RIHANNA was promoting "Battleship" at a press conference in London yesterday, when a reporter asked her if ASHTON KUTCHER might be coming over to England to spend some time with her.

The reporter was alluding to rumors that Rihanna and Ashton are dating.

Rihanna did NOT appreciate it. She said, "Wow, how disappointing was that question?" Then she added, "I'm happy and I'm single, if that's what you're really asking."

TRANSLATED: "we're SO banging"

Of course, that does NOT address the issue of whether she'd just nailed Ashton that morning when she left his house at 4:00 A.M., does it? These reporters need to learn to ask the right questions.

Clay may have started a feud with RIHANNA when he was on Bravo's "Watch What Happens Live" Tuesday.

Clay was asked who, on the current pop scene, wouldn't make it past the first round of the show that made him half-famous, "American Idol".

He said, "Oh God, there're too many. Too many...Current pop singer? I've stopped listening to them because they can't sing.

Yeah, ya know...because Clay has room to talk. Since he's BLAZING up the pop chart! pfffft.

"Um...Rihanna has some pitch problems for sure. She does. Now I'm gonna get in trouble, too."

The NFL announced two big rule changes for the coming season.

First, all turnovers will be reviewed by the booth, just like touchdowns are. So there won't be coaches' challenges anymore on fumbles or interceptions.

Also, the new overtime system used during the playoffs will now be the norm during the regular season as well.

That means that a team can no longer win in overtime by winning the coin toss, then just getting enough yardage to kick a field goal.

There are only two ways the game can end on the first overtime possession: If the offense scores a TOUCHDOWN or if the defense gets a SAFETY.

If the team that gets the ball first gets a field goal, the other team gets the ball and a chance to score. If they score a touchdown, then obviously they win. But if they just get a field goal, too, the game continues with sudden death rules, meaning the next team to score wins.

No one won the Mega Millions jackpot on Tuesday. Which means that tomorrow, the jackpot will be an all-time record $500 MILLION. If not more.

HERE'S just how much money that is. If you're the only jackpot winner, after you pay the government its cut in taxes...almost HALF, those'll still be richer than a bunch of famous people.

You'll wind up richer than MITT ROMNEY, who's worth about $250 MILLION...LEBRON JAMES, who's worth about $120 MILLION...and LADY GAGA, who's worth about $90 MILLION.

Want some more? Regis Philbin at $70 million...Will Smith at $200 million...Prince at $235 million...Kanye West at $65 million...Dr. Phil at $220 million...and Brad Pitt at $150 million.

You'll still be poorer than Mel Gibson, Tiger Woods, Simon Cowell, Bill Gates, James Cameron, Oprah, Puffy Daddy, Bono, Adam Sandler, Mariah Carey, Michael Jordan, and, inexplicably, Master P.

Tickets are on sale in 44 states, including Ohio of course. The drawing is tomorrow at 11:00 P.M. Eastern.

You'll never guess which gadget Americans adopted faster than any other gadget in history. It's the BOOMBOX!!!

According to data from the Consumer Electronics Manufacturing Association, within seven years on the market, over 60% of households had a boombox. No other product crosses the 60% mark. Here's the full top 10...

#1.) Boombox
#2.) CD player
#3.) DVD player
#4.) VCR
#5.) Portable CD player
#6.) Digital camera
#7.) Compact audio (Walkman)
#8.) Stereo color TV
#9.) Answering machine
#10.) Satellite TV

The gadget that no one adopted...and, really, people still aren't adopting, is the PC TV, using a computer to run their television. Color TV had the second-lowest adoption rate. DVRs are third-to-last.

Cell phones also did pretty poorly. Even though they're everywhere now, within seven years of hitting the market only 10% of households had one.

Tablets like the iPad, Blu-Ray players, and 3DTV are still too new to make this list.

The Chops & Hops steakhouse in Watkinsville, Georgia used RIHANNA and CHRIS BROWN to market their "black and bleu sandwich".

They posted a picture of the sandwich on their Twitter page and said, "chrisbrown, @rihanna and us teamed up for a award winning celebrity sandwich.

"Chris Brown won't beat you up for eating this unless your name starts with a R and ends with A." After receiving complaints they removed the post and promised to give money to a domestic violence charity.


The Australian band JET has split up.

Their debut album "Get Born" has sold 1.7 million copies in the U.S., and included the songs "Are You Gonna Be My Girl", "Cold Hard Bitch", "Rollover DJ" and "Look What You've Done".

Jet posted this message on their website: "After many successful years of writing, recording and touring we wish to announce our discontinuation as a group...thank you, and goodnight."

Put down that broccoli and pick up a giant tub of popcorn. After all, we could ALL stand to be a little bit healthier, right?

Scientists in Pennsylvania.....wait, I'm skeptical already. Anyway, they have found that, in some ways, popcorn is HEALTHIER than fruits and vegetables.

