A feel-good story that has taken twists and turns, YouTube sensation Ted Williams is now reporting back to rehab to treat his addictions. TMZ’s Gary Trock elaborated on “The Ralphie Radio Show.”

In partnership with the National Association of Broadcasters Education Foundation, Beyoncé teamed up with Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move” campaign for a remix of “Get Me Bodied” called “Move Your Body.” The video for the NABEF’s Let’s Move! Flash Workout was shown to schools across the country – and nationwide at 1:42 p.m. on May 3, students danced to the workout.

Mixed in with the music video above is footage of kids at Northeast Intermediate School in Scranton, PA and Clear Run Intermediate in Tobyhanna, PA moving along to Beyoncé’s dance. Call it the “Ain’t No Party Like A Scranton Party Remix!”

The boys from Bradenton, FL don’t get to spend a lot of time at home these days, but that doesn’t mean We The Kings isn’t in a Sunshine State of Mind. Front man Travis Clark announced Monday evening on “The Ralphie Radio Show” that the nod to the band’s Floridian-roots may serve as the title for their forthcoming third album.

“It was created by our bass player,” Clark said of Sunshine State of Mind. “(Drew Thomsen) just said it, and we were like, ‘Oh, that’s really cool.’”

Clark is back in the Sunshine State – he celebrated his birthday, which happened to land on Easter this year, with family and friends. The lead singer is back home for about a week before hitting the road again for a handful of college shows and Bamboozle in New Jersey. It’s a rare lull in the action, as his band already completed their portion of writing and recording the next LP.

“Right now, the tentative (release) date is going to be late June,” Clark also revealed of the new album. “Obviously it’s going to be on a Tuesday… maybe the 28 of June, maybe a week before, maybe a week after.”

The first single is called, “Friday is Forever.” No, Rebecca Black did not inspire the song, but that doesn’t mean WTK didn’t have a little fun with Black’s notoriously-popular YouTube video in promoting its own single. Clark says the band contacted the same company that produced the “big head” commercials for the National Basketball Association.

“We decided that we would make a parody video of the little video she did,” he explained. “We cut out our heads and put them on her body.”

Not only did the band use its own heads, but throughout the video the faces of everyone from Charlie Sheen to Angelica from the popular Nickelodeon cartoon “Rugrats” can be spotted. As brilliant as the production is – Clark says that it will not serve as the official music video. The actual piece was recently filmed in Los Angeles and will be released in the near future.

Ke$ha co-wrote the original and Nicki is getting ready to support Britney this summer on the “Femme Fatale” tour – so this makes sense, and sounds pretty dope.

What is going on, where did all these monkeys come from, and why is Bruno Mars shaking his junk?

The New York Times’ reporter Dave Itzkoff broke the news earlier tonight that Lady GaGa’s manager (presumably Troy Carter) has flip-flopped on his initial decision to prohibit “Weird Al” Yankovic from releasing a parody GaGa’s hit, “Born This Way.” Despite first telling Yankovic that the denial came straight from the singer herself, GaGa’s manager now alleges that he never played the song for his artist. After hearing the parody, entitled “Perform This Way,” it’s said that GaGa is a fan and Yankovic will be able to release it commercially both as a single and on his album.

“Weird Al” will donate all proceeds from the single and music video to the Human Rights Campaign.

On Tuesday evening I talked Donald Trump, Mariah Carey, The Osbournes with hosts Brooke Anderson and A.J. Hammer on CNN HLN’s “Showbiz Tonight.” Check out all three of my segments below!

Imagine you’re a 23 year-old up-and-coming pop star that once did a talent show routine in school to Britney Spears’ “…Baby One More Time.” Now imagine that you’ve been told that you’re going to open up for Spears this summer on the “Femme Fatale” tour. That’s basically what happened to Jessie Malakouti – and I’m sure you could only imagine how she took the news.

“This is no joke, I cried,” Jessie revealed on “The Ralphie Radio Show.” She fronts Jessie and The Toy Boys. “I’m tremendously honored to be a part of the ‘Femme Fatale’ tour. Britney is an icon, especially for my generation.”

That talent show routine wasn’t a joke either – Malakouti was in fifth grade when she choreographed a dance with her friends to “…Baby One More Time.”

“Someone has a video of it somewhere, I did it with four other kids in my class,” she said. “I want to try and find them on Facebook. I’m sure one of their parents taped it, and I would love to see it.”

Malakouti actually wouldn’t mind if the video went viral on YouTube – which is refreshing given that most artists would probably dread any video from their teens hitting the net. The 23 year-old is currently promoting her single, “Push It,” an electro-synth heavy dance track that she worked on with Tony Kanal of No Doubt fame and frequent Black Eyed Peas collaborator Jean Baptiste. Yelawolf, a rapper discovered and signed by Eminem, raps a verse on the song as well.

Jessie and The Toy Boys already have a bunch of tracks in the hole and a second single in mind – with aspirations to release an album before the end of the year.

I faced off against radio host T.J. McCormick on Fox News’ “Fox and Friends” in a debate over a recent decision by The College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, MA. The school is keeping a campus pub open til 2 a.m. on the weekends and allowing patrons in over the age of 18.
