Hollywood Minute - October 18, 2013

"Elle" is defending its newest cover model after critics claim it is trying to cover her up. And Lady Gaga teams up with the Muppets to bring some holiday cheer.
"Elle" magazine is defending its cover featuring Melissa McCarthy.

Critics say the jacket and hair covering the plus-sized actress sends the message that large women must be covered up.

The magazine says stylists worked with the star, just as they do with any cover model... and that McCarthy loved the look.

And nothing raises the holiday spirit like Lady Gaga and the Muppets.

ABC says it'll host a holiday special airing on Thanksgiving night.

Like classic holiday specials in the past, they'll do renditions of Christmas classics. With help from celebrities like Elton John, Rupaul, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
