WWE ANNOUNCER VOICE-OVER VERSION...
Five adults and two children were involved in a terrible car accident last weekend. The teens headed to the Prom jumped out of their limo to help! It seems no one was seriously injured.
An American Airlines flight was forced to make an emergency landing and kick a woman off the plane after she refused to stop singing Whitney Houston's 'I Will Always Love You'.
The solo performance began shortly into the flight from Los Angeles to New York and her crooning quickly became too much for passengers and staff on the domestic flight last Thursday.
The pilot was forced to change course halfway through the six hour flight and make an unscheduled stop at Kansas City so officers could escort the woman from the plane.
Pennsylvania cops responding to a fender bender discovered a unique shopping/to-do list inside a car driven by a young woman who was “very out of it” when questioned by an officer following the accident.
The index card contained a list with these seven entries:

Jennifer Nettles has been off doing that whole baby thing. Not really a surprise that she is going to release a Solo Album!
Nettles' upcoming effort – as yet untitled, due out this fall – represents a number of firsts for her. It's her first major release outside the confines of Sugarland – one of country music's most beloved groups, bedecked with Grammys, CMT awards and platinum albums. "This album is different than what I've done before," she explains. "What I do with Sugarland, primarily it's stuff that starts with me and Kristian [Bush, Sugarland co-founder] writing together. It's fun to play with that masculine energy, but for this I wanted to do something really personal – more intimate and emotional."
Adds Nettles, "It's a celebration of my roots, and where I am today. I'm a different version of myself than what people might have known before – not only in my songwriting and performance, but even in the sounds on this album. It reflects a more soulful, grittier life. A lot has been lived in the time between the last record I made and now, and you can hear that."
Rick Rubin is producing it. "It's thrilling to hear her sing!" exclaims Rick Rubin. He's talking about Sugarland vocalist Jennifer Nettles, whose first solo album he's in the midst of producing. Rubin – who has worked closely with Red Hot Chili Peppers, Johnny Cash, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Beastie Boys, Linkin Park, Adele and many others – clearly knows talent. And it seems the admiration is mutual on Nettles' end as well. "I'm super-respectful of his pedigree," says the country star of the famed producer. "I still get nervous around him, in a kind of a music-crush way."
