Jerry Sandusky is sentenced and the presidential candidates campaign across the country preparing for their next debate, here's Tuesday's list of trending topics on "The Pulse".
Gaga's Perfume Debut
Lady Gaga debuts her latest perfume at luxury department store Harrods in London. Her "little monsters" showing their support as they chanted her praises, anxiously waiting to snap a picture with the pop star. A group of 75 of her devoted fans also had the chance to hang out with her at an exclusive tea party. Lady Gaga's next album is expected to come out by early 2013. Until then, her U.S. concert dates for "Born This Way" are entirely sold out.
Devito and Perlman Split
A longtime hollywood union goes sour. Danny Devito and Rhea Perlman have reportedly separated after 30 years together. The couple married in 1982 after meeting at a broadway play Devito was in. Together, the two founded Jersey Films, a production company which made movies including "Pulp Fiction" and "Garden State". They have three grown children.
Jerry Sandusky Sentenced
After a lengthy trial, Jerry Sandusky has been sentenced to 30 to 60 years in prison. Sandusky spoke for thirteen minutes, reading from a statement he finished writing late last night, saying he did not commit the crimes. The judge told Sandusky that his crimes are not just what he did to the victim's bodies, but to their souls. Sandusky's defense attorney set the grounds for appeal, saying an acquittal was possible if he'd had more time to prepare.
Van Der Sloot Expecting?
Locked up on a 28-year sentence, 28-year-old Joran Van der Sloot is telling a Dutch newspaper that he's going to be a father. Suspected in the 2005 disappearance of Natalee Holloway in Aruba, Van Der Sloot was later convicted of killing a 21-year-old in Peru in 2010. His attorney says the prison has the alleged mother registered as Van Der Sloot's girlfriend and the two have conjugal visits, though he would not confirm the pregnancy.
The Race for the White House
President Obama and Mitt Romney are on opposite sides of the country offering up competing visions on foreign policy. Mitt Romney attacked the president's leadership during a speech at the Virginia Military Academy, saying the president's hope for the middle east is not a policy. While raising money in California Sunday, President Obama moved foreign policy to the top of his remarks, saying he made good on his promises to end the wars in Iraq and is doing the same in Afghanistan. Two weeks from Tuesday, the two candidates debate foreign policy. And on Thursday, the vice presidential candidates have their one and only showdown.
