Charles Darwin (1809-1882) was generations ahead of his time, courting controversy, bequeathing to us the theory of evolution and shifting the zeitgeist of modern science.

His "survival of the fittest" and "law of the jungle" are phrases so commonplace today that even young children would have some idea of their meaning.

However, according to The Guardian, there are holes in Darwinian biology. A prime example: The “tree of life” he drew in his famous notebooks.

Darwin Tree of Life

New research suggests this concept could actually be wrong.

The tree of life portrayed how species are interlinked, and what the whole exercise meant to show was that natural selection is the engine of evolution.

The latest experiments by geneticists show otherwise.

The fans have spoken - and Carly Rae Jepsen has listen.

On last night's American Idol performance show (which pitted Candice Glover against Kree Harrison in their final stage showdown), Jepsen debuted the track "Take a Picture."

What made it so unusual?

As part of the Coca Cola Perfect Harmony contest, fans actually voted on everything from the single's lyrics to what Carly's backup dancers would be wearing. Did they make the right choices?

Watch here and decide for yourself:

She told authorities she wanted to kill herself too, but "just couldn't."

Suzanna, Kids

Simpson herself was found hurt in a wrecked pickup truck outside her family's home in Pickens County, S.C., around 6 a.m. Tuesday, deputies said.

Miss USA Nana Meriwether has a crush on Prince Harry.

The 27-year-old Maryland beauty queen admits she has a major thing for Kate Middleton's brother-in-law and Prince William's younger sibling.

  • Miss USA Nana Meriwether
  • Ginge

"He is doing a wonderful job of representing your country here," Meriwether told Britain's Telegraph at a fundraiser honoring Prince Harry in NYC.

"I am really hoping to meet him," said Nana Meriwether, who took over as Miss USA when Olivia Culpo claimed the Miss Universe title in December.

"He is single, right?" she added. "Well so am I. Wouldn't it be wonderful if we married? He is very tall and good-looking, I hear. Perfect. We are meant to be."

Cressida Bonas may have something to say about that.

Chris Brown has a message for his neighbors and local officials who want him to take down the graffiti artwork in front of his house. And that message is:

F--k y'all!

Chris Brown House Graffiti

The singer's Hollywood Hills neighbors complained to the city about the mural he sprayed on the front of his home, for which he does not have a permit.

Now Brown's graffiti work could result in fines from the city, which he doesn't seem too concerned with. He said this week that he's ready for a fight.

Big surprise.

You gotta hand it to Rihanna's ex in terms of his freelance art skills, though. He just wakes up one day and decides to paint that out front for fun?

Talk about a man of many talents. Just sayin'.

Pssst, Kanye West: You may be dating the wrong person.

Following a paparazzi run-in that caused him to walk into a pole last week, the rapper WENT OFF on members of that industry during a show in NYC last night.

Kimye Sighting

"I'm a terrible, terrible celebrity," West said at the Adult Swim Upfront party. "I'm only up in the studio to make real sh-t… I don't want nobody coming up to me with cameras and sh-t… Selling pictures to a f--king magazine… Asking me dumb f--king questions ... Because I'm not a motherf--king celebrity."

Then maybe you shouldn't have knocked up Kim Kardashian? Who makes a living as a professional celebrity?

A young woman and her service dog melted hearts across the web when they showed up to her college graduation in matching caps and gowns.

The cute graduate, who received her diploma in a wheelchair accompanied by her pooch, became the talk of the University of Illinois - and Reddit:

  • Girl Graduates With Service Dog
  • Service Dog at Graduation

The photo was taken at Saturday's convocation ceremony of the College of Applied Health Sciences, and is basically all that is right with the world.

"This is my service dog, Hero, after we graduated with our Master's degrees at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign," she wrote in a caption.

Yes, after WE graduated. That's not just sweet, she swears he earned it!

She has a new hair color and now a new tattoo.

Demi Lovato Tweeted some fresh ink to followers yesterday, showing off an over-the-shoulder tattoo that readers "now I'm a warrior."

Peep it here:

Demi Lovato Tattoo Picture

Lovato, it's safe to assume, is referencing the many struggles she overcame (namely rehab for an eating disorder and other mental issues) to arrive where she is now.

And where is she now? On board as an X Factor judge and about to come out with a new album. That's some serious warrior stuff right there!

Well done, Demi.

The man accused of keeping three women in captivity for a decade will plead not guilty, his lawyer said, while raising concerns that he can receive a fair trial.

Ariel Castro Mug Shot

Craig Weintraub, who's representing Ariel Castro, 52, on rape and kidnapping charges, said the "fantastic notoriety" of the case is a disadvantage.

Castro's defense is mulling whether to ask that the trial be moved out of Cleveland, where he allegedly held the three victims in his home.

"Then that begs the question: 'Well, where can he get a fair trial under the circumstances?' This is a case with sensationalistic, international coverage."

Castro, 52, was arrested May 6 shortly after Amanda Berry kicked out part of a locked door of his house and yelled to neighbor Charles Ramsey for help.
