When Luke Bryan Borrows Your Phone

Texting With a Fan's Friends at Concert.  You know when you’re scrolling through someone else’s text messages — when you finally look up from the phone, an hour has gone by? Me neither.  But that’s kind of what happened at a Luke Bryan show on Sunday night (June 25), when he borrowed a fan’s phone to look up lyrics to one of his new tunes.

When text messages started popping up on the screen, Bryan couldn’t resist. So he started reading Erin’s texts, then started reading them aloud to the crowd, then started responding to the texts on her behalf.

It was during Bryan’s song “Like You Say You Do.” It’s so new that he didn’t really have the lyrics memorized, so he asked Erin if he could borrow her phone to look up the words. That’s when the texts started rolling in.

“Do you want a drink?” one of Erin’s friends asked.

“Chill your broke ass out” was Bryan’s reply.

After the friend responded with a string of emojis, Bryan determined that all was well.

“He cool, we good,” he said, adding, “Hold on, let me get back to Safari. Can I go through your photos, too? No, I’m just playin’.”

Erin was quick to tweet a video of the whole encounterBottom of Form

QUESTION OF THE DAYI have a friend who called for advice on who to hire to fix his dishwasher yesterday (if anyone needs help on finding someone to fix something that's broken, they call me because they know I can NOT fix ANYTHING by myself and MUST know a guy who knows a guy)... so anyways, the story goes like this.  His father-in-law was visiting and decided he'd clean their dishwasher while he was in town and bored, but while doing it - he found some sippy straws and what he thought was a marble in the dishwasher. So he threw it all away. He leaves the next day - and all of a sudden the dishwasher won't drain.  He called a plumber friend of theirs over who took it apart enough to see that his father-in-law ACTUALLY threw away the ball that regulates the dishwasher draining... and it wasn't a marble at all.  They've dubbed it "The $300 Marble" as that's what their plumber friend had guessed it would cost to fix.  Everybody has a story like this.  What's YOUR $300 marble?  Q-tips down the toilet netted us a hefty bill a while back.  How about you?  (Broc)

HOLLYWOOD

An R2-D2 droid that was used in several "Star Wars" films has sold at auction for nearly $3 million.  The auction house Profiles in History said the 43-inch tall unit that was compiled from parts used throughout filming of the original trilogy sold for $2.76 million at an auction Wednesday.  There was no information about who purchased the droid, which was the most expensive item offered in a movie memorabilia auction that included numerous props from the "Star Wars" franchise. Other items up for sale included Luke Skywalker's lightsaber from the first two films, which sold for $450,000 and Darth Vader's helmet from the original film sold for $96,000.

Does Niall Horan want more than just friendship from Katy Perry?  Katy Perry put Niall Horan on blast during an interview earlier this week — but it was all out of love! She said “Niall’s amazing, I love him. I see him around all the time.  He’s always trying to get my number to, like, maybe flirt with me?  But I’m like, I could babysit you! I’m like your mom!”  Now, Niall wants Katy to STOP BEING MEAN!  In an interview after Katy's statements, he begged Katy to "Stop being mean to me!” He said “She’s just finding any excuse now just to patronize me and go around spreading rumors about me. I just want to be your friend!” It sounds like most of it's all in fun, but maybe he DOES want something more - as he wrapped up the conversation saying “She’s talking like she’s about 55 years older than me.  She’s not that much older than me.”   Oddly enough, my wife is a little more than 9 years older than I am – and we’ve made it for eleven years and counting!

Professional golfer Rickie Fowler made one military family very happy Wednesday at the Quicken Loans National.  Playing a practice round, Fowler used a special caddie, SFC Bryane Greene, on the 18th hole. Greene had just returned to the States after three and a half years overseas, and Fowler helped give he and his family a special reunion.  The two enjoyed a casual stroll down the 18th fairway. Fowler, not pleased with his second shot, jokingly made sure everyone knew he miss hit it, and it was not Greene's fault.  It was about that point that Greene’s family spotted him , and rushed out onto the green to greet him with tears and hugs.
