Kylie Jenner Reportedly Pregnant

Okay, when People magazine is reporting this rumor...you KNOW it's got to be legit.
On Friday, the internet was set on fire as media outlet after media outlet reported the youngest of the Kardashian-Jenner family is pregnant.
The 20 year old, lip kit mogul, is reportedly pregnant with rapper Travis Scott's baby.
Scott and Jenner have been dating since Coachella in April of this year, not long after she broke up with long-term boyfriend, Tyga.
As you know, Blac Chyna, Tyga's ex and baby mama, has a child with Jenner's brother, Rob Kardashian Jr.
Tyga posted then deleted a snap claiming he is the father to Jenner's baby.

Kylie is reportedly due in February. Kylie's big sis Kim and her husband Kanye are expecting their third child via surrogate in January.
The internet was skeptical of this news as it broke, as the Keeping Up with the Kardashians 10 year anniversary special aired just days after.
Matriarch, Kris Jenner, didn't deny nor confirm the rumors when she spoke to The Cut.

Over the weekend Kylie ignored the rumors and took to social media showing her weekend with her friends as she celebrated, bestie, Jordyn Woods' birthday by even gifting her with a new car.
Kylie then joined her rumored baby daddy in Vegas while he performed at the I Heart Radio Music Festival.
Travis actually made a guest appearance as Hakkasan in Vegas, while I was there...however he didn't confirm any of the baby rumors.

I guess this gives us even more reasons to Keep Up with the Kardashians.

VH1 Hip Hop Honors Gave Me Life



A post shared by DA BRAT (@sosobrat) on

I'm a huge fan of hip-hop.

Yes, I know...you're all shocked.
On Monday night, VH1 had its annual Hip Hop Honors event and this year they focused on 90s game changers.

I'm an 80s baby and the 90s (especially mid to late) molded my musical tastes. VH1 tailored this show to all my peers and it gave me the ultimate life.
Like, I was in my feelings....MAJORLY.
The honorees were Mariah Carey, Jermaine Dupri, Martin Lawrence,  Master P and Hype Williams.
Mariah's collaborations with various rap artists merged pop and hip-hop beats for the greatest remixes and helping bring rap to the mainstream. I mean, if you didn't know who Ol' Dirty Bastar or ODB was...you did after you heard Fantasy
Jermaine Dupri's beats and artists on his SoSo Def label produces Xscape, Da Brat, Kriss Kross and helped Mariah get some of the best remixes.
Martin Lawrence's show Martin brought hip-hop to the mainstream by showcasing artists like Notorious BIG and Snoop Dogg to the small screen.
Master P gave the world the sound of the dirtay dirtay with his artists like Silkk the Shocker, Mystikal and giving us No Limit Records. He's still a business man, and now has his own basketball league.
Hype Williams, the OG of HOT music videos. He gave us California Love, Gold Digger, Woo Ha! and more. 


To start off the show, Missy Elliot killed the stage with She's a Bitch from her Hot Boy era and even brought back the old choreography and costumes from the video.


Then Trick Daddy, Trina, Romeo (formerly Lil Romeo), Silkk the Shocker and Xscape paid homage to the South....Get ready to DANCE!

The show couldn't go on without paying homage to the life of Prodigy from Mobb Deep who passed away this year with an awesome performance by Havoc, Lil Kim and Fabolous....BROOKLYN!


Everyone's favorite dancer and body-goal, Teyana Taylor, killed it with a 90s dance medley with her broken foot and everything and STILL killed it! We all remember when T slayed her Lil Kim performance last year. You can tell she really appreciates her hip-hop predecessors

Xscape, Warren G, Ty Dolla $ign, Remy Ma and Fat Joe performed some of the hottest party songs of the 90s with No Scrubs, Regulate and Still Not a Player.

Last, but definitely not least....Miss Mariah Carey killed it with her remixes to Honey...my FAVE of hers. With the So So Def and MYC remix featuring Jermain Dupri, Da Brat and the Lox and Ma$e.
Thank YOU VH1 for giving me the BEST hour of my life this week so far! We all needed this. EVERYONE NEEDS TO WATCH THESE!!

A bad weekend for funny man, Kevin Hart. A while back he was caught cheating, now it seems as those indiscretions are on-camera and he's being extorted.
There are reports that this isn't a sex tape, but something recorded in the sexual nature. 
Hart went to Instagram to apologize to his wife, children and fans. 
Hart's wife, Eniko Parrish, is currently pregnant with Hart's third child and her first.
Parrish and Hart tied the knot in 2016.
Hart has two kids with ex-wife Torrei Hart.
It has been said that Hart cheated on his ex-wife with his current one...and now this.
Wow.

Throwback Monday

                

 This week's throwback is to honor, Miss Mariah Carey. MC's Butterfly is celebrating its 20th anniversary and the legend is being honored at this evening's VH1 Hip Hop Honors for her many collaborations with hip-hop's finest.
The Butterfly album is one of my favorites, I loved Mariah's transformation. She had left her marriage and was finally embracing herself and her sexuality and she definietely grew as an artist. Of course, I loved all of the album's hip-hop influences as well.
Congrats Butterfly!
Enjoy some splashes on your anniversary.

Throwback Monday

       

As we remember the victims and the brave souls on the 16th anniversary of the September 11th attacks, this song comes to mind considering the world we're currently in.
May we never forget those on 9/11 and keep in our hearts those victims of Hurricane Harvey and Irma and everyone else.
