Justin Bieber Shaves Tiny, Wispy ‘Stache in Instagram Video (You’ll Want to Watch)

08/21/2014 at 11:35 AM ET

If you’re among the millions of Americans suffering from “Justin Bieber Tiny Mustache Gross-Out Syndrome,” you’re not alone. Many of us have been afflicted by it since he first debuted the wispy, patchy upper-lip look (seen below) last year. But there is light at the end of the tunnel: Bieber has reached for the razor and is clean shaven once more.

Of course, he didn’t do it alone — or in private. Bieber recorded the whole process for the world to see while pal Lil Za cheered him on. Clad in a Buffalo plaid sleeveless shirt and sporting his signature swoop of hair, Bieber brands his razor, leans into the camera to whisper “R.I.P. ‘Stache” (warning: may haunt your nightmares) and finally lathers up to remove his tiny strip of upper-lip hair. Here’s the Instagram for your viewing “pleasure.”

RELATED PHOTOS: Obsessed or hot mess?

“Ur boy got rid of his stash,” Bieber captioned his follow-up photo, displaying the baby face that propelled him to fame. Immediate fan reaction seemed to be relieved and enthusiastic. “THANK YOU SO MUCH JUSTIN THANK YOU THANK YOU,” wrote one Instagram commenter. “Omg omg omg, PERFECT BABY,” wrote another.

How are you feeling in a post-‘stache world? Relieved? Anxious? Share thoughts below.

Lost Letter Written 83 Years Ago Finally Delivered to Maine Family

Miriam McMichael’s 1931 letter to Dollena McMichael

A letter written by a Maine school teacher in 1931 intended for her mother 150 miles away has finally been delivered – 83 years later.

A then-23-year-old Miriam McMichael sent the nine-page letter from Houlton, Maine, to Dollena McMichael, her mother, in Pittsfield, Maine. Both women have since died.

The letter was lost and only recently found at the Pittsfield post office. Postal worker Michelle Rowell found it and tells the Morning Sentinel she knew it was old because of the 2-cent stamp.

The postmaster and town officials tracked down the family, and the letter is now in the hands of 69-year-old Ann MacMichael, of Cornville, Maine, Miriam’s niece and Dollena’s granddaughter. The spelling of the family name has changed.

MacMichael says the irony is that her aunt apologizes in the letter for not writing sooner. Miriam and her mother were close and often wrote one another.

“One of the best parts for me of what she wrote was that she apologized for not writing sooner, as she knew her mother had been anxiously waiting all week for a letter – which, as we know, was never received,” Ann MacMichael told the Morning Sentinel. “She said, ‘I’m just getting around to writing. I imagine you have been anxiously waiting for a letter all week. I have no excuses, but that I just didn’t get to it and there are lots of things to tell you, too.’”

The letter contains the same irreverent humor MacMichael remembers from growing up with her aunt.

“We always have thought of our aunt as a strong woman with a mind of her own and with a way of saying what was on her mind, but often using a mix of humor to make it more palatable,” MacMichael shared.

I love lemon desserts and I love them cold. Think lemon squares, like this recipe, a tradition in Katie Couric’s family.

But I also love lemon in other sweet treats — like cookies! The juice and zest from fresh lemons gives these soft and chewy sugar cookies a refreshing twist that makes a perfect summertime snack.

Adding lemon zest enhances and brightens the flavor of the lemon juice. If you don’t already have a good microplane, invest in one and zesting will be a breeze.

After you make the cookie dough, scoop it into small balls and roll lightly in sugar before baking.

I loved these cookies just like this, but at the last minue decided to whip up a little buttercream to sandwich them together. They definitely don’t need it, though. They’re great on their own… simple and sweet.

Oscar Pistorius’s Grueling Testimony: Will Contradictions Doom Him?

04/16/2014 at 12:35 PM EDT

There was a barrage of questions. Followed by another. And another.

