JAY Z OPENS UP ABOUT HIS NFL PARTNERSHIP – (02/03/2020)
In a new interview with The New York Times, Jay Z defended his partnership with the NFL — which many saw as a betrayal of Colin Kaepernick. He said, “No one is saying he hasn’t been done wrong. He was done wrong. I would understand if it was three months ago. But it was three years ago and someone needs to say, ‘What do we do now — because people are still dying?’” He added, “We didn’t say, ‘Let’s go make some money off the NFL.’”
He then said about Kap, “We are two adult men who disagree on the tactic but are marching for the same cause.”
On the criticism he faced for the move, he said, “As long as real people are being hurt and marginalized and losing family members, then yes, I can take a couple rounds of negative press.”
Jay Z also addressed why he turned down the opportunity to perform at the halftime show during the Superbowl. He said that the NFL wanted him to bring out special guests Kanye West and Rihanna. He explained, “Of course I would have, but I said, ‘No, you get me.’ That is not how you go about it, telling someone that they’re going to do the halftime show contingent on who they bring. I said forget it. It was a principle thing.”
Meanwhile, despite his partnership with the NFL, Jay Z, wife Beyonce and daughter Blue Ivy were spotted sitting during the National Anthem.
JESSICA BIEL PRAISES JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE POST PDA-FLAP – (02/03/2020)
It looks like Jessica Biel and husband Justin Timberlake are doing just fine thanks, after a PDA scandal appeared to rock their foundation.
As fans will recall, Timberlake was photographed getting handsy with his Palmer co-star Alisha Wainwright in New Orleans. After photos of them emerged online, Timberlake issued an apology, blaming it on alcohol and bad judgment, and Biel flew from L.A. to New Orleans for some QT. (Wainwright reportedly vacated the city for the pair’s reunion).
But it seems in the two months since the incident, Biel has let bygones be bygones. She paid tribute to him on Instagram for his 39th birthday, writing: “Happy birthday to the most timeless man I know. You somehow grow up without growing old. We love you so much.”
Timberlake and Biel married in 2012 and share a 4-year-old son, Silas.

PAMELA ANDERSON & JON PETERSON SPLIT 12 DAYS AFTER MARRIAGE: Pamela Anderson and Jon Peters have parted ways less than two weeks after their secret wedding. In a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, the 52-year-old said: “I have been moved by the warm reception to Jon and my union. We would be very grateful for your support as we take some time apart to re-evaluate what we want from life and from one another. Life is a journey and love is a process. With that universal truth in mind, we have mutually decided to put off the formalization of our marriage certificate and put our faith in the process. Thank you for respecting our privacy.” They first met in the 1980s at the Playboy Mansion, and briefly dated, but parted ways. Anderson was previously married four times (twice to Rick Solomon).
‘1917’ RULES THE ‘BAFTA FILM AWARDS’ – (02/03/2020)
Sir Sam Mendes’ 1917 won big at the BAFTA Film Awards Sunday night. In all, the World War I film nabbed seven awards, including Best Film, Best British Film, Best Director and Best Cinematography. Mendes is the first British winner of Best Director since Danny Boyle won for Slumdog Millionaire in 2009.
Joker won three, including Best Actor for Joaquin Phoenix, while Renee Zellweger won Best Actress of her role in Judy.
Parasite picked up two biggies: Best Original Screenplay and Best Film Not in the English Language.
Mendes told the BBC: “I couldn’t be more thrilled. There’s the personal delight in seeing a story very close to me and my family be developed and enlarged but the massive thing has been audiences going in large numbers. None of us knew if an audience would turn up, it wasn’t certain at all. It’s coincided with awards season and the fact this is still number one in the UK after four weeks, [the awards have] really alerted people to the fact the movie is on, it rarely happens like that.”
Other winners included Brad Pitt for Best Supporting Actor in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and Laura Dern as Best Supporting Actress in Marriage Story.
The BAFTAs were the last major awards show pre-Oscars on Sunday. Zellweger, Phoenix, Dern and Pitt have triumphed in their categories at every major ceremony, making them, observers believe, a shoe-in at the Oscars.
