Watch a Guy Build an Iron Throne Out of Carrots for His Pet Rabbit

"The carrot throne is mine by rights"

The ultimate Game of Thrones fan and animal lover has built a replica of the series’ Iron Throne entirely out of shredded carrots for his Brooklyn, N.Y.-based rabbit named Wallace — also known as “Wallace the Mad King” on YouTube.

Did the rabbit eat all of the veggies? In a Reddit thread, the owner admits “I ate most of it.”

In the user’s last viral stunt, he taught the rabbit how to fetch him a beer.

Season 5 of the hit HBO show premieres April 12.

Watch Ed Sheeran Surprise a Couple at Their Wedding

And then sing "Thinking Out Loud" for their first dance

Ed Sheeran continued his streak of doing adorable and sweet things by making a surprise appearance at an Australian couple’s wedding.

The couple, Kya and Matt, had won an all-expenses-paid wedding from Sydney’s KIIS FM after Matt called in to explain the couple’s situation. They’d been planning to get married, but after Kya’s mother took her own life they had to postpone the event. Since then, they’ve been struggling to get enough money together.

The wedding KIIS FM planned for Kya and Matt included a special appearance by Ed Sheeran, who’s currently touring in Australia. He surprised the couple and then sang his hit “Thinking Out Loud” for their first dance.

It was all really adorable and then Ed wished them well with some parting words: “Make lots of babies tonight.”

What If Michael Bay Directed Girls?

Michael Bay and HBO’s Girls are about as dissimilar and themes as two entertainment brands can be. The director shoots for high-concept flicks with outlandish stunts and insane plots, while Lena Dunham’s show aims for low-key characterization and development. Whenever the two collided in a mash-up, real or otherwise, one’s sensibilities would be crushed for comedic effect, skewering the other.

This is exactly what happened when YouTuber Alberto Belli released the video “What if Michael Bay directed HBO’s ‘Girls’ ” on Wednesday. Hannah, Marnie, Jessa, and Shoshanna are all shown in the parody, accompanied by regular barbs about their body and attractiveness. To make it a genuine Bay parody, oversaturated scenes, jets, and—naturally—explosions appear.

This U.S. Student’s Sneak Peeks of Her Enchanted Life at Cambridge University Have Got Her 300,000 Instagram Followers

“In the States we don’t have castles"

Caroline Calloway is living a privileged life and getting a huge following on Instagram in the process.

The 23-year-old New Yorker is currently studying art history at the prestigious Cambridge University in Britain, and her awestruck musings about the iconic institution, coupled with photographs of her experiences there, have captured the imaginations of over 302,000 people on the photo-sharing social network.

“I love Cambridge so much, in the evangelical way only an immigrant can,” one of her posts reads. “In the States we don’t have castles – it’s literally like if one part of one old building in Cambridge was transplanted to America it would be our greatest national treasure.”

Much like Ring Pops and disposable razors, memories deteriorate with use. It’s science. According to a study by Northwestern University, every time we access a memory we tamper with it, editing the past with our feelings in the present. Or to put it like this: the only way to preserve our most precious memories is to forget them. Sometimes I worry that I’ve revisited my first weeks at Cambridge so often that the real story is too damaged to tell with accuracy—that something about the star-struck, devastated, bewildered way I felt when I arrived has been permanently paved over. I know now, for example, that Oscar and I will end up dating. We will spend Valentine’s Day in Paris and weekends at castles and untold hours of our lives watching movies on laptops. Cambridge will not always be a beautiful but hellish maze. I will, eventually, learn the street names; the college names; where to buy falafel at 3 AM (Gardies). I will even become friends with Josh after many upbeat and infrequent lunches in Manhattan. Once—and only once—Josh will say the name Oscar by mistake. “George,” I will correct him quickly. “The royal baby’s name is George.” But in the moment that this photo happened I couldn’t have imagined what was to come. And in fact, at this moment now, it’s hard for me to imagine how this photo felt. During the past week I’ve asked so many friends (spoiler alert: I make friends) what Cambridge was like at first and they all say it was a whirlwind. They cite Bambi-like awe. And sure, I get it. But when I look at this photo I see a staged kind of fun. Where is my jacket? Did I throw it out of frame, but keep the champagne? Why am I looking off into the distance? I had definitely asked for this photo to be taken. What I’m trying to say is that wonder can often run parallel to loneliness. And while the emotional sum of my first weeks at Cambridge would eventually add up to happiness, this photo was probably not the extraordinary moment it looks like. Sneaking past the porters wasn’t actually that hard. Conversation that afternoon with Oscar lulled. Things were real. And they would only get surreal-er. To Be Continued… #adventuregrams

