Every year, for the last 5, I've posted a blog of my favorite songs for the previous 365-ish days. Music is a big part of my life, and I imagine it is yours as well if you're reading this.

It's gone from Live Journal (my earliest of blogs were on there), to myspace, facebook/blogger. I toyed with just posting all of the individual videos on my facebook...but lets face it, with that many videos, half of you would unfollow me, and I don't want that!

In years prior, I've attempted to put it into some form of a countdown. I don't really have the time to try and figure that all out this year, and furthermore, it's incredibly difficult to narrow it down to one favorite.
Advice? Don't ever ask someone in radio their favorite song. They have hundreds.
In fact, it'd be easier for me to tell you the songs we play that I DON'T like.

This list isn't just songs you've heard on Q92 though. Obviously I'm a big fan of pop music, but I like some alt rock as well and you'll see some of those bands and songs represented here.

Alright, enough drivel, here it is, in NO order whatsoever...Robbie's 50 Big Mack's of 2010!

What better place to start than with the artist I most wanted to spend a night doing naughty things to in 2010?
K-Money is a freak, but she's fun as hell and very random, which is why I dig her so much. She had a slew of HUGE hits this year and can easily be named an 'artist of the year'...but in my opinion, this was her best track. I like your beard.

The year of the comeback? It was for a lot of artists. Eminem included. He put out some real crap the last few years. I mean let's be honest...Crack A Bottle, We Made You...NOT his best work at all. How do you redeem yourself? Write a song that says "wow, I let you guys down, I'm not gonna do that s**t no more!"
It's a very inspirational song too. Em is good at those. "For all those who look down on me, I'm tearing down your balcony"
Eminem will appear more later, so that's all for now. Here's the vid:

Well who DOESN'T wanna be a Billionaire? Ahh Travie Travie...I'll admit, I was a big fan of this song when it first came out but kind of lost faith in it. Perhaps it was Travie's behavior when we brought him to town with We The Kings. That soured me on Travie a little. But, at one point, it was one of my fav songs so I think it has to make the list.

Let's move into new artists that made their mark in 2010. And this guy left a BIG one. Hailing from the state of Michigan and this song was really starting to break when I was there back in June. On warped tour this year and I hear from several people that he's an awesome dude to hang with. He also posts some funny sh** on his Facebook and Twitter accounts!
His huge hit from this year...

I really struggled on whether I wanted to go with Telephone or Bad Romance. A reason to go with Telephone would be the video. It's over 9 minutes long and it brought something to music videos that's been missing, quite frankly, since the 80's. That is, making the video into mini-movies and elaborate productions.
However, I prefer this song and think its her best to date.

I've been a Lifehouse fan all the way back to their first, and still biggest hit, Hanging By A Moment a decade ago. If you've never seen them in concert, you really should check them out. They give more than 100% and you'll for sure get your money's worth. I also had the pleasure of taking some Q92 winners to a private, acoustic set and meet-n-greet back in April when they came thru Cleveland. Check out those pics on the Q92 Facebook page (they're in their own album)

We played alot of the Muse song Uprising at Q92 this year. This song is SO very different from that one. I'm not saying I don't like Uprising, just that they are different. I'd call Muse a 'rock opera' and I suppose I'm a fan of that. Obviously. This song was on repeat constantly this summer. I LOVE it. If I had to pick a top 5, this would go into it. Crank it LOUD

It will go down as being a song FULL of those wonderfully CLASSIC lines. Also memorable because Samantha Severo would drunk text me many of these lines between Midnight and 2am on any given Friday or Saturday night in the first 6 months of the year :)

We've got alot of love for this band at Q92. I remember driving to Michigan back in December 2006 to see All-American Rejects, and Boys Like Girls were the 3rd opener. I'd never heard of them. Flash-forward to my first summer here at Q92 in June 2007 and we brought them in for our first Graduation Invasion. I don't think any of us will ever forget Paul and Martin sitting on stools in the middle of a street in a residential neighborhood in North Canton.
I auditioned on another radio station this year for a job I (obviously) did not get. That station is WIOG in Saginaw/Bay City/Flint, Michigan. And they had just announced this band as the headliner for their summer show before my audition. 10k people backed in a minor-league baseball stadium. A long way from the street in North Canton!

You probably best remember him for his song "Say Hey (I Love You)" from last summer, but he put out another super-fun summer song this year too. Great music to drive to!

If it wasn't for Katy Perry's California Gurls, this probably would have been the song of the summer. "Most lyrics used as a facebook status in 2010" would have to go to this song as well. It seemed about May and June, everyone had "Could we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars..." as their status!
This would also probably go into my top 5 songs if I were going to do a top 5. It finished at #4 for the year on Q92. You guys are certainly fans of this!

Let's completely change gears and genres here. I like Rise Against a lot. Just as their song "Audience Of One" was on my 2009 list, they appear again this year with one of my favorite rock songs of the year.

This song was a bigger hit on Q92 than it was in some other parts of the country. It finishes inside our top 20 for the year. We packed a few hundred people onto the patio at Pete's downtown Canton on a sunny, hot August afternoon for our most-energetic show we did all year!

I know a few people are surprised I like this song. I had their song "Jars" on my 2009 list, and while I don't find this one as good as that one, it's still worthy of a spot on my 2010 list. Another great song to drive to.

I'm very much a fan of rock bands with female lead singers. Paramore is probably the most well-known, Hey Monday would be included...and Flyleaf. Flyleaf is a little more 'rock' where the other 2 are a bit more pop, but Lacey has SUCH powerful vocals. This is such a great song!

If I recall correctly, this was our first 'bigger name' we brought to Canton for a show back in April. It was still cold! Kevin was one of the coolest guys we've had in too, completely chill and I'm pretty sure the dude knows how to party. It was an acoustic performance COMPLETELY unlike the original song (in a good way), plus I met a few cool people at that show who I still talk to today.
Video from our Q92 performance of his first hit, Let It Rock

Hellooooooo DANCE MUSIC! By the end of 2010, dance music had absolutely exploded in pop music. But Taio Cruz was one of the guys who really got it started early this year with this huge song (our #7 for the year on Q92)

Probably need to slow it down after the last few songs. And this one was slowing it down for Eddie Vedder and his veteran rock band Pearl Jam in 2010.

Hey, this is my countdown and I didn't say they had to be hits. Does anyone even remember this song? Dan Black was one of the very first Stripped Down shows we did this year. I know it was still cold as we were inside at The Pub. The remix features Cleveland's Kid Cudi, who I really hope has a huge 2011. He's a great rapper and I'd love to see some new-school rap come out of Cleveland.

I struggled on which 30STM song deserved to be up here on the list. Kings and Queens was a huge hit early in the year, but the song was actually released in 2009. And I LOVE their new song, Closer To The Edge, but the record company is now working that song to pop radio, which means it could land on a 2011 list of mine. So we'll opt for their mid-year, #1 alternative rock song. Jared Leto and 30 Seconds To Mars...

