Teyana Taylor Reveals Her Diet And Workout Secret

Teyana Taylor Reveals Her Diet And Workout Secret

After the world got an eyeful of Teyana Taylor’s bangin’ post-baby body, she became body goals for a whole host of people (Some who apparently hadn’t even heard of her). Now everyone wants to know what her regimen is to get started now their Summer 17 body…TeyanaMaxim
Well as it turns out, you won’t get curves and cuts like Teyana’s by eating air and spending hours on the elliptical…because that’s NOT how she sculpted them herself. As Teyana revealed toE!online:
Naturally, a number of people have now named her their fitspo, which is wonderful—except getting Taylor’s figure may be even harder than you thought, because it’s not exactly the traditional fitness program or strict diet that you may have assumed.
Taylor tells E! News, “Dancing is my workout. I just dance. I almost feel like dance is so underrated in the fitness world.” (Noted. Compiling a fire playlist to dance to in the living room now.)
A source reaffirms the fact, telling E! News, “Teyana Taylor has always just had a crazy dope body and the way she ‘works out’ is dancing in the studio. That’s her workout.”
Additionally, if you’re putting down that burger and reaching for a salad because you think that’s what Teyana Taylor would do, you’re wrong, because she tells us she absolutely doesn’t diet and “eats everything,” so don’t worry about cheating yourself out of that juicy meal.
The insider also adds, “Eating healthy is not her thing. She is the kind of girl that eats donuts and candy for breakfast. She just doesn’t gain weight.”

On top of all that…she didn’t even take a moment to tone before shooting this oiled-up, caked out dance scene:
Furthermore, Taylor didn’t jump-start her post-baby body journey for this project, because she didn’t know it was happening until three weeks prior to shooting. “I was shaking, excited, nervous and all that other good stuff,” she tells us.
“When I saw it, I was just as in shock as everyone else, because I didn’t see the final product until he premiered it.”

Young Thug doesnt like sex! But has 6 children. What his gf has to do **Video**


Having six children doesn't necessarily mean you love sex, not according to Young Thug, who at the age of 25 has made mothers of four different women. In a recent interview profiling Thug's relationship with fiancee, Jerrika Karlae, the soon to be newlyweds opened up about the progression of their romance from the club to the bedroom. For awhile there, Jerrika says she thought something might have been wrong with Thugger, with it taking them six months to have intercourse. According to the "No, My Name Is Jeffery" rapper; his abstinence had nothing to do with any moral conviction.

“We wasn’t doing it on like no it’s too early to have sex shit,” he told VFILES. “I don’t care for sex that much. I’ve never actually had sex with her. Never ever. Our first time doin’ grown stuff, she did it. She pulled me to the room and was like ‘come here’.”

Such news might come off as a shocker for fans who've come to associate the Atlanta rapper with his sexuality, considering his arc from debuting with a Barter 6 album cover in which he posed butt naked, to the recent headline-grabbing antebellum dress he donned on the cover of his most recent drop. For Jerrika, as time went on his discipline made him all the more appealing to her. She went on to confirm that it was she who would eventually initiate their sexual romance, describing a time in which she pulled him into a room after a few drinks.

Other NFL players have had mixed to negative feelings about Kaepernick’s bold move. “It’s hard for me, because my brother was a Marine, and he lost a lot of friends over there,” said Minnesota Viking Alex Boone to USA TODAY Sports. “That flag obviously gives (Kaepernick) the right to do whatever he wants. I understand it. At the time same time, you should have some (expletive) respect for people who served, especially people that lost their life to protect our freedom.”

Two Brothers Charged in Death of Dwyane Wade's Cousin(Speaks on Twitter)

Two brothers have been charged with first-degree murder in the shooting death of Nykea Aldridge, the cousin of NBA star Dwyane Wade.

