin allegedly snubbing Lance.
