A SALMONELLA ALERT FOR TURKEY…HOW TO AVOID GETTING SICK
The ongoing Salmonella outbreak simply raises the risk of not following precautions such as:
1. Do not eat raw turkey: Unless you want to play diarrhea roulette.
2. Do not feed your pets raw turkey: Unless you and your pet want to play diarrhea roulette.
3. Thoroughly clean anything that touches raw turkey. This meaning everything, includes all utensils, cutting boards, counters, storage containers, and any costumes in which you may dress your turkey.
4. Wash your hands frequently and thoroughly: Use soap and water and not hand sanitizer or some other liquid like gravy.
5. Don’t wash the turkey: This could cause a Salmonella aromatherapy mist.
6. Beware of a suspicious turkey: Don’t prepare or eat turkey that looks or smells odd.
7. Properly store the turkey: Keep the turkey frozen until you are ready to thaw and cook it.
8. Properly defrost the turkey: Trying to cook a not completely defrosted turkey may leave undercooked areas. There are many inappropriate ways and places to thaw a turkey like on a counter, on a table, in your bed, or on a sofa. The 3 proper options are to immerse the turkey in cold water while wrapped in a waterproof plastic bag (the turkey, that is and not you), using the microwave, or keeping the turkey in the refrigerator long enough (which according to the USDA is 1 to 3 days for a 4-to-12 pound turkey, 3 to 4 days for a 12 to 16 pound one, 4 to 5 days for a 16 to 20 pound one, and 5 to 6 days for 20 to 24 pound one.)
9. Cook stuffing before you stuff the turkey or better yet don’t stuff the turkey: Bacteria can hide out in the stuffing while the turkey is being cooked.
10. Use an oven temperature of at least 325°F to cook the turkey.
11. Use a turkey thermometer: This can ensure that the inside of the turkey can reach at least 165°F or 74°C, the temperature that kills Salmonella. Use a real turkey thermometer and not a rectal thermometer. The words rectal thermometer and dinner should almost never go together.

DUA LIPA CONFIRMS ARIANA GRANDE COLLABORATION…DENIES TAYLOR SWIFT FEUD
One fan called in to WWHL live to ask the recent Grammy nominee about the rumors of her singing the title song for the next James Bond movie. “The answer is I want to do it, but I’ve not been asked to do it,” Lipa clarified.
Another curious fan asked Lipa, who previously teamed up with Silk City duo Mark Ronson and Diplo on the hit song “Electricity,” if she ever turned down a song that ended up becoming a huge hit. After hesitating to answer, Lipa decided that she “probably shouldn’t say it,” because she “doesn’t want to take that away from anybody who has had the success of that song.” “The song was a hit because of them,” Lipa kindly said.
Lipa also addressed rumors involving her and fellow female pop stars Taylor Swiftand Ariana Grande. Lipa squashed the rumors of her alleged beef with Swift that ignited after she chose Kanye West over Swift during a rapid fire question game on a talk show. Lipa clarified to host Andy Cohen that she chose Kanye because she’s a hip-hop fan, and wasn’t taking sides in the famous feud. “For music at the time, that was what I was into,” Lipa said.
Lipa also revealed that she and Grande did do a song together, but doesn’t think it’s going to come out because the timing wasn’t “quite right” for both of the busy artists. “I love Ari. I love everything she does,” Lipa gushed, before adding that maybe they’ll get to do something again in the future.
MILEY GOES TOPLESS TO PROMOTE HER NEW SONG NOW PLAYING ON THE BEACH 96-POINT 5
“THANK U, NEXT” IS THE FASTEST VIDEO TO REACH 100 MILLION VIEWS ON VEVO
Over the weekend, Ariana Grande’s video for “thank u, next” broke VEVO’s 24-hour record, racking up over 50 million views. Now, it’s broken yet another VEVO record.
The clip, a tribute to the movies Bring It On, Legally Blonde, Mean Girls and 13 Going on 30, is now the video to reach 100 million views the fastest in the streaming platform’s history. It hit that mark fewer than four days after its release on Friday, November 30.
Due to the success of the “thank u, next” video, the song is likely to return to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 next week. It was just dethroned after three weeks by Travis Scott’s track “Sicko Mode.”
The success of the “thank u, next” video has also sparked an increase in viewings of the movies that inspired it. Billboardreports that according to Amazon, streams for all four of those films increased an average of 33 percent each from the video’s release on Friday through Sunday, as compared to the previous weekend.
TAYLOR SWIFT’S “REPUTATION” TOUR BIGGEST EVER

