Osama bin Laden, the chief architect of the 9/11 attacks, was killed in a firefight with American forces late Sunday. According to sources, Bin Laden was tracked down in Abbottabad, Pakistan and shot in the head during a very short firefight, after which his body was then buried in the North Arabian Sea. "Justice has been done," President Barack Obama said in a White House speech. The President also confirmed that the extremely quick funeral of the remains had been handled in accordance with Islamic law. What a great day for America. [Huffington Post]

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon are Now Parents

The babies have arrived. After a seemingly long and much discussed pregnancy Mariah Carey has given birth to twins. The songstress gave birth on Saturday at an undisclosed hospital in Los Angeles. First to arrive was a 5 lbs. 3 oz little girl, followed by a boy weighing 5 lbs. 6 oz. The children arrived on the couple’s wedding anniversary, which is usually celebrated with Mariah and Nick renewing their wedding vows. The couple instead renewed their vows yesterday in a ceremony conducted by Rev. Al Sharpton. The baby’s names have yet to be made public, however Cannon has promised in the past they “won't be crazy names like Carburetor or something.” [People]

He found out I had a traffic warrant wanted to make a name for himself took me in and now I'm home laying my bed what's the big deal?!" Keep on fightin’ the power, Flav. [TMZ]

Nudists Recruit Young People

With declining, graying membership, the two largest nudist umbrella groups are on the hunt for some fresh blood. Nudist organizations, like the Naturist Society, are reaching out to younger people with “a youth-recruitment effort that includes reverse-strip-poker nights, volleyball tournaments, naked 5K road races, and music festivals like Nudepalooza and Nudestock.” Nicky Hoffman, head of the Naturist Society, said, “The whole lifestyle will just disappear unless we attract a younger crowd. The problem is, most of these resorts aren't geared to young people. They've become like retirement homes; they've sort of calcified.” It is hoped that an infusion of youth will help keep the $440 million industry alive. [Wall Street Journal]
