Logic signs to Twitch… Tamar Braxton ‘awake and alert’… Rihanna’s skin line is gender inclusive… Nicki Minaj is pregnant… and Kanye West goes on Twitter rant
Logic’s final album “No Pressure” will drop on Friday. And seriously, that’s it. At the age of 30, Logic recently announced he’s retiring from music to focus on his family. But then yesterday it was announced that Logic just signed a seven-figure deal with Twitch! Logic’s channel will include a mixture of in-studio sessions, special guests, AMA style formats, and gaming. In making the announcement, Logic said, “I’m not this rapper guy, man. I’m just a nerd. I love video games. I’m blessed enough to have millions of fans and followers. So it is a great partnership…I’m going to bring new eyes to their service, they’re going to bring new money to my bank account, and — I’m just kidding.”
I tried to get an update on Tamar Braxton’s health yesterday and couldn’t find anything. This morning Page Six is reporting that she’s awake and alert after her suicide attempt last week, and she’s been transferred from the hospital “to another facility for further evaluation and treatment.” Their source says Tamar has been visited by her sisters, Towanda, Trina and Traci, and celebrities such as Viola Davis, Nene Leakes, and Tiny Harris have been showing their support online.
At the beginning of the year, Rihanna and her billionaire boyfriend Hassan Jameel broke up and almost immediately there were rumors she was hooking up with A$AP Rocky. Well, guess who’s starring in Rihanna’s first ad campaign for her new Fenty Skin skincare line? A$AP isn’t the only man in the promo video. Lil Nas X also pops up, along with some other male models. Rihanna said she wanted everyone to know that her skincare line is “for my fellas too.” Look for Fenty Skin on July 31.
With surprise guests like @asvpxrocky and @LilNasX, @fentyskin’s latest campaign video has revealed that its products will cater to both women and men.https://t.co/w4GmheXgXb— HYPEBAE (@hypebae) July 20, 2020
A few months ago, there were rumors that Nicki Minaj and Kenneth “Zoo” Petty were expecting a baby, but now it is CONFIRMED. Nicki made the announcement and showed off her swollen belly in a photo shoot, complete with an over-the-top bra and platform heels covered in pearls. The designer behind the bra is Lacey Dalmonte. She told Page Six Style that she was visiting family in Michigan when she got an email from Nicki’s stylist asking if she could keep a secret and make this crazy idea work. She was told, “The concept was old-school Nicki, very Harajuku.” But otherwise, he told Lacey she could do whatever she wanted. So she jumped on a plane back to LA, sketching the whole way. When she landed, Lacey began assembling this bra using pacifier, rattle and baby bottle charms and Swarovski crystals. And since her mannequin wasn’t the right proportions and she wasn’t able to fit the bra on Nicki, Lacey used her own DDDs to get the perfect fit!
Pound the alarm, Nicki Minaj is pregnant!! She and her husband Kenneth Petty are expecting their first child together. https://t.co/wme2PObfhE pic.twitter.com/bWZkkzA9Hv— E! News (@enews) July 20, 2020
Kanye West went on a Twitter rant last night. Just as he’d predicted, Kim wasn’t happy with Kanye’s speech at a presidential campaign rally in SC on Sunday. Among his two dozen or so tweets last night, Kanye posted, “Kim was trying to fly to Wyoming with a doctor to lock me up like on the movie Get Out because I cried about saving my daughters life yesterday.” He added, “Everybody knows the movie get out is about me.” Kanye also called out his mother-in-law Kris Jenner for selling Kim’s sex tape with Ray J and for brokering the deal to have Kim pose for Playboy in 2007, saying, “I put my life on my God that Norths mom would never photograph her doing playboy and that’s on God I’m at the ranch … come and get me.” He also posted a screenshot of a text to Kris that said, “This is Ye. You ready to talk now or are you still avoiding my calls (?)” He went on to call out Anna Wintour, Shia LaBeouf, Drake, NBC and E! before deleting most of the tweets. As of this morning, Kanye left up a photo of him with his four kids, captioning it, “West children will never do playboy west.” His final tweets of the night were, “Ima focus on the music now,” followed by the announcement that his new album “DONDA” comes out this Friday, along with the titles of its 12 songs.
