kelly-clarkson-sia

Our two-time Bellyitch Bumpwatch mama Kelly Clarkson is trending because of her phenomenal cover of Sia‘s “Chandalier” while wearing one of the Australian artist’s signature eye-covering bleach blonde wigs.

The American Idol alum stood in front of a gorgeous flowered wall in her Nashville and belted out an a capella version of the 2014 hit.

“I don’t know how she does this ’cause, ya know, you can’t see,” Clarkson joked afterward of Sia’s hair. “But it’s also kind of awesome, because you’re in your own little world when you’re performing … I love that song. Everybody loves that song.”

Sia, who has penned hit songs for Rihanna, Katy Perry and others in addition to her own, has a signature look the includes half black, half white hair.

Clarkson ended the performance by promoting her second annual all-star Miracle on Broadway Christmas benefit show, set for December 16th at downtown Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena.

Kelly Clarkson: Pregnancy Was ‘Horrible’, Made Hubby Get Vasectomy

Twitter

Twitter

Kelly Clarkson didn’t think pregnancy was “beautiful” or “magical” like everyone says and had such a horrific experience that she forced her husband, Brandon Blackstock, to get a vasectomy.

In a recent article with Refinery29, she explained her experience with back-to-back pregnancies which also included massive weight gain and intense public and media attention that wasn’t always too kind.

“It’s horrible. Nothing is beautiful, nothing is magical. Whatever, you’re that person that gets that pregnancy, good for you,” she said. “But I will remind my children every day of their lives what I [went through].”

And not only was her pregnancy with daughter River Rose challenging, so was her pregnancy with son Remington Alexander which she said was even worse and prompted her decision to have ‘no more kids.’

“I was literally pregnant with Remi, and I was like, ‘You are getting fixed,” she said of her convo with Blackstock. “This will never happen to me again. If something happens, it’s a miracle of God. I literally told my Ob/Gyn on the table while open, ‘If I get pregnant again, I will find you!”

Clarkson overcame being the child of a divorce and having an absentee father who only wanted something to do with her once she became famous.

Right before giving birth to Remington, she returned to perform on the final season of the TV talent show which made her famous American Idol.  

While performing her ballad “Piece By Piece about her disappointment of a dad and her wonderful stepdad, she become emotional and paused singing several times and almost broke down in tears before ending the song with the lyrics h“He’ll never break her heart, he’ll love her,” in reference to her husband’s relationship with their daughter.

#PhilandoCastile and #AltonSterling: Celeb Moms Who’ve Spoken Out About Killings

candles

Tonight, we’ve reached a tipping point in America as several Dallas police officers were killed during a rally to protest recent police shootings. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of those men and women who put their lives at risk daily to protect and serve.

Here is a rundown of what sparked the rally followed by solidarity messages from celeb women we’ve featured on the blog:

Within 48 hours, two black men in “concealed weapon license to carry” states exercising their rights to have guns in their pockets were nonetheless shot and killed by police officers. Both killings, one execution style and the other in front of a 4-year old child during a routine traffic stop, has sparked outrage.

Alton Sterling was selling CDs outside of a grocery store in a high crime neighborhood and exercising his Second Amendment rights as an American, carried a weapon to protect himself. Someone reported to the police that Sterling had it out waving at people and after scuffle with the officers who arrived at the scene and eventually took Sterling down, another took out his revolver and emptied a couple of rounds into Sterling’s body before falling off the man’s chest and shooting a few more shots. The store owner and another eyewitness filmed the shootings on their smartphones and circulated it on social media. The outrage has been swift.

That same night, another man, Philando Castile, was driving with his girlfriend Diamond Reynolds and her 4-year old daughter in the backseat when he was pulled over for a busted tail light. Diamond turned on her Facebook Live and shared the incident as it happened with her followers on the social media site. The world was witness to the moments immediately after one officer shot him as he reached into his pocket to pull out his driver’s license as asked to do so by the officer, per Reynold’s account. The officer can be overheard on the video saying “ignorance”.

As with other past police killings of unarmed black men and boys, many parents have been shaken by the incident especially parents of young black boys. In social media, many have expressed fear that when their children grow up, they will be seen as menacing threats simply for being in the skin they were born in and could be the next hashtag.

I know personally, I’ve talked to my kids again as my husband and I do periodically throughout their lives to make sure they are aware what they need to do to escape a possible police encounter alive. My father in law is a retired veteran police detective and my husband’s uncle was a police officer. We fear for the lives of blue and believe Blue Lives Matter as well, but at the same time, we are frightened by the pattern of brutality among some officers.

Phew! Pregnancy #2 is Smoother Sailing for Kelly Clarkson

kelly clarkson

Kelly Clarkson is having a much better second pregnancy. The multi-platinum powerhouse singer looked fresh and upbeat at the Citizen Watch Company‘s New York Corporate Offices Grand Opening yesterday, wearing a cute charcoal grey tuxedo blazer and black and white striped blouse over black cuffed jeans.

The American Idol season one winner had a rough pregnancy with now 1-year old daughter River, she told BBC‘s “Radio 1 Breakfast Show”. “Like, I was hospitalized. It was jut kind of a bad pregnancy, so I had to take off way more than normal.”

This time is easier sailing. The “Heartbreak Song” singer announced the news of her pregnancy mid-concert during this summer’s “Piece By Piece” international tour.

She eventually had to cancel the final legs of that tour by doctor’s orders to rest her voice, but it will also give the second-time mom-to-be a chance to take it easier and prepare for life with two kids under 2. River was born just last year June 2014 and her son will be delivered early winter 2016.

Clarkson and her husband Brandon Blackstock are still practically newly-weds having just married in October 2013.

Kelly Clarkson’s baby is due to arrive on June 18

Kelly Clarkson and Brandon Blackstock‘s daughter is due on June 18, according to their Babies R Us registry.
Kelly Clarkson’s baby is reportedly due on June 18.
The ‘Beautiful Disaster’ singer and her music manager husband Brandon Blackstock have set up a registry at Babies R Us for their daughter, which apparently reveals the due date of their first child.
According to RadarOnline.com, Kelly has asked her close friends and family to buy unisex presents for the tiny tot, with cuddly toy animals featuring heavily on the list of 83 items.
The total value of the registry reportedly amounts to $3,000 and covers everything from baby basics like a breast pump to innovative presents like a baby sign language book and a hippo-shaped humidifier.
Kelly – who announced she was expecting a girl in January – clearly had her family members in mind when she chose goodies like bibs printed with the words ‘I Love My Grandma’ and ‘I Love My Aunt’.
The 32-year-old star also appears to be hoping her daughter will follow in her footsteps and be musically inclined, since she included a rainbow xylophone and a Baby Einstein lullaby CD.
A Cookie Monster puppet towel and a red car seat are the only presents to have been purchased so far.
Kelly – who is a stepmother to Brandon’s children Savannah, 12, and Seth, eight – was delighted when she discovered she was pregnant since the couple only had been trying to conceive since their wedding in October.
