“Us” magazine claims the NFL offered the Super Bowl Halftime Show to Rihanna, but she turned them down . . . over the National Anthem controversy.

A “source” says, “The NFL and CBS really wanted Rihanna to be [the] performer in Atlanta . . . they offered it to her, but she said no because . . . she doesn’t agree with the NFL’s stance.”

That means Maroon 5 was the NFL’s SECOND choice.  There’s no official comment on any of this.

“The Conners” did okay in the ratings on Tuesday night.  It averaged 10.6 million viewers, although that number might climb a bit once DVR and delayed viewing are factored in.

Some might say that it’s down because Roseanne Barr isn’t on the show anymore, but it’s hard to make a direct correlation . . . because last season, it was coming back after being off the air for 21 years.

And this season, it was coming back after being off the air for five months.

They can also scan signature hairstyles, wardrobes, and props.

The “Star Wars” people are hip to this . . . especially since Carrie Fisher’s death messed with their plans.  One of their visual effects guys recently revealed that they’re scanning all their leads now . . . just in case.

Should Cardi B Attack Nicki Minaj or Ignore Her? Her Team is Split

  • 7:34 am Thursday, October 18th, 2018 by Estee

Cardi Bis working on new music, but her team is conflicted over how she should handle her feud with Nicki Minaj

Some of Cardi’s new tracks hit Nicki pretty hard, but some of her people think she should ditch that stuff.  Not because it’s too mean, but because Cardi has already surpassed Nicki, and bringing her up just gives her publicity.

Not surprisingly, Cardi is among those who want to keep it . . . because that’s just how she rolls.

Things have been relatively quiet between them since the shoe-throwing incident last month.

A video Kylie recently posted on Instagram has people wondering.  It’s just a brief clip of some flowers Travis sent her, but the caption says, quote, “Just because flowers are the best kind.  Thank u hubby.”

Married or not, they do already have a child together.  Their daughter Stormi was born on February 1st.
