How Uma Thurman Feels About Fall Out Boy's "Uma Thurman"

Fall Out Boy's latest hit "Uma Thurman" was partially inspired by the actress who memorably danced with John Travolta in the Quentin Tarantino movie Pulp Fiction, but the band says they just didn't feel right about using her name unless they cleared it with her first. "We wanted to call the song 'Uma Thurman' and we just reached out to make sure that -- I dunno what the legalities of it are -- but we just wanted to kind of do the right thing," Fall Out Boy bass player Pete Wentz tells ABC Radio.

Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth's "See You Again" Still No. 1 on Songs of the Summer Chart

In the race to be crowned Song of the Summer, “See You Again” by Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth seems to be the clear frontrunner.

It’s held onto the number two spot each week, and could prove to be a strong contender in the battle for the Song of the Summer title.
