Despite the warnings about Black Friday yesterday, Sarah had to run out and take care of a few errands and out of curiosity’s sake (and the fact that I didn’t have to drive/park), I decided to go with her. We made our way to a relatively popular shopping center and actually had a very easy time of, well, everything. Sarah got her errands done, we snacked and lunched without incident or delay. Black Friday had nothing on us. Last night, we made our way to Royal Oak to see TWO movies with a nice dinner in between in Berkley at our beloved Living Room. All in all, it was a really great day.

Back in October we learned that Lady Gaga was teaming up with The Muppets for a holiday special set to air on ABC on Thanksgiving night. Among the performances that took place on the Lady Gaga & Muppets Holiday Spectacular was a duet between Gaga and Joseph Gordon-Levitt on the somewhat disturbing (in a date-rapey sort of way) holiday classic Baby It’s Cold Outside (which, despite the creepy lyrics remains a perennial favorite). Honestly, this song isn’t really my favorite (due to the creepiness of the lyrics) but I do love me some JGL so I have to share the performance with all y’all. Unfortunately for Gaga and ABC, the holiday special didn’t really do well in the ratings so it’s likely that many of you didn’t even see this performance when it aired Thursday night. Click above to watch the performance and see what you think. While I’m not crazy about the song, I do appreciate the simplicity of the performance and, well, JGL in anything is worth checking out (sometimes repeatedly).
Our dear Britney Spears had to stay close to her LA home for Thanksgiving this year due to the rigorous rehearsal schedule she has committed to ahead of the debut of her Las Vegas concert residency Britney: Piece of Me. As a result, Britney couldn’t go home for the holiday to see her family in Kentwood, LA. Instead, the Spears family made their way to SoCal to celebrate with Britney and her sons … and they brought all the fixins of a Spears Thanksgiving with them. Britney posted a collage photo on her official Facebook profile that gives us a taste of how she celebrated the annual day of Thanks with her family. A deep fried turkey was involved so, yeah, you know she enjoyed a great day with her family. More »
It’s been ages since I even brought up Evelyn Lozada from VH1‘s Basketball Wives, but I just couldn’t pass up on this story. The reality star is pregnant y’all. She divorced Chad Ochocinco in 2012 following their highly-publicized domestic violence incident and since then has been seeing a new mystery man. She and her new boo are presumably doing pretty well, as they are now expecting a child together. Congratulations are in order! Click inside for more.

Altho Thanksgiving was a couple of days ago, I have some fun leftovers to share with all y’all this weekend. Jimmy Fallon had guests Rashida Jones and Carrie Underwood on his show Late Night with Jimmy Fallon this week and he got them both to perform parody versions of some of our fave pop songs of the day in honor of the Thanksgiving holiday. I’ve tried to come up with a way to adequately describe the amazingness what Jimmy, Rashida and Carrie came up with but I think I shall let the video embedded above speak for itself. Check out the video to see these amazingly talented people perform renditions of songs by Daft Punk, Katy Perry, Lorde, Miley Cyrus, Icona Pop, Robin Thicke and more. Folks, it’s brilliance … pure and simple. Jimmy Fallon always does the holidays right, watch above and see what I mean.
Oh man, Justin Timberlake is sooo tryin’ to get me to obsess over him right now. He lit’rally went and grabbed pretty much all of my favorite rappers for the remix to the TKO: J. Cole, A$AP Rocky, and Pusha T. Oh, and by “favorite rappers” I mean “rappers I’m totally making babies with in a parallel universe right now or whatever.” This song was already all kinds of dope, now it’s on a whole ‘nother level. Click inside for your first listen! And shouts-out to PITNBr nicole for tweeting me the link!
There are some adorable babies out there and while most of them belong to me (true story) some of them belong to our favorite celebrities. Mariah Carey‘s twins Moroccan and Monroe are ridiculously cute and Mama Mimi has shared some great photos of them over the last couple of years. They know how to have great time, whether they’re chillin’ at home or gearing up for the holidays. So, peep the gallery for 15 crazy-adorable photos the Diva herself and Dem Babies!
Lady Gaga‘s ARTPOP single Do What U Want (featuring R. Kelly) has gotten so much buzz since it was first released back in October. The song is great, but the live performances have been kind of epic. Gaga and R. Kelly took the Saturday Night Live stage by storm and got really strong reactions to their performance (I actually enjoyed it), and then they hit up the American Music Awards with Kells playing the POTUS and Gaga, his mistress. It was intense… to say the least. And it looks like Mother Monster is trying to generate some more buzz for the single, as she’s just announced a remix with Rick Ross… although I don’t expect to see her grinding all over him if they perform the track live together (but, then again, ya never know).

Each year, Time magazine selects who they deem to be the most influential person of the year as their honored Person of the Year and this year’s honoree is about to be selected. Time allows the public to vote on who they think the Person of the Year should be but, in the end, the final decision is up to the magazine editors … which is a good thing because Miley Cyrus is in the lead for the Person of the Year title for 2013 in the online poll. Without question, Miley has enjoyed a very successful year … but is she Time magazine Person of the Year worthy? Click below to learn more and find out who Miley is beating in the online reader’s poll … and learn who claims to be behind her lead in the poll. More »
