- The beans have been counted and a benefit concert hosted by country uber-couple Faith Hill and Tim McGraw has raised over $2.2 million for flood victims in middle Tennessee. The Nashville Rising concert was held last month and included performances from Miley Cyrus, Carrie Underwood, Blake Shelton, Jason Aldean, Miranda Lambert, Taylor Swift, Toby Keith and others.

- The song remains the same: Disco vets the Village People will not change the lyrics of "Y.M.C.A." even though the the Chicago-based U.S. nonprofit is changing both its logo and its name to "the Y."

- And in not-at-all-breaking-news, The Onion is still really funny.
