After suffering a fatal heart attack, DMX has passed away, leaving behind a devasted family – including ex-wife, Tashera Simmons.

“We are deeply saddened to announce today that our loved one, DMX, birth name of Earl Simmons, passed away at 50 years old at White Plains Hospital with his family by his side after being placed on life support for the past few days,” the statement issued on Friday (Apr. 9) reads. The tragic news came a week after DMX suffered a fatal heart attack and was left in a “vegetative state.” Millions prayed for his recovery, including his ex-wife, Tashera Simmons.

Shortly after DMX was hospitalized, Tashera uploaded a video of fans playing his music outside the White Plains, NY hospital, where he was being treated. “The love is real,” she captioned the IG Story, per The Jasmine Brand. “This just touched my heart.” Sadly, the rap icon would not recover, leaving his family and fans in mourning. As the world reflects on the loss of one of the genre’s most distinct voices, here’s what you need to know about DMX’s ex-wife.

1.Where Is Tashera Simmons From?

Tashera Jamilla Draughn was “born in New York, New York April 10, 1971, and is the eldest of 8 children,” according to her official website. In 978, her “Panamanian born mother and Brooklyn born father” relocated the family out of New York – which was plagued with crime, fires, and economic strife – to the neighborhood of Yonkers. Despite the move, her parents still struggled with stress and drugs, resulting in Tashera and her siblings being “abandoned.” Tashera stepped up to “become the maternal figure,” per her website, resulting in her working odd jobs to support everyone.

2.When Did DMX & Tashera Simmons Meet?

After dropping out of high school, she began dating a childhood friend: Earl Simmons, the man who would later achieve fame and success under the name DMX. “One day after work, one of my very good girlfriends…and I went out to a lounge called Arthur’s,” she wrote in her memoir, You Think You Know. You Have No Idea. “At this time, I was only eighteen. I didn’t drink, so I grabbed a soda from the bar…My sister’s baby father walked up to me and said, ‘My man wants to meet you.’” That man was DMX, but Tashera recognized him as Earl, and he remembered her from when she was a kid.

“After that day, he would call me and beep me throughout the day,” she wrote, adding that she played hard to get and refused to return his calls. A chance meeting at a party sealed their romance not with a kiss but with a diss.

DMX was playing a party at the Brown Eyes lounge. Tashera and her friends arrived, just for him to surprise her. “I’m about to sing this next song that’s dedicated to someone in her called ‘Once Upon a Time,’” he said, per her memoir. From there, he rapped, “ ‘Once upon a time, I knew a girl named Tashera that was fronting / so she didn’t know the person in the mo=irror / Like one night if her period wasn’t on she would of f-cked me / then she spent whole next week trying to duck me.’” Though she first felt humiliated, DMX’s song led Tashera to confront her feelings about him – and it turns out, she felt some true love.

3.When Did Tashera And DMX Get Married?

The couple tied the knot in late 1998, according to her website. At the time, DMX was one of the biggest rappers in the world. His first two records – It’s Dark and Hell Is Hot and Flesh of My Flesh, Blood Of My Blood – were both released in 1998, and singles from the two albums (“Ruff Ryders Anthem,” “How’s It Goin’ Down,” “Slippin,”) were chatting hits. On Dec. 21, 1999, DMX dropped ….And Then There Was X, featuring “Party Up (Up In Here),” “What’s My Name?” and more. It seemed everything was going well for X and Tashera, but things weren’t always what they seemed.

“Marriage is complicated, and it’s even harder under the scrutiny of flashing camera lights, the media, and fans,” she posted to her website. “Faith kept me by my husband’s side every step of the way, and it has also changed me. As a celebrity wife, it is easy to become enthralled by the glitz and glamour and get lost in the entrapments of fame. Success has afforded us the best of everything. However, along with the wealth came the struggles.”

“The relationship we once shared quietly became a public spectacle,” she wrote. “The exposure started to become overwhelming as I desperately searched for any semblance of normalcy. My desire was to get away from the judgments, criticism, and harassment. It was like watching our lives on the big screen, unable to predict the next scene. As Earl’s popularity increased, tribulations escalated.”

4.When Did Tashera And DMX Get Divorced?

In 2005, amid DMX’s multiple arrests, prison stints, and drug issues, he and Tashera became estranged. The two took part in VH1’s Couples Rehab to help salvage their union. It didn’t help. She filed for divorce in 2012.

“To be honest with you, I’m not perfect. But overall, when I really look back, I wouldn’t change a thing,” she told Essence in 2012. “As far as when you say ‘mistakes’ in our marriage, I know that the mistake I made, as a woman, was that I sacrificed too much of myself in that relationship. I just felt like it went unnoticed. But I would do it again because me and X started when we were 18 years old, so it’s really like we have 24 years together. I learned so much [from] my journey with him, so I wouldn’t change that.”

“I do still feel bad about getting a divorce, even after everything X put me through because I took my vows very seriously,” she added. “But [there] just comes a time when you give your all, and you know you gave your all, and it’s just time to move on. …Regardless of what was going on, I still stayed loyal and faithful to my marriage. That’s why I can move on and feel really good right now because I know I gave my all to this marriage.” The couple finalized the split in 2014.

5.Do Tashera And DMX Have Any Kids Together?

Tashera wrote about her experiences in her memoir. She formed the Freedom of Truth foundation in 2010 “with the purpose of being a source of inspiration for women all over the world,” and the foundation helps poverty-stricken single parents.

Tashera and DMX had four children together — Xavier, Tacoma, Praise Mary Ella, and Sean. However, those are not the only children DMX has. His multiple extramarital affairs produced numerous offspring. He had 15 children in total.

2. The pair were engaged for two years. 

The hip hop icon proposed to his then-girlfriend at their son’s third birthday party — and of course, she said yes. At the time of his passing, the pair had been together for more than eight years, and engaged for two of them.

Desiree’s Instagram feed is full of happy snaps featuring her musician hubby and their adorable son. She even posted a sweet tribute to her man on his 50th birthday in 2020. “SCREAMING HAPPY BIRTHDAY…to my friend, my baby zaddy lol, my FIANCÉ! I love u to the moon and back,” she began. “I know u love me too, to the moon and back regardless of what anybody thinks! This year has been full of surprises some good and some bad but hey it’s nothing that we can’t get through together as a couple, as a family!” Desiree added, “I appreciate the type of father u are to exodus everybody sees a difference in u when it comes to that! The promises u made me about that u keep no matter what!”

Just two days before he suffered a heart attack, Desiree shared a sweet video of the rapper singing and dancing along to a song in the car. “He talking about record us rocking lol he too funny!!!” she captioned the candid clip.

5. She vehemently defended their relationship.

Desiree previously shut down detractors who criticised her relationship with the father of 15. “People will never understand or get our relationship but guess what… f**k them!” she wrote in a 2020 IG post. “We know we love each other, we both are not perfect by any means but we know were we stand with each other! I love u baby!”

‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Recap: Meredith Wakes Up & Leaves The Beach Behind

‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Recap: Meredith Wakes Up & Leaves The Beach Behind

After reuniting with old friends on the beach, Meredith left it all behind and finally woke up during the April 8 episode of ‘Grey’s Anatomy.’

Teddy is still checking in on Meredith, even though she’s still on leave. Richard tells her to get off the phone and spend time with her kids. Richard has it handled.

Link and Amelia get the surprise of their lives. Link’s parents show up in a camper. Link is initially worried about COVID, but his parents stress they had their 2-week quarantine on the way to his place. They want to take the kids to Mt. Rainier and give Link and Amelia some time off.

They don’t know what to do with their time. Link thinks they can do anything, even have sex! Suddenly, Amelia is overcome with emotions and she’s crying. She hasn’t had any chance to just cry it out amidst taking care of the kids and Meredith’s situation.

While they have the chance, Amelia and Link talk about a lot of things. They discuss marriage, and Amelia is brutally honest about the fact that she’s been thinking about getting high lately. After a quick nap (to deal with the stress), Link confronts the conversation head-on. He listens as Amelia talks about what she’s feeling. She admits that she doesn’t want to do pills. She just wants to buy some weed and smoke it.

No matter what, Link wants to marry Amelia. He tries to propose again, and she stops him before he gets too far. She doesn’t want him to pop the question while she’s confessing her darkest secrets.

Link tells Amelia that he’s not Owen, and he needs her to not get high. Amelia agrees to not get high if Link doesn’t propose in a semi-compulsory manner. They strike a deal. Link still wants to marry Amelia, but he’ll wait for the perfect moment.

