Ed Sheeran, Wedding Singer

Did you catch this one?

A radio station in Sydney, Australia had already arranged an $80,000 dream wedding for a local couple after the unemployed groom wrote to talk about their need to postpone their wedding due to personal and financial hardship.

Everything taken care of, down to the last detail.

So when a somewhat familiar wedding singer showed up, no one should have been surprised, right?

Surprised they were when Ed Sheeran walked in, strapped on his guitar and played "Thinking Out Loud," the song the couple had chosen for their first dance.

Nicely done.

And it's good to know Ed's got something to fall back on in case this recording thing falls through...

Stephen King on Indiana

Despite being a guy who chooses to write books that are over 1000 pages long, Stephen King can be short, sweet and to the point at times.

Take for instance his reaction to Indiana's controversial new Religious Freedom Restoration Act.

He's not a fan, and he puts it in a very simple light.

No novel, no novella, not even a short story needed here.

Kourtney K, Trail Blazer

The Kardashians are frequently known for taking what others do and trying to top it.

This newest one has me scratching my head though.

You've heard of breastfeeding selfies, right?

Giselle Bunchchen started the trend, posting pictures of herself feeding her children.

And Alyssa Milano has kept the trend alive.

They're called "brelfies."

Now, Kourtney is posting pictures of her using breast pumps to express her breast milk to feed her child later.

So what do we call these types of pictures? Pumpies?

After the show it's the after party.

This Land is Your Land, This Land is Lego

Jeff Fieren's a photographer from Nova Scotia who's been known to dabble in dioramas using only Lego building blocks and other lego items.

Seems like maybe he's got some spare time on his hands - maybe a lot of it.

Check out his website. He's built dioramas of each of the 50 United States.

Some are dead on: dancing girls in Nevada; folks attending a big football game in Alabama; and the Wright Brothers in North Carolina.

But others will have you scratching your head: a merry-go-round and funnel cake stand for New Jersey; two guys on swings for Ohio; and a roadway sign saying "Welcome to Delaware" immediately followed by one saying "Thanks for visiting."

Come on, guys. We all know that's a Rhode Island joke.

That's Some Expensive Texting

The general manager of the NFL's Cleveland Browns has been suspended for four games without pay and fined $250,000.

Why?

For texting to on-field personnel during games.

That's a serious wrist slap right there.

A lot tougher than the NFL's former "Give Me That Phone You'll Get It Back At The End of The Game" policy...

Available at No Stores Anywhere

James Corden's been in the late slot after Letterman for about a week now.

And he's making a bit of a splash.

This week, he had soccer star David Beckham as a guest on The Late Late Show, and they took the opportunity to debut a new clothing line.

A new underclothing line, to be precise.

You'd think more people would be taking shots at The Biebs and his Calvin Klein ads...

Bieber's Roast Airs

It seems like the roast that would never end, but the Comedy Central roast of Justin Bieber finally aired last night.

The folks at ABC News provide a two-minute summary on this morning's "The Skinny."

Check it out for a clean breakdown of the show.

If you believe the clips, it looks like the Biebs had some of the best lines of the night.

Oh No He Didn't...

Justin Bieber took the stage as a back-up singer with Ariana Grande in Miami over the weekend.

His job: help her with "Love Me Harder."

And he couldn't do it. He flubbed the lines, then gave up and started dancing on stage and greeting fans to cover for his failed memory.

He apologized repeatedly to Ariana on stage.. And he did so on Instagram afterwards as well.

Accepted or not, I'll bet it's the last time he's invited to be Ariana's back-up...
 
 

Had fun with u Ariana, even tho I forgot all the words haha

Meet the New Daily Show Host

Comedy Central announced yesterday the replacement for Jon Stewart on The Daily Show.

Just as everyone expected, the new host is... Trevor Noah?

Um, sorry, who?

Trevor's relatively new to The Daily Show.

Heck, he's relatively new to the US, having arrived at both spots back in December - four months ago - from his native South Africa.

In fact, back then, he made his debut appearance on The Daily Show as a correspondent.

Now, suddenly, he's the new host. As others scramble to find out more about him, why not just sit back and watch that debut..

The Beginning of The New World

Jay Z enlisted some top-level friends to help him announce his new streaming music service, Tidal.

Beyonce was there, of course, and Kanye. But so was Madonna, and Nicki Minaj, and Jason Aldean, and Chris Martin, and more.

Dozens of artists, in the room and on-line, to hear about and lend support to Jay Z's game changing idea.

His plan is to get consumers to pay for music they're used to streaming for free.

You laugh, but it worked for Netflix.

The man could really be on to something big here...
