It’s nice to see a more diverse group of women get shine in the media these days, and by diverse, I do mean women of color, but more specifically, the shades of black women we get to see on TV and in magazines. And not only are these women beautiful, but they are confident, and provide young girls with words of encouragement to embrace the skin they’re in. Here are 14 women who have done just that in a culture that spends too much time celebrating one homogeneous look.

Kelly Rowland Gets Her PDA On With Husband Tim, Shares More Pics Of Her Growing Baby Bump [Photos]

Pregnancy, and happiness in general, look oh so good on Kelly Rowland. The singer shared the news that she is expecting her first child with husband and manager Tim Witherspoon last month, almost a month after tying the knot with her man in Costa Rica in May. The couple have kept their relationship before and after getting married, very private, but the singer decided to share a photo this past weekend of her and her hubby having a rare PDA moment.

So beautiful! Rowland didn’t caption the image, but as the saying goes, “a picture is worth a thousand words.” Speaking of pictures, the singer has also been sharing more and more of her growing baby bump, including candid images of her kicking it on the beach in a mesh top and others of her not holding back in the gym. Rowland has always been one to enjoy working on her fitness (inspiring the rest of us couch potatoes to do better), and she’s not letting pregnancy keep her out of the gym. But no worries! Rowland’s personal trainer was standing nearby to make sure the mom-to-be wasn’t overdoing it.

Check out more images of the beauty and her baby bump below and share your thoughts.

‘It’s Going On MY Album:’ Michelle Williams Makes It Clear That ‘Say Yes’ Isn’t A Destiny’s Child Song

Destiny’s Child fans were ecstatic to learn that the trio would be somewhat reuniting for Michelle Williams’ new single “Say Yes.” And somehow, in all of the excitement, some people interpreted the track as a sign that a new Destiny’s Child album is in the works. Unfortunately, that isn’t the case. But we’re content for now seeing the ladies coming together to promote one another’s solo careers.

“There was an interview we did some years ago saying that we would participate, in whatever capacity, on each other’s solo projects,” Michelle explained to MTV News. “Whether that is appearing with Beyoncé from time to time on her tours, or on shows, or Kelly’s album, so this was my turn now to have them on an original song on my album.”

Michelle adds that it was awesome being able to reunite with her former group members.

“Filming the video for ‘Say Yes’ was fun. It was amazing. It was incredible.”

Not to be confused, though, Michelle made it clear that “Say Yes” is her project and simply features her DC-3 sisters.

“It feels wonderful [to work with them], and no matter how much we try to say it’s not a Destiny’s Child song because it’s not going on a Destiny’s Child album. It’s going on MY album featuring Beyoncé and Kelly. It’s the same way Kelly featured us on her album. But no matter how much we try to separate ourselves when we’re together, it is what it is. This is the group!’” she said laughing.

While we would loveeeeee another Destiny’s Child album, we’ll take what we can get for now

Jay Z, Beyoncé Start “On The Run” Tour With Support Of Kelly Rowland; Share Footage Of Blue Ivy’s Birth And Wedding

June 26th, 2014 - By Victoria Uwumarogie

And so it begins. The On The Run tour kicked off last night in Miami, and of course, Jay Z and Beyoncé put on quite the show. They delivered a massive 42-song set with quite a few wardrobe changes on both of their parts, and performed both their biggest hits, as well as their hits together for fans. I actually plan to check out the show when it arrives in New Jersey, so I didn’t spend too much time on Instagram watching all the videos everyone posted from the show. But a few images that did catch my attention included seeing a very preggers and very cute Kelly Rowland supporting her friends at the show, and the fact that Bey and Jay included footage of some important moments in their relationship in the show, like the birth of Blue Ivy and their wedding.

There were other very beautiful moments that were shared on the Jumbotron screen during their performances, but I don’t want to spoil too much for you (and myself). But you can check out the footage of Blue Ivy fresh out the womb, the day Beyoncé became Mrs. Carter, and a gorgeous and glowing Kelly Rowland below. The On the Run tour, despite reports of dipping ticket sales after that whole Met Gala drama, is already being touted by Forbes as one of the most successful tours of all time, and it’s just getting started.

