Tracee Ellis Ross Explains What She Loves About Her Body In Health Mag!
Tracee Ellis Ross looked incredible while posing for the cover of Health magazine‘s April 2017 issue, on newsstands March 10.
Here is what the 44-year-old Black-ish actress shared with the mag:
On what she loves about her body as she’s getting older: “I love my butt in a way I didn’t growing up. I really didn’t like it growing up. It was so much bigger than everyone else’s, and I wanted jeans to look the way they did on everyone else, and mine didn’t. I’ve been—to a certain extent—at odds with my body for many years, wanting it to be something other than it was, wanting myself to be something other than I was.”
On how her style has evolved: “I’ve always dressed the same way. I love a slim-fitted blazer, a high-waisted trouser. I love dresses and sweatpants. I think less is more, simple is good, and black is always key. It makes anything look good—even sweatpants! Put a fancy jacket over it, and no one will know.”
On the best thing she’s ever done for her body: “One, talk nice to it. And two, find workouts that make me feel good.”

#RHoA: Kim Zolciak is motivated by money to return to RHoA!
Kim Zolciak told The Daily Mail that she may return to “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” season 10 for a simple reason: “I’m motivated by money.”
That is possibly the most obvious but also most honest thing she has ever said. Although I’m sure her “Don’t Be Tardy” spinoff compensates her well, adding a “Real Housewives” salary would be a serious chunk of change. It would also help fill the absence of income from her husband Kroy Biermann, who ended up not playing football this past season after the Atlanta Falcons dropped him and the Buffalo Bills let him go before the season began.
Zolciak was last on “Real Housewives” on a regular basis in 2013. She will return for a cameo this season. There are rumors she will return season 10. Well DUH Tardy isn’t doing ish. Kroy isn’t playing anYwhere. Those bills gotta be paid somehow. LOL!

Music News: Mario Announces He is Changing The Title of His Upcoming Album to ‘Cosmo 17’
Following the release of his sexy music video for “Let Me Help You,” Mario revealed to Music Choice that he has made the ‘choice’ to rename his upcoming album.
The R&B singer/songwriter previously announced that his fifth album, and first independent, would be titled ‘Paradise Cove.’ Now, Mario has had some more time to sit with the project as a whole, and he felt the title did not sum up the music quite right, so he has decided to switch the title to an otherworldly love theme with, Cosmo 17.
“The album title is changed. From ‘Paradise Cove’ to a new title that’s inspired by not only just the music but my perception of where we are in humanity when it comes to love,” he explains.
“The new album title is ‘Cosmo 17,’ and I love Paradise Cove too absolutely. I can’t say that this album has an island vibe I think ‘Let Me Help You is the only record. The rest of the album developing it, it kinda took a life of it’s own. It’s kinda like I was talkin’ to myself as a kid telling him like, ‘love still exists’ like ‘it’s still real’ like you know you still believe in it don’t give up, and if you can’t find it here on earth maybe you gotta go to the cosmos to find it.”

New Hip Hop: The Game – ‘What Else’
The Game gets into gaming. As part of “Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands” video game soundtrack, Chuck Taylor unleashes the hard-hitting banger, “What Else.”
“Cock it and blast it,” he raps. “Put ’em all in a casket / Striking the matches, wrap you in plastic / Call me for duty and I’ll murder the masses.”
Later, he adds: “Can I live? Can I breathe? Or will I die with this flag on my sleeve / What else? / Is it war, is it pain / Will I survive ’till the end of the game?”
The track’s deadly theme is perfect for “Ghost Recon: Wildlands,” a video game based on a military shooter. But it’s just one of four tracks from the game’s soundtrack, which was curated by T.I. and DJ Skee. The project also features contributions from Tip (“Dope Game”), Belly (“Consuela” featuring Young Thug and Zack), and Nipsey Hussle (“Grindin”).

