#JANETNATION! Joseph Gordon-Levitt lip syncs ‘Rhythm Nation’
Joseph Gordon-Levitt went full-on “Rhythm Nation” during The Christmas episode of “Lip Sync Battle.”
The actor emulated Janet Jackson’s iconic music video from her all-black wardrobe down to the choreography. Gordon-Levitt even recreated Jackson’s ponytail and hat combination.


Model Chrissy Teigen, another of the show’s guest stars,  said Gordon-Levitt went, “full-on Janet.”
Gordon-Levitt appeared on “Lip Sync Battle” with fellow “The Night Before” co-stars Anthony Mackie and Seth Rogen. The three did more throw-back performances with Mackie lip-syncing to MC Hammer’s “Too Legit to Quit” and Gordon-Levitt, Mackie and Rogen performing Run DMC’s “Christmas in Hollis” alongside Run DMC himself.

Uh Oh! NeNe Leakes Fires Back At Kenya Moore’s “New Queen” Of RHOA Comment!
NeNe Leakes and Kenya Moore may no longer be co-stars on the Real Housewives of Atlanta, but that doesn’t mean they still aren’t fighting over who the Queen Bee of RHOA is. NeNe is now firing back at Kenya’s claims that a new Queen has taken the thrown on RHOA.

In a recent interview, Kenya claimed that RHOA didn’t need NeNe and that in fact “there might just be a new queen as a ruler now.”

Well, NeNe didn’t take to kindly to Kenya’s claims that she’s no longer the Queen of RHOA despite leaving the franchise.

NeNe makes it clear that she is and will always be the Queen Bee of RHOA saying,“Well <fake laugh> that is so cute. Isn’t that something cute to say? You know, one can tell when there’s always been someone thirsting to be in the same spot that you’ve been in when you’ve worked with them. But I must say, I don’t think anyone thinks of Real Housewives of Atlanta, and says, ‘You know, Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kenya,’ I think that’s not what they say. They say, ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta, NeNe Leakes.’ I believe everybody associates Real Housewives with NeNe Leakes. I mean, be for real.”

As for Kenya, NeNe snarked that the thirst and jealousy are real when it comes to her former co-star and nemesis. “That’s why I have so many haters, honey. And that’s why there’s so many thirsty girls that come on this platform, and they want to emulate what I’ve done. They can’t. What they have to do is, stay in their lane and do what works for them.”

I’m just blown away by NeNe’s lack of humility, but I guess that why fans love or love-to-hate-her!
Do you think RHOA has a new Queen or is NeNe still the supreme ruler of the show? Will anyone ever be able to fill NeNe’S shoes on RHOA?

Adele's '25' Set to Break One-Week U.S. Album Sales Record; Sold Over 900K at iTunes First Day
(Billboard) After a day on sale, forecasters say '25' could sell at least 2.5 million in its first week in the U.S.
After one day on sale, Adele's 25 appears set to break *NSYNC's long-standing one-week Nielsen-era U.S. album sales record of 2.42 million sold, according to industry forecasters. Sources say the set is on track to sell at least 2.5 million in pure album sales in its first week, and sold more than 900,000 copies alone through the iTunes Store on its first day of release.

25 was released on Nov. 20 through XL/Columbia Records. It's Adele's third studio album.
*NSYNC currently owns the single largest sales week for an album since Nielsen Music began tracking point-of-sale music purchases in 1991. (Prior to 1991, there was no authoritative music sales tracking service in the U.S. and thus, it was mostly unknown how many copies of an album or song/single were sold in a single week.)
*NSYNC's No Strings Attached debuted with 2,416,000 sold in the week ending March 26, 2000. No Strings Attached has since remained the only album to sell 2 million copies in the U.S. in a single week.

Nielsen Music's tracking week runs Friday through Thursday each week, so 25's first week will conclude on Nov. 26. Billboard is scheduled to report 25's debut week sales on Nov. 29, once Nielsen has finished processing its weekly data.
Before 25's release, it was reported that the album shipped 3.6 million physical copies to retailers. In addition, sources were forecasting 25's CD configuration to sell 1.5 million in its first week, while its digital edition could move another 1 million (meaning, its first week might be at least 2.5 million in total).

