No, that isn't a young woman with a full-grown white beard, nor is the image Photoshopped. In fact, that's a cat looking up, right in front of a person's face. This great and hilarious photo illusion, created in-camera, is what's known as a Cat Beard. Cats have been getting all the attention on the internet and now their humans are getting in on the action (with their help, of course).
I would NOT want to be in the way of these Bengal white tigers when they are hungry! Australia-based photographer Birte Person wasn't quite as afraid. With the safety of distance, she was brave enough to capture these stunning shots of the rare animals during feeding time at the Singapore Zoo. The almost extinct white tiger is caused by a rare genetic recessive gene within the Bengal tiger species. The gene produces features including white fur, black stripes, and a pink nose. The few white tigers that still survive are in protective captivity although there have been reports of a handful spotted in the wild.
33 year old Laura Fernee claims that her remarkable beauty is the reason that she doesn’t work as she was harassed by men and shunned by women in her short career. After quitting her job two years ago, she is now supported by her elderly, wealthy parents who pay $3000 (£2,000) per month for rent and utilities as well as an additional $2300 (£1,500) for designer clothes. They apparently also foot the bill for regular gym workouts and beauty treatments! According to Laura, when others see beauty as a blessing, she sees it only as a curse.
Sharkskin gloves created by an Australian designer Sruli Recht is not only dangerous for your wallet because they cost $950 for a pair. They are also dangerous for your hands. Why? Let's see.

Not all of the girls are naturally beautiful. For some of them looking beautiful is a very hard work. This is how this work looks like. Most of the girls do that every single day)
Gwen Maxwell of Sun City West, Arizona, found a coyote puppy that suffered after an almost deadly encounter with a cholla cactus. People could save the animal.
Baguette-me-nots is a Tumblr blog created by Tim Bierbaum and John Milhiser of Serious Lunch that features hilarious and bizarre photographs of famous actors and comedians using baguettes in place of everyday objects.
“Beardvertising” is a brilliant idea thought up by Lexington, Kentucky-based advertising agency Cornett-IMS allowing men with fuzzy beards to earn money by placing miniature billboard-like ads in them. A&W and Eagle One are both on board to support this genius ad concept. Whit Hiler of Cornett-IMS told Business Insider, “We’re getting a ton of emails from guys with epic beards that want to host beardboards and we’re actually in talks with some brands that want to be Beardvertisers. I think we’ll probably be seeing some beardboards in the wild before too long.”

Since last December photographer Nolan Conway has been traveling the U.S. taking fascinating portraits of McDonald’s customers for his series “Happy Meals.” So far Conway has visited about 150 restaurants in 22 states. He focuses on rural parts of the country because he finds the customers there to be more varied and interesting.
Ohio Born, Scott Scheidly who started his path towards becoming an artist at the age of 4, ate a lot of paint paste throughout his childhood apparently, and graduated from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh is quite peculiar and seems to have a great sense of humor. His paintings don't seem to be overly complicated with depth, however there's something vibrant, funny but tragic, and definitely original about his work. I liked this statement he made on his website, "I still live in Florida where I enjoy floundering about and painting pretty pictures, and I still eat paste now and again just to remind myself of my roots and how I ended up like this. Some day I hope not to be famous." Check out his awesome paintings.
This is just too cute to pass up. You've been warned!
Sexy movie bikini scenes anyone?! I'll have an order. Enjoy your Monday.
You know what we're talking about with the Instagram quote fad. Celebrities have adopted it quickly, turning clichés and corny quotes into images that they share with thousands of fans. You thought the platform was for taking photos and adding some colored filters to them? So did we. Unfortunately, the wave of corny quotes has arrived, and we don't think we can stop it.
Yahoo will be moving to the former New York Times building on 43rd Street across from Port Authority bus terminal where the tech company is set to expand. Currently Yahoo is discussing with city officials about putting up a huge illuminated sign wielding the company's name, kicking out the one the New York Times currently has on display. Ouch. The move makes a pretty big statement about modern times, with tech quite literally replacing newspaper. However it also says that the company is not messing around. The also company recently acquired Tumblr for $1.1 billion. In cash. How gangster is that? Yahoo signed a long-term lease, occupying the 9th through 12th floors out of the 15-story building. They will be sharing the building with two other tenants in the tech world: software maker 10gen and local search engine Citysearch. Yahoo’s chief executive Marissa Mayer has been making moves to bolster the company by making it rain with new ventures. However Tumblr will not feel the love: the company's 175 employees who work in NY neighborhood Murray Hill, will not be moving.
As the landscape of film keeps changing and evolving due to taste, style and technology, both critics and fans often look at the directorial debut quite differently. Quite frankly, the arrival can sometimes take years. With that said, here are five directorial debuts of films released since the start of 2012 that are not only worth watching, but have a story beyond the story as well – the third in a series of seven features made possible by the new Heineken Star Bottle.
