These Celebrities Have An Amazing Talent

November 4th, 2014 2:37pm EST
C'est Magnifique! Celebs Who Speak Three Or More Languages
Many celebrities are bilingual, but those who speak three or more languages are even more impressive.

Salma Hayek Pinault ("Frida," "Puss In Boots," "Grown Ups") was born in Mexico, and her native language is Spanish. She also speaks English, Portuguese and Arabic fluently. She is married to French billionaire Francois-Henri Pinault, so we suspect she speaks his language as well. But she's modest. She told David Letterman in 2013: "My French is just a humiliation every time I try to do it...I'm just not good at it."

Viggo Mortensen ("Lord of the Rings," "Hidalgo," "A History of Viole...

13 Celebrities With Irresistible Accents
There's something about a foreign accent that's incredibly sexy. It makes us dismiss certain flaws if someone's voice has that Irish lilt or Australian inflection.

And let's not forget the sensual Spanish and Latin American accents!

Emma Watson stole our hearts as Hermione in the "Harry Potter" franchise when she was just 10 years old. The actress has matured into a beautiful young woman, and her British accent is sophisticated - likely because her parents are both affluent attorneys.

She's also appeared in films such as "My Week With Marilyn," "The Perks of Being a Wallflower," "This Is...

Shakira is the first person on Facebook to earn 100 million "likes" on her profile page. Only Facebook's own brand page and the profile for its mobile app have more "likes" than the singer.

Sexiest 2014 World Cup Wives And Girlfriends (WAGs)
2014 marks the 20th World Cup football (soccer) tournament, and where there's football, there's WAGs. That's 'wives and girlfriends' to those not familiar with the term.

The acronym became prevalent during the 18th FIFA (Fédération Internationale de Football Association) World Cup Finals in 2006, when the British press began using it to reference the lovely lady friends of their national team's star players.

Since then it's spread to mean the wives and girlfriends of athletes -- most of whom look pretty darn good all the time.

Perhaps the most popular WAGs are former Spice Girl Victoria ...

The 10 Most Epic Lip Sync Fails
Why is it that we just love when a celeb makes a complete and utter fool of themselves, particularly on live television? Lip synching is a tender topic among musicians. Many admit to hating it, but give up when it comes down to a perfect performance or a mediocre one. Many rely on it to sound exactly like their prerecorded track. Still, some are so void of any real talent that they use it as a crutch to get through the performance. Do you recall any of these epic lip sync fails?

Our March Playlist - Check Out The Best Songs Off The Best Albums This Month

March 31st, 2014 7:00pm EDT
Beck - Morning Phase
March was a rich month for music releases. After listening and reviewing multiple albums, it is always fun to pick out one big time standout. Sometimes it is a difficult choice, while other times it’s the only choice (particularly on a sub-par album). After looking back through my late-February and March reviews, I’ve compiled a playlist of one favorite from each album.



From the album Morning Phase

Note: Morning Phase was a late February release that wasn’t reviewed until March.

Folks, Beck is the man. Morning Phase was yet another stacked album from the hipster w...

Review: Shakira, 'Shakira.'
Shakira. is a sound, enjoyable effort, misses a “Hips Don’t Lie” caliber hit

Latin-pop star Shakira returns following a five-year hiatus between English-language albums (she released Spanish album Sale el Sol in October 2010). 2009 LP She Wolf was Shakira’s previous album of such vein, but failed to match the success of 2005 effort Oral Fixation, Vol. 2, an album fueled by a monster single (“Hips Don’t Lie”). Despite critical acclaim and a successful single in “She Wolf” (peaked at no. 11 on the Billboard Hot 100), She Wolf wasn’t a commercial triumph in the U.S. Shakira is likely antic...

'The Voice' Recap: Who Won The Final Four Spots?

'The Voice' Recap: Who Won The Final Four Spots?
There are only four spots left on The Voice, and just one night left in which to fill them. Thankfully, since this is only an hour-long episode, there shouldn't be much time for filler. Let's see who gets the distinction of being the last person added to each of the coaches' teams.

New Yorker Joe Trombino bats leadoff here, but his version of Al Green's "Love and Happiness" doesn't initially impress our coaches. "He's too behind the beat," says Adam, and indeed Joe seems a little too caught up in his dance moves than the vocal performance, a fatal flaw for many Voice hopefuls. He goes home...

'The Voice' Recap: Season 6 Blind Auditions, Part 2
In the first night of Season 6 auditions on The Voice, Team Blake picked up 1 of 12 singers, Team Adam and Team Shakira landed 2 and Team Usher a leading 3. There are still plenty of spots to fill, though, so let's get to it.

We start off with another returning artist, Delvin Choice, who comes armed with Donny Hathaway's "A Song For You." That piece was pretty much killed by Jesse Campbell in Season 2, but Delvin nails it himself, earning three quick button pushes from Adam, Shakira and Blake. Usher waits until almost the last moment, but he's finally persuaded, too. Delvin is understandab...

Shakira has come under fire from a politician in her native Colombia for putting out possibly the hottest music video ever.

Rihanna, who duets with the hip-shaking singer on her latest single, "Can't Remember to Forget You," also stars in the video for the song, and the two singers get pretty steamy while rolling around together in some sexy lingerie.

Everyone's body is different, but some of celebrity women seem to just melt away the pounds after they give birth. Even better, some of them get paid to do it thanks to endorsements from weight loss companies. Here are some of Hollywood's best post-baby bodies:
