Gwen Stefani: Using Alternative Medicine to Get Pregnant at 47?!

You know what they say: another day, another story about how Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton want nothing more in the whole entire universe than to have a baby together!

Seriously, it’s like every time you turn around there’s another rumor about Gwen and Blake and their family planning.

It’s honestly a little overwhelming.

Just in the past month, we’ve heard that Gwen “feels like Blake is her true soul mate and there’s nothing she’d love more than to have a baby with him.”

Ideally they’d have twins — more bang for your buck, you know.

And if Gwen did succeed in getting pregnant with those twins, she’d holler at Beyonce for some advice!

We’ve also heard that the lovebirds are doing nothing to prevent a pregnancy, and that if they did manage to conceive, no one around them would be surprised.

Again, those are all little updates from just the past month.

But although all the whispers and rumors are very exciting, there’s still one very important thing to remember.

Gwen is 47 years old.

While it’s possible for her to conceive, and while women older than her have given birth to healthy, lovely babies, the fact is that it’s going to be more difficult to have a baby at her age.

And if she is able to get pregnant, there are certain risks for women of “advanced maternal age.”

So it’s a good thing Gwen is thinking ahead!

According to a source who spoke to Hollywood Life, “Gwen would love to get pregnant, things with Blake are so perfect, having a baby with him would be icing on the cake.”

Nothing we haven’t heard before!

“She’s a big believer in alternative medicine,’ the source continued, “so she wants to do it in the most natural way possible.”

“She’s been getting acupuncture and working with a Chinese herbalist to increase her fertility.”

In addition to that, “She’s been monitoring all her hormone levels and they’re really balanced.”

“She’s also doing hypnosis because she knows there’s a huge mind-body connection and she’s got a good friend that swears that helped her get pregnant in her 40’s.”

And on top of the hypnosis, acupuncture, and trips to the Chinese herbalist, “All of Gwen’s friends are supporting her on this journey, they’ll send her articles about other women that have gotten pregnant at her age to encourage her.”

“Gwen knows it’s not the norm to get pregnant at her age,” the source admits, “but she’s never been average.”

“If anyone can make this happen it’s her.”

Really though, it’s not a matter of “making this happen” — it’s a matter of whether or not her body is capable of conceiving.

But it is important to remember that Gwen had her youngest son when she was 43, and while four years could mean a world of difference when it comes to reproductive stuff, that’s still impressive.

We just hope that if Gwen and Blake really do want a baby together this badly, they’re able to do it, naturally or through adoption or whatever works for them.

The Hollywood Gossip

Building the perfect player using traits from non-All-Stars

Building the perfect NBA player using All-Stars would be simple.

What if LeBron James had Stephen Curry's range? Could anyone stop Kevin Durant with John Wall's speed? DeMarcus Cousins with Chris Paul's maniacal focus would be unguardable. Giannis Antetokounmpo combined with Kyrie Irving's handle and jump shot is a nightmare to imagine.

It's easy to play this game using All-Stars because they're already mostly perfect, with just one or two flaws. Building a superstar out of everyday rotation players, however, is a much tougher challenge.

Frame: Kristaps Porzingis

Porzinigis is called The Unicorn for a reason. He's a 7-foot-3 center who moves with the fluidity of a guard, his absurd length makes him a tough hurdle at the rim, and his mobility allows him to limit penetration on the perimeter.

The same dynamics apply on offense. Porzingis' height allows him to shoot over most defenders, and he has the wheels to drive past almost anybody with enough size to contest his shot.

Athleticism: Zach LaVine

This one needs no explanation. LaVine is the most electric dunker the league has seen since Vince Carter.

Defense: Rudy Gobert

It's almost unfair to draw from the All-NBA talents of Gobert, who was worthy of an All-Star selection but was simply squeezed out due to the overabundance of talent in the West last season.

Gobert is the best rim-protector in the league, and nobody is particularly close. The Stifle Tower is the very definition of a defensive anchor capable of erasing any mistakes made on the perimeter by walling off the basket.

Shooting: C.J. McCollum

Specialists like J.J. Redick and Patty Mills might be better spot-up shooters, but they need other teammates to create for them, or to come off screens at the very least. They can't get their own shot.

McCollum is prolific in every scenario. He made 41.5 percent of his catch-and-shoot threes while also nailing 43.1 percent of pull-up treys last season. And he's just as deadly in the mid-range, where he can attack off a screen and rise calmly for an elbow jumper as the defense backpedals.

Handle: Jamal Crawford

Crawford is still cooking defenders on the regular as he heads into his 18th season. The ageless wonder has shown zero signs of decline because everything he creates comes out of pure skill.

There isn't a single dribble move that Crawford doesn't have in his arsenal. He can handle with either hand, string together multiple crossovers, change directions on the fly, switch between his legs, and use his signature behind-the-back hesitation move to make defenders look foolish.

Playmaking: Ricky Rubio

Rubio is quietly one of the league’s most enchanting and electric players, but he struggles because the modern game demands scoring above all else from the lead guard. Rubio can’t finish, but he’s easily a top-five distributor.