While it doesn't have their vitamins, it does have more of an antioxidant called polyphenols that help your heart and fight aging. And popcorn is a good source of unprocessed grain.


If you glance around a Taco Bell, you might see a lot of people who are kinda down. Depressed, frowning, quietly and angrily destroying a Crunchwrap Supreme. Well...a new study says that's definitely the norm.

A market research company called BIGinsight surveyed 9,000 fast food customers and asked them how happy they are overall...not with the food, just happy in general. Then they figured out which restaurants have the happiest and saddest customers.

Ever wonder what the HELL the point of this is? I just report it.

The fast food chains with the happiest overall customers are Arby's, Chick-Fil-A, and Subway. (HEY! I love all 3!)

The fast food chains with the saddest overall customers are McDonald's, Taco Bell, Wendy's, and Burger King. (FAIL)

The survey also connected people's physical health to their favorite fast food restaurants...and the results were very similar. Subway had the healthiest customers, McDonald's were least healthy.

There's oil in the western part of North Dakota, which means there have been more trucks driving the highways in recent years. It's the same fracking deal that's going on here in Ohio.

That's a problem, because there are only THREE rest stops for the hundreds of miles of highway in that half of the state. North Dakota is FLAT and BORING. And it's led to an increase in the number of "trucker bombs".

If you didn't know, trucker bombs are bottles of pee on the side of the road, filled by drivers who were either hurrying too much to stop, or couldn't make it to the next rest stop. So they fill an empty pop bottle, antifreeze jug, or some other container, then toss it out the window.

Obviously, that's a problem. The bottles sometimes break open, which has made the North Dakota roadside incredibly nasty.

But it can also be dangerous. If the bottle heats up in the sun, the pressure can build up and cause it to EXPLODE. Hate to have yer windows down when driving by THAT! #ewwwwwww #NuckinFasty!

We're counting down the days until a BACK IN THE DAY weekend on Q92, so here's a story about a 90's artist that I dig, and you might too.

Three years ago, BILLY CORGAN unveiled his convoluted business model for the modern music industry: The SMASHING PUMPKINS would release 44 new songs, one-by-one for free online.

After every FOUR songs, they'd release an EP...and after all 11 EPs, they'd release everything in one gigantic box set called "Teargarden by Kaleidyscope".

Well, Billy has decided to change course a little...and just put out an actual, normal album. It's called "Oceania", and it's coming out on June 19th.

Last spring, the Pumpkins talked vaguely about releasing songs under the name "Oceania"...but nothing ever came of it, until now.

Billy recently said, "I reached a point where I saw that the one-song-at-a-time idea had maxed itself out. I just saw that we weren't reaching the sort of casual person who still gets their information from traditional sources.

"So I thought, 'What do I need to do?' and then I thought, 'OK, I'll go back to making an album.'"

The band has NOT given up on the "Teargarden by Kaleidyscope" box set. In fact, "Oceania" is considered a part of, quote, "an album within an album." (???)

This is the right move. These are crazy times in the music industry...and God bless Billy for trying a new approach...but that plan was goofy.

Two years and three months in, it's unclear how many of the 44 songs are finished. They released eight songs officially...there were four other "bonus" tracks...and there are 13 separate songs on "Oceania", assuming they count.

So at best we'll have 25 of the 44 songs...and all the while, the Pumpkins have been totally off the radar. And that's a shame. They dominated rock radio in the 90's

JUSTIN BIEBER is in a little hot water over what he thought was a silly phone prank. Earlier this month, Justin Tweeted a phone number with the caption, "Call me right now."

The number had a Texas area code, but it was only NINE digits long. Not surprisingly, his followers tried to guess the 10th digit and call the number.

Now, two people who were besieged by THOUSANDS of calls have hired a lawyer, and they want some kind of compensation. No word yet from the Bieber camp, but the offending Tweet has been removed.

7 DAYS...
You may have heard that GREAT SEX can save troubled relationships...but now a new Lifetime reality show will allow you to witness that process firsthand.

It's called "7 Days of Sex"...and Lifetime says it challenges couples to, "have sex for one week straight with the hope of saving their marriage."

Each episode will follow two couples, who are placed on a "diet of daily sex." It's unclear IF and HOW the relations will be depicted onscreen...or if the show is just couples TALKING about their daily romps.

"7 Days of Sex" premieres on April 26th.

It sounds a little intriguing, right? Well, here are some RED FLAGS:

It's unclear how OLD these couples will be. (Call me shallow if you want, but that's a HUGE deciding factor in whether or not I would wanna check out this show.)

And since this thing is on Lifetime, it's going to be focused on women. (That's good. But it's also going to be focused on women's ISSUES, which, for guys, is bad. Very bad.)

This is bad. Very bad. Read on.
Los Angeles gets accused of being a city WITHOUT VALUES all the time. Well that's clearly false. A new survey has found that the people there really, really, really value SEX.

The dating site surveyed more than 10 MILLION of their members, and one of the questions they asked was "How much do you value sex?" Then they matched up the answers by city to find out which cities value sex the most and least.

