Mariah Carey Announces ‘All I Want for Christmas Is You’ Animated Movie

Mariah Carey’s classic “All I Want for Christmas Is You” is turning into an animated movie.

Production has started on the CGI film, boasting a cast of voice actors that includes Henry Winkler, Lacey Chabert, Breanna Yde, Phil Morris, Laya Hayes, and Keiko Agena.

Aside from being an executive producer with her manager Stella Bulochnikov, Mariah will also be the home entertainment release’s narrator, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The film is based on MC’s 2015 children’s book of the same name. Yde will voice a young Mariah who wants a puppy named Princess for Christmas. In order to get her, she has to doggy-sit a handful of a dog named Jack.

“I am thrilled to be able to bring the story of the song to new generations of families,” said Carey.

Since its 1994 release, “All I Want for Christmas Is You” has been a holiday staple, annually making its mark on the music world with a spike in sales and streams.

Mariah is currently working on her 14th studio album with the help of Jermaine Dupri. Last month, JD told Rap-Up that the project may include a collaboration with Bryson Tiller along with her YG-assisted single “I Don’t.”

“We got way more records,” said JD. “My thing was to get her to do something that don’t sound like a Mariah Carey record. We did so many records; it’s just trying to give people something different. Something that will be refreshing.”

Russell Westbrook on Scuffle with Steph Curry: I'm Protecting My Teammate

Russell Westbrook and Steph Curry were involved in what amounted to a relatively banal scuffle last night in an ultimately one-sided matchup between the Golden State Warriors and the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Russell commented on the scrap post-game. “I’m protecting my teammates,” Russ said, “Once I see something going down with my teammates, I’m hopping in.”

Adrien Broner Says God Finessed Him on His Feet

Adrien Broner has been having a lot of fun on social media of late, incorporating some self-deprecating humor in with the content that gives fans on Instagram a glimpse into his flossy, party life-style when he is not sharing his moments family. All of the trappings of fame don’t come without hard work, and although he is known to have built a fortune using his fist, followers could’ve only imagined how much wear and tear Broner’s feet incur, until he showed them.

On Monday, March 20, those who regularly check in on the Cincinnati boxer woke up to Broner expressing a debt of gratitude to those who kept him in their thoughts through the night, writing, “Thank everybody who put my feet in they prayer this morning. I appreciate it.” Hours prior to writing the message AB took a bit of time to sarcastically acknowledge the creator for blessing him with his lower extremities, while captioning a photo of his feet with the words, “I’m Blessed to be in this position In my life but GOD finessed me on my feet……. #StillGotLoveForUDoe.”

Judging by comments left on the post, one quick glance at the four division champion’s “tetris toes” [as one person called them] was all most needed to never want to turn an eye toward them ever again. They would also draw “jail house feet” and a bevy of other monikers and unflattering adjectives. But all jokes aside it was one particular response that highlight’s what the imagine likely boils down to, and it read: “million dollar toes bruh. Lol gotta pay the Price. Success not free.”

Russell Westbrook and Steph Curry Get In a Shoving Match Over Samaj Christon

Tensions nearly boiled over between the Warriors and Thunder at Oklahoma City on Monday, March 20. With only 05.3 seconds left in the first half, each of the teams’ starters drew close to the key on OKC’s end of the court for a jump ball, when an altercation suddenly broke out between Stephen Curry and Semaj Christon.

Frustrations were high as it is for the Thunder, when the drama ensued, as they found themselves trailing by 17 points. When Curry moved in to position himself of front of Christon elbows briefly tangled before their hands began to fidget. Within the blink of an eye the opposing guards were pushing and shoving, prompting Westbrook to step between them in what looked like an attempt to stop deescalate the confrontation. But whether it was words said, or the emphasis behind contact made with his arms, something then appeared to tick him off as well, leading to he and Curry shouting at one another from behind a crowd of teammates intervening in order to prevent an all out brawl.

After the squabble settled Golden State claimed possession and quickly chucked the ball up the court to Curry, who hit a 3-pointer to put them ahead 59-39 midway through the game. They’d eventually take the contest with a final score of 111-95.

