Best of the Entertainment Report Feb 5 - 9

This weekend it was the big game, or the big Justin Timberlake concert depending on who you ask. It all kicked off with the pre super bowl show! J lo SLAYED it and now people are calling for her to get the 2019 half time show!

Pink sang the national anthem and it was ok, but not as good as we’d expect from her! She blames it all on having the flu.

Before Justin Timberlake took the stage for the half time show there were a lot of rumours! People were hoping we’d get justice for Janet or perhaps N’Sync would finally reunite? Then there was talk of a Prince hologram! Of course fans of the purple one were not impressed since he was pretty clear before he passed that he was not a fan of that stuff!

In the end it was not a hologram, but it still felt like something Prince wouldn’t have been a fan of. There was no Janet, there was no N’Sync and all together the performance was a bit ho hum.

The best part may have been the selfie kid? Or the fact Justin Bieber thought Timberlake’s red bandanna says he’s a blood?

 Uma Thurman is talking about Harvey Weinstein and Quentin Tarantino. She says she blames herself for being part of the cover up since Weinstein assaulted more women after he tried to assault her and threatened to ruin her career.

Weinstein denies her allegations and is considering taking legal action. Click the pic for the full article.

Time’s up, Neil." There’s also a petition to get him to step down. Click the pic for the open letter and sign the petition here.