Meredith wakes up after her time at the beach, and Richard is by her side. “I’m sorry,” Meredith says. She apologizes to Richard for having to make that call to put her on the ventilator. He’d do it again if he had to, but he hopes he won’t. “I’m glad I chose you,” Meredith tells him. Even though she’s been in a coma, Meredith has been able to hear some of the words said to her. “We need to talk about Wilson,” she says to Richard about Jo.

Richard follows Meredith’s lead and goes to Jo about changing specialties. Amelia and Link agree to do a check-in every few weeks to make sure they’re still good with everything.

Owen shows up at Teddy’s place. He knows now that she tried telling him the truth about Allison, but he was “awful” to her. He apologizes for how he’s treated her. No matter what, Teddy has always been there for him. He wants to be her friend. He doesn’t know that he has more to give her now, but he wants to hear about Allison.

Richard watches over Meredith as she sleeps. Maggie and Bailey join him. Richard notes that Meredith may be going through hell, but she’s listening, even when you think she’s not. She’s the extraordinary, unstoppable Meredith Grey.

In a sweet photo from her father’s memorial, Teresa Giudice wrote her four daughters are ‘what get’ her ‘through.’

Teresa Giudice, 48, and her daughters Gia, 20, Gabriella, 16, Milania, 15, and Audriana, 11, looked so gorgeous in her latest Instagram photo! The five women all matched in white outfits in the snap from Giacinto Gorga‘s memorial service, which was featured on the most recent episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey. “they are what get me through #luckiestmomintheworld,” Teresa captioned the sweet photo, posted on Thursday, April 8.

The mom-of-four looked like a goddess in a stunning white mesh gown from contemporary label PatBO. The dress featured a summer-ready spaghetti strap, slit and deep plunge, along with an asymmetrical tiered skirt and sash. She accessorized with Cartier’s white gold “Just Un Clou” diamond bracelet, a white Hermes clic clac bangle, layered gold necklaces and a strappy sandal. Her eldest daughter Gia sported a ruched mini dress along wit her signature Cartier gold LOVE bracelet.

Teresa sadly lost her father, whom she had an extremely close relationship, in April 2020. Giacinto was 76 years old at the time of his passing, and had been battling persistent health problems — one of which lead to him being hospitalized in Jan. 2020. Shortly after his death, the reality star posted an emotional tribute to social media. “My father, my protector, my hero, God took you early this morning to be with mommy, I saw you peacefully pass & I know you kept fighting for my daughters and I,” she wrote. “I have so many amazing thoughts of you, every day seeing you in the kitchen at my home, teaching my girls to cook, my partner in my crime on shopping trips, your love of the shore, and my travel buddy,” the New Jersey native penned, thanking him for being “the best husband, father and Nonno.”

The memorial was front and center on last nights’ episode of RHONJ. Teresa’s brother Joe Gorga‘s ended up having an argument with wife Melissa Gorga after he said she’s “changed” so much since they married. Joe went on to explain he wanted her to be a stay-at-home mom but said they’re “growing apart” as she has pivoted to becoming a businesswoman. Melissa retorted by calling Joe “spoiled,” but they were able to move beyond the fight for the memorial service.

Khloe Kardashian Vents Her ‘Anger & Frustration’ At The Gym After Unedited Bikini Pic Scandal

Khloe Kardashian is taking out her anger at an unedited and unfiltered bikini photo surfacing on social media by hitting the gym for a powerful workout.

Khloe Kardashian is still majorly pissed off that a photo of her in a bikini that hadn’t been heavily edited or airbrushed blew up all over the internet this week. Khloe looked so great in the completely natural snapshot taken over Easter weekend. But she is still apparently “mad” and “angry” about it, and hitting her home gym to release her negative feelings and get a powerful workout in during the process.

In an Apr. 8 Instagram stories selfie video, Khloe could be seen in a black sports bra top and leggings. Her bare ab muscles looked totally chiseled, as she spoke with determination in her voice. “Therapy time! So this is my therapy. And I don’t think anyone works out better and stronger than someone that’s frustrated, angry, mad, determined. Let it all out in the gym and that’s what I’m about to do,” she told fans while standing amongst her weights and equipment.

It comes a day after Khloe literally stripped down to her underwear to show off a home video of herself and how great her body looks.  She stood in front of a mirror with her arm over her breasts, turning to the side to show off the rippling muscles on her abs and her toned derriere. Khloe even hopped up and down a few times to show that absolutely nothing on her body moves or does any jiggling.

The 36-year-old apparently thought that racy video wasn’t enough to prove her body is perfect. She then showed another video taken during an Instagram live where she took off her sweatshirt to reveal her toned torso in just a bra, while pulling her sweatpants down past her hips to again show how firm and tight her body is. She made it a point to say how she did it “live” to prove that her body wasn’t “Photoshopped.”

Over Easter weekend, an assistant accidentally posted a photo of Khloe in a tiny leopard print bikini standing next to the pool at her mom Kris Jenner’s La Quinta, CA estate. But unlike the swimsuit photos she posts of herself, it didn’t have extensive editing, filtering, airbrushing and other techniques to make her body literally appear completely perfect and flawless. Instead, Khloe appeared to be a stunning MILF with a killer body that might actually be attainable by mere mortals with the level of strict diet and exercise the mother of one puts in.

Khloe immediately wanted the photo removed from the internet. “The color edited photo was taken of Khloé during a private family gathering and posted to social media without permission by mistake by an assistant,” Tracy Romulus, chief marketing officer for KKW Brands, said in a statement to Page Six. She added that “Khloé looks beautiful but it is within the right of the copyright owner to not want an image not intended to be published taken down.” Several Twitter users who reposted the photo themselves found it erased from their accounts with a message saying “This image has been removed in response to a report from the copyright holder.”

In a four page letter following Khloe’s “live” underwear videos, the Good American jeans founder explained to fans why she made such a big deal about the unedited bikini photo from Easter. “Hey guys, this is me and my body unretouched and unfiltered,” she wrote in the lengthy post. “The photo that was posted this week was beautiful. But as someone who has struggled with body image her whole life, when someone takes a photo of you that isn’t flattering in bad lighting or doesn’t capture your body the way it is after working to hard to get it to this point – and then shares it to the world – you should have every right to ask for it not to be shared – no matter who you are.”

The ‘Glee’ cast reunited to celebrate the life of one of their own on Thursday, April 8.

The Glee cast paid tribute to the late Naya Rivera during a special virtual reunion as part of the GLAAD Media Awards on April 8, and it was a moment that fans of the TV series will likely never forget.

After acknowledging all the lives lost due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the cast turned their attention to the hardest loss they had to suffer — the death of their “dear friend” Naya Rivera. Each cast member took a turn saying how “talented” they knew she was and how much of an impact she had on them, as well as the millions of viewers who tuned into Glee each week. “There was so much more than met the eye with Naya,” said Darren Criss.

“She made everybody laugh on screen and off but the real win is if you made her laugh because you knew you actually did something really funny,” Jenna Ushkowitz added.

Heather Morris, Jenna Ushkowitz, Jacob Artist, Chris Colfer, Darren Criss, Jessalyn Gilsig, Dot-Marie Jones, Vanessa Lengies, Jane Lynch, Kevin McHale, Matthew Morrison, Alex Newell, Lauren Potter, Amber Riley, Harry Shum Jr., and Becca Tobin also celebrated the 10-year anniversary of Naya’s Glee character Santana coming out, while further putting a spotlight on the character’s impact on both LGBTQ teens and Latinx LGBTQ representation on television. And as an added bonus, Demi Lovato, who guest-starred as Santana’s girlfriend on the show, introduced the tribute, while Naya’s mother Yolanda Previtire released the following statement during the telecast:

“It’s something to celebrate,”Jenna told Entertainment Weekly before the cast’s reunion. “It’s something that marked a lot of fans’ lives and affected a lot of people in the fandom because of her bravery as a character and seeing themselves represented on TV. Glee was breaking barriers at the time. It’s bittersweet because we miss her so much, and I feel like there was so much more she would have done if she was still around, but the fact that we’re able to pay tribute and honor the work she did do, and the effect she did have on people’s lives, it gives us something to celebrate as well in her remembrance.”

Naya tragically passed away in 2020 — she drowned at Lake Piru, near Santa Clarita, California, while swimming with her son, Josey, who was found alone on their rented boat. Following her death, most of the Glee cast gathered to memorialize her, while fans mourned her death by rewatching Naya’s best performances from the hit Fox TV series, which lasted six seasons and ran from 2009 to 2015.

