Mark Wahlberg was doing press in the same place that the Spice Girls filmed the Wannabe video years ago… so Mark got some the journalists there to get up and re-enact the video. Mark was the director, of course.

John Mayer Holds Berklee Masterclass
John Mayer held a masterclass at Berklee on Friday while he was in town for his Grateful Dead performances at Fenway. The class was held in front of 500 kids, while 6 lucky students got the opportunity to perform their songs for him and get real-time feedback. John said he would much rather teach songwriting than do American Idol – and it brings him joy because the kids remind him of himself and can relate to the hope the kids have. John himself went to Berklee for two semesters in 1997.

Hanson Hates on Bieber
Remember the Hanson Brothers? And their horrific but catchy song MmmBop from 20 years ago? Apparently they’re not fans of Justin Bieber. They were doing an interview, and said “I prefer not to get any venereal diseases so whenever Justin Bieber gets near me or near my ears … it’s just ear infections, they’re terrible.” They joked that you could get Chlamydia of the ear. (But like… they had ONE hit song… and Bieber’s had like…a hundred million bajillian katrillian. So… STFU)
Seth Rogen Blocked by Rob Schneider??
