  • Will Butler was planning on writing a song about the Madonna-featuring BRIT Awards for the fourth installment of his week-long series of stories based on news headlines from the UK newspaper The Guardian. However, the discovery of a black hole 12 billion times larger than the sun and nearly as old as the universe caught his attention. "I'm not terrified were going to get sucked into a black hole," he wrote. "I'm terrified that all of human art is only 50,000 years old and that nothing anything any of us do will ever matter. jk lol Bwahahahhahahahhaha. Madonna can't save us now."
