Chesney Is Single, Brown Hasn’t Met Ex-Girlfriend

This week Star Magazine featured photos of ESPN college football sideline reporter Jenn Brown and Kenny Chesney together on a beach in Cancun.

In a companion piece with the photos, Star’s headline screamed: “Kenny Chesney, Caught Cheating!

With his longtime girlfriend (pageant queen Amy Colley) at home in Tennessee, Kenny Chesney jets off on a hot Mexican getaway with ESPN sportscaster Jenn Brown!

Later in the Star piece, we get this:

An eyewitness said, “They (Chesney and Brown) definitely looked like lovers, like they didn’t have a care in the world.”

The same couldn’t be said of Kenny’s girlfriend, Amy. “She was livid when she found out about the trip!” an insider reveals.

“She feels totally humiliated because she knows Jenn. The three even hung out together before! Amy feels that Jenn has been chasing after Kenny even though she knew he was in a relationship.”

Such a sad story. If only it were true.

Chesney: “I would love to do Super Bowl halftime”

Earlier today I wrote that Kenny Chesney was in Miami last week “lobbying” to play Super Bowl halftime at the 2011 game at Cowboys Stadium in Dallas.

Source: Chesney ‘Lobbying’ For 2011 Super Bowl

UPDATE (6:50p ET): Turns out Chesney said last Friday that he wanted the gig.

Speculation is already heating up in the music industry about who will be the 2011 Super Bowl halftime musical act at Cowboys Stadium in Dallas.

Before I get to the candidates, let me clarify exactly who will make the call on the halftime show: Charles Coplin, Vice President of Programming for the NFL and Lawrence Randall, the NFL’s director of programming. (Believe it or not, 2011 Super Bowl host Jerry Jones will have very little influence on who gets the gig.)

Coplin talked about the Super Bowl halftime show to Reuters last week, including his criteria for selecting the act:

“We stay away from overexposed acts. When was the last time you saw the Who on TV? We like acts whose songs are very familiar to people of all ages, all demographics.

“There are other acts who do wonderful things and their music is tremendous, but it’s not always as anthemic and explosive, and when you’re doing something like the Super Bowl, those two words are really vital parts of making a show come to life.”

So who will be privileged the gig at Cowboys Stadium? My source said it’s a virtual lock that the NFL will go country for the big game in Dallas next February. To the end, I was also provided the five most likely candidates.

Livestrong Cancer Hoax Ends In Woman’s Suicide

One of the blogosphere’s most prominent cancer fighters was “Jonathan Jay White,” a 15-year-old (here’s his Blogger profile) who was “diagnosed with Anaplastic Astrocytoma [[Brain Cancer]].” The fact that we’re using quotation marks so liberally should be a dead giveaway that something is wrong. Also, so is the headline.

(Given all this, who’s the real kid in this picture? He can’t be happy about his likeness being used like this, right?)

White’s prominence and medical condition led many to lend their support to his predicament. A fund was set up to help pay for his treatment, he received gifts like a signed guitar from Kenny Chesney & a skateboard from Tony Hawk, and the Livestrong foundation even took up the cause. When White was supposed to undergo surgery, however, the bizarre truth came out: he didn’t exist.

Country Star Loves NFL, Really Loves NFL Players

Kenny Chesney loves football. Not as much as he loves Peyton Manning, but it’s close. Yesterday, the country music star made his second straight appearance at Saints’ training camp.

Kenny Chesney works out with Saints

And because he’s head coach Sean Payton’s good buddy, Chesney not only got a practice jersey (it even had his name on it!), but he also got to work out with the first team, something Reggie Bush hasn’t always been able to say. In addition to fielding punts and catching passes from quarterback Drew Brees, we also learned that Chesney has a fondness for helping grown men undress.
