Contrary to what your Debbie Downer friends may have told you, the Ice Bucket Challenge is a success. Period. End of sentence. It doesn’t matter whether or not everyone mentioned ALS or Lou Gehrig’s Disease in their video.
And we’re down to three. The NFL has reportedly narrowed the pool from every musician in the world down to 2 solo acts and 1 band in the race to play the Super Bowl Halftime Show. The eventual winner and the two finalists and eventual losers are, in no particular order, Rihanna, Katy Perry and Coldplay.
Vin Diesel took on the ice bucket challenge, dumping a steel pot full of ice cubes all over himself before dropping the same challenge on three very familiar names: Michelle Obama, Angelina Jolie and Putin -- presumably Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin. Because why not?
Taylor Swift is ready to "Shake it Off" with a brand new music video and, coming soon, a new album! Fans were hopeful that today's big Yahoo Livestream featuring the pop star would deliver news that a new album might be on the way and sure enough, it's coming this October and it's titled 1989. That just so happens o be the year Taylor Swift was born. And maybe we're seeing a bit of 1989 in some of the hip hop and boom box action in the video above.
If you've been on Facebook or Twitter the past couple of weeks, you've likely been inundated by friends and family posting vids of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

Harry Potter is clearly on J.K. Rowling's mind these days, and that's just as well as she's penning the screenplay for the anticipated Fantastic Beasts trilogy. But it isn't Hippogriffs and Hinkypunks that she's written about most recently.
Since Robin Williams’ shocking and tragic death earlier this week, many of the comedian’s biggest fans have been waiting for an a-ha moment that would suddenly explain why he took his own life.
The auction currently is underway. It’s scheduled to last for 10 days. To give you an idea of how this book could price, Nicolas Cage once owned a copy of Action Comics No. 1 that was slightly less pristine than the one in Adams’ hands. It sold back in 2011 for $2.16 million.
Paul Walker was a man of many passions. His interest in cars and speed was well chronicled thanks to his participation in the Fast & Furious franchise, but beyond that, he was actually very interested in the ocean. He studied marine biology in college, and at one point, he apparently considered quitting acting in order to focus full time on the sea.
The full story of what happened during Robin Williams’ final hours won’t officially be released by the Marin County Sheriff’s Office until more interviews are conducted and the toxicology test comes back, but earlier today, a spokesman offered enough specifics to outline the general picture. As expected, they’re pretty haunting and paint the picture of a desperate man who needed a way out.
Contrary to the hyper-emotional manchild he’s played in a lot of his movies, Adam Sandler is, by all accounts, a pretty mild-mannered and reasonable guy in real life.
After the video of Chris Pratt rapping Dr. Dre and Eminem's "Forgot About Dre" went viral, it was surely only a matter of time before someone remixed that video with the music from the actual song.

Thanks to a web of complicated tax issues, the improvement of travel and the ability to find good help almost anywhere, more and more movies have started filming outside of Los Angeles.
Pocket aces is a good hand, but it's not an unbeatable hand in Texas Hold'em. One poker player learned that lesson the hard way, as evidenced by the above video, which shows poker players Connor Drinan and Cary Katz going all in. Each of them has a great hand, but as is often the case, one of them has a better hand. It all comes down to the river!
