Jewel Is Divorcing Her Husband & Her Conscious Uncoupling Statement Is Out-Gwynething Gwyneth

My husband, friend and partner of 16 years and I have decided to get a divorce.

Ty and I have always tried to live the most authentic life possible, and we wanted our separation as husband and wife to be nothing less loving than the way we came together. For some time we have been engaged in a private and difficult, but thoughtful and tender undoing of ourselves. Allowing ourselves the time and space to redefine what we are to each other with love rather than malice.

We have been so aware that it is easiest to use the inertia of anger to leverage two souls apart who have been bound together by so much living. By a child.  But we did not want anger to burn the ties that bound us. Instead we have chosen the much more difficult task of undoing ourselves stitch by stitch, and releasing each other with love so that we may take on our new form: dear friends and devoted co-parents of our beloved son Kase. We have no desire to damage ourselves and each other in the process. Who better than each other to bear witness to the heart ache of redefining our family?  And who better as ally, while we learn to redraw ourselves in whatever new shape we find as separate people who are still striving to be the best versions of ourselves- as humans and as parents.

This is part of Jewel‘s personal statement on her web site announcing a divorce from her husband of six years, rodeo champion Ty Murray. Oh, but it continues: Continue reading

Did Jewel Fix Her Snaggletooth?

Breaking news! Notoriously snaggletoothed singer Jewel is sporting a decidedly straighter smile. She tweeted a photo of herself on the set of the upcoming June Carter Cash biopic she’s filming for Lifetime, writing that she now has “perfect teeth.” Given that she never “fixed” her teeth in the years she’s been rich and famous, I’m gonna guess that she’s wearing a mouthpiece and that her snaggle remains unharmed. I’m glad! Jewel is beautiful — and she looks lovely as June — but her crooked smile has always made her unique. Honestly, she almost looks unrecognizable — who knew teeth made such a difference?
