The GRAMMY Museum Presents 'An Evening With Arlo Guthrie'

Buzz 08:40AM EDT

Hearing Arlo Guthrie's classic 18-minute long spoke-sung folk song "Alice's Restaurant Massacree" on multiple radio stations every Turkey Day is as much of a holiday tradition as watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and avoiding political discussions like the plague. Earlier this year, the iconic folksinger hit the road with his supporting band for the Alice's Restaurant 50th Anniversary Tour which continues to meander across North America through May 2016. This weekend's annual Arlo Guthrie and Family Thanksgiving concert at Carnegie Hall celebrates the 50th anniversary of the incident that inspired the song.READ MORE

'Y&R' Corey Sligh Needs to Learn How to Walk Again After Brutal Thanksgiving Attack

Off-Key 12:21PM EDT

Soap opera star Corey Sligh is slowly recovering from a brutal attack that occurred Thanksgiving night. He and his girlfriend, Alisa Berhorst, have made it a tradition to bring Thanksgiving dinner to their friends who are stuck working, and they were doing that when the incident occurred. The "Young and the Restless" star had just pulled into a Rite Aid parking lot and saw two guys in a car speeding, doing donuts while onlookers screamed. Sligh said something to the men and ended up being purposely hit by their car and then brutally beaten. Nearly two months later the actor says he is not harboring any hatred for the men. Sligh spoke exclusively with The Wrap and explained what he remembers after telling the driver to slow down. "He looked me dead in the eye and kicked open his door as hard as he could into my chest. Then I said, 'Look, I don't have any problems, man.' And I walked away, off to the left of his car. That's when I heard tires squealing behind me. I turned around and the car was 3 feet away and coming at full speed. The next thing I know I'm up on the hood of the car, flipping off of the side. I thought it was over. They both attacked me. One guy hit me repeatedly in the face. I looked up and saw the other guy shoving Alisa and [our female friend]. I tried going over there while the first guy was hitting me. I had to tackle one of the guys to get him off and that's when my arm snapped," says Sligh.READ MORE

Kanye West Flees to Paris After a Few Rocky Days in NYC with Kim Kardashian

Off-Key 13:01PM EDT

It does not take much to see that the marriage of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian is already under ridiculous strain. The couple spent nearly a month apart and were even an ocean apart for the Thanksgiving holiday. West's being photographed in Paris rather than celebrating with his family led to all sorts of speculation that things are not good between them. Now we are learning that the rapper did reunite briefly with his wife before fleeing the country again. According to a report by Radar Online, Kardashian and West spent a few rocky days in New York City this past week before he left for Paris. Sources close to the couple say they have hit an incredibly rough patch, and many things are dividing them. Kardashian reportedly feels like their marriage is just a business arrangement and that West puts his new family way down on the list of priorities. Their living situation has also turned into a major bone of contention, as Kardashian has been living at her mother Kris Jenner's house for nearly two years now. Not only does the couple not have a home of their own, but West reportedly has every intention of making Paris his permanent residence next year, and little North West will be going with him. Kardashian is adamant about remaining in Los Angeles and keeping their baby with her.READ MORE

Has Kim Kardashian Already Met with High-Powered Divorce Attorney Despite Kris Jenner's Opposition?

Off-Key 12:34PM EDT

Being married to Kanye West has to be more than a little bit difficult, and from what we are hearing Kim Kardashian might just be ready to ignore her mother Kris Jenners's advice and throw in the towel. Just a few short weeks after swapping vows in May, West admitted that being married was already a challenge, and it seems that these last few months have only made things rockier between the two. West seemed to send a pretty clear message by leaving the country for Thanksgiving, but as it turns out, Kardashian may have met with a divorce attorney early in November. According to a source for Radar Online, Kardashian had an elevator blocked off so she could meet discreetly with a high-powered Los Angeles divorce attorney. Apparently, Kardashian expects that a split will get messy, and her biggest concern is the inevitable fight for custody of North West. As it is, West is saying that he intends to move to Paris and make it his permanent home beginning early next year. He is planning on bringing his daughter with him even if Kardashian wants to stay behind in L.A. This type of controlling behavior is one of the things that has reportedly driven Kardashian away from West. She assumed that once they were married things would improve, but just like in her two previous marriages, she has learned the hard way that making it legal changes nothing. In fact, if anything she has just made things more difficult. The fallout from her marriage to Kris Humphries was so disastrous that Jenner has reportedly warned her daughter that her career cannot handle another divorce.READ MORE

Did the Kardashian Family Fake A Happy Thanksgiving Together?

Off-Key 19:54PM EDT

It has been a year full of serious changes and transitions for the Kardashian family and momager Kris Jenner really has done her best to try and keep the family empire up and running in spite of all the chaos. Once she officially split from Bruce Jenner, it seemed like any sense of normalcy that might have existed went right out the window. Kendall and Kylie Jenner have openly struggled to be okay, Khloe and Rob Kardashian both seem fairly lost, while Kourtney Kardashian is pregnant with her third child in spite of her unstable relationship with Scott Disick. Kim Kardashian's business is booming, but sources say that it's at the cost of her marriage. It's a good thing that the Kardashian family all reconvened at Khloe's for Thanksgiving -- or did they?READ MORE

Kim Kardashian's Shady Behavior on Dubai Trip May Have Caused Kanye West to Skip Thanksgiving Dinner with Her Family

