Carrie Underwood Celebrates 5 Years as Grand Ole Opry Member

Carrie Underwood has already been a member of the Grand Ole Opry for five years. At just 30 years old, the Grammy-winning country singer celebrated her anniversary on Friday, June 7, by closing out the first of two performances on the infamous Opry stage with a special segment. After she sang, a special video presentation highlighted the ‘Good Girl’ star’s five years as an Opry member. Then, Underwood had the opportunity to say a few words.

“It’s so hard to believe it’s been five years, but what an amazing five years it has been,” she said (quote via CMIL). “Just watching that video, I was getting a little teary-eyed, thinking about how I felt when all of that was happening. And I still feel that blessed and that honored to be on this stage.”

Congrats to Underwood for five great years as a Grand Ole Opry Member. Here’s to many more!

Celine Dion at Jamaica Jazz Festival

Canadian singer Celine Dion shows off her gorgeous gams in a slit dress while performing at the Jamaica Jazz & Blues Festival on Friday (January 27) at Greenfield Stadium in Trelawny, Jamaica.

The 43-year-old singer reportedly flew in via private jet on her Gulfstream G450 from her West Palm Beach, Fla., home.

Celine recently talked to ET about balancing her singing schedule with mommy duty.

“[It’s] hard because I sing at night and I want to be with my babies [1-year-olds Eddy and Nelson] during the day and I have twins and they are not sleeping good,” she shared.

“They are in my room and they wake up five-six times a night. Two babies, so that mean 10 to 12 times a night. I can’t let them cry … so I wake up, and [say], ‘It’s okay.’ [They] want to be with mommy and mommy wants to be with them, and then the next day, sometimes it’s hard, for me too,” Celine added.

Heidi Klum and Seal confirmed divorce

Heidi Klum and Seal have confirmed that they’re separating, after rumours of unrest surfaced on US gossip websites late last week.

“While we have enjoyed seven very loving, loyal and happy years of marriage, after much soul-searching we have decided to separate. We have had the deepest respect for one another throughout our relationship and continue to love each other very much, but we have grown apart,” Heidi, 38, and Seal, 48, wrote in a joint statement. “This is an amicable process and protecting the well-being of our children remains our top priority, especially during this time of transition. We thank our family, friends, and fans for their kind words of support. And for our children’s sake, we appreciate you respecting our privacy.”

The couple have four children: Leni, 7, Henry, 6, Johan, 5, and Lou, 2.

Taylor Swift gets praised from Flo Rida

Taylor Swift has shared the stage with some of the biggest (and most surprising) artists during her Speak Now Tour. Everyone from Nicki Minaj and Selena Gomez to Bruce Springsteen has graced the stage with the pop darling in 2011.

During a Miami tour stop last month, the singer brought Flo Rida onstage to perform his very blush-inducing track “Right Round.” And if you were surprised to hear about the collaboration, Flo told MTV News at Los Angeles’ Jingle Ball over the weekend that he was just as shocked.

“I was in Australia. I got home, and I was actually staying in my condo for the day,” he explained. “And I looked down, ’cause my condo, it’s right across the street from the arena, and I was like, ‘I wonder who’s performing?’ So I went down there, spur-of-the-moment, and they told me it was Taylor.”

Initially, Flo Rida just wanted a chance to catch the show, but when he spoke to her people, it turned into a whole different opportunity. “I spoke with them, and they asked me to perform,” he said. “And she was very nice and very humble. I had an amazing time. Her fans are over-the-top. It was crazy. Much love to Taylor Swift.”

Swift wrapped up her tour in New York last month. During her Atlanta stop over the summer, she brought another rapper onstage with her: T.I. “I was pleasantly surprised and confused,” T.I. told MTV News of receiving the phone call from Swift. “I was confused because I know it’s a phenomenal opportunity, but being T.I. — the Rubberband Man — and Taylor Swift being America’s Sweetheart, I had just gotten out of prison, like, two days [earlier], and all of a sudden my phone rings.”

While the hip-hop appearances on her tour might seem surprising, Swift assured us in October that she really loves the genre. “I’m a huge hip-hop fan, and it’s been so amazing to have so many incredible artists come out and to get to sing the hooks on their songs that I’ve been blasting in my car for the last couple years,” she said. “It’s been awesome. I couldn’t have asked for more amazing special guests on this tour.”

Taylor Swift Interview at YouTube

American country pop singer-songwriter Taylor Swift leaves a restaurant after having lunch with a friend on Sunday in West Hollywood, California. The 21-year-old celeb recently stopped by Google’s Mountain View, for an impromptu Q&A session with YouTube and Google staffers.

Taylor’s visit was part of a program called YouTube Presents, which brings fans live performances and interviews with their favorite artists.

When asked how she chooses which covers she’ll perform at a concert, Taylor shared, “I go online and just kind of Google what people – what famous musicians are from a certain area, and I just pick my favorites.”

“I’ve loved so many different kinds of music, and I’ve never really been genre-specific as far as what I listen to. It’s just me and my instrument. It’s a spontaneous part of the show,” she added.


Ricky Martin in Attitude Magazine cover

Puerto Rican pop singer Ricky Martin strikes a pose on the January 2011 cover of UK’s Attitude magazine. The 38-year-old Puerto Rican and father of two, Matteo and Valentino, shared what he looks for in a guy. “I love witty,” he told the mag. “I love mental strength. Just being secure. With all the stuff I come with, you have to be someone who is sure of himself. That turns me on. Somebody who is very sure of themselves without being arrogant, smart, witty, has a career. Somebody who is very open-minded about things. That’s what I love. Adventurous is the word.”

“I used to fall in love quickly,” Ricky admitted. “When you are young you are open to taking risks and not afraid of anything. Now my priorities are different. I have children and they are the most important thing in my life. OK, I’m in a relationship and I know how lucky I am.”

Attitude is the best selling gay magazine in UK and is also distributed worldwide and available worldwide as a download for ipad and iphone. The first issue appeared in May 1994. As of 2010, it is owned by Trojan Publishing.