Take an incredibly dramatic and powerful hook from Rihanna, and add some of Eminem's best and most-powerful lyics he's ever written, and what do you get? One of the best and biggest hits of his career for sure! A little inside radio info for you, we 'test' all of our songs, thru a few different sources. One of them is our "Q The Music" listener panel on our website. At one point in July and August, our top 3 songs were "Not Afraid", "Love The Way You Lie", and "Airplanes", and we'd never had scores come back as big as the score did on those 3 songs. We were playing one of those songs every 30 minutes! Not to mention the huge prize we gave away, 5 pairs of tix and hotel rooms to Eminem's sold out Detroit show. Em had one of his best years in 2010.

I like both of Lambert's singles he put out this year. I went with this one for my list because I played it the other day and decided I liked hearing that one better on the radio still. But it's close.
Here's the deal though. I like his music, I think he's a great performer...but I would never go see one of his concerts. What I'm about to say won't be very popular.
Look, everyone knows Adam Lambert is gay. And there is nothing wrong with that! Good for him, go for what makes you happy! But he feels the need to 'shock' people at his shows, by almost over-doing it and forcing it in your face. Why? I don't understand that at all.
Like I said, I DO like his music though!

Another fairly early entry into the year of dance. This was a banger in the spring....kinda disappointing you don't hear it much anymore. I think it's a great track!

Here's another one where I couldn't decide which song I wanted to use. I've had a few people tell me they've seen him do some acoustic stuff, and he plays with just as much soul and passion as his full-band performances. I'm a Ryan Star fan!


This song didn't get the chance to be the hit it deserved to be, perhaps in part due to California Gurls. Timbaland lays down another fantastic beat

This song was 'new music' in October across most of the country. It was new music on Q92 in June and was a big hit for us...finishing the year at #13 actually. A pretty-much unknown Jordan came to Canton in July for another Q92 show, this one featuring 2 acts (Hot Chelle Rae was there as well). Another show where I met some really cool people who are still in my life!
I also got to see them in Cleveland in October and their set was the best of the bands that night. Hopefully not a one-hit-wonder, we'll see what he's got in 2011!

I don't really have a reason to like this other than the beat and music is pretty cool. I guess the dude's voice is pretty cool too. :shrugs: Heh, that's all I got for this one!

There aren't many songs that are 'one listens' for me, to tell if they are hits or not. I usually have to hear them a few times. Not only did I NOT have to do that with this song, I was convinced by the first freakin' hook! Pink's salute to...the rest of us

The lead singer of Keane (I don't know his name and I don't feel like looking it up) has some unique, great pipes! I've always liked their stuff and when I saw they had a song out with K'Naan, I thought "ok, I'll check this out"...never expected Keane to drop a beat like this!! I'll bet most of you have never heard this song, but check it out, its actually quite good!

OLP puts out some powerful rock ballads. This is one of them

Rihanna had some big hits this year...Rude Boy, Only Girl (In The World), and she closes the year with What's My Name? still climbing. And while this one doesn't receive any love any more, it was everywhere to start 2010.

Thanks to a busy busy schedule, I didn't get to see many shows this year. But I did make it to Cleveland back in April to check out Lifehouse and this band, Daughtry. It was April fools day, and this first real warm day of the year. Had to be up into the 70's? Ashley remembers! HA, inside joke. Anyway, Daughtry is very high on my list (with Lifehouse too) of great live performers! Check them out if you get a chance...especially if you're a Daughtry fan, you won't be disappointed!
Their hit from late in the year...

Paramore is known to rock it out. So when they came with a ballad, I was skeptical. For quite a while actually. But this is a great song, lyrically, and the ladies love it...which is certainly not a bad thing! Hayley Williams and happier times, as they split up just 2 weeks ago.

At the same time "The Only Exception" was a hit at pop radio, this song was the hit at rock radio. From slow Paramore, to rockin' Paramore...

How true the lyrics are..."all the crazy sh** I did last night...those will be the best memories". David Guetta dropping hot beats, Cleveland's Cudi rockin' the mic!

Alright, I know Hey, Soul Sister is one of the biggest songs of the year...but I never liked it. Train 'wussed' out. Obviously it paid off for them in a huge way, so no problem with them doing that, and not that they were exactly hard to begin with. Drops Of Jupiter, Calling All Angels, and Ordinary are still the best songs by Train. But If It's Love was closer to the sound of Train from the old school. And I dig it!

Speaking of love, there is without a doubt, no better love song that Bruno Mars' "Just The Way You Are". Every guy should think of these words when he thinks of his girl. And ladies, if he doesn't, ditch him. Bruno Mars was on the hook's of "Nothin' On You" by B.o.B and "Billionaire" by Travie McCoy and you kinda went...ok, who IS this guy. Then he dropped this song. OHHH...THAT'S Bruno Mars! A very cool video too, if you've never checked it out! As long as he keeps the drugs down, he promises to have a long, successful run in music

A big hit on Q92 this fall, not so much in the rest of the country. The return of the guys that started the emo teen rock back in of our final Q92 Stripped Down shows of the year, on a 45 degree October day, outside on the patio at Pete's. FUNNY guys too, very cool dudes.

I've never been the biggest John Mayer fan. "Why, Georgia?" from like 2002 is still my favorite song from him, by a mile. I think it's fantastic. But Mr. Mayer finally found a way to put out some songs that *I* like again late last year. "Who Says" isn't bad, this song, Heartbreak Warfare, is better. Sadly, I think this song might be forgotten over time...which is too bad, really.

Again, it's my countdown, so I'm well aware that this song wasn't much of a hit, but I personally like it! And they have a new song coming for 2011 that's already getting some airplay on some big radio stations in Florida, so the year ahead looks to be good for them! Another artist Q92 brought in in 2010? Yes!

It's the year of the comeback, isn't it? Enrique, Eminem, Train...NELLY! FINALLY! I said thru much of 2008 and 2009...if only Nelly and Eminem could release some great songs like they used to in the early part of the decade. 2010? Done! While this is certainly much different than earlier Nelly, I'm still a fan. Excited to see what he bring in 2011.

PHOENIX - 1901
The trend for several years has been songs that start on TV. Mostly on hit TV shows, but every now and then a commercial spawns a hit. Hop in your Cadillac, and crank up some alt rock from Phoenix!

So here we are, 2010. Enrique Iglesias had some big hits in 2000, 2001. But he's attempted to put some songs out since then, and they never do ANYTHING. So when he teamed up with Pitbull for this one, the intial thinking is 'ok, it's alright, but it won't do much, it's Enrique IGLESIAS!'
Wrong. And, I'm sure most folks are glad to be proven wrong. This song still sounds GREAT on the radio and he's got another song climbing the charts right now. Welcome back, Enrique!

Song without hooks don't typically do well. Is there a hook here? I can't find it. It's still a great track and I'm glad to see LP getting some love on the pop charts. It's some needed rock in a world of dance beats at the moment.

A great, relaxing song from the summer. That's all I really have to say about it.

Lastly, Neon Trees. I'm disappointed that I missed them when we brought them into Canton back in June for various reasons. I remember the PD at one of the stations I auditioned for this summer, asking me what I thought. I told him we had just started playing it and he should put it on, sounds good on the air. He did a week later. And he still didn't hire me? Pshhh!
Again, like Linkin Park, a needed infusion of rock into the pop charts.
Look forward to hearing more from them next year!

