There have been many times in the past where a TV show will use an older song which winds up popping back up on Billboard’s Hot 100. It happened with Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing,” after the series finale of The Sopranos. With Billboard now allowing YouTube videos to effect the Hot 100, viral videos are now doing the same.
Connecticut teenager, Peter Swindell, who is the kicker for his high school football team is 54 for 58 on extra points and seven of nine on other field goals this season. In the video he puts the ball on the floor, spins it with his feet, and then kicks about a twenty yard field goal.
An Alabama motorcycle officer has turned in his badge after a video of the officer drag racing a street bike at two consecutive red lights was posted on YouTube on Sunday. In the video the man, identified as Lawrence Lee Spillers, pulls up to the red light and starts talking to the officer. Just before the light turns green he asks the officer if he wants to race, to which the officer replies “I got turbo,” before the two sped off. They then pull up to a red light, when the officer tells him he can try again, and either “on three,” or “on green,” before the two sped off for a second time.
I’m not sure why this happened, but I surely wish it didn’t. Taylor Swift was on Froggy Radio and decided that it would be a good idea to cover Eminem‘s “Lose Yourself,” from the soundtrack to his 8 Mile movie.
Have you ever wondered what it’s like to work in radio? Or even asked why your local radio station doesn’t play your favorite song? Maybe you’re an artist looking for your big break, trying to figure out how to get that done. I was fortunate enough to take part in a documentary that tried to answer some of those questions. Don’t Change That Station: A Radio Documentary was done by BackDoor2VIP.com and takes the perspective of Indie, Top 40, and Hip Hop radio stations to seek those answers.
Man oh man, has any artist had a fall from grace, worse than Earl Simmons, better known as DMX?
Between 1999 and 2000 X was on top of the world (and the charts) but in recent years he can’t seem to stay out of trouble. Between all of his arrests ranging from impersonating a police officer, to driving under the influence, and everything in between.
Well over the weekend DMX decided to do his best Will Ferrell impression from Old School and go streaking in a Detroit hotel.
Although I’m 1000% sure that this setup, but it’s still funny as hell. This whole “twerking” crazy really took off after Miley Cyrus posted her twerk video to J Dash’s “Wop.” We’ll now girls (and even some guys) are listing twerk videos in YouTube, this one doesn’t end well; a broken table and a girl on fireeeeeeeeeee (Alicia Keys voice).
64 year old Diana Nyad is the definition of perseverance, after four failed attempts over 35 years to become the first person to swim from Cuba to the United States without a shark cage she finally completed the task today! Her previous attempts ended in; being attacked by jellyfish, having an asthma attack, and getting stuck in a lightning storm, but today she finally completed the mission. And she has one message for people all over the world, DON’T GIVE UP! The final moments of the swim were caught on camera, and we’ve got it for you!
Those internet nerds are back at it again haha. After scouring the internet and making mashups of President Obama‘s speeches and making him jam out to Carle Rae Jepsen‘s “Call Me Maybe,” and LMFAO‘s “Sexy and I Know It,” now former President Bill Clinton has received the mashup treatment as well with Robin Thicke’s smash single “Blurred Lines.”
Looks like everybody’s favorite emo Canadian rapper, Drake, got a taste of his own medicine last night when he tried enter the locker room after the Miami Heat won their second consecutive NBA title, and was turned away. #NoNewFriends
LOL, all these people talking about #NoNewFriends are buggin, most of my old friends suck ass…. LMFAO I'm not sayin' I'm just sayin LMFAO

It seems as the story goes, a Providence Rhode Island woman’s daughter was killed at a graduation party and the teen who shot her daughter had just turned himself in and the news reporters went to her house for comment. Well we CLEARLY can’t take the story by the video, as we don’t know what may have been edited out of the video to make it seems as if the woman was at fault.
While over in England promoting the release of their new movie After Earth, Will and Jaden Smith along with DJ Jazzy Jeff, were guests on BBC’s The Graham Norton Show. After their interview they did a little rapping, and a little bit of dancing when they brought out special guest Alfonso Ribeirio AKA Carlton Banks from The Fresh Prince of Bel Air. The only question I have to ask is what was he doing there? Does he really not have anything to do these days or did he happen to be in England as well? I need answers LOL, either way they did the “Carlton dance,” as well as dancing to Sugar Hill Gang’s “Jump on It,” the dance most of us know from this:
Will & Jaden Smith jam out with “Carlton Banks:”
A news anchor in North Dakota has been suspended over cussing on live TV over the weekend. A.J. Clemente of KFYR-TV in Bismarck opened his first telecast by saying, “Fuckin’ shit!” That’s right, Clemente’s first day anchoring ended with a suspension over his huge mistake.
A Texas woman, must have seen the popularity of Sweet Brown and had that in mind when describing a recent hailstorm there. She was very animated in describing the hail, which she says was the size of a quarter. KAPOOYAH KAPOOYAH!
