Chrissy Teigen Made Fun of John Legend’s Remake of “Baby It’s Cold Outside”

While making an appearance on the Kelly Clarkson show, model Chrissy Teigen talked about John Legend’s recent remake of the classic Christmas song, “Baby It’s Cold Outside” which was a duet he performed with, none other than, Kelly Clarkson!

It seems that Legend’s voice coaches decided to update the song by removing the controversial lyrics, making it more appealing to the younger Me Too movement generation. What they were not ready for, the backlash was actually quite intense, telling Teigen “they ruined Christmas”.

Clarkson, 37, said people were so mad and Legend had no idea when the Me Too movement pulled the song from any radio stations like a lot of stations do during Christmas.

She added that she loves the original song that John and Clarkson recorded as a duet It seems that the duet got backlash so they decided to give up on the original and recorded a different version that apparently killed Christmas!

During Teigen’s conversation with Clarkson, she criticized people’s various comments, especially from Sharon Osborne. She basically said that Sharon assumed you guys burned them in the backyard and can never listen to them again. She sarcastically added, something about creepy songs and Christmas??

The Argument Against Re-Writing Songs

During the debut of the newly “rewritten” song, Osborne slammed Legend and Clarkson saying that no one should re-record a song just because they find it offensive. She added, what if 40 years from now, someone rewrote one of Legend’s songs because someone found it offensive?

Paraphrasing, she equated it to masterpieces in museums that are nude statues all around the world and millions of people visit each and every year. Would it be OK if she just decided to draw a bikini top on one of those nudes? It’s still a classic form of art.

Osborne said that she loves John Legend, he’s an amazing artist that she respects so why do this? It’s just not right.

To update any who do not know, “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” was an Academy Award-winning song written by Frank Loesser in 1944. It gained recognition in 1949 when it was performed in the film “Neptune’s Daughter”.

It really was never considered a Christmas song, but a winter song. The song has been sung by many artists including Rod Stewart, Dolly Parton, Idina Menzel, and Michael Buble.

Another issued that has risen more than a few eyebrows, this song is copyrighted and owned by someone. Legally, no one has the right to change any part of the song.

To date, the song has been taken off the radio playlist after all the criticism floating around the original as well as Legend and Clarkson rather strange new lyrics.

Someone I met said that in their personal opinion, you do not have to listen to a song you find offensive but you have no right to alter a song and make it your own. For more than 50 years, there have been television shows and movies that people would demand the entertainment industry get rid of saying this one or that one has had a bad effect on “my child”.

Well, mom and/or dad, change the station or don’t take them to that particular movie. You are the parents, you cannot expect the entertainment industry to bring up your kids. The same should be said about lyrics to any number of songs, no one is forcing you to listen to them nor do you have the right to take it away from others.

I really can’t argue with that…

Prince Harry & Meghan Markle Will Not Be Spending Christmas With The Queen This Year

According to a spokesperson for the royal couple, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are changing their Christmas plans. Over the past 2 years, they have spent their holidays with the royal family in their countryside Sandringham estate.

This year, Meghan, Harry, and their baby Archie will spend time with Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland. The royal couple will break away from their public duties to spend time with the Duchess’ mother instead. It’s not clear, at this time,  if they will be coming to the United States or if her mother will visit them in Britain.

Actually, their decision is totally in line with the precedent set before by other members of the royal family and they have all received great support from Her Majesty the Queen. They have all at one time or another, chosen to spend the holidays elsewhere.

William and Kate Too Spent A Christmas With Kate’s Family

Victoria Murphy said on Twitter, that Prince William and Kate Middleton have also spent holidays with the Middletons in Bucklebury instead of Sandringham.

Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, have been known to leave Sandringham in the middle of the afternoon on Christmas to visit Camilla’s children and their families.

With everything going on these days, it’s no surprise that Harry and Meghan are struggling with pressures of being in the spotlight and the scrutiny from the British press.  A break seems to be in order.  At this time, it’s uncertain if they will visit Meghan’s mother in the US or if Doria will be joining them in the UK.

As the British press is incapable of leaving the royal couple alone, I am sure we will hear soon enough if they will be visiting the United States or if Doria will be visiting them in Britain.

