Pink Grammy Performance 2010 is a performance worth an award.Â Pink Grammy performance is creating a buzz, and rightfully so.Â The singer who has brought us many songs like “Sober” and “Get the Party Started” wowed the Grammy Awards crowd with her over the top performance.
For those that missed the Grammy Awards, a video of the performance can be found below.
At first, it appears if Pink will be covered up during her performance.Â However, she dropped her sheer body covered robe to showcase a body suit that had lots of white straps strategically covering the parts that must be covered to keep from having the FCC come crashing down on the network.
She went aerial, much as she did during the 2009 VMAs, and the result was a spectacular performance that many will be talking about for the next couple of days.
It’s performances like that from Pink that make us love the Grammy Awards so much.Â Even if she doesn’t win an award, she is a winner in the eyes of many people.Â Anyone that can perform some of the acrobatic stunts that she does is worthy of the standing ovation she received.

Shaun White crash video and an Olympic gold medal.Â Shaun White’s crash video has received a lot of buzz, particularly because the crash was worse than it appeared.Â Shaun White was attempting a maneuver on a half pipe when his helmet flew off and then he crashed.Â Despite his crash, he still finished with his third gold medal at the Winter X Games.
The Shaun White crash video is likely popular for the same reason that many crash videos are popular – we like to see what happens when people take risks.Â Shaun White is no sissy, and he takes a big risk every time he steps out there to snow board.
The end of the story is very fortunate. Watch the Shaun White crash video below and you will see that the ending could have been very tragic.Â Without a helmet and at the rate of speed he was going, White could have paralyzed himself – or worse yet killed himself.
He’s also lucky that the crash happened during a practice run.Â Had it happened when it counted, Shaun White probably wouldn’t have walked away with his gold medal.
Shaun White said the following after the crash “I knew in my mind that I wanted to do it, no matter what happened even if I was in first. That trick’s just a beast of its own. I don’t know, some days are just tougher than others, I guess. I was glad to put it down tonight.”
Watch the video below.Â What are your thoughts? Leave your comments about the Shaun White crash video.

iPad reviews are pouring in and there’s one question – why did Steve Jobs give Pee-Wee Herman an iPad?Â Of all the iPad reviews I have seen and read, there is one that sticks out: the review from Pee-Wee Herman.
There’s something instinctively creepy about Pee-Wee, which is probably why I wasn’t allowed to watch him when I was a kid.
Pee-Wee’s iPad review discussed how cool that he thought the product was.Â His friends – a talking chair, globe, clock, and “magic screen”Â – all inanimate objects – pointed out the sexy products many “Flaws”
“It looks like a big iPhone”
“You can’t run two apps at once?”
No one – except for Pee-Wee Herman – was excited about the product.
The funniest part of the video clip is the use that the character finds for the iPad at the end of the clip.Â Since it’s featured below, I won’t ruin the surprise for you.
Also, Pee-Wee claims that Steve Jobs gave him one of the 50 iPads in the country.Â Although this is a joke, do you have any theories about why Jobs handed an iPad over to a nerdy goofball that owns a talking chair?
I haven’t had a chance to check out the iPad, but I don’t live too far from an Apple store.Â Once it’s there, I will definitely check it out.Â Will I buy one? I don’t know.
Tablet computing may be the netbooks of the future. What do you think about the Apple iPad?

