Drake's New "Nice For What" New Ladies' Anthem

                              I cannot scream YAAASSSS enough to this single, this video, this beat..EVERYTHING! Drizzy dropped the banger on Friday night and it's amazing.
The way Lauryn Hill's Ex-Factor is sampled on this track and the message Drake sends with the Nice for what, for these ____ is everything.
The female empowerment gave me all kinds of feels.
Directed by Karena Evans, who's only 22...this video is great!
Watching Yara kill is wearing her Harvard hoodie.
Issa Rae controlling a boardroom full of older-typical-execs.
Tracee still looking great.
Olivia Wilde stuntin'
Misty Copeland's graceful ballet moves.
Zoe Saldana with her kids.
This video is an anthem for all women.
This is what WE need during the ongoing #MeToo and #TimesUp movements.
We're women...we're strong...powerful...we don't need these f$%kboys....we don't need to be nice.
My favorite line is:
That's a real one in your reflection..
without a follow...
with a mention...
Drizzy, thank you!!  

Throwback Monday

                        Want to feel old? Lady Gaga's first hit single Just Dance turned 10 years old this weekend.
Yes, I know....
*Sings You're Welcome*
The hit single was most of our first introduction to Gaga, which later we became her monsters and she our mother.
Gaga's grown quite a bit in this decade.
As for Akon and Colby O'Donis.....IDK.  
I was drawn to Lady Gaga immediately because of her avant-garde look and she reminded me of my childhood idol, Jem.

Here's to another decade of Gaga and being her monsters.

Today, actress Cynthia Nixon of Sex and the City fame announced she's running for governor of New York.
She posted the video below on social media.
She captioned the video with:
 I grew up in a one-bedroom fifth floor walk-up, just me and my mom. I’ve spent my whole life in New York -- this is where I met my wife, where I’m raising my kids, where I’ve fought for 17 years for better schools, better health care, and LGBTQ equality. I love New Yorkers, and I believe in us. We can make this state better for all our kids (and all our grown-ups, too!). We can take on the corruption and dysfunction in Albany and fix these problems ourselves. Will you join me?

51 year old Nixon has put her hat in the ring and w\ill run against Gov. Andrew Cuomo in the Democratic primary.
The race will take place on November 6th, 2018.

Khloe Kardashian Celebrates Baby Thompson

Instagram: @KhloeKardashian

Over the weekend, Khloe Kardashian celebrated the upcoming birth of her baby girl with Cleveland Cavs' Tristan Thompson.
Of course, the decor was divine!
And it isn't a KarJenner party without a flower wall and a builtin photoshop photobooth! Peep the pics below.
Jeff Leatham and Mindy Weiss put together the pink and PINK affair.
Khlo partnered with Amazon to put on the bash.
Notice the Baby Thompson sign? That's Kris Jenner's handwriting!
It kind of gives me Betsey Johnson vibes.

Somehow Kim Zolciak-Biermann and daughter Brielle got their way in there.  *Kanye shrug*

Beyonce and Jay-Z Going on Tour Together

Instagram: @beyonce

Wait what?
*clutches pearls*
While I'm trying to make a living and do my day job, I was inundated with texts, Instagram DMs and articles alluding to Beyonce and Jay-Z going on tour together.
Yes, it's being dubbed On the Run 2!
So, the internet is saying Beyonce's Facebook peeps goofed up and accidentally put out an announcement for OTR2, but then promptly took it down.
Now, we know the Carters must have something in the works as Bey is about to do Coachella, they just dropped Top Off with Future and Khaled. 
But another OTR? I'd be down.

Now excuse me while I pick up another job....or 3 to get these coins together.
SMDH, regardless of this mistake the Carters are basically telling us to get in formation.

Kylie Jenner Confirms Pregnancy and Gives Birth to Baby Girl

We knew it.
They knew we knew.
But no one would spill the beans.
...until Super Bowl Sunday!!!
In a post via social media, because where else?
Kylie came from out of hiding and posted a message to her fans along with a video on YouTube revealing that she was indeed pregnant AND already had the baby earlier in the week.
She wrote:
I'm sorry for keeping you in the dark through all the assumptions. I understand you're used to me bringing you along on all my journeys. My pregnancy was one I chose not to do in front of the world. I knew for myself I needed to prepare for this role of a lifetime in the most positive, stress free, and healthy way I knew how. There was no gotcha moment, no big paid reveal I had planned. I knew my baby would feel every stress and every emotion so I chose to do it this way for my little life and our happiness.

The 11 1/2 minute video titled "To Our Daughter"  chronicles Kylie's relationship with rapper Travis $cott, first narrated by her BFF Jordyn Woods. The video contains interviews with her friends and family. Jenner started dating the Goosebumps singer around April 2017....kind of around Coachella.
Beware, this video gives you all the feels!

