Yesterday Barbados Prime Minister, Mia Mottley, named Rihanna as the 11th National Hero of Barbados. This is historic as she’s the first one named since 1998.

Rihanna was glowing in her copper gown in videos shared from the highly honorable event, but why would fans think she’s hiding a baby? One fan wrote, “Is that a baby bump?”

 

Photos of the 34-year-old beauty mogul yesterday immediately circulated on the internet, with fans questioning whether or not she was concealing a pregnant stomach under her dress.

The rumor has seemingly intensified even more after one verified Twitter account, The Academy, wrote without any further explanation, “Rihanna is pregnant with her first child with A$AP Rocky.”

The tweet, making the bold claim with zero sources behind it, has attracted over 20,000 retweets. The account’s tweet features a photo of both Rihanna and A$AP Rocky, insinuating that they are expecting a baby together as if it’s confirmed to be true.

This isn’t the first time a rumor that Rihanna is pregnant has hit their Internet. Back in 2019, images of the superstar went viral with fans convinced that she was carrying a child but it was quickly shut down after Rihanna fans realized it was untrue.

Rihanna actually addressed the rumor with EXTRA explaining why she understands the fascination with her ovaries but for now, there is literally nothing to be confirmed.

Mary J. Blige Dishes On Her Divorce, Daily Mantra & Self Acceptance With ELLE—‘I Didn’t Feel Beautiful–Until About 2016’

“During Mudbound and when I was married, I was feeling so low. I had to pay myself the highest compliments, even if I didn’t believe it, just so I could build myself up…”

 

Mary J. Blige might look like a strikingly confident superstar, but she’s admittedly struggled with self-acceptance. That’s the truth the Super Bowl headliner is sharing in ELLE’s February 2022 issue, on newsstands February 1.

For ELLE’s “State of Black Beauty” feature, the Hip-Hop icon opened up about her iconic platinum blonde hair, the inspiration behind her upcoming album Good Morning Gorgeous, and navigating self-acceptance through beauty.

In a vulnerable moment, MJB told ELLE’s Beauty E-Commerce Editor Nerisha Penrose that while she fully accepts herself now, she didn’t feel that way until six years ago.

“I didn’t feel beautiful,” said Mary J. Blige. “Llike for real for real, not just ‘Hey, I’m pretty’ but actually believing it—until about 2016.”

“When I shot Mudbound, I was at my point of no real confidence,” she added. Compliments from everyone on set helped build her self-image and forced her to readdress herself correctly. Every morning she would tell herself, “ ‘This chick is beautiful,’ ” she said.

“So I started to believe it and started to pay myself high compliments to get past that feeling and that fear.”

Wow!

Imagine being this gorgeous and not fully feeling like it for all of those years.

See more excerpts for Mary J. Blige’s ELLE magazine cover story below.

On why she felt uncomfortable in her own skin, attributing her discomfort to a mix of insecurities, including a childhood scar under her left eye and a tumultuous 13- year marriage to her ex-husband and former manager:

“If you’ve been beat down mentally by someone, you’re never pretty enough. You’re never smart enough. Nothing’s ever good enough.”

On how Salt-N-Pepa’s “Shake Your Thang” video inspired Blige’s now-iconic platinum hair:

“As a teenager, she was sitting watching television in the Schlobohm housing projects in Yonkers when Salt-N-Pepa’s “Shake Your Thang” video came on. Blige’s gaze drifted to their intricate blonde asymmetrical cuts. “When I saw Salt’s hair was platinum, it was done. Game over,” Blige says. “I used peroxide to lift my hair color all the way up to platinum [blonde],” she remembers fondly.”

On how reinvention has been her coping mechanism for escaping ‘hell’ and why she doesn’t think her hair gave her strength:

“It’s not just the hairstyles and the clothing and the skin. It’s how I reinvent myself through trials and perseverance. Am I going to quit? No, I’m going to go to the next level. It’s painful to go to the next level because change is hard. But people see me come out and they think, ‘It’s just her skin or her hair.’ No, it’s her. It’s me. I’m really choosing to be a better, stronger person,” she says. The looks are just a bonus. “I won’t say hair gave me strength. I’d say I give my hair strength. Whatever I’m wearing, I’m able to have the strength to carry it now, which I was not able to have in the last layer of my life. Hair is beautiful, but I can’t carry it with confidence if I’m not confident. Because then it’d just be a weave, or it’d just be blonde hair, or my [natural] hair.”

On performing for this year’s Pepsi Super Bowl LVI Halftime Show alongside Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, and Kendrick Lamar and how the all-star lineup of hip-hop heavyweights is also showing the genre’s versatility:

“Hip-hop is East Coast. Hip-hop is West Coast. Hip-hop is Europe—this is why it’s going to be so major, because this is what the Super Bowl is showing to people: It’s not just one thing. [Hip-hop] is everywhere.”

On her upcoming album Good Morning Gorgeous, which drops on 2/11 and how the title has become a daily mantra:

“During Mudbound and when I was married, I was feeling so low. I had to pay myself the highest compliments, even if I didn’t believe it, just so I could build myself up. I would do it in the morning, because that’s the time when your hair is not done and you don’t have on makeup. You’re just kind of dealing with yourself for real.” She still wakes up and recites the same words: “Good morning, Gorgeous. I love you. I got you. I need you.”

