It’s that time of year where the weather is getting chillier, Mariah Carey is raking in the cash, and we’re starting to drown in the deluge of made-for-TV holiday movies. And who better to make our Christmases bright and gay than Lindsay Lohan! In case you missed this earth-shattering news, Lindsay is back from her self-appointed exile in Europe and Dubai (we could only stay lucky for so long) and is slated to star in Netflix’s holiday-themed movie, “Untitled Holiday Rom-Com!” Yeah, they still haven’t named the thing, so you know it’s going to be film excellence.
Though I have tried in the past, many times, in fact, to reject, ignore or otherwise turn my back on the ubiquitous harbinger of the Holiday season, All I Want For Christmas Is You by Mariah Carey. But I, a mere mortal with mortal ears, cannot resist the siren call of its jingle-jangle perfection and I WILL be making a fool out of myself in the produce aisle of my local grocery store by squeezing my eyes shut, one finger to my ear and the other finger going every which way as I trill along from now until January 2022. So sue me. Am I not an American? Do I not bleed red, white, and glitter? Well, according to NPR, Mariah has a new Christmas song out today called Fall in Love at Christmas feat. Khalid & Kirk Franklin and I’m about to listen to it for the very first time. I hope you will join me on this festive journey of discovery!
Miss Rockefeller Spruce 2020–AKA the big ass tree which gets cut down every year to be displayed in New York’s Rockefeller Center–made her way to the Big Apple yesterday. And her transport seems to have been a bit shaky. The 2020 Rockefeller Christmas Tree was put up and had Twitter users saying: “It’s A Coronavirus Christmas, Charlie Brown.”
Okay, without thinking too much about it, try to guess how Meghan Trainor and her husband of nearly two years, the Spy Kids boy (aka Daryl Sabara). Did they:
1. Instagram a black and white picture of Meghan and Daryl’s hands forming a heart on her stomach
2. Make a little sponsored content cash by Instagramming a picture of a ClearBlue pregnancy test
3. Honestly, I’m not going to think of a third, because there’s no way you’re going to guess correctly
Meghan and Daryl must not realize that it’s still the official month of spooky scary skeletons and pumpkin patches. Because their pregnancy announcement was delivered nestled among the branches of a fully-decorated Christmas tree. It’s still the first week of October! Even the merchandisers at Target are like, “You couldn’t wait until we put the fun-size Snickers on sale first?”