Cardi B’s daughter, Kulture, carried Princess Diana’s favorite Dior purse for an adorable photo shoot. It was a piece from the two-year-old’s $24K haul of designer looks from her mom.

Cardi B‘s two-year-old daughter, Kulture, is putting her $24,000-worth of new designer pieces to use! The fashionista had a little photo shoot while touting her new $4,600 Mini Lady Dior Bag and Chanel’s $475 double-C earrings. The jewelry matched the Chanel barrette adorned with a giant bow on her head! Kulture’s outfit was just as vogue: a fuzzy cheetah print vest layered over a white turtleneck top, paired with flared navy trousers, Uggs boots and fabulous cat eye sunglasses.

Kulture’s purse has a fun backstory. The late Princess Diana, who passed away in 1997, actually inspired the name of the signature Dior bag that Cardi’s daughter was holding. Given the royal’s habit of carrying around that particular Dior bag following its debut in 1995, Dior renamed it as the “Lady Dior Bag” to pay tribute to Diana’s old title, Lady Diana Spencer.

Cardi posted the adorable photos to her Instagram page on April 8, captioning them, “Made in Belcalis. @kulturekiari my girly cheetah girl.” P.S. — Cardi was referring to her legal name, Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar. While fans gushed over Kulture’s impeccable style, some wanted to know if she was “feeling better” lately. “She a little puffy cause she been sick lately but she has gotten better,” Cardi explained to one of her worried fans.

The new purse and earrings were just two pieces among an expensive designer haul that Cardi pulled together for her daughter. On April 6, Cardi showed off the new additions to Kulture’s wardrobe: three Chanel bags (a quilted vanity case, a pearl-studded drawstring bag and a quilted flap bag), two more Dior bags (another Mini Lady Dior bag and a monogram saddlebag), and a rhinestone-embellished tote bag from Dolce & Gabbana.

Rob Kardashian was back on the April 8 episode of ‘KUWTK,’ and this time, he even joined in on some party planning with his family.

It’s only every so often that Rob Kardashian is on Keeping Up With the Kardashians these days, and he made another rare appearance on the show’s April 8 episode. This time, Rob gathered with his mom, Kris Jenner, and some other family members to discuss his grandmother, MJ’s, 86th birthday party. The family met up at the Malibu beach house that they were renting for the summer and tried to decide the best way for MJ to safely celebrate her birthday amidst the coronavirus.

Once again, Rob looked happy and healthy while showing off his weight loss on the show. He dressed casually and wore a backwards baseball cap for the lunch. Kris began spouting off her ideas for MJ’s party, which would be held at the Malibu beach house, with testing and masks required. After sharing all of her ideas, Kris opened it up to the other family members for discussion.

That’s when Rob jumped in and proved he still has the same sense of humor that he’s always had. “You should try getting her a guy for the night, like, to hook up with,” he said. “She might be down!” Scott Disick cracked up, and Kris responded, “You have a very interesting sense of humor!”

Rob has struggled with his weight, body image, and confidence for years, which is what led him to take a step back from the public eye and from KUWTK. During his relationship with Blac Chyna in 2016, he began showing up a bit more, and also even had his own spin-off, Rob & Chyna, for one season. However, after the split, he retreated from the limelight once again.

In 2020, though, Rob debuted a major weight loss, and has been more confident about being in the spotlight ever since. Although he’s still a very private person, Rob has been popping up on his sisters’ Instagram pages much more often lately. Plus, this was already his second appearance on the final season of KUWTK — he showed up in another scene during the April 1 episode, as well.

Senior Evening Writer

LeBron James, John Legend and more stars are speaking out against Georgia’s controversial new law that could make it harder for Black residents to vote.

Ever since Georgia Governor Brian Kemp, 57, signed the controversial voting bill SB 202 – backed by Republicans and passed in the statehouse on a party-line vote – into law on Mar. 25, there’s been a massive outcry about how it could likely suppress Black voters. The new law cuts down on times for advanced voting, requires an ID for an absentee ballot and forbids volunteers from providing food or water to voters waiting for hours in long lines. As a result, many celebrities have come out against SB 202.

NBA superstar LeBron James recently became a part owner of the Boston Red Sox MLB team, and cheered on the league’s decision to move the 2021 All-Star game out of Atlanta in protest of the new law. The game will now take place at Denver’s Coors Field. MLB commissioner Rob Manfred said the decision to move the All-Star Game was “the best way to demonstrate our values as a sport” in protest over GA’s restrictive new voting law. As a result, LeBron tweeted on Apr. 2, “Proud to call myself a part of the @mlb family today,” adding, “@Morethanavote #BlackLivesMatter.”

Proud to call myself a part of the @mlb family today.  @Morethanavote #BlackLivesMatter 🙏🏾✊🏾👑

Singer John Legend also commended MLB’s decision, and also pointed out claims that then Secretary of State Kemp — who oversaw elections —  allegedly “stole” the 2018 gubernatorial election from Democrat Stacey Abrams. “Governor Kemp is a liar who had to cheat while overseeing his own race to attain his position. He’s learned that the best way to win elections is to rig the game. He’s being exposed as the underhanded anti-democratic operator he always has been. Thank you @MLB for taking a stand,” Legend tweeted on Apr. 2.

Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi immediately called out the Georgia voting law on Mar. 26 shortly after Kemp signed the bill:

Last year 1.3 million Georgians voted absentee by mail.

There is ZERO EVIDENCE of widespread voter fraud in Georgia.

Kemp's law is a desperate attempt to disenfranchise millions of voters because his party lost both runoff elections in January.

It will be struck down.

— Padma Lakshmi (@PadmaLakshmi) March 26, 2021

Actor/Director Edward Norton called those behind SB202 “racists” in a tweet showing a photo of the white men who previously didn’t want to wear face masks during the threat of COVID-19, masked up to hide their faces as Gov. Kemp signed the controversial bill into law.

These guys also played down Covid and mocked wearing masks. So I’m thinking maybe they are wearing them here because they know it’s better to hide their faces from the historical record, which will document them as the racists they are. https://t.co/JsT6meXvdA

— Edward Norton (@EdwardNorton) March 26, 2021

Actress and activist Alyssa Milano pointed out how it’s not just Georgia but numerous other Republican controlled statehouses that are looking to enact stricter voting laws, especially after the 2020 election saw previously red or swing states such as Georgia, Arizona and Nevada flip Democrat blue.

Across the country, over 250 pieces of voter suppression legislation have been introduced in state legislatures. It is not only Georgia. Make no mistake, this is a concerted Republican effort. 

As Democrats, we must never stop fighting to protect voting rights.

— Alyssa Milano (@Alyssa_Milano) March 31, 2021

After they lost the Georgia runoffs, the GOP introduced hundreds of anti-voter bills across the country.

Let's build momentum together to pass the #ForThePeopleAct and protect voting rights at the FEDERAL level.

— Julia Louis-Dreyfus (@OfficialJLD) April 7, 2021

Actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus also pointed out how the GOP is introducing voter suppression bills in other states, after the Georgia election for president and their two open U.S. Senate seats went to Democrats in incredibly close races. She also linked out to mobilize.us which is providing information, virtual events and more in honor of “For the People Week of Action” taking place Apr. 5-9.

Diddy’s Fans Cheer After He Blasts General Motors & Demands More Money For Black Owned Businesses

Diddy called out large corporations for ‘standing with’ the Black community in ‘solidarity’ but not fairly compensating Black-owned media in advertising revenue.

Diddy, 51, made a powerful statement targeting large American corporations — including General Motors. The entrepreneur and rapper penned the lengthy letter — titled “If You Love Us, Pay Us: A letter from Sean Combs to Corporate America” — on the website of his company Revolt on Thursday, May 8. In the letter, he specifically addressed the advertising spend of GM to Black-owned businesses, compare with the revenue they earn from Black customers.

“The same feet these companies use to stand with us in solidarity are the same feet they use to stand on our necks,” Diddy — who is was worth an estimated $740 Million In 2019 according to Forbes — began, noting that GM lists his company Revolt as an example of Black-owned media they “support.” Despite this, Revolt does not receive advertising revenue from the car giant, Diddy explained. “Instead, REVOLT, just like other Black-owned media companies, fights for crumbs while GM makes billions of dollars every year from the Black community,” the former Making The Band host said. Diddy launched Revolt in 2013, which is one of his many business ventures: he founded Bad Boy Records in 1993, in addition to owning Ciroc Vodka and Sean John clothing.

