Sony CANCELS Release Of "The Interview!"

Madonna is not a happy camper! A 13-track album of her new music has reportedly leaked onto the web. The release could be the entirety of Madonna's unannounced thirteenth studio album! Madonna's camp has dealt with a bunch of unauthorized leaks in the past few weeks and her manager is asking the public for help! They want to find out whose responsible for the leak! Madonna got on Instagram and said the leaked songs are "unfinished demos stolen long ago and not ready to be presented to the world." She thanked fans for their "loyalty" in "not listening" to the unfinished music and called what happened "artistic rape" and "a form of terrorism." That's gotta suck to be an artist and have that happen!

Huge news this morning, I mean this is a big deal! After Sony Pictures was getting threats by hackers to blow up movie theaters if "The Interview" was released, the studio has officially stopped their release plans! Sony pretty much had no choice after the major theater chains announced yesterday that they would not show the film. Here's some of Sony's statement, "We respect and understand our partners' decision and, of course, completely share their paramount interest in the safety of employees and theater-goers. Sony Pictures has been the victim of an unprecedented criminal assault against our employees, our customers, and our business. Those who attacked us stole our intellectual property, private emails, and sensitive and proprietary material, and sought to destroy our spirit and our morale – all apparently to thwart the release of a movie they did not like. We are deeply saddened at this brazen effort to suppress the distribution of a movie, and in the process do damage to our company, our employees, and the American public. We stand by our filmmakers and their right to free expression and are extremely disappointed by this outcome." Horrible that they can't share their creation, I don't think it's ever going to be released!

AH, KELLY CLARKSON! We can be getting new music from her on January 5th, the first week of the new year! People are reported that Kelly Clarkson's new single will not only come out that week, but it's being described as "pure pop." Would you expect anything less from her? But there's been no confirmation from Kelly Clarkson's camp yet, so don't get TOO EXCITED. Who am I kidding? I totally am!

Aretha Franklin has given Taylor Swift her seal of approval! She thinks that Taylor Swift will earn a place in music's hall of fame in the future, saying, "I'm a big fan of Taylor. I really do enjoy her and her music." She's even been blasting Taylor Swift's hit single, "Shake It Off" for weeks. Now coming from someone who has won 18 Grammy Awards in her decades-long career, I would take that as a compliment!

It feels good to beat Adam Levine! Just ask Blake Shelton! During a press conference after "The Voice's" seventh season finale, Blake Shelton couldn't hold back his excitement that his team member won this season! When he was asked what it felt like to beat Adam Levine, Blake Shelton said, "It was "f--king awesome! Listen, I don't care if it's politically incorrect. I don't give a crap at this point because we went into this thing with the odds stacked against us. And I'm not talking about to beat Adam, it's just awesome to know that so many people connected with this guy with the odds against him to win this competition...This was mission impossible and Craig did it." But Blake Shelton did have this to say about Adam Levine, "He may quit the show before I'm done rubbing it in his face!" HAHAHAHA! Poor Adam Levine!

He's going to make it official this weekend! Sir Elton John and his partner David Furnish are set to say "I do" this weekend! His rep is confirming it! They've been in a civil partnership since 2005 and have been together for 21 years! They are going to get married in England now that same-sex marriage has been legalized there. Elton John has talked about his wedding plans in the past, saying that it will probably be very low key and at a register office in England. Oh, and they will have their kids there! How cute! Early congratulations to Elton John!

Ariana Grande is not a diva! Everyone's been talking about it and even celebrities like Iggy Azalea tried to squash the rumor. But now everyone is saying that Ariana Grande is such a diva, that she DEMANDS to be carried around everywhere! Seriously! So now her boyfriend Big Sean is speaking up, saying, "That don't even sound logical… She don't get carried. I remember I was with her one time and she got carried but it was 'cause her foot was bleeding. She busted her foot, like, you know, dancing and stuff. That's ridiculous. That's ridiculous." Hmmm…

Shaking Off Hanukkah

Someone pointed out recently that there aren't any good Hanukkah songs out there.

