J-Lo Rubs Crotch, Dances on Stripper Pole…

The performer also appeared to invoke the crucifix

In an already sex-charged Super Bowl half-time performance, JLo took it up a notch, rubbing her crotch area and then performing on a stripper pole.

The dance came during early into her four-song medley, while performing “Waiting for Tonight.” JLo slid across the stage, toward an awaiting camera, while moving her fingers across her crotch area. A stripper pole was then erected on stage, and JLo danced above her backup dancers. 

At one point during the pole dance, JLo’s arms extended in what appeared to be a reference to the crucifix:

Comments about the sexualized nature of the Super Bowl performance began during Shakira’s opening act. 

Fox News’ Raymond Arroyo tweeted: “My 16 year old just now: ‘The #Superbowl is the only time of the year when it is socially acceptable to watch half-naked women with your family.’ #PepsiHalftime #theseKidsDontLie”

Arroyo, who appears in a weekly culture segment on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle,” followed up: “We went from Ella Fitzgerald to J-Lo on a pole. And this is cultural growth? #PepsiHalftime”

The website Breitbart compiled the most sexualized moment from the half-time show in the montage below:

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — They were celebrating the passage of time as much as football at this Super Bowl: 100-year-old war veterans at midfield for the pregame coin flip, a 50-years-young pop diva handling halftime, and, of course, a quarterback who turns 25 this year saving the best part of the show for last.

That quarterback is Patrick Mahomes of the Kansas City Chiefs.

It is easy, especially after the improbable, blink-and-you-miss-it escape act he engineered to win the title Sunday, to say Mahomes — a mobile, dual threat with a rocket arm — is what the perfect quarterback will look like as the NFL gets ready to embark on its second century of football next season.

But what Mahomes did on a cool, crisp evening in South Florida was grounded in the most basic of sports concepts, one that harkens to the days of leather helmets and long bus rides to the games.

“My mindset,” Mahomes said, “is always to play and compete to the very end.”

And so he did. He injected life into a stymied offense that looked all but done-for, coaxed three touchdowns out of that offense over the short span of 5 minutes, 1 second late in the fourth quarter and pulled out a 31-20 victory over San Francisco in a game that seemed all but lost.

Three times during this postseason, Mahomes and the Chiefs have trailed by 10 points or more, and all three times they’ve come back to win by double-digits themselves. That’s a first. But even that history-making feat doesn’t do justice to what Mahomes pulled off in the final game of the NFL’s much-celebrated centennial.

After Mahomes threw the first postseason interception of his three-year-old career —“I hit him right between the ‘5’ and the ’4,” he said of the pick to linebacker Fred Warner — the 49ers drove 55 methodical yards to take a 20-10 lead.

There was 2:35 left on in the third quarter and the Chiefs, used to buzzing up and down the field to the tune of 51 and 35 points in the two earlier games this postseason, had gained 187 yards and amassed only 136 passing. They had scored a measly touchdown and a field goal and hadn’t cracked a single play longer than 19 yards.

“I wasn’t feeling good about it at all,” said receiver Tyreek Hill, who would soon prove critical in turning around the game. “I told Pat, ‘It’s 20-10 with seven minutes left — c’mon bro,’ And all Pat did, he just told me to believe.”

Hill believed. And he started running.

Up against a defense that had allowed a total of eight completions on downfield throws all season, the receiver with track-star speed somehow found a soft spot deep in the 49ers secondary. Mahomes, harassed all night into quick, off-target throws, dropped 13 yards behind the line of scrimmage, surveyed the field — then stepped up and heaved it. The ball dropped soft as a feather into Hill’s arms. Four plays later, Kansas City, only moments earlier thinking of concession speeches, was within three points.

There was 6:13 left in the game.

“I’m not sure exactly what happened,” 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan said, when asked to reflect on the play that swung the momentum.

Rarely has a game turned so rapidly. Rarely has a team still behind on the scoreboard seemed so destined to win.

It all happened so fast, in fact, that everything before it felt like a mirage.

Hours earlier, to celebrate its 100th year, the NFL brought four centenarian World War II veterans to midfield to preside over the pregame coin flip. Halftime featured a hip-shaking, pole-climbing celebration of Latina heritage, courtesy of 43-year-old Shakira and Jennifer Lopez, who hardly looked like the 50-year-old she is — where has the time gone?

Chiefs fans had been asking the same question for a while now.

It had been 50 years since their team last appeared in, and won, the Super Bowl. Mahomes, the quarterback who coach Andy Reid handpicked and traded away draft picks to get, was supposed to change all that.

But when the smoke cleared from J-Lo and the third quarter started, he was no better.

