Ever since the advent of the #MeToo movement throughout entertainment, politics and even corporate America, women from all occupations and all walks of life even the few who have ventured into the male-dominated world of tattoo art.

Reality star Young Bae of VH1’s Black Ink says she’s dealt with a lot of sexual harassment and claims she’s even been told, “If wanna learn to tattoo you have to suck my dick.” Bae alleges that it’s a commonality for female tattoo artists and says she’ll be the one to stand up for the lady tatters.

Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna’s fight in court continues.

As indicated by reports on Tuesday, Kardashian requested to lower his $20,000 child support payments to his ex-fiance Black Chyna for their baby girl, Dream Kardashian.

As per The Blast, who broke the news, the reality star claims he can’t afford to pay Chyna $20,000 a month and is requesting an adjustment. He likewise claims that Chyna’s filing of a domestic violence report against him has really hurt his pockets, taking note of that he appeared on Keeping Up With the Kardashians due to emotional trauma and scrutiny from the media.

Meanwhile, TMZ reports that Rob going to court to reduce his child support payments has been in the works for about a year. The outlet asserts that he at first consented to pay such a high amount in child support in exchange for joint custody and the domestic violence charges against him dropped. Which she did in September so it’s time for the payments to be lowered.

Chyna’s lawyer, Lisa Bloom, hit back at Rob Kardashian on Tuesday in an announcement to ET.

“We believe Rob Kardashian has deliberately retreated from social media to reduce his income so that he can pay less child support,” the statement reads. “Poor little rich boy. What kind of father doesn’t want to support his own baby?”

“Rob and Kris Jenner have also been dodging their depositions,” Bloom continued to claim. “They can run, but they can’t hide. Like all other litigants and witnesses, eventually they will have to show up and answer questions about where all of Rob’s money has gone. We’ll get a court order requiring them to come to my office and answer questions under oath if necessary. In the meantime, Blac Chyna continues to work hard as a single mother supporting her children, as she has always done, whether Rob chooses to help or not.”

In an Instagram post, Fenty Beauty model Duckie Thot revealed that she was in a car accident 48 hours before making her debut in the Victoria Secret Fashion show.

She begins her caption, “Firstly, I’d like to apologize for posting a little late- I had to take some time for myself to process the week, 48 hours before the VS Fashion Show, I got into a car accident on my way to a workout session. Thankfully I walked away without a starch.”

Duckie, real name, Nyadak Thot then went on to say that the car accident opened her eyes to a few things, “the incident put a few things into perspective for me, no matter how hard you’ve worked for something or how deserving you may feel, it can easily be taken away from you.”

The 22-year also praised God for keeping her safe,  “God was watching over me in that car and he carried me through Thursday, I couldn’t have done it without him. I’m grateful and thankful for his support & infinite love.”

She also challenged her “followers to pursue your dreams, no matter how big they may seem. If you don’t try to use your gift to share it with others it will terrify you.”
Thot was first discovered on the eighth cycle of Australia’s Next Top Model finishing off in third place and she has also ripped the runway at the Yeezy S/S 17 show. The Victoria Secret Show will air December 2, 2018.

firstly, I’d like to apologize for posting a little late- I had to take sometime for myself to process the week. 48 hours before the VS fashion show, I got into a car accident on my way to a workout session. Thankfully, I walked away without a scratch. The incident put a few things into perspective for me; no matter how hard you’ve worked for something or how deserving you may feel, it can easily be taken away. I’ve dreamed of walking for @victoriassecret for as long as I can remember- watching women who inspired me year after year, I someday saw myself doing the same thing. God was watching over me in that car and he carried me through Thursday, I couldn’t have done it without Him. I’m grateful and thankful for His support & infinite love. I challenge all of my followers to pursue your dreams, no matter how big they may seem! If you don’t try to use your gift to share it with others, it’ll terrify you. My utmost respect to all the beautiful women I got to walk alongside- I felt empowered by every single one of you. To my sister @leomieanderson I am grateful for your words of encouragement and happy we got to share this moment together. All my love to #Ed @monica.mitro @10magazine @johndavidpfeiffer and the entire VS team for seeing me. It’s been a true honor to do this show, I am so blessed to have had this moment. Lastly, I’d like to thank my guardian angel, my little sister Sarah- every step I took was for you. 👼🏿 💕

Michelle Obama graces the cover Elle Magazine for the December issue. The former First Lady was interviewed by Oprah Winfrey and talks about her marriage, Trump and much more.

