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.

Big blue eyes? Check. A great sense of humor? Check. A steady job? Eh, not so much.
It's not unusual to come up with a list of qualities that potential dates are expected to fulfill, but Joseph Gordon-Levitt says to throw it out.

There's a lot to love about Joseph Gordon-Levitt: his charming turn in 500 Days of Summer; his determination to do the right thing in The Dark Knight Rises; his face. But just when you think you've hit peak JGL appreciation, the sexy star of Don Jon, which he also wrote and directed, gives us one more reason to pine over him: he cuddles with a kitten.
The actor adorably cradles the tiny furbaby in a new spread for the October issue of Out magazine, which he also covers. Inside, Gordon-Levitt heaps praise on his late brother Dan, who passed away in 2010, and talks about how his parents raised him to be compassionate.
"They both instilled into me and my brother the feeling that we're part of the world, and that that's important – that we're all connected and everyone's well-being is tied to each other," he says. "They're hippies, but they were not so much about being flower children as getting something done, trying to stop this war, or changing civil rights or the feminist movement – and they still are that way."

Romain Dauriac, your Facebook history is safe.
"I'm not the jealous type who does background checks," his new fiancée Scarlett Johansson told reporters at Tuesday's premiere of her new movie Don Jon at the Toronto International Film Festival. "I'm not that type of girlfriend."
Johansson, 28, rocked the red carpet in a little black dress and flashed her engagement ring from the French journalist.
In her new movie, the Avengers star plays a demanding, gum-snapping Jersey girl who tries to change her new boyfriend's (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) personality.

There are worse things in life than having Scarlett Johansson play your love interest in a movie – just ask Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
The newly engaged actress, 28, stars alongside Gordon-Levitt, 32, in his self-directed and self-written film, Don Jon.
"I didn't know Scarlett, but I spent more than a year with the image of her in my head playing this character," the actor tells Men's Health. "She couldn't not do this."
