Thousands of teenyboppers drag their parents to the sold-out Hannah Montana concert at FedExForum. Who on earth is Hannah Montana?

Her real name is Miley Cyrus, and she's in this Disney TV series where she plays a rock star who masquerades as a high school student, and — oh, forget it. We don't understand it either.

Just before the property went on the auction block, Justin Timberlake's family decided to purchase the Big Creek golf course. We think that's a smart move and a wise investment.
