Michael Phelps Explains That Photo of His Hilariously Intense Stare He Made Right Behind Tiger Woods

Michael Phelps has done it again. No, not another Olympic medal: but another viral face.

During Wednesday’s episode of Today, the most-decorated Olympic athlete of all time spoke about what it was like to watch Tiger Woods’ iconic comeback as he won the Masters on Sunday for the fifth time, but the first time in over a decade.

Phelps, who had an amazing seat for the championship, called Woods’ win one of the “coolest things I’ve ever seen live in sports, and definitely in golf.”

Phelps’ excitement definitely was visible. Some viewers of the Masters in Augusta, Georgia, which Phelps says was the first he’d ever attended, caught a pretty excellent (and soon viral) moment on camera. Phelps had a seat just behind Tiger for his shot at the 16th hole in the tournament.

Phelps told Today just how special that moment felt. “I mean, just watching Tiger come back, watching him be able to do that and get back on top of the mountain, it’s so cool.” And it was even cooler, the swimmer said, because he didn’t have his phone on him during the Masters. Afterwards, he did receive some texts from people who noticed him during the broadcast. His wife, Nicole, captured the moment in an Instagram post as she watched with their son, Boomer, on TV.

During the 2016 Olympics in Rio, the internet fell in love with the #PhelpsFace, an intensely meme-able mug he had on before competing against Olympian Chad le Clos.

Nicki Minaj and Cardi B Call a Truce After Hours of Intense Feuding Online

Nicki Minaj and Cardi B appear to have put an end to weeks of mutual insults culminating in a day of back and forth that began with an altercation at a New York Fashion Week party in September.

Video from the event hosted by Harper’s Bazar appeared to show Cardi being escorted out by security with a large bump on her head after she reportedly threw a shoe at Minaj. Since then, the pair have been trading barbs over social media, radio and in the press.

But now they have agreed to take a break from the spat, with Minaj tweeting Tuesday morning that she wanted to focus on “positive things only”:

Cardi then posted the tweet to her Instagram, adding her own pledge to be positive.

The dispute had reached dramatic proportions late on Monday, with Cardi posting ten videos of herself on Instagram in which she accused Cardi of leaking her phone number in the wake of the Fashion Week encounter.

She also suggested she was considering suing Minaj for “defamation of character” after her claims that Cardi had bought her way into charts by paying radio stations to play her songs.

Now, though, it looks like the spat won’t be moving from Instagram to the courtroom any time soon.

Your HelloGiggles horoscope, October 7th to 13th: Our relationships are about to get intense AF

Your HelloGiggles horoscope, October 7th to 13th: Our relationships are about to get intense AF

Your HelloGiggles horoscope, October 7th to 13th: Our relationships are about to get intense AF

Lately you’ve probably been spending your time admiring the autumn leaves with your loved ones, sipping your PSLs, and daydreaming about your Halloween costume. Well, say goodbye to those tranquil and friendly vibes from the Fall Equinox, because things are about to get intense—and enlightening. On October 6th, Venus goes retrograde (yes, another retrograde) in Scorpio, forcing us to take a good, hard look at our relationships for the next six weeks. Then, on the 8th, a New Moon in Libra means we’ll be further reassessing our current connections. Your relationships won’t know what hit ’em this week!

The New Moon in Libra, the sign that’s known for its partnerships, gives a bit of a surge to Venus Retrograde, especially since Venus rules Libra. You’ll be looking for commitment and confirmation from all of your relationships, including romantic, business, and platonic. At the same time, if long-term isn’t in the stars for you, then be prepared to let some people go. As is the theme of the seasonal change into fall, it’s time to shed the old and outdated and prepare for the new.


Your relationship inventory is going to take a hit this week, Libra. With Venus, your home planet, going retrograde, and a New Moon in your sign, you’ll be feeling the changes more than most. As the sign of balance, your biggest question will be: Where, and with whom, do you find the most harmony? Proceed from there.


