Honey Boo Boo and Her Family Were in a Bad Car Accident
HONEY BOO BOO and her family were in a bad car accident on Monday night.  
The family was all riding in a Chevy Suburban that was being driven by Sugar Bear.  According to reports, they were stopped at an intersection waiting to turn left.
The light turned green . . . Sugar Bear turned . . . and a truck that was allegedly speeding in the opposite direction with its lights off crashed into them.
They were all hospitalized with minor injuries.  Sugar Bear has a bruised back, Mama June has a sprained back and neck, Honey Boo Boo hit her head against a window and had a headache, and Pumpkin has, quote, "severe chest bruises and is having panic attacks."
Mama June later said, quote, "It was really scary for us, since it was the first time any of us had ever been in a wreck.  We are definitely really sore today."
Sting Makes $2,000 Every Single Day . . . Because Diddy Didn't Ask for Permission to Sample The Police on "I'll Be Missing You"
STING makes a good deal of money off touring and his back catalog, but he makes $2,000 every day . . . for ONE song . . . A song that, technically, he didn't have anything to do with.  That's $730,000 a year!
It's DIDDY'S 1997 tribute to THE NOTORIOUS B.I.G., "I'll Be Missing You", which HEAVILY incorporates THE POLICE'S 1983 hit, "Every Breath You Take".
Neither Diddy, nor his label, asked for permission to use it.  If they had, Sting would've probably been entitled to a 25% cut.  But since they didn't, Sting was able to demand AND receive 100% of the remix's publishing royalties.
The crazy thing is that Sting's voice isn't on Diddy's track . . . and neither are STEWART COPELAND'S drums.  It's just ANDY SUMMERS' guitar riff.  But Andy doesn't get a dime, because he didn't push for a co-writing credit on the original.
Since he came up with the riff, Andy has called this, quote, "The major rip-off of all time."
Sting has reportedly made $20- to $40 million off "I'll Be Missing You"since 1997.
Did Blue Ivy Get a $75,000 Horse for Her Second Birthday?
Blue Ivy Carter turned TWO yesterday . . . and BEYONCÉ and JAY-Z reportedly celebrated by giving her a HORSE.  But not just any horse.
The rarely-reliable MediaTakeOut.com says they bought her a $75,000 horse . . . a, quote, "full-blooded Arabian, suitable for competing in equestrian."
Carrie Underwood is the Most Popular Country Artist for 12- to 24-Year-Olds
According to a study by Edison Research, CARRIE UNDERWOOD is the most popular artist among 12- to 24-year-olds who like country music. 
82% of that group gave her a favorable rating.  Tim McGraw came in second at 80% . . . followed by Blake Shelton at 77% . . . and Luke Bryan with a 75% favorable rating.
The research was conducted November 18th through the 25th, which was BEFORE Carrie's starring role in "The Sound of Music".  That aired December 5th on NBC.
