Kardashian Family

5 Lessons The Kardashians Can Teach Us

President Obama doesn’t like the Kardashians. No that’s not another classic Kanye West rant, that statement actually comes from the President himself. In a recent interview FLOTUS Michelle Obama revealed that her hubby doesn’t allow daughters Sasha, 10 and Malia, 13, to watch the hit reality show Keeping Up With The Kardashians. The most powerful couple in the world feels that some of the show’s content goes against how they’re raising their girls so the show has become off limits in the White House. But are the Kardashians really all that bad? We don’t think so and to prove it we’ve come up with five lessons everyone could learn from the Kardashians.

Focus And Get Your Money Right
Say what you want about these reality show divas, but when it comes to making money and building an empire, the Kardashians are definitely near the top of the pack. With momager Kris at the helm (Am I the only one thinking she needs to teach a course?!), Kim, Khloe and Kourtney have their hands in everything from a chain of clothing stores and a line in Sears, to perfumes, endorsement deals and individual spin offs of their hit show. They may appear to be living the easy life, but clearly these girls are focused and working hard! Their name is an incorporated brand and that doesn’t come from slacking on your pimpin. If any of us hope to live life in the fab lane ala the Kardashians, we need to be focused and ready when opportunity comes knocking.

Honesty Is The Best Policy
When it comes to expressing themselves the Kardashians definitely don’t hold their tongues! Even when they know the truth is going to hurt, they hold no punches and always tell it like it is. Does it cause some heated arguments, sure, but in the end telling the truth is always the best option. Many of us could stand to adopt the Kardashian ‘straight, no chaser’ mentality. Just think of how many issues we could avoid if we didn’t sugarcoat life.

Be Yourself
When most of us think of ‘The Kardashians’ we tend to lump them all together, but one thing you can learn from the Kardashian family is that it’s ok to be yourself. Sure Kim, Khloe and Kourtney are a brand by association, but they each clearly have their own styles, personalities and lives. They aren’t afraid to branch off from the brand and from one another to do and live the life that’s best for them. So many young people, and even adults, try so hard to fit in and be like everyone else, but the lesson to learn is that being unique isn’t a bad thing. There’s only one fab you, so show it off to the world!

Always Look Your Best
Whether it’s a trip to the mall, a business lunch, or just lounging around the house, the Kardashian sister always look fabulous! Very rarely, if ever, do you catch them not on their best game when they’re out and about. These ladies know that all eyes are on them and they never know who’s watching so they make sure to put their best foot forward at all times. Most of us don’t have a gang of paparazzi following us at all times, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t always be on point. You never know when an opportunity may come your way and you don’t want to get caught looking like you just rolled out of bed.

Family First
They fight, they yell and swear to never speak to each other again, but I guarantee you if you tried to mess with one, you’d have the entire Kardashian clan hunting you down Warrior style. No matter what issue comes their way, they never let it make them forget that the most important thing they have in life at the end of the day is each other. No matter what we may think of them, they one thing that is undeniable is that this family truly loves each other and even if we can’t relate to anything else in their lives, the close bond they share with one another is one that we can learn from and carry over int

CupcakKe Reveals Abusive Boyfriend Led Her To Contemplate Suicide

Months of abuse led to the suicidal tweet posted by Chicago native CupcakKe, earlier this month. In a lengthy message posted to her Twitter account over the weekend, the 21-year-old rapper admitted that she’s been battling depression, brought on by an abusive ex-boyfriend.

In the post titled “my disturbing read,” CupcakKe accuses a man named, Christopher Terrell, of stealing her credit cards and terrorizing her throughout their relationship.

“This is someone I’ve been dating for the past [five] months,” she wrote in the now deleted post. “Out of the kindness of my heart I gave this man over [$30,000] during this period [of] time because I understand how it feels to be without (especially after me being homeless). He also has threatened to shoot my mom in the face [and] has threatened me on multiple occasions [and] said he can do it because he will get away with it!!!! I have screenshots, recorded calls, bank statements and all types of proof.