Even little Chicago West made a debut! Baby Chi and Kylie's babe are 2 weeks apart, and with Khloe being due in April, there's no doubt these little baby will be tight with her two cousins.
We still do not know the baby's name, but we do know her birthday and that she weighed 8lb 9oz.

Scott also took to the internet to post about his baby girl.
Back in September 2017, right before Labor Day weekend, the internet was abuzz that the youngest KarJenner was expecting. Then, a few weeks later it was rumored that big sis Khloe was as well.
In December, Khloe announced to the world that the rumors were true...on her end. However, there was still nothing from Kylie.
There was the Christmas card....still nothing.
The Keeping up with the Kardashians season premiere....still nothing
Some wondered if Kylie will just come out of hiding after the baby was born, and they were right.

Last but not least, Caitlyn Jenner took to Instagram to post a heartfelt message about her newest granddaughter.
Congrats, Kylie and Travis.
Wishing you all the best! xoxo

Throwback Monday

           On Super Bowl Sunday, some on the internet declared the day as Janet Jackson Appreciation Day following her announcement on social media that she wouln't be performing alongside Justin Timberlake during his halftime performance.
Yes, I did watch JT's performance and I did enjoy it. Could he have done more? Sure! Should he have brought Janet out? YES! So, here's a JDJ classic we can call enjoy.

Kim Kardashian West Posts NSFW Photos and Lindsay Lohan Feels a Type of Way

Instagram: @KimKardashianWest 

On Monday afternoon Kim Kardashian West went on a photo-posting spree on Instagram with a bevy of photos of her sporting a g-string, white Henley, beaded braids and a flawlessly made up face.
Kim teased the shoot a few days earlier on Snapchat with a racy photo that's similar to the one above.

Okay, Kim we get it!
You look great and we all want to hire Melissa as our trainer! But I totally don't get what these photos are for and why she's in a basic AF bedroom.

Judging by those tagged in this shoot, these aren't basic Polaroids during a raunchy weekend in a motel.
Before we get into the shoot, a couple things got the internet upset over these photos...and it wasn't because of lack of clothing.

Some felt by Kim saying the braids were paying homage to 70's actress Bo Derek is incorrect. Critics say these are actually cornrows and that hairstyle has been around for YEARS before Derek debuted them in the 70's film 10.
Actually, back in 2015 Derek came to the rescue to fellow KarJenner sister, Kylie, who sported cornrows and was accused of cultural-appropriation. To that, Derek claimed it was stupid and it's just a hairdo. But is it though!?

Others say these are in fact, African braids called Fulani braids.
The hairstyle has been popular among Fulani people in West Africa and East Africa for centuries.

If that wasn't enough, when Perez Hilton posted a photo of Kim's selfie donning the braids, Lindsay Lohan claimed her look was confusing, to which KKW clapped back.....hard by commenting, "you know whats confusing...your sudden foreign accent."
The internet and even Perez DIED at the exchange. 

Peep the other photos Kim bombarded us with on Instagram on Monday afternoon. I can't hate, her body does look amazing....but the poses and what-not.....make me....uncomfortable. Maybe it will all make sense once we see the shoot.

Justin Timberlake is "Filthy" in 2018

Dressed like Steve Jobs and announcing a dancing robot, that looks like Will Smith's iRobot, JT is bringing Filthy back in this Mark Romanek directed video.
Filthy is Timberlake's first single and music video off of his new album Man of the Woods. In the promos to the video, the Sexyback singer advises "this song should be played very loud."

A post shared by Justin Timberlake (@justintimberlake) on
Earlier this year, week, Timberlake announced new music to come via Instagram. His wife, Jessica Biel, commented that it's "an opus of epic proportions. So proud."
A post shared by Justin Timberlake (@justintimberlake) on
About time Timberlake gives us new music.
A post shared by Justin Timberlake (@justintimberlake) on
When he finally returned to music in 2013 he gave us the 20/20 Experience with a corresponding LP came out later that year.
So, we've been almost 5 years without new music from the former *NSYNC-er, and with him performing at this year's Super Bowl Half-Time show, we NEEDED new material.
Timberlake released the track list to MOW and I cannot wait to hear more!

Throwback Monday

                    Happy 2018 everyone! I apologize for being M.I.A over the blog, but due to the holidays and me being out of town, I needed time to relax. However, now I've been hit with a nasty cold that had me inside with mama and papa Kaurdashian on New Year's Eve! The plus side? I got to hang out with Britney and Mariah. Seeing Mariah totally redeem herself on Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve was a site to kick-off 2018. It's only fitting to honor M.C for today's throwback.
Happy New Year to you and yours  and here's to another year of pop-culture and celebrity madness. As always, thanks for being a part of this journey.
