Some women would rather put in the work in the gym for fantastic results. While people like Cardi B can't wait to book her next BBL surgery and tummy tuck.

Halle, 22, and her big sister Chloe, 24, are former child stars who gained fame after signing with Beyonce's Parkwood Entertainment. They released their debut EP Sugar Symphony in 2016.

In 2018, Halle starred in the TV series Grown-ish, before she was cast as Ariel in the live-action film The Little Mermaid, set for global release in theaters on May 26, 2023.

Halle and her rapper boyfriend, DDG, made their red carpet debut at the 2022 BET Awards in Los Angeles recently.

Friends warned her to focus on her career, since she is on the verge of superstardom when The Little Mermaid is released next year. But she didn't listen.

Shortly after their public debut as a couple, DDG was arrested on a felony gun charge in Los Angeles.

It's safe to say that Halle's relationships with thug rappers will be her downfall. Just ask Monica.


Ciara and her husband Russell Wilson were among the stars shining brightly at the Serpentine Summer Evening Party in London, England on Thursday.

The American power couple joined Anna Wintour and 21-year-old model Iris Law, daughter of British actor Jude Law, among others.


Ciara wore a neon orange cutout halter dress from her clothing line. She completed her outfit with a pair of strappy Jimmy Choo sandals.


Ciara wore her long human hair wig parted down the middle and flowing down her back accentuating her newly acquired BBL. Rumor has it that Russell approved Ciara's BBL before she went under the knife.


The mom-of-three and her hubby celebrated her new record deal with Republic Records and Uptown Records through her own label imprint, Beauty Marks Entertainment.


Other invited guests included actress Tessa Thompson (pictured), Bianca Jagger, Elon Musk's ex-wife Talulah Riley, and British actor Thomas Brodie-Sangster (pictured below).


The annual Serpentine Summer Party, hosted by publishing magnate Michael Bloomberg, is one of the hottest tickets on London's summer social calendar.

Only bold names are invited to rub elbows with long money and new money stars and glitterati of British and American high societies.

A New York City Department of Corrections captain died after undergoing a Brazilian butt lift in the Dominican Republic.

49-year-old Tandra Bowser-Williams, a corrections captain at Rikers Island Jail, suffered a massive stroke just days after undergoing BBL surgery performed by a doctor who was indicted in NY for practicing without a license.

Bowser-Williams reportedly flew to Santo Domingo to receive a fat transfer surgery from plastic surgeon Dr. Hector Cabral, on May 13.

Dr. Cabral was previously indicted in New York in March 2011 on 10 counts of operating without a medical license, fraud and conspiracy charges.

He was accused of charging patients for consultations at med spas and beauty parlors in New York before luring unsuspecting patients to the Dominican Republic for surgery at bargain prices.

Dr. Cabral worked out of a clinic in Santo Domingo, where he operated on patients without a license.

Rapper Cardi B claimed she had a bad feeling after she booked an appointment for BBL surgery with Dr. Cabral. She canceled the surgery: "I had a feeling and I did it with another doctor," she said.

Bowser-Williams' husband, Curtis Williams, told the N.Y. Daily News that his wife was aware of Dr. Cabral's indictment, but she trusted him anyway.

"Her exact words to me were, 'you're gonna love Dr. Cabral's work.' I didn't care one way or another. I accepted my wife the way she was," he told the Daily News.

Williams said he received an urgent call from a nurse at a clinic where his wife had been transferred after suffering a stroke. She told Williams that his wife had a stroke.

"They brought my wife out of the medically induced coma so she could unlock her phone, so that's how she was able to get in touch with me," he said.

"I heard my wife in the background, and she was complaining about her stomach and her butt."

He said she died before he could arrive in Santo Domingo to be by her side.

Williams said Dr. Cabral paid for his plane ticket to the Dominican Republic as well as his wife's embalming at a local funeral home.

"Everybody is distraught. She was the heart, the lifeline of the family. The heartbeat," Williams said.

In 2017, at least four women died during surgeries with Dr. Cabral at the same clinic.

Like mother, like daughter. Jada Pinkett Smith and her 20-year-old daughter Willow Smith considered undergoing Brazilian butt lift (BBL) surgeries.

In a teaser for Wednesday's episode of Red Table Talk on Facebook, Jada, Willow, and Jada's mother Adrienne Banfield-Norris discuss peer pressure to follow risky trends.

Jada, 50, said she once considered following the popular Brazilian butt lift trend after checking out her butt in the mirror.

"I'm glad we're here talking about this today, the BBLs, because I was considering getting one," she said.

"Me too!" said Willow. "I considered getting the tiniest little bit, but then I just got into the gym and got it anyway."

Jada added:

"I told her. I said, 'You want a butt? One thing your mother know how to do is build a butt.' And you built it to the point that people thought you got surgery."

Banfield-Norris, left, touched on the peer pressure that causes young women to risk their lives for inflated butts.

"I just feel like there's always so much more pressure on women to look a certain way," she said.

"You know it's all about youth, so for somebody like me, the struggle has been extremely real. Like I've had botox, then you get to the point where how much you're gonna do, but then it almost becomes addictive."

Madonna denies getting a Brazilian butt lift for her dramatic MTV Video Music Awards appearance on Sunday.

The pop icon's enhanced booty stopped traffic outside the 2021 MTV VMAs, held at the Barclays Center in New York City.

The Queen of Pop made a surprise appearance to open the MTV VMas, where she showed off her firm bubble butt in a one-piece thong bustier and matching cap. The 63-year-old mother-of-6 accessorized her edgy outfit with black fishnet stockings and f-- me pumps.

The Internet exploded as Madonna confidently strut across the stage. Many fans accused the singer of having a BBL done.

Some fans said they could tell she had a BBL done because her legs didn't match her new butt.

Madonna took note of the many discussions about her toned body. Her reps denied she had any work done. Madonna is known to work out intensely in the gym.

She posted a photo gallery of her VMAs appearance, along with the caption: "And they said I wouldn't last..... #vmas2021."

In 2019 she also denied having surgery.

One of her trainers, Craig Smith told Daily Mail Australia that Madonna works out strenuously:

"I vary the workouts every single day. She does a combination of circuit training, interval training, and resistance training. Dance is obviously a huge part of that."

She also follows a strict macrobiotic vegetarian diet to decrease her body fat.
