Biebs At It Again

Seems like you can always count on Justin Bieber to do something silly or stupid to get back in the public eye.

This time, he took a swing at the public eye.

He was in Paris on Tuesday, walking back to his hotel after a dinner date with Kendall Jenner - because when you're in Paris, you need to break bread with a demi-Kardashian.

Anyway, there's a gaggle of photographers outside the hotel, and the Biebs plowed through them.

Yes, the same tough guy who posted this selfie on the night in question allegedly punched one reporter and came close to choking another one.

Not even a backwards baseball cap and a camouflage jacket can made this guy look tough.

That Didn't Take Long

On Wednesday, just two days after playing his final baseball game at Fenway Park in Boston, Derek Jeter has launched his new enterprise.

He’s the founding publisher of a digital company called The Players’ Tribune. A web site where athletes can tell their stories.

All throughout his farewell MLB tour, Jeter was criticized – okay, not all the time, but often enough – for not showing a lot of emotion.

In a statement released about the new venture, he says he’s not a robot. “Neither are the other athletes who at times might seem unapproachable. We all have emotions. We just need to be sure our thoughts will come across the way we intend.”

It will be a way, he says, for athletes to connect with fans, without any filters.

Stay tuned!

Not a Bad Idea At All

At first, it sounds like something played strictly for laughs.

Ashton Kutcher, pretending to be a product engineer for Lenovo, conducting focus groups to get feedback on the company's products.

You figure he'll goof around, put the members of the focus groups in awkward situations, and then reveal that they've been pranked.

Not so. In this clip with a group of seniors, Ashton manages to keep the conversation light and flowing without pushing for laughs, so the laughs come from the participants and the situation with Ashton simply riding herd.

Nicely played, Mr. Kutcher. And Lenovo.

This is the first in a weekly series, so be sure to go back and catch some more.

Way to Get Noticed

Here's an interesting way to get some attention to a public service announcement.

The folks at Nestle Fitness created a campaign called #CheckYourSelfie for Breast Cancer Awareness month.

The theme of the promo is simple: "Your breasts are checked out every day."

To prove that, they fixed a small camera on the partially exposed bra of an actress who then goes about her daily business, all the while recording the folks who glance at or even ogle her breasts. The video's under 90 seconds long and shows three dozen check-out instances.

Others are checking yours. "So, when was the last time you checked your own?"

Check out the promotional video... And then the explanation of the whole thing below that.

Good Reason to Stop Being a Mistress

For two seasons, Alyssa Milano has been part of ABC’s Mistresses.

This year, she will not return – and it’s by her own choice.

She announced it on Twitter this week, and I’ve got to tell you, it’s a pretty good reason.
  “… I can’t relocate. I have two babies under 4. Being a mother and wife comes first and I just can not uproot my children and separate the family by moving away. I will miss this job desperately and wish everyone the absolute best.”

Nice simple sweet resignation letter.

Not the stuff Hollywood is used to.

The producers are probably sitting in a bungalow right now, trying to figure Alyssa’s angle in all this.

Dracula Unearthed

Just in time for Halloween, archaeologists claim that they‘ve discovered a dungeon that held Vlad the Impaler.

Vlad, in case you missed that day in whatever class teaches these things, was the real-life inspiration for Dracula.

The dungeon was found in Tokat Castle in Turkey, where Vlad was held by the Turks as a political prisoner in the 15th century.

One of the archaeologists on the dig said that the castle is “completely surrounded by secret tunnels. It is very mysterious. It is hard to estimate in which room Dracula was kept, but he was around here.”

Sounds less like an historical find than a prelude to a haunted castle tour, doesn’t it?

Aretha's Back

Aretha Franklin appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman on Monday night, mashing up a cover of Adele's "Rolling in the Deep" with a rendition of "Ain't No Mountain High Enough."

The cover portion was a little awkward - maybe Adele's song wasn't quite right for her - but she really heated up on the second and closing part.

She's 72 years old, and she is still the Queen of Soul.

And that's why she earned a standing ovation. Check it out - see what you think.

Zombies With Personality

The folks at Bad Lip Reading are at it again.

They take clips from movies and TV shows and sporting events and redub the dialogue with pretty hilarious results.

This time, they're taking a crack at The Walking Dead.

Check it out - and see if you don't agree that apples have nothing to do with dolphins...

Can You Fix It With a Tweet?

Olympic champion Michael Phelps is back in the news - this time after being arrested yesterday for driving under the influence in Baltimore.

This is his second arrest for the same offense - the first one coming ten years ago.

As so many do these days, he jumped on Twitter almost immediately to explain and apologize.
  Who needs a lawyer or a publicist when you can Tweet?

Pay It Forward & Then Some

A couple in Iowa went out to celebrate their sixth wedding anniversary and got some pretty lousy service at a local restaurant.

Twenty minutes to get water, 40 minutes for an appetizer, 60 minutes to get their entree.

But they realized it wasn't the waiter's fault - he was doing everything he could, handling 12 tables in a short-staffed situation.

And the couple - Makenzie and Steven Schultz - knew what it was like. They'd met working as waiters, and they felt for the overworked server.

So, instead of getting mad, they tipped him $100 on a $67 tab, and wrote a note: "We've been in your shoes. Paying it forward."

Makenzie posted the image to her Facebook account, and it went viral. Over 1.5 million likes and close to 200,000 shares at last count.

Pretty cool story... Of course, it didn't do much for the restaurant, but I'll bet the server doesn't care.
