MICKY DOLENZ FROM THE MONKEES HAD NO IDEA HIS SONG WAS GOING TO BE USED ON BREAKING BAD
Singer Micky Dolenz thinks Breaking Bad‘s use of The Monkees’ B-side “Goin’ Down” was “a very smart call,” but wants you to know also that the song has nothing to do with drugs. “I certainly don’t condone meth — that is nasty stuff that kills a lot of people and ruins a lot of lives,” he told THR.

President Obama Thinks You Should Know “What Makes You Beautiful.”

We’re not sure everyone in the audience caught the reference. But of course, in the ultimate cool moment of all time, Mr. President’s wife knew exactly what her husband meant. President Obama mentioned that “Michelle said, ‘Yeah’ when he joked about singing Jeezy in his second term. “I sing that to her sometimes,” he added. Are they not the cutest couple ever?
