WATCH: Cardi B Parties With Bad Bunny & J Balvin in Colorful “I Like It” Video

Cardi B is on a roll!

Just one week after dropping her “Be Careful” video, Cardi B is back with the release of the music video for her latest single “I Like It,” featuring Bad Bunny and J. Balvin.

The colorful Eif Rivera-directed video finds the pregnant rapper—dressed in garments inspired by the late legendary Latin singer Celia Cruz—meeting up with her collaborators for a dance party that starts in the club and ends up in the streets of Miami.

The Billboard Hot 100 charting song samples Pete Rodriguez’s “I Like It Like That” and is a strong contender for song of the summer.

While Cardi continues her non-stop promotional campaign for her debut album Invasion of Privacy, the 25-year-old mommy-to-be is also patiently awaiting the birth of her first child with her fiancé Offset. “I love my little one, I wanna kiss her,” she shared on Twitter.

Baby Cardi will make her big arrival sometime near the end of the summer right before Cardi is due to kick off her joint tour with Bruno Mars.

Check out her “I Like It” video above.

Man Born Without Arms Says It’s the Best Thing That’s Ever Happened to Him

Being born without arms would be devastating for most people. But one extremely optimistic man doesn’t see it that way. In fact, he doesn’t even look at it as a disability, instead choosing to see his birth defect as a blessing from God.

Daniel Ritchie, a man who was born without arms, wrote an opinion piece for Fox News talking about what it’s like to live without upper limbs.

Ritchie—who uses his feet to complete daily tasks we all take for granted—says he gets questions all the time, like “How do you brush your teeth?” or “How do you drive?” or “How do you put on clothes?”

But he says one of the most common questions people ask, once they’re comfortable being around him, is: “If you could choose to have arms, would you?” His answer is shocking. “While it is not just a cut and dry answer, I end up telling people no,” the married father-of-two wrote.

Ritchie continues:

“Being born without arms might be the single greatest thing that has happened to me, apart from my salvation. God has taken a disability that many would see as a disaster and used it to mold and shape me as a man and a believer. My disability and the pain that came with it has allowed me to see more distinctly the character of God. He comforted me, assured me and strengthened me when there seemed to be no source of hope.

“My hurt also taught me a lot about myself. My trials and tribulations are tools that God has used to mold and shape me – for my good and his glory. My pain is a gift and if I can see it as such I will begin to be molded in the right ways.

“Ultimately, my pain shows us the true substance of my faith. Peter says in his letter to the persecuted church to rejoice because of our trials knowing that “the tested genuineness of our faith” is refined in the crucible of my hurt.”

He then goes on to list four ways he’s learned to “navigate the suffering in [his life].”

#1 – Mourn over your pain:

“I grew up in an age where boys didn’t cry – over anything. The same can be said in our current culture. We are rarely vulnerable with others and the spirit of the age pushes us to march on in spite of the inner turmoil that rages inside of us.

“I was not able to fully come to grips with the emotional pain that comes with feeling different until I began to grieve over that hurt. There came a freedom and release as I cried over the years of hurt and isolation I had felt. All of the doubts, questions and frustrations poured out of me.

“As I cried and mourned, God grieved with me. He heard my anger, my frustration and my pain. He was there with me, even when I did not realize it. My grief and brokenness were the first steps toward the healing of my hurt.”

#2 – Pray in the midst of your pain:

“It was in the midst of my brokenness that I realized I needed help. I was never going to be able to crawl out of my despair and self-shame apart from the grace of God. I needed an Almighty God to stitch the brokenness of my life back together.

“As I prayed, I was not telling God anything he did not already know, but what I was doing was acknowledging a complete dependence on him. He was my source and my strength – and I needed to seek out that source every day in my road to healing.”

#3 – Write down what you see:

“Pain has a powerful ability to blind me to what is both ahead of me and behind me. Often all I notice is how bad my pain is and that is it.

“As I started to journal through my pain, I began to notice all the ways I was growing over a long period of time. I was starting to see the ways that God was answering my prayers – even in ways I did not expect.

