    In an interview with the New York Times, the "Empire State of Mind" rapper and mogul Jay-Z dished out tough criticism of the Occupy Wall Street movement, questioning its message while defending free enterprise.

    "What's the thing on the wall, what are you fighting for?" he asks in the Times.

    "I think all those things need to really declare themselves a bit more clearly. Because when you just say that 'the 1 percent is that,' that's not true.

    It's a theory made famous by companies like Target and Staples, which sell the season as "the most wonderful time of the year" in commercials that show parents dancing down store aisles that are stocked with school supplies and clothing.

    Moutafis's annual dance to "Celebration" by Kool and the Gang has made her a celebrity in her neighborhood and now a star online too. She records her celebratory dance each year, and when this year's dance was posted to YouTube, it quickly went viral.

  • Google Glass At New York Fashion Week

    The models who walked the runway at Diane von Furstenberg's show at New York Fashion week Sunday didn't only get to wear the latest from the designer's spring 2013 line. They got to wear one of the most anticipated gadgets - Google's Glass.

    A group of models walked the catwalk while wearing Google's high-tech glasses, which have a camera and screen built into them. If you haven't seen the demo, the glasses really function like a wearable computer, overlaying digital information in the real world.
