The Voice host Emma Willis: I lacked belief until I did Big Brother because I’d been a model

Autore: Celebrity News

Emma Willis seems to have it all. The gorgeous presenter hosts some of the biggest shows on TV including Big Brother and The Voice, has a successful showbiz marriage to McBusted star Matt Willis and balances it all with being a mum to her two children.

But despite her achievements, Emma admits that she battled insecurities for many years. The former model feared that she’d only landed a job on television because of her good looks, causing her to lack confidence in her skills.

‘I felt I’d got into TV by a fluke because I’d been a model; I looked alright and could string a sentence together,’ says Emma, 38.

‘I never believed they were 100 per cent behind me for my ability as a presenter.’

It wasn’t until she began hosting a Big Brother spin-off show in 2010 that Emma really began to believe in herself.

‘I lacked self-belief until I started doing Big Brother’s Little Brother,’ she explains. ‘I knew then it was something I could do for hours.

‘I feel comfortable now and I’m really glad it’s taken time. You want to be the slow-burner, not the firework that just explodes.’

Now that she’s hit her stride Emma hopes to remain a regular face on the box for many years to come.

‘I want this to be my job until I retire,’ she reveals. ‘Because I don’t know what else I’d do.’

Go, Emma! The newly-confident presenter is seriously in demand these days; after hosting another popular series of Celebrity Big Brother, she’s back on The Voice on Saturday nights. Luckily she somehow manages to cram everything into her busy life.

‘We don’t actually film at the same time,’ she told TV Extra. ‘The Voice doesn’t start again until March for the live shows.

‘It’s all very in your face though, so I apologise for that! I’m trying to go away for a little while.’

Maxime Le Forestier ne “comprend pas les gens choqués” par le nouvel hymne des Enfoirés

Autore: Closermag.fr

Le chanteur Maxime Le Forestier ne comprend pas que le dernier titre des Enfoirés, Toute la vie, puisse choquer. Pour lui, il ne s’agit que de “deux générations qui se disent leurs quatre vérités.”

“Anti-jeunes”, la dernière chanson des Enfoirés ? C’est ce que tout le monde dit. Mais Maxime Le Forestier ne comprend pas ces vives critiques qui enflamment la Toile. Le chanteur de 66 ans, Enfoiré fidèle, engagé aussi aux côtés des associations Partage et Sol en si, en a gros sur le coeur. Au micro d’Europe 1, l’artiste français a déclaré : “Vraiment je ne comprends pas ces gens qui sont choqués par cette chanson.” Pour le chanteur, ce sont “deux générations qui se disent leurs quatre vérités”. En effet, dans le clip, la troupe des Enfoirés s’oppose à un groupe de jeunes. Maxime Le Forestier a ajouté que ce titre est en fait “un message anti-vieux”, avant d’expliquer : “Dans cette chanson, les vieux sont aussi cons que les jeunes.”

“Il faudrait vous bouger”

Le mythique interprète de San Francisco est monté au créneau pour défendre l’hymne 2015 des Enfoirés, qui ne cesse d’être au centre de la polémique, en parlant de simple “malentendu”. Dans un premier temps, la chanson Toute la vie avait essuyé des critiques acerbes sur Twitter car sa ressemblance avec Get lucky de Daft Punk laissait penser à un plagiat en bonne et due forme. Et puis, assez vite, ce sont les paroles de la chanson en elles-mêmes qui ont fait grogné les internautes. Elles sont restées en travers de la gorge de beaucoup car elles revêtent une dimension très moralisatrice. Les Enfoirés, qui perpétuent le souvenir de Coluche, chantent ainsi, parlant des jeunes : “Vous avez tout, l’amour et la lumière/On s’est battus, on n’a rien volé. Tout ce qu’on a il a fallu le gagner/C’est à vous de jouer, mais il faudrait vous bouger”. Face à l’ampleur de la grogne, le gouvernement n’a pas pu se mettre en sourdine : la ministre de la Culture, Fleur Pellerin, a ainsi évoqué sur BFMtv, à propos de cette chanson, une “maladresse dans la formulation”. Jean-Jacques Goldman, Enfoiré de la première heure et surtout auteur des paroles de la chanson décriée, a tenté d’expliquer le fond de sa pensée, par le biais de son compte Facebook. Il a publié : “C’est une chanson dans laquelle des adolescents reprochent aux générations qui les ont précédés l’état du monde qu’ils leur laissent : pollution, chômage, violence, dette, misère.” Si le chouchou des Français le dit..

E’ un periodo intensissimo per la spagnola 36enne, senza un attimo di respiro. Impegnata a teatro con la commedia “Mi piaci perché sei così”, non ha smesso un istante di girare per l’Italia, calcando i palcoscenici con Gabriele Pignotta.

Il prossimo giovedì 12 marzo, poi, arriverà in tv al timone di Italia’s got talent, talent show al suo esordio su Sky Uno, dopo essere andato in onda per anni su Canale 5, con non solo una conduttrice tutta nuova, ma pure la giuria, formata da Claudio Bisio, Luciana Littizzetto, Nina Zilli e Frank Matano.

Sarà un successo? Probabile. La cordialità di Vanessa Incontrada, il suo essere solare, allegra e coinvolgente le hanno sempre fatto raccogliere consensi sul piccolo schermo.  Intanto, però, c’è il set.

Con Giulio Berruti Vanessa è in sintonia. A casa, ad attenderla, c’è il compagno Rossano Laurini, con cui vive una bella storia d’amore dal 2007, e il figlio Isal, venuto al mondo a luglio 2008 e che tra cinque mesi compirà 7 anni. Tra famiglia e lavoro non rimangono spazi vuoti.

Vogue Williams on her Bear Grylls adventure: I missed pizza more than my husband Brian McFadden

Autore: Celebrity News

She’s used to the glamorous life as a model, DJ and Mrs Brian McFadden, but Vogue Williams, 29, has swapped creature comforts for hardcore survival in the Costa Rican jungle with adventurer Bear Grylls, 40, and seven other celebs on ITV show Mission Survive. We’re talking skinning your own dinner and sleeping with bugs. Yuck! Vogue reveals all.

Did Brian give you advice before you headed into the wilderness?
To stay positive and enjoy myself as much as I could. He thought I’d be quite good at it, but actually I was terrified. But Bear’s so cool, you just can’t say no to him!

How do you think Brian would’ve coped?
Well, I’m 100 per cent stronger than him when it comes to anything like that – he’d struggle with everything! He’d hate not having the food he wanted, where he’d have to sleep and having to get up and do so much every day.

What a diva!

Yeah, he’s more of a diva than me. Now that I’m back, he’s like: ‘I’d like to do something with Bear Grylls.’ I’m like: ‘Oh my God, I’d pay to watch that!’ I don’t think Bear could handle him!

Did you miss Brian?

Yes. When I wasn’t thinking about food, I was thinking about Brian. I did miss food the most though – all I wanted was a big pizza.

Did you have to kill what you ate?

No, but we had to skin and gut it. We had to eat rabbit and Tom [Rosenthal] decided to wear this disgusting rabbit fur with blood all over it around his neck. It was hard because I don’t even like cutting up a chicken breast.

Were there any arguments?

There were a few between certain people but nothing major. We were too tired and too hungry to argue. If someone’s difficult to live with in those conditions it would’ve been almost impossible.

Did your body change at all?

I lost about half a stone, but we filmed it just before Christmas so I was soon back to my normal weight! I just looked a bit skinny and my face was quite gaunt.

* Bear Grylls: Mission Survive is on ITV at 9pm on Fridays
