A Pink"s campaign to build a hospital specifically for Lou Gehrig"s Disease patients has met its goal within a day.

Let me start off by saying that I am extremely excited by the new JYJ release and cannot wait to hear the rest of their comeback album. With that out of the way, the lyrics of “Back Seat,” are disappointing to hear when delivered by some of the top male artists in K-Pop.
“Back Seat” is the lead single off of the second JYJ mini album "Just Us." The release has been highly anticipated by fans and is a soulful R&B track which is clearly intended to set the mood between potential lovers. Musically, "Back Seat" is a wonderful song, but the lyrics leave a lot to be desired.
There is a clear difference between a masculine and sexy image, when compared to one that suggests female listeners should “let your feelings go, you don’t have to fight, don’t be shy, put you on my back seat
