Mariah Carey Says She Swims in Evening Gowns and Heels

Think you know everything about Mariah Carey? Think again. The singer just revealed 25 surprising facts about herself to Us Weekly, including the bizarre tidbit that she swims in evening gowns and heels. True to her diva reputation, she admits she hates overhead lighting. “In my opinion, elevator lighting is toxic!” she says.

Stephen Colbert Interviews Eminem on Michigan Cable Access Show

While the set for his new CBS late-night program is being built, Stephen Colbert is apparently itching to get behind a chat show desk -- which, he explained, was why he recently hosted a Michigan public access show called Only in Monroe. The footage was posted on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert YouTube channel Wednesday night. While not in his Colbert Report persona, Colbert was certainly in character, deadpanning through the 41-plus minute program as any local host would, on location in the local access channel's studio, which Colbert said was the perfect channel "to binge watch 2014 city…

Taylor Swift on Crop Top Obsession: "That's All You'll See Me Wear for Two Years"

No, you’re not imagining it. Taylor Swift has been wearing cop tops and flared mini-skirts a lot lately.

If you look back at her fashion evolution, she’s clearly gone through some phases. “You might recall from 2012 to 2014, you didn’t see me in any outfit that didn’t look like I was straight out of the ’50s,”…