With her glowing smile of the cover,  the interview she had with Oprah Winfrey has become a must-read for those who are interested with Mrs. Obama’s book. With a new book detailing her journey in Becoming, which is out today, Winfrey gets a head start on discussing what will be inside.

Her spouse, Barack Obama tells Oprah about their marriage about being in love is different no matter what the struggle is and much more. It was an important part of her journey that she is becoming by writing and sharing her story of this book. Make sure you get the memoir that will be out everywhere today.

Living in the White House for eight years, @MichelleObama had staffers providing everything she could have possibly needed, except for time. "What I came to realize is that there was absolutely no time to reflect in the White House,” she tells @oprah for ELLE’s cover interview. “We moved at such a breakneck pace from the moment we walked in those doors until the moment we left. It was day in and day out because we, Barack and I, really felt like we had an obligation to get a lot done.”⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Now, with time to process two terms in office—a historic run of accomplishments and struggles—Obama has released her highly anticipated memoir, “Becoming.” Ahead of her book release, the former FLOTUS gets real about her marriage to Barack, the threats made against her children, and life after the White House.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ELLE December 2018 credits:⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Editor-in-chief: @ninagarcia⁣⁣⁣⁣ Photographer: @millermobley⁣⁣ Stylist: @meredithkoop⁣⁣ Hair: @yenedamtew⁣⁣ Makeup: @carlraymua⁣⁣ Wearing: @Dior Chief photography director: @alixbcampbell

It was more like a premeditated plan than her shooting anything at the Creed II star.

During Nicki Minaj’s acceptance speech last night at the E! People’s Choice Awards, she couldn’t help but extend her open R-rated invitation out to actor Michael B. Jordan, who the Pink Print rapper has made known she’s been crushin’ on for a while.

Nicki very confidently announces to the audience, “Shout-out to Donatella Versace for custom-making this outfit for me and shout-out to Michael B. Jordan because he’s going to be taking it off of me tonight.”

California resident Rebecca Hackett is counting her blessings today after driving through the raging and forceful fires burning in the Malibu area.

Hackett told ABC she was driving down Kanan Road while leaving White Cloud Ranch Friday evening where she keeps her horses and things took a dramatic change.  .

“I felt the strongest wind I ever felt in my life.

Hackett says,”The fire came so quickly. One minute it was calm and then suddenly they were on top of us,” Rebecca Hackett said. “I thought I was going to die.”

Officials fear at least 9 may be dead and a quarter of a million people have been forced from their homes as the fire in the north and two other major fires, Woolsey and Hill in Southern California burned this weekend.  Forecasters say intense winds and low humidity could fuel the blazes and make them spread even farther. The Woolsey Fire is one of two threatening homes in Ventura County and Los Angeles County in Southern California. The two blazes have charred a combined 20,000 acres as of Friday afternoon.

 

Look at Rebecca Hackett’s shocking below video.

 

Our hearts and prayers go out to those California residents battling the dangerous wildfires.

News broke that there was a shooting during the video shoot of a new song with Tekashi 6ix9ine, Nicki Minaj, and Kanye West. Fortunately, the Queen rapper didn’t arrive at the scene yet because a bullet pierced through the room that she was supposed to be in, as per TMZ.

The tabloid reports that Tekashi 6ix9ine was originally supposed to be in the master room, which is the biggest room in the Beverly Hills mansion, but gave it to Nicki the night before. This kind of negates the theory that it was an inside job because then the shooter would’ve had the tip that the rooms were changed.

