no title

That's so Raven?!

Recently, a grassroots campaign called "Women On 20s" started a viral frenzy when they proposed that former president Andrew Jackson be taken off the $20 bill and replaced with African-American abolitionist Harriet Tubman — who during the 1800s used the Underground Railroad to rescue approximately seventy family and friends from slavery.

Well apparently Tubman's work just doesn't impress Raven-Symoné!

On Wednesday's episode of The View, the former child star revealed that she didn't like the idea of putting the historical legend on such currency!

Danny Devito, Jack Nicholson and Susan Sarandon are amongst Sunday's inductees into the New Jersey Hall of Fame.

The actors joined author Judy Blume, Frankie Valli and Bruce Springsteen for the event.

"He has Jersey attitude pouring out of him, even when he is standing still. (His) persona exemplifies what it means to be one of us," said The Boss about Devito.

The two then sang Glory Days in front of an audience that included Buzz Aldrin and Joe Pesci.

WTF?!

Even Jack was there - and it meant so much to him that he missed a Lakers game to attend!

"I could sing the praises of New Jersey all night," said Nicholson.

Past inductees include Springsteen, Toni Morrison and Harriet Tubman.

And coming soon…Snooki?!
