For some elusive reason — perhaps because we live in a simulation, the world has already ended, or we are all dreaming this terrible timeline in one collective hallucination — Logan Paul is famous. To add insult to injury, so is his brother, Jake Paul.

Meet the Man Who Wants to Sue the NFL for $867 Trillion (Because J. Lo Made Him Horny)

Coach Dave Daubenmire claims that the "crotch shots" in the Super Bowl Halftime show put him "in danger of hellfire."

Update 4/14/2021: Coach Dave is at it again.

This time he specifically called out Right Wing Watch before sharing his thoughts on the tragic killing of 20-year-old Daunte Wright by police officer Kimberly Potter in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota. After pulling Wright over — reportedly for having an air freshener hanging from his rearview mirror, Potter claims to have mistaken her gun for her taser, and fatally shot Wright as he was trying to get away from her.

This Haunts Me: JD and the Straight Shot vs. the NY Knicks

Owner James L. Dolan's cringey vanity project may be one of the biggest obstacles to the Nicks's success.

Once upon a time the New York Knicks were considered a real basketball team.

Led by Hall-of-Famer Patrick Ewing from the late '80s to the year 2000, the team was a genuine rival for the likes of the '90s Chicago Bulls, making 13 consecutive playoff appearances and making it to the NBA Finals in 1994 and 1999.

Is Naomi Osaka a Real-Life Disney Princess?

Iconic Black Culture Moments: Beyoncé Crashes Coldplay's Super Bowl Halftime Show

Beyoncé performing "Formation" at Super Bowl 50 ushered in a new era of Beyoncé, and a new era of Black politics in mainstream music

In 2013, Beyoncé performed at the Superbowl.

As we’ve previously reflected, "After years of Boomer legacy acts getting the prestigious Super Bowl halftime slot (alongside, yes, the Black Eyed Peas, but the less said about them the better), Beyonce took the the stage at Super Bowl XLVII as both the most relevant and most beloved performer to grace the stage in a decade."

Beyoncé's Super Bowl performance came before her December 2013 surprise album, Beyoncé, which ushered in a new era of Beyoncé and a new culture of music drops and feminism and politics in mainstream pop music. Performances of the 2013 album included the legendary VMA performance wherein Beyoncé stood with the word "feminist" displayed behind her, which at the time was brave and controversial for a Black woman with her level of commercial success.

But we didn't know this as she sang her old hits in February 2013. And we didn't know in December 2013 that years later she would be back again with even more unabashed politicism and back at the Super Bowl in 2016 with "Formation."
