Kelly Clarkson burst back on the music scene this fall with her comeback album Meaning of Life — and with it came a new plan of attack for the red carpet.

She worked with stylist Candice Lambert to craft her approach, which Lambert tells PeopleStyle was a tribute “to the ‘90s era of the big singers and cool aesthetics of pop soulful era that Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, En Vogue all came from.” That translated into “a theme for the album that is majority black with pops of gold,” says the stylist. “The vibe is soulful, sexy, strong, and a bit of rock ’n’ roll.

9 Things You Never Knew About Disney's Mulan

  • BuzzSugar
Almost 20 years later - yes, 20 years (cries into pillow) - a live-action version of Mulan is in the works with director Niki Caro at the helm and an actress attached to play Mulan. The original animation is extremely empowering to women, so it's awesome that a female will be behind the lens, controlling our favorite childhood warrior princess's portrayal this time around. As we await our modernized heroine, and her potentially CGI-animated companions Mushu and Cri-Kee, we can look back fondly on the Disney original - because let's be real, we all still revert back to our 7-year-old Capri Sun-loving selves when "I'll Make a Man Out Of You" comes on Pandora. Now that we know when the reimagined film will premiere, let's take a look at nine facts you probably never knew about Disney's first Asian princess and Og girl-power-charged badass.

Will Ferrell Explains His Memorable Whitney Houston-Inspired Commencement Address

Will Ferrell Explains His Memorable Whitney Houston-Inspired Commencement Address
Will Farrell will always love University of Southern California's 2017 graduating class.

The 50-year-old actor gave a commencement address to remember at the university's graduation in May, when he sang a beautiful rendition of Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You" -- so beautiful, in fact, that his performance is still being talked about.

During a recent appearance on The Graham Norton Show, Ferrell recalled his epic speech, revealing why he decided to send students off with a musical moment.

"I hadn’t been put in that position before because usually I just make fun of things,” Ferrell admitted. “I just told them to keep your feet firmly planted on the ground and reach for the stars -- which I read on the back of a cereal box.”

The actor further inspired those in the audience -- and on the internet -- by singing a good chunk of "I Will Always Love You."
