Kelly Rowland is officially six-months into her pregnancy and giving fans a good look at her glow. The Destiny’s Child alumna proudly posed with her bump while rocking a black bikini for a video. She also noted that she’s enjoying a babymoon with her hubby Tim Weatherspoon.

“6 MONTHS ALREADY!! This time passed SO FAST!!! I’m enjoying every moment! #2021👶🏾 #babymoon”

She also re-shared on her InstaStory a post of her hubby and their son Titan Jewell, 5, lounging in an infinity pool. Another video of Tim and Titan enjoying pool time on the babymoon was also shared on the toddler’s page.

As previously reported Kelly first revealed her pregnancy on the cover of Women’s Health.

She also detailed her pregnancy cravings that include lean food like sardines, egg whites, spinach, fruit, and oatmeal as well as something very specific; “a turkey sandwich with mustard and rye and sprouts and onion and sometimes a little avocado…”

Kelly also previously told Women’s Health that she conceived her child “right away” after trying with her husband during the pandemic…

“We had been talking about it loosely, and then COVID happened, and we were just like, ‘Let’s see what happens,’” Kelly says of how she and her husband, Tim Weatherspoon, decided to try expanding their family (their son, Titan, turns 6 in November).”

but admitted she was hesitant to share the big news with fans.

“In the midst of her gratitude, she confesses, she felt hesitant to make her joyful news public, with the pandemic, a racial reckoning, and a severe economic downturn roiling the country. She was even uncertain at first about sitting for this interview. “But you still want to remind people that life is important,” she says. “And being able to have a child…I’m knocking at 40’s door in February. Taking care of myself means a lot to me.”

Congrats again, Kelly! We wish her a healthy pregnancy.

This is Marsai Martin‘s world and we’re just happy to live in it!

The child superstar, who made her mark on history as the youngest executive producer ever, covers Essence for the publication’s first-ever Girls United digital cover. Inside, Martin talks diversity in Hollywood, living authentically as a young Black woman and creative, and rewriting the rules. “The talented @marsaimartin is positive proof that the teens of today are an inspiration to those humble and wise enough to note their influence. Proudly leading the pack, the young mogul has clearly figured out how to live large while living life on her own terms,” Essence said of the young black-ish icon.

Here are a few highlights from her cover story:

On Living Authentically: “I’m always myself…I’m in the space I’m in right now because I was just always unapologetically myself​…” 

On Inclusion In Hollywood: “It really sucks to say, but people are just now starting to understand that we as Black people have very creative minds and we won’t stop until we get there​…” 

On Pitching Her Film: “I really didn’t think of it as a nerve-wracking thing. Math equations scare me a lot more than public speaking​…”

Earlier this month, Martin attended and participated in the Essence Girls United Summit, which aims to “amplify and empower young Black women via impactful conversations and workshops — encouraging the next generation of activists, leaders and entrepreneurs.” In case you missed it, the 16-year-old actress taught a masterclass in self-empowerment, securing the bag, and more.

Below, the beauty thanks Essence and crew. Stay tuned to see what she has in store for us next. We stan the young queen.

Breonna Taylor will likely never get the justice that she so richly deserves. We hope we’re wrong about that but the way Amerikkka moral and legal standards are setup…we won’t be holding our breath.

Yesterday, Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly spoke to Michael Strahan for two whole-a$$ hours in an attempt to convince the public of how sorry he is and how much remorse he carries in his heart for her death. To that, we say remorse is not a consequence and sorry won’t bring an innocent, Black, essential worker back to life. According to ABCNews, Mattingly explained what he thinks would have kept Breonna alive and it’s absolutely infuriating.

“What would I have done differently, the answer to that is simple now that I’ve been thinking about it,” Mattingly said. “Number one, we would have either served the no-knock warrant or we would have done the normal thing we do, which is five to 10 seconds. To not give people time to formulate a plan, not give people time to get their senses so they have an idea of what they’re doing. Because if that had happened … Breonna Taylor would be alive, 100 percent.”

So, not the police actually doing their jobs competently and being at the correct address where the actual subject of the warrant was located? Not fully identifying themselves from the beginning? Neither would have prevented her death, huh? Aight.

Mattingly also attempts to eschew the notion that Breonna’s death is a Black Lives Matter issue by saying, “This is not relatable to George Floyd. It’s nothing like it. It’s not Ahmaud Arbery. It’s nothing like it. It’s not a race thing like people want to make it to be.”

Just because Mattingly and his porky pals didn’t call Breonna and Kenneth a bunch of n-words before the shooting started does not mean that race isn’t a factor in the refusal of the system to dole out justice to those who were treated unjustly.