Queen Elizabeth II Has Finally Unloaded All Real Fur

Well, it seems Queen Elizabeth, Queen of England, has decided to drop using real fur and adopting faux fur in its place.

The Queen’s dressmaker has revealed that after 67-years of reigning, the Queen has dropped all real fur for fake fur.

She will be attending an engagement during cold weather in Britain as of right now, fake fur will be used to make sure she stays warm as reported by Angela Kelly author of her new book “The Other Side of the Coin: The Queen, The Dresser, and the Wardrobe.”

Buckingham Palace has also confirmed the news.

Why Now?

Although it’s not clear what the reason behind her decision is, she has received criticism from many animal welfare groups for using real fur in the past.

Claire Bass, Executive Director of Human Society International told Insider that they are thrilled with Her Majesty officially going fur-free.  Queen Elizabeth’s decision to “Go Faux” is the perfect reflection of the British public as the majority of people detest real fur and want absolutely nothing to do with it.

The majority of people in the UK believe the Queen’s decision to go fur-free is a very powerful message that is, without a doubt, out of fashion and does not belong in Britain.  The UK banned fur farming almost 20 years ago because it’s considered cruel and also believes it’s time for them to wrap it up by banning the sale of real fur.

Bass also stated that she believes that the British government should follow suit of the Queen’s decision and make the United Kingdom should be the first country in the world to ban the sale of animal fur.”

It’s also worth mentioning, the no-fur ruling only applies to outfits worn by Her Majesty.  Therefore, the entire palace is not fur-free.

Animal welfare groups have been protesting the royal family’s wearing fur for many years now.  In 2006, activists from The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, known as PETA,  staged a naked protest outside Buckingham Palace trying to get the palace guards to give up wearing bearskin hats.

There are more and more people, worldwide, that are fighting back about killing animals for their fur.  Many international designers have moved away from fashion that incorporates real fur.  Animal advocates in the United States have also been very vocal about real fur.  Only time will tell so all we can do is wait and see if animals will get the much-needed recognition they deserve.

Well, it seems Queen Elizabeth, Queen of England, has decided to drop using real fur and adopting faux fur in its place.

Amal Clooney To Defend Duterte-Critic Accused Of Tax Fraud

The online website Rappler covers human rights abuses carried out under President Rodrigo Duterte of the Philippines.

Duerte is a 74-year-old strongman leader who has made hostile movements against drug abuse and addicts; as a result, his actions have received extensive criticism, and Rappler’s co-founder and editor, Maria Ressa, is one of his biggest critics.

Earlier this year, Ressa published an op-ed in the Columbia Journalism Review where she accused Duterte of campaigning against the media in general and her, in particular. Now, she is being attacked with several libel and tax evasion charges.

Ressa wrote: “Legal hassles can take up 90 percent of my time; a day after our May midterm elections, I was arraigned for cyber libel in the morning and appeared for a case of securities fraud in the afternoon.”

Special Envoy for Media Freedom

Amal Clooney, who was appointed Special Envoy for Media Freedom by the British government, plans to defend Ressa. In the past, Clooney defended two Reuters journalists who were jailed for over 16 months in Myanmar before they were freed.

Doughty Street Chambers, her London-based law firm, made this statement: “Maria Ressa is a courageous journalist who is being persecuted for reporting the news and standing up to human rights abuses.

“We will pursue all available legal remedies to vindicate her rights and defend press freedom and the rule of law in the Philippines.”

However, Salvador Panelo, Duterte’s spokesperson and former legal counsel, responded condescendingly when questioned concerning Clooney’s legal team and their defense of Ressa.

According to ABS CBN News, he said, “When Maria and I debate, she’s at a disadvantage because she’s not a lawyer. She needs a lawyer. There, she has a beautiful, sexy lawyer,” referring to Clooney.

“I’m serious, I’m very serious… Ressa is just looking for an ally. They’re welcome to defend Maria.”

“Amal, she is misinformed. Maybe if we meet I can, to use the words of the President, ‘educate her.’”

