      10 Super Bowl Halftime Show Stages: Ranking the Platforms of Madonna, Beyoncé, Bruno Mars and More ...

      The Super Bowl Halftime Show often benefits from a great performance onstage. Sometimes. But knowing the much of the audio is prerecorded kind of takes some of the fun out of it. That's why more often than not our final verdict on the big game's big entertainment (especially in recent years) had revolved more around the stage-show than the music itself. Nothing is more important to a stage-show than a stage.

This isn't a ranking of the performances, but of the platform that held it. Read this

    US Government Is Trying to Prevent 'Sex Slave' Virginia Roberts From Making Prince Andrew Testify Under Oath

    When Virginia Roberts decided to join the U.S. government's civil case against convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein it completely blew the lid off of a major scandal. Epstein took a plea deal in late 2007 that at the time seemed to protect the high profile clients that he sold young girls to for sex. Roberts was one of those girls and has in the last month begun naming names. Prince Andrew is supposedly one of the men that she had sex with when she was just 17-years-old. The royals have dodged accepting paperwork that would require Andrew testify under oath but now it looks like the U.S. government just put up a huge roadblock in the case.Read more »