Tomi Lahren Suspended by The Blaze for Going on Record as Pro-Choice

Firebrand conservative Tomi Lahren has been suspended from her hosting duties at The Blaze after she admitted to being and explained why she is pro-choice during an appearance on The View last week.

Tomi was Friday’s [March 17] guest on the daytime talk show, where she sat in with the mostly liberal cast of hosts to discuss her career and take on politics and current events. At one point during the interview she was challenged on her claim to be a constitutional conservative when, as Sunny Hostin pointed out, her political stances don’t completely align with many who profess to be constitutional conservatives, namely, her position on abortion. Tomi admitted to indeed being pro-choice and went on to elaborate on how she sees the stance as consistent with her limited government principles.

“I’m pro-choice, and here’s why: I am a constitutional, you know, someone that loves the Constitution,” she said. “I’m someone that’s for limited government. So I can’t sit here and be a hypocrite and say I’m for limited government but I think the government should decide what women do with their bodies. I can sit here and say that as a Republican and I can say, you know what, I’m for limited government, so stay out of my guns, and you can stay out of my body as well.”

As would be expected, her comments, and to some degree her very appearance on the show, rubbed many of her supporters the wrong way, leading to growing talk of a possible boycott from the pro-life right. By Monday multiple sources had reported that the network was taking her off of the job for a week. Managing editor of The Blaze, Leon Wolf, confirmed the news, only stating: “Tomi’s show will not be in production this week. Wish I could comment but I can’t.”

DWTS RECAP: THIS IS HOW THEY DO IT!

By Joanne Rosa

The new season of Dancing with the Stars premiered last night, but drama has been brewing backstage for a while now. Glee star and Beyonce’s back up dancer, Heather Morris, is a hot topic because of her background in dancing. Many of the contestants feel it’s unfair that she is even competing. Be that as it may, she may have some competition with fan favorites, like NFL player Rashad Jennings, and four-time gold medalist Simone Biles, who scored the highest score!

We learned a lot about the stars in the season opener.

Fifth Harmony singer Normani Kordei has performed in front of thousands, but this was different for her. During rehearsals, Normani was so nervous about her dance, she would literally pass out from nerves and being out of shape. She said she didn’t want to have that seen on TV, but host Erin Andrews half joked that they have her on camera, and will find her.

Immediately, actor Chris Kattan and dance pro, Whitney Carson were off to a rocky start, as she doesn’t watch TV. She had no idea who he was! Chris updated her on what got him on the show in the first place. In his mind, Chris was ready to get his groove on, but his body wasn’t. He told coach Whitney he broke his neck in the past, but assured her that it wouldn’t get in the way of his dancing. Check out his recap below to see is the judges agreed.

Professional dancers and engaged couple Peta Murgatroyd and Maksim Chmerkovskiy are back on stage together after Peta took a year off to have their baby. The last time Peta was on the show, she was the winner with partner Donald Driver. Peta is ready to get her abs back, and win the mirrored ball again. Of course, there is some competition between the couple, and it just so happens that Maksim’s partner, Heather Morris, is a professional dancer.

Speaking of Heather Morris, she spoke about what the show means to her. Heather grew up dancing, but has never done ballroom. She is worried that as a dancer, viewers at home that are also dancers will judge her harshly. She hasn’t been working or dancing in quite some time, and is eager to get the hang of dancing again.

Let’s get into a breakdown of the dances and the stars last night!

ABC's "Dancing With the Stars" - Season 24 - Portraits

Normani Kordei with Valentin Chmerkovskiy
“Good Time Good Life” By Erin Bowman
Quickstep
There’s a lot of pressure that comes with being the first dancer on the season premiere of DWTS, but Normani made it look easy. Normani looked gorgeous, and didn’t let her nerves get the best of her. Normani and Valentin need to work on their harmony as a dancing couple, but the judges believe they can get there.

Nancy Kerrigan with Artem Chigvintsev
“She’s Always A Woman” by Billy Joel
Viennese Waltz
Former Olympic figure skater Nancy Kerrigan learned that dancing on the ice is much different from dancing on the floor. Overall, the dance was graceful, and the couple moved well together. Julianne noted Nancy’s arms look great, but her turns and spot need a little work. Len said the movement was expressive, and that the pair has great promise.