In February, Ressa was arrested on cyber libel charges and commented afterward in an interview with CNN that the law was being “weaponized” against critics of Duterte, which is “draining … democracy dry.”

Judi Dench Defends The Work of Harvey Weinstein And Kevin Spacey

The 84-year-old Jude Dench came forward to defend the work of Kevin Spacey, Harvey Weinstein, and men like them as Weinstein’s sexual assault trial draws near. Though she doesn’t in any way condone sexual harassment, she believes viewers should still appreciate their life’s work – and she has quite a solid argument!

Dench spoke with Radio Times and appeared on the cover of its latest issue, saying that their work should not be tossed aside and unappreciated just because of accusations that have been brought against them. “What kind of agony is that?” she asked.

“Are we going to negate 10 years at the Old Vic [where Spacey once served as artistic director] and everything that he did? How wonderful he’s been in all those films? Are we just not going to see all those films that Harvey produced?” she continued.

You’d Have to Ban Caravaggio, Too

Dench worked with Weinstein multiple times, one of the most renown being the 1998 film Shakespeare in Love. She compared what happened to the 17th-century painter Caravaggio to the present-day situation. The man has sentenced Death on account of murder, yet his work is still venerated and hung in Roman churches and museums.

“You cannot deny somebody a talent,” Dench said. “You might as well never look at a Caravaggio painting. You might as well never have gone to see Noël Coward [the famous English playwright and actor accused of harassment].”

After The New York Times’ 2017 exposé that recorded nearly two decades of allegations of misconduct, almost 90 women came forward to accuse Weinstein of harassing, sexually assaulting, or raping them.

The charges he’s now facing are for two of those, one of which is an incident in which he allegedly forcibly performed oral sex on a woman in his New York apartment in 2006. The other is a 2013 altercation where he allegedly raped a woman in a New York hotel room. Weinstein, whose trial is expected to begin on September 9, has denied these allegations and pleaded not guilty

Will You Boycott Hoese Of Cards Because of This?

Spacey, the former House of Cards star, has been charged with the indecent assault and battery of an 18-year-old boy in July 2016, and he has also pleaded not guilty.

This is not the first of such accusations being made against him as in 1986, the actor Anthony Rapp, who was 14 at the time, claimed Spacey made sexual advances. Spacey didn’t remember such an encounter but apologized anyway.

With the #MeToo movement going strong, many men have faced accusations like these as well as much ridicule and criticism.

Yet, there are some defending men’s “freedom to pester” women. In France, for instance, one hundred women signed an open letter criticizing the #MeToo movement and the criticism men have had to deal with as a result.

Catherine Deneuve, a French movie star, gathered writers, businesswomen, academics, and performers to sign the letter, denouncing the “hatred of men and sexuality.” The letter was printed in the French newspaper Le Monde.

The 84-year-old Jude Dench came forward to defend the work of Kevin Spacey, Harvey Weinstein, and men like them as Weinstein’s sexual assault trial draws near. Though...

Obamas and Clooneys on Double Date

Photos have been released showing Barack and Michelle Obama having a great time with George and Amal Clooney during a boat excursion in Italy.  The two couples were spotted enjoying each others company while on a lake located close to the Clooneys’ Italian villa.

Both men were smartly dressed in gray suits, with the former US-President opting for a darker shade of gray.  Michelle sported black trousers teamed with a white blouse, while Amal chose a long floral dress.

Mark Zuckerberg Innovates New Sleeping Aid for Mothers

While Mark Zuckerberg might not be seen as the savior of humanity as he once was, the Facebook guru is still a hugely respected name in innovation. Known for Facebook primarily, he’s enjoyed a massive and stellar rise to the very top of the tech industry.

However, clearly still burning bright with ideas and innovations, Zuckerberg has been working on a very cool, very considerate product – a sleeping aid for mothers.

With two young kids at home, the Facebook supremo is someone who understands the value of caring for his kids. So, after seeing how exhausted everyone was at home, he decided to act. To do that, he came up with the aptly named Sleep Box. He gave it to his wife, Priscilla Chan, who immediately found it useful to get her to sleep at night.

