The Voice Results – A Shocking Elimination


There was something that I realized on Monday night about ‘The Voice’ this season that made me a little mad. I’ll get to that in a bit, because this results show was jam packed with performances. Sheryl Crow performed with Team Blake on her song “Who Needs Mexico,” a nice, summery song, but it’s no “My Favorite Mistake.”

The first of the duets was between Michelle Chamuel and Judith Hill, singing Calvin Harris and Florence Welch‘s “Sweet Nothing.” I thought they both sounded great here and they didn’t drown each other out. We also learned that Michelle was the first saved artist of the night, which made me worry about Judith.

I said I wanted one of the R&B girls to do something with one of the Country artists, and the show delivered. Sasha Allen joined The Swon Brothers for Jason Aldean and Kelly Clarkson‘s “Don’t You Wanna Stay.” This proves how versatile Sasha is, and she got in some really great notes. The brothers also kept their harmonies tight. The next saved singer was Danielle Bradbery.

Then Danielle teamed up with Sarah Simmons for Christina Perri‘s “A Thousand Years.” I can’t say that I enjoyed this, though they both sounded pretty good. Sarah was a bit pitchy, and they just didn’t seem to connect at all.

The next contestant to be saved is Sasha, which surprised her coach Shakira. She jumped for joy, hugging her and Usher, who also got to keep his one team member. That meant Adam Levine and Blake Shelton would be saying goodbye to one of their faves.

The last of the duets was between Holly Tucker and Amber Carrington with “Does He Love You” by Reba McEntire and Linda Davis. Here I realized that Holly and Amber are kind of the same person, and I wouldn’t mind if one of them went home, even though they are both good singers. The next artists saved are The Swon Brothers.

That left Amber, Holly, Judith and Sarah left on the chopping block and I was not happy. Judith had to be safe, right? After that killer performance from Monday night, and the fact that she’s been kicking ass all season, she had to be! Well, she wasn’t. Along with Sarah, she was kicked off. I was seriously shocked.

Again, Amber and Holly are great, but they tend to do the same thing, at least Judith was taking chances. Like Julia, I’m totally on Team Usher, and Team Shakira, but I couldn’t help but be annoyed at how Country is dominating this season. I know Blake and Adam are the veteran coaches, but you can’t tell me that their contestants, with the exception of Sasha, are really worthy of winning this year. I’m not going to say the show is rigged, this ain’t ‘American Idol,’ but WTF is going on?

I’m not even going to ask if the right people went home because they didn’t so there! I’m just…really emotional. Excuse me.

[Ed. Note: I am 100% with Brittani on this bullshit. How many little blonde country girls does The Voice need? Middle America pisses me right off. I predict Blake’s little teenager will win. See? I can’t even remember her name. Oh, and rumor has it that Adam muttered something to the effect of ,”I hate this country“.  I’m assuming he means the over-abundance of white, blonde country music in this season’s competition. – DivaJulia]

Gwyneth Paltrow Named ‘World’s Most Beautiful Woman’ By People Magazine


Oddly enough, this is the issue we found in our P.O Boxes!


Apparently People magazine is running out of stars to bestow this “honor” to. You see, Gwyneth Paltrow has a new movie coming out, ‘Iron Man 3′ which is why she’s been bombarding us with her off-putting personality more than usual, and the only other reason why the mag thought she would be a good candidate for this. Naturally, the other stars featured in this are more worthy of the title, but don’t have publicists working overtime to quench their client’s thirst.

She doesn’t even try in her interview, spewing the same crap actresses say when they want to be relatable , but this is Goop Poop so she really believes this stuff.

Around the house, I’m in jeans and a T-shirt. I don’t really wear makeup.”  As for her husband, Chris Martin, “He’ll make a joke about it. If I’ve gotten fully dressed up, he’ll be like, ‘Oh, wow! You’re Gwyneth Paltrow!’ Because he’s used to seeing me in like baggy shorts and frizzy hair.” I’m sure, she also threw in this gem about landing the cover, “It’s a very iconic cover in American culture, so it’s just amazing. And I think people feel really happy for you when you say you’re going to be in the issue.”

There’s been much talk about her dietary habits, but I think the real way she stays so thin and “healthy looking” is that her head is stuck so far up her own ass it keeps her from eating. [Cut to DivaJulia laugh-choke-spit-taking sparkling water all over her laptop screen. Not. Even. Kidding.]  Also featured in the ‘World’s Most Beautiful’ issue are Kerry Washington, singer Pink and legendary actress Jane Fonda.

The issue hits newsstands on Friday, but you probably won’t be buying it.


Jennifer Aniston Cuts Her Hair (Eyeroll…)

Aniston in Spain

Photos: INF

First it was Justin Bieber, who cut his precious hair yesterday, now this? Nevermind that there are horrific earthquakes in New Zealand, Somali pirates killing innocent folks on their boat, and whales washing up on the shore and dying in droves…Jennifer Aniston cut her hair, and apparently we just want to self-soothe and rock ourselves in the corner with our laptops by obsessing about THIS idiocy.

The tanned, lonely spinster cut her hair and showed up with the chopped brassiness in Spain while whoring out that awful Adam Sandler movie.  Bigger news than Moammar Kadafi refusing resign as head Cockroach of Libya.

And the full-length photo of the Cat Lady.

Ever feel like what you do with your day is a complete and utter waste?  I’m sure YOU don’t…you aren’t the one actually writing about this drivel.

Hey! Tosh.0 is on tonight!  That’ll make me feel better for 23 minutes.