Now perhaps the question is: How much bigger can 25 get? Will it blow past the 2.5 million threshold? Can it hit 3 million? And what will 25 sell in its second and third week? Could it become the first album to sell a million copies in more than one week?
If 25 sells as expected, it will become the 20th album to sell at least a million copies in a single week in the Nielsen era. It would also instantly be the largest selling album of 2015 in total, surpassing the sales of Taylor Swift's 1989, which has sold 1.74 million this year (through Nov. 12).

25 is also on course to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart (dated Dec. 12), which would give the diva her second No. 1. She first led the list with her last album, 21, which spent 24 nonconsecutive weeks atop the list -- most weeks at No. 1 for an album by a woman. 21 has sold 11.23 million copies in the U.S., and is the tenth-largest selling album of the Nielsen era.

The American Music Awards! The Fashion, The Winners!
The American Music Awards show Sunday was a boring party to say the least -- from host Jennifer Lopez showing a rarely seen side of herself to the amazing performances that kept the audience on their feet.
There were duets featuring the likes of Alanis Morissette and Demi Lovato, but the show's finale was the hit of the night, as Justin Bieber closed with three songs, including one of which he danced in the rain.

On a heavier note, Celine Dion paid tribute to the victims of the Paris attacks, which had members of the audience in tears. It was a poignant moment during a night that was meant to bring people together to celebrate music and each other.

Here are some of the Red Carpet Looks!

Here are the top moments from the show:

1 -- Jennifer Lopez
The host kicked the night off with an epic, 10-minute dance montage of the year's biggest hits.
"Tonight's not about me, tonight is about the music," she said when she came out. "You all want to dance with me?"

She then danced to "Uptown Funk," "Girl Crush," "Bad Blood," "Hotline Bling" and a slew of other hits. It even had Justin Bieber dancing in his seat.
Later in the night, Lopez got a bit emotional, explaining it was always her dream to be hosting the show when she was a little girl growing up in the Bronx. It was a side of J.Lo you don't often see and it came through as genuine and candid.

2 -- The Performances - Alanis, Bieber, Meghan and More!
Selena Gomez performed early with her hit, "Same Old Love." She had the audience singing along, and also had a group of tap dancers behind her break it down toward the end of the performance. Next, the show switched gears when Carrie Underwood performed a very romantic version of her song "Heartbeat," while wearing a very sleek red dress.

The night really took off when Demi Lovato took the stage to not only perform "Confident," but later welcomed Alanis Morissette to join her for a duet of the 1995 smash hit "You Oughta Know" to celebrate the song's 20th anniversary. It brought the house down.
Another jaw-dropping moment came when Meghan Trainor and Charlie Puth performed "Marvin Gaye" and made out afterwards while still on the stage. Luke Bryan, who won for Best Male Country Star even joked about the kiss during his acceptance speech.

It wouldn’t be a show without a performance by One Direction, who performed "Perfect," followed by Nick Jonas playing drums and singing his song "Jealous" with a full chorus behind the pop star.
For the first time in seven years at the AMAs, Coldplay took the stage, singing "Adventure of a Lifetime" in front of a colorful mix of shapes and animation. The Weeknd performed shortly after in front of a fire show, then Luke Bryan was joined by Karen Fairchild to perform "Home Alone Tonight."
Bieber closed the show with a three-parter of his songs "What Do You Mean?" "Where Are Ü Now" and "Sorry," dancing in the rain.

3 –- 'Clueless' Reunion and Gwen's Emotional Song
"It's been 20 years since Jeremy and I worked on 'Clueless,'" actress Alicia Silverstone said, right before she and Jeremy Sisto introduced Gwen Stefani to sing her new song, "Used to Love You."
In fact, Sisto talked about the then "up-and-coming" band No Doubt from back in 1995, Stefani's former group that hit it big with dozens of hits over the years.

