Jennifer Lopez has partnered with Walden Media to make a live-action film based on Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego?, the computer game used as a teaching tool in more than half of U.S. elementary schools. 

Carmen Sandiego is also a popular animated series. Though there has been some speculation that Lopez would play the title character in the film version, the singer and American Idol judge is officially attached as the project's co-producer with Nuyorican Productions, her development team. This is not the first time Carmen Sandiego has been considered as a feature film – Disney optioned the property more than 10 years ago, but the project lapsed.

“Vans”

The Pack | 2006

Berkeley, California rappers the Pack made their footwear choice clear in 2006 with the song "Vans." The track caught the attention of Too $hort, who signed them to his imprint. MTV refused to play the video for the song, though, claiming it was essentially a commercial for the product. Rapper Lil' B disagreed. "I didn’t know nobody [at] Vans," he said. "I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
