The controversy surrouding Superbowl LIII’s Halftime Show continues to heat up! As you may already know, Travis Scott, has been tapped to perform alongside Maroon 5 for next year’s festivities set in Atlanta. This is an unpopular move as the NFL’s ongoing decision to blackball Colin Kaepernick, and punish players who kneel in protest, has had a few Black artists (like Rihanna) opt out of performing. Jay-Z is flexing his influence and allegedly trying to dissuade Travis from performing in the Halftime Show!

Two sources also tell Variety that Jay-Z — who has been highly critical of the NFL over its treatment of former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick — is attempting to talk Scott out of performing, although reps either declined comment or could not immediately be reached.

We definitely understand that performing during the Superbowl Halftime Show is huge, but there is just so much controversy surrounding the NFL and its unpopular stance on Colin Kaepernick and players who kneel. America is allegedly a place of free speech with the right to peacefully protest. Travis Scott may have Kylie Jenner on his arm, but he should never cut himself from his fan base.

What do you guys think? Can Jay-Z talk him out of it? Should he? Sound off in our comments section below!

The college cheating scandal that encompasses dozens of top tier institutes of higher learning and has gotten actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin has been front page news this week.

“I went to a good school,” Legend told ET at the iHeartRadio Music Awards Thursday. “I think it’s a longer conversation because I think a lot of people look at this rightly as fraudulent and dishonest.”

“But the bottom line is, the system has been rigged for wealthy people for a long time,” he continued. “The admissions system rewards people’s parents being wealthy and people’s parents having gone to a certain school. There’s a lot of legal ways to do that that still aren’t really that fair to a lot of other people.”

Legend’s very serious and thoughtful remarks on the admissions scam follow his wife’s reaction from a few days earlier; in contrast to her husband, Teigen poked fun at the whole thing by photoshopping their heads onto those of athletes.

It is no secret or surprise to us that the wealthy and elite have been able to go off the radar, or do something illegal, to procure opportunities for their children. Honestly, I am surprised more celebrities were not caught up in this scandal. We are sure this scandal is still unfolding.  We will keep you up to date on the details as they become available!

Suicide is definitely nothing to scoff at and we are just glad to hear from Paris that she is doing well. As for these hecklers trying to get her to answer for her father’s allegations we have to say that the daughter will not suffer for the sins of the father. Whether Michael Jackson molested those young men is truly up to interpretation; and with his demise, it is now a moot point.
