Watch: Carly Rae Jepsen shares ‘It’s Not Christmas Till Somebody Cries’ video

Dec. 2 (UPI) — Carly Rae Jepsen is back with a new music video.

The 35-year-old singer released a playful video Wednesday for her holiday single “It’s Not Christmas Till Somebody Cries.”

The video shows the song’s lyrics play out at a family Christmas celebration, including Jepsen’s vegan boyfriend being fed fish and grandpa accidentally eating weed gummies.

“Well, it’s not Christmas ’til somebody / Breaks into an argument / Ooh, I used to fight it / We get emotional too / I won’t deny it / I used to hide in my room but now I like it / ‘Cause it’s not Christmas ’til somebody cries,” Jepsen sings.

Jepsen previously said the song pokes fun at the expectation versus reality of Christmas gatherings.

“I love the old fashioned movies and the family traditions and the excitement of gifting presents and decorating the tree and and and.. my list is

Good intentions? TikTok star Charli D’Amelio reacted to the controversy surrounding her and sister Dixie D’Amelio’s video with their personal chef, Aaron May, after the siblings drew ire for their treatment of him.

“All of this is happening because [of] a misunderstanding,” Charli, 16, said through tears in a Thursday, November 19, Instagram Live video. “I just feel like that’s not OK, and if this is the community that I’m in and the community that I put myself in, I don’t know if I wanna do that anymore.”

The ladies of Potomac have arrived in Portugal — and Ashley Darby appears to have brought some relationship baggage with her overseas.

On Sunday’s episode of The Real Housewives of Potomac, the then-new mom prepared for the cast trip to Portugal while dreading the thought of leaving her baby son, Dean, behind. Nervous about leaving Dean for several days — something she hadn’t done since giving birth — Ashley enlisted her close friend, Eve, to take care of Dean during the day so that her husband, Michael Darby, could put their son to bed after he came home from work.

In addition to coping with her “anxiety” about leaving Dean, Ashley, 32, also worried about Michael’s ability to “behave” while she was away.

Earlier in the season, Michael admitted to visiting a strip club and doing something he “regrets.” The two had since been working on their

Despite cries of censorship, conservatives dominate social media

As racial protests engulfed the nation after George Floyd’s death, users shared the most-viral rightwing social media content more than 10 times as often as the most popular liberal posts, frequently associating the Black Lives Matter movement with violence and accusing Democrats like Joe Biden of supporting riots.

People also shared conservatives’ most-read claims of rampant voter fraud roughly twice as often as they did liberals’ or traditional media outlets’ discussions of the issue, the analysis found. The conservatives’ tactics included spinning mainstream media coverage on voting irregularities into elaborate conspiracy theories, sometimes echoed by Trump, that Democratic lawmakers are trying to steal November’s election.

POLITICO worked with researchers at the Institute for Strategic Dialogue, a London-based nonpartisan think tank that tracks extremism online, to analyze data from the institute’s extensive collection of information scraped from multiple social media platforms.

The findings demonstrate how a small number of conservative users

Many companies have tried injecting more personality into their Twitter feeds to humanize their brands. Companies often interact with each other on Twitter. Many of them are competitive: Dunkin’ and Wendy’s got into a Twitter spat in mid-October.

But the McDonald’s Twitter conversation was actually heartwarming. Here’s how it all went down.

First, McDonald’s tweeted: it’s always “when is the McRib coming back” and never “how are you
