It's the first full week in December, and to kick it off we've got Angelina Jolie, Johnny Depp, more vampires, country stars in Vegas and a partridge in a pear tree. Here's what to watch for:
• It’s a big week for country music fans! The “American Country Awards” air live from Vegas Monday at 8 p.m. on Fox.
• New in theaters Friday is “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader,” and Angelina Jolie teams up with Johnny Depp in “The Tourist.” Depp will discuss the movie Tuesday on the “Late Show with David Letterman.”
• Albums being released Tuesday include T.I.’s “No Mercy,” Hinder’s “All American Nightmare,” “Wonders of the Younger” by the Plain White T’s, Flyleaf’s “Remember to Live,” and Natasha Bedingfield’s “Strip Me.” Bedingfield will talk about the album Thursday on NBC’s “Tonight Show with Jay Leno.”
Has all this talk about JayTay - aka Gyllenswift, aka Swiftenhaal, whichever - made you a little thirsty?
Understandable if so; the twosome were reportedly spotted spending Thanksgiving getting maple lattes in Brooklyn.
The coffee shop in question was Park Slope's Gorilla Coffee, and from what we’ve found, it seems to be one of the few places around selling this special maple brew. (I just tried to order one at Starbucks, unsuccessfully.)
Lady Gaga has been promoting her new album “Born This Way” throughout her Monster Ball tour, but during a performance Friday night in Poland, the star took the hype to a whole new level.
“I promise to give you the greatest album of this decade, just for you," the tearful artist told concert attendees.
Gaga announced the album title after accepting the Video of the Year Award for “Bad Romance" at this year's MTV Video Music Awards, and she says the album may contain 20 new songs. "It used to be kind of a faux pas to put out too much music on your album, but I feel like you guys deserve all of the records I do, 'cause I work hard on them," the singer said.
If you somehow managed not to be blown away by the fabulous things Oprah Winfrey gave away Friday during her “Ultimate Favorite Things” show, never fear! The daytime queen was at it again today with part two of the last “Favorite Things” special ever. The fact that it was the very last did give the special a tinge of sadness, but let’s get on to the gifts!
The show opened with Winfrey, clad in gold, telling the audience how exhausted she was from the first part of her “Ultimate Favorite Things.”
“Were you really ticked off you missed the first show? Did you see the people leaving with all their stuff?” she asked the audience, which was filled with heroes, givers and ultimate viewers, all of whom thought they’d just missed out on the hottest ticket in television.
Happy Thanksgiving, fellow pop culture junkies!
Eating yourself into a comatose state is important, but there is a lot more to be excited about this week. Here are ten pop culture releases and don't-miss TV moments to watch out for:
• This is a big week for music fans, as the American Music Awards aired last night at 8 p.m. ET. During the show, the Backstreet Boys and New Kids on the Block performed together for the first time, giving us a taste of what’s to come in their upcoming summer tour! Let the countdown begin.
Today is the day Oprah fans look forward to the other 364 days of the year: “Oprah's Ultimate Favorite Things” special!
Because it’s the farewell season of the mega talk show, many thought this would be a massive blowout … and they were right. This year it’s a two-day “joy filled frenzy” with a “humongous twist guaranteed to curl your candy canes,” and Day One definitely didn’t let me down.
Winfrey shared her favorite things with an audience of people who have given back to their families, communities, and the world.
