The main event of NBA All-Star weekend tipped off as the 67th annual NBA All-Star Game went down on Sunday night at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. In between Team LeBron facing off against Team Stephen, Pharrell and N.E.R.D served as headliners for this year’s halftime show. A 12-minute set filled with curvaceous dancers, a drum squad, NBA mascots, N.E.R.D turned center court into a party while performing the songs “Rock Star,” “1,000” and “Lemon.” The band also had a surprise up their sleeve, bringing out Migos to perform their CULTURE II single “Stir Fry,” as Pharrell (who produced the song) played the drums next to the Atlanta trio.

Always repping his hometown and giving back, Drake is now playing a part in developing potential future basketball stars. On Wednesday (Jan. 17), the 6 God and Toronto Raptors president Masai Ujiri attended a press conference at the Air Canada Centre to announce the Welcome Toronto program, in partnership with the Canadian NBA franchise. Giving back to the city and the game of basketball in Toronto, the partnership will see the Raptors host a total of six ‘Welcome Toronto’ and OVO-themed home games this season, where the team will wear their new black and gold OVO-edition uniforms and home court this season. Drake and the Raptors are also donating $1 million to refurbish local community basketball courts and another $2 million to Canada Basketball, to help the development of potential future stars.

As this team and Toronto continues to grow, we have seen how much we can do together,” said Drake, who serves as the Global Ambassador for his hometown team. “Welcome Toronto is about celebrating our team and our city, but also working together to give back to the community and creating a place where the youth of our city can come together to play.

Justin Timberlake has been announced as the headliner for Pepsi’s Super Bowl LII halftime show next year. Revealed on NBC’s broadcast of Sunday Night Football before kickoff between the New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons. The pop star also made his own announcement, in a quick 21-second skit with long-time friend Jimmy Fallon. It will be the 36-year old’s return to the Super Bowl half time show since his infamous 2004 performance with Janet Jackson. Dubbed “Nipplegate.” While doing the song “Rock Your Body” with Janet Jackson 13 years ago, the pair ended their set with Justin pulling off a part of Jackson’s costume, revealing her right breast. After huge backlash in the media and the NFL condeming the performance, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) implemented a five-second delay during live TV performances thereafter.

Returning for a second time, Timberlake joins an iconic list of past performers that include Michael Jackson, Madonna, Diana Ross, Prince, U2, The Rolling Stones, Beyoncé, Katy Perry, Bruno Mars, Coldplay and last year’s performer Lady Gaga. The 2018 NFL Super Bowl takes place on February 4, at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
