Meghan Trainor Sings Faux Thanksgiving Carols

The market is oversaturated with Christmas albums and every year more and more new ones enter the crowded field. While there are so many songs about Santa, Jesus and other yuletide fare, there’s barely anything about the joys of turkey on Thanksgiving.

For our American readers enjoying the holiday tomorrow, Meghan Trainor is here to fill in the gap. The “All About That Bass” singer hopes her tracks about missing her flight, racist Granny and other awkward topics about Turkey Day will become new holiday classics.

Sadly, the the album is just part of a skit for Jimmy Kimmel Live! Who else things this faux album could be a potential hit? Check out the hilarious commercial below.

Back in the day, Salt-N-Pepa wanted to talk about sex. These days, the pioneering rap act have a different topic on their mind- insurance. Random, yes. Hilarious, doubly yes.

Geico enlisted Salt, Pepa and Spinderella to push their policy plans using their iconic hit “Push It.” Times have definitely changed. Nothing makes me feel older then watching once hip acts now being the ideal people to pitch things for the mature and responsibly-minded.

Check out their cute commercial below where they bring out their thoroughly 80s jackets out of the vault. A day early for Throwback Thursday but very rad.

If you watched the American Music Awards this past Sunday, you no doubt noticed it was clearly geared towards a younger demo. The only artists over 40-years-old deemed relevant enough to perform on stage were Jennifer Lopez and Mary J. Blige. It’s not surprising that those of a different generation didn’t find them entertaining. Bette Midler being one of them.

The Divine Miss M started this brouhaha by saying, “It’s terrible! It’s always surprising to see someone like Ariana Grande with that silly high voice, a very wholesome voice, slithering around on a couch… looking so ridiculous.” She added, “Trust your talent. You don’t have to make a whore out of yourself to get ahead. You really don’t.” Ariana didn’t take the slight shade lying down and responded on Tuesday.

God, I’ve missed this woman. I’m hoping this is a sign of more things to come from Kween Kelly. Yuletide tracks are all well and good, but this fan wants a new album filled with pop hits. Especially after witnessing her recent covers of Sam Smith’s “Stay With Me” and Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off.” She slayed them beyond belief. Perhaps she should just release an album full of covers. How awesome would that be!!!

Kelly Clarkson released her very first Christmas album last year. Due to a pregnancy, the original American Idol released just one music video- “Underneath The Tree.” A year later, the 32-year-old singer takes a break from raising her adorable baby to debut a second clip for Wrapped In Red. The simple clip for the title track shows Clarkson sharing memories from Christmases past and looking glamorous singing into a mic. Watch her festive clip below.

For those too young to remember, David E. Kelley was sort of the Ryan Murphy of the 90s. The 58-year-old writer/producer was responsible for some of the most memorable series of the decade including Doogie Howser, M.D., Chicago Hope, Ally McBeal, The Practice and Picket Fences. His track record this decade hasn’t been as hot with several high-profile duds such as Harry’s Law, The Crazy Ones and the failed pilot for Wonder Woman. Here’s hoping his losing streak is finito.

Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon are definitely banking on his luck changing. The duo have signed on to star in a limited series titled Big Little Lies by Kelley. It is based on Liane Moriarty’s best-selling book of the same name.

Earlier this year, Kidman and Witherspoon optioned the rights to the book in hopes of starring in it for a feature film. Looks like they’re fulfilling the acting part, but it’s heading to a different medium. The two A-list actresses will executive produce along with Kelly and author Moriarty. Talk about too many chefs in the kitchen ;)

Rihanna Teases New Music Via Instagram

Like clockwork from 2009 to 2012, Rihanna released a brand spanking new album every November. No doubt to achieve that elusive No. 1 album. Having received much criticism for being just a singles artist, the 26-year-old made sure to shut her critics down.

Alas, when her seventh studio album, Unapologetic, hit pole position, RiRi kinda took it easy and focused her energy on touring, making movies, landing endorsement deals and other lucrative endeavors. To the delight of her Navy, it appears she’s staging a comeback.

It’s been rumored for a while now that a new album was on its way. In a post on Instagram on Tuesday, Rihanna pretty much confirmed it. She posted a clip teasing her new music with the caption, “phuckin roun in da studio.”

It’s hard to make anything out of such a short snippet, but any new music from Rihanna is very much welcomed. Absence does indeed make the heart grow fonder. Check out the preview below.

2015 Independent Spirit Awards Nominations Announced

Since major studio big budget films aren’t eligible for these awards, the Independent Spirit Awards aren’t much of a reliable barometer for the Oscars. However, it’s still an important stop during the crowded awards season. Anytime you can grab some campaigning time for your film, it’s always beneficial. Love Is Strange, for instance, starring John Lithgow and Alfred Molina has barely been mentioned in the Oscar race but snagged several nominations including Best Feature.

Rosario Dawson and Diego Luna announced the nominations at the W Hotel in Hollywood on Tuesday. Leading the pack with six nominations was Birdman starring Michael Keaton. The 63-year-old actor snagged a nod himself, along with his co-stars Emma Stone and Edward Norton. Close behind with five nods apiece were Selma, Nightcrawler and Boyhood. The latter film featuring Patricia Arquette is considered a strong frontrunner to take home the Best Supporting Actress Oscar come February.

The winners will be presented with their awards on Saturday, February 21 in Santa Monica Beach, the day before the 2015 Oscars. Check out all the 2015 Independent Spirit Awards Nominations below.
