Missy Elliott: Graves' disease didn't slow me down

If you haven’t seen Missy Elliott out and about over the past three years, it’s because you didn’t know where to look.

The hip-hop artist has released a statement clarifying that while she does suffer from the autoimmune disorder Graves' disease, it didn’t cause her to press pause on her career.

Elliott reveled earlier that she was diagnosed with the disease, which affects the thyroid, in 2008, and saw it impact her motor skills and lead to hair loss, bulging eyes, a rapid heart rate and dizzy spells.

'The Voice' has invaded Carson Daly's dreams

No doubt “The Voice” has become a dream come true for NBC execs, but host Carson Daly says he had doubts it’d become such a bonafide hit.

“When NBC pitched the idea to me… It just didn’t sound like my sort of thing,” he tells Vanity Fair. “I know that reality TV has definitely evolved and become more interesting over the last few years, but I was still reluctant. And then I watched the original Dutch version, and yadda yadda yadda, I just fell in love with the format.”

And these days, as “The Voice” winds down to its finale next week, Daly is even dreaming up ways to turn it into another franchise.

The White House may have shut down "The Colbert Report's" plan to air a naturalization ceremony next week, but Stephen Colbert hasn't lost his singing spirit.

The late night host has spent the week rocking out with what he’s called Stephest Colbchella, and if you tuned into Colbert’s Comedy Central show on Thursday you got a taste of his performance of “Charlene II (I'm Over You),” backed by The Black Belles.

He could've left it at that, but Colbert is bringing his music to the masses and has become a recording artist with Jack White’s Third Man Records.
