  • UPDATE: Multiple sources are reporting the QVC host featured in this video is Shawn Killinger and not Jane Treacy

    QVC shopping channel host Shawn Killinger and designer Isaac Mizrahi found themselves in a heated discussion — not about spring fashion trends but whether or not the moon is a planet.

    It all started with Killinger's comment about one of Mizrahi’s sweaters, “It kind of looks like what the Earth looks like when you're a bazillion miles away from the planet Moon.”

    “The planet Moon…” replied Mizrahi.

    “From the planet Moon?… From the moon,” Killinger said. “Isn’t the moon a star?”

    Needless to say, the segment was all downhill from there.

    The two continued to discuss whether or not the moon was a planet or a star. But we’ll just end the debate right here. According to NASA, the moon is classified as neither a star nor a planet, but rather as the Earth’s satellite. Thank you QVC for this teachable moment.

  • And now, presenting one New York City straphanger telling someone to put a sock in it — with song! Rob Maiale from Brooklyn objected to what he believes was a hateful speech on the M train. So he did what any karaoke all-star would do. He silenced the man with a childhood classic, “(I’ve Got a) Golden Ticket” from “Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory.”
     
    Maiale spoke to Yahoo News about what made him spring into action. He said the man was asking a lesbian couple on the train how they would tell their children they were “living in sin and are going to go to hell?” Maiale said. “When he was just ranting, it was irksome, but I let it slide. When he began picking people out, and I saw how uncomfortable they were, I decided I wasn’t going to let him speak anymore.” And as for his choice of song, Maiale told us it was one of his favorite childhood songs, and that in the moment, it felt like the perfect antithesis to the messages the man was preaching. He said, “It’s a song about joy, about

  • Chameleons are best known for being able to adapt their colors to their environment. But did you know they can also change into professional bowlers? Well, sort of. In a new video on YouTube, two players went head-to-head to be crowned king bowling chameleon. A bug was carefully placed near the pins to give the animals an incentive to play. Using their super sticky tongues, the chameleons reached for the bug and knocked pins over in the process.

    The video comes from the geniuses at Hello Denizen — you probably know them best for their viral video “Tiny Hamsters Eating Tiny Burritos.” They make a special note on the video that “no visual or special effects were used, everything you see on screen is real.” A few YouTube commenters are upset that the bug was not placed in the same spot every time. Really, people? This isn’t the Olympics; it’s chameleon bowling. Anything goes!

    Move over Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson: There are new wedding crashers in town.

    Adam Levine and his Maroon 5 bandmates took wedding crashing to a new level when they surprised several brides and grooms on their big day with a performance.

    A rep from Maroon 5 said only the grooms knew about the performance — a risky move for a new husband!

    The stunt was captured for the band’s new music video “Sugar” and was directed by — you guessed it — “Wedding Crashers” director David Dobkin.

    “It was an out-of-body experience,” Levine said in a statement. “I had no idea I would be affected by the overwhelming reactions we received from the couples and guests. Being able to create an unforgettable experience for several people was the highlight of it all.”

  • The hottest ticket in California at the end of February may not be for the Oscars. It just might be this invitation to a toddler’s first birthday party.
     
    Calvin Le came up with the ultimate way to invite friends and family to his almost 1-year-old son Evan’s big bash on Feb. 21. He included an electric dance music (aka EDM) video for the event’s private Facebook invitation. The video features little Evan playing the role of DJ, sporting cool headphones while he’s working the turntable.

    “The equipment is part of a video game called DJ Hero.” Calvin told Yahoo News. “I am totally into the EDM scene. Evan started playing with the equipment, and I thought maybe I could film this and include it in our Facebook invite.” Friends enjoyed the video so much that they encouraged Calvin to post it to YouTube.
     
    Calvin might have a leg up in the video production game; he owns Calvin Le Films in San Francisco, which specializes in wedding videography.