Diddy — née Sean Combs — went viral after posting a letter calling out America’s largest companies. (Shutterstock)

“Exposing GM’s historic refusal to fairly invest in Black-owned media is not an assassination of character, it’s exposing the way GM and many other advertisers have always treated us. No longer can Corporate America manipulate our community into believing that incremental progress is acceptable action,” he explained. “Corporations like General Motors have exploited our culture, undermined our power, and excluded Black entrepreneurs from participating in the value created by Black consumers,” he wrote, pulling up some important numbers: the rapper noted that in 2019, of the $239 billion spent on advertising by companies, only 1% went to Black-owned companies.

Within hours of the letter being posted, the letter went viral on Twitter — prompting plenty of support for Diddy and the Black community. “Nobody can say it better than Mr. Sean Comb,” one user wrote. “Target said they’d spend $2B on black owned businesses by 2025. Better late than never? Where are the other companies making pledges like this…? I’ll wait,” another added. “I applaud this letter from Diddy calling for respect for the Black business community. I also ask for the same respect from Corporate America for the disabled business community,” a third added.

It turns out that margin also applies to GM. “Out of the roughly $3 billion General Motors spent on advertising, we estimate only $10 million was invested in Black-owned media. Only $10 million out of $3 billion! Like the rest of Corporate America, General Motors is telling us to sit down, shut up and be happy with what we get,” Diddy — who is a dad of six — went on in his impassioned letter. He then declared this “disrespectful” considering the “influence” of Black-owned media brands. “It’s disrespectful that the same community that represents 14% of the population and spends over $1.4 trillion annually is still the most economically undervalued and underserved at every level. To repeat, $1.4 TRILLION ANNUALLY! The Almighty Black Dollar!”

I applaud this letter from Diddy calling for respect for the Black business community. I also ask for the same respect from Corporate America for the disabled business community. https://t.co/tkNrZp5p2y

— Michelle J. Rozovics (@RozoRuminations) April 8, 2021

“We demand that Corporate America reinvest an equitable percentage of what you take from our community back into our community. If the Black community represents 15% of your revenue, Black-owned media should receive at least 15% of the advertising spend,” he added. “The same way you understand the power of our dollars, we understand our power to take them away from any corporation that doesn’t give us the economic inclusion we deserve…If you love us, pay us! Not a token investment. Not a charity check or donation,” he concluded.

Diddy has been a strong advocate of the Black Lives Matter movement, which had a powerful resurgence in 2020 following the murder of Minneapolis resident George Floyd. Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin has since charged with both murder and manslaughter after video of him kneeling on Floyd’s neck went viral on social media. In the horrifying video, Floyd can he heard yelling “I can’t breathe,” multiple times during the nine-minute ordeal.

Why Larsa Pippen & Malik Beasley Really Split: Plus — Has She Already Moved On?

Why Larsa Pippen & Malik Beasley Really Split: Plus — Has She Already Moved On?

Larsa Pippen split with NBA star Malik Beasley ‘a while ago’ and she’s already being pursued by a hot new man.

Larsa Pippen, 46, and Malik Beasley, 24, have broken up — but the The Real Housewives of Miami alum isn’t losing any sleep over it. In fact, multiple sources told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY that Larsa is the one that called off the romance.

“Things ran their course between them. No one expected her to marry this guy, she was having fun. But then it started to get complicated and that’s not her thing, so she ended it,” revealed a source close to the reality beauty.

“There are no hard feelings, they’re cool. But she’s doing her thing in Miami and he’s on the other side of the country and that’s that,” the source added.
According to the same source, things between Larsa and the Minnesota Timberwolves player ended “a while ago” but it’s only making headlines now because she was recently spotted getting cozy with a new man. Larsa and 27-year-old entrepreneur Myles Kronman were photographed enjoying a date at the W Hotel last month.
“[Myles] has been pursuing her and she’s having fun,” explained the source. “She’s in a very empowered place in her life, she’s really never felt better.”

A second source close to Larsa echoed the sentiment. “She’s not necessarily even looking for a relationship and she’s perfectly fine being single and enjoying time with her family and girlfriends. So it would take someone really incredible to get her to settle down.”

When it comes to what went wrong between Larsa and Malik, our source said it was just too much “drama” for the mamma of four. “Larsa knows her worth and she enjoys spending a lot of time with someone, especially when she first starts dating them. Malik has a lot on his plate and she didn’t have the time or energy to get involved in that drama.”

As HollywoodLife readers know, things between Larsa started when he was still legally married to Montana Yao, 23. Larsa insisted in an interview with Hollywood Unlocked, that Malik and Montana were already “separated.”

Larsa told the outlet, “I Googled them when I first met him — they weren’t together. They had issues before. It had nothing to do with me, so I wasn’t thinking anything about it. If you spent a minute Googling their situation, it wasn’t the ideal situation way before me.”

Popcaan Told PM Andrew Holness To Invest “Your money into dancehall music”

Popcaan added an interesting twist to the ongoing discussion of Jamaica Prime Minister Andrew Holness blaming dancehall for crimes in the country.

In an early morning tweet on Thursday (April 8), Popcaan told PM Holness to invest some of his own money into dancehall music. His statement comes after PM Holness says that he’s the first Jamaican Prime Minister to openly embraced and support dancehall music. Still, his recent statement triggered a backlash not only from entertainers but also from fans, a lot of whom have voted for him in past elections.

“Good morning mr prime minister, invest some of your money into dancehall music, Embrace it for a year!!!! you’ll never regret your investment,” Popcaan tweeted.

While it’s very unlikely that the Prime Minister will respond to Popcaan directly, it’s likely that he will further address the broader issue in the near future. The Unruly deejay’s tweet breathes new life into the ongoing debate sparked by the Holness over a week ago where he blamed dancehall lyrics for high crime rate. The vast majority of fans of the deejay disagree with Holness’s assessment, but some others don’t agree with politicians pumping money in the genre due to the fear that they will ultimately stifle creativity.

“Government not allowed to mix up in Art or Culture poppy,” one fan tweeted in response to Popcaan. “Our creativity is at risk if such should happen. Plus we no want nuh hand outs from Politicians remember.”

Good morning mr prime minister, invest some of your money into dancehall music, Embrace it for a year!!!! you'll never regret your investment.

— Popcaan (@PopcaanMusic) April 8, 2021

Government not allowed to mix up in Art or Culture poppy. Our creativity is at risk if such should happen. Plus we no want nuh hand outs from Politicians remember.

— Eddie Fisher (@kause1331) April 8, 2021

Suppose the Prime Minister should invest his own money in ventures related to dancehall. In that case, it means he would retain some ownership stake in that venture, so perhaps Popcaan is echoing an age-old cry from the entertainment community that the government of Jamaica is not investing enough money into the music and culture, even though reggae/dancehall contributes to a portion of the country’s GDP directly and indirectly through promoting Jamaica on tour globally.

In 2019, Reggae Sumfest generated over JM$1 billion into the Jamaican economy, according to Tourism Minister Edmund Bartlett. The vast majority of those funds came from overseas from patrons who flew to Jamaica to attend the event, which was one of the largest stagings of Sumfest to date in terms of attendance.

“We estimate the revenue impact from the festival to be $J1 Billion based on average room nights stay of locals and visitors and taxes,” Minister Bartlett echoed before adding. “The success of entertainment festivals such as Sumfest augurs well for tourism as it boosts arrivals and has a major economic impact in and around Montego Bay.”

Is there an incentive for the government to invest in dancehall? The answer is an overwhelming yes, as pointed out by Prime Minister Andrew Holness’ own cabinet minister.

That same year, PM Holness vowed that he would protect dancehall music from degeneration. “It is not everything that we call ‘culture’ will have the longevity to carry from generation to generation,” Holness said. “Societies have died because culture degenerated into decadence. The State cannot just stand by and allow the culture to just degenerate. The State has to work in support of those people who are willing to see to the longevity of the culture.”

While there is evidence that PM Andrew Holness has embraced dancehall in the past and engaged with artists, a growing number of dancehall entertainers feel his recent comments are tone-deaf. Veteran artists like Baby Cham pointed out several contributors to the crime wave gripping the island for decades. These contributors are still not addressed by successive administrations.

“From where I stand, as someone from the inner city, the ghetto and a public figure, I have observed where poverty, poor leadership, illiteracy, and lack of opportunities for Jamaica youths are the top four contributors of the country’s high crime rate, not the music,” Baby Cham said while pointing out that children also consumed other contents deemed violent through other mediums like Netflix on their smartphones.

