    Trending Now: Offensive Christmas Ad?

    Sainsbury's, one of the United Kingdom’s biggest grocery chains, has released a controversial Christmas ad. It retells the story of Christmas in 1914, when British and German soldiers in World War I laid down their weapons and celebrated. Although it is just a commercial, it details what really happened. Men took part in traditional football, sang Christmas carols and exchanged gifts. Viewers have reacted angrily to the new ad for its 'cynical' use of first world war imagery to promote the supermarket.

    The cast of the “Hunger Games” took center stage on Saturday Night Live. The films biggest stars, Jennifer Lawrence, Woody Harrelson, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth were all on hand. Harrelson pointed out he hasn't hosted SNL since 1989, which is of course also the name of Taylor Swift’s latest album. The groups sang their own version of "Blank Space," retelling Woody Harrelson's version of 1989, which includes historical events such as "the Kool-Aid man knocking down the Berlin Wall."

    One woman didn't know she was being recorded, but she did know all the words to one Salt-N-Pepa hit. The song "None of Your Business" won the trio the Grammy for Best Rap Performance back in '95. The husband who uploaded the video wasn't out to embarrass her. He wrote a caption saying things like "my wife is the most beautiful human being I know" and "don't worry if people are judging you!"
