Children’s Hospital Colorado’s Broncos-themed “Let It Go” is crazy adorable
Looking around Denver, it's not obvious the city is competing for its first Super Bowl in 14 years. Aside from that pop-up store on the 16th Street Mall, the odd Broncos flag waving from a balcony and Denver International Airport's orange and blue departure arrival color scheme, you'd be forgiven for thinking the Broncos are heading into their first pre-season game this Sunday and not the biggest game of the year (century?).
Even for Drake, this is some pretty lame product hawking

To kick things off, the band has just released a music video for their latest single, "Had It All." The video features the members of One Flew West as increasingly ridiculous characters in a '90s sitcom credits intro, a la the hilarious and nightmarish viral video, "Too Many Cooks."

Justin Bieber teams with Skrillex for “What Do You Mean,” results not terrible
Let's put things into perspective: You put two of the most hateable artists on one track and strong opinions will inexorably surface. Justin Bieber has made a strong case over the last several years that he should be sent back to Canada for more reasons than a team of accountants can tally.
