Buzz Bites (12/12/13): R. Kelly Is Prepping A ‘Lovemaking’ Christmas Album

R. Kelly has announced that he will record a lovemaking Christmas album.

Kells has set his sights on the naughty list for Christmas 2014.

+ R. Kelly‘s Black Panties may have just dropped, but the “Cookie” singer is already working on a new album tentatively titled The 12 Nights Of Christmas. “It’s gonna be a lot of lovemaking, and I come with that bearing gifts,” he said of the disc. You’ll have to wait until next year to heat up your sweetheart’s holiday, however, as it’s not due until 2014. (MTV News)

+ In other holiday-themed news, listen to snippets from Sweetheart 14, a Valentine’s Day compilation that will be available at Starbucks. Fiona Apple, Vampire Weekend, Beck, and The Head And The Heart are among the artists covering romantic tracks for the set. (Pitchfork)

+ Could the Spice Girls reunite in 2014? “It will be our 20th year anniversary next year so I’m hoping we do get together and do something,” Mel B. said. If they do, it’s unlikely Victoria Beckham would be onboard, as she said of their 2008 reunion: “the passion just wasn’t there.” (MTV News)

+ As the highest-paid woman in music, Madonna reigns supreme as the Queen of Pop. According to Forbes, the Material Girl raked in $125 million this past year. Lady Gaga came in at No. 2, Taylor Swift sits at No. 3, Beyoncé hit No. 4, and Jennifer Lopez rounds out the Top 5 earners. (E!)

+ Speaking of Bey, the “God Made You Beautiful” singer has announced additional 2014 dates for “The Mrs. Carter Show” World Tour plus a new fragrance called Rise. (Idolator)

+ Listen to RZA‘s touching tribute to Nelson Mandela, “Gift Of Hope.” The Wu-Tang Clan member recruited singer Will Wells for the soaring piano ballad. (MTV News)

+ Watch Wiz Khalifa play elf to Tom Hanks’ Santa Claus. The pair posed for what might as well have been their holiday card with an audience member during “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” While elf Wiz initially didn’t look too thrilled, he did end up smiling for the camera. (Rap-Up)
