The Christmas countdown has begun, and Pentatonix is getting into the spirit with the release of their music video for “Over the River,” featuring Lindsey Stirling.

The clip features the a cappella group and the violinist sporting dramatic costumes and performing the tune against different backdrops.

“Over the River” appears on Pentatonix’s latest holiday album, Evergreen, out now. The album also features a duet of “Frosty the Snowman” with Alessia Cara. To celebrate the collab, Pentatonix posted a TikTok duet challenge asking fans to sing along, and it didn’t take long for Alessia to join in.

“AHHHH! Thank you for singing with us!” Pentatonix commented on the TikTok duet. “We are your biggest fans! (also how do you sound just like the record omg).”

Alessia, meanwhile, released her own Christmas music video Friday for her solo holiday song, “Make It to Christmas.” The video shows behind-the-scenes clips of Alessia recording the original holiday track in the studio.

Joshua Bassett is ready to introduce himself and not have the songs by his ex, Olivia Rodrigo define who he is anymore.  

In a vulnerable interview with GQ, the 20-year-old actor admitted, "I feel like a lot of this last year people haven't seen me as a human being."  After "Drivers License" came out, Joshua said he began receiving death threats and was afraid to leave his New York City home.

"I would see TikToks with like 50 million views and 10 million likes saying, 'If I ever see that kid on the street, I'm going to f****** kill him," Joshua recalled.  "It's hard to see that."  He also recalled the time he was at a cafe and the staff repeated Olivia's songs until he got up and left.

Joshua has since moved out of New York -- now saying he lives "nowhere" -- and is learning to cope with the mental and emotional scars of the past year, which caused some long-repressed memories to come flooding back.

"I experienced sexual abuse a lot in my childhood," he confided to GQ. "I didn't remember that until last year, which is pretty insane. I buried it so far."  He was also reminded of the time he was taken advantage of by a "much older man" when he was a teenager.

Joshua plans to unpack his trauma through a series of "heavy talks" on an upcoming podcast, to "help people who are experiencing that."  He intends to release it next year.

Joshua dropped three new songs on Friday, which appear to reference his famous ex. "I finally found the courage to speak up for myself," he said, then added, "I’m not here to expose people. It was eating me alive, and I couldn’t keep it in anymore."

Backstreet Boys star Nick Carter has opened up about one of the "scariest" moments in his life, when his newborn daughter, Pearl, spent five days in the neonatal intensive care unit.  

Speaking with People, the singer recalled the traumatic moment following his daughter's birth in April. His wife, Lauren, had been "experiencing some minor complications" while in labor, and there were further problems after Pearl arrived.

"To see your child being born and then having to be put in the NICU ... it's the scariest thing," Nick explained. He called the five days Pearl spent in the NICU "really emotional" and noted they were waiting for her oxygen levels to rise, but declined to go into further detail about her condition other than saying, "It was tough."

Pearl, who is now seven months old, is now home and enjoying life with her two other siblings, five-year-old Odin and two-year-old Saoirse.

After experiencing such a scare, Nick calls it a "blessing" to watch his baby grow up healthy, adding, "I'm very happy that she's here in our lives and we will do everything that we can to make sure that all of our kids are protected and love."

Nick hopes that, by sharing his daughter's story, he can "help someone else feel a little better if it did happen to them. You can make it through. Maybe that's a silver lining."

Nick will host Home 4 the Holidays, a virtual dinner and singalong, on December 16 to benefit the Cure 4 the Kids Foundation, a nonprofit that aims to cure and prevent childhood diseases.

Lady Gaga is already off to a good start this awards season.

The singer/actress has been named Best Actress by the New York Film Critics Circle for her role in House of Gucci. In the Ridley Scott-directed film, Gaga plays Patrizia Reggiani, the woman who was famously convicted of arranging the murder of her ex-husband, Italian fashion heir Maurizio Gucci.

Gaga has been generally getting rave reviews for her performance, though the Gucci family has spoken out decrying the film's portrayal of the protagonists as inaccurate.

House of Gucci is Gaga's acting follow-up to her Oscar-nominated role in 2018's A Star Is Born.

The New York Film Critics Circle also named Benedict Cumberbatch as Best Actor for The Power of the Dog while Drive My Car was chosen as Best Film.

New music Friday continues with Doja Cat, who gave her single, "Woman," a music video makeover that once again takes us back to Planet Her.

The sultry video follows a queen, played by Teyana Taylor, and her generals seducing the men who want to steal her crown. The creation is rich with colorful visuals and killer choreography, which fans have come to expect with Doja's work. However, this goes a little further than just serving as a piece of eye candy.  The "Woman" music video is also interactive and urges her fans to take a crack at coding.  

Doja teamed with Girls Who Code to create the DojaCode, which fans can use to unlock exclusive content in the music video.  Girls Who Code claim this is "the first ever codable music video" out there and are looking forward to seeing how fans "control the story using code."

Doja was also excited about the partnership and said in a statement, "I am so excited that Girls Who Code has partnered with me to make my 'Woman' music video the world's first codable music video. Fans all over the world will get to input code via a microsite and unlock some really cool special features. It's going to be awesome."

"Woman" is featured on Doja's Grammy-nominated album, Planet Her.