If there was any doubt in your mind that Kelly Rowland is indeed pregnant, direct your attention to this photo she posted on her Instagram just hours ago.

Given that Kelly has been making appearances and even performing recently, we didn’t know how far along she was. But since she knows the sex of her baby (boy), we assumed it had to have been more than a couple of months.  And sure enough, this picture confirms it. That belly is pokin’ and we love it!

Kelly is too cute!

Maybe her arms look a tad bit bigger but as the saying goes, she’s all belly.

I don’t Kelly or anything but judging from the type of relationships she’s had, I’m happy that she seems to be in a good place right now.

Congrats to her and her husband.

Watch: Michelle Williams’ “Say Yes” Video Featuring Destiny’s Child

A few days ago, we let you know that there would be a video for Michelle Williams’ new gospel song “Say Yes” and today on “Good Morning America,” Williams released it. Just as the song calls for, the video is colorful and vibrant, Michelle is doing a little bop and two step while people dance and sing along with the ladies of Destiny’s Child. I was really on the fence about this song when I first heard it, but the more I listen, the more I dig it. And the video just makes it all that much better.

Take a look at the visuals in the fun video below and tell us what you think.

The single is featured on Michelle’s upcoming album, Journey to Freedom due out on September 9.

Up next for Michelle is working as a mentor on the new new Oxygen show “Fix My Choir.” along with gospel great Shirley Caesar and Mary Mary.

“Inconsiderate Piece of #$%$”: Writer Slammed For Saying Kelly Rowland’s Unborn Child Will Be Blue Ivy’s Personal Assistant

June 13th, 2014 - By Victoria Uwumarogie

Kelly Rowland

Something that caught my eye on social media and disappointed me was an article found on Yahoo, but from The Wire, announcing that Kelly Rowland is expecting her first child with husband and manager, Tim Weatherspoon. This is of course is a beautiful thing and a happy time for the singer, but what disappointed me was the fact that the entire story, along with the title, Kelly Rowland Pregnant with Future Personal Assistant to Blue Ivy, was less about celebrating, and more about straight dissing Rowland. Considering that I’ve met Rowland (and she’s super sweet), I didn’t understand why this person seemed so hellbent on trying to s**t on something worth celebrating like pregnancy and motherhood, but Mr. Price Peterson tried it. Here’s just part of what he said in a piece that included a photo of Beyoncé and Jay Z…:

Blue Ivy needs a posse. Well! It appears that former Destiny’s Child Kelly Rowland has heeded that need (or at least has moved to honor a Beyoncé-decreed legal obligation) and has become pregnant! That’s right, following her whirlwind romance, Skype engagement, and under-publicized wedding to a gentleman named Tim Witherspoon, Kelly Rowland has announced her pregnancy on Instagram! The cryptic announcement was really just a pair of baby Air Jordans next to a regular-sized pair and the caption “I’ll be stuntin like my daddy.” That’s about it as far as pregnancy confirmations, though, so please be advised this entire incident miiight just be an example of a woman buying baby clothes for herself before getting pregnant. Would you put that sort of thing past Kelly Rowland? Don’t answer that. Let’s just assume she’s pregnant. But I know what you’re thinking: How exactly could a possible boy-child become the first member of Blue Ivy’s “ma gurls”? That is for you and your outdated gender notions to work through. Congratulations to Kelly Rowland and Blue Ivy Carter! May the future Rowland-Witherspoon child be as fastidious at signing non-disclosure agreements as he/she will be at carrying out Starbucks orders.

