Today Christina aka Xtina’s new ablbum Lotus hits the shelves and Itunes. In her new album she features a duet performance with co-cost of The Voice, Blake Shelton. The song is called “Just a Fool”.

 

It’s hard to believe the two are so tight, it seems like the friendly banter on The Voice, is not so friendly banter. In a video previewing the song, Christina admits to being closer friends with Blake than any guy on the show. Who knew? Guess she wasn’t kidding since she invited him to sing a cross-over song on her new album. “Just a Fool” really shows off Blake’s vocal talent, his voice is smooth and covers a ton of range.

 

Way to go Blake!

Yesterday “page 6” of the New York Post reported that Taylor Swift and Tim Tebow were spotted on a date. The couple were actually amongst a group of friends while dinning. After dinner though, Tim was seen being quite the gentlemen by escorting Taylor to her car.

Does this mean Taylor and Tim are a couple? Almost everyone has an opinion about the possible blooming relationship. Both have a rare spotless reputation and both posses talent and success. If there were ever a Hollywood match made in heaven, this could be it.