EIGHT of the ten 'cities' that value sex the most are in California, and FIVE of them are actually part of Los Angeles. Here's the top 10...

#1.) Venice, California

#2.) Santa Monica, California...which is technically its own city, but surrounded by L.A.

#3.) Newport Beach, California.

#4.) West Hollywood, California...which is a section of L.A.

#5.) West Los Angeles, California

#6.) Woodland Hills, California . . . yep, part of L.A.

#7.) Miami Beach, Florida.

#8.) Redondo Beach, California...part of the South Bay section of L.A. County. You get the picture.

#9.) Hoboken, New Jersey.

#10.) San Francisco, California.

On the other end of things...there's the cities where people value sex the LEAST. And there's several from OHIO! Including.....!!!!!!!

#1.) Lubbock, Texas.

#2.) Schenectady, New York.

#3.) Lincoln, Nebraska.

#4.) Toledo, Ohio.

#5.) Springfield, Missouri.

#6.) Fort Wayne, Indiana.

#7.) Akron/Canton, Ohio. (whaaaaaaaaaat?!?!?!?!?!?!?!)

#8.) Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

#9.) Dayton, Ohio.

#10.) Norfolk, Virginia.

Accurate or not so much??

Here's the answer to a hypothetical question you never even realized you were curious about. What would happen if every American flushed the toilet at the exact same time?

According to the website Life's Little Mysteries, the good news is that it wouldn't explode all of the pipes in the country, ruin the water supply, and flood the streets with human stinky.

In fact, all that would happen would probably take a little while for your toilet bowl to refill with water.

It's because every city has its own water supply system. Virtually all of them would be able to handle the simultaneous flushing, although they might not have enough water on hand to refill all the toilets.

A few places with older plumbing structures MIGHT see a pipe explosion...but those would be limited. In other words: If 350 million toilets were simultaneously flushed in this country, it wouldn't really be an issue.

Wonder why every time you visit a major American landmark it's swarmed with foreign tourists? It's because American tourists don't ever visit.

A new survey by found the majority of Americans haven't been to five of this country's major, important landmarks.

--72% of Americans have never visited the Alamo.
--65% of Americans have never visited the Grand Canyon.
--62% have never visited the Statue of Liberty.
--61% have never visited the Golden Gate Bridge.
--57% have never visited the White House.

I can honestly say I've never visited ANY of those! But I've been to Cedar Point.

I mean, dude was making out with MILA FREAKIN' KUNIS on That 70's Show (and she's clearly a GODDESS)...well now, RIHANNA had a late-night rendezvous with ASHTON KUTCHER at his house last week...but it may not have been their first meeting.

Britain's "Sun" tabloid claims they've been doing the BAD THING since December, when they met at a party. (DEMI MOORE gave Ashton his walking papers in November.)

We all knew "The Hunger Games" was going to be big at the box office, but I don't know how many people expected it to be THIS huge: It just had the THIRD BEST opening weekend of ALL-TIME.

It made $155 million in its first three days, behind only last year's "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2", which made $169 million...and 2008's "The Dark Knight", which pulled in $158 million its first weekend.

It's the end of an era: GALLAGHER is giving up the comedy club scene after more than THREE DECADES of smashing things with a giant sledgehammer.

I remember first seeing Gallagher when the cable company added a bunch of channels in the mid-90's as a kid, and we got Comedy Central for the first time. Early one morning, this guy was on there smashing EVERYTHING imagineable. It was hilarious!

At 65, Gallagher suffered a heart attack before a gig earlier this month. A year ago, he suffered a heart attack DURING a gig. And we're just finding out that he suffered a THIRD heart attack YESTERDAY. This one was said to be pretty mild, but he's back in the hospital.

While this isn't a full-on retirement, for the most part, his live performing career is OVER. During an interview via phone, Gallagher said, "I decided that this is enough.

"I have 32 years of live performing, and so I'm looking for just some little stuff, like retirement things, I'd like to show up at maybe company parties."

It turns out the PEOPLE are a big part of why Gallagher is through with the clubs. He said, "It's babysitting people who can't handle alcohol...It's Lindsay Lohanville.

"People are just loud and stupid. I'm just too smart and educated...I guess it's like being a teacher. I want my plaque and I'm out of that high school."

Gallagher's heart isn't the only thing giving him trouble these days. He's also having memory problems. In fact, when his daughter quizzed him recently about who the president was, he COULDN'T REMEMBER.

Even though doctors say his memory will return, he says, "I really don't want to get on stage because sometimes I can't remember what I said or what the word is and I don't want to be pitiful.

"I can't remember a lot of stuff. I was surprised I was in the hospital, and my son and my daughter were there. There's a sadness when you can't remember, I guess it's like Alzheimer's."

But Gallagher's not going to stop sharing his comedic brilliance with the world. He says, "I'm going to write and put it all on the Internet and people can just enjoy it that way."