Oh Lordt! Remy Ma Claims Nicki Minaj ‘Barbz’ Are Trying to Send Her Back to Jail
After Remy Ma murdered Nicki Minaj when she dropped her diss track ‘SHEther’, Nicki fans weren’t happy. Remy claims Nicki ‘barbz’ are trying to get her locked up again, trying to leak her address and getting deleted from twitter and Instagram.
Nicki Minaj hasn’t responded to Remy Ma‘s viral “shETHER” diss, but its seems her Barbz aren’t going down without a fight. While the Nickster remains unbothered, left boob on display and all, her stans have allegedly been threatening to call Remy’s probation officer in a last ditch effort to get revenge.
Remy revealed in a video that the Barbz have resorted to more personal levels by way of a few phone calls. Mattel, the official Barbie brand’s toy manufacturing home, was the first to be rang up from Nicki’s stans, informed of Remy’s Barbie-slaying “shETHER” cover artwork. A few copyright technicalities and image permission violations later, and reports that the company would be suing Rem for $20 million, blazed the Internet in defense of Ms. Minaj. After those reports panned out to be false, Remy said that people have threatened to hit up her probation officer.
Remy claimed in the clip, “N*ggas was saying like, ‘Oh, call her P.O., oh you’re getting sued.’ Ya n*ggas is real fuck n*ggas.” She continued, “I can’t fuck with n*ggas that think calling police, or the P.O., or suing somebody is gangster. Y’all n*ggas is f**king lames. Never called the cops on nobody a day in my life.”
Prince Jackson Says He Realized His Father, Michael Jackson, Was Famous When He Saw “Big, Muscle-bound Dudes Fainting!
It’s always a wonder whether celebrity children understand the extent of superstardom their parents obtained. In an interview with Good Morning America, Michael Jackson’s eldest son sat down with Robin Roberts to discuss the moment he realized his father was famous. As his sister, Paris, steps from behind their father’s shadow, Prince Jackson talks creating his own identity outside of his father’s celebrity and legacy.
“I guess when we kind of realized was when we saw videos of him performing. We were out of the country at the time, and we were watching some videos of his performances. I’ve been used to seeing most females pass out when they see their [favorite] artists. They get, you know, very emotional,” Prince said, discussing the first time he realized his dad was extremely famous. “But what blew my mind was when I saw these big, muscle-bound dudes fainting and having to be dragged out.”
“So, I was like, ‘Okay there’s something else going on here,” he added, while maintaining he still didn’t quite understand it, since the “King of Pop” was, in fact, their father.
“Even after we realized he was the King of Pop – even to this day, I don’t think it holds the same weight to us that it does to other people because he was our father, our dad, our daddy – whatever you want to call him” he continued.
While Paris breaks out into the fashion world, by signing with a top-tier modeling agency, Prince is making a name for himself behind the scenes with the launch of his company called King’s Son Productions.
“King’s Son Productions has this mantra where ‘a title is earned, but a name is given.’ So, I was born as Prince and that was the name my dad had given to me,” Prince said. “But my dad had earned the epithet King of Pop and that’s through hard work and years of training and everything he worked so hard to get. So, it’s a form of motivation because my name is Prince, but for all intents and purposes I am the King’s son and working to get my own epithet.”
As Paris takes on the public-eye, Prince reveals he would much rather keep his private life out of the spotlight.
“I’m not a fan of having my private or personal life being out there,” he said, “but I understand the importance of showing what I do and hopefully trying to inspire others to continue spreading the good and helping the community.”
Prince believes his father would be supportive of anything either of them tries to accomplish.
“As we were growing up, my dad always said, ‘I really don’t care what you do in life as long as you’re happy doing it and you’re the best at what you do. If you want to be a janitor at a high school, you should be the best janitor that you can be,” Prince said. “I think that he would always be the supporting figure to my siblings and me and support us in all the endeavors that we try.”