It's been a GREAT year at Q92. We brought over 30 acts right here to Canton, and you got a chance to see them perform acoustic songs, you got autographs and pics from them. We gave away countless other concert tickets, trips to Detroit, shopping sprees to Westfield Belden Village. Our staff also enjoyed our highest ratings we've ever seen. It's exciting to be a part of all of that, and we love doing cool things for you guys. Join us in 2011, it's gonna be fun!
Happy New Year!

...on 2010. This will be the 2nd-to-last update of the year here on the blog. I'll post one more sometime in the next few days about some of my personal favorite songs of the year. But in its current form, this will be it for the year. The regular staff that updates the Robbie Mack blog will be taking some time off for the holidays.

I will post lots of links to fun and interesting things for sure...on my FB page!
Follow, if you don't yet!
Just a few stories today...check 'em out

If your car breaks down on the way to Christmas and you call Triple-A to come help you...I hope you're ready to be patient. Because it looks like they're going to be BUSY.

According to Triple-A, they plan on helping 1.4 MILLION stranded drivers in the U.S. in the next few weeks.
They're predicting about 320,000 dead batteries, 200,000 sets of keys locked in cars, 175,000 flat tires, 60,000 cars stuck in hundreds of thousands of random other problems.

If you want to do some hardcore shopping, you might as well go to a state where they laugh at you if you build a mall that's any smaller than 15 football fields.

"Forbes" just put out a list of America's top 10 cities for shopping, and the home of the Buckeyes made the list!

It isn't based on how fancy or stylish or hip a city's stores's based on options, ease, and price.

#1.) Houston, Texas
#2.) Dallas, Texas
#3.) Baltimore, Maryland
#4.) Columbus, Ohio
#5.) Indianapolis, Indiana
#6.) Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
#7.) Phoenix, Arizona
#8.) San Antonio, Texas
#9.) Jacksonville, Florida
#10.) San Diego, California

Every time Facebook launches a new feature on its site, it ALWAYS walks the line between "Wow, that's really cool" and "Oh my God, that kind of freaks me out." Their newest product is yet another example.

Facebook has announced that it's about to roll out facial recognition on your photos.

So when you upload a photo, instead of having to manually tag your friends, Facebook will analyze the faces in the photo, compare them to their billions of other photos, figure out who's in your photo, and automatically tag them.

CREEPY, right?

On the plus side, that will save you a ton of time...tagging people takes a while.

On the negative's pretty scary that Facebook knows what we all look like...and this, naturally, raises privacy issues.

Plus, as someone at CNBC won't love this when the cops upload a photo of you breaking the law...and have it auto-tagged to lead them right to you.

Of course, the people at Facebook don't see it that way. Their VP of Product, Chris Cox, says this is actually GOOD for privacy. Quote, "Every time a tag is created, it means that [you know about] a photo of you on the Internet."

There's no word exactly when this is going to go live on Facebook...for now, they're just saying "soon."

The Pew Internet and American Life Project just released the results of a massive survey to figure out what people from different age groups are doing online. Here are four of their most interesting findings.

#1.) Social media is growing. People 18 to 33 are most likely to use social networking sites...but their popularity is growing the fastest with people 74 and older. In the past two years, social networking is up 400% for people 74-plus.

#2.) Blogging is dying. Almost every online activity just keeps getting more popular...EXCEPT blogging. Only half as many teenagers have a blog as they did in 2006. And it's falling for all other age groups, too.

Blogging is mostly being replaced got it, social networking...instead of having a blog, people post status updates and photos on Facebook and Twitter now.

#3.) Online video and music are going way up. The number of people watching video online has gone up from 52% in 2008 to 66% today. For music, it's up to 51% today...back in 2004, it was 34%.

#4.) The top three activities online are the same across all age groups. For everyone 18 years and up, email is the most common activity...searching is second-most common...and looking for health info is third.

Remember a few years ago, when all of those new yogurts came out...and promised to make you healthier by MOVING YOUR BOWELS? Dannon's Activia was the biggest one.

They hired JAMIE LEE CURTIS as a spokeswoman and, basically, told us that if we ate this yogurt, besides getting our poopin' regulated, our digestion would be smoother and we'd be less likely to get sick. turns out that wasn't really true. The Federal Trade Commission has been looking into it and determined that Dannon was seriously exaggerating what the "probiotic" bacteria in Activia could do.

Under both state and federal law, products can only advertise themselves as health cures if they're actual can't advertise a food as a cure. The FTC also couldn't find legitimate scientific research or proof of Dannon's claims.

SO...they sued Dannon. Dannon settled, and will pay $21 MILLION to 39 states.

They're also banned from claiming that any yogurt or any other product can keep you from getting sick, cure digestive problems, or give you any other health benefits.

...cause I'm hungry at the moment. Here's some shtuff!

Everybody knows by now that JAKE GYLLENHAAL and TAYLOR SWIFT are together...even if they won't admit it. But in a new interview with "USA Today", Jake DID talk ever-so-briefly about the relationship.

He said, quote, "It's going to be a long, slow burn for me. I'm not rushing into anything."

Hmm. Interesting.

TOP "RE-TWEETS" (RT) OF 20-10...
In this world of fleeting electronic discourse, perhaps the best longevity a person can hope for is to Tweet something...and have millions of their followers RE-TWEET it.

With that in mind, here are the 10 Most Re-Tweeted Tweets of 2010...

#1.) Stephen Colbert: "In honor of oil-soaked birds, 'tweets' are now 'gurgles'."

#2.) Drake: "We always ignore the ones who adore us, and adore the ones who ignore us."

#3.) Lil Wayne: "Aaaaaaahhhhhhmmmmm baaaaakkkkkkkkkk!" (Posted after he got out of prison, obviously. AMAZING that so many people RT'd this, seriously.)

#4.) Justin Bieber: "Te quiero mucho mi amor." (It means, "I love you very much, my love"...and your daughter will probably tell you it was a message DIRECTLY TO HER.)

#5.) Al-Qaeda: "Just noticed Twitter keeps prompting me to 'Add a location to your tweets.' Not falling for that one." (Obviously not THE Al-Qaeda.)

#6.) Joe Jonas: "I cry because I love Justin Bieber!!!"

#7.) Lady Gaga: "I'm beautiful in my way, 'cause God makes no mistakes. I'm on the right track, baby. I was Born This Way."

#8.) Kanye West: "I'm sorry Taylor."

#9.) Rihanna: "Justin Bieber just flashed me his abs in the middle of a restaurant! Wow! He actually had a lil 6 pack! Sexy, lol! #Beliebersplzdontkillme"

#10.) S#!T My Dad Says: "Don't focus on the one guy who hates you. You don't go to the park and set your picnic down next to the only pile of dog (crap)."

One final note: Nobody said how many times any of these Tweets were re-Tweeted. could be all BS I guess?

DAVE HAYWOOD of LADY ANTEBELLUM is pretty famous. But he refuses to play that card to weasel his way into cool places. He tells, "Literally, I do everything in my power to never do that.

"I hate when people do that. It kills me! Honestly, if I walk up somewhere and if they don't know (who I am), I just don't deal with it and I leave. I would rather not do something than do it because I tell them something like that."

What do Barack Obama, Adolf Hitler, Ted Turner, and Joseph Stalin have in common with Facebook's founder Mark Zuckerberg?

