We don’t know who’s playing in the Super Bowl yet — other than Rihanna — but we do know how much it’ll cost you to go. Tickets are roughly $5K, but depending on how close you want to sit to that 50-yard line, you could pay between $20K-$25K per ticket. Hotels in the Glendale, AZ, area are basically sold out, but there are still rooms available in the surrounding area. Of course, room prices are higher because of the demand. A quick check of Expedia shows the average nightly rate is right around $455. If you plan on flying, ticket prices into Phoenix will vary, depending on where you’re coming from. Just looking real quick, I found flights for under $200.

Last year we found out Madonna was working with Diablo Cody, writing a script for a movie based on her life. There was a lot of buzz about who would play Madonna. Florence Pugh, Bebe Rexha, “Euphoria” actress Alexa Demie and “The Staircase” actress Odessa Young were all rumored to be in talks for the role, which ultimately — reportedly — went to Julia Garner. But now the whole project is on pause because Madonna has decided to go on tour. Since Madonna insists on directing the movie herself, it obviously can’t move forward until she’s available.

Harry Styles was photographed walking through London with someone from his past. He and Ellis Calcutt went to high school together. Right after his brief 2012 fling with Taylor Swift, Harry and Ellis were photographed going on a movie date. The two of them insisted they were just friends. In fact, Ellis protested on social media, posting, “Wow, you people are sooo quick to make up rumours…We’re only good friends and have been since high school. I have a lovely boyfriend called Phil so you can stop spreading rumours about me and Harry dating each other because we absolutely are not!” And it looks like Harry and Ellis are still just friends after all these years. She got engaged last year. But things seem to be heating up between “Outer Banks” star Chase Stokes and Kelsea Ballerini. The two of them were photographed out on a date in Nashville Tuesday night. Last August Kelsea announced she and Morgan Evans were getting divorced after five years of marriage.

Britney Spears deleted her Instagram again, which she does from time to dime. But after her recent social media activity, which included changing her name to River Red, fans were growing increasingly concerned. Several fans called 911 to ask authorities to perform a welfare check on Britney, with one of them live-streaming his call on TikTok. Sheriff’s deputies did end up going to Britney’s house close to midnight Tuesday. While they wouldn’t stay how many calls they received, a spokesperson for the sheriff’s department told Page Six, “I can confirm that we don’t believe that Britney Spears is in any kind of harm or any kind of danger.” Sources close to Britney told TMZ that she was very annoyed by the officers’ visit, calling it an “inconvenience.”

Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned! Shakira is still working through her anger over her lover of 12 years, Gerard Pique, leaving her for a much younger woman. In her recently released diss track, Shakira slammed 23-year-old Clara Chia and took a swipe at Gerard’s mom, who lives right next door to her. Sources say Shakira doesn’t like the fact that Gerard’s mom basically welcomed her son’s mistress with open arms. So in addition to placing a life-sized witch mannequin on the balcony facing his mom’s house and blasting her diss song on full blast non-stop, Shakira is now have a huge wall built so she doesn’t have to look at her former mother-in-law’s house at all. Gerard has been taking this all in stride. In fact, yesterday he decided it was a good time to go Instagram official with Clara!
