What if Psy’s “Gangnam Style” was a rain dance this whole time and we brought Hurricane Sandy on ourselves? That was a significant question being analysed on Twitter last night while the wind whipped windows and tore down trees.
If the rumours were true, then these two teens who trolled a newscast with the “Gangnam Style” choreography were just making it worse. The Norfolk, Virginia teens trotted behind the newscaster in the rain jackets, right in front of the ocean.
While some people thought their practical prank was insensitive, I think everyone needs to lighten up at the joke. One commenter replied to a naysayer: “I’m in a middle of a hurricane and I find this funny.”

Some people say Thomas Elliot was in The Hunger Games while others are convinced he was in The Amazing Spiderman. It really doesn’t matter, because he’s famous and you have to get your picture with him so everyone can be jealous you met a celebrity. That’s how a lot of people act at this popular mall in Virginia.
On a regular Saturday, Thomas and his friends decided to try a social experiment of sorts. With the help of a few staged actors, tons of people believed Thomas was famous, including mall security. The mall assigned them special security to escort them everywhere and shut down a couple stores for him. They even took him through private corridors to avoid the frenzy.
Most importantly, a bunch of giddy girls wanted to get close to the action, asking for autographs and photos. It just goes to show how the perception of supposedly famous people is often built up because of the hype!
Chris Brown’s new introspective song “How I Feel” touches on everything from his relationship with Rihanna to his parents’ abusive relationship.
The rapper seems to touch on his abusive relationship with Rihanna when he raps: “Nineteen, a ni–a went through a tragedy, Three years, a ni–a just found a better me, Yeah, you might find another lover, but you always started with Breezy like the letter B.” Brown was sentenced to 180 days of community labour in 2009 for the felony assault involving Rihanna.
The song is more personal than a lot of his pumped up dance tracks. The media has ragged on him a lot lately (righteously so) but perhaps he needed to spout off his story in his own words.
The Fame singer also goes into his childhood in Virginia and his parents’ abusive relationship when he talks about sleeping in his bedroom and worrying that his mom isn’t going to make it through the night.
Maybe he feels like this is the only way people will listen to him. How do YOU feel about the song?
In a fatal road accident last night involving one of Miley Cyrus tour buses, it seems the show must still go on for the ‘tween popstar.
TMZ reports that the accident has left one person dead and several more injured, though Cyrus herself was not on the bus that was involved in the accident on the Virginia highway. It seems the group of people injured are the singer’s lighting crew, so it will be interesting to see how the singer will manage on her scheduled show (that is still happening) on Sunday evening.
According to dose.ca, there were eyewitness reports stating that the bus drifted off the road before being led to flip. Apparently, the roads were slippery due to a previous bout of rain, and there is an ongoing investigation into whether the bus driver died previous to, or after the crash.
