John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John are coming out with a joint Christmas album this year!

And Barbra Streisand will appear on it!

And just look at the cover!!!!!

Close-up of the cover. Who do you think is wearing the better wig?

Does he have alopecia or something? He looks like he's gluing on his eyebrows now.

by Anonymousreply 210/02/2012

OK, I am kind of excited about this!

by Anonymousreply 310/02/2012

He's dyeing his hair and eyebrows way too dark and it looks freakish.

by Anonymousreply 410/02/2012

I'm excited about this, too. I saw ONJ in concert a few weeks ago in San Francisco and the crowd were wild for her. She looked and sounded great. John Travolta will probably be auto-tuned to hell and back. It will be interesting to hear Babs thrown into this mix.

Really? After all these years?

Why, he's just the picture of heterosexuality in that photo, isn't he?

by Anonymousreply 710/02/2012

That's one gay stocking stuffer.

OMG, I want this! I'm actually crying as I'm typing this...oh my GAWD!!

by Anonymousreply 910/02/2012

I wouldn't have recognised Olivia in that photo (and not in a good way).

by Anonymousreply 1010/02/2012

She doesn't look like herself and he looks awful. He should stop dying his hair black. It doesn't suit a 60 year old man. If he doesn't want to go grey, he should lighten up - a lighter brown color, perhaps.

Ahhh! I love JT, but have to say he looks like he's got my old GI Joe doll's head of hair.

by Anonymousreply 1410/02/2012

Figures they would lead with that "charming" Baby it's Cold Outside.

by Anonymousreply 1510/02/2012

This is sad. I just know Andy Gibb would've been on this album...had he lived. And they have the gall to smile.

by Anonymousreply 1610/02/2012

Is that some The Onion type of joke?

by Anonymousreply 1710/02/2012

LOL, r14. I wonder if he has also has kung fu grip.

by Anonymousreply 1810/02/2012

I love the cover photo: "It's Christmas, girrrllll!"

by Anonymousreply 1910/02/2012

Cliff Richard too? Be still my beating 70's heart.

And I still miss Andy Gibb.

by Anonymousreply 2010/02/2012



I might have to buy this, just for the cheese factor alone.

by Anonymousreply 2110/02/2012

He's a disgraceful closet queen who needs to come out and stop promoting shame.

Why does the press and Hollywood continue to cover for him.

by Anonymousreply 2210/02/2012

It's not really a duet. Olivia is singing "I Saw Johnny Kissing Some Guy Dressed Up As Santa Claus."

by Anonymousreply 2310/02/2012

Wonder why she doesn't do something with her daughter? She's a singer too. I doubt ONJ likes her very much. Iv'e always thought that.

by Anonymousreply 2410/02/2012

Should be titled, "A Very MARY! Christmas."

by Anonymousreply 2510/02/2012

The album looks kind of fun and super gay, but what's up with his painted eyebrows?

by Anonymousreply 2610/02/2012

In that photo she looks like Victoria Jackson twenty years ago.

Do Scientologists celebrate Christmas?

Only Jehovah's Witnesses and Jews don't celebrate Christmas.

"with a joint Christmas album this year!" totally kept this thread from being relevant.

by Anonymousreply 3010/02/2012

"I Think You Might Like It" is a new song by the guy who wrote their hit "You're the One That I Want." I'll give that one a listen.

by Anonymousreply 3110/03/2012

The CD is out! Has anyone bought it?

by Anonymousreply 3212/01/2012

I have, R32. It's absolutely unlistenable. Travolta doesn't so much sing as talk his way through songs. Just try to make it through "Baby, It's Cold Outside" -it's so dreary it sounds like a record played on the wrong speed. When James Taylor finally shows up on a song, you hope it's to slash Travolta's throat.

by Anonymousreply 3312/01/2012

Thanks, R33!

And here are some reviews from

[quote] 5 stars - the voices are great

[quote] 5 stars - It is a joy to hear these two on record again.

[quote] 5 stars - both Olivia and John sound thrilling and fantastic here

[quote] 2 stars - It's hard to make a more disappointing 'follow-up' than Two Of A Kind, but John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John have managed it with This Christmas!

[quote] 1 star - I've been a long time fan of ONJ, but this cd is complete garbage.

[quote] 1 star - Ugh. Cat farts and baby splats.

by Anonymousreply 3412/01/2012

R24, Donna Summer never recorded with any of her daughters either, all of whom sing, one is an active recording artist.

Olivia's daughter might sing, but she hasn't had any success. A shelved album in 2006, a failed single only released in Japan in 2010. Maybe she just isn't that good.

by Anonymousreply 3512/01/2012

The title should be

John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John are coming out

Both are closeted beyond belief.

And at least Travolta is a good dad, not llke that mess Newton-John gave birth to.

See young Olivia before she dyed her hair

by Anonymousreply 3612/02/2012

R22 Or maybe, the question should be: Why we, openly gay, continue to cover for closeted gays?

by Anonymousreply 3712/02/2012

I see John is donning now his gay apparel!

by Anonymousreply 3812/02/2012

Has Lily Tomlin ever commented about John's sexuality?

by Anonymousreply 3912/02/2012

Eww Jermaine Jackson hair.

by Anonymousreply 4012/02/2012

Olivia Newton John now looks like Pia Zadora.

And I think at this point, Travolta should just shave his head and use black shoe polish.

by Anonymousreply 4112/02/2012

That is such a cheesy album cover. It screams: "This photo was taken in July with $20 of props!"

by Anonymousreply 4212/02/2012

Travolta's medicated talking on that sluggish "Baby It's Cold Outside (So Stay Here So I Can Rape You)" was excruciating.

I can only imagine the Scientology drones were deployed to fill the page with 5-star reviews.

by Anonymousreply 4312/02/2012

Recipe for disaster. It'll end up as ashtrays in gay households.

by Anonymousreply 4412/02/2012

How the hell do you look like Olivia Newton-John and wind up giving birth to a gargoyle?

by Anonymousreply 4512/02/2012

Barbra previously recorded 'I'll Be Home For Christmas", so I have an inkling that her 'appearance' on this album consists of them using her old tracks to sing a duet or trio with.

by Anonymousreply 4612/02/2012

Too bad she mutilated herself. She should have put on 20lbs to fill out the face and age naturally with a nice gray bob....oh well. She could have been a beautiful older woman.

by Anonymousreply 4712/02/2012

Doesn't make him any less gay.

by Anonymousreply 4812/02/2012

LOL r38!

by Anonymousreply 4912/02/2012

Only a closeted gay man who wants the world to believe he's straight would think "I know! A campy Christmas album will convince the world I like the ladies."
