8 Vintage Christmas Carols (That Are All About Sex)

In 2008 Lady Gaga gave the world the gift of a song where she refers to her vagina as a Christmas tree, suggesting that she has a serious misunderstanding of how at least one of those works. Between that and other recent tracks, like Nate Dogg rapping about getting holiday head and the beloved family…

Sorry, But These Christmas Songs Are Actually Creepy

Christmas music is a fun way to get into the spirit of the Christmas season as a whole (provided you don’t work in retail, in which case you’re probably sick of them by December 2). Christmas songs are fun to sing along with while you’re wrapping gifts, decorating your tree, hanging your Christmas lights, or…

Reese Witherspoon Warbles Through “Random Phrase Christmas Carols” On “The Tonight Show”

I find the holidays generally pretty depressing, but oddly enough, I LOVE Christmas music. Like, I could listen to it year round. Nothing lifts my spirits like the opening bars of “Jingle Bell Rock” and “Silent Night.” Reese Witherspoon is also a fan of Christmas carols, so she agreed to sing “Silent Night” on “The…

Listen To Kristen Bell & Straight No Chaser’s Modern Day Christmas Carol “Text Me Merry Christmas”

I have a new favorite Christmas song that I firmly believe should take the place of “Christmas Shoes” on every radio station during the holiday season. (Let’s be honest, that song is hella depressing and has no place wedged in between “Jingle Bells” and “All I Want For Christmas Is You.”) Kristen Bell joined a cappella…

Mariah Carey Did A Whole “Today Show” Interview In Wearing A Silk Robe & Agent Provocateur Slippers

If I was a celebrity, I would be just like Mariah Carey. She’s got a “pink room” — that she doesn’t let her kids into — in her home  filled with pink cushions and rugs and a chandelier (obvs). Her Christmas tree is decorated with dozens of real peonies. And she gave this entire interview while wearing…

Holiday Playlist: Merry XXXMas!

The key to making a good holiday mix is to not overdo it. You’ve got to include tons of holiday tracks, yes, but you should also add some non-Christmas-y stuff, too. Otherwise your mix will start to sound like the tacky Christmas music loop you hear in Macy’s or something. Plus, you’ve gotta mix some…

Updated Christmas Carols: Celeb Couple Edition

Last year we rewrote some traditional Christmas carols to reflect the awkward reality of modern holiday celebrations. This year we thought we’d give some festive tunes a pop culture twist. Let’s kick things off with three songs to honor the strange twists and turns of three celebrity couples who made headlines this year. Grab some…

Fiona Apple Gets “Frosty” & Other Celebs Singing Christmas Carols

Is there anything better than a good ol’ cheesy Christmas carol? What about a cheesy Christmas carol sung by a famous person?

Don’t worry: I won’t subject to you John Travolta and Olivia Newton John’s what-the-fuck-is-going-on-here Christmas carol shitshow again. I’ve only rounded up the best (by which I mean both “best” in the…

Mariah Carey And Jimmy Fallon Sing “All I Want For Christmas (Is You)”

Well, this is just the cutest! Mariah Carey visited “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” to perform a Christmas ditty with Fallon and The Roots and it’ll light up even the Grinchiest of hearts. “All I Want For Christmas (Is You)” is a fun song to begin with, but it’s even more adorable with the choru…

Baby, It’s Consensual Outside

“Baby, It’s Cold Outside” is the most squirmy of Christmas songs. It’s supposed to be a cute duet between a woman and a man who wants her to stay longer, clearly written during a time period when a woman’s “reputation” for not having casual sex truly mattered. As such, the lyrics are pretty date rapey,…

3 Modernized Christmas Carols To Celebrate Awkward Family Time

Christmas carols are nice, but they’re a little out of touch with the realities of modern life, don’t you think? I mean, red-nosed reindeer, frosty snowmen, jingling bells, and little drummer boys? Whatever. I think it’s time for an update. Ready to sing about real holiday topics like awkward political discussions, chaste sleeping arrangements, and…

John Kransinski Croons A Christmas Carol

So, this morning Simcha professed her hatred for holiday music, sadly, one of my greatest guilty pleasures. But I think I’ve found just the thing to open her eyes to the joys of festive tunes! For some unknown reason, adorably nerdy-hot actor John Krasinski (Jim on “The Office”) stopped by an Aimee Ma…
