I just found out a few days ago that Shakira was pregnant. Then I just now found out that she had her son, Milan, 2 months ago! When were the blind auditions filmed? She sure didn't look pregnant at that time! Even though she just might not have been showing yet. Still, I found photos of her from January, and she definitely was showing!
Evidently she recently brought her new little cutie to a taping as the "5th judge."
Shakira Brings Baby Milan to The Voice
One of the side articles said his birth date was January 22nd. Wow, she lost her post baby fat quickly as they probably started taping the auditions in February. And, yes, she was very pregnant...there is a photo of that as well.
Then again, maybe they taped the auditions last summer - which could happen because the contestants change size and hair designs between the audition stage and the battle rounds. Anyway that is one cute future soccer player.
The only thing I have heard about Usher is the custody battle with his ex-wife. While they were battling, their son died in a jet-ski incident.
As for Bieber being a hot mess? He's a teen-ager. Usher can't control any of Bieber's actions, anymore than Bieber's parents. The kid is going to make mistakes and because he is in the public eye, it's a bigger deal than kids who are not in the public eye. The day he starts snorting coke/smoking meth and hiring hookers or robbing people at gunpoint, then I'll start to wonder where his mom went wrong. For a kid who has that much money, power and influence he isn't that bad. YET.
Ref. Usher background. You might check out a fairly recent Oprah interview she did with Usher and his mom. He had a huge battle with his ex-wife. His mother disliked the woman and refused to attend the wedding. That tells me that Usher is not too smart. To marry a woman your mom hates is a big mistake. Deal with it before marriage. Anyway, mom now says, I told you so. As it turns out the ex-wife was a piece of work. Usher wouldn't listen. His mom tried to warn him.
Anyway, it was his ex-wife's son, from a previous relationship that was killed in the water accident; not Usher's child. Usher tried to be kind, but the ex-wife threw many insults his way that he didn't really care. AND he offered to continue their court case for custody since the woman's child had just died, but the ex-wife made crazy accusations and said no way. She didn't sound too grieving. The case went forward and she lost big time and Usher got full custody.
Other than that, I don't know much about him.
If you believe his history as published, he tends to love until he gets his woman to commit -- and then he cheats. Once he supposedly cheats, he's immediately tied to "the other woman" and seems to make the transition with arrogance. Obviously that smooth smile and twinkle in the eye shortens people's memories and wins them over! :lovestruc
UGH...Ceelo was just on Ellen and said that he would be back for shooting season 5 in June :barf
