Beyonce, Bruno Mars, Coldplay Not Paid For Super Bowl 50 Appeara
Could it be true that Bruno Mars, Beyonce, Lady Gaga and Coldplay were not paid for their Super Bowl 50 appearances for the Pepsi Halftime Spectacular?

Yes, as the exposure given to the artists for their time on stage during the big game far outweighs what they could ever be paid for the performance.

As has always been the case, none of the artists that perform at the Super Bowl are ever paid.

According to Forbes, the increase in attention, social media mentions, larger fan bases and music sales are what push the entertainers over the edge more than a paycheck for the evening could.

Jimmy Carter Thinks Today's Political World Is Corrupt

Jimmy Carter
Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter says American politics is rife with “legalized bribery.”

Carter criticized the U.S. Supreme Court’s Citizens United ruling in 2010, which allows private interests to spend as much as they want on election contributions. The former U.S. president calls this an “erroneous” ruling.

The 91-year-old says it's about rich people buying political influence and having hidden agendas carried out by politicians they're funding.

Carter appeared on BBC Radio 4’s “Today,” talking about how campaign finance has changed since he ran for president.

BMI
Using the Body Mass Index (BMI) as a measure of health has long been debated. Researchers continue conducting studies that reveal now more than ever that BMI isn't the most accurate indicator of health and obesity.

According to CBS Local in Philadelphia, researchers say there are over 50 million Americans categorized as overweight or obese based on their BMI.

Scientists at UCLA went off data from a 2005 to 2012 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey to determine whether BMI is a valid health marker in reading vital information that included blood pressure, triglyceride, choleste...

Rihanna Tops The Album Charts For Second Time

Rihanna Scores Second Career No. 1 Album With 'Anti'
It took seven albums for Rihanna to score her first number one album when 2012’s Unapologetic broke a seemingly unbreakable seal for the urban-pop artist. Now after dropping her eighth studio album Anti and initially debuting at #27 with its unorthodox rollout, Rihanna ascends to number one. How did Anti fare? 166,000 units, though it should be noted that only about 75% of that total are pure sales. Compared to the sales of Unapologetic, the numbers for Anti are down by 114,000 copies. Still, Anti did sell six-figures worth of pure sales, a rarity if your name is not Adele.

Speaking of A...