Other artists like the legendary Bounty Killer and his former Alliance protege, Mavado, have all spoken out strongly against the PM’s statement.

Undoubtedly, this discussion is needed at this present moment in dancehall and needs to be an ongoing one. Nevertheless, Popcaan just added another side to the conversation with a single tweet.

Should Prime Minister Andrew Holness invest his own money in dancehall music?

Beenie Man Shares Clip Of Inside His Mother’s Tomb Fitting For A Queen

Dancehall icon Beenie Man laid his mother to rest in fine style fitting for a queen.

Beenie Man’s mother, Lilieth Sewell, passed away in September 2020 at the age of 63, after spending several weeks getting treatment at the University Hospital of the West Indies (UHWI) following a stroke in July last year.

Despite her age, Beenie Man and his family ensured Sewell was not buried on a traditional burial ground but in a trendy two-story tomb located in her native parish of St. Elizabeth. Videos circulating on social media show the burial home, which is laced with gold-colored curtains, a modern, white door, a sofa set, a mirror with his late mothers’ picture, and her tomb in the middle.

The “King of the Dancehall” deejay said goodbye to his mother during a sorrowful ceremony in October.

A video of Beenie Man fainting at the funeral had circulated on social media, and the artiste later explained that, “On Sunday, October 25th I laid my mom to rest. It was by far and still is the most difficult thing I have ever had to do. Leading up to the day of the funeral I was involved in every aspect of the planning an execution.”

Beenie Man

He continued, “I kept telling myself, maybe if it remained active I will be able to function. Unfortunately, when it came down to that very last moment, it hit me and hit very hard. This would be the last time I would see my mom. Despite the noise, the singing, the mourning, all I could hear was silence while watching my mom’s body being lowered into the tomb.”

The recording artiste gave a tour of her burial site two months ago on the day, which would have been her 64th birthday.

During the tour, the “Girls Dem Sugar” said, “This is the serious point about it. To how mi love mi mada, mi couldn’t bury har under the ground, mi haffi have har close. Mi nuh know still, mi love my mada different, mi nuh know bout no other people and dem mada, my ting different.”

Beenie man had also announced that he was showing his love by dedicating a community center to his mother. The facility will be constructed in the community of Waterhouse.

Master P Almost Fight Kobe Bryant Forcing Lamar Odom To Step In

Master P almost had a brawl with Kobe Bryant, according to a tale from Lamar Odom.

Kobe Bryant is still being remembered a year after his death. The self-proclaimed Mamba player is known for his drive and competitive spirit and will go down in history as one of basketball’s greatest. He was also competitive and demanded respect on his own turf, especially from those who stepped foot on his training grounds.

One of those moments was recalled by Laker player Lamar Odom who says that Master P once showed up at a Laker’s practice session, and immediately, he and Bryant clashed- almost coming to blows with Master P.

In an interview with Vlad TV, Odom said the men’s headstrong personalities clashed immediately. “The aura, the energy or the timing of it, [Kobe] wasn’t really kinda feeling it,” he began. “You gotta understand, these are two alpha males and their own, in what they do. [it was] Awkward. You feel me? So I’m from the street so I can peep it.”

Odom said he stepped between both men to quell a possible physical altercation. “So, I’m tryin’ to just dead it, but it was awkward. It wasn’t like, getting in the middle, but I’m just gonna check both of they temperatures and make sure they cool. I’m gonna use my Jamaica, Queens instinct. The energy was just off between them.”

While Odom couldn’t recall the exact dates, it was around the 2004-2005 season in which the Lakers disappointingly missed the playoffs. Odom and Bryant were teammates from 2004-2011.

Kobe Bryant a Phony

It seems that Master P wasn’t fond of Kobe, having himself had a pair of training camp stints in the 1990s, and he’s been very critical of Kobe even after that incident.

In 2015, he called out Kobe for being “phony” when he reached out after Odom was found unconscious in a Nevada brothel.

“I’m talking about Kobe,” he said. “All this man wanted to do was play basketball. Kobe was his friend and he like owned the team. He could’ve got [Lamar] back on the team. Even in that situation, I think [Lamar] was just searching for love. His biggest problem was where the people were at that he showed love to. It’s phony,” Master P had then said.

JT & Lil Uzi Vert Gushes Over Each Other After He Gifted Her A Louis Vuitton Bag

JT and Lil Uzi Vert can’t stop gushing over each other.

The love affair between the City Girls rapper and Lil Uzi Vert has been confirmed, the two have not been shy about displaying their affection for each other for the world to see. When he is not sending her crab legs or other tokens; He is gifting her expensive brand name items. His latest gift to his boo is a new Louis Vuitton bag.

As is the usual style, they share everything with their fans, and this gift is no different. JT posted a photo of the very exquisite bag with the caption, “Thanks for spoiling me, treating me like a queen, the consistency, the things behind the scenes! You always doing your big one for me! Making it harder for the next exclusive lurkin.”

In response, Lil Uzi Vert wrote, “Your friendship and love is worth more than ALL THIS STUFF…Thank you. just thank you.”

It has only been about a month since the two confirmed they were in a relationship. For a long time, there was some speculation with neither partying giving into the hype and buzz. However, in early March, they both confirmed they were indeed together. Since then, the two have constantly been very affectionate online and have been sighted in public out and about.

The pair also seem to spend a lot of time online defending each other, and they are now surrounded by enormous bouts of drama. It can be either a comment or action that has drawn the ire of their respective fans, but both parties seem to delight in addressing just about everything. Just a few days ago, JT was online telling off fans about an attempt made to stir up trouble with Lil Uzi and her fellow city girl member Yung Miami. From all indications, both herself and Yung Miami seem to still have a pretty good relationship, and she even commented on JT’s new gift writing the fire emoji.

A post shared by The Shade Room (@theshaderoom)

In regards to the fans’ responses, some praised the happy couple wishing them well, while a large number of them seem tired of the JT and Lil Uzi Vert saga and their constant drama.

Clearly, fans don’t view the relationship as one of substance and believe that the pair is focused solely on material things. They note that for them, this is definitely not “couple goals.”

Another user bragged, “I can get that at Aldo for 40,” taking a swipe at the price tag for the bag, which is reportedly 40K and upwards of 300K.

One fan also likened JT and Uzi’s relationship to Saweetie and Quavo’s. Does this mean that a bitter end is also in the future for this pairing?

Linda Ronstadt – La Cigarra Lyrics

Ray Perez Y Soto

Ya no me cantes cigarra
Que acabe tu sonsonete
Que tu canto aqui en el alma
Como un punal se me mete
Sabiendo que cuando cantas
Pregonando vas tu muerte.

Marinero marinero
Dime si es verdad que sabes
Porque distinguir no puedo
Si en el fondo de los mares
Hay otro color mas negro
Que el color de mis pesares.

Un palomito al volar
Que llevaba el pecho herido
Ya casi para llorar
Me dijo muy afligido.
Ya me canso de buscar
Un amor correspondido.
Bajo la sombra de un arbol
Y al compas de mi guitarra
Canto alegre este huapango
Porque la vida se acaba
Y quiero morir cantando
Como muere la cigarra.

Honey Boo Boo weeps in emotional pain during her first meeting with her mother after Mama June spent over six months in rehab.

Mama June Shannon‘s drug addiction, 2019 possession arrest and six month stint in a South Florida rehab center caused her to miss out on some of the biggest moments in daughter Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson‘s life. The 41-year-old comes face to face with her 15-year-old daughter for the first time in over a year on the upcoming April 9 episode of Mama June: Road to Redemption. In it, Alana weeps over her mother missing her milestone first day of high school and other big moments due to her being away fighting her own demons, in a clip you can see here.

Alana has been living with her 21-year-old sister Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon  since June’s 2019 arrest, who has had to be both a mom and a sibling to the former child beauty queen. In a promo clip, Alana cries and tells June, “It’s just hard because you wasn’t there for my first day of high school and I think that’s a pretty big thing”

“It was hard for me not having my mom there and I had to come home and tell Pumpkin what I was doing. And yes, I’m very grateful that Pumpkin was there for me, but why wasn’t you there? Why wasn’t you there in the moments when I needed you most?” Alana asks through tears of pain.

June explained that it was because of her drug addiction that she wasn’t in any condition to care for herself or others. “Because I was sick. I couldn’t take care of myself. Yes, for awhile I was maintaining and taking care of y’all, but I wasn’t doing what I needed to do,” she told her daughter.

