Colbie Caillat, best known for her hit single "Bubbly," was performing that very song in Pittsburgh this week when she asked the crowd to join in.

They obliged. A crowd of insects took a strong interest in her, as well.

Around the halfway point (2:00 below), bugs swarmed Caillat to the point where they interrupted the song, forcing the beautiful singer to run for cover.

Gamely, she returned and had the crowd help her finish the tune:

"My goodness. I am traumatized from the bazillion bugs that were literally raining on me from the sky while singing on stage," she wrote afterward.

Caillat, who's touring with Gavin DeGraw, may be a girly girl, but she's a good sport. One who will advocate for indoor venues from now on.

The Republic of Dagestan is a federal subject (a republic) of Russia, located in the North Caucasus region. Dagestan is rich in oil, natural gas, coal, and many other resources.

Like SICK DANCE MOVES!

Check out this video of a construction worker breaking it down on the job to Michael Jackson's classic "Billie Jean." Guy can moonwalk like a champion!

Hey, it's a recession. Gotta pass the time somehow.

While she's long since moved on, Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries are still technically married, and their divorce proceedings are likely to be contentious.

The former couple is scheduled to have their depositions taken in their ongoing divorce proceedings at the end of June, with plenty of unresolved matters.

How can this be, considering that they did have a prenup and have now been apart much longer than they were even married? Depends who you ask.

  • Kim Kardashian on the Phone
  • Kris Humphries is Hot

Kim's camp insists Kris is dragging this out to keep his name in the news (unlikely) and hoping to secure the best possible settlement (slightly less unlikely).

Humphries' lawyer plans on asking Kim about her decision to keep her engagement ring, the $325,000 Ferrari wedding gift they got, and much more.

Kardashian filed for divorce after only 72 days of marriage, which Kris says was based on fraud and deceit ... never a bad assumption with Kim really.

Whatever his motivation, the two are approaching this quite differently.

Bar Refaeli. Shaun White.

Not two people we would've predicted would get together, but who are we to judge, right? The snowboarding champ was spotted with Maxim’s newly crowned “hottest woman in the world” at NYC lounge Sway “dancing, hugging and kissing” Monday.

Score one for the Flying Tomato.

The New York Post writes that "the Israeli ex of Leonardo DiCaprio and the half-pipe hero promptly hit the dance floor, going for the gold in the canoodle-a-thon."

Mark that down as one of the best celebrity gossip lines of the year.

“They were all over each other,” a spy said. “They were dancing, hugging, kissing ... you name it.” Then “around 3 a.m.,” White gallantly walked her out.

No word if Sean White has seen Bar Refaeli nude in person yet, but millions of Maxim readers have. Okay, probably more like a few thousand at this point.

Memo to Lil Wayne: You need "tickets" to get into an "event."

If the tickets are sold out, then you usually can't go. Sometimes there are exceptions, but usually not for a game that has already been sold out for weeks, and generally not for seats better than 99.9 percent of the people who bought them already.

Lil Wayne learned this the hard way last night.

Lil Wayne and Birdman

Weezy felt like going to Thursday's NBA playoff tilt between the Oklahoma City Thunder and the visiting San Antonio Spurs. The Thunder, with no seats to spare (least of all any courtside seats, which he insisted on sitting in), politely declined.

Thunder spokesman Dan Mahoney says Lil Wayne's reps did contact the team requesting tickets, but insisted he sit on the front row, and no seats were available.

Oklahoma City sold out every game during the regular season and playoffs this year. Mahoney says: "We'd love to have him, but like anyone else, he needs a ticket."

Makes sense to us. But apparently not LW, who Tweeted this:

Weezy Tweeting

That's right, denied by the team, as if they were making some kind of statement. What a douche. Also, no way he was rooting for the Spurs last night. None.

After a long investigation, bigamy charges will not be filed against Kody Brown and his four spouses, who gained prominence last year on TLC's show Sister Wives.

The Utah County Attorney's Office announced Thursday that it will not pursue a criminal case against the Browns, based on the office's interpretation of state law.

Utah County Attorney Jeffrey Buhman said that his office has adopted a formal policy not to prosecute the practice of bigamy unless it occurs in conjunction with another crime or if parties to the marriage or relationship is under 18.

