"Yoga is a preparation for death. Yogis get to a point where they can literally slow their heartbeats down. And then as they get older, they go into the woods, and they sit in their loincloth or whatever it is, and they choose to stop their heart... It's not about twisting yourself into a pretzel." Madonna attempts to explain her love for yoga.
Kid Rock and his Alabama neighbour Jamey Johnson recently fell out when the country rocker turned an invite to hunt on Rock's land into a camp-out for himself and a gang of friends. The two musicians became friends after meeting at mutual pal Hank Williams, Jr.'s home near their two estates, and Kid Rock was more than happy to let Johnson use his land for a father-and-daughter day out - but he had to ask his guests to leave when they turned the excursion into a camping party.
He tells Rolling Stone magazine, "He brought in a bunch of f**kin' hillbillies. They were living by the creek - tents set up, riding around trying to kill s**t. I got really p**sed... I had to tell them to get the f**k off my property."
Johnson accepts he overstayed his welcome, telling the publication, "I moved into his woods out there for a while. It was what started off to be maybe five or six people, but it turned into about 20 or 30. I agreed with Bobby (Rock). It was just time."
British actor James Corden is convinced he will only last six months as the host of America's The Late Late Show. The Into The Woods star is taking over from Craig Ferguson as presenter of the TV favourite next month (Mar15) and he fears his tenure on the show could be short-lived.
He tells Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper, "I'm well aware there is every chance it's going to start, no one is going to like it, and it isn't going to work. That's completely possible, maybe even probable, and that it's cancelled within six months.
"This isn't false humility - these shows take time. They're never perfect straight off the bat because they rely on familiarity. It's going to be a bumpy ride, and we're going to be tested in so many ways. It's a brand-new show hosted by an unknown quantity, to an audience that I don't know. If the show fails, it doesn't mean I'm suddenly bad or awful. It's an adventure and if it doesn't work, I'll go home and carry on."
Since Ferguson left the show in December (14), an array of star guests have taken over hosting duties, including singer John Mayer, moviemaker Judd Apatow and actor Will Arnett.
Sam Smith, Pharrell Williams, Taylor Swift and Beyonce are among the stars who have landed top nominations for the 2015 Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards.

Take a tip from teenagers this Valentine’s Day and do it up big. Everything’s a grand gesture when you’re young and these teen movies prove that young love trumps all. So get out there and do something nice for your significant other – and we don’t just mean getting tickets to the Fifty Shades of Grey movie.
1. Say Anything
The now-iconic boombox gesture. Except these days it would probably involve holding up an iPhone or something.
2. The Fault In Our Stars
Augustus used his wish to give Hazel her dream trip to Amsterdam. Sigh…
3. 10 Things I Hate About You
The public singing and dancing. How could you resist?
Edward would watch Bella as she slept (which definitely sounds creepy now that we think about it) and he took her flying through the woods. Unconventional romance, to be sure, but she swooned nonetheless.
5. Cruel Intentions
When a bad boy reveals his sensitive side to you, you know it’s love.
6. A Walk to Remember
He married her and fulfilled her dying wish, doesn’t get more grand than that.
7. Moonrise Kingdom
What’s more romantic than running away together?
8. Romeo + Juliet
The classic tale of star-crossed lovers. They basically disown their families to be together. They also die in the end but let’s just pretend it all worked out.
9. Save the Last Dance
Being a good dancer: hot. Showing up to your girl's dance audition because you know how important it is to her: even hotter.
10. The Perks of Being a Wallflower
We kind of wish people still exchanged mixtapes like Charlie and Sam.
11. The Notebook
Noah climbs a Ferris wheel just to ask Allie out. Yeah, he's kind of insane...but in the most romantic way.
Juno fills Paulie Bleeker's mailbox with his favorite orange Tic Tacs. Even sassy Juno can be sweet.
What do YOU think are some of the most romantic teen movie gestures? Tell us on social media!
This TGIT wasn't as jam packed with surprises as last week, but that doesn't mean it wasn't emotional. Grey's Anatomy sucked us in the most with the difficult decision the Avery's had to face with their child. Scandal was underwhelming and creepy, because Huck was being Huck again. HTGAWM took the cake this week with an interesting twist and new carefully plotted suspect that only Annalise could pull off.
This week's episode was a tearjerker... and if you're surprised by that then you've clearly never seen the show. Jackson and April and their son, Samuel Norbert, were the main storyline for the episode. Every second tore out your heart as you watched the couple go through this tragedy.
The show started out with the pair learning that their son would likely die soon after his birth and, as if that wasn't enough, his bones were currently breaking inside the uterus. They ultimately decide to induce April and get to meet and hold their son for as long as he lives, but April struggles with going through with it. April goes from being positive, trusting, and hopeful to complete desperation. Dr. Herman's tough exterior and inability to understand how to kindly break it to them that they need to sign their unborn child's death certificate surely didn't help the process.
