Gwen Stefani And Blake Shelton Announce Their Engagement

Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton announced their engagement Tuesday on social media with a photo of them sharing a kiss while Stefani showed off her ring.

Shelton, 44, captioned his Instagram post: “Hey, @gwenstefani thanks for saving my 2020… And the rest of my life. I love you. I heard a YES!” Stefani, 51, replied, “@blakeshelton yes please!”

Stefani and Shelton met in 2015 on the set of NBC’s reality-competition series The Voice, where they served as judges. Both had recently gone through divorces (Stefani split from Bush rocker Gavin Rossdale and Shelton from country singer Miranda Lambert). Stefani shares three sons with Rossdale: Kingston, 14; Zuma, 12; and Apollo, 6.  Shelton has no children of his own. 

Shelton and Stefani released “Nobody But You” off Shelton’s fifth compilation album Fully Loaded: God’s Country which scored him his 27th no. 1 country hit. They followed that up with “Happy Anywhere” in July, their fourth collaboration.

No wedding date has been announced as of press time.

Richard Pryor Biopic in the Works From ‘Black-ish’ Creator Kenya Barris

A new biopic about Richard Pryor is in the works at MGM with black-ish creator Kenya Barris writing and directing the film, in collaboration with the comedian’s widow, Jennifer Lee Pryor. The project was won by MGM after a bidding war between various studios, and Adam Rosenberg will serve as executive producer.

Before his death in 2005, Pryor starred in over 50 movies (including Blazing Saddles and Harlem Nights), wrote for TV shows like Sanford & Son, and had his own variety programs, The Richard Pryor Show and Pryor’s Place.  Pryor earned five Grammy’s, two American Academy of Humor awards, and the first ever Mark Twain Humor Prize award.

The Emmy-nominated Barris said in a statement about the project:  “The way Pryor did what he did — with truth and specificity that was somehow self-aware and self-deprecating, and said with an unmatched level of vulnerability — that was the power and impact of his work. Pryor had a voice that was distinctly his and, in many ways, comedy since then has been derivative of what he created. To me, this is a film about that voice, the journey that shaped it, and what it took for it to come to be.”

Lee Pryor added, “Having had a front-row seat to much of Richard’s life, I am excited that the mystery of his genius is finally going to be explored and Kenya Barris is the perfect person to do it. Richard and Kenya are creative brothers.”
