Recife Beaches
Ever hear of Recife? Here's a hint: it is one of the cities that hosted the 2014 FIFA World Cup. But, it has a terrifying secret: despite its pristine beaches, people are scared out of their wits to enter the ocean -- and for good reason.

The city is in the Brazilian state of Pernambuco, and arguably, has some of the most desirable beaches in the world. However, according to a Business Insider report, if you value "life and limbs, y...

The clip is part of an old home video, where a bunch of London youngsters mess around at a birthday party. Then we cut to a teenage Amy Winehouse. She belts out a few bars of "Happy Birthday," Marilyn Monroe-style. Not surprisingly, before-she-was-famous Amy sounds really, really incredible.

Asif Kapadia, the director of Amy, spoke to ET about the scene. "There are a group of friends that she's wit...

20 Celebrities Who've Had Weight Loss Surgery

She told People magazine in September 2014: "In my opinion, [this surgery is] something that needs a little more attention for people who have suffered with morbid obesity their whole lives. This has really, really helped [me]."

The former "View" host acknowledged that the surgery didn't solve everything very quickly. "Everyone has to approach it in a way that feels right with them, [but] once ...

According to Yahoo, someone did- Carrie's husband, hockey player Mike Fisher, appeared on a local NBC station after signing a major new contract (two years, $8.8 million. Very snazzy).

But the description that ran under Mike's image was not as snazzy. The description read "Is Married To Someone Famous," which (again) is technically true, but a little on the bizarre side.

Luckily, both Mike and "Someone Famous" don't take themselves too seriously- they both cracked up ...
