I kind of walked past him and he goes, “Is that Cruz?” And I instantly turned around and was like “He knew who I was!” So I went up to him, shook his hand, and we kind of kicked it off.

Cee Lo Green: A Toast To Lollapalooza 2011!
Cee Lo Green raises a glass of champagne for a “HOT SHOT!” at the Hard Rock Angels + Kings bar at Lollapalooza over the weekend.
MJ is told that the “Forget You” singer was in “good spirits” hanging out with friends and fans and dancing to the jams of DJ ?uestlove.
The Hard Rock Chicago was the place to be at Lollapalooza, apparently, bringing in the likes of actor-turned-DJ Elijah Wood, John Legend, Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Ronson (separately!), Pete Wentz, Taylor Momsen, and Twilight gorge nugget Kellan Lutz.
In other Lolla news, we hear that Country cutie LeAnn Rimes and her smoking hot hubby Eddie Cibrian snuck away from the festival for a moment of relaxation in the Miami “Express Yourself” Oasis, also at the Hard Rock Hotel Chicago. The couple, who lives in Chicago’s Gold Coast neighborhood, moved to town just a week ago, when Eddie was cast in NBC’s The Playboy Club. The duo we spotted checking out the new Motorola XOOM, which Eddie said he couldn’t wait to learn more about.
MJ missed Lolla this year — but hopes to be there next year!

John Legend: Dropping Out Of School Is Not An Option!
Micah Jesse sat down with John Legend at the P&G GIVE Education “School the Nation” campaign where the 9-time Grammy award winning recording artist was on hand to help fight the drop-out crisis in schools.
Micah Jesse: Obviously education is extremely important to you…what would your advice be to a student who is contemplating dropping out of school?
John Legend: My advice to them is, ‘it’s just NOT an option!’ There is no logical incentive for anybody to drop out of high school because the options that you have coming out of high school early without a degree, without a diploma are so limited in this country. We already have high unemployment… The unemployment rate is 9% but its only 4% for college graduates…so it makes big difference weather or not you graduate from college and the only way your going to get there is if you graduate from High School.
So, to me, as a student, it’s a no-brainer. Dropping out of high school is not an option. If you look at it that way you have to say, “ill do whatever it takes!” Ask for help, get tutoring, get mentoring, whatever it takes.
But that doesn’t let adults off the hook. Because adults have to do the right thing to provide support to kids to make sure they don’t drop out of school. To make sure they’re not that frustrated to the point where they feel like they have to drop out. That starts young. That starts with great teaching, great principals, everything. We need school systems that are set up to give kids the support they need to graduate and Communities and Schools is filling in the gap. Where maybe schools don’t have all the resources to do these things, Communities and Schools are doing all that, which is why we are here to support them.
