Hunt -- a former college football quarterback and philosophy major turned rising country star -- makes the connection explicit, morphing his own melancholy bro-country chestnut "Single For The Summer" into a cover of Drake's drunk-dial lament "Marvins Room" during live shows.

Madonna Got Whiplash From Her Fall At The Brit Awards

After Madonna fell from a stage riser during a Brit Awards performance earlier this week, the internet had a whole lot of fun with her. But some things are worth considering here.
