Besides snuggling in a large blanket and sipping on some hot, bitter coffee, I love being able to just pop in my earphones and live in my alternate universe. When I listen to music, it allows me to live the life that I wish I lived. I love being able to be about to visualize the life I want just by listening to music. I have gathered up several songs that I will be listening to this December. December is cozy, warm, yet bitter and distant so I tried to gather up tunes that remind me of December for this playlist. These are some of my current favorites that are new or some that are older gems. I love being able to find new music to me, whether it was made years ago or just a week ago.

Now, I'm no Hollywood starlet, but I am pretty sure when you're a multi-millionaire pop-star, comparing your relationship with other equally privileged members of the glitterati to an autoimmune disease is a good way to lose fans fast.

We are of course talking about a recent interview with "Royals" singer #Lorde and a major case of foot in mouth!
I Dissed A Girl And I Liked It: Music Producer Joseph Kahn Supports Taylor Swift In Katy Perry Feud
Here's betting that #KatyPerry wishes she could just "Swish Swish" her magic wand and get the latest chapter in her very public debacle out the way. Perry's latest single, "Swish Swish," has once again reignited the "Bad Blood" between her and fellow pop princess #TaylorSwift. Although Perry maintains that lyrics about a "selfish sheep" are about no one person in particular, she has said that her latest song does have an anti-bullying message — possibly still a dig at Swift.

Stan You Believe It? Eminem's 'Stan' Officially Makes It Into the Oxford Dictionary
Talk about taking your sweet time, however, boy do we have a throwback for you. Some 17 years after Marshall Mathers rocketed up the charts with "Stan," becoming one of the best-known rap songs of the 21st century, the song's title has been accepted into the Oxford English Dictionary. Personally, I hadn't actually heard of the term since about 2003, but now "stan" joins the Holy Grail of wordery alongside the likes of "bantz," "brain fart," and "wine o'clock."

The Struts: Your New Favorite Band
It may be a stretch, but I think the Struts might just save rock-and-roll. The first time I found the Struts, I was on the search for Humbug-esque (Arctic Monkeys 2009 album) music.
