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 and Rihanna Release Duet “Can’t Remember To Forget You”!

Shakira and Rihanna have released their brand new collaboration. Yeah in case you didn’t know they were going to work together, SURPRISE!

The duo teamed up for the new single “Can’t Remember To Forget You” and this track is the FIRST song coming off of Shakira’s upcoming album.

Apparently the ladies have recorded a music video for the song and we’ll get to see it in the coming weeks…that is, IF someone doesn’t leak it before they want it to.

About her collaboration with Rihanna, Shakira told Glamour magazine, “[W]orking with her was utopia. She’s the sexiest woman on the planet. And at the end of the day, we’re both just basically Caribbean girls. The chemistry was so good and so real. She taught me dance moves. She was a sweet teacher.”

For all you hardcore fans, “Can’t Remember To Forget You” is available for you all to download in the US and UK right now. GO!!!!

Shakira’s new album is expected to be released later this year so you’ll have to wait a hot minute for that.

What do you think of Rihanna and Shakira teaming up together finally?

Shakira Says She Can Offer Her Man Nothing Beyond Her Womanhood

ELLE July '13 cover Shakira

Introducing to you ELLE’s July cover girl- Shakira! The Colombian songstress and judge of NBC’s The Voice opens up to the magazine about being a new mom, her relationship with Spanish soccer star Gerard Pique, and what’s next for her music. Check out the highlights from the interview below.

On her co-workers, the male coaches on The Voice:

“In general, I think I’ve treated the boys with mercy.”

On her relationship with Spanish soccer star Gerard Pique:

“He has his own world and that’s actually one of the healthiest things about the relationship. I know that he’s the one person who is with me not because of any interest other than the love than unites us. There’s nothing I can offer him beyond my womanhood – does that word exist in English?”

Her experience as a new mother:

“I’m still trying to figure it out. And I have a feeling I will try to do the same for the rest of my life. Some people put it like it’s very idyllic, some people put it like it’s a torturing experience, but it’s not quite one thing or the other. It’s like life – it comes with everything.”

On her music and what’s next:

“I have no idea of where I want to go musically, but I’m fine that way. I don’t need to remain faithful to any concept, you know.”

For more Shakira and Elle magazine go here.

The issue hits newsstands nationwide on June 25th.

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!

Maroon 5 vs. Gangam Style on Billboard

I have no shame in my fingers when I write that I am completely in love with this new sensation on the charts now. This ‘Gangnam Style’ song is the sh*t and I dare you all to try and escape it!  This week, the song by Korean rapper PSY is #2 on the Billboard charts and it is all but a foregone conclusion that it will take down Maroon 5 from the top slot, where they presently stand with the song ‘One More Night’. Now, I speak English and understand everything culturally, but for the life of me, I have no idea what is going on in that damn video! Can someone help me out?!

Any-Adam-Levine-is-hot-so-who-bothers-to-pay-attention-to-plot-points?-way, PSY’s international hit is steamrolling its way through America and is about to be the newest dance craze since The Macarena. So while I am already forecasting the winners for next week, let me take a moment to tell you of someone who will not be on that podium.


Her new single and video, where she pulls out all the titty balls stops, is not completely dead in the water, but… it is meandering and probably will not be cracking the top 10 next week, if ever. Maybe Christina should have re-thought leaving The Voice to go on a tour promote an album that may not even sell?

Someone might have to pry Shakira out of that chair six months from now.

Usher and Shakira Joining The Voice Next Season









The coaches for hit NBC show The Voice are changing up for Season 4! Usher and Shakira will take the place of present coaches Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo GreenNBC announcedAdam Levine and Blake Shelton are staying on, at least through the next season.

Christina and Cee Lo wanted to take a break to work on other projects. Christina will be touring to promote her new album, Lotus, and Cee Lo has plans for new music and a scripted comedy about his life. However, both promise that they will be back!  “By pursuing my first passion of music during the break, I am also able to come back and offer even more to my team on The Voice in the future,” Christina said in a statement.

“I will return for season five and will be watching season four,” Cee Lo was quoted as saying.

“We are thrilled to welcome Usher and Shakira to The Voice,” Robert Greenblatt, the chairman of NBC Entertainment, said in statement. “Doing two back-to-back cycles of this show requires a tremendous amount of time and we are happy to accommodate the commitments made by Christina and Cee Lo.”

That will be an interesting change to the line up!
