Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton are looking to eventually walking down the aisle (Picture: Rex)
Gwen Stefani had major doubts her pop career could be resurrected but now finds herself at the top of the charts much to her shock.
The No Doubt star felt overlooked before giving things a go with new single Let Me Reintroduce Myself.
She debuted the song her first in four years on The Voice, in the US, clad in bejewelled, floral hot pants and boots and confessed: I honestly never really was planning to do new music though I fantasised about it.
At 51, the What You Waiting For? singer said holding out for a hot track never worked, as they always went to younger rivals.
I never get songs sent to me, just so you know. I always ask, Can someone send me Umbrella by Rihanna?
I would do that song. Do you know what Im saying? she told Apple Musics Zane Lowe.
But her Christmas has come early, after her comeback track topped this weeks iTunes charts in the US.
She also explained why she has delayed her wedding to country singer Blake Shelton, 44, until next year. The mum-of-three who was wed to Bush rocker Gavin Rossdale, 55, for 15 years didnt want to get married in a mask and wants her folks at the bash.
I just want my parents there, she said.
They wouldnt come to Thanksgiving because they were so scared [about the pandemic], so, really, I would rather it not be a Covid situation.
I would rather not have masks and that kind of thing.
Even when you cut it down to just family, its still too many people for Covid, so were sort of going to see what happens in the next few months.
Dua Lipa is having a ball as she muscles in on world domination.
The Future Nostalgia singer appeared to be shaping up for a new assault on chart success as she was pictured lifting a monster disco ball above her head.
The 25-year-old put on a leggy display, donning heeled ankle boots, as she got down on her knees for a playful shoot with the dance floor accessory.
After her lockdown disco album dominated charts worldwide, Dua joked of her promo shot: If I cant dance to it, I dont want it.
As for being queen of the pop scene, she said: I kind of set off jokingly being like, World domination, thats my plan! The double Grammy winner is back in London after quarantining in LA with US model boyfriend Anwar Hadid, 21, this summer.
One Direction are talking more than at any time before amid fresh chat of a reunion.
After anti-climactic tenth anniversary celebrations this summer, Liam Payne can envisage a full-scale comeback happening in the future.
I definitely think in the future theres time for it, but I think everyones enjoying doing their own solo stuff for right now, the 27-year-old said.
But the Naughty List singer says dialogue with his bandmates has increased recently.
He told Best of Capitals Jingle Bell Ball with Barclaycard: Its hard to speak on behalf of everyone because I feel I get asked this more than any of the boys, but weve spoken a lot more during Covid which has been great.
His comments come after Harry Styles said hed always be proud of his 1D days.
The Watermelon Sugar singer, 26, said last week: When you look at the history of people coming out of bands and starting solo careers, they feel this need to apologize for being in the band. Dont worry, everyone, that wasnt me! Now I get to do what I really want to do. But we loved being in the band.
Chart queen Mariah Carey says George Michaels death on Christmas Day 2016 affected her intensely.
The All I Want For Christmas Is You singer said she had dinner with the Last Christmas legend shortly before his death.
We had a lot of things in common. We had a lot discussions, said Mimi, 50, whose festive ditty this week went to No.1 26 years after its original release.
I loved George, growing up. I loved Wham! His album, Faith, to me, was perfect, she told Apple Music. When he passed away, that affected me in a really intense way. But we have his music.
Looking for love is like walking on broken glass for Annie Lennoxs daughter Lola, who hopes to replicate mums success.
The 29-year-old said new tune La La Love Me captures the fervent wishes for love, real love and is about the phase between attraction and commitment, where love has not yet been expressed and uncertainty of the future makes you flip between bliss and anxiety.
The track was produced by her Eurythmics star mum, 65.
There are not too many firsts left for Madonna, but the Queen of Pop has revealed she has been inked for the very first time at the ripe old age of 62.
The Like A Virgin singer had the initials of her six children Lourdes, 24, Rocco, 20, David, 15, Mercy, 14, and eight-year-old twins Stella and Estere L R D M S E tattooed on her wrist.
She shared pictures of tattoo artist East Iz busy at work at Shamrock Social Club, in Hollywood.
And in a nod to her 1984 hit Like A Virgin, she changed the songs lyrics touched for the very first time to: Inked for The Very First Time #family.
MNEK recalled his folks stunned reaction after his Myspace account landed him a music deal at age 15. The London-born Head & Heart singer told Clara Amfos This City podcast: It got me discovered by industry bigwigs. My parents were overwhelmed to see so many white people in our house offering me money.
Kate Winslet will remind folk on her deathbed that she cracked Hollywood and won an Oscar by always being myself. The Ammonite actress, 45, said: I want to be able to look young actors in the eye and say, People told me I was too fat. I had to lose weight. And look, I did it. I will be saying that to my grave.
