Unless you're the Miami Zombie, this video of a baby elephant playing soccer (or "football" as some call it) at a London zoo is guaranteed to make you smile.

A young Asian elephant named Donna recently showed off her dexterity with the ball and trunk-eye coordination at England's ZSL Whipsnade Zoo.

Not bad, especially for a two-year-old. She's got a bright future!

Baby elephants are "very similar to children," says Lee Sambrook, Whipsnade's assistant curator of elephants. "They like to play and run around and roughhouse."

"It gives us a great opportunity to just increase our bond with them, really."

No word if Donna has been offered a spot on England's 2012 Olympic squad.

Move over, Kelly Clarkson. Take a seat, Carrie Underwood. Continue to toil away in obscurity, Ruben Studdard.

Phillip Phillips has made history.

The Season 11 champion finished at number-two on the Digital Songs chart this week, as the single "Home" was downloaded 278,000 times, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Its the biggest sales week for any winner's coronation single since SoundScan began tracking downloads in 2003.

Moreover, it's the second-best digital sales week EVER for any American Idol contestant at any time, trailing only Clarkson's "My Life Would Suck Without You," which debuted with 280,000 downloads.

Phillips' achievement is also the fourth most impressive debut of 2012, placing behind Justin Bieber's "Boyfriend" (521,000), Maroon 5's "Payphone" featuring Wiz Khalifa (493,000) and Katy Perry's "Part of Me" (411,000).

The singer will soon be celebrating in a hospital bed, however. Once a high fever comes down, he is scheduled to undergo surgery in order to cure a kidney ailment. We wish him a speedy recovery!

Jersey Shore is all the rage these days. Ditto shark attack movies.

With that in mind, the geniuses at Syfy decided to blend the two phenomena, and the result is this amazing cinematic achievement premiering June 9.

The title Jersey Shore Shark Attack really speaks for itself, but you need to watch the trailer below to see Garden State preparing to be eaten alive:

Syfy's hilariously official synopsis for the movie - which even features a cameo from Jersey Shore's own Vinny Guadagnino - is as follows:

"Many years ago, hundreds of locals and tourists were massacred by giant man-eating sharks in the infamous 1916 Jersey Shore attacks."

"But that's just a legend... or is it?"

Rihanna has been linked to every random athlete, musician and model under the sun, but this latest romance rumor may actually have some juice.

She and Drake, who were linked romantically back in 2009 after her break-up from Chris Brown, were both spotted at Miami hotspot Liv Sunday night.

Not only that, they were getting "hot and heavy."

Rihanna and Drake Perform

"Rihanna was all over Drake this weekend," an onlooker at the club said. "They were holding hands and dancing all close on the dance floor."

The two have notably collaborated on each other's albums, with Rih most recently appearing on the title track of Drake's new album, Take Care.

In 2010, Rihanna, 23, admitted to Hot 97's Angie Martinez that her rumored romance with Drake was real, even if it wasn't particularly serious.

"We weren't really sure what it was," the singer said. "I definitely was attracted to Drake, but I think it is what it is, or like what it was."

"We didn't want to take it any further. It was a really fragile time in my life, so I just didn't want to get too serious with anything or anyone."

As for right now? A source close to the Battleship star denies that the Barbados-born beauty is dating Drake, or anyone else for that matter.

Ladies and gentlemen, we have a So You Think You Can Dance winner!

Okay, maybe not. But Eliana Girard made quite the impression on SYTYCD viewers and judges last night, the latter of whom included Modern Family star Jesse Tyler Ferguson.

A former "pole aerialist" for Cirque du Soleil (dubbed a "pole dancing ballerina" by Nigel Lythgoe in a Tweet), Girard combined classical ballet training with the kinds of moves many men only see during bachelor parties. It was a unique, impressive audition and it earned a comparison to Season 8 champ Melanie Moore.

