20 MORE Amazing Songs About Butts

By Chris Carpenter (@chriscarplive)

Last year—after many grueling hours of scientific research and consultations with booty experts—we compiled a list of the 15 greatest songs about butts. However, with so much booty in this world (right, Kim Kardashian?) we think it’s time to wow you with 20 more great songs about butts. (Jingle, jingle. Christmas came early, booty lovers.) While our original list is still pretty great (awesome, even) – we regretfully left out a few wondrous jams dedicated to juicy derrieres. The booties were super sad about that. Our bad! And being alive during a booty-obsessed year (right, Amber Rose?)—where Jason Derulo begged butts worldwide to do some wiggling and J.Lo and Iggy Azeala’s moneymakers went cheek-to-cheek in the steamy “Booty” video—it’s only right that we pay homage to newfangled, booty-inspired, musical masterpieces. So. Many. Bums.

20 Years Later, “All I Want For Christmas Is You” May Be The Greatest Song Ever Written

mc_xmas
It’s now December, the time when holiday panic overload sets in. Christmas music has begun infiltrating the airwaves, subtly at first, occasionally breaking up the Top 40 rotation, but getting more frequent as the days go on. Retail stores, cars, elevators…it’s everywhere! You’re reaching a breaking point until a song comes on that stops you dead in your tracks.
You know the one. It starts out with a cute little chime, a little jingle, opens up with brassy vocals and your eyes grow two sizes bigger just like the Grinch’s heart. You immediately don’t feel so bad maxing out credit cards, buying all the things and working all the hours to make Christmas happen. After 20 years, Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You” may very well be still be the greatest Christmas song of all time.

“Madonna” Talks Bill Cosby, Aaliyah, Jennifer Lopez and Iggy Azalea

Here we go AGAIN! 
 
I have nothing but respect for Madge, but how many times must she discuss me? I mean, of course I am the Queen of the Monsters and she is the Queen of What….Anyway, I enjoy her little “Relevlog”. To expound on what I meant by that: relevance + video + blog = relevlog. Whatever floats your boat or in Madonna’s case, whatever floats her………but I digress.

Is Ariana Grande Coming For Mariah Carey’s Christmas Queen Crown With “Santa Tell Me”?

Ariana Grande released a new Christmas single, “Santa Tell Me,” today, and it’s as “kewt” as she said it would be. The festive love song doesn’t quite show off her vocal prowess as much as her performance at last night’s American Music Awards did, but the pop princess is nevertheless prepping us all for the holiday season. Though “Santa Tell Me” radiates her happy-go-lucky style, we can’t help but compare the single to the untouchable Christmas anthem “All I Want For Christmas Is You” by her idol, Mariah Carey. Is Grande coming for Carey’s long-term reign as Christmas Queen?
