Yet, he can appear on Letterman and have a fundraiser with JayZ and Beyonce.

That’s the way it went down for recently graduated Duke University frat boy Mike Posner, whose Top 10 hit “Cooler Than Me” has been all over the radio this summer. The 22-year-old visits Tempe in support of his debut album, last month’s “31 Minutes to Takeoff.”
Organizers for the all-star "Hope for Haiti Now" telethon say the event raised $57 million — and counting.
