Will Lady Gaga Play the Super Bowl Halftime Show? 

Christopher Polk/Getty ImagesWhich pop star has a show that's big enough, and filled with enough spectacle, and enough hits, to warrant a spot on the Super Bowl halftime show?  If you said Lady Gaga, you may be right.

Sources tell Billboard that Gaga is "in talks" to perform at Super Bowl 51, which will take place February 5, 2017 in Houston.  Gaga performed the national anthem at the Super Bowl earlier this year, and according to Billboard, the NFL was pretty impressed with her performance.

Of course, the NFL won't confirm anything at this point, except to tell Billboard, "At this point we do not have a final decision...we’re happy there is so much excitement about the show."

Gaga has said that she's going to release her new album "really soon."  Her new single, "Perfect Illusion," just came out.

Earlier this year, Adele claimed the NFL asked her to perform at the Super Bowl, but she turned it down.  The NFL denied making a formal offer to the singer.

David Bowie's Ashes Not Spread at Burning Man, Says Son

Jimmy KingContrary to reports, David Bowie's ashes were not scattered in the Burning Man temple at last week's Burning Man gathering in the Black Rock Desert of Nevada.

Bowie's son, Duncan Jones, took to Twitter to dismiss claims that an unidentified goddaughter of his father brought his ashes to the arts gathering in the Nevada desert over Labor Day weekend.

"That Burning Man thing? What people will do & say for attention never ceases to amaze me," he wrote. "Not true. Kind of a gross claim as well. *sigh*"

Jones later wrote with a wink that if his father's were to be spread anywhere, it would be at Butlins Skegness, an old-fashioned and some would say tacky coastal vacation development in England.

The rumor started when an insider claimed that Bowie's wife Iman gave the singer's godchild permission to take a portion of his ashes to the festival.

Bowie died in January at the age of 69 after an 18-month battle with cancer.

Duos Dominate Top of the "Billboard" Hot 100

Frank ApollonioThe Chainsmokers and Twenty One Pilots are holding down the #1 and #2 spots on the Billboard Hot 100 this week, which means they've managed a feat which no other musical duos have done in more than 31 years.

As Billboard notes, the last time two musical duos had the top two spots on the chart was back in June of 1985, when Tears for Fears was #1 with "Everybody Wants to Rule the World," and Wham! -- George Michael's old group -- was #2 with "Everything She Wants."

The only other time this was ever done was in 1984, when Wham!'s "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go" and "Out of Touch" by Daryl Hall and John Oates were numbers one and two, respectively.

Elsewhere on the chart,  Adele's "Send My Love (to Your New Lover)" reaches a new high, climbing to #8, and Charlie Puth scores his second top-10 hit as a lead artist, thanks to "We Don't Talk Anymore," featuring Selena Gomez.

Israel Houghton Talks About His Romantic Proposal in Paris to "The Real"'s Adrienne Bailon

Jason Davis/Getty ImagesIsrael Houghton has found his "once-in-a-lifetime woman" in The Real's Adrienne Bailon -- and was excited to go into detail about his Parisian marriage proposal to his bride-to-be on the daytime talk show Monday. 

Houghton said that he and Adrienne were on a private boat ride in Paris. "I asked the captain -- because the light's sparkled on the Eiffel Tower every hour for five minutes -- I said toward the end of that, make sure we're right by the tower," recalled Houghton.

"She was looking out the window. I said 'Turn around,'" he added before Adrienne jumped in enthusiastically to finish his sentence and give her side of the romantic story. 

Houghton and Bailon were criticized by some for getting engaged after only six-months of dating, as well as dating soon after Houghton's divorce from his ex-wife of twenty years, Meleasa Houghton.

Fans Band Together to Get Nelly Out of Debt

ABC/Kelsey McNealIt's getting hot in herre for Nelly -- with the rapper owing a $2.4 million dollar tax debt, reportsBillboard

However, Nelly's loyal fans came together Tuesday to support the entertainer on Twitter, with the #HotInHerreStreamingParty hashtag. The hashtag was created for fans and other Twitter users to listen to the artist's hit single, "Hot in Herre" on repeat, in the hopes of raising money for the Grammy winner.  

Nelly's tax lien, which was filed in August, covers unpaid taxes since 2013 -- and failure to pay the full amount will lead to a seizing of his property and assets by the IRS.  

What does this mean for Nelly fans in support of the entertainer? 287,176,547 streams of "Hot in Herre" in order to help pay his debt in full. Of course, while that might raise the cash, Nelly would still be liable for new taxes on that new income.
