Eddie Murphy’s baby on the way… Forbes highest-paid women… Gigi Hadid and Joe Jonas break-up… CMAs highlights… and Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton are dating
Eddie Murphy must be over the moon that he’s making another baby. This time, it’s with his girlfriend, Paige Butcher. The baby is due in May. This is Paige’s first child. This will be Eddie’s NINTH.
Even though we have two months more to go, Forbes is out with their list of the highest-paid women in music for 2015. Katy Perry is the top earner with $135 million. Forbes says that throughout her Prismatic World Tour, Katy grossed more than $2 million per city during the 126 shows. Plus, she has contracts with Cover Girl, Coty and Claire’s, which put her way out in front of everyone else. Coming in second this year is Taylor Swift with $80 million. Thanks to Fleetwood Mac’s tour, Stevie Nicks and Christine McVie come in third on the list with $59.5 million, followed by Lady Gaga with $59 million and Beyonce with $54.5 million.
After 5 months of hot and heavy dating, Gigi Hadid and Joe Jonas have broken up. Sources say Gigi is the one who pulled the plug. Blame it on their busy schedules. Gigi’s modeling career is on fire and Joe has to go on tour to support his new music with DNCE. Sources say Gigi realized they needed to break up when Joe asked her to go on tour with him. She told him she couldn’t just drop everything like that, so it would be better for them to go their separate ways.
The CMAs were last night and it felt more like a concert with a few awards sprinkled in. Everybody’s talking about Justin Timberlake’s performance with Chris Stapleton. They literally stole the show with “Tennessee Whiskey” and “Drink You Away.” Besides having the best performance of the night, Chris won all three awards he was up for — Best New Artist, Best Male Vocalist and Album of the Year for “Traveller.” Female Vocalist of the Year went to Miranda Lambert, which makes her sixth win in a row in this category. Florida Georgia Line won Vocal Duo of the Year. Vocal Group of the Year went to Little Big Town and not our new best friends, The Band Perry. Single of the Year and Song of the Year was “Girl Crush” by Little Big Town. And Luke Bryan won Entertainer of the Year. He is grateful for that, but admitted he looks forward to winning Male Vocalist of the Year some day.

Her rep confirmed it! Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton are dating! She flew down to Nashville with Blake for the CMAs, but opted not to attend the show. Sources told TMZ it’s because she didn’t have anything to wear because it was so last minute, but I’m sure it had more to do with the fact that she was trying to be respectful of Blake’s ex Miranda Lambert. Sources say Gwen did plan to go to the after-parties with him, though.
