You Will Never Be As Passionate About Anything As This Keyboard Player Is

What are you most passionate about? Personally, I go crazy for pizza.

But never will I ever love a good slice of pepperoni as much as 17-year-old keyboardist Anna Eberhart loves to play music.

When you see how the teen approaches a recent performance with the Boston Crusaders Drum and Bugle Corps, you’ll understand. Sure, she hits all the right notes, but it’s what she does with her body…and more noticeably, her face, that sets Eberhart apart from the other band members.

So. Intense.

She must have learned from this guy. Either way, you keep doing you, Eberhart!

Lily Allen takes a stand against tax fraud

http://twitter.com/#!/lilyrosecooper/status/215352681512960000

British pop music singer and songwriter Lily Allen opened up a political forum of sorts on Twitter this morning when she questioned the moral difference between tax avoiders and benefit cheats. Needless to say, she got quite the response from her followers.

Her comment that tax avoiders are “several hundred times worse” than benefit cheats really opened the floodgates and brought on an unusual outpouring of support for … the tax avoiders.

@lilyrosecooper You are so wrong Lily! In simple terms, way should those working hard hand over 40% of earnings to pay benefit cheats!!!!!

@KetteringChris tax money doesn't just go towards the benefit system. Do you use roads? Health service ?

Wow some of the arguments re #taxavoidance are actually really upsetting to read.I can't believe how people justify that shit to themselves

And quite a majority. I'm quite ashamed to be honest.

Luckily, the government over in London can take solace in knowing that Lily is on its side when it comes to tax fraud, and she is a much better spokesperson on the topic than someone like actor Wesley Snipes.

Weird Al Yankovic sues Sony for $5 million

From New York Times:

Adding to the recent wave of artists suing record companies over online royalties, “Weird Al” Yankovic has sued Sony Music Entertainment, saying he is owed more than $5 million. In the suit, filed Friday at United States District Court in Manhattan, Mr. Yankovic says the company underpaid him for videos and other expenses, and also incorrectly counted downloads of his music as “sales” rather than as “licenses,” which pay a higher royalty rate.