Alana then questioned, “What’s the point in doing it if the most important person that I want to be there for everything in my life…the important parts, the sad parts, whatever it is…is not there to see me?” Family therapist Dr. Ish then interjected and said, “Once the anger is gone and the hurt is gone and the disappointment is gone, you just feel kind of empty,” as Alana cried and nodded her head.

At her lowest point, June and her boyfriend  Geno Doak were using “a couple ounces a day” of meth and said that “Our habit was $2,500 a day, if not more.” June was so broke she sold the family home and lived out of her car, she admitted during a June 2020 episode of Mama June: Family Crisis. The pair finally committed to in-patient treatment and were sent to Banyan Treatment Center in Stuart, FL. June shared in a Jan. 28 Instagram post that the couple had made it to the one year mark of sobriety with no setbacks, while making South Florida their home and helping others with addiction get in to recovery programs.

In the teaser clip, June admitted to Alana, “I know I was selfish when I went to rehab and to be honest with you, I’m still a little bit selfish in my recovery. But I’m willing to do whatever it takes to get you all back in my life and that’s the reason why I’m here today.” Dr. Ish then said to hold right there, because he wanted to hear what Alana had to say about June’s claims.

“You don’t know how many nights I cried myself to sleep just hoping and praying that you don’t overdose,” she shared. “‘God, please don’t let my mom die. Please just hold onto her. Just please!’ I just wanted you there and even if I texted your phone, I wouldn’t even get a text back so hell, I never knew if you were alive or dead anyways.” Fans can tune in to see what June has to say in response when Mama June: Road to Redemption airs on Apr. 9 on WE tv at 9 pm ET/PT.

Other responds certainly brought the laughs on Twitter, including a post from journalist Peter Hess. “SVU is filming in park slope this week and someone in the neighborhood facebook group posted this photo of chris meloni,” he posted, along with a sweaty emoji — adding, “Law and Ardor: Special Thicctims Unit.” As if that wasn’t funny enough, several others shared the photo — which showed Chris talking to co-star Danielle Moné Truitt. “How do you think they make that donk-donk sound in each episode,” another penned, while a third went on to compare him to superhero icon Captain America. “Steve Rogers might have America’s A–, but that right there is New York City’s A–,” they added.

Fans have been waiting patiently for the upcoming Law & Order spinoff, which reunites him with his longtime co-star Mariska Hargitay. Chris departed Law & Order: SVU back in 2011 after character was put on leave following a squad room shootout where he shot and killed the young daughter of a rape victim. The character later retired from the NYPD, but has seemingly returned to service as part of NYPD’s organized crime division. Christopher and Mariska posted a selfie from their first day back on set, adding to even more buzz for the show which counts Taylor Swift as a fan (she named two of her cats for the characters).

Back in June, Chris reflected on where Stabler is at in his life a decade since fans last saw him. “I think he’s in a good place now with his family,” he said on SiriusXM’s The Jess Cagle Show. “I think he’s at a much better place with himself vis-à-vis the world. I think where we’re going to find him though, however, because he hasn’t been working in New York, NYPD in New York, I think he’s going to be coming back into a world that, I think as we’re all experiencing right now, has really changed with policing and the citizenry. It’s a new day and there are new ways of going about things. I think those are all issues to address in the show and I think it’s going to be a challenge for Elliot, one that I think he’ll meet,” he added.

‘Duck Dynasty’ star Rebecca Robertson has opened up on her parent’s new Facebook Watch show about anti-asian hate, and the ‘ignorant’ people she’s encountered.

Duck Dynasty‘s Willie Robertson and Korie Robertson have sat down with their adopted daughter Rebecca Robertson for the latest episode of their Facebook Watch series, At Home with the Robertsons, which premiered on April 5. Taiwan-born Rebecca spoke about the anti-Asian racism she’s faced, which has been particularly heightened during the coronavirus pandemic. “Asian people have been experiencing things differently in this last year because of COVID,” Korie began, as Rebecca chimed in to recall a recent encounter.

“We were eating somewhere in town, and someone we knew came over, an acquaintance of [husband] John Reed, and he just came over and was like ‘John Reed, you’re so lucky because your wife and kid are Chinese you can just send them to the grocery store to get toilet paper because everyone would just run away from them.’” She added, “He thought that was like a funny joke, but it really wasn’t funny because first of all we’re not Chinese.”

Her husband John them raised his hand, reiterating, “Again this guy is not my friend…” before Rebecca continued, “I think it’s just that people [are] kind of ignorant. And they don’t think that’s racist?” In the previous episode of At Home with the Robertsons, the reality TV stars sat down with their adopted biracial son “Little Will”, admitting they “felt nervous” for him at times.

“I think it’s really important to have this conversation, to listen … and hopefully bring people along to the conversation,” Willie began, adding, “We have a bi-racial son and we’ve felt nervous for him, and they could feel that, as well. And so hopefully just the nature of the show itself, you know, that we can help put this racism away and so that was a great conversation. It’s tough, it’s a tough topic but it’s kind of where we are, right? It’s where we are in America, it’s what a lot of people are talking about which is the nature of the show.”

Shanna Moakler got shady on Instagram amid Travis Barker and Kourtney’s romance by telling a fan that her mom ‘doesn’t like’ the Kardashians!

Shanna Moakler lobbed a less than subtle diss at the Kardashian family yet again, as her ex-husband Travis Barker‘s romance with Kourtney Kardashian continues to heat up. The former Miss Universe, 46, hasn’t held back since Travis and Kourtney got together in February, making and “liking” comments about her ex’s new relationship. This time, it was a little more blatant.

@shannamoakler/Instagram

Shanna hopped on Instagram on April 7 to post a gorgeous photo of herself and captioned it, “My mama don’t like you and she likes everyone” — lyrics from Justin Bieber‘s “Love Yourself.” A fan commented, “My mama likes everyone besides the Kardashians,” adding laughing/crying emojis, to which Shanna replied, “mine too lol.” She has since deleted the post.

This is far from the first time that she’s gotten a little shady about Kourtney and Travis’ relationship. Just days after the couple went public with their relationship, Shanna “liked” a comment left on one of her Instagram photos that said Travis “downgraded” with Kourtney. Shanna insisted that she mistakenly hit the like button on that particular comment.

“Sometimes when I’m on social media, I’ll like all the fans’ comments. I just kinda go down and like everything. And I guess I liked a comment that was disparaging. When I saw the headlines, I was like, ‘What is this?’ I had to go back and look at it,” she told Entertainment Tonight in March.

“Travis and I haven’t been together for almost a decade. We co-parent. We’re friends,” Shanna insisted, adding that she just wants the father of her children to be “happy.” And if Kourtney makes him happy, then “that’s awesome.” But Shanna also posted a cryptic quote to her Instagram Story that fans believe to be about Travis.

It read: “Stop complaining about your life. There are people out there dating your ex.” Shanna and Travis married in 2004, only to split in 2006. They entered into an on-again, off-again relationship until finalizing their divorce in 2008. However, they continued to living together to co-parent their children, Landon and Alabama (now 17 and 15, respectively), until 2014. They now live apart.

Shanna was most recently dating actor Matthew Rondeau. She and Kourtney go way back. Kourtney lived in the same neighborhood as Shanna and Travis, and when their children were little, they’d even play with Kourt and Scott Disick’s kids. Shanna also appeared in early episodes of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

Hilaria Baldwin photographed a candid mirror selfie with all six of her cute kiddos! See the mom in action, capturing the adorable moment.

Mom duty is never over, and Hilaria Baldwin knows that all too well! The mother-of-six, 37, looked ready to head out for a busy day on April 7, as seen in a new photo she shared to Instagram, featuring Hilaria with a baby in a carrier on her chest, another in a stroller, and her four other kiddos all huddled together. How Hilaria managed to nab the picture herself with both of her hands full is truly a lesson in multi-tasking. See the pic below!

Hilaria, who shares her kiddos with husband of nearly 10 years, 63-year-old actor Alec Baldwin, sweetly captioned the photo with the words “my squad,” and added a glittering emoji to the phrase. Although this might be one of the first selfies that Hilaria has shown her Instagram followers, it’s not the first time they have seen her brood all together! Hilaria and Alec share youngsters Eduardo “Edu” Pao Lucas, 7 mos., Romeo, 2, Leonardo, 4, Rafael Thomas, 5, Carmen Gabriella, 7, and just welcomed their precious baby girl, Lucia, at the beginning of March!

