The jersey Tom Brady wore during his fifth Super Bowl win last month was stolen shortly after he took it off in the NRG Stadium locker room in Houston, TX. A little over a month later, Tom’s jersey has possibly been found safe and sound.
The Super Bowl is the biggest day for nacho eaters, but it’s also the biggest day of the year for Don Draper types. The Super Bowl is the Super Bowl of advertising; it’s the day commercials go extra. What other time of year could you watch Sexy Mr. Clean thrust his tight CGI ass and think “Yeah, no, this is totally normal.”
So way back in 2015, Veruca Salt’s Canadian counterpart Justin Bieber demanded his own Super Bowl commercial.
I want a super bowl commercial 🙂

His dream came true this year when T-Mobile put him in a Super Bowl commercial.
CNBC says that the NFL is dropping $10 million on the budget for Lady Gaga’s halftime show. And that makes her halftime show the most expensive Super Bowl halftime show in history. Lady Gaga has a tendency to make any production budget look like a trip to Michael’s Crafts with a gift card and a coupon. But this time she might actually need all that money for her performance.
I figured there were only two options for performing a halftime show at the Super Bowl. You could either put on a legendary performance (see: Prince) or you could bring an end zone worth of top shelf fuckery (see: Katy Perry). Well, apparently you can also get political if you want to. We’re only finding this out because there was a rumor that 2017 halftime show performer Lady Gaga was told to keep her thoughts to herself.
Less than a week after Lady Gaga confirmed the rumor that she’s headlining the Super Bowl halftime show next year, AT&T has made like a reverse-Zeus and yanked away her thunder by announcing that an even BIGGER star will be performing in Houston, TX on Super Bowl weekend. Sorry Gaga, but it’s the Taylor Swift Bowl now.
America’s unofficial cheerleader Taylor Swift totally just read that and developed an aggressive eye twitch. “Oh, so they’re probably going with a blonde pop star who isn’t me? Okay. Cool cool cool. This is fine, I’m fine. Someone get me a gosh-darn strawberry wine cooler NOW.” According to Billboard, there’s a very good chance that Lady Gaga will let out her art school vocals while wearing Discount Costume Warehouse couture on Super Bowl Sunday.
