A Georgia teen took a hearse to prom and arrived in a casket.
Georgia teen Alexandrea Clark raised eyebrows after she rolling up to prom in a hearse and a casket. Instead of the typical limo that most students take, Clark has shared her prom pics on Twitter of her wearing a black and gold dress standing in front of a hearse.
Her grand entrance was even more show stopping: she was carried out of the hearse in a casket and when it opened, it revealed a smiling Alexandrea. And by the way? It's not like she was trying to be obnoxious, but rather, the idea was to celebrate her career choice after graduation: she currently works at a funeral home and wants to become a funeral director.
- But she also had another reason - warning her fellow classmates against drinking and driving. While some folks argued that this could be offensive to parents that have lost their kids, Alexandrea is unapologetic. “This is just what I do, and this is my career that I plan on doing and I love what I do,” she explains. “I love being around people and helping others. And it’s not to disrespect anybody.”

Researchers says that obsessing over celebrities could lead to mental issues.
Right now the world is going crazy over Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s wedding, but could some be taking their obsession too far? Maybe. If that's you, psychiatrist Sue Varma warns that it could lead mental problems down the road.
Varma says that what may seem like innocent fandom over the royals, could slowly intensify raising red flags about the person’s mental health. “I absolutely don’t have a problem with somebody having an obsession with the royal family,” Varma explains. “It’s the lack of other activities...the fact that you’re taking away time from something else. Is this time that you could have been spending with your kids? Is this time you could be talking with your partner?”
She goes on to say that relationships with other people and your own body image can suffer when you're obsessing over celebrities. Varna adds, “This is a problem when you’re living in a fantasy world at the expense of creating real relationships.” So basically...have your fun and know your limits.
All this time and we didn’t know, not only does Barbie have a last name, she has three sisters too.
Brace yourself, people. Apparently Barbie has a last name … and it’s not Doll. If you’ve been living your life this whole time thinking she was a one name gal, like Oprah or Cher, you’re not alone. But it turns out, our old childhood friend has a family name and we’re not sure how we missed this.
The news of Barbie’s last name sent many Twitter users into low-key freakout mode last week. It all started on National Siblings Day (April 10) when the @Barbie Twitter account tweeted a brief message in honor of the holiday: “Happy #SiblingsDay, from the Roberts sisters,” along with a photo of Barbie and her three sisters.
And while some tweeted that they had no idea Barbie even had sisters, lots of folks were blown away that Roberts is her last name. Her full name is Barbara Millicent Roberts, in fact. The iconic doll was created in the 1950s by Ruth Handler, who founded the Mattel toy company with her husband, Elliot, and Harold Matson. She named the doll after her own daughter and a legend was born.
