Drake’s school donation… Sarah Silverman splits from boyfriend… Update on Justin Timberlake’s Prince tribute… Jennifer Lopez big Super Bowl deal… and Travis Scott looking to buy property near Kylie Jenner
Drake gave students at Miami Senior High quite the thrill when he decided to use their baseball field for his new music video for “God’s Plan.” Drake performed for the students perched on top of a crane that hung over the school’s baseball field while a drone filmed the whole thing. Then he donated $25K to the school and said he’d help design some new school uniforms for them. “God’s Plan” has been number one on the Billboard Hot 100 for two weeks and made history with 68 million streams in its first week.
You may have thought they were an odd match, but their differences didn’t drive them apart…It was the distance. Sarah Silverman and British actor Michael Sheen have been dating since 2014, but Sarah explained on Twitter yesterday, “The great @michaelsheen & I consciously uncoupled over Christmas. I mean, not ‘over Christmas’ – like that wasn’t the fight that ended it. No fight. We just live in different countries & it got hard. Felt we should just tell y’all so u stop askin, ‘How’s Michael/How’s Sarah?’”
Page Six is reporting that Justin Timberlake was “100 percent ready to use the hologram” for his Prince tribute during the Super Bowl halftime show, but backed out at the last minute because of the backlash he was getting on social media due to Prince HIMSELF saying he thought the use of holograms was demonic. And it’s a good thing, because using Prince’s projected image was bad enough. According to sources, Justin came off that field feeling like he killed it. But according to Star magazine, he ended up devastated after he found out about the sound issues during his performance, and he was blindsided by the nasty comments about the Prince tribute. Their source said, “Justin is the golden boy. Not getting great reviews, not being loved is something new to him…This is the first major career moment that hasn’t been embraced. He isn’t used to negative feedback.” But one person telling us to all get over it is Prince’s sister. Tyka Nelson told TMZ that she was pleasantly surprised by Justin’s performance and enjoyed the tribute. She says she and the rest of the family knew he was planning to sing, “I Would Die 4 U,” but she says they did not know he was doing the video projection. But she says her brother wasn’t one to hold grudges and we should all move on.
So how much did Justin Timberlake get paid for his halftime performance? Nada. Now, all of his expenses were covered and he got the world stage to promote his music, which is worth untold millions, but he didn’t get an actual check. Jennifer Lopez, on the other hand, got paid. Star magazine says she got a million dollars to perform at the Direct TV Super Bowl Saturday Night concert. Their source says, “Jennifer is a business women. She doesn’t get out of bed unless there is a big paycheck involved. While Justin was performing on Sunday, Jennifer was cashing her check.”
Now that the baby is here, Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott have decided to slow things down a bit. The Blast is reporting that during Kylie’s pregnancy, she and Travis were shacking up at her place in Hidden Hills. But now that the baby is here, he wants to buy his own place that’s close enough to Kylie and the baby to be involved, but still far enough away to throw parties and live that bachelor life.
