People are telling singer Phil Collins "I Don't Care Anymore" about your music.

And the Internet wasn't very kind about that announcement.

A petition on simply titled "Phil Collins Must Be Stopped" has over 1,500 signatures.

Comments on the petition aren't too flattering.

Well, at least one demographic is excited Collins is making a comeback: Dads.

The Boo Boo is back!

'Mama June,' mother of reality TV star and tiny monster 'Honey Boo Boo,' announced on Facebook this weekend that the family would again be featured on a TV show.

Their hit show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo was canceled by TLC last year after it was alleged Mama June was dating a registered sex offender, a claim she denies.

The post on the official Honey Boo Boo Facebook page says the new reality show will debut in December. But it will not be on TLC.

It also uses no periods between sentence, so have fun trying to decipher any hidden meanings.

What will the new show hold? We can only guess.

And pray we get more sweet tunes like this.

Attention all 90's kids—time is a flat circle.

Surge, the popular soda that has been discontinued since 2003, is now back on store shelves in the United States. Although the beverage has been available online since 2014, today marks the first day customers can hop on down to their local supermarket and pick up the sugary drink.

The company announced the return on Twitter back in August in a larger than life way.

The big news should be taken with a grain of salt if you don't live in the Midwest, East Coast or the South. Go to the Surge website to see if the drink is in your area.

If you can't get Surge in your area, just watch this ridiculous, stereotypical 90's commercial for the soda. And be jealous. Be very, very jealous.