For five long days, prosecutor Gerrie Nel relentlessly hammered Oscar Pistorius with blistering questions. Nel – nicknamed “The Pitbull” for his tough reputation and courtroom style – confronted Pistorius with contradictions in his testimony, trying to get him to admit that he intentionally killed girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp after a heated argument.

“She was locked in the bathroom and you armed yourself with the sole purpose of shooting and killing her,” Nel challenged, causing the South African star to tremble as he fumbled for an answer. “Afterwards, you were overcome by what you’d done. That is true. Only because you intentioned to kill her. You realized that.”

At another point, Nel asked the Olympian who he thought was responsible for the incident. “We should blame somebody,” he sarcastically said. “Should we blame Reeva? Who should we blame for the Black Talon rounds that ripped through her body?”

The courtroom has sat in hushed silence throughout the gripping cross-examination. Pistorius, wearing a dark suit each day, often rubbed his temples and choked back tears as he testified. At his feet has been an ever-present vomit bucket.

With his testimony behind him, Pistorius faces an uphill battle for acquittal. Rather than setting the record straight, the Olympian raised even more questions about what really happened in the early morning hours of Valentine’s Day, 2013.

Was The Shooting Accidental?

For the first three weeks of trial, the defense has maintained that Pistorius intentionally shot through the bathroom door at someone he thought was an intruder. That seemed to change during Pistorius’s testimony, when he insisted that the shooting would have been an accident, even if he had shot an intruder.

“It was all an accident?” Nel asked incredulously.

“That’s correct,” responded Pistorious.

“Your defense has now changed from self-defense to involuntary action,” Nel told him. “You can only have one defense, not two.”

Pistorius looked agitated. “I didn’t intend to fire but I fired,” he said. “I pulled the trigger. My firearm was pointing to where I perceived the danger to be. It never crossed my mind that shooting into the toilet would kill someone.”

Why Did Pistorius Yell?

Pistorius claimed to have yelled at the intruder. “I screamed and said ‘get the f— out of my house,’ he testified before dissolving into tears.

Prosecutors believe he shouted those words – not at an intruder, but at Steenkamp. “She was in fear for her life and trying to get away,” said Nel. Noting Steenkamp’s jeans strewn on the bedroom floor, Nel alleged that she had tried to flee her boyfriend.

“It is the state’s case that the jeans were on the floor as Reeva wanted to leave that night,” he said. “You had had an argument.”

Did He Run To The Balcony To Seek Help?

During a police interview, Pistorius claimed to have run to the balcony to scream for help. Nel presented Pistorius with a photo of the bedroom. “What’s wrong with this picture?” he asked.

There was an awkward silence as Pistorius examined the photo, which showed a large tripod fan in front of the door.

“The fan would have blocked me from running out onto the balcony,” he said softly.

“I agree,” Nel shot back. “Because your version was a lie.”

Other Inconsistencies

Pistorius was confronted with several more inconsistencies during his testimony. After he stated that he thought he had seen Steenkamp in the bed before getting up, the prosecution asked how that was possible.

“The room was pitch black,” said Nel. “You couldn’t see a thing.”

Later, Pistorius testified that Steenkamp had last eaten at 7 p.m., more than eight hours before the shooting. An autopsy showed that she had eaten just two or three hours before her death. Pistorius then conceded that she might have gone downstairs and eaten while he was sleeping.

“By your own account, the burglar alarm was on,” said Nel. “It would have been triggered by her leaving the room. Your inconsistencies are devastating.”

A Bittersweet Valentine

The defense had one positive note as Pistorius wrapped up his harrowing week on the stand. After Nel contended that none of the text messages between Pistorius and Steenkamp included the phrase, “I love you,” Pistorius’s defense lawyers handed him a Valentine’s Day card that Steenkamp had written.

Pistorius read it aloud with a clear, loud voice. “Roses are red, violets are blue. I think today is a good day to tell you that I love you.”
