Last night was the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards at Radio City Music Hall in New York, New York City on August 20.

Quite a few of our Bellyitch  Bumpwatch alums showed up and/or showed out with draw-dropping performances, on-stage antics, on the red carpet risks and MoonMan winning!

Jennifer Lopez gave an electrifying performance of a medley of her hits over the years before accepting the Video Vanguard Award, the first person of Latino heritage to win the coveted prize.

Cardi B surprised the audience by opening the show cradling what looked like a baby on stage

Many thought they would get the first glimpse of her infant girl Kultura with husband rapper Offset, but she later revealed it was a trophy.

Womp womp womp!!

Later in the evening, the “I Like It” rapper won three of several awards she was nominated for, Song of the Summer for “I Like It featuring Bad Bunny & J Balvin; Best new artist and Best Collaboration for “Dinero” Jennifer Lopez’s song with DJ Khaled Artist of the year.

She was nominated for Best hip hop, Artist of the Year, Best Latin album, also for Dinero and Song of the Year for “Finesse” with Bruno Mars

Beyoncé’s song “APES**T” with her husband Jay Z as part of their duo The Carters won a few technical awards for Best Cinematography and Best Art Direction though that song was also nominated for Best collaboration, Best Direction, Best Choreography,  Best Hop Hop, Best Editing And Video of the Year.

On the red carpet, JLo and Cardi showed out along with other alums Kylie Jenner and Blake Lively, coming through with the pant suit again.

MTV Reality show and other Bellyitch alums Heidi Montag, Nicky Hilton, Nicole “Snooki” Palozzi and Audrina Partridge graces the red carpet also.

One fashion trend that stood out to me was the inptricate sheet organza I saw on singing sisters and Beyonce protege Chloe X Haile, comedic actress Tiffany Hadish and British singing phenom  Rita Ora.

 

And finally, winning the sex kitten awards: a chaps and chisel abs donning Teyana Taylor, Blac Chyna and red cat woman Amber Rose. 

Teen Vogue: Kylie Jenner Escapes the Young Mom Stigma Moms of Color Receive

It was just a little while ago that Kylie was a little bright eye little girl. Like less than a half decade ago. She was dating little Jaden Smith for goodness sake.

There is anteresting piece in Teen Vogue how young mothers who are not Kylie Jenner are stigmatized and blame for the downfall of their entire community, yet rich privileged moms get a pass. Well, I think there can be an emphasis of “rich” because I think the teen moms of MTV’s Teen Mom are judged pretty harshly as well but I get what the author is getting at. Because while MTV tried to avoid stigmatizing the usual suspects by mainly casting white teen moms, they ended up making those moms famous— so in essence, they were rewarded for being a teen mom. The Catch 22 of it all!

Anyway, Lara Writ writes:

Kylie’s privilege of privacy also helped her shy away from a lot of the stigma and shame projected onto poor women and black and brown mothers. Her whiteness and wealth means she won’t receive the same level of criticisms or judgements — not that she should, no one should ever be shamed for their pregnancy. However, it is important to note that because of our capitalist and racist society, as well as the U.S.’s history of chattel slavery, black mothers are subjected to pregnancy shaming and scrutiny, especially if they are unwed. Because of anti-black racism and misogyny (misogynoir), black mothers are blamed for the deterioration of patriarchal and traditional family structures, the social-ills which impact black communities and the sexist double standards of promiscuity. Black feminists have long described how the racist roots of American history gave birth to these stereotypes of black mothers, and how politicians like President Ronald Reagan used racist tropes to cut funding to social welfare programs.

When we discuss Kylie’s pregnancy and the birth of her baby, it’s also important to stray from shaming her for being a young mother while also taking into account her privilege. There are many things we should be changing in this country, from access to proper reproductive healthcare to better sex-ed to the dismantling of racism within all spectrum of society. Kylie deserved to have her baby without any stress-related complications, but so do all parents.

Audrina Patridge Gets Restraining Order Against Hubby 1 Year After Baby

We featured The Hills alum Audrina Patridge when she was expecting her first child, daughter Kirra, with her husband Corey Bohan. In a chilling series of court document accounts in a post on PEOPLE, Patridge details the alleged abuse she suffered at the hands of Bohan:

Around 9:30 a.m., [Corey] was being very aggressive with me, arguing, following me into every single room of the house, repeating himself, getting really close to me as his temper escalated, all because I refused to tell him which person told me that he cheated on me with another woman. I became frightened and said I would talk to him but he needed to let me take our daughter to my grandma’s house or my parents’ house so she wasn’t in the cross-fire.

He wasn’t listening and kept following me, cussing, yelling at me. I had Kirra in my arms, trying to leave. [Corey] locked the door and pushed me back with her in my arms. I begged him to please let me go and take Kirra somewhere else, I didn’t want her around all this.

He then picked up my backpack and purse and threw everything on the floor. He started punching and hitting himself on the head. Then he punched a hole in our bedroom door. I was very frightened and started screaming and covered Kirra’s eyes and ears, but she started crying and screaming.

[Corey] then let me pass, and ran downstairs in front of me and grabbed a big metal canister, saying if I left right now he was going to bash his head in with the canister tight in front of us—or better yet he would do it in the street so everyone could hear that it was all my fault.

It gets more disturbing and you can read the rest here, but the TV host and swimwear designer has since filed for restraining order against him for the sake of herself and their daughter.

Now, partly because Patridge fears Bohan will use Kirra’s passport and try and take her to his native Australia, Patridge has filed — and been granted — a restraining order that requires Bohan to stay 100 ft. away from her and Kirra and their Yorkie, Lady, other than Bohan’s supervised visitations with Kirra three days a week, PEOPLE reports.