Now that the $80 million estate is now a crime scene, production has come to a screeching halt. Although Nicki Minaj wasn’t there, Kanye was and left immediately.

Ironically, Kim Kardashian also experienced a life scare last night. With only an hour to spare, she packed and evacuated her Calabasas home with their children after a fire erupted.

The rappers have yet to comment on the incident, but on a lighter note, no one was hurt.

Former First Lady Michelle Obama is ready to share her story with the world on her Becoming tour, which will support her book. Before it is available to the public, Mrs. Obama met with Robin Roberts for an ABC News special and gave a preview of her journey by disclosing having a miscarriage 20 years ago.

During the clip, Mrs. Obama would detail how it made her feel and would detail she conceived Sasha and Malia Obama by In Vitro Fertilization.

“I felt lost and alone and I felt like I failed, because I didn’t know how common miscarriages were because we don’t talk about them. We sit in our own pain, thinking that somehow we’re broken,” Mrs. Obama shared.

“I think it’s the worst thing that we do to each other as women, not share the truth about our bodies and how they work, and how they don’t work.”

During her time with Roberts, Michelle Obama will go on to speak on what she will never forgive President Trump for, maintaining her marriage with President Obama and more.

The full interview will air Sunday at 9 p.m. on ABC, a preview is available below.

The nation is trying to wrap their minds around the senseless shooting at the Borderline bar in Thousand Oaks. The tragedy hit close to home as one of the victims is related to millennial darlings, Tia and Tamera Mowry from the hit 90s series, Sister, Sister.

The 18-year-old niece of Tamera Mowry-Housely and her husband Adam was one of the 12 left dead late Wednesday evening in the California shooting.

In a  statement issued to USA TODAY on behalf of family, the couple expressed their pain:

“Our hearts are broken. We just learned that our niece Alaina was one of the victims of last night’s shooting at Borderline bar in Thousand Oaks,” the couple stated via their joint representative, Chantal Artur. “Alaina was an incredible young woman with so much life ahead of her and we are devastated that her life was cut short in this manner. We thank everyone for your prayers and ask for privacy at this time.”

Our prayers go out to all those impacted by this senseless gun violence.

In an announcement released this morning, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has been hospitalized.

On Wednesday night, the 85-year-old fell in her Supreme Court office. Her staff made sure she was ok and arranged for her to be taken to her home safely. However, throughout the night, she reported that she was experiencing some “discomfort” and was taken to George Washington Hospital. Once there, doctors were able to assess that she had three fractured ribs. According to a prepared statement, she was immediately admitted for “observation and treatment.”

Justice Ginsburg at 85 is considered a maverick for her outstanding contribution to women’s and civil rights. Having served for over 25 years (appointed by President Bill Clinton in 1993), this liberal-leaning justice continues to stand up for interests that affect people of color.

She was also the co-founder of the Women’s Rights Project at the ACLU and once said, “Women’s rights are an essential part of the overall human rights agenda, trained on the equal dignity and ability to live in freedom all people should enjoy.”

She was one of only nine women at Harvard Law School in 1956 and “made” the distinguished Harvard Law Review in 1957.   She did not graduate from Harvard and transferred to Columbia Law School where she also made their Review. When she graduated from Columbia in 1959, she tied for first in her class. She was allegedly told while she was a student, that she was taking the seat in the schools that should have gone to a deserving young man.

Needless to say, her life is priceless and that her pursuit of equality during a time where women had no real say in politics and corporate justice, was extraordinary.

While there is a recent documentary on her exceptional life and career entitled RBG, this winter a movie about her life hits the big screen called On The Basis of Sex, detailing her fight for gender equality, representing a young father.

We hope this noble woman recovers speedily and completely.

The former R&B Divas: Atlanta star admitted that she went through a rough patch after her ex-husband divorced her while she was eight months pregnant and her child was battling cancer.

