Dwyane Wade made prom a night to remember for Archbishop Coleman Carroll High School senior Nicole Muxo when he surprised her at the event with flowers and a single dance, WSVN in Miami reported Saturday.
Muxo had invited the 31-year-old Miami Heat guard to the dance with a modest YouTube video, in which she said:
Wade told the Miami Herald that he thought he'd be too busy to attend the dance, but changed his mind at the last minute when he saw a break in his schedule.
"I said, 'I won’t be doing nothing tomorrow night and I can go and make this a memorable moment for her,'" he said.
“I’m going to remember it forever,” Muxo said of her surprise date. “This was the highlight of my senior year.”
Wade took to Twitter to spout a few words of encouragement for any teens looking for famous prom dates.
"Never be 2 scared to ask," Wade tweeted, along with the hashtag, "#dreamsdocometrue."
Kanye West debuted his new song, "New Slaves," by projecting a video onto 66 buildings around the world Friday night, just a day before the 35-year-old singer performed on "Saturday Night Live."
West posted the locations of the video projects to his website, and promoted the unusual premiere project earlier Friday night on Twitter:
NEW SONG AND VISUAL FROM MY NEW ALBUM BEING PROJECTED TONIGHT ACROSS THE GLOBE ON 66 BUILDINGS, LOCATIONS @ KANYEWEST.COM— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) May 18, 2013
Yeezy's next album is rumored to drop June 18th, a date that he mysteriously tweeted and then deleted to his sparingly used Twitter feed.
West's last album, the critically acclaimed, "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy," came out in 2010.
Holler House Tavern was decorated with hundreds of bras left by female patrons for nearly half a decade, until a Milwaukee, Wisc., city inspector decided that the sartorial decor constituted a fire hazard.
"We've had bras hanging here for 45 years. It's been a charm of the place," Holler House Tavern owner Marcy Skowronski, 87, told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel on Thursday.
"So here comes this gal, and she's walking in here like Lady Astor's pet horse, you know, and she says she wants those bras down because they're a fire hazard. Now how can a bra be a fire hazard unless someone is wearing it? Honest to God."
According to WTMJ, Skowronski complied with the city inspector's demands and piled the bar's bra collection into a corner. But she also called her local alderman, Bob Donovan, who alerted the media and contacted the Department of Neighborhood Services.
The city agreed to overturn the bra ban, which means Skowronski will get to re-hang the bras that hundreds of women have left there over the years.
"We all got bombed, all these girls. And we just decided to take our bras off and hang them up," she said of one night in the 1960s, when the tradition started.
After a flurry of rumors surrounding Beyonce's womb, Entertainment Weekly has confirmed that the "Baby Boi" singer is expecting a second child.
Beyonce spoke earlier this month about expanding her family so that baby Blue Ivy could be a big sister and have company.
After she was forced to cancel a show in Antwerp the rumors intensified, despite doctors pointing to "dehydration and exhaustion." Her dress at the Met Gala camouflaged her stomach well enough to quiet some rumors and spark some more.
Jay-Z and Beyonce have been tight-lipped about the pregnancy, but multiple sources have confirmed to E! that the new baby is already on the way.
Taryn Griffey has continued the legacy of athletics in the Griffey family, but not how recruiters expected her to.
Griffey, 18, is the daughter of baseball great Ken Griffey, Jr., and also happens to be one of the best basketball prospects in the country, the Epoch Times reported. She got offers from several top programs despite missing her entire junior year after tearing her ACL.
Griffey has turned down several offers and instead decided to join her brother at the University of Arizona, despite the school's subpar women's basketball performance. Her brother, Trey Griffey, is a red-shirt freshman wide receiver for the school. It came as a surprise to everyone -- especially her family.
"My family was pretty shocked. I hadn't said anything," Griffey said. "I didn't really know what I was thinking."
Recruiters were, too. The Dr. Phillips High School senior is No. 45 overall and No. 12 for her position in ESPN rankings. She was named the Florida High School Athletic Association's 8A player of the year, and led her team to a second straight state title.
Griffey said her brother had some pull, but that she chose Arizona for its atmosphere and coaching staff. She hopes to make a name for herself at a team that finished the 2012-13 season with a record of 12-18, including 13 losses in their final 14 games.
She said she wanted to leave a legacy, as Skylar Diggins did at Notre Dame and Brittany Griner did at Baylor.
With her ranking in the Class of 2014, Griffey is in position to leave that legacy.
Officials announced Friday that President Obama will host a concert honoring Carole King on Wednesday, the Los Angeles Times reported.