We’re pulling for her and baby and for a peaceful resolve.

P!nk and Logic Gave the Most Impactful Speeches at the MTV VMAs WATCH!

As usual during Awards shows, artists use their time and platform to espouse messages to their audience. Last night’s MTV VMAs is no stranger to being used as a conduit to deliver news.

Last night, P!nk and hip hop artist Logic, in our opinion delivered the two of the most impactful remarks.

P!nk while accepting the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award spoke of her 5-year old daughter who needed a self-esteem boost recently.

“If I may tell you a quick story,” Pink began her acceptance speech relaying a recent exchange with her daughter.

“‘Momma, I’m the ugliest girl I know,'” Pink said her daughter told her one day. “I said, huh? She was like, ‘I look like a boy with long hair.’ My brain went to, oh my God you’re six, where is this coming from?” Pink said.

“I didn’t say anything. Instead I went home and made a PowerPoint presentation for her. In that presentation were androgynous rockstars and artists that live their truth and are probably made fun of everyday of their life and carry on and wave their flag and inspire the rest of us,” she said before naming famous androgynous musicians like Annie Lennox, Prince, George Michael, Elton John, and Michael Jackson. 

She then ended her tale with a powerful statement. “We don’t change—we take the gravel in the shell and make a pearl,” she said. “We help other people to change to see more kinds of beauty. Thank you for being your true selves and lighting the way for us,” she wrapped up before giving props to other celebs in the audience.

“You my darling girl are beautiful and I love you,” she said to her daughter, who was in the crowd.

This speech also explains why she and her family were dressed in oversized pin stripe suits, a hat tip to androgyny.  Kudos to her for being so present and responsive.

 

Also, new artist Logic sang his hit song “1-800-273-8255“, which is the national Suicide Prevention Hotline number, and was joined on stage towards the end by a few dozen people of all races, persuasion, and background who have attempted suicide in the past.

The front of their shirts had the number and the back read, “you are not alone.” It was powerful because you could see yourself represented among those people and that sends a powerful message that suicide impacts everyone.

We also found Logic’s plea for acceptance and tolerance much needed, especially in today’s heated political climate.

“I just want to take a moment right now and thank you all so much for giving me a platform to talk about something that mainstream media doesn’t want to talk about,” he said. “Mental health, anxiety, suicide, depression and so much more that I talk about on this album. From racism, discrimination, sexism, domestic violence, sexual assault and so much more.”

The hip hop artist called his fans to take action on achieving equality.

“I don’t give a (expletive) if you’re black, white or any color in between. I don’t care if you’re Christian, you’re Muslim, you’re gay, you’re straight — I’m gonna fight for your equality because I believe that we are all born equal, but we are not treated equal and that is why we must fight. We must fight for the equality of every man, woman and child regardless of race, religion, color, creed and sexual orientation.”

Whitney Port Cries About the Pain of Breastfeeding In New Video

The Hills alum Whitney Port is still keeping it 100 about her first time mom experience even after giving birth.

After welcoming her first child Sonny, Port is still vlogging her series, “I Love My Baby But…”. In her latest edition, the former star of the MTV reality Tv show The City talks about how painful it has been to breastfeee her child.

In a video posted on her YouTube page on Thursday, Port breaks down in tears over the pain which is very common even for new moms.

“I think I’m just tired,” she said. “And I obviously want to breastfeed. I don’t know [why]. I honestly think it’s, I guess because that’s what people say, like, is the best bonding experience.”

It has been a problem since the beginning apparently. Port said breastfeeding was difficult from the beginning.

“I thought I was doing really well and the nurses there said that the latch was good and I was like, really surprised but after about 24 to 48 hours of doing it, I just started to get so incredibly painful and we came home and I just like hit a breaking point and said, ‘I can’t do this. It feels like someone’s like, slicing my nipples with glass,'” Port said.

Teyana Taylor’s ‘Fade’ Choreography Is Nominated for an MTV VMA, Revisit the Gifs and Videos


teyana-kanye

Last year at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards, Kanye West debuted the music video for his then- new song, “Fade“, starring our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum, Teyana Taylor.

Today, the 2017 MTV VMA nominations came out and to no surprise Taylor and her choreography team were nominated for Best Video Choreography!

I am rooting for her flash dance inspired video and moves, and her banging post-baby body to match.

In case you missed it, here are some gifs and the video to jog your memory.

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 a week later and then 6 months later this:

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.

teyana 5

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).

 With that video, Taylor became the official MILF and #BodyGoals for a bunch of people who will probably never look as good as she does. lol.

Lauren Conrad Welcomes Son, Liam James Tell

conrad

Congrats to former reality star turned lifestyle maven Lauren Conrad on the birth of her first child this past Wednesday.

The lifestyle blogger and designer shared the news on her website that son is Liam James Tell was born Wednesday, weighing in at 6 pounds, 14 ounces.

It’s the first child for Conrad and husband William Tell. The 31-year-old Conrad married the lawyer and musician in 2014.

Conrad got her start on Laguna Beach before getting her own reality show, The Hills which ran from 2006 to 2010.

She told her readers that she planned to step back from an active role on her blog while she adjust to motherhood.

“I’ll be taking a little bit of a step back from the site over the next few weeks as we adjust to life as a family of three (five, if you count Chloe and Fitz of course…),” the Laguna Beach alum wrote. “But not to worry… my editorial team will be working hard to bring you tons of great content in the meantime, and I’ll still be blogging here and there when I can, bringing you updates from my life as a new mom.”

Being the savvy and well-prepared content creator, she prepped for maternity leave.

“Plus, I’ve drafted up a few blog posts ahead of time, so you can still expect to see at least one or two posts a week coming from yours truly,” she added.

Nice! Congrats!
