The karaoke car ride we have all been waiting for has finally been bestowed upon us!
Adele recently took a car ride with fellow Brit James Corden and flexed her rapping skills. Corden is known for bringing the biggest names in music like Justin Bieber and One Direction along for a ride to belt out tunes in his car.
Corden opens the skit with a parody of Adele’s lyrics to ‘Hello’ before they start to duet the song and she utterly is blown away by his spontaneous harmonies. The pair are an absolute riot together as the joke about Adele getting drunk during the holidays and jam out to the Spice Girls.
Adele has gone on the record to say she is a huge fan of Beyoncé and if she could collaborate with anyone it would be Drake, but we didn’t know she was a huge Nicki Minaj fan. Last year marked the five year anniversary for Minaj’s famous verse from the song ‘Monster’ that featured Kanye West and Jay-Z.
The ‘When We Were Young’ singer definitely channeled her inner Minaj, giving us facials, attitude and her signature finger wag.
When Minaj caught a glimpse of the clip she immediately posted the video to Instagram and captioned it, “Pull thru, QUEEN!!!!! #Adele #Monster the attitude & fingers to match. #Oh #Ok #IcoNic I cried when she waved bye to the careers #Hello #BuhBye”

2015 is almost over so we’re taking you through 10 of 2015’s top trending moments.
10. Shia LaBefou ‘Just Do It’ 🙇🏻
Full equipped with his rat tail, LaBefou has had a rather interesting year. From being arrested and live tweeting his own reactions to his starring roles to making inspirational videos, we were all motivated to ‘just do it’.
9. Baby Yeezus👨🏾👩🏻👧🏽👶🏽
After the announcement of Kimye expecting their second child and revealing it would be a boy, the world could not wait to meet baby Yeezus. Kim Kardashian gave birth to Saint West on Dec. 5th after posting an Instagram photo just hours before her delivery captioning it, ‘Ready whenever you are lol.’ Saint joins North as another addition to the Kardashian-West clan.
8. Kanye President 2020 👨🏾🇺🇸 🗽 Yeezus for President! At least that’s what the 38-year-old rapper proclaimed at this year’s MTV VMAs. After giving a speech that seemed to do nothing but drag on after receiving the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, Kanye announced his run for the White House in 2020. We aren’t entirely sure if he was serious because he was under the influence and drinking something brown, but we can only cross our fingers he wasn’t serious…
7. Drake Diss 👦🏽👊🏾🔥👨🏾
R.I.P. Meek Mills. Just when you thought the Internet killed Meek Mills, Drake went ahead to bury him. After Meek claimed that Drake doesn’t write his own raps he tried to make a diss track about Drake in which Drake fired back with three diss tracks that had the Internet blowing up. Do you need some ointment for that burn, Meek?
6. Justin Bieber Album📀🙏🏼
What do you mean you didn’t get J-Bieb’s ‘Purpose’ album? The ‘Where Are Ü Now’ singer returned to music this year with heavy celebrity promotion and memes for his new album ‘Purpose’. The Biebs also performed at the MTV VMAs for the first time in five years and broke down on stage. After cleaning up his bad boy image, Justin appears to have a new found faith, respect for his fans, and purpose for his music.
5. White/Gold vs. Blue/Black Dress
I mean, should we really speak about it? You know, the dress that started wars, broke families and friendships, and reeked havoc on every soul it encountered? Okay maybe that’s a little dramatic, but that damn dress fooled us all. Earlier this year a photo surfaced of a dress that appeared to be white/gold while others saw it as blue/black. The internet went crazy asking for answers as to how two people looking at the same dress could be seeing different colors. The answer? The lighting in which the dress basically plays a trick on our retina and how we perceive color.
3.Steve Harvey Miss Universe 👨🏾🙇🏾👸🏽🚫👩🏻👸🏻 At last week’s Miss Universe pageant, Family Feud host Steve Harvey made the most epic mistake on television. After announcing Miss Columbia as the new 2015 Miss Universe, he later back tracked and said she was the runner up. The real Miss Universe 2015 title would go to Miss Philippine. The Internet exploded with memes of Harvey’s cringe worthy mistake. Harvey apologized profusely for his mistake and even poked fun at himself while posting a Christmas photo with the caption ‘Merry Easter y’all’.
2. Adele Album 🙋🏼. We’re just going to throw out a random number and see if you can find any significance in it. 3.38 million… Any ideas where we got this number? Oh, that’s just the album sales for one week of Adele’s new album ‘25’. The ‘Hello‘ announced her new album earlier this year and blessed us with her new single ‘Hello’ (which is still no. 1 on the charts). From her NBC Live In New York special and announcement of her North American and European tour to her SNL performance, self impersonation skit, and chart shattering album, Adele has owned 2015.

