Backstreet Boys surprise Down syndrome group with a meet-and-greet before Louisville concert

(CNN)When a group of special-needs adults in Louisville, Kentucky, made a video of themselves lip-syncing to a Backstreet Boys song, they expected friends and family would love it. But the response they got was larger than life. And that’s when things really got exciting. The Backstreet Boys, who are currently on their “DNA World Tour,” called Down Syndrome of Louisville to ask if the lip-sync stars would like to attend their show on Friday at KFC Yum! Center in Louisville. They even offered to meet them ahead of the concert. “There were screams, one of them actually fell on the floor,” Julie Torzewski, the group’s executive director, told CNN. “They’re uninhibited in their emotions, this is what makes them so …

Hubble Reveals Latest Breathtaking Portrait Of Saturn

A newly unveiled image of Saturn captured by the Hubble Space Telescope shows the gaseous planet in all its pastel-colored glory. Snapped on June 20, 2019, the high-resolution image was captured using the telescope’s Wide Field Camera Three as Saturn was making its closest approach to Earth this year, just 1.36 billion kilometers (845 million miles) from Earth. Saturn’s famous ring system is visible as the planet tilts towards Earth, awarding a view of the rings’ bright, icy structure and fainter inner rings made up of orbiting particles of ice and dust indicative of gas planets. Though mesmerizing, astronomers say these images are more than just “beauty shots.” “They reveal a planet with a turbulent, dynamic atmosphere. This year’s Hubble …

WTF Is Going On With Nick & Aaron Carter? | Betches

If you’re reading this, you’re probably old enough to remember a golden era of Nick and Aaron Carter. Nick was obviously a member of the Backstreet Boys, who released their first album in 1996. Aaron Carter came on the scene a year later, releasing his first album when he was just nine years old. Aaron Carter was one of the biggest heartthrobs of the late ’90s/early 2000s, and the Backstreet Boys are still one of the most iconic boy bands of all time. Those were good times, but things have been pretty dramatic in the Carter family lately. Just yesterday, news broke that Nick and his sister are seeking a restraining order against Aaron, and the details are a major …

If Aliens Got In Contact, This Is How The British Public Would Like Earth To Respond

International efforts to look for aliens have so far been met with radio silence. Despite intriguing signals (that occasionally turn out to be from microwave ovens in observatory tea rooms), so far no likely candidates for intelligent life contacting Earth have been identified, nor any signs of advanced aliens minding their own business. Yes, that includes Boyajian’s star. Aliens, it’s fair to say, have not been chatty. If aliens were to be discovered, however, it’s not clear what we would like to happen next. A new survey in the UK carried out by researchers from the University of Oxford sought to find out what the British public would like to happen in the event E.T. did get in touch. In what came close …

David Chase on why he wrote The Sopranos: ‘I needed help. I needed therapy’

As his mobster-in-therapy masterpiece is named the best TV of the century, its creator says he was just thrashing out his own issues with his domineering, suffocating mother The first image David Chase had in mind for the show that became The Rockford Files and HBO. Surprisingly, Chase thinks it would have a tough time being commissioned today, in spite of the fact that, after six seasons and 86 episodes, it is credited with changing audience tastes. In this landscape? Sure, he says. Tony Soprano is too fat. Hes too crude. Who cares about New Jersey? Ive seen these guys before. There is a long pause. Its not dystopian enough. Everything seems to be dystopian now, and this isnt. Plus, …

7 takeaways from the third Democratic presidential debate

Houston, Texas (CNN)Pete Buttigieg called it “unwatchable.” Amy Klobuchar warned that “a house divided cannot stand.” Julin Castro said what was unfolding on stage was “called an election.” “This is why presidential debates are becoming unwatchable. Because this reminds everybody of what they cannot stand about Washington. Scoring points against each other, poking at each other, and telling each other that, ‘My plan, your plan,’” he said. That’s when Castro, the former Housing and Urban Development secretary and the chief instigator Thursday night, interjected. “Yeah, that’s called the Democratic Primary Election, Pete. That’s called an election. That’s an election. You know?” he said. “This is what we’re here for. It’s an election.” Here are seven takeaways from the third Democratic …

The Don’t Call Me Angel Video Is A Chaotic Mess

2019 is obviously supposed to be the year I die. On Friday, my gay brain almost exploded when Lana Del Rey, Ariana Grande, and Miley Cyrus dropped their new song “Don’t Call Me Angel” and video, from the soundtrack of the upcoming Charlie’s Angels reboot. Let me repeat: Lana. Ariana. Miley. All in the same place. Wearing Victoria’s Secret Angel costumes. It’s really too much to handle, but after a few minutes of deep breathing exercises, I’ve formed some thoughts. “Don’t Call Me Angel” is a chaotic mess. But don’t come for me in the comments, because that’s exactly what it needed to be. I mean, you have three icons with completely different vibes in a heavily themed music video that’s glorified …

Republican Trump challengers warn of totalitarian drift in party

Mark Sanford, Joe Walsh and Bill Weld write for Washington Post after four states cancel nominating contests to give Trump clear run The Republican party has taken a wrong turn under Donald Trump, according to three GOP challengers to the president, and is heading down the road to totalitarianism as states cancel primaries in an attempt to give Trump an unimpeded path to the nomination in 2020. In cancelled their nominating contests. A president always defines his or her party, the three men wrote, and today the Republican party has taken a wrong turn, led by a serial self-promoter who has abandoned the bedrock principles of the GOP. In the Trump era, personal responsibility, fiscal sanity and rule of law …

Photoshop Fail Of The Week: Another Day, Another Jenner | Betches

I usually try to avoid using Kardashian/Jenner photo editing fails because honestly, this entire series could be about them alone. But alas, they keep giving me material, so here we are. And this one is so, so bad. You would think being super young, beautiful, a billionaire, having chefs and personal trainers, and having your entire body and face augmented by the best surgeons in the world would mean that you can just post your banging body without editing, right? YOU WOULD THINK. It’s like LuAnn says, guys. Money can’t buy you class, and it definitely cannot buy you self-esteem. Here is what Kylie posted earlier this week: View this post on Instagram

Someone Is Attacking Jehovah’s Witnesses Halls Outside The Seattle Area

There have been seven separate attacks on the worship buildings, traditionally called Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives in Seattle. No one has been hurt in these incidents, but officials are concerned.  A video from The Olympian shows the aftermath of an arson attack at the Lacey Kingdom Hall in December.  The FBI announced Friday that it was adding $25,000 to the reward for information leading to the arrest of the person or persons responsible.