“We knew it would be a close game, and there would be some challenges,” Reid said. “He kept firing. That’s what he did. The guys around him just believed in him. We all did.”

After the touchdown that made it 20-17, it took all of three plays for the Chiefs defense to get the ball back to Mahomes.

On the next possession, he struck for another long play — this one to receiver Sammy Watkins who torched the 49ers premier defensive back, Richard Sherman, at the line of scrimmage and got behind him for the easiest 38-yard catch he’ll ever make. Three plays later, it was 24-20.

Less than 90 seconds after that, it was 31-20, and long-suffering Kansas City had won the Super Bowl.

It didn’t take long for the questions to start coming about a young team with a young quarterback and a grizzled old coach in Reid who thinks young: Could this be the first of many?

“I mean, obviously, I’ve had a great start to my career,” said Mahomes, who finished with 286 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions, in flicking it away.

Does he see himself as the new face of the NFL?

“There are a lot of young quarterbacks, and still a lot of veteran guys that are playing at a very high level,” he said. “So, I just try to be the best Patrick Mahomes I can be.”

Which, as the Niners, the NFL and the entire Super Bowl-viewing audience discovered Sunday night, was certainly good enough.

Ever since Shakira and Jennifer Lopez were announced as headlining the Super Bowl LIV Halftime show, it was expected that the two would bring the Latino Power, and the singers did not disappoint.

The divas delivered a nearly 15-minute performance that began with Shakira, who opened with “She Wolf,” followed by a medley of her hit songs, including “Whenever, Wherever” and “Hips Don’t Lie.” Viewers at home and in the stadium were surprised to hear Shakira launch into “I Like It,” the song made famous by Cardi B., until Puerto Rican singer Bad Bunny, who was featured on the track, joined in on a Super Bowl remix of sorts. Shakira also wowed with her guitar playing — or slaying — skills, nodding to Led Zeppelin’s “Kashmir” as she belly danced atop a fiery projection.

J. Lo’s performance followed with a demonstration of her pole dancing talents, courtesy of the movie “Hustlers,” in which she stars. It was just one of a dozen-plus choreographed pieces which showed her versatility as a performer and, yes, as a singer. Among her greatest hits mini-set were the classics “Jenny from the Block” followed by snippets of “I’m Real,” and “Get Right.” She then changed into a silver and nude one-piece and launched into “Waiting for Tonight.” 

Colombian artist J Balvin joined Lopez for a performance of “Que Calor,” while she sang “Love Don’t Cost a Thing.” The two switched to “Mi Gente,” on which Balvin collaborates on with Beyoncé, who was also in the building. As Balvin exited the stage, Lopez went into “On the Floor” and touched hands with her daughter Emme, who led as a vocalist in a chorus of children performing a slowed-down moving version of “Let’s Get Loud.” This was followed by Emme, whose father is Marc Anthony (also present in the stadium), delivering the chorus to Bruce Springsteen’s “Born in the U.S.A.” Referencing her own heritage, Lopez was draped in a coat bearing the Puerto Rican flag.

By extending an invitation to J Balvin and Bad Bunny, it seems that Shakira and Lopez clearly strategized to have Colombian and Puerto Rican talent onstage at all times. But it wasn’t until “Waka Waka,” the halftime show’s finale when Jennifer Lopez shared in vocal duties, that the two most powerful Latinas in entertainment performed together in a perfectly synchronized last bow. 

The two stars hugged at the end of the performance taking in the history-making moment as the first Latinas to headline a Super Bowl halftime stage.

NFL Includes OJ Simpson In Tribute!

After the NFL included former running back O.J. Simpson in a pre-game tribute during Super Bowl LIV, social media exploded with reactions. He was recently named one of the 100 greatest players in the history of the game, but was absent during a ceremony that took place before the game between the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. Fox displayed his name and photo in a graphic that included Larry Fitzgerald, Randy Moss, Eric Dickerson and other legendary players.

Social media users quickly reacted to Simpson being included in the honor, with some saying he deserved it for his accomplishments on the field, but others said his off-the-field situations — like going to prison for kidnapping and armed robbery as well as his infamous murder trial acquittal — should be enough to keep him away from official NFL honors.

“Bold move including OJ Simpson in the list of NFL honorees,” wrote columnist Andrew Lawton.

“Did the NFL seriously note how great OJ Simpson was?!” another Twitter user wrote.

“NFL: No place for Kaepernick but plenty of room for OJ Simpson. A league of f—ing hypocritical ghouls,” another user said.

“NFL 100 put OJ Simpson in the corner next to Larry Fitzgerald and hoped nobody would notice,” someone else wrote.