George Michael Died of Natural Causes, Coroner Rules
George Michael died of natural causes at age 53, the coroner investigating his death revealed early Tuesday.
The legendary singer suffered a dilated cardiomyopathy with myocarditis and fatty liver, according to the senior coroner for Oxfordshire, Darren Salter.
A statement from the coroner reads, “Enquires into the death of George Michael have been concluded and the final post mortem report received. As there is a confirmed natural cause of death, being Dilated Cardiomyopathy with Myocarditis and Fatty Liver, the investigation is being discontinued and there is no need for an inquest or any further enquiries. No further updates will be provided and the family requests the media and public respect their privacy.”
Dilated cardiomyopathy is a disease of the heart, when the left ventricle stretches and fails to effectively pump blood, according to the Mayo Clinic. As the muscle becomes weaker, heart failure can occur. Meanwhile, myocarditis is an inflammation of the heart usually caused by a viral infection.
All the nasty comments, press and 999 were very cruel and unnecessary whatsoever, Now I hope to receive some real LOVE x
Fatty liver disease is the buildup of fat in the liver, most commonly caused by alcoholism. However, the disease can also happen in people who are not heavy drinkers, according to Mayo Clinic. Other common causes of fatty liver include obesity and diabetes.
Michael’s boyfriend Fadi Fawaz took to Twitter soon after the news broke, sharing a smiling photo of the couple.
“The Truth is out…” he captioned the black and white image.
He later responded to tabloid rumors surrounding Michael’s death by saying, “All the nasty comments, press and 999 were very cruel and unnecessary whatsoever, Now I hope to receive some real LOVE x.”
Thames Valley Police also commented on Michael’s death Tuesday, saying they were completing the related investigation.
“The investigation into the circumstances of the death has now concluded and a file was passed to the Coroner. As the cause of death was natural, no further action is proposed or required,” authorities wrote on Facebook. “No further updates will be provided and the family requests the media and public respect their privacy.”
The initial autopsy, completed on Dec. 30, was revealed to be “inconclusive” in a statement released by the Thames Valley police.
“The cause of death is inconclusive and further tests will now be carried out,” the statement read. “The results of the tests are unlikely to be known for several weeks.”
“Mr. Michael’s death is still being treated as unexplained but not suspicious,” police added at the time.
While the tests appeared to take a considerable amount of time, a spokesperson for the coroner’s court previously told PEOPLE that this is not unusual—as toxicology tests vary from individual to individual, some tests proceed much faster than others.
Michael died peacefully in his home on Christmas Day, his rep confirmed to PEOPLE. Michael’s U.S. publicist previously told PEOPLE that the musician died of heart failure.
Faizon Love Arrested at the Airport for Fighting a Valet

Trumpcare is only to help the rich and hurt the poor
If Donald Trump and the Republians have their way, the poor will find it difficult to obtain proper health care. On March 6, Republicans issued a plan that would repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act with a system that is less sympathetic to the poor.
According to the initial plan that was released, the plan would cut back on funding to states that cover poorer adults through the Medicaid program. Poor and lower middle-class individuals, people earning $30,000 per year or less, would also lose financial assistance.
However, the rich will receive extra benefits under the plan. The Americans who need the least amount of help will receive the most. The rich will receive subsidies that will help them buy insurance and they would also face less taxes. Also, insurance executives who earn $500,000 or more will pay less taxes.
The plan would be a total reversal of Obama’s plan which allowed the insurance to be adjusted to income. As a result, the poor and old would be affected the most.
While the nation should be angered by the new plan, it should really cause backlash in the “Rust Belt” states that helped to elect Donald Trump. Working-class Whites will also suffer under Trumpcare.
According to Urban Institute, 6.2 million non-college-educated Whites have gained insurance under Obamacare, compared with about nine million minorities. Obamacare also cut uninsured non-college-educated Whites from 20 percent in 2010 to 12 percent in 2015.
Working-class Whites will have to face the real-life consequences of putting their trust in a man who never deserved it. The entire country will be punished because of their decisions.
Trumpcare still has an uphill battle. Several Republicans are against the initial plan that will need the full GOP Congress to vote for it.
