3. Watch Rihanna Twerk in Her Naked CFDA Dress

Rihanna's CFDA Awards see-through dress is all anyone can talk about, and for good reason.

The iconic singer was honored Monday night at the awards show, but the focus was on her translucent, sparkly Adam Selman gown adorned with 230,000 Swarovski crystals.

4. Why Did 12-Year-Olds Stab Friend For ‘Slender Man’?

Criminal and psychological experts say they’d be surprised if investigators didn’t find evidence of psychological problems in either of the 12-year-old Wisconsin girls who allegedly tried to stab their friend to death over the weekend.

The girls told police they attacked their friend in the woods to please an internet meme called Slender Man, a fictional character who hunts children and has no face, according to the Associated Press.

The girls thought if they killed their friend, Slender Man would reveal himself, and they could prove he was real, according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.
