At the time she was in the middle of a six-month prescription for Accutane, a prescription acne medication which can cause serious complications in pregnancy.

 

She decided to terminate the pregnancy, but admits in her new memoir “Unbreak My Heart” that she would’ve have come to the same conclusion even if she weren’t on the medication. The singer admits her decision was caused more by the refusal to inconvenience her lifestyle than any fear that her fetus had been harmed. {Source}

UPDATE: The FULL video is now posted below. Jay and Solange get into it for a good 3 and a half minutes. You’ll notice that Bey DOES say some words to Jay. The plot thickens!!

You know, it’s hard to mess with all of the connections that TMZ has, when TMZ is on the job. Yeah, sometimes they post rumors and run with it, but when they have video…SMH. TMZ just posted a video surveillance of Beyoncé , Jay Z and Solange, plus a bodyguard (probably Julius) entering an elevator as they were leaving the MET Gala.  I know know WHAT Jay did or said to Solange but that Dirty South comes RIGHT out of her and she starts swinging and kicking him!

Beyoncé  remains calm and stands in the background, letting the two work it out and making sure her dress doesn’t get ripped. At one point, it seems that she just barely misses getting hit by Solange‘s Gold clutch.  I don’t know WHAT the heck happened here but woo woo woo.  Check out the video:

Kanye West doesn’t always tweet, but when he does, it’s either a rant or something lovely. This time, it’s the latter. Early Sunday morning, Kanye posted a picture on Twitter of the sun peeking through the clouds with the caption “hi Mom.” Two little words and you can just feel the sadness and love from that tweet.

Oh Smith family. You either love em, or hate em or just think they’re plain weird.  Will and Jada have gotten into flack in the past a lot about their parenting techniques and this time is no different.  The picture of Willow Smith laying on a bed with shirtless 20 year old actor Moises Arias has been circling the internet. A lot of people think the picture is sexually suggestive and question Willow‘s guidance by her parents. The good folks over at TMZ caught up with Jada outside of an airport yesterday to hear her view on it.

Since my Mavericks are out, I really hope this will be the year of OKC Thunder. It’s something about the humility of Kevin Durant that makes him one of my favorite players. During his acceptance speech after winning MVP for the 2013-14 NBA season, Durant is overcome with emotions as he thanks his teammates, his coach, and most importantly his mother, Wanda Pratt.

He wins the honor overwhelmingly with 119 first place votes; to put this in perspective LeBron James comes in second with six first place votes.
