Today is: The birthday of many musical geniuses. Hitmaker and producer Timbaland was born on March 10, 1972. American Idol winner, Carrie Underwood, and soulful singer, Robin Thicke also call the day their birthdays (in 1983 and 1977 respectively).

P.S. Today is also the birthday of the man, the myth and the legend, Chuck Norris (1940).

“The People v. O.J. Simpson” has become must-see television. This week, the miniseries chronicling the trial of Simpson gave an award-worthy performance in which an entire episode detailed the abysmal treatment of Marcia Clark (Sarah Paulson) during the trail. The show airs at 10 p.m. on Tuesdays.

Music: 

Late Friday evening, fans got a surprise release from King Kendrick, in part due to another king. Following Kendrick’s Grammy performance, NBA star, Lebron James tweeted at Kendrick’s record label CEO, Anthony Tiffith, “you have to release those untitled tracks asap!!!” A week later, we now have "untitled unmastered." The Top Dawg Entertainment CEO simply said, "Thank @KingJames for this."

Paris Fashion Week is over just as quickly as it started, however, street style in the world's fashion capital never goes unnoticed. Striking graphic pieces from OFF WHITE, UNDERCOVER, Gucci, and, of course, high-end fashion pieces graced the streets of Paris during the week.      FOR THE GALLERY

The rabbit invasion came to an end in the District. Sunday marked the last day people could visit the giant cubes of the invasive creatures that had lit up the Navy Yard since Feb. 20.

Artist Amanda Parer is from Australia where rabbit population devastated the environment. FOR A LOOK AT THE EVENT

This Saturday marks the debut of "Cocktail Magic" in the District. "Top quality cocktails, WTF illusions, tasty bites, lively beats and a crowd ready to get down. You could spend your free time tracking down the best bartenders in the game but, instead, get ‘em all wrapped up in one gloriously badass party," Cocktail Magic's website says. Tickets for this event go for upwards of $100, and a portion of the proceeds goes to the Well Dunn Foundation. 

Politics:

Wednesday night Hilary Clinton and Bernie Sanders argued to win over Floridians in their final scheduled debate.