A 32-year old mother of four, Aldridge was pushing her baby in a stroller near the school where she was walking to register her children when two men walked up and fired shots at a third man but hit Aldridge in the head and arm.  She wasn't the intended target, Cmdr. Brendan Deenihan said at a news conference Sunday, but rather a driver who had just dropped off passengers in the neighborhood.

Darwin Sorrells Jr., 26, and Derren Sorrells, 22, were charged with attempted murder in addition to first-degree murder in Friday's shooting. There is a video of the incident, Dennihan said, but no weapon was recovered, and police don't know where the weapon is.

Superintendent Eddie Johnson said the suspects are an example of the city's problem with repeat offenders.  Darwin Sorrells was sentenced to six years in prison in January 2013 on a gun charge and was released early on parole, while Derren Sorrells is a known gang member who also was on parole, police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said.

Two Brothers Charged in Death of Dwyane Wade's Cousin"They don't care who they shoot, and they don't fear the consequences," he said, noting as he has in the past that about 1,400 people are driving 85 percent of the city's gun violence. He added that the city has gotten very good at predicting who will be the perpetrators and the victims of gun violence.

Chicago has seen a major rise in gun violence, mainly centered in a few South and West Side neighborhoods where rival gangs live in proximity to each other.

Wade, a Chicago native, has a charitable organization, Wade's World Foundation which does community outreach in the Chicago area.  He signed with the Chicago Bulls in July after 13 years with the Miami Heat.  Wade and his mother, Pastor Jolinda Wade, participated Thursday via satellite in a town hall meeting in Chicago on gun violence hosted by ESPN.

Wade reacted to the shooting death of his cousin online, tweeting Friday about senseless gun violence.  He noted that four kids lost their mom for no reason and that more needs to be done.

Pastor who Damned Pulse Nightclub Victims Busted for Child Molestation

Pastor who Damned Pulse Nightclub Victims Busted for Child Molestation
A Georgia pastor, known for the incendiary remarks he's made will soon come before a judge to defend himself against allegations that he is a sexual predator.  At the request of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, 56-year-old Ken Adkins, of St. Simons Island, handed himself over to authorities at around nine a.m. on Friday, [August 26]. He currently remains in detention at the Glynn County Jail as he faces charges of child molestation and aggravated child molestation.

Article Image: Pastor who Damned Pulse Nightclub Victims Busted for Child MolestationAdkins came to the nation's attention following remarks he made on the massacre at Pulse nightclub in Orlando earlier this year.  With the ill-timing of a tweet that would quickly capture headlines, the pastor created a stir when he wrote, "Been through so much with these Jacksonville homosexuals that I don’t see none of them as victims. I see them as getting what they deserve!!"  The comment drew a storm of criticism from numerous figures in television and print media.

Frank Ocean Leaves Def Jam

Article Image: Frank Ocean Leaves Def Jam, "Blond" Released IndependentlyFrank Ocean's follow-up to his 2012 debut Channel Orange is projected to enter the Billboard 200 as the #1 album of the week, with 250,000 equivalent albums sold. That's an accolade for the books, with Blond set to be the first chart-topping debut of Ocean's career, and it's some decent bank for the 28-year-old singer/songwriter, considering that's a quarter of a million independent units sold. In other words, Blond, as fans may have assumed, was in fact not released through Def Jam Records.
It has been difficult to keep up with Frank, coming off of a four-year hiatus and a bluffed album release date earlier in the month, fans were suddenly served an 18-track visual album titled "Endless" just before mid-night Friday [August 19], and within 36 hours there were "Boys Don't Cry" pop-up shops selling a "Boys Don't Cry" magazine and merchandise in New York, Chicago, L.A., and London. Those awaiting an official "Boys Don't Cry" drop were indeed complimented with Frank's sophomore effort, but it came under the title Blond.
According to sources, when Ocean put Endless out, he had met his contractual obligation with Def Jam/Universal Music Group. It has now been reported that Blondconstitutes Ocean's first release under his own "Boys Don't Cry" imprint.