And Calloway likes the castles. A lot. “But here’s the crazy thing about Cambridge. There’s not just one castle,” she writes. “There’s not even ten castles. Cambridge is a city of castles.”

Oscar’s note was kind but to the point: “I’m sorry I wasn’t here when you woke up, but I have polo practice at 13:00. Would you like to come to John’s formal tonight? Text me. O” John? I thought. Who the hell is John? But I got out of bed anyways and began rifling through my half-packed suitcases for a charger—I didn’t have to check my phone it to know it would be dead. Like winning an Olympic gold medal or owning a lock of James Franco’s hair, listening to Harry Potter audiobooks on repeat all night has a price. And that price is determination. Dedication, Sometimes bitcoin. I dumped the contents of two carry-ons next to my open suitcases and studied the floor. Although I had had over an hour to unpack yesterday between lunch and Oscar’s knock, I had focused on making my dorm-room feel like home rather than actually moving in. Which meant that instead of putting socks away in drawers, I had spent the hour tacking up vintage maps of Greenwich Village, photos of Washington Square Park in the snow, bunting made from mini-British flags. From the waist up my room looked like a cheerful teenage sit-com set, the bedroom of a girl from New York very obviously abroad. From the waist down it looked like the murder scene of a mime. At some point over the summer I had also decided sort of inexplicably that Cambridge students dress like mournful 18th century school-children and had packed only my most boring, most monochrome clothes. I found my charger under a black turtleneck and a multi-volume biography about Cézanne. However, it turned out that I still had neither UK adapter nor cell service. Yesterday had been so skewed by break-up-related anxieties I hadn’t even given much thought to my Precious I mean iPhone. But today I felt much clearer, lighter, eager to check Instagram. I threw on a black turtleneck, black boots, and my mini-skirt from yesterday and set off into town.

She also loves the fine dining and the zillion pieces of cutlery she’s apparently still figuring out how to use.

I say it all the time about appetizers and only appetizers—it’s not the size that counts. It’s the way they’re served in wizardly castles. But before we get any deeper into the oblique Harry Potter references, I feel obligated clarify Cambridge University isn’t Hogwarts. There’s no House Cup, for example, and the university has many more than one Hall and only a few of them Great. Also I’m a lot smarter and better at magic than Hermione, so as you can see the comparison has its flaws. But when the gong rung out and a hundred black-robed students got to their feet, Oscar whispered, “Look at the High Table,” and I half-expected him to point out our new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher or to make an observation like “McGonagall’s missing,” which would later be a clue. However, part of growing up is learning that not all school years can have the narrative arch of The Half-Blood Prince. And so while a student read grace in Latin, a group of professors processed solemnly in and sat down at a table surrounded by oil paintings in large gilt frames. Grace ended and we sat down. With military precision, a fleet of waiters in tuxedo-like uniforms swept into the Great Hall and began serving appetizers and white wine because, YES. Fellow Americans, you heard that right: In England, colleges don’t get you in trouble for drinking, THEY PROVIDE THE BOOZE. And not just any old Natty Light, as the menus scattered around the table explained. This was a vintage Pinot Grigio selected by the chef to complement the sweetness of the pickled peaches in tonight’s goat cheese salad as well as the tartness of the homemade raspberry compote—one of three courses being served tonight, each with its own pairing of wine. As I stared at the three forks, two knives, and one spoon in front of me, I leaned over to Oscar and asked, “Is dinner in the cafeteria always like this?” He grinned. “Welcome to Cambridge, Miss Calloway." It wasn't Hogwarts, but it would do.

