Can Bruce Springsteen get you out of school? In some parts of the country, yes.
Michael, a fifth grader in Philadelphia, had The Boss sign a note excusing him from school to attend a fan meet-and-greet at the library.
Michaels Dad tells the story: "My son said, `Bruce, would you sign my absence note?' [Springsteen] lit up. He was affectionate toward Michael as soon as he saw him. He said, `I have to read it first, that's how I got in trouble with my first contract,' " Mike said. "He said, `I hope you don't get in trouble.' My son was very starstruck — it was a very cool experience."
The Cleveland Cavaliers won the 2016 NBA Championship, and team owner Dan Gilbert has decided to give championship rings to just about everybody.
The players and coaches obviously get rings, but now the janitors, concession staff, and ushers at Quicken Loans Arena are all getting them.
I have a friend that did the arena announcing for a WNBA team, and I remember thinking it was weird when he told me that he got a championship ring when they won. After hearing this though I think it's kind of cool!
I am impressed Rolling Stone got people to agree on this.
The magazine asked actors, writers, producers, critics, and showrunners—even getting Garry Marshall's picks before he died in July—with absolutely any show eligible. So, what are the top TV shows of all time?
You'll notice the lack of casting diversity (mostly white males), about a 50/50 comedy/drama split and the fact the top 3 shows are all dramas - a genre known for deeper character development.
This certainly isn't the first time a musician has had a college course based on them, but it often happens long after the performer is dead.
The University of Texas at San Antonio is offering a class that analyzes race, gender and social class in Beyoncé's Lemonade. The course is called "Black Women, Beyoncé & Popular Culture."
Easy A? Not according to the professor who wrote, "Studying race, gender, class and pop culture theory is incredibly fun… and incredibly hard. Do an internal check for your maturity and ability to handle such a self-directed course. There is no shame in deciding you are not ready."
This isn't the first college class about Queen Bey - Rutgers University offered a class called "Politicizing Beyoncé" earlier this year.
The rest of the cast aren't people you've heard of, but I'm sure photos of them in costume will roll out soon. There's no doubt that Britney's life has had enough drama for several movies, so even if this is done poorly it ought to be pretty entertaining!
Britney is not involved with the movie and has not endorsed it in any way.
