Biden campaign ‘flooding the zone’ with celebrity backers
The four-time Grammy winner isn't the only Biden playlist mainstay helping his campaign against President Donald Trump. Still, Biden has gone beyond celebrities in search of campaign surrogates. Stars generate candidate buzz, help with fundraising and can build campaign event crowds — even for those online. His reelection campaign has been holding its own online events with top supporters nearly every night for months and says its online events average 2.6 million views per broadcast, though its headliners are often the president’s children. The Trump campaign has also seized on Biden's preferred venue for participating in online events, a basement studio in his Delaware home — accusing the former vice president of hiding from voters.

Pete Davidson: 'The King of Staten Island' is 100% me

The King of Staten Island may change that. Ill never forget that.For those who know him more from the tabloids, The King of Staten Island will certainly reveal a different side to Davidson.
What is Ehlers-Danlos syndrome?
ATLANTA - Responding to a paparazzi photo that captured her walking with her cane, Lena Dunham explained she has Ehlers-Danlos syndrome -- a group of disorders affecting the joints and skin. "An Ehler-Danlos syndrome flare means that I need support from more than just my friends... so thank you, sweet cane!" Some claim the first description of the syndrome was by the Ancient Greek doctor Hippocrates in 400 BC. "Each type of EDS is a distinct disorder that 'runs true' in a family," the Ehlers-Danlos National Foundation says.
