Tim Tebow Inspires On "The Tonight Show"
Tim Tebow visited Jimmy Fallon on "The Tonight Show" to promote his recent book "Shaken." In typical Tebow fashion, the interview brought tears and inspiration to many who didn't know they needed it. He has been the center of scrutiny for many sports enthusiasts, myself included, who question his ability to succeed in MLB baseball. The problem with our criticism is that Tebow doesn't keep score the way the rest of us do.
Where many of us see anything less than ultimate success as failure, Tebow just wants to have fun and pursue his dreams. He joked about his meager salary as a minor league baseball player and told stories about sleeping on the floor during a twelve-hour bus ride. His sports lifestyle is not glamorous, but he loves it.
Tebow also addressed the danger of living by what other people define as success. You can't please everyone in the comment section. You can't trust the comment section either. Tebow lives according to the advice and encouragement of the people who he knows and loves and encouraged Fallon's audience to do the same.
The interview ended with an impromptu prom dance. Tebow, apparently, never went to prom. He was always too busy with sports. So, Tebow created Night to Shine, a worldwide prom for people with special needs. One attendee invited Tim to be her prom date. He couldn't make the event, so he invited her to The Tonight Show, bought her a corsage, and asked her for a dance.
How can you not root for this guy?
As Ariana Grande plots her career and her personal journey following the horrific attack that killed 22 people outside of her Manchester, England concert, one dad in Georgia has a few things to say to her. (Things that I'm so glad someone finally said out loud.)
I will say-- if you would've asked me in 2002, who would end up a big-time mogul and consistently creating between Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Jessica Simpson and Mandy Moore, I'm not sure I would've said Jessica Simpson.

A couple of weeks ago, Carrie Underwood called up the Nashville Predators before a home playoff game and asked to sing the National Anthem. Since then, Luke Bryan, Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town, Vince Gill, Keith Urban, Kelly Clarkson and Trisha Yearwood have been asked to sing. This series of events caused the Preds' "regular" National Anthem singer, Dennis K. Morgan, to reach out to the media and air his disdain for these decisions.
If you missed ABC's remake of the classic "Dirty Dancing," you only missed the opportunity to see what happens when you try to reinvent an eternal classic by adding a Pussycat Doll into the mix. Of course, the Internet had a lot to say about one of the saddest primetime made-for-TV movies ever.
I've always said I'm glad social media didn't exist when I was in middle school. I would've had more terrible YouTube videos out there than one could ever imagine.
6 Pretty Hilarious Things Jessica Simpson Said on "CBS Sunday Morning" (Before That Interview with Ellen)
If you don't watch "CBS Sunday Morning," you're missing out on one of the most enlightening and endearing shows on TV. Like a lot of things I do on Sunday, I religiously watch this show. Last week, Jessica Simpson was interviewed and I didn't think much of it, until I saw that super weird interview on "The Ellen Show."
Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has played some incredible roles over the years. From his years as a cocky tough guy in the squared circle, to a guy that is racing to Witch Mountain (Which mountain? THAT mountain!).
