    #TBT came early this week with a real gem of a vintage photo. Libor Jany, a reporter for Minneapolis's Star Tribune , dug upan old photo of Prince from his junior high basketball days.

    And it's pretty amazing. Just check out that hair!

    Another Prince-related clip from the Strib archives, looking back at his hooping days at Bryant Junior High.

    Jany also tweetedthis newspaper clip, which cites that Prince — long before he began his explosive career crooning super sexed-up R&B jams — was a stellar basketball player, even though he was on the shorter side. 

    From the Strib archives: Chappelle was right.


  • Have $9,000 to Burn? Here's What to Do if You Rent Leonardo DiCaprio's Palm Springs Home

    Mallory Schlossberg at Yahoo Celebrity 2 hrs ago

    If you've ever wanted to live like a member Leonardo DiCaprio's posse (yes, that one), now's your chance. The star essentially has turned his deluxe Palm Springs estate into the planet's most expensive Airbnb. Now, you can rent outthe Donald Wexler-designed Dinah Shore Estate at 432 Hermosa for a cool $4,500 a night with a two night minimum.

    According to the estate's rental website, the fancy schmancy abode has six bedrooms and seven and a half bathrooms, a deluxe chef's kitchen, a maid service, a heated pool and spa, a one bedroom guest house for a miscellaneous family, a cocktail bar, and — perhaps mostly importantly — WiFi, so you can blog about your experience staying at the resort-like home while you're there.

    The highly confidential transaction made sense given the high-profile buyer. No sole individual would want to be responsible for accidentally giving randos on the Internet access to Leo's abode. But now, assuming you feel like draining your 401k, you  can visit!

    So what should you do when you're there? Here are few a suggestions for your $9,000 mini-vacation:

  • 'Shark Tank' Star Robert Herjavec Is Headed for Divorce

    Robert Kessler at Yahoo Celebrity 2 hrs ago

    As he prepares to make his debut on Dancing With the Stars , Shark Tank' s Robert Herjavec is doing a partnership shuffle of his own. Herjavec told TMZ that he's legally separated from his wife of 25 years, Diane Plese, and the two will divorce soon.

    Herjavec, 51, was born in Yugoslavia (now Croatia) and made his fortune as one of the first people in the world to sell an internet firewall. He's most well known as one of the personalities on ABC's Shark Tank .

    Herjavec met Plese when she was his optometrist. The couple has three children together, two daughters and a son. Fortunately, their divorce seems mostly amicable.

    "Human relationships are so difficult," Herjavec told TMZ. "I wish nothing but love and peace for our family as we move forward from this."

    Herjavec, who is worth a reported $125 million, will perhaps have some new skills to show off when he reenters the dating world. He's set to compete on the upcoming season of Dancing With the Stars (which premieres March 16 on ABC) with Kym Johnson, 38, as his partner.

  • 7 Things Zayn Malik's New Haircut Looks Like

    Robert Kessler at Yahoo Celebrity 4 hrs ago

    Like Madonna or the English language, One Direction's Zayn Malik's hair is ever-changing and constantly evolving. So it's not exactly a surprise that when Zayn stepped off a flight from Japan in London Tuesday, his hair was looking a little different except OH MY GOD WHAT IS THAT THING? IS IT A MONSTER??? What happened to Zayn Malik's gorgeous hair?

    Here are seven things that could have inspired Zayn's new look:

    1. Chris Kirkpatrick

    It's important to pay homage to those who paved your way, but there are other ways to acknowledge the greatness of 'N Sync.

    2. Mugatu from Zoolander

     We'd give anything to see One Direction break dance fighting.

    3. The Lorax's mustache

    We're not sure if the environmentally conscious Dr. Seuss creation's facial hair or brows moved Zayn to snip, but if it also moves him to recycle, that's totally cool.

    4. Kim Jong-un

    We all find inspiration in strange places, even North Korean dictators.

    5. Lady Gaga

    Honor the hair bow. Never forget the hair bow.

    6. Helena Bonham Carter in Alice in Wonderland

    7. Gary Oldman in Bram Stoker's Dracula

    Hardcore, Zayn. Respect.

