As any Hallmark card can tell you, the holidays are about bringing people together. For some of us, that means reuniting with grown-up children, or welcoming long-lost cousins into our homes. But for musicians, it means something else: seasonal duets, often performed with the oddest of partners.
From reality-show novelty songs to stocking-stuffer EPs, Christmas isn't Christmas until two people who have no business being in the same room have crowded in front of the mic to sing a holiday classic. Why do they do this? You should just as soon ask Black Friday shoppers why they camp out for hours in front of big-box stores. Holiday magic is a compelling thing.

With a string of blockbuster Las Vegas gigs under her belt, Celine Dion is a veteran Sin City performer. And now, she has a few words of wisdom for the new kid on The Strip: Britney Spears, who is set to begin a 16-date Vegas residency in December.
"What I wish for her, especially as a mother, is for her to find wonderful people who can help her find a balance between the artist that she is and the mother, and to try and find an emotional balance to cope with those two and be the best of both worlds," Dion tells ET Canada in an interview set to air Tuesday. "I think she can really do it!"

The name alone makes you want to sing and possibly throw glitter at someone who is near, far ... wherever they are.
And she's back! The Canadian songbird posted a teaser on her website Thursday for her new single, "Loved Me Back to Life," (out Tuesday) where she showcases her signature belting and possibly makes a unicorn cry with how amazing she sounds.
The teaser starts with a heart monitor beating – before leading into shots of Dion singing in the recording studio.

It was a really fun week online. There were a bunch of fun, musical videos posted (links below), and then we got the news that Ben Affleck was cast as Batman.
Look, we all like Ben. He's a good actor, and and even more talented director. But most of us still have PTSD from Daredevil. So read on for more on that story, and the rest of what happened online this week.

Every relationship has its ups and downs, and Céline Dion admits that her 18-year marriage to her manager Réne Angélil has definitely had its rough patches.
"Réne and I had our tough times. It wasn't always easy," the star, 45, admits in an interview with Vegas Deluxe's Robin Leach.
"We had tension between us. It's never easy being husband and wife, but add to that we are in business together, dealing with all the added pressures of shows, concerts, tours, traveling. It was hard – a lot of hard work."

Bieber and Gosling are 11th cousins once removed; he and and Dion are 10th cousins three times removed; and he and Lavigne are 12th cousins.

Prince Harry, move over – for a surprisingly immodest Céline Dion!
The singer proves she is anything but camera-shy as she takes V into her Florida home for a risqué high-fashion photo shoot for the magazine's travel issue (on newsstands Aug. 30). Sporting blunt bangs, the mother of three poses topless and in barely-there outfits.

There's no place like home – especially Céline Dion's.
Just ask the guy who was caught after allegedly breaking in.
In fact, Daniel Bedard, 36, was about to step into the bathtub of the Montreal-area residence on Monday when law officers, tipped off by the alarm system, showed up at the house with a canine unit, police tell the Associated Press.
Already, they say, the bather had helped himself to some sweets from the singer's kitchen.
