Within the past year, 13-year-old Greyson Chance has gone from being an unknown talent to landing a record deal, heading on tour and having his debut album, "Hold on 'Til the Night," land among the top 10 sellers on iTunes upon its release on August 2.
But while his lifestyle has changed, Chance - whose rendition of Lady Gaga's "Paparazzi" not only made him a viral sensation but also led to a record deal with Ellen DeGeneres' eleveneleven - is focused on staying the same kid he's always been.

Before the stage went dark on her long-running talk show Wednesday, Oprah Winfrey still had a few more lessons to share.
Instead of inviting one last super-special guest to appear, giving away a car or doing one more incredible makeover, Winfrey opted to take the finale of "The Oprah Winfrey Show" back to basics: It was just Oprah, giving what she called “a love letter” to her audience.
"This last hour is about me saying thank you; it is my love letter to you," she said. "I want to leave you all with the lessons that anchor my life. Every day that I stood here I knew that this was exactly where I was supposed to be.

Last night's episode of “Real Housewives of Atlanta" must've been filmed in the middle of a Georgia summer, because everyone clearly needed to chill out. Tensions were running high as the ghosts of past gossip came back up during face-to-face confrontation, and the ladies all seemed pretty stressed.
Kandi was working on her promo tour; NeNe was attempting to land celebrity interviews; Cynthia was trying to plan a wedding underneath the dinosaurs; and Phaedra was trying to be “mom, wife, lawyer and businesswoman.”
In fact, the only woman who didn’t seem a little frazzled and should’ve been was Kim.
For a movie that's billed as an action-filled drama, "The Tourist" has had people in stitches this week.
First there was the noticeable laughter from the press when it was announced that "The Tourist" was nominated by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for a best comedy or musical Golden Globe. Then one of the "Tourist's" own stars, Angelina Jolie, couldn't hold back laughter when she heard she'd been nominated for her performance in the film.
The mom of six snagged a Globes nomination in the best actress in a comedy or musical category for her role, and according to the Hollywood Reporter, she said she laughed "because it's the first time that I've been in the comedic category, so it's new for me."
