Ellen DeGeneres’ new little mini hosts Sophia Grace and Rosie are likely the envy of most little girls across the country. The YouTube sensations won DeGeneres’ heart, and have since served as her correspondents for the American Music Awards and the Grammys. Now, the tutu-clad duo are hosting their own segment called ‘Tea Time,’ which debuts today (Feb.29) on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show.’ And their first guest happens to be none other than Taylor Swift.
Blake Shelton became a country star on his music alone, but since he first appeared on NBC’s ‘The Voice‘ last season, the 6-foot-5 man’s man with a soft side has truly become a favored celebrity. In a recent interview, Shelton talked about his role on the hit show, his marriage to no-nonsense country artist Miranda Lambert and why he didn’t know how to get to his own home when he was living in L.A.
Sugarland‘s Jennifer Nettles used a recent break from her tour for a truly admirable cause. She joined forces with the Heart Truth, an organization that raises awareness about the little known fact that heart disease is actually the leading cause of death among women. Strutting her stuff for the organization on the red c
Taylor Swift just came out with a behind-the-scenes video from her music video shoot from ‘Safe & Sound,’ the lead single on the upcoming ‘The Hunger Games’ soundtrack. The haunting mood of the song, which also features The Civil Wars, translates so perfectly to the almost colorless video. In the below clip, Swift catches the vision as soon as she steps out into the cold of the barren winter woods.
Blake Shelton fans will be excited to learn that on Season 3 of NBC’s ‘The Voice,’ when one of those iconic red chairs swivels around, their favorite country papa bear will still be sitting in it. The Wrap is reporting that Shelton has signed on for another season of the show, along with all three of the other celebrity coaches — Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green and Adam Levine.
After Chris Brown was given the stage for not one but two Grammy performances this year, Miranda Lambert has had no problem stepping up to let her fans know how she feels about the hip-hop artist and his past as an abuser. Not only did she tweet several times with her feelings on the matter, but Lambert finally took her anger to the stage at a show this week, as seen in the below video Taste of Country received from a fan.
Jason Aldean has taken the country music world by storm in the past few years, shooting out of the ranks of wannabe country stars and into sold-out arena tours. The ‘My Kinda Party’ singer may perform to 20,000 people on any given night, and his songs have been climbing the charts like kids on a playground. Even so, the laid-back country hitmaker says he’s not about to go around giving other hopefuls advice — especially not on a reality TV show.
Lionel Richie is a legend, to say the least, and now he’s taking a rather legendary step, going back to his roots and releasing a full album of country duets with some of the most famous country stars in the business. The album, named after Richie’s hometown of ‘Tuskegee,’ is set to drop March 27, and the first single from the record, a Richie and Shania Twain duet of the smash hit ‘Endless Love,’ released Feb. 7.
What can we say? When the DIY-laced, fashion-forward, recipe-stocked pin craze of Pinterest began, we never thought we’d be reporting that male country music stars would be getting in on the action. But Pinterest has taken on a new role of late, serving as just another social media outlet where artists can do what has become so vital these days: connect with their fans. Perhaps this is why New-Zealand born Aussie Keith Urban just added his name to the list of pinners you can follow with his new Pinterest page.
It’s certainly no secret that Taylor Swift has a whole generation of young followers. With her upcoming Dr. Seuss film ‘The Lorax‘ set to hit theaters March 2, Swift is poised to have an even bigger influence on the lives of youngsters across the country. In this recently released campaign video for the National Education Association, Swift joins fellow ‘Lorax’ cast members Betty White, Danny DeVito, Ed Helms (from ‘The Office’) and Zac Efron to read a Seuss-like poem promoting the NEA’s Read Across America Day.
Maybe it really is true that you just can’t do it all. At least that’s what ‘Red Solo Cup’ singer Toby Keith seems to be discovering. After making appearances in the movies ‘Beer for My Horses’ and ‘Broken Bridges,’ Keith says he’s throwing in the acting towel for good — but not because he didn’t enjoy it.
In many ways, Taylor Swift seems to have come into her own in the past two years. With the release of ‘Speak Now,’ she brought her own writing prowess and her own raw emotions to the table. Now, with a mature new look and riding the coattails of a very classy Grammy performance (and with two new Grammys to her name), the ‘Mean’ singer has officially established once and for all that she’s on the scene to stay. And this leaves fans wondering what approach she’ll take with her next record.
