Boobs or Butts! Would You Go Under the Knife to Get One?

Some people are absolutely obsessed with boobs, while others can not get enough of luscious, plump derrieres. In some cases, if you have boobs, you naturally lust for a bum. And if you have a fatty, you lust for some twins up top. Or maybe you are dying to have thick kissable lips, a button nose, or not so big ears.

Welcome to the never-ending cycle of body envy.

We live in a world where, for the right price, you can fix your not-so-loved body parts and be your mind's version of perfection.
The list of things that you can cosmetically change about yourself are endless, yet deciding whether to go under the knife and become physically enhanced is not a choice that should be made lightly. In a world where you see both body enhancement magic and horrors, it is for sure not a decision that should be made overnight.

During an interview for Lifetime’s The Conversation With Amanda de Cadenet, actress Zoe Saldana said that she has considered getting a boob job. She mentions that if "an old man was having a midlife crisis and can buy a Porsche and date a 17-year-old, I can buy myself a pair and be the sexiest soccer mom you've ever seen."

Although Saldana is a celebrity, she is not alone. Women, of every status, are constantly in talks of getting work done. But the real question is: Are the results worth it? Now I’m sure everyone has a body part they wouldn’t mind tweaking or totally demolishing (love handles and saddle bags, anyone?), but when it comes to plastic surgery, there are things to keep in mind. If you come to the conclusion that all the money spent and pain endured will make you a better you than by all means call that doctor.

At this point in my life plastic surgery isn’t something I would consider. My body isn’t perfect, but that is nothing some exercise couldn’t resolve. But who is to say what may happen a few years down the line. A lift, tuck and snip may be in my future.

When deciding to go under the knife or have cosmetic alterations, it is really up to you to draw the line (figuratively, of course). A total body lift may not be for you, but a few shots of Botox may be more your speed. Plastic surgery is one of those things that you have to figure out on your own. It is the last thing you want to do because you feel pressure or want to fulfill someone else's desires.

With Americans spending almost 14 million dollars on cosmetic procedures in 2011, if you decide to get nipped and tucked you are not alone. It’s pretty clear that women often weigh their options when it comes to surgery, and there's definitely nothing wrong with considering it. If you decide to follow through, I hope you come out looking fierce!

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.