And the halls where that food and wine (yes, wine, as an American she’s thrilled to find out her college actually provides alcohol to students) is served, as well as much of the rest of Cambridge, have her constantly making Harry Potter analogies. To be fair, they do have to wear robes, and there’s an admittedly photoshopped picture of her best friend who kind of looks like a member of the Weasley family.

Of all that Harry, Hermione, and—let’s be real, Ron—Hedwig has done for me, one of the most important was that seeing Oscar in black robes made an effective distraction. “Ohmygod.” I said sitting up bed, mascara-stained Kleenexes fluttering to the floor. I shut my laptop that had been mournful acoustic music on loop. “You’re Draco.” Now before I tell you how Oscar responded: a quick confession. Of the gazillion boys I’ve dated (fine, three), none has ever read Harry Potter. Which is a problem only ALWAYS, but that’s love, you guys. It makes you dizzy, short-of-breath, tired… No, wait. That’s asthma. Love makes you blind. Like a giant torture device that gauges out both your—nope, nope. That’s not it. Love IS blind. Blind like Aragog. (Google it, ex-boyfriends.) The point is that we must neither hold it against Oscar that he replied to my Draco comment with, “I’m Oscar,” nor that he understood my emotional 180 not at all. Without even acknowledging his concerned glances towards my vase full of red wine, I leapt out of bed saying, “Ten minutes and I’ll be ready.” “Lovely,” he replied, snapping his gaze up from the floor. “Do you need to borrow robes or— ” I pointed to the Ryder and Amies bag in the corner.“Black Undergraduate Robes? Check. AWWW YEA, CAMBRIDGE.” Oscar responded to the gang signs I threw at him with a curt bow and said, “Right then. Meet you outside in ten, Miss Calloway. As we walked through castles (!) into something called The Great Hall (!!) and sat down at a long table crowded with more students in black robes (!!!), Oscar slid a piece of crumpled paper into my hands. “Hold on to this. It’s your ticket for tonight.” It was also as close to a letter from Hogwarts as I would ever get and perhaps the only thing the books could never give me. Suddenly a gong rung out and everyone stoop up. To Be Continued @din_fru #adventuregrams PS – If you like reading my stories about last fall on Instagram, then come join the Facebook party!

My own mother once said it’s a miracle I wasn’t lured into a paneled van as a child and, quite frankly, I agree. The only thing I love more than free candy is talking to strangers and I’ve never been good at playing hard to get. Not with boys. Not with kidnappers. Not even when it comes to playing tag. But my golden-retriever friendliness was extra apparent the afternoon I met my future best friend, Maria. But now I’m getting ahead of myself. Let’s start where we left off, surrounded by Cambridge University’s most beautiful people, all of whom clearly belonged in Lecture Room 2 but me. As I tried to stay a mini anxiety attack by taking notes, Professor Massing paced merrily behind the lectern, offering advice that seemed as applicable to Art History as cattle ranching in Texas or how not to survive a tsunami. “Never be afraid to get closer.” “Take zee time to question your instincts.” “I recommend zat first you become fluent een Spanish.” I wrote down everything, complete with his quirky pan-European accent. But savvy Instagram blogger that I am, what I didn’t record with either or pictures or notes was when Professor Massing excused us for lunch and Maria and I found ourselves shuffling side by side to the door and walking into town. However I’ve photo-shopped a dramatic reenactment that turned out, in a way, even more accurate than what happened. Of course IRL we weren’t in ball gowns, but my facial expression and weird grip on Maria’s neck is spot-on in terms of what I restrained myself from doing at the time. Had there been a camera, 100% chance I would’ve looked into like so and announced my intentions like a villain: Maria and I WILL be best friends. Instead I said this to Maria, who laughed. “Let’s,” she said in her proper British accent. “Let’s be best friends.” It was one of the luckiest things that would happen during my first year Cambridge and not just because Maria didn’t own a paneled van.

