Lady Gaga's dog walker, who was shot last week during a robbery in Hollywood when two of the singer's French Bulldogs were stolen, described the violence and his recovery from a very close call with death in social media posts. Ryan Fischer's posts included pictures taken from his hospital bed, where he says a lot of healing still needs to happen, but he looks forward to reuniting with the dogs. Police are seeking two men in the attack.

A Moroccan landscape painted by Winston Churchill and owned by Angelina Jolie has sold for more than $1.5 million, smashing the previous record for a work by Britain's World War II leader. Tower of the Koutoubia Mosque sold at Christie's Auction House Monday. The previous record price for a Churchill painting was just under 1.8 million pounds.

Queen Elizabeth II has unveiled a statue of herself virtually during a video call with officials in Australia. The new statue has become a popular attraction in Adelaide after being erected in the grounds of government house.