Melanie Ham: 5 Things To Know About YouTube Star Who Sadly Died At 36 After Cancer Battle

Published

Melanie Ham

YouTube star Melanie Ham passed away following a difficult cancer battle. Learn more about Melanie, who was described by her husband as ‘a warrior queen.’

A popular YouTube star has sadly passed away. Melanie Ham, 36, died earlier this month of cancer. Her husband, Robert, shared the devastating news via Instagram on January 12. “If you’ve been following our journey I’m sure you were, like us, hopeful she could defeat this insidious disease,” Robert wrote. “Over the past few months things have been progressively getting worse and we’re thankful that we made it to this point through the holidays and tried to make every moment count.” Robert went on to say that Melanie “fought like a warrior queen” throughout her cancer struggles.

As Melanie’s family, friends, and fans mourn the beloved internet personality, here’s what we know about Melanie.

Melanie had a massive YouTube following.

Melanie had over 800,000 subscribers on her YouTube channel when she died. Her videos, some of which got millions of views, date back as far as 10 years ago. On the “About Me” page on her website, Melanie said she started her YouTube channel in December 2011, “and it took off beyond my wildest dreams.”

Her videos involved sewing and crocheting.

Melanie’s YouTube videos involved sewing, crocheting and DIY tutorials. Her clips were typically between 5 and 15 minutes long. She would create quilts, headbands, masks, blankets, and more useful items via sewing and crocheting. Melanie’s final YouTube video was shared in April 2021, after which her health took a turn for the worse.

Melanie was married & had kids.

Melanie is survived by her husband Robert and their two children, one son and one daughter. When announcing Melanie’s passing, Robert revealed that he lost his wife just nine days before the pair’s 16th wedding anniversary. “Despite the deep grief my family and I feel today we want to celebrate an amazing woman and a life well-lived,” Robert said. “She loved passionately, created beautifully, provided abundantly and was my best friend all the way to the end.”

She was open about her cancer journey.

Melanie had a hard-fought cancer battle, and she was open with her fans every step of the way. She initially details her health struggles in a 2019 blog post, where she revealed that doctors discovered a mass on one of her kidneys in Dec. 2018. She got surgery that removed her left kidney, the mass and two lymph nodes. All seemed well, but in Aug. 2020, Melanie revealed that the cancerous mass had returned. She said in a YouTube video that “the tumor came back in multiple locations, very rapidly.” Melanie later revealed that her official diagnosis was Epithelioid Angiomyolipoma.

From there, Melanie continued to keep her fans updated as she fought the cancer. In an October 2021 update, she revealed she underwent surgery five months prior that was successful, but the cancer continued spreading. Melanie’s intense chemo caused her to lose her hair. “We’re always trying to stay optimistic that this will be the treatment that works, but the truth is there is no clear path on how to battle this,” she said in her final health update, “so we’re just gonna keep fighting.”

A Celebration of Life will be held for Melanie.

In the wake of Melanie’s passing, a Celebration of Life is planned for Saturday, January 29 at 11 a.m. at Crossroads Community Church in Valencia, California. A post from Melanie’s Instagram said that “colorful attire” is encouraged. Cards and flowers can also be sent to the church to honor Melanie. For fans that wish to participate, they can livestream the event at www.lifeatcrossroads.org/eventstream.

Raquel Leviss Says She & James Kennedy Weren’t Intimate for 2 Years Prior to Split as Pump Rules Stars Explain Breakup

Published

https://realityblurb.com/2021/12/04/gizelle-bryant-reveals-what-happened-with-nicki-minaj-after-rhop-reunion-talks-angry-wendy-and-her-dysfunctional-relationship-with-karen/

Raquel Leviss revealed some shocking information about her sex life with James Kennedy while discussing their split on Tuesday night’s first installment of the two-part Vanderpump Rules season nine reunion.

After shocking their cast mates with the news of their breakup, which happened just before the December taping, Lisa Vanderpump wanted to know what changed between the two of them in the months since they got engaged amid a massive Coachella-themed bash.

“We haven’t been having sex for a while,” Raquel shared on the January 25 episode.

“It’s been a while,” James agreed. “Through COVID we didn’t really [have sex].”

According to Raquel, she and James hadn’t had sex “since those rage texts that James sent” in 2019.

“That was two summers ago,” Scheana Shay noted of James’ angry texts to Raquel, which slammed her as a “who-re” and a “sl-t” as she enjoyed a night with friends.

Then, when host Andy Cohen asked the couple if they also failed to be intimate during their engagement in May 2021, James confirmed sex “was like a once-a-month type of thing” during the time they were intimate.

“We’d have our moments,” he acknowledged.

“When it happened we were passionate. We were in love with each other,” Raquel added.

Raquel explained that when it came to her split from James, she’d “been thinking about for a while.”

“I think that James has noticed that my heart hasn’t been fully in it,” she explained. “I didn’t want to give up on him because he really has shown me how dedicated he is to me and the things that he’s willing to do to better himself, but I feel like it’s something deep within.”

“I’ve been having nightmares about our wedding day,” she continued. “And I think that that’s like a tell-tell sign that something’s wrong.”

Although James said he was heartbroken over their breakup, he applauded Raquel for putting “it out all on the table.”

“I feel like after I quit drinking, I thought that would fix it. But it didn’t quite fix it all,” he revealed. “And we’d rather just end it and pull the bandaid off before we get married and have a baby and f-cking get a divorce because that’s literally the last thing I’d want.”

The second and final half of the Vanderpump Rules season nine reunion airs tonight, Wednesday, January 26, at 9/8c on Bravo.
