In a statement, Michael says, "I think we’ve really outdone ourselves for this year’s holiday special.  I couldn’t have three bigger stars or better voices than Mary J., Mariah and Cookie Monster. We all had a great time and Cookie Monster shared his cookies with all of us."

Michael's first Christmas special aired on NBC in 2011, the same year he released his best-selling album Christmas.

Adele Treats Herself to Brand-New Porsche

Image courtesy IntensiveCourses.co.ukMost people are lucky to get an old beater for their first car.  Adele, who's had her drivers license for just over six weeks, has done a bit better than that.

According to Britain's Mirror newspaper, the 25-year-old singer's just dropped £100,000 pounds -- that's about $162,000 -- on a brand-new, fully-loaded Porsche Cayenne.

The Mirror quotes a source as saying, "She’s decided to treat herself and has joked that it’s a Christmas present after she managed to pass her test."

Adele probably bought herself a baby car seat as well, for her one-year-old son, Angelo.

TLC Talks DWTS Finale Performance & Whether They'd Ever Compete Themselves

Photo by Brad Barket/Getty Images for VH1On Monday night's finale of Dancing with the Stars, the four remaining contestants -- Glee star Amber Riley; Jack Osbourne, son of Ozzy and Sharon; High School Musical star Corbin Bleu; and comedian Bill Engvall -- will do a "samba relay" with their pro partners as TLC performs their classic "No Scrubs."  And the iconic girl group says they're not just appearing on the long-running ABC reality series because it's a promotional thing: they truly are fans of the show.

"My mom watches it all the time, so I was forced to and then I liked it. I was like 'Oh, okay,' Now I like it," T-Boz tells ABC News Radio. Both T-Boz and her band mate Chilli agree, "It's really good."

So what can fans expect from the performance on Monday night?  "A little bit of dancing, some singing, y'know, what we always do," laughs Chilli, while T-Boz says we can also expect "energy."

Despite their love for the show, T-Boz says that she's not sure she'd ever compete on it.  In fact, she has been asked to do it in the past but passed due to a medical issue.

"A long time ago, somebody said something about it to me but my knee was bad," she reveals. "You know, I'm a tomboy...[and] it's real girly stuff, you know.  It might be a little, uh, challenging."  When it's suggested that the singer could perhaps do some tomboy-style dances, she laughs, "Well, you know, that would be my special night. I might get a ten!"

Tune into ABC's Dancing with the Stars Monday night at 8 p.m. to see the ladies hit the ballroom.

Charlie Worsham Says His New Song Will Make You Drive Too Fast

Warner Music NashvilleIf you’re trying to avoid a speeding ticket, you might want to steer clear of Charlie Worsham’s new song, “Want Me Too.”  

“It’s the song on my record that’s the one, if you want to drive too fast, that’s the song,” he asserts.  

While his debut single “Could It Be” paved the way for Charlie’s success this year, the newcomer believes his latest single will do the same for 2014.

“[I’ve] got a lot of cool tour stuff in the works,” he says. “I cannot wait to get on the road next year. It looks like I’m going to be booked through October already, so [I] cannot wait.”   Charlie says he’s particularly excited about returning to the college scene in the early spring. “It’s been a great market for me going around and playing campuses," he says.  "[I] played the Oklahoma State University Homecoming and [Texas Christian University] down in Texas.”  

Both Charlie’s hit “Could It Be” and “Want Me Too” are on his debut CD, Rubberband.

American Music Awards Backstage Report

Facebook.com/TaylorSwiftTaylor Swift brought home four trophies Sunday night at the American Music Awards, including the prestigious Artist of the Year award, for a record third time.  All in all, she's now won 14 American Music Awards.

Backstage after the show, Taylor admitted to ABC that no matter how many times she goes up to the podium, she can't remember accepting awards. “It's a crazy thing to happen to you: like, I never get used to it. I legitimately black out. It's a scary thing 'cause I don't know what I'm saying, and then afterward I ask people, "Like, like, did I, did I like, did...What happened?"

Taylor describes winning the Artist of the Year trophy for the third time as “kind of mind-numbingly unbelievable and...a little bit hard to absorb.”

Taylor said the fact that it's fans voting “makes it that much better.”

Taylor has won numerous awards during her career.  When asked by ABC where she puts the awards at home, the singer replied, “All over the place. In bookshelves, in my kitchen, anywhere there's a surface I can put it on.”

Taylor also said backstage that her next album is “really looking promising so far.”

Jennifer Lopez spoke backstage about the elaborate song and dance routine she did in tribute to late Latin music legend Celia Cruz. Lopez told ABC she believes the tribute was host PitBull's idea.  “I think it was actually Pitbull's idea to do the homage. They had been talking, he had been talking with the producers about doing it maybe for the Latin Grammys and they were like ‘Why doing we do it for the American Music Awards’ and he was like, ‘Even Better.’”

TLC performed their hit "Waterfalls," with Lil Mama filling in for the late Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes. Backstage, the group was asked about a rumor that they'd perform with a hologram of Lopes.  The ladies said they “emotionally, honestly...can't deal” with the idea of Lopes standing there.  The ladies said it's “just way too much right now.”

Dr. Conrad Murray Says He Loved Michael Jackson; Tried to Wean Him Off Propofol

Kevork Djansezian/Getty ImagesIn a paid interview with Australia's channel 9 TV station, Conrad Murray -- Michael Jackson's former personal doctor and the man who spent two years in prison after being convicted of involuntary manslaughter in the 2009 death of the King of Pop -- insisted he tried to save the star's life.

Murray called Jackson a "drug addict" and insisted the fault for the lethal dose of the powerful anesthetic propofol that killed Jackson rests with the late singer. "I did not agree with Michael on using such a powerful sedative for sleep," Murray insisted in the interview, for which he received an undisclosed fee. "So what I told Michael was that, 'We have to get you off this substance.'" Murray says despite his best intentions, however, "Michael Jackson is not a guy you can just say: 'Stop it.'"

Murray again reiterated what his defense said during his trial, that it was the performer himself who administered the lethal dose. "I was not present when Michael Jackson took matters in his own hands," Murray said. "Michael Jackson, as you have realized now, is a drug addict."

The interview also covered another controversial topic about the King of Pop: whether or not he abused children, despite his 2005 acquittal on child sex charges.

When Channel Nine presenter Liz Hayes asked, 'Do you think [Jackson] was a pedophile?" Murray paused for 15 seconds before saying, "I’m not prepared to answer that question, not now. And I tell you the reason why -- because my interview with you is candid and honest, and I will not make up or fabricate anything...I'll never be unfair to Michael and I'm not here to destroy Michael. You asked a question and I'm not prepared to answer -- not now.'"

Murray also gave an interview with Britain's Daily Mail newspaper in which he described the singer as living in a smelly room that he didn't allow housekeepers to enter, and that he wore a catheter during the night -- which the former doctor inserted himself -- because Jackson was incontinent.

Murray insisted that he "loved" Jackson -- who apparently predicted the disgraced former doctor would be among the last to see him alive. "You know, for the rest of your life and my life our names will become inseparable." Murray claimed Jackson said, "I'm clairvoyant."

Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus Among "GQ's" "Least Influential People"

Image Courtesy Justin Bieber via TwitterJustin Bieber and Miley Cyrus shouldn't feel honored to be included on a new end-of-the-year list from GQ magazine. They have been named two of the "25 least influential people of 2013."

Miley, who twerked up a storm of controversy at the MTV Video Music Awards last summer, is chastised for her provocative ways. The author of the GQ list writes, "Miley spent the entire year...basically trying every inane strategy she could think of to rile up America's few remaining pearl clutchers. What's sad is that it totally worked."

Justin is called out for his penchant of making trouble in public. GQ states, "When you're a just-legal megastar raising hell and being a brat, people will still give you a chance. They'll blame the money and the fame and probably your parents. But once you lose the baby fat, there are no viable excuses."

The top-ranking celebrity on the list is basketball player-turned-Celebrity Apprentice contestant-turned "diplomat" Dennis Rodman, who's visited North Korea and befriended dictator Kim Jong-un.

Paula Deen, Will Smith and his family, Lady Gaga, and Ryan Reynolds also made the cut.

Miley's Home Burglarized

RCA RecordsMiley Cyrus' birthday weekend was spoiled by a burglary at her Los Angeles home. Police tell Us Weekly that property was taken from Miley's residence on Friday afternoon.

No one was home at the time of the theft. A source tells the magazine, "She's extremely upset and a lot of personal items were stolen." The insider adds, "She's really shaken up about the whole thing."

Miley turned 21 on Saturday. Her father, Billy Ray Cyrus, sure spoiled her for her big day: he bought her a 24-thousand-dollar, customized Can Am Spyder, according to TMZ. Her initials are printed on the front of the three-wheel motorcycle.

Miley performed at the American Music Awards, held in L.A., on Sunday night.

Mick Jagger Set to Become a Great-Grandfather

Image Courtesy Mick Jagger via InstagramHere's some great news for Mick Jagger: he's set to become a great-grandfather.

The Rolling Stones frontman's 21-year-old granddaughter, Assisi, is expecting a child early next year, according to her mom. Jade -- Mick's 42-year-old daughter -- tells Britain's The Sunday Times, “It is true. I am going to be a grandmother.”

Jade doesn't expect Mick's life to change dramatically as a great-grandfather. She says, "I think making Mick a grandfather obvious has a big impact whereas, now, making him a great-grandfather is no longer particularly fascinating."  

The news confirms reports from earlier this fall that Assisi was expecting.

Mick, 70, has seven children from various marriages and relationships, and four grandchildren.

Willie Nelson’s Band Tour Bus Crashes in Texas

Three of Willie Nelson’s bandmates were hospitalized and Willie's tour was suspended after the band’s tour bus crashed Saturday morning near Sulphur Springs, Texas.

Willie Nelson’s team issued a statement on their website and Facebook page saying that icy conditions were to blame for the accident, which occurred at 3:30 a.m. on a bridge off Interstate 30, approximately 80 miles northeast of Dallas.

“Willie Nelson’s band bus (not Willie’s bus) was in an accident overnight on icy I-30. Three members of the family were hospitalized. Additional information will be released as we get it,” the statement said.

Image credit: David McClisterA spokeswoman with the Texas Department of Public Safety confirmed that Willie was not on the bus and that the driver of the bus was struggling to navigate through heavy rain and strong winds before the vehicle crashed into a bridge pillar.

Police say three band members were injured, one of them seriously.

Drummer Robert Paul English sustained the most serious injury -- a broken hip -- while bandmates Billie Jean English and Thomas Ray Hawkins received only a few bumps and bruises.

Willie's rep confirms all three have since been released from the hospital.

Willie was scheduled to perform at the Horseshoe Casino in Tunica, Mississippi, on Saturday night, but the concert was postponed, along with his last four dates in November. The tour will resume December 10, in Las Vegas.

Lady Gaga Talks About Her "Hidden Weirdo" Boyfriend, Gets Serious About Fame on "Ellen DeGeneres"

EllenTV.comLady Gaga's been dating actor Taylor Kinney since 2011, and while on the surface, the two seem very different, Gaga tells Ellen DeGeneres that deep down, he's just as weird as she is.

On Monday's edition of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Gaga says of Kinney, the star of NBC's Chicago Fire, "He's a hidden weirdo. He is extremely strange, actually, and we compliment each other's weirdness."

"That's actually one of the first things he ever said to me," she explains. "It's a Dr. Seuss quote, that you find in someone else a compatible weirdness."  She goes on to say that when the two are together, they do normal things like "eat pizza and watch TV," and, she adds, "I play him my next single and ask him if he likes it." "That's just our normal life," she tells Ellen. "At the end of the day, he's my best friend, and having your lover be your best friend is...I mean, it's the best thing ever!"

But the conversation also takes a serious turn when Gaga talks about how her friend Elton John worries about her because she's struggled with both drugs and alcohol; she explains that she used them to retreat from friends and family because of the pressures of fame.  Speaking about one of her new songs, called "Dope," Gaga describes it as, "essentially an 'I'm sorry' to my fans, to my parents, to my lover, and I'm saying I'm sorry that I withdrew so much."

"I guess that's kind of a really personal thing for me to talk about but here we are," Gaga tells Ellen, adding that when she first became famous, she felt "very misunderstood," and had "a need to withdraw from people around me and from the world."  Why did she feel misunderstood?  Because, she says, nobody seemed to understand that all her nutty outfits and bizarre performances are expressions of her real personality, and not some marketing scheme to grab headlines or sell albums.

"I don't dress any particular way to impress anyone or market myself for my music; it's actually who I am and whether that makes me crazy or insane, I don't know, but it's my truth," Gaga explained to Ellen. "So I'd rather just be open about my own insanity than allow anyone to think that I'm, like, in a room somewhere generating what next thing I'm gonna shock you with.  That's not what I do."

What she does do, Gaga says, is "make records that I hope will touch one fan's life, that one person [who] feels this same sort of insanity that I feel."

George Jones Honored with All-Star Tribute Concert in Nashville

Webster PRThe stars were out in full force for Friday night's George Jones tribute concert at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena. The concert, called Playin' Possum: The Final No Show, featured performances from more than 100 artists including Alan Jackson on Jones' signature song "He Stopped Loving Her Today."  George Strait delivered his take on "The Grand Tour" and welcomed Martina McBride for one of Jones' duets with Tammy Wynette, "Golden Ring."

Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood were on hand to sing "Take Me," and Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton teamed up for a performance of "These Days (I Barely Get By)." Eric Church sang a solo, acoustic version of Jones' hit "Choices," and Brad Paisley got the crowd going with "The One I Loved Back Then (The Corvette Song)." Dierks Bentley offered a tender take on "I Always Get Lucky with You," and Vince Gill sang the Jones/James Taylor-penned hit, "Bartenders Blues."

Big & Rich kicked the evening off riding onstage on lawn mowers as a nod to the time George Jones rode his mower to the bar when then-wife Tammy Wynette took his keys away to keep him from drinking. An empty rocking chair was onstage the entire show to signify Jones' 1992 hit, "I Don't Need Your Rockin' Chair."

Emmylou Harris, Patty Loveless, Josh Turner, Thompson Square, Jamey Johnson, Rodney Atkins, Lorrie Morgan and even Megadeth were among the other acts on the bill for Friday night's show. Reba was slated to perform but had to bow out at the last minute due to vocal issues.

The concert was planned as the finale of George Jones' farewell tour. When he passed away in April, the event was revamped as an all-star tribute to Jones.

Christine McVie Says She'd Rejoin Fleetwood Mac "If They Were to Ask Me" 

David M. Bennett/Getty ImagesChristine McVie left Fleetwood Mac in 1998, so fans were thrilled when she sat in on a few of their recent concerts in the U.K.  Now, the woman who wrote "Don't Stop" and "Say That You Love Me" says that she might be interested in getting back together with her old mates permanently....if they're interested, that is.

Speaking to the British paper The Guardian, Christine says, "I like being with the band, the whole idea of playing music with them. I miss them all. If they were to ask me I would probably be very delighted…but it hasn't happened so we'll have to wait and see."

"It was amazing, like I'd never left," she says of her recent guest spot with the band. "I climbed back on there again and there they were, the same old faces on stage."

Explaining why she left Fleetwood Mac in the first place, the keyboardist and singer says, "I think I was just music'd out."  She's spent the past decade living what The Guardian describes as "a reclusive life" in a mansion in the British countryside, but now, it appears, she's undergone a change of heart.  "I suffered from some kind of delusion that I wanted to be an English country girl," she tells the paper. "And it took me 15 years to realize that it's not really what I wanted at all."

While Stevie Nicks has said repeatedly that she'd love to have Christine back in the group, the paper notes that some reports have suggested that guitarist Lindsey Buckingham is against the idea, because she'd steal the spotlight.  Calling that argument "fair enough," Christine says, "From his point of view, it was a business thing...They obviously wanted headlines about them, not me, and I quite agree with that."

But that doesn't mean that Christine won't return to the Mac -- it just may take some time.  For one thing, her ex-husband, bass player John McVie, was recently diagnosed with cancer, and the band has temporarily halted its tour so he can receive treatment.  Calling his prognosis "really good," Christine tells the Guardian, "He's having his treatment in L.A. right now, but they caught it really early so he should be up and running in a couple of months."

So Christine concedes that her return to the band is "a long way down that path if it ever were to happen," adding, "John's got to get well first, so it hasn't been talked about. We'll have to wait and see."
