Shakira’s hips don’t lie and neither does her waistline.
The songstress shares her fitness secrets in the new issue of Women’s Health magazine.
In this April issue, Shakira reveals her workout regimen, and why she loves to dance so much. Check her out in Women’s Health!
On her workout routine:
“I try to eat healthy and I try to exercise. Not only going to the gym, because sometimes I do get tired of working out, the gym, the treadmill, the stuff that all women dread. I recently decided to just do sports, because they’re so much fun and they accomplish the same purpose, which is ultimately to keep you fit. So I planned a whole day routine or roller skating, playing basketball, and playing tennis and swimming. So every day I would do something different and that seemed to put me back in shape. I didn’t have a maternity leave. After I delivered my baby, I had to come to Los Angeles to do ‘The Voice.’”
On her love for dance:
“I think that I’ve been dancing since the moment I was born. That’s an exaggeration, of course, but I think it’s such a cultural thing too. In Colombia, people dance. It’s what you do.”
On being a judge on The Voice:
“I had a great time working on ‘The Voice.’ It was fun-quintessentially fun- and that’s why I’m coming back. Hanging out with the guys, you know, they’re tough cookies. I got to say, but it’s a blast.”
On her single “Hips Don’t Lie”:
“The reason why I named that song like that is because, when I’m in the studio, I know when a song is ready and it can be taken out of the oven, and it’s exactly when my hips start moving. So I used to say to my musicians, ‘My hips don’t lie! Are they moving? They’re not moving! So this is not ready.’ And that’s how I came up with it, the idea for the song.”
Graham Eliot is loving the skin he’s in.
The MasterChef judge has lost 147 pounds since having his sleeve gastrectomy nine months ago.
“I thought it would take two or three years to do this,” Elliot tells PEOPLE. He continues, “I thought I’d lose 60 or 70 pounds the first year.”
Elliot, 37, is now 253 pounds, after tipping the scales at nearly 400 lbs. at one point.
The famed chef works out at least every other day now, and can run 5 miles.
He even asks that his dressing room on the set of MasterChef be filled with healthy snacks, as opposed to sweets.
“In the past I would get stressed and ask craft services for cookies and candy,” says Elliot, who is currently in Los Angeles filming the upcoming season of the hit cooking competition show. “But now I know my stomach is the size of a banana and I need to have food that just gives me energy. So I can either have a moment of sweetness but feel really bad or I can order something delicious and light like sashimi.”
The newly released Mad Men poster will make your head spin.
The enchanting poster (shown above) was released on March 7 and created by Milton Glaser, who is most recognized for designing the “I ♥ NY” logo.
The show’s series creator, Matthew Weiner, chatted with the NY Times about the artwork, saying, “There is a dreamlike quality to it, and believe it or not, it is related to the show, and not because it’s psychedelic.”
Jennifer Connelly stuns in the April issue of Dujour magazine.
The Noah actress speaks on working with her husband, who just happens to be famed director Paul Bettany and what it’s like for her kids to have famous parents.
Check out some of her DuJour excerpts!
On working on Shelter work with husband Paul Bettany:
“It was kind of strange, going to work in the morning with the director. I had this fantasy that we’d talk about scenes all day. In reality, if the man sat down, there was a line of people wanting to talk to him. Since we moved so quickly, I think he felt his wife was the least of his worries. We’ve been married for 11 years. We have kids together, so I feel confident in our ability to navigate situations.”
On her children having famous parents:
“I think they’re interested in the same way all kids are interested in what their parents do, but it doesn’t come up. It affords them some fun experiences. They’ve seen hardly any of my movies, but they’ve been on almost every set.”
On the movie Noah:
“I would not want to be on a cruise ship. Some ferry crossings I’m not too thrilled about. But this is a very different circumstance. If it’s ‘get on the vessel or perish with the rest of humanity,’ I’d be happy to be invited aboard.”
Katie Holmes hasn’t been on a television series since the now-defunct WB11 drama, Dawson’s Creek, but that is going to change this fall!
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Holmes is slated to star in a untitled drama by Richard LaGravenese. The show is expected to air on ABC this fall.

Everything’s better in LEGO form.
Ellen DeGeneres’ Oscar selfie literally broke Twitter on Sunday. The viral photo even managed to garner $3 million in charity donations from Samsung.
LEGO introduced an adorable imitation of the photo (see below) on Tuesday, March 4, with each of the featured celebs in LEGO-form.
The company tweeted the photo with the caption, “The real #Oscars #selfie…sort of #Oscars2014 @ellenDegeneres.”
Though some of the LEGO people look a tad bit angry, it’s still a cute concept nonetheless.
