Celine DIon Check Out My Super Bowl Swagger! See Ya in Houston?

9/9/2016 7:16 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Celine Dion is volunteering to do what Adele won't ... hit the stage for the Super Bowl 51 halftime show in Houston.

Celine was leaving the Ritz in downtown L.A. Thursday night when we asked if she'd have any interest in filling the void for the NFL. You gotta see CD turn on the charm to officially toss her hat in the ring.

She told us, "I would LOVE to do the Super Bowl" -- but she wasn't just talking about singing.

Check it out ... #Celine♥Football  

Tanya Tucker Super Bowl Overdue to Go Country, Again

8/16/2016 7:27 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Yeah, Adele would've been great but since she's out, it's high time the Super Bowl halftime show go full country -- according to country music legend Tanya Tucker.  

Tucker performed at the SB in 1994 along with Travis Tritt, Clint Black and The Judds -- but other than Shania Twain in 2003, it's been all pop and ancient classic rock artists. We got TT in NYC and she broke it down real quick -- there's one artist who'd be perfect for such a big stage. And no, she's not ruling out a duet either. 

BTW, if you forgot that '94 halftime, it's probably 'cause the game was a joke ... Cowboys beat the Bills for the 2nd straight year.

Don't blame country ...

8/4/2016 12:29 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Sam Hunt's got Super Bowl fever ... but it's not what you think.

We caught up with the country star Thursday at LAX and straight up asked which Super Bowl role he'd choose -- headline the halftime show or play QB in the game? The former college QB doesn't skip a beat.

We also ask Sam why chicks in men/women duets don't get the same billing as men country singers.

His answer will melt your heart ... again.

NFL's Emmanuel Sanders I Never Take Off My Super Bowl Ring Not Even When I ...

7/14/2016 6:44 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

He may not be married, but Emmanuel Sanders says he has a "Til Death Do Us Part" relationship with a ring ... the one he got after the Super Bowl ... 'cause he NEVER takes it off. 

The Denver Broncos wide receiver hit 1 OAK in Hollywood after the ESPYs -- wearing his precious -- when we asked if he got Peyton Manning a retirement gift. 

"No, but I did get him a Super Bowl ring!" 

Check out the clip -- Sanders says the Broncos got insurance for the ring in case he loses it, but he's not worried ... 'cause it ain't coming off his finger, EVER! 

Pepsi Sued Over Super Bowl Commercial ... You Jacked Our Idea!

6/7/2016 9:58 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0607_-Janelle-Monae_pepsiAn advertising agency is calling bah bah bah bah BS on Pepsi (get it, like the jingle?) -- claiming the soda company jacked its idea for their fancy 2016 Super Bowl commercial with Janelle Monae ... and now they're suing. 

You know the ad ... it starts with Janelle dancing to the '60s hit "Do You Love Me" in front of a jukebox -- before moving to another room with '80s music ... and another room with a more current vibe. 

Turns out, an ad agency called "Betty, Inc." claims they came up with a virtually identical idea and pitched it to Pepsi back in November ... but the two sides couldn't agree on a deal. 

Betty says Pepsi emailed them in December to tell them they were going in a different direction. 

Fast forward to February ... when the ad aired -- an ad that Betty says was based on their concept. 

Betty's pissed -- and wants Pepsi to pay up for stealing their idea ... especially since Pepsi hailed the spot as a smashing success. 

A rep for Pepsi said, "This lawsuit is without merit and we plan to vigorously defend ourselves."

Willem Dafoe Who Wants My Super Bowl Dress?

6/6/2016 12:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0606_Willem-Dafoe_snickers_commercialThink you got better legs than Willem Dafoe? You might get your chance to prove it ... 'cause the Marilyn Monroe dress he donned for his Super Bowl 50 commercial is hitting the auction block.

You remember the clip ... Dafoe rocked a replica white dress from Marilyn's legendary subway grate scene from "The Seven Year Itch" for a Snickers commercial. Funny stuff. 

Now, the folks at Julien's Auctions got their hands on it -- and are putting it up for grabs at their Monroe-themed auction in September.

So, how much is it going to go for? 

Hopefully A LOT -- because all proceeds will benefit Feeding America, the nation's largest hunger relief organization. 

FYI, Marilyn's original white dress went for over $4.6 million at auction back in 2011 when Debbie Reynolds -- another Hollywood legend -- sold it from her private collection.

That's a WHOLE LOTTA candy bars.

EXCLUSIVE

Rams stud Todd Gurley just made the first prediction of his young career ... saying his Rams are going to beat Los Angeles to the Super Bowl by four years ... and play in THIS YEAR'S game.

Gurley was arriving at LAX when we talked to him about L.A. hosting Super Bowl LV in 2021. Obvious question is ... will the hometown Rams be playing in it?

Good news Rams fans ... Gurley is confident his guys will get to the big game ... only he says it's gonna happen in eight months .... not four years ... which we gotta say, would be awesome.

No pressure, Jared Goff

The top has the letters MBG -- which we're told stands for Money Bag Gang (Von's crew of close friends). 

The side has an image of Texas -- Von's home state. 

Von's reportedly expecting to sign a $100 million contract this offseason -- so, why not treat yo'self, right??

UFC's Chris Weidman DELIVERS PIE JUSTICE ... To TMZ Loser

EXCLUSIVE

UFC superstar Chris Weidman played the role of Super Bowl bet debt settler in the TMZ office ... punishing the producer who picked the Panthers to win -- by delivering a right-handed pie to the face. 

It all went down while Weidman was co-hosting the "TMZ Sports" TV show on FS1 -- and brought up the bet Evan and Van made with Weidman back in February. 

The initial bet was "loser gets a leg kick from Chris Weidman" ... but Van (he picked the Panthers) was able to negotiate down to a pie to the face.

Beyonce NYPD Cops ... Tell The World You Don't Hate Us

2/20/2016 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0219-beyonce-formation-outfit-GETTY-01Beyonce must come forward and tell the world her Super Bowl performance was NOT an attack on cops ... that's what the rank and file in the NYPD want, and want badly. 

Our NYPD sources admit they don't believe Beyonce was advocating hostility toward police in her homage to the Black Panthers. Problem is ... they say that's the way it came across for millions of viewers.

We're told cops are bitter and want her to publicly disavow violence or any other type of aggression toward police. While she's at it, they'd also like an explanation as to what she really meant.

All that said, our sources were quick to add they will fully protect Beyonce when she's in NYC.

2/12/2016 4:14 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jay Z finally responded to online anchor Tomi Lahren's attack on Beyonce's halftime show and his criminal past ... and it's awesome. 

Lahren's rant went viral when she called out Bey, saying ... "Your husband was a drug dealer for 14 years."

Jay Z was hanging out with podcaster Tax Stone when Tax decided to reference Tomi's comment.

Fair to say Jay is umm ... amused by Tomi's take on his history.
