- Darren Aronofsky, the acclaimed director of films such as “Black Swan,” “The Wrestler” and “Requiem for a Dream” will soon tackle his most difficult and disturbing project yet — “Lulu,” the recent Lou Reed/Metallica collaboration. He will direct a video for the song “Iced Honey.”

- One of the NFL’s Thanksgiving offerings features the Detroit Lions hosting the Green Bay Packers. The halftime entertainment for the game is Nickelback. And some people in Detroit don’t like that and are trying to do something about it.

- And speaking of music on Thanksgiving, Lady Gaga will premiere a Thanksgiving special that night on ABC. Tony Bennett will make a guest appearance.
