    Looks like someone answered our prayers.  


    According to Rolling Stone, Pope Francis will release a "prog-rock-infused album" called "Wake Up!" in November of this year. The 11-song album is currently available for pre-order on iTunes. Premiering on Nov. 27, 2015, it will feature Pope Francis' "words and prayers."



    The album is a collaboration between the Pope and Believe Digital, an independent artist distribution company in Europe. According to Don Giulio Neroni, who worked on the album, this is not the first time a Pope has released music. 


    "I had the honor to work with John Paul II, Benedict XVI and now Pope Francis," said Neroni in Rolling Stone. "As in the past, for this album too, I tried to be strongly faithful to the pastoral and personality of Pope Francis: the Pope of dialogue, open doors, hospitality."


    Head over to Soundcloud to hear the Pope's first single, called "Wake Up! Go! Go Forward!" now. Or, buy the single here on iTunes for $1.29.

    Are you more of an Albert Einstein or an Angelina Jolie?


    Luckily for anyone who has ever wanted to identify their public-figure spirit animal, the good people at Visualy broke down some of the most well-known celebrities' personality types, each one classified on the 16 Meyers-Briggs categories. The results are based on quotes and behaviors each person has exhibited over their careers.


    You can tell a lot about a person by their character profile -- and celebrities and public figures are no exception (Stars! They're just like us!). While the science of personality types is slightly dubious, there is some research that suggests that certain behaviors may be neurologically wired. In other words, Kanye West can't help but be an ISFJ anymore than you can.


    Check out the famous personality types in the infographic below. You may be more like your favorite icon than you thought.

    Jennifer Lopez is getting a new job in Manhattan -- and yes, she can ride the 6 train there.


    The singer, actress and producer is becoming the first-ever Global Advocate for Girls and Women at the United Nations Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to building support for and advancing the causes of the U.N.


    "Lopez’s role will focus on mobilizing action to address major challenges for girls and women around the world, in support of the U.N. secretary-general’s Every Woman, Every Child initiative," according to a U.N. Foundation press release


    Lopez has been active in similar issues for some time; she and her sister Lynda co-founded a nonprofit called the Lopez Family Foundation, which focuses on improving  women and children's access to healthcare, in 2009. 


    In a statement, Lopez said that her involvement in these issues stems from the birth of her twins Max and Emme in 2008.


    "While some progress has been made, there is still a lot more work that needs to be done for gender equality and universal access to medical care," she said in the statement. "I am happy to be joining the U.N. Foundation and eager to lend my voice and ensure that all girls and women are safe, healthy, educated and empowered."


    Lopez is delivering her first speech at the U.N. Foundation today.

    Will Smith, the rapper and Academy Award-nominated actor, turns 47 on Friday September 25!


    Although many of us were introduced to him as Cousin Will on "The Fresh Prince of Bel Air," Smith actually started his career in 1987 as an MC performing alongside DJ Jazzy Jeff.


    In the mid to late 80's, Smith helped hip-hop merge clean rap lyrics with pop music tracks. Smith's been recording music since -- though it's been ten years since his last album -- and many of his songs are our favorite jams to this day.


    Here are 10 of his best singles that prove Smith is undoubtably the Fresh King of hip-pop.

    Actress Leah Remini announced this week that she will soon release a memoir about her 30 years as a member of the Church of Scientology. The book will be "bold, brash, and bravely confessional," according to publisher Ballantine Books. Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology is set to arrive on Nov. 3.


    Remini, who is best known her starring role on the long-running sitcom "King of Queens," became a Scientologist as a child, but publicly left the Church in 2013 because she didn't want her 9-year-old daughter, Sofia, to become indoctrinated in its precepts.


    She revealed her plan to write a tell-all about her time in the Church soon after her departure, but details were scarce until this week. Now, thanks to Remini's Twitter account, we even have a cover:





    A number of books released in recent years -- most notably Lawrence Wright's Going Clear, which was adapted into an Emmy-winning HBO documentary -- have thrown open the doors of the famously secretive Church of Scientology. One of the central figures in "Going Clear" was "Million Dollar Baby" screenwriter Paul Haggis, and the book describes the lengths to which the Church will go to keep its most famous members -- especially Tom Cruise -- in the fold. But Troublemaker will be the first book to reveal the perspective of one of Scientology's many celebrity members in their own words. 


    There's no telling what she'll say, though there's certainly a good chance that much of it will paint the Church in a negative light. Remini has been a rather outspoken critic of Scientology over the past two years. At one point, she even filed a missing persons report for Shelly Miscavige, wife of David Miscavige, the head of the Church of Scientology, which the LAPD called "unfounded."


