Quick Hits: Bob Dylan, Lady Gaga, Paul McCartney, Greg Allman
April 27, 2012

Bob Dylan has been named one of 13 honorees for the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest possible honor for a U.S. civilian.  According to a White House announcement, the Medal of Freedom is given to "individuals who have made especially meritorious contributions to the security or national interests of the United States, to world peace, or to cultural or other significant public or private endeavors." The medals will be handed out sometime later this spring. 


Lady Gaga
Protestors in South Korea are speaking out against Lady Gaga's planned concert tonight (4/27) in Seoul. According to Reuters, the Christian Council of Korea has called Gaga's live show "too homosexual and pornographic." The South Korean government has already banned anyone under 18 years old from attending the concert.

Paul McCartney made a surprise cameo appearance on NBC's 30 Rock last night. The sitcom aired live (with a second live performance for the West Coast) and McCartney showed up at the beginning of the live episode, getting a tour of the NBC offices (and slapping Alec Baldwin's Jack Donaghy), returning at the end of the show. However, the West Coast version of the show featured Kim Kardashian in Sir Paul's place.

Greg Allman is undergoing diagnostic cardiac testing stemming from his hernia operation today, to determine if any additional medical attention may be required. Allman also received a liver transplant in 2010. Due to his health, Allman has postponed a promotional tour for his new memoir, My Cross To Bear, on sale next Tuesday, May 1.
