Did You Hear?
:: Jay Z & Justin Timberlake‘s Legends of the Summer tour officially kicked off in North America Wednesday (July 17) in Toronto, and the duo dedicated their encore song “Young Forever” to slain teenager Trayvon Martin. Previously, Beyonce held a moment of silence for Martin at her concert. [Billboard]
:: Speaking of Jay Z, you may notice that he’s now Jay Z, not Jay-Z. Turns out he officially dropped the hyphen three years ago, only nobody noticed or cared. But now it has been officially disseminated by the Web masses. So, time to update those tags on your site. (Hey, where did our intern go?) [Complex]
:: O Hole-y Night! Courtney Love is dropping her new album, Died Blonde, on Christmas. It’s the perfect stocking stuffer for people whose stockings are ratty and riddled with holes. [Huffington Post]
:: Snoop Dogg (seriously bro, pick one name) taught legendary anchor Larry King how to rap in a recent web video. Quite honestly we don’t know how this video came to be, nor do we know what exactly is going on, but it’s pretty wonderful. [Miss Info]
