Hollywood's most ridiculous charity bandwagon might be the most successful.
This week in news: celebrities are filming themselves getting buckets of ice poured over their heads. This is what millions of years of evolution has led to. Ok, so the latest celebrity trend, the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge is pretty simple. Whenever someone gets challenged, they’re supposed to get a helpful friend to pour ice water over then and donate to the ALS Association, which works to support sufferers of Amyotropic Lateral Schlerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease.
Not even Oprah is above the ridiculous Ice Bucket Challenge.
So it might seem a bit... out there, but thanks to the Ice Bucket Challenge, ALSA has received $15.6 million in donations so far.

It’s not just you and your friends getting nominated to take the ALS awareness ice bucket challenge; celebs from lists A-Z are getting involved, and we’ve got a bunch of pictures of them getting soaked for a good cause.
Justin Timberlake, Justin Bieber, Oprah Winfrey, Ryan Seacrest, Iggy Azalea, Cara Delevingne have all taken part, as well as Mark Zuckerberg, who facilitated the sharing of these phenomenon with a little creation he decided to call Facebook. And who did he decide to nominate? Bill Gates, who decided to use a piece of machinery to aid his ice bucket challenge.
Bieber’s actually done it twice now, and made sure he removed his top for the second attempt. “Alright, second ice bucket challenge,” he said. “Today I nominate my Beliebers all over the world. I know you guy's got an ice bucket somewhere.”

Mark Zuckerberg and the Facebook posse will be releasing the Oculus Rift VR headset this summer, but what is it and how will it change technology forever?
Facebook have been splashing out a lot of money lately! Although, we have to say, the $2 billion that they’ve spent on the Oculus Rift VR headset seems fairly affordable in the light of the $19 billion that went on messaging service WhatsApp. Bargain! But what is the Oculus Rift and what difference will it make to technology? Is it just another one of those 'futuristic technology things' that will never take off, or are Mark Zuckerberg and co. really on to something this time?

An 18 year old man sneaked backstage and left a note in Miley Cyrus' dressing room, which other stars have had to deal with obsessive fans?
Miley Cyrus has a fairly polite (but gramatically challenged) stalker. Instead of hiding in her dressing room wearing a ghostface mask and brandishing duct tape, he simply entered her dressing room and left a note. The note wasn’t even that peculiar, in the grand scheme of celebrity stalkers.
Tyler snuck backstage at Miley's Bangerz tour
Tucker Salvesen wrote to Miley: “I snuck back here I need to meet you. You have helped me so much your music has given me all the answers I was looking for when my heart got broke...we went through the same thing @ the same time...Miley I love you!!! Please let me meet you”. OK, not totally normal behaviour, but at least he said ‘please’. He’s also not been entirely stealthy about his impending plan to invade the Wrecking Ball singer’s dressing room, tweeting to her keyboardist “I’m probably gonna sneak backstage to see miley tomorrow...save me a trip to jail 1000 miles from home and help me out???”.
