Celebrity Gossip Heard All Over The Web

CELEB SPOTTING: Shakira Hangs Out with Boyfriend Gerard Pique and Son Milan

What a beautiful family! Pop star Shakira and her soccer star boyfriend Gerard Pique shared a great family pic with their 18-month-old son Milan as they hung out in the country on a ranch!

“Countryside!”  Gerard, 27, captioned the photo on Instagram. The little family looked happy smiling as Gerard held Milan and wrapped his arm around Shakira. Milan himself was rocking a nice plaid shirt and jeans (definitely ranch appropriate!). Gerard shared another photo of the family riding on a funicular (fancy word for a tram-like vehicle) throughout an unknown city.


Though they sure are happy with Milan, Shakira herself told Latina magazine in April, that she definitely wants more kids…a LOT of them! “I would love to have eight or nine kids with Gerard,” she said. “My own futbol team.” Geez! All power to her.

Is Shakira Finally Posing for Playboy?

Rumor has it that Shakira has finally decided to pose for Playboy. No, there’s no official confirmation and yes, she’s turned the magazine down (allegedly) several times in the past. One such turndown is noted in the following tweet from 2012:

So, why the change of heart? Well, for starters, reports claim the singer will not be completely naked. Instead, she will be wearing lingerie. Sexy lingerie, of course.

Obviously, this is not the Playboy norm per se, but there is some speculation that boyfriend Gerard Piqué has a lot to do with the cover up. I’m a little skeptical of his role, given her past turn downs. I see it more as a compromise- between Shakira and Playboy, not so much the boy. Now it’s really just like any other magazine shoot, but it’s Playboy. So cue the OMGz!

But, if you want to go the Gerard Piqué disapproves route, Shakira told Ryan Seacrest,“I have to keep in mind that he’s very jealous and territorial, and he likes things to always be under control.” 

So there’s that. And there’s the whole she had to have his approval to film the hot scenes with Rihanna in their “Can’t Remember to Forget You” video. A video that drew a lot of criticism for its apparent hotness. And yes, the whole “have his approval” part irritates me.

Still the speculation that Shakira might be in Playboy, lingerie or not, is apparently a big deal to some, regardless of why and how, and on who’s approval.  What do you think? Big deal or no?

I say no, but maybe I’m just missing something…

Shakira Says Media Misinterpreted Her “Territorial” Statement About Her Husband


Shakira is now further explaining what she said about her boyfriend Gerard Pique to the media. About a month ago, Billboard magazine posted an interview with Shakira in which she called her man “very territorial. Since he no longer lets me do videos with men, well, I have to do them with women.”

However now that everyone has been wondering why Shakira would be with a man who many deemed controlling and jealous, the Voice judge is now having to clarify her statement. Apparently she was just being funny.

She said, “I was being humorous and now I see that some press took it very literally! The reality is that we have a beautiful relationship of mutual trust, and jealousy has never been an issue on either side.”

She went on to say, “I’ll be more careful when attempting to use my sense of humor, as clearly it can be easily misinterpreted!”

Interesting sense of humor you have there Shakira! I don’t get it, but whatever!

Shakira Delivers a Baby Boy










Shakira has delivered a bouncing baby boy, her first child with her man Gerard Piqué, central defender for FC Barcelona. The news was announced just last night on the singer’s official website!

The couple said in a statement:

“We are happy to announce the birth of Milan Piqué Mebarak, son of Shakira Mebarak and Gerard Piqué, born Jan. 22nd at 9:36 p.m. in Barcelona, Spain. The name Milan (pronounced MEE-lahn), means dear, loving and gracious in Slavic; in Ancient Roman, eager and laborious; and in Sanskrit, unification. Just like his father, baby Milan became a member of FC Barcelona at birth.”

Milan weighed  6 lbs., 6 oz., and the hospital says that both mother and child are in excellent health. Earlier yesterday, Shakira reached out to her fans on Twitter, asking for their well wishes. “I’d like to ask you all to accompany me in your prayers on this very important day of my life,” Shakira tweeted.

Congrats to the couple and their families! Hope to see pictures of the baby soon. With parents as gorgeous as his, he’s bound to be absolutely beautiful!