In a new video on Green Day's YouTube channel, the band and their producer talk about how they're, "literally dealing with a new sound...that's [effing] with their heads."

The producer adds, "It takes balls to do this, because...each hit of every instrument is actually super important, they add up to one thing. Then when you get it done, it's like 'Wow, that's a big powerful statement.'"

Here's the direct link to the video. WARNING: NSFW, it's not censored

Singer BILLIE JOE ARMSTRONG recently said this album would be about sex...but the band still made it sound like an EPIC PIECE OF ART.

Billie said, "I think it's so personal and it is so voyeuristic. And it is. This is the first time we've ever really sung about [effing]."

Bassist MIKE DIRNT added, "The songs are gonna [effing] blow their minds."

Spoiler alert: If your relationship seems like it's in trouble right now...expect to break up on a Friday in three months.

I say do it now! and call me, I'll help.

The engineers at Facebook analyzed relationship status changes from 2010 and 2011, to figure out which days had the most people switching from "single" to "in a relationship", and from "married" or "in a relationship" to "divorced" or "single."

Here are their six big findings...
#1.) Fridays and Saturdays are the days with the most break-ups. Mondays have the most new relationships starting.

#2.) Break-ups are most likely to happen in the summer. June has the most, July has the second-most, and August has the third-most.

#3.) New relationships are most likely to start in the winter. February has the most new relationships, December has the second-most, and January has the third-most.

#4.) Valentine's Day has the most new relationships. There are 49% more new relationships on Valentine's Day than break-ups.

#5.) The next four dates with the highest ratio of new relationships are Christmas, Christmas Eve, the day after Valentine's Day...and April Fools' Day.

#6.) A lot of those new April Fools' Day relationship changes are jokes, though. April 2nd has THE highest ratio of any date for people changing from "in a relationship" to "single."

I would never...

A genealogy website studied U.S. baby name trends since 1940, and came up with the five most ENDANGERED names...meaning names that used to be popular, but could completely disappear.

And they are: Betty, Donald, Carol, Shirley, and Ronald.
All of those were extremely popular names in most of them aren't even in the top 1,000.

Gearing up for some CHANGES on Q92 starting tomorrow (Monday)
For starters, FINALLY...our new morning show hits the air, nearly 2 months after the former team left. I love the small contingent of people who go "oh it won't be the same" - I say "you're right, it won't! It will different!"
I'm excited about what is to come and I think you'll be as well.

ROCK THE RESORT 2012 at Clay's Park. We announce the line-up LIVE at 5pm Monday afternoon, PLUS talk to one of the bands...and we'll blow out FREE tix ALL WEEK

DRAKE, J COLE and WAKA FLOCKA FLAME are coming to BLOSSOM on Memorial Day, Monday May 28th...we have beat the box office tix all week

CARLY RAE JEPSEN, a new artist with a song "Call Me Maybe" will be in-studio on Tuesday afternoon. We have passes for you to come to Q92's studio and meet her!'s some shtuff....

Ladies, you already hate JENNIFER LOPEZ enough for looking nowhere near her 42 years of age. And now you can hate her more for RUBBING YOUR NOSE IN IT.

Jennifer tells "Vogue" magazine that it's okay for her to be nailing 24-year-old dancer Casper Smart because...she looks a lot younger than she is.

She says, "I don't feel older, and I don't feel like I look it, either, so I am just acting the same way I have always acted."

RIHANNA is missing something that's very important to her, and she wants it back. No, it's not her dignity or her humility. She's functioning just fine without either of those. It's her BUTT!

Rihanna's been losing a lot of weight lately, which she blames on her hectic schedule. And it's taking a toll on her once-glorious backside.

She says, "I'm working on getting [my butt] back. It used to be my favorite body part, but now it's disappeared!

"I'm going to have to start hiking or at least going on the elliptical or walking on an incremental treadmill or horseback riding. Something that firms the butt."

(She could ride my horse. ...HEY!!!!! ahem. anyway)

Rihanna would like you to know she hasn't been starving herself. She says, "I'm eating everything. I've been eating ice cream and fast food and Italian food."

Ah good. Rihanna is one of those people who eats everything in sight....and gains NO weight. Don't you LOVE those people?!

Admit it, you've uttered that phrase...or how about, "When I was your age, MTV was a MUSIC channel"? Well, you won't have to beat that dead horse anymore...because pretty soon, there's going to be a movie that'll explain the whole thing.

There's a book about the early days of MTV called "I Want My MTV: The Uncensored Story of the Music Video Revolution"...and it's going to be made into a movie. There's no word yet when it'll be out.

Everyone knows TAYLOR SWIFT writes songs about real stuff that happens in her life. So when she got the chance to write music from the point of view of Katniss Everdeen, the lead character in "The Hunger Games", it was a welcome change.

She says, "Slipping into her mind was such a wonderful break. It's pretty intense writing about my own life, my own struggles. It was almost like a vacation to get to write from someone else's perspective."

"The Hunger Games" soundtrack has two songs from Taylor on it: "Safe & Sound" with the CIVIL WARS...and "Eyes Wide Open", which you should be listening for on Q92

College students on Spring Break are supposedly behaving better than past generations...because of the internet.

They're less likely to get sloppy drunk, pass out, or get naked, since nobody wants to be the subject of an embarrassing YouTube video or get tagged in humiliating Facebook photos.

Margaret Donnelly is a veteran bartender in Key West, and she says, "They're very prudish. Ten years ago, people were doing filthy, filthy things, but it wasn't posted on Facebook."

...this won't embarrass your kids or anything. Or leave them with emotional scars.
A family held a naked protest in the parking lot of Upper Darby High School near Philadelphia Friday...because the school wouldn't give early dismissal to one of the children.

43-year-old Sara Butler, daughters Joanne, who is 23, and Bessie, who's 22, showed up at the school at 10:00 A.M., along with a 14-year-old son who wasn't named.

They tried to sign out a fourth child, but, since Sara didn't have parental rights, the school refused. The family laid on the sidewalk in front of the school and prayed until security sent them away.

They returned three hours later, undressed, and ran around the parking lot praying to Jesus. Police came, and the family was charged with lewdness, trespassing, and disorderly conduct. Sara also got charged with corrupting the morals of a minor.

When SNOOKI finally confirmed that she's PREGNANT and ENGAGED earlier this month, there was speculation that this could spell the end for "Jersey Shore", or at least Snooki's run on the show. But that isn't the case.

MTV has announced that "Jersey Shore" will return for a sixth season...with a pregnant Snooki. The six other main cast members will also be back.

Season Six will film in Seaside Heights this summer, so Snooki will be HUGE. According to reports, she's due around the last week in August. There's no word when it'll premiere.

Btw, it's unclear if Snooki will be living in the house with everyone else.

Recently, she told "Us" magazine, "I'll visit the shore. I'm not living in that house pregnant. I don't want to be one of those moms who's pregnant in a club. It's disgusting."

Here's what MTV has to say about the next season: "The house dynamic is headed into unchartered territory as their lives outside of the 'Shore' take off in exciting new directions.

"While things will definitely be a little different this time when they hit the boardwalk, their trademark hilarity and family dysfunction will remain the same."

Just because St. Patrick's Day is 357 days away, that doesn't mean we have to stop talking about beer.

A market research company called YouGov surveyed people nationwide and asked them which brands of beer they'd heard positive or negative things about in the last two weeks.

And the beer that has the most positive reactions in the country is...Samuel Adams.

Can I be honest? I've NEVER had a Sam Adams. Maybe I should try one!
It's also the only beer on the list currently owned by an American company.

Here's the full top 10...
#1.) Sam Adams
#2.) Budweiser
#3.) Bud Light
#4.) Heineken
#5.) Corona
#6.) Guinness
#7.) Dos Equis
#8.) Miller Lite
#9.) Coors Light
#10.) Miller

Quickly approaching, RIGHT HERE in Northeast Ohio. Anyone going?

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has announced most of the presenters for their induction ceremony next month. Here's the list:

Comedian Chris Rock will induct the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Chris is apparently a HUGE Chili Peppers fan...and has been a longtime friend of the band.

Chuck D from Public Enemy will induct the Beastie Boys.

John Mellencamp will induct Donovan...who calls The Cougar a, "dear friend of recent years."

Steven Van Zandt from Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band will induct Small Faces/The Faces.

Actress/singer Bette Midler will induct singer-songwriter Laura Nyro.

Billy Gibbons and Dusty Hill from ZZ Top will induct blues guitarist Freddie King.

Carole King will induct producer Don Kirshner.

The Band's Robbie Robertson will induct producers Tom Dowd, Glyn Johns and Cosimo Matassa.

Smokey Robinson will induct his Motown group The Miracles, along with Gene Vincent's Blue Caps, Bill Haley's Comets, Buddy Holly's Crickets, James Brown's Famous Flames and Hank Ballard's Midnighters.

There's no word who's inducting Guns N' Roses because the situation is still being "finalized," but an announcement is coming soon. (Given Axl Rose's track record, it's so appropriate that their presenter would be announced LATE.)

The Rock Hall says "more details about performances, additional presenters and special guests will be announced at a later date."

The ceremony will be held in Cleveland on April 14th. It'll air on HBO a few weeks later, on May 5th.

For more information on the inductees, hit up

Lady Antebellum has selected the winning high school in their "Own the Prom Night with Lady A" promotion. But there's a twist. Schools had to send a video explaining why they deserved the free show.

But the awesome kids at Silver Creek High in Sellersburg, Indiana submitted a video that lobbied for a DIFFERENT school. They asked it be held at Henryville High School in Henryville, Indiana...which was torn apart by a tornado earlier this month.