Here’s a recap of a few top stories in entertainment and pop-culture news in your Sunday Paper!
Just a few weeks early from Kimye’s original due date, the happy couple welcomed their second child early Saturday morning!
Kim has said that she was surprised she could get pregnant for the second time after giving birth to her first daughter North West, 2-years-old, back in June of 2013. To all of our surprise when she announced she was having a second child we couldn’t help but to be happy for the proud mama. We were even more excited when she revealed North would be having a baby brother.
Kim, 35, recently revealed having a health scare due to pregnancy complications with pre-eclampsia during her previous birth. She was told by her doctor she may have diabetes as a result of her pregnancy condition. She unveiled the information to sister Kourtney and mom Kris in a very somber moment on season 11 of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
Just a day before Kim gave birth she took to Instagram and posted a picture of her bare belly, captioning it, “Ready whenever you are lol.”
Just hours after Kim was rushed to the emergency room and gave birth. A photo of Kim and Kanye hold hands was posted to Kim’s official website announcing the birth with the caption, “Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West welcomed the arrival of their son this morning. Mother and son are doing well.” We are thinking about you too, Kanye!
Congrats to the Kardashian West Family!
Did y’all catch The Wiz?
We sure did and it was nothing short of SPECTACULAR!
The cast was star-studded with seasoned veterans like Queen Latifah (The Wiz) and David Alan Grier (Cowardly Lion) to fresh faces like Ne-Yo (Tin-Man) and Shanice Williams (Dorothy Gale).
From the whipping and nae-nae-ing to the soulful renditions of the critically-acclaimed songs that Diana Ross and Michael Jackson once sang, the entire cast was out of this world.
Critics seem to agree that NBC did a great job with the casting and production of this year’s holiday musical in comparison to years past. However, some Twitter users were upset with the upset casting because “remaking something with an all-black cast seems…a tiny bit racist. #TheWiz”. Hmm… They must have not seen the original The Wizard of OZ.
Check out these highlights from the musical below!
Dorothy Gale: Shanice Williams
Scarecrow: Elijah Kelley
David Alan Grier: The Cowardly Lion
Uzo Aduba: Glinda the Good

Adele strikes again!
Her third studio album ‘25’ has not only sold 3.38 million copies in it’s first week, but it sold another million copies in the week following. The “When We Were Young” singer smashed the previous record for most albums sold in a week which was N*SYNC’s ‘No Strings Attached’ back in 2000. That album sold a total of 2.4 million copies.
• 20th album to sell 1 million copies in a week.
• First album to sell more than three million copies in a week.
• Most records sold in a single week.
• Best First-Week sales for a female artist.
• First single to sell one million copies in a week.
• The best-selling album of 2015.
The barriers that this album has broken will be hard to top for any upcoming album. It’s safe to say ‘25’ is definitely album of the year.

“The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to be able to share new photographs of Princess Charlotte. They were taken by the Duchess in early November at their home in Norfolk,” the caption reads as Princess Charlotte is staring into the distance with a smile.
“The Duke and Duchess continue to receive warm messages about Princess Charlotte from all around the world and they hope that everyone enjoys these lovely photos as much as they do,” the caption continues.
The Princess is also seen sharing a laugh with one of her stuffed animals that has us all awh-ing. What a cutie!
Adele is officially the reigning champion of music after the release of her new album.
According to Nielsen Music “25” has sold 3.38 million copies during its first week in the U.S. This completely smashes the previous record held by *NYSNC’s “No Strings Attached” album released back in 2000.
Previously in an interview with Beats 1’s Zane Lowe, Adele thought she had missed her window for releasing new music. “25” was not being streamed on any services including Apple Music and Spotify which lead fans no choice but to purchase the album. With these record breaking numbers it’s safe to say that we will always have room in our catalogs for new Adele music.
You can purchase the deluxe edition of “25” that includes three bonus tracks from Target retailers!

Kim Kardashian opens up about some frightening news that could potentially affect her pregnancy.
The expecting mother has opened up in the past about her difficulty conceiving, but earlier this year she announced she was expecting her second child.
In a recent clip of season 11 of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Kim opens up to mom and sister about the possibility of having diabetes.
“Well, they saw a little bit more fluid than normal in my placenta which either could mean that I’m having a carbon tolerance or I have diabetes,” Kim shares.
Kim’s doctor warns that once having preeclampsia it is likely to reoccur in future pregnancies. Preeclampsia is a pregnancy condition that can result from high blood pressure that allows retention of excess fluid in the placenta.
“I’m not going to think about that too much. I’m just not,” Kim goes on to Kris and Kourtney.
Tune in to Keeping Up With The Kardashians tonight at 9 p.m. on E! to see how Kim is handling the stress of pregnancy.
She had us at “Hello” and now she has a new song that will have you feeling nostalgic.
Adele’s album “25” is set to be released this Friday following up her album “21” that was released four years ago. With Adele selling more than 11 million copies in the U.S. of her previous album we can all anticipate her new album will be just as big. “Hello” has already hit number one on the Billboard charts and has stayed their for the last three weeks beating out Justin Bieber’s album “Purpose” and One Direction’s album “Made In The A.M” both released last Friday.
The 27-year-old mum’s new single titled “When We Were Young” is a live recording that took place at The Church Studios in London. Dressed in a black, velvet blazer and hair pulled back the soul-singer is only accompanied by a small band and a few background vocalist.
Adele perfectly executes every note (as usual) and gives us a soaring chorus fully equipped with her signature finger wag. She even shows us her personality at the end as she rips the microphone from the stand like only true divas do. She blushes and comments, “It’s a whole new me!”
