WILL SMITH'S DAUGHTER HAS TEN SNAKES SLEEPING IN HER ROOM AND SOME OF THEM ARE UNCAGED
The 13-year-old daughter of actors Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith is reportedly so obsessed with snakes she has as many as 10 as pets. And what's more, they sleep in her room and she even cuddles with them in bed, according to Us Weekly. “She has 10 sleeping in her room and some aren't in cages!” an insider reveals of the slithering reptiles. Willow Smith is said to have multiple slithery reptiles, and her brother Jaden Smith is said to be a fan of them too. The publication reports that Willow got her first boa constrictor back in 2008, when she was just seven years old. The female, named Beauty, became an instant hit with the whole family upon arrival, with mom Jada tellingÂ RedbookÂ during a July 2013 cover story that having the constrictor in the house helped cure her fear.
ADAM LEVINE SAYS THE VOICE "HAS GOT A WAYS TO GO" TO MATCH "AMERICAN IDOL," CITES "PROBLEMS" WITH SHOW
The VoiceÂ continues to be a hit for NBC, whileÂ American IdolÂ ratings are falling.Â But evenÂ VoiceÂ coachÂ Adam LevineÂ admits that his show hasn't come close to being the cultural juggernaut thatÂ IdolÂ has been for the past decade or so. Asked byÂ Rolling StoneÂ magazine if he's been surprised at the "decline" ofÂ American Idol,Â Adam replies, "IdolÂ has to be satisfied with what they've accomplished.Â Â The VoiceÂ is very successful, but it's got a ways to go if it wants to have as profound an impact asÂ Idol. I'm not going to lie to you: I think there are problems." Among those problems, says Adam, is the failure of the show's winners to become multi-platinum recording stars. "Millions of people watch the show every week and fall in love with a singer, then you don’t hear much from them," he tellsÂ Rolling Stone. Â "We haven’t had a breakout success, likeÂ Kelly ClarksonÂ orÂ Carrie Underwood."
