Check out this sexy mama! Christina celebrates her pregnancy in the January issue of Marie Claire. She dishes about her baby boy, marriage and exciting plans for the future. When asked why she kept the baby news quiet, Christina stated:

"I didn't want to make the audience uncomfortable, like, `Pregnant lady onstage! Is she going to be OK?' But I had to announce it to my band and my dancers, because I wanted to make sure they had my back,"

Music News: 50 Understands Kanye's Grief


Losing a mother is never easy; especially when you shared a bond like Kanye did with his mother. 50 Cent actually seems (notice I said seems) very sympathetic to Kanye during this difficult time even though they shared a small beef over album sales earlier this year. When asked if he any words on the topic, he stated,

"That's really an unfortunate situation and I hope he can work his way through it..."It's good to see him actually touring: You can work your way back into a comfortable space where you can deal with those situations."

Work your way through it? 50 that sounds kinda heartless to ME.

Music News: Ne-Yo had to Double Back


Anyone who knows ME, knows I'm a HUGE Ne-Yo fan. When I heard that he had been added to R. Kelly's Double Up tour, my heart thumped with joy. Unfortunately, it seems that I have celebrated prematurely. According to the latest reports, Ne-Yo has been dropped from the Double Up tour due to some contractual issues. When asked about his dismal, here's what Ne-Yo had to say,

"I am disappointed that I won't be able to perform for my fans. I love being on stage in front of fans because of the immediate feedback you get... You know right away if they are feeling you; and they were really feeling our show."

Ne-Yo we are dissapointed too. I hope these matters can be resolved because I need my Sexy Love.

Retail News: Lululemon Going Sour?

Earlier this week retail yoga giant, Lululemon, was called to the carpet regarding the contents of some its products. Infused with seaweed, some of Lulu's products supposedly "release marine amino acids, minerals and vitamins into the skin upon contact with moisture." However, based on tests performed by an independent lab, none of these fabrics contain any traces of seaweed and many consumers feel slighted. Lululemon's prices are alot higher than their competition so I expect their products to be held to higher standard. When I hear this kind of news, it really makes me wonder, "Is a pair of yoga pants really worth $100?" You be the judge.

Music News: TI Speaks Out & RIP Donda West

AOL Images

For those who follow hip-hop news, you are well aware of TI's recent run in with the law. Currently on house arrest, he released his first video statement since it all went down. He maintains his innocence and encourages us all to hold on for the bumpy ride. I honestly hope everything I've been hearing in the news is alot of media hype because the streets needs it's savior. Stay tuned...

AP Wire

Kanye lost his mother last weekend and the reports are pouring in regarding her cause of death. The most recent report states that she died due to complications during a recent plastic surgery operation (tummy tuck and breast reduction). Kanye and his mother were extremely close so I understand the degree of grief he must feel. My prayers are extended to the West family during this time of grief.

Monday Madness: Kim Kardashian

For the little I've caught of Kim's show, I must say that her mom is something else. I've never seen a mother so happy to prostitute her daughter out to the highest bidder. Even when Kim objects, her mom just keeps pressing on in the name of the almighty dollar. Sexy tape syndication, playboy covers, what's next? Maybe Kim'll headline at the Moonlight Bunny Ranch...
