Chris Colfer (Kurt) is kickin’ off his vacation with a brand new buddy! He tweeted on Wednesday that he just bought a Betta Fish and named it Lady Gaga... though as it turns out, not everybody is a fan of Gaga (WHAT?), as Chris explained, “I don’t think it likes its name. I’ve never seen a fish roll its eyes before.”

Lea Michele (Rachel) wrapped up her holiday shopping a few days early, and is spending time with castmates Darren Criss (Blaine), Harry Shum Jr. (Mike), and Dianna Agron (Quinn), who described the weather in NYC is “wonderfully cold. But not frozen.” Then on Wednesday, Lea was eagerly anticipating a reunion with another cast, tweeting: “It wouldn't be a trip to NYC without a Spring Awakening reunion cant wait to see my SA family!” That probably means she’ll have some bonding time with SA co-star and real-life bestie Jonathan Groff (Jesse). Can we come?!

After appearing on Leno, Amber Riley (Mercedes) told fans,“This was one of the best days of my life :) I LOVE to sing, you can see it all in the faces I make.” The music lover in her also spent her Thursday night, December 22, cheering on the top three contestants on the X Factor USA finale — especially ultimate winner Melanie Amaro. Tweeted Amber of the Simon Cowell-groomed songbird, “ Listened to Melanie sing "Listen" like five times and I am a blubbering mess in tears. So amazing to watch her journey and see her win! :)“ Maybe we’ll hear one of Melanie’s songs on Glee some day...
