ROWLING REACHES OUT TO SHOOTING VICTIM

A Texas teenager gets a special letter from Harry Potter author JK Rowling.

The brave young woman survived a deadly shooting outside Houston – that killed her parents and four siblings.

She’s a fan of Harry Potter and quoted a line from Albus Dumbledore – one of the characters — while thanking people for their support.

“Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light,” said Cassidy Stay, just three days after her family was killed.

Her inspirational message and spirit spread through social media and sparked a Facebook page called, “we want JK Rowling to meet Cassidy Stay.”

On the page, a friend of Cassidy’s confirms Rowling hand-wrote the teen a personalized letter from “Dumbledore”… with purple ink.

Rowling also sent a wand, acceptance letter to Hogwarts and an autographed book.

WEIRD AL TO SUPER BOWL?

We’re just a day away from the start of the football season — at least for the Dallas Cowboys — but some faithful are already lobbying for a certain Super Bowl half-time performer.

He just released the first number one album of his 30-year career — and Weird Al Yankovic says it’s his last.

Some fans want to see him finish his

So why not send Weird Al Yankovic off on top as this year’s super bowl halftime entertainment?

The music videos for Weird Al’s 14th album have racked up millions of views.

A change.org petition for him to be the Super Bowl performer had eight thousand signatures by Wednesday afternoon.

The guy who started it says Weird Al would be a family-friendly performer who would appeal to all generations.

OBAMA GETS FANCY

President Barack Obama takes on the song of the summer.

She’s no Weird Al, but Iggy Azalea has a few chart topping hits of her own — including this one that just got the presidential treatment.

This is just the latest song to get the Barack Obama lip dub treatment.

There are dozens of them from every artist you can imagine — with millions of YouTube views.

The guy behind the videos says he’ll post another one this month for Arianna Grande’s song Problem.
