No one writes a love song like Future. The 30-year-old, born Nayvadius Wilburn, hinted at his prowess on earlier mixtapes, but the Atlanta artist set himself apart from peers on his 2012 debut album, “Pluto.” In particular, Future won a legion of fans with the hit ballad-meets-banger, “Turn on the Lights,” which found him tenderly singing, through amplified Auto-Tune, “I wanna tell the world about you just so they can get jealous.” His...

I am a senior citizen. My husband is a senior citizen. Ninety-five percent of our friends are senior citizens. We go out to eat, we see a movie occasionally, we bowl duck pins or ten pins. We travel by plane or on a tour bus and go on cruises. The average taxpayer has to sit back and watch the government waste money. The senior citizens who have any money saved have practiced common sense through the years - and we've paid into Social Security with every paycheck we ever received.

Lynne Komins, one of the owners of Superior Tours in Pikesville, can't get the image of the New York skyline as it looked Sept. 9 out of her mind. She was on Ellis Island, where she had accompanied a tour, and remembers the sky being deep blue and the view to the World Trade Center towers crystalline. That was before Ellis Island, America's former immigration center, became a makeshift morgue. Immediately after the attack, Komins' buses were cut off from Manhattan. The blockade was temporary, but it was only the beginning of a slump in business for her 7-year-old, family-run tour bus company.

It's your fault Justin Bieber is a jerk. That's the contention of attorney Roy Black, who is defending the 20-year-old singer on a DUI charge stemming from a Jan. 23 arrest in Miami Beach. Mr. Black spoke to reporters this month as video of Mr. Bieber's deposition in the case of an alleged assault by one of his bodyguards -- you can't keep this young man's legal woes straight without a scorecard -- was making the rounds on the Internet. It was not a pretty picture. Mr. Bieber comes across as a twerp so snotty and insolent even Mother Teresa would want to smack him. It's been suggested that opposing counsel baited Mr. Bieber by asking provocative questions unrelated to the matter at hand, such as his on-and-off relationship with Selena Gomez.

When the Wonder Years formed in 2005, the pop-punk band from Philadelphia had a singular objective: Make themselves laugh. The evidence can be found in early song titles: “Dude, What is a Land Pirate?,” “I Fell in Love with a Ninja Master“ and “Let's Moshercise!!!“ “Our band was a joke band, and I mean that in a really honest sense - not like, we were so bad, we were a joke,” said lead singer Dan “Soupy” Campbell on the phone as the group's tour bus passed through Tampa, Fla., last week.

Last year, Lupe Fiasco found himself in the middle of a hot-button debate in hip-hop. His single at the time, "Bitch Bad," explicitly confronted the culture's knotty issues with misogyny, language and gender roles. The chorus begins with the song's title, but finishes with Fiasco adding, "'Woman' good, 'Lady' better. " The 31-year-old Chicago rapper thought he was initiating a healthy conversation, but some felt the rapper's tone was self-righteous to the point of sabotage. ("Lupe Fiasco mansplains misogyny on counterproductive" single, read Spin magazine's headline.)