Walmartâ€™s clown commercial illustrates why I watch football.Â Advertisements like the Walmart Clown commercial are typically aired when companies know their biggest audiences will be watching.Â During yesterdayâ€™s AFC and NFC championship games, the Bentonville, Arkansas company showcased one of the funniest commercials I have seen in a while.
CLICK HERE TO VIEW THE OFFICIAL WALMART CLOWN COMMERCIAL YOUTUBE
The Walmart Clown Commercial starts off with a father getting ready to surprise his children at a birthday party.Â He’s dressed like a clown and ready to make his grand entrance.Â He makes his way downstairs and the attention shifts to his wife.
Walmart is how this family saved a lot of money on the birthday party decorations and food for the party. The mother also pointed out that they even saved money on the clown costume at Walmart.
All the while the discussion about saving money at Walmart is going on in the background, the clown is making his final steps down to the party.Â He’s fixing to act all goofy and crazy, and he takes a leap.
Only – before he takes the leap he doesn’t realize that there’s a silver unicorn on the ground with its horn sticking straight up. OH NO!
The Walmart clown immediately starts screaming in pain.Â Instead of making the kids laugh, he scares the living daylights out of him.
I love it. It’s hilarious.

Walmart clown commercial video:Â During the football game today, Walmart’s clown commercial has stirred up an Internet buzz.Â The video can be seen below, and it’s hilarious.Â The worst thing about missing commercials is that it’s hard to catch them on TV – however with YouTube anything is possible.
The commercial starts out with a dad getting dressed up like a clown. He’s excited because he is going to make his kids laugh.Â He then makes his way down stairs to where his kids are having a birthday party.
His wife is sitting next to another woman, explaining how much money they saved by shopping at Wal-Mart.Â The unsuspecting father decides to jump down the stairs, although he doesn’t realize that there is a small metal unicorn on the ground.
Well, the clown lands on the unicorn and starts screaming.Â So much for making his kids laugh. He went from a funny clown to a scary clown all from one jump.
The commercial points out a truth that many Americans know – sometimes to save the most money, we have to go to Walmart.Â The store isn’t immune to the economy.Â The company recently announced that they are going to have to close down several Sam’s Club locations, meaning many Walmart employees will be without jobs.

The Day Obamacare died is a video that is gaining popularity in the wake of the election of Scott Brown.Â The Day Obamacare died is sung to the popular tune “American Pie”, which features the lyrics “The Day the Music Died.”Â The reasoning behind the video is that Brown is against healthcare reform, and his election makes it that much more difficult for Democrats to push healthcare reform through Congress.
Prior to Scott Brown’s election, the Democrats filled enough seats to avoid a filibuster.Â Now, they risk a filibuster should the healthcare bill go to vote.Â This doesn’t mean that healthcare reform isn’t possible – it just means that it is that much harder.
While it’s not sure that Obamacare is really dead, the election puts out a very big message.Â Democrats that are up for re-election in the 2010 midterms are likely re-thinking their direction and trying to figure out ways to keep their constituents happy.
Below is the “The Day Obamacare died” video. What do you think?

Kevin Jonas, of the Jonas Brothers,Â married Danielle Deleasa on Saturday night in a winter wonderland at a castle on Long Island, NY.
“We’re so happy that we’re finally married and we were able to share the special moment with family, friends and loved ones,” the couple told People magazine.
Kevin, 22, and Danielle, 23, recited traditional vows at Oheka Castle, which was described as a turn-of-the-century French-style Chateau.Â His brothers and bandmates, Joe and Nick Jonas, served as best men.
About 400 family members and friends attended the wedding, including fellow Disney star Demi Lovato.Â
A blizzard that swept across the East Coast reportedly threatened the festivities, but everything went forward as scheduled. (For more about the snowstorm, click here.)
“The snow only made it look more like a winter wonderland,” celebrity event planner Michael Russo told People.Â Russo created a fairytale forest under heated white tents, complete with 14-foot trees draped in hydrangeas and crystals made to look like icicles, according to the report.
“Danielle looked like a princess,” Russo said. When she walked down the aisle in her strapless tulle and Chantilly lace Vera Wang gown, “Kevin couldn’t stop smiling,” said Russo.
Danielle, a former hairdresser, wore a silk-and-crystal flower in her hair designed by Denise Leli, because she was wearing one when she met Kevin in the Bahamas 2007.
Their official wedding album will be displayed in People magazineâ€™s issue on December 30, 2009.