And some of her photos can’t be called anything but magical.

The phrase ‘long story short’—much like super powers and kazoos—is difficult to use responsibly. For example: “Well, Sue and I had breakfast on the patio, went to yoga, and long story short I am no longer welcome in Mexico.” And so as I fast-forward our story from dinner-time to the next morning I’ll try not to narrate too jerkily, although the speed of the story isn’t entirely up to me. You see, there’s a gap in my iPhotos Library that lasts from when the appetizers were served till when I woke up at the crack of 10 AM and is, coincidentally, exactly the size of the hole in my heart. Or as I explained to the waiter who confiscated my iPhone in the Great Hall, no amount of pictures from the Internet will ever bring back the memories I could’ve grammed. But apparently taking photos at formal dinners is “against Cambridge rules” and the waiter had already asked me to stop “four times.” And so the full account of my second non-date with Oscar will have to wait for my book. Which no one has agreed to publish yet, but optimism. By the time dinner was over I was drunk. Not Jersey-Shore-bad-decisions drunk, but on a scale of 1 to actual baby-like wonder, I was a solid “Is it just me or are trees, like, better in England?” I also asked Oscar a lot of the questions that I had felt like too much of a fresher to bring up earlier and got some much needed answers regarding when to wear robes (dinners, ceremonies, never to class) and a crash course on Cambridge slang (“John’s formal” = formal dinner at the college called St John’s). It was these sort of practical night-before-the-first-day-of-school things that we talked about as we wound our way back through dark castles and even darker gardens to our dorm. And as we stepped into the elevator I was lost in thought about what Oscar had just said about checking out library books, so you can imagine how surprised I was, long story short, when he leaned in to kiss me.

Before I say what I’m going to say next, it’s important to remember that on that autumn afternoon with Oscar and the weeping willow, I was still very much in love with Josh. And so when Oscar said, “And that’s where I kissed this American girl…” I didn’t fire back with a flirty quip or laugh it off with the non-deranged human-laughter I reserve for just such occasions. Instead I stopped in the middle of the beautiful, stone, willow-ringed bridge and said flatly, “Oscar. I just broke up with my boyfriend.” He was unphased. “Miss Calloway, if you wanted me to know you were single—” “No,” I said more urgently. “You don’t understand. We, like, JUST broke up. Like, ten hours ago.” For a moment we were both silent. Oscar leaned forward on his elbows against the bridge and looked out at the river and the other bridges beyond. Without turning his head he said simply, slowly, “I’m sorry.” I sighed and leaned against the bridge as well, careful to leave a space between his shoulder and mine. “I still really love him, you know. Josh. After Cambridge I’m going to move back to New York and we’ll be together again, forever.” A group of students in black robes walked by talking animatedly about a professor in a variety of accents. Once it was quiet again Oscar rolled towards me so that his back was facing the river and our shoulders were touching. I stared straight ahead. “Those plans never work,” he said matter-of-factly. “But… I hope for your sake that you get what you want.” “Thank you.” I said primly. “And what I want is Josh.” “Aha!” He cried suddenly, striding away from the bridge with renewed confidence. “That’s what you THINK you want! But you don’t know anything about me yet.” He flashed a smile over his shoulder and gestured towards the riverbank. “Come. Sit. Let’s see how quickly I can change your mind.” To Be Continued @din_fru #adventuregrams PS – Meanwhile IRL… Oscar is building his little sister a raft today! The photos are all on my Facebook page!

