Singer/Voice judge Kelly Clarkson proved last night that "What doesn't kill you makes you stronger," as she returned to her 'Voice' duties mere days after having surgery. The 37-year-old Clarkson resumed life like the appendectomy she had last week never happened. She put on a brave face, genuine smile, and coached her 2 remaining contestants. Business as usual! (What appendectomy?)
On Sunday, Kelly Clarkson tweeted the following regarding her recovery:
"Recovering after surgery super duper sucks. Turns out I don’t ‘rest’ well (so bored), pain meds make me feel a different kind of horrible to where I question if I’d just rather feel the pain instead, and two out of the three scars feel as if Lord Voldemort is always near."

You are a fabulous human. I have nothing but respect for you.
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen made rare public appearance at Met Gala, and trolls slam their appearance.
Twin fashion icons Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen made their expected appearance at fashion prom (Met Gala) on Sunday night. The 32-year-old fashion designers were decked out in Chanel couture, with Ashley wearing a long coat dress with knee-high boots, and Mary-Kate wearing a retro jacket with a long skirt.
Mary-Kate and Ashley also coordinated their glam, from their hair to their make up. Hair had their signature textured waves, and their make-up artist gave both women a smoky eye look.
As gorgeous as the two queens of fashion looked, their were plenty of online trolls commenting about their appearance. As I skimmed the comments section on various articles on Facebook and Instagram, a lot of people said they "looked dead," and many also commented on Mary-Kate's neck (people said her neck looked wrinkled and old). Of course people knocked them for being "too skinny," and there was that rare person who said that Mary-Kate should be in jail because she's responsible for Heath Ledger's death (this was made me want to vomit because it is the furthest thing from the truth, and highly inappropriate).
My Two Cents
I think they looked sophisticated and fabulous at the Met Gala. For all you trolls that have nothing better to do than to rag on innocent people, get a life! Obviously Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen don't care what you think, nor should they. They are too busy living their best life, creating incredible fashion.
Slay on, gorgeouses!
Amy Schumer's little peanut is here! The 37-year-old comedienne welcomed her first child, a boy, with husband Chris Fischer late Sunday night.
Schumer posted the happy news, along with a pic of her newborn on Instagram.
Congrats to Amy and Chris on their beautiful baby boy! You're a rockstar, Amy!
Everybody runs on Dunkin, including the Starks, Targaryens, Lannisters, and everyone in between.
If you watched Sunday night's episode of 'Game of Thrones,' a scene involving Dany, Jon, and Tormund also featured a 2 second appearance by a disposable coffee mug. GoT fans quickly took pics of the scene and shared it on social media.
The cup was mistaken for a Starbucks coffee cup by many viewers. However, GoT expert James Hibberb pointed out that the stars of the show never visited Starbucks or any other coffee chain while on set. They usually got their caffeine fix from craft services.

So where in Westeros can I get a skinny mocha latte with extra foam and a bearclaw?
This episode was brought to you by Mountain Men coffee beans. Get your coffee made with cows milk or goats milk. If you want your coffee extra hot, take your coffee out back so one of Dany's dragons can breathe on it.
After Meghan Markle and Prince Harry welcomed their new son, the new dad went outside to speak to reporters. Prince Harry had a 'proud papa' smile on his face, and he could not stop gushing about his new son.
"It’s been the most amazing experience I can ever possibly imagine. How any woman does what they do is beyond comprehension. We’re both absolutely thrilled and so grateful for all the love and support from everybody out there, it’s been amazing, so we just wanted to share this with everybody."
Do they have any names yet? According to Prince Harry, they are still sifting through name ideas.
My Two Cents
He looks so proud and I'm so happy for them! Parenting is the most incredible journey you will ever have, and papa life already looks good on him.
I remember when he was a kid, and now he has a boy of his own. Gah I feel old, LOL!
Congrats proud mama and papa! I know mama Diana is looking down from Heaven and is so incredibly proud.
The Royal Baby is officially here!
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are the proud parents of a baby boy! The new parents released an official statement on their sussexroyal account:
"The Duchess and baby are both healthy and well, and the couple thank members of the public for their shared excitement and support during this very special time in their lives. More details will be shared in the forthcoming days."
The baby boy weighed in at 7lbs, 3oz.
Congrats to the new parents! Sending an abundance of blessings to you from across the pond! <3
It is being reported that the Duchess of Sussex is currently in labor. Buckingham Palace was first to report the happy news.
Markle reportedly went into labor in the early hours of Monday morning.
If you are anxiously hoping to see what the new baby will look like, you will have to wait until a later date. In April, the royal couple made a decision to keep the baby private so they can enjoy their baby as a new family.
My Two Cents
I'm super excited for this baby and respect their decision to enjoy their newborn privately. The newborn days are so important for both parents and baby.
More to come!
After leaving the US 'Voice' for the UK 'Voice,', Jennifer Hudson is saying goodbye to The Voice completely. Hudson had been a part of the global singing competition for 3 seasons.
A source close to the actress/singer stated that "Jennifer has absolutely loved her time on The Voice but she’s decided not to return. It wasn’t an easy decision. She would love to continue doing the show. But she has a lot on and something had to give."
In March, Hudson spoke about a possible exit during an interview with Radio Times.
"You know, I am an actress as well. It's kind of going into film season for me. I was thinking that I truly, truly love this and that's why I'm three seasons deep in. I want to continue it, but I don't know that my schedule will allow me to."
*throws shoe at Jennifer Hudson's chair*
You have been an awesome judge on this show. Your charismatic personality breathes life into every episode and you inspire singers everywhere with your encouraging words. I know what ever you do next will be absolutely amazing.
Do you live in the country? Do you hate walking down those dirt roads in the rain, only get arrive home with wet, nasty, muddy pants? Yuck, nature.

My Two Cents
I guess rolling around in the mud wearing a $25 pair of jeans is undignified.
If you actually wear these distressed jeans, you need your head examined.
If you have a frozen bag of Tyson chicken strips, you may want to pay attention.
About 12 million pounds of ready-to-eat frozen chicken strips are being recalled because they may contain metal. This is an expansion of a previous recall of over 69,000 pounds of chicken strips from this past March.
