World Cup Spirits Dampened By Technical Issues With Jennifer Lopez' Opening Performance


Jennifer Lopez Pitbull

The World Cup opening concert last night wasn’t quite the life-affirming optimism fest it was intended to be. The reason? Sound issues meant that the audience at home could barely hear Jennifer Lopez and Pitbull as they took the stage to perform on opening night. Fans in the stadium were fine, The Telegraph reports, but those watching the festivities elsewhere were likely not impressed.

Jennifer Lopez
Jennifer Lopez did her best, but the sound problems were unmistakable.

Jennifer Lopez took to the stage to sing the official Fifa song We Are One (Ole Ola), looking on fine form for 44. Admittedly, the singer knows how to draw and keep a crowd and she projected as best she could. However, the “appalling sound quality” made J-Lo and Pitbull’s voices sound “tinny” and quiet. Not exactly what you’d want for the opening on the world’s biggest football tournament.

We have been trying to work out scheduling and logistics. Any statements to the contrary were premature. Jennifer would not want to disappoint her fans or fans of fútbol."

Inspired by Avicii's 'Wake Me Up,' 'Timber' blends a dancefloor beat with country influences and is both Pitbull and Ke$ha's third number one single in the UK after having each separately conquered the charts twice before. Though the first week of the year is traditionally quiet one for music sales, purchases of 'Timber' have numbered an impressive 139,000 copies this week, according to the Official Charts Company.

Shaggy Not Dead: Reggae Star DID NOT Die In Los Angeles Bar Fight


Shaggy Pitbull

Shaggy is not dead. Repeat. Shaggy is NOT DEAD. It seems the reggae pop star is the latest celebrity to fall victim to the notorious Twitter death-hoax. Internet reports suggested the "It Wasn't Me" singer had passed away after a particularly bloody bar brawl in Los Angeles.

Someone even updated Shaggy's Wikipedia page with bogus information on the fight and the rapper's subsequent death. It isn't the first time that Mr Boombastic has been rumored to have been killed, it's actually happened plenty of times before. We're pretty sure he fell off a cliff while skiing in Austria, or was that Ryan Gosling? Anyway, the reggae star defiantly told TMZ.com in the first person, "[Shaggy] is like a cat with 9 lives.  But I can happily report that he's alive and kicking and in the same building as me right now as we speak." 

Shaggy - who dubs himself an "International Superstar" on his Twitter profile - released his last album Summer In Kingston on July 19, 2011. The record featured guest vocals from Cuban rapper Pitbull and was initially priced at just $2.99 through iTunes, Amazon and other major digital outlets.
