How can Neil Patrick Harris ever beat his greatest stunt?

Neil Patrick Harris

Neil Patrick Harris' prank-centric variety series "Best Time Ever" premieres tonight. Seems ridiculous that he'd even try to top the outrageous stunt he pulled two years ago. It's the single most impressive thing I've seen the host of a major awards show perform on air.

Grace Jones

Grace Jones, the singer, supermodel, and onetime James Bond foe, is finally releasing a memoir entitled "I'll Never Write My Memoirs." She has plenty to recount, including her friendship with Andy Warhol, her childhood in Jamaica, and being a provocative pop culture presence at a time where you could go on "The Tonight Show" and rile people by not seeming down to Earth.