It seems that the only choice is Adam Sandler's "Hanukkah Song," and that's not really about the holiday, just about folks who might celebrate it.

So along comes Six13, a Jewish a cappella group, and their parody of Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off."

You'll have fun, learn a little bit about the holiday, and even how to play with a dreidel.

And you might start bopping along with the tune. Win win!

A Box of Poo for You

You know Cards Against Humanity, right?

The makers refer to it as "a party game for horrible people" that's "as despicable and awkward as you and your friends."

On Black Friday, they made an interesting offer to folks on their website: a box of male bovine excrement for a mere $6.

They used a more guttural expression that we really shouldn't be using here...

Now, the folks at CAH report that they sold 30,000 units.

30,000 units of genuine bull crap, amounting to $180,000.

I can only imagine how popular these will be at the office Yankee Swap this year.

Now if you'll excuse me. My dog just went outside, and I'm pretty sure there's a gold mine waiting to be picked up on my lawn.

I Really Really Really Really Really Really Want This!

Dear Santa:

I know this is probably an impractical present, and that it will probably only survive one light dusting.

But Santa, I really really really really really really really want one of these.

A remote-control pickup with a snow plow attachment.

I've been really really really really good this year too.

Happy Holidays: The Christmas Spirit

Not everyone's ready for the holiday, right?

Seems like it rushes up on you sometimes. Or maybe you're just not ready for it.

Sometimes, you need a little push.

Like Chris, who gets a visit and a sizeable nudge from a Jolly Old Elf.

A fun short film to get you in the spirit...

Cancel The Interview, Please

Sony Pictures announced formally today that it will not now and maybe ever release the movie they'd scheduled for a Christmas debut, The Interview.

The film, starring Seth Rogen and James Franco as some newsmen recruited by the CIA to assassinate the leader of North Korea, drew the ire of North Korea's current ruler, who said its release would be considered an act of war.

More recently, someone hacked into Sony's servers, releasing sensitive information and threatening some drastic action if the film were released as planned.

Some interesting folks are not happy at all. Like Donald Trump... And Salman Rushdie... But, here's the question that everyone wants answered...

Happy Birthday, Frankie

Pope Francis celebrated his birthday yesterday.

Some folks took to Twitter to pass glad tidings, using #happybirthdayholyfather.

It looks like being the pope doesn't put you above the typical birthday pranks the rest of us have to endure, like sharing photos from your early years.

This one looks to be from 8th grade. What do you think?
  Meanwhile, the pope celebrated his birthday the way you'd expect this down-to-earth guy to do it. He invited some homeless men and his household staff to sit and have breakfast with him after morning mass.

Ellen Skunks Conan

Looks like the daytime talk shows have better budgets than their nighttime counterparts.

Case in point: an audience member pointed out that Ellen Degeneres gives away phenomenal gifts to everyone in her audience.

It's the way she rolls.

Amazing things like personal cappucino machines, one's very own MRI unit (complete with Fabio, your MRI tech), and the not-even-out-yet iPhone 9.

Conan had nothing but half-a-sleeve of gluten-free Fig Newtons in his car.

Not to fear. Ellen to the rescue.

Check out what she gives to every member of Conan's audience.

I wonder if Conan gets to keep one...?

5 Holiday Fights That ALL Couples Have!

It may seem like you're hearing about holiday stress and relationship drama everywhere. Well, apparently that's normal! Here's five holiday fights that all couples have! You have been warned!

The holiday fight #1: You hardly ever see your family, but your husband gets moody when he has to spend the holidays with them, so you end up feeling resentful.

The holiday fight #2: You love traditions, but your husband could care less. You tell him he's taking away from your holiday spirit, but nothing ever changes.

The holiday fight #3: You and your husband are on totally different pages about gift-giving. He wants to spend big when you're working to pay down debt.

The holiday fight #4: His mother knows just what to say to push your buttons, and then your husband gets mad at you for losing it on her.

The holiday fight #5: You feel like you always shoulder the bulk of the holiday duties--from making cookies, to gift shopping, to buying plane tickets--and start to take it out on your husband by getting short.
