The reason? As we could imagine, Shakira has had a hard time balancing her coaching and her new-born babe, but admits that while her baby is obvi a priority, leaving The Voice was not an easy decision for her to make.
She explained her choice, saying:
“It was a hard decision for me to make, because I’m really fond of the coaches, the people in production and everybody around me. And I really enjoyed The Voice, but I also have a musical career and I’m also a mother now and my poor baby’s so tired flying such long distances. He already has more miles than any pilot. So I think I have to give him a little break, and we’ll see what happens in the future.”
Her baby’s home is in Barcelona, so flying back and forth from there to El Lay would definitely be some hardcore milage for a newborn!! While we’ll miss the seksi hip-shaking Shakira, we totes support her continuing her music career and taking care of her adorbs little man!!
CarsonDaly reports that the cast is thrilled to have Xtina back, and said:
“We’re all excited. She helped launch the show, and like we’ve said with all of our coaches, this isn’t their day jobs. They’re not celebrity judges, they are real artists and they have to tour and it’s great to have her come back into the fold.”
I haven’t really covered Beyonce and Jay-Z’s controversial trip to Cuba, because who really gives a shit and this is coming from a ho who would live-blog Basement Baby’s trip to Tijuana if she took one. Anyway, some politicians in Florida jumped out of their chonies about this and are trying to get the Treasury Department to find out if Beyonce and Jay-Z broke the embargo. The Treasury Department said that they ok’d their trip to Cuba, but they wouldn’t say why (SPOILER ALERT: Beyonce and Jay-Z got an approval letter from their dad Obama.) Billboard says that Beyonce and Jay-Z’s trip was arranged by Academic Arrangements Abroad, a New York-based educational company that offers group travel to Cuba.
Send “The Jayz’s” (copyright: Dionne Davenport) the Guantanamo! Better yet, let’s punish them by making them take the freeway over and over again.
Here’s the two investors in communism strolling around Cuba a few days ago. I think I’m more concerned by the fact that shameless Beyonce has taken her copy+paste act way too far by stealing clothes from Basement Baby’s dirty laundry basket.
As a special Valentimes Day gift to his fans, which he calls “V’s Angels,” Vin Diesel posted a video on his Facebook page of him beautifully singing along to RiRi’s “Stay” as her video played next to him. Vin Diesel stood in the dark and only let his hands tickle the air a little bit, because he wanted you to focus on taking in the slightly tattered and pitchy musical notes floating out of his singing hole. You can practically picture Vin’s waxed and bleached b-hole clench as he hits those high notes. The musical artistry of it all!
Get out of the tub RiRi, because Vin take it from here.
It feels like Dr. Phil’s interview with RonaiahTuiasosopo, the mastermind behind the Lennay Kekua hoax, has been going on for weeeeeeeks. Every site I go to, I see Dr. Phil’s hard boiled egg with a pubestache face looking at me and this mess is everywhere. During the interview, Ronaiah said that he was in love with Manti Te’o’ and that he used to be gay, but he’s a recovering homosexual now. Is “recovering homosexual” short for “recovering from butt sex homosexual,” because who hasn’t been there? I guess if Man Titty O is “faaaaaaar” from gay, then I guess Ronaiah is like two freeway exists away from gay. He was just at gay, but now he’s driving away from it. Ronaiah also said some other things to Phake Ass Phil, but who cares about that. The only thing I care about is hearing Ronaiah’s lady voice and Dr. Phil was right there with me.
Dr. Phil kept asking Ronaiah to do his Lennay voice, but he got all kinds of shy and wouldn’t do it. He finally agreed to do it behind a screen with a producer watching to make sure the lady sounds were coming out of his mouth. So Ronaiah called a phone and did his best Lennay voice:
He kind of sounds like Michael Jackson with Laryngitis speaking through a pillow. I bet Dr. Phil wasn’t convinced. I bet after the show ended, Dr. Phil called Ronaiah up again and said, “Let me hear you do your Lennay voice one more time. Let me hear you say, ‘Oh, Dr. Phil, let me lick the skin dome covering that brilliant mind of yours.’ Yeah, say it like that. Say it again, slower. Wait, what sound? No, I didn’t just pull my zipper down.“
