Willow Smith embraces the past… Gal Gadot welcomed 3rd Daughter… Ed Sheeran got lasik… Princess Diana statue unveiling… and Britney Spears speaks out against paparazziListen to “Showbiz -June 30th, 2021” on Spreaker.
Ten years ago, Willow Smith dropped her first song “Whip My Hair” when she was just nine years old. While it was a big hit, Willow spent the last 10 years hating that song. In a new interview, Willow said, “For so long, I wanted to condemn that time of my life and forget it…” But after listening to the song again recently, Willow said she discovered that “Whip My Hair” has more in common with her new music than she thought. “I realized that the content in my songs has always been centered around self-love and the universe and our humanity’s divine path, about expressing oneself and being unapologetic…I kind of just had a huge aha and was like, ‘Yo, don’t condemn this side of your life because it gave you a foundation and a platform and a fan base…Now, I would never take it back.”
Congratulations to Wonder Woman on another Wonder Baby! Gal Gadot and her husband Jaron Varsano have just welcomed their third daughter, Daniella. Big sisters are 9-year-old Alma and 4-year-old Maya. Gal posted the news on her Instagram, saying, “My sweet family I couldn’t be more grateful and happy (and tired) we are all so excited to welcome Daniella into our family.” Jaron also shared the baby news on his Instagram, saying, “And now we are [five] So happy and grateful. My dear wife is a lioness!! So thankful and humbled by your powers.”
Big Al and Ed Sheeran have one thing in common. They both wear vanity glasses. After 28 years of wearing prescription lenses, Ed recently had laser surgery. He said he still has all his old frames, but he replaced the prescription lenses with clear ones and wears them when he wants to look fashionable. Of his laser surgery, Ed says, ‘I’m so annoyed I didn’t get it done before, I’ve missed out on 10 years of awesomeness. I would highly recommend it for anyone.”
In honor of what would’ve been Princess Diana’s 60th birthday tomorrow, a statue will be unveiled in Kensington Palace Gardens. This will be the first time Princes William and Harry will appear publicly together since their grandfather’s funeral in April. Sources said while they kept things civil for the cameras, they were at each other’s throats in private. Will this be a repeat? Sources say the brothers will gather with immediate family following the unveiling ceremony, but their wives will NOT be there. Despite previous gossip, Meghan Markle is staying behind in California with her babies and, using Covid protocols as an excuse, Catherine is staying home, as well.
Britney Spears has a message for the paparazzi, which is basically, “Leave Britney alone!” On her Instagram, Britney posted, “So being here in Maui is pretty crazy now … the paps know where I am and it’s really not fun !!!! It’s pretty hard going anywhere cause these silly faces keep popping up to take my picture 📸🙄 … but not only do they take my picture … they distort my body and mess with the image and it’s embarrassing 😬😳🙃 !!!!! I know my body is not perfect but I definitely do NOT look like how they portray me. It’s rude and it’s mean so paps kindly (BLANK) YOU AND (BLANK) OFF 💋💋💋 !!!!” She added a slide show set to Lily Allen’s song “(BLANK) You.” It was “Dos and Donts” for paparazzi, fans or anyone in her space – “Don’t talk to me while I’m texting. It’s rude.” She added a photo of a woman drinking from a mug that said the same thing. Then she posted a video of her walking on the beach wearing a red bikini and a face mask, followed by, “This is my body!!! So stop messing with my pics and editing them to the point where it’s embarrassing!!!!” And finally, Britney reposted a video showing a crowd of people singing “Oops I Did It Again” during a recent Pride Month parade. She said, “This is what fans & paps should be doing instead!!!”
