A.J. Jacobs Interviews His (Very Distant) Cousin Jordin Sparks – You’re my aunt’s fifth great-aunt’s husband’s third great-niece’s husband’s cousin, five times removed.
Holy moly, that’s crazy. I’m never going to remember that. You’re also a distant relative of Donald Trump. Any words of wisdom for the Republican candidate? Goodness gracious. Just to make sure he has a good hairdresser so when he has speeches outside, it doesn’t fly off. – Read more at People

Lauren Alaina Talks Working With ESPN, Her Love for College Football & More – Alaina and Imagine Dragons were the only two artists chosen to contribute brand new recordings for ESPN and its college football promotion for the upcoming 2015 season. To say she’s excited is putting it mildly.
“I am freaking out,” Alaina exclaims to Billboard. “I love college football so much. It’s like a holiday at my house. There’s nothing else going on around the house. I’m pumped to have the song being used to promote the season. It’s going to be played for about 14 weeks, so I’m very excited about it.” – Read more at Billboard

Southern Belles, Cereal, and what Scotty McCreery would tell his younger self – Wow — great question. I think I would write that it’s okay to stay true to yourself and trust your gut. I’ve always tried to remain who I am. I have a strong belief in God, a great family and several close friends that have been with me throughout my life. When I won “Idol,” people told me I couldn’t go back to have my senior year in high school — but I did! I had a great year and even was a pitcher on my high school baseball team, all while juggling the process of recording albums and touring. People told me I couldn’t go to college — but I did for more than two years, and had those normal college experiences with my friends that other 19- and 20-year-olds have. I wouldn’t have missed those times for anything. So I think I would tell my younger self to just stay true to myself, and it will all work out. – Read more at East Oregonian