The R&B singer married her new husband, Zachariah Darring, last month in Indianapolis, and says he got her back through thick and thin, unlike Michael Ford, who she says is full of himself.

Congratulations to Keke Wyatt. It’s amazing what a difference a year makes.

Ask any young person you know about Blacks in politics on the national level and you will be hard pressed to find a long list of names. Of course, you will hear President Barack Obama. You might even hear Stacey Abrams on account of her recent campaign or Corey Booker because of his courageous opposition to Brett Kavanaugh during those recent confirmation hearings earlier in the summer. One name that you will most certainly here is Maxine Waters. But you won’t hear it like that with your millennial. You will hear her by a moniker that is chock-full of endearment, love, and trust: Auntie Maxine.

Waters has become beloved by so many because of her unwavering commitment to the civil rights of her people, her unabashed tongue and that look she gives to folk across the aisle that work clearly work her nerves.

During Tuesday’s mid-term election, Rep. Waters claimed an easy win in California’s 43rd Congressional District over Trump support, Omar Navarro. This is not the first time Navarro has challenged and lost to the octogenarian. The GOP keeps trying, but her supporters not only appreciate her raw and honest politics but have rallied to keep her guard against any opposition.

There is a reason for them to protect her and keep her in office: She is positioned to throw a monkey wrench in 45’s wicked scheme to make the rich get richer and to tap dance on the poor.

Auntie Maxine has served for 14 terms as a House member and has been the top Democrat on the banking panel since 2013 when she replaced retired Congressman Barney Frank from Massachusetts. Because of her ranking, she is poised to become the chair of the panel, thanks to the drastic loss that the GOP suffered in the midterm election. This has the GOP, Big Business and Wall Street shaking in their designer boots.

Waters keeps coming at 45’s neck because he is so soft on Big Business and Wall Street.

Calling for an increase in national bank regulations, she clearly is on the opposite side of President Trump and his Capitol Hill allies. Recently, she has released a report with other Dems calling for Wells Fargo to close their doors and pledging to call for higher fines for financial institutions that try to skirt around the law. Waters has said that if she wins (AND SHE DID) and Dems take control of the house, that she would focus on the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and housing reform.

And so… it is safe to say that Wall Street did not rejoice when Auntie Maxine won her race. We will sit back with popcorn to see how all of this plays out.

Just hours before the polls closed during the midterm elections, A-list celebrity Beyoncé Knowles-Carter showed her support for Texas Senate hopeful Beto O’Rourke through a post on Instagram. Following his loss to Republican opponent Ted Cruz, fans sounded off on social media blaming the pop star for not ‘posting sooner’ despite Beto’s numbers showing an increase following her Instagram post.

The Houston native posted a photo of herself dressed in all black wearing a cap that reads “BETO FOR SENATE” around 5 p.m. Eastern.  Critics were upset because Texas polls closed between 8 and 9 p.m. Eastern and felt her posts could have helped sooner.

Her caption read:

“I’m feeling grateful for everyone before me who fought so hard to give us all the right to have a voice. We can’t voice our frustrations and complain about what’s wrong without voting and exercising our power to make it right. We need you. We all need each other, because when we are truly united we are unstoppable. Sending you all love and positivity on this happy voting day!
Every vote counts
Every race matters
Everywhere.!”

Last week, Travis Scott made an appearance at a Beto rally in Houston, delivering a speech encouraging the youth to vote.  But it was Beyonce who was ridiculed for ‘not doing more sooner’ by critics despite the fact that she publicly endorsed a candidate to her 119 million followers.

Ultimately, Beto O’Rourke lost against his Republican opponent Ted Cruz, garnering 48.3 percent of the votes compared to Cruz’s 50.9 percent but the fight is far from over.

 

Did you vote??

Missy “Misdemeanor” Elliott broke history as she is the first female rapper to be nominated for the 2019 Songwriters Hall of Fame grant, the Associated Press reports.

