Why Students Who Receive Scholarships Inspired By Their Favorite Artists Are Guaranteed To Succeed.

Congratulations to Hamza Qureshi! The very first to receive The Be Alright Scholarship.

It’s not directly affiliated with Kendrick Lamar but it was inspired by him after his recent trip to a Tech High School in Jersey.

I have maintained for years that if you embed a musician in a classroom or in this case, give a scholarship inspired by an artist, students are guaranteed to succeed! Why? When you believe in music the way some of us do, you would never be able to live with yourself hearing a song by that artist and knowing you screwed up the chance of a lifetime! Every time you were in a store or in a club or how about if your friend was like, “I just found this artist I love!” your heart would sting. A constant reminder of how you let that artist down and yourself and that would be the worst. So you wouldn’t, you WOULD succeed… because guilt. :)

Taylor Swift Recruits Beck To Create A Hot Awkward Duo Dance Move.

Source: AV Club

Taylor is a consumate professional. A calclated business woman who recently owned/branded one of her gauche dance moves, “The Mom-Croon”…so one can only assume that the asynchronous swivel motion at the :22 mark was probably planned and there wasn’t a lot of eye contact between Beck and Taylor so you know it was well-rehearsed. So what to name it?

The Swivel Pointer?
The Suave Swivel?
The Round and Round Get Down?

Btw, I can’t fault Swifties for fangirling because I’m definitely a “Vinnie”. The way Annie/St. Vincent shreds and struts?!?!

Liar Liar, Pants on Fire

One way or another, Ed Sheeran is psyching out his fans.

He posted a a picture of a giant lion tattoo in progress across his chest a couple of weeks ago, prompting shock and criticism from some fans, and today posted a picture of his chest WITHOUT the tattoo, claiming it had just been a joke.

But some followers realized the picture WITHOUT the tattoo might be the joke, indicating he had covered it up with makeup. So we decided to get to the bottom of things.

So… is Ed’s tattoo still there? He’s definitely a big fat liar, but is he lying about having the tattoo or NOT having it? Let me know what you think and hear Ed on Today’s Hits!
