Pharrell to be on The Voice along with Gwen? NxD new manager

Friday, April 25th, 2014

Hello! In a new Billboard Magazine article, they state that Pharrell Williams may also be on season seven of The Voice. They also state that No Doubt has changed management. Here is the article:

“Gwen Stefani is being wooed by multiple suitors. According to sources, the No Doubt frontwoman, 44, was close to signing on as a judge for ABC’s summer singing competition “Rising Star” before choosing NBC’s “The Voice.”

Helping sway the singer’s vote? Mega manager Irving Azoff (Eagles, Van Halen, Chelsea Handler). He suggested Stefani replace another of his clients, Christina Aguilera, who will take a hiatus to have a baby. Although at press time the deal was not yet done, Stefani is expected to join Pharrell Williams, who takes Cee Lo Green’s chair, for season seven in the fall. “She’s a friend of the family,” Azoff tells Billboard of his relationship with Stefani.

The singer and her band No Doubt recently parted ways with Jim Guerinot, their manager since 1998. Stefani’s defection marks the second longtime client to leave Guerinot’s Rebel Waltz Management. Trent Reznor split in December to join John Silva’s Silva Artist Management. Azoff denies that he has taken Stefani on as a client, but insiders claim otherwise.

As for “Rising Star,” it too has had some commitment issues. (The show is produced by Dick Clark Productions, which is owned by Guggenheim Partners, the parent company of Billboard.) According to sources, rapper Pitbull and country star Luke Bryan have turned down the show’s judging invitation. “Rising Star” has now set its sights on Kesha and, with manager Scooter Braun (Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande) being considered for a mentor role. (Reps for Kesha and had no comment. A rep for Stefani could not be reached.)

A judging spot on a network hit can be hugely lucrative. Salaries range from $1 million per season, as Demi Lovato got her first year on Fox’s “The X Factor,” to upwards of $18 million, which was Mariah Carey’s salary on the 2013 edition of “American Idol.” Aguilera is believed to have recently been bumped up to $12 million a season on “The Voice.”

Stefani — who gave birth to her third child with Gavin Rossdale in February — would likely command a similar fee. And on the social front, Stefani — who has 1.15 million Twitter followers — starts ahead of Aguilera, who has more than 12 million followers, but sent her first-ever tweet on her “Voice” debut. The main network consideration, says one source, is “finding the pop artist that has the reach and social media following that can help draw in viewers.””

Hello! Happy Record Store Day! I hope everyone can get out and go support their local record store today!

According to a couple news sources, Gwen is going to be a judge on NBC’s The Voice! From this US Weekly article:

“Watch out boys! Gwen Stefani has signed on to join the judges’ panel on NBC’s The Voice, Us Weekly can confirm. A source tells Us the No Doubt lead singer’s “contract is now done.”

Stefani will fill a vacancy left by pregnant judge Christina Aguilera, during the reality series’ upcoming eighth season, which starts filming in June.

According to TMZ, which first broke the news Friday, producers began searching for Aguilera’s replacement after the “Your Body” singer announced her pregnancy back in February. TMZ added that the network wanted Aguilera to stay on during her pregnancy, but the “Fighter” singer has been struggling and opted out of the rotating seat.

Stefani is reportedly signed on for just one season. An NBC rep, when reached for comment earlier this week, told Us, “We haven’t made any decisions at this point.”

I hope this is true!
