William and Kate, both 30, split their time between Wales, where William serves as a pilot, and their hometown of London but today they visited Cambridge, proving that you can take the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge out of Cambridge but you can’t take the Cambridges out of Cambridge, perhaps.
"I don't pay attention to any of it. I can't," the "Liz & Dick" starsaid. "I don't really want to get into that because. I want to stay on the positive side of things."
The Material Girl surprised and delighted her New York City audience Tuesday night by bringing onstage none other than Korean pop star Psy, who, she told the crowd, flew in "all the way from Frankfurt, Germany" that morning for the special performance, according to the Associated Press.
Madonna, performing her second concert in as many days before a crowd of nearly 20,000 at Madison Square Garden, told her fans she was a fan of Psy as the duo performed his signature hit, "Gangnam Style," and her hits "Give It to Me" and "Music," while bumping and grinding onstage.
To the outside world, Nicole Kidman appeared to be living a fantasy life as the glamorous movie star wife of her larger-than-life movie star husband Tom Cruise.
In reality, she now says more than a decade after the couple's divorce, her world was much smaller during their 11-year union, and not at all what it appeared.
It's not unusual to see proud moms and dads make YouTube videos of their kids' accomplishments for family and friends, and eventually the world, to see. It is unusual to see a highlight reel of a peewee football player with stats so impressive - 35 touchdowns, 65 tackles and nearly 2,000 rushing yards - they would make an NFL scout do a double-take.
What's even more unusual is that this particular proud dad, Brent Gordon of the greater Salt Lake City-area, uploaded the video to show off the skills of his 9-year-old daughter, Samantha "Sam" Gordon.
"When she was about 3 or 4 years old and we would play soccer out in the yard with my older son … and they'd try to be a little bit rough with her and even intentionally try to kick the ball at her and she wouldn't be fazed and would keep getting up," Gordon said today via Skype on " Good Morning America." "I kind of had an idea that she's got an aggressive mentality back then."
During Tuesday night's re-election victory speech, the president didn't just share the spotlight. Some would say he was upstaged - not by his now-nearly teenage daughters but by an anonymous woman known to the world only as "hair flag lady."
The upstager-in-chief got the coveted spot of standing just behind President Obama's shoulder as he spoke to thousands of cheering Democrats in Chicago and a worldwide television audience.
You won't find these in your local Foot Locker.
These would be the three pairs of size 24, 10E custom-made shoes that the tallest man in America, Igor Vovkivinskiy, just received from Reebok.
The Canton, Mass.-based athletic shoe company gifted the 7 feet, 8 inches tall Vovkivinskiy his new shoes on Thursday, thereby growing his shoe closet from one to four.
"This is the first time in my life that I have a choice in shoes," Vovkovinskiy, 30, told the Rochester Post-Bulletin. "They look like they come right off the shelf, only better."
Vovkivinskiy, a Minnesota college student, began his very public quest for a new pair of shoes in March when he started a website to help raise funds because, a new pair of shoes for him costs as much as $15,000.
An 80-foot fall by freestyle mountain bike star Cam Zinkthat was captured on his helmet camera is giving non-thrill seekers a first-hand look at what it's like to navigate one of the sport's most treacherous events.
Zink's death-defying fall happened last weekend during the Red Bull Rampage, a semi-annual downhill mountain bike contest near Virgin, Utah, that is considered the sport's most challenging.
Zink, 26, was making his third and final practice run on the 65-foot Canyon Gap to Flat jump late Saturday when he overshot the landing ramp and, after a long free-fall in the air, crashed to the ground.
"The sun was in my eyes and it was hard to see the curve of the ramp and judge it properly so I went off how much I'd braked the run before," Zink, of Reno, Nevada, told ABCNews.com today. "As soon as I came off the lip I knew I was in trouble."
Harry, 28, is one month in to a four-month tour of duty as a chopper pilot in Afghanistan. He is stationed at Camp Bastion in Helmand province, on the front line. Citing an unnamed "military source," the Sun reports that Harry, known as Captain Wales in the British Army, is part of a four-man team on around-the-clock standby to both fire at the enemy and provide cover for aircraft rescuing wounded soldiers.
"Think World War Two Spitfire pilot and The Battle of Britain," the source told the Sun. "He can be sat in a deckchair for hours then scrambled immediately. When in the air his role is diverse."
The palace has had no comment on Harry's time in Afghanistan.
The prince, and third-in-line to the British throne, also served a tour of duty in Afghanistan in 2008 that was cut short because of publicity and concerns for the safety of him and his fellow soldiers.

Can Jennifer Aniston do for a line of hair care products what she did for the shag haircut?
The former "Friends" star - whose shag hairstyle while on the show earned its own moniker, "The Rachel," and sent countless women running to their hair salons to copy it - hopes she can. She has not only inked a deal as a spokeswoman for the Living Proof line of hair care products, she's also taken the more unusual step of investing in the Massachusetts-based company.
