4 Very Popular Recording Artists That Wrote Lyrics About Miscarriage and Pregnancy Loss

Earlier this year, we blogged about the fact that Harry Styles‘ first single off his self-titled debut solo album, “Sign of The Times” is about a woman dying in childbirth  and this week, we reminded you that Lady Antebellum‘s Hillary Scott penned “Thy Will”to to help herself cope with her 2016 miscarriage.

But did you know there have been a couple of famous rappers who have also released songs with lyrics about pregnancy loss, fertility and miscarriage?

Shawn “Jay Z” Carter might just takes the prize for doing it the most.

In his recent song, 4:44, off the same-titled album, the platinum-selling chart-topper seemingly blames himself for his wife’s Beyonce’s miscarriages and losses by rapping, “I apologize for all the stillborns/ ‘Cause I wasn’t present, your body wouldn’t accept it.”

It’s more likely he was being colloquial and was probably referencing the miscarriages and not stillborn which occur in less than 1% of all pregnancies and happens when a baby is born deceased after 20 weeks gestation.

Later on in that same song, he raps about the praises of having twins, naturally, an acknowledgment is probably an indicator that the duo were anticipating getting help with their fertility from science via IVF.

“Look, I apologize often womanize / Took for my child to be born / See through a woman’s eyes / Took for these natural twins to believe in miracles / Took me too long for this song / I don’t deserve you,” he rapped.

This is not the first time the biz mogul has penned lyrics about pregnancy loss. In 2012, his song “Glory” also addressed a miscarriage Beyonce had before the couple found success and finally welcomed their first child, Blue Ivy Carter.

“False alarms and false starts /All made better by the sound of your heart / All the pain of the last time / I prayed so hard it was the last time,” he opens up in the song.

Later on in the song, he raps, “Last time the miscarriage was so tragic We was afraid you’d disappear, but nah, baby, you magic,” referring to the fear that Blue would have been miscarried too.

Tender huh?

Female rapper Nicki Minaj also seemingly opened up  about a child she lost either to abortion or miscarriage in her 2014 song “All Things Go” on her album “The Pinkprint.

While referencing her baby as an angel watching over her baby brother Micaiah, (who she calls Caiah), she raps:  “I want Caiah to go to college just to say we did it,” she raps about her younger brother Micaiah then adds, “My child with Aaron, would’ve been 16 any minute / So in some ways I feel like Caiah is the both of them / It’s like he’s Cai’s little angel looking over him.”

In a Rolling Stones article published that year also, the Queens native reveals that she had an abortion at age 15 and that she remains haunted by it:

Minaj’s first love was an older guy from Queens she dated while attending the prestigious Manhattan performing-arts high school LaGuardia. When she discovered she was pregnant, “I thought I was going to die,” she admits.

“I was a teenager. It was the hardest thing I’d ever gone through.” Minaj says about the decision that “haunted me all my life,” though it was the right choice for her at the time. “It’d be contradictory if I said I wasn’t pro-choice. I wasn’t ready. I didn’t have anything to offer a child.”

It was never confirmed, but a few folks hypothesized she was singing bout that same child in that song.

Pregnancy Loss is still quite taboo so it’s great awareness building to have A-List stars include it in lyrics to their music, we think.

Our Faves Came to Slay at the CMAs Red Carpet this Week

cma

I almost forgot to bring you guys the run down of the gorgeous celeb mamas we’ve covered in the past who attended the CMAs (Country Music Awards) at the Bridgestone Arena on Wednesday (November 2) in Nashville, Tennessee.

Hillary Scott and her Lady Antebellum band mates made the rounds  in front of the flashing lights with Scott sporting a gorgeous white Pamella Roland gown. She looked amaze-balls…I mean better than I have ever seen her! Gorg!

Jennifer Garner went with black as well in a floor length slim fitting Jenny Packham gown with an adorned halter top. She looked youthful and refreshing! Beautiful!

Some of yall who don’t follow this genre of music might not have known that Britney Spears‘ baby sister Jamie Lynn Spears  is an accomplished and successful country music singer and award-winning songwriter of hits for other artists.

 

jamie-lynn-spears

Jessie James Decker showed out in a sequined halter gown with sexy side cut outs from Jay Godfrey NY.  I loved her loose ringlets that framed her face and her nude matte make up was perfect! C’est Bonne!

I loved the gorgeous J. Mendel one sleeve cap sleeve dress that Jennifer Nettles wore with the sheer under blue applique and that tangerine popped against her olive tone skin.  Nettles rarely does wrong on the red carpet. She has a great figure.

Finally, Carrie Underwood hosted and walked away with the Female Vocalist of the Year award but before walked the red carpet in a beaded dusty pink Michael Cinco halter gown with Swarovski crystals, pearls and scattered organza flowers. She accessorized the dress with triangle-shaped Butani diamond earrings and diamond rings by Hearts on Fire and Harry Kotlar. (I borrowed US Weekly‘s description. tee hee)

During the show, she changed outfits 10 times, paying homage to past First Ladies of Country including: Reba McEntire‘s plunging red dress from 1993 to Dolly Parton‘s famous silver gown from the 1970s; and Shania Twain and others.

Wonderful!

The 2016 People’s Choice Awards Fashion, Stage Crashers and Sheryl Underwood Oh My!

People's choice

Yesterday was the People’s Choice Award and we were excited to learn that many of the celebrity moms we’ve covered in the past win! Kristen Bell won for Favorite Female Cable Actress.  Sandra Bullock won for Favorite Movie Actress. Ellen Pompeo and the Grey’s Anatomy  cast won for Favorite Network TV Drama  while Sara Gilbert‘s The Talk walked away with the Favorite Daytime Talk Hosting Team.  Britney Spears won for favorite female Social Media celebrity. Hillary Scott and her Lady Antebellum won for Favorite Country group and finally Carrie Underwood won for Favorite Country Female Singer.

 

the talk

While Gilbert was giving her speech after being presented by Long and others, she was interrupted by a random dude who crashed the stage to promote his album.

“Wow. Thank you so much! This is amazing,” the new mom started. “I think we think of ourselves as kind of the oddballs of TV or we’re like a motley crew…” She stopped short before the stage crasher grabbed the mic.

The guy, Zicario Nicasio, was charged with a misdemeanor, E! reports.

On the red carpet, other of our past Bellyitch Bumpwatch moms sizzled. Christina Milian wore a floor length low cut sequinned dress. Kate Hudson looked sharp in a White with Jimmy Choo clutch, Brian Atwood shoes and Jorge Adeler earrings.  Sequins was the thing and I loved Nia Long‘s black sequinned Tom Ford dress.  Claire Danes looked dainty in a Burberry dress, Jimmy Choo, Kwiat jewelry and Tyler Alexander clutch.

My fave look was Ellen Pompeo in  Michael Kors Collection blouse and skirt with Kwiat jewelry, Christian Louboutin shoes, and a Tyler Alexandra clutch!