"I already love you so much," said Ferguson. "You have a quality Melanie had last year. She could just draw you in by just being. It was in her pores. You've got it."

Among other impressive SYTYCD auditions so far: Shafeek Westbrook and Bree Hafen.

Mary-Kate Olsen and Olivier Sarkozy, French president Nicolas Sarkozy's younger brother, are dating. It's a new relationship, but a legitimate one.

"It's true, they're dating, and she's definitely interested in him," an Olsen insider tells Us about her new romance with the 42-year-old Frenchman.

Though Olsen and Sarkozy are seventeen years apart (Olsen is 25), the source says their difference in age suits her just fine, as she's so mature.

MKO and NO

"MK is constantly complaining about boys not being mature enough for her," the source explains. "She got the kids out of her system."

"Now being a businesswoman dominates her time, and she is rarely impressed."

Page Six broke the news of the fashion designer's newest fling on Wednesday morning; a source tells the paper the pair have together for a month.

They're "head over heels" too, apparently.

The once-divorced Sarkozy split from his last girlfriend, Stella Schnabel, in March ... On April 25, Sarkozy and Olsen attended a Knicks game together.

The Teen Mom cast has MTV over a barrel.

They're not one-percenters, but Jenelle Evans, Catelynn Lowell, Kailyn Lowry, Leah Messer & Co. are bringing in big dollars to simply do ... whatever it is they do.

In Jenelle's case, that would be smoke weed, start fights and get engaged to Gary Head, all while not even taking care of her own kid. Nice gig if you can get it.

Teen Mom 2 After Show

On the high side, “Jenelle gets paid $75,000 a season and her mom gets paid $65,000: she calls her an overpaid babysitter,” a source says of the unemployed star.

“She also gets a lot of gift cards to places like The Olive Garden."

WOW. Talk about job perks and fringe benefits. Crazy jealous.

Catelynn, a source says, has made plenty of dough as well.

His presence nearly led to a riot in Norway yesterday, but Justin Bieber eventually took to the stage in Oslo and gave fans a reason to yell and scream aside from his winning smile.

The teenage sensation debuted a pair of new songs during the taping for Justin Bieber: All Around the World, an NBC special that will air on June 21.

As you might expect, both tracks - "All Around the World" and "As Long As You Love Me" - were met with thunderous applause. They follow in the release of another single ("Die in Your Arms") off Bieber's upcoming album, "Believe," and you can watch each below.

Says Doug Vaughan, SVP of Special Programs and Late Night for NBC, of the upcoming Bieber program:

"We'll have unprecedented access to Justin as our cameras film not only his performances, but his every move on this global tour - giving our viewers an all access pass to his life over a 12-day period, something rarely seen on TV today."

Actress Zhang Ziyi is demanding an apology from media outlets that reported she was paid millions to carry on a sexual relationship with Chinese politician Bo Xilai.

Ziyi is now the target of a government investigation based on her links to the scandal-tainted Xilai, according to reports, and she is far from pleased about it.

"We read this outrageous report in the [Hong Kong newspaper] Apple Daily," her publicist said. "It sent chills down our spines and has left us with deep sadness."

Zhang Ziyi Picture

The Hong Kong paper reportedly picked up on a story that originated on Boxun (dot) com, a Chinese-language site operated here in the United States.

Per various media reports, Boxun alleged that a billionaire pal of Bo's introduced him to Zhang and that, since 2007, he has paid her millions of dollars for sex.

It said the Memoirs of a Geisha star has pocketed $100 million from liaisons with multiple high-ranking, deep-pocketed government officials over 10 years.

None of the sites quoted any sources on the record.

Call this tons of fun.

Considering the popularity of Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe," a host of lip dubs have sprung up around the Internet, including the actual video for the song itself, which features Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez and Ashley Tisdale.

It features celebrities, regular folk, bananas and more, all jamming and bopping around to Carly Rae's smash hit. Watch now and we apologize in advance for getting the song stuck in your head...
