  • It can be challenging to cheer up a crying baby, but one mom has found the secret for brightening her daughter's mood: Katy Perry!

    This trending YouTube clip begins with the baby crying in the back of a car. Then, the second that Katy Perry's track "Dark Horse" begins, her expression changes from despair to "That's my jam," and she waves her arms and nods her head as the music plays.

    The video is adorable and is quickly approaching 500,000 views. 

    Some of the comments include one from Jackson Gabriel Chiang: "too cute, can't take it."

    Addressing the baby's somewhat mature reaction, Ruben Tello says, "i can't stop laughing that's my face when i hear dark horse too."

    And fan Avril Boss declares, "omg katy's power... Purrrfect"

    Even Katy Perry herself chimed in on Twitter, saying that she's "available for babysitting at 10 dollars an hour and 4 oreos."

    This reminds us of the video of a boy having his mood affected by a song; that time it was A Great Big World's "Say Something," featuring

  • You know when you find your song of the summer and you play that jam over and over and over again … until the cows come home?

    That's what this man did.

    Kansas farmer Derek Klingenberg posted a video online that's been viewed 1.1 million times. In it, he's playing "Royals" by Lorde on his trusty trombone, which seemingly summoned dozens of young cows from across an open field.

    And as lovely as his playing may be, Klingenberg admits that "when they hear it, they know they're getting a treat" a snack made of molasses. But, he adds, "They're curious. They're a good audience."

    And they really get into it. I especially enjoy the bonus call and response bit at the end to "Let's Go Band!"

    Klingenberg has been playing the trombone since the age of 5 and was part of the Kansas State University Marching Band. He is sort of a Weird Al of country music, having done other songs on YouTube: parodies of tunes by Kesha, Psy, and Miley Cyrus. His most famous cover is his take on "What Does the Fox

  • I don't know if you can call this a closet or a personal high-end department store, but take a look at the lavish walk-in wardrobe of Texas businesswoman Theresa Roemer. 

    The three-story space houses millions of dollars of goods: clothing, shoes, furs, bags, and jewelry — even a champagne bar.

    It's been in the news recently because Roemer uses it to host charitable functions for organizations, such as the Texas Children's Hospital and Child Legacy International, but over the weekend it was in the spotlight for a less fortunate situation.

    While she and her husband had stepped out for a quick dinner, an intruder broke into a downstairs restroom and headed for the closet — stealing three bags, valued at $60,000 apiece, and filling them with jewelry, including one-of-a-kind family heirlooms. In all, Roemer estimates that $800,000 to $1,000,000 was lost.

    Police suggest it was not an inside job but a professional hit. Roemer usually sets an alarm and locks the inch-and-a-half-thick glass

  • So your kid's misbehaving. How would you deliver the discipline?

    Would you ground her? Take away her Internet access? Sell her tickets online for a concert with her fave pop star, with a little name-calling for extra measure?

    In Fargo, North Dakota, Cindy Bjerke is drawing criticism for selling her daughter's Katy Perry tickets on Facebook as a punishment for her behavior.

    Bjerke posted an ad to the Fargo/Moorhead Online Garage Facebook page under the headline "Spoiled Brat Daughter Doesn't Deserve These Tickets for Sale."

    Though, Bjerke says, the post received 200 likes and several supportive comments, the page's administrator removed the ad, saying it distracts from the purpose of the page. But was the punishment too much, or too public?

    Some members of the community have said, "It's a personal issue and should be handled privately" and "I don't think I'd go as far as publicly chastising my child for the whole world to see."

    While Bjerke wanted to discipline her daughter, she didn't

  • What's Your Point of View on Those Who Get on Pointe? 

    A new ad from Under Armour might change your mind about ballet being a sport.

    The spot features a strong and sinewy 31-year-old Misty Copeland, the third African American female soloist ever to perform with the American Ballet Theatre, in an intense solo routine. She ditches the tutu and leotard for a sleek athletic ensemble, one of the styles the typically masculine brand wants to start selling to women. 

    In the video, we hear her reading a rejection letter telling a 13-year-old girl that she wasn't accepted into a ballet academy because she was too old and had the wrong kind of body. 

    Misty herself only started ballet at the age of 13 and later rose to national prominence. 

    The ad ends with Copeland smiling directly into the camera. The screen goes to black, with the caption, "I will what I want."

    Critics say that brands have used various empowerment angles when selling products to women, but that this new Under Armour ad strikes