Besides their desires for WORLD DOMINATION...they're now all members of the "Time" magazine Person of the Year club. Yesterday, you surely heard about 26-year-old Zuckerberg being named the Person of the Year for 2010.

And he broke the news with a Facebook status update. Obviously.

He wrote, "Being named 'Time' Person of the Year is a real honor and recognition of how our little team is building something that hundreds of millions of people want to use to make the world more open and connected. I'm happy to be a part of that."

In 2010, Facebook added its 550 millionth member. One out of every 12 people on EARTH has a Facebook profile. The site accounts for one out of every FOUR page views in the U.S. And the membership goes up 700,000 people PER DAY.

Here is an image of a day's worth of connections done by an intern at FB...

A good time to tell you to FOLLOW ME if you aren't!

This was also the year that Zuckerberg really became more of a public figure. Even though the movie "The Social Network" was HIGHLY dramatized and inaccurate, it still brought a ton of attention to him and the origin of Facebook.

Zuckerberg's net worth also went over $6 BILLION this year. And...he donated $100 MILLION to Newark, New Jersey public schools and pledged to donate at least half of his wealth to charity.
"Time" didn't just choose him because of his resume...they also chose him for his vision. Zuckerberg has a vision to take the anonymity out of the Internet and make sitting in your room, alone, at your computer a social experience. And it's working.

Zuckerberg is the second-youngest person to win the "Time" award. CHARLES LINDBERGH was the first winner, back in 1927, after his legendary trans-Atlantic flight. He was 25 at the time.

The runners-up to Zuckerberg were the Tea Party...Julian Assange, the man behind Wikileaks...the Chilean miners...and Afghanistan's president Hamid Karzai.

Last year's Person of the Year was the Chairman of the Federal Reserve, Ben Bernanke.,28804,2036683_2037183,00.html

A team at Marist University in Poughkeepsie, New York just released the results of a poll of the most annoying word or phrase of the year...and "whatever" took the top spot.

39% of Americans picked "whatever."

Miley Cyrus' like favorite word, "Like" came like in like second place, with 28%.

"You know what I mean" came in third, with 15%.

"To tell you the truth" came in fourth, with 10%.

And "actually" came in fifth, with 5%.

The other 3% aren't sure. (Oh WHATEVER. Make up your minds.)

In 2009, "whatever" was also picked as the most annoying word of the year. The rest of the top five from last year was: "you know"..."it is what it is"..."anyway"...and "at the end of the day."

This is one of those stories that makes you a little bit scared for humanity. Because it's hard for any rational person to understand the mentality behind a crime like THIS.

Yesterday morning, around 4:00 A.M., thieves BURNED DOWN the giant Christmas tree in downtown Birmingham, they could steal the copper wiring that was being used to light it.

Thieves use gasoline to burn off the plastic that covers copper wire...and then sell the copper as scrap metal. The police believe they didn't mean to burn the tree...but when they pulled off the lights and set them on fire, it spread.

The police are still investigating who might've done this.

The tree is 35 feet tall and is an institution in downtown Birmingham. This is the first time anyone's ever damaged it.

City officials initially weren't going to replace the tree but a local radio station kicked in the $7,500 to replace it. (Go Radio!!)

Check out the cool stocking-in-lights on the building back there!

And that'll do to you tomorrow!

Snow has finally stopped, sun is OUT!
Talk to you today 3-7pm on Q92.
Here's some good stuff...

Eminem is returning to the big screen staring in, “Southpaw.” In this movie, Eminem will play a up and coming boxer who becomes a champ, only to be hit by a personal tragedy in Southpaw, a film loosely based on the star’s own tragic background.

Kurt Sutter is the writer of the movie. He is known for being the creator of FX‘s hit series Sons Of Anarchy. He had this to say about Em...

“I took meetings with Marshall’s producing partners over the past 7 years, looking for something to do together. I know he’s very selective and doesn’t do a lot. But he shared so much of his personal struggle in this raw and very honest album, one that I connected with on a lot of levels. He is very interested in the boxing genre, and it seemed like an apt metaphor, because his own life has been a brawl.”

“At its core, this is a retelling of his struggles over the last five years of his life, using the boxing analogy. I love that the title refers to Marshall being a lefty, which is to boxing what a white rapper is to Hip-Hop; dangerous, unwanted and completely unorthodox. It’s a much harder road for a southpaw than a right handed boxer.”

Because I told you first on the air yesterday afternoon and on my facebook page, but....
"People" magazine's Sexiest Man Alive and "GQ's" Babe of the Year just couldn't make it work.

RYAN REYNOLDS and SCARLETT JOHANSSON are getting divorced after two years of marriage.

They issued a statement saying, "After long and careful consideration on both our parts, we've decided to end our marriage.

"We entered our relationship with love and it's with love and kindness we leave it. While privacy isn't expected, it's certainly appreciated."

A so-called "source" says that they secretly split up about six months ago.

Although it was just this past April that Scarlett told "In Style" magazine how much she enjoyed domestic life with Ryan, quote, "There's a nice comfort in that. That part of your life is certain, in a way. You've got your home in that other person."

And not long after that, Ryan told "People" that the best thing about being married is that, quote, "You get to hang out with your best buddy every day."

Fast Five"...the fifth installment in the "Fast and the Furious" franchise...reunites most of the important cast members from the previous flicks...and adds DWAYNE "THE ROCK" JOHNSON for good measure. It comes out April 29th.

TAYLOR SWIFT was in New York City recently filming a mini-concert at the Ed Sullivan Theater. That's where "The Late Show with David Letterman" is taped.

Taylor performed five songs, "Mine", "Back to December", "Speak Now", "Love Story", and "You Belong With Me". You can check it out by hitting up the CBS site. It's a little over a half-hour in length. But the hardcore Taylor fans may wanna check it out, so here ya go:

She was a good girl for her 21st birthday earlier this week:

MILEY CYRUS is in New Orleans shooting a movie called "So Undercover" with KELLY OSBOURNE. And over the weekend, they hit a club called Republic with a few other girls.

But it doesn't sound like Miley was being bad. A source says, "It was a good, old-fashioned girl's night. They were just dancing and hanging out. Miley was drinking Red Bulls."

The source added, "[Miley] went nuts dancing. [The group] was really nice and great to the staff. They kept saying how they want to come back. They were really polite...and saying they had such a wonderful time."

And now, here's more knowledge about women's underwear than any man in the WORLD could ever gather on his own.

"ShopSmart" magazine just ran a nationwide survey asking women about their underwear, and here's what they found out...

The average woman owns 21 pairs of underwear. 10% own more than 35 pairs.

27% say that wearing a pair of underwear that's unattractive or doesn't fit well can RUIN THEIR DAY.

47% of women say they feel sexier and more confident wearing a nice or special pair of underwear.

65% of women mostly have "boring" colors of underwear. White is the most common, followed by black and beige.

46% of women say BRIEFS are their most common underwear style. But for women 18 to 34, BIKINI is the most common style.

(Where is BOY/BOOTY SHORTS love?!)

56% of women fold their underwear, 27% toss them in a drawer.

And finally, 10% of women say they regularly leave the house without WEARING any underwear.

Last week, a 52-year-old postal worker in Whitefish Bay, Wisconsin went to work and found one of his female co-workers was depressed. So he said he was going to cheer her delivering mail COMPLETELY NAKED. No names have been released.