Counterfeit Fentanyl Found at Prince's Estate, Same Drug that Killed Singer



Article Image: Counterfeit Fentanyl Found at Prince's Estate, Same Drug that Killed Singer
Soon after Prince was found dead in his Minnesota home in April of this year, rumors swarmed that he too had succumbed to a drug overdose like fellow music icon Michael Jackson. In June, reports confirmed that the extremely potent opioid fentanyl was the substance that caused the pop legend's death. Fentanyl is 100 times more potent than morphine and 50 times more powerful than heroin, but on August 21, an anonymous official source involved with the investigation told the Associated Press that it might not have been prescription fentanyl that killed the musician. It was revealed that counterfeit pills containing bootleg fentanyl had been found on his estate.
The AP source said that nearly two dozen pills found in one Aleve bottle were falsely labeled as "Watson 385." According to Drugs.com, that stamp is used to identify pills containing a mix of acetaminophen and hydrocodone, but the official said these particular pills that were found actually contained fentanyl, lidocaine, and U-47700 — a synthetic drug that is eight times more powerful than morphine. Among the other dozens of pills seized from Paisley Park, they were found to have other drugs in them, including oxycodone, codeine, and some were not controlled substances, but were aspirin, and Vitamin C.
Though fentanyl is known as a prescription drug that is most commonly available as a patch placed on the skin, in recent years, a bootleg version of the drug believed to derive from China has flooded the black market in both the US and Canada. Fentanyl is increasingly playing a role in the thousands of overdose deaths in the United States.  More than 700 people died due to overdoses from the potent opioid between 2013 and 2015. This number is likely higher than reported because fentanyl isn't always tested for.

Birdman Ordered to Pay $3.3 Million for Uncleared Samples

Birdman and Cash Money Records have been ordered to pay $3.3 million in royalties for samples they used.
Birdman Ordered to Pay $3.3 Million for Uncleared SamplesThe label used samples for Lil Wayne songs including “You” and “Certified” that were never cleared through the proper channels. The owner’s to the rights of the songs sampled sued Cash Money and will now collect what’s owed to them, according to TMZ.
Cash Money has been criticized extensively in the past for not paying their artists, so it’s no surprise that sample clearing is not being done in an orthodox way over there. Artists like Trick Daddy said the label doesn’t even have an office and is running a non-traditional manner that might not benefit them business wise. Artists including Lil Wayne, Juvenile, and Tyga have all attacked or sued Cash Money for unpaid royalties.Weezy filed a $51 million dollar suit against his label home at the end of last year that still hasn't been settled.

Lucky Lady: DMX Welcomes 15th Child, Girlfriend's First



DMX welcomed his 15th child into the world last Friday (Aug. 16) with his girlfriend Desiree Lindstrom. The baby boy's name is Exodus Simmons and he weighed six pounds, 10 ounces.
The veteran rapper's substantial family tree has caused him some issues in the past. In June 2015, DMX was arrested for unpaid child support. Just a few months after being released from that arrest, X was picked up yet again on charges of unpaid child support. His ex-wife and mother of four of his children, Tashera Simmons, accused DMX of missing his $10,000 a month child support payments following his prison release. At one point, reports said he owed about $400,000 in unpaid funds.
DMX ended up blaming it all on his former manager, who was fired late last year. X claimed the payments should have been handled by the business manager, and he assumed Tashera was getting the payments as usual until he got arrested.
2016 got off to a rough start as well, but it was because of his health.  DMX was found unconscious and rushed to a hospital in February. Luckily things have gotten better for Dark Man X as he started to do notable interviews, appeared at one of the Bad Boy reunion shows, and teamed up with his old Ruff Ryders associate, Styles P for a new song called "Still Scratching." With the birth of his baby boy, this appears to cap off a much better year for the Yonkers rapper.

