Yep, the title says it all!

U.S. President Barack Obama injured his lip while playing basketball on Thanksgiving with his personal aide Reggie Love and other members of his family.

Obama was struck by a player’s elbow (for some reason it doesn’t seem to be Love) to his lip (Thank God it wasn’t somewhere else) and had to take 12 (yes, 12) stitches while given a local anaesthetic. Obama was seen holding an ice pack on his lip later on (poor thing).

Why did Obama receive 12 stitches?

“The medical unit that treated Obama used a smaller filament than typically used, which increases the number of stitches but makes a tighter stitch and results in a smaller scar,” said White House spokesman Robert Gibbs.

Nice way for the President to spend his Thanksgiving I guess.

Oh, here’s a picture of him with the icepack:

Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!


NKOTBSB Official Poster

You know it’s a great, great time for boybands when two of the biggest acts of that genre get together and spontaneously decide to go on tour together. Yes, the internet has been buzzing with news of an upcoming tour that will bring together the first group to follow the “boyband” format, New Kids on the Block, and the highest selling group, Backstreet Boys. Some naysayers think its because both groups no longer have a steady source of income, but that’s far from the truth. Sure, they’ve gotten older, their dance moves are a bit rusty, the songs evoke good memories of simpler times but nothing more, but when this tour was announced, echoes of screaming girls (well women actually) could be heard all over the world. Just goes to show that they’ve still got it, one way or another.

I am a sucker for the Backstreet Boys and completely bummed out that I will not be able to attend any of their concerts.

Here’s what we basicallyknow about NKOTBSB:  (more…)


Remember when the Black Eyed Peas used to be the hottest thing in hip-hop? I do. Their debut album Elephant was great because it

gave us a memorable song by the name of  Where Is the Love? The song combined a fresh style with socially-conscious lyrics that made people re-evaluate the world they were living in, all in 4 or so minutes. The band, as is known, continued to be successful despite allegations of them plagarizing almost all their hits from other sources. Somewhere along the line, though, they went from being all about hip-hop into David Guetta‘s dream-project, as demonstrated by their last album The E.N.D, where their most successful song, at least in this country, I Gotta Feeling was produced by said person. So, bye bye hip-hop, and hello really cliche electronic music.

Well, they’re doing it again with this month’s release of *drum roll please, because really this is going to be a surprise* The Beginning, which judging by the album’s first single is going to be very, very much like it’s predesecor.

So let’s talk about that single, The Time (Dirty Bit) which is set to be released as a single just four days before the album (Really now? Smart marketing move BEP). (more…)

We here at TnT are huge Eminem fans, even before he made his amazingly successful album Recovery. We have previously reviewed Love The Way You Lie and No Love, both great songs in their own right, as well as their status as chart-toppers. We are therefore a bit perplexed about his most recent collaborations that are not up to his usual standard.

The first is a Part Deux of Love the Way You Lie, which will be featured on Rihanna‘s latest (and most probably lame, boring, non-creative) album Loud. This news should come as no shock to anyone familiar with how the music industry functions. Apparently, the fiery redhead (yes, she doesn’t seem to be giving up that color anytime soon) Barbadian doesn’t. As reported by MTV News, she was shocked that Eminem wanted to a follow up to their smash duet. Rihanna, sweetheart, it’s very simple. Once you make a hit record that gets a lot of buzz generated (mainly because you have Megan Fox in the video), you want to ride out the success for as long as you can.  How could you not know that with all the success you’ve had?

In the Washington Wizards’ hope opener last night, John Wall did the Dougie dance in the introductions. The Wizards beat the Philadelphia 76ers for the first win 116-115 in OT. Wall had 29 points, 13 assists and 9 steals in the win.

And here’s the Dougie dance:
