Shakira lands the cover of Elle Magazine!

Introducing ELLE’s July cover girl- Shakira! The Colombian songstress and judge of NBC’s The Voice opens up to the magazine about being a new mom, her relationship with Spanish soccer star Gerard Pique, and what’s next for her music.

On her co-workers, the male coaches on The  Voice:

“In general, I think I’ve treated the boys with mercy.”

On her relationship with Spanish soccer star Gerard Pique:

“He has his own world and that’s actually one of the healthiest things about the relationship.  I know that he’s the one person who is with me not because of any interest other than the love than unites us.  There’s nothing I can offer him beyond my womanhood – does that word exist in English?”

Her experience as a new mother:

“I’m still trying to figure it out.  And I have a feeling I will try to do the same for the rest of my life.  Some people put it like it’s very idyllic, some people put it like it’s a torturing experience, but it’s not quite one thing or the other.  It’s like life – it  comes with everything.”

On her music and what’s next:

“I have no idea of where I want to go musically, but I’m fine that way.  I don’t need to remain faithful to any concept, you know.”

Christina Aguilera shows off her shocking weight loss in new TwitPic!

Christina Aguilera just posted this picture on Twitter, and she looks insane! Along with the picture, she captioned, “On set shooting music video with @Alexoficial for #HoyTengoGanasDeTi” She’s lost quite a bit of weight!

In other Christina news, looks like she’s headed back to ‘The Voice!’ The singer will head back to the NBC reality show for season 5, and Shakira will be leaving the show, because she wants to focus on her family.

“I’m not going to be able to do next season because I have to get back to my motherhood and also get back to the studio, the recording studio, to finish my album, the one that I started working on before I had to deliver a baby and before I took this gig with The Voice,” she told Us of her decision to leave the show after just one season. “So yeah, I have to take a little break. But you never know, I might come back!”

The “Hips Don’t Lie” singer and fellow season newbie Usher have been rumored to be leaving the show, amid chatter of Aguilera and Cee Lo Green’s return. But while Daly could confirm that Aguilera will indeed be back, he expressed uncertainty over Green’s situation.

“I don’t know. I think they are working on a deal to be honest with you, and I don’t think it has been finalized,” he told reporters on the red carpet after the live taping. “I don’t know the answer to that. It wouldn’t surprise me if it was, sooner or later. It sounded like today it was like, ‘Yeah, they are working on it,’ which, usually those things work out, but I don’t know.”

On Tuesday night’s elimination show, a member of both Team Usher and Team Shakira were sent packing following America’s vote — Usher’s earnest R&B crooner Vedo and Shakira’s gritty rocker Garrett Gardner. But being returning judges doesn’t necessarily give Blake Shelton and Adam Levine the advantage, Daly clarified.

“As a producer of the show, we do so much storytelling [for the blind auditions], [but] if they get goose bumps, they just hit their button and go,” he said of the coaches’ decision-making. “I mean, are you going to tell me Usher has a bad ear? You know what I mean? I think it was a coincidence that our two new coaches had people go home tonight.”

New body for her return to ‘The Voice.’

Shakira Debuts New Fragrance, ELIXIR.

Elixir by Shakira introduces us to a new dimension of Shakira, a stunning interpretation of a powerful femininity inspired by an exotic sensuality. The story of Elixir takes place in the deserts of Morocco, evoking images of the sun setting over golden sand.

Neroli flower mixed with the exotic freshness of white pepper provides the opening of this oriental fragrance. The top note gives way to a feminine floral heart composed of freesia and peony wrapped in a fruity, velvety ‘apricot skin’ accord. Elixir’s bottom note reveals a balsamic mix of benzoin and sugar cane, with white cedar wood, musk and warm amber.

Elixir by Shakira, $29 – $36 USD, is available at Kohl’s and Sears.
