Justin Bieber on his Christmas album, Selena Gomez

Thanksgiving hasn't rolled around yet, but Justin Bieber is ready to get you in the holiday mood.

The teen singer's Christmas album, "Under the Mistletoe," releases Tuesday, and he told CNN that it won't be your typical compilation of "Jingle Bells" renditions.

"It's got a lot of original songs that people have never heard before," Biebs said, "so it's going to be a really special Christmas album." Better yet, a portion of the proceeds from each album will go to charity.

Ellen DeGeneres dishes on 'Idol' behind-the-scenes

It's not a secret that Ellen DeGeneres wasn't cut out for giving blunt critiques on Fox's "American Idol," but in a new interview with Parade magazine, she says there was more to her decision to leave the show.

DeGeneres lasted as an "Idol" judge for only one season, partly because as a self-described sensitive person, she likes to be "around kind, gentle people," she tells Parade.

"It was hard for me to judge people [on 'Idol'] and sometimes hurt their feelings," DeGeneres says.

Things longer than Kim K's marriage

Kim Kardashian said it was a tough call to end her marriage to her now-estranged hubby Kris Humphries, but whatever the reason, it caused a lot of people to wonder: "What's longer than Kim Kardashian's marriage?"

Well, for starters, we can refer to the gallery above, since all of those high-profile marriages outlasted Kim's 72 days of matrimony. They still ended up in the same place, though.

But according to Twitter, here are a few other things:

  • From @Seth_Rogen: "Kim Kardashian's 'singing career.'"
  • From @lizzwinstead: "The flavor in a stick of Fruit Stripe Gum."
  • From @PBSGwen: "Herman Cain at #1 in the polls."
  • From @TobeyMonster: "[Lady] Gaga's real name."
  • From @ChristyAnderson: "However long it took to find Nemo."
  • From @AshJed: "Dora the Explorer's pause, when she is waiting for you to answer her question."
  • From @A_MgDee: "The hashtag #ThingsLongerThanKimsMarriage."
  • And of course, from @SoVeryAwkward: "That awkward moment when the list of #ThingsLongerThanKimsMarriage is longer than Kim's marriage."