Speaking about the invention, Zuckerberg was clear about why he made it:

“Being a mom is hard, and since we’ve had kids Priscilla has had a hard time sleeping through the night,”“She’ll wake up and check the time on her phone to see if the kids might wake up soon, but then knowing the time stresses her out and she can’t fall back asleep.”

It’s a confusing process, but it is part of being a parent. Therefore, this new invention might go some way to overcoming this problem and helping Chan get to sleep a whole lot easier than she is at the moment.

This simple but effective little tool works by putting on a dim light from 6-7AM. It might seem simple, but it does a lot for improving quality of sleep for the duo.

Smart but Simple

The light is good enough that it will wake one of us to get the kids without it being too early. However, it’s also dull enough that, if they wish to keep on sleeping, the light is not going to wake them up too early.

It’s a simple but smart little invention and one that a lot of parents would like having around the house. Now, waking up in the middle of the night is not going to feel like such a stressful experience.

Indeed, Zuckerberg himself noted that even he was impressed at just how well the product had done at improving sleeping quality, saying: “As an engineer, building a device to help my partner sleep better is one of the best ways I can think of to express my love and gratitude,

“A bunch of my friends have told me they’d want something like this, so I’m putting this out there in case another entrepreneur wants to run with this and build sleep boxes for more people!”

What a cool little product. Be sure to keep an eye out for this, as it is very much likely to be made by someone else who can see the potential in this small but simple little box. Who knew the genius behind Facebook would also be the genius behind saving mothers from restless nights!?

While Mark Zuckerberg might not be seen as the savior of humanity as he once was, the Facebook guru is still a hugely respected name in innovation. Known for Facebook...

Why Does Queen Elizabeth Wear Gloves?

Over the many years that Queen Elizabeth has occupied the throne, there are a few things that stand out when it comes to her attire such as a bright colored coat, her matching hat, always a huge brooch, and lastly, her perfect gloves!  She has also been known to wear many different sunglasses in many different colors including blue, yellow, and fuchsia.

Back to the question about the gloves.  Actually, there is a really good reason, the queen must shake a lot of hands during the course of a day.  She is constantly exposed to germs so her gloves protect her!

Ever since her honeymoon in 1947, the glove manufacturer Cornelia James has kept the queen in a large supply of gloves.  Genevieve James, the current director, and daughter of Cornelia told Good Housekeeping, the gloves may serve a practical purpose but have also become her trademark over the years.

In 1947, the royal couturier Norman Hartnell, who designed the queen’s wedding dress, ordered a suitcase of James’ gloves.  James was well-known for his gloves coming in a multitude of colors as well as traditional shades which the queen loves.

Family Business

In 1979, manufacturer Cornelia James received her Royal Warrant as the official glove manufacturer to Queen Elizabeth.  After Cornelia’s death in 1999, her daughter took over the business.  It’s estimated that since that time, the company has made around 60 to 70 pairs of gloves for the queen.  Genevieve said that she can tell the difference between her creations and those of her mother’s.

Unlike your standard glove, the queen’s gloves are made from pure cotton with a suede-brushed finish. Another favored style of gloves uses a lighter Swiss jersey.  The gloves are from the Francesca or Regina collection and the length is customized for the sleeves to reach 5 inches from the base of her thumb to her arm.  This allows the gloves to reach beyond the cuff of her coat and keeps her wrists covered.

The queen has been known to keep at least 2 or 3 gloves with her at all times.  The queen is also known to be thrifty, she is likely to get her gloves washed and/or repaired due to the cost of £110 per pair. The queen has been known to keep her gloves for 40 years.  The royal family has always wanted to appear as economical, not wasting money.

It’s believed the British people are in favor of their economic spending, seeing the family in a much more favorable light. I’m sure we would all love to have these incredible gloves to add to our fashion statement, but for now, let’s just say “God Save The Queen”!

Over the many years that Queen Elizabeth has occupied the throne, there are a few things that stand out when it comes to her attire such as a bright colored coat, her...

Jackson Kids – The Unspoken Victims

It’s safe to say that the majority of the world are familiar with (or heard of) the King of Pop, Michael Jackson. Micheal spent his life in the public eye, from the day Jackson 5 kick-started his music career, at age 13.

