Mars Rat Spotted in Rover Photos

We all know rats can get in to pretty much any nook and crevice.

But who knew they could get into outer space? And settle down on Mars?!?

A photo taken in September by NASA’s Curiosity rover appears to depict some kind of furry small creature.

“Note its lighter color upper and lower eyelids, its nose and cheek areas, its ear, its front leg and stomach,” writes ScottCWaring, a contributor to UFO Sightings Daily, who first picked up on the abnormality.

Others believe this is merely a rock and, similar to the Hitler tea kettle on a recent J.C. Penny billboard, Waring is just seeing what he wants to see.

So take a close look yourselves, THGers, and decide: Rat or no rat?

Beyonce Drinks Wine, Probably Isn’t Pregnant

Either Beyonce is not pregnant… or she’s going out of her way to show herself as an irresponsible mother.

With rumors continuing to churn that Bey and Jay-Z are expecting another baby, the singer took to her official website today and didn’t write a word.

But she did post a very sweet photo of herself drinking wine while hanging with her man, an indication that she’s NOT knocked up – and/or is not a believer in that whole medical science thing.

We choose to believe the former.

In other Beyonce news from the week, this is what happens when you slap her butt. Consider yourselves warned, future concert attendees.

Keyshawn Johnson Goes OFF on Justin Bieber, Labels Singer a “Coward”

Keyshawn Johnson once wrote an autobiography titled “Just Give Me the Damn Ball.”

After one year of playing in the NFL.

In other words: this is a man unafraid to speak his mind, and he did so again today when asked about Justin Bieber.

 

When approached by TMZ for a comment on confronting Bieber a few days ago after the artist sped around the pair’s neighborhood in Los Angeles, Johnson made his feelings on the star VERY clear.”You got a 19-year-old kid … feeling entitled … speeding up and down the highway … that’s why all the neighbors is mad,” Keyshawn says in an intense interview.

He also explains why Bieber is a “coward” and a “trickster,” saying he came upon Justin in the celebrity’s driveway after clearly witnessing him behind the wheel, driving like a maniac – only Bieber switched spots with Lil Twist and tried to play all innocent.

Says the ex-wide receiver: “Look man, I know the difference between a black kid driving a car and white kid driving a car … I got biracial kids.”

Debby Ryan on Her Hit Show and Upcoming Debut Album

Even if she wasn’t famous, Debby Ryan would be a cool girl. You know the type: Smart (see her charming Tumblr), funny (see her hilariously witty tweets), and she can rock ball gowns and band tees with the same aplomb. The actress-slash-singer is totally BFF-worthy, and she just so happens to be real-life besties with half of youngHollywood.

But Debby is famous, and deservedly so—the Disney star has acted on loads of hit series (remember The Suite Life?), the latest beingJessie, which kicks off its third season this summer.

We stole a few minutes with the 20-year-old to chat about movies, music, and making it big on the small-screen.

What can we expect from season three of Jessie?
Disney has never done a show with someone who starts out so grown-up̬Jessie’s 18! She’s still trying to figure out what kind of career she wants, so she’s trying different things and attempting to move forward and really advance as an actor. More than anything, it’s about watching her grow.

You’re going through a lot of the same things are your character. Do you influence the storylines at all?
I think that’s where we get half the inspiration for the show, just saying, “Okay, Debby, what’s going on with you right now?” I’m doing what Jessie’s doing. She’s moving forward, and life is changing and shifting around her. All the stories about her family and her relationships—all of those personal things—are totally typical of someone that age.

You’ve been on TV for years now. Are movies next for you?
It’s funny—for a lot of people, features are the dream, and they’re like, “When life settles down, maybe I’ll go to TV.” For me, it’s the opposite. I’ve really fallen in love with television. TV acting is a great skill to have, and it’s nice to have that stability.

But you’re into movies and music too, right?
I can do a little bit of everything, which is such a blessing. I have an amazing team of people around me. They don’t come to me and say “You should really do this, or you should reallyconsider that.” It’s, “Do you care about this project? Do you really want to do this? If not, don’t push it.” Acting and the industry of making movies is beautiful, but it’s so exhausting and suchhard work, if you don’t absolutely 100% want to do something, it defeats the purpose. You haveto want to do it and choose things that are worth fighting for. A career is not as much defined by things you say “yes” to as much as things you say “no” to.

You’re also recording an album! What should we expect from that?
I wouldn’t do the music thing if it weren’t for my brother, who’s a producer. He understands me and helps my vision come to life. I want to tell stories, and I want to tell them in the right way. He helps me do that. For the longest time, I was afraid to be a Disney girl who does music. It’s like, I love those girls. Those girls are my favorite. But it didn’t feel like me! Music is such an intensely personal thing for me, and I knew if I was going to do it, it would be in my own way.

What does it sound like?
There’s a little bit of everything. There are ukeleles and screaming guitars and loud drums and fun piano. It really is a fun record that’s about experiencing every shade of life.

You also manage to do a lot of charity work, too! What are you doing right now?
I’m an ambassador for Disney’s Friends for Change, and I asked them if there’s anything we can do to help little girls in India get education and a better quality of life, because that’s important to me. A few months later they introduced me to an incredible charity called Free the Children, which helps young people empower other young people. They recently partnered with Amwayto look for changemakers who are positively affecting their communities and, therefore, the world.

You always look awesome on the red carpet. Are you into fashion?
It’s such an exciting subplot of what I do. I’m blessed because get to tell stories and help people, but I also get to step out and wear cool things and tell people who I am. I’m inspired by street style and Teen Vogue. I love band tees and pearl earrings!
