Beyonce Celebrates Pregnancy with Star-Studded Push Party

Over the weekend Beyonce threw a star-studded bash celebrating the upcoming birth of her twins.
We still don't know the due date, but Matthew Knowles has reportedly said the babes are due in the next two weeks.
Looking at Beyonce's belly, we know it's coming up!
The mama-to-be looked fab in her African-inspired garb and intricate henna tattoo on her belly. She and husband, Jay Z, looked absolutely in love..making us forget how much we hated him when listening to Lemonade.

This is supposedly Beyonce's second baby shower.
What is a Push Party? Well, it's basically an alternative to a baby shower. Many women feel after having their first child, there's really no need for another baby shower...but , I feel they should always have one!
This bash definitely looked amazing.
When are these bey-baes coming!?!

Other stars in attendance were Serena Williams, who's expecting a baby of her own, Vanessa Bryant (Kobe's wife), Lala, Kelly Rowland, Michelle Williams, Lorraine Schwartz and many more.
Of course, mama Tina was in the house...she even did her own take of her older daughter's pic when she first revealed she was pregnant.
All guests had their own wraps and garb on while the African theme was all around them while music from late-Nigerian artist Fela Kuti played in the background.

Manchester Police Arrest 23 Year Old Connected to Ariana Grande Concert Explosion

Police have named 22 year old, Salman Abedi, as the one who detonated the explosive.  Authorities say Abedi is a British man of Libyan origin. ISIS has since claimed responsibility for the attack. Ariana Grande has suspended her world tour.
Such sad news, I still can't wrap my head around it.
Early Tuesday morning,  Greater Manchester Police confirmed they arrested a 23 year old connected to the bombing at the Ariana Grande concert.
22 people died and dozens were injured following an alleged suicide bomber at the Ariana Grande concert Monday night in Manchester.
As concert goers were leaving the show, an explosion was heard and madness ensued. It's being reported the lone attacker set off the explosive near the box office.
Regardless, of the 22 victims...many were children.
It sickens me that these young people just wanting to see their favorite pop star were witnesses to such a tragedy.
Since the explosion, Ariana took to twitter to express her condolences to the victims. I can't imagine, how as an artist, she feels about this.

Scooter Braun, Grande's manager issued the following statement on Twitter:

Since the attack, many celebs and musicians took to social media to express their condolences.

Prayers to those affected by this tragedy.

Katy Perry and Nicki Minaj Collab on "Swish Swish"

Instagram: @Katyperry

This new song for the KatyCats and Barbz has been giving me LIIIIIIFE all morning long.
The single dropped around midnight Friday for those who pre-ordered the Katy Perry's new album Witness . 
The duo teased the collab on social media and since the song's release everyone thinks Perry is targeting Taylor Swift while Nicki is obviously firing shots at Remy Ma....which I'm over.
Nicki, you lost boo...move on.

What do you guys think of the song?
Is this a pop-diss track?
Whatever it is, I'm a fan.

Nicki Minaj Pays for College for Fans Via Social Media

Instagram: @nickiminaj 
It all started around Saturday at midnight when Nicki was promoting her contest to bring a fan to the Billboard Music Awards, when one fan boldly asked for Minaj to just pay her tuition instead.
From that, Nicki was playing Oprah with you get tuition paid! You get your textbooks paid for!

The catch? Show the Young Money songstress your report card of straight A's and show that your school can back it up...and she'll pay for it!
She even offered to pay for an Audio Visual student's camera in Colombia!

Nicki throwing out money for the college education of her fans comes days after Queen Beyonce announced her "Formation Scholars" award to celebrate the year anniversary of her critically acclaimed film and album Lemonade. According to her website, "Four scholarships will be awarded, one per college, to female incoming, current or graduate students pursuing studies in creative arts, music, literature or African-American studies. The schools selected for participation are Berklee College of Music, Howard University, Parsons School of Design and Spelman College. All details and application deadlines are available directly from the colleges."

Kudos to these two strong women for giving back and lifting up their community.
