Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry officially announced their engagement earlier this month, and the actual proposal sounds like it was a doozy.


Perry stopped by the set of Jimmy Kimmel Live to dish on what it was like to be proposed to by Legolas himself.

Perry said the two went to dinner––and that she expected they'd head to an art show.

"But we pulled up to a helicopter," she said. She and Bloom boarded: There was champagne on hand for a toast.

"The box was in his pocket and he had written down everything he wanted to say in a note to divert -- he was gonna pull it out while I was reading it," she said.

Things went awry after Bloom tried to pull the tiny engagement ring box out of the even tinier pocket of his jacket. His elbow hit the champagne bottle in the process. It fell to the floor of the helicopter and shattered, sending shards of glass everywhere.

"And I'm like, 'No, I'm just reading the note. I know you're not doing anything,'" she said, saying that she was able to dismount from the helicopter and meet family members once they'd landed on a rooftop without further incident.

"My whole family was there, and all my friends... he did so well," she said lovingly.

You can watch Perry recall the memory below.

Take a look at that ring, by the way.

That story's adorable... and it's a pretty cute disaster. But love is love as they say.





Perry recalled that she and Bloom first fell in love after they bonded over an In-N-Out Burger at the Golden Globe Awards a few years ago.

"He stole one off of my table. I was sitting with Denzel Washington and he took it and I was like, 'Who...oh, you're so hot. Fine, take it,'" she said. "Then I saw him at a party and I was like, 'How are those onions resting on your molars?' He was like, 'I like you.' Then, you know, cut to!"

You never know, ladies and gents. The love of your life could be a burger snatcher. Get off Tinder right now and head to your nearest fast food restaurant.

Y'all know that one Hannah Montana song? “Everybody makes mistakes! Everybody has those days!" That's the song I sing to myself every time I accidentally burn myself while making ramen. It comforts me to know, however, that there are a lot of worse mistakes out there than some spilled ramen. Who knew?

When I was younger, it seemed every adult believed that you couldn't swim for several hours after eating. Why did they all believe this? I fought them on this all the time, by the way. I shouldn't have had to, just because I'd eaten some barbecue during a pool party. Guess what, though? That belief is unfounded.

As much as we're not supposed to feel satisfaction upon observing the struggles of other people, it can be hard to resist a silent, internal fist pump when some blunder occurs immediately after we tried to help the person prevent it.

One of the most upsetting aspects of the Covid-19 pandemic––which is saying a lot, frankly––is the number of people who have been so affected by misinformation and disinformation. You know the ones to which I refer: These are the people who are convinced the virus is a hoax despite the lives it's claimed and the devastation it has wrought on society at large. Disinformation kills––there are stories of people who remained convinced that Covid-19 is a hoax even while intubated in the ICU, even up to their last breath.

After Redditor asked the online community, "Doctors of Reddit, what happened when you diagnosed a Covid-19 denier with Covid-19?" doctors and other medical professionals shared these rather unsettling stories.
