New Album Releases To Check Out This Week

May 5th, 2015 11:19am EDT
Mumford & Sons Leads Albums To Check Out
April was a slower month for new album releases across the board. It wasn’t quite like “watching paint dry,” but there was an absence of blockbuster releases with staying power. A perfect example of the lack of staying power – Shawn Mendes’ Handwritten debuted at #1 and proceeded to fall to #17 the following week. May is much more promising from the jump, as there are many notable releases dropping on an off-cycle May 4 (Monday) release date. Leading the charge is Mumford & Sons, but they are by no means the sole attraction this week.

Bodybuilder Romario Dos Santos Nearly Lost His Arms After Inject
Three years ago, Brazilian bodybuilder Romario Dos Santos, 25, changed his life after he was introduced to synthol - a mixture of oil, alcohol and painkillers that make one's muscles bigger. He regularly started injecting himself with the dangerous cocktail, and his biceps grew to more than 25 inches. He later faced amputation after the muscles turned to "rock."

His size has intimidated and even scared people. During an interview that aired on Barcroft TV, he explained that while working at a Catholic church, one of the congregants came up to him and said: "My daughter is 12 and she won't ...

But is the look real or a wig? She posted pics on Instagram, teasing fans that she was chopping off her locks (while doing a handstand).

One fan commented, "That hair is my ABSOLUTE FAVE!!!" while another add...