"The purpose of this policy is to prevent the future prosecution in Utah County of bigamist marriages entered into for religious reasons," Buhman wrote.

"The criminal case against the Browns is now closed, and no charges will be filed against them for bigamy," unless new evidence is discovered, he said.

Kody Brown and his four wives, Meri, Janelle, Christine and Robyn, issued a statement Thursday, saying they are "delighted by the news that the prosecutors have formally declared that the investigation of our family is at an end."

"We have spent years under investigation and ultimately had to move from the state of Utah to protect our family and particularly our children," they said.

Marilyn Monroe would have been 86 today. The actress and icon died of a drug overdose under still-debated-to-this-day circumstances a half century ago.

Her name alone conjures up memories of beauty and tragedy. Marilyn. So talented, so troubled and so profoundly sexual to all those who remember her.

Future generations will know her no differently.

The enigmatic star, underrated as an actress, stole every scene she was in, from her bit part in All About Eve to her Oscar-worthy role in Some Like It Hot.

In her personal life, Monroe made headlines whether she was singing "Happy Birthday" to the president, getting married or showing up late to the set.

It's no wonder Marilyn fascinates, inspires (see Lindsay Lohan Playboy photos, or the below pic Tweeted by Lady Gaga today) and mesmerizes to this day.

It's also no wonder that the late Monroe became the focal point of the film My Week With Marilyn or NBC's new Broadway-themed series Smash.

Marilyn's career, and life, was pure theater.

  • Michelle Williams as Marilyn Monroe
  • Kate as Marilyn
  • Lindsay or Marilyn?

Seriously, legal system?

While the jury did its job in delivering yesterday's John Edwards verdict based on the (lack of) evidence, it's hard not to be frustrated when a shady character walks.

"Not guilty" doesn't mean he's innocent - a fact that Edwards basically admitted outside the courtroom yesterday, though he maintains no laws were broken).

Nevertheless, that's hardly a consolation for some observers. Even animals can't hide their disgust for the disgraced politician. Case in point? This parrot:

Brandon Jenner - brother of Brody Jenner, son of Bruce Jenner, half-brother of Kylie and Kendall Jenner, and stepbrother of Kim, Khloe and Khloe Kardashian - got married yesterday in Hawaii to singer Leah Felder in an intimate ceremony.

Bruce, Brody, Kendall and Kylie Jenner all attended. Take a look:

Brandon Jenner, Leah Felder Wedding

Brandon and Brody are Bruce's sons with ex-wife Linda Thompson. Kris Jenner had Kim, Khloe, Kourtney and Rob with her ex, Robert Kardashian, Sr.

Noticeably absent from Brandon's wedding were Kim, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian, who were spotted going to lunch together in L.A. on Thursday.

All three Tweeted and/or blogged their congrats, however.

Kim wrote on her blog, "Huge congrats to my step brother Brandon and his gorgeous new wife Leah!” Khloe, using a pic sent to her by her sisters, wrote:

“I just wanted to send a HUGE congratulations and so much love to my brother Brandon and his new wife Leah. Wishing you all the happiness in the world!”

Kourtney wrote: “I want to wish a huge congratulations to my step brother Brandon and his stunning fiance Leah who are marrying today. Sending my love to you both.”

Congratulations to Brandon, Leah and the whole family!

Kim Zolciak is never seen without her long, luxurious wigs, but she finally unveiled her real hair on her reality show last night, and she looked good!

Something uncharacteristically real on a reality show? Crazy.

Zolciak has teased the big reveal all season on Don't Be Tardy for the Wedding, which documents her wedding planning and nuptials to Kroy Biermann.

Thursday night, the big moment arrived at last. Take a look:

After Kim's assistant Niki and hair stylist Derek J said she should maybe have her natural hair for the wedding, she accepted the challenge. Wild!

Niki, Derek and viewers alike were surprised to see that The Real Housewives of Atlanta star's real hair is real cute, just shorter than her wigs.

This wasn't her first "reveal" of the new season, if you know what we mean. We mean you should probably go check out Kim Zolciak topless.
