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… / December 9, 2014

Listen: Mariah Carey’s Live Performance Of “All I Want For Christmas Is You,” Will Make Your Ears Bleed

Caution: What you are about to hear, you cannot unhear. Last night, Mariah Carey took the stage at the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree lighting ceremony in NYC, and sang her hit “All I Want For Christmas Is You.” Needless to say, she killed in…in the WORST WAY POSSIBLE. Like, she actually butchered the hell out…

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…

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…

Justin Bieber Flirts With Mariah Carey In New Christmas Video

Mariah Carey and Justin Bieber’s “All I Want For Christmas” duet debuted last night during the Christmas tree lighting at Rockefeller Center. The best I can say about it is “feel good Christmas music” with a questionably appropriate music video.

Now, Mariah Carey is Mariah Carey. High notes and shaking her spray-tanned booty…

Flashback: Nirvana Wishes You A Merry Christmas

Nirvana wasn’t grunge-style disaffected when RuPaul was around. Heck, she even got them to sing “We Wish You A Merry Christmas” together! Aw, weren’t the ’90s precious?

What She Really Wants For Christmas Is Kinky

From The Wetspots, the Canadian swingers/comedic singing duo who have brought you hit singles like “Do You Take It (In The Ass)” and “(Sometimes I Just Want To F**k) Somebody Else,” now comes a new holiday classic: “Just Fist Me This Christmas.” It really is a recession-friendly present, especially since most of us are…

Is Leighton Meester The Next Mariah Carey?

Leighton Meester has been working hard on launching her singing career, providing guest vocals on other groups’ songs (Cobra Starship’s “Good Girls Go Bad“) and performing at the opening of American Eagle’s flagship store in New York City last week. Now, she’s trying to get a holiday song stuck in our heads à la…
