  • $50 million more for Beyonce

    Posted by Rachel Leigh

    Beyonce has signed a $50 million deal with Pepsi. The agreement includes traditional promotional appearances and a new commercial, but also the beverage company's investment in a numb of the singer's creative projects.

    Beyonce will appear in a TV spot for Pepsi, a brand she has been involved with since 2002. She's also performing at the Super Bowl halftime show, which is sponsored by Pepsi.

    Jay-Z and Beyonce were the highest-paid celebrity couple of the year. Beyonce earned $40 million to Jay-Z's $38 million.

    Beyonce's face will also appear on a limited edition run of Pepsi cans. Other recently featured by the brand include One Direction and Nicki Minaj.

  • Gangnam Style dude, Psy, bashes America!!!

    Posted by Rachel Leigh

    The YouTube sensation known as Psy is best known for his silly horse moves in "Gangnam Syle." But, recently we have found out about his anti-American past. 

    During a 2004 performance that was part of a pretest against the 37,000 U.S. troops stationed in South Korea, the singer smashed a camouflaged American tank on stage, Mediate reports.

    This isn't the first time Psy expressed anti-American sentiments either. In a song tittled, "Dear American," he rapped the lines, "Kill those (bleeping) Yankees who have been torturing Iraqi captives," during a 2002 concert in South Korea

    Psy will be singing for the President tomorrow as well for the "Christmas in Washington." President Obama stated that he doesn't pick the performers either. But, he's the President....couldn't he still stop it? OR get someone else?

    I think that is kind of ridiculous....It makes me sick to my stomach when people dis our troops when they are fighting for OUR country and are risking their lives!

    Psy came out with an apology and you can read it here.

     

    The Hollywood Reporter reveals the lyrics:                                                              

    "Kill those bleeping Yankees who have been torturing Iraqi captives/Kill those bleeping Yankees who ordered them to torture/Kill their daughters, mothers, daughters-in-law and fathers/Kill them all slowly and painfully."

  • Creepy or Clever?

    Posted by Rachel Leigh

    The Pennsylvania police have taken to the content-sharing site to catch suspected criminals and the new tactic is apparently proving to be a success. They have had 57% increase in their arrests.

    AND this all had to deal with Pinterest. You know the site where we end up being on the computer for a good hour or more and waste the day away? 

    The Pennsylvania police department put the mugs shots of criminals on Pinterest to help find them quicker and it is a success.

    I want to know if you think this is creepy or clever?

    I think this is BRILLIANT! You might as well take advantage of the sites out there right now and they are seeing a huge increase in their arrests. I bet a lot of other departments will start doing something like this soon too.

    The getaway hole was already there from another inmate had already crawled out of and they smashed in their cell wall with a shower rod.

    Shakira is a very excited mom to be because she could not wait to share the first picture of her child.  She first announced the pregnancy on her website and then shared photos of her and her baby bump on Twitter. PLUS she went on television to proudly announce the baby's gender. She and her boyfriend, soccer player Gerard Pique are having a boy!

    CONGRATS SHAKIRA! I bet her hips won't be lying to her!

     

  • You are jealous of us fans?

    Posted by Rachel Leigh

    I was born and raised in Green Bay. I love it more than anything! One of my favorite things to do is to go to a Packer game each season. I think visiting Lambeau or going to a Packer game should be on everyone's bucket list.

    On that note....

    With all the games I've attended and all the other football team fans I've talked too, they seem to hate Packer fans. I always wondered why they would hate us. They never have a good excuse of why they don't like us. They usually say we are cheeseheads which isn't a good comeback at all. 

    I've come to the conclusion that they are just JEALOUS of us! :D

    Do you agree?

  • Doesn't Casey Abrams sound AMAZING?

  • Running upstairs quickly because you feel someone behind you.....

    Posted by Rachel Leigh

    I've had this happen to me a lot and I feel so stupid just running quickly up the stairs but man oh man it freaks me OUT! I feel like there is someone behind me but then there isn't. Has this ever happened to you? I want to know that I'm not the only one who freaks out. 

     

    I had a listener call in and it's happened to her too!
