And just like that it's November. Leading up to the holidays, there are always great releases, though apparently a few by major artists will be postponed until next year to avoid the upcoming Adele album.
Multi-platinum singer Michael Bolton and Richard Clayderman cover "(They Long To Be) Close To You"--a '70s hit for the Carpenters written by Burt Bacharach and Hal David--for the Fathers & Daughters: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, presented exclusively at HuffPost.
The great Johnny Cash said, "You build on failure. You use it as a stepping stone." And sometimes those stones lead to triumph. Just ask music video goliath Roy LaManna who has attributed to the success of thousands of videos from top artists including Justin Bieber and The Killers.
"A Spoonful of Sugar." "I Wan'na Be Like You." "Let It Go." Most of us have a favorite Disney song. And celebrities are no different. So it seems fitt...
To be the most-hated woman of the moment, all you have to do is be kind of a brat. Former Nickelodeon star and "Love Me Harder" singer Ariana Grande came in second in THR's biannual Q Score ranking, which ranks famous people by their popularity -- or in Grande's case, their unpopularity.

I never would have thought that my seemingly innocuous Pandora radio station could be so antagonizing!
These conversations also are great opportunities to introduce your daughter to other cool role models -- who might share attributes of the women she already admires.
"Watch out," Janine Molinari laughs, flashing me a megawatt smile. "They're gonna come at you!" No sooner has the acclaimed choreographer-director-dance teacher spoken than her students, 20 of Broadway's finest child performers, come barreling toward me.
