Review: Super Bowl XLVIII's Music Performances Exceed Expectations

2/3/2014 8:10pm EST
Bruno Mars
2014 is all about trying new things, personally and professionally – or something like that. Last year, I put my two cents in about the Super Bowl halftime show, but didn’t critique the other performances – “America The Beautiful” and of course “The Star Spangled Banner.” Rather than merely focusing on what my boy Bruno Mars did, I’mma give some analysis to Queen Latifah (“American The Beautiful”) and Renée Fleming (“The Star Spangled Banner”) as well. And yes, it is love – for the most part!

Red Hot Chili Peppers star Anthony Kiedis has banned his family from reading his tell-all memoir - because he bored his soul in the book.

The Under the Bridge singer released Scar Tissue in 2004, and the autobiography details his long and harrowing descent into drug addiction, which he finally overcame in 2000.

The book was praised for its "warts and all" honesty - but Kiedis has ordered his family, including his four-year-old son, not to read the tome as it's too personal.

He tells Mojo magazine, "In all truth, I didn't really think it through (when writing the book). I was so used t...