Venus is going retrograde in your sign this week, Scorpio. Just when you thought you couldn’t get anymore intense, think again. You’re evaluating your relationships like a harsh judge who’s sick and tired of being taken for granted. You’re more than ready to cut people out of your life. But remember: you can only get as good as you give.


It’s time to take it easy, Sag. You often put too much pressure on yourself and point out what hasn’t happened or what you haven’t done more so than what you have accomplished. Try to view your relationships in this light too. Every breakup or disappointment is a lesson and a blessing.


You’ve been focusing so much on work lately, Capricorn, that you have conveniently forgotten about your social life. There is a world outside of your career, and now is the time to remember that. Take stock of what you’d like to cultivate in your relationships, and use the power of the New Moon to manifest your deepest desires.


Your sex life is about to get crazy intense, Aquarius. Temptations and taboo subjects surround you, including past indiscretions that you thought were dead and buried. Now is your moment to decide whether you will fall for what’s being offered or hold out for what you really want.


You’re feeling a little out of your element in the love department, Pisces. Maybe you’re flying solo after a long-term relationship or maybe you’re flying by the seat of your pants in a new partnership. Whatever your situation, it’s important not to lose sight of yourself and your needs. When in doubt, rely on your killer intuition.


Your impulsive ways are being put to the test this week, Aries. You’ll want to move full-steam ahead with a new project or passionate affair, but now isn’t the best time to throw caution to the wind. Instead, reflect on the lessons of the past year and see where you can implement lasting changes to reap long-term fulfillment.


Since Venus is your ruling planet, Taurus, you’ll definitely feel the effects of her going retrograde. In some ways, it might feel like your whole world has been turned upside down. What felt fine last week suddenly feels really uncomfortable. Likewise, what or who you didn’t appreciate before might be the thing/person you value most.


This week, Gemini, you’ll be asked to understand and compromise with someone a lot more than you normally would, or like to. While it’ll feel uncomfortable to put yourself out there more than usual, there’s a lot to be said about extending extra kindness and energy to those who need it most.


Your home life is about to change, Cancer. While you might be undergoing necessary changes, no matter how daunting they might be, reframing your past is the best way to put it behind you for good. Do what you can with what you have right now, and leave the past behind you.


It’s time to let the people in your life take care of you, Leo. While you never give up an opportunity to be pampered, you don’t like to be vulnerable. However, everyone needs to surrender at times. Allow yourself to be nurtured and held. It’s gonna be okay.


You’re feeling all sorts of feels this week, Virgo, which is different for you. While you might not like to acknowledge and process deep emotions, this is a necessary part of your evolution. Don’t suppress your deepest desires. Unabashedly want what you want and feel what you feel.

This week is gonna shake up our love lives real good, bbs. However, this is all leading us towards our higher good, including deep, lasting relationships that help us thrive. We gotta feel it to heal it.

The new David Attenborough show looks super intense and we’re so here for it

It’s good to have you back, Sir David.

Happy World Animal Day, everyone! We’re kicking it off with some exciting animal-related news as Sir David Attenborough is back with yet another nature documentary series, which will fill the void that Planet Earth and Blue Planet left when they ended. He’ll be bringing a new show to the BBC called Dynasties and the exciting trailer dropped earlier today, proving that it’s unlike anything we’ve seen before.

The nature documentary is unlike anything we’ve ever seen before, as it’s going to hone in on just five species of animal: emperor penguins, tigers, lions and more. According to the BBC,every episode will focus on an individual endangered animal and follow their struggle for survival in the wild. The series, which took four years to film and create, looks wasymore like a tense reality TV drama centred around an animal rather than a nature documentary. We’re here for it.

If you’re a diehard Planet Earth II fan, the team behind it are the same one responsible for Dynasties — so you know it’s going to be good.

And of course, Sir David Attenborough will be lending his iconic voice to the show and seems to have travelled the world for the show, which isn’t bad going for a man who’s in his nineties now.

There’s no word yet on when the new show is set to drop, however the trailer definitely has us hungry for more.

TBH if the entire show was just an hour of that baby penguin shuffling through the snow, we’d probably be on board.
