When you're skateboard daredevil Bam Margera, you do things your way.
The "Jackass" star tied the knot with girlfriend Nicole Boyd during the Random Hero Festival this weekend in Reykjavik, Iceland, and then posted the video to YouTube.
The multi-talented groom stayed true to his skater-boy roots and wore a hoodie, while his beautiful bride stunned in a lacy white backless gown.
After some major PDA on stage with the new Mrs. Margera, the star serenaded the crowd with his band "F***face Unstoppable."
Katherine Heigl's 'Grey's' Co-star Dishes on Her Career

It's not just you who noticed the bumps and bruises of Katherine Heigl's career. The actress' "Grey's Anatomy" co-star Ellen Pompeo told the New York Post that it was Heigl's movie career misfortune that kept her on the hit series.
"When Katie left, it was tough," Pompeo says. "You could understand why she wanted to go. When you're offered a $12 million movie and you're only 26. But Katie's problem is that she should not have renewed her contract. She re-upped, took a big raise and then tried to get off the show. And then her movie career did not take off."

It's all about the (brand new) Benjamins! Today, '90s references aside, is the day we've all been waiting for, when the new $100 bill makes its debut. The long-delayed bill was originally due in 2011, with the delay caused by a problem with the currency's new security measures, not the government shutdown. It has several features designed to make it harder for counterfeiters to replicate. Be sure to fill your wallets with it today!

Speaking of the '90s, Shania Twain has returned. It has been a long eight years since Twain hit the stage, and the country-tinged star did not disappoint when she strutted her stuff at the first show of her two-year Las Vegas residency Saturday. Before the 47-year-old even opened her mouth for her "Shania: Still the One" show at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, she received a standing ovation. Welcome back, Shania, we missed you.

You get a piece! You get a piece! Have you ever wanted your own, personal piece of Oprah? Well, now you can. OWN mogul Oprah Winfrey will be auctioning off furniture, art and more as she renovates her 23,000-square-foot Montecito, Calif., estate, OWN and Harpo Productions announced Monday.
The very, very wealthy Winfrey has said she wants a home that's more "her," and has tapped designer Rose Tarlow, who has done homes for the likes of Barbara Walters, Eli Broad and David Geffen, to redo her crib. The Social Climber can't wait see what she does.
