Did You Hear?

:: Carrie Underwood has responded to the criticism surrounding NBC’s The Sound of Music special, particularly her take on leading role Maria von Trapp. “Plain and simple: Mean people need Jesus. They will be in my prayers tonight,” she says. [E!]

:: Ellen DeGeneres has taken cues from Kanye West‘s “Bound 2” for her annual Christmas card, as she revealed during her daytime talk show. Who can blame her? Not Seth Rogen and James Franco. []

:: During the Detroit stop of his Magna Carta Holy Grail tour, Jay Z riffed off Nicki Minaj‘s “Beez in the Trap” to the tune of Coldplay‘s “Clocks,” then vibed to his band’s live cover of The White Stripes‘ “Seven Nation Army,” in a minute flat. Made in America, indeed. [YouTube]

:: Britney Spears confesses that her two children, ages eight and seven, may be more in touch with pop culture than she is. “I mean they listen to cooler stuff then I do sometimes,” she says. “They really know what’s in. They are like, ‘Mom, this is really hip,’ and I go in and listen to it on the computer.” [MTV]
