  • Chris Brown Slammed Over Billboard Awards Lip-Syncing

    R&B star Chris Brown is in the middle of controversy once again, this time over whether he may have turned up the music a little too much during his dance-heavy performance at the Billboard Music Awards  Sunday night.

    Brown had not even finished performing his new single "Turn the Music Up" at the star-studded awards show in Las Vegas before some of his fellow music stars began to turn up the heat on him, on Twitter.

    "What happened to people singing live???," boy band member Joe Jonas tweeted.

    "One day if I lip-sync, I hope I do it as well as him," rocker Pink wrote at nearly the same time.

    The two were criticizing the use of visuals over vocals in Brown's performance, which included BMX bike stunt troupes racing around the stage behind him as the 23-year-old performed his famous dance moves.

    Pink, of course, is no stranger to using onstage props herself, having famously included BMX bikes in her performance at the 2010 American Music Awards while she was

  • Polish Village Enacts Unique Punishment on Speedy Driver

    Villagers in Poland annoyed by the reckless antics of a speedy driver concocted their own unique style of revenge to teach the 24-year-old driver a lesson.

    Forgoing the typical method of leaving a note or, perhaps, speaking  to the driver directly, residents of Lubczyna, Poland, instead placed the driver's car atop a tree.

    U.K. newspaper The Mirror reports that when the driver, Zbigniew Filo, walked out the door to take his white Ford Escort for a drive, he found it instead hoisted to the top of a willow tree.

    "We received a call from a man saying his car was stuck in a tree, and that his neighbors had put it there," a police spokesman told the Mirror.

    Filo had reportedly been driving his Escort recklessly throughout the village for months, and without a driver's license, so villagers decided to take action.

    "Perhaps he'll think twice about his hair-raising driving and about getting a license or who knows where his next car might end up?" one neighbor told the paper.

  • Babies Draw Lion's Attention Once Again

    Lions and tigers and babies, oh my!

    Just days after a baby dressed in a black-and-white striped hoodie that made him look like a zebra drew the zealous attention of a l ion at the Oregon Zoo, another lion-and-baby encounter has been captured on camera.

    In this case, two tiny visitors attracted the attention of a very big lion at the Kansas City Zoo.

    Video of the encounter posted on YouTube and covered by the local ABC affiliate shows the young toddlers squealing  as the lion lifts his big paws to the glass wall that separates them from their curious human onlookers.

    While the lion at the Oregon Zoo was caught on camera scratching, clawing and lunging at his zebra lookalike, the lion here appears to be willing the babies to play in a game of patty cake, or at least give him a high-five.

  • Pilar Sanders Calls Deion Sanders a 'Provider,' Not a Father

    Football legend Deion Sanders has not been shy about making his real-life "War of the Roses" divorce drama public.

    Now his estranged wife, Pilar Sanders, is speaking out, accusing the man who became known as "Primetime" during his college and NFL days, of using the couple's divorce and custody battle over their three children to boost his public image.

    "I just can't believe to what extent he's willing to go just to get attention from the media," Pilar Sanders said today on "Good Morning America," alongside her attorney.  "He's a legend and he'll always be a legend in what he's accomplished on the field, but he's just not relevant to today's world.

    " I think he just wanted and needed the media attention for him to continue to do what he does, which is sell himself," she said.  "No real man would act in such a way."

    Pilar Sanders' comments come after a gag order was lifted against her following an April 23 domestic dispute between the couple at the family's  $5.7 million

  • Deion Sanders Wins Temporary Custody of Kids

    (AP Photo/Peter Kramer)NFL Hall of Famer Deion Sanders will, at least temporarily, get to live in his Texas mansion without his estranged wife and have custody of the couple's three children, a  judge ruled Monday.

    The court victory for Sanders, 44, comes after three days of court testimony over a domestic dispute last month at the couple's $5.7 million Prospect, Texas, home that resulted in a citation for Sanders and a night in jail for his estranged wife, Pilar.

