Kelly Rowland is expecting her second child with her husband Tim Weatherspoon.

The former Destiny's Child singer told Women's Health magazine that she and Weatherspoon had discussed potentially having another child when the Covid-19 pandemic happened, at which point they decided to, "see what happens".

Kelly is already mother to 5-year-old son Titan Weatherspoon.

The 39-year-old added that she was nervous about sharing her happy news considering the high-risk of having a baby while pushing 40.

She is also concerned about the fading coronavirus pandemic and the upcoming U.S. presidential election. "But you still want to remind people that life is important. And being able to have a child," she told Women's Health. "I'm knocking at 40's door in February. Taking care of myself means a lot to me."

Kelly has been taking regular yoga classes, as well as walking and stretching alongside a physical therapist. And while she's been craving chocolate and peanut butter, she's managed to maintain the majority of her healthy diet - which includes drinking four liters of water per day.

The singer revealed her pregnancy by showing off her growing baby bump on the cover of the publication. Her baby is due later this year.

Rihanna posed for a high-fashion photo shoot by well-known fashion photographer Steven Klein.

She revealed to British Vogue that she is aware of her emotional flaws that led her to have failed relationships with men and at least one woman.

She said that, despite her history of failed relationships, she still wants to raise "three or four children" alone if she has to.

"Would I do it on my own? Hell yeah!" she told the magazine. She said she wants to have children within the next 10 years.

Rihanna dismissed the advice of childcare experts who say children are more well-rounded and mentally healthy if they grow up in a stable 2-parent household with a mother and father.

"I feel like society makes me want to feel like 'Oh you got it wrong...' They diminish you as a mother, [if] there's not a dad in your kids' lives," she said.

Rihanna suggested she wants to have children to give her the happiness she feels she can't get from men.

"The only thing that matters is happiness, that's the only healthy relationship between a parent and a child. That's the only thing that can raise a child truly, is love."

The pop singer split from Saudi billionaire Hassan Jameel in January after dating long distance for three years.

Her exes include troubled singer Chris Brown and bisexual rappers Drake and A$AP Rocky.

Singer/songwriter SZA is very unhappy with the way her latest Rolling Stone magazine cover story turned out.

The singer appears on "The Takeover" issue of Rolling Stone alongside rapper Megan Thee Stallion and singer Normani. But on Twitter, SZA suggested the cover didn't reflect her high morals.

"Not doing any videos Interviews or photos for the rest of my life lol don't ask," she tweeted angrily on Thursday.

Fans speculated that the sexualized Rolling Stone cover, with its dominatrix overtones, led to her tweet.

SZA added: "S/o Normani and meg tho . My sisters who I love very much and respect deeply . Honored to be apart of ANYTHING w the two of those BLACK QUEENS."

In response to a fan who replied with a picture of the cover, SZA wrote: "If u care about me delete this."

The cover was shot by photographer Campbell Addy.

Lizzo has credited her therapist for giving her the "courage to be vulnerable as a vocalist".

The "Good As Hell" star suffered an emotional breakdown while on tour in 2018. Afterwards she decided to start seeing a therapist.

The songbird described her breakdown as "really scary". Lizzo told Rolling Stone magazine that "being vulnerable with someone I didn't know, then learning how to be vulnerable with people that I do know, gave me the courage to be vulnerable as a vocalist."

Shortly before heading out on the road for her 2018 tour, the 31-year-old, real name Melissa Jefferson, split from her boyfriend - whose identity she has kept secret.

While the split was a difficult time for the star, it's one she knew she needed to go through.

"As f**ked up as it sounds, I needed that heartbreak experience," she explained. "I'm not sad, because I use the pain so constructively. It's inevitable. The pain is human experience."

With the help of her therapist and a new outlook on life, Lizzo is working on a "relationship with my family" and opening herself "up to friendships".

"I open myself up to the idea of children, which is big for me, ’cause my albums are my babies," she added.

President Donald Trump was not impressed that Time magazine chose 16-year-old high school dropout Greta Thunberg as 2019 person of the year.

Thunberg is a Swedish activist who travels the world by train and boat to campaign against climate change.

In a Thursday morning tweet, Trump called Time magazine's choice "ridiculous" and suggested Greta work on her "Anger Management" and make new friends her age.

"Greta must work on her Anger Management problem, then go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend," he wrote.

He added: "Chill Greta, Chill!"

Trump was referring to Greta's angry outbursts and her habit of speaking to adults in a disrespectful tone. According to her handlers, Greta is "autistic.”

In response to Trump's tweet, Greta, who has 3 million followers, changed her Twitter bio to read:

"A teenager working on her anger management problem. Currently chilling and watching a good old fashioned movie with a friend."

Trump is the 2nd world leader to publicly spank the teenager this week.

