    THE prospect of a Conor McGregor-Floyd Mayweather Jr. fight has created a mega-buzz about megabucks. UFC boss Dana White was on The Herd on Friday, countering the boxer’s $15 million offer to the UFC superstar with one of $25 million to each combatant in a proposed boxing bout.

    Jimmy Snuka, the WWE Hall of Famer, has died after losing his battle to stomach cancer. Jimmy wrestled from the 1970s onward ... all the way through 2010. Jimmy came into the WWE as a heel, and became famous for his acrobatic wrestling style. He eventually turned and became a good guy. He had a number of shots at the WWE championship -- both as a villain and hero -- but never won. The Fijian wrestler, also known as Superfly Snuka, would often punish his opponents with his signature move -- the Superfly Splash ... which was an epic body...

    There will be no Beyoncé wiggling on stage. Bruce Springsteen, Ariana Grande, John Legend and Elton John aren’t going to be there either. In fact, pretty much every A-lister from the Hollywood and entertainment world has decided to skip Donald Trump’s inauguration on Friday. And whether or not Trump himself is wrestling with that public rejection, the people who voted for him are not. The “blue-collar billionaire” will have a day that’s more befitting of the working-class base that put him in the White House: one without fanfare or celebrities or fancy couture (although his wife, Melania, will most certainly...

    White actor Joseph Fiennes had been cast to play Michael Jackson in an episode of the cable show “Urban Myths,” reports USA Today. Sky Arts, the U.K. broadcaster of the show, pulled the episode “Elizabeth, Michael & Marlon,” after the trailer for it drew criticism from Jackson’s family. Paris Jackson, one of Jackson’s children, said the episode trailer offended her so much that she almost threw up. “I’m so incredibly offended by it, as I’m sure plenty of people are as well, and it honestly makes me want to vomit,” she wrote.

    This week we saw a few perfect examples of why liberal coastal elites are so resentful of middle America: It’s because the supposed rubes and rednecks aren’t more resentful of the elites — or, more specifically, the elites’ “success.” They don’t aspire to be like their self-appointed betters. Some Americans just don’t need much; they don’t think there’s anything wrong with wanting to have a 1,500-square-foot house, watch football and go to church on Sunday. They don’t want to leave their hometowns to come to Silicon Valley or Washington, DC, or Manhattan. They place great value on community and living...

The WWElegend is 67 but on Wednesday posted a video to Twitter that shows him deadlifting 400 pounds with the accompanying words: "I.Will.Never.Retire." After finishing the impressive feat of strength, Flair gives more of a "whoa!" than a solid"woo!", his trademark. Still, the video drew a range of responses from fellow wrestlers, past and present, as well thousands of others. Of course, the "Nature Boy" is never one to miss an opportunity. Hours after the video went viral, Flair was pitching merch from his online store.

In fact, as on study found, while blues, jazz, and country singers typically live as long as the average American; rock, techno, punk, metal, rap, and hip hop stars die significantly sooner. “I hope I die before I get old,” The Who’s Roger Daltrey sang in “My Generation” in 1965.

Norway's government has decided that the nation’s FM airwaves will fall silent from January 11, 2017, starting in Nordland and gradually moving south. After nearly a century of the analog system, which revolutionized music listening with high-fidelity stereo sound compared to mono AM transmissions, the changeover to Digital Audio Broadcasting’s advanced version (DAB+) will render the country’s almost eight million radio sets obsolete. Although it has been in the works for years, most Norwegians...
