Daybreak Daily’s afternoon last-minute shopping trip to the pop-culture mall finds a painted belly, a singing-show winner, other things, and two holiday mystery music videos.
WHAT AN IDEA: Didn’t say whether it was good or bad, just that it was an idea, per Celebuzz, “Standing next to her Christmas tree sporting a santa hat, Hilary Duff sent her holiday wishes to all of her fans (via Twitter) in a way that really takes advantage of her current pregnant status: She painted a big old “Happy Holidays” mural on her baby bump!” http://bit.ly/tUeUG9
SIMON COWELL’S SHOW: Melanie Amaro conquers all, per E!, “The 19-year-old with the powerhouse vocals was crowned winner of The X Factor (and a $5 million recording contract!) on Thursday night.” http://eonli.ne/rw4nNH
ROYALS ALERT: Bet the gifts will be NOT tacky, per the AP, “It will be a traditional Christmas weekend for Queen Elizabeth II's extended family, which now includes the former Kate Middleton, with the quiet holiday break to be followed by a year's worth of festivities to mark the queen's 60th year on the throne.” http://apne.ws/tD4E70
WHO?: No really, who? Per TMZ, “Rapper Tyler the Creator was arrested in Hollywood (early this morning) after he allegedly trashed some sound equipment inside the world famous Roxy on Sunset Blvd ... TMZ has learned.” http://bit.ly/sf3XEh
FUNNY: Here’s a video that shows a local weather guy in L.A. throwing a tantrum, per Deadline Hollywood. http://bit.ly/rA90Ue
HAN SOLO!: He has decided to return to space, per PerezHilton, “After playing hard to get, Harrison Ford couldn't resist the Ender's Game and he has joined the cast. Ford will play the Commander of Training for the International Fleet.” http://bit.ly/s9vsN3
DAMN LIBERAL MEDIA: And to prove it, Fox News contributor Brent Bozell went on the air today and provided this example, per the Daily Mail, “How long do you think Sean Hannity’s show would last if four times in one sentence, he made a comment about, say, the President of the United States, and said that he looked like a skinny, ghetto crackhead? Which, by the way, you might want to say that Barack Obama does,” Mr Bozell said Thursday. http://bit.ly/tsYaCc
GREEN DAY: The band, per the Huffington Post, is providing the soundtrack for a unique holilday special, “Avant-garde filmmaker John Roecker offers an underground alternative to It's a Wonderful Life this Christmas Eve, when he debuts his latest short film Jesus of Suburbia Loves Whatsername. “ http://huff.to/tCfcu4
AND FINALLY: Today’s mystery music videos. (One more than usual per the holiday season).