Chris Kattan with Whitney Carson
“What Is Love” by Haddaway
Cha Cha
They danced to the song that is basically the anthem to Chris’ career.
We learned that Chris broke his neck in the past, and that is causing a problem for him on the dance floor. Bruno liked his impression of the cha cha with a hangover after a long night out at The Roxbury. The judges want him to be true to who he is. In a non-competitive atmosphere, we would love every second of Chris’ dancing.

Bonner Bolton with Sharna Burgess
“Move” by Luke Bryan
Cha Cha
Bonner and Sharna have great chemistry. The two definitely turned on the sex appeal for this one. The judges believe he has the potential to be a great dancer, but needs to be more confident. There was a point where he lost his footing, but he got back into the groove quickly. Carrie Ann was “oozing” over Bonner. Sharna is in for the ride of a lifetime with Bonner at her side.

Charo with Keo Motsepe
“Cuban Pete” by Mambo Compañeros
Salsa
Charo still has the energy of a 25 year old! Charo is no stranger to performing and dancing. The 66 year old pop icon brought it all when she stepped onto the dance floor. Charo and Keo looked like they were having a great time. The judges were kind, with great comments practically all around. So when it came time to give their score, Charo was shocked, and disappointed with the results.

Nick Viall with Peta Murgatroyd
“Let Me Love You” by DJ Snake and Tiësto feat. Justin Bieber
Cha Cha
Nick wasn’t always smooth with the ladies, and the theme has now moved its way to the dance floor. More than one judge pointed out his flat feet. It was obvious that he was thinking about the moves too much, and needs to make things more natural. Luckily, Nick has the determination to win.

Heather Morris with Maksim Chmerkovskiy
“Make Something Beautiful” By Ben Rector
Viennese Waltz
Bruno hit it right on the nose: We got serious Beauty and the Beast (LINK TO PLAYLIST) from these two! Carrie Ann noted that we didn’t get to see Heather’s personality come through in the dance. Aside from that one comment, the judges had nothing but wonderful things to say about the dance. Julianne made it known to viewers that being a ballroom dancer is very different than what Heather was trained to do.

David Ross with Lindsay Arnold
“Go Cubs Go” By Steve Goodman
Quickstep
David wants to catch the mirror ball and win the game, and he just might do it!
David wowed judges, and caught them by surprise with his light and fast dance moves. It was not something we were expecting from a baseball player like David. There were some general pointers for David, but overall, the dance was playful, and well done.

Erika Jayne with Gleb Savchenko
“XXpen$ive” By Erika Jayne
Salsa
Leave it to Erika to dance to her own song. We could have seen that coming. If there is one thing the viewers at home learned about Erika, it is how flexible she is. Girl can do a split! Len didn’t think that the dance was tasteful, while Julianne praised her for embracing her sexuality. The song was Erika’s, so it only made sense that she did a dance to match it.
Carrie Ann-6

Rashad Jennings with Emma Slater
“24K Magic” By Bruno Mars
Cha Cha
Rashad and Emma are 24-karat magic on the dance floor. Julianne called this the best dance of the night so far, and thinks he can make it all the way. She wasn’t the only one who agreed that he was great. Rashad and Emma scored the second highest score of the night.
Carrie Ann-8
Len-7
Julianne-8

SCORE: 31/40

ABC's "Dancing With the Stars" - Season 24 - Portraits

Mr. T with Kym Herjavec
Theme Song from The A-Team
Cha Cha
Mr. T is not on the A-Team when it comes to dancing. He told his dance partner, Kym that he is doing DWTS to inspire kids. So maybe he wants to show them that it’s ok to mess up on national television. Len noted that Mr. T does not stand for technique, but it must stand for tenacity and trying your hardest.

Simone Biles with Sasha Farber
“Untouchable” by Tritonal and Cash Cash
Tango
Simone Biles effortlessly took a split leap from the gym mat to the dance floor. Simone and Sasha moved swiftly together, and looked like they belonged together. Len claimed this was the dance of the night, and Julianne called them the dynamic duo. They have set the bar high for themselves, and the rest of the dancers.
