Holiday travel is awful.
You're lugging around a bulky coat. The lines at the airport are unbearable. And there's always someone insufferable on your plane (and, usually, sitting right next to you).
But it doesn't have to be an express jet to hell. This year, WestJet pulled off the sweetest "miracle" for passengers, with a little help from Santa and his elves (er, their employees). Santa asked passengers what they wanted for Christmas – only to find their presents coming down the baggage shoot when they arrived at their destination.

All is fair in love and Black Panties promotion. After Benedict Cumberbatch wooed the world with his seductive reading of R. Kelly's new song "Genius," the singer is back with his own viral moment.
R. Kelly went on Big Morning Buzz with Carrie Keagan to get revenge on the British actor. The crooner's weapon of choice was the line "John Harrison was a smokescreen to conceal my true identity; my name is Khan," from Cumberbatch's recent film Star Trek Into Darkness.

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.

From collaborations with Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber, to a brilliant spoken word performance by Benedict Cumberbatch on Jimmy Kimmel Live, celebrations of R. Kelly and his new album, Black Panties, have hit a critical mass.
There are many adjectives we could use to describe Kelly's lyrics – edgy, erotic, explicit, sexually eloquent (is that a thing?) – but until now, "adorable" was not one of them. Maybe that's because no one thought of adding a few kittens and puppies to the mix. Behold:

R. Kelly's album, Black Panties, dropped on Tuesday, but the singer has been planning its release since a certain undergarment landed on his wrist during a 2011 show.

When it came to the winners, there wasn't much controversy for the American Music Awards, which handed out trophies to Taylor Swift, Justin Timberlake and Macklemore.
But as anyone watching the show will tell you, the actual awards ended up taking a backseat to the night's many performers, who incited Twitter trends and plenty of head-scratching as the evening wore on.
In case you were watching The Walking Dead or Sunday Night Football, here's what had us asking, "What just happened?"

R. Kelly is having a moment.
For the past 10 years, the R&B singer has been one of the most reliable punchlines in pop culture. His sex scandal inspired one of the best Chappelle's Show sketches of all time, while his "hip hopera" Trapped in the Closet took domestic melodrama to such heights of ridiculousness that most of its fans couldn't believe that Kelly was in on the joke. Add in songs like "Sex Planet," whose lyrics often speak for themselves, and the R. Kelly image was set: a cartoonish sex fiend unaware of how bizarre his ideas played outside his own fantasies.

Lady Gaga hosted Saturday Night Live this weekend, and it was everything that we'd hoped it would be ... that is to say, a little weird, funny and occasionally magnificent.
Here are our favorite highlights.
