AMP Music Minute: Adele’s Pregnant, Enrique + J. Lo Talk Pre-Show & Usher Gets Stalked
Adele Announces Pregnancy with First Child-
23-year-old singer, Adele has successfully taken over the music world with her sophomore album, 21. Sweeping the Grammy’s and breaking records almost daily for album sales. But that may all seem like small potatoes when the UK singer takes on her biggest challenge yet: motherhood.
Days ago, Adele announced that she and boyfriend Simon Konecki are expecting their first child together. She shared the good news on her website, writing, “I’m delighted to announce that Simon and I are expecting our first child together. I wanted you to hear the news direct from me, obviously we’re over the moon and very excited but please respect our privacy at this precious time.”
Simon has some practice as being a dad, considering he already has a 5-year-old daughter. While there is still no talk of a wedding or anything, sources close to the source have noted that the couple are looking to get more serious. “She wants to get married this year,” a source said. “She’s been longing to settle down with a man who will treat her well. She feels Simon is the one — and doesn’t see the point in waiting.”
We couldn’t be happier for Adele and Simon. Mostly we are jealous of all the amazing lullaby’s that baby is going to get to hear from its mother. Blue Ivy is about to have a UK bestie.
We called it!
Enrique Explains Pre-Show Regimen-
Jennifer Lopez and Enrique Iglesias are co-headlining a world tour as we write this. Later this month, the two embark on the United States where they have been talking about remixing their duet for their North American audiences. But before they get on stage, either alone or together, they both have a distinct set of procedures they like to perform before they go on stage and well…perform!
While J. Lo likes to take her time and stretch, Enrique reaches for a bottle to help him loosen up. “I have to stretch a lot and warm-up because I have to dance,” Lopez explained. “I like getting real [warmed up]. But I don’t have any weird [pre-show rituals]. I like to get pumped and super [warmed up] before I go out there.”
As for Enrique, “I don’t do anything but sit [alone] in my dressing room and drink rum,” joked Iglesias. “Nah, but I do have a sip of rum to get rid of the nerves before I go out on stage.”
The duo are still figuring out who will open and close the show as well as new ideas for their duets. “We are still talking about that — I think that Enrique should close,” Jenn asserted. “I’ll go first so I can be home in time to put the babies to bed.” Iglesias added, “We’ll figure it out as the tour goes along.”
Babies are important, after all.
Usher Obtains Restraining Order for Intense Fan-
Last night Usher ripped the BET Awards stage, performing his hit song “Climax” to an enthralled audience. And the thing is, Usher is used to that. He is comfortable with fans showing their appreciation in a multitude of ways. But when it goes to far, he sometimes has to get help from law authorities to keep them in check. The latest instance of this sort of drama swirls around a woman who claims to be Usher’s wife.
Yeah, weird, we know.
Recently Usher placed a restraining order against 26-year-old Darshelle Jones-Rakestraw. The details of the case emerged following the release of court documents obtained by TMZ. Jones- Rakestraw reportedly showed up to Usher’s house in Georgia, uninvited, and pounded on the door demanding to be let in. Sources say that they told her to leave and not to come back.
Unfortunately, she did not adhere to their warning and returned the next day.When the cops arrived for the second day in a row, Darshelle tried to convince the authorities that she was Usher’s wife.
Funny thing, though, Usher isn’t married anymore. He filed formal charges immediately thereafter.
In response, Darshelle posted a video to YouTube explaining her side of the situation. You can check it out here.
Sounds like #famouspeopleproblems.
