TREVOR NOAH ON HIS VISION FOR "DAILY SHOW"

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) -- Trevor Noah says "The Daily Show" will still take on politics and the media when he takes over. But he says it will be from his perspective, not that of Jon Stewart, the man he's replacing. For example, Noah notes that he and Stewart have different perspectives on race -- because Stewart is a middle-aged Jewish man from New Jersey while he's black, from South Africa -- and has only been in the U.S. for about five years. He says while Stewart would have to "empathize" about race relations, he comes from "a totally different place." Noah says the biggest pressure of taking on the Comedy Central job -- is living up to the expectations that Stewart has for him to do well. Noah begins his run on September 28.

SHAKIRA'S BABY

MIAMI (AP) -- Shakira's fans sure have gotten a kick out of her post that shows her new baby kicking a soccer ball. The co-judge on "The Voice" is seen on Twitter and Facebook holding her youngest son in front of a soccer ball and urging him to kick it. The baby, born in January, does -- and makes contact with the ball on his first try. The 12-second video attracted nearly 2 million views on Facebook in just an hour. The child's prowess with kicking should come as no surprise, though. Shakira is married to pro soccer star Gerard Pique.
