BRUCE JENNER isn't undergoing a gender reassignment; he's just going through a mid-life crisis and is addicted to plastic surgery. At least that's the story from sources close to the Kardashian family and Jenner's sons. These sources say that Bruce is changing his look because of his "Michael Jackson-like obsession with plastic surgery" and is struggling to re-gain his youth. Of course, these may be the same sources that said Bruce and Kris Jenner's marriage was just fine. It's also well known that the Kardashians like to control media stories about their family.

Radioactive peaked at number three, while I'm Yours only went to number six. However, there is an asterisk as Mraz's 76 weeks were consecutive while Imagine Dragons have tallied their 76 weeks in two separate runs.

The poop presents were so popular that the Higashiyama Zoo in Nagoya distributed packages containing koala droppings and hand-written notes that were gone in less than 10 minutes.
