Carey, 54, performed “All I Want for Christmas Is You” for the first time at an awards show.

Monroe and Moroccan, meanwhile, sat off to the side during the performance. They took center stage when Carey received her gold statue.

“Congratulations, Mom!” both said as they presented her with the trophy.

The 2023 Billboard Music Awards looked different this year, but the stars still brought their stylish looks to the red carpet. The BBMAs were streamed on Sunday, November 19. Rather than a traditional ceremony in one location with a host, the awards show included several musical performances filmed in different locations with fans surrounding the […]

The singer, who shares her kids with ex-husband Nick Cannon, touched on her long history with Billboard during her acceptance speech.

“Billboard has been an integral part of my life for a very long time now,” Carey said. “Even though I don’t acknowledge time, I kind of have to admit that some of my most memorable times in my career are connected to Billboard and the BBMAs. One thing I really have to say that I’m really grateful for is the fact that my fans have been here with me through the hits, through the misses, the No. 1s and the Bubbling Unders.”

The award honors her iconic holiday jingle, which has been climbing to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 every year since 2019. The accomplishment is particularly impressive for a song that debuted in 1994.

“I love you so much this award is particularly special to me because the song itself changed my entire life. When I first sat down to write ‘All I Want for Christmas Is You,’ I never could and imagined I’d be standing here three months later, accepting a special award for it,” she quipped, making the audience laugh.

Crushing coparenting! Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon have been amicably raising their twins, Moroccan and Monroe, since their 2014 split. The “We Belong Together” singer gave birth to the former couple’s little ones in April 2011, six months after Carey confirmed her pregnancy. “Yes, we are pregnant. It is true,” the New York native told […]

“So I just want to say thank you to everyone who has allowed this song to be part of their holiday soundtrack each year,” Carey added. “I’m so honored to be receiving this award for this little song’s chart achievements, but the greatest achievement for me is being here with all of you and feeling the love that only music can generate.”

Carey’s appearance with her kids at the BBMAs follows Monroe’s performance at her mom’s sold-out holiday concert in Los Angeles on Friday, November 17. She joined Carey to perform “Jesus Born on This Day” and also showed off her skills during a cover of The Waitresses’ “Christmas Wrapping,” per social media footage shared by Kim Kardashian.

Gerry Turner Gets ENGAGED on Golden Bachelor Finale. And Gets an ABC Wedding Special! on December 1, 2023 at 11:35 am The Hollywood Gossip

Based on a shocking recent report, Gerry Turner may be a dirtball.

But even if that’s the case, here’s the thing:

Gerry Turner is now a very happy and quite smitten dirtball!

The 72-year old wrapped up his Golden Bachelor journey on Thursday night in Costa Rica … receiving assistance from daughters Jenny and Angie and granddaughters Payton and Charlie to help him choose between finalists Leslie Fhima and Theresa Nist.

Nist grew emotional early on upon meeting her potential future in-laws, telling Gerry’s kids of how she lost her husband to kidney failure:

“I went through pretty much what your dad went through, the grieving and the mourning.”

After awkwardly avoiding questions about his Fantasy Suite evening with Theresa, Gerry told his daughters he really likes “being around” Nist.

The two then shared a kiss and exchanged “I love yous” before concluding the night.

On his final date with Theresa, the love birds talked openly about their late spouses, while Turner acknowledged the strange situation he was in.

“There’s not gonna be an easy way when two wonderful women are standing there and there’s one rose,” he said to Theresa.

“That’s a pretty binary situation.”

Turner vowed only to select Nist if he was “1,000%” certain about her.

For her part, Leslie emphasized her dedication to Gerry when speaking to his children.

“’Till death do us part, that’s all I ever wanted,” Leslie said. “He is the man of my dreams, he really is.”

Unfortunately, Leslie noted a change in Turner’s “mannerisms” when they met up, an observation that proved to be prescient.

In what way?

On their date, Turner told Leslie the following, as straightforwardly as he could:

“It’s been difficult. And I’ve kind of made a decision about how I want to go about this. And I have fallen in love with Theresa. And that’s the direction I’m going to take.”

Leslie was upset. She was bitter. But she was also glad to be dumped before fitting herself into a fancy dress and getting her hopes up for a proposal.

“I took a really good person and f-cking broke their heart,” Gerry said to host Jesse Palmer.

“I hate myself and I hate everything right now. I think the only time I’ve ever felt worse in my whole life is when my wife passed away and this is a Goddamn close second. She’s a good person and I f-cked her over.”

Turner shifted his focus to Theresa on engagement day, however, first referencing his late wife in front of the camera.

