Katy Perry, Usher, Play for Military Kids at Inaugural Concert

Monday, January 21st, 2013

A star-studded concert event, featuring Katy Perry, Usher, and cast members from the show “Glee” took center stage as the presidential inauguration festivities kicked off this weekend, with First Lady Michelle Obama and the Second Lady Dr. Jill Biden hosting the “Kid’s Inaugural Concert” for the children of military families.  More from The Hollywood Reporter:

Obama and Biden took the stage near the end, calling in groups of military kids on video chats broadcast on the big screens. The first lady in particular was earnest in her words, appealing to all ages.

“You see, when we said we wanted to host a concert to honor our military kids, let me tell you, everyone wanted to be here. Usher wanted to be here,” she said. “Katy Perry wanted to be here. Nick Cannon, the folks from ‘Glee,’ and all the other amazing performers — they wanted to be here, too. And let me tell you, they’re not here for me. They’re not here for Dr. Biden. They are here for all of you. Because they know the kind of sacrifices that you all make every single day.”

No More Children for Mariah Carey

Thursday, November 10th, 2011

The singer Mariah Carey, whose twins Moroccan and Monroe recently turned 6 months old, announced this week that her two children will be her only children.

She had said before that pregnancy was hard on her body, telling Barbara Walters in October, “I don’t think I understood the enormity or the magnitude of what it really does to your body.”

This week, the actress told Access Hollywood that she had decided to not pursue future pregnancies: “If God chooses to do that to me, then that would happen; other than that, I don’t think we would try for that ever again,” Mariah told Access as she promoted her new partnership with Jenny Craig, where she is a paid spokesperson. “I really don’t know if I can make it through after what I went through, it was really tough.”

Mariah Carey Didn’t Anticipate the ‘Enormity’ of Pregnancy

Monday, October 24th, 2011

The singer Mariah Carey, in an interview on the TV news magazine “20/20,” said that she was not prepared for what pregnancy would do to her body, reports. Carey and her husband, actor Nick Cannon, were bringing their 6-month-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe, on television for the first time.

“I don’t think I understood the enormity or the magnitude of what it really does to your body,” Carey told Barbara Walters in the interview. “It’s not just, oh you don’t look pretty and you have a bump.”

In fact, Carey said, the news of the pregnancy was initially “scary” because Carey had already suffered a miscarriage and was warned of complications that can result from carrying multiples.
