Welcome to Fat Bear Week 2020! Katmai National Park and Preserve’s brown bears spent the summer gorging on 4,500-calorie salmon, and they've transformed into rotund giants, some over 1,000 pounds.

It's a particularly sensitive song about falling in love — a sharp departure from the action hero's otherwise tough exterior. The song premiered on The Kelly Clarkson Show, and in the introduction, Vin Diesel told Clarkson that this was his artistic expression in lieu of acting.  "You, since you won [American] Idol, and till today somehow have maintained your authenticity," Vin Diesel tells Clarkson from… [...]
