The Unity Festival is happening this weekend in Toronto. The marquee event for this gathering of aspiring and established hip-hop artists will be a free Talib Kweli show tonight at Yonge-Dundas Square.

There is, however, a far greater purpose to Unity than putting on a big concert. The Unity Charity, an after-school arts and leadership program based in disadvantaged neighborhoods, has been help young adults grow and develop.

I talked to Mike Prosserman, a former competitive breakdancer and founder of the charity, to explain exactly what they do and why they do it.

“Call Me Maybe” singer Carly Rae Jepsen has a Glee-style dance choir past.

At least that’s what the guys from Faber Drive told Sarah on the red carpet at the MuchMusic Video Awards last week.

They know this how? Because one of them was in the choir with her in high school.

Six Extremely Detailed Descriptions Of Rock Musicals We’d Like To See

Scenes From American Idiot, The Musical

Scenes From American Idiot, The Musical

There’s been a lot of talk in the Risky Fuel household over the years about things like Pippin, Cabaret, and Hair. All of it by Sarah.

She’s moderately obsessed with musicals and has crafted a number of fake ones in her head. It would seem the enablers at AUX TV thought it would be cute to set her loose and reveal some of these ideas. The result: storylines for musicals about Bon Jovi, Arcade Fire, Rush, The Dandy Warhols and Brian Jonestown Massacre, Joel Plaskett, and the topper, a gay love triangle called Heavy Metal: The Musical set to Judas Priest songs.

How Kidz Bop De-Pervertizes Katy Perry Lyrics

Kidz Bop 21 is free of ANYTHING that would scare your kids

Kidz Bop 21 is free of ANYTHING that would scare your kids

There’s a thing called the Kidz Bop series and it’s a really big deal. Basically, producers get a bunch of next generation Disney kids together and they sing reworked versions of popular Top 40 radio hits with all the sex, drugs, violence, innuendo, negativity, religion, and any other potentially controversial language smoothed out of the songs and usually replaced with the words “dance” or “dance, yeah!”

Sarah spent an unnaturally long time listening to the kidz-ified versions of songs by LMFAO, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Maroon 5, Rihanna and a pile of others on the recently released Kidz Bop 21. She then compared the kidz versions to the originals to find out how youth-friendly they’ve been made.
