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’

Get Khloe Kardashian’s $3000 Satin Maternity Look for $50

Not just Chrissy Teigen, but Khloe Kardashian is another hard working expecting mom. The first-time mom-to-be has wrapped a busy promotional calendar for her E! TV show Revenge Body with Khloe Kardashian which just returned to the air last month.

She gave several interviews during that time and we spotted some pretty cute ones we’d like to cop, like the navy satin Cushnie et Ochs Black Pyramid Pencil Dress cut out dress she wore on an appearance of Jimmy Kimmel Live about a month ago.

The label is a fave of stars like Selena Gomez, Camila Cabello, Teigen and Michelle Obama and is known for its intricate cut outs and asymmetrical lines.

The Good American Apparel co-founder draped a similar color  trench jacket by Galvan which retails for $1,175.  The dress goes for $1,695.

If you want a much less costlier version and don’t mind getting it shipped from Amazon, you can pick up a similar dress by Hello MIZ. Their Women’s Cold Shoulder Knee Length Fitted Maternity dress starts at $19.99 and has gotten great reviews from customers who bought the dress!

And Amie Finery has a similar Cut Out Cold Shoulder Dress that isn’t just for pregnant women but comes in a loose fitting A-line so it could accommodate them too. That dress too starts at about $20 bucks! Add an Open Front Cape Trench Duster coat by HaoDuoYi which retails $26.94 and you’ve recreated Khloe’s  nearly $3,000 look for about $50! 

Score!

But if you insist on copping the original, the line has pieces that start about $250! Totally doable!

Insider: Beyonce Struggled for a Long Time to Conceive Again

rs_1024x714-170202044728-1024-beyonce-15-2217

Editor’s Note: I know. I know. Enough Beyonce coverage. Soon. I cannot help myself as I am a big fan. Now this….

It feels like the world stopped spinning on its axis for a moment after we found out Beyoncé is not only pregnant, but that she and Jay Z are expecting twins!

She’s already released a slew of gorgeous photos in honor of the exciting news, and now E! News has learned the whole process has been quite a “miracle.”

An insider tells us exclusively, “[Bey and Jay] have been trying for sometime, and it has not been very easy conceiving this time around, so when they did it was a miracle. They always wanted more kids, and they are doing really well as a couple so the timing is on point.”

As for Queen B’s health, our source explains, “Beyoncé is feeling OK. She had some morning sickness early on and her energy level is slower then usual, [but she] is taking good care of her body and has good doctors that are making sure she is on track.”

The rest of the family, including 5-year-old Blue Ivy, is ecstatic.

“Blue is excited to be a big sister,” our insider reveals. “And Jay Z has expressed his excitement to some of his very close friends.”

For now, the insider adds, “Jay Z has new music, and Beyoncé will take some time for herself now and after she has the babies.”

Meanwhile, Bey announced the news on her Instagram Wednesday, releasing a joint statement with her family beside a Virgin Mary-esq photo.

“We would like to share our love and happiness. We have been blessed two times over. We are incredibly grateful that our family will be growing by two, and we thank you for your well wishes,” she wrote.

The announcement broke Selena Gomez‘s record by becoming the most-liked Instagram ever.

Then, on Thursday, the excitement only continued when she released even more photos as a part of the announcement in which she’s seen posing node, sitting atop an old car and and swimming in a pool.

2015 VMA Awards Red Carpet & Show Roundup

vma 2015 fashion bellyitchblog.com

 

Tonight was another celeb-studded musical event at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards at Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California.

Several of our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums graced the red carpet before the event, took the stage and were nominated for quite a few awards.

Mega star Beyonce Knowles Carter was a no show even though she was nominated for 5 awards for her “7/11” Video (Best Female, Pop, Editing, Choreography, Video of the Year). She won only one for Best Editing.

Jennifer Hudson couldn’t make it either despite being up for the Best Video with a social message award for her song, “I Still Love You.”

On the red carpet, model Lily Aldridge stunned in a black Alexandre Vauthier couture gown with a plunging neckline, Stuart Weitzman shoes, Jen Meyer Jewelry earrings, Anita Ko bracelets, and an Edie Parker clutch.

Britney Spears showed mucho cleavage in a showgirls-esque gold sequined number with cutouts in the tummy.

Kim Kardashian West covered her bump in a long sleeve draped military style dress.

Her sis Kourtney Kardashian was giving up the sexy in a hot pink jumpsuit, fresh off of winning our 2015 Posh Mom Icon award.

Their family’s arch nemeses Amber Rose and Blac Chyna came dressed in matching nude outfits with cartoon caricture lettering featuring all the insulting names that people have called the duo who are headed for an MTV reality TV show this fall.

The show wasn’t without its dramatic moments, of course, including some toxic exchanges between show host Miley Cyrus and Nicki Minaj who won the Best Rap Video Award for video for “Anaconda“. It was the same video Minaj suggested was deserving for being up for the Video of the Year Award but was slighted because she felt the women featured in the video weren’t thin.  Taylor Swift assumed it was a slam against her given all the women in her Bad Blood video were pretty much rail thin and the two had a brief Twitter beef which reeled their fans in on it and was more or less squashed until Cyrus added her two cents during a promo appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Cyrus said Minaj was “not nice”.  The rest is history and can be seen on Twitter but since we’re about promoting positivity by and among women, we’ll leave it at that.

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.
