When Lennon split from the Beatles, there was Yoko. Brad and Jen—Angelina. But what could have caused a split
between two of candy’s most synonymous names? Mike’s music, apparently. At least that’s what Ike says in a new marketing campaign that aims to introduce the chewy candies to a new generation. The campaign kicked off with an announcement of their separation. Team Ike.
If Mike and Ike are going to make it through this trying time, they had better not be a sale item on the shelves at Rite Aid. If so, consumers probably wouldn’t find any of the candy in stock, as is the case with a large portion of the store’s advertised, discounted products nearly 80 percent of the time

At 90 years young, Betty White shows you’re never too old to learn new tricks. Only this time, the trick was on her “Hot in Cleveland” costar Valerie Bertinelli. When an “official” Betty White Twitter handle

Meanwhile, over at Fox’s rival CNN, Anderson Cooper’s on-air composure met its demise
(again), this time at the mention of a pussy willow.
Cooper isn’t the only one losing it. Advertising Age reports
that magazine publishers are losing out on marketing dollars in large part due to the budget allocation of food, drug, and auto advertisers.
It was one particular magazine that landed Panamanian soccer star Felipe Baloy in some hot water. But his gaffe provides a valuable lesson to any professional athletes: When you take photos with your young fans, don’t

in your hands. Of course, I’m sure he reads it for the articles.
Lady Gaga is in some hot water with her Little Monsters for sending a tweet with the hashtag #PopSingersDontEat
. According to the pop star, they just drink
Either way, I’m sure Gaga could use a hug right about now. Lucky for her, Coca-Cola has a soda machine
