Justin Bieber asking his stylist to change things up can cause a seismic shift with his fans.
The Biebs caused hysteria among thousands of his hair-adoring followers last Friday at a New York City Barnes & Noble when he showed up with a shorter hairdo to promote his new memoir "Justin Bieber: First Step 2 Forever."
Not only did Bieber ditch the long eye-grazing bangs, but it looked as though his signature side-swept flip was toned down, too.

But it hasn't been easy for the 20-year-old daughter of Sarah Palin. Her run in the ballroom competition was plagued with controversy because, despite consistently lower scores from the judges, fans voted her through week after week. There was even a frightening moment when a threatening package arrived at the CBS studios where the show is broadcast.
Bristol told People magazine faith got her through this and just praying all the time. She says she has learned a lot from the competion and grown so much as a person.

News from Royal officals this morning say that Prince William and Kate Middleton will marry April 29 in Westminster Abbey, the historic London church where Princess Diana's funeral was held.
Apparently the couple chose the date because they wanted a spring wedding. It is also the feast day of St. Catherine of Siena, whose name Middleton shares.
Queen Elizabeth II married at the abbey, the 1,000-year-old church in central London is where British kings and queens are crowned.
William and Kate decided against celebrating their nuptials at St. Paul's Cathedral, where William's parents married in 1981.
The palace said the royal family and the Middletons will cover the costs of the nuptials, apart from security.

If Both People In a Couple Can Answer These Three Math Questions Correctly, Odds Are You'll Be Millionaires.
We FINALLY have a reason why you should've paid attention in math class. According to a new study, if both members of a couple can answer these three math questions right, the odds are you'll be millionaires by the time you're 50.
Really. It's that simple. In the study, spouses who both answered all three of these questions right averaged a combined worth of at least $1.7 MILLION by age 50. Couples who both got all three wrong were worth under $200,000 by age 50.
Here are the three questions.
#1.) If the chance of getting a disease is 10%, how many people out of 1,000 would be expected to get the disease?
#2.) If five people all have the winning numbers in the lottery, and the prize is $2 MILLION, how much will each of them get?
#3.) Let's say you have $200 in a savings account. The account earns 10% interest per year. How much would you have in the account after two years?
--The study also found that men are the financial decision makers in 62% of the couples studied . . . and even when the husband did worse than the wife on those math questions, there was a 50-50 chance he was still the financial decision maker.
