Christina Aguilera has thrown major shade at The Voice, despite appearing as a coach on the show for six seasons. Saying, “You realize it’s not about music. It’s about making good TV moments and massaging a story,” she tells Billboard. “I didn’t get into this business to be a television show host and to be given all these [rules]. Especially as a female: You can’t wear this, can’t say that. I would find myself on that show desperately trying to express myself through clothing or makeup or hair. It was my only kind of outlet.” Aguilera goes on to call the show an “energy sucker” and says she only stayed on it for the sake of her 10-year-old son and 3-year-old daughter. “Touring is so frightening to me, because I am a mom first,” she admits. “It’s part of why I stayed in the position I was [at The Voice]. It’s easy to get comfortable and cushy in the same place and not have to worry about uprooting your kids.
Ryan Reynolds has opened up about his lifelong battle with anxiety. “I have anxiety, I’ve always had anxiety. Both in the lighthearted ‘I’m anxious about this’ kind of thing, and I’ve been to the depths of the darker end of the spectrum, which is not fun.” He went on to say that his humor is a self-defense mechanism that he’s used since he was a kid.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are involving the public in their upcoming nuptials by inviting 1,200 people–including inner-city youth workers and community leaders–to the grounds of Windsor Castle. But, some aren’t happy about the fact they won’t be providing food. Representatives for the royal family, which has an estimated net worth of more than $500 million, have sent letters to the guests encouraging them “to bring a picnic lunch as it will not be possible to buy food and drink on site.” Guests are baffled and amused that they have to bring their own food to an event hosted by such wealthy people.