State Trooper Kills Unarmed Deaf Man Trying to Communicate in Sign Language

A North Carolina state trooper shot and killed 29-year-old Daniel Harris, who was trying to communicate to him in sign language, as he is deaf and mute. Police claim that Harris led them on a brief pursuit after they tried to pull him over for speeding, although it's not clear if Harris was aware that he was being pulled over, due to his disability.
After stopping, Harris, who was unarmed, tried to communicate with the trooper using sign language. Witnesses say Harris was shot and killed "almost immediately" after getting out of his vehicle.
A statement from the North Carolina Highway Patrol read, "An encounter took place between the driver and the trooper causing a shot to be fired," adding that State Trooper Jermaine Saunders has been placed on administrative leave. However, Harris' neighbor criticized the way the trooper handled the situation.
Mark Barringer, who witnessed part of the incident, told reporters, "They should've deescalated and been trained to realize that this is an entirely different situation. You're pulling someone over who is deaf. They are handicapped."
Harris' family has set up a GoFundMe account where they addressed the aftermath of the situation, "Our family is raising funds to cover his memorial and cremation expenses (details pending). Any monies left over will be used to set up a foundation in his name to educate and provide law enforcement proper training on how to confront Deaf people. Subsequently, we hope to change the DMV registration system by requiring states to set up a 'DEAF' alert to appear when law enforcement look up a car's license plate. With this change, Daniel will be a hero in our Deaf community."

GMA Host Apologizes for Saying Colored People on Morning Show



On Monday morning, “Good Morning America” co-anchor, Amy Robach found herself in hot water following her saying the term, “colored people” during ABC’s live broadcast of the programming. Directly following the anchor’s major flub on air, social media erupted with criticisms of the host which in turn prompted an immediate apology from Robach for her misuse of the insensitive term.
During a segment of GMA on Monday morning that focused on diversity in Hollywood, all hell broke loose following Robach attempting to make note of the recent criticisms filmmakers had encountered for casting white actors by saying,”in what one might assume should be a role reserved for colored people.”
Although a small mishap, as she meant to use the phrase "people of color," the archaic phrase sent shockwaves through Twitter and prompted dozens of angry tweets blasting Robach and the ABC Network for the “offensive remarks.” To which then prompted the anchor to make a statement calling the incident, "a mistake" and "not at all a reflection of how I feel or speak in my everyday life."
As of now, no other disciplinary action has been taken by ABC in response to Robach's inflammatory  comment.

Hot 97's Rosenberg Urges Drake to Stop Trying to be Tough: You're an Actor, bro

 It looks like just about everyone has a problem with Drake right about now following an amped up performance on Sunday night where he dissed his rival, Meek Mill during his Philadelphia stop of the Summer Sixteen Tour. Radio personality and former Drake proponent, Peter Rosenberg was decidedly not feeling the “six god” after he took to Twitter and blasted Drake for “trying to be hard and stir things up,” when according to Rosenberg, Drake is as equally soft as him.
On Monday afternoon, Hot 97’s Rosenberg took to Twitter to get some things off his chest and let off a series of shots aimed at Drake as a result of him performing “Back to Back,” in Mill’s hometown on Sunday night. In a series of tweets, Rosenberg goes off suggesting that Drake is “gassed” on himself following him disrespecting Hot 97 and Funkmaster Flex, and is now looking to reignite beef for no particular reason. Rosenberg shares, “disappointed in @Drake ...someone has you really gassed bro ... dissing hot in NYC, Meek in Philly...youre an actor bro..youre as soft as me. there was NO need for@Drake to reignite things with Meek .. he's always been realer than you..your content is MEANINGLESS. ... @Drake wouldn't have been the toughest kid in my hebrew school ... stop ... make hits for the club...dont try to be hard please...EVER.

