  • Are Katy Perry And John Mayer Back Together Again For The 234th Time?

    Forgive us if you think you’ve heard this one before, but Katy Perry and John Mayer are - you’ve guessed it - back ON. The pair were spotted on holiday in Yellowstone National Park, which isn’t your usual celeb holiday hotspot, and witnesses told The Sun that the on-off-on-off-we’velosttrack couple appeared “head-over-heels” in love. The couple - that’s Katy and John - have been together since 2008, but have broken up more times than we’ve had hot dinners (well, nearly, this is the fourth time they’ve split/reunited and we’ve had at least six hot dinners in that time).

  • Mad for Madonna even at P3K-P57K tickets

    Proof: Madonna’s Manila concert at SM Mall of Asia (MOA) Arena on Feb. 24, 2016, is more than six months away, but already, there is much ado about getting tickets now, “before they run out,” a midlevel corporate executive told the Inquirer. It took one week before the official announcement on July 29 that the Manila concert, part of Madonna’s “Rebel Heart” world tour, will have a second night on Feb. 25, 2016, although the Inquirer had reported it in advance (Madonna in Manila confirmed: 2 nights at MOA Arena, lifestyle.inquirer.net, July 1). The decision to hold back the announcement of the second night was a calculated move, sources say, to test if the Philippine market was ready for advance ticket sales, especially for a top concert act like Madonna.

  • The hype is building for a fight between Ronda Rousey and the only opponent who has a chance against her

    UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey's last three opponents have lasted a combined 64 seconds. Rousey, the most dominant athlete alive, has been so clinical that fans and experts alike can't think of a single fighter that could even give her trouble ... except for one, Cris "Cyborg" Justino. The possibility of a mega fight between the two fighters took a giant step forward Sunday when, following Rousey's knockout win over Bethe Correia, Justino told Fox Sports' Elias Cepeda she would try her best to meet Rousey's demands of a 135-pound weight limit, if that's what it takes to secure the fight, although she said she would prefer a compromise of 140 pounds.

  • Saudi King cuts vacation short amid uproar from Cannes locals

    Saudi Arabian King Salman left the south of France for Morocco on Sunday, cutting short a planned three-week stay after a petition from some 150,000 residents over the closure of a public beach outside his villa. A Saudi source said King Salman had arrived in Morocco, saying this was part of his holiday program and had nothing to do with the media coverage that his visit had attracted. Philippe Castanet, a local French government official, added that about half of the king's 1,000-person entourage had left along with him.

  • Some Americans refuse to give up on Confederate flag

    Many Americans assumed the Confederate flag was retired for good after governors in South Carolina and Alabama removed it from their statehouses this summer and presidential candidates from both parties declared it too divisive for official display. "You can't take it out on the flag — the flag had nothing to do with it," said Ralph Chronister, who felt inspired to dig out his old Confederate flag, which is decorated with a bald eagle, and hang it from his weather-beaten front porch on a heavily traveled street in Hanover, Pennsylvania. An uncomfortable tolerance of the Confederate flag in mainstream society was upended in June when photos circulated on the Internet revealing that a young white racist charged with killing nine black churchgoers in Charleston, South Carolina, had posed with the Confederate symbol.

  • Iran's Ahmadinejad seeks political comeback

    Iran's former President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has launched a political campaign ahead of February's parliamentary elections in what could prove a challenge to the moderates behind a landmark nuclear agreement reached last month. Few expect a rerun of Ahmadinejad's surprise victory in the 2005 elections, which kicked off an eight-year presidency marked by confrontation with the West, incendiary rhetoric toward Israel and refusal to compromise on the disputed nuclear program. Many former allies have turned on Ahmadinejad, and two of his former vice presidents have been jailed for corruption.

  • Dubai's real-estate market is looking vulnerable again

  • Stephen Curry's shoe deal with Under Armour is a total steal

    Stephen Curry's deal with Under Armour became even more of a bargain when it broke that Adidas is offering James Harden $200 million in an attempt to steal him from Nike. While these kinds of offers can be the norm for NBA superstars — according to Forbes, Kevin Durant signed a 10-year extension with Nike worth as much as $300 million with royalties and Adidas gave Derrick Rose a 13-year, $185 million deal — Curry's deal with Under Armour looks paltry in comparison.

  • Missing plane draws eyes to land of molten lava and killer sharks

    By Joe Brock SAINT-DENIS, Reunion (Reuters) - As experts on the Indian Ocean island Reunion studied plane debris for clues in the search for missing flight MH370, scientist Nicolas Villeneuve was making his own discovery: the island's volcano was about to erupt. Reunion, a part of France that lies in the Indian Ocean around 370 miles east of Madagascar, gained newfound notoriety last week when a beach cleaner stumbled across a barnacled piece of an airplane wing known as a flaperon. The wreckage was flown on Friday to mainland France where experts hope forensic analysis will uncover if it was part of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, which vanished without trace in March 2014 along with 239 passengers and crew.
