Megan Thee Stallion Is A Sexy Nurse In New Video For Christmas Song With Jimmy Fallon & Ariana Grande

Megan Thee Stallion Is A Sexy Nurse In New Video For Christmas Song With Jimmy Fallon & Ariana Grande

This holiday season just got a lot jollier, thanks to Jimmy Fallon and two of his special helpers – Ariana Grande and Megan Thee Stallion.

Mariah Carey got another challenge to her title of Queen of All Christmas Music. Days after Elton John and Ed Sheeran decided to drop some holiday cheer with their new single, Jimmy Fallon decided to get in on the fa-la-la fun….and he wasn’t alone! The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon host recruited Ariana Grande and Megan Thee Stallion for “It Was A… (Masked Christmas),” a holiday song that could have only come during this time of COVID.

As Jimmy and Ariana sang about wearing masks and waiting for boosters, Megan Thee Stallion appeared as a sexy nurse ready to give them their shots. Check it out above!

Jimmy alerted the world to his new song on Monday (Dec. 6) afternoon. “Guys. I can’t believe I’m typing this but – I’m dropping a new single and video tonight with [Ariana] and [Megan],” he tweeted, along with the single’s artwork. “I am so damn excited!!!” replied Joan Grande, Ariana’s mother. “You are so incredibly cute,” responded Ariana. “Thank you mama!” On Ariana’s Twitter page, she wrote how making the song was “the most fun ever. Love you !!!! both so much.” Megan responded with, “Love y’all.”

Ariana Grande is no stranger to Christmas songs. She’s released two holiday EPs – 2013’s Christmas Kisses and 2015’s Christmas & Chill – and in 2019, she joined Idina Menzel for “A Hand for Mrs. Claus,” off of Christmas: A Season of Love. The following year, Ariana teamed with Mariah and Jennifer Hudson for “Oh Santa!”, a song from the Mariah Carey’s Magical Christmas Special Soundtrack. In fact, “It Was A…(Masked Christmas)” isn’t even Ariana’s only Christmas song for 2021. Kelly Clarkson featured Ms. Grande on “Santa,’ Can’t You Hear Me,” from Kelly’s When Christmas Comes Around…

As for Mega, the closest thing she’s come to for a Christmas song is “Savage Santa,” a remix of “Savage” for an episode of The Late Late Show with James Corden. It oddly kind of worked, with Megan rapping some Christmas-themed lyrics along to the “Savage” beat. Hopefully, James Corden doesn’t get too jealous that Megan with playing reindeer games with Jimmy instead of him.

Megan recently spoke with HollywoodLife about her new “Hot Girl Enterprises” Cash By Cash Capp apparel collection, which would make for a great stocking stuffer this holiday season. “We called this collection ‘Hot Girl Enterprise’ for a reason – because it captures my sexiness and sophistication,” she said in the EXCLUSIVE interview. “I’m always working on being the best version of myself, and that’s the message I want to send to all my Hotties with this drop.”

Adele & Rich Paul: How They’re Feeling About A Potential Engagement & Marriage

Adele and boyfriend Rich Paul are reportedly ‘in love’ and are starting to think about their future life together, a source tells HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY.

Adele, 33, is head over heels for boyfriend Rich Paul, 39, and apparently, things are heating up between the couple. “Adele and Rich are in love,” an insider revealed EXCLUSIVELY to HollywoodLife. “They both find each other great driven people that really work hard. That is something that inspires both of them. She is so charming and lights up any room she is in, and he lets Adele be Adele. The success of him being an agent is to let his clients shine while he is in the shadows so to speak getting everything else done.”

The source went on to reveal that the sports agent, with whom Adele has been pictured a lot lately, also “finds commitment very important,” and that the couple are considering their future –while trying to stay grateful for their present, of course. “They would welcome [the idea of marriage] but there is literally zero rush for that to happen and is not on the horizon as they are really enjoying being boyfriend and girlfriend and getting to know each other more and more each day.

The source went on, “They make it simple for each other and they want to be in that sort of relationship right now before they take it to the next level. It is nice to think about, but they are currently happy with where things are at this moment.”

Another insider also recently spoke with HL about how “connected” the pair has been in the past few months they’ve been dating. “Adele is having such an amazing time with Rich, they really have connected over each’s sense of humor, and they really admire each other’s work ethic,” the source revealed. “They allow time to spend together and also give each other plenty of space so they are not overbearing with each other.”

Another insider also discussed the couple’s upcoming holiday plans on Nov. 5. “Coming into the holiday season, she is really looking forward to making more and more memories with Rich,” they revealed. “It is not a honeymoon phase type of situation; it is two people that have clearly found the right person and it genuinely just works.”

Kim Kardashian, Kanye West

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were two of many celebrities who attended fashion designer Virgil Abloh’s memorial at the Museum Of Contemporary Art in Chicago on Monday.

Kim Kardashian, 41, and Kanye West, 44, appeared in the same place at the same time this week when they both showed up to Virgil Abloh‘s memorial at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, IL. The exes, who filed for divorce in Feb., were photographed separately at the ceremony for the late fashion designer, who died of cancer at the age of 41 on Nov. 28, and seemed to try and not pay attention to cameras. They both wore black outfits and sunglasses and were seen walking at the location as onlookers surrounded them.

In addition to Kim and Kanye, others stars that were seen at the memorial included Rihanna and her boyfriend A$AP Rocky, Drake, Frank Ocean, and more. Tyler the Creator delivered the eulogy and Lauryn Hill gave a performance.

Before her appearance at the memorial, Kim has been making headlines for her outings with Saturday Night Live comedian Pete Davidson. The two were seen holding hands on at least one of the outings and it’s been reported that they’re casually dating. A source previously told us that Kanye was “put off” by their speculated relationship and the pics of them holding hands and does “not like it.”

Kanye was really put off by Kim holding hands with Pete and he did not like it at all. He asked Kim to ‘please refrain’ from showing public display of affection with anyone until their divorced is finalized. He told her that it doesn’t look good for their family and it doesn’t look good for her, or in the ‘eyes of God,’” the source EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife.

Kim and Pete were first spotted together after she hosted SNL and did a sketch with him that included an onscreen kiss. “They were having a good time — you could see that there were sparks,” another source EXCLUSIVELY revealed about their time on the set together. “You can tell they became quick friends while she was on the show.”
