Video: Jessie J Serenades in NYC Subway

We were absolutely blown away by this video of Jessie J performing "Who You Are" in NYC's subway system!

"Performing is where I feel most comfortable," says the "Party in the USA" writer, who sang as a part of Giant Step and Arcade44's Boombox series.

"I love the reaction of people. Some people might put their fingers in their ears... Some people love it, some people cheer, some people leave. And it's good. It's nice. I like honest reaction. And that's what I think I get."

Check out Jessie J's serenade, above.

Zac Efron Supports Cousin at Cancer Benefit

Zac Efron took a break from his action-packed week to show support for his cousin Emily Hobson, diagnosed with cancer in 2009, at the H.O.M.E. Foundation's celebrity video game challenge at Spot 5750 in Los Angeles Tuesday night.

"When he heard I had cancer, he immediately went in support mode," said Hobson, who was diagnosed with a rare type of tissue cancer called Sarcoma in May 2009.

Efron battled Super Bowl champ Michael Strahan at a game of Madden Football to support the I'm Too Young For This! Cancer Foundation, while Strahan played in support of the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund.

"Honestly, I'm excited to play the guy," Efron told Poison Ivy before the game.

"I met him once before, he’s hilarious. We'll see. I played a little earlier today and I beat all my friends so..."

Efron also admitted that video games are a decent way for him to connect with fellow dudes.

"That’s pretty much all [guys] do," Efron laughed.

"That’s what I call male bonding."

We then asked Efron if he considered himself to be tech-savvy.

"Not really," Efron admitted. "I mean I have an iPhone."

Also showing their support at the event were Snoop Dogg, Avatar's James Pitt, Jonathan Lipnicki and Ryan Pinkston.

Way to go!
