Here’s this week’s rundown.

Zac Brown Dissing Luke Bryan

 
 

Cat Fight.

Zac Brown said this about Luke Bryan's 'That's My Kinda Night', “When songs make me wanna throw up, it makes me ashamed to even be in the same genre as those songs".

Oh, well you don't say, Zac. At least Luke isn't bald.

House Votes to Cut $4B a year from food stamps

 
 

$4 BILLION DOLLARS! That's a ton. The House has voted to cut nearly $4 billion a year from food stamps, a 5 percent reduction to the nation's main feeding program used by more than 1 in 7 Americans.

2 Ugly parts to this:

-I hope nobody who truly needs the stamps has to suffer

- On the flip side: This also goes full circle to the statement "people on welfare should be drug tested" and I hope that this takes food stamps away from people like this.

Your thoughts?

Gary Allan's Comments About Taylor Swift Carrie Underwood

 
 

Apparently, it's like a Royal Rumble in country music this week. Everyone's in the ring and throwing punches this week.

Gary Allan's cheap shots to Carrie Underwood and Taylor Swift included him saying, " “I would say they’re pop artists making a living in the country genre.”

...Like they've never heard that one before.

Clown Terrorizes British Town

 
 

This is weird. Imagine driving around your town and every night you see this clown holding balloons in the middle of the night on a different street.

That's what this town Northampton is dealing with right now. They say he's not armed. But, uhhh you can't feel 100% safe.

Never trust a clown. Especially, one that doesn't talk.

Check out the pics.