    The Church, for its part, sent The Huffington Post a statement slamming Remini's book and behavior over the past couple years as a "pathetic quest to get publicity and seem relevant."


    "Ms. Remini needs to move on with life and stop obsessively blaming others for her problems, be it her former religion or those she has worked with professionally," Scientology spokesperson Karin Pouw said. 


     The Church has a history of responding aggressively to criticism of its practices. Just this week, two movie theaters near the Scientology headquarters in Clearwater, Florida, canceled plans to show the film"Going Clear," allegedly as a result of pressure mounted against them by the Church.

    "Scandal" star Kerry Washington welcomed a daughter, Isabelle Amarachi Asomugh, in May of 2014, but she hasn't slowed down for a second. 


    In an interview with In Touch magazine, Washington explained that having a boss like Shonda Rhimes makes it easier to balance work and new motherhood. 


    "One of the greatest things about having her as a boss is that she is a woman who really understands," Washington said. "She’s a mother and has four shows, along with three kids." 


    But part of being a mom means making sure to say "no" to certain people. “You can’t be all things to all people all the time," said Washington.

    Despite previously shooting down divorce rumors, actress Kaley Cuoco and tennis player Ryan Sweeting have confirmed they're ending their marriage after just 21 months.


    The couple have "mutually decided to end their marriage," a representative confirmed to Us Weekly, adding, "They ask for privacy at this time. No further statement will be issued regarding this matter."


    Cuoco and Sweeting were married on New Year's Eve 2013 in Southern California after only a few months of dating. Cuoco announced the marriage via Instagram in a picture showing her and Sweeting posing together with the caption, "Yep :) #thesweetings."


    In the midst of the breakup news, Cuoco reportedly removed some photos of Sweeting from her Instagram account and posted a sad-looking photo with the caption "#mood":

    National treasure, and star of "National Treasure," Nic Cage is finally opening up his book of secrets.


    Cage's new movie, "Pay the Ghost," is now in theaters. He was drawn to the film, he told The Huffington Post, because it mixes real life and supernatural horror. That's pretty cool, but when we heard Cage was available for interviews on the film, we just had one question: Did he ever actually steal the Declaration of Independence?


    OK, actually we had a lot of questions. Pages of questions. But with only 10 minutes for the call, we had to whittle them down to the essentials, and getting an answer about a potential heist of our country's most important document was No. 1.


    It seems facetious. Of course, he didn't steal the Declaration of Independence, right? "National Treasure" was just a movie ... or was it?


    There was that alleged photo of Cage from the 1800s that appeared to reveal he was a vampire. And he's played a character who thought he was a vampire before. Are Cage's movies actually a reflection of his real life? The world needs to know.




    The interview started off smoothly. I said, "Hi, I'm Bill." Cage said, "Good to talk to you, Bill." (Wow! He knows my name!) Things were going great.


    We talked about the film, which Cage called "very liberating" because it allowed him to play the character naturalistically, à la "Cinéma vérité."


    "Sounds awesome," I said.


    (Note to self: look up the definition of cinéma vérité.)


    I asked, "If you have to pay a ghost, do they only accept children, or is there some sort of payment plan you can work out?" 


    Cage said, "In the movie, it's children." 


    (OK, good to know.)


    Then things got a little awkward.


    I said, "Since we're talking about the supernatural, did you know there's a whole online community who calls you their 'one true god.' What are your thoughts on that?"


    (This was a mistake.)

    Cage was awesome. He said, "I don’t know what to think about that. The Internet is it’s own sort of life force that has seemed to developed this fascination, whether it’s ironic or not, that I can’t really explain. So I sort of let people do what they want."


    (Great answer! Then one of the publicists jumped in ...) 


    "STICK TO MORE QUESTIONS ABOUT THE FILM!" he said. 


    OK, maybe it wasn't that aggressive, and it was cool they set everything up, but the damage was done.


    My heart fell faster than the stairs do in the first "National Treasure."


    (You can't blame publicists. That's their job. But I literally have pages of questions to ask, including, "If you could take someone's face off for the day, who would it be?" "Is there anything worse than a face full of bees?" And, of course, "Did you steal the Declaration of Independence?")


    "Sure, no problem," I said. "So ... are you like ... scared of ghosts?"


    I'm not sure if that's exactly what came out of my mouth, but it wasn't much better. 


    Cage was gracious. He did apparently have normal fears like any other parent. "That's what I found compelling about 'Pay the Ghost.' I think every parent can relate to that fear of losing one's child in public whether it be an abduction or accident or something and then to have that escalate into a supernatural horror ... I thought that was pretty unusual and not like anything I’ve done before."


