  • We were all heartbroken when Kermit and Miss Piggy announced their split in early August. But it looks like Miss Piggy has a new man in her life.

    Liam Hemsworth finally joined the world of Instagram, and his debut post was a flirtatious photo with none other than Miss Piggy.

    In the caption he wrote: “Spent Friday with the most beautiful girl in the world. Kermit, #SorryNotSorry. #TheMuppets #misspiggy”

    The photo was a tease for Hemsworth's upcoming appearance on ABC’s “The Muppets,” but we think you can't fake that type of chemistry.

    Watch out, Kermit. If you were looking to rekindle your relationship with Miss Piggy, you may have some competition.

  • In July, Café Art, a London-based arts initiative, came up with an ingenious way to help the homeless express themselves through art.

    The group gave 100 Fujifilm disposable cameras to people living on the streets around London and asked them to take pictures that would represent the theme “My London.”

    Camera recipients were also given training from the Royal Photographic Society.

    Eighty of the 100 cameras were returned with more than 2,500 pictures taken, and the results are stunning.

    From the thousands of photos, the top 20 were chosen by a panel made up of representatives from Fujifilm, Amateur Photographer magazine, the London Photo Festival, Christie’s and Homeless Link.

    Café Art started a Kickstarter campaign to raise money to turn the photos into a 2016 “My London” calendar. They have already met their $7,053 goal.

    According to Café Art, “All the money raised goes back into the project, either to pay for the printing of the photographs and calendar, rewarding the winning

  • Hugh Jackman has once again shown us that he isn’t just a superhero on the big screen.

    The actor surprised a 9-year-old “Wolverine” superfan named Domenic, who has cystic fibrosis, while he was on the Australian radio program “The Kyle and Jackie O Show.”

    The hosts told Domenic he would be able to talk to Jackman on the phone — but he didn’t know the action star was actually hiding in another room.

    “Hey Hugh, we’ve got Domenic here, who is one of your biggest fans,” Jackie told Jackman on the phone. “He’s a young boy who thinks ‘Wolverine’ is just awesome, and that you’re great.”

    “What’s your favorite ‘Wolverine’ action pose?" Domenic asked Jackman over the phone.

    “My favorite action pose? Well, he’s got a lot of cool poses,” Jackman replied. “Hang on one sec, mate, ’cause I’m going to find a really cool way to show you.”

    The 46-year-old actor ran into the room and struck a “Wolverine” pose before giving Domenic a really big hug.

    Jackman stayed and chatted with his young fan about his

  • This magician may have performed his greatest trick ever, turning a single woman into an engaged one.

    A London magician took to the stage to propose to his girlfriend with a trick involving alphabet soup and a piece of string. Wait, it gets better.

    After swallowing the string and soup, Neil Henry invited his girlfriend, Charlie Gardner, onstage to help him finish the trick. As she was standing next to him, he pulled the string out of his mouth with pieces of noodle on it. The letters spelled out “MARRY ME.”

    Once he cleared his mouth of both the alphabet noodles and the string, Neil finished his proposal. He got down on one knee and pulled out a ring, with a small fire trick first. Charlie blurted out "yes" more than a few times.

    Charlie had no idea that Neil was about to pop the question onstage. She told the Scottish Daily Record, “At first I thought he was going to spell out Marmite with the letters."

    Congratulations to the happy couple!

  • Taylor Swift has invited more than a few of her famous friends on stage with her during the L.A. leg of her 1989 tour.

    Guests have included Kobe Bryant, Chris Rock, Uzo Aduba, Mary J. Blige and John Legend, to name a few.  But T-Swift may have saved the best for last.

    On the final night of her tour, she introduced a performer known as Phoebe Buffay, whose previous experience was mainly singing in coffeehouses. Shortly after, Lisa Kudrow walked onto the stage and joined Swift in a rendition of “Smelly Cat.”

    That’s right: The duo performed the iconic song that Kudrow’s character, Phoebe, made famous on “Friends.”

    Kudrow wasn’t the only special guest that night — Swift also welcomed Justin Timberlake and Selena Gomez to the stage. What a way to end a sold-out five-night run at Staples Center!

    Taylor Swift, making our dreams come true since 1989.