16 Bizarre Fast Food Items That Are Ridiculously Over the Top

The biscuit taco has nothing on these strange food fusions

Taco Bell announced it was retiring the beloved waffle taco this week, but in the same breath revealed a new piece of fast-food fusion: the biscuit taco. But America isn’t the only country trying its hand at fast food experimentation — strange food mash-ups premiere regularly around the world. But not every attempt at food fusion is successful. Here are 16 different international fast food items that don’t just cross the line — they race across it at a breakneck speed.

  • Pizza Hut Hong Kong: Flying Fish Roe Salmon Cream Cheese Pizza

    If you’re a crust person, get ready for an unexpected surprise. One bite of this pizza’s edge will unleash an oozing cream cheese and fish egg combination in your mouth. The pie itself is topped with scallops, crayfish, clams and shrimp. You know, just your usual pizza toppings.

  • Burger King Japan: Windows 7 Whopper

    bk_poster091014_01
    Burger King Japan

    For the launch of Windows 7 in 2009, Burger King offered a Whopper with 7 patties, which is just too many.

     

  • Pizza Hut Middle East: Crown Crust Pizza

    For some inexplicable reason, Pizza Hut Middle East stuffed mini cheeseburgers and chicken tenders into the crust of its Crown Crust pizza.

  • Pizza Hut Australia: Hot Dog Stuffed Crust Pizza

    Burgers aren’t the only sandwiches to get stuffed into a pizza crust. Pizza Hut Australia’s hot dog stuffed crust is exactly what it sounds like and comes with free mustard and ketchup drizzle.

  • Japan: Kit-Kat Sandwich

    First Kitchen

    Many people love Kit-Kats, but the candy bar looks slightly unappealing when garnished with whipped cream and orange peel between two slices of white bread. Japanese fast food chain First Kitchen offers the strange creation for a mere 220 yen ($1.81).

  • McDonald’s Japan: Gracoro Burger

    McDonald's Japan

    During select winters at certain locations, McDonald’s has been known to roll out the McRib in America. During some seasons in Japan, McDonald’s offers the Gracoro Burger — which has a breadcrumb-crusted patty made out of macaroni, shrimp and a creamy white sauce.

  • Pizza Hut Korea: Star Edge Pizza

    Real as it is terrifying, this pizza comes topped with surf and turf (shrimp, calamari, bacon, steak and sausage) and is surrounded by a crust packed with dessert creams (cranberry or cinnamon apple nut and cream cheese filling).

  • Burger King Japan: Kuro Pearl Burger

    Kuro Burger
    Burger King Japan

    Burger King went to the dark side. This curious creation comes with black cheese (dyed with bamboo charcoal) and a black bun. You’ll also find squid ink in the onion-garlic sauce.

     

  • Pizza Hut Singapore: Double Decker Pizza

    At first, a double decker pizza sounds like just the right amount of decadence, but after reading the ingredient list, you’ll realize no one needs a second layer of turkey and ham rolls topped with mango mayonnaise.

  • Wendy’s Japan:Premium Lobster & Caviar Burger

    Wendy's Japan

    In 2012, Wendy’s premiered this luxe burger, which comes complete with lobster claw and a sprinkle of caviar.

  • McDonald’s Switzerland: McGrillschnägg

    Pig on pig: The Swiss “burger” consists of a curiously shaped pork sausage curled on a potato pancake patty and topped with bacon.

  • KFC Korea: Zinger Double Down

    Fried chicken are the new buns?

    As a KFC Korea spokesperson told Bloomberg, “The new Zinger Double Down King was created for consumers with a hearty appetite and a fondness for meat.” The promotional menu item, currently available in Korea, includes a beef patty topped with bacon, barbecue and white pepper sauces that is sandwiched between two fried chicken fillets.

  • KFC Philippines: Double Down Dog

    In January 2015, customers clamored to get their hands on this special promotion, which is basically just a hot dog wrapped in a fried chicken bun.

  • Wendy’s Japan: Foie Gras Burger

    Wendy's Japan

    For just $16, customers could indulge in a square burger topped with goose liver and truffles. “We think the fast-food market here is ready for something different,” CEO Ernest Higa told Bloomberg in 2011.

