Gwen Stefani sang “Hella Good” on “The Voice” last night, and while it definitely wasn’t a full-on No Doubt reunion, Gwen totally rocked it. Instead of the rest of the band, Pharrell Williams, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton awkwardly stagebombed the whole thing. They don’t exactly give off the right level of badassery to match Gwen, but she carried the whole thing like the rockstar that she is, and the dudes get points for effort I guess. “Don’t Speak” next, please!
Shocking! Christina Aguilera cares more about her five-year-old son, Max, than exercise. It seems that we’re supposed to be surprised enough for that statement to be worthy of a headline. Apparently, she’s expected to be a veggie-eating robot who delegates the “child” nonsense to nannies in favor of spending extra hours alone on the treadmill. Keep reading »
Cher performed her new single, “Woman’s World” on the season four finale of NBC’s “The Voice” last night. She basically rocked it, but not without being super weird as only Cher can be.
There were two main things that surprised me about Cher’s performance. The first was her hair choice. This was the ultimate source of weirdness as far as I’m concerned. There must have been at least three wigs involved in the making of this hairpiece. It is so many things at once. It is both a bright pink fauxhawk and a sleek black hairstyle. I can’t really say that I have anything to compare it to. Cher described her look as “luxe punk” which sounds so cool that I can’t even be that mad about her hair. Keep reading »
On last night’s episode of “The Voice,” Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton opened the show with a staggeringly beautiful acoustic version of “Over You.” The couple, who live in Oklahoma, originally wrote the song to honor Shelton’s brother who passed away in 1990, but retooled it slightly to pay tribute to the victim’s of this week’s devastating tornado. Watch their performance above, and click here to find out how you can help the recovery and rebuilding effort. [YouTube via EW]
I know it happened on Monday, but I am behind on life. Please forgive me. That’s just the pace I’m moving at these days. If you are slow like me and/or don’t watch “The Voice” because it’s gotten annoying with all its striving to be like a sports season, I will watch for you and let you know when there’s something you need to know about. OK! You need to know about Sarah Simmons and her cover of The Rolling Stones’ “Wild Horses.” This is one of my favorite songs and it’s been covered extensively, so I think it’s hard to blow this record out the box. In my opinion, Sarah did. I watched it 17 times last night before bed and yes, I cried a little. What of it? It spoke to my spirit animal, which very well may be a wild horse. After the jump, I’ve included Sarah’s version of Joan Osbourne’s “One Of Us” that she sang for the auditions. Also quite BEEEP. Keep reading »
