Sound OFF: ‘Deflategate’

As a Steelers fan I could not be happier that Tom Brady’s suspension was upheld. First off, if there’s any team I hate as much, okay nearly as much as the Ravens, it’s the Patriots. It’s just something about them that I can’t stand. No it’s not the previous cheating allegations, no it’s really nothing against Tom Brady because he’s a beast as what he does. No it’s not the owner, general manager, coach. It’s just something about the team that irks me.

Sunday Rant (V.15): Super Bowl XLIX

Compared to last years Super Bowl BLOWOUT in Jersey, (click HERE for my review) I was excited for this years game because the competition was beyond evident. Before I get into the my review, CONGRATS TO JEROME BETTIS! He’s on his way to being enshrined in football history as a member of the 2015 Hall of Fame Class. #GoSteelers #Steelernation.

Continuing with the congrats, CONGRATS to the New England Patriots. No I’m not a fan of the team, but that was one hell of a game.

Katy Perry, Super Bowl XLIX, Halftime Review

I love doing reviews and the Super Bowl Pepsi Halftime Show is included. Two years ago it was Beyoncè, last year Bruno Mars (click HERE for that review), and this year KATY PERRY! I’m a huge fan of her music and I was interested in seeing not only what she’d perform, but how she would do it.

I had expected for her to perform:

  • ‘Firework’
  • Roar’
  • ‘California Gurls’
  • ‘Dark Horse’
  • ‘Last Friday Night’

Out of those five, she performed four. Not too shabby for my predictions. She came out to “Roar’ on a  geometric lion in a fiery two piece. Switch over to ‘Dark Horse’ with the same geometric themed set and then insert Lenny Kravitz jamming to ‘I Kissed a Girl.’ She didn’t show too much skin, but she dropped it for Lenny. She then had an outfit change into a beach ball inspired two piece and performed ‘Teenage Dream’ and ‘California Gurls.’ The set for that reminded me her ‘This Is How We Do’ video (click HERE for to check it out) with the dancing shark, beach balls, surf board, and palm trees.

Just when you thought it was over, it wasn’t. She kept going and I don’t mean that in a good way. She then brought out Missy Elliot who performed not one, not two, but THREE SONGS: ‘Get Ur Freak On,’ ‘Work It,’ and ‘Lose Control.’ No pop when she came out. Katy threw on a dope hoodie and even did a little choreo during ‘Get Ur Freak On.’ Just a little two step. Missy took me back with the hits though. I surely rapped along.

If you got a big _ let me search it

Once Missy was done Katy came back out and did ‘Firework as she floated through the arena on a Star that looked like something from a kids show. I was ok with her other outfits, but I didn’t like the star dress. She could’ve just done all sequins or something.

Overall the performance was pretty boring. Boring as in I wasn’t all that interested. There was no pop from the crowd, no buzz. I love that she brought out Lenny Kravitz and Missy Elliot, but this new generation doesn’t know who they are. No one seemed to scream when Missy came out.  Lenny Kravitz wasn’t a surprise because they kept saying through the first half that he’d be a part of the performance. How do you bring out someone and have them do three songs and you’re the headliner? She could’ve started rapping or something.

It just wasn’t what I expected and when it was over I was ready for the game to come back on. She did too much and while it’s great to bring out other stars during her set, it was just too much music. Never thought I’d say that, but it was. I would’ve preferred for her to elongate the songs she performed.

Russell Wilson took a shower and changed into a new uniform during Halftime. That pun right there shows that I could’ve been doing something else. Eh, it was alright. It wasn’t horrible, just not great compared to her predecessors.

Last year the game was a dud with a great Super Bowl performance. This year it was reversed. Still a fan of KP, just not this performance. Until next year…

Video Review: Big Sean x E-40, ‘I Don’t Fuck With You’

Big Sean has released a video for his latest single, ‘I Don’t Fuck With You’ featuring E-40 and this one is surely a banger. I never got around to doing a track review because when the track came out I hadn’t even heard it. I just saw countless hashtags (#IDFWU) and people saying it just like Big Sean does. Once I heard it, I definitely added it to my rotation (check out my September/October Favorites).

So this is a jam packed cameo video and revolves around, my favorite, FOOTBALL! Pictures had surfaced weeks ago and I knew that Teyana Taylor, fellow G.O.O.D. Music artist would be featured. I did not know that Kanye West would be on the sideline, and be coach at that, nor was I expecting to see DJ Mustard on the field. I mean, Ye and Mustard produced the track so that’s cool. Enough rambling, let’s get into the review.

First shout out to the commentator, Big Boy from Cali’s Power 106,. Big Sean is the star high school quarterback of the Lions (no surprise D-Town) as they face the Pirates. He apparently has a ton of scholarships yet he’s having one sucky game. Coach Ye is on the sideline being super chill. I was expecting a more turnt up Ye. Hello, your star QB is messing up the game. Moving on, it flashes between Sean throwing an interception to the Pirates fans cheering and his teammates looking on and shaking their heads. Teyana Taylor looked cute on the side as a cheerleader.

The beat changes and it shows Sean getting in the car with his ‘girl’ who is from the other school which looks to be a rival, yet it shows clips of her with another dude. The shade. Back to the game, Kanye whispers “Focus” and Sean suddenly gets it together. Insert E-40 who’s another commentator in the booth. He looks great by the way. DJ Mustard takes the field (insert another ‘MateFit’ plug). He gets the ball, bulldozes into the end zone, and TOUCHDOWN!

10 seconds left and the score is 24-21, Lions down. With one second left time slows down as Big Sean plugs his new girlfriend in his rhymes and ends up taking the ball into the end zone. Excuse me, DIVES into the end zone  Hurray, Lions win. No surprise. His “girl” approaches him and he doesn’t cause a scene or anything. The thirsty chick in the stands all night tries to run up on him and pushes the other girl out the way only for Sean to push her out the way and move past both chicks. Another girl flashes him her boobs and he proudly signs them before being lifted into the air by his teammates. Great front page picture shot.

I really enjoyed the video. He had a lot of distractions in the beginning of the game, but it ultimately came down to getting focused and doing what he had to do. That’s like with any breakup. You may be down for bit, but then you have to bounce back and get back on your grind and worry about yourself. Great video.

Sean is in the process of working on his 3rd studio album and in an interview with Carson Daly stated:

You guys might be getting it for a stocking stuffer, who knows?

If he plans on throwing more shade on this one, I’m all for it. I’m ready for a new Big Sean album.

Bruno Mars Sets Super Bowl Halftime Ratings!

Image

Bruno Mars TORE DOWN the stage at Met Life Stadium last night for the Super Bowl XLVII Halftime show. Check my review here. Well the ratings are in and Bruno has the most-watched halftime show in Super Bowl HISTORY! He topped both Madonna’s (114 million) and Beyoncé’s (110.8 million) halftime ratings with a staggering number of his own, 115.3 million views. The game itself was the most watched event in U.S. television history with 115.5 million views, so prop to Bruno for being just as much the center of attention. On top of that he became the YOUNGEST performer to headline a Super Bowl at 28 years old.

CONGRATS BRUNO!!!
