A woman was kicked off an American Airlines flight from Los Angeles to New York and it was all because of Houston – as in Whitney Houston. Apparently the flight crew and passengers got fed up with the woman's refusal to stop singing Whitney's "I Will Always Love You," causing the pilot had to make an emergency landing in Kansas City.

Congratulations go out to Darius Rucker, who received an honorary doctorate of music at his Alma mater, the University of South Carolina over the weekend. Darius was one of the speakers at the Saturday morning commencement, recalling his time at USC where he formed Hootie & Blowfish with three fellow students in 1986. In his speech, Darius described living in the Moore men’s residence hall, singing Billy Joel alone in a shower that he jokingly described “as a big prison bathroom” with six showerheads and no curtain. He also encouraged students to make the most out of their education, saying, “I want you to take time, take some real time [and] find something that makes you want to give ‘til it hurts.”
