1) Nelly totally randomly name-dropping Vanna White in his immortal hit "Ride Wit' Me." We decided that Nelly has the widest gulf between awesomeness of song and respect as an artist. That is, if you are out and a Nelly song comes on, you will get down to that shit and sing along and have a good old time. And you will yell out the "UH-OH!" part of "E.I." and the "I think my butt's gettin' big" part from "Hot in Herre" and just generally rock out. But at no point in your or anyone's life will you admit that Nelly is any good. Because he's totally not. Now I'm gonna go download some songs.
2) I was directed to read up on Vanna's line of celebrity yarn. Celebrity WHAT? Oh, I'm so glad you asked. Check this out.
Okay, did you click? Did you read? I remind you that somebody got paid to write that ad copy. I seriously hope he or she got paid well, because you guys?
