After conquering the desert with star-studded sets at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival the last two weekends, Pharrell Williams' iron-clad grip on the pop conversation continues with his latest video, “Marilyn Monroe.” The video, which debuted Wednesday, doesn't boast much of a plot. It does, however, offer plenty of gorgeous women, flashy choreographed vignettes and lots of shots of his beloved, oversize hat. There's even an appearance by Kelly Osbourne. Here are five things we learned from watching: PHOTOS: Faces of Coachella 2014 1. He loves all kinds of women, OK. Pharrell faced some pretty harsh, and woefully unfair, criticism when he released the cover art to his album “Girl,” which featured him and three women all clad in robes and sunglasses.

A small group of people stood off to the side of a road near Baltimore on Tuesday afternoon, staring at a column of flames from a derailed frieght train in the distance. "How far -- how far away you think we are?" a man asked. Before anyone could answer, a large explosion ripped through the air, sending a response to the onlookers scurrying away: Too close. The train explosion could be felt for miles in Rosedale, a few miles east of downtown Baltimore, where residents could see a towering black column of smoke rising into the air after the blast.

There is nothing like listening to Stephen A. Smith drop names, places and other various references to his many friends in the sporting world when he's on ESPN's First Take morning program or breaking down the NBA on various other broadcasts. A lot of people don't like his shtick, but let's face it, most of the big-time personalities on sports television mimic talk radio these days: the louder and more emphatic you say it, the better. You don't have to be right. Or wrong.

Ecuadorean President Rafael Correa on Saturday dismissed as a "sham" a newly released video in which a Colombian rebel commander discusses contributing money to Correa's 2006 election campaign. The video, whose existence was revealed by the Associated Press on Friday, appears to lend credibility to allegations that the leftist Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia contributed to the Correa campaign.

A  UC Irvine  fraternity has volunteered to suspend itself after it was blasted for a member-produced video that featured a student in blackface. Lambda Theta Delta announced Wednesday that it would cancel all major events and stop operating as a UCI-sanctioned organization until fall 2014. "This decision is mainly due to the abhorrent, insensitive and highly offensive 'blackface' video created by our members that has been circulated widely on the Internet," members of the Asian fraternity said in a  statement on their Facebook page . Lambda Theta Delta  came under fire  toward the end of April for the video on its YouTube page that showed four of its members lip-syncing to the Justin Timberlake/ Jay-Z  song "Suit and Tie. " The student playing Jay-Z wore blackface in the video.

Serena Williams wowed a lot of people, including David Letterman, when she appeared on his talk show Wednesday night wearing a form-fitting (to say the least) red dress. "I think I saw your eyes almost pop out there," Williams said. "Well, I think so.... That's not the only thing," Letterman responded. (Note to Dave: After your recent history, perhaps jokes like that aren't the wisest to make.) Williams is in New York preparing for next week's U.S. Open, the final Grand Slam tournament of the year.

Thanks to NASA, you can now stare at the sun for three minutes straight. No, don't run outside and look up. Instead, check out the clip above that condenses three years of sun images into a hypnotic three-minute video that shows our closest star rotating on its axis, radiating energy and light. The images in the video were taken by the Solar Dynamics Observatory, a NASA satellite that launched three years ago in 2010, with the express purpose of helping scientists better understand the sun and how its magnetic fields shift and change.  To that end, the Solar Dynamics Observatory is constantly monitoring the sun, including snapping an image of it every 12 seconds in 10 different wavelengths.