Brazil's President Jair Bolsonaro rebuked Greta after she criticized his country for not protecting indigenous Brazilians in the Amazon.

"It's impressive that the press is giving space to a brat like that," Bolsonaro said.

Cardi B and Offset turned to the church to help save their failing marriage after she caught him cheating on her.

The hip-hop power couple tied the knot in September, 2017. They welcomed their first child, daughter Kulture Kiari Cephus in July, 2018. But by December 2018, the "Bodak Yellow" rapper announced she and Offset had parted ways.

Cardi B and Offset, both 27, reconciled months later, thanks to priests who made house calls.

In a cover story interview for the January 2020 issue of U.S. Vogue magazine, Cardi confessed she tuned to priests to help restore her faith in men.

"Everybody on social media acts like relationships is perfect," she said in her familiar broken English. "Everybody has issues. I believe in forgiveness. I prayed on it. Me and my husband, we prayed on it. We had priests come to us. And we just came to an understanding like, bro, it's really us against the world," she said.

On the cover, Cardi cradles her 16-month-old daughter in her lap. She wears a red polka dot dress. Her legs spread open seductively. She wears her black, straight hair slicked back. Her and Kulture's baby hairs are laid to perfection.

Defending her decision to stand by her husband, Cardi added, "people were so mad at me; a lot of women felt disappointed in me."

She addressed her female fans who may find themselves in a similar situation.

"If you love somebody and you stop being with them, and you're depressed and social media is telling you not to talk to that person because he cheated, you're not really happy on the inside until you have the conversation."

Despite new rumors that Offset cheated on her again, she added: "He has my back for everything, I have his back for everything."

Singer John Legend is People magazine's Sexiest Man Alive 2019. It shouldn't be a surprise that the liberal magazine chose Legend, who is a very vocal anti-Trump critic.

Actor Idris Elba, People's 2017 Sexiest Man Alive, congratulated Legend by joking with actor Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson (People's 2016 Sexiest Man Alive).

"My G Congratulations brother!!! You deserve it," Elba, 47, wrote. "DO NOT TELL @TheRock He still thinks he’s got the title, I didn't have the heart to tell him when I took it."

The regression of male masculinity is very evident in the men People magazine chose over the years.

Hollywood has waged war on toxic masculinity, so-called traditional masculinity norms that they say are harmful to women and children.

Hollywood is going to great lengths to redefine and ultimately erase masculinity in males as we know it.

Pharrell Williams, who is decidedly feminine, covered GQ magazine's 'New Masculinity' issue last month.

Effeminate musician Pharrell Williams is featured on the cover of GQ magazine's 'New Masculinity' issue.

In GQ's November issue Pharrell Williams apologizes for his masculinity and says he was "embarrassed" for perpetuating rape culture in his 2013 hit "Blurred Lines".

"Some of my old songs, I would never write or sing today. I get embarrassed by some of that stuff," the 46-year-old Aries said.

"It just took a lot of time and growth to get to that place... I think 'Blurred Lines' opened me up. I didn't get it at first. Because there were older white women who, when that song came on, they would behave in some of the most surprising ways ever. And I would be like, wow. They would have me blushing. So when there started to be an issue with it, lyrically, I was like, What are you talking about? There are women who really like the song and connect to the energy that just gets you up. And I know you want it - women sing those kinds of lyrics all the time. So it's like, What's rapey about that?"

The father of four said he realized that men use the same sort of language when taking advantage of biological women.

"...and it doesn't matter that that's not my behavior. Or the way I think about things. It just matters how it affects women. And I was like, Got it. I get it. Cool. My mind opened up to what was actually being said in the song and how it could make someone feel."

Rihanna isn't fazed by people speculating if she's pregnant because she "dreams" of becoming a mom one day. At 31, the Barbadian pop star still has time to become a mom in the foreseeable future.

@TheHapaBlonde / BACKGRID

The "Work" singer has been at the center of pregnancy rumors over the past couple of months. The rumors intensified when she was spotted with what appeared to be a baby bump that turned out to be a FUPA (fat in upper pubic area).

The U.S. Vogue cover girl addressed the speculation with Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Winter in the November 2019 issue of the magazine.

While Rihanna acknowledged that "a lot of woman get very defensive" about pregnancy talk, she insisted she's fine with it - because she secretly wishes the rumors were true.

"It's personal, it's our bodies, and of course it's our time," she told TV show Extra. "It's not necessarily everyone's dream to be a mom... but it's mine, so I'm fine. Anna just wants to know what the people want to know," she said.

@TheHapaBlonde / BACKGRID

The Vogue cover - Rihanna's sixth for the fashion publication - is also her favorite cover of them all, because she's showcasing her own Fenty fashion line.

"To see her (Anna) be so supportive — it's great to see us supporting each other, and it's always an honor," the star continued. "This is unlike any cover I have done with Vogue (because) I am wearing my own stuff."
