If he can bring sexy back, why not Myspace? It’s been revealed that Justin Timberlake was a significant financial backer of Wednesday’s $35 million dollar acquisition of Myspace by digital advertising firm Specific Media from former parent News Corp. Timberlake, who played Napster founder and Facebook investor Sean Parker in the ‘The Social Network’ will “lead the business strategy” for the new version of the floundering social network. Though he will have an office at Myspace HQ in Beverly Hills, Specific Media chief executive Tim Vangerhook said that JT is “probably not going to be there every day.”
“Indoor tanning is out,” says the Canadian Dermatology Association, who’ve placed tanning beds squarely in their crosshairs with a new web PSA that shows young women singing their skin with a clothes iron, toaster and waffle iron. Ouch. The CDA hopes these exaggerated examples of frying one’s skin hammers home the dangers of tanning. According to their website:
As Della Reese once said in the 1996 Martin Lawrence classic of the same name, “It’s a thin line between love and hate.” Mackie the Boston Terrier clearly has some strong feeling about being tickled, but whether “Please sir, may I have another?” or “If you touch me again, I’m going to explode” is up for interpretation. Either way, it manifests itself with a series of delightful facial expressions the Mackie’s owner caught on camera:
For a professional singer, there are few gaffes more embarrassing than flubbing a line from 'The Star Spangled Banner.' (Are you listening, Christina Aguilera?) But when these pint-sized patriots get caught up on the lyrics, well, it's just flat-out adorable. The more mess-ups, the merrier.
Just in time for the Fourth of July, here are 10 'aww'-inspiring renditions, all from singers under 10 years old.
When a Chihuahua named Yoda took the stage, she was just the latest pup to win the title of World’s Ugliest Dog. But when she accidentally fell off, she tumbled headlong into an elite class of celebrity — those who have been caught on video taking a spill on stage, including megastars Rihanna, Beyoncé, Keith Urban and Justin Bieber. Luckily, Yoda was unharmed by the fall.
Learning to drive is certainly a new trick for Rain and Ruger, two Australian cattle dogs who were taught to operate a toy car. Their owners post clips of the pair in action on their YouTube channel, Fun With Pup And Jane, and the talented and internet-famous pups have also been featured everywhere from 'Live with Regis and Kelly' to 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show.'
As cat owners know well, kitties like to curl up in any old warm spot: a ray of sunshine, the top of a radiator and, in the case of these curious cats, in the hoods and undercarriages of cars. Check out these auto-residing felines who made it out safely, thanks to some surprised mechanics.
Given how popular Santa and his reindeer are, you might not expect a deer dashing through a church to be such a big to-do. But security camera footage of a deer decking the crowded halls of Colonial Baptist Church in Cary, North Carolina has become such a sensation, it’s already made international news. This story of forced entry and on-hoof pursuit has piqued a lot of interest. Fortunately, the deer eventually found his way to the exit and went on his merry way without causing too much harm.
Margaret lives in Germany and Evan lives in Texas. They’re both in college, which means transcontinental trips are not generally in the cards. Lucky for the young couple, Margaret’s parents decided to fly Evan in as a birthday surprise. In this heartwarming video, which was viewed more than 70,000 times on the first day it was uploaded , Margaret spots Evan at the airport instead of the family friend she was expecting. For the family friend’s sake, we’ll assume that he or she would have been greeted with an equal amount of tears of joy.
When Aptos, California resident Peter Govaars went with his daughter to examine the the damage that a two-day storm had wrought on nearby Hidden Beach, he discovered the skeleton of a digital camera. It was beaten and battered by the ocean but, amazingly, the memory card was still intact. After opening and cleaning the card with rubbing alcohol to remove the salt and sand, Govars inserted it into his computer and found 104 photographs taken in nearby Santa Cruz during a two-week period in June of 2007. The images, he concluded, had just survived a possible and remarkable four years at sea.
For most of us down here on earth, June 7th was a fairly typical day. If you happened to be on the sun, on the other hand, you would have been treated to one of the most massive solar explosions man has ever seen. It may not look all that big in the video — the footage was captured on an ultraviolet camera by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory — but remember, this is the sun we’re looking at here. It’s more than 100 times larger than the Earth.
Weird Al has been making parodies since Lady Gaga was still a Baby Gaga, so it’s pretty impressive that he’s never looked better than he does in the video for “Perform This Way,” his take on “Born This Way.” Seriously, you have to be in pretty good shape to have your head transplanted onto a woman’s body at that age. It’s a very invasive procedure, carries a lot of risk, but he comes out of it looking flawless and ready to dance. The number of costume changes alone would kill a lesser man.