The U.S. leg of the tour started May 8th and ended October 6th.
CAMILA CABELLO LOVES HER NEW MURAL IN LITTLE HAVANNA/MIAMI
One minute you’re launching your solo career, the next you’re on a mural in the middle of the city. This is exactly what happened to Camila Cabello.
Paying tribute to her career and achievements, local artists have created a large mural on a building located in Little Havana, one of Miami’s biggest tourist attractions where you can find the best Cuban restaurants, cigars, clubs, cafecito,live music, and domino park.
In true Camila fashion, the songstress did not hesitate to share the photo and express her feelings on Instagram. “This took my breath away,” she said, explaining that she loves walking around Little Havana because she feels connected to her family and her Cuban roots. “This is soooo beyond cool and it made my heart skip a beat!!!!” she added.
Indeed, the Cuban-American singer could not believe she has become the literal center of attention on a busy street in Miami.
ADAM LEVINE REVEALS HIS LOVE FOR CHEESY 80S SONGS
Since he became a worldwide superstar, Adam Levine‘s had the chance to collaborate with all kinds of super-cool artists, from Pulitzer Prize-winning rapper Kendrick Lamar to Alicia Keys to Stevie Wonder. But back when he was a kid, the Maroon 5 frontman liked the same cheesy ’80s songs as everyone else.
In a video feature called Voice Coaches on Blast, posted on People.com, Adam answers a series of rapid-fire questions, like his favorite movie — that would be E.T. — and what he collects — shoes. But when asked to name his first-ever concert, Adam admits it was a hair-metal show.
“My dad took me to go see Warrant,” he says, referring to the Spandex-clad glam metal group most famous for the hits “Heaven” and “Cherry Pie.”
“I was 11. It was the Dirty Rotten Filthy Stinking Rich tour, and it was at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium. It was crazy.”
Asked to name the first album he bought, Adam says the first music he shelled out money for was a single.
“‘Electric Avenue,’ Eddy Grant,” he says. “And I played it incessantly in the car and my parents went absolutely nuts.”
In the same interview, Adam also says his first car was his dad’s ’86 Chevy Blazer.
“I thought it was the coolest car ever…it was black with a red stripe on the bottom,” he recalls. “I literally thought I was the king of Los Angeles in my beat up ’86 Chevy Blazer.”
BACKSTREET BOYS AJ SAYS SHAWN MENDES “DREAMY”
Backstreet Boys fans worldwide were thrilled on Friday when the group dropped a new single, announced a new album, and revealed they’d be going on a world tour. The new single, “Chances,” was co-written by OneRepublic‘s Ryan Tedder and Shawn Mendes, and the Boys were thrilled to have it…despite some jealousy over Shawn’s dreaminess.
AJ McLean tells Billboard that “Chances” came about because he’s known Ryan for 15 years: They worked together on AJ’s first solo project.
“I kept saying “Dude, you’ve gotta send us the hotness, man!” recalls AJ. “Finally we got a song submitted we all fell madly in love with it. We loved what it said, we loved the vibe.”
“He’s just such a brilliant writer and just an all-around awesome freaking guy,” AJ says of Ryan. “And same with Shawn. Shawn’s so talented and a freaking sweetheart. I hate [that] he’s so tall and handsome, it kills me!”

