Time for another weekend news roundup! We’ve got new songs, new shoes, new creatures, and a new reason to drink beer, all served hot and fresh for your reading pleasure. Read on, bros!

John Mayer has a new original song, and it sounds straight out of his “Your Body Is A Wonderland” days. Listen to “Love On The Weekend” here:


Bruno Mars
 has also dropped his new album, 24K Magic. The nine-track record, which counts Halle Berry, T-Pain, and James Fauntleroy among its collaborators, will be followed up with a 2017 world tour. You think he’ll stop by here in the PH?


While the days of collecting Hot Wheels are over for most of us, we still can’t help but be insanely jealous of Bruce Pascal’s 3,500-strong collection, which is reportedly worth an estimated $1 million. His most prized car: a pink Volkswagen Beach Bomb Rear-Loader, which is worth around $150,000. Imagine all the real cars you can buy with all that money!


Staying in a hotel is always fun! That is, until you find a dead body under your seemingly pristine bed, like what happened in Mexico City’s El Senador hotel. Um, sweet dreams?


Thinking of getting your hands on the Nike HyperAdapt 1.0? You better start saving up now: The self-lacing sneaks, which will be available in NYC on December 1, have a $720 price tag. Coldplay tickets na lang!

If you can’t afford the Nike HyperAdapt just yet, you can wait for Adidas’ environment-friendly UltraBoosts, which have 100% biodegradable uppers made of a new fabric called Biosteel Yarn. These babies should be out by 2017.


You remember all those times you tried to cram as much info as you can hours before an exam? Well, science says it’s better to take a nap instead of squeezing in a last-minute review. Just don’t forget to set your alarm in time for your exam!

Are you swimming in cash and thirsty AF? 19-year-old Chinese student Xu Yanhua is auctioning her virginity to pay for her 23-year-old brother’s leukemia treatments. Or at least, she tried to—it’s apparently illegal to sell one’s virginity in China. Still, we hope some kind soul helped them out!


LeBron James
 has pledged to donate $2.5 million to his idol Muhammad Ali exhibit at the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture. "I think of him every day. Without his passion and goals and morals, I don’t know if I’d be sitting here today talking to you about it." We’re sure the late boxing legend would be proud of LeBron!

David Blaine
 was this close to meeting his end at his show Beyond Magic, where he had himself shot in the mouth for a trick. Something went wrong though: the mouth guard he used was a faulty one, shattering when the bullet hit it. Good thing he’s fine!


There are lots of health benefits to smoking marijuana, but here’s one not-so-nice side effect: when smoked regularly, the stuff can drastically speed up the rate at which your body ages by affecting your heart rate. Puff with caution!


When we think of dinosaurs—even the flying ones—we imagine brute creatures with razor-sharp teeth and leathery skin. We don’t think of them as vicious flying creatures with glittery feathers, which describes a newly discovered airborne dino in China. It’s still perfect for the Pink Ranger!


Here’s a good reason to grab a drink tonight: A new study says moderate beer consumption can help drinkers maintain their levels of good cholesterol over time. Cheers to that!


Battling a bad flu or a stomach bug? Avoid coffee at all costs. It’s a diuretic, preventing you from getting hydrated enough. The muscles in your digestive system also react to the stuff, leading to ickier diarrhea. Yuck!


Forbes has unveiled its latest list of the 30 top-earning celebs under the age of 30. At the top: Taylor Swift, who raked in $170 million in 2015 alone. Trailing behind her at a far second and third are the One Direction boys and football god Lionel Messi. Rihanna is in fifth place, Kevin Durant’s eighth, and Jordan Spieth’s tenth.
