For you people who believe the old saying, "Those who can't do, teach," enter Amal Clooney. George's better half is going to be teaching at Columbia Law School this spring.
“It is an honor to be invited as a visiting professor at Columbia Law School alongside such a distinguished faculty and talented student pool," the British barrister said in a statement. "I look forward to getting to know the next generation of human rights advocates studying here.”
Amal, who specializes in international law and human rights, will lecture as a senior fellow with the Law School’s Human Rights Institute.
Hey… she certainly has the experience! Clooney has served as a senior adviser to Kofi Annan when he was the U.N.’s envoy on Syria, and she represented WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange in extradition proceedings (just for starters).
It's no surprise that Clooney, who studied law at both NYU's Law School and at Oxford, would take the gig. She and George just relocated to New York while the actor films Money Monster and Amal hardly strikes us as the stay-at-home wife type.

Iggy Azalea has had rough time with social media. After several issues with Instagram and Twitter, she has decided officially to take time away from social media as she — or, more accurately, her team — posted the following announcement:
But all those adoring Azaleans should have seen this coming for awhile by now. Just a few weeks ago, the "Fancy" singer went on a tirade onTwitter after the paparazzi snapped a photo of her wearing a bikini while she was on vacation.
The photo led to an onslaught of unnecessary and insulting comments about her body.
Obviously, the rap-pop star was irate.
Just got back from a great vacation, came online and saw apparently it's shocking and unheard of to be a woman and have cellulite. Lol.
Ultimately, she decided it was time for a break.

No "Blurred Lines" here.
Nearly a year after Paula Patton and Robin Thicke announced their separation, the 39-year-old actress says she is thankful for where her life is at now. But it hasn't been easy.
"I mean, the honest truth is, it has been challenging. But it's been a year of growth… learning about all new things," she said on Good Morning America on Friday. "I feel like everything happens for a reason… And then you have to move on and grow from there."
Patton officially filed for divorce from her high school sweetheart in October 2014 and asked for joint custody of their 4-year-old son, Julian.

"The Upton family (Cate Blanchett and Andrew Upton) have adopted a baby gi rl. " the Blue Jasmine actress's representative said in a statement to Yahoo. Blanchett's representative later added that the baby's name is Edith Vivian Patricia Upton.
The new baby girl will be welcomed by her three older brothers — Dashiell, 13, Roman, 10, and Ignatius, 6.
Blanchett has spoken about her male-heavy household before. " Everyone says, ‘Oh, you must have [been trying] to have a girl,’ " she said to W Magazine in 2010, but she didn't seem to indicate she was hoping to add a daughter to their brood. " If the next one was a boy, then that’s just our lot!
" It’s true you do get a bit demented [with three boys] ," she cracked to t he magazine, but "the chaos of it is great."
It will now be a whole new brand of wonderful chaos for Blanchett with a baby girl.

John Mayer has made more than a few mistakes when it comes to his public image. He called his junk "a white supremacist" in Playboy . He's also got a habit of kissing and telling, most notably describing Jessica Simpson as "sexual napalm" in that same interview. And I'm still not sure we as a society have appropriately parsed the creepiness of describing one's lover's body as a "Wonderland."
Anyway, John insists that those days are all behind him now, describing himself as a "recovered ego addict" in a candid sit-down with Today.
"I'm a recovered ego addict and the only way that I can be sure that I don't relapse is to admit that I constantly have this ego addiction every day," Mayer told Ronan Farrow, who conducted the interview. "So I do the Grammys and I go home because if I stayed, I'd get high [on the approval] again."
The 37-year-old singer also insists that he's not a womanizer, he's just crafty... which somehow sounds worse.

