This holiday, all you need is love, Katy Perry and some outfits from the Gap.

Katy stars in the clothing retailer's new holiday campaign, singing the Beatles' classic song "All You Need Is Love." In the commercials, Katy gets up, gets dressed, gets in a car and is driven to a set of a Gap commercial, where she sings the Fab Four's 1967 number-one hit while people and couples frolic around her, all sporting Gap winter wear as artificial snow falls.

Katy is releasing her full-length version of the song today.  One dollar from every stream on Spotify, up to $100,000, will be donated to Baby2Baby, a charity that provides kids living in poverty with the basic necessities of life.

"I'm always excited to work with brands that are going the extra mile to make this world a better, happier place," says Katy in a statement. "Reimagining one of the most recognizable and emotional songs of our time with an iconic brand like Gap, having such a special and important message, has been a dream."

"And what better reason to partner than bringing people together to spread joy for the holidays and raise money for Baby2Baby, a charity that's close to my heart?" says the mother of one-year-old Daisy Dove. "Children are our future. We need to lift kids and help them find their value, self-worth and self-respect."

On the MTV VMAs on Sunday night, Justin Bieber debuted his new single, "Ghost."  Now in a new long-form commercial he made with Dolby Atmos, he talks about the meaning of the song.

"So, 'Ghost' is a really special record," Justin says. "My objective with making the song was to make people song that there is hope, and the trauma and the hurt that you feel isn't gonna last forever. It takes time to heal. There will be a moment when that pain doesn't hurt so bad. Know that that feeling will subside."

In the rest of the ad, Justin talks about his relationship with God, the importance of love in his life, and how he wants to share "the ups" and "the downs" he experiences through his music, so he can help people. "That relatability can connect with the audience, I think," he explains.

"This world is hard and people are dealing with struggles every day," he adds. "I believe that music is a way of being able to escape those things. It's helped me a lot."

Dolby Atmos is billed as an immersive form of audio that Justin says in a statement "takes music to the next level. It’s game-changing and hits you differently. It’s the best I’ve heard my music. That’s a fact.”

When Elton John announced Wednesday that he was going to be in an UberEats commercial with Lil Nas X, we didn't expect to get three separate commercials -- and three sets of fabulous costumes, to boot.

Each ad is part of UberEats' ongoing "Tonight I'll Be Eating" campaign, in which celebrities detail what they've ordered and had delivered via the online platform.  The first one, "Rides," shows Elton riding a coin-operated kiddie rocket ride, while Nas is on a similar one in the shape of a horse.

After each singer describes their food order, Elton asks Nas to loan him some money to gets his ride started, but Nas doesn't understand him because Elton uses the British slang words for money: "bones," "lolly" and "bangers and mash."

Finally, an exasperated Elton says, "I don't have any money!" to which Nas responds, in a British accent, "You don't LOOK broke!"

The second clip, "Mayo vs. Ketchup," features Elton announcing that he's ordered a club sandwich with fries, with mayo on the side.  Nas, who's sitting in a clump of flowers wearing a Louis XIV-style wig and playing a sitar -- because why not? -- responds, "Mayonnaise? On fries?" Elton responds, "A little judgy, don't you think?" to which Nas adds, "That's weird."

The third clip, "Legendary Looks," features Nas dressed in the multi-colored spangled feather outfit Elton wore on The Muppet Show, while Elton's wearing a pink cowboy outfit like the ones Nas wore while promoting his song "Old Town Road."

"You look amazing!" gushes Elton.

"No, YOU look amazing," responds Nas.

"Thank you," replies Elton.

"Thank you," says Nas. They go back and forth before Elton finally says, "You're welcome."

As previously reported, Elton and Nas have recorded a duet with will appear on both their upcoming albums.
