Rihanna Runs on Less Than Four Hours of Sleep a Night

STAYING AWAKE: What does it take to become Rihanna? Less than four hours’ sleep per night, apparently.
The “Wild Thoughts” singer shares insights into her personal life and inspirations as guest editor of the December issue of Vogue Paris, scheduled to go on sale on Dec. 1. The issue comes with three separate covers shot by Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, Jean-Paul Goude and Juergen Teller.
A section titled “A Girl Like Me” opens with a candid shot of Rihanna divebombing into a pool in the Dominican Republic. In the accompanying caption, she reveals that she usually likes to spend her days off on tour sightseeing rather than sunbathing.
“I have a lot of trouble switching off. Even when I get home early, which means before 1 a.m., I start binge-watching shows or documentaries, which I love. I can’t go straight to bed. As a matter of fact, I only sleep three or four hours a night,” she is quoted as saying in the French text.

Kid Runs On Set And Appears To Fart At TV Weatherman On The Air

They don’t teach you how to deal with this in meteorology class.

TV weatherman Patrick Ellis of Mississippi’s WLBT does his best to roll with a boy who invades the set and apparently blasts a fart at him, Thrillist reported. Before he is pulled off the stage during Saturday’s newscast, the kid gives his own forecast, saying “there are farts everywhere and toots.”

What does one wear for toots? Does London Fog make that kind of outerwear?

Anyway, props to Ellis for keeping his cool. He certainly discovered why the W.C. Fields-credited warning about working with kids and dogs (and farts?) holds true.

I had my own viral moment last night; all I’m going to say is watch out for the ‘toots’ across central Mississippi,” he wrote on Facebook.

The boy is the son of a lawyer who was scheduled to appear on an attorney call-in show at the station, Ellis explained, per Adweek .

The alleged gas seems to explode around the :33 mark above. Hear it?

Newspaper Runs Photo Of Alec Baldwin Instead Of Donald Trump

Alec Baldwin has won praise for playing President Donald Trump.

And it turns out he’s so convincing, a Dominican Republic newspaper ran a photo of the actor portraying Trump instead of the president. The article discussed Trump’s stance on Israeli settlements, according to Haaretz.

El Nacional issued a correction shortly after the Friday gaffe, but not before it had circulated all over the internet:

Baldwin has been playing Trump regularly on “Saturday Night Live,” much to the president’s annoyance.

In defense of El Nacional, Baldwin’s version of Trump looks far more presidential than the president himself. Baldwin will likely be playing the president again when he hosts this week’s “Saturday Night Live.”

Nintendo Switch Reportedly Runs Much Slower When Not Docked

Leaked specs of the Nintendo Switch point to some sacrifices in power when the console is taken out of its dock.

A report from Eurogamer, sourcing from and adding to news from a VentureBeat report, shows the graphical processing unit on the Switch operates at 307.2MHz when undocked. Docked, the GPU can run at 768MHz.

However, developers have the option to run their games on the slower configuration even when the unit is plugged into the dock, to keep consistency across portable and home use.
