This going to be one hell of a half-time show!

 

Bruno Mars is set to be joined by the Red Hot Chili Peppers at the MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey on February 2nd, it was revealed on the 11th of January during Fox’s broadcast of the NFC Divisional Playoff  between the New Orleans Saints and the Seattle Seahawks. I think this is great news because I love them both and both are great live so it should be a half-time show to remember! 🙂

The band are set to be the very first capital-R Rock band to perform a Super Bowl Halftime show in four years. The last was The Who who did a greatest hits medley at Florida’s Sun Life Stadium in the year 2010.

The Golden Globes 2014!

U2 had the luck of the Irish last night! Well done boys!

The Golden Globes were on last night where David O Russell’s American Hustle won three statuettes, including the prize for best comedy or musical while Steve McQueen’s 12 Years a Slave won best drama. Meanwhile best director was won by the very witty Alfonso Cuáron for Gravity.

Best foreign language film went to Paolo Sorrentino’s The Great Beauty and best screenplay went to Spike Jonze’s Her.

There was an Irish winner in U2’s Ordinary Love, from Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom.

Bono spoke about working on the film and said how it completed a decades-long journey with Mandela, having played an anti-apartheid concert 35 years ago. “This man turned our life upside down, right-side up,” he said of the late Mandela who sadly passed away last month. “A man who refused to hate not because he didn’t have rage or anger or those things, but that he thought love would do a better job.”

Larry Mullen said: “Not only South Africa, but thanks to Mandela, the course of history in our country, holy Catholic Ireland, was changed forever. Amen.”

Michael Fassbender from Kerry who was nominated for his role as a plantation owner in 12 Years a Slave lost out to Jared Leto who plays a HIV-positive transsexual female in Dallas Buyers Club in the best supporting section. Meanwhile Matthew McConaughey won best actor in a drama for Dallas Buyers Club.

Jennifer Lawrence won the best supporting actress for American Hustle while Amy Adams won best actress in a comedy or musical for the same film while Leonardo DiCaprio won the best actor in the musical/comedy division for Wolf of Wall Street.

Philomena, based on an Irish woman’s story to find her son, was nominated in best picture while Breaking Bad, Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Behind the Candelabra each won two awards in the television sections.

Woody Allen won the lifetime achievement award.
