Top Super Bowl ads… Keanu Reeves’ Spider-Man spin-off… Brandi Glanville tells Armie Hammer ‘#letsbbq’… Priyanka Chopra’s book… and Sam Asghari breaks silence on Britney SpearsListen to “Showbiz – Feb 9, 2021” on Spreaker.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers weren’t the only winners on Super Bowl Sunday. AdMeter ranked the winning Super Bowl ads based on consumer feedback and according to them, Rocket Mortgage came out on top. Rocket Mortgage’s ads with Tracy Morgan, where he shows the distinction between “pretty sure” and “certain,” ranked #1 and #2. CBS was charging roughly $5.5 million for a 30-second spot and Rocket Mortgage did two 60 second commercials. That’s about $22M. Was it worth it? Amazon came in third with its Alexa ad starring Michael B. Jordan. M&M’s commercial with Dan Levy was fourth, followed by Toyota’s ad with Paralympic swimmer Jessica Long in fifth. Coming in sixth was Will Ferrell’s General Motors spot, followed by Cheetos with Ashton Kutcher, Mila Kunis and Shaggy, “Drake from State Farm,” “Doritos’ ‘Flat Matthew McConaughey,’ and rounding out the top 10 was the commercial for Bud Light Seltzer Lemonade.

If you follow Spider-Man, you know one of his biggest enemies is Kraven the Hunter. I was NOT familiar, so I looked him up. Kraven is a big game hunter who drinks all these potions that give him superhuman strength and speed, and they also enhance his reflexes, stamina and endurance. He’s a gifted hunter and tracker who can battle jungle animals with his bare hands and he’s also skilled at taming wild beasts. Now, Marvel is giving this super-villain a stand-alone movie and Keanu Reeves has reportedly been offered the role of the iconic Spider-Man villain Kraven the Hunter in a stand alone movie. Kraven is a wild big-game hunter with superhuman physical abilities, durability, and extreme skills in tracking, and trap and poison making. He’s a hunter looking to finally add one of the most elusive trophies to his wall — Spider-Man. Sources say Marvel has asked Keanu to be in every single movie, but he’s always passed. Keanu has said before he always wanted to be Wolverine. This movie is being described by sources as “a mashup of ‘Man on Fire’ and ‘Logan.’”

If you ever watched Brandi Glanville on “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” you know how much she loves to stir the pot and she often crosses the line. Well! Just when I thought there was nothing left that Brandi could do to shock me, she goes and tweets this: “Dear @armiehammer You can have my rib cage (heart emoji) how do you just keep getting hotter and hotter #letsbbq.” WHAT??? After getting severe backlash, Brandi backpedaled! She tweeted, “Guys I DID NOT KNOW the extent of what’s being alleged against AH I just read he was getting divorced and thought he was hot. No more headline porn for me! I have learned my lesson.” She later added, “When I saw the headlines I went and read all the stuff and now I do kind of feel bad I don’t want people to hurt or eat other people ever.”
Priyanka Chopra-Jonas’ memoir is out today. In Unfinished, Priyanka reveals an unfortunate audition with a director. She writes, “After a few minutes of small talk, the director/producer told me to stand up and twirl for him…He stared at me long and hard, assessing me, and then suggested that I get a boob job, fix my jaw, and add a little more cushioning to my butt. If I wanted to be an actress, he said, I’d need to have my proportions ‘fixed,’ and he knew a great doctor in L.A. he could send me to. My then manager voiced his agreement with the assessment. I never had the courage to stand up for myself…Now on the other side of 35. I know that’s a normalized thing that girls hear so often.”

In case you were wondering, Britney Spears has not seen “Framing Britney Spears.” A source told Page Six that Britney is aware of it, but “she’s chosen not to watch it because she’s fed up with the conservatorship.” Britney has been dating Sam Asghari for four years and we’re not sure if he’s seen it, either. But Sam told “People” magazine, “I have always wanted nothing but the best for my better half, and will continue to support her following her dreams and creating the future she wants and deserves. I am thankful for all of the love and support she is receiving from her fans all over the world, and I am looking forward to a normal, amazing future together.”
