Been craving new music from Adam Lambert? You’re in luck… sorta.

It’s not exactly a soaring club anthem, but rather a catchy new jingle. The 33-year-old entertainer joins forces with Oreo for their new campaign, Open Up With Oreo. The premise of the initiative is simple- open your heart — like a cookie — to people who are different than you and you’ll discover the similarities.

“It was always this fantasy — wouldn’t it be such a treat to record a song for a TV commercial?” Lambert said to Billboard about this latest endeavor. “The mission statement really spoke to me. They’re encouraging people to look at our similarities as opposed to our differences and that is in line with my philosophy.”

Lambert is just the latest recording artist to work with the cookie company. Tegan and Sara, Owl City and Kacey Musgraves are just a few who have been heard in previous ads. Check out Adam’s “Rolling Wonder” spots below.

Mike Tyson may move gracefully when in the ring, but on a hoverboard… not so much. The 49-year-old boxer is the latest person to fall off those mini-segways. I wanna try it too, but fearful I might be a casualty as well 😉

In a clip shared on Instagram, Tyson is shown riding around his house on the trendy gadget. Before he takes an epic fall, you can hear his daughter advise him to stop as she is fearful he might bail. It appears Tyson’s kid is a bit psychic. Mike falls and falls hard. Check it out below.

Before you decide what snazzy outfit to wear this New Year’s Eve, you might want to consider what to wear underneath. Depending on where you live, there are certain colors and/or patterns that are believed to bring good luck and prosperity. Who knew there were so many traditions below the belt to bring you good luck.

Underwear Expert enlisted model Jared North to highlight traditions from around the world. I kinda hate that I watched this since I’m somewhat susceptible to superstitions.

To celebrate their 10th anniversary, Logo TV puts the spotlight on companies that have served as pioneers and advocates for the LGBT community. Through their advertising, communications, and other visible actions, these companies have demonstrated their unwavering LGBT support over the years. Here’s the methodology on how Logo ranked the Top 25 Trailblazing Companies.

“This list was created through extensive research conducted in partnership with Witeck Communications. Starting from a pool of close to 200 consumer-facing companies that earned 100 percent scores on the Human Rights Campaign’s 2015 Corporate Equality Index, we evaluated each company based on seven objective criteria that demonstrate each company’s support of the LGBT community in the public sphere, including: Inclusive Advertising, Digital Video & Social Media, Policy Support, Spokespersons & C-Suite Executives, Donations & Sponsorships, Website Engagement, and Marriage Equality Support. Companies were awarded points based on their activity in each of these areas. The final list is composed of the 25 companies who earned the highest scores across all seven criteria.”

Not surprisingly, the list is comprised of very successful companies. It pays to be very LGBT-inclusive. Find out below to see how Gap, GM, Google and others ranked on the list.
