Lady Gaga Offers a Slice of ‘Cake’

Ever since bursting on to the music scene Lady Gaga has been the epicenter of media attention. This time around, she is hogging the limelight for a racy new video for her song ‘Cake’. The video has been shot by Terry Richardson and has been attracting attention for its sexiness. This week, Lady Gaga released the second teaser for the video. The preview is enough for viewers to discern its overtly sexual nature. Aptly named Terry Richard XX Lady Gaga, the new teaser along with the one released last week is bound to create interest among the singer’s fans.

Anderson Cooper Shaken by Explosion

Anderson Cooper is one of the most widely known news anchors on CNN, particularly for his show Anderson Cooper 360p. This week, Cooper makes the list by virtue of a shocking video caught live on TV. In the video, Cooper is seen reporting from Gaza, commenting on the ongoing crisis and war in the Middle East. During the broadcast, a bomb exploded near Anderson and was caught by the cameras. Though the distance was not specified, the sound of the explosion is clearly audible in the video clip.

 Jamie Sadlowski Smashes Simulator on Golf Channel

Jamie Sadlowski is well-known in golfing circles as a long drive expert. So, he would be the obvious candidate for trying out Golf Channel’s simulator live on TV. That’s what Sadlowski was called to do but he ended up smashing the netting on the simulator, leaving it with a hole in the middle. The ball landed on the other side of the screen, showing how great Sadlowski is at hitting a long drive with power.
