Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School

2018 Billboard Awards (Quick Rundown)

Mom-to-be Cardi B was nominated for seven Billboard awards tonight at the MGM Grand hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada and came away with a win for Top Rap Female artist award besting Nicki Minaj who was also nominated in that category.

Our other Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Janet Jackson showed up on the red carpet looking youthful as ever. She was on hand to receive the Icon Award, the first Black Woman to be bestowed the honor. She also performed a medley of her hits including “Nasty”, “Throb” and “If.”

Kelly Clarkson hosted the event and also looked fabulous in a medley of her own of fab  outfits. She started the night addressing the latest school shooting in Texas with a heart felt plea to do something more than have “moments of silences” and “thoughts and prayers” each time there is a school shooting in America. “It’s time we had a moment of action, she pleaded before kicking off the night. Later Khalid and Shawn Mendes did a moving tribute backed by the choir from the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, the site of another school shooting earlier this year.

 Christina Alguilera performed a duet with Demi Lovato. Jennifer Lopez performed her song  “Dinero” but without Cardi who did not attend the show and perhaps was dealing with the stresses of her fiance Offset getting into a terrible car accident. 

Other celeb moms we’ve featured prominently on the blog in attendance included Jenna Dewan Tatum in Zuhair Murad, Padma Lakshmi, Tyra Banks, Mila Kunis in David Koma  and  Ciara in a body fitting sheer dress..

Fun times!

Jennifer Hudson, Kanye West and North Among Celebs Attending March For Our Lives

A few of our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums attending this weekend’s March For Our Lives rally in Washington, DC.  Kim Kardashian West‘s husband Kanye West attended the event with his daughter North and her grandparents.

They were spotted with North on her papa’s shoulders in the middle of a packed crowd.

Jennifer Hudson delivered a soulful gospel-inspired rendition of Bob Dylan’s “The Times They Are a-Changin‘” to close out the March. WATCH

The movement calls for stricter gun control laws following the massacre of 17 students at a shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.  Other celebrity supporters of the event include Selena Gomez, Amy Schumer, George Clooney and Paul McCartney.

Hudson gets props for always jumping in to support youth movements.  She is among a host of other celebs (like Beyonce, Alicia Keys, Rihanna, Lenny Kravitz, Zoë Kravitz, Queen Latifah, Pink, Bono,  and Rosario Dawsonto also support the Black Lives Matter movement aimed at addressing disproportionate number of killing of UNARMED black civilians by police with impunity. Kanye West has a history of controversial statements but has also been a supporter of the BLM movement. 

This song Hudson sand was approps. Check the Lyrics:

The Times They Are A-Changin’

WRITTEN BY: BOB DYLAN

Come gather ’round people

Wherever you roam

And admit that the waters

Around you have grown

And accept it that soon

You’ll be drenched to the bone

If your time to you is worth savin’

Then you better start swimmin’ or you’ll sink like a stone

For the times they are a-changin’

Come writers and critics

Who prophesize with your pen

And keep your eyes wide

The chance won’t come again

And don’t speak too soon

For the wheel’s still in spin

And there’s no tellin’ who that it’s namin’

For the loser now will be later to win

For the times they are a-changin’

Come senators, congressmen

Please heed the call

Don’t stand in the doorway

Don’t block up the hall

For he that gets hurt

Will be he who has stalled

There’s a battle outside and it is ragin’

It’ll soon shake your windows and rattle your walls

For the times they are a-changin’

Come mothers and fathers

Throughout the land

And don’t criticize

What you can’t understand

Your sons and your daughters

Are beyond your command

Your old road is rapidly agin’

Please get out of the new one if you can’t lend your hand

For the times they are a-changin’

The line it is drawn

The curse it is cast

The slow one now

Will later be fast

As the present now

Will later be past

The order is rapidly fadin’

And the first one now will later be last

For the times they are a-changin’