The couple was so excited to bring their baby boy and infant daughter home, and that couldn’t have been more evident than in a photo Hilaria shared to Instagram on March 1. In the photo, captured by Alec, Hilaria gazed lovingly at her baby girl and boy, while the four youngsters around her smiled brightly at the camera! The devoted mom simply caption the image “7,” accounting for herself and her six youngsters.

Lucia’s birth came as quite a pleasant surprise to longtime fans of the couple, who didn’t expect Hilaria and Alec to welcome a little one after the birth of their son in September 2020. “We’re oh-so-done,” Alec said in a November 2020 interview with People, following the birth of the couple’s son. Hilaria, though, wasn’t so sure about her husband’s word.

“I want to ask you that in two hours, and we’ll see what you say. I’ll ask you in two hours,” she said to Alec in response. But the couple’s youngsters are totally thriving with the newest additions. “It’s actually really amazing to watch them because I know that they’re going to be the kind of adults who are really good with kids because they just know so much.”

Alexander 23 Explains How Releasing ‘Oh No, Not Again’ EP Was ‘A Weight Lifted Off My Shoulders’

Alexander 23 Explains How Releasing ‘Oh No, Not Again’ EP Was ‘A Weight Lifted Off My Shoulders’

Singer-songwriter Alexander 23 shares how his new EP has been a ‘reaffirming’ project, his ‘most personal and favorite song,’ and when fans can expect more music.

Alexander 23 is a name you should know if you don’t already. The Chicago native experienced a taste of viral fame in 2020, thanks to the “IDK You Yet” TikTok craze that saw users apply the song’s heartfelt lyrics to a variety of different stories and scenarios. Alexander also happens to be one of your favorite artists’ favorite artists (Olivia Rodrigo recently dubbed him “the coolest, most talented dude I know”), and after listening to Oh No, Not Again!, it’s easy to see why.

The nine-track EP, full of songs written at the height of the pandemic, showcases Alexander’s captivating voice and undeniable talent. “My songwriting process is all about trying to be as true to my life as possible,” he tells HollywoodLife, “and I think that in order to do that, you have to explore your past as well as the present.”

Well, the future looks good for Alexander. Along with his new EP, he released the video for the charmingly titled “Come Here and Leave Me Alone.” He also made an appearance in Dove Cameron’s new video for “Lazy Baby,” further evidence that all your faves are fans of this rising star. Alexander 23 spoke with HollywoodLife over email about his new EP, why “Track 9” has a special place in his heart, and the number one thing he wants to accomplish before 2021 is said and done.

HollywoodLife: You’ve said that Oh No, Not Again felt “a nice, light-hearted way of saying ‘Why the fuck am I like this?’” So, one month after its release, do you have an answer to that question? 

Alexander 23: Sadly, I think it may take me a lifetime (and then some) to answer that question! I will say it’s been really nice finding out that so many people feel the same way.

How have your fans responded to the EP? Have they latched on to a particular song? Granted, “IDK You Yet” has blown up on TikTok, but are they really feeling a track like “Come Here and Leave Me Alone”?  

It’s been really special to see how the fans have accepted the EP as a full body of work, honestly, and it makes me really excited to get back in the studio to go make an album! There’s always this concern that maybe people will only listen to the singles, but the level of detailed analysis and care the fans have given the whole project has been really reaffirming.

I read that you wrote songs during the pandemic about stuff you wouldn’t have written about if you “didn’t have to sit in the same place and confront out of necessity.” First off, how do you feel now that you’ve written those songs?

It’s cliche, but it definitely feels like there has been a weight lifted off my shoulders. Quarantine forced me to deal with some past issues and relationships that I almost certainly would not have otherwise.

Do you think you’ll keep that songwriting process? 

Definitely! My songwriting process is all about trying to be as true to my life as possible, and I think that in order to do that, you have to explore your past as well as the present so, in a way, the pandemic has helped to open some creative doors.

“Track 9” is pretty meta – like, in a good way. It strikes me as the boldest track on the EP. Was there any hesitancy to write/include this song on the project, or did it feel like a cathartic moment?  

Both! Track 9 is the most personal song and my favorite song I have ever written. It’s definitely scary to release a song to the whole world that clearly has an intended audience of one.

It’s been extremely cathartic to watch the fans latch onto that song so strongly and bring it into their own worlds.

“IDK You Yet” is already certified gold, which would – in the eyes of many – make Oh No, Not Again a success. Does it feel that way to you? Or is just finishing a piece of art, like a song or an EP, in itself a success to you?  

Great question. I obviously see all of the crazy streaming stats and all of that really blows my mind, but for me, what really makes it feel “successful” is honestly the day after the release, all of the messages from fans. To have something that is so personal and that I’ve lived with for so long instantly transfer ownership to them is unbelievably rewarding.

We’re about a quarter of the way through 2021. When the year’s said and done, is there something you definitely want to say you’ve done, tried, and/or accomplished?  

ALBUM 1!

Oh No, Not Again! is out now.

 

Mia Martina’s New Book Helps Women ‘Stick Together’ & ‘Get The Right Mindset To Be Successful’

Mia Martina’s New Book Helps Women ‘Stick Together’ & ‘Get The Right Mindset To Be Successful’

‘Stereo Love’ singer Mia Martina wants women to stop looking at each other ‘as competition.’ She tells HollywoodLife how her new book ‘Boss Up Your Life’ encourages women how to ‘move in a sisterhood’ towards success.

“I found that a lot of my accomplishments were never celebrated,” Mia Martina said as she reflected on the early stages of being a multi-platinum music artist in a “male dominated” industry. The singer — who shot to fame with her 2010 dance hit, “Stereo Love” — is making sure other women and girls don’t have to embark on their own journeys towards success without a mentor by their side in her new book, Boss Up Your Life: A Girl’s Guide To Her Dream Career, which is out today (April 8). While Mia and her co-author, book publisher Ky-Lee Hanson, aren’t here to “tell you what to do,” she does EXCLUSIVELY tell HollywoodLife how the book will get you “to be successful” by tapping into the “right mindset” and relying on other women. This camaraderie was a luxury that Mia didn’t always have.

The front cover of Mia Martina and Ky-Lee Hanson’s new book, Boss Up Your Life: A Girl’s Guide To Her Dream Career. You can buy it on Amazon, here.

“I want [the book] to really focus [on] how important it is, as us as women, to work together and collaborate with each other. Because that’s the only way to push barriers — is if we help one another, and we really move in a sisterhood. Because that’s what men do,” Mia explained, saying “that’s why [men] are where they are — that’s why they support each other.”

“We need to do the same…we have to stop looking at another woman as our competition,” Mia continued. “More and more women are becoming more inviting — in inviting that sisterhood — but it really needs to come from a genuine place. And that’s really what me and Ky-Lee want to emphasize on, especially for the younger generation. We just really do need to stick together and support each other. It’s so important.”

Mia Martina is known for songs like “Stereo Love,” “Latin Moon,” “Burning” and “Beast.” She has also released three albums.

Mia’s offering her support to other women in the form of a book “full of tips,” which she described as a “how-to guide” to “get the right mindset to be successful if you’re in the creative field.” With a lack of women surrounding Mia in the beginning stages of her music career, the dance music sensation had to rely on herself to cultivate this mindset. 

“It was always, ‘Oh, she only got that because her manager is so and so, or this deal happened because of so and so and so and so and so and so,” Mia said. “And it’s like, never really looking to honor me — that I’m actually the talent…I still managed to get here on my own and celebrate my accomplishments.” 

Mia Martina teased that she has “lots of books coming” and called writing a “new passion” of hers while speaking with HollywoodLife.

After that experience, Mia didn’t simply want to pursue an independent path — she “needed” to. “You can’t create when you have all these feelings or these limitations or nobody to turn to or talk to, because you’re in a male-dominant circle,” she told us. “And that’s what made me change. And that’s what made me go independent. And doing so was very, very hard. But I learned so much. And I wouldn’t trade it for the world. Because now I actually know what my purpose is. And I know I wake up every day knowing that, ‘Yeah, maybe I have to struggle a bit more. And I have a lot more on my plate. But at least I’m doing it with my integrity and my direction and I feel good.’ Like I go to sleep happy.”