Lady Antebellum went ahead and chose Henryville. Because of a previous commitment, they can't make the school's scheduled prom. So they decided to throw a BIGGER event on May 16th in nearby Louisville, Kentucky.

A new survey by a website called tried to figure out exactly what goes through a woman's head after her boyfriend finally PROPOSES. And the answers are all over the place. Here's the full breakdown...

26% say their first thought was, "Wow, the ring is amazing!"
23% first thought, "I can't wait to tell everyone."
14% thought, "I'm in shock, this was a complete surprise."
13% thought, "It's about damn time he asked."
9% thought, "I wish I was wearing a different outfit or put on makeup."
9% thought, "I wish I'd gotten a manicure, I can't take a photo of the ring with my nails like this."
And finally, 6% thought, "I don't like the ring."

So, when you add it up, 32% first think about the ring either positively or negatively...18% have negative thoughts about their appearance...37% have romantic emotional thoughts...and 19% have some amount of anger.

A survey by the sex toy company Adam and Eve found that a large number of adults have tried sexting...and an even larger number are LIARS.

17% of adults admit that they've used their phones to send sexually explicit messages or naked pictures to someone.


57% of people say they've NEVER done it.

And 25% of Americans expect us to believe they've never even HEARD of sexting.

But maybe it's possible: According to Adam and Eve's resident sex expert, Dr. Kat Van Kirk, "I'm not surprised. Sexting is relatively new, and something a lot of older adults don't feel comfortable participating in."

No naked cougars.

One Direction have a hit on Q92 called "WHAT MAKES YOU BEAUTIFUL" The group was created on the British version of "X Factor". The five members initially auditioned as solo artists, but Simon Cowell turned them into a group at the suggestion of guest judge Nicole Scherzinger.

Their debut album, "Up All Night", just debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart...after selling 176,000 copies in the U.S. last week. They are the ONLY act EVER from the U.K. to debut at #1 with their first album.

Hell, maybe you got it out this week!
Bathing suit season is coming FAST. Feel like you're ready? No? That's fine. Most other people aren't, either.

A new survey found 59% of Americans say they're not ready for bathing suit season. That breaks down into 67% of women and 50% of men.

USHER knows what the world WANTS right now: Usher...a lot of Usher.

For starters, Usher wants to collaborate with ADELE. He says, "I think the world deserves an Usher and Adele record. That's what I think."
It's unclear if he's been wanting to do this for a while, or if he's just coattail-riding.

He has an album coming out sometime this year called "The Shanertance". (Hey Usher, doesn't the world deserve to know what the heck that means?)

And he's playing SUGAR RAY LEONARD in an upcoming boxing movie called "Hands of Stone"...but it won't hit theaters until next year.

PITBULL wrote the theme song for "Men in Black 3", which hits theaters on May 25th. The song is called "Back in Time", and it will hit the streets on Monday. WILL SMITH of course did the theme song for the first two "Men in Black" movies.

If I asked you if you want to see the Tantauco National Park in Chile, or Buffalo Niagara International Airport, you would say no. But what if I told you you're not ALLOWED to see them? Now you kinda want to, right?

I've got a link today to 10 different places you're not allowed to see on Google Maps. They've been blurred out, whited out, or completely erased. And yes, the Buffalo airport is one of them.

Others include the Royal Palace in Amsterdam, a dam in South Carolina, an Army facility in Utah where they test chemical weapons, and a mysterious, unknown Russian site in Siberia.

In addition to walking up hill both ways, home phones, VCRs, and Social Security, you might be telling your grandchildren someday about...the vending machine.

Because some people think vending machines are in danger of going extinct. Over a three-year period from 2007 to 2010, vending machines disappeared from more than 134,000 locations across the U.S.

Vending machines still sell a total of $42 billion worth of products...and while that seems like a LOT of money, it's DOWN 11% from 2007.

To try to save the vending machine, companies are experimenting with different products. That's how they came up with Redbox.

Some other products being tried in vending machines are live bait...and prescription pills.

HAPPY GREEN! Here's some shtuff.

Over the weekend, JOHN MAYER announced that he's canceled his spring tour because his vocal cord problems have flared up again. He didn't have any NE Ohio shows, btw. It was a rather small-scale tour, it seemed.

John had surgery in October to remove a granuloma. That's basically an "enlarged nodule".

Then last week, he went to the doctor after, "something didn't feel right in rehearsal." In a post on his website, he added, "A scope of my vocal cords revealed that the granuloma has grown back where it had mostly healed.

"This is bad news. Because of this, I have no choice but to take an indefinite break from live performing...I'm completely bummed, especially for all of you who started making plans to see a show."

John described the problem like this: "A granuloma forms and continues to snowball because it's in a spot where the vocal cords hit together and there's no way to really give it a chance to heal without a good stretch of time and some pretty intensive treatment. In short, it's one giant pain in the ass."

