Janet Jackson Shoots Down Super Bowl Performance Rumors

  Janet Jackson Shoots Down Super Bowl Performance Rumors Less than 24 hours away from the Super Bowl and there have been a flurry of rumors circulating. One of the big ones was that Janet Jackson was going to perform during NFL’s biggest game of the year. Unlike the other rumors making their rounds on the Internet, Janet — Miss Jackson if you’re nasty — officially put hers to rest. The music legend took to Instagram to shoot down the rumors saying, “To put to rest any speculation or rumors as to whether I will be performing at the Super Bowl tomorrow; I will not. Thank you for your support and I do look forward to seeing you all very soon.

Every Monday, Fenric Towell plucks the long hairs that sprout like weeds on his dog’s neck, ears and bottom. On Wednesdays, he pulls the hairs on her back and sides. Also during the week, he clips Missy’s toenails, bathes her and brushes the Lakeland terrier with coat polish, a conditioner for dogs.

Inspired by interest in dog agility, cat fanciers began holding agility competitions in the early 2000s, largely with the goal of getting people to play more with their felines. Here’s video that Michael Bennett’s sister recorded of her brother running onto the field after 2017 Super Bowl .

Older brother Cortlund washes his dog, too, and trims her whiskers. His English pointer is allergic to dust, and Icy will break out in hives if she is not thoroughly scrubbed. An itchy dog does not make for a happy pet — or show dog.

Fenric, who is 11, and Cortlund, who turned 18 on Tuesday, are junior dog handlers. The siblings live in Oklahoma City with one sister, five brothers and 10 dogs. When the boys are not grooming and exercising their four-legged pals at home, they are competing in dog shows across the country. Last year, they averaged 15 to 20 days a month on the road.

“I do my homework on the car ride there and back,” said Cortlund, who is home-schooled and started competing when he was 12. (Five of the Towell children show dogs; 9-year-old Gideon is the youngest.)

‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ Teaser Surprises Super Bowl Audiences

  ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ Teaser Surprises Super Bowl Audiences Since Disney has taken ownership of Lucasfilm, the studio hasn’t used the Super Bowl as a launch pad for Star Wars movies. Until today. Taking everyone by surprise without any forewarning, Disney dropped a teaser for its Memorial Day opener spinoff Solo: A Star Wars Story. The trailer officially drops tomorrow. There was an assumption among fanboys that Disney would drop this during the Winter Olympics, but here it is, the first 38 seconds of Solo. Ron Howard took over the directing reigns of Phil Lord and Christopher Miller after the directing duo were fired from Solo back in June.

Why not just eat at your bowl ? She's an only dog , so it's not like she's trying to shield it from the competition . I'm certainly not super interested in eating her food.

Fenric and Cortlund capped off their busy — and successful — season at the Westminster Kennel Club dog show. The Super Bowl of canine competitions is held every February in New York City, and only about 100 kids qualify for the Junior Showmanship event.

“It’s a really big thing for me,” said Fenric.

To land a spot at Westminster, you have to be 9 to 18 years old and have won the title of best junior handler at least seven times at American Kennel Club shows over a 12-month period. The Towells exceeded that magic number. Fenric took home the ribbon nine times; Cortlund’s tally is a whopping 44.

“I make sure the dog is happy and calm,” Cortlund said of his strategy. “I try not to overthink it.”

Last year, Cortlund took fourth place at Westminster, an achievement he dedicated to his sister. In 2015, Annessa competed in New York but did not advance to the Junior Showmanship Finals.

“She didn’t reach the goal she wanted, and she deserved it,” he said. “I felt like I had to go and get something for her.”

The Subtle Way Justin Timberlake Acknowledged Janet Jackson During His Super Bowl Performance

  The Subtle Way Justin Timberlake Acknowledged Janet Jackson During His Super Bowl Performance Justin Timberlake‘s return to the Super Bowl stage on Sunday to headline this year’s halftime show was always going to be controversial, thanks to his infamous “Nipplegate” moment with Janet Jackson in 2004. However, it appears that the singer attempted to subtly address the notorious moment with one of his first songs of the set: a reprisal of the duet of “Rock Your Body” that he did with Jackson 14 years ago. Timberlake infamously sang the lyrics “I’m gonna have you naked by the end of this song,” as he ripped off part of Jackson’s bodice in a move that would add “wardrobe malfunction” into the pop culture lexicon; however, this time around, Timberlake sang the song but abruptly yelled, “Stop!” before he reached those lyrics, a subtle acknowledgment of Jackson and the controversy of “Nipplegate.” Watch the full clip above.

As a companion to “Puppy Bowl ,” “The Dog Bowl ” works with shelters and rescues across the country to fill the rosters of two teams of professional players, Team Paws and Team Tails, in the ultimate canine competition .

At every dog show, Westminster included, the boys follow the same steps.

First, transform Missy and Icy into beauty queens. At this point in the pups’ careers, the 2-year-olds are used to the salon treatment, including a spritz of hair spray to tamp down flyaway fur.

Second, keep the dogs as still as statues while a judge checks their teeth, by peeling back their lips; muscles, by giving them a squeeze on the shoulder and back side; and coats, by running a hand over their fur like a dust cloth. And finally, take a lap around the ring, without dog or person tripping up.

“My mom gives me a list of things to remember,” Fenric said. “Keep eye contact with the judge and look at the dog to make sure she isn’t doing something bad.”

Fenric knows that Missy can get into mischief. She has confused a Pekingese dog and a women’s fur coat for her squeaky toy. Neither one was interested in playing along.

At Westminster, Fenric competed Monday morning but didn’t make the cut. Cortlund showed the next day and did not advance, either. However, instead of focusing on the loss, he bounced back fast. Within minutes, he was back in the ring for a different event, still trying for a win.