“Me being stupid in love I have [taken] this man back multiple times but every time I take him back the abuse gets [worse],” she added.

Further in the post, CupcakKe explains that her depression from feeling trapped in the relationship resulted in her contemplating suicide. “He [has] snatched off my wig in public, broke phones [and] continues to traumatize me every step of the way! This is what [led] to my ‘I’m committing suicide’ tweet…I have called the cops multiple times and they have yet to do anything about it,” she wrote adding that Terrell is threatening her with revenge porn. She also admitted to posting his number on social media, and the numbers of women that he “plotted” with  to steal her money.

“Yes I am wrong for that,” she said. “But by me sending this message out it is not for harm to be sent his way, it’s for the police to make things way more serious!!!! Also this message is for every young girl or anyone in general that is struggling with abuse right now. I get u (once you see the first sign) leave!!!”

Kelly Rowland Says Her Highly-Anticipated Project Is "Definitely Coming"

Six years ago, Kelly Rowland released her fourth studio album titled Talk a Good Game. The project boasted hit singles like "Kisses Down Low" and the transparent "Dirty Laundry." Now, the Houston native is preparing to release a project that'll surely satisfy fans' patient earbuds.

In an interview with Billboard, Rowland shared her hopes for putting out a new body of work and the pressure that she's encountered since she's been in the studio. "This is by far the longest, most pressure-filled process ever, only because I know what it's supposed to be and I have been so hard on myself. I know it," she said. "And it's the first time I've said it out loud. I've been extremely hard on myself. But it's definitely coming, and I'm more so excited about this project than anything else."

The news follows the recent release of Rowland's "Kelly" track, which was met with critical acclaim in November 2018. In addition to preparing the release of new music, the "Motivation" singer discussed fans' wish for a Destiny's Child reunion. The rumors have been fueled by social media photographs of Rowland with either Beyonce or Michelle or all three, especially during Beyonce's past Coachella performance. But Rowland assures readers that it's not what they think.

"It's so funny. I guess every time people see us together, they just see music but I see sisterhood, and that's what we are and that's what me, her, Michelle [Williams] and Solange and I are. People see us all together, they immediately think music. I'm like, no. Just family." As Rowland previously mentioned Solange, she hopes to one day work with her again.

"I'm a huge fan," she said. "I love her writing and how detailed and particular she is. I always wanted to figure out how the heck she has so many different layers of harmonies when she is constructing these vocals, and it's so complex but simple. It's genius. It's the genius in her genius mind that she has in there." One of the last times the pair collaborated was on Rowland's "Simply Deep" track off her debut solo album of the same name. Solange also penned a few songs off the same project. Fast forward to 2016, and Rowland's vocals were featured on Solange's iconic A Seat at the Table.

Teyana Taylor To Pay Homage To Ballroom Culture In "WTP" Video

Teyana Taylor aims to keep her hot streak of innovative videos coming thanks to this recent announcement. Taking to Instagram on Wednesday (Jan. 9), the "Gonna Love Me" singer will show adoration to ballroom culture in the visual for "WTP."

Directed by Gregory "Beef" Jones, The Aunties Inc., and Taylor herself, the Harlemite takes viewers on her journey to the expression-filled space where she hopes to rack up 10s across the board from a group of judges. The premise of the video also seems to follow a mockumentary format airing on a fictional network named FEMTV. Alongside Taylor, other men and women get ready to display their talents and confidence on the ballroom floor.

"WTP" is featured on the mother-of-one's sophomore album, K.T.S.E., which was released in June 2018. While the rollout's controversy didn't entirely muddle the excitement behind the project's debut, Taylor said she was sold on the idea that her album would be treated as the biggest out of G.O.O.D. Music's string of releases last year.

"I didn't know ahead of time that there wouldn't be any singles or visuals. But I knew that it was going to be the five-album thing," she said during a HOT 97 interview. "[Kanye] wanted [my album] to be last, he wanted mine to be the biggest. That's the way they sauced it up. I was sold."

The video will debut on Jan. 19. Check out the teaser below.
