Twin Boys Who Pulled Hockey Shot Switcheroo Won’t Get $50,000 Prize [VIDEO]
A decision has been made in the case of twin brothers Nick and Nate Smith, who switched places to take a $50,000 shot at a charity hockey match last month.

Our friends at PopCrush assembled an epic list of the worst album covers released in the top half of 2011, including atrocities from Lady Gaga, Limp Bizkit and 311.

In an effort to avoid such problems, Weingarten created a pri
Listen to M.I.A.’s Amy Winehouse Tribute Song, ’27′ [AUDIO]
A mere day after the death of singer Amy Winehouse, rapper M.I.A. released the haunting ’27,’ an unfinished demo that loosely pays tribute to the late star.

Turkish Airline Safety Video Performed by Cute Kids