Gwen then performed "Used to Love You" in front of sad images of herself, and with lines like "I don't know why I cry," Stefani connected with the audience on a whole new level. Couples were shown in the seats, holding hands, gently singing along. Stefani recently announced that she and Gavin Rossdale were separating after more than a decade of marriage. She's now dating country star Blake Shelton.

4 -- Celine Dion's Tribute to Paris
Before the show, it was announced Dion would be performing Edith Piaf's "Hymne à L'Amour" in French in honor of the victims of the Paris attacks.
Before her performance, Oscar-winner Jared Leto gave a touching story about his band playing at the Bataclan concert hall a short while back, calling the venue one of his favorite places to play. He spoke about the senseless killing of more than 100 people, many more critically injured, just over a week ago and how it forever changed Paris.
"France matters, Russia matters, Syria matters ... the entire world matters and peace is possible," Leto exclaimed. "Many of us here are the sons and daughters of immigrants."
As Dion performed, people in the audience broke out in tears. The AMAs put it best after the song, tweeting, "Thank you, @celinedion. That was beautiful."

5 -- 'Star Wars' Spectacular
Not only did Pentatonix, the hit a cappella group, perform the iconic score from the "Star Wars" movies, but a new scene from highly-anticipated "The Force Awakens" played before.

In the scene, Rey and Finn are running from an attack. After the short clip, fans stood on their feet for the legendary Harrison Ford, who paid tribute to John Williams, the composer of the "Star Wars" score.
As for Pentatonix, the band's performance was chilling. The harmonizing of the score was incredible and the band was all decked out in Force-inspired gear. Then came the roar of the orchestra. Words can't do the performance justice.

Monica Enlists Timbaland, Missy Elliott & Lil Wayne For Code Red Album 
After three decades in the game, millions on top of millions of records sold and being known internationally simply by her first name, it’s safe to say that Monica has become R&B royalty.

As we move closer to its release, this cover speaks volumes as to how I feel. Empowered. Motivated. Dedicated. I’m fully immersed in this necessary movement for R&B Music. There’s no greater feeling than doing what you love with authenticity. I give you Code Red.”
Code Red impacts the world on December 18 and is currently available for pre-order on iTunes. Additionally, a tour to support the album’s rollout is currently underway.

Angie Stone Regrets Passing on Idris Elba
Angie Stone recalls the time actor Idris Elba had a huge crush on her and expresses her regrets for passing him up…
In a recent interview Angie Stone reveals actor Idris Elba had a massive crush on her after her break-up with R&B singer D'Angelo but she banished him to the friend zone.

Angie tells Madame Noir:
“When Idris and I were working on that video [I Want to Thank You] Idris was actually crushing on me. The sad part about it is I wasn’t checking for him like that…for a very long time he made it very public that he was in love with Angie Stone and I had already been with D’Angelo…We did become very close, but not in that way."
"Later I found out how he was going on with his homeboys about how I didn’t want to date him. But I had already gone out there on a limb about how I would never date Idris because he’s like my brother. So I had to stick to my guns. Do I regret it? Absolutely. But the one thing about is, I have the luxury of knowing he was digging me."


New Music: LaTocha Scott formerly of XSCAPE - What Is This?
LaTocha continues her viral movement with the brand new fan freebie, "What Is This?" On the piano-laden ballad, the Xscape songstress unleashes her emotion-filled delivery for an eargasmic offering around the feelings about a lover.
"The track eludes to the question many of us ask ourselves when trying to understand our feelings towards a significant other," notes LaTocha.
"I've been promising my fans a free album titled 'TNTB,' which stands for "Truth in the Booth" for quite some time now. I don't want to rush because I want to give my fans a great body of work, so I've decided to share songs that I've recorded during this process," LaTocha previously stated.


She added, "This will provide a better understanding of how hard I'm working to give them an album that reflects how I feel music should sound coming from me at this point in my life."

So much romance in the air today….or the guys from Jackass have decided to make a porno.