The ceremony, delayed from April, will take place Wednesday at the BB&T Center in Sunrise, Florida. Gaby Espino will host.

City Girls’ Caresha recently celebrated her daughter Summer Miami’s 1st birthday, revealing she spent a whopping $70,000 for the occasion.

The rapper’s revelation seemed to come after defending herself on Twitter. We don’t know what prompted the tweets, but Caresha ranted about spending money on purses as she revealed what was dished out for her baby girl’s butterfly-themed soiree.

Wtf is 10-18k on a bag that ain’t sh*t summer birthday party was 70k

Summer Miami is one-years-old, yay! They celebrated the tot with a party full of activities including a painting and coloring station, a beautiful custom ball pit, professional photography, a designer cake, custom sweets, and stilt walkers.

Guests were greeted by giant butterflies and entered through a dream of white balloons according to the event planner responsible for putting together the celebration.

It’s possible that Summer’s superstar producer daddy Southside contributed to the party. No word if he actually foot the entire bill. Yung Miami has bragged about him putting her on private flights regularly and lacing her with designer purses in the past.

As a luxe touch, a custom ‘SUMMER’ sign with a butterfly pattern to match the theme was featured. You can swipe through to see all of the decor.

Summer’s daddy shared a photo of them in action at the painting station. Just recently, mom Caresha announced she and Southside had called it quits, declaring herself “single” in an Instagram post. Yung Miami and Southside, a popular rap producer, first shared their romance publicly in 2018. They welcomed their daughter in October of 2019. At the time, Miami didn’t mention the reason for the split but instead, shared a picture of herself partying on a yacht with her yams out to announce the news of her newfound single life.

Summer is Yung Miami’s second child. She has an older son named Jai from a previous relationship. The father of her son, Jai Wiggins, was killed back in June in a deadly shooting. 

In addition to celebrating her daughter’s big day, Caresha just dropped her new music video alongside City Girl member JT, DaBaby and Moneybagg Yo for the remix to his song “Said Sum.”

What does one do when one is rejected as the worst of one’s kind? Call on one’s friends, of course.

Actor Chris Pratt was voted the worst Chris in Hollywood when he went up against Chris Pine, Chris Hemsworth, and Chris Evans in an internet battle that has since gone viral. His wife and Marvel friends weren’t here for the internet’s shenanigans this week, however, so they pulled up to the conversation.

“Is this really what we need? There’s so much going on in the world and people struggling in so many ways. Being mean is so yesterday,” Pratt’s wife, Katherine Schwarzenegger, commented on an Instagram post according to Page Six. “There’s enough room to love all these guys. Love is what we all need not meanness and bullying. Let’s try that.”

“What a world… The ‘sinless’ are casting stones at my #brother, Chris Pratt… A real #Christian who lives by #principle, has never demonstrated anything but #positivity and #gratitude… AND he just married into a family that makes space for civil discourse and (just plain fact) INSISTS on service as the highest value,” Robert Downey Jr. wrote on Instagram. “If you take issue with Chris,,, I’ve got a novel idea. Delete your social media accounts, sit with your OWN defects of #character, work on THEM, then celebrate your humanness… @prattprattpratt I #gotyerbackbackback.”

Mark Ruffalo tweeted, “I know him personally, and instead of casting aspersions, look at how he lives his life. He is just not overtly political as a rule. This is a distraction. Let’s keep our eyes on the prize, friends. We are so close now.”

“‘No matter how hard it gets, stick your chest out, keep your head up and handle it.’ -Tupac. You got this @prattprattpratt. Your family, friends, colleagues & everyone who’s ever crossed paths with you knows your heart and your worth!,” Zoe Saldana tweeted.

Welp, there’s a saying amongst millennials and that saying is: the internet always wins. It’s no surprise that when his Marvel costars came to his defense, Twitter doubled down, continuing to call Pratt out for attending a homophobic church, being a Republican, and more. Fans also took issue with Marvel actors defending Chris in a popularity contest, arguing that only Don Cheadle defended Brie Larson when she received actual death threats. Oh, and of course, Zoe Saldana — who played Nina Simone, despite fans’ thoughts — received her fair share of vitriol.

See some stinging comments below and chime in with your two cents.

Sometimes you just need to let it all out – Stephen Colbert can attest. And what better time than while listening to Dolly Parton sing?

       

After the Spencer Davis Group disbanded in 1969, Davis launched a brief solo career, moving to California, before he later became a record executive.

       

After The Outfield, Lewis later went solo, dropping album “Out of the Darkness” in 2018. An “Unplugged – The Acoustic Sessions,” came out in May.