“God was working in my pain and I just needed to lay out a foot-written, concrete timeline for me to see it. Suffering and trials were refining me, it was not going to define me. By journaling everything that happened in the midst of my hurt, it gave me the bird’s eye view of how God is molding me in my life.”

And #4 – Reach outward, not inward:

“Another effect of our pain is that it pushes me to isolate myself from everyone else in my life, but that is the exact opposite of what God wants me to do. God has designed his church to be a place where we can, as Galatians 6:2 says, “bear one another’s burdens.” Find people who can cry with you, pray with you, encourage you and love you in your hurt.

“As God comforts me in my hurt, what I began to see is that I now have a chance to love others in that same sort of hurt. In such a unique and beautiful way, God gives me a chance to seek out others who have gone down the same dark path that I have so I can show them there is hope on the other side.

“Pain in this life is a guarantee, but it is also a guarantee that God will be with you through whatever you have to face in this life. As your pain pushes you to isolation push yourself towards God and to the people who love you the most. You have a story to tell, don’t let the pain of life silence you.”

According to Fox News, Daniel Ritchie is a speaker and writer from Huntersville, North Carolina. He is married with two children (a daughter and a son). His first book, “My Affliction for His Glory,” was released in April 2018.

He wrote another piece for Fox News back in May, in which he described how some people treat him out in public:

“Weirdo… Gross… Freak… Those are words I’ve had spoken to me over the past few years at restaurants. All of them, directed at me, not because I was doing anything offensive, mind you. No, I was being shamed because I was eating. The issue is … that I don’t eat like everyone else. I eat with my feet.

“I also drive with my feet and brush my teeth with my feet. I do everything with my feet because I was born without arms. But, that doesn’t limit me. By God’s grace, I’ve been able to live a full life that has included graduating college, marrying my best friend Heather, raising two beautiful kids and serving in ministry for over a decade. The way I’ve lived my life isn’t much different than anyone else.

“Well, from my perspective, at least.”

“Chaka Khan Net Worth” Google Result Is Giving the Internet Lots of LOLs

For most people, when they have questions about something, they turn to Google, which 9 times out of 10 gives them the answer(s) they desire. Sometimes, however, the search engine giant returns not-so-expected results that end up being HEE-LARIOUS.

Like that one time a search of “New England Patriots owner” or “Patriots owner” returned the result “Nick Foles,” the Quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles and Super Bowl MVP. Of course, Nick Foles doesn’t actually OWN the Patriots (though he did “own” them in the Super Bowl), but that’s what made the whole thing funny. It ended up going viral on social media and Google eventually fixed it.

Now, someone has pointed out yet another hilarious “Google Blooper.” When you input the search terms “Chaka Khan net worth,” you get this:

That is NOT a picture of Chaka Khan, obviously. It’s actually the late R&B singer/songwriter Nick Ashford, one half of the legendary soul duo Ashford and Simpson. And the Internet is having a whole field day over the Google blunder.

Oddly enough, the actual link to the search result shows the correct photo of Chaka Khan, so I have no idea why Google is showing Nick Ashford on the SERP (Search Engine Result Page).

If I were Chaka Khan, I would be drafting a NASTY e-mail to Google HQ right about now. How dare they?! (LOL). Anyhow, if you want to see the hilarity for yourself, you’d better hurry up before Google finds out and fixes it.

Drake Has Already Taken a DNA Test and Flew “Secret” Son Adonis Out on Private Jet for Christmas (Report)

Drake has met his rumored son Adonis “multiple times” AND has already taken a DNA test proving that he’s the boy’s father, according to a new report from TMZ, which totally contradict Pusha T’s “deadbeat” dad claims.

Days ago, a report from TMZ emerged quoting sources close to Drake, saying that the rapper was financially supporting the baby, who was born on October 24th, 2017 (ironically Drake’s own birthday), while he awaits a paternity test.

