Adam Levine Defends Christina Aguilera Against Body ‘Bullies’ – On The Voice, Adam Levine and Christina Aguilera bicker like siblings – but off-screen, Levine is a big defender of his costar. “The fights that everyone thought we were having were fictional,” Levine told reporters at Friday’s press event for the show. “We never hated each other. We never had these secret battles that everyone thought we were having.” Levine, 33, even goes so far as to stand up for Aguilera, 31, who has been the object of criticism for her weight. He says the naysayers should “grow up.” – Read more at People

‘Glee’ stars rally for Obama at UNI – CEDAR FALLS, Iowa — Fans of the hit TV series “Glee” had two incentives to attend a Saturday Obama campaign rally at the University of Northern Iowa: Artie and Tina. Cast members Kevin McHale, who plays Artie Abrams, and Jenna Ushkowitz, who plays Tina Cohen-Chang, stopped by UNI’s Sabin Hall to speak in support of President Barack Obama’s re-election and pose for pictures with a roomful of fans. The actors held other events Saturday at the University of Iowa in Iowa City and in Des Moines. – Read more at WCF Courier

    I can’t understand why people would be carping about Christina’s weight with Cee Lo sitting there looking like a balloon in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

  • bridgette12

    It’s not fair, but Christina has been in the spotlight since she was a teen and people remember her through the years when she was a lot thinner. So people are going to make comments, not fair to her, but not unexpected.

    The concert for Kris in Annapolis has been cancelled. I just received an e-mail from RamsHead. Sad, but I do believe it was the right call. The e-mail said they are trying to reschedule for January. Great, right at the height of snow season:(

    Thanks, Linda – Disappointed, but looking forward to a rescheduling.  Wonder if he’ll hang over in D.C. at the Hamilton or try to make it out of the area before the big one hits – would think so. 

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/Y2H6IQWNMTSNTCTWDP7TDFEKPY Linda

    Does he have anymore shows on the coast this week? If not, I would head home, away from the storm. I sure hope they can reschedule because this is one of the closest venues to me. The only other time I got to see Kris was in State College PA, two and a half to three hours away. At least the Annapolis one was closer,  a little over two hours away.

    It looks like Lee’s concert in Massachusetts will happen tonight, but I’ll bet his one in NYC tomorrow is in jeopardy. And the charity event he is supposed to do with Kris on Tuesday. Darn Sandy, can’t she just become an Idol fan for a few days and let these guys do their gigs?

    David looks so refreshed and being himself after a triumphant short stint in Singapore. Wouldn’t expect anything less. 

  • lovetheusa1776

    Think the next are in November – LA, MN, AZ.
    There’s one in Philadelphia on January 11 – but that’s in the approximate time he’ll be in Annapolis.

  • Jaejae1

    Cee lo was never thin. Christina just looks like she let her self go. She is short and extra pounds show. And she still tries to Dress like she is 110lbs.

  • http://twitter.com/Sassycatz Sassycatz

    Hopefully this weather will hold off tonight here in DC. Going to the Kris show this evening and I don’t want to be literally blown away … just metaphorically will do. ;-)

  • onslow2

    Let her self go? Maybe she stopped starving herself, I see absolutely nothing wrong with that. 

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/Y2H6IQWNMTSNTCTWDP7TDFEKPY Linda

    That could work since Philly is about three to three and and a half hours from Annapolis. My son goes to college in Philly and it’s a four hour drive from here but about three and a half hours from DC so that seems like it would be a good time for a rescheduled show. Not a bad drive.

  • Ratna12

    I’ve read that Joes Pub cancelled tonight and tomorrow shows, lucky for Kris’ fans that he was scheduled last night. The show was so great and the fact that we can watched them on live stream and ustream (partial) was great.

    Sorry for the Annapolis show, but it is good that it is rescheduled.
    Better to be safe.

    94.7 Fresh FM is here for SOUND OFF with Kris Allen tonight. THE SHOW IS STILL GOING ON, FRANKENSTORM OR NO… fb.me/JTZdhFCM

    ETA: Kris show is still on.

    Glee stars supporting Obama…. As their big boss Ryan Murphy became a fundraiser for Obame.. do they have a choice not to campaign for Obama ?

