JOHN TRAVOLTA and OLIVIA NEWTON-JOHN hit the studio together for the first time in nearly 35 YEARS to record a holiday album called "This Christmas". In addition to the cheesy title, it has a cheesy cover, and features cheesy guests. The album comes out on November 13th.
Former "Grease" stars JOHN TRAVOLTA and OLIVIA NEWTON-JOHN hit the studio together for the first time in nearly 35 YEARS . . . to record a holiday album titled "This Christmas".
--No, that definitely isn't the most inventive title.
--According to AllMusic.com, that two-word title has already been used 38 TIMES . . . and that doesn't include a ton of other similar titles, like ARETHA FRANKLIN'S "This Christmas, Aretha".
--Fortunately, when you look at the cover, you won't be looking at the title . . . because you're going to be distracted by the AMAZINGLY CHEESY photo.
--It shows them sitting behind some presents . . . and John is leaning his head on Olivia's, while they hold mugs of hot cocoa and smile with OPEN MOUTHS.
--Obviously, that part is over-the-top . . . but on the flip side, the decorations in the background could use some attention. It looks like the budget for this was $11.35.
(--You just have to see it. Here's the picture.) (Photo Source)
--There are also a bunch of cheesy guests, including: Barbra Streisand, Kenny G, Tony Bennett, James Taylor, Cliff Richard and Chick Corea.
--"This Christmas" hits stores on November 13th . . . in PLENTY OF TIME to be your go-to White Elephant gift. (--And you can feel good about it, because the proceeds will go to John and Olivia's charities.)
(--Speaking of Christmas music tag-teams, CEE LO GREEN has a Christmas album on the way . . . and it'll feature a duet with CHRISTINA AGUILERA on "Baby It's Cold Outside". There's a 90-second preview on SoundCloud.com.)
(--The album "Cee Lo's Magic Moment" comes out October 30th.)
