John Legend Is Revamping Troublesome Christmas Classic, ‘Baby It’s Cold Outside’
John Legend will be releasing a deluxe version of his Christmas album, A Legendary Christmas, on November 8th. The expanded LP will include four new tracks, including a duet of “Baby It’s Cold Outside” with Kelly Clarkson with updated lyrics by Legend and comedian Natasha Rothwell (Insecure). The “reimagined” duet aims to modernize the song’s outdated and sometimes troubling lyrics, with the male suitor now graciously calling his female partner a cab: “I really can’t stay (Baby it’s cold outside)/I’ve gotta go away (I can call you a ride)/This evening has been (So glad that you dropped in)/So very nice (Time spent with you is paradise)/My mother will start to worry (I’
’s Unanimous Media production banner, ’s Get Lifted Film Co. and Sony Pictures are teaming up for the sports drama “ .” The project, which has tapped screenwriter Adam Hoff, marks one of the first films to be put into development under the NBA superstar’s first-look deal with the studio, which he signed last year.
The pic — in the vein of “Jerry Maguire” — follows an extremely driven sports agent trying desperately to sign a young, coveted basketball star as her client. In her desperation and determination, she considers resorting to illegal and unethical means to book the client.

Launches NBA Finals Series - Curry Weak, but Golden State Wins
The first match for the NBA title is not the big basketball show by Stephen Curry or LeBron James. The Warriors win the game due to a very different quality.
The Golden State Warriors have won the finals series in the North American basketball league NBA against the Cleveland Cavaliers. The defending champion prevailed on Thursday (local time) in the first game in the Best-of-Seven series with 104: 89.
"We knew we had to play aggressively and we knew we had to defend hard," said Livingston following the successful start to the rematch of last year's finals.
Golden State led at half-time with 52:43. After a successful lay-off by Kevin Love Cleveland went in the third quarter for the first time since the first minute of play again in the lead (64:63). Shortly thereafter, the master started a 15-0 run and moved away. Stephen Curry got a weak evening with 11 points. Without the great moments of glory of the most valuable player of the season (MVP), the Warriors convinced as a team.
Seven players scored two digits. Top scorer was Shaun Livingston with 20 points. "Everyone is ready, Shaun Livingston came off the bench and changed the game, which was incredible," said Curry, who never found his rhythm on the offensive. "It was funny, but it was also fun to watch my team win," added the MVP this season.
The star-trio Cavaliers led by Kyrie Irving (26), Lebron James (23) and Kevin Love (17) received little support from their team-mates. After a threesome from James in the 4th quarter to the 85:96 germinated briefly a little hope. However, two threes by Klay Thompson and Curry ended the Cavs catching up. The second game of the final series takes place on Sunday evening (local time) again in Oakland.
