9 Things You Should Never Eat on a First Date

The perfect guy wants to take you on the perfect date. You're pretty sure it won't be the typical dinner and a movie deal, but a bit of grub is definitely the menu. Trust us, even if you and your latest hottie are going rock climbing in über comfy sweats before dinner, you need to conscious of how you stuff your face. Now, we're not suggesting that you have to curb your appetite, dig into a salad or pretend you're a starving actress in a literal sense. It's about keeping it cute as you eat well and maintain healthy conversation.

With the help of our lovely followers, we've compiled a list of things you should NOT eat during the first date. If your crush is taking you out on a romantic rendezvous, be sure to keep the sticky, messy, get-stuck-in-your-teeth foods off your radar.

See the list below...
1. Spinach
Ruining an eye-gazing moment with a spinach tooth smile is dreadfully embarrassing. Avoid it by staying away from the green stuff!
Suggested by: @Trich22

2. Onions
Flavorful, yes! Great on a first date, no! This veggie will destroy your Colgate fresh breath and come pouring through your skin. Don't take a chance on devastating your natural aromas.
Suggested by: @BrownButtaFli, @MaybachLady, @LauBlancar

3. Corn
Pesky little kernels are definitely off the menu. There's no reason to spend the majority of your evening digging between your teeth. So not cute!
Suggested by: @AR6ON

4. Ribs
It may be hard to stay away from a saucy, tender, succulent rack, but it's a must! You don't want him to remember a BBQ-faced, finger-licking Vixen, do you?
Suggested by: @MsMFer

5. Garlic
It's the kissing cousin to onions. The same rules apply!
Suggested by: @IndiaisHilaria, @MaybachLady

6. Wings
Finger-licking good and dangerously messy! Make sure to dabble in these only when the two of your are comfortable during a later date!
Suggested by: @FemmesWBenefits

7. Spaghetti or Any Other Pastas
Arguably, this food is an edible no-no. While pasta seems to be the romantic dish, the banging forks and pasta noodling slurping just isn't a turn-on.
Suggested by: @Blink66Spalon

8. Soup
Slurping the broth from a spoon? Never.

9. Oysters or Crab Legs
Pulling, cracking, biting, sucking... Sounds fun, no? It can be, but when it comes to having a first date meal, choosing crabs legs is a seafood-smelling fail.

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.

Trina Braxton’s Ex-Husband, Gabe Solis, Dies After Battle With Cancer

Gabe Solis, the ex-husband of Trina Braxton, lost his battle with cancer, Thursday (Dec. 20),  TMZ reports. He was 43.

Solis passed away at his home in Texas, surrounded by friends and family, according to the outlet. No official details have been released about his passing.

Solis had reportedly been keeping his cancer battle private. His death came as a shock to his loved ones. On Friday (Dec. 21), Braxton seemingly mourned the loss of her ex-husband with a cryptic Instagram meme reading, “I need a hug..E bottle of wine.”

The former couple tied the knot in 2003, and appeared together on previous seasons of WEtv’s Braxton Family Values. Despite finalizing their divorce in 2015, Braxton and Solis confronted lingering issues from their marriage during an episode of Iyanla: Fix My Life, earlier in the year.

Braxton has since moved on to a new relationship, but remained friends with Solis.
