Three-quarters of your body is submerged in skin-temperature salt water that makes it difficult to tell where your body stops and the water begins.

Women have accused the singer of sexual abuse for decades. So why are they only being listened to now?

Celebrity Doppelgängers That'll Make You Do A Double Take

Photo: Steve Granitz/WireImage. It's almost eerie how much some celebrities resemble each other. Just look at the star of Netflix's Sex Education, British actress Maeve Wiley — she looks just like Margot Robbie. Enough so that when you Google her name, Margot Robbie's name pops up right after it. But these two actresses both share high cheekbones, they aren't related at all, and probably haven't even met (yet.) Yet, the two of them could easily share a passport or star in a madcap series of...

Paul Kelly: Interviewing an Australian Icon

None If you're not from Australasia, you might have heard of Paul Kelly. You might not have. He's toured overseas extensively, yes, though as he tells us, "when we tour America, we play in little clubs. I love that." It's not surprising that discrete, hole-in-the-wall venues suit Mr. Kelly.

So perhaps it stands to reason that those north of the equator may not be ...