He actually went through with it. He stripped naked, went to a woman's office with a package...pun not intended...and tried to deliver it. She freaked out and called the police. He was arrested for lewd and disturbing behavior.

The U.S. Postal Service is investigating the incident. He's apologized and says it was a stupid thing to do.

Fast food drive thrus aren't exactly bastions of good communication...between the crappy two-way speaker and the unenthusiastic employee making minimum wage on the other side, we're lucky they even get HALF our order right. It's why I visit SHEETZ and SUBWAY frequently!

On Saturday, at a Wendy's drive thru in Lehigh Acres, Florida, that breakdown in communication led to one arrest...and one destroyed WEAVE.

21-year-old Rictoria Bethea...yes, Rictoria, not Victoria...was working the drive thru window. A woman named Chloe Glover was trying to order some food.

Rictoria was having trouble hearing her, and kept asking her to speak up. Eventually, Chloe started YELLING. Rictoria responded, "There's no need to disrespect me, because I will go out there and kick your ass."

And...she did. Rictoria left the restaurant, threw down her operator headset, reached into Chloe's car...and RIPPED OFF HER WEAVE.

That got Chloe out of the car and the two women were screaming at each other. Witnesses say they saw Rictoria punch Chloe in the face before other employees could get out there to separate them.

Rictoria has been charged with occupied burglary with battery. There's no word on how Wendy's is going to handle the case...but we'd go ahead and say the safe money is on Rictoria getting fired.

Hey, it's a bit cold out! And of this typing (10:30am Tuesday), it's still snowing! YAY! ??? Ehhhh maybe not.
What's your LEAST favorite part of winter? We'll talk about it after 4 today on Q92

The cast of "Glee" was supposed to shoot a musical performance for their post-Super Bowl episode last Friday...but production was shut down because of a TONSILLITIS EPIDEMIC.

It's unclear who is sick...and how many cast members are affected, but we know DIANNA AGRON is one of them. She plays Quinn on the show.

She posted a Twitter message saying, "Note to self: Should have gotten a flu shot. In bed, hoping that medicine, soup, my computer and a marathon of movies will be the cure."

"Entertainment Weekly" says it was tonsillitis. It's unclear if there are multiple sicknesses going around...or if it's a flu bug. Not that it really matters.

Filming is set to resume today, although the musical performance that was going to be shot Friday has been rescheduled for next month.

Posted this over the weekend on my facebook (see? You should 'like' and get all this stuff first. )
NICOLE RICHIE and JOEL MADDEN got married Saturday at the Los Angeles estate of Nicole's adoptive father, LIONEL RICHIE.

Celebrity guests included Joel's twin brother Benji, Khloe Kardashian, Samantha Ronson, and Gwen Stefani with her husband Gavin Rossdale.

The ceremony was conducted by REVEREND RUN of RUN-DMC.

"I'm a promoter of masturbation. Don't sleep around...learn yourself first."

That's 17-year-old wannabe rocker TAYLOR MOMSEN.

She adds, "Guys do, but girls don't. And that's why girls have so many bad experiences. But you can know your body, know yourself, know what feels good.

"You don't have to give yourself away just to have sexual relevance. Because I don't think sex is something people should be afraid of. It's part of human nature, so I don't think it should be so shameful...particularly for girls and young girls."

If you just got an incredible deal on some UGG boots from a guy standing on a'll never believe this, but they're probably fake.

A website called SiteJabber just put out a list of the top 10 counterfeited items and brands for 2010, check them out.

#1.) UGGs
#2.) Coach handbags and other leather items
#3.) Tiffany jewelry
#4.) Athletic jerseys
#5.) Perfume
#6.) Nike sneakers, especially Air Jordans
#7.) Ed Hardy and Juicy clothes
#8.) Watches, mostly Rolex, Omega, and TAG Heuer
#9.) North Face, especially jackets
#10.) DVDs, mainly box sets of TV series

Auto sales actually got better overall in 2010...Americans bought about 11.5 million cars, up from 10.4 million in 2009. And some Buick, Cadillac, Infiniti, Ford, Hyundai, and Jeep...had massive years.

But some brands weren't even CLOSE to that lucky. "Forbes" put together this list of the 10 worst-selling cars of the year...all of which saw their sales decrease between 30% and 60% from 2009. Here's the list of the unfortunate 10...

#1.) Smart ForTwo, down 61% - apparently we're done caring about the environment. That, or we don't want to get obliterated into a million pieces should we get into an accident.

#2.) Subaru Tribeca SUV, down 61%
#3.) Mazda RX8, down 50%
#4.) Suzuki SX4 sedan, down 47%
#5.) Suzuki Grand Vitara SUV, down 42%
#6.) Suzuki Equator pickup, down 39%
#7.) Toyota Yaris compact, down 38%
#8.) Mazda Tribute SUV, down 36%
#9.) Scion xD compact, down 31%
#10.) Porsche Cayman, down 31%

A British car accessories company just finished up a survey asking men and women what they secretly love and hate about the way the other gender handles themselves in a car.

And basically, it can be summed up like this: Women like when men drive like MEN, as long as they don't get TOO aggressive and dangerous...and men like when women bring food in the car.

Here are all the findings from the survey...

Women love when male drivers know how to fix a flat tire or a broken-down car...know how to park in tight in reverse like a pro...have a good natural sense of direction...and drive like a MAN should drive on the freeway.

Women hate when male drivers tailgate other too fast and dangerousl...use a cell phone...start road raging...keep changing the radio station...or live up to the tired old stereotype and refuse to ask for directions.

Men love when female drivers remember to pack food and snacks for long trips...ask for directions when they're some courtesy on the roads...avoid road rage...and talk to stay awake on night trips.

Men hate when female drivers take forever to maneuver in or out of parking spaces...put on makeup at red lights...are slow to drive when a light turns green...and talk to passengers instead of watching the road.

Apparently it makes people happy to be part of a company that's taken over the world...AND has a chef on staff who cooks you all your meals for free.

According to a nationwide survey by, Google has the happiest employees of any company in the U.S.

Google has a reputation for taking care of its employees: They pay well, there's a lot of opportunity for advancement, they cook all your meals, there's a company gym, and they even have an on-site medical staff if you need a quick doctor's visit.

The rest of the top five happiest companies are 3M, DTE Energy, Qualcomm, and...believe it or not...the U.S. Military.

For the survey, employees rated their happiness in areas like growth opportunity, compensation, benefits, work-life balance, career advancement, management, and job security. Almost 100,000 employees were surveyed.

The company on the top 50 list with the lowest average salary was Costco. It came in 30th, and has an average salary of $40,250.

The company with the highest average salary was Sun Microsystems, where the average employee makes $101,662. But they only came in 46th overall on the list.

Another one I posted for you first on my facebook yesterday. VANESSA HUDGENS turns 22 today...and she might be doing it alone. Pretty much everybody is reporting that she and ZAC EFRON broke up.

A source says, "It's nothing dramatic. There's no third party involved. They were together for so long. It just ran its course." "They are 100% still good friends."

Zac and Vanessa had been together for about four years. Vanessa? Call me.

"In Touch Weekly" says PINK is having a water birth. But it's not true.

