Beyonce’s Preggers

52

Beyonce confirmed her pregnancy on the MTV VMA’s “black” carpet tonight. No word on when the baby’s due or what she’s having but I’ll bet there are a ton of Tina Knowles maternity clothes on the production line right now. Somewhere, Kelly Rowland and her oiled up legs are pissed.

Seriously though, congrats to Bey & Jay.

Are Girls Getting Knocked Up For MTV?

Posted by Witch Hazel | Posted in Brew News, knocked up, mtv | Posted on 07-12-2010

Now that MTV is devoting half its programming to following teenage mothers (the other half belongs to the self-proclaimed guidos), word is that young girls may be trying to get pregnant, just to get on MTV’s 16 and Pregnant and Teen Mom. Both shows are hits and some of the teen mothers have gone on to become tabloid stars in their own right (not to mention, MTV pays about $60K to be on the show each season).

PopEater reports:

Insiders tell me young ladies are so eager to be on reality TV that they are actually getting pregnant just to score an audition. OK, not much of a surprise. Simply take a spin around the various Internet forums filled with young girls inquiring about what’s required to score a role.

“This is yet another example of the desperation of fame,” Matt Titus, a relationship expert from TheLoveConsultants.com, tells me. “The sad state of reality television has created a lowbrow vehicle for untainted train wreck personalities to display their private lives. Getting pregnant to be famous is like eating as many cockroaches as possible in a one minute period.”

So, rather than reality TV actually reflecting people’s real lives, these girls are creating new realities for themselves just to get on a TV show? Where’s an after school special when you need it?

Water is wet. And Alicia Keys is knocked up. Duuuh!

People magazine finally joins the info train and reports that Alicia Keys is pregnant! Baby makes three for Alicia and her toucan boo, Swizz Beatz.

From People:
The musicians “are expecting a baby and are engaged to be married in a private ceremony later this year,” reps for the couple confirm to PEOPLE.

The announcement comes after the two, together since fall 2008, attended Thursday night’s Black Ball in London, which benefits Keys’s Keep a Child Alive charity.

“They’re very happy,” says a friend of the couple.

Of course, Swizzy has 2 kids (a 9 year old from a previous relationship and a 3 year old with a woman scorned, ex-wife Mashonda).

Swizzy has maintained that his relationship with Alicia was not the cause of the breakdown of his marriage. He told MTV back in 2008, “everybody can have their fun right now talking that dumb sh– about my divorce and all that. I’mma give them something to talk about. People get divorced every f—in’ day. They need to worry about more serious things.”

Well I guess he told us!

Brew News: Beat Your Children, So I Don’t Have To

Posted by Elphaba Of The Brew | Posted in i hate kids, knocked up, teen pregnancy | Posted on 16-10-2009

Let me start this off with saying, I have a dear friend who had a child at a young age- but she honestly was/is the best single mom. Her kid was ALWAYS with her.

She is an interested and engaged parent that manages to spend quality time with her child as well as have a social life. She even graduated from College (that’s my boo!)

HOWEVAH, she is the exception NOT the rule…and I just wonder if this is sooo okay in this school what shot in hell do the babies of these ‘mothers’ have at a successful thriving life? Especially without the support of thier families. Not to mention lack of a dad is setting up a girl for a rough road ahead- even if she avoids pregnancy. (Real talk Fridays!)

These lil mofos right here are gonna cause me to stroke out at my keyboard, with their nonchalant attitudes. Jesus take the wheel already! I just had a thought, what if it was just one dad knockin’ the students up… Like Groundskeeper Willie or somethin’… ha!














Why Did 1 Of 8 Girls Get Pregnant At Robeson High?
It is a Chicago public school full of energy and spirit. It has about 800 girls, and 115 of them have something in common – something you might find disturbing.

All those young ladies are moms or moms-to-be at Paul Robeson High School. It’s not a school for young mothers, it’s a neighborhood school. And all of the pregnancies have happened, despite prevention talk.

If you want to know why, the people closest to the situation say there’s no simple explanation.
Chicago Public Schools says it does not track the overall number of teen moms in the district. But Robeson Principal Gerald Morrow knows the count at his school in Englewood: 115 young ladies who are either expecting or already have had children.
To put it in perspective, their school pictures would fill roughly six pages of their high school year book.
Why is it happening at Robeson?

“It can be a lot of things that are happening in the home or not happening in the home, if you will,” Morrow said. Absentee fathers are another factor, he said.
LaDonna Denson and two other Robeson students say parents not talking to teens and, in some cases, the pursuit of public assistance also factor into the pregnancies. None of them thought they’d be moms at such a young age.
They said they have support at home. But not all girls do, they said. In fact, some girls get thrown out of the home.
Not on Morrow’s turf. “We’re not looking at them like ‘Ooh you made a mistake,’” he said. “We’re looking at how we can get them to the next phase, how can we still get them thinking about graduation?”
So there’s help in a teen parent program. And coming soon, right across from Robeson, developers are turning a one-time crack house into a day care for student use. “We have to provide some type of environment for them and some form of support for them,” Van Vincent, CEO of VLV Development, said.
It’s all made an impression.
“Just cause you have a baby, that doesn’t mean your life is over,” one student said.
One thing they might not know about their principal: His mom had him when she was 15. That’s why accepting the problem — and working through it — is so important to him. SOURCE
