When Weiland saw a TMZ post claiming he was in jail he responded in a video showing him not in jail. "I just got done reading something very interesting, a nice piece of fiction from TMZ saying that I was in jail and have been for four months… I've actually been touring, writing and recording my new album."

As for Hurley, he'll probably face additional charges for providing police with flase information. To read the original TMZ article, click here.

The top choices for the 2015 Super Bowl halftime show are being asked to pay to secure the gig.
According to The Wall Street Journal, artists like Coldplay, Katy Perry, and Rihanna have been reached out to. The NFL has asked artists if they would exchange the headlining set for a portion of their post-Super Bowl tour earnings or make some other payment to the League.
Apparently it’s not winning over artists. The article states that the NFL "got a chilly reception from the candidates' representatives."

Robin Williams by Eva Rinaldi
Oscar-winning Robin Williams was found dead in his Northern California home. The cause of death was an apparent suicide. Our thoughts go out to Williams' friends and family.

The outpouring of support has been overwhelming from all corners of the world.  

Robin Williams was an airman, a doctor, a genie, a nanny, a president, a professor, a bangarang Peter Pan, and everything in between. But he was one of a kind. He arrived in our lives as an alien -- but he ended up touching every element of the human spirit. He made us laugh. He made us cry. He gave his immeasurable talent freely and generously to those who needed it most -- from our troops stationed abroad to the marginalized on our own streets. - President Obama
