  • Whenever singing becomes a part of a maid of honor speech, it really could go either way. But these two California sisters have schooled all the bridesmaids who came before them with an epic musical wedding toast.

    Kelsey and Maddie Hallerman broke it down to a medley of songs at their sister Caitlin’s wedding, rewriting all the lyrics to reflect the story of Caitlin and her husband, John. From Tracy Chapman’s “Give Me One Reason” to the Jackson 5’s “I Want You Back” to the Backstreet Boys “Everybody,” we think they covered all the bases.

    The idea came to the two sisters as they listened to music in a car together shortly after Caitlin got engaged.

    “Now, to know Caitlin is to know of her undying love for MJ, Tracy Chapman, Whitney, and Mariah (which we didn’t dare to attempt), and we just knew incorporating some [of] these songs would be the best way to represent her,” Kelsey told ABC.

    The bride and groom were obviously impressed, and the sisters received a standing ovation from the crowd

  • It’s turning out to be a summer full of long-lost books being released.

    First it was Harper Lee’s manuscript, “Go Set a Watchman,” a prequel to the much-beloved “To Kill a Mockingbird.” And now it’s a recently discovered new work from Dr. Seuss.

    That’s right, Dr. Seuss (also known as Theodor Seuss Geisel) is returning with a new book, “What Pet Should I Get?,” 25 years after his last published work, “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!”

    Geisel’s widow, Audrey Geisel, found the manuscript in 2013, along with black-and-white illustrations done by Dr. Seuss himself.

    The new book features some familiar faces, such as the children from the classic book, “One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish.”

    “What Pet Should I Get?” comes out on July 28, and we can’t wait to see what pet these kids get!

  • Ashley Graham is a woman on mission. The plus-size model wants to be the next Heidi Klum.

    The 27-year-old already made history as the first plus-size model to grace the pages of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition. But in a recent interview with the Coveteur, she revealed that she hopes to one day fill the shoes of her idols Kathy Ireland, Tyra Banks, Cindy Crawford and of course Heidi.

    “Those girls, I mean I’ve watched their careers and they have just blossomed into extraordinary and amazing things,” Graham said. “I can’t wait to be the curvier version of all of them.”

    Judging by her stunning new photo shoot with the Coveteur, she’ll be one of the greats before she knows it!

  • Back in 2005, NASA launched the New Horizons spacecraft, sending it on a 4.67-billion-mile journey to take pictures of Pluto.

    After nine and a half years, New Horizons is sending back pictures!

    The new images of the elusive dwarf planet captured by the spacecraft have scientists and civilians back here on planet Earth buzzing with excitement.

    Everyone is pretty impressed, but not Neil deGrasse Tyson. He tweeted:

    The director of the Hayden Planetarium is simply not psyched about this up-close and personal look at Pluto.

    "It would be totally awesome if it was a much bigger planet " he told Stephen Colbert.

    Guess for Neil deGrasse Tyson, bigger is better.

  • Amazon Prime day is over, and social media is doing what social media does best – expressing its thoughts and opinions on the matter.

    Shoppers took to social media to post about the discounts they were seeing on the site.

    If tweets are like Yelp reviews, many people probably won't be coming back for the shopping sales day marketed as “better than Black Friday”.

    Many people are saying that the sale reminded them of a giant garage sale — a lot of discounts on unwanted items.

    Reviews were rough. People were tweeting about the discounts on Pop-Tarts and the endless offerings of defunct electronics.

    Others thought the whole thing was an experiment:
