Jay Leno terrifyingly demonstrates his 'wing walker' skills

You hear about this? You see this? In a video shared by podcast host Spike Feresten, Jay Leno lifted his head out of the front of a private plane while it was mid-air and going 147 miles per hour, making for a real Twilight Zone, "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet" type image as he slowly rose into frame. "I wanted to surprise the guys," Leno explained. "I was with some friends of mine and they didn't know the front plane opened so I went up to the front and climbed up on the windshield." The former Tonight Show host added he was "just being stupid." Move over, Tom Cruise: the Mission: Impossible franchise may have just found its next star.

Billy Crystal had an unsurprisingly rough time after taking four edibles

You know a late night anecdote is good when it includes the quote, "to make a long story short … I swallowed four edibles." Billy Crystal on The Tonight Show recounted recently undergoing an MRI exam, and since he's "very claustrophobic," he decided to get stoned beforehand. "The guy at the cannabis place said … 'Two will make you feel good,' so I said, 'I really want to feel fabulous,'" Crystal explained. This created a new problem: a half-hour in, he "got really hungry," repeatedly requesting food from his doctor. Once the procedure ended, Crystal rushed to Taco Bell — after first realizing his hospital gown was still on and his "ass [was] hanging out." We'll have what he's having!

Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher must have seen dirt on their kids

Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher are offering everyone proof they do, in fact, bathe their children sometimes. Kutcher shared a video on Instagram of himself jokingly in outrage as Kunis bathes their kids, yelling, "Are you trying to melt them?" Kunis laughs as he complains "that's like the fourth time this week" and "their body oils are going to be destroyed!" The couple launched a celeb-world debate by arguing recently that there's "no point" in washing children unless you can "see the dirt on them," also revealing they don't wash themselves with soap every day. "This bathing thing is out of hand," Kutcher wrote. If by that he means this strange trend of celebrities revealing just how little they shower, we totally agree.

What Kim Kardashian learned from Kanye West

Kim Kardashian doesn't care what you think of her, thanks to her estranged husband Kanye West. During an interview on the "We are supported by..." podcast, Kardashian described the rapper as "someone that absolutely didn't care about likeability factor or what any of perception of him was as long as he was true to himself." Being in a relationship with him taught her to be herself and live in the moment, she said. "Like you have one life and you're living it for you," Kardashian explained. The reality star declared she is no longer a people pleaser: "Whether it's from being so close to someone that really felt that way so genuinely to their core, whether it's age, whether it's becoming a mom, experiences, probably all kind of wrapped up in one."

Dolly Parton wrote a novel and an album to go with it

Coming soon to a bookstore near you, the debut novel from Dolly Parton. The singer teamed up with author James Patterson to pen a thriller about "a young singer-songwriter on the rise and on the run, and determined to do whatever it takes to survive," titled Run, Rose, Run. Parton is a known book-lover — she created Dolly Parton's Imagination Library, a program that distributes free books to children. But in true Dolly fashion, she won't just be releasing a book. She also wrote an album based on the story's characters and plots, which Patterson says enhances the novel and vice versa. "It's a really unique experience that I know readers (and listeners) will love," he said. Both the novel and album will be released on March 7, 2022.
