During a recent interview James Blunt revealed what his hit “You’re Beautiful” really is about … and it’s not a romantic love song.
The British singer said, “You get labeled with these things like, ‘Oh, James Blunt. Isn’t he just a soft romantic?’ Well, f—k that. No, I’m not. ‘You’re Beautiful’ is not this soft romantic f—king song. It’s about a guy who’s high as a f—king kite on drugs in the subway stalking someone else’s girlfriend when that guy is there in front of him, and he should be locked up or put in prison for being some kind of perv.”
James Blunt says his song ‘You’re Beautiful’ doesn’t mean what you think it does… “it’s about a guy who’s high as a kite and stalking some other guy’s girlfriend.”
Asking for someone’s phone number is becoming a thing of the past.
Most people nowadays stay in touch by “liking” photos, responding directly to someone’s Instagram or Snapchat story, emailing them or video-calling them through Facebook or Skype.
If and when someone actually does call you on an actual phone, chances are you won’t pick up.
And a recent survey found 62% of teens share their social media username as one of the first pieces of information when meeting someone new…. with only 13% citing phone calls as their first choice in communicating with friends.

Kids who watch too much TV are less ready for school.
Researchers looked at over 800 kids between 5-and 6-years-old assessed at the start of kindergarten for basic skills like counting, letter recognition and sorting blocks by pattern and shape. They also looked at how much TV the kids watched.
They found kids who watched a lot of TV did worse in test scores– especially those kids coming from poor families– who did worse than middle class kids who watched a lot of TV.
Teenage brains are actually wired to engage in risky behaviors.
Researchers looked at more than 5,000 teens and young adults from 11 countries to reach their conclusions. They found that the desire to seek thrills usually peaks around 19 years old, and then declines with age. Young adults’ ability to self-regulate or deny their impulses climbs until the age of 23 or 24 when it fully develops.
The study also showed that risky behaviors such as unsafe sex, alcohol and drug use, and dangerous driving, varies greatly depending on the country they live in.
For example – in Indonesia, only 2 percent of teenagers reported having tried alcohol in the last month compared to about half of the teens in Argentina.
While accepting the iHeart Radio Award for song of the year for his hit “Can’t Stop The Feeling” from the DreamWorks Animation film “Trolls”, Justin Timberlake gave an uplifting speech, saying he wrote the song with the idea of “inclusion” in mind.
Justin said, ”If you are black or gay or lesbian or trans or maybe you’re just a sissy singing boy from Tennessee, anyone that is treating you unkindly, it’s only because they are afraid or taught to be afraid of how important you are because being different means you make the difference.”
