Watch world leaders bust a move

Prince Charles is on a tour of the Middle East this week and on Wednesday, he attended a cultural festival in Saudi Arabia.

During the ceremony, he wore robes and carried a sword as he took part in a traditional dance.

Surely, he's not the only dancing dignitary busting a move.

CNN's Erin Burnett takes a look at world leaders who wanted to bust a move on the dance floor.

Actress Elaine Stritch adds to a long list of "F-bombs" on TV

You can't compliment Elaine Stritch on her anything-goes attitude and expect her not to take advantage of it.

On the "Today" show Tuesday, Stritch let a curse word slip while she was speaking with Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford , and didn't seem to have an ounce of regret.

The 89-year-old actress, who's won hearts everywhere from the stage to "The Cosby Show" to "30 Rock," was on the morning program to promote her documentary, "Just Shoot Me."

"Elaine, you are so beloved as much for your work, of course, but for your mouth," Gifford said. "You say whatever you want to say. When did that all happen?"

As it turned out, it "happened" right there on live TV.

"Thank God it hasn't been passed on television. If you just say things naturally, it's fine," Stritch said. "They just think and f***."

J.K. Rowling to release new book under alter ego, Robert Galbraith

Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling is ready to release a new book.

"The Silkworm" is the author's second crime thriller, expected to hit shelves in June.

Of course, if you're interested in buying it, make sure you look for the title and not J.K. Rowling's name because you won't find it.

Once again, Rowling is publishing under the name Robert Galbraith.

While some are excited by the prospect of another Galbraith book, Erin Burnett think it's ridiculous.

She has more OutFront.

Do male athletes get more credit and coverage at the Sochi Olympics?

In the OutFront OutTake, Erin Burnett highlighted the Sochi Olympics - saying the " Olympics, once again, has been a terrific showcase for the world's top athletes. Well, the male athletes anyway."

On Sunday night, Erin Burnett was watching the coverage of men's alpine skiing, specifically the run of Swiss Skier Carlo Janka.

Janka recently underwent heart surgery and, while discussing his recovery, the NBC announcers shared a comment Janka had reportedly made, saying, "There was a point when [Janka] said I don't even belong on the women's downhill tour."

The announcer who shared the comment was laughing as he said it. And then, just a few hours later, Burnett said she heard another announcer comment about a female snowboarder.

"That was a great run. Just five or ten years ago, that would have been a great men's run."

Burnett asks - so women are just 5 or 10 years behind men. Burnett added, "I understand that women are physically not as strong as their male counterparts, but to have a guy in a booth dismiss all female athletes is pretty bad."

Do male athletes get more credit and coverage than their female counterparts? Erin Burnett has more OutFront.