  • Dunkin’ Donuts China: Dried Pork and Seaweed Donut

    Dunkin' Donuts China

    This delightful creation proves you don’t have to choose between sweet and savory.

  • Burger King Japan: Pumpkin Bomb

    Burger King Japan

    America isn’t the only country that gets into seasonal pumpkin spice blends. The Pumpkin Bomb comes stuffed with bacon, a nut sauce and 10 slices of fried kabocha pumpkin.

Watch a Pilot Propose to His Flight Attendant Girlfriend at 34,000 Feet

A cheeseburger started it all

Alaskan Airlines flight attendant Brandy Hollenbeck had flown from Seattle to Juneau many times before, but the March 18 flight turned out to be a surprising one for her and everyone else onboard.

Unbeknownst to Hollenbeck, her pilot boyfriend, Eric Greener, was hiding in the flight deck jump seat. And once the flight was in the air, Greener began addressing the cabin over the intercom.

“I happened to meet this beautiful blond flight attendant, who was sitting there … chowing down on a double cheeseburger,” Greener recalled. “All I could think, folks, was, ‘My gosh, a flight attendant who has the courage to eat a cheeseburger in the terminal is a woman to know.’ ”

“We hit it off, I got her number and I met the woman of my dreams at 34,000 feet. So I figure it’s time to continue our lives at 34,000 feet,” he said before appearing at the end of the aisle.

He got a definite yes, by the way, in case you can’t tell by the couple’s beaming faces or the applause from throughout the cabin.

Hollenbeck was quoted by the official airline blog as being surprised by the proposal to the point that she continued serving coffee to passengers through most of it. “At one point I thought, ‘Someone up there is telling my love story!’ ” she said.

Starbucks’ Birthday Cake Frappuccino Will Bring You Many Happy Returns

Starbucks

Tastes even better with candles in it

It’s a scientific fact—at least when it comes to dessert—that the only thing better than chocolate is birthday cake.

Luckily, Starbucks seems to be on top of this important life-truth.

The coffee chain is celebrating the 20th birthday of its signature frozen drink with a new Birthday Cake Frappuccino. The limited-edition drink will only be available in stores for 5 days, from March 26-30.

So how do you make a birthday cake-flavored Frap? (No, not with Funfetti.) Starbucks’ vanilla bean and hazelnut flavors are blended together and then topped with a raspberry-infused (read: pink!) whipped cream.

The first Frappuccinos debuted in 1995, and were only available in coffee and mocha flavors. Now, the company boasts a history of fancy Fraps: a blue Seattle Seahawks flavor for the 2015 Super Bowl; a bright green Franken Frappuccino for Halloween; and a frozen version of its newest holiday flavor, the tastes-like-a-cup-of-Christmas-carols Chestnut Praline.

Fingers crossed for a happy hour appropriate, boozy birthday cake flavor when the Frappuccino turns 21 next year.

A time-lapse video marks the 60th anniversary of the park

To get ready for its 60th anniversary celebration in July, Disney has released a time-lapse video which shows the park’s construction in the 1950s. (It officially opened on July 17, 1955.)

The video shows several bare-bones structures becoming full-fledged houses and castles — and eventually shows the completed park swarming with visitors.

This video is just a small part of Disneyland’s 60-year anniversary celebration, which will also include keeping the park open for a full 24 hours.

Watch a Passover-Themed A Cappella Parody of ‘Uptown Funk’

It's pitch perfect

Grab the popcorn — or matzo! On Wednesday, Jewish a cappella group Six13 debuted its Passover-themed parody of “Uptown Funk,” the hit Mark Ronson song featuring Bruno Mars, exclusively on Time.com.