Off-Key 11:56AM EDT

Remember last week when we all raised our eyebrows at the fact that Kanye West had decided not only to not spend Thanksgiving with his wife and child, but that he opted to spend it in Paris with his guy friends? Then Kim Kardashian posted some nifty tweets about how happy she was to spend the holiday with her "whole" family, making some wonder if West was no longer part of the equation. Well, we are learning a bit more now, and it seems that perhaps Kardashian's behavior on her trip to Dubai might have ticked off her husband. According to the "Examiner," Kardashian was with a rich man in Dubai for business, and when Tyrese Gibson got a little too flirtatious with her the other man had him removed from the club they were all at. The rules for appropriate behavior between men and women in public are strict in Dubai, so it was not that hard to build a case against Gibson. Ironically, West apparently had no issue allowing his wife to be a paid party escort, but he did have a real problem with her interaction with Gibson. West reportedly thinks that something might have happened between the two of them and that anger and distrust is what led him to cut out right before the holiday.READ MORE

Thanksgiving Apart Leads to Rumors of Trouble in Kim Kardashian's Marriage to Kanye West

Off-Key 15:35PM EDT

It does not take much for Kim Kardashian's marriage to Kanye West to start grabbing some negative headlines. No one has ever accused them of exactly being the most conventional couple in the first place, but for some reason the press goes crazy when they do not play house like everyone else does. Remember, they have a baby, have been married for six months and are still living with Kris Jenner in spite of having mountains of cash for a place of their own. Thanks to reality television, we are all used to seeing the whole Kardashian family together to celebrate the holidays because it is how they have always done it. West was missing from last week's festivities. Not only did he skip out on Thanksgiving dinner at Khloé Kardashian's, but he was actually spotted in Paris dining with two of his best friends rather than spending the holiday with his wife and daughter. Kardashian raised eyebrows by being grateful on social media for having her "whole" family with her on Thanksgiving. She chased that with a photo of little North West out and about on Black Friday and in the caption Kardashian called her daughter her "best friend."READ MORE

'Y&R' Actor Corey Sligh Beaten After Purposely Being Hit By a Car on Thanksgiving

Off-Key 15:21PM EDT

This past Thanksgiving is likely one Corey Sligh will never forget. The actor, who has popped up on "The Young and the Restless" in various roles, stopped at a Rite Aid drug store in Los Angeles with his girlfriend Alisa Berhorst, and one comment lead to a violent altercation, according to "The Hollywood Reporter." The couple was originally making a quick stop before going to help feed those who were less privileged when a car in the parking lot was hopping curbs and doing donuts. Sligh noticed that the two men inside the vehicle were narrowly missing hitting people, and he suggested that they slow down. Instead of doing that, they purposely hit Sligh with the car and then got out and beat him! The men eventually sped off, but later crashed the car and were arrested by police. Sligh is still hospitalized at Cedars Sinai, where he will stay for at least a few more days. He reached out to fans via his Instagram, saying: "Hey kids, went to feed some people last night who don't have blessed thanksgivings and along the way got struck by a drunk driver! Have a surgery to go and another couple days in the hospital but should be fine soon! Thankful to still be on this great planet! Love y'all!"READ MORE

Most of the Kardashian Family Will Be Spending Thanksgiving as Far from Kris Jenner as They Can Get!

Off-Key 11:10AM EDT

Remember when part of the magical effect that the Kardashian family had on people was the ability to make fans jealous? It really did seem, at least for a little while, that life as a member of Kris Jenner's extended family would be simply amazing. Now, a few years after the bottom began falling out, even the most die-hard of fans know otherwise. It was all an illusion especially created for reality television and, unfortunately, Jenner's true reality seems to get more dismal by the week. After confirming that she is dating 25-year-old Corey Gamble, even her kids are refusing to come home for Thanksgiving! Kendall and Kylie Jenner were especially crushed by Kris's divorce from their father Bruce Jenner, and they often side with him. According to Radar Online, both girls are refusing to even deal with their mom's new man and will be spending the holiday with their father. Kourtney Kardashian's relationship with Scott Disick is a mess, so they are passing on Kris's invite. Khloé and Rob Kardashian are both unpredictable and dealing with their own issues, so they are likely to stay away, too. The only family members who are confirmed to be spending Thanksgiving at the family compound are Kim Kardashian and her little family, and that is likely because they still live there!READ MORE

Thanksgiving Parody: Elementary Students Sing Garth Brooks's 'I Got Friends in Low Places' as 'I Hate Yams in All Places' [LISTEN]

Buzz 09:46AM EDT

There is nothing like a good, old-fashioned Thanksgiving parody. DJ Richie Philips at WGNA in Albany, New York, got some elementary school students to sing about their least favorite holiday dish: yams. The kicker? The song is titled "I Hate Yams in All Places" and it is set to the tune of a little ditty made famous by Garth Brooks called "I've Got Friends in Low Places," Taste of Country notes. "It's Thanksgiving Day, there's food that we hate / There's also some foods that we like," the children sing, trying to nail down the melody. "When it's all on my dish, and they serve me fish / I'd rather be out on my bike." The students really give it their all in the video below, and it all comes to a climax at the reworked chorus. "I hate yams in all places / I'd rather chew on my shoelaces / But it's only right to be polite / It's only right to tell my mother / Feed those yams to my brother," they sing.READ MORE

Thanksgiving Day Music Playlist: stuff your face while stuffing your ears with these eight Turkey Day songs [LISTEN]

Thanksgiving is, unfortunately, the holiday that most often gets swept under the rug. Nuzzled in between the Hallmark behemoths that are Halloween and Christmas, Thanksgiving by and large got the pass when it comes to traditional holiday carols. Though there are plenty of songs that capture the spirit of being with family or stuffing your face with ridiculous amounts of food, songs purely for Turkey Day are few and far between.READ MORE
