The Florida Panthers had a "Spacey in Space" night and guess who showed up to join in? That's right, Kevin Spacey. For some reason he's become a bizarre celebrity good luck charm for the team and he's finally come out to see them. 

Unfortunately, they lost that game 5-3, but they still seemed happy to see him.

It seems like nothing is going right for Madonna during her Australian tour.  She's already made headlines for being accused of performing under the influence and for another concert that started two hours late.  

Apparently, this latest incident was during some kind of butt spanking interlude which stars like Ariana Grande have previously participated in. This time, 17-year-old Australian model, Josephine Georgiou, was the honored recipient.

With just a tug on her shirt, Madonna caused a wardrobe malfunction that obviously left everyone a little surprised. A lot of people are pretty upset about this because of Georgiou's age and because Madonna's "recovery" included some joking about sexual harassment. Don't feel embarrassed on Georgiou's account, though. She told Courier Mail, "Only I get to decide if I'm humiliated or not. Why would people assume I am humiliated by my own breast, nipple or body?"

Emma Watson has been taking some time off from acting to focus on her work with HeForShe, an organization dedicated to gender equality. In this video she gets talked into beatboxing while Lin-Manuel Miranda, creator of Broadway hits like Hamilton the musical, freestyles about (what else?) gender equality. 

She's.. definitely learning some new skills.

You've probably learned about vestigial organs in Biology class by now. There are a lot of things that aren't important to humans any more but we've still held onto them in some way. If you've ever seen someone wiggle their ears, it's obvious. 

This video shows some of those unnecessary parts and why we used to have them. It also goes into detail about the way that some humans have actually lost those extra pieces. 



That's evolution at work.

A Florida high school thought it would be a good idea to bring in some kind of basketball/fire breathing stunt to perform at a pep rally. 

The fire breather, Ricky Charles, is not a novice but he managed to engulf himself in flames while fire breathing on a bouncy castle. 

He's reportedly dealing with some burns on his face but he's going to be fine.  You can watch this video for a play by play of what happened and a picture/description of his injury.

Amid growing controversy surrounding Seaworld's orca whales, they have finally vowed to stop orca breeding.  

Since the release of 'Blackfish', a documentary that puts orca whale captivity in a very negative light (see the trailer below) the shows and captive breeding program at SeaWorld seem to have lost their charm.  



As SeaWorld put it in a statement about the decision to stop breeding orca whales, attitudes are changing:

We're changing because attitudes about animals under human care have evolved and we need to evolve with them. And make no mistake: we have all played a big part in why society has evolved on this issue. 

When we opened our doors more than 50 years ago, killer whales were feared and hunted. Now, orcas are among the most beloved marine mammals on the planet. One reason why is more than 400 million people came to our parks and fell in love with our whales.

So in many ways, SeaWorld faced the ultimate paradox. Our whales are one of the biggest reasons people visit our parks. At the same time large animals like orcas under human care were a growing concern for many people. The world changed -- and today SeaWorld is changing with it.