While Mia launched her music career amid these setbacks, she still looks back at the song that put her “on the map” — “Stereo Love’ — with nothing but sweet nostalgia. “It’s such a beautiful feeling, knowing that that song has touched so many people and so many people have great memories. And I was so fortunate to travel the world and to live my dream. So I’m forever grateful for that,” Mia said, after celebrating the song’s 10th anniversary in Oct. 2020. She added, “When I think back at 2010 it’s like, ‘Wow, that was my like, star-aligning moment, basically, for this journey. And I’m just filled with gratitude. I couldn’t ask for anything more. I’m so blessed.” 

Fast forward more than 10 years later, and Mia has undergone an “evolution” since her debut single that also came with a music video that has accumulated more than 467 million views over the years. “I was also very young when [“Stereo Love”] came out. So like now, my songwriting — it has definitely a lot more substance and experience. And overall, I’m just more experienced,” Mia told us. 

You’ll be able to hear this evolved sound in her new EP coming out in May of 2021. It’s a new type of dance music: not quite rave EDM, but rather, it’s her own genre that she labels as champagne music. “Because when you hear it, you’re gonna want to have a glass of champagne, and you’re gonna want to be on a beat and you’re gonna want to dance,” she explained.

In addition to Amazon, you can purchase Boss Up Your Life at the locations above!

The upcoming EP will reflect a more “sophisticated” sound since the days of “Stereo Love” and “Latin Moon” in the early 2010’s. While Mia had to take an independent route to get to this point, she wants her new book to serve as the mentor that she as a young girl from her small Canadian hometown, Saint-Ignace, didn’t have access to.

“Imagine if we would have had a mentor, how much easier things would have been…but we didn’t have that. And luckily, we’re here today, but if I can help a girl that’s super talented, and just has these big dreams and aspirations, why wouldn’t I do it?,” Mia told HollywoodLife. “Like, there’s abundance everywhere…and that’s kind of what [Ky-Lee and I] want to do this…to help this raise awareness. Because I believe once you reach a level of success, and you’re out there, it’s your duty to give back. And that’s where I am in my life.”

Jameela Jamil took to Twitter and criticized ‘diet culture’ and more, following Khloe Kardashian’s reaction to her untouched leaked photo.

Jameela Jamil used her platform to weigh in on Khloe Kardashian‘s reaction to her untouched photo being leaked online. The Good Place alum and activist, 35, took to Twitter on April 7, quote-retweeting the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star’s, 36, social media post about her leaked photo that circulated following the Kar-Jenner’s Easter getaway in Palm Springs. “This is what I was saying. She was bullied into this mind state,” Jameela began her tweet, referencing Khloe.

This is what I was saying. She was bullied into this mind state. But now is also a really good time to admit to surgeries, thinning photographs and videos, and to stop being part of the culture that makes girls like her hate herself. No more diet products.

“But now is also a really good time to admit to surgeries, thinning photographs and videos, and to stop being part of the culture that makes girls like her hate herself. No more diet products. No more ‘revenge body,’” she went on. “When diet culture wins, *everyone* else loses. Even the people making money from promoting it,” her statement ended.

Jameela has been an ardent critic of the unattainable beauty standards that have festered for years. While she has criticized some the decisions the Kardashian women have made in the past, she’s been clear that it’s about the result of a culture that has put pressure on women to look a certain way. But her latest statement comes following Khloe’s response to her leaked, untouched photo, which featured the star in a leopard bikini.

“This is me and my body unretouched and unfiltered. The photo that was posted this week was beautiful,” the mother-of-one began her statement. “When someone takes a photo of you that isn’t flattering in bad lighting or doesn’t capture your body the way it is after working so hard to get it to this point … you should have every right to ask for it to not be shared – regardless of who you are,” she continued. The Kardashian PR team was busy over the course of the last few days, trying to have the picture removed, which caused social media users who recirculated the image to be locked out of their accounts.

Jameela Jamil addressed the pressures of ‘diet culture,’ following Khloe Kardashian’s reaction to her unedited photo leaking online [Rob Latour/Shutterstock].“I am not perfect but I promise you that I try every day to live my life as honestly as possible with empathy and kindness.

Khloe Kardashian responded to her unedited photo being circulated online [Stephen Lovekin/Shutterstock].“My body, my image and how I choose to look and what I want to share is my choice,” Khloe continued. “It’s not for anyone to decide or judge what is acceptable or not anymore…for those else [SIC] who feel the constant pressure of not ever feeling perfect enough, I want you to now I see you and I understand.”

Millie Bobby Brown jokingly criticized her co-star David Harbour for seemingly spilling spoilers about the upcoming ‘Stranger Things 4’ while on Instagram Live.

“Don’t tell Netflix,” David Harbour warned his Stranger Things co-star Millie Bobby Brown after he joked about spilling season four spoilers. The actor, who plays Jim Hopper on the hit show, was called out by his 17-year-old on-screen daughter after he went live on Instagram on April 7. During a break from filming, David went live on the app, seemingly forgetting he was still in his character’s costume with bloody makeup. “What’s up, everybody? How’s it going?” the 45-year-old began. “I haven’t done Instagram Live in a little while. I think I can only be here for like three and a half minutes because I think I have to go to set fairly soon.”

He continued, “I’m here, shooting season four of our television show. I don’t think I’m supposed to be showing you these things. Who wants to hear spoilers for season four? Let me just read directly from the script.” The actor added, “It’s a very tough day today. Very tough day. I’m exhausted,” before bursting into laughter when he saw Millie had also joined the livestream.

“Oh s–t!” he laughed. “Millie! Oh, no. Millie, don’t tell Netflix, don’t tell Netflix that I’m doing Instagram Live from set. I’m just gonna read your sections of the script, Millie. I’m just gonna tell everybody what happens to Eleven this season.” David then brought the British actress onto the video stream, where she asked him what he was doing. “I’m so crazy,” David replied. “I shouldn’t be doing this.”

Millie replied, “Get off of Live and go back to work!” to which David then joked, “I’m getting fired.” The pair, along with their other cast mates, are currently filming season four of the hit Netflix show, after production shut down in 2020 amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

In season 4, the Stranger Things kids will be crossing paths with all-new characters and enemies. Netflix has already announced a whopping 8 new cast members, however fans will have to wait a little longer. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic delay, it’s likely the show won’t premiere a new season until 2022.

Kaia Gerber tried the trend when she rocked a Brandy Melville Skylar Tank in Washed Blue that was cropped with a high neck & styled it with a pair of high-waisted baggy blue jeans, Vans Authentic Sneakers in White, Lexxola Damien Black-Orange Sunglasses, & a Celine Ava Bag in Tan.

The material is comfortable and breathable. I put it to the test this week during my training sessions and they kept shape. 10/10.” Meanwhile, another shopper raved, “I was really pleased with how these shirts turned out. At first I was a little nervous they wouldn’t fit, but they did. They’re a bit smaller in the armholes than I’d like, but that’s more because of my build than anything else. Love the stretchy material and can’t wait to wear them while rock climbing! Wish there were more colors to choose from. Would love some bright colors.”

Twenty one pilots – Shy Away

When I get home
You better not be there
We’re placin’ bets you won’t
Shed your modesty
And the only thing to leave behind
Is your own skin on the floor

[Chorus:]
Don’t you shy away (Ah-ah-ah)
Manifest a ceiling
When you shy away (Ah-ah-ah)
Searchin’ for that feelin’
Just like an “I love you” (Ooh, ooh)
That isn’t words (Ooh, ooh)
Like a song he wrote, that’s never heard (Ah-ah-ah)
Don’t you (Ssh)

When you get home
You barely recognize the pictures
They put in a frame

‘Cause you shed your modеsty
Don’t circle the track
Take what you havе
and leave your skin on the floor

[Chorus:]
Don’t you shy away (Ah-ah-ah)
Manifest a ceiling
When you shy away (Ah-ah-ah)
Searchin’ for that feelin’
Just like an “I love you” (Ooh, ooh)
That isn’t words (Ooh, ooh)
Like a song he wrote (Ah-ah-ah)
That’s never heard

When I get home
Boy, you better not be there
You’re long gone

You shed your modesty
Don’t circle the track
Just break the cycle in half
and leave your skin on the floor

[Chorus:]
Don’t you shy away (Ah-ah-ah)
Manifest a ceiling
When you shy away (Ah-ah-ah)
Searchin’ for that feelin’
Just like an “I love you” (Ooh, ooh)
That isn’t words (Ooh, ooh)
Like a song he wrote (Ah-ah-ah)
That’s never heard
That’s never heard (Ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah)

An “I love you”
That isn’t words
Like a song he wrote
That’s never heard
Don’t you shy away
