So much has happened in the last week for pop culture. There was the Super Bowl, Katy Perry’s half-time show, Whitney Houston’s daughter being rushed to the hospital and so much more.

SUPERBOWL GAME 2015-This year’s Super Bowl was the most watch in history. 114 million people tuned in to watch the most exciting football game. This year’s Super Bowl was something out of a soap opera boxing ring. On one side was the Seattle Seahawks who wanted to prove they are a great team. On the other side, was the New England Patriots who was returning to their 7th Super Bowl and hopes in leaving with their 4th win. What people remember from the game was the lame and stupid play the Seahawks made during the 4th quarter. The Seahawks proved they are arrogant and egoistic by starting a fight with the Patriots. I certainty enjoyed the fight it was funny to watch but sad because you knew the Seahawks were upset that they had lost the game.

HALFTIME SHOW-Can we say Katy Perry did a great job? I know some people thought she killed the show and not in a good way. All the props she had were cute and entertaining. People are still talking about Left Shark and he did not know the moves. The meaning behind it was that the sharks represent two sides of a personality. The right was the side that did everything it was told and the left was the rebellious one. I can hear everyone going, “Now that makes sense!” The guys are both gorgeous models don’t believe me? Go look them up! Katy also brought out Lenny Kravitz and Missy Elliott. I thought they added nothing to the show and they aren’t popular artists anymore. Why not bring some people who are popular at the moment.
BOBBI KRISTINA BROWN-In sad news, Bobbi Kristina Brown was found face down in a bathtub unconscious and with no heartbeat. What makes the story eerie is that she was found the same way her mother, the late and great Whitney Houston died almost three years ago. Brown was place on life support and doctors have told the family to pray for the best but not to remain hopeful. There is news that she is breathing but no one can confirm whether it’s on her own or from a ventilator. There have many different reports about being taking off life support but those stories are simply untrue.

50 SHADES OF GREY– The movie of the year is finally here. Next Friday, theatres will be full of girls (and a few reluctant boyfriend) who want to see Christian Grey and Ana Steele on the big screens. I know I will be seeing the movie. This could be a great movie although I highly doubt it since the books were terrible I barely go to page 20 before I was done. I just want to see how it will play out in the movie.
ROBYN LAWLEY- The beautiful model as the first ever plus size model to grace the cover of Sports Illustrated. I wish the term plus size would not be what defines her. Why couldn’t she just be a model? Just because she does not look like she eats lettuce for all three 3 meals and isn’t a size 0 or 00. I’m not going to rant because I think it is awesome Sports Illustrated is recognizing the many different types of bodies women have.
