Solange Cancels Her Coachella Performance

If you were attending Coachella because Solange was performing, I have some disappointing news.

Solange will no longer be performing at the festival.

The official Coachella social media accounts announced that due to major production delays she won’t be taking the stage.

Due to major production delays, Solange will unfortunately no longer be performing at this year’s festival. She sends her sincerest apologies, and looks forward to performing at Coachella in the future.

Michelle Williams Reveals How Her Battle with Depression Almost Ended Her Relationship With Chad Johnson Twice

Michelle Williams’ battle with depression often affects her relationship with Chad Johnson, causing the couple to break up twice in a span of several months.

The Destiny’s Child singer first ended her engagement weeks after Johnson popped the question in March, then again just before she checked herself into a mental health facility in July, according to People.

“I thought I was over depression, I thought, ‘I’m good!’ I’ve got love, I’m working out,” the 38-year-old star told the publication. “But I was so angry. The rage built up in me. I did not attempt suicide, but I was questioning [life].”

Having recognized the signs of depression from earlier in her career, she began noticing a change around the time of Coachella in April.

“The entire year we were rehearsing every day for hours,” the Gospel singer added. “I was burying it, and before you knew it, I was looking up out of the pit like, ‘Oh my God.’”

During the rocky months, Williams apparently tried to cut Johnson out of the picture, but he stayed on board supporting her the entire way.

“I would’ve understood [if he left],” Williams explained. “He’s been praying for a wife. He didn’t pray for a depressed wife.”

Today, their relationship is moving forward and they are undergoing premarital counseling while she continues her own private counseling.

“People fall off the fitness wagon, people fall off the wellness wagon, but I can’t fall off the [therapy] wagon,” the star reiterated. “I have to get healed to live this happy life.”

Beyoncé Announces Scholarships for Historically Black Colleges and Universities

Just days after her epic Coachella performance, Beyoncé announced the four new schools benefiting from the second installment of the BeyGOOD Initiative’s Homecoming Scholars Award program (previously the Formation Scholars Award program).

One student from Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) Xavier University, Wilberforce University, Tuskegee University and Bethune-Cookman University, will receive $25,000 for the 2018-2019 academic year.

Ivy McGregor, Director of Philanthropy and Corporate Relations at Parkwood Entertainment, which houses BeyGOOD, said the program salutes “the rich legacy of Historically Black Colleges and Universities.” She added, “We honor all institutions of higher learning for maintaining culture and creating environments for optimal learning which expands dreams and the seas of possibilities for students.”

Beyoncé established the scholarship in April 2017 to mark the one-year anniversary of her 2016 visual LP, Lemonade. While the first year spotlighted young women, the 2018-2019 year will expand to all qualifying students at the four universities, regardless of gender.

The associated disciplines will include literature, creative arts, African American studies, science, education, business, communications, social sciences, computer science and engineering. Applicants must maintain a 3.5 or better GPA. The four universities will select all finalists and winners, with recipients announced this summer.

Beyoncé honored the history of HBCUs during her headlining Coachella set on Saturday, incorporating over 150 musicians and dancers – including a marching band and choir – into her detailed set, which also included guest spots from Jay Z, Solange and her former Destiny’s Child members.

Cardi B Pregnant?! Due this summer 🤰🤰

Despite her denials, Cardi B is reportedly pregnant and due to have Offset’s baby this summer. I wasnt going to post this , but looking at her recent ig pics ( lack of skin or no pics of midsection) and how ive always shown love to her….why not!?

via TMZ:

Sources close to Cardi B tell TMZ … the rapper’s due the first week of July and will be close to 7 months pregnant with Offset’s kiddo when she takes the stage next month at Coachella.

It’s unclear if she’ll dress to cover up what will most likely be a noticeable baby bump by the time she takes the stage. Notice, she was more modest last week at the iHeartRadio Music Awards
.

TMZ broke the story … Cardi’s people told nightclub staffers she’s pregnant during Super Bowl weekend. She denied it, and so did her baby daddy … but we’re told the baby train’s full steam ahead.

Tami Roman was right along 😁😁😁

Cant wait to see how Cardi dress up her bump in them FashionNova fashions. Baby SpinOff on the way
