Brandy Clark’s “Stripes” Featured in Beats Super Bowl Commercial

If you thought you heard a familiar song on a commercial break during yesterday’s Super Bowl, you were right. Brandy Clark‘s single “Stripes” was featured in the Beats Music Super Bowl Commercial, which put a spin on the classic “The Tree Bears” fairy tale.

The commercial features Ellen DeGeneres breaking into an apartment in “The Woods” complex in hopes of finding “the perfect music to dance to.” “Stripes” was featured as “Mama Bear’s” music.

“I can’t believe it!” Clark exclaimed upon receiving the news. “I am so excited about the commercial and about representing such a cool brand like Beats, and then you throw in that the commercial is airing during the Super Bowl where my home state team is playing and it features Ellen…somebody pinch me!”

Clark added, “My brother called and said, ‘sis, did you ever think that the Broncos would be playing the Seahawks in the Super Bowl and that you would be singing in a commercial that would be played during the game?’ My brother grew up a huge Broncos fan and I have always been a big Seahawks fan. I asked if he was still pulling for the Broncos and he said, ‘oh no we’re all about the Seahawks now!’”

CMA Awards Favorite Moments

Blake and Miranda

Another CMA Awards night has come and gone, but certain moments left lasting impressions on our staff. If you follow us on Twitter, you know we spent the majority of the show cracking on Sheryl Crow‘s hair, Dolly Parton‘s assets, Zac Brown Band‘s beards, and Kacey Musgraves‘ b****y resting face. While those particular things set the stage for our jokes, puns, and #sarcastictweets, our staff compiled a list of our other favorite moments of the night. The following are those award show memories that are ingrained in our minds:

VIDEO: Taylor Swift And Zac Efron Sing To Ellen

Taylor Swift may be country music’s super-star solo act, but if she ever wants to do a due, she may have found herself a suitable singer.

Taylor joined “The Lorax” co-star Zac Efron on today’s Ellen DeGeneres Show.  Naturally, the two were there to talk about their movie, but where there’s Taylor, there are tunes.  In this case, Swift and Efron (who did plenty of singing in Disney’s “High School Musical” movies) sang a special serenade for Ellen.

Was the song improvised?  Probably not.  Is it funny?  Absolutely!

Luke Bryan’s Stint as Ellen’s CMA Correspondent

Luke Bryan.

Luke Bryan definitely turned heads during his performance of “Country Girl (Shake It For Me)” last night at the CMA Awards, but he also made his presence known on the red carpet. Luke was Ellen Degeneres’ Red Carpet Correspondent and he had some pretty big shoes to fill thanks to the hilarious Kellie Pickler, last year’s host, but he more than managed to live up to expectations.

Check out his full coverage after the jump, during which he claims to wear Tim McGraw’s underwear, sings with Rascal Flatts, and makes an inappropriate comment about Reba McEntire’s cleavage.
