Sarah Palin is out with a slickly produced video that captures her impromptu visit to the Iowa State Fair last week in the most positive light possible. And the release is certain to fire up yet another round of will-she-or-won't-she speculation about a presidential bid. Unlike "The Undefeated," the hagiographical film released this summer that was produced outside Palin's circle, the new spot, dubbed "Iowa Passion" is a product of Palin's political action committee, making it perhaps the biggest tease yet about a possible run. ( Watch video below .)

Poor Kate Upton. Can't a bikini-clad bombshell dance the "cat daddy" in peace? The answer would appear to be no, judging by this week's controversy over a steamy shoot with fashion photographer Terry Richardson that had Upton taking a break from posing to show off her cat daddy skills. In a video posted Monday to Richardson's blog Terry's Diary, Upton, on a break between shots, performs the cat daddy, a dance move made popular by the group the Rej3ctz and Chris Brown.

Scientists have released video of an 8-foot-long, shimmering oarfish taken about 200 feet below the ocean surface -- and it is breathtaking. Elusive and alien-looking, the oarfish has a thin, eel-like body with squiggly iridescent markings that glow blue in the video. It also has a long dorsal fin that stretches the length of nearly half its body, and large round eyes rimmed in silver. That bright white blob you see in the fish's spiny dorsal fins is a parasitic isopod -- sort of like an ocean version of the roly poly bug -- that has attached itself to the fish.

Justin Bieber has gone from wee pop star to wee-wee punk, getting caught on video urinating into an unsuspecting janitor's mop bucket. Yeah, gross. In the video (see it here , via TMZ ) shot earlier this year in New York City, the Biebs and his pals are allegedly exiting a night club the back way, through a restaurant kitchen, when the 19-year-old feels the call of nature and decides to relieve himself in what a friend calls the "quickest restroom we could find" - a working person's yellow bucket.

Taking a break from its training camp in San Bernardino, UCLA's football team decided to head to the bowling alley Tuesday night for a bonding and bowling session. The word spreading is that quarterback Richard Brehaut was the player with the best bowling skills, but he received plenty of competition from assistant coach Marques Tuiasosopo, a former quarterback. Of course, the Bruins hope to go bowling this season, as in a Rose Bowl. And some of their players are getting skills in being media commentators, as indicated by the video above.

Kanye West's official video for “Black Skinhead” is finally out. West posted a link to the completed video for the single (stylized as "BLKKK SKKKN HEAD") on his website Monday morning. A rough cut of the clip, the first visual from his polarizing album “Yeezus,” leaked online earlier this month, igniting a furor of tweets from the rapper. “Me and Nick Knight have been working on this video for 5 months and for creatives it's heartbreaking when something like this happens,” he fired off . “Allow me and Nick to give the world what we've been losing sleep over.” RELATED: Kanye West tangles with another paparazzo In the black-and-white clip, a CGI-version of a very buff and shirtless West dances and raps in the dark using some coarse language as well as haunting images, including some rather ferocious Dobermans and Ku Klux Klan-inspired visuals.

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.
