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!

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

Summer Walker Is Done , Y’all Can Have The Music & I’ma Head Out’

In a lengthy post shared on social media, Summer Walker vented that she’s not just over it, she’s done with the music industry.

It’s just been a couple of weeks since her first album Over It made its debut. But now Summer is quitting music.

She wrote,

“na fr though I’ve decided y’all don’t deserve me lol I knew from day one I was to real for this s***. y’all can have the music & ima just head out. f*** the interviews, photo shoots, videos, & really the shows too.”

Fortunately for her fans, she said she’ll finish her tour, but warned that we won’t hear much from her after that.

“I’ll finish this tour out tho. I’m just a regular person, nothing more. lol people got this fame s*** f***ed up. I been me from day one, I’m not bout to start acting different, talking different, treating people different, or looking different. people really expect too much from you.”

She added,

“Everyday / everything isn’t a miss America bad b**** contest, & I don’t feel the need to put others down to stay relevant. people really just DISCONNECTED…. hiding behind these apps, these filters, the clothes, the makeup, the hair lol a lot of y’all need to step back & get into yourselves.. from a different perspective. take the same amount of time that you normally do to prepare/improve your physical but apply it to your spirit & become COMFORTABLE with the real you, whoever that may be as long as your not hurting anyone

She went on to say that fans need to be more worried about self-acceptance than securing the bag.

“That same amount of time you take to chase the “bag” try putting that same amount of energy into patience, acceptance, understanding, self awareness, self love but I know no one gives a shit about what I’m saying so yeah. peace love & light”

Ciara On Owning Her Masters ‘I No Longer Felt Creatively Handcuffed’

It sure doesnt feel like it but yes  Ciara has been in the game for 15 years!

The singer dropped her debut studio album Goodies on Sept. 28, 2004. It featured hit songs like “Goodies”, “Oh” and “1,2 Step.”

And now, she’s schooling us on how it’s done as years later, she owns the masters to her music. She said during a recent interview,

“It’s an incredible chapter. It’s pretty cool to know you’re out here running around and hustlin’ and bustlin’ and you’re not only performing songs you wrote, but you also own the masters to those songs.”

She added that it’s all a dream come true.

“I used to dream about that while being signed to a label. I was like, the day that I get a chance, I want to own my own masters. I want to do it differently. Because after a while you kind of get frustrated with having to go through the same process — when you believe in something, when you have a vision for it, but the person who makes the decisions doesn’t share the same vision. When I got the chance, I actually wasn’t even planning on doing it in that moment.”

Ciara, who launched her own record label, Beauty Marks Entertainment, added that her chance to own her music came with the successful release of “Level Up” in June 2018.

“This was the moment I was waiting for and it’s like God gave it to me. It was the best feeling in the world. I no longer felt creatively handcuffed.”

As for being in the game so long, she said,

“It’s special. It’s kind of surreal — it’s like pinching myself, and going, ‘This is literally 15 years ago.’ Like, 15 years ago sounds so far away. To see this generation dancing to that song like it’s a new song, and it’s falling right into the pocket of what’s happening now, it’s kind of crazy. It also shows you the cycle of music and how different times repeat themselves all over again.”

“I feel motivated, like when I was younger. Everything happened so fast. Literally one song was No. 1, one song was top three, next song was top three. Naturally, you can kind of just keep rolling with it versus soaking in the moment when it’s happening.”

“I’ve started working on enjoying the moments when they happen, and not looking for the next moment so fast.”
