If a Twitter screenshot is to be believed, the deal gets even weirder. Call it a "Bill Murray clause." According to Twitter user Rob Wesley, the Clan's contract stipulates the exclusive sale will be honored for 88 years. However, during that period, the Clan or its special deputy may try to steal the property back from the buyer:
"Said heist or caper can only be undertaken by currently active members of the Wu-Tang Clan and/or actor Bill Murray, with no legal repercussions," the screenshot states.
It's impossible to confirm the veracity of this document, but these are shifting sands. Read more here.

Puth's behind-the-scenes video captures what looks like a charming time between all the dancing, hugging and giggling. It's hard not to think there might be something more brewing between the two.
Gomez swears that's not the case, though. Back in September, she dispelled rumors she was dating Puth. After posting a photo with him to Instagram, Gomez captioned it: "Before it begins, he is a good one. He is MY FRIEND only lol."

The point of the game is for users to fly 6 Bird far enough through the 6 (Toronto) to turn him back into 6 God (Drake). Six Bird is similar to the famous 2013 game, Flappy Bird.
Every month, Six Bird will be hosting random giveaways on its social media accounts to users with the highest scores. As a launch promotion, they gave away multiple $25 iTunes and Google Play gift cards. Once they begin generating the money for it, the company will end up giving away vacations to some of the highest scorers. The giveaways will be posted on the app's Instagram and Twitter accounts, @SixBirdApp.
Six Bird generates revenue by publishing advertisements within the app. Founder, Andre Wright has decided that 50% of the revenue generated by the app will be donated to local charities each month. "Since we have extremely low operating costs, we can afford to give back to the community", Wright says.

2015 has been good to the couple, who have been performing together across the country. Additionally, they both received stars on the Music City Walk of Fame--next to each other, of course. Read more here.
Sitting on stools at the stage's edge, the pair sang a countrified version of Kanye's 2005 hit "Gold Digger" followed by a medley of other hits like Brooks and Dunn's "Neon Moon," Charlie Puth and Meghan Trainor's "Marvin Gaye," Drake's "Hotline Bling" and Silento's "Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)."
Rhett even showed off his dance skills when it came to the Whip/Nae Nae, making his way through each part while Eldredge did his best to keep up. Until it got to the Stanky Leg, that is. "Whoa, this guy," Eldredge said. "You had me on the whip, you had me on the nae nae, but the stanky leg…" he shook his head.

"Daddy used to tell us that we lived so back in the woods that Santa couldn't find us," she told Taste of Country. "That explained why we never got the gifts that the other kids did and how Santa never came to our place.
"We decided one year that we were going to start gathering up a bunch of twigs and wood. We started stacking that up around October. We were going to build a big bonfire on Christmas Eve so Santa could find our house."
And they did. But it was her mother who used their innocent gesture to create a wonderful holiday memory. Read more here.
"[Poot] nonetheless became a meme in October, pulling attention from Demi's new album release and proving how Internet fandom can redefine celebrities' carefully groomed images," writes Daniel D'Addario, a TIME writer.
To recap, Poot is: "Demi's twin sister. She was locked in a basement her whole life. This picture was taken the first time she went outside." The meme began shortly after a poorly cell-phone photo of Demi was taken at a concert last year and possibly Photoshopped, giving Lovato's face a wider, less flattering look. Read more here.
The people at WorldStar Hip-Hop edited Khaled's funniest and most ridiculous snaps into a seven-minute long video. Sure, seven minutes seems impossibly long for an internet video, but this one is worth watching every single second of it.
Khaled spits life lessons about cocoa butter lotion, the importance of watering your plants in spite of a high tech sprinkler system, and his love for reggae music and swimming. Take a look at the video here.
However, the rapper then caused confusion when he said in an interview with The Fader that he and Minaj were not getting married'yet. 'It's definitely real," Mill said of their relationship. 'But it ain't really time to get married yet. We're still learning each other, feeling each other out."
However, Minaj has now re-started those engagement reports by taking to her Instagram Wednesday night to share photos that show her rocking a truly ginormous diamond ring on that finger.
"Now this is what I'm talking about baby. Lol. Love u," she wrote, tagging Mill in the post. 'RANG finga whr da rock iiizzzzzzzz." See the posts here.
Taking one picture of Kanye looking, well, less-than-elatd, the newsletter replicated it with such descriptors as "happy," "sad," "scared" and "excited" to hammer home the point that one face does not all emotions convey.

I started writing this song when I was 19 years old, and I got the idea for the first line, "I want to spend December with you, baby". I continued working on the song over the course of about 3 months, where I tried my best as a songwriter to pack something into each line. I took inspiration from one of my favorite songwriters, Sleeping At Last.
When I had finished the song, I played it for about a year until I thought about recording it. During that time, I got the inspiration for the record Seasons-from the bridge of the song. "The seasons will change, and we will too/but the less that remains, the more we're brand new". What I came to realize about what I had written a year prior was the truth that though we change and become different people over time, the more we change, the more we're made into brand new people every day. My EP Seasons is all about change, and reflects a transitional time in my life. Give it a listen, and tell me what you think!