With Hot 100 hits like “Get Ur Freak On” and “Lady Marmalade” featuring Christina Aguilera, Pink, Lil Kim and Mya under her belt, which has all proven to be timeless hits, the Grammy Award-winning writer could be the third rapper to be honored with the prestigious award. She will share the honor with former inductees JAY-Z and Jermaine Dupri.

Missy reported the news on her Twitter and salutes the Songwriters Hall of Fame’s other nominees including Mariah Carey, TLC lyricist Dallas Austin and also Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics.

“I am Humbly Grateful to be nominated with so many other AMAZING writers,” the VA-native wrote. “Congratulations to all of them also.”

On June 13, 2019, six musicians will be enlisted at the Songwriters Hall of Fame’s 50th yearly Induction and Awards Gala in New York City.

Musicians are qualified for the Hall of Fame after writing music for about 20 years. Missy has been a force to be reckoned with ever since joining Devante Swing’s Swing Mob in the 90s. She helped form the late Aaliyah and Ginuwine’s sound, alongside Timbaland’s. After some time, Missy would proceed to work with Destiny’s Child, Whitney Houston, Ciara, and the list goes on.

Missy pushed the points of what it means to be an influencer and create timeless work.

Unbossed!

Tuesday’s election invoked the unbought and unbossed spirit of Shirley Chisholm. Forget Black Girl Magic, nothing that these women did during this election season was hocus-pocusy. They came to their campaigns ready to fight for their people and achieved some historic and pretty amazing goals. While the most trending stories of Black women in this election season swirled around Georgia’s gubernatorial candidate, Stacey Abrams and the many sisters running for congressional seats, few people took note of those big bad mamajamas from Texas.

Known as The #Houston19, the 19 Black women ran for various judicial seats in Harris County and won every single one of their races.

Why is this so important? Harris County is not only the largest county in Houston, but it is the third largest county in the United States. Because it stretches so vast and far across Houston, the people the live in the county are racially, ethnically and culturally diverse. With 41% Latino, 31% white, 19.5% Black, 7% Asian and 1% Native American (according to the 2014 Census) there is no one common cultural point of view. However, what crosses all racial lines is the high percentage of poor people (21% of all children that live in Harris County live below the poverty line), the high infant mortality rate (1,000 die before age one) and the 38% high school drop out rate. If that is not devastating enough, The Harris County Jail Complex is the largest in Texas, and is one of the largest in the nation.

While there are plenty of things in the county (3rd Ward & 5th Ward) that will give caution to tourists, Harris County is also the home of many Hip-Hop and R&B celebs such as Scarface, J. Prince, Mike Jones, Paul Wall, Chamillionaire, DJ Screw, Sauce Walka and Beyoncé who love the town and all that it represents. These women add to the names of notables that rep for area.

These 19 women of color have pledged to serve the community with compassion. Coming from the same places that many of their people that come before them come from, many believe that they will have a more tolerant and empathetic stance on the case they are called to rule.

November 6, 2018 was a historic election night for many reasons, but in particular for the groundbreaking number of victories had by many women of color running for office.

New York had a set of firsts at the federal and state level. NY voters elected Letitia James as New York’s attorney general. James had previously served for a decade as a member of the New York City Council, representing Brooklyn’s 35th Council. According to an in depth report by the New York Times, James victory as the attorney general of New York marked the first time a woman in New York is elected attorney general, the first African-American woman to be elected to statewide office and the first Black person to serve as New York’s attorney general.

More firsts occurred via New York’s voters with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. In her first election at 29, she became the youngest woman elected to Congress with an easy win in New York’s 14th congressional district. Cortez previously stunned the Democratic establishment back in June when she defeated Rep. Joseph Crowley, a 10-term incumbent and chairman for the House Democratic Caucus, in the Democratic primary.

However, the historic firsts were not limited to New York.

