The Randomness:

1.  Jay-Z was denied a permit at the last minute to perform atop the Ed Sullivan Theater in NYC. Even though the mayor's office approved it just days ago, thanks to the leak about the concert, they likely are now concerned about terrorist threats and crowd control. So now, it's a NO-GO! STORY
