I never watch ‘The Voice’. EVER. I tried last season, and it’s more cheese than I can handle. Last night – after watching an episode of ‘Chopped’ (LOVE IT), I turned on ‘The Voice’ for a second, just for s**t’s and giggles. It was right at that moment that Christina Aguilera stepped out in this unfortunate ensemble and sang the song ‘Fighter’.
Christina has been fighting the bulge lately – and in all honesty – she has lost some weight. Not enough weight, however, to pull off this corset and fishnets. Why didn’t she just wear a dress – or something that was a little more flattering!? I’ll give her this – she’s got some cajones!
Along with Aguilera, Blake Shelton also hit the stage and Adam Levine’s band Maroon 5 debuted a new song with Wiz Khalifa, fresh from his performance with Snoop Dogg and Dr Dre at Coachella.
After watching Christina sing, I switched over and watched ‘Shahs of Sunset’, which I’m afraid to admit I like. Darn that Ryan Seacrest!
Kelly Osbourne looks amazing in the May issue of Glamour Magazine.
In the interview, she opens up about how to have body confidence.
The 27-year-old Fashion Police star looks cute in her fuchsia-colored Miu Miu dress, Solange Azagury-Patridge earrings and Brian Atwood peep-toed pumps.
Kelly accepts who she is:
“I’m the most uncool person on Earth, and I love myself. I don’t want to be cool! I feel good in my own skin because I’ve accepted the fact that I’m me.
“That’s what’s so great about being alive and being on this planet: Everybody’s different.”
Kelly says women need to accept who they are, without trying to be what society considers “perfect”:
“Women are so unforgiving of themselves. We don’t recognise our own beauty because we’re too busy comparing ourselves to other people. No we are not all Gisele Bundchen; we’re not all Beyoncé. But I can tell you even the most beautiful girls in the world have felt insecure. And just seeing the pressure my friends Kim Kardashian and Kate Moss are under makes me never want to even be the prettiest woman in the room. There is no such thing as perfection.”
On her feud with Christina Aguilera, after the singer called Kelly “fat”:
Sometimes it’s other people’s voices you have to shut out. That’s what happened with me and Christina Aguilera, which people don’t understand.
She called me fat for years. One night on Fashion Police I said, F*** you. Now you’re fat too.’ I didn’t say I wasn’t fat. I said, ‘Now you know how it feels’” And I’m sorry, but I stand by that.”
Even though she wouldn’t consider herself ‘skinny’ she’s still happy:
“Even now I don’t consider myself skinny. But I have put a lot of hard work into my body over the years, and in the process, I’ve really learned to love myself.”
Adam Levine stopped by the Howard Stern show this week, and if you know anything about Howard, he got Adam to open up about things he might not otherwise talk about. For one, Howard asked Adam why Christina Aguilera has gotten “so fat” and called her “plus size”. I was so happy to see Adam’s reaction, he defended Christina – and looked uncomfortable with the questions.
“This is a sensitive subject for women, but why do you think she’s gotten so heavy?” Stern asked Levine. “Is she upset? … She used to be so f***ing hot … And her clothes are too tight, right?”
Levine, who was obviously uncomfortable, carefully chose his response.
“Her clothes are tight. She likes to wear tight clothes,” Levine said. “She clearly likes to talk about being comfortable with being a woman and snapping her fingers and doing the whole thing.”
Howard pushed even further saying, “Yeah, but when you’re a plus-size woman, you can’t wear the tight clothes anymore.”
“I wouldn’t go that far, actually,” Levine said.
When asked what size Aguilera is, the “Voice” coach wisely responded, “I’m keeping my f***ing mouth shut.” (Watch the video below)
Christina Aguilera isn’t the only thing Howard got Adam to talk about. He also opened up about his birth control method of choice. The pull-out method.
Leave it to Howard Stern to get the intimate details of his guests’ sex lives on The Howard Stern Show. This week, Howard asked Maroon 5′s frontman and judge of The Voice, Adam Levine, to share his birth-control method with his Victoria’s Secret girlfriend Anne Vyalitsyna. And yes, he actually shared it.
Adam has been proudly dating Anne, 25, for two years now.
“This is the longest, most functional relationship I’ve ever been in,” he told Howard on his show. “I don’t want to screw it up.”
Anna reportedly came out of the green room to share her version of how she met Adam. The two met when Maroon 5 was hired to play at a party for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition.
“He thought I was a stuck-up b**** and I kind of thought he was a d***bag musician,” she explained.
But after getting drinks, they realized they got along.
Now, Adam and Anne are as close as a couple can get. At least, we hope so since they’re not exactly being very safe with their birth control.
In a TMI conversation, Adam revealed he uses “a fool-proof birth-control system,” the pull-out method.
“I didn’t start a band to get girls,” Adam said with a laugh. “I stayed in the band to get girls.”.
Pull-out!? I know it works for some people, but when you’re high profile like Adam is, I would think he’d want to be more careful. Seems like playing Russian Roulette to me!
In photos of Christina Aguilera performing “At Last’ at Etta James’ funeral, you can see ‘something’ running down her bare legs. See the photo here. Us Weekly got the lowdown on just what was going with all that “leaking”.
A source tells them:
She sang her heart out. It was a memorial service for her idol and she was nervous,” an insider explains to Us of the performance. (Aguilera, 31, has been covering “At Last” for years and called James “a true gift to music and a woman of great spirit and courage” on her website after James’ death.”
“It was her proudest moment,” the source explains. “The sweat caused her spray tan to streak.”
Take a look at the photo and see if you agree that it’s sweat making her fake tan run. How embarrassing no matter WHAT it is. Also, doesn’t anyone wear pantyhose anymore?
According to US Weekly, all four coaches from The Voice are returning for season 2!
Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine, Cee-Lo Green and Blake Shelton — have signed on for season two of the NBC smash, a source confirms exclusively to Us Weekly.
Aguilera “is very excited” for the next season, an insider close to the singer, 30, tells Us. “It has been an amazing experience for her!” A rep for Green told Us the “Forget You” singer is indeed returning.
(Reps for Levine and Shelton had no comment.)
On Wednesday’s season one finale of the blockbuster singing competition, Javier Colon was crowned the winner after ten weeks of competition. Mentored by Adam Levine, the father of two and Stratford, Conn. native beat out fellow finalist Dia Frampton by just two percent of the vote to win $100,000 and a recording contract.
Season two of The Voice gets underway in early 2012.
You know, I reeeeeaallly gave this show a try. I just thought it was incredibly boring! I liked the audition process (which I usually do on any show) but once the eliminations started happening – the show just got so boring! I didn’t care about any of the contestants, and I didn’t even think they were all that talented!
Did you stick with it? What did you think?
