All is Well: Amber Rose and Kim Kardashian Made Peace
Hopefully, this is the last time we speak of this: It looks like the Kanye West / Kim Kardashian / Amber Rose / Wiz Khalifa beef has been squashed. On Monday, Kim called Amber and invited her to a sit-down to hash things out. It happened at Kris Jenner’s house, and it must have gone well, because they took a selfie together when it was over. Here’s Amber’s version, and here’s Kim’s.
Meanwhile, Kanye Tweeted that he and Wiz also spoke on Monday, and it was, quote, “all positive.” And now we can only hope that what happens in Kanye’s backside stays in Kanye’s backside. Get more here.
Lady Gaga Will do a Musical Tribute to David Bowie at the Grammys, and Sing the National Anthem at the Super Bowl
Lady Gaga will do a musical tribute to David Bowie at the Grammys. And other than someone who actually knew or was close to Bowie, they probably couldn’t have found a better fit. CBS says it will be, quote, “a multi-sensory testament to the superstar’s incredible artistry and a reflection of his limitless creativity.” And one of the producers adds, quote, “She’s perfect for it.” The tribute will last six or seven minutes and cover at least three or four of Bowie’s songs. The show airs live on CBS on February 15th. And Gaga is nominated this year for “Til it Happens to You”, a song from a documentary on college sexual assault called “The Hunting Ground”. This is a big week for her, because it was also announced yesterday that she’s singing the National Anthem at the Super Bowl. Get more here.

Melissa McCarthy Says She Wasn’t Asked to Participate in the “Gilmore Girls” Reunion
Before Melissa McCarthy was one of the biggest names in comedy, she played Sookie St. James on “The Gilmore Girls”. But they’re reviving the show with a four-episode mini-season on Netflix, and apparently somebody forgot to tell her. A fan asked Melissa about it on Twitter and she said, quote, “Sadly no one asked me or Sookie to come back . . . Wish them all the best!!” But a day earlier, the show’s creator Amy Sherman-Palladino said she did extend an offer. She said she couldn’t give Melissa a whole storyline because she’s so busy. But she talked to Melissa’s people and told them that if Melissa had even just an afternoon free, she would write a scene for her. Get more here.
Thanks for the invite, but sadly no one asked me or Sookie to come back to Stars Hollow. Wish them all the best!! https://t.co/II2Atug4wx

According to TMZ, the vehicle was parked on a city street when it was broken into, and a bunch of laptops, luggage, and concert gear were stolen.

When TMZ asked him about the robbery, he claimed it hadn’t happened to him. But it did, it was his crew members SUV. But he can’t be blamed, he was probably really stoned. Get more here.
The NFL Is Low-Balling the Only Guy Who Has a Copy of Super Bowl 1
The very first Super Bowl aired on two networks back in 1967, CBS and NBC, and miraculously, neither of them saved a recording of the game. Even crazier, the NFL doesn’t have it either. In fact, there’s only one known copy of the game, and it’s owned by a guy named Troy Haupt, who’s a nurse anesthetist in North Carolina. The “New York Times” says his father recorded it, and it’s just been sitting in an attic all these years. So he tried selling it to the NFL. He was asking for $1 million, which doesn’t seem ridiculous since it may very well be the only copy out there. But that was too rich for the league’s blood, and they countered with $30,000. CBS stepped in and made a sweeter offer: $25,000, an interview for a pregame segment for this year’s Super Bowl, plus two tickets to the actual game. Troy was cool with that, but the NFL threatened to sue him if he sold it to anyone else, because it’s, quote, “copyrighted footage.” So for now, he’s holding on to it. Get more here.
