Yesterday we learned the joyous news that pop star Christina Aguilera and fiancé Matthew Rutler welcomed the birth of their first child together (Xtina‘s second child overall, she had her son Max Liron with ex-husband Jordan Bratman), which we learned earlier this year was a baby girl. Late last night, Xtina updated her official Twitter profile for the first time after she birthed her baby to let the world in on the name she and Matt gave to their daughter. The name is an apt one, I think, as you will see below. More »
There’s so much wrong with what’s happening in Ferguson, Missouri right now, I don’t know where to begin. I stayed up following Twitter, just retweeting and posting on Facebook some of the horrors I was seeing—like kids getting tear gassed, and reporters being threatened by cops. The National Guard has been called in, and I have no idea what’s going to happen next. I’m just grateful that we have people like Melissa Harris-Perry who are not going to let the trend of killing black men go unnoticed. For anyone who does not understand the relationship between the black community and the police, this sums it up.
It’s also interesting to note that the KKK—which still exists—is now raising money for the cop who killed Michael Brown. Of course, the cop and his family have nothing to do with this.

Remember way back when, right after Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa had their baby? And I was all, impatiently waiting to see that first picture of baby Sebastian? Well, at least I had hope back then. As far as Kerry Washington‘s baby girl goes, I have no hope. And from the little bit that I know about some forms of philosophical thought, this might actually be a good thing—to have absolutely no expectations of when we met lay eyes on the one they call Isabelle. Anyway, at least we’ve got a few Scandal stars who are coming forward with deets. Click inside for more!
Maybe it’s the head tattoo, maybe it’s everything about her persona, but it’s really hard for me to picture Kelly Osbourne crying over anything. I’m sure she has cried before, I just can’t imagine that it happens very often, right? Well, the Fashion Police star is opening up about a particular experience that left her in tears. Reading about this I defintely had one of those, “Celebs—they’re just like all of us” moments. Click inside for more!
Let me tell you—I was all prepared to roll my eyes at yet another Beyoncé/Jay Z whatever, but this is different. I don’t know who had the brilliant idea for Bey to sing Bang Bang (which I will always and forever associate with Kill Bill), but it opens up the trailer and it’s perfection. The rest of this just looks super-dope. Not all of us can be Trent, so we’ll have to settle for the HBO special. I’m personally psyched to experience On The Run from my home. Will you be tuning in?
Not too long ago, Christina Aguilera was in the same position as the epic birthday cake version of herself that we saw at her baby shower. The pop star has finally popped, and welcomed a baby girl. If she’s anything like Fergie, she’ll be making out with baby girl in no time, LOL. We don’t have a lot of details about the little one, but I suspect mommy and baby are resting right now.

Trent sent me this article right before he went on his run, and the headline had me cracking up. I feel like this conversation always comes up—is it okay to kiss your kids on the mouth? Now, I have a friend who finds it incredibly weird… we’ll see what she does when she has her first baby. And while I’m okay with mouth-to-mouth smooches, I cannot say that I’ve ever actively french-kissed one of my kids, LOL.

I want to start off this week’s YATNB with another question: is there a big difference between a death by suicide, or a death by drug overdose? I found this photo of Philip Seymour Hoffman and Robin Williams from the movie Patch Adams and, of course, it has a whole new meaning now. I got to thinking about both actors and how I didn’t feel any differently about Williams‘ passing than I did Hoffman‘s. That is to say, I thought that they were both struggling with things, and both were unable to get the help they needed to survive, in the end. Drug abuse is obviously different from depression, but I think the two are related in that we all find a means of dealing with our mental health issues—some of us turn to drugs, some of us take our own lives, some of us seek therapy, or bury ourselves in work, or cause ourselves physical harm, or cause others harm. There are, obviously, healthier ways to deal with the issues, but we all find some way to “deal.” I feel like mental health is at the beginning of so many of these problems, and I wonder if we need to keep creating more spaces to discuss this stuff.

Last week my beloved Marion Cotillard made her return to the red carpet, and all was right in the world. This week, it’s all about Taylor Swift‘s hair, and that gorgeous white dress Naya Rivera rocked for no particular reason. Alexa Chung, Kate Mara, and Ciara also rocked some great looks… but we really need to discuss Heidi Klum‘s blue dress. Um. Your thoughts?!

Listen, I know cute kids when I see them (and give birth to them), and Jessica Simpson has really outdone herself. Her Instagram account recently became baby fever central—as she and all of her friends seem to be popping out babies all over the place. Simpson took to Instagram to share the cutest “Good Night” photo of herself with Ace and Maxwell, and I’m kind of in love. Click inside for more!
