THAT'S A LOT OF VERYS: Sam Smith is working on new music. He posted; "The wait is so nearly over. Something is coming very very very very soon."


STILL TOO LONG: Fox Networks will begin showing six-second advertisements during NFL games starting September 10th. It’s to keep NFL fans watching the TV screen instead of checking their phones.
