Mariah Carey loves a good unboxing. And when the parcel contains the first shipment of her #MC30 vinyl re-releases, all the better. “Just got the first batch of my #MC30 vinyl releases & decided to give you a full review!” the singer says alongside a video posted on Tuesday (Nov. 24) in which, as advertised, she opens up the box featuring vinyl remasters of such beloved albums as Emotions, Daydream, Music Box, Butterfly, Rainbow and more.
“The first batch of my vinyls are out now!” she says in the clip as a stack of LPs rest on her lap. “And I’m excited! Because it’s just great to have vinyl, I’m glad that it’s a thing again.” The screen then splits to eight boxes, in which Mariah holds up one of eight iconic albums to the camera and slips out the different-colored vinyl in each.
Watch: BTS is ‘truly honored’ to receive first Grammy nomination, perform ‘Dynamite’ on ‘Late Late Show’
Nov. 25 (UPI) — BTS appeared on The Late Late Show for the second time in a row to discuss their first-ever Grammy nomination and to give a special performance of “Dynamite.”
Host James Corden played on Tuesday a video of the South Korean boy band reacting to the Grammy nomination. Corden mentioned how V wasn’t celebrating like the others.
“My nostrils were saying what I was feeling. The reactions were different for each member. In my case, I just couldn’t believe it,” V said.
BTS was nominated for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for “Dynamite.” The 63rd annual Grammy awards take place on Jan. 31.
“First of all we’re truly honored and know it’s a huge step, a milestone not only for us but for the music industry. It makes us even happier to know how proud our fans must be right now,” RM said about the nomination.

Nov. 24 (UPI) — Celebrity couple Chrissy Teigen and John Legend say their marriage is stronger than ever in the wake of their pregnancy loss.
The 34-year-old model and television personality and 41-year-old singer discussed on Tuesday’s episode of Good Morning America how the death of their son Jack has brought them closer together.
Teigen experienced a pregnancy loss in September while 20 weeks pregnant with her third child with Legend, a boy they named Jack. On GMA, Teigen and Legend shared the “utter grief” they felt after the loss.
“I definitely give myself permission to feel complete and utter grief,” Teigen said. “Every day is so different. So when people ask me how I’m doing I always say I’m okay — today.”
“I didn’t know that we could experience this grief and also share it, but when we did it really meant so much to so many people,”
Rappers and R&B singers tend to be the most-nominated acts at thethanks to producing their own hits and collaborating with others — sometimes from different genres — giving them a chance to qualify for more nominations than a pop or country singer who worked alone during the eligibility period. Kendrick Lamar, Kanye West, , Jay-Z and others are proof of this theory, and in a normal year, would be that rapper who leads in nominations thanks to her hits “Savage” with Beyoncé and “WAP” with Cardi B, along with her successful EP “Suga.”
But “WAP” wasn’t submitted for nominations this year — what has made sense in 2020 — and when the Grammy nominations are announced Tuesday, Megan Thee Stallion will be honored, but not like she could have been. Her nominations will likely include record of the year, best rap song and best
Nov. 24 (UPI) — This is Us star Mandy Moore is discussing her experience with filming the show while pregnant.
During Monday’s episode of Late Night with Seth Meyers, Moore, 36, laughed at how her real-life pregnancy didn’t line up with her character’s on the NBC series.
Moore is seven months pregnant with her first child, a son, with her husband, musician Taylor Goldsmith. On This is Us, Moore plays Rebecca Pearson, a wife and mother who was once expecting triplets with her husband, Jack Pearson (Milo Ventimiglia).
On Late Night, Moore remarked on how the multiple timelines on This is Us made it impossible for her real-life pregnancy to perfectly match up with scenes of a pregnant Rebecca.
“It’s funny because the trajectory of our show is, we sort of jump around in time all the time,” Moore said. “In fact, the very first episode I

Dua Lip has been having a monster year. After the release of her second album Future Nostalgia earlier this year, she eventually followed that up with Club Future Nostalgia: The Remix Album, an entire remix record that included some icons from the club, house, and dance music world, and even featured Madonna and Missy Elliot on a reimagined version of “Levitating.”
