Serena Williams' and her Daughter Alexis are the newest Cover Girls for VOGUE!
Serena Williams and her daughter, Alexis Olympia Jr., are Vogue's February cover stars!
The stunning duo appear on the cover that declares "Love All," with Serena rocking a form-fitting red leotard and Alexis donning a simple white one-piece. Serena's massive engagement ring is on firm display as she holds Alexis in her left hand.
By appearing on the cover at somewhere between three and four months (depending on when the cover shoot happened), Alexis becomes Vogue's youngest-ever cover star in the iconic fashion magazine's 125-year history. The February issue marks Serena's third time on the cover of U.S. Vogue.
Williams, 36, also opened up about the terrifying health complications that emerged following the birth of her first daughter back in September. The day after going through an emergency C-section because of the baby's dropping heart rate, Williams was experiencing shortness of breath and went in for a CT scan, which found blood clots in her lungs.
Later, an intense coughing spell opened up her C-section scar and, during the surgery to close up the wound, doctors discovered that a hematoma had developed in her abdomen. As Williams told Vogue, everything went from "amazing" to "bad" very quickly.
She and Alexis' night nurse also abruptly informed them that she was no longer available to work for them, adding to the pressure she was already feeling as a new mother.
"Sometimes I get really down and feel like, Man, I can’t do this," Serena said. "It’s that same negative attitude I have on the court sometimes. I guess that’s just who I am. No one talks about the low moments -- the pressure you feel, the incredible letdown every time you hear the baby cry. I’ve broken down I don’t know how many times. Or I’ll get angry about the crying, then sad about being angry, and then guilty, like, Why do I feel so sad when I have a beautiful baby? The emotions are insane."

#RHoA: Kenya Moore Reveals Older Boyfriend Stabbed Her When She Was Just 16
It was an emotional episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta on Sunday, as Kenya Moore, Shereé Whitfield, NeNe Leakes, Kandi Burruss, Cynthia Bailey and Porsha Williams all came together to film a public service announcement about the dangers of domestic violence.
The Atlanta Housewives — some of whom have been the victims of abuse in the past, and others who were there to just lend their voices of support to the cause — wore white for the PSA, which was produced by Moore and shot (in black and white) by director Derek Blanks.
“I decided to produce a PSA on domestic violence to help spread the word on this important issue,” Moore said. “When it comes to domestic violence, you don’t have to look very far to find someone who has been adversely affected by it.”
Moore, 46, is one of those people. As she revealed during an emotional interview, the former Miss USA once had a near-death experience with an ex-boyfriend when she was only 16.
“When I was 16 years old, I dated someone who was 11 years my senior,” Moore explained. “It turned out to be a very physically abusive relationship to the point where I was stabbed, nearly killing me.”
“Knowing that this day in age — 20, 30 years later — it’s still occurring. I really wanted to do something about it,” she said.
#EMPIRE: When ‘Empire’ Season 4 Returns In 2018, Will The Lyons be SAFE?
Taraji P. Henson’s Cookie Lyon — the ex-con turned music mogul whose wild antics have kept fans more than entertained — reminded everyone in Empire Season 4 exactly why she’s the boss-lady. With Lucious battling to regain his memory after last season’s explosion, Cookie fearlessly held the family together and kept the Lyon family dynasty afloat... and all while wearing six-inch stiletto heels. Unfortunately, Cookie and the rest of Lyon family are taking a temporary break from putting out hits — both musical and on people — following the midseason finale Dec. 13
We all know that Empire would be undergoing a production hiatus for script rewrites, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The break began on Nov. 15, after filming was completed on episode 409, and was predicted to last somewhere between two and three weeks, which means it should be over by now. But fans will still be waiting a few months for new episodes. While the hiatus won’t impact the show’s on-air schedule, the series typically doesn’t return until early spring. No official release date has been announced by the network yet.