“When I looked towards the volcano, I was asking Toni if this was the right thing to do,” he said on air. “I’m saying a prayer, and my prayers go to her.”

Once he met up with Theresa, Turner laid it all out for her.

“I came to the realization that you’re not the right person for me to live with,” he told Nist. “You’re the person that I can’t live without. I love you 1,000%.”

Gerry got down on one knee… popped the monumental question… and Theresa accepted!

Back in the studio, Palmer surprised the couple with a trip to Italy, as Gerry suggested they could use it as a honeymoon after he and Theresa exchanged vows, which they wanted to do as soon as possible.

“We’re going to do it as quickly as we can because at our age, we don’t have a lot of time to waste,” Gerry said.

This led to the final announcement of the night:

“Gerry and Theresa are getting married and guess what, we’re invited to the wedding because it will be live on ABC January 4.”

So there you have it!

The Golden Wedding will air January 4 at 8/7c on ABC.

NFL’s Tony Gonzalez Praises Taylor Swift for Bringing New Fans to Football on December 1, 2023 at 3:48 am Us Weekly

NFL Hall of Famer Tony Gonzalez praised Taylor Swift for shining a light on America’s favorite pastime through her romance with Travis Kelce.

“I think it’s great that Taylor’s done this for the NFL,” Gonzalez, 47, said during a Thursday, November 30, appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show. “She’s brought a whole new audience, it’s been great.”

Gonzalez recalled recently being in the airport when a 10-year-old girl approached him to say hello. “Usually men come up to me, occasionally a woman, but I was like, ‘Oh, a 10-year-old girl? How cool I’m getting so popular,’” he quipped about the exchange. “She goes, ‘Hi, Is your name Tony? Do you know Travis Kelce?’”

Gonzalez played in the NFL for 17 seasons before his retirement in 2013. The athlete spent his first 12 seasons as a tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs, the same team as Swift’s boyfriend Kelce, 34, before later joining the Atlanta Falcons. He finished his career with 14 Pro Bowl selections, six first-team All-Pros and was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2019.

Taylor Swift is sparking the interest of the NFL’s biggest stars — and we’re not just talking about Travis Kelce. New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers, for one, attended multiple dates of Swift’s Eras Tour when the show came through East Rutherford, NJ in May 2023. “I’m very proud of my dancing skills finally being […]

Earlier this week, Kelce made headlines when he reached 11,000 receiving yards in the fewest number of games as a tight end, breaking a record previously held by Gonzalez. At the time, Gonzalez took to social media to congratulate his former teammate, writing via X (formerly Twitter), “Congrats and well earned my friend! Keep it going @tkelce.”

Gonzalez wasn’t the only one to celebrate Kelce’s big moment. Swift, 33, also showed her support by “liking” an Instagram post shared by the Kansas City Chiefs about the milestone. “Fastest tight end to 11k receiving yards AND the only player in franchise history to do it ,” the post read.

Kelce and Swift were first linked in September, when the Grammy winner accepted Kelce’s offer to see him “rock the field” at Arrowhead Stadium in his game against the Chicago Bears. She has since appeared at four Chiefs games throughout the 2023-2024 season. Kelce has also been spotted cheering Swift on as she travels the globe for the international leg of her record-breaking Eras Tour.

The pair’s relationship have since taken the world by storm, with everyone from fellow celebrities to the NFL itself gushing over their blossoming romance. Even Swift’s closest pals are excited about about the duo finding each other.

“Friends close to Taylor and Travis think they make an amazing power couple, and they couldn’t be happier for them,” an insider exclusively told Us Weekly in October. Later that month, a second insider added that Swift’s inner circle thinks she and Kelce are “in love.”

As for Swift and Kelce, the couple have “very detailed plans” on staying close while “she’s on tour and he has games,” a third insider told Us earlier this month. “They don’t want to start their relationship off with big gaps [in time spent apart]. They’re trying to be as much like a regular couple as possible.”

It seems as if (almost) all of Hollywood and the NFL are in need of Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce friendship bracelets. Ever since Kelce tried to meet Swift at one of her Eras Tour performances in July 2023 — he wanted to give her a friendship bracelet with his number on it, but she had […]

That likely includes getting their families together around the holidays. While Taylor has met both of Kelce’s parents — and the NFL star has spent time with the singer’s father — the pair are still hoping to spend some time with each other’s loved ones.

“Taylor and Travis have spent time with each other’s families so it only makes sense that they’d want their parents to meet one another,” a fourth insider told Us. “Both of them have a very close relationship with their parents, and it’s really important that their families blend seamlessly.”
