Kelly Rowland Reveals She’s Having a Baby Boy

Kelly Rowland

It’s a boy for Kelly Rowland! The “Motivation” singer has confirmed that she and her husband are expecting their first son.

During an interview with FOX411 (via E! Online), the mom-to-be accidentally revealed her baby’s gender.

“We’re very excited,” she said. “So far, everything has been good. I just feel like the baby is already [spoiled] rotten–like literally, my Caress family has gotten him all of his little bathing stuff, his toys. It’s just so cool.”

Once she realized that she had slipped, she sighed and laughed, “It, it’s…aw, f**k it! It’s a boy. It’s a boy!”

She then asked her publicist to phone her husband Tim Witherspoon. “Can you please tell him that I spilled the beans?” she said before telling her belly, “I’m sorry, baby.”

But it shouldn’t come as a big surprise. Kelly has been seen shopping for boy’s clothes and previously posted a photo of baby Jordans, writing, “I’ll be stuntin like my daddy.”

In June, she announced that she was pregnant after marrying her manager in Costa Rica in May.

In the meantime, the pregnant singer has been decorating her son’s new digs. “My baby’s nursery is fly,” she said. “I just wanted it to feel like a comfortable museum. Almost loft-y like. It’s just looks really cool. He’s got these huge pieces of artwork. It’s just really fresh.”

Kelly is nominated for Best Video With a Social Message for “Dirty Laundry” at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards, airing August 24.

Remy Ma’s Prison Release Delayed

Remy Ma

Remy Ma’s homecoming has been delayed. Contrary to reports, the Bronx rapper remains behind bars.

The 34-year-old, born Reminisce Smith, was expected to be released from Bedford Hills Correctional Facility for Women in New York on Thursday morning after serving six years for shooting her former friend Makeda Barnes-Joseph. However, she is still in custody.

According to Miss Info, prison officials told Remy’s husband Papoose that she would not be released as planned. The rapper was seen driving away in his white Lamborghini and remained calm despite the news.

An official at Bedford Hills informed REVOLT that Remy was involved in a disciplinary problem on July 21, the same day she called into Angie Martinez on Power 105.1. Due to that infraction, she must wait until a report about the incident has been filed.

Remy Ma reportedly spent the last week of her incarceration in solitary confinement, but her team did not believe it would delay her release.

The New York State Department of Corrections inmate database currently lists her as being “in custody.”

There is no timetable or current release date set.


Jessie J Performs ‘Bang Bang’ Acoustic

Jessie J

With the song sitting at No. 1 on iTunes, Jessie J stopped by Z100′s “Elvis Duran & The Morning Show” this week to perform an acoustic rendition of her Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande-assisted hit “Bang Bang.”

Despite a seven-hour flight delay, the 26-year-old Brit still wowed with her big vocals. Plus, she performed a cover of Sam Smith’s “Stay With Me.”

During her promo run, she also paid a visit to Hot 97. When asked about rumors that she will perform “Bang Bang” at the MTV VMAs, she remained coy, saying, “Maybe.”

Jessie, Nicki, and Ariana will go in front of the lens in L.A. today to shoot a video for the song, which will appear on Jessie’s upcoming third album, due this fall.


Rap-Up TV: K Camp Talks ‘Cut Her Off’ Success, Dream Collaboration

K Camp is riding high off the success of “Cut Her Off.” Originally intended as a mixtape cut, the strip club anthem off his EP In Due Time has taken off and even surprised the Atlanta rapper.

“When I saw the reaction in the strip clubs in Atlanta, I knew it was a problem,” he told Rap-Up TV. “I knew it was gonna do something, but I ain’t know it was gon’ do this. I’m blessed right now, so I’ma continue to work.”

Everyone from Rick Ross to Tiny has recorded a remix, but he’s not too fond of the latter. “They tryna cut dicks off, man. I ain’t wit’ that,” he said of Tiny’s male-bashing remake “Cut It Off” featuring Shekinah.

While in L.A., K Camp has been in the studio with Ty Dolla $ign, Problem, Big Sean, and The Game. He is also featured on Bow Wow’s upcoming single “Right Now.”

But he has his eye on one particular collaboration. “I always say André [3000] and Bun B. Ever since I came up, I said if I get a record with Bun B, I know I made it. Bun B is that plateau, like Drake did it, everybody get that Bun B record, so once I get that Bun B record, I’m OK.”

The SlumLord boss is currently working on his full-length album and hopes to have a career like Lil Wayne, Drake, and Jay Z. “I look up to Jay Z business-wise and what he did with the game,” he said. “[Dr.] Dre, that’s powerful. I look up to artists like that. It’s more than music. I see the business. I’m trying to do it all. Just trying to feed my kids’ kids.”

Earlier this week, K Camp debuted the video for “Blessing,” the second single off his EP In Due Time.