    (Very cool. But the chance to ask the question I really wanted to know was winding down. Ah, what would Cage's "National Treasure" character do at a time like this?) 




    (Eh, that doesn't help.)


    "Last question," said one of the publicists.


     It was now or never. I had to go for it. 


    "Did you ever steal the Declaration of Independence? Or do you think you could if you had to?" I asked.


    It is done.


    Saying it was a relief, but every millisecond of silence had me more tense than when I waited to see if Cage and his friends would survive the end of "National Treasure: Book of Secrets."


    Then ... he speaks. Oh, speak again, bright angel!


    "No and No," said Cage.


    Success! All the research and planning finally paid off. The question has been answered. "No," Nic Cage has not actually stolen the Declaration of Independence, and "no" he doesn't think he could. He didn't have to answer. He could've just declined.


    But the one true god did answer, and it was good.




    "Pay the Ghost" is now in theaters.

    Sigourney Weaver will appear in Paul Feig's upcoming "Ghostbusters" reboot, and it's vital you keep your head from exploding.


    Feig broke the news on his Twitter account, where, besides creating a high-risk environment for fans' brains bursting out with excitement, he subtweeted everyone leaking information about actors from the original "Ghostbusters" signing on to his film.





    In the original film, Weaver played Dana, the Ghostbusters customer who, you know, has that whole thing with Zuul. Everyone keep your hands on your necks!  


    It was recently reported that Ernie Hudson would join the project, because Feig must honestly not care if our skulls pop right off our bodies and roll down the street.

    All of Westeros rejoiced Friday when a sighting of Jon Snow on the "Game of Thrones" set hit the web. It now appears actor Kit Harington is for sure making a comeback in Season 6, after "dying" in the Season 5 finale. Though whether he's alive or undead remains to be seen.


    There may be one huge thing you missed in all your excitement, though:


    Jon Snow isn't wearing black.





    Going to The Wall is called "taking the black" for a reason. They wear black. Though blurry, the photo seems to show Kit Harington wearing brown, possibly indicating that his days as a member of the Night's Watch could be over.


    This would be a huge revelation, especially since the Night's Watch oath is for life. (Of course, coming back from the dead may nullify that.) But Snow's new clothes may reveal an even bigger spoiler.


    He might not be wearing just any brown outfit...




    Image: BuzzFeed


    Yup. Jon Snow might be the new King in the North.


    Dressing Snow in an outfit that looks like Robb Stark's is most likely intentional, as the show has knowingly dressed another character in Robb's clothes before. Harington's garb is also reminiscent Ned Stark's old outfits, as Reddit user Whooptell points out. Ned, though not King in the North like Robb, was a former Warden of the North. Either way, it appears the now "alive" Snow is taking on an important role.


    Even before the picture hit the Internet, there were already rumors Harington returned to film big battle scenes involving Stark bannermen the Umbers, the Boltons, wildlings and others. And we already know that the truth about Snow's parentage, and his possible royal heritage, will most likely be revealed in Season 6.


    So does all this mean Snow takes on the role of King in the North? Is he actually wearing Robb Stark's old outfit? Will he still guard the realms of men from the White Walkers?


    There's only one thing to say:

    You're not going to want to close your eyes for this.


    Continuing the star-studded appearances on her 1989 tour, Taylor Swift invited Steven Tyler onstage Friday in Nashville. Tyler's band Aerosmith actually formed around 19 years before Swift was even born, but that doesn't stop her from totally killing it in this duet. And it was all captured on video so you don't have to miss a thing.




    Swift also sent out an Instagram from the performance with the caption, "Magical things going down on this tour."



    Yeah. She's not lying. So far Swift has welcomed everyone from the ladies in her squad to Echosmith to the U.S. women's soccer team to her stage. With more tour dates on the way, it's safe to say she'll keep on showing us incredible things.

    Remember Curtis Holland from "Wife Swap"? Uh, sorry, "King Curtis" from "Wife Swap"?


    He was the kid who ate a bunch of chicken nuggets and kept reiterating how bacon was good for him. (Preach, dude.) Well, back in the day, clips of him spouting his wisdom went viral all over the Internet. Now, after six years, he's back, and he still has all kinds of swag.


    Here's Curtis today:



    After actress Lucy Hale made a Instagram post wondering what happened to him, the now 14-year-old posted an update video to YouTube that Tech Insider uncovered -- and it's amazing.


    Highlights include Curtis showing off his chickens, talking about how his pilot never got picked up, making a pitch for people to help him get a muscle car and, of course, eating bacon.


    Check it out. Like bacon, it's good for you.