With a new movie in theaters soon, The Bling Ring star Emma Watson is proving that she isn't little Hermoine Granger anymore with this very grown up photo shoot for W Magazine. Photographer Michael Thompson shot these dramatic shots of the young actress that have a vintage, almost-noir aesthetic with the muted colors and sensual poses. In the W Magazine interview, Watson talks about how she embraced her childhood and never wanted to grow up too fast: "I wanted to wear a sports bra until I was 22! The allure of being sexy never really held any excitement for me. I’ve never been in a terrible rush to be seen as a woman." She may not be in a rush, but the time has definitely come. This issue of W hits newsstands on May 28 and The Bling Ring will be in theaters on June 14.
Celebrities get bored. How could they not? They get famous being or doing a certain thing and then when they get tired of just having their photos taken for no reason, they decide they better branch out and do something different so there’s another reason to have their photos taken again. That’s our theory behind Paris Hilton‘s new beach club. Seems Paris has lent her name and “design skills” to the Century Properties Group, known for bringing high-end celebrity construction projects to the Philippines (Donald Trump has also designed for the group, if that tells you anything). Her project? The Paris Beach Club, which “features 3 levels of dazzling amenities all designed to Paris’ exacting specifications and aesthetic preferences.” Clicking through the sections of the site, we see the PBC has “lofty ceilings, sparkling interiors, and plush furniture,” “truly distinct illuminated hallways [with] variable colors that reflect Paris’ favorite hues,” and “a refreshing indoor restaurant [that] offers Paris’ favorite flavors.” Of course there’s also a beach bar that “exudes the same smooth vibes as the world’s best beach clubs, combining modern lines, chilled lighting, and a magnificent bar to create the ultimate beachside hangout.” And an ice cream and candy bar with a “mouth-watering selection of treats [that] will cool down every sweet tooth on a hot day.” It’s really the logical next step for the hotel chain heiress. She’s mastered the art of pampered princess-ing. She’s mastered the art of the sex tape. She’s mastered the reality show, modeling, designing clothes, creating perfume, hanging around DJs, starring in commercials and whatever other random things she could dabble in. Normally, a celeb would write a children’s book at this point in her career, but it seems pretty clear why that’s not going to be something Paris adds to her resume. No, it’s much better for her to design a beach club in the Philippines. It can’t be that different from designing weekend wear, right? Here’s a video from when the project was announced back in 2011.
Last time we checked in on Tan Mom Patricia Krentcil, she had released a rap song, ‘It’s Tan Mom,’ to which the ‘Chelsea Lately’ staff couldn’t help but bust a move. Now the full song is out, and it’s worse than you thought. In the 3-minute video, Krentcil dances around in a leopard print dress (the flames of hell flickering behind her) and, unfortunately, a bikini and wig, slurring lyrics like: “Where do you want / I’ll give you a treat / To see my goodies brown / I wanna get get get get my tan on.” In between autotuned choruses about being outside birdwatching in lieu of in a tanning booth, she claims she’s “sexier than the teen mom” (presumably Farrah Abraham) and “hotter than the Octomom.” At one point she’s also in a bedroom being groped with multiple crosses affixed to the wall behind her, and towards the end of the video, an unidentified male pops up behind a podium and says, “Don’t judge me, don’t make a deal. Don’t make a deal because I am saying it to you. I’m saying it to you. Let it be the way it is.” We have no idea who he is or what he’s talking about, but he is in Tan Mom’s music video. (Sorry, dude. Consider yourself judged.) Thankfully, some merciful soul took pity on the masses and decided not to release this thing in high definition — a move worthy of a ticker tape parade.
Sublime songstress Mary J. Blige has been hit with yet another tax lien — this one totaling $3.4 million for unpaid taxes in Bergen County, N.J. Sounds like even 2013 won’t offer her a break. According to sleuths, she owes the “IRS $574.907 from 2009, $2.2 million from 2010 and $647,604 from 2011.” This on top of her charity being sued and separate liens for just over $900K in back taxes she supposedly owes the state of New Jersey. Blige was also sued by Bank of America for not paying back a $500,000 loan or the interest. What’s more, she and her husband are the defendants in another lawsuit for defaulting on a $2.2 million loan back in November of 2012. Given this mess, one of two things must be true: Either Mary J. drowned kittens in orphans tears in a past life, or she simply doesn’t know how money works.
‘Family Guy’ fans have nothing to go all giggety about today, as Seth Macfarlane announced on Twitter that he wouldn’t be returning to host the 2014 Oscars. Don’t say we didn’t warn you. Seth took to Twitter to break the news, saying:
After news of a fresh split between ‘Twilight’ stars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson broke over the weekend, the world was on high Robsten alert — and today (May 20) he was spotted moving a bunch of his belongings and his two dogs out of K-Stew’s L.A. home. Pattinson was seen driving off with a suitcase, a bike, and two garbage bags full of items in the back of his truck, while his pooches Bear and Bernie rode along next to him in the cab. The duo are currently spending time apart in their separate homes after raising suspicion when Stewart and Pattinson spent his 27th birthday apart — Rob by having a private party that his not-yet-ex didn’t attend (or wasn’t allowed to, depending on which source you read), and Kristen by moping around with her friends. Insiders close to the couple say they wouldn’t be surprised if they got back together eventually (which, oddly, looks an awful lot like the pair when they’re not together at all). But time will tell.
