I’d imagine Kate Middleton had to take some fancy pants lamaze class, complete with a midwife who tells her how to “breathe like a lady,” before she had Prince George. Now that royal baby number two is on the way, the Dutchess probably has to do it all over again, cooped up in Kensington Palace with old, stuffy broads who used to give birth in barns. But how fun would it be if she could take a class with other famous expecting moms and dads, like the newly pregnant Blake Lively? We’ve put together a list of 8 expecting couples who should join Kate and Wills in what would be the best. lamaze. class. EVER.
Out Of The Blue, an insanely talented student a cappella group from Oxford University, busted out a medley of Shakira tunes in a charity performance. Each download of the song raises money for Helen and Douglas House, an Oxford children’s hospice. These choir boys are cute enough as is, but when they break out their hip-heavy dance moves, they’re even better! Even Shakira herself loved the performance, and told them so on Twitter. Watch them harmonize beautifully to “Hips Don’t Lie,” “Whenever, Wherever,” and “Waka Waka (This Time For Africa).” [Huffington Post]
Welp, now I’ve heard everything. A few conspiracy theorists have decided that the rapper Pitbull predicted the Malaysian Airlines plane crash/disappearance two years ago in his song “Get It Started” (above). These folks with too much time on their hands — i.e. YouTube commenters — say the lyrics to the song makes references to certain aspects of the plane’s mysterious disappearance. Specifically, “No Ali, No Frasier, but for now off to Malaysia” and “Two passports, three cities, two countries, one day.” According to the UK’s Daily Mirror:
Viewers on YouTube are convinced the two passports is a reference to the stolen Austrian and Italian passports used by two Iranians to board MH370. They also believe the three cities refer to the capital cities of Malaysia, China and Vietnam and the two countries are Malaysia and Vietnam. Furthermore, they assert the lyrics “No Ali, No Frasier, but for now off to Malaysia” are a reference to Mr Ali, the man who bought tickets for the two Iranians to travel on board MH370.

Out of all the gorgeous gowns I saw on the red carpet and on stage at last night’s ACM Awards, the Kristian Aadnevik corset dress Shakira wore to perform “Medicine” with Blake Shelton was my absolute favorite. My reaction to it was a combination of “Oh my God she looks amazing,” and “Oh my God I want to be wearing that right now!” And while most of us don’t have that many opportunities to wear a skimpy corset dress in real life, we can definitely make some opportunities to wear the lacy red lingerie that inspired it. Click through to check out a few fabulous slips, bras, and corsets to bring a little sexy Shakira style into your bedroom (or under your work clothes, if you’re feeling particularly daring!)…
“He’s very territorial, and since he no longer lets me do videos with men, well, I have to do them with women. It’s more than implied in our relationship that I can’t do videos like I used to. It’s out of the question – which I like, by the way. I like that he protects his turf and he values me, in a way that the only person that he would ever let graze my thigh would be Rihanna.”
This is Shakira in Billboard, revealing that she had to ask her boyfriend Gerard Piqué for PERMISSION to film her music video “Can’t Remember To Forget You” with Rihanna. And it seems the Rihanna duet wasn’t just an artistic choice; it was a necessity, as Piqué “no longer lets” Shakira film music videos with men. (The couple reportedly met while filming a music video together.) For the love of Beyoncé, please let there be something lost in translation here! [Billboard [Photo: Getty]
