First it looked to be on, then it was off, and now, it's… on again?!

Lady GaGa apparently WILL perform at the Super Bowl halftime show, according to media reports close to the NFL that have come out on Saturday morning.

If you remember back a few weeks, the singer was in talks to perform at the big game at the time, and yet, that fizzled (or maybe more accurately, nothing significant leaked to the media at the time!).

Then, last week,

Former NFL Star Marshawn Lynch Would Rather See Colin Kaepernick Protest The National Anthem Than 'Put His Hands Up & Get Murdered'

no title

Marshawn Lynch just made a very powerful point in support of Colin Kaepernick.

In the wake of Tulsa police fatally shooting unarmed Terence Crutcher, the Seattle Seahawks alum just perfectly defended the quarterback's decision to peacefully protest the National Anthem.

On Tuesday, the retired NFL star joined Conan O'Brien on his late-night show to literally stand up for the San Francisco 49ers player, poignantly saying:

"With what's going on, I'd really rather see him take a knee, than stand up, put his hands up, and get murdered."

So incredibly well-said, while tragically highlighting the serious police profiling problem throughout our country.

The 30-year-old hopes Colin's movement causes a societal shift across the nation, which will make everyone aware of the racism that still exists, and ultimately end it, adding:

"My take on it is, sh*t's gotta start somewhere. And if that was the starting point, I just hope people open up their eyes to see that there's really a problem going on, and something needs to be done for it to stop."

The ex-running back also called out everyone against the athlete's harmless display:

"And, I mean, if you're really not racist, then you won't see what he's doing as a threat to America, but just addressing a problem that we have."

Colin Kaepernick Says Tulsa Police Officer Should Be In Prison For Killing Terence Crutcher Amidst Continued Death Threats

When will enough be enough?

Colin Kaepernick wasn't the least bit surprised about the backlash he got over his national anthem protest… and sadly, that included receiving death threats.

The San Francisco 49ers quarterback recently revealed he's been targeted by "couple different avenues" since he started sitting, then kneeling, during the national anthem in protest of racial injustice and police brutality in the country.

Speaking to the San Francisco Chronicle on Tuesday, the athlete admitted that he's yet to alert team officials to the threats, explaining:

"To me, if something like that were to happen, you've proved my point. And it will be loud and clear for everyone why it happened. And that would move this movement forward at a greater speed than what it is even now."

We sure hope it doesn't come to that… but he has a point!

Though it's scary that the 28-year-old has to worry about death threats, we were reminded why he's protesting when yet another unarmed black man was shot and killed by an officer in Oklahoma earlier this week.

On top of being devastated by Terence Crutcher's murder, Kaepernick took further issue with the fact that Tulsa Police didn't even treat him like a human being, telling press:

Such a fitting tribute for a true legend!

Prince may have passed on, but he'll never leave the hearts and minds of his fans — and it appears that his home state of Minnesota isn't too keen on ever forgetting his memory and music, either!

NFL Denies Report That They've Chosen Lady GaGa To Perform At Super Bowl Halftime Show

Filed under: Music MinuteLady GaGaFootballNFLSuper BowlNews

No Lady GaGa for the Super Bowl — at least, not yet!

Even though rumors have flown that she may be the one chosen to perform at the halftime show this coming February — and Us Weekly reported that decision was made final — the NFL is very clear that they have NOT yet made a decision!

Natalie Ravitz, the senior VP of Communications for the NFL, tweeted out on Sunday that the league had not yet made a decision about whether to go with GaGa or somebody else, and in the process, she COMPLETELY shaded Us Weekly!

Awkward!

UPDATE: UNC Student Says Campus Police Laughed When She Reported Rape By Star Football Player

no title

UPDATE: 9/14 4:58 P.M. EST — Following Delaney Robinson's self-sworn warrant this morning, Tar Heels linebacker/alleged rapist Allen Artis turned himself in and is expected back in court later today after posting a $5,000 secured bond.


Now that Stanford Rapist Brock Turner is officially off the hook for those "20 minutes of action," we'd hoped the legal system would be ready for a sea change.

But the embarrassing injustice of the high profile sexual assault case has thus far done nothing to impact how the system treats victims.

That's especially unfortunate for University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill sophomore Delaney Robinson.

According to reports, the 19-year-old claims she was raped by Junior linebacker Allen Artis on Valentine's Day earlier this year following a night of underage drinking that led to a blackout.

Unfortunately, despite immediately going to the hospital for a rape kit — which confirmed blunt force trauma to her genitals and neck — campus police simply laughed when she reported the crime.

To make things even worse, while she was questioned about her sexual history and alcohol intake… Allen was allegedly told to