Democrat Ayanna Pressley becme Massachusetts’ first black woman elected to Congress. Full of #BlackGirlMagic, Pressley cruised through Tuesday’s general election unopposed. Her victory is one of historical significance for the state of Massachusetts and for the nation.

Ayanna Pressley is Massachusetts’ First Black Woman Elected to Congress

Two Democratic candidates are set to become the first Muslim women to serve in Congress following their election night triumphs. Rashida Tlaib, who ran unopposed, will serve Michigan’s 17th congressional district.  llhan Omar, a former refugee, will represent Minnesota’s 5th congressional district. Omar is also the first Somali-American congresswoman.

Native Americans, Sharice Davids and Deb Haaland, have also clinched a historic women for their community.  The two became the first Native American women to serve in the House of Representatives. Davids (who is also a former MMA fighter) won the race for Kansas’ 3rd congressional district beating incumbent Republican Kevin Yoder, while Haaland won New Mexico’s 1st congressional district.

Congratulations to these and many more of the newly elected officials. We look forward to seeing what these inspiring individuals are able to accomplish in the upcoming months and years in Washington D.C. – they’ve got their work cut out for them for sure.

In a new interview with 60 Minutes Australia, actress and former Playboy model Pamela Anderson shares her thoughts on the ‘Me Too Movement’ and reveals that the entire feminist movement is a bit ‘too much for her’.

Voicing her unpopular opinion, Anderson jumped out the window with her thoughts and opinions on the touchy and sensitive topic. “I think this feminism can go too far. I’m a feminist, but I think that this third wave of feminism is a bore. I think it paralyzes men.” She also commented on the scandal surrounding disgraced film producer Harvey Weinstein. Weinstein has been accused of sexual misconduct by dozens of women. Insinuating the accusations made against Weinstein, the Baywatch actress added, “My mother taught me don’t go to a hotel with a stranger or if someone answers the door in a bathrobe and it’s supposed to be a business meeting, maybe I should go with someone else. I think that some things are just common sense.” Anderson then added jokingly, “Or, if you go in [to a hotel room], get the job.”

Unapologetic for her comments, she maintains her stance standing behind her controversial statements and even added, “I’m Canadian, I’m going to speak my mind. I’m sorry, I’m not politically correct.”

Feminists are already slamming her quotes stating that she is the last person that should speak on the movement.

Do you think Pamela Anderson has a point?

The Spice Girls are reuniting, minus Victoria Beckham.

Emma “Baby Spice” Bunton, Geri “Ginger Spice” Halliwell Horner, Melanie “Mel C” Chisholm and Melanie “Mel B” Brown declared their United Kingdom tour Monday on the official Spice Girls Twitter account.

The four showed up, without “Posh Spice,” Victoria Beckham, in a parody video sharing the news of the tour. They will be joined by special guest, Jess Glynne.

The girl group split in 1998 amid becoming one of the UK’s biggest girl groups ever.

Bunton prodded a Spice Girls reunion on Monday. The vocalist burst into chuckling on her Heart Radio breakfast show and declined to answer inquiries regarding whether Spice Girls were reuniting.

Co-host Jamie Theakston inquired as to whether reports of a reunion tour were true, and Bunton, at last, gave in and stated: “Everything would be announced on social media at 15:00 GMT (10 a.m. ET). I’m just excited, I want it out there.”

The Sun newspaper was the first to report that they’re reuniting for a tour without Posh Spice. On Monday the Spice Girls additionally entered the Twittersphere and persuaded a few fans they were currently a foursome.

The @spicegirls account was created in October and the photograph only shows Bunton, Halliwell Horner, Chisholm and Brown. The first tweet stated, “Our broadcast continues shortly… #FriendshipNeverEnds.”

There has been speculation about the girl group reuniting in the past. Back in February, Mel B appeared on The Real and sparked speculation that they would be performing at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding. However, that never happened.

Fans have been waiting for this moment ever since images of the ladies surfaced having lunch at Halliwell Horner’s home.
