Web Extras

Hugh Hefner, the iconic founder of Playboy magazine who embodied the lifestyle he promoted has died. He passed away Wednesday at the Playboy mansion in Los Angeles. Playboy and provocateur, Hugh Hefner wanted to make the world a happier, sexier place and launched his Playboy fortune with an $8,000 investment. Hefner sold his beloved playboy mansion for a $100M in 2016 on the condition that he be allowed to live there for the rest of his life. Celebrities including Jenny McCarthy and Kim Kardashian West tweeting out their condolences, both ladies were on the cover of the magazine. Hefner is survived by his wife, Crystal, his sons, Cooper, David and Marston, and daughter, Christie. He was 91.

It looks like Justin Timberlake may be ready to return to a Super Bowl half-time show. Reports say the singer will take part in Pepsi’s Super Bowl 52 show in Minneapolis this coming February. If Timberlake is headlining the show, his return will come more than a decade after his part in Janet Jackson’s infamous wardrobe malfunction.  The FCC fined CBS $550,000 for the snafu. But a federal appeals court threw it out.
