Grammy-winning supergroup the Black Eyed Peas will be headlining the Super Bowl half time show at Cowboys Stadium on Feb. 6. This marks the first time a pop group has played the Bowl since the 2004 Justin Timberlake/Janet Jackson wardrobe malfunction show.
And the timing is great. Out this week is "The Beginning," the new album from the Peas featuring the single, "The Time (Dirty Bit,)" which incorporates a few lines from Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes' "Dirty Dancing" song, "(I've Had) The Time Of My Life." Blending hip-hop and dance pop with perfection, pick up "The Beginning" on iTunes or in stores and get ready for a great Superbowl half time show.
Axl Rose has filed a $20 million lawsuit against "Guitar Hero" maker Activision claiming its use of the Guns And Roses song "Welcome to the Jungle" violated a deal not to include any imagery of ex-guitarist Slash on "Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock." Rose said he originally granted the company permission to use the song as long as there were no Velvet Revolver songs in the game, the band co-founded by Slash. The game not only featured Velvet Revolver, but Slash was on the game's cover and was available as a playable avatar. Rose filed his lawsuit last week.
