Kate Hudson's Shirtless Family Photo, Melissa McCarthy's MTV Award, and Much, Much More

Here's what's happening:

• The other day on Instagram, "Mother's Day" actress Kate Hudson shared a shirtless group photo from what looks to be a ski trip with her family and friends. (Kate's the one in white). Either that, or Kate has finally decided to star in a belated sequel to the raunchy 1990 comedy "Ski School" that we rented from Blockbuster that one time.

• Speaking of ladies named Kate, we recently asked Sports Illustrated swimsuit siren Kate Bock about the craziest thing she's done for a shoot. Watch the clip below to find out what it was (or ), then judge for yourself if it's crazier than going shirtless on a ski slope.

• MTV has announced that Melissa McCarthy, of such films as "Bridesmaids," "The Heat" and "The Boss," will be honored with the Comedic Genius Award at this year's MTV Movie Awards. Sadly, though, this means that Tim Conway will have to wait yet another year to be recognized for his hilarious work as Dorf.

• Just one day after his sister Paris debuted her new wrist tattoo, Michael Jackson's eldest child Prince Michael revealed that he, too, had gotten a tattoo (depicting the Egyptian god Anubis) from the very same tattoo parlor (below). So now it's your turn, 14-year-old Blanket!

• According to a source for Us Weekly, Miley Cyrus and Adam Levine "totally butted heads" during the filming of Miley's guest-mentoring gig on "The Voice." That said, it's a good thing she'll be joining Adam as a permanent fixture on the coaching panel next season!

• Perhaps inspired by the success of FX's "American Crime Story: The People vs. O.J. Simpson," NBC is reportedly developing their own true crime anthology series which will explore the Menendez Brothers murders. However, it remains to be seen whether NBC, too, will somehow try to shoehorn the Kardashians into the plot.

• The other day on Instagram, Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Irina Shayk treated her followers to a lacy lingerie photo from — what we assume — is an upcoming underwear campaign (below). Or, perhaps it's just an extremely convincing ad for blue shag carpeting. in any case, we're not complaining.

• Country music legend Merle Haggard, probably best known for his 1969 hit "Okie From Muskogee," passed away on Wednesday (which also happened to be his birthday) due to complications of pneumonia. He was 79, and damned if he wasn't belting out his music until the very end:

• John Stamos, Rebel Wilson and Sara Bareilles (among other celebs) are planning to stage a live version of "The Little Mermaid" at the Hollywood Bowl, in which they'll sing the film's soundtrack while the movie is projected behind them. So it's kinda like those midnight screenings of "Rocky Horror," but with noticeably less talk of orgies.

• And finally, Khloe Kardashian and the FYI Network have made the mutual decision to cancel "Kocktails With Khloe," reportedly because Kardashian was more interested in "other jobs." We can't imagine why, though. If we landed a gig that required us to get drunk with our own friends, we don't think we'd ever retire.
