SHAQ PAYS FOR A RANDOM GUY'S ENGAGEMENT RING

Just when you think you can’t love Shaquille O’Neal any more, you hear this. He was in an Atlanta Zales jewelry store when he noticed a young man buying an engagement ring 

Shaq overheard the unidentified man asking how much his balance payoff was. That’s when he walked up to the register, whipped out his card, and paid for the ring himself. He told the guy, “Tell your girlfriend I got it.” 

The best part is that the NBA legend wasn’t doing it for kudos. He told his “NBA on TNT” co-hosts that he just wants to make people happy. “Whenever I leave the house, I just try and do a good deed,” he added. Check out the encounter HERE.

TIGER WOODS WAS GOING NEARLY 90MPH BEFORE CRASH

High, unsafe speed is the cause of Tiger Woods' crash in February. Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva says Woods hit a median going about 85-miles-per-hour and then hit the curb on the opposite side of the road going about 75-miles-per hour. The posted speed limit on this part of the road was 45.

On top of that, the vehicle's black box data shows that Woods put his foot on the gas instead of the brake as the crash occurred. This leads investigators to believe that Woods mistakenly put his foot on the gas instead of the brake as he tried to correct during the crash.

And here’s where there’s blowback. While the sheriff's office says there were no signs of impairment (yay) Villanueva confirms that Woods will not be cited for speeding or anything else. He also maintains that Woods hasn’t received any special treatment. This as it’s been confirmed that investigators didn’t seek search warrants for the Wood’s blood samples, which could have been screened for drugs or alcohol, or his cellphone.

TAYLOR SWIFT DROPS NEW SONG, FANS THINK IT'S ABOUT JOE JONAS

Taylor Swift is set to drop “Fearless (Taylor’s Version)” tomorrow, but she gave fans another taste of it yesterday, dropping the “From The Vault” song “Mr. Perfectly Fine (Taylor's Version)." 

“Me in 2020: life is chill, writing songs based in fiction to avoid drama, feeling pretty grown up,” she tweeted to announce the song. “My 2008 music from the vault, in a goblin voice: “REELEEEEEEASE MR PERFECTLY FIIIIIIINE."Check it out to the right.

Not long after the release fans started speculating about who the tune was about, with the consensus guessing Joe Jonas, who Taylor dated in 2008.

But if the song is about Joe, that was in the past, because Taylor, Joe and his wife Sophie Turner are all friends. In fact, Sophie revealed on social media that she was listening to the song, commenting, “it’s not NOT a Bop,” to which Taylor replied, “forever bending the knee for the queen of the north,” a reference to Sophie’s “Game of Thrones” character.