At one point, April even gets upset with God, and Jackson is the one to enter into the chapel and beg God to "show up for April." No one wants to see that beautiful, blue-eyed man cry in a chapel less than we do! April's faith is restored after she decides to go back to work and finds out that the girl in scrubs walking around the hospital is only there because her fiance died the night before. April comforts her and tells her she will survive (of course, this is also a reminder to herself).
While April and Jackson are going through this, the entire hospital staff struggles with what to do for them in this situation. They eventually decide on lighting a candle in the chapel and one by one they go in until all the candles are lit. It ends up being a much more beautiful tribute then the original suggestion of sending flowers...
Obviously, one drama per episode is below quota for Grey's, so there was also a woman who somehow got shot in the neck accidentally by her husband and also had a baby that she didn't know was possible. She was on the brink of death, but survived and got to hold her little girl after surgery. Oh, and a blind guy was made to see, and Meredith got someone to babysit, so she can go get laid by her husband.
Olivia's plan falls through once again, just as it seems she might be succeeding. Just after Ian offers her a choice of the highest bidders and starts to trust her intelligence, one of the psycho guards from the place where they kept her comes through and shoots him.
Of course, the president knew he had to get in the bidding war, so they secretly partnered with terrorists and put in their bids. The gladiators did as well, but had to go through quite a difficult path to get an alias that would be allowed to enter the bidding. They bartered with Olivia's mom and gave her a flat screen in exchange for a terrorist to partner with. We understand the beauty of cable, but definitely don't think it was worth having Huck kill a bunch of people in order to secure the terrorist's trust.
Basically, Huck is clearly and very quickly spiralling downhill, as he tends to do. He mauled the bodies of the people he killed and then even began morbidly talking about how "Olivia is dead" and they will soon be sending the president her fingers. He got a look in his eye during that speech that could give you nightmares for weeks.
Mellie's continued honesty with Fitz has been so refreshing and made her much more tolerable. She tells Fitz that she wants to be president one day and even that she wants Olivia to come home because "we both sleep better when she is between us."
How to Get Away With Murder
This week's HTGAWM kept us on our toes! With Sam's body now being found with wood and carpet debris as well as the murder weapon being identified as metal or steel, all the clues seem to point right back to that law firm. The students were on edge the whole time and Annalise not showing an ounce of grief only further helped them look guilty.
Sam's sister testifies against Annalise in court, saying she once threw a paper weight at him which earns her a search warrant from the police. Despite swiping the exact area he fell and bled all over, the police didn't find anything. What was weird about that was that Annalise seemed to be silently suggesting that they check that area by standing and staring down from the staircase. Not sure why she did that, but it ended up in her favor so she must have had a reason.
Bonnie gets suspicious and finally figures out that the students did it and warns Annalise that they'll "ruin" her if she keeps protecting them. Now it's just poor, clueless Asher that still doesn't know anything.
Eventually, the cops find a wedding ring, surprisingly it was Sam's, in the woods and have identified a fingerprint on it. Of course this was planted by loyal Frank and now the murder suspect is identified as Nate Lahey, Annalise's boyfriend. Clearly, the plausible cause is there, and he just never learns his lesson.
Annalise also helps the mob get out of drug case and Wes learns Rebecca actually called the cops on the former tenant of his apartment, Rudy. We've never trusted Rebecca, and it might just be for good reason...
Check back next week to see what happens with Jackson and Avery recovering from their loss, Olivia finally returning, and Sam's sister who still wants to prove Annalise was behind it all!
Golf legend Tiger Woods is taking a break from the sport as he struggles to regain the form that made him one of the game's greatest ever players. Woods, who has won 14 major tournaments during his illustrious career, has suffered a serious slump in recent years, and he bowed out of the Phoenix Open tournament in the U.S. earlier this month (Feb15) after shooting one of his worst ever rounds.
Now he has announced he is taking an indefinite hiatus from the sport to work on his game.
In a statement, Woods says, "Right now, I need a lot of work on my game, and to still spend time with the people that are important to me. My play, and scores, are not acceptable for tournament golf... I am committed to getting back to the pinnacle of my game... I do, however, expect to be playing again very soon."

Other items on display include costumes from The Grand Budapest Hotel, Mr. Turner, and Inherent Vice, which will all compete for the Costume Design Oscar with Into The Woods and Maleficent.
The show launched on Tuesday (10Feb15) and runs until 25 April (15).
Golf ace Tiger Woods is facing a lawsuit from a former police officer who claims he was injured in a fall while working as a security guard at the star's luxury mansion in Florida. John Davis has filed a lawsuit over allegations he slipped on wet marble flooring at Woods' home on Jupiter Island in 2010 and injured a knee. Davis claims he had surgery and is due to go under the knife for a second operation later this year (15).
Davis' lawyer, Michael Feiler, tells Florida news website GossipExtra.com, "My client provided security on the property and due to the negligence of others, fell and sustained a serious injury."