During the chaos of his career, he also became a father to three children; Michael Joseph, Paris and Prince Michael.

There is no denying that the late artist went through his fair share of adversities before he passed away. However, with the focus mainly being on Michael, it was easy to forget that his three children were attempting to lead normal lives in the process and were going through their own difficulties…

So who are these Jackson children? How did they cope with their bizarre situation? where are they now? Each child has their own story filled with events and experiences that might shock you.

Gordon Ramsay Posts Pictures Of Raw Food. Why?

When you are cooking for your friends, you can pretty much serve whatever you want.  But raw food? You might want to store that in a folder labeled “What Not To Serve At A BBQ”.

That’s probably easier said than done when you are a famous international chef.  The food you prepare is going to be noticed by millions of people.  That’s a given for Gordon to deal with on a daily basis.

He has spent years shouting at chefs in kitchens, making derogatory comments about their sandwiches because they couldn’t seem to grasp how to cook a simple egg.

He is well-known for berating others and making comments that are a far cry from decent. Rarely does he have the focus turned on him or his cooking skills? It seems the tables have turned and many people have taken issue with his latest concoctions during a BBQ.

Controversial Chateaubriand

That said, people had taken issue with one of his latest accomplishments in the kitchen and placing it on social media revealing a delicious looking Chateaubriand.

The dish is served on a wooden board with a Bearnaise sauce, tomatoes, and green garnish.  The pictures, alone, will definitely stir up your appetite, but some people had questioned when the meat was going to be properly cooked?

His post was covered in comments from people saying the meat was way too raw to serve for their liking.  One person said, quite sarcastically, that if they could get a veterinarian on the scene quickly, he or she could probably resuscitate the poor cow.

Others have suggested that Ramsey place it back on the BBQ.

Secret Sauce

What many of these commentators do not understand, this is exactly how you serve Chateaubriand along with a Bearnaise sauce!  It is a tenderloin cut that is located between the sirloin and top sirloin parts of the cow.

Even though he’s not wrong, some people find the image a little beyond upsetting. Moving on to the popular online show, First We Feast, which consists of people asking questions while eating hot wings.

What you might call hot wings might not be the same, these hot wings are super HOT!

Ramsey is the most requested guest on the show and it was his kids bullying him to go on.  They told their dad he is always shouting and screaming all day because he has a big mouth, but can he actually take on some of these hot wings?

During the interview, he couldn’t help but make negative comments about the hot wings, asking how long these wings had been cooked and followed up with “because they are a bit “f**ing” overcooked. He said one of the wings looked like his grandfather’s big toe and quite simply they are just not good.

He managed to take on the wings but as the heat started to rise, he started breaking into a sweat and started tearing. Final comment, as he wiped back tears, he said “I haven’t cried this much since AA Gill’s funeral”

Way to go First We Feast! What goes around, sometimes comes back around!

When you are cooking for your friends, you can pretty much serve whatever you want.  But raw food? You might want to store that in a folder labeled “What Not To Serve...

Kanye West Loves “Rick & Morty”

We knew this before, Kanye West never has minced words when asked what his favorite TV show is, he always says it is “Rick & Morty.” Over the years, Kanye has talked about the show on his social media pages and TV. He says the episodes are so good; it is easy to watch them five times without getting bored.
The “Rick & Morty” TV show is an animated adult science fiction sitcom. It was created by Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon. The TV show can be seen on Cartoon Network during the late hours every day because of its PG rating. The sitcom is about a crazy scientist called Rick Sanchez and his grandson Morty Smith who go on different adventures across the galaxies. So far, there are over seventy episodes of the show.

The press caught up with Kanye in NYC. He had come with Kim Kardashian to enjoy the Versace fashion show. Kanye was about entering the venue of the event when he was asked the all too familiar question, “What is your favorite TV show?” and he mentioned the name we have heard for many years.

We wonder why Kanye is so fascinated by this show. The crazy humor and adventures of Rick and Morty are good for a laugh. It is warming to know that Kanye can find time to unwind with such a hilarious show despite his busy schedule.