Here's the denial Pink posted on Twitter ... "My mom just told me that "in touch" has informed her that she is invited to my delivery, and that I want a water birth.

"She asked me if she needs to get a snorkel. This is all news to me. Amazing. Good reporting."

A new survey by has finally revealed which EMOTICON people hate the most.

The most hated emoticon is...probably the one I use the most! ":p", which vaguely looks like someone sticking out their tongue.

46% of people say that's their least favorite.

The second-most hated, with 39% of the vote, is the angry face emoticon... >:(

The classic smiley face...came in as the third-most hated emoticon, with 8%. :)

The "confused" face, came in fourth, with 6%. :/

And finally, the frowning face came in fifth with 2%. :(

And with that, I leave you :p
Have a great day! :)

Ahhhh....sorry sorry! Been SO busy this week, so only one update and it ALLLL comes at once! Here we go...

JOSH DUHAMEL got kicked off a plane Thursday after he refused to turn off his BlackBerry.

Duhamel was on a flight bound from New York City to Kentucky. While it was still on the runway, Duhamel was asked three times by a flight attendant to shut off the BlackBerry.

Witnesses say Josh was very rude, and even taunted the attendant. So the plane left the runway and headed back to the gate, where two U.S. Airways reps boarded and removed him from the flight.

Josh's rep later said that he was just texting someone about his flight being delayed, and added, quote, "He's sorry."

One website printed what was SUPPOSEDLY one of the texts Josh sent. quote, "Bitch stewardess wants me to turn my phone off. TRANSFORMERS, honey."

During a standup gig in Newark last weekend, CHELSEA HANDLER seriously went off on ANGELINA JOLIE.

She called her the C-Word, the B-Word...and a homewrecker. Of course, some of that might have to do with the fact that Chelsea and JENNIFER ANISTON have reportedly become drinking buddies lately.

ALSO, at her Cleveland show the other night, she said Angelina was "the only person more annoying" than LeBron James.

E! Online has dropped yet another year-end list. This time, it's Douchebags of the Year. The top spot is kind of a no-brainer. It's JESSE JAMES. Here's the rundown...

1.) Jesse James
2.) Charlie Sheen
3.) John Mayer
4.) Kate Gosselin
5.) Mel Gibson
6.) David Arquette
7.) Scott Disick (He's Kourtney Kardashian's boyfriend, and the father of her baby.)
8.) Taylor Momsen
9.) Jay Leno
10.) Kanye West

See why each of these fine folks made the cut at this link


It's from the British version of GQ mag

HIGHEST-EARNING REALITY STARS... has put together a list of The 10 Highest-Earning Reality TV Stars.
The list takes ALL income into account...including salaries from their shows, endorsement deals, clothing lines, appearance fees, "party-hosting gigs," etc.

KIM KARDASHIAN came in at #1, with an estimated take of $6 million this year. Here's the Top 10, with their estimated 2010 earnings and most popular show...

1.) Kim Kardashian, $6 million . . . "Keeping Up with the Kardashians"
2.) Lauren Conrad, $5 million . . . "The Hills"
3.) Bethenny Frankel, $4 million . . . "The Real Housewives of New York City"
4.) Audrina Patridge, $3.5 million . . . "The Hills"
5.) Kate Gosselin, $3.5 million . . . "Jon & Kate Plus 8"
6.) Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino, $3 million . . . "Jersey Shore"
7.) Khloe Kardashian, $2.5 million . . . "Khloe and Kourtney Take Miami"
8.) Kourtney Kardashian, $2.5 million . . . "Khloe and Kourtney Take Miami"
9.) DJ Pauly D, $2 million . . . "Jersey Shore"
10.) Kendra Wilkinson, $2 million . . . "The Girls Next Door" and "Kendra"

Angel? Get on that list girl!!

A website called Auto Shippers just put out this list of the 10 least-safe cars of all time...and the list is filled with older cars that were recalled, legendary cars that have reputations as being insanely dangerous, and two models from 2009!!

#1.) Ford Pinto. It blew up during accidents. The gas tank was accidentally positioned so that it would EXPLODE even in a minor bumper-to-bumper accident.

#2.) Briggs & Stratton Flyer. This car came out in 1915 and didn't have doors, a windshield, or any kind of protection from impact.

#3.) Peel Trident. This car was tiny and offered pretty much no protection to the two people jammed inside.

#4.) 1960-63 Chevy Corvair. The engine released toxic fumes, and the steering wheel would IMPAIL people during crashes.

#5.) 1974-76 Bricklin SV-1. The body was made out of bonded acrylic and fiberglass, which couldn't handle the engine's heat . . . and BURNED its drivers.

#6.) 1985 Yugo GV. The cars would generally just start rattling and fall apart.

#7.) 2009 Smart Fortwo. It gets amazing mileage, but drivers were getting ejected during crashes where they were barely going 40 miles-per-hour. It's also the size of my pinky finger.

#8.) 1984-88 Ford Mustang. These always ranked toward the top of the list for total DEATHS . . . people want to drive them fast, but they're not safe enough to handle crashes with those speeds and conditions.

#9.) 1984-88 Chevy Corvette. More people died in this model than any other car in HISTORY . . . people bought them, drove them recklessly, and crashed them.

#10.) 2009 Kia Rio. Even with modern safety standards, the car manufacturing was crappy enough that Kia Rios put a surprisingly high number of people in the hospital when they were rear-ended.

This survey probably effects EVERYONE reading it. Cell phones.
This isn't going to be a shock to people who own iPhones...or to anyone who's ever tried to have a conversation with someone who owns an iPhone. My friend Sarah has one...the call drops EVERY SINGLE TIME we talk...and she lives IN AKRON...not even out in the middle of nowhere!

In the issue of "Consumer Reports" that hit stands this week (January issue), AT&T was named the worst wireless service provider in the country. And for now, AT&T has an exclusive contract to sell the iPhone (my Verizon connections tell me its coming soon).

AT&T was the only carrier to have a significant drop in customer satisfaction from last year. More than half of the AT&T users surveyed have an iPhone.

Verizon usually wins these surveys, but this year they came in second. U.S. Cellular actually got the highest ratings of any national carrier. But, we don't have them around here, so VZW is the winner!

Sprint came in third, finishing just behind Verizon. T-Mobile came in fourth, and AT&T finished last.

AT&T issued a response to the survey saying, "We take this seriously and continually look for new ways to improve . . . our dropped call rate is within one-tenth of a percent of the industry leader. [That's one extra] call dropped in 1,000." (I don't buy it)

or White-trash, take your pick!
Not everyone can afford a real Christmas tree or wreath or nativity scene. Here are 11 photos of brilliant Christmas decorations made out of things like shopping carts, cheap beer, tires, and even feminine hygiene products . . .

Either this survey screwed up . . . or no one can ever say Americans are LAZY again.

Nestle commissioned a survey asking people what they like to do when there's a huge snowstorm. And given the choice between skiing, sledding, or shoveling snow that's piling up in the driveway, the most popular pick was . . . HARD LABOR.

23% of Americans said they, quote, "enjoy" shoveling snow. Only 17% picked skiing or sledding.