  • Christie Brinkley Defends Cindy Crawford After 'Leaked' Body Pic

    Taryn Ryder at Yahoo Celebrity 22 hrs ago

    Christie Brinkley stopped by The Dr. Oz Show this week and addressed the "leaked" natural photo of Cindy Crawford that recently blew up Twitter.

    "I have to say something about this picture," Brinkley began. "I just shared a dressing room with Cindy Crawford, at most, it was a year ago. She was perfect ... I know that she takes really good care of herself… We're in the dressing room and I turned around to grab something and Cindy is stark naked stepping into something. She looked perfect. It was kind of annoying."

    Brinkley, 61, continued, "I was very inspired and went home and did my exercises. I honestly don't know if that picture is for real. I know there's people that would like to believe it, but I'm telling you with my own eyes, she was perfect."

    While Crawford didn't comment about the photo, her photographer spoke out yesterday, calling the image " a fraudulent, altered version of my photograph" and threatening legal action to anyone who put up the fake photo.

  • Bobby Brown, Bobbi Kristina Will Not Be Featured on Family Reality Show

    Taryn Ryder at Yahoo Celebrity 23 hrs ago

    TMZ reported Wednesday that, " Bobby's 2 sisters, brother and their kids are shooting the show about their lives, and part of it will chronicle Bobbi Kristina fighting for her life."

    But in a statement to The Insider With Yahoo , Brown's lawyer balsted the "irresponsible" report: "Yet again, TMZ has chosen to engage in false news reporting. There is no Brown family reality show that is in production which chronicles Bobby Brown, Bobbi Kristina or the medical emergency she presently faces at Emory Hospital. These reports are irresponsible and Warner Brothers as the owner of TMZ, should be ashamed to publish such nonsense, particularly one day before Bobbi Kristina's birthday. Bobbi Kristina and Bobby Brown are dealing with enough right now. The fact that TMZ/Warner Brothers has decided to inject negativity into their lives at this critical time is plain insanity."

    Bobbi Kristina remains on life support after she was found unresponsive in a bathtub on Jan. 31.

    Bobbi Kristina, the only daughter of Whitney Houston, turns 22 tomorrow.

  • Leonard Nimoy's Other Legacy: His Photography and the Controversy It Caused

    Elizabeth Durand Streisand at Yahoo Celebrity 1 day ago

    Though he was best known as the hyper-rational Spock, Leonard Nimoy, who died of end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease last week at 83, enjoyed a thriving second act outside of Hollywood. Specifically, the Star Trek icon became a notable photographer, producing several collections of provocative images that highlighted subjects who are often marginalized by society due to characteristics such as weight, sexuality, and religion. Not surprisingly, Nimoy's exploration of that last subject sparked controversy — controversy that did not go unremarked when he died.

    Titled Shekhina , it consisted of (semi) erotic photos of Jewish women in various states of undress, partially clad in male religious garb. The pictures proved to be polarizing even within the Jewish community that Nimoy loved so much. While some took issue with the women being naked or depicted in men's clothing (or both), others praised Nimoy's creative vision.

  • Another Cosby Accuser Comes Forward, Recounts the Star's Odd Demands

    Mallory Schlossberg at Yahoo Celebrity 1 day ago

    Yet another woman has stepped forward to accuse Bill Cosby of sexual assault. While that in itself is, sadly, unremarkable at this point, many of the details of her story are exceptionally bizarre.

    The woman, who identifies herself only as "Patricia" to avoid what she called "the media circus," claimed to Buzzfeed that the comedian not only raped her, but also asked her to do peculiar things, like tie her hair up like Queen Noor of Jordan and walk around with oatmeal on her face. He also allegedly gave her a gym membership and demanded that she lose weight.

    "Patricia," who is now 58 and lives in California, told the site that this began when Cosby promised to mentor her after she thanked him for speaking at an event at the University of Massachusetts. Unfortunately, she recounts, that's not how things turned out. She says that Cosby invited her to dinner with him and his wife in 1978 (so she was 20 or 21 at the time), but when she showed up, he was the only person there.

    She also has a message to other victims.