However, a new report from the gossip site claims that friends of Drake’s alleged former porn star baby mama Sophie Brussaux say that Drake has already taken the DNA test, which confirmed that he is, indeed, the father of the 7-month-old baby.

Sources connected to Sophie tell TMZ … Drizzy wasn’t present when she gave birth, but he’s been actively involved since a paternity test confirmed he’s the father.

Our Drake sources say no paternity test has been taken yet … but Sophie has a different story. We’re told Drake met his alleged son, Adonis, shortly after the test and has seen him multiple times.

TMZ’s sources add that Drake has flown Sophie and Adonis to be with him, and the Grammy-winning rapper even charted a private jet for his son and baby mama on Christmas. See the photo below, taken on Christmas Eve, for proof:

Pusha T accused Drake of being a deadbeat dad in his diss track against the Candian rapper called “The Story of Adidon,” but if these TMZ reports are true, it sounds like he’s doing his part as a father … he just hasn’t publicly acknowledged the kid yet.

Did Reginae Carter & Her Boyfriend YFN Lucci Get Arrested in Knoxville, Tennessee?

It looks like Reginae Carter and her older boyfriend YFN Lucci landed themselves in some trouble with police Friday night (Jun 1) in Knoxville, Tennessee.

Reginae, the 19-year-old daughter of Toya Wright and Grammy-winning rapper Lil Wayne, had social media concerned as reports emerged that she and YFN Lucci, a 27-year-old rapper from Atlanta, were arrested.

According to some reports, Reginae and Lucci were detained and taken into police custody after a fight and a shooting at an after hours spot (i.e. liquor house).

Video footage showing the couple’s run-in with Knoxville police went viral on the internet, however, Reginae assured fans via her Instagram story that she was NOT arrested. “I’m okay guys. I am not in jail btw,” she wrote.

Lucci himself wrote on Twitter, “EVERYTHING IS OK.”

An eyewitness told Urban Islandz that the pair was pulled over and placed in handcuffs. They were eventually let go without any charges or an official arrest. “They weren’t under arrest, but for some reason the cops felt it necessary to detain them at least for a few hours,” the witness said.

Commenters on the live video, which was posted on Facebook, seemed to be disappointed with Reginae, who is a straight-A student at Spelman College in Atlanta.

One commenter told Reginae to be careful, saying, “Hood boyfriends are the best they said. When are these young girls gonna learn? This is Not how college goes….. I pray its a misunderstanding no one needs or deserve jail. This isn’t gonna end well this reckless lifestyle young free and in love…Don’t we all know this stage????”

Another commenter surprised to see the teen in a messy situation involving police wrote, “This girl never been in any kind of trouble her whole life and now all of a sudden. The thug life ain’t for you sis. What happens when you wanna be in that life so bad. Smart decisions Lil mama. That dad you always bragging about worked so hard so you never even had to step foot in the hood. Lucci wrong af forever having her around a crowd she shouldn’t be around anyway. So quick to be down and try to end up with the pics in the shade room.When you thought you were ready to be a ride or die chick.”

Reginae and YFN have been dating for a few months now. The couple sparked dating rumors back in February and have been spotted out together on several occasions, including on Memorial Day Weekend when they were spotted on a boat with some friends in Miami (above). Some commenters pointed out how “questionable” the photo looked.

Reginae and Lucci have also posted numerous photos of them “boo’d up” on their respective Instagram pages.

Peach Secured! Guess Who’s a Full Time “Real Housewives of Atlanta” Cast Member Now?

Amid reports that Kenya Moore and Sheree Whitfield have lost their Real Housewives of Atlanta peaches comes news that a friend of the show has officially snagged a peach of her own, and you may (or may not) be able to guess who it is.

Is it longtime “friend” Marlo Hampton? Or what about new “friend” Shamea Morton?

According to The Jasmine Brand, it’s neither one of the two aforementioned RHOA friends. It’s …

EVA MARCILLE!

Yes, you read that right, Eva Marcille will be an official peach-holding cast member for the upcoming 11th season of Real Housewives of Atlanta.

