It's official. Whatever Willow Smith follows up 'Whip My Hair' with will have a hard time living up to that catchiest of catchy songs. This week alone she got love from Girl Talk's 'All Day' and now Bruce Springsteen and Jimmy Fallon have covered her on 'Late Night,' and it's only Wednesday. Fallon poses as Neil Young while he and The Boss (looking 1974'd up) give Willow's anthem its most manly...

At his Friday night solo show at New York City's Beacon Theater, Nick Jonas took time to bring out a pair of very special guests, proving the formula that if 2,000 teenage girls scream at X decibels for one Jonas Brother, they will risk hoarseness -- and the deafness of their parents -- to screech at 3X for three Jonas Brothers. "There are two people I want to share this moment with," Nick said...

Last week (on Friday the 13th, fittingly enough) The Boss mistakenly name-checked Ohio during an Auburn Hills, Michigan concert.
