Was Mel B’s ‘You Will Never Own Me’ VMA Dress Addressing Ex or Simon Cowell?

Mel B wore a personally designed dress with a bold message on it to the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday: a sequinned dress with the words “You Will Never Own Me” hand-stitched along the front, according to US Weekly magazine.

“The former Spice Girl arrived at the award show in a sparkly gold body con dress from Discount Universe with spaghetti straps, a V-neckline, and the words “You Will Never Own Me” written in rainbow hues down the front,” Emily Patrick, writing for the site wrote. “She ditched all accessories, letting her statement shift shine, pairing it with bright red pumps, minimal makeup, and her asymmetrical haircut swept over to one side.”

There is speculation as to who that message is addressing.

She is embroiled in a contentious divorce and custody battle with her ex-husband Stephen Belafonte.

A court ordered the America’s Got Talent judge to pay her estranged husband Stephen Belafonte $40,000 per month in temporary spousal support as well as $140,000 in attorney fees and forensic fees on Belafonte’s behalf. The two share a 5-year old daughter Madison. 

But others have speculated that the message was addressed to co-judge on AGT, Simon Cowell, who took a jab at her failed marriage during a broadcast last week.

After an embarrassing technical malfunction on a magician contestant’s performance, Cowell quipped: “I kind of imagine this would be like Mel B’s wedding night. A lot of anticipation, not much promise or delivery.”

Afterwards, Brown jumped out of her seat, poured her glass of water onto Cowell’s lap and stormed off stage during the live taping.  throwing a glass of water at him, Brown stormed out of the studio despite it being a live taping.

At a red carpet event after that taping, Mel B said of the incident, “He should know that if he says something inappropriate,he is going to get stuff thrown at him.”

She was also already emotional from watching another contestant’s touching performance and hearing a personal backstory.

“[Evie Clair] really made me cry because it made me think about my dad, and my dad recently passed away from cancer also, with an almost eight to nine years struggle. So a story like that from such a young girl really touches my heart,” Mel B told E! News  “She just sounded so beautiful and I couldn’t stop crying, so I go from that to Simon saying something so rude and inappropriate.”

Watch ET’s recap and interview:

The 2017 MTV VMA Red Carpet, Celeb Mama Edition

It has been a minute since I did a red carpet review! Thank goodness for tonight’s MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) at The Forum in Inglewood, California for breaking the drought.

Eudoxie Agnan and hubby Ludacris (real name Chris Bridges) are crusing through their honeymoon stage of their marriage and she is looking hawt on his arms on red carpets always. I did notice that she always wears black and never deviates but each time, she wears dresses with nice cuts that hug her curvaceous figure. I love the simplicity of the t-neck on this dress.

Heidi Klum always dresses like a pageant queen to me and tonight, she looked went with one of those trending lace see through dresses with a peekaboo cleavage, also a hot trend. I don’t like the color of that dress on her as I feel it washes her out and is too neutral and I don’t think it flatters her shape.

I do love the dress, however. It is by Dundass. She accented it with Lorraine Schwartz jewels and some hot strappy  metallic gold colored Giuseppe Zanotti heels.

Pink (real name Alecia Beth Moore Hart) is being honored with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard award tonight and to celebrate, she brought 3/4ths of her family along including husband, former motorcross professional Cary Hart and 5-year old daughter Willow. Eight month-old baby Jameson, her second child, is probably home with nana. They wore matching pen stripe man cut suits! Yup! Even little Willow! It was cute!

I’m not sure if Mel B was sending a message to her estranged soon-to-be ex husband with a colorful glittery pencil length dress that reads “You Will Never Own Me” or paying homage to Lesley Gore‘s 1967 song “You Don’t Own Me” or Grace’s hit cover, but it was eye catching and I loved it.

She wore her hair in a sandy brown blunt messy half bob and red pumps. She and Klum arrived at the show together, according to her Instagram feed. 

Amber Rose threw everyone for a loop by ditching her signature blonde buzz cut for wavy auburn brown side swept hair. She wore a figure hugging sheer see-through gown. I was not feeling the deep burgundy lip but if she was going for sexy goth then it works!

 

Teyana Taylor Breaks the VMAs, Becomes Everyone’s #BodyGoals

Last night’s MTV Video Music Awards in New York City was also about another one of our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums who didn’t even attend the event in person. R&B singer, actress and choreographer Teyana Taylor starred in Kanye West‘s new video for his song “Fade” from his “Life of Pablo” album. He debuted the video after a 4-minute rambling speech and then she essentially broke the VMAs. (well…right before Beyonce performed and broke it again)

In the video for Fade, outfitted in a “Flashdance” -esqe work out gear, super cropped underboob-revealing tank, high cut workout undies and knee pads, Taylor performed some pretty wickedly fierce dance moves inside an empty gym.

Yes, this is the same woman who gave birth one week and who looked like this 6 days later. So, it came as no surprise to us at Bellyitch that her body would be this hot months later.

teyana1

Just her, dripping with hotness. The artists that perform on the record Yeezy, Ty Dolla $ign and Post Malone are nowhere to be seen. Um, not that anyone needed them.

The rhythmic gyrations and phenomenal choreography ended with some steamy NSFW scenes with her husband Cleveland Cavalier‘s Iman Shumpter in the shower. For those who don’t know, Taylor, is also well known among mainstream audiences for her 2007 my My Super Sweet Sixteen party which aired on MTV. And her fiance is the same dude who helped Taylor deliver their daughter in the bathtub.

The final scene ends with a close up of Taylor, only with her face looking like a puma, and she has a tail. She’s on Shumpter’s back and their daughter Iman Jr is close nearby with some sheep surrounding them all. Odd. I know. Watch the video here on Digg (if it hasn’t been taken down).

 And enjoy these Gifs that are going around the net because, in addition to new found heightened fame to a new crop of people who were unaware of her existence and fame before, Taylor is now the official MILF and #BodyGoals for a bunch of people who will probably never look as good as she does. lol.

For the #VMA’s, Dove Reminds Women to #SpeakBeautiful About Other Women

speak beautiful

Tomorrow is the MTV Video Music Awards (VMA) and in an effort to combat all the negativity shared by and between young girls and women in social media, Dove wants to shift the dialogue from all the recent controversial headlines related to Miley vs. Nicki, Nicki vs. Taylor, Taylor vs. Katy, or any combination of the three.

They recognize that loads of real girls and even celebs like P!nk and Selena Gomez have recently been the victims of social media attacks based on their looks alone.

During the VMAs this weekend, Dove is encouraging women and girls to #SpeakBeautiful when posting comments about other women on Twitter.  The #SpeakBeautiful campaign launched earlier this year on Oscar night and we’re taking it to the next big event, the VMAs, to help change the social media conversation that affects our self-esteem.

In fact, we know 8 out of 10 women encounter negativity on social media that is hurtful/destructive to their self-esteem and it’s time for a change.

Since it launched the campaign, Dove states it has seen  69% more positive Tweets pertaining to how women talk about their own appearance, versus the previous year.

Tomorrow, @Dove on Twitter plans to monitor the language said about women by other women.

Join in and Be Kind.