Here are some other findings from the survey . . .
Women like making snowmen much more than men. (Guys, this is why you should make a snowman with your girl and impress her. Look, free love advice. You're welcome)

Women are more likely to read a book, cook, or bake when it's snowing outside than men. (Don't do those things with her. There's probably football to watch. We can't ALWAYS be perfect)

79% of Americans have had at least one snow day in their lives where they were able to stay home from school or work.

Half of Americans believe snow days are DYING, though, because people can now work from home. Stupid internet. Eff you, Al Gore.

LET ME SEE THAT BOOTY BOUNCE... isn't the best place to go for things like JOURNALISM and GOOD REPORTING. But when it comes to putting together erotic photo galleries, they do pretty well.

It's a Top 30 list. Here's the Top 10:
1.) "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy", Kanye West
2.) "Brothers", The Black Keys (Akron natives of course)
3.) "The Union", Elton John and Leon Russell
4.) "The Suburbs", Arcade Fire
5.) "The Guitar Song", Jamey Johnson
6.) "Contra", Vampire Weekend
7.) "Thank Me Later", Drake
8.) "Band of Joy", Robert Plant
9.) "Recovery", Eminem
10.) "This Is Happening", LCD Soundsystem

Elsewhere on the list: Taylor Swift's album "Speak Now" is #13 . . . the new Kings of Leon, "Come Around Sundown" made the list at #18

My girl Heather does radio in Wisconsin...and she used to tease me about some crazy stories about strippers that seemed to always come from the Akron area. Well lately it seems I need to return the favor about some serious HEADCASES from the land of cheese...

If a woman's sitting on the toilet...that's not the time to start getting intimate with her. Right? I mean WHY the HELL would you want to?!
79-year-old Willard Lueders of Sheboygan, Wisconsin made that mistake. And it cost him BIG.

On Monday night, Willard's wife, 57-year-old Karen Lueders, had been acting strangely, talking fast and rambling about spiritual things. Around 11:15 P.M., she went into the bathroom and sat down on the toilet to do her thing.

Willard decided to take that opportunity to go reassure he walked into the bathroom and kissed her while she was on the toilet.

She responded by aggressively grabbing his package...and then BITING OFF HIS TONGUE!!!

When the police arrived, Karen was outside of the house with a New Year's party horn in her hand, singing Christmas carols. (Put the bottle down lady!!!!)
She was arrested and charged with felony intentional disfigurement or mutilation, which can get her up to 25 years.

Willard was rushed to the hospital so doctors could try to reattach his tongue. Doctors say he's in satisfactory condition, but wouldn't give any other details.

I can't tell if the idiot criminal in this story is pro-chubby or anti-chubby. Judge for yourself . . .

Last week, police were called to a Walmart in Fort Pierce, Florida after security guards there caught a man shoplifting. The man is 44-year-old Willie Jackson of Orlando, Florida.

He'd stolen four things: An USHER CD, a LIL WAYNE CD . . . a three-pack of ChapStick, and one tube of Carmex lip balm.

And he gave the officers an explanation of why he'd stolen about $4 worth of ChapStick and Carmex. Quote, "The reason I stole the lip balm is so my fat uncle can fit through the door."

He wouldn't elaborate, so it's really not clear what that means. Our first thought was that he planned on greasing up the door frame . . . or his chubby uncle . . . to help squeeze him through. But four little tubes of lip balm doesn't seem like enough.

This is definitely one way to make sure that when you expose yourself, people HAVE to look.

57-year-old Raymond Taylor is a part-time accounting instructor at Kennesaw State University, just north of Atlanta, Georgia. And he was arrested for allegedly exposing himself to students...WHILE he was teaching a class.

According to the police report, Raymond was in the middle of teaching when suddenly, out of nowhere, he stripped down COMPLETELY NUDE.

One of his students reported it to school officials, and Raymond was arrested and charged with public indecency.

Kennesaw State also ended their contract with him, and said he won't be back to teach.

At least he kept it INTERESTING, right???

This is probably bad news for America's overall health and welfare...but it's an EARLY CHRISTMAS for chubby chasers!

According to the annual women's health report card put out by the Oregon Health and Science University, women in the U.S. are DRUNKER, CHUBBIER, and SKANKIER than EVER. God bless us, everyone.

Drunker. More women drank at least five drinks in one night in the past month. More than 10% binge drink at least once a month, up from 6.7% in 2007.

Chubbier. 26.4% of women are now considered obese, up from 24% in 2007.

Skankier. More women than ever are testing positive for chlamydia. (And sure, that's not necessarily a GOOD statistic to show skankiness. But a sign is a sign. Wear a rubber, bro. Wear a rubber.)

The study also found some news that doctors actually consider good signs: screening rates for colorectal cancer are up...cholesterol is down...fewer women are smoking...and fewer are dying of a stroke or coronary heart disease.

On a state-by-state basis, Vermont and Massachusetts got the best health rankings...they were the only two that got a "satisfactory-minus." Louisiana and Mississippi got the worst grades.

And I, for one, AM GLAD that she did! If you haven't heard, there were some rumors that her ex-hubby started to spread...he claimed Brit Brit was being beat by her current boyfriend.
The "Star" tabloid still claims it's BRITNEY SPEARS on those tapes, telling ex-husband Jason Alexander that she was abused by boyfriend Jason Trawick.

And Thursday on Twitter, Britney had a message for Jason, the "Star" and, which posted the audio.

She said, "Star Magazine, Radar Online, Jason Alexander and the rest of you liars, Ya'll can kiss my lily white southern Louisiana ass!"

She also said that she's, "off on a romantic weekend with Jason for my birthday."
And she revealed that she's almost done with her new album, and it's coming out in March.

Thanks to KHLOE KARDASHIAN'S recent admission that she lost her virginity at the age of 14, the website has put together a list of celebrities, and how old THEY were when they busted it. Here's the rundown...

Daniel Radcliffe, 16 (It was on his 16th birthday, and she was, quote, "much older.")

Britney Spears, 14 (You mean she lied to us all those years? Yes, she did. Her mom later revealed that she lost her virginity to a football player at her school.)

"Glee" star Matthew Morrison, 21 (He kept it in his pants so long by joining several Christian groups up through college.)

Tina Fey, 24 (Tina is a single-owner vehicle. She lost her virginity to director (slash) producer Jeff Richmond...whom she eventually married.)

Matthew Fox, 12 (She was 14. He calls the experience, quote, "absolutely terrible and awkward.")

Lisa Kudrow, 32 (She waited until marriage, unlike those other two "Friends" sluts.)

Adriana Lima, 27 (Believe it or not, she also waited until marriage. And NBA stud Marko Jaric reaped all the benefits! He plays in Europe now. Not that anything on Earth could make me feel sorry for him.)

Kevin Jonas, 22 (If you believe all that "purity ring" stuff, he waited to be married, too.)

Jessica Simpson, 22 (Believe it or not, Jessica waited until she married Nick Lachey. There's no word if he's the one who turned her into SEXUAL NAPALM.)

Johnny Depp, 13 (He was in a rock band, she was a groupie. Pick up a guitar, kids. Works every time!)

Dustin Hoffman, 15 (It was an older girl who mistook him for his BROTHER in a dark room.)

Brooke Shields, 22 (Brooke actually REGRETS waiting so long. She says that if she'd had sex earlier, quote, "I think I would have been much more in touch with myself.")

