Though she was only carrying one kid, Amber Rose looked like she was eating for all seven of the dwarfs during her pregnancy. Yes, I’m a horrible jackass for saying that. Sure, as an ex-fatty myself I ought to know better. But look, mama was big, ya feel me?
In any event, three months after the birth of her son with Wiz Khalifa, Amber Rose says she’s working hard to drop the pounds. Speaking with E! News, Amber said, ”I have a really good personal trainer. Her name is Jeanette Jenkins. Yeah, I work out every day.” That includes working out “an hour and a half a day.”
If you recall, Amber’s body used to be everything in life and then some.
Amber went on to say, “It’s hard to get off baby weight. It’s a different kind of weight because for nine months you stretch your stomach out and then it’s hard to get that back. I’m working on it. I lost like thirty-some pounds already.” Gon’ girl.
So just how big did Amber get? “I was 202 pounds when I had my son. But I’m tall, so it didn’t look like it,” Amber explained.
Well, you saw how I started this post so you can imagine how I feel about that statement.
In any event, best of luck to you on getting back into fighting shape, Amber.
Quick question: Does anyone want to hear more music from Will Smith again? I’m leaning towards a “no,” but Kanye West is ready for The Fresh Prince’s return.
While promoting his new film After Earth, Willow’s pappy says he’s been spent some time in the studio with the sire of Kim Kardashian’s first born. Will revealed to Hip Hollywood:
“I been messing around with Kanye. We went into the studio a couple times, so I might get the bug. I’m not going to do it unless I’m truly inspired, but Kanye’s been pushing me a little bit.”
Of course Kanye is responsible for putting these thoughts into Will’s mind.
I don’t know, y’all. After LL Cool J’s Robert E. Lee ass kissing anthem “Accidental Racist,” I now fear that every aging rapper who’s crossed over to Hollywood might need to stay exactly where they are.
Yes, “Summertime” will always be great. Shoot, I’ll even give you “boom, boom, shake-shake the room.” Still, it’s been a long time since those and “Men In Black” and I’m not sure I want to hear another graying man rapping lazily about rich he is. After all, we’ve still got Uncle Hov.
Check the interview below:
Shady queen and soulful brown liquor loving singer K. Michelle has released “V.S.O.P.” — the first single off her forthcoming debut album Rebellious Soul. The track was produced by Pop & Oak and reportedly samples Debra Laws’ 1981 hit “Very Special.”
Those of you into Teddy Pendergrass and old man drinks ought to know that the track’s name is a nod to Very Special Old Pale cognac. I mean, comparing your love to a good grade of booze sounds beautiful to me.
So clearly I love it, and pray to God that Atlantic Records, who signed K. Michelle, doesn’t end up adding a rapper to the song for the sake of trying to secure more spins on the radio.
Believe it or not, R&B has been doing quite well this year. Mario has a hot new single; The-Dream is coming back strong; Fantasia’s new music is up to par; Chrisette Michele is out here representing for the folks with actually talent; Tamar Braxton is releasing nice songs (albeit songs that song like reworked Keyshia Cole tracks). And hell, even Chris Brown took a break from techno to release the lovely “Fine China.”
Applaud R&B, y’all. The fans needed this. As for Ms. Memphis, you can look forward to K. Michelle’s Rebellious Soul being released on July 20. I plan to buy it and a bottle of her K’s good friend, Mr. Jack Daniels.
