Whoa, whoa, whoa. What's this??
Organizers for the upcoming 2012 Olympic games are currently working on what could possibly be the most amazing opening ceremony ever. EVER.
Directed by Oscar-winner Danny Boyle, the show is rumored to include a supergroup that will include Sir Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Sir Mick Jagger, and John Lydon (Johnny Rotten of Sex Pistols fame).
Yes, this is blowing our minds as well.
And we're not the only ones who are excited about this. Gold medal-winning rower Sir Steve Redgrave says:
"The London Games gives us a chance to celebrate our own history… We have to show the world what we are good at. If Sir Paul McCartney and Ringo came together with great bands like the Rolling Stones and the Sex Pistols it would be fantastic. They are a huge part of our history. It would kick off the party and put us center of the world's attention."
And the universe too. Just sayin'.
We knew that the Olympics in London were going to be pretty awesome, but THIS will make it over the top!
So excited! Keeping our fingers crossed!

Okay, see that gauntlet on the floor by your feet, Jay-Z? John Lydon, formerly of the Sex Pistols, threw it there. It's on!
Seems Johnny Rotten has some beef with the rapper that we just don't quite understand. Out of nowhere, John told sources that he thought Jay-Z was only a "nonsense" act, who, in his opinion, has been proven of his mediocrity by the rocker twice. John told sources:
"I'm afraid what Jay-Z does musically is parody to me. He's just nonsense. I've never met him, but twice I've had to play on a stage opposite when he was on. One was Coachella festival and one was in Poland, and both times I pulled an enormous crowd away from him. He certainly must have noticed."
Actually, we're sure he didn't. He's kind of a busy man, with his mega music empire, his beautiful wife. his stake in a major sports team, his fashion line and having a direct line to the leader of the free world. In fact, we're fairly certain that if your name came up in conversation, he'd have no idea who you even are.
So, what else you got?