    Lee just announced on twitter the cancellation of his NYC show at Highland.

    lolll, best weather report ever. what a dork :)

  • girlygirltoo

    Kris has a bunch of shows on the ERast Coast in early January — one in Boston, one in Philly, one in NYC — so that’s why they are likely trying to reschedule for the Annapolis show for that week

    #Kris tells the group he’s headed to Kenya in the day after Thanksgiving with World Vision for awareness raising activities

    #Christmas EP: Holly Jolly Christmas, O Holy Night, Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, white Christmas and..

    #New song “Paul Simon” Krale co-write

  • girlygirltoo

    the 5th song on the Xmas EP will be The Christmas Song.

    I’m guessing the World Vision trip to Kenya is the 2-week trip after Thanksgiving that Kris had talked about earlier. Good for him!

    Also, more news from today’s soundcheck: he plans to release new music early in 2013

  • mzhallcat

    lol at Kris’s dorky sense of humor. Gotta love him!

  • elliegrll

    Glee stars supporting Obama…. As their big boss Ryan Murphy became a fundraiser for Obame.. do they have a choice not to campaign for Obama ?

    I’m sure that they do.  Murphy is a television show producer, not a dictator.  He can’t force any of them to do anything that they don’t want to do.

  • teekee

    Yeah, Cook is looking good.

    Well, if Xtina and Adam REALLY hated each other I doubt he would have featured her on  Maroon 5′s “Moves Like Jagger.”  As for her looks, her only problem is questionable fashion choice.  One could say the same for Cee-lo.  Truth is, they are both just being fun.

    Looks like Chris Evert Charities put on a successful event this weekend, They tweeted that $600,000 was raised for children and families in South Florida, in spite of Sandy, Bride of Frankenstorm, causing a 2 hr delay in the set up on Saturday due to the rain high winds.

    David C’s matches today were: 
    MATCH 2 Rennae Stubbs & Tom Arnold vs Brad Gilbert & David Cook Umpire: Alan Thicke

    MATCH 4 Martina Navratilova & David Cook vs Brad Gilbert & Elisabeth Shue Umpire: Jon Lovitz

    Twitter is not very clear on the outcomes yet, it seems one of them ended in a tie – but they were clearly all having fun – >>@Eliza630: According to Tom Arnold, David [Cooks]‘s socks are too high! Lol, and John Lovitz tweeted >>”Martina’s reputation has been saved by David Cook”

    Videos are still uploading – but there are a few pics - 

    No more Hi-Lighter Green shirt today - http://twitpic.com/b88sb3

    and an  after the tournament “photobomb”@thedavidcook picture! Lol http://twitpic.com/b8bkjy 

    Also, this:
    >>@GraceC4David I wanna thk all the celebs this wkend esp @thedavidcook since he’s the ONLY one who actually stopped to sign for every single person even thou he had to catch a flight. Nobody else did that. Only him. Very nice to everyone. So tks David for being a nice person & caring about ur fans.

    Now, I hope DC gets to go home and sleep for a week! |

    Demi Lovato sang the National Anthem at the World Series game 4 today (another Fox plug, with Phillip Phillips, Matthew Morrison, and Zooey Deschanel singing the anthem in the first 3 games).

    Why singers try to do so much with that melody is beyond me. My team’s writers (the Giants) were not entertained, with someone equating it to a “strangulated hernia with feet”. Ugh. Demi’s better than that. 

    At least she didn’t forget the words and it wasn’t the worst anthem I’ve heard.

    Very pretty acoustic version, even if he forgot the second verse and needed the crowd’s help :)

    ETA: he ended tonight show’s with STD, and a lot of the crowd came up on stage to dance

    “SCIBIT–I think it’s Santa Claus is Back in Town, originally by Elvis”

    That’s what I took from the letters but didn’t connect it w/an Elvis song.  Believe he said there’s a video for it that he & the guys had a lot of fun with.  Sounds like Crazy James is Back in Town too! It will be interesting & fun if that’s it–

  • justmefornow

    Looking forward to Nov.13! Nice to have some new music almost a year later, even if it is only one song. It will be interesting to hear his version, how rockin’ his arrangement is of the song.
    I’ll probably lose power very soon, it’s getting VERY windy. I’m at ground zero for Sandy coming ashore :( !
    I hope we’re not out long, but who knows *crossing fingers*
