After some very likable and talented singers were eliminated from the competition last season on ‘The Voice,’ I pretty much gave up on it. The new trailer for the upcoming seventh season gives up a sneak peek of what looks to be a rejuvenated series. Returning coaches Blake Shelton and the now bleach-blonde Adam Levine are joined by hat loving multi-selling winner of everything, Pharrell Williams and the Hollaback Girl herself, Gwen Stefani. Here’s the trailer! Continue Reading
Proud parents-to-be Shakira and Gerard Pique posed for a revealing shoot together to help promote the virtual baby shower for their first child. Along with UNICEF, the shower will give fans a chance to purchase “Inspired Gifts” like mosquito nets and vaccines to help poverty stricken children around the world.
“To celebrate the arrival of our first child, we hope that, in his name, other less privileged children in the world can have their basic needs covered through gifts and donations,” the couple said. The gifts are pretty affordable, for instance a $10 polio vaccine could help up to 17 children or $110 could buy a peanut based paste that can save a malnourished child. More useful than a diaper genie, right?
Shakira has been a global ambassador for UNICEF since 2003, and announced her pregnancy last September. She has never revealed a due date, but the pictures definitely put the rumors that she has already given birth to rest. The link to Shakira and Gerard’s World Baby Shower is HERE.
On top of all that, she is set to work on an album and will join Usher as one of the new coaches on ‘The Voice’ for it’s fourth season.
Looks like Xtinacouldn’t even wait until next week’s episode of The Voice to throw some major shade and bitchface, as Brittani, Ana and I all predicted. Honestly. THIS bitch. Take a look at the hate she spewed about some of the past winners from the show that PAYS her to look like she does:
“[My former act] Chris Mann, prime example,” she said. “Came in fourth last year. It’s like, ultimately, who’s the real winner? Who’s Javier [Colon]? Who’s Jermaine [Paul]? At this point, I think it’s all about Chris Mann, thank you!”
Aguilera added that she believes Duron can be successful without a talent show, citing her own experience of losing Star Search in 1990.
“I lost [a talent show] myself earlier on in my career,” she said. “I’ve gone on to do much bigger and better things – some people don’t even know what Star Search was! I’m sure Dez will say the same in his own way one day.”
Really? My eyes are rolling like a casino slot machine, Xtina.
I will never say that Xtina can’t sing. We all know she can–and she makes sure we know by telling us every gotdamn week, how-bloody-EVER. Her bitter, bored and bitchy demeanor is absolutely intolerable at this point. I’m actually dreading watching her NOT CLAP for contestants after their performances. (Has anyone else noticed that?) Then she’ll look down at her “notes”, not make eye-contact with the nervous contestant in front of her, berate then dismiss them. I’m already grinding my teeth, you guys.
Christina Aguilera has become incredibly unlikable the older she gets, which really isn’t good for business. Her level of malevolence about “The Voice” in general leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Personally, I won’t miss her when she’s gone next season while she “creates new experiences” for herself and “see [her] fans one-on-one”—whatever that crap means.