The Spaniard is simply a genius with the basketball. Whether it's going behind the back, spinning full-court alley-oops, or just making the correct hit-ahead passes to advance the play, Rubio always puts it on a platter.

Go-to move: Mike Conley’s floater

Conley is another classic point guard who tries to distribute before looking for his own shot, even though he can create quality offense whenever he wants with his patented floater.

Not only does he have excellent timing and touch, but the ambidextrous Conley can launch his floater with either hand. The old-school move makes him an impossibly slippery scoring threat whenever he gets into the lane.

Mentality: Patrick Beverley

Playing hard is a talent, and nobody plays harder than Beverley, who approaches every game like he's on a 10-day contract. The Los Angeles Clippers guard is an absolute nightmare on defense, and is sure to hassle (and even occasionally injure) opponents as he gives everything he's got. He never takes a possession off and doesn't back down from any challenge.

Texas bans reporters from using social media during post-practice interviews

Tom Herman certainly isn't wasting time in making his mark on the Texas program, as the Longhorns unveiled a new policy Wednesday prohibiting reporters from using social media during post-practice interviews.

The statement regarding the new rule obtained by Anwar Richardson of shows that Texas wants reporters to hold off on posting via social media until after interviews have concluded.

Going forward, our policy for media attending post-practice availabilities will be that social media posts will not be permitted during those sessions. Any social media entry should come after the conclusion of all post-practice media interviews have concluded.

Our hope is that you would take time to review your post and re-listen to the questions and answers in an effort to increase accuracy and insure the necessary context in each of your social media reports.

We hope this will not only allow everyone more time to craft those commentaries/reports, but also allow necessary time to absorb full context. It also will be beneficial in providing full attention for follow-up questions or the next line of questioning during the actual interviews. Thank you in advance for adhering to this new policy.

Expectations are high in Austin for Herman’s first season with a program that has failed to win more than six games in each of the last three years. Instituting new rules on the media certainly won’t make things easier on the new coach.

Kanye West Is Using An Old Tweet As Defense Against TLOP Lawsuit

Kanye West’s recent departure from Tidal ended his tenure with the popular streaming service. But that isn’t stopping the lawsuit filed against him for “conning” fans into thinking that his critically acclaimed The Life Of Pablo was a Tidal exclusive.

TMZ is reporting that Kanye West is pulling a Trump and turning to Twitter to counter the allegations that he deceived fans into subscribing to Tidal by insinuating that The Life Of Pablo would remain exclusive to the streaming service. It eventually was.

In an old tweet that he sent out on March 15, 2016 the Chicago artist called The Life Of Pablo a “living breathing changing creative expression” with the hashtag “contemporaryart.”

In other words, fans who’ve subscribed to Tidal had access to the original piece of art in all its glory and the versions that were made available on other streaming services have been tweaked, reworked, and changed to his liking.

Will this explanation hold water in court? In an era where alternative facts and social media defenses reign supreme, who the heck knows?

But the one thing that’s for sure is that this defense may be as creative a thing as Kanye West has ever created.

Hit ‘Em Up: Culture Vultures Kendall & Kylie Sued For Using Tupac’s Image On Their Trash T-Shirts

Splash News


Kendall And Kylie Jenner Sued For Tupac T-Shirts

Kendall and Kylie Jenner are facing a lawsuit for those ridiculously headazz Tupac t-shirts. As previously reported the culture vultures were obliterated for shopping around $ 125 Tupac and Biggie shirts superimposed with their faces on them.

Now they’re facing the consequences for their actions in the form of a lawsuit. According to TMZ the photographer who took at least one of the iconic shots of Tupac they used is suing the Jenner sisters.

Michael Miller who previously photographed Eazy-E, Angelina Jolie and Jack Nicholson is suing for any profits made off the shirts. Miller also added in his suit that he NEVER wanted to work with the Jenners, especially Kendall since her Pepsi disaster.

No word yet on if they’ll also face a suit for the Biggie shirts, but B.I.G.’s mother Violetta Wallace is already BIG mad over them.

Are you glad that the Jenners are facing a lawsuit for their Pac shirts???

Prescott accused of using machine to sign memorabilia

A memorabilia company is accusing Dak Prescott of using a machine to sign his autograph on trading cards instead of signing himself, reports ESPN's Darren Rovell.

Beckett Grading Services has refused to verify the Dallas Cowboys quarterback’s signature from Panini’s 2016 Prizm set after evaluating five autographed cards from collectors.

"They had a very machine-like feel," Steve Grad, principal authenticator at Beckett, said. "You could see the starts and stops."

Grad believes Prescott used an autopen to sign the cards, which Rovell says “politicians have used to sign documents in bulk since the late 1950s.”

“I immediately knew they were autopen,” Grad said. “I’ve never heard of a modern athlete doing this.”

Panini requires that athletes on its cards sign an affidavit stating that what they are returning is genuine.

Prescott’s representatives and Panini officials didn’t immediately respond to ESPN’s request for comments on the allegations.
