CELEB SPOTTING: Kelly Rowland Shows Off Baby Bump While Doing Yoga

Kelly Rowland is pregnant and proud! After officially announcing the news that she was expecting through Instagram (she showed off little baby Jordans next to her husband Tim Witherspoon‘s own shoes), the singer was spotted showing off her baby bump while in a sports bra and exercise pants at the gym. Kelly was simply meditating and doing yoga,  and posted a picture for fans, and, of the course, the bump was the main focus!

Kelly, who is really into fitness, recently told Us Weekly, “I’m in love with boxing and yoga right now. It just feels good, it’s really empowering. I just feel like I’m getting my little strength back and getting my little jabs in. I think that nothing should change whether it comes with your age or whatever. I think you should always do what you love to do.”

This baby is the first for both Tim and Kelly. The couple was married just last month  in a  private wedding in Costa Rica, during which her former Destiny’s Child groupmate Beyonce and Solange Knowles were in attendance. “Perfect. That’s [all I’ll say],” she told Us Weekly of the ceremony. “Perfect. Perfect day.”

Baby Alert: Kelly Rowland is Pregnant!

Is Kelly Rowland Pregnant?

Yup. And she’s got the baby shoes to prove it, courtesy of this Instagram photo posted Tuesday night by the singer. She captioned her photo with “I’ll be stuntin like my daddy…” and the picture was of Air Jordans with the matching baby version. (See Below)

Aww.

The happy newlyweds were spotted baby shopping at Bel Bambini just weeks after their wedding in West Hollywood May 27th. Rowland, dressed in boyfriend jeans, a baggy white tee shirt and sunglasses and hubby were “checking out the furniture and strollers on the second floor and walked around downstairs,” according to an onlooker.

The pair are very private in regards to their personal life and they are keeping quiet on their pending parenthood. They also kept the majority of the details of the wedding ceremony in Costa Rica shushed as well.

A source from the exchanging of vows said, “Kelly was really happy. It was a great break for everybody from the normal grind, but they’re all going back to work.”

Congratulations to the happy couple!

Marksman Media/CelebrityVIPLounge Exclusive: Inside the 9th Annual Jazz in the Gardens

ANEFFKING_KELLYR_JITG9

As in years past, for the first word in the news backstage on stage at Jazz in the Gardens, keep it locked here. This year’s festivities featured some of the best and brightest in the musical realms of jazz, R&B, hip-hop, and soul yet again.

The standouts?

LL Cool J proved that his rapping prowess has not diminished in lieu of his latest acting endeavors. The New York native came down south to MiamiGardens to spit some of his most classic lyrics from his many platinum albums. Maze featuring Frankie Beverly, one of the biggest touring acts around, showed why they are still a powerhouse vocal group to be reckoned with. Old school rhythm and blues lovers ate this group up from the first note to the last ballad. But the perennial favourite of the weekend?

None other than former Destiny’s Child singer (and former X Factor judge) Kelly Rowland. The songstress proved that she is no longer in the shadows of Beyonce, but a formidable show(wo)man in her own right. Backed by an impressive band and wearing fashion forward pieces that women will be emulating in mere days, Rowland had the crowd eating out the palm of her manicured hands.

In the coming days, we will be back with snippets and video from the weekend festivities.

Stay tuned…

[CELEB SPOTTING] Tina Knowles Has Masquerade Birthday Bash in New Orleans

Tina Knowles brought in her 60th birthday RIGHT! Heading down to New Orleans, Miss Tina had a sexy masquerade ball for her birthday, which was a huge celebrity-studded affair! Of course, daughters Beyoncé and Solange Knowles were in attendance, as well as Kelly Rowland and Jay-Z. Other celeb attendees included Jennifer Hudson, Monica and Shannon Brown, and even Kris Jenner! Check out some pics from the bash below!

The party looked like so much fun, and Miss Tina looked SNATCHED! I always wanted to throw a masquerade ball myself…the masks really pop and add a sense of mystery and sexiness. It’s cool that Solange and Bey threw their mama a hot party like this!

X Factor Ratings Drop Even More

Perhaps Simon Cowell should beg Britney back on the show, then steal her ‘scripts and watch her go mental on live television. Because he may have booted the allegedly crazy singer from the show and blamed her for the falling ratings, but it ain’t Britney’s fault, y’all!

Something in the milk ain’t clean!

X Factor returned on Wednesday with not a bang but a thud this week, averaging 6.2 million viewers. With new judges Kelly Rowland and Paulina Rubio joining Cowell and Demi Lovato, many insiders (including Simon Cowell himself) thought the show would get a boost in the ratings. As it turns out, that is not the case and now the finger pointing has started. Why are the ratings dropping?

Is it possible that it could be Simon Cowell himself?

No one close to him would dare say it, but it very well could be. His recent babymama drama certainly has not endeared him to any new fans, and his big-headedness means he will never lave his own show even if it’s fault the ratings are in decline.

So what say ye, VIPers?

Why is this ship sinking so fast that even Kelly Rowland’s glorious breasticles cannot keep it afloat?!

DAY 2: Kelly Rowland, Audrina Patridge, Adrienne Bailon Get It In At Coachella

audrina-patridge

During day two of Coachella, the weekend’s parties were in full swing in nearby Palm Springs with stars such as Kelly Rowland, Darren Criss, Chris Colfer, Adrienne Bailon, Audrina Patridge and her boyfriend Corey Bohan, who soaked up the sun and took in performances by Tamara Sky, Kilo Kish, Venus X and Liza Thorn at the Women Who Rock Pool Party hosted at the Hard Rock Music Lounge, an exclusive three-day retreat for artists, celebrities, tastemakers and VIPs attending the music festival.

At the Barefoot Refresh Pool, Barefoot kept guests cool with the debut of its new Refresh line of wine designed to be enjoyed on the rocks. While hanging out poolside, guests challenged one another to rounds of ping pong and sat back and relaxed in private Barefoot Refresh cabanas. Celebrities were also invited to sign the Barefoot Refresh surfboard, that will be donated to benefit the Surfrider Foundation at the end of the weekend.

Kelly Rowland was on hand to host the Women Who Rock Pool Party and hung out poolside in a Barefoot Refresh cabana. Dressed in all white, the star told us that despite working in the music industry for years, this was actually her first Coachella and she couldn’t wait to take it all in.

Fellow singer, actress and fashionista Adrienne Bailon joined Kelly to hang out in the Barefoot Refresh cabana. Adrienne sipped Barefoot Refresh wine on the rocks and dished on Coachella dress code and her new side project, Fingertip Fetish nail polish.

Though they breezed though the party, TV co-stars Darren Criss and Chris Colfer stopped by to sign the Barefoot Refresh surfboard. Darren seemed to have catching some waves on his mind and hinted he was envious that the Barefoot Refresh surfboard wasn’t his own by signing above his name, “I wish I could surf on this board!” We’d hang ten with Darren any day.

Audrina Patridge came back by the Hard Rock Music Lounge for more fun on day two dressed in cut-off denim shorts and a black crop top. The reality star stopped to sign the Barefoot Refresh surfboard alongside BMX pro Corey Bohan. After stopping to leave her mark, the two ducked into a nearby photo booth. Later that afternoon Audrina’s former co-star and fashion designer Whitney Port arrived to check out the music lounge decked out in a similar black lace crop top and green printed shorts. Another reality-star fashionista, Brad Goreski, arrived late in the afternoon dressed in a light blue Lacoste polo and signed the Barefoot Refresh surfboard before heading into check out the festivities.

Kelly Rowland: Still Clueless

The other member’s of Destiny’s Child (that child obviously being Beyonce) really need to be sat down and told how it really is because years later, they still claim not to realize that they were just basically glorified members of Beyonce’s group. Even though they get together occasionally for a song here or there, everyone knows that’s only if Beyonce decides to take time out of her mega-packed schedule to give some time and throw a check at Michelle, Kelly’s (and occasionally those other 3 former members’) bank accounts to silence them. Kelly Rowland, the lone original member still left after Beyonce’s father kicked out the rest, recently told Billboard to expect another reunion for the three.

Of sorts.

“It’s not a Destiny’s Child track. It’s me featuring Beyonce and Michelle”, Rowland told Billboard magazine.

Isn’t that basically what Beyonce has been doing/saying for years?

kelly-rowland

Let’s wait and see what this track is all about before we go any further in our analysis. At the end of the day, the other girls deserve a few more checks any way they can get one!

One Of These Women Looks Fabulous….

beyonce-kelly-rowland-grammys-fashionThe other one?

Not so much!

So, please someone out there that has not been handed a check under the table by Team Knowles-Carter…explain to me how Beyonce in her boring black and white pantsuit with flapper sleeves…managed to get on Best Dressed lists of ANY kind after The Grammys? Is her pull so deep that she can basically roll out of bed, put on Ivy Blue’s bib and be claimed a style icon?!

Meanwhile, Kelly Rowland, the hottest member of Destiny’s Child (yeah, I said it, and I dare you to prove otherwise) went far and above the call of duty to pull off the look of the night as Beyonce vowed revenge in a corner. Her strategically placed cut-outs on her black dress proved that although Beyonce may have more checks, there are some things that checks simply cannot buy.

Nor can plastic surgeons.

Can you just imagine if Beyonce had tried to wedge her snausages into this dress? Because, the last time I checked, Photoshop was still only relegated to photos, not live red carpet events.

Team Kelly.

Suck it, Bey!

Destiny’s Child Will Release New Compilation Album

Big news for Destiny’s Child fans! The group is set to release a new compilation album on January 29!

Straight from lead singer Beyoncé‘s website, the album, Love Songs, will be comprised of Destiny’s Child classics recorded between 1997-2004. Love Songs will also feature “Nuclear,” the first new Destiny’s Child recording since 2004! Produced by Pharrell Williams (who cowrote the track with DC’s Michelle Williams, James Fauntleroy and Lonny Bereal), “Nuclear” features vocal production by Beyoncé and Lonny Bereal. The compilation will be released under Legacy Recordings.

The website added:

In addition to the new track, “Nuclear,” Love Songs balances romantic, passionate and sensual selections from 1998’s Destiny’s Child (“Killing Time,” “Second Nature”); 1999’s The Writing’s On The Wall (“Now That She’s Gone,” “If You Leave” featuring Next, “Temptation”); 2001’s Survivor (“Brown Eyes,” “Emotion”) and 2004’s Destiny Fulfilled (“Cater 2 U,” “If,” “T-Shirt,” “Love”). Added treats for fans include the Timbaland remix of “Say My Name” (originally released on 2002’s This Is The Remix) and Kelly Rowland’s “Heaven” (a key track from Simply Deep, her 2002 solo album).”

Pre-orders are now available on Amazon! I am BEYOND excited for this album! I was thinking about Destiny’s Child a few weeks ago, wondering if they would ever reunite for an album, a song, whatever. Of course, I would love for there to be a completely new album filled with music, but beggars can’t be choosers! I can’t wait to hear these new tracks!

Quote of the Day: Kelly Rowland

“I haven’t seen my dad for almost 20 years. It’s nothing I want a pity party for. He left me and my mom, and I was angry. I wanted to be a daddy’s girl so bad. God damn The Cosby Show because that made me think, ‘Why isn’t my family like that?’ But this is not a perfect world.”
