NBC says Gwen Stefani will be a coach on “The Voice” next season.

The network said Tuesday that Stefani will join Adam Levine, Blake Shelton and another previously announced new coach, Pharrell Williams, on the singing contest’s seventh edition. The two newcomers will drop by “The Voice” on Monday.

The network also says coach Christina Aguilera will return for Season 8.

Harry single again

British news media are reporting that Prince Harry and his girlfriend, Cressida Bonas, have split up.

Press Association cited an unidentified source as saying that Harry, 29, and Bonas, 25, had decided to end their two-year relationship. Other news media – including the BBC, the Daily Mail and The Sun – also reported the breakup, giving no sources.

Royal officials declined to comment.

This year, Harry shifted his military career from flying Apache helicopters to organizing army events as a staff officer, meaning he could see Bonas more often. Speculation about a possible engagement had been rife since Bonas and Harry appeared together at an official charity event in March.

‘Midnight’ stars

The lineup of pop stars keeps coming for new Tony Award-nominated “After Midnight.”

Producers of the show that celebrates Duke Ellington’s years at the Cotton Club say Patti LaBelle, Gladys Knight and Natalie Cole will take turns as special guest stars this summer.

LaBelle will play performances from June 10 to 29, Knight takes July 8 to Aug. 3 and Cole will appear from Aug. 5 to 31 at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre in New York.
