Overcome with emotion
The Walk of Britain, a 1,000-mile trek organized by charity Walking With the Wounded, began in Scotland on August 22. When six former military personnel finished this past Sunday, Prince Harry was waiting for them at the end of their long journey.
Marine Kirstie Ellis, who was severely injured in a 2012 helicopter crash in Afghanistan, was scheduled to have her leg amputated this summer but instead did the walk. Once she finished the trek, she presented Harry with the dog tag of Corporal Baune, who was killed in Helmand Province in 2012 after his unit was hit.
“No, I can’t, I can’t accept this,” Harry told her, nearly in tears. But Ennis urged him to take it. “Please, you know what this means to me, I want you to.”

Bieber remixes Drake’s “Hotline Bling,” tells fans to call actual hotline
What’s a weekend without another remix of Drake’s latest hit? Biebs is the latest, even changing up some of the lyrics. But the biggest change is how he made it sound as if it were being played through an actual hotline.
Should I? Love to my bro @champagnepapi. Canadian boys really doing it. #PURPOSE 1 (213) 322-1113 A photo posted by Justin Bieber (@justinbieber) on
Perhaps it’s JB’s way of lightening up a rather rough week but it’s also a good way for fans to tide themselves over until his new album is released on Nov. 13.
Sadly it’s Been a rough week for me, long days no sleep, while having to be “on” as they would say for cameras fans etc. In no way did I mean to come across mean, but chose to end the show as the people in the front row would not listen. Hopefully people will understand where I am coming from. I don’t always handle things the right way but I’m human and I’m working on getting better at responding not reacting. Unfortunately people were affected by this as am I. For the people in the back I am so sorry and for anyone I may have disappointed im sorry. Sorry for wasting the tv people’s time I’ll be sure to make it up to you next time on tour.. With love Justin.
Orlando Bloom wants Kendall Jenner’s number
Almost 40-year-old Orlando Bloom would love to have almost 20-year-old Kendall Jenner’s number. Guess there are/were some rumours about Orlando, 38, and Kendall, 19, dating but he confirmed they weren’t with some jokes at Friday’s Britannia Awards. Um. Ha ha? Bloom was there to receive an award for his charity work with UNICEF, so that’s nice. But good grief, man. Not cool. Orlando also led his acceptance speech with a reference to the scuffle he and Justin Bieber had last year, saying, “I wanted the opportunity to clear this up, I actually did not ‘connect’ with Justin Bieber.” That just sounds like he missed Justin’s face, no? Why even mention it? We had all but forgotten about that embarrassing time and then he had to bring it up again. WHY?
Taylor Swift is being sued for ripping off “Shake It Off” lyrics
Well, haters gonna hate, amirite? Jessie Braham is suing T-Swift because he believes she “borrows heavily” from a song he wrote back in 2013. His song is called “Haters Gone Hate,” which could be quite telling. A court will need to decide if there’s a strong enough similarity between the two songs. TMZ reports that the phrase is used more than 70 times throughout Braham’s songs but his is more of a smooth R&B track without a sick beat. But hasn’t the phrase “haters gonna hate” been around long before either Braham or Swift sang it?
Someone threw a phone at Ariana Grande and she didn’t even flinch
Ariana performed her new single “Focus” for the first time in Burbank, Calif., and during a Q+A session, some douchebag in the audience threw a phone at her. Instead of licking it, then stomping on it until it broke into tiny little pieces, Grande reacted like a pro.
“Did someone throw a phone at me?” she asked. “Did someone just throw a phone on stage? That’s so dangerous. What if your screen cracked?”
If the goal was for Ariana to touch their phone, mission accomplished. If it was to test her patience or, worse, hurt her, you lose, loser.
