Rules For Navigating Social Media While In a Relationship (CC: Rob Kardashian)

Another day, another man scorned on Twitter. Rob Kardashian managed to make Rita Ora a trending topic after accusing her of cheating on him with 20 different men. In just a matter of minutes, she went from RocNation's pretty princess to suspected swindler, exposed to the harsh comments of Twitter addicts everywhere. Whether the accusations are true or not, we can't help but sympathize with Rita. No one deserves to have their personal business aired out by someone else—especially by an ex-boyfriend.  Boo'd up vixens should tread lightly when it comes to social media. If you don't, you could be the subject of unwanted attention. - Nicole Brown

The course to cyberspace harmony never runs smooth, but these rules could help:

1.  Stay Connected
Those in a serious relationship should definitely be Facebook friends and Twitter/Instagram followers of each other. If he has a problem with any of the above, consider it a HUGE red flag.

2.  Keep The Likes To A Minimum
It's wonderful that you think your boyfriend is the best thing since sliced apple pie; however, that should've be announced every day. If you retweet and/or comment on every single social media move he makes, you look desperate and bored. Commentators will also mistake you for a stalker: no bueno.

3. Keep Your Spats Private
While it is sometimes hilarious to watch couples air out their dirty laundry on our timelines, the fact is neither of you knows how to resolve anything in an adult way. You're just a tweet or status away from an embarrassing break-up.

4. Check It Before You Change It
Every girl loves the moment they can change their relationship status from "single" to "In a relationship with _____." And every girl hates the moment their request is denied.  1.)  Don't change your online status unless you're sure this is the real deal and 2.) Make sure your man is on board with the idea. Don't be stupid.

5. Let The Past Stay In The Past
Yes, we get it. Not everygirl hates their ex-boyfriend. Sometimes you stay connected as friends. But, please: make your new significant other aware of this and alert your ex that there will be no reunion with you.

6. Remember Everything's Permanent
That picture of you backing it up on a handsome stranger during a girl's night out will live in cyberspace forever. Sure, you meant no harm, but your man may think otherwise when he sees it. Be aware of the things you say and post—those bad choices will always come back to haunt you.

7. Don't Get Mad If He Doesn't See Your Tweet or Comment
So you're one of those girls that likes to tweet sweet nothings to your love throughout the day? Please don't get mad when he doesn't respond right away (or at all). He had a life before you and will continue to have one now. Assume he hasn't seen it instead of jumping to conclusions.

8. Don't Get Addicted
If you spend your entire day on the computer, you will become obsessed with your boyfriend's online activities. This also leads to stalker behavior (refer back to rule #2)

9. Don't Accept Your Ex's Friend Request Unless...
you both agree that their is no interest in a romantic relationship and your current beau is OK with it. You've opened up a whole other can of worms if you feel otherwise.

10. Don't Flirt
This is common knowledge. The only man you should be flirting with is your own. If you want to bat your eyelashes at someone new: stay single.

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.
