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 »
Season three of our fave reality TV show/Blake Shelton awful tattoo showcase, “The Voice,” is almost over, and we are gonna be so sad to see it go. Especially because favorite mentor and extensions enthusiast Christina Aguilera is reportedly not returning next season so that she has the time to “fulfill my creative soul.” Maybe she’s got a bunch of wigs to comb? Or is planning an all out surprise warbling attack at a neighborhood mall? Whatever the case, next season will see Xtina replaced by Shakira, and tiny man nugget Cee Lo traded in for Usher. Let’s commemorate all the good times we’ve had with Chrissy A. through the power of 16 gifs, one for every tear we’ll cry. Keep reading »
Have you been watching “The Voice”? The vocal talent show features judges Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Blake Shelton and Adam Levine coaching singers in a vocal competition. The twist? The judges choose the people on their teams based on voice alone. The idea is that the blind auditions will help select singers who might otherwise be deemed conventionally attractive or saleable — with the hopes of finding an unexpected diamond in the rough.
It’s a great idea, yes. And in its first two seasons, the show has stuck to its mission fairly explicitly. But in season three? Ugh. There is a contestant that’s destroyed the core idea of “The Voice” — and managed to reinforce tired beliefs about conventionally attractive people.
Meet Dez Duron. He’s a former Yale football player and current Voice favorite. He’s also my least favorite contestant. Because he’s really, really attractive. Keep reading »
“Now everyone is a critic. I don’t read blogs. It’s just God-knows-who in Buttfuck wherever writing hate shit. You can’t take it seriously. I’m sure you’ve all been hated on at some point by buttfuck people. It’s real talk today.”
– Christina Aguilera tells The Hollywood Reporter what she really thinks of bloggers. I was just starting to like Christina again and then she called me a buttfucker. Boo! Well, I refuse to write hate shit in return. I would like to take this opportunity to praise Xtina for the feminist stance she recently took on “The Voice” when she stole Alessandra Guercio because “no woman should feel less than confident.” I thought that was awesome, Xtina. Keep it up. Sincerely, a buttfuck person from God-knows-who in Buttfuck. [DListed]
Perhaps you’ve heard of this little band of British moppets called The Wanted? They’re sort of like One Direction (or so I’ve been told), but less squeaky clean. And apparently, one way they’ve attempted to mold their bad boy image is by slagging off Christina Aguilera after meeting her at a taping of “The Voice.” This past April, the lads were doing an interview with Now FM and referred to her as a bitch. Member Tom Parker (he’s the one whose gaping maw is open so wide you can see his tonsils in the pic above) said, “She might not be a bitch in real life, but to us, she was a total bitch. She just sat there and didn’t speak to us. Wouldn’t even look at us.” I’d argue that Xtina shouldn’t have to look at anybody she doesn’t want to — especially if they happen to be foul-mouthed British teens. And also? Does a woman have to pay attention to a dude just because he wants her to? (#rhetoricalquestion). Keep reading »
On Monday night’s episode of vocal competition show “The Voice,” two of Cee Lo’s team members wowed with a powerhouse rendition of Mariah Carey’s “Vision of Love.” Trevin Hunte and Amanda Brown received a standing ovation from the audience and the judges — Adam Levine actually stood on his chair.
So who actually won?
