Push and Ginny took to Instagram on Monday with matching posts revealing their family is growing. The posts feature a Christmas-themed illustration of the couple and their dogs. Written on the picture are the words “Happy Holidays Baby T Coming Spring 2020.”

Although they didn’t say the baby’s gender, Ginny’s caption did disclose their child’s potential zodiac sign. 

“Finally landed my dream job. World, make way for BABY THORNTON! Arriving Gemini season 2020!! WE ARE OVER THE MOON!!!!!!!!!!!!” she captioned the post that also features an ultrasound of their child

Seeing as Push exposed a whole family with his bars, the rapper decided to continue this trend by using lyrics to reveal his child. Unlike Ginny’s post, Push turned the illustration into a video that features a snippet of an unreleased song.

Congrats This Is An AMAZING Blessing!

Yayyy! Reality TV OG Chrissy Lampkin is back on our television screens! As we wait for her highly anticipated return to VH1’s “Love and Hip Hop: New York,” she’s giving an update on the status of her wedding to longtime fiance – rapper Jim Jones. She says that they have not made any recent plans to tie the knot:

“To be honest with you, it’s not a priority anymore. Our relationship is in a good place.”

Chrissy Lampkin continued:

“I thought that that was, like, the natural progression, but it’s not for everybody. So, we’re good right now.”

Chrissy says that she will be bringing the drama to the tenth season of her home VH1 season. She said:

“Well, they kind of said they wanted to get back to the essence of the show. So they said, ‘Come back and help us bring back some sexy!’ But my drama kicked in before the sexy!”

Solange’s 9-Minute Medley Of ‘When I Get Home’ On ‘The Tonight Show’

Sis Solo took to ‘The Tonight Show’ stage to give viewers a medley from her classic album, ‘When I Get Home.’

via Complex:

Solange strung together “Taking on the Light,” “Things I Imagined,” “Down with the Clique,” “Binz,” and “Almeda” to create a nine-minute set for Fallon. Although she was limited to a late-night stage, Solange still put together a visual performance that rivals her concerts. She was accompanied by live musicians as well as dancers who synchronized their movements with Solange and her back up singers. The set ended with only Solange and a figure draped in silver performing on a black stage. 

Like almost everything Solange does, this was an atypical take on Fallon’s musical guest segment. Her performance was meant to honor When I Get Home’s interdisciplinary art film. The original version was a 33-minute project that Solange described as a “Texas film.” It dropped in March along with her album. Next week, the singer will be releasing a director’s cut of the film for her fans. 

When I Get Home is Solange’s fourth studio album. It follows her highly acclaimed 2016 album, A Seat at the Table. While A Seat at the Table uses Solange’s connection to New Orleans as a backdrop to address several themes, When I Get Home is dedicated to her hometown of Houston, Texas. The film uses historically black areas of Houston as it’s setting including the hair salon that used to be owned by her mother, Tina Knowles-Lawson. 

Viola Davis Thoughts On The ‘Ridiculous’ Idea of Julia Roberts Playing Harriet Tubman: I’m ‘Concerned’

Viola Davis is responding to the news that a studio executive once suggested Julia Roberts to play abolitionist Harriet Tubman in a movie about her life.

via People:

“It happens all of the time [in Hollywood],”
Davis, 54, recently told MadameNoire when asked to comment.

“Here’s the thing, simply put: Julia Roberts as Harriet Tubman is ridiculous,” she said. “That barely warrants a response. That’s ridiculous. I understand that the film industry very much is about commerce and money, I get it. But that’s ridiculous.”

Roberts was never involved in the project.

Last week, screenwriter Gregory Allen Howard — who co-wrote the screenplay for this year’s Tubman biopic Harriet — wrote a column in the Los Angeles Times. In the column, he revealed that a studio head had suggested Roberts to play the titular role — and appeared not to know that Tubman was a black woman.

“Fortunately, there was a single black person in that studio meeting 25 years ago who told him that Harriet Tubman was a black woman,” Howard wrote. “The president replied, ‘That was so long ago. No one will know that.’”

Davis added that she is “always a little concerned that the people who are questioned about race and diversity and inclusion, are the people in need and not the people in power.

“You don’t question the people who have not been invited to the party, you question the people who are throwing the party,” she continued. “And the people who are out there who are living in any way, even within this industry, who have the green light vote, who have the power to finance films, who are making those choices to want to cast a Julia Roberts as a Harriet Tubman, this is a better question for them.”

“Why is it that you are not armed with enough information and why you don’t see it as important to cast a Black woman as Harriet Tubman? Why is it that you would want to make this decision?” Davis said, adding, “You can go through the history books and see that Harriet Tubman was a Black woman.”

For his own sake we glad he didnt produce the film. Im anxious for someone to reveal who is is

John Singleton Wanted To Create Lil Kim Biopic Before He Passed

John Singleton was in talks of creating a Lil Kim biopic before he transitioned!

During her visit to The Real Thursday (Nov. 7) Lil Kim told the world that he approached her about it.

The rapper said,

“I’ve gotten so many offers. I’m talking, major offers… even BET, Lifetime, Lionsgate. But the thing is, I had to be ready, and I think now I’m ready to tell the story.”

She said Singleton was the one who wanted to tell it.

“Him and I went [to a party]. He was like, ‘I want you to be my celebrity date.’ But I knew what that meant. He wants to talk, right? So he said to me, ‘Kim, why aren’t we doing this movie? You’re a walking best-seller.’ And I was like, ‘Well, I’m waiting for you.’”

She added that she wouldn’t have it any other way, but unfortunately, he passed before they were able to make it happen.

“I said to him, I always said if I did a movie about my life, I’m not doing it with anybody but you. And then he passed away.”

 Singleton passed away in April after suffering a massive stroke. The iconic film and TV series director was the brains behind classics like Boyz n the Hood, Poetic Justice and Baby Boy just to name a few
