111 million people tune in last night to watch the Superbowl, which is a new record. The Packer took home their 4th Superbowl win. Capping one of the greatest postseasons for any quarterback, Rodgers led the Packers to their first NFL championship in 14 years on Sunday, 31-25 over the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Packers reclaimed the Vince Lombardi Trophy, named for their legendary coach who won the first two Super Bowls and is making his own star turn in New York these days in the play named after him.

Ever wondered what Taylor Swift jams to when she's driving around town? Or taking a shower? Or hanging out with buddies?
This piece of information could have well remained a mystery to all of us--but, the good folks at Nashville radio station 107.5 The River managed to get it out of the superstar.
While visiting the station, Swift was invited to play "program director" and announce a song of her choice. Her selection? Not country! She chose "Super Bass" by Nicki Minaj.
"I really freak my friends out because I can recite every single lyric to the rap," Swift boasted to the DJ.
Of course, after having made that claim, she was taken to task to prove it!
Swift demurred, saying "No...that's for the car," but finally after some prodding busted out with a bit of Her Minajesty's lines.
The best part? She seemed actually a bit embarrassed after she did it. I have to say, it's totally adorable to see one of pop culture's most famous names, who's performed in front of gazillions of people a million times--and even rapped with T-Pain at the 2009 CMT Awards!--go all red in the face over a mere bit of rhymin'. Watch for yourselves!
