Money and babies and boyfriends, oh my! It looks like every day this week we’re hearing new news about Shakira, which is a little odd considering we’ve heard nearly nothing about her in the past two years.
But let’s start with the money news, shall we?
The Hollywood Reporter is saying that Shakira is going to be ranking a whopping $12 million pay check for her time on season 4 of the voice, where she’ll be one of two new judges alongside Usher who are replacing Cee Lo Green and Christina Aguilera. Pretty surprising for a first-time not-that-famous judge! Considering the iconic Mariah Carey is only getting $6 million more than that for her time at Idol and Usher is reportedly Usher has signed his contract for only $7 million, we’re a little shocked that The Voice is dishing out so much for the dancer.
Now for the other news: Shakira and her hot. as. hell. boyfriend are expecting their first child together! She was supposed to perform at the iHeartMusic festival in Las Vegas this weekend, but has announced last minute that she’s canceling all of her performances and promotional appearances to concentrate on the health of her baby.
Things are looking up for you, girl! Enjoy it while it lasts.