Years after the murder trial of Simpson’s ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and Ron Goldman — for which Simpson was acquitted — Simpson separately served nine years for kidnapping and armed robbery in Las Vegas.

Leading up to Super Bowl LIV, where the Chiefs won the Vince Lombardi Trophy over the 49ers at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida, Simpson tweeted a video message to his followers, a practice that is becoming standard for him.

“Finally it’s Super Bowl Sunday and I just can’t wait,” he said in the clip. “I’m going to a real Super Bowl party.”

Streaker flashes crowd after being tackled…

INSTAGRAM babe Kelly Kay has been revealed as the Super Bowl streaker by her friend and fellow model Colleen McGinniss.

The social media star only made it a few feet from the stands before she was tackled by security during the Kansas City Chiefs’ win against the San Francisco 49ers last night.

Photos showed her ill-fated effort quickly come to a halt as she was pinned to the ground and then led off the field.

But she refused to go quietly and on her way off lifted her dress and flashed Super Bowl fans in the stand.

It is unclear if she was then taken to a nearby police statsion or put in the holding cell at the stadium.

And the mystery still surrounding her identity has now been lifted thanks to her pal.

McGinnis also uploaded the video of the incident to her Instagram account, where she has almost 70,000 followers, writing: “You go bitch!! Look at that ass.”

Kay has 265,000 followers on Instagram herself and also runs an OnlyFans account.

Her efforts aren’t the only X-rated antics to make the headlines in the past 12 months.

Kinsey Wolanski sprinted on to the pitch during Liverpool’s Champions League final victory against Tottenham last summer.

She went on to describe it as “the smartest move of my career” as she is now estimated to be worth £3.8million.

The mastermind behind Kinsey’s prank was Vitaly Zdorovetskiy, a Russian-American YouTuber, who runs a porn website.

Instagram models Julia Rose and Lauren Summer also lifted up their tops to reveal their breasts at a World Series baseball game back in November.

They were subsequently banned from MLB games indefinitely – and protested by standing outside the ground they were banned at and flashing again.

As far as the Super Bowl was concerned, fans have got into the party spirit after Kansas City Chiefs pulled off a stunning comeback to beat the San Francisco 49ers.

The Niners had held a ten-point lead heading into the final period of a classic encounter at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami.

But star quarterback Patrick Mahomes, who had earlier struggled to impose his will on the game, led his side with two touchdown throws in quick succession before Damien Williams ran in a score late on.

The Chiefs had been the favourites coming into the game but Mahomes threw two interceptions as San Francisco’s defence stifled the young superstar.

With just seven minutes left on the clock, the Niners still led by ten – before Mahomes and the explosive Chiefs offence took charge.

Travis Kelce and Williams caught touchdown passes from Mahomes before Williams run in a 38-yard rush to seal it.

DISNEY Paid $75 Million For 'HAMILTON'; Biggest Film Acquisition Deal Ever?

EXCLUSIVE: When Lin-Manuel Miranda tweeted the news Monday that the movie adaptation of his groundbreaking Broadway show Hamilton was set for release by Disney in fall 2021, he omitted one of the most breathtaking parts of the deal.

According to sources, Disney beat out other suitors and paid $75 million for worldwide rights to the show that won 11 Tony Awards in 2016, as well as the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. Disney won the deal with a commitment for a wide global theatrical release for the 2 hour, 40 minute movie, which was shot two weeks before the original cast left.

I can’t think of an acquisition of a finished film that has gone for more money than this one. It is, however, a seminal cultural zeitgeist event and, as Miranda himself has said, the movie allows people to avoid having to pay $500 a seat, which they were before the original cast and he moved on. You could hardly call this profligate spending, given that when Hamilton finishes its traditional theatrical run, it will then become a major title on the Disney+ streaming service.

Director Tommy Kail directed both the stage version and the movie, which consisted of shooting three live performances, and also some setup shots without an audience. All of the footage was used to create multiple angles, to ensure the cinematic nature of the event, without a bad seat in the house.

Endeavor Content brokered the massive WW Hamilton deal along with Miranda’s attorney Nancy Rose of Schreck Rose. WME reps Miranda and Kail.

Beyonce, Jay-Z DO NOT Stand For National Anthem…

Jay-Z, Beyonce and their daughter, Blue Ivy are at Super Bowl LIV in Miami and they did something a little surprising. During the national anthem which was performed by Demi Lovato, all three were seen not standing. They were sitting a few rows back from the field and TMZ was able to obtain video of the three sitting during the performance. The video can be seen here.

