"It's Something Like That"

On Monday night, a dad in Albany took his daughter to see Bruce Springsteen in concert.

On Tuesday morning, he let his daughter go to school late.

And he wrote her the most awesome please-excuse-my-daughter-for-being-late letter ever.

Hoping this is true, and not an excellent hoax.

Either way, you've got to read the letter.

"We Joined In, As Though We Were Part of It"

Katie Holmes visited The Tonight Show this week.

She was there to promote her new movie, Touched with Fire.

But the chat turned to the Super Bowl, and Katie had to admit she didn't watch the game.

She did make a point to check out the halftime show, just to see Beyonce

And she even took a moment to do her imitation - such as it is - of Queen Bey.

The crowd seemed to like it.

I'm trying to figure out why...

How Low Can You Go?

Gas prices in the US are dipping low.

In some cases, even lower than the experts predicted.

I know I paid $1.77 a gallon up the street yesterday - and truth be told, I felt like I was stealing it.

A fill-up for under $20? When's the last time that happened?

The folks at NBC News managed to find a station in the midwest that was selling gas for 99 cents a gallon.

Don't get too comfortable though. The experts - you know, the same people who said prices couldn't get this low - say the prices should start heading in the other direction early in March.

Maybe they're not experts after all. Maybe they're just spoilsports.

What do you think?

Sports Illustrated Goes Plus-Size

The annual swimsuit issue is one of Sports Illustrated's most popular publications.

Every year, the sports magazine features super models in outfits that would pass for swimwear only on very select and secluded beaches.

Let's face it, the pictures don't portray real life.

This year, there will be a little reality to be had in the swimsuit issue.

Ashley Graham, a plus-size model, will be part of the spread. And she's delighted.

She told The Stir Daily that her mantra is simple: No man, no job, no friend is going to tell me who I am -- I am going to tell me who I am."

How's that for setting things straight?

"It's Fast, Dirty, It Smashes You Over the Head"

HBO's new series, Vinyl, premieres on Sunday night.

The show's about the music industry back in the 1970s, and based on this behind-the-scenes peek, it looks pretty good.

Martin Scorcese and Mick Jagger are producers of the series, and right there, you've got a winning team.

It looks dark, and Deadline Hollywood is calling it "GoodRecordFellas."

It's a ten-episode season. Just enough to hold you over until Game of Thrones returns.

Maybe?

Beyonce’s Red Lobster Mention In “Formation” Boosts The Restaurant’s Sal

“You know you that b*tch when you cause all this conversation,” says Beyoncé on her new song “Formation.” Apparently, she can cause a franchise’s sales to rise just by mentioning its name. Queen Bey’s single also includes a reference to Red Lobster, and the seafood restaurant chain is benefiting from the shout out. [ALSO READ: Beyonce Revisits Hurricane Katrina In “Formation” Video] According to spokesperson Erica Ettori, Red Lobster saw a significant boost in sales after the Grammy-winning superstar included the line “When he f*ck me good I take his ass to Red Lobster” on “Formation.” The company was apparently mentioned 42,000 times on Twitter in a single hour and become a trending topic for the first time in history. “We’ve been comping up since ‘Formation’ was released and we saw a 33% increase in sales on Sunday,” Ettori told Billboard. “It’s clear that Beyonce’s shout out contributed to that. This is a real testament to the power of pop culture on business.” Red Lobster did catch some backlash on Twitter for its relatively slow response to Beyoncé’s song. In the age of social media, recognition from a global pop star is expected to be acknowledged in mere moments. Fans criticized the chain for taking hours to simply offer up a tweet that read, “‘Cheddar Bey Biscuits’ has a nice ring to it, don’t you think?” It appears Red Lobster is now clearly aware of the power of celebrity and social media. “We are absolutely delighted with what we saw over the weekend, particularly the consumer sentiment that we saw expressed,” stated Red Lobster CEO Kim Lopdrup. “It’s clear that Beyoncé has helped create some Red Lobster fans, and we are very grateful to her for that.”

A Milli, A Milli, A Milli: Lil Wayne Reportedly Owes Over $12 M To IRS

Lil Wayne has mended his professional and personal relationship with Baby. It appears that the Louisiana lyricist has more legal woes. Earlier today (Feb. 9), it was reported that Cash Money MC owes the Internal Revenue Service $12.8 M, this according to The Jasmine Brand. [ALSO READ: I Can’t Leave Drank Alone: Lil Wayne Reportedly Back On That Sizzurp?] Previously, the “A Milli” musician had amassed a list of tax liens. Back in 2014, the sizable amount of about $868,079.89 was imposed by the Department of the Treasury. Adding to his financial burden, the Federal government contends that Mr. Carter failed to pay taxes for the years of 2012 and 2011. For the respective years, Uncle Sam is holding Wayne responsible for not paying the $6,311,132 or the $5,843,952 that was owed. Given the seemingly endless financial difficulties that Lil Wayne has encountered is it time for him to get a new accountant?

"Damn, We All Still Look Good!"

Candace Cameron Bure, Andrea Barber and Jodi Sweetin showed up on Ellen yesterday to talk about their new show, Fuller House.

The crew's back (except for the Olsen Twins) and the jokes are just as corny as they were in the original Full House.

They brought a trailer to show off - it's at roughly the 2:30 mark of the video clip.

The new series debuts on Netflix on February 26.

Let's see what the public's reaction is: have mercy, or cut it out!
