    Hundreds of people packed the streets outside Webster Hall in Manhattan's East Village after Kanye West teased a surprise concert there early Monday — but the concert was ultimately canceled as the crowd grew and grew, leading to a frenzied scene that left behind smashed cars and piles of trash.

Photos and video posted online show hundreds, possibly thousands, of people gathered outside the concert venue. Some fans climbed on top of cars and others scaled poles and light posts....

    Kanye West has apologised to Taylor Swift for ruining her 2009 Video Music Awards (VMAs) acceptance speech. The rapper wrote on Twitter: 'I'm sorry, Taylor.

    An animal rights group wants the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach to gut its cafeteria menu of fish and seafood, arguing that "serving fish at an aquarium is like serving poodle burgers at a dog show."

"An institution with a mission that includes teaching people to respect...

When Perez heated up the fish sticks she also heated up the gun, which caused several rounds to be fired. One hit...
