6515: Taking Hits.
Web watching with a MultiCultClassics Monologue…
• The news of Michael Jackson performing in London led to a spike in traffic at MichaelJacksonLive.com. “The site is receiving 16,000 requests per second, so demand is extremely high, phenomenal is an understatement,” said a spokesperson. The majority of the visits are probably from Tito and Jermaine seeking to get in on the act.
• TMZ.com claims Coolio was busted with crack at Los Angeles International Airport. Hey, that should spike visits to the gossip site.
• Recording artist, actor and jail-bound T.I. was prohibited from appearing at a Brooklyn middle school. A Department of Education spokeswoman said the scheduled visit, which would have also aired on T.I.’s MTV reality show, was too “commercial” to be allowed. Prior to the announcement, school students, faculty and parents were hyped about potentially meeting the star. Maybe they can call in Jacko or Coolio as a replacement.