We won’t be surprised to see a cameo with Kanye on the “Rick & Morty” show in the nearest future. He has made the show quite popular. Last time Kanye mentioned the TV show’s name, the search results online increased because many people were interested in seeing the show Kanye was so passionate about.

We also noticed a bromance forming between Kanye and the creator of “Rick & Morty” Justin Roiland. The two have been communicating on Twitter, and there are plans to hand out. Kanye has also taken an interest in the characters of the show; he posts pictures of Rick and Morty on his social media pages. The special one happened during Kanye’s birthday. His wife Kim Kardashian launched a new Rick and Morty song titled “Kanye’s B Day,” which was originally composed for Kanye’s birthday

UPDATED: The Winners At The 70th Emmy Awards

UPDATE 18/09/2018: The list of winners at the 2018 Emmy Awards has now been added to the end of this post.

Predictions abound for the 70th iteration of the Emmy’s with several of television’s most celebrated shows set for a big night at the Television Academy Awards held at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Monday, September 17, 2018.

“This year’s nominations continue to represent increased diversity and inclusion in front of the camera,” said Television Academy Chairman and CEO Hayma Washington. “And, there is a wealth of new and returning programs that reflect so many of today’s critical issues.”

Among all shows up for awards, Game Of Thrones has the most nominations (22) in all categories, followed by Saturday Night Live (21) and Westworld (21). Leading the nominations in totals by platform are Netflix (112), HBO (108) and NBC (78). With over a hundred awards on offer, we’ll take our pics among the contenders for the Drama Series category’s main awards.

Outstanding Drama Series

The award for the best drama series seems like a two horse raise between downtrodden handmaidens and the dragon-riding royalty of Westeros. With Game of Thrones famously absent from last year’s awards, the Handmaid’s Tale swooped in to collect the gong. This year, the two go head-to-head. Critics are predicting a win for the Hulu drama to repeat the feat again this year.

Lead Actor In A Drama Series

It looks to be a threepeat for actor Sterling K. Brown. The This Is Us star comes in having won consecutive awards for The People v. O.J. Simpson and This Is Us. With his fictional father, Ron Cephas Jones, winning the Guest-Actor award in a stunning upset this past weekend, it means voters have been paying attention to the storyline. Realistically, Brown’s main threat is his co-star and fictional adopted father, Milo Ventimiglia, who perhaps had a more emphatic role this past season.

Lead Actress In A Drama Series

Likewise, except a repeat for Elisabeth Moss to win this year’s gong. The Handmaid’s Tale star’s compelling portrayal in the series seems impossible to beat, with the show’s success due in large part to the star’s series-carrying performance. Having been overlooked for her past work on Mad Men, Moss is a shoe-in for this year’s award once again.

Supporting Actor In A Drama Series

Last year’s winner, John Lithgow for The Crown, isn’t in the running this year, which leaves the field wide open. Both Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Peter Dinklage can consider themselves contenders for their roles on Game of Thrones. Dinklage already having two previous wins and Coster-Waldau being tasked with the season’s most poignant moments. However, Matt Smith for his perfectly petty and occasionally sympathetic portrayal as Prince Philip in The Crown is apparently tipped to win.

Supporting Actress In A Drama Series

The Handmaid’s Tale has three nominees this award, making up it a favorite to win this award. Interestingly the show has yet to lose an acting category in which it has been nominated. The real question is not if but who among its nominees will win. Samira Wiley was awarded this year’s Guest Actress award, just as Alexis Bedel, who won last year’s Guest Actress prize, is now a season regular and up for a Supporting Actress award. Ann Dowd and Yvonne Strahovski who also star in the show are nominated. Dowd might have been the early favorite, however, as the season progressed it was Strahovski who really stole the show, having previously worked on both Chuck and Dexter.

As for the Outstanding Directing For A Drama Series, and Outstanding Writing For A Drama Series awards, there’s little to separate between Game of Thrones, The Handmaid’s Tale, and This Is Us.

“It’s been another record-breaking year with more than 9,100 entries in 122 unique categories for the initial nomination round of voting,” said Washington. “The continued growth of the industry has provided opportunities for acclaimed new programs to emerge while allowing last season’s break-through programs to thrive.”
