The pressure in Hollywood to snap back after giving birth is high, and Evelyn Lozada, 38, is queen of the snap back. Known for her abs after already giving birth to her oldest, Shaniece, the reality star is back in the gym just three weeks after giving birth to baby Carl Jr.
Initially she gave herself 30 days to get back in shape, but has now extended the time to a 60-Day challenge. Take your time Evelyn and enjoy your baby, although clearly you can see from these pics that it won’t take long for Ev to get her post-baby body back on track.

Chris Brown released the visuals for his new song Don’t Be Gone Too Long featuring the beautiful voice of Ariana Grande. First off, I love this video, it’s simple, and it shows how talented this boy really is. Just wish he could get his personal ish together. Can’t help but think he’s also sending a message to a certain you know who. If only he could express his emotions in the same control manner that he expresses himself in dance.
Check out the video below, and let me know what you think:
I should save this post for my Woman Crush Wednesday #WCW because Jill Scott is out her looking FINE (F-A-H-N). The singer reportedly has lost over 63 lbs by changing her diet, and exercising with trainer Scott Parker. 60 minutes of cardio and strength training three times a week has gotten Jill Scott a new waistline. The singer’s motivation is her son, Jett.
There’s a world of discovery in his eyes and I want to be around to enjoy it!
You should already know from reading this blog how much I love me some Jill Scott; she’s my favorite contemporary artist. That beautiful smile, and now this body:
Don’t worry, Jilly does not plan on getting too thin in the waist. She embraces her curves, and says, “I’ll never be a stick figure.” More pics of Jill in all black at the UNCF below:
I just had to share this video, which pretty much speaks for itself. Young black male students from Illinois’ Central High School are trying to change the negative stereotypes of young black men with this video Suit & Tie in the 217. These babies are dressed in their finest to project a counter image of black teen sagging to their knees, wearing oversize jerseys and hoodies.
The students used in this video are successful student scholars, athletes, and representatives for our schools. They are National Honor Society members, Honor Roll members, future collegiate athletes, and future college students at several Big Ten Universities. They are also Eagle Scouts, military personnel, and poets. They are class of 2014 and 2015.

Pharrell has some interesting words and an interesting perspective on the backlash he’s received regarding the cover art for his album G I R L which did not feature any women with night-shade skin. Pharrell sits down for an emotional and very revealing interview with Oprah for Oprah Prime, and the topic of the album cover comes up, as well as the lyrics to Blurred Lines which have been tagged as “misogynist”, and IMO rightfully so. Now Pharrell is one of my favorite people, I know he hates defending his art, but his words to Oprah suggests that he doesn’t understand the depth of the arguments behind the backlash.
On the topic of dark skinned women not appearing on the artwork for the album entitled, G I R L, Pharrell suggests their is a new black mentality and black women who are insecure should find love in the mirror and not on the cover of albums or magazines. Dayum!
