Megan Ham of Vancouver, Washington suffers from Lissencephaly, an extremely rare neurological disorder that has left her unable to walk, or talk and can cause her to have up to 70 seizures a day. The doctors reported she would never be able to express emotion, yet a miraculous thing occurs when Justin Bieber‘s music comes on!
KPTV reports: Her teachers realized the reaction to Bieber’s music accidentally when a song came on the radio. Now, it is one of the only ways she show emotion. For some reason, whenever she hears Justin Bieber, she kicks and even smiles. “It really helps her to get through the day,” said teacher Kim Graves. “It keeps her happy and it keeps her comfortable.”
Bieber wrote to her on Twitter early Wednesday, “MEGAN you stay strong for me and I’m gonna make sure we meet when i come to Portland. Love you and Thank You :).”
Singer Pink had to bail on the President of the US of A!
Campaign officials needed to quickly find someone to replace the sick singer, and they selected none other than Glee’s Darren Criss!
Pink approved of her selected replacement as she tweeted: “:( I’m so bummed i can’t perform for The President of the United States this Wed night.thanx @DarrenCriss for filling in for me!! #badtiming“ Darren responded: ”So bummed I’ll have to miss my dental appointment to sing for The US President Wed night. thanx @Pink for messin that up!! #greattiming.” He then tweeted a second time in a more serious tone:” … But in all seriousness @Pink what an honor!”
After the event, Obama is hosting another fundraiser at Glee co-creator Ryan Murphy’s home.
We can’t wait to hear how the show goes. Good luck, Darren!
This past weekend, pop star Justin Bieber performed through a megaphone for adoring fans that stood beneath his balcony in Paris!
He informed his followers of the informal performance via Twitter earlier that day: “”PARIS! 20-22, rue des Fosses Saint-Jacques. 1:30 today will be #withDanKanter singing on the balcony! come sing with me!” The crowd sang along to some of his biggest hits such as “One Time” and “Boyfriend”.
It must be moments like these that make Bieber such a hit because this past Saturday he sold out his entire upcoming tour, Believe, in North American in under ONE HOUR. We hope you guys already got your tickets! He told MTV that he’s got some big “surprises” in store for fans. “There’s a lot of fun stuff. I’ve been really hard at work in the studio, in the dance studio, just kind of figuring out what I want to do as far as choreography and whatnot,” he said. “I think the tour’s going to be really special. We got a lot of surprises.”
What did you think of Justin Bieber’s Paris performance?
Oh how we love Kimye!
New couple Kim Kardashian and Kanye West support each other in many ways. Example? Kim recently tweeted “#NoChurchInTheWild Proud girlfriend tweet” It’s nice to hear that Kim supports her boyfriend’s new album, Watch The Throne, which was collaborated with none other than Jay-Z.
Maybe the top-charting best-selling album will be playing in their new house?
Kim and Kayne have both put their Los Angeles houses up for sale. Although only dating since March, close friends of the couple ensure that they are very serious and thinking about moving in together.
Let’s hope for the best!
The Princess of Pop earned herself the remarkable new title as the Queen of Twitter yesterday when she hit the 25 million follower mark!
She is the first person on Twitter to reach 25 million — as well as the most followed person in the world.
Now that’s something to be proud of!
From her tour in Southeast Asia she tweeted: “#25milliontweetymonsters wow! I’m officially feeling like the luckiest girl in the world today. Last sold out show in Singapore in 2 hrs!”
Justin Beiber follows close behind her with a gap of around 2.5 million followers.
Congrats Lady Gaga!!!!
Finding things to do when you’re in school or living in a big city isn’t the problem… But finding out which of your friends are going out tonight and what they’re doing can be a tedious task.
Meet Wendr – a free iPhone app — that makes it easy to find out what your friends are doing tonight!
Like Twitter, Wendr asks users to answer one simple question: What are you doing tonight? With its sleek user interface, Wendr lets users set plans for the night, and see what plans their friends have made. It saves you the frustration of contacting multiple friends to make plans, only to learn that some are staying in to study, catch up on work or are still recovering from last night. Now with Wendr you can see which friends are “Going Out”, “Staying In” or “Open to Suggestions”.
Micah Jesse is a proud promoter of the app so we highly encourage you to give it a try!
Lady Gaga, U2′s Bono and the Edge, Usher, and just-announced Kenny Chesney, K’naan and Columbian superstar Juanes, are the first crop of artists slated to help ring in the 10th anniversary of former President Clinton‘s foundation with a concert.
(Pssssst! It also happens to be Bill’s 65th Birthday! Can you say “Happy Birthday, Mister President?” Hope Gaga does the honors!)
“A Decade of Difference: A Concert Celebrating 10 Years of the William J. Clinton Foundation” will take place next Saturday night, Oct. 15, at the Hollywood Bowl. If you can’t make it, lucky for you — you can catch a live-feed of the show on Yahoo!
The event is said to be gathering “the most influential and socially responsible artists in music, film, and television.”
“In the past decade, commitments to my Clinton Global Initiative have improved the lives of more than 300 million people around the world,” Clinton said in a statement. “We’ve lowered the cost of AIDS and HIV treatment, combated climate change, strengthened economies, increased access to education and healthcare, provided financing and mentoring for small businesses. This celebration marks ten years of these efforts and demonstrates how much we can do to make a difference in the years ahead.”
Micah Jesse will be in the house (backstage, on the red carpet & inside the show) live-Tweeting all the star-studded action, so be sure to follow along in real time on Twitter @MicahJesse!
