Did You Hear?

:: One Direction dropped by Sesame Street to teach infants the importance of the alphabet. To assist in this mission they transformed “What Makes You Beautiful” into “What Makes U Useful”. Cute. [YouTube]

:: Mark this down in your calendar. Russian rockers Pussy Riot, who were just released from prison, will perform at an Amnesty International concert in Brooklyn on February 5. [WNYC]

:: Soulja Boy was arrested in Los Angeles yesterday (January 22) when police pulled him over and discovered a loaded gun in his possession. The former hitmaker has really fallen on hard times. [MTV]

:: Now this is funny. Soul legend Patti LaBelle gave a master class in shade when she was asked why she doesn’t like the term diva in a recent interview. Her response? “All these heifers who can’t sing are called divas!” Burn. [Necole Bitchie]