Armed White Lives Matter Protestors Rally at Houston NAACP Office

Image: Armed White Lives Matter Protestors Rally at Houston NAACP Office Image #2The Black Lives Matter movement has made such an impact in a short amount of time that several other groups have begun to form. An example of this comes in the form of "White Lives Matter" protesters who staged a rally at the Houston, Texas NAACP office this past Sunday. At the protest, One participant was seen holding the sign 14 Words, which is a white supremacist saying that means, “We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children.” The phrase derives from white supremacist David Lane, who was a long-time member of a pro-white terrorist group called The Order. Along with holding up the 14 Words sign, WLM protesters could be seen holding up the Confederate flag which made many residents of Houston's 3rd Ward uncomfortable.
Despite the racially charged protest that took place in front of the NAACP, police managed to prevent any violence from taking place.

Alleged Pedophile, NSYNC & Backstreet Boys Founder Lou Pearlman Dies In Jail

Lou Pearlman the boy band mogul who launched the hit groups Backstreet Boys and 'NSync;  was later sent to prison for a $300 million Ponzi and bank fraud scheme.  The Federal Bureau of Prisons wrote on its website that Pearlman died on Friday at 62-years-old. A cause of death was not listed in federal records, but according to transcripts, at the time of sentencing when Pearlman was 53 years old, his attorney argued that he had "some significant health conditions."
Pearlman pleaded guilty under a plea agreement to federal charges of conspiracy to commit an offense against the United States, money laundering and presenting or using a false claim in a bankruptcy proceeding.
In 2008, he was sentenced to 25 years in prison, after swindling investors and banks in a scheme that went on for two decades.  At least $200 million of the more than $300 million wrapped up in the scam was from investors, according to court records.
Pearlman convinced the individual investors and banks to invest millions of dollars in two phony companies purported to be in the airline business - Transcontinental Airlines Travel Services Inc. and Transcontinental Airlines - going back to the 1980s.  According to court records, the companies "existed only on paper."  Pearlman won investors' confidence with fake financial statements created by a fictitious accounting firm.
Victims who lost millions oand hundreds of thousands of dollars in the scam told the court at sentencing how Pearlman ruined their lives.  One woman said she lost half her retirement savings and was living on Social Security.  A widow described how her 87-year-old husband broke down in tears after learning they'd been scammed, according to court transcripts.
With Pearlman's death, some of the musicians he once managed, expressed mixed feelings on Saturday night.
"He might not have been a stand-up businessman, but I wouldn't be doing what I love today [without] his influence," former 'NSync member Lance Bass said on Twitter.
Chris Kirkpatrick, founding member of the hit group, said he was feeling "mixed emotions right now."

Man tries to kill black man for kissing a white woman in public

A self-proclaimed white supremacist stabbed an interracial couple in Olympia, Washington this week.
The attacker, 32-year-old Daniel Rowe stabbed a 47-year-old black man who was out with his 35-year-old white girlfriend. The man was stabbed in the abdomen while the woman suffered a “superficial knife wound,” according to police. Both are in stable condition after the attack.

According to Wright, the teenage sweethearts have remained close since their 2006 split but even were such not the case, it is more than likely that the 33-year-old rapper would still have come through, considering he and Wright raised little Ryan as their own. But if there were anything that she knew wouldn't be probable, it would have been Wayne showing up at the funeral. Aside from him having expressed being adverse to attracting media to such a sacred place, she was already aware that her ex doesn't do funerals. "He really can't handle funerals. Neither can I," said Wright. "It was so hard to see my two brothers in caskets. I had nightmares afterward. It was so hard."
Wright was hosting a party in Baton Rouge on July 31, when she got the call telling her that Ryan ["Rudy" Johnson], 24, and Joshua ["Fish" Johnson], 31, had been shot and left for dead in their car. The incident took place in New Orleans' Seventh Ward. Ryan and Joshua's funeral was held on August 5. Since saying her final goodbyes, Wright has had to cope with her emotions while moving forward with the business of her upcoming WeTV series, Marriage Boot Camp, and preparing for the impending release of her memoir next month. "Me and my daughter both wish we had one more day to say, 'I love you,'" says Wright.