    State District Judge Ray Wheless ordered Pilar Sanders, 38, to stay 500 yards away from family's home and gave Deion temporary custody of the children pending a full custody hearing.  The judge ordered that the children undergo psychological counseling.

    The couple had continued living together at their sprawling mansion on the outskirts of Dallas even after Deion Sanders filed for divorce from Pilar in December after 13 years of marriage.  Their War of the Roses divorce drama came to a head in the April 23  dispute that resulted in

  • Prince Harry Comes to U.S. for Humanitarian Honor

    Britain's Prince Harry is known around the world as the fun-loving royal but a series of appearances and a prestigious honor today in Washington, D.C., will give Harry a chance to show his more serious side.

    The 27-year-old prince will share the stage with the likes of U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon at a glittering gala tonight to accept the 2012 Award for Distinguished Humanitarian Leadership from the Atlantic Council, a Washington-based think tank.

    Harry, himself an Afghanistan veteran, will accept the award on behalf of his older brother, Prince William, for the work the pair do with military-focused charities such as Walking With the Wounded, a British charity that retrains and re-educates veterans, and Help for Heroes, which helps wounded servicemen and women.

    Harry, the third in line to the throne, spent two months in the United States last year completing a two-month helicopter training program in California and Arizona as part of a longer training program

  • 'Jetman' Flies High Over Rio de Janeiro

    Yves Rossy, the Swiss pilot who entered the history books as the first and only person  in aviation history to fly with a jet-propelled wing , has completed another death-defying stunt, flying high over the skyline of Rio de Janeiro.

    Rossy, who calls himself the "Jetman," leaped from a helicopter on Wednesday with his four-engine wing strapped to his back and circled the Rio skyline for more than 11 minutes.

    Starting above the Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas, Rossy went on to circle the Brazilian city's famous landmarks such as the "Christ the Redeemer" statue and the nearby areas of Coacabana, Ipanema and Sugar Loaf Mountain before parachuting down onto the Copacabana beach, the BBC reported.

    Video captured Rossy moving between roughly 120 and 180 miles per hour throughout the flight.

    Rossy began developing the "Jetman" project in 1993.  In 2006, after more than 15 prototypes, he  used a wing he'd created with four model jet engines to fly for five minutes and 40 seconds. He

  • Baby's Zebra Hoodie Attracts Hungry Lion at Oregon Zoo

    When Heather Baltzor got her 13-month-old son, Jack, ready for his first trip to the Oregon Zoo in Portland, she thought nothing of dressing him in a black-and-white striped hoodie.

    It was only after a video of a hungry lion aggressively trying to paw at her son through a glass-paned wall went viral that she realized perhaps a hoodie that made her son look  like a zebra was not the best zoo attire.

    "Not until after we got home and put the video on Facebook," Baltzor said today on "Good Morning America," of when she realized the buzz created by her fashion choice for her son.  "We just thought it was hilarious."

    Baltzor, from Bend, Ore., told "GMA" that the lion, identified by the zoo as the lioness Kya, singled out her son right away.

    "The lions were just laying far away on their hill and there were other kids up there but when we put Jack up there she immediately got interested and very curious and came over," Baltzor said.  "I think it was definitely the hoodie."

  • 'World's Worst Boyfriend' Explains His Prank

    George Daoud, 25, from Dayton, Ohio, has earned Internet fame, or infamy, for a video he posted on YouTube in which he pranks his girlfriend, her sister and their friend by pretending to rob their Little Rock, Ark., apartment as they came home from work.

    Dressed in a mask and holding valuables like their TV and laptop under his arm, Daoud leaps out at the three girls as they open the front door, sending the trio flying into the air and screaming at the top of their lungs.

    The video has gone viral and earned Daoud the dubious distinction of "Worst Boyfriend Ever" across the Internet.  So why would he not only pull the stunt on the woman he loves, but also post it for all the world to see?

    "I was bored one day and I thought, 'What's their biggest fear?' and I just went to the store and got a mask and pulled the prank," Daoud said today on "Good Morning America."

    Daoud appeared on "GMA" alongside the three victims of his prank, including his girlfriend of one year,
