I’m kind of a nut about it and I always end up getting a bunch of Onesies and we all put pajamas on and do pretty, like, basic stuff," she tells ABC Radio.  One exception: her choice of holiday beverage. "I don’t like eggnog so I just drink the alcohol that you put it in," she laughs. However, her favorite holiday tradition is something everyone can relate to.  "Mainly, I just like…

Justin Bieber Urges Fans to Make British Charity Single Number One on Christmas

Justin Bieber doesn’t need to be number one on the charts this Christmas. Instead, he’d rather give that honor away.

It's apparently a tight race between Justin’s song “Love Yourself” and the Lewisham & Greenwich NHS Choir’s “A Bridge over You,” which is a mash-up of Simon & Garfunkel's "A Bridge over Troubled Water" and Coldplay's "Fix You."