I don’t know if Peterson thought he was being comical or if he really has some type of personal beef with Rowland’s fabulous self, but the people who saw the article made it very clear that his statements were disrespectful and unacceptable:

“Price Peterson, You Insensitive, Inconsiderate Piece of #$%$…You should be ashamed of yourself. This is not your phone, its not a personal text message, its Yahoo”

“Can someone please tell me why a picture of Beyonce and JZ is front and center on an article about Kelly Rowland? Why does the author disrespect Kelly and her unborn child by making the assumption that she is trying to follow in Beyonce’s footsteps, that her unborn child will be assistant to Blue Ivy, and that her child will be taking orders at Star Bucks? If I were Kelly, I would be going off right now. But she has more class than that, unlike the person who wrote this BS.”
“So I’m confused was this supposed to be amusing, because it is absolutely not! So happy to see that the majority of readers are disgusted, disappointed, and revolted by this asinine mediocre writing, that is so disrespectful to a mother that is celebrating her first child.” 
“What a disrespectful and offensive headline! It wasn’t enough to somehow make Kelly Rowland’s happy news about Beyonce’s baby instead, but then you had to go the extra mile to offend Kelly by implying her baby is less valuable than Beyonce’s, less important, and at best she can expect to spend her future grabbing coffee for Blue Ivy and scheduling her appointments.”
“The beginning of this article is out of line. You’re talking about a baby that hasn’t even been born yet and you’re degrading him or her and the parents. How insensitive and pathetic can you be?”

Considering how excited I personally was to hear about this big news (and just to see her get married and start a new chapter in her life), I don’t really have words for the need to put a damper on what should be a special moment. But what do you think?

Is Kelly Rowland Hiding A Baby Bump?

It looks like it may be time to place Kelly Rowland on baby bump watch. Since the Billboard Awards, rumors have been circulating that the newly married songstress is with child. Interestingly, her last few public appearances have only seemed to fuel those rumors. In addition to appearing a bit fuller in the face and sporting that expectant mother’s glow, Kelly has been rocking her clothing a lot looser than usual.

Just last year, Kelly expressed a desire to have a child, but reasoned that she wasn’t ready yet because she was still enjoying being “selfish.”

“Right now, I’m a bit selfish, a lot—I was gonna say a little—but I’m still selfish,” she explained. “I like my time, I like to wake up whenever I want to and I like to come and go as I please. I don’t know if I’m ready to share that time with another person, I don’t wanna mess them up.”

It’s unclear if Kelly has experienced a change of heart, but we’re certainly about to find out. High-waisted skirts and loose-fitting shirts can only hide a swelling baby bump for but so long. Kelly tied the knot with manager and longtime boyfriend, Tim Witherspoon, last month in Costa Rica.

Check out some photos from Kelly’s latest public appearances. Let us know what you think.

“We’re Connected”: Kelly Rowland Speaks On Finding Her Soul Mate…Beyoncé

Just last month (May 9 to be exact) the uber-beautiful Kelly Rowland tied the knot to her manager, Tim Witherspoon, in a private ceremony in Costa Rica. She hasn’t talked about marriage and this new stage in her life, but from the glow we’ve seen on her skin lately, it’s safe to say that she’s on cloud nine. And while Witherspoon could qualify as her soul mate in a romantic way, in an interview with Hello Beautiful, Rowland says she believes in soul mates in the friendship realm as well. She said that some of her best friends are people she can’t live without and that she considers her soul mates:

I believe in soulmates. I believe soulmates are not just in relationships, but they’re in friendships. I have soulmates through Beyonce and Michelle and Angie and Solange and LaLa. I have soulmates. I’m so thankful for that too because I think they understand you. If there’s something on my heart or my mind, before I can even pick up the phone, one of them is calling me saying, “What are you doing? Are you ok?” We’re connected and I think that’s such a beautiful thing. It’s the greatest gift you can have.

And in case you weren’t aware, Angie is Angie Beyince, Beyoncé’s cousin, and VP of operations for Beyoncé’s production company, Parkwood Entertainment. But anywho, do you have girlfriends that you believe you’re connected to on a deeper level? Be thankful if you do, because these women are a gift! Check out Rowland’s full interview over at Hello Beautiful and share your thoughts.