Instagram Photo

TJB reports:

Last season, Eva was a friend to the show and was introduced to the RHOA group via NeNe Leakes.

Sources tell us that it’s likely her storyline for the upcoming season will revolve around her being a new mom again (she and fiancee Michael Sterling welcomed a baby boy last month).

We’re also told it’s highly likely that viewers will watch her prepare to walk down the aisle with Michael.

Eva and Atlanta-based attorney Michael Sterling became engaged back in December 2017, and their son, Michael Sterling Jr., was born on April 13, 2018.

Eva also has a daughter named Marley (born January 2014) from her previous relationship with singer-songwriter Kevin McCall. Eva and Kevin broke up in 2014 and Marcille has stated that she has sole custody of their daughter.

Of course, Eva isn’t new to the world of reality TV. In addition to her appearances on RHOA Season 10, she was a cast member on Oxygen’s reality show Girlfriend Confidential: LA, and in 2017, she competed in the inaugural season of VH1’s Scared Famous. She was also a co-star on BET’s About the Business.

As an actress, Eva has also appeared on shows like The Young and the Restless, Smallville, Let’s Stay Together, House of Payne and BET’s The Real Husbands of Hollywood. She also has a few movie credits under her belt—2006’s “Crossover” and 2007’s “I Think I Love My Wife.”

Eva Marcille started her Hollywood career at the age of 19 by winning the third cycle of America’s Next Top Model in 2004.

Draymond Green Is Dating Former “Basketball Wives” Star Hazel Renee

Last year, rumors began to circulate that Draymond Green had left his baby mama Jelissa Hardy for reality TV star Hazel Renee. At the time, Green blew the reports off as “fake news,” but now it looks like the rumors were true. Draymond Green and Hazel Renee really are dating, and look to be a very happy couple.

The news was confirmed when Hazel was not only spotted at Game 7 of the Warriors-Rockets series with Draymond’s adorable 17-month-old son Draymond Jr., but also when cameras caught Hazel and Draymond kissing after the Warriors’ win over the Rockets to advance to the 2018 NBA Finals.

Things must be pretty serious between Draymond and Hazel if she’s watching his son while he’s working. And not only that, but Draymond Jr.’s mom, Jelissa Hardy, must be OK with it as well, so it looks like Draymond and Jelissa have a pretty good co-parenting relationship.

And who exactly is Hazel Renee, you ask? Well, in addition to being Draymond Green’s new girlfriend, she’s also a reality TV star who appeared on “Basketball Wives” Season 6 and also briefly appeared on “Real Housewives of Atlanta” as a friend of Kandi Burruss.

Yep, Orlando Brown Really Did Get a Giant Tattoo of Raven-Symoné’s Face on His Chest

Orlando Brown is trying his best to take the title from Kanye West as the leader of our troubled black male stars. Brown gave us the ultimate WTF moment earlier this week when he revealed his fresh chest tattoo of Raven-Symoné.

“You trying to get this picture. You seen this yet?” Brown says wearing a fake gold crown and oversized sunglasses in a video that went viral earlier this week. He then showed off a new giant tattoo of a girl that bears a striking resemblance to a young Raven.

Brown and Raven have had a complicated relationship over the years. The two starred in Disney Channel’s That So Raven between 2003 and 2007. However, Brown was not asked to return to the show’s latest spinoff/reboot, Raven’s Home, which premiered in July 2017 and was renewed for a second season.

In recent years, Brown has claimed that he and Raven had a relationship back in the day and even claimed that she aborted his child in a 2016 music video. Raven has since distanced herself from her former co-star.

“Raven did not bail me out, my wife did. Raven ain’t even tryin’ to talk to me right now,” he said in an Instagram video in 2016 after being arrested for a domestic dispute with his then-girlfriend. “She think I stole her damn phone. I ain’t a crackhead!”

Brown has had several run-ins with the law, including DUIs and domestic violence arrests. He was arrested in April for outstanding warrants after failing to appear in court for allegedly hitting his girlfriend in 2016.
