*While snippets of this dropped last week, today marks the full reveal of Bud Light’s Super Bowl commercial featuring hidden camera footage of a normal guy having wild night – a portion of which includes Don Cheadle and a llama.
The commercial opens with the guy, Ian Rapoport, in a bar being approached by a beautiful girl, drinking a Bud Light, of course, who sets the stage for adventure from the outset by asking: “If I give you this (beer) are you up for whatever happens next?”
Suddenly a voiceover reveals, “Three seconds ago we gave Ian Rapoport a choice, Ian is not an actor — he has no idea what is going to happen next.”
*Beyoncé has the world scrambling to decode her cryptic message posted on her website Thursday July 26.
With a world of possibilities, some wonder if she’s attempting to announce big news about her music, Blue Ivy, her fragrance line, or maybe even something political.
She posted: “Leave your footprint on 19 August 2012” at Beyonce.com. What could it mean?
Ryan Tedder, the OneRepublic frontman who’s worked with Beyoncé before, told The Boom Box in February of some songs he pitched for an upcoming album that included parenthood themes.
”The conversations about her next album literally just started and there [are] two projects happening,” he said. “All I can say is you kind of feed her the best that you have and she’s this phenomenal filter and she takes it all in.”
New music is a strong possibility.
Adding to the speculations, British pop star Conor Maynard revealed to the BBC that the singer is doing everything in her power to ensure her album doesn’t leak.
“With Beyonce, I heard that with her people they’ll make sure that there’s no one in the studio,” Maynard said. Once she’s finished recording, they move it onto a hard drive. They wipe the studio computer again and then leave.
*Jennifer Hudson has announced that her second studio album, titled “I Remember Me,” will be released on March 22.
The CD’s first single, “Where You Are,” was written and produced by R. Kelly and will arrive at radio stations on Jan. 24.
“I’m excited about this album because it’s almost like a renewal for me, reflected through the chapters of my life,” she said in a press release. ”My fans have been so loyal, I feel like they have been on this journey with me and I can’t wait for them to hear the new album.”
J-Hud revealed that the album’s title was inspired by a poem she wrote, which was later turned into a song by One Republic’s Ryan Tedder and is included on the record.
“I’ve called it I Remember Me because of the journey I’ve been on,” she said.
Other writers featured on the album include Alicia Keys, Swizz Beatz, Ne-Yo and Stargate.
Hudson’s self-titled debut has sold 826,000 copies since its release in 2008, and spawned the singles “Spotlight” and “If This Isn’t Love.”
