Christina Aguilera is accepting herself… The Concert to Reunite the World… Celebrity baby news… #1989TaylorsVersion is currently trending… and Colton Underwood speaks his truthListen to “Showbiz – Apr 14, 2021” on Spreaker.
Christina Aguilera is on the cover of the May issue of “Health Magazine.” Christina’s weight has been a constant topic in gossip magazines. She told “Health,” “Entering this business, I hated being super skinny. Once I turned 21, I started filling out a little bit, and I was loving my new curves. I appreciated having a booty. I’ve always said that women are way more interesting to look at than men! I have a hard time looking at the early pictures of myself because I remember feeling so insecure.” Christina says she would never want to relive her 20s because “You’re so in your own head and finding your confidence. As you age, you stop comparing yourself to other people and start appreciating your own body and owning it.” Christina said that ultimately, beauty is about “accepting yourself.”
The CDC says that as of now, more than 66M Americans have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19. That’s roughly 20% of the U.S. population. A lot of people are hesitant to get the vaccine, so celebrities are hoping to use their super-hero powers of influence to change some minds. Two TV specials are in the works. This Sunday night, Ciara and Russell Wilson will host NBC’s “Roll Up Your Sleeves,” featuring appearances by President Biden, President Obama, Shaquille O’Neal, Eva Longoria, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Jennifer Lopez, Demi Lovato, and others. Event organizers say the point of the special is to “educate viewers, raise awareness and dispel concerns surrounding the COVID-19 vaccines.” Then on May 8, ABC, CBS, FOX and YouTube will air “Vax Live: The Concert to Reunite the World.” Selena Gomez will host, with JLo jumping over to appear on this special, too, along with J Balvin, the Foo Fighters and many more.
We are so excited to announce #VaxLive: The Concert to Reunite the World, hosted by @selenagomez! Together, we’ll call for equitable COVID-19 vaccine distribution for all and watch performances from the world’s biggest stars! Tune in Saturday, May 8: https://t.co/x2FOKjSy8G pic.twitter.com/RUqNMol7qC— Global Citizen (@GlblCtzn) April 13, 2021
Celebrity baby news — Former “Vanderpump Rules” stars Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright have welcomed their baby boy! Cruz Michael Cauchi was born on Monday, April 12, with a head FULL of hair! Jax posted on his Instagram, “I’ve never in my life thought it was going to be like this. It’s 10,000 times better. Dad mode just kicks in. I don’t think I have ever been as happy as I am right now, everything else in life seems so insignificant now. I am crying just writing this message…” And “Queer Eye” fashion expert Tan France announced that he and his husband Rob France are expecting a baby this summer, via surrogate. I wonder if Tan will try to do the French tuck with his kid’s diaper……
Swifties were picking up those Easter eggs Taylor Swift was dropping on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” last night. While promoting the release of her re-recorded “Fearless” album, fans believe she was letting them know the next album she’s re-recording is “1989.” Taylor mentioned “Shake It Off” — the first single off “1989.” She also brought up NYC several times, and “Welcome to New York” was another song off the “1989” album. She also brought up that the street address for Stephen’s old show “The Colbert Report” was 513 and that Stephen’s birthday is on May 13 — also 513 — which MUST mean she’s either dropping the album or making a huge announcement on May 13.
Former Bachelor Colton Underwood was on GMA today to announce that he is gay. He told Robin Roberts that he realized he was “different” at age 6. He said, “I’ve ran from myself for a long time. I’ve hated myself for a long time. I came to terms with that earlier this year and have been processing it, and the next step in all of this was sort of letting people know.” Colton said there were times when he wanted to die rather than admit he was gay. But then back in 2018 when Colton was cast on Becca Kufrin’s season of “The Bachelorette,” he thanked God for that because, to him, that meant he was straight. Colton went on to become the Bachelor and ended up with Cassie Randolph. He said it was especially confusing because he really did love Cassie. We know now that things ended really badly for them. Cassie even filed for a restraining order against him, which she later dropped. Colton also apologized to the women he hurt by appearing on “The Bachelor.” He said, “Do I regret being the Bachelor? Do I regret handling it the way that I did? I do. I do think I could’ve handled it better. I just wish I wouldn’t have dragged people into the mess of figuring out who I was….But I can sit here and say I’m sorry to all of those women, and I can also say thank you because without them and without ‘The Bachelor’ franchise I don’t know if this would’ve come out.”
JUST IN: Former “Bachelor” star @Colton Underwood speaks his truth and comes out to @robinroberts: “I’m gay. And I came to terms with that earlier this year and have been processing it… I’m the happiest and healthiest I’ve ever been in my life.” https://t.co/PoYJUAPBpA pic.twitter.com/isP7SptUu7— Good Morning America (@GMA) April 14, 2021
