Throwback Monday


This week's throwback is to remember the great song that is One Sweet Day. As Lil Nas X's Old Town Road beat it at most weeks at number 1 on the billboard charts. Mariah and Boyz II Men's hit isn't the only song the kiddie trap-country fave beat out. It also beat out Despacito.

I feel it's unfair to compare Lil Nas X's song to Mariah's, because the way we consume music nowadays is so different. During the era of One Sweet Day, people had to physically go out and buy the record or call the radio station to request the song. In 2019, you have everything on your phone. Regardless, congrats Lil Nas.

DRAKEWATCH: Drake and Chris Brown Battle in Video for "No Guidance"

                             In 2012, Drizzy and Breezy infamously got into it at a nightclub. Fast-forward to 2019, the pair have collaborated on a hit slow jam record and are poking fun of the incident in a music video for the track. I love this song and the video made me LOL like 10 times.

What do you think?

Working On My Fitness: Operation Christine Kaurdashian Summer Body



Megan Thee Stallion declared Summer 2019, Hot Girl Summer, so I'm getting in formation and taking part.
Shout out to King Athletic for the hook-up to help get me started!
First and foremost their speed rope is the perfect workout accessory.  You can bust out 100 jump ropes along with some crunches and you've got a great warm-up or you can take it up a notch and get a good burner WOD (workout of the day). You can jump rope literally anywhere (well, be realistic). I'm a former Crossfitter and love a good set of double-unders to get my heart rate up even though sometimes my in-coordination causes the ropes to get caught in my hair.
The good thing about this brand, their blog has great training videos to help educate you on technique!

After watching Beychella, I was in awe of Beyonce's derriere. However ,I'm not as blessed. To get somewhat of a booty, these loop bands are my saving grace. I love to do hip-thrusts and squats with them. Want a harder workout? Use the blackish-grey!

Last but not least, the recovery.
I'm no spring chicken, so my body gets tight nowadays. To loosen up, I love these massage balls. I even keep one at work! I roll out my feet almost everyday. Sometimes, I get really spicy and use the balls to rollout my legs and shoulders to tighten knots and relieve tension. It's a great way to work that deep tissue. Another hack: Put the balls slightly in the microwave for a heated massage.

Head to King Athletic for all your fitness needs, and tell them Christine Kaurdashian sent ya! :)

Since tonight is the Met Gala, let's reminisce back to 2014 during the infamous "elevator incident" between Beyonce, Solange and Jay-Z. From that we were gifted with "Lemonade", "4:44", "Everything Is Love".
Thank you, Solange.
On that note, let's honor "Lemonade" with my fave single off the album:
Because I still haven't forgiven, Hov.

Jonas Brothers Are Back!


LADIES!!!
Your favorite sibling trio is BACK!

The Jonas Brothers!

Look, the JoBros are a little after my time, but I truly appreciate this pop-culture moment.
I also love the song AND THE VIDEO!
The video features each brother's significant other- yes, Priyanka is in it too.
It's like the 2006 Marie Antoinette movie meets  Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland but in England.
I'm here for it and glad the trio is back!

Jordyn Woods Breaks Silence & The Backash



This morning, people were glued to their Facebook feeds to hear Jordyn Woods (Kylie's ex-BFF) break her silence on what happened that February night when she allegedly hooked up with Tristan Thompson, Khloe Kardashian's baby-daddy.
Yes, Kylie's sister.
Woods went on Jada Pinkett-Smith's Red Table Talk to finally speak her truth.
Jordyn says she went out to the club, then went with her friends to a house party. That house party ended up being at Tristan's house.
Right off the bat... Jordyn says she's NEVER slept with Tristan. 
Jordyn now says, she shouldn't have gone over there as it wasn't appropriate.
She debunks the rumors that Thompson took everyone's cell phones at the party.
She denies that any lapdance took place, but did say while Tristan was sitting on a chair, she was sitting on that chair's arm with her legs on his. Okay, that's a little suspect. 
She says she and a friend stayed there until 7AM and said she needed to get home she is 21 BTW.
When she left to get into the car she called, Tristan kissed her.
He kissed her on the mouth.... no tongue... no passion. Woods says she talked to Khloe and Kylie later but never told them, admitting she omitted the information, which she now regrets.
In the interview Jordyn says she has tons of regrets:
  1. She should've told Khloe the FULL truth
  2. She shouldn't have gone to the party at Tristan's 
I believed Jordyn. She's known the Smiths for years, and they don't seem like the family who would let sh!t slide.
Well, moments after the interview aired... Khloe took to twitter to air her grievances

Of course, the internet dragged Khloe for continuously dragging Jordyn, but not holding Tristan accountable. Remember, Tristan's cheating caused Khloe to go into early labor in April... but we're just going to forget about that.
So this prompted Khloe to address THAT issue 

The family's makeup artist, Hrush took to twitter to slam Jordyn's interview:

 THEN.... later in the morning.... makeup artist/ cosmetics creator Jeffree Star took to his IG story to slam Jordy.... claiming everyone around Calabasas has seen Jordyn and Tristan canoodling and they've been an item for MONTHS:

So what do YOU think of all the drama? Do you believe Jordyn?

