Earlier in the week, someone tweeted that he should leave country music to white people. He tells Rolling Stone, "I was absolutely shocked... When somebody says to leave country music to the white folks, that is unbelievable to me... But that's life. That's something that I'm going to have to deal with the rest of my career, because I'm a black guy in country music and there are people who don't like that. But it's not going to make me quit." Darius just scored a number-one song with "Wagon Wheel," which Bob Dylan co-wrote and made an old demo of. He says Bob gave a thumbs up to his version.
JAKE OWEN had a serious wardrobe malfunction at his show last Friday at the North chjarleston Coliseum. He went airborne to do the splits while performing VAN HALEN'S "Jump". . . and busted his pants wide open. Jake picked a bad time to go commando. (Here's the video. He leaps at the 1:16 mark and you get a good look at his fleshy buns at 1:47.)
Jake left the stage and came back later wearing NO shirt . . . because he used it to cover up his exposed bits. (Here's that video. Don't miss it ladies, he's pretty buff.)
An elderly woman who thought she lost everything including her dog after a tornado wiped out much of an Oklahoma City suburb found a glimmer of hope on Monday during an interview with a CBS News reporter. Watch the video for the incredible scene.
Adele is loved by so many fans, and that includes Rev. This dog has listened to this song his entire life and is a huge fan. The street noise at the begining always gets his attention.
Trace Adkins stopped by the Today Show and gave Hoda and Kathie Lee a hard time about their drinking -- among other things. Couldn’t help but think Trace felt like this was a complete waste of time.

11-year-old Caine Smith was choked, beaten, harassed, and was called a long list of names simply because he had two moms and long hair. Instead of staying locked away and hiding, he stood up and did something about it.
If you share this, you'll be helping make sure the Bully Project is seen in schools across the country. Caine would appreciate it.
I wanted to write this to tell other women that the decision to have a mastectomy was not easy. But it is one I am very happy that I made. My chances of developing breast cancer have dropped from 87 percent to under 5 percent. I can tell my children that they don’t need to fear they will lose me to breast cancer...

...Breast cancer alone kills some 458,000 people each year, according to the World Health Organization, mainly in low- and middle-income countries. It has got to be a priority to ensure that more women can access gene testing and lifesaving preventive treatment, whatever their means and background, wherever they live. The cost of testing for BRCA1 and BRCA2, at more than $3,000 in the United States, remains an obstacle for many women.
I choose not to keep my story private because there are many women who do not know that they might be living under the shadow of cancer. It is my hope that they, too, will be able to get gene tested, and that if they have a high risk they, too, will know that they have strong options.
Life comes with many challenges. The ones that should not scare us are the ones we can take on and take control of.
