Rumors are starting to run rampant over the Internet that Madonna may be the “surprise guest act” recently announced for Superbowl XXXVIII. Of course, how many times have you been at a club where it’s been rumored Madonna is performing? Reports have her spotted at an uptown Houston Starbucks earlier this week. Celebrities do jet in for the big game, but nearly a week beforehand? Sounds like something might be up. Let’s hope for a profusion of love at halftime.
I’m really excited that my friend Jason Sellard’s (aka Jake Shears) retro-electro act Scissor Sisters is taking off like wildfire. Getting featured on the BBC’s Radio 1 is a big, big deal. DJ Pete Tong has been spinning them on Essential Selection for months now. Their sound is really original, a groovy version of the Bee Gees on speed. I wish them the best of luck. Their first single, a cover of Pink Floyd’s “Comfortably Numb”, will knock your socks off.