This comes in the same year King will be honored with a biopic musical, called "Beautiful: The Carole King Musical." It premieres on Broadway in spring 2013.
During the concert, the Library of Congress will present King the Gershwin Award for Popular Song. She is the first woman to win the prize. Obama has presented the award to all previous winners in his presidency: Stevie Wonder in 2009, Sir Paul McCartney in 2010 and songwriting duo Burt Bacharach and Hal David in 2012.
The concert will include performances from several popular artists, including Billy Joel, Emeli Sande, James Taylor and Gloria Estefan.
King will also perform in the concert, which is an installment of the "In Performance at the White House" series. She is known for penning hits including "You've Got A Friend" and "(You Make Me Feel Like) a Natural Woman."
It will be broadcast May 28 on PBS and streamed live on WhiteHouse.gov.
Eight months have passed since two of Marina and Kevin Krim's children were stabbed to death, allegedly by their nanny.
The Krims announced that they are expecting another baby, according to ABC.
"We are very happy to let you know that Marina is expecting a baby in the fall," the family wrote on the Facebook page of the Lulu and Leo Fund, which funds arts education in memory of their children.
In October 2012, Marina came home to find the bodies of her children in the bathtub. Lulu was 6 years old, and Leo was 2.
The Krims have a 4-year-old daughter, Nessie, who was unharmed in the incident.
Their former nanny, Yoselyn Ortega, is accused with having committed the murders. Ortega, 50, has pleaded not guilty and was found mentally fit for trial. Ortega's lawyers disagree, however, and have pushed back the trial date, People reported.
Ortega's next court date is May 21.
A 23-year-old Navy SEAL was killed and seven others injured Wednesday at Fort Knox in Kentucky when their Humvee flipped during a training incident.
Petty Officer 3rd Class Jonathan Kaloust, a Virginia Beach-based SEAL died when the humvee overturned during "tactical training," said Lt. David Lloyd, a spokesman for Naval Special Warfare Group Two. The other seven -- five SEALs and two other sailors -- were treated for minor injuries and released from a hospital the Virginia Pilot reported.
Lloyd said details of the incident remained under investigation, but were considered sensitive and could not be released.
Kaloust, who joined the Navy in 2011, was a native of Massapequa, N.Y. and a graduate of Binghamton University. He completed SEAL training last year.
In high school, Kaloust was a standout wrestler who would "hang in there" with kids who were more naturally talented than he was, his high school coach Pat Popolizio said.
Mike Goodson, a running back for the New York Jets, was arrested Thursday, USA Today reported. He remained in a county jail until Friday morning.
He is charged with simple possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia and possession of a loaded firearm.
Goodson was the passenger in a car that was stopped in New Jersey after a tow truck driver called 911 to report that the driver, Garant Evans, appeared intoxicated.
Evans and Goodson were taken to the hospital for heavy intoxication, treated, and returned to police custody.
Evans was charged with possession of a weapon by persons prohibited, as he has been convicted for a felony. He was also given a motor summons for driving while intoxicated.
Goodson and Evans were each charged with unlawful possession of a handgun, possession of hollow-point ammunition, unlawful possession of a handgun and possession of less than 50 grams of marijuana.
Hollow-point ammunition is pricier and causes more damage to targets than standard ammunition. It is not allowed to be carried in public under New Jersey law, TMZ reported.
The two were transported to the Morris County Jail. Bail for Evans was $150,000, and Goodson's was $50,000.
The Jets signed Goodson to a three-year, $6.9 million contract in March. The team has already cut two players this month for possession of marijuana: Claude Davis, defensive end; and Cliff Harris, cornerback. Each was cut the day after getting caught.
The Jets said they are aware of the report and are gathering information, the NY Daily News reported.
Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman got a surprise visit from a drug tester during her appearance on "Access Hollywood Live" Thursday.
The gold medalist and "Dancing With the Stars" finalist laughed off the unexpected guest from the World Anti-Doping Agency, charged with collecting samples at random times to ensure competitors don't use prohibited performance enhancing drugs.
"They haven't tested me since the Olympics, and they choose the final week of 'Dancing With the Stars to come!" she told hosts Billy Bush and Kit Hoover. "Out of all the days since they Olympics, they choose like, the craziest week."
Although the random nature of the tests can be inconvenient, Raisman said she doesn't really mind.
"I'm clean, so I don't have anything to worry about," she said.
Plus, she said the test, including a urine sample, wouldn't take long -- "I just drank a lot of water," she told the hosts with a laugh.
Raisman confirmed she would be back to compete for a spot on Team USA for the 2016 Olympics.
"Yes, I'm in," she said. "That's why [the tester] is here!"