Keeping Up With Kylie, Khloe, Jordyn and Tristan

Image result for khloe and jordyn
UsWeekly

This.News.Had.Me.Shooketh.
This had me over the edge.
Like, I still can't believe this.
Jordyn had one job.... be Kylie's loyal friend and commit to the loyalty to continue to secure her bag. She threw it all away for TRISTAN THOMPSON.
Not Lebron....
Not Steph Curry....
Not Russel Westbrook...
TRISTAN THOMPSON.
For those who are still lost.
Kylie Jenner's BFF, Jordyn Woods is an aspiring (emphasis on aspiring) model and influencer.
Well, she got a little too comfortable and was seen canoodling with Cleveland Cavalier, Tristan Thompson.
Tristan is Khloe Kardashian's baby-daddy and on/off boyfriend.
Khloe and Kylie are sisters.
There you have it.
Reports say Jordyn is (rightly) distraught and keeps calling Khloe and Kylie and they're not having it.
Jordyn was considered a member of the family and they whole KarJenner clan is upset.
Jordyn was Kylie's ride-or-die and now the youngest of the family doesn't know what to do.
Meanwhile, Khloe broke up with Tristan... for the 238120981051 time... but who knows if those two will make amends.
A few days after the bombshell, Jordyn made an appearance at her false lash line release party, Eylure Jordyn Woods Summer Heir, making a small remark about the drama.

 This story is so unreal to me.
Like, I can't believe Jordyn would get caught up with that loser.
I guess we're going to have to watch this unfold on KUWTK, but it's a little too quiet on the KarJenner front.
All the sisters have unfollowed Jordyn on the 'gram.
Kylie's collab with her ex-BFF is still for sale at regular price, but the Jordy lipkit was marked down and has since soldout.
Jordyn was a model for Khloe's Good American denim line, but reports say she's since been removed.
Best of luck in life, Jordyn.
These memes about the situation have given me LIFE. 

R. Kelly Remains In Jail; Unable to Make Bail

Chicago Police Dept.
Cook County had their hands full this week. 
R. Kelly is still in jail.
Yesterday, a judge granted Kelly's bond at one million dollars and he's not able to pay the $100,000. So, he's still in the clink.
On Friday, Chicago prosecutors indicted the singer on 10 counts of aggravated assault on four victims. Three of them were allegedly underage during the encounters.
Lawyer Michael Avenatti says last week he obtained a tape that shows Kelly having sex with an underage girl. That tape was handed over to the authorities, hence why the charges came down on the R&B singer.
But his problems don't stop there.
Kelly allegedly owes about $169K in unpaid child support.
The indictment comes after decades of accusations of sexual misconduct with underage girls and women.
It will be interesting to see how this will turn out as well.
Will Joycelyn Savage and Dominique Gardner return to their families?
Will he finally be locked up for good, essentially permanently muting the singer?
In the past 8 years or so, people have been calling for R. Kelly's day in court and his karma, it looks like it's finally arrived. 

Jussie Smollet's Saga

Chicago Police Dept.



This past week was FULL of celebrity news.
I didn't even know where to start nor did I know how to even tackle this.
But let's start with Jussie Smollett.
Late last month, the Empire actor claimed he was beaten by two men wearing MAGA hats while they yelled racial and homophobic remarks at the actors... then poured a strange liquid on him and tied a noose around his neck.
Well, fast forward to this past week.
Chicago police say Smollett fabricated the entire thing.
He paid an extra in Empire along with his brother $3500 with.a.check (yes, he had a paper trail).  Surveillance video also surfaced of the two men buying the rope from the local hardware store.
Also, the two men told the cops.
Police say Smollett did this because he was dissatisfied with his salary on Empire.
Smollett eventually made bail, then rushed to the set of the Fox hit, to convince his costars he was telling the truth. 
Welp, the executive producers of the show say Smollett will NOT be appearing in the final two episodes of the next season.
TMZ says Smollett hired one of the brothers to help him get in shape for an upcoming music video. Though that doesn't prove he didn't do it, it could provide reasonable doubt in court.
This was so mind-blowing to me because so many Hollywood heavyweights rallied around Smollett... only to be hoodwinked.
I'm sure in less than a year Smollett will be on a VH1 reality show about needing some kind of rehab or he'll do a special with Iyanla or Dr. Drew. #bet.

I know, the Super Bowl and the NFL has been a source of contention right now.
But if it were up to me, this would've been my choice.
