The Most Shocking Ice Bucket Challenge to Date? Anna Wintour Douses Her Famous Bob

08/20/2014 at 01:22 PM ET

By now your Facebook and Instagram feeds are flooded with videos of friends taking the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. And you know that Hollywood has joined the cause full force. But there was one person we never expected to pour freezing water on top of her perfectly tamed bob: Anna Wintour. The Vogue editor-in-chief proved us very wrong — if it’s true that the Devil Wears Prada, then hell has officially “frozen over,” because she not only participated, she did it in a big way!

Wintour accepted the charity-benefiting challenge from her daughter Bee Shaffer (who was originally nominated by actress Allison Williams, if you’re not up on your celeb ice bucket chain). Clad in her sophisticated signature floral day dress and oversized shades, the legendarily icy editor is the picture of composure — right up until she gets doused by a number of ice water-filled buckets, with a little help from her young family members. Watch the clip below.

Shaffer took a somewhat anti-Anna approach to the challenge, wearing a white t-shirt, black bra and opting for some NSFW language to express her feelings about the ice bath. (When posting the zoomed-in version of her mom’s video, Shaffer does say her mom took a more “dignified” approach to the challenge.)

Cumberland American coach David Belisle talks with pitcher CJ Davock, left, and catcher Trey Bourque

It’s not whether you win or lose – it’s how you play the game. And for one baseball coach, it’s also how you cheer up your young team.

The Cumberland American from Rhode Island lost a nail-biter to Chicago’s Jackie Robinson West in a Little League World Series match on Monday, falling 8-7, according to the Providence Journal.

But coach David Belisle’s post-game speech to his tearful players has gone viral with its message of hard work, hometown pride and, above all, love.

“The only reason why I’ll probably end up shedding a tear is ’cause this is the last time I’ll probably end up coaching you guys,” Belisle said. “But I’m gonna bring with me, and the coaches staff is gonna bring back, and you guys are gonna bring back, something that no other team can provide but you guys. That’s pride.”

“You’re gonna take that for the rest of your life what you provided for a town in Cumberland. You had the whole place jumpin’, you had the whole state jumpin’, you had New England jumpin’, because you want know why? They like fighters. They like sportsmen. They like guys who don’t quit. They like guys who play the game the right way. We got down to the nitty gritty. We’re one of the best teams in the world.”

ESPN cameras caught the cute huddle and the rest of Belisle’s inspiring words. Watch them below:

Chase Rice: I’m More Than a Party Guy

Backstage at the Hard Rock Live in Orlando, country singer Chase Rice is set to appear onstage as part of the K92.3 All-Star Jam, whose roster includes Jamie Lynn Spears and Big & Rich.

The large and impatient crowd – which includes a striking number of pretty, 20-something women – is enthusiastically waiting for their hero Rice to hit the stage.

“He is so hot,” one concertgoer tells her girlfriends. “I hope we can get his attention.”

“We should throw something on stage,” replies one friend. (See Rice’s thoughts about what, exactly, women should throw onstage in the video below.)

In his dressing room, Rice is pumped up. His single “Ready, Set, Roll” has recently gone gold and is still climbing the charts. He co-wrote “Cruise,” the No. 1 smash by Florida Georgia Line. And now, finally, the crowds know who he is – and have come to see him.

“The audiences have been fantastic,” he tells PEOPLE, sipping Jack and Coke from a blue Solo cup. “When they have a lot of energy, I have a lot of energy. We feed off each other. I love those seconds before I go onstage, because I know we’re gonna have a good time.”

But behind the party boy image, the 27-year-old has a serious side, which he explores on his new album, Ignite the Night..

“I’m a young kid who’s having a good time on the road,” he says. “But as much as I like to party, I’ve been through a lot of heartache. When I was 22, I lost my dad. He was really everything to me. I’ll always carry his memory with me. So my new album has a lot of party songs, but it has some really serious parts to it, as well. It’s a tribute to my dad.”

The album was released Tuesday, which would have been his father’s 64th birthday.

Relaxed and energetic, Rice sat with PEOPLE to talk about his career – and some of the surprising facts that people might not know about him.

His promising football career ended with injury

Yes, the 6’3″, 200-lb. Rice was once 40 pounds heavier when he was a linebacker for the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. With dreams of playing in the NFL, Rice gave football everything he had.

“It was a fantastic experience,” he says, “I learned a lot of lessons about myself: hard work, discipline … but then I tore a tendon in my ankle, to the outside of the Achilles tendon. I went through rehab and tried to come back, but I just wasn’t the same player. Mentally, I was screwed. I knew that the NFL wasn’t going to give me a shot, so it was time to move on.”

He was on a NASCAR pit crew

With football behind him, Rice turned to another dream: being part of successful NASCAR team. He joined Hendrick Motorsports. He worked with NASCAR great Jimmie Johnson‘s Cup car, and the team won two championships.

“In many ways, it was a dream come true,” says Rice. “I loved everything about it. There’s something awesome about being at the track that I just can’t explain. But I knew that my dream was to be a musician. I worked there for a few years, and then decided to follow another dream.”

He was on a reality show

Something funny happened on the way to Nashville. Rice was approached to compete on Survivor in 2010. He spent 39 days playing the game in Nicaragua, finishing second.

“I appreciate every opportunity I have had,” he says carefully. “And I don’t want to be ungrateful for anything. But I also don’t want to fight the perception that I’m just a reality star who did a TV show to further my singing career. I don’t want it to close any doors. There are people who might not give me a listen because I was on a reality show. It was a good opportunity that came at a time that I was ready for it, but it was just one part of my life.”

He is 100 percent single – but open to love

“Right now, my career is my girlfriend,” says Rice. “But that’s not to say I wouldn’t be open to a relationship with the right woman. I’m having fun, I’m young. But it won’t always be this way. I’d love to find the right girl to marry and have kids.” He pauses. “Just not right now.”

“Everything has always happened in the right timing for me,” he says. “I have had a ton of experiences that have been awesome and have made me who I am today. I wouldn’t be here without all these things happening. So I can be patient to settle down. When it happens, it happens.”
