Do you ever wish you could be in two places at once? Better yet, how about 50 places at once?
Sometimes we here at Crossfade get really pissed about the fact that we're stuck in our cubicle and not traveling to India to write about vegetarianism and Lady Gaga.

We've been all over the web today, rounding up some of the most pressing pop news. And it's with great pleasure that we present Five Stories That Won't Change Your Life.
