Cardi B might be having a baby girl -- and she's already pretty feisty! The "Bartier Cardi" rapper hinted at the sex of her baby at the 2018 Met Gala in New York City on Monday. "Oh, she wants to fight me!" Cardi said when asked about her baby kicking -- using "she" instead of "he" -- on the red carpet. "[My dress weighs] about 35 pounds plus baby. It's OK though, I used to go up the project stairs." The 25-year-old rapper, who confirmed she was expecting her first child with Offset during her April appearance on Saturday Night Live, also referred to her baby as a girl in a pre-Met Gala interview with The New York Times. "Shorty weighs three and a half pounds. She do!” Cardi shared. "She do weigh three and a half pounds." "That’s pretty good for seven months, right?" she asked, looking around. "Because I was born five pounds." Cardi isn't the only one who has hinted at the sex of her baby. In a since-deleted Instagram caption last month, Cardi's sister, Hennessy Carolina, wrote: "I use to wish I was older than you just so I wouldve gotten the chance to carry you and give you kisses when you were a baby because you were so cute and adorable! and NOW that ur baby is coming its like it’s coming true! I’m going to be able to hold baby you and give her all the kisses and hugs!"
If Hollywood salaries were report cards, Emma Stone would earn an easy A. The 28-year-old star claimed the top spot in Forbes’ annual list of Tinseltown’s highest-paid actresses, taking in a cool $26 million for projects like “La La Land” over the 12-month period considered by the outlet. Stone’s starring turn as aspiring actress Mia in the Los Angeles–set movie musical helped propel the 2016 film’s domestic gross to $151 million. Next in line on Forbes’ list are Jennifer Aniston, who pulled in $25.5 million, and Jennifer Lawrence, who earned $24 million.
Priyanka Chopra has apologized after her TV show Quantico featured a controversial storyline about Indian terrorists. The episode, titled The Blood of Romeo, saw Chopra’s FBI agent Alex Parrish thwarting a terrorist attack on an international summit in New York by Indian nationalists, who stole weaponized uranium and sought to blame the planned violence on Pakistan. Fans were horrified that the show fictionalized the real-life historical tension between the two countries just days before a real-life summit between India and Pakistan in China. Chopra was targeted by viewers who criticised her for going along with the storyline, especially as she is of Indian descent. “I’m extremely saddened and sorry that some sentiments have been hurt by a recent episode of Quantico,” Chopra posted on Twitter on Saturday (09Jun18). “That was not and would never be my intention. I sincerely apologize. I’m a proud Indian and that will never change.” ABC, the network behind the show, also offered an apology for the content of the episode, that aired on 1 June. “(We) and the executive producers of Quantico would like to extend an apology to our audience who were offended by the most recent episode, The Blood of Romeo,” they said in a statement. “The episode has stirred a lot of emotion, much of which is unfairly aimed at Priyanka Chopra, who didn’t create the show, nor does she write or direct it. She has no involvement in the casting of the show or the storylines depicted in the series.” The network’s statement concluded: “Quantico is a work of fiction. The show has featured antagonists of many different ethnicities and backgrounds, but in this case we inadvertently and regrettably stepped into a complex political issue. It was certainly not our intention to offend anyone.” Quantico, which was canceled by ABC last month (May18), will come to an end after its current third season.
Camila Cabello's departure from Fifth Harmony in December left fans with a lot of questions -- including whether the group would keep their name as a foursome. According to the band, however, changing their name just wasn't the right choice. "It was obviously a thought, because it was a prevalent thing that there’s four of us, not five. Regardless, we were all very united in the fact that we didn’t want to change the name," Lauren Jauregui told MTV News on Wednesday. "Fifth Harmony is the name we grew up with and we worked for and it’s our brand," she added. "It’s who we are. It’s our entire moments. It’s what we spent five years on." As for whether the band considered replacing Cabello, Dinah Jane said they already have. "The fans named us Fifth Harmony, and now they're the fifth member," she explained.
