A man has been charged after breaking into Celine Dion's Montreal home and running a bath. According to police, 36-year-old Daniel Bedard jumped a fence to get onto the property and used a garage door opener in an unlocked vehicle to enter the house. Upon arrival, he raided the singer's refrigerator for pastries before heading to her bathroom to draw a bath. An alarm alerted police to the scene, who arrested him on the premises.

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
