D.C. Elementary Student Disappointed That President Obama’s Not Beyonce

President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama made a surprise stop at The Inspired Teaching School, a Washington, D.C., charter school, on Thursday afternoon to participate in a community service project.

He and other volunteers filled backpacks with books and toys for homeless children at the Inspired Teaching School to mark the September 11th National Day of Service and Remembrance. The president also assisted volunteers in building an outdoor playground.

The visit came much to the dismay of a young girl, who had hoped the surprise visitor would be Beyoncé Knowles.

Jimmy Fallon, Meghan Trainor and The Roots Sing ‘All About That Bass’ (With Classroom Instruments) [Video]

Meghan Trainor's "All About That Bass" has become an anthem of sorts for women everywhere. It's a none-to-subtle middle finger to the folks who perpetuate the idea that women aren't attractive unless they're stick thin. The song's popularity has made Trainor an instant star.

This week, she went on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" to perform, but before that, she got together with Jimmy and the Roots to perform "All About That Bass" and play it on classroom instruments. I think this is my favorite one of these videos yet.

‘Friends’ Reunion: Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow Act Out Jimmy Kimmel’s Fan Fiction

Like anyone who lived through the '90s, Jimmy Kimmel loved 'Friends,' but while being a fan of the television staple is wholly understandable, the depth of his affection is, well, perhaps not. Kimmel hosted 'Friends' star Jennifer Aniston on his show last night, and while she might have expected to chat about her latest movie, 'Life of Crime,' and share some fun tidbits and anecdotes, the host had other ideas.

RIP Robin Williams: A Look Back at Late Actor’s Best Work [Video]

Robin Williams' death is shocking and heartbreaking and touches us in a way usually reserved for close friends. Maybe that's because we're of a generation that grew up on Robin Williams. He's been making us laugh and cheering us up since we were kids; like a big-screen father figure. That he died suffering from severe depression, makes the news all the more tragic. As director Garry Marshall, who first cast Williams in 'Happy Days' and later 'Mork and Mindy,' said today, "He could make everybody happy but himself."

He made everyone happy and in that spirit, we'd like to celebrate his work, and we asked a few of our writers to look back at their favorite moments of his career.