Bobbi Kristina's boyfriend Nick Gordon has entered rehab after being interviewed by the TV doctor, according to multiple reports. In what has been described as an "emotionally charged intervention," Dr. Phil sat down with with Gordon and his mother, Michelle, in an episode set to air next week. Gordon has apparently been battling alcohol and drug addiction.
According to a press release for the upcoming show, Nick "expresses the severe pain, mental anguish and panic attacks he says he has been suffering since Brown was found face down and unresponsive in a bathtub in her home in January and over the tragic loss of Whitney Houston three years ago."
"As we sit here right now, my son's life hangs in the balance," Michelle says in a preview. "When Whitney was found, he administered CPR to her and called me as he was standing in front of her saying, 'Mom, why couldn't I do it? I couldn’t get air into her lungs.' He won't let go of the guilt."

Attention! Attention! This is not a drill. GIRD YOUR LOINS. Saved by the Bell icon Mark Paul-Gosselaar has bestowed a gift unto the Internet.
The artist formerly known as Zack Morris posted a photo on Twitter of his Adonis-like body in the flesh — save for a censor (womp womp). If you've ever wondered what the 41-year-old actor looks like when he's naked and upside down... now is your chance. His animator pal, Ben Ceccarelli, is equally smokin'.
Nice team name, by the way.
While it's easy to believe that these two stripped down upside down for reasons none other than your eyes, that is not the case. The two are joining forces for a CrossFit competition, so it's for a good cause — fitness! So, via the transitive property, this photo is good for your health.
"Teaming up with @Piketoon for the @CACrossFit #pairpower competition," wrote the actor. "@CrossFit. Some would say we've already won."

On Thursday, Harrison Ford crashed his World War II-era Ryan Aeronautical ST3KR at the Penmar Golf Course near the Santa Monica Municipal Airport. Though his publicist admitted that the star was "banged-up" and still hospitalized receiving medical treatment, she was made sure to note that he is "expected to make a full recovery." But this is hardly the first time the icon (who recently suffered a broken leg due to an accident with the Millennium Falcon on the set of Star Wars: The Force Awakens ) ran into trouble in the skies. In fact, it marks the third major crash for the 72-year-old flying enthusiast.
Ford's first major accidentoccurred in 1999 in Santa Clarita, California. The star was practicing auto-rotations during a routine training flight in a Bell 206 helicopter when he crash-landed. Ford and his flying instructor both walked away from the accident unharmed, but the chopper was badly damaged.

The early days of American Idol brought us three perfect things: Ryan Seacrest's frosted tips, the vocal stylings of one Ms. Kelly Clarkson, and cinematic masterpiece From Justin to Kelly . As it turns out, there wasn't a whole lot of acting necessary because the two were already K-I-S-S-I-N-G IRL.
During an appearance on Watch What Happens Live Thursday, Andy Cohen asked Clarkson about the halcyon days of 2003 and her romantic history with Guarini, who lost to Clarkson on the very first season of American Idol , back when you had to call in to vote like a caveman. Sitting in Cohen's Broom Closet of Giggles and Secrets, Clarkson spilled all the details.
And, really, who could deny those curls?
But it looks like maybe she's warming up to the classic tale of spring break romance, reenacting a scene from the film on WWHL with Andy Cohen.
Just saw a couple performances from the VMA's last night. 2 words.... #pitchystrippers

Aaron Carter seem to be trying a new approach in his decades-long battle to win back the love of his life, Hilary Duff. The guy is now playing hard to get.
Former teen idol Carter, 27, dated Duff when they were young teenagers, and decided to publicly air his lasting feelings for her on social media and in interviews last year after she split with husband Mike Comrie. He advised people not to "be that stupid douche that loses the love of your life forever."
Surprisingly, Duff did not knock down Carter's door to rekindle their childhood romance after his declarations of love. In fact, when she was asked about the messages as she appeared on Watch What Happens Live , she called them "uncomfortable." Duff was asked about Carter's devotion yet again in a new interview with Cosmopolitan released earlier this week. And it was clear she had not changed her mind.
Some shit I just don't get. Stop. Talking. About. It. ....I did.