Sample lyrics:

This is that age old
Passover tale that’s retold
This is what we listen to
While eatin’ through those matzah pieces
Climbin’, tilin’
Buildin’ Egyptian cities
We worked hard and prayed to G-d
And He freed us all, so get ready
It’s Pesach! (Oh man)
There was a burning bush on fire, man
It’s Pesach! (Big fans)
Cause the Pharaoh drew God’s ire, man
It’s Pesach! (Change pans)
So he took us out of Mitz-ra-yim
It’s Pesach! (Let’s scram)
So it’s bad if you have chametz (Clean it up)
Kids, singin ma nishtana (3x)
Cause Uptown Passover’s comin’ to ya (3x)
Seder tonight and we saved you a spot
Don’t be slavin’, just nosh (6x)

Six13 is the same group behind the viral Hanukkah parody of Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off.”

The spoof is so catchy that you will probably get the lyrics stuck in your head and sing them all through Passover, which begins the evening of April 3 and ends the evening of April 11.

TIME 10 Questions

Katie Couric on A New Documentary, Her New Job and the NBC Rumor Mill

The anchor and activist answers 10 questions in this week's TIME

How did the nonprofit you co-founded, the Entertainment Industry Foundation’s Stand Up to Cancer, get involved with the PBS series premiering March 30?

Cancer has been life-­shattering for me on more than one occasion. My husband died of colon cancer in 1998. My sister died of pancreatic cancer three years later. Laura Ziskin, one of my co-founders, died of breast cancer. She’d read an advance copy of Dr. Siddartha Mukherjee’s The Emperor of All Maladies and immediately said, “We have to turn this into a documentary.”

Many people touched by cancer get overwhelmed or tune it out. Why do you return to it again and again?

Everyone has a different reaction to cancer. My husband, who was one of the most intellectually curious people I’d ever met, didn’t want to know much. As someone who loved him, my impulse was to protect him. My journalistic instincts also kicked in. I learned everything I could. After he died, I realized I had this built-in bully pulpit and it would be almost criminal not to share what I’d learned.

Do you do anything weird to stay healthy?

I wish I drank, like, copious amounts of green tea. I’m just not one of those maniacally healthy people. I try to say no to french fries. I’m very good about getting screened, about getting mammograms.

You’re Yahoo’s Global News Anchor now. What have you learned from Marissa Mayer?

I think you learn to keep your blinders on, focus on the job at hand and ignore the noise. Marissa is very good at that.

What makes a good anchor?

Someone who’s experienced and who has credibility. When I came to CBS, people said I lacked gravitas, which was frankly an unfair assessment. I had probably done more interviews than most of the sitting anchors, and certainly my share of hard-hitting ones. I always said “gravitas” was Latin for “testicles.”

After the Brian Williams ordeal, some people said anchors face pressure to get in the trenches or be part of the story. Did you ever feel that?

It’s a very hard balance, because there are stories that warrant the anchor being there, but you also have to be cognizant that it not be as window dressing. You have reporters out there, day in and day out, covering a story, and then you have an anchor parachute in. You hope whoever that anchor is brings something to the table.

Every couple of months, there’s a new rumor you’re going back to NBC—

I know, I know. It’s very disconcerting and bizarre to be the focus of stories that just have no factual basis.

So is there any truth to it?

No. No, no. Listen, I love NBC and I spent 15 wonderful years there. I still have a lot of friends there. But right now I’m really excited about the work I’m doing at Yahoo. It’s wonderful to feel entrepreneurial. As a friend of mine said, it’s great to be part of a place that’s expanding optimistically instead of managing decline.

Who’s your dream interview right now?

Pope Francis. He’s such a transformative figure. He has expressed some attitudes of tolerance and compassion and some Jesuit values that I really admire.

Gossip sites ran some photos of you and your husband in swimsuits recently. How did that feel?

Oh my God, that was awful. I took some time off with my husband, and I look out and there are three big, huge cameras. I’m a 58-year-old woman. My heart sank. I guess it’s part of the fine print of having a public job, but I hope women out there everywhere felt my pain.

This interview appears in the April 6, 2015, issue of TIME.
