About a month ago, Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder performed Bruce Springsteen’s My City Of Ruins at the Kennedy Center Honors. It was BREATHTAKING!!! That live performance has just been released as a single and can be bought through Pearl Jam’s Ten Club and at iTunes for 99 cents, with all proceeds going to Artists for Peace and Justice Haiti Relief!! How cool is that?!

If you are not yet convinced and haven’t yet rushed to iTunes to buy the single, maybe this will convince you:

Vedder performing My City Of Ruins — LOVE IT!!

OMG — this has to be the most ridiculous accusation ever, but what wouldn’t people do for their 15sec of fame?!?!

Remember that creepy old man, Larry Platt, on American Idol that sang the now viral hit “Pants On The Ground”??

Well, apparently the Green Brothers recorded and copyrighted a song back in 1996 called “Back Pockets on the Floor” that is almost identical to “Pants On The Ground”. The Green Bros. claim their rap was the original, posting (along with the below video for their own song) “This is in regards to the General Larry Platt ‘Pants on The Ground.’ His song is a takeoff of the Green Brothers song ‘Back Pockets On The Floor.’ The General’s song have the same intent, idea and in part the same message.” Ayayaille…

Check it out:

YOU BE THE JUDGE!!!

All I can say is that, either way, I would not be proud to have written that song! haha It’s horrible!!

Michael Jackson’s kids are getting the sweetest allowance ever!

Paris, Prince and Blanket just got their allowance upped — from $60,000! Really??? Apparently, the accounts guardian and lawyers underestimated their monthly expenses & requested the increase! What are they spending on!!! That’s 20,000$ each a month!!! Can you imagine?!

What happenned to working for your allowance?! Washing cars, slinging newspapers on front porches?! lol What did you have to do for your little allowance?! Among your friends, who had the highest allowance and how much was it?!

***** In other news, Prince and Paris are rumored to be making an appearance at this Sunday’s Grammys’ Special Merit Awards ceremony to accept a Lifetime Achievement Award for their father. A video of the award presentation is expected to be shown at the Grammys.

Boxoffice is straightforward; you have this weekly Top 10 list of returns, you compare each movie to the other movies and voila!!! Yet one respect in which boxoffice reporting is pretty odd – it emphasizes ticket grosses yet rarely mentions ticket sales. That would be like always reporting how many ad dollars sold off “Lost” and not mentioning the number of viewers that actually watched the show. Isn’t that weird…

So “Avatar” might be The Biggest Movie of All Time based on grosses ($1.859 billion and counting), it’s important to remember how rising ticket prices skew the returns… so if we look at number of tickets sold, here’s the Top 20 movies of all time:

1 “Gone With the Wind” (1939) 202,044,600
2 “Star Wars” (1977) 178,119,600
3 “The Sound of Music” (1965) 142,415,400
4 “E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial” (1982) 141,854,300
5 “The Ten Commandments” (1956) 131,000,000
6 “Titanic” (1997) 128,345,900
7 “Jaws” (1975) 128,078,800
8 “Doctor Zhivago” (1965) 124,135,500
9 “The Exorcist” (1973) 110,568,700
10 “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” (1937) 109,000,000
11 “101 Dalmatians” (1961) 99,917,300
12 “The Empire Strikes Back” (1980) 98,180,600
13 “Ben-Hur” (1959) 98,000,000
14 “Return of the Jedi” (1983) 94,059,400
15 “The Sting” (1973) 89,142,900
16 “Raiders of the Lost Ark” (1981) 88,141,900
17 “Jurassic Park” (1993) 86,205,800
18 “The Graduate” (1967) 85,571,400
19 “Star Wars: Episode I” (1999) 84,825,800
20 “Fantasia” (1941) 83,043,500

“Avatar,” despite topping the worldwide gross list, by and by, is only No. 26 on the ticket sales list with 76,421,000 sold … at least, so far…

Seriously?!

Apple could not come up with a better name for their new tablet?? iPad?!?! You gotta be kidding me!

I am ready to bet that there was not one lady on the panel deciding what to name Apple’s latest gadget… or if there was, it was the type of lady who hasn’t heard of tampons and thinks this new tablet can be brought everywhere/stored in a purse like a sanitary pad can!!! Come on!!!

So many are commenting and laughing at the new name — here are some great tweets I’ve read: “Please don’t release a Max version — Max iPad, get it?!?!” hahaha Our very own Jay tweeted: “Ipad huh? People who live in Fargo are going to be very, very confused”. Hilarious!

What do you think!? What comes to mind when you think iPad?!
