Kacey Musgraves was one of the most talked about artists after last month's CMA Awards because of her odd reaction to Miranda Lambert's acceptance speech when Miranda beat her out for Female Vocalist of the Year.
Miranda was complimenting her competition in the category, including Kacey, who seemed to stare at Miranda with an angry expression.
Kacey has finally opened up about that moment, telling Rolling Stone that it was all a big misunderstanding. Kacey said, “As a new artist, I’m still getting used to cameras being on me 24/7, and there’s no way you can be caught smiling at all times. If you know me, sometimes when I’m just sitting there, it looks like I’m not having a good time, but I am!”
Kacey added, “I’ve reached out to Miranda and let her know that that I didn’t mean anything. We laughed about how dumb those things can get. I don’t like that because it can take away from music at certain points. I didn’t mean anything by that. It’s funny because I was clapping and smiling before and after that clip. I guess I’m still kind of getting used to everything. If anyone should be offended, it should be me! I mean, did you see my face? I look like a dumba**. It was a long day. My feet were hurting.”
In other Kacey news, the singer recently wrote with pop star Katy Perry for the follow up to her Same Trailer, Different Park album.
We've all heard of air mail, but Amazon.com has plans to take it to a whole new level. The e-tailer is testing delivering orders to their customers using drones, CEO Jeff Bezos revealed during an interview with 60 Minutes on Sunday.
Although the technology is at least three-to-four years away, Amazon already has a name for their delivery service that would use small, unmanned aircraft. They're calling it Prime Air. Bezos said the goal of the new delivery service is to have packages in the hands of their customers in 30 minutes or less.

What do you think of Black Friday? It seems many Americans might be tiring of the post-Turkey-Day scramble for electronics and other items. A survey from Deloitte finds that 53-percent of consumers plan to shop online or head to the store for Black Friday deals, and while that percentage is high it is down from 60-percent who said the same last year. Belinda McConnell, with Deloitte says, "There is less urgency around getting the Black Friday deal on Black Friday. The novelty of 'Black Thursday' has worn off a little, and we're hearing more consumers say they'll avoid the crowds in the stores on Black Friday." Consumers seem to be planning to spread out there holiday shopping over the course of the season, and not do it all in one day. (Forbes)
Here are some facts about the turkey you'll be eating on Thanksgiving:
The 87th annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade will kick off at 9 a.m. on Thursday (November 28th), featuring the iconic giant helium character balloons -- weather permitting -- floats, marching bands, dancers, clowns, celebrities, Broadway show performances, the Radio City Rockettes, and much more before ending with the traditional arrival of Santa Claus to usher in the holiday season. The nationally-televised parade will wind its way on a route through the streets of Manhattan before ending at Macy's flagship store on 34th Street.
There is a question about whether the parade's signature giant balloons will be able to fly this year because of weather conditions. City rules say that if there are sustained winds over 23 miles per hour and gusts over 34 mph, the balloons can't be used. The current forecast is close, calling for sustained winds of 20 mph and gusts of 36 mph. Macy's says the determination will be made on Thanksgiving morning based on real-time weather conditions. The balloons were grounded only once in the parade's history, in 1971, because of bad weather.
BALLOONS: If the giant helium balloons do get off the ground, there will be 15 of them this year, including four new additions:
There will also be a special giant hot air balloon celebrating the 75th anniversary of the The Wizard of Oz, featuring images of the characters from the classic film and carrying the wizard himself. Accompanying it will be Dorothy and balloonhead characters of the Scarecrow, Tin Man, Cowardly Lion and the Wicked Witch of the West.
To celebrate the first time in the parade's history that Thanksgiving falls on the first night of Hanukkah, there'll also be a special spinning dreidel balloonicle.
FLOATS: There are five new floats among the 30 in the line-up:
CELEBRITIES: Among the celebrities who'll be appearing are: singers Kristin Chenoweth; Gavin DeGraw; Brett Eldredge; Fall Out Boy; The Roots, joined by Jimmy Fallon; Florida Georgia Line; Goo Goo Dolls; Ariana Grande; Joan Jett and the Blackhearts; Sharon Jones and The Dap Kings;Austin Mahone; Kellie Pickler; and Mannheim Steamroller; The Robertson family from Duck Dynasty; TV personalities Sandra Lee and Richard Simmons; Miss America 2014 Nina Davuluri; NFL legendsJoe Namath, Bart Oates, Amani Toomer and Hines Ward, and NHL legends Cam Neely and Mike Richter.
PEFORMANCES: The first hour of the broadcast will include performances from the Broadway musicals Matilda and Motown, and a special appearance by Carrie Underwood and other cast members from NBC's upcoming, The Sound of Music Live!
