Tate McRae tells Billboard magazine that one of her biggest challenges as an artist is vulnerability in her lyrics.

The more you expose yourself, the more people are able to connect with you.”

Taylor Swift tells Billboard magazine that getting her career off of the ground was a struggle. "I didn't think it was going to happen... I kept getting rejected. I'd get really good grades and then come home and write sad love songs. It took a lot of grinding and discouragement, a lot of hearing the word no, to get to where I am. I'd like to think my career shows people that hard work really will pay off in the end."

Usher tells that he values the personal connections he makes through his music. "It's really beautiful to know that there are people who really find something special in my music, and beyond that, find a connection, an understanding around the world with other people who may not necessarily understand their language, but they understand the emotion, they understand the energy. This is what makes me happy, this is what makes me smile."

As long as there is money to be made - and lots of it - Harry will be spilling the royal beans jot by jot, volume by volume. I would be shocked to discover that Harry and Meghan have decided to live a quiet life in Montecito. In the new year, we can expect for them to come roaring out of the gate yet again, demanding our attention - and, for better or worse, getting it.” says Taylor Swift is is enjoying the spotlight and being able to share her life with Travis Kelce. A source says, “With Taylor’s ex Joe, she was so private. They’d never go outside and walk around together. They just stayed at her Nashville compound or her Rhode Island house. With Travis, she’s more free and able to share her full life and she loves it. He’s used to fans going crazy in football, so it’s not such a shock.

Dear Fonseca

My mother-in-law and I have been arguing about the Elf on the Shelf I bought for my three children. The kids are two, four and six and are very rambunctious because of the holidays. My mother-in-law says I never should have bought an Elf on the Shelf because it adds stress to the children's lives. My friends say it was a good choice because Elf on the Shelf makes children behave better, which is something I dearly need at the moment. My mother-in-law says my kids are acting up because that's what kids do around the holidays. She says scaring them with an Elf on the Shelf is cruel. What is your opinion of the Elf on the Shelf?