This is an interesting move because Jay-Z is a teamed up with the NFL to help raise awareness with police brutality and the criminal justice system. Could this mean the Carters are on the side of former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick?

“I think that we forget that Colin’s whole thing was to bring attention to social injustice, correct?” Jay said during his press conference with the NFL back in August. “So in that case, this is a success; this is the next thing. ‘Cause there’s two parts of protesting. You go outside and you protest, and then the company or the individual says, ‘I hear you. What do we do next?’ So for me, it was like, action, actionable item, what are we going to do with it? Everyone heard and we hear what you’re saying, and everybody knows I agree with what you’re saying. So what are we going to do? So we should, millions of millions of people, and all we get stuck on [is] Colin not having a job.”

Back in 2016, Kaepernick kneeled during the national anthem all year long. He opted out of his contract once the season came to an and he has not joined another team since. He was scheduled to work out for the NFL in Atlanta back in November, but he decided to work out at a local high school instead.

“I’ve been ready for three years,” Kaepernick said to reporters after the workout. “I’ve been denied for three years. We all know why I came out here. [I] showed it today in front of everybody. We have nothing to hide. So we’re waiting for the 32 owners, 32 teams, Roger Goodell, all of them stop running. Stop running from the truth. Stop running from the people.

“We’re out here. We’re ready to play. We’re ready to go anywhere. My agent, Jeff Nalley, is ready to talk [to] any team. I’ll interview with any team at any time. I’ve been ready.”

Gold and Bentleys: Lebanese spend big to salvage savings…

Beirut (AFP) – Companies are closing and restaurants are half empty but in the gloom of Lebanon’s worst economic crisis in decades, luxury jewellers, supercar dealerships and art galleries are doing brisk business.

Worried that their life savings might vanish with a collapse of the banking sector, some Lebanese are syphoning cash from their accounts and buying the most expensive goods they can get their hands on.

Banks have slapped restrictions on withdrawals and overseas transfers, leading some depositors to use cashier’s checks to spend savings they fear would otherwise be depleted by a haircut or a devaluation.

“Our sales have trebled since November,” said Karl Kenaan, a Beirut-based real estate broker. “There’s a huge demand.”

Companies encouraging Lebanese to offload their savings by investing in property have launched advertising campaigns on billboards and on social media.

“People want to diversify their investments as a precaution against the threat that hovers above the banking sector and the national currency,” Kenaan said.

To be on the safe side, many choose to buy flats and houses outside of Lebanon for fear the property market could collapse too.

“Secure your savings with a property investment in Greece you can pay for in Lebanon,” reads a Facebook ad for a real estate agency.

– Gold is golden –

The Lebanese pound has been officially pegged to the dollar since 1997 but it has lost a third of its value on the parallel market recently.

With the prospect that Lebanon might restructure or default on its debt after years of economic mismanagement and corruption, many Lebanese fear that an official devaluation of the pound will slash their savings.

The loss of confidence in a banking sector that was once a source of national pride is such that deposits in Lebanon have slumped by $12 billion over the first 11 months of 2019.

For years, deposits had been fuelled by the influx of money from Lebanon’s vast diaspora and Gulf residents who were attracted by high interest rates.

These rates, however, have decreased significantly since December, further dissuading depositors abroad and at home from putting their money in the bank.

Despite the controls slapped by banks to prevent capital flight, Lebanese depositors can still ask for cashier’s checks and they are using them to buy goods they feel will not depreciate or can be easily resold abroad.

“More and more clients are buying gold coins, chains, bracelets and necklaces, only for their monetary value,” said one jeweller whose business has 14 branches nationwide.

One car dealer who also asked not to be identified said Lamborghinis and Bentleys sometimes fetching $400,000 were still in demand “even as auto sales are generally plummeting”.

– Art in the cart –

“Sure, these cars gradually lose some of their value but for many buyers it’s a case of trying not to lose everything,” he said.

Artworks, a traditional safe investment in times of crisis, are being snapped in Beirut’s edgy galleries.

“Lately I’ve had visits from people I’ve never seen before in my gallery,” one owner said. “They basically want to see the largest paintings, buy the most expensive pieces.”

Those who are unsure what to spend their money on tend to pull as much cash as possible from the bank and keep it at home.

According to the banking authorities, $3 billion have been withdrawn from banks and hoarded at home since September, triggering a rush on safes.

“Our sales have gone up 50 percent,” said Khalil Chehab, a retailer who specialises in safes and lock boxes.

“Banks used to be our main clients before the crisis broke out, now it’s their customers who are coming to us,” he said, adding that some buyers were ready to spend up to $20,000 on high-end safes.

“People are no longer looking for any kind of profit. They just want to save their money, at any price.”