Viewers can expect Empire's Season 4 midseason finale to be full of snappy one-liners, long-held secrets, musical performances, and cliffhangers sure to make heads spin. Will Cookie and the Lyon family survive? Fans will just have to wait until 2018 to see.

#HIPHOPNEWS: Dr. Dre Might Release "Detox" After All
OAKLAND, CA – Dr. Dre has been working on the nearly mythical Detox album since 2002. In an episode of the HBO series The Defiant Ones, the Beats Electronics mastermind essentially deaded the possibility of it ever coming out. But that could change.
During a recent Golden State Warriors practice, Dre and his business partner Jimmy Iovine were spotted by ESPN’s Chris Haynes.
Haynes reportedly asked if Detox would ever see the light of day.
Dre replied, “I’m working on a couple songs right now. We’ll see.”
In 2014, producer Dewaun Parker said Dre scrapped the project in favor of another album, while the L.A. Weekly actually detailed the album’s storied history in 2015.
In the aforementioned The Defiant Ones episode, which aired last July, Dre said, “I never had any connection with [Detox], it didn’t work.”
He added, “I’m never gonna do that again.”
Several leaks from the project have surfaced over the years but only time will tell if the actual full length edition will become a reality.
#CONGRATS! Ricky Martin Confirms Marriage to Jwan Yosef!
Ricky Martin is a married man! The singer revealed on Wednesday, January 10, that he and Jwan Yosef tied the knot.
“I’m a husband, but we’re doing a heavy party in a couple of months, I’ll let you know,” the Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story star told E! News. “We exchanged vows, and we’ve swear [sic] everything, and we’ve signed all the papers that we needed to sign, prenups and everything.”
Martin, 46, and Yosef, 33, started dating in 2016. The “Nobody Wants to Be Lonely” crooner announced their engagement on The Ellen DeGeneres Show that November.
“Well, now he lives with me. He’s a conceptual artist and I’m a collector, so I started looking for art and I saw his art and I went crazy because I really love what he does. Really original. And then I contacted him,” Martin told Ellen DeGeneres at the time, explaining how he and Yosef first met. “I had no idea what he looked like and then I saw what he looked like and I’m like, Yeah. And we just got engaged.”
He continued, “I proposed. I was really nervous, but I got on my knees and I took out the little metal box — I just had it in a little velvet pouch — and instead of saying ‘Would you marry me?’ I said, ‘I got you something!’ Bad! And then he was like, ‘Yes?’ I said, ‘I want to spend my life with you,’ and he was like, ‘What is the question?’ ‘Would you marry me?’ That’s it.”
The Grammy winner, who is a father to 9-year-old twins Matteo and Valentino, shared a family photo with his kids and Yosef on New Years Day.

The second photo was captioned, “But, suddenly they all think you’re the solution.”
Seal added, “Oh I forgot, that’s right…..you’d heard the rumours but you had no idea he was actually serially assaulting young stary-eyed actresses who in turn had no idea what they were getting into. My bad. #SanctimoniousHollywood”

Logan Paul’s YouTube Channel Axed From Google Preferred Over Suicide Video
For many, social media giveth fame. For Logan Paul, social media is about to taketh away.
RelatedLogan Paul Apologizes Over Suicide Video: 'I'm Ashamed Of Myself'
YouTube said today that Logan’s multimillion-subscriber channels are being axed from Google Preferred, which aggregates YT’s top content into packages for brand advertisers. He also has been cut from the original series Foursome.
Last week, the immensely popular (especially among kids and young teens) twentysomething vlogger shared a video in which he and a group of friends came upon the corpse of a man hanging from a tree — apparently a death by suicide — in a Japanese forest known for suicides. The highly edited video, which showed the body and the onlookers’ reactions, was viewed by millions globally before being removed.
“In light of recent events, we have decided to remove Logan Paul’s channels from Google Preferred,” a YouTube spokesperson said in a statement. “Additionally, we will not feature Logan in season 4 of Foursome and his new Originals are on hold.”
