It was revealed earlier this week that rapper DMXwas selected to face off against George Zimmerman in a celebrity boxing match.

Fox News caught up with the rapper, whose real name is Earl Simmons, to get more details about the fight  - and you won’t believe what he had to say.

According to DMX, though his name was selected out of more than a thousand other celebrities, he has yet to agree to step into the ring. The rapper says Zimmerman will have to agree upon certain stipulations before he’ll go blow-for-blow in what promoters are calling one of the biggest celebrity boxing matches of all time.

“Well, I was challenged. I was challenged. You know, I still haven’t really decided if I would do it. But if I did do it, the money going to him would have to go to charity,”…

Cameron Diaz, 41, just keeps adding bullet points to her résumé. After playing photographer and writer for her The Body Book, she also took on the role of artistic director for accessories line Pour La Victoire, helping to oversee the artistic direction of the line. And now the first round of shoes created under her supervision is being released.

The fall 2014 collection features lots of neutrals, luxe suede and leather and moderate heels. And while she’s very clear that she won’t be putting her name on the designs or appearing in the ads, she wants her stamp to be all over the brand.

Md. Man’s Time Traveling Doritos Commercial Airs During Super Bowl

Originally posted on CBS Baltimore:

ELLICOTT CITY, Md. (WJZ) — An Ellicott City man’s ad for Doritos lands a spot during the Super Bowl.

Raj Suri –a Centennial High graduate–made the ad for just $300.

“We are all pretty excited and pretty thrilled,” Suri said. “This whole experience has been surreal.”

The commercial was one of two finalists picked to air during the game.

“Just really appealing, really cute, really sweet and I think it’s really funny, and I think it’s rare that you have all of those elements and I think it’s just a spot that everyone can be proud of,” Suri said.

It’s incredible considering companies pay a whopping $4 million per 30-second commercial and ad spots sold out months ago.

Why Bruno Mars Will Not Get A Check For His Super Bowl Performance

Tonight, Bruno Mars will step on stage with the Hot Chili Peppers as the halftime performer at Super Bowl XLVIII, a huge show that no musician turns down despite not getting paid. That’s right, the 28-year-old singer — just like his predecessors Beyoncé, Madonna, Prince and Janet Jackson — will not be compensated for his 12-minute performance.

MUST READ: Jay Z & Beyonce Are Still ‘Drunk In Love’ During Surprise Super Bowl Party Performance

Here’s why:

According to reports, the musician’s payment comes in the form of exposure. “He’ll be playing what amounts to a 12-minute commercial for himself, which should boost sales for concert tickets, albums and merchandise,” Forbes  reports. “For context, a 30-second ad costs about $4 million this year.”

NFL spokesperson Brian McCarthy said the league does not pay, however they do “cover all expenses associated with the performance,” which could easily add up to millions…

Super Bowl Ads: Who Scored, And Who Wasted Their Money

Originally posted on Variety:

Advance marketing campaigns have largely leeched the thrill of discovery out of Super Bowl advertising, since many of the spots were exposed before the game. Of course, that logic seems less assailable given that the game itself was essentially over on the first play of the second half, making viewing optional if you really gave a damn about who wins.

The level of perceived creativity in Super Bowl advertising has taken on a life of its own, which has led to the content generally being overrated. Moreover, one of the biggest sponsor categories — movie studios — are invariably challenged to come up with genuinely breakthrough creative, since a trailer is pretty much a trailer, the only difference here being the size of the stage and cost of the platform.

That said, watching the game like a regular fan (including a couple of pale ales just to complete the effect)…

Super Bowl Review: Bruno Mars’ Flashy Halftime Blends Old School Showmanship

Originally posted on Variety:

Unless you were born with the first name “Prince,” there’s really only so much a performer can do with the Super Bowl halftime show slot, and Bruno Mars did plenty with his. Though it lacked the Olympian heft of Beyonce’s stand last year, or the sheer spectacle and requisite FCC-trolling of Madonna’s pageantry the year previous, Mars relied on a lot of flash, a hefty dose of Famous Flames-style stagecraft, and a requisite hat tip to the military for a winningly unprepossessing performance.

Running through four proper songs in 14 minutes while still leaving time for the Red Hot Chili Peppers to stage a pleasantly brief “Give It Away” cameo, a sparkly-suited Mars kicked off proceedings with a splashy drum solo good enough to attract some wildly overblown Ginger Baker comparisons from Fox commentators.

Though best known for the sort of four-quadrant pop radio hits that often give the short-shrift…

Seahawks Beat Broncos 43-8 In Super Bowl

Originally posted on CBS Boston:

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Defense wins championships, and the NFL has not seen a defense like Seattle’s in a long time.

The Seahawks won their first Super Bowl title Sunday night in overpowering fashion, punishing Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos 43-8. That relentless defense, the NFL’s stingiest, never let the five-time MVP get going, disarming the highest-scoring offense in league history.

Seattle (16-3) was too quick, too physical and just too good for Denver, and that was true in all areas. What was hyped as a classic matchup between an unstoppable offense and a miserly defense turned into a rout.

Punctuating Seattle’s dominance were a 69-yard interception return touchdown by linebacker Malcolm Smith to make it 22-0, and Percy Harvin’s sensational 87-yard kickoff runback to open the second half.

Smith was the game’s MVP.

When the Seahawks, up by 29 points, forced a Denver punt early in the…

NOT MUCH HAS CHANGED! MTV Returns To Redman’s Infamous Crib 13 Years Later (VIDEO)

Originally posted on Global Grind:

There have been over 100 episodes of the iconic MTV Cribs show.

The greatest MTV Cribs episode features Redman: in 2001, the rapper showed off his two-bedroom house in Staten Island; the house was a mess, one that didn’t have a screen door.

Well, for its Retromania week, MTV decided to revisit Redman’s house again to see how it’s holding up.

And, man: it’s classic. The house is still a little rundown, but he has made improvements: he has a bigger TV now, he redid the kitchen and bathroom (although he has the same shower curtains) and the infamous “dollar box” is gone (replaced with a dollar sock).

Please, please, take two minutes out of your day to watch what Redman’s crib looks like now. You won’t regret it.
