Celebrity marriages don’t last long. Well, at least a great number of them don’t. The reasons for this ‘phenomenon’ are various. The truth is that celebs lead pretty busy lives and follow hectic schedules, so they don’t often find the time to be around their families, which might be one of the reasons for the huge number of divorces among the elite.
Take Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes for example. At the time they started dating, all eyes were on them, but their union was short-lived.
When they divorced, the media reported that Holmes was awarded the custody of their daughter, Suri Cruise, and her father was allowed to see her ten days every month. To the surprise of the wide public, he chose not to.
The last photo of Tom Cruise and his daughter was taken back in 2012, and according to the media, he hasn’t seen her ever since. Rumors are he got estranged from Suri because she’s not part of the controversial church of Scientology. In fact, although she has never said it out loud, Holmes implied the church Cruise is heavily involved with was one of the reasons for the split.
With or without her father in her life, Suri turned into an amazing young girl. Her mom made sure to raise her right, and today, Suri is well-behaved and hard-working.
Recently, she stole the attention of many with her angelic voice. Namely, she did the cover of Frank Sinatra’s Blue Moon for the 2022 film Alone Together, which tells a story about two strangers embroiled in bad relationships who wind up in the same upstate New York Airbnb.
When thinking of who might do the vocals, Holmes, who is the director of the film, strived for perfection, and choosing her daughter, who is extremely talented, was a no-brainer. “She’s very talented. She said she would do it, and she recorded it, and I let her do her thing. That’s the way I direct in general. ‘This is what I think we all want, and then go do your thing,’” Holmes told
However, if you think Holmes is biased, she isn’t the only one who believes Suri did an awesome job. In fact, a huge number of people took their time to praise the young lady for the job well-done.
“She avoided the contemporary pitfalls of many who burden songs with countless scales sung throughout the song. Her voice sounded lovely and well trained, where it was not necessary to over-perform! It was a total pleasure to listen to a celebrity’s child who, after doing her homework, owns the spotlight! Bravo!” one person wrote.
“She sounds so wonderful and has so much control in her voice. I’m so impressed,” another person added.
One fan reacted to Suri’s singing by comparing it to singer, actress, and activist Doris Day, who began her career as a big band singer in 1939 and achieved commercial success in 1945.
Great job, Suri.
