Selena Gomez is in ‘good place’

Published

on

Selena Gomez is in a “really good place.”

The 27-year-old singer is preparing to release her next album – the follow up to 2015’s ‘Revival’ – towards the end of the year and is looking forward to her fans hearing it because she’s feeling positive and ready to share what she’s been through.

A source told ‘Entertainment Tonight’: “Selena is in a really good place. She just celebrated her birthday in Italy and is really enjoying this time off before things ramp up again. Selena has been working on new music and plans to release some this year. The new music is going to be a different side of Selena and very personal. Selena has gone through a lot over the years and is ready to share it with the world.”

The brunette beauty’s new LP will touch on the “huge moments” in her life including a kidney transplant, a stint in rehab to address her mental health issues and break-ups with Justin Bieber and The Weeknd.

Selena said recently: “It took me four years now to even feel at a good place with this album, and it’s just because I had such huge moments that happened in my life personally that [it was like] how was I going to capture that and how was I actually going to feel good about what I was saying? So, I kept going and I’m relieved now.”

Meanwhile, the ‘Wolves’ hitmaker – who has one of the most followed Instagram accounts in the world – recently insisted that although it’s an “amazing platform”, spending too much time online can leave young people “exposed”.

 

She said: “For my generation specifically, social media has been terrible.

“I understand that it’s amazing to use as a platform but it does scare me when you see how exposed these young girls and boys are. I think it’s dangerous for sure.”

Amber Rose Welcomes Baby Boy With Boyfriend Alexander Edwards

Published

on

Congrats are in order for Amber Rose and rapper Alexander “A.E.” Edwards, who welcomed their first child together on Thursday!

The proud new parents shared the happy news on social media, with Rose sharing videos from inside the delivery room to her Instagram story. The clips showed A.E. passing the time with Rose’s family as they waited on the birth, and adorably playing “rock, paper, scissors” with her 6-year-old son, Sebastian — whom she shares with ex Wiz Khalifa.

A.E. later took to his own Instagram page to share a shot of his new baby boy, whom the couple named Slash Electric Alexander Edwards.

“Slash Electric Alexander Edwards.. the world is urs now ❤️,” Edwards captioned the pic of him kissing his son’s head. “Thank u @amberrose for loving me so much that u put ur body thru it 2 bring my sun in2 the world. I could never be as strong as u. Slash a rockstar ❤️.”

Rose announced she was pregnant in April, Instagramming a photo of herself at the doctor’s office getting an ultrasound. Rose and Edwards, the Vice President of Def Jam Recordings’ A&R, were first rumored to be dating in October of last year.

“@ae4president and I are SUPER excited to announce that we have a Sweet little Baby Boy on the way!” she wrote. “P.S Sebastian is soooooo Happy to be a big brother!”

In August, Rose announced on Instagram that she was canceling her annual Slutwalk — which she created in 2015 to spread messages of body positivity, gender equality and sexual enlightenment to the public — in order to protect her “energy and peace” during her pregnancy. She also said she “stopped being friends with about 20 people last year” whom she claims stole from her, cheated on her, lied to her or were addicts and toxic people.

“I’m so happy God has blessed me with a New Baby and an Amazing Man to help me through all the turmoil,” she said. “That’s why I’ve been laying so low during this pregnancy. No Toxicity will be tolerated over here only Positive vibes. F**k fake friends and their weirdo sh*t. I’d rather just have my family and my team.”

ET spoke with Rose last May, when she talked about representing for fellow mothers.

“Moms are allowed to be sexy,” she said. “We are allowed to still have fun. We are allowed to go out at night when our kids are asleep and still have a good time. Our lives are not over because we have children.”

“I almost go overboard on purpose to kinda piss people off and make them say mean things about me, so women can be like, ‘I need that! I need to see that,'” she continued. “That gives them more confidence. … You can’t just sit in the house and not have a life anymore because you have children or because your husband is away working. It’s just not fair. You only have one life to live and you should live it to the fullest.”

Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott: Everything We Know About Their Break

Published

on

Fans were shocked to learn that Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott were taking a break.

The makeup mogul and the rapper, who share 1-year-old daughter Stormi, have yet to speak out on their separation. However, a source confirms to ET that the two “haven’t been together as a couple for roughly a month.”

While there have been many signs that might have led to them going their separate ways, here is everything we know about their decision to take time apart.

Jenner and Scott had previously taken a break.

A source tells ET that Jenner and Scott briefly broke up in February after rumors surfaced that the rapper cheated. At the time, Scott’s rep denied cheating claims. “Travis Scott vehemently denies he cheated on Kylie. It is not true. He did not cheat,” his rep told ET in a statement. “He canceled one show tonight because he is under the weather.”

As of now, a source tells ET that “Kylie and Travis haven’t been together as a couple for roughly a month, but they’re on good terms.”

“The couple has been hot and cold since their last breakup, and haven’t been able to fully get on the same page again,” the source explains. “They are both extremely busy with different schedules and since Kylie found out about Travis messaging another girl on Instagram, the rebuilding of trust has been hard.”

“Although they aren’t together now, they’re both open to getting back together in the future,” the source continues. “Above all, Kylie and Travis know their priority will and always has been Stormi.”

Jenner and Scott have different priorities.

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star wants her boyfriend to be “more dedicated to the family,” a source tells E! News.

“Kylie is young, but she really wants the traditional family life. She has seen her older sisters with big families and multiple kids and she wants the same,” a source told the outlet. “She loved being at home with Travis and their daughter, Stormi Webster, more than anything. But right now, their priorities are different.”

“It was hard for him to becoming home every night to be with the family and putting Stormi to bed. That’s not where he is in his life,” the source revealed. “It made Kylie insecure and anxious. Last few months, Kylie felt they were drifting and she was never really sure what was going on.”

Jenner is ready for marriage; Scott might not be.

“She wants to get married and have more kids and it became clear that he can’t give that to her right now,” the same source told E! News about Jenner’s future plans.

In July, a source told ET that Jenner and Scott had discussed marriage and expanding their family. “Travis has told friends how much he loves Kylie and wants to propose, but he wants to do it the right way. Travis doesn’t want to rush the process,” the source explained. “However, they might not be on the same page.”

The reality star wants more kids.

Jenner has been vocal about wanting to expand her family. In October, she told fans that she “definitely” wants to have another girl, when answering fan questions on her social media.

“I want another baby, but when is the question. And I’m definitely not ready right this second and I don’t know when I will be,” she noted. She echoed her statements in a March 2019 interview with Germany’s Interview magazine.

While Scott hasn’t shared his thoughts on wanting another little one, a source tells People that the rapper “isn’t ready to give her all that she wants.”

“There were several issues that made them decide to take a break. Kylie is all about family life and really wants a second baby,” the source shared. “She still has trust issues with Travis. He hasn’t been giving her the commitment that she needs. Travis isn’t ready to give her all that she wants.”

“Kylie looks up to Kim and really wants what she has with Kanye [West],” the source added.