He'll have to have another surgery at some point. His new album "Born and Raised" will still come out on May 22nd, and he's going to use his downtime to begin writing his next album. (You can read his full statement at

ADELE had the same surgery to repair a vocal cord hemorrhage back in November. She and John have the same throat doctor, but it sounds like their diagnoses aren't quite the same.

The BRITNEY SPEARS / "X Factor" rumors are heating up AND cooling down...depending on who you ask. Here's the latest:

E! News and are reporting that Britney has a $10 million offer from SIMON COWELL to be a judge on "X Factor's" second season. However, that might be OLD NEWS. claims Britney turned down a $10 million offer three weeks ago...and is holding out for $20 MILLION. The site doesn't think she'll get that, and says Britney has shifted her focus to scoring a residency at a Las Vegas hotel. (Usually artists do that once they've more-or-less retired from recording music. Think Celine Dion)

For what it's worth, E! News stops short of saying Britney rejected $10 million, but says she'd take $16 million.

As outrageous as that seems, it might not be out of the question. "The Voice" is paying CHRISTINA AGUILERA $10 million...and JENNIFER LOPEZ got $12 million from "American Idol" for her first season, and $20 million for this season.

None of this is official yet, and it probably won't be until the two sides are done negotiating. Britney and Simon haven't commented.

Britney would definitely bring the show "star power"...and she has the so-called "X factor" the show is all about. But can she JUDGE?!

Since she isn't exactly known for her actual voice or her ability to recognize talent, is she more legitimate than former judges PAULA ABDUL and NICOLE SCHERZINGER? And it's not like Britney has a lot of experience singing LIVE.

Britney would be a fun mentor, who could say goofy things and teach the contestants about performing and stage presence. But as a judge...

As you know, everyone's horrible at driving except you. You're perfect. "Consumer Reports" just released the results of a survey where people ranked the 20 most annoying things other drivers do on a scale of one to 10.

And the most annoying behavior is...texting while driving. It got an average score of 8.9 out of 10. That puts it just ahead of able-bodied people parking in handicapped spots, which got an 8.7.

The least annoying thing was the only item on the list connected to the radio, because radio is a fantastic and flawless medium. At least Q92 is. People who crank the volume on their radio too high only averaged a 5.7 out of 10 for annoyingness. So, turn Q92 up!

Here's the full list of the 20 most annoying things other drivers do...

#1.) Texting while driving, 8.9 out of 10.
#2.) Able-bodied drivers parking in handicapped spots, 8.7.
#3.) Tailgating, 8.4.
#4.) Drivers who cut you off, 8.3.
#5.) Speeding and swerving in and out of traffic, 8.2.
#6.) Taking up two parking spaces, 7.7.
#7.) TIE: Talking on the phone while driving...not letting you merge into a lane...and not dimming high beams, 7.6.
#10.) Not using turn signals, 7.5.
#11.) TIE: Slow drivers in the passing lane...and jaywalkers who walk in front of your car, 7.3.
#13.) Excessive horn honking, 7.1.
#14.) Rubbernecking at accidents, 7.0.
#15.) Not turning on lights when it's raining or about to get dark, 6.8.
#16.) Drivers who are indecisive about where to turn, 6.6.
#17.) Slow drivers on a two-lane road who won't pull over, 6.5.
#18.) Not going when the light turns green, 6.1.
#19.) Bicyclists who don't let you by, 5.8.
#20.) Cranking the radio volume, 5.7.

A SHOCKINGLY HIGH number of men admit they've pleasured themselves WHILE DRIVING. How high? Try ONE IN FOUR. I can HONESTLY say...never have.

A new survey found that 24% have had their way with themselves behind the wheel...31% have done it at work...31% have done it at their parents' house...and 10% have done it at a party. Less than half of guys have never done it in any of those four locations.

So, McDonald's is REALLY playing with fire here.

Before the end of the month, they're removing the $1 small fry and $1 small soda from the DOLLAR MENU, and replacing them with ice cream cones and cookies.

The fries and drinks will move to something new called the "Extra Value Menu" with items over $1...but mostly under $2. It'll have things like snack wraps, double cheeseburgers, and 20-piece McNuggets.

A spokesman said, "Those choices have been available for quite some time, we're just making it easier for customers to find them."

Um. And to make MORE MONEY off of them!

If you're all about '90s music, you're gonna wanna hear this: BARENAKED LADIES are touring with BLUES TRAVELER, CRACKER and BIG HEAD TODD AND THE MONSTERS this summer.

There are more than 30 dates, beginning July 6th in Toledo!! Here's the full list:

It's called "The Last Summer on Earth" tour, and here's why:

Barenaked Ladies singer Ed Robertson says, "I'm a man of science, and therefore put zero stock in all of the disastrous predictions about the year 2012.

"But just in case, I think everybody should come out and see one last great summer concert tour! It can't hurt, right? Here's hoping the Mayans just got tired of chiseling!"

There's a new "Vacation" movie in the works. It'll be about an adult Rusty Griswold...the son of CHEVY CHASE and BEVERLY D'ANGELO'S characters, Clark and Ellen Griswold...and his misadventures with his own family.

