The DirecTV Super Bowl party hosted by Mark Cuban with performances by Rihanna and Kanye West was the place to be on Saturday night in Phoenix, so naturally Dish Nation was there.
Rihanna performed fan favorites like “Umbrella” , “Rude Boy” , “We Found Love” and more, and then West surprised everyone when he joined Rihanna to perform their hits “All of the Lights” and “Run This Town.” Kim Kardashian‘s hubby also sang a few of his top singles like “Flashing Lights” and “Jesus Walks” — leaving party-goers to wonder until the last minute if Paul McCartney would join him on stage for his latest single “Only One” — but the rumor was false and McCartney was a no-show.
Kim was of course cheering her man on during his performance from a private VIP balcony with new BFF’s John Legend and Chrissy Teigen, and the foursome celebrated after with a double date at… The Waffle House!?!
Maybe during Cuban’s trip to Cuba he can spread the word about his new app, too.
“It’s a little app called Cyber Dust. If you post something on Twitter, haters come out…like screaming in public square, the middle of town, whatever you’re thinking. They get credit for giving you a hard time,” Cuban explained of his free, fully encrypted app in which messages are deleted forever after 24 seconds.
“With Cyber Dust it’s an app based on privacy. You can talk one-on-one or followers like on Twitter, but when you post something on Cyber Dust only your followers see it and when they reply, only the person who posted it sees it. No trolls. A lot more honesty and community. What Twitter wanted to be. We’ve got a lot of people from YouTube and Instagram jumping on, wanting to bring their followers over. It’s crushing it.
“They can reply private or publicly, it’s their choice — no haters on there.”
Dish also caught up with former Undisputed World Champion, Evander Holyfield — who is still in amazing shape.
Holyfield just did a compelling new anti-road rage PSA commercial and told Dish, “I did it because it’s important for people to stay in their cars. You gotta be crazy hitting my car like that,” he joked.
And it turns out former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver, Michael Irvin, is a Swiftie.
“I love her, but I don’t sing her,” Irvin admitted of Taylor Swift.
“I listen to her music. I rarely listen to music — I’m running out of time so I can’t [spend] a bunch of time listening to music, so it’s ruining my precious time, but I can’t focus on it because I only have this much time and Taylor isn’t gonna help me!”
But most excited to see Dish Nation on the blue carpet was our self-proclaimed “number one fan,” Charm City Cakes founder and Ace of Cakes star, Duff Goldman — who apparently has a crush on our female Dallas hosts, Jenna Owens and Kellie Rasberry.
Duff, 40, has a new shows premiering on the Food Network, Duff Till Dawn — but we had more important questions for the king of sugar, like, Hostess or Little Debbie?
“Here’s the thing, when I was competing on Iron Chef…very serious culinary competition, made this thing, laid it out, filled it with chocolate and chiles, said that it was a beef chocolate ding dong. So, Little Debbie,” he dished.
“But in the nuclear war, Twinkies are the savior of mankind.”
