Iggy Azalea has been one of the biggest acts of 2014, with the release of her debut album The New Classic, which launched songs like "Fancy," "Black Widow," and (most recently) "Beg For It. Her guest spot on Ariana Grande's hit, "Problem" also helped solidify the Australian rapper's presence in mainstream music. After headlining several Jingle Ball shows this season, it's no surprise that Iggy is ready to embark on her second headlining U.S. tour.
The Great Escape Tour will visit more than 20 cities, kicking off April 14, 2015, in Fresno, CA. It warps on May 24, 2015, in Austin, TX. On the tour, Iggy will be joined by Nick Jonas, formerly of The Jonas Brothers fame, who recently released his second solo album, led by the single "Jealous," which peaked at No. 5 on the U.S. Billboard Mainstream Top 40.

The nominees for the 2015 Golden Globes were announced this week, which has left many discussing the biggest snubs. First up is Amy Poehler — the host — who was nixed from the Best Actress in a TV Series category. Also missing from the TV nominees were Mindy Kaling for "The Mindy Project" (despite the fact that this year has been the best yet); Kerry Washington from "Scandal"; "Brooklyn Nine-Nine"; and "The Walking Dead" (which seems to be absent from most award shows all together, despite the fact that it pulls some of the highest numbers on television). As for movies, many were surprised by the lack of nominations for "Unbroken," directed by Angelina Jolie; the Christopher Nolan film "Interstellar"; and Ben Affleck's acting in "Gone Girl" (as the director, female lead, and screenplay all received nods).
I think there are two camps of people that exist: those that love Christmas music, and those who are vehemently against it. I fall into the former camp. The day after Thanksgiving is over, I'm zealous about the holiday music I listen to. I'm a huge fan of the classics and I think it's widely agreed upon that very few new Christmas music is good (although kudos for attempting).
But there are some great modern-day Christmas songs out there! Here are a few of my favorites.
#1 - Mariah Carey, "All I Want for Christmas is You"
As far as I'm concerned, this list could be composed entirely of Mariah Carey's song "All I Want for Christmas is You" and be considered a raging success. This is not only the best modern-day Christmas song, it's probably my favorite Christmas song of all time. And I'm not sorry! I love this song. Bonus points for the video.
Here is what I know about the college bowls: they are happening. They are important to some people. They involve a sport (I am guessing football, but I cannot be certain). And something exciting (?) or, at the very least, noteworthy is happening with them (?) or maybe the schedule (?) or something, which is making people talk about/care about/discuss college bowls.
As you can see, I know next to nothing about these alleged "college bowls" (Note to self: Is there even an "s" on the end of that?). So here are 10 other bowls that are great, and have literally nothing to do with whatever is going on in sports right now.
#1 - Cereal Bowls
Cereal is delicious, and therefore a cereal bowl is what kicks off our list of the best bowls. Plus, today it was announced that French Toast Crunch, a cereal loved by '90s kids everywhere, is coming back!
eLump of Coal
If you're still trying to figure out what gift to get for your loved or not-so-loved ones this holiday season, we'd like to humbly suggest an eLump of Coal. It's perfect for people you love, but like messing with; people you don't really care for, but they don't know that; and everyone in between (including those who are essentially impossible to shop for). You can go here to send one or two or three. P.S. It's free!
