3.  “Coloring Book”, Chance the Rapper

 

4.  “Teens of Denial”, Car Seat Headrest

Of course, there’s still a month left in 2016, so they jumped the gun a little.  It’s unclear how many albums they were able to hear that aren’t out yet . . . other than the new Stones album, which is on their list. That said, there aren’t many high profile albums set to come out over the next month.  John Legend and Childish Gambino have albums coming this week,   and Neil Young is releasing one next week.

Five Subtle Signs You’re Good in Bed

Bored-Couple-in-Bedroom-e1368058526996

 

A recent survey found 75% of people think they’re above average in bed.  Which statistically can’t be true.  But here are five subtle signs you MIGHT actually be better than average in the sack . . .

1.  You’re empathetic.  If you pay attention to other people’s feelings and needs in general, you probably do it in bed too.

 

2.  You’re a good kisser.  Some people are naturally good at it, and some people learn how to be.  But if you’re NOT a good kisser, then you’re probably not great at all the other stuff either.

 

3.  You’re spontaneous.  It’s a sign you don’t get stuck in the habit of doing the same thing all the time.  Being spontaneous and willing to try new things usually makes you better in bed.

 

4.  You’re confident.  Most people agree confidence is sexy.  Which doesn’t necessarily mean you’re confident in bed, but it does tend to carry over.

 

5.  You’re good with animals.  Or more specifically, you’re good at petting them.  Some people get a little too rough with cats and dogs, because they don’t pay attention to what they want.  Meaning they might not pay attention to what YOU want either.

JERRY SEINFELD has been the world’s highest-paid comedian since 2006.  But this is the year his reign ends.  The new king of the mountain is KEVIN HART.  And it’s not even close. Kevin has made $87.5 million over the past year . . . compared to Seinfeld’s $43.5 million.  That’s more than DOUBLE Jerry’s haul.  A big reason for Kevin’s massive income is his relentless touring. Meanwhile, AMY SCHUMER became the first woman to ever make the list.  She came in fourth, with $17 million . . . just behind ventriloquist TERRY FATOR, who banked $21 million.

 

Here’s the Top 10 . . .

 

1.  Kevin Hart, $87.5 million.

 

2.  Jerry Seinfeld, $43.5 million.

 

3.  Terry Fator, $21 million.

 

4.  Amy Schumer, $17 million.

 

5.  Jeff Dunham, $13.5 million.  (Yes, TWO puppet guys in the Top 10.  Where did we go wrong, America?)

 

6.  Dave Chappelle, $13 million.

 

7.  Jim Gaffigan, $12.5 million.

 

8.  Gabriel Iglesias, $9.5 million.

 

9.  Russell Peters, $9 million.