Paul’s channels have a combined 15M-plus subscribers.
“Like many others, we were upset by the video that was shared last week. Suicide is not a joke, nor should it ever be a driving force for views.
“As Anna Akana put it perfectly: iThat body was a person someone loved. You do not walk into a suicide forest with a camera and claim mental health awareness.’
“We expect more of the creators who build their community on @YouTube, as we’re sure you do too. The channel violated our community guidelines, we acted accordingly, and we are looking at further consequences.
“It’s taken us a long time to respond, but we’ve been listening to everything you’ve been saying. We know that the actions of one creator can affect the entire community, so we’ll have more to share soon on steps we’re taking to ensure a video like this is never circulated again.”
YouTube noted today that the corpse video violated its community guidelines and that if Logan hadn’t removed the clip, the company would have — along with issuing a “strike” against Logan’s channel. It also noted that some graphic content is allowed on YouTube, provided that it’s posted for educational, scientific or documentary purposes. In many of those case, a warning screen pops up that says only users ages 18 and older can watch it.
After Paul removed the video on New Year’s Day, he tweeted a pair of statements:
In November, YouTube began purging what it calls “non-family friendly” content after some advertiser squawking. It resulted in some channels with millions of subscribers and views going dark — but not Paul’s.
Wendy Williams Slams Carrie Underwood After Possible Face-Altering Fall: ‘It’s An Excuse For A Facelift’
Carrie Underwood has been recovering from a possible face-altering fall she took back in Nov. But, Wendy thinks she may have underwent a secret facelift!
Wendy Williams, 53, returned to TV after her holiday break and she didn’t spare anyone during her “Hot Topics” segment on January 8. She took a dig at Carrie Underwood, 34, who has remained out of the spotlight, as she’s still recovering from a brutal fall she took at her home back in November 2017. After Carrie admitted that her fall may leave her [facial] appearance changed forever, Wendy questioned whether Carrie underwent a secret facelift! “Did you hear about her? … I really don’t know a whole bunch about it, but she allegedly fell down a bunch of steps at her house, broke her wrist,” Wendy said to her audience. “She [Carrie] released on Twitter that we may not recognize her when it’s all said and done. I don’t know what that means… an excuse for a face lift.”
When the audience roared in shock, Wendy attempted to dial back her bold comment. “No… We’re cynical! She was already cute, so I don’t know what she’s doing or what happened,” the talk show host yelled, before cracking more jokes. “If you’re home by yourself, how long do you lay there?” Wendy asked, adding, “Who’s going to save you, the dog?” Yikes.
As you may know, Carrie has taken a backseat to the Hollywood spotlight since she took a brutal fall right outside her home in November 2017. “While there were no life-threatening injuries, she was taken to the hospital to be treated,” her rep said in a statement to E! News at the time. “She sustained multiple injuries including a broken wrist and some cuts and abrasions from the fall… Her recovery will take some time and she appreciates all prayers and well wishes.” The rep also added that her husband, NHL pro, Mike Fisher, 37, was able to make it back into town on the night of her fall to be with her.
After undergoing surgery on her wrist, Carrie emerged on social media to give her fans an update on her recovery. She revealed that she’s been doing “regular physical therapy” after she tripped and fell. But, there’s some parts of her recovery she is unsure about. Carrie further explained:
“There is also another part of the story that I haven’t been ready to talk about since I have still been living it and there has been much uncertainty as to how things will end up. It’s crazy how a freak random accident can change your life.”
“In addition to breaking my wrist, I somehow managed to injure my face as well. I’ll spare you the gruesome details, but when I came out of surgery the night of my fall, the doctor told [my husband] Mike that he had put between 40 and 50 stitches in. Now, here we are 7 weeks later and, even though I’ve had the best people helping me, I’m still healing and not quite looking the same.”