MARSHMELLO’S HELMIT STAYS ON FOR NOW
Victoria’s Secret teamed up with Marshmello (who you may know from his collaborations with Selena Gomez on “Wolves,” Bastille’s “Happier” and Khalid’s “Silence,”) to help relaunch the PINK Nation mobile app. To spread the word, they created an epic day of fun, food and tunes (DJ’d by Marshmello) throughout the city of Chicago.
If you’re unfamiliar with the DJ-ing sensation (he has 12 million Instagram followers!), he is notorious for keeping his marshmallow helmet on at all times and rarely speaks. In fact, during an interview with PEOPLE, he texted his responses to our questions.
When asked how uncomfortable his helmet is on a scale from 1-10 (10 being the most uncomfortable) he responded with an 8, saying “nothing” will ever compel him to show his face to the public. “The helmet is on for good,” he wrote.
He does occasionally make an exception to his no-talking rule. “I love interacting with the mellogang,” he says about his fan base. “I speak on stage and to them when I meet them.”

BEACH MUSIC BAZZI AND CAMILA…”SHE CRUSHED IT”
Months ago, Camila Cabello said she was a fan of Bazzi’s hit “Mine.” Then, Camila tapped Bazzi to open for her on her first solo tour. Now, the two are finally singing together, on a new version of Bazzi’s song “Beautiful.” Bazzi explains why it took so long for them to record something.
“We just been waiting to get something in the books and waiting for a moment where we could both shine together,” he tells ABC Radio. “And ‘Beautiful’ felt like the perfect time.”
Bazzi says it’s notable that he asked Camila to join him on this particular song, the original version of which appears on his dbut album Cosmic.
“That’s one of the first records I made in the direction of Bazzi and Cosmic and the whole sound,” he explains. “So, I mean, it’s such an important record to me, and putting her on it was big for me. But she crushed it!”

SHAWN MENDES NOT LOOKING FOR LOVE
Shawn Mendes isn’t looking for love—at least not right now.
The 20-year-old “Nervous” singer, who is profiled in Variety‘s Power of Young Hollywood issue alongside comedian Pete Davidson and actress Amandla Stenberg, insists he is happily, decidedly single. “I’m not currently dating anyone, but it’s not because I don’t have time—I don’t know if I’d be dating anyone if I was home in Pickering, either. It hasn’t stumbled across me, and I’m not chasing it. Of course, seeing all those other artists and people in relationships, you think, ‘Maybe it would be nice; who would be great for me?'” the singer-songwriter says. “And that’s when you realize: ‘This is wrong. Let it be. I’m not supposed to be with anyone right now.'”
For now, Mendes is focused on preparing for his upcoming world tour. “I want to push myself to my limit of what I can handle and play as many shows and write as many songs as I can and fly around the world 10,000 times in a year, pushing myself to the point where it seems crazy,” he says, citing his friend Ed Sheeran as an example of someone who’s paved the way for him. “He’s just nonstop movement, and there’s something so exciting about pulling at that energy.”

At least 14 people have been injured and transported to hospitals after trusses holding up the entrance to a resort where the Backstreet Boys were set to begin a concert in Oklahoma collapsed.

The company says about 150 patrons did not evacuate and “the storm hit and knocked over the concert entrance trusses with 70 [to] 80 mile an hour winds and heavy rain,” a casino rep tells E! Online.
“We know that fans often suffer through inclement weather for their favorite acts,” says the rep, “but this was an unusual event and our thoughts are with those who were injured during this storm.”

While the July 31 filing suggests that Drake plans to use the phrase for things you’d expect like music, clothing, marketing and promotions, it also looks like he might be planning to use it for a game show to be broadcast on TV and the internet.
Presented as part of the evidence for his claim on the trademark are screenshots of the “God’s Plan” music video, its Wikipedia page and coverage of the song in various music publications.
