No Doubt is back! The band released their first single in 9 years called “Settle Down” at midnight, much to the chagrin of fans on the East Coast like myself. You can purchase it here on iTunes and flail around your room like you were 12. I may or may not have done just that.
The band premiered the video, directed by Sophie Muller, exclusively on E! which also featured a half-hour special about the band from Ryan Seacrest. Does anyone else think it’s weird that artists go to networks like E! to premiere videos instead of channels like MTV, BET and VH1 like in the olden days? Well anyways, it’s here and it’s awesome!
Their album, Push and Shove will be out on September 25. You can see the band perform on the Teen Choice Awards on Sunday night, and Good Morning America on Friday July 27.
Ugh. This is tough. E!‘s correspondent and reality show star, Guiliana Rancic has made the very difficult choice of undergoing a double mastectomy after being diagnosed with breast cancer earlier this year.
“Appearing with husband Bill Rancic on NBC’s Today show, the E! host, 36, said the couple considered another lumpectomy and radiation. But they are choosing the more drastic option, she said, because they want to be sure the cancer is gone, and make it much less likely to return – less than a 1 percent chance, according to her doctors.
“For me, it was important to get the cancer out,” she said. “That’s what I wanted to do, just get it out.” The couple’s desire for children did play a part. The years of medication that follow the lumpectomy-radiation option would have meant delaying parenthood for several years. But the real decision was more basic than that.
“At the end, to be honest, all it came down to was just choosing to live, and not looking over my shoulder for the rest of my life,” Rancic said.
She said her husband’s support was crucial in reaching the decision. “Bill said to me, ‘I just need you around for the next 50 years, kid,’ ” she said. “He said, ‘I don’t care what you look like, I don’t care about the physical portion of this. I just need you around for the next 50 years. So, let’s just get you healthy.’ And that certainly helped me come to a decision.”
She added: “I couldn’t be more at peace with the decision. But it’s hard, and I still break down some nights … But I’m okay.”
Wow. God bless you, Guiliana. What a devastating, yet more than likely life-saving decision to make.
