The cover star talks to Upscale about how to be Black, feminism, love and the power of her body.
On her new show “Black-ish”:
“The beauty of the show is that it’s just a family comedy, but it has another layer to it. I don’t know what I necessarily want people to think or talk about after watching it, but for me in general with cultural identity, racial identity and feminist identity, dialogue is important. People communicating in a light and open way about issues that have a lot of depth and weight to them is a great thing.”
On what it means to be Black:
“What is blackness? What is being black? Who defines that and do we need to define that? I don’t have the answers to all of those questions but I think these are the conversations we’re all still having.”
On loving her body:
“I’m proud of my body—I work very hard to keep my body at 41 years old, because my booty could drop… Gravity is not a joke.”
On advice and romance:
“Any one rule [as it pertains to romantic relationships] that people think works everywhere is just not true. In general, with everything it’s an intimate discovery of trusting yourself and allowing yourself the room to have curiosity about life and self.”
Adrienne Bailon look Glamorous in the September issue for Latina Magazine. Here is excerpt of her interview where she is talking about her ex-boyfriend Rob Kardashian.
Now if you are a Kardashian fan then you that family is having some issue Rob. Well once again here is hard blow to the guts. Check it out below:
Adrienne pointed out that Rob wasn’t innocent, saying: ‘It’s common knowledge that he cheated on me. It always bothered me that people were like, “Pero, why couldn’t you forgive him?”
‘Why are women always the ones who have to forgive? If you cheated on a man, he would be like, “You’re disgusting, and I want nothing to do with you.” But women, we’re supposed to be like, “He messed up. He made a mistake.”’
And the 30-year-old was quick to affirm that she didn’t have any regrets about ending things with the reality star, 27.
‘In my situation, it wasn’t like, “Oh my God! I made a mistake!”’ she admitted. ‘He strategically planned things out so that he could cheat on me, and that to me was so disloyal.’
But one thing Adrienne does regret is appearing on Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
‘To be stuck with that Kardashian label, that was so hurtful to me and to my career,’ Adrienne revealed. ‘I probably realized that too late – not that it would’ve affected my decisions in terms of who I dated, but it would’ve affected my decision to appear on the show.’
The star explained that she didn’t think ‘anyone would even care,’ but is still getting grief.
‘To this day, people will still say, “You ruined Rob’s life!” and I’ll think, “Damn, I was still playing with Barbie dolls when I met him.”’
While she admits she was very young when she fell for the sock entrepreneur, that didn’t stop Adrienne from getting a tattoo of his name. She explained to Us Weekly: ‘I was genuinely in love with him and thought, “If he’s going to do this, I’m going to do this, too.”’
However the singer and actress, who these days is loved up with Roc Nation’s Lenny S., is now getting the inking removed.
‘I have not been in a relationship with Rob for six years,’ she told the publication earlier this month. ‘And I’ve been with my current boyfriend for five years. I think it’s time to remove it.’
Adrienne appears on the cover of Latina’s September issue, looking flawless with gold eye shadow, nude lips and an embellished black and gold dress.
Artist Omarion and his soon to be his child mother/girlfriend attended the private screening of the movie Lucy in LA.

According to DailyMail.com Kim Kardashian is once again running her mouth where later on she might have to put her foot in it.
Kim Kardashian post a picture of her husband Kanye West and brother-in-law Scott Disick.
Kim captioned the photo with “#ThrowbackThursday #LastYear #StyleIcons #LordDisick” . Basically Kim is saying that Beyonce and her husband are kopycats because Kim husband Kanye West was wearing the ski mask a year before the On The Run Tour and that Kanye is a StyleIcon.
Kimmy Cake better hope that the Beygency does not come for her.
Meanwhile Kim Kardashian was seen at LAX airport tonight arriving from Mexico with her daughter North West. No her husband Kanye West was not with her after that lovely vacation they have together along with friends being there with them.
I’m so loving these Brian Atwood “Tribeca” Mary Jane Platform heels especially in this color scheme.
Having a major shoe orgasm over here just thinking all the damage I can do is these heels.

When Bromance goes wrong. Today has been one of those days where you sit back and just let the drama fall in your lap.
Here we go Monday night, Stevie J decided to post a delightful picture of Benzino and his girlfriend Althea that look like she was about to do something I guess we can say adult things.
Even though this picture was post on Glamourvixen.net before I was requested by Benzino attorney to take the picture down. We just want to send a special Thanks to Stevie J for posting this picture again.
Althea was proud to announce to the world that picture was a private photo of her and Benzino. Which a he didn’t denied.
Things are about to get messy messy messy. Benzino gets on twitter and drop a nice cup of tea in the Twitter streets. I keep trying to tell folks twitter can be mean.
Benzino had his cup of tea boiling hot where he dump all the information about Stevie J and his girl Joseline. Check below:
I don’t know if this sizzling tea was for the sake of ratings. I hope in the end these two friends can put aside all this drama and once again have the Bromance they once had.
Earlier today Kim Kardashian and her husband Kanye West, was place in the hot seat for allowing their 1 year old daughter North West to travel on a plane from Los Angeles to New York with only nannies, security and an assistant. Check out the Pictures from TMZ.com below.
Kim Kardashian‘s 1-year-old baby is a full-on baller, flying 1st class from NYC to L.A. with nannies, an assistant, a nurse and a security guard … then whisked off the plane by Delta personnel and escorted home in a chauffeur-driven Porsche Panamera waiting for her on the tarmac.
North West did not fly with her mom or dad. Kanye was in France and flew to Miami. Kim flew to New York with North but then left for France for a day … so mom and daughter flew back home separately.
And no Ubers for North. She rolled up to JFK in Kanye’s Maserati and was greeted by her people.
Sure beats Chuck E. Cheese.
Check out TMZ
Kim Kardashian arrives back in LA
Soon as she arrives she meet her with her friend Carla. They both go to the hair and nail salon. While her husband is back in New York.
Kanye made a surprise performance at Chappelle’s show tonight.
All I can do is SMDH on this. I hope these 2 parents get it together and realize life is to short to be galloping all over the world and being proper parents to their daughter. You would think before Kim have done anything before she had mommy time was to go and check on her daughter.
Yesterday Sheneka Adams posted a picture on her instagram of abuse face where she was showing her support to domestic violence. Of course things went wrong.
Well you had people along with bloggers questioning whether or not did she actually get abuse by her boyfriend Jacob of York.
Instead of leaving the picture there and explaining why she had a abuse face she deletes it. Sheneka need to realize she has a platform along with a voice that by having that one picture could had been put to good use.
There are so many people out here that are being abuse that they are scare to let anyone know.
Back to the subject of this post. Well one blogger @teaspiller_ put her on blast.
Here is Sheneka Adams response:
“See this is the type of crap that makes me so angry. People like this who have no life that spread unnecessary rumors for no apparent reason. This is why I deleted the picture because I knew some dumb ass idiot would take it and make false accusations. This is very hurtful, I was only showing my support for those abused and affected by domestic violence, WHICH IS A SERIOUS PROBLEM AND IT’S NOTHING TO JOKE ABOUT. I can’t believe how disgusting people can be. Please report this fake page because it seems like their mission is to seek out people and hurt them smh -@teaspiller__ “