Anthony Kiedis, 12 (He lost it to his dad's girlfriend...long before there were any websites to show you how that's done.)

Angelina Jolie, 14 (Her first time was with a high school boyfriend. Afterward she grabbed a knife and cut him in order to, quote, "feel closer to him.")

"He's the kind of person you could spend hours with on the phone talking to and all of a sudden it's daylight."
Hmmm. See a pic of him on my facebook wall,

"If you cry over a guy, then your friends CAN'T date him. It can't even be considered."
-Taylor Swift in the new Seventeen magazine

I told you about this the other day, "Entertainment Weekly" has officially jumped on the TAYLOR SWIFT bandwagon, by naming her "Entertainer of the Year".

Taylor discusses several aspects of her career with the mag, including the fact that she's never actually admitted that any of her songs are about real guys. True, she hasn't!

She says, "Sometimes I would laugh because I would see it in print and it would say, 'This song, which is written about her ex, so-and-so...' And they would write about it as if it was fact.

"The fact is, I haven't ever confirmed that any song is about any particular person. There's something kind of freeing about that. As far as I'm concerned, it's all still up in the air." (

Which is interesting since just last year she admitted that any man she dates WILL have a song written about him.

She also admits that she almost didn't appear at this year's MTV Video Music Awards and sing "Innocent"...which is that song she wrote about KANYE WEST interrupting her at the previous year's ceremony.

She says, "I had decided that I didn't want to perform on the show. Or even go. Then I woke up in the middle of the night and I realized that I had to, and that I wanted to perform that song."

Others who made the Entertainer of the Year issue include James Franco, Katy Perry, Jon Hamm and Jaden and Willow Smith.

We are treated with yet another 'end of year' list. Seriously, December gets NO LOVE...something big happens this month? HA, who cares! It won't be on ANY list!

E! Online has put together a list of the Top 10 Big Stories of the Year. Showbiz stories, of course. Here it is...

#1.) Lindsay Lohan goes to jail.
#2.) Paris Hilton's cocaine arrest.
#3.) Sandra Bullock wins an Oscar, divorces and adopts a baby.
#4.) Mel Gibson tapes leaked.
#5.) "Avatar" becomes the biggest movie ever.
#6.) Gary Coleman dies.
#7.) Conan O'Brien gets dumped by NBC.
#8.) The end of "Lost".
#9.) The "American Idol" judge shakeup.
#10.) Captain Phil Harris from "Deadliest Catch" dies from a stroke.

There's a classic episode of "The Simpsons" where Homer buys Marge a bowling ball for her birthday...knowing she won't use it and it'll quickly become HIS ball. He even had HIS name engraved on it.

And it turns out a LOT of men pull that EXACT same move.
According to a new survey, two out of five men, or 40%, say that at some point, they've bought their wife a present...KNOWING that she won't use it as much as they will.

And the most common time to do it is at Christmas. Two-thirds of the men who buy their wives self-serving presents do it this time of year.

Only 55% of women say it bothers them when their husband gets something that he clearly wants for himself.

The 10 most common gifts that husbands buy for their wives...but secretly want for themselves...are DVDs, digital cameras, laptops, concert tickets, vacations, iPods, video game systems, computers, and TVs.


Thursday, December 2, 2010


THEE Thursday we've all been waiting for. I guess....uh, there's a little basketball game tonight? You mighta heard about that.

Let's get right to it.

Nominees for the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards were announced last night...and EMINEM leads the pack with 10 nominations, including Album of the Year, Record and Song of the Year and Best Rap Album.

BRUNO MARS got SEVEN nods. JAY-Z, LADY GAGA and LADY ANTEBELLUM followed with SIX each.

I'm going to assume that this is the first time in history that a song with the F-WORD in the title can win a Grammy. CEE LO'S "(Eff) You" is up for FOUR awards...Song of the Year, Record of the Year, Best Music Video (Short Form) and Best Urban/Alternative Performance.

Now I'm going to go off on a little bit of a tangent here...a NOVELTY song, which let's just be honest, that's what "EFF YOU" is...should NEVER win song of the year! Not that it has yet, but it could...

After the nominees were announced, Cee Lo said, "It wasn't meant to be a radio song. It was meant to be something with flair and first impression and it really took on a life of its own, and I had no idea it would become what it is today."

This is where two of Bruno Mars' nominations come from, by the way. He co-wrote "(Eff) You". Did not know that!

...apparently it's time to release a bunch of End-Of-Year lists. Ya know, EFF December!!
Anyway, Yahoo! has released its list of the most searched-for items of 2010...and MILEY CYRUS was the most popular celebrity.


But she only came in THIRD overall on the list of top searches. She was beaten by the BP oil spill and the World Cup.

Here are Yahoo's top searches of 2010...
1.) BP Oil Spill
2.) World Cup
3.) Miley Cyrus
4.) Kim Kardashian
5.) Lady Gaga
6.) iPhone
7.) Megan Fox
8.) Justin Bieber
9.) "American Idol"
10.) Britney Spears

So if you're keeping track, Miley's the most popular celebrity on Yahoo, Kim Kardashian's #1 on Bing, and Tiger Woods was the top celebrity according to AOL.

When women start taking the Pill, lots of them find themselves with a LOWER SEX DRIVE. The popular theory is that the Pill messes with the levels of testosterone in a woman's body...and that makes her much less randy and willing.

Researchers at The Ohio State University (so you know it's accurate) just finished a study and they came to a different conclusion: Taking the Pill doesn't lower your sex drive...having sex with one person over and over just gets boring.

For their test, they had women who are on the Pill and women who aren't fill out surveys on sexual desire and satisfaction. They also tested their estrogen and testosterone levels.

Women who aren't on the Pill had much higher levels of testosterone than women who are...but there was NO statistically significant difference between their sexual desire levels.

They believe that the decrease in sex drive comes because, in a majority of cases, women on the Pill have one steady sexual partner...and without variety, their sex drives start fading.
See? Variety IS the spice of life!

And it comes today from right down the road in NW Pittsburgh. On Tuesday, 33-year-old David Huffman of New Sewickley Township, Pennsylvania, physically attacked his 68-year-old mother. And when the cops arrived, he gave them his perfectly sound, logical explanation.

You ready? He told the police that the Pepsi machine at Costco told him to hurt her, so he did.

:::head, meet wall:::

He also said he was mad at his mother, quote, "because she smokes drugs."

His mother Ethel had a broken wrist and was taken to the hospital for treatment. David was arrested and charged with aggravated assault, simple assault, criminal mischief, and harassment.
And also for GROSSLY misinterpreting the concept of the Pepsi challenge.

Huh? HUH!? HI-YO!!!!

Alright, that oughta do it...keep scrolling down. NAKED MILEY pics...supposedly! - get interactive!


Miley Cyrus's purse was ALLEGEDLY stolen at an party she hosted at her place out in L.A. over the weekend. In the purse? Her celly and camera...and pictures are now starting to leak.
Let me show you the pics first:


Other pics supposedly off the phone:



My thoughts? I don't think its her in the first pic. The person in that pic looks like an older woman...perhaps in her 30's. Look at her neck. That's not the neck of an 18 year old girl. Compare it with the other pics...
Thoughts? Leave them on this post on my FB:
