Meghan Markle Rocks Sexy Santa Outfit, Reminds Us Prince Harry Is a Lucky Man

Before Meghan Markle met Prince Harry and became future royalty, she was just another Los Angeles-based model and actress with dreams of success and stardom.

Sure, she enjoyed some pre-Harry success and lived out every young girl’s dream of starring in a USA Network legal drama, but like so many others struggling to make it in Hollywood, Meghan had to pay her dues.

And in her case, that meant holding a briefcase and pretending to be amused by Howie Mandel.

Fortunately, Deal or No Deal was taken off the air due to a government probe into the inhumane demands of its producers.

Or it was canceled because everyone got sick of watching a super-elaborate version of “guess how many fingers I’m holding behind my back.”

We forget which.

Whatever the case (pun fully intended), there’s been a resurgence of interest in the show now that one of its former models is soon to become a royal.

And this week, the retroactive ogling has taken on a seasonal tone, thanks to this photo of Meghan wearing a sexy Santa outfit.

Unlike the other girls, Meghan seems to be genuinely enjoying Howie’s antics in this pic, which is a testament to her acting ability.

It’s also a reminder that Meghan is the opposite of a stuffy royal, which is probably exactly why Harry was drawn to her.

And of course, like the now-famous photo of her in college, this pic reminds us that Meghan hasn’t aged, and presumably will never age.

That’s also a pretty nice bonus for ya boy Harold.

In a way, we suppose being a briefcase girl on Deal or No Deal is pretty good preparatin for life as a royal.

You have to spend a lot of time standing around and pretending you’re not bored out of your mind.

You have to feign joy whenever the peasants get all excited.

And of course, you have to await the deaths of those more powerful than yourself, so that you can move up the briefcase girl line of succession.

We’re pretty sure that’s how it works.

The important thing is, Meghan proved that the always-questionable sexy Santa get-up can work under certain circumstances, and for that, we thank her.

Kesha’s New Video, Praying, Reminds the World She’s Divine

Jerry Seinfeld has never been less relatable than when he refused to hug Kesha. Because she's wonderful.

The "Tik Tok" singer has been locked in a legal battle with Dr. Luke, whom she accuses of years of sexual abuse, and her music career has been on hiatus. Reportedly, Kesha's been desperate to get back to work and get her new music out there.

And now we have her new song, "Praying," along with it's vibrant and captivating video, below. We're not going to use the word "shooketh" but that would be an accurate description. Watch for yourself and see what we mean.

Kesha has been taking back her life, piece by piece, and this music video seems like exactly the comeback that she's wanted and needed all along.

Actually, let's be real — it's also the comeback that we've needed from her.

Visually, Kesha takes us on a spiritual and perhaps religious journey.

(Spirituality and religion are related, but in a Venn Diagram sort of way)

Suffice it to say that the symbolism and imagery is not subtle.

Kesha appears to be dreaming or hallucinating or spiritually projecting or whatever while adrift at sea, stranded and weak and lamenting that she can't even seem to die to end the suffering, all in black and white.

On land, in color, she slumbers in colorful attire while two men in business suits wearing pigs heads (it is wildly unsettling, you guys) stand over her, thick drool dribbling from their open mouths.

We see Kesha, conscious, in multiple contexts and costumes.

In one, she's dressed as an angel and playing a keyboard and singing.

We also see her walking past a row of old-timey televisions that each have white signs for screens, some with horrible messages that she's likely received on social media (body-shaming, political nastiness, etc), and others with typical dystopian messages (like "CONSUME").

Among her other outfits is a veil with little butterflies all over it, but honestly our favorite costume for the whole video has to be the one with golden feathers that form a collar.

(Quite frankly it looks like something that Ravenna would wear, which is peak fashion goals)

She smashes one of those dystopian television signs — one that reads "Weapons of Mass Deception."

Cute, right?

She also is chased by and fights off the pig-heads.

The music picks up and her powerful vocals become impossible to miss.

And no spoilers but the ending involves both a whale and a rainbow.

First and foremost, we should probably talk about some obvious influences.

Because you can't really talk about "Praying" without talking about Beyonce's Lemonade.

The use of color isn't new for Kesha, but the still and quiet opening with poetic narration?

That's straight out of the Lemonade playbook.

To be clear, we're not accusing Kesha of copying Beyonce, precisely.

Great artists — truly great artists — inspire others to follow in their footsteps, creating new trends and styles in the process.

We'd never in our lives seen anything like the journey that watching Lemonade took us on.

But Kesha's adventure is very different.

The setting is much more whimsical, and the subject matter is entirely different.

As the music builds, Kesha — even the version of her on a raft — seems to have some sort of spiritual awakening.

In a sense, that's what the whole song and video are about (among other things).

In terms of the religious imagery that you'll see, it sort of falls into that trap that a lot of (but not all) New Age-y spirituality does.

Like, Christian imagery absolutely takes center-stage, which is too much for most religious minorities.

But then the presence of non-Christian imagery and some of the more agnostic lyrics won't win over many Christians, either.

You know, though, you don't always have to appeal to everyone in every thing that you do.

Art is ultimately about self-expression and communicating that to others.

Kesha does that very successfully with "Praying," in terms of both the song and the video.

We've always known that Kesha is beautiful and has an amazing voice.

But in case you'd somehow forgotten, this music video will make it hard to miss.

Watch and enjoy for yourself.

We've already watched it a half-dozen times, easily.

Alex Jones Secretly Recorded Megyn Kelly Interview, Reminds World Why You Should Never Interview Alex Jones

As you’ve likely heard by now, a controversial interview between Megyn Kelly and Alex Jones will air on Kelly’s new NBC newsmagazine Sunday night.

If you’re unfamiliar with Jones, buckle in, for this man’s batsh-t insanity cannot be exaggerated, and it’s difficult to know where to start when describing a loon so deeply mired in far-right conspiracy theories that even the folks at Breitbart prefer to keep their distance.

It’s unfortunate that there’s not an app (that we know of) that lets you find the nearest flakka or bath salts dealer in you neighborhood, because just hanging out outside and conducting exit interviews with some of the customers would give you a good idea of Alex Jones’ belief system.

Jones espouses the usual nut job conspiracy theories (9/11 was an inside job; global warming is a Chinese hoax; we’re all basically living in the Matrix thanks to global, George Soros-funded network of Blue Pill-munching cucks, etc.), but he also takes his escaped mental patient routine several steps further with some beliefs that are just *kisses fingertips like an Italian chef* deliciously bonkers:

Jones believes a network of humanoid lizards runs our global banking system; he thinks that Hillary Clinton is mass murderer who has “personally chopped up bodies”; he’s a proponent of the debunked #Pizzagate child sex ring theory (in which he also believes Clinton is involved); and most disgustingly of all Jones believes the 2012 Sandy Hook massacre was faked in order to put pressure on anti-gun control lobbyists.

Yes, Jones looks at the grieving parents of 20 6- and 7-year-old children who were murdered in their classroom and believes they’re faking it as part of a left wing plot to cripple the NRA.

It’s a revolting belief that’s sent even some of Jones’ most unhinged followers scrambling for saner pastures.

But it didn’t stop Kelly from giving Jones a platform on a major network in primetime, and therein lies the problem.

Already Kelly has already lost advertisers and been fired from a speaking engagement at a benefit for Sandy Hook families.

And doesn’t look as though the backlash will be letting up any time soon.

Part of the problem is that Kelly doesn’t seem to have done her research on Jones.

If she had, she might have known that he recently called her an “old tranny globalist” during an interview with Joe Rogan.

And she also might have known about his bad habit of stabbing fellow “journalists” in the back.

Jones revealed this week that he secretly recorded his interview with Kelly and that he plans to release it in order to undermine what he feels will be a heavily-edited attack piece put out by NBC.

Jones says his recording will expose Kelly as a fraud:

“God, she was like, ‘I want to get steaks with you, I’m obsessed with you, oh my God,’ wiggling around in her seat. It was all crap,” he explained in a recent YouTube clip.

“I knew it was all a lie. I said Sandy Hook happened, and she wouldn’t even put it in the promo pieces.”

He added:

“So we’re going to release, oh yeah, we’re going to release the pre-interview. And then when they put their fraud out on Sunday — which I’ve asked them not to air because they’re misrepresenting who I am and saying I’m as bad as Saddam Hussein, or Jeffrey Dahmer, or Charles Manson — we’ve got the whole interviews here … We’ve got it all … It’s all going to come out.”

Yes, Megyn Kelly has finally managed to move on from her bizarre feud with Donald Trump, and now she’s being targeted by the Internet’s Number One Nut Job, Alex Jones.

Of course, this is the woman who famously went on an on-air tirade arguing that Santa should only be decpicted as white, so we’re not exactly brimming with compassion.

Kate Middleton Comforts Mother of Autistic Boy, Reminds Us That She’s Awesome

The UK doesn’t celebrate Thanksgiving, as it would be sort of weird to commemorate the day a bunch of religious fanatics fled their shores in a rickety boat just to crash into a rock a few hundred miles north of their destination two months later.

But that doesn’t mean we can’t pout out some gravy for out brother Brits who shan’t be enjoying their own four-day weekend.

And while we’re at it, let’s take some time to offer thanks for the precious gift that is Kate Middleton.

While the rumors that Kate is pregnant with baby number three are almost certainly bogus, she gives us plenty to be grateful for everyday.

Though her actual coronation may still be some time off, she still gives us plenty of reason to shout, “Yaaaaas, queen!”

Take Kate’s actions at a recent children’s charity event in London, for example.

Witnesses say a woman named Ceri Knapton was moved to tears while listening to her 13-year-old son, Ethan, describe how he uses his own struggles with Autism and Asperger Syndrome to raise awareness and educate others.

“I vowed that I wouldn’t cry but was just overcome listening to Ethan,” Knapton told reporters afterward.

“The Duchess just leaned over and said to me ‘I’ve got to give you a hug as a mum.’ I couldn’t believe it. It was such a kind gesture.”

Yes, you might not know this, but the royals don’t have a reputation for being the most sentimental, approachable lot.

But Kate by all accounts, Kate seemed genuinely moved as she embraced the Knaptons and encouraged them to continue sharing their stories.

“It was a very difficult time but my diagnosis helped me to cope with what I was experiencing,” Ethan said.

“I decided that I wanted to speak out about it.There is no point in sitting back. I’d rather stand up and make a difference.”

Sources say Kate even spoke a bit about her own family, informing those in attendance that Prince George is into dinosaurs these days, with the T-rex being his favorite.

Sadly, she didn’t offer any new details about Prince Harry’s relationship with Meghan Markle.

Hey, it’s a touching story, but we’re still a gossip site, ya know?