The filmmakers say there's an opportunity for Chevy and Beverly to make an appearance...and obviously, they're hoping it happens.

They also haven't cast Rusty yet. (But come's GOT to be ANTHONY MICHAEL HALL...who played Rusty in the original "Vacation" back in 1983. How do you NOT do that?)

If it matters to you, the guys who are writing and directing the movie also wrote the screenplay for "Horrible Bosses".

When you post something political on Facebook, believe it or not, you're actually ANNOYING a lot of people. I shouldn't say "actually", I don't find it very surprising.

A new survey found that 73% of people say they either sometimes agree, or NEVER agree with their friends' political posts...meaning you annoy THREE-QUARTERS of your Facebook friends when you start posting about politics.

More than one in 10 have de-friended someone over political posts.

Online dating. A great way to have casual sex with a LOT of random people in a short time frame. And that's causing a little problem...

Everyone's getting syphilis. And chlamydia, too.

These stats come from Canada, but they probably translate pretty well down here too. Since 2000...when online dating really started catching on...syphilis cases are up 1,000% (!!!) Chlamydia is up 66%...not quite as much, but still a lot.

One of the biggest causes is all the OLDER PEOPLE who use online dating...and NEVER use condoms. Sure, younger people have STDs too...but older people who are divorced or widowed don't think about disease like young people do apparently.

BRUNO MARS graces the cover of the April issue of "Playboy" magazine...making him only the 10th man to do so since the magazine was founded almost 60 years ago. And he's in some ELITE company too!

Here are the other nine men who've been on the cover of "Playboy", and the issues they covered...

Peter Sellers, April 1964
Burt Reynolds, October 1979
Steve Martin, January 1980
Donald Trump, March 1990
Dan Aykroyd, August 1993
Jerry Seinfeld, October 1993
Leslie Nielsen, February 1996
Gene Simmons, March 1999
Seth Rogen, April 2009

This totally fits the stereotype about how women go after other women: Men punch other men in the mouth...women gossip each other into the ground.

The info comes from the website is one of the many, many websites that let you out people as cheaters. It's also the website that broke the story about JESSE JAMES cheating on KAT VON D.

Even though, statistically, men have affairs more often than women, 81% of the alleged cheaters who've been outed on Cheaterville are female. And...40% have been outed by OTHER WOMEN.

James McGibney is the founder of Cheaterville. Here's his theory on why women out other women. "I think women who out other women are fed up that they are faithful while their friends are not, and they're disgusted."

Man, the people at "U.S. News & World Report" must have a death wish. Because if there's one thing Americans will cut you for, it's telling them their city doesn't have the country's best barbeque.

The people at "U.S. News" ranked America's top seven cities for barbeque, and the list includes some major cities and some smaller ones. Here are their picks. Please try to contain your rage.

#7.) St. Louis, Missouri.
#6.) Nashville, Tennessee.
#5.) Austin, Texas.
#4.) Lexington, North Carolina.
#3.) Kansas City, Missouri.
#2.) Lockhart, Texas.
#1.) Memphis, Tennessee.

A survey by something called the American Cleaning Institute found that if it wasn't for spring cleaning, one in eight people would NEVER clean their home. Here are the five places people focus on most during spring cleaning:

#1.) Windows: 72% of people make sure they deal with their windows during spring cleaning.

#2.) Blinds and curtains: They're a spring cleaning target for 67% of people.

#3.) A tie, between ceiling fans and carpets: 65% said they clean both in the spring. Which makes sense...because after you dust off your nasty ceiling fan, you'll probably NEED to clean the carpet.

#4.) Closets and drawers: 63% of people go through their clothes to tidy up.

We think it's worthwhile to know what the majority of people do and don't consider CHEATING. Even though it may be different than the definition of cheating in YOUR relationship, and won't be considered reasonable evidence when you fight.

A researcher at the University of New Brunswick in Canada is working on his psychology thesis and conducted a major survey of people 18 to 67, asking them what they do and don't count as cheating. Here are the results.

CHEATING. Anything involving sexual contact, from kissing to sex. The majority of people also include sexual conversations, sexting, and sending nude photos, even though there's no physical contact.

NOT CHEATING, BUT WORTH FIGHTING ABOUT. Flirting, dancing closely, browsing a dating website, holding hands, and watching a movie alone with someone of the opposite sex at their home aren't cheating, but WILL lead to serious discussions.

NOT CHEATING. The majority of people say that watching porno by yourself, having dinner with someone of the opposite sex, and receiving emotional support from a friend of the opposite sex do not count as cheating.

But if you LIE about doing any of those you have something to hide...THEN they cross the line into requiring a discussion.

Would you rather have another $10,000 in debt...or gain 50 extra pounds?

The results are actually REALLY close. In a new survey, 54% of people say they'd rather take on the extra debt than the extra weight...46% would rather gain the 50 pounds than the $10,000 debt.
