Spice Girls’ Mel B was asked who she thought was the “biggest d***head celebrity” during her appearance on The Big Narstie Show. She said, “So, there’s a few … James CordenGeri Halliwell … Jessie J and me.” As for implicating fellow Spice Girl Geri, Mel said, “I love her to bits but she’s really f***ing annoying!”

Idina Menzel told Variety her favorite Christmas movie is The Holiday and explained, “Jude Law is really hot and I just love the story and I love that they’re in the countryside of England and … It’s kinda Jude Law.”

Harry Styles can take full credit for the bells that play at the end of “As It Was.” Song co-writers Kid Harpoon and Tyler Johnson told Variety he not only had the idea for the tubular bells, he also played them in the song.
