Justin Bieber is engaged ?????
It’s true. Justin Bieber is engaged to model Hailey Baldwin, and 12-year-old me is sobbing uncontrollably while watching “One Less Lonely Girl” on repeat.
TMZ was the first to report the story, sharing that the Biebs popped the question while the two were on vacation in the Bahamas together. Security went around to tell everyone to put their phones away because something “special” was about to happen, and then he got on one knee.
The pair first met in 2011 at Bieber’s New York premiere of his biopic “Never Say Never.” Since then they have stayed friends and dated on and off. Bieber was previously linked with Selena Gomez, and Baldwin was rumored to be dating Shawn Mendes after they attended the Met Gala together.
But alas, Bieber and Baldwin got back together a few weeks ago and have broken every Belieber’s dreams.
Bieber confirmed his engagement with a lengthy Instagram post telling the world how much he adores her.
“Was gonna wait a while to say anything but word travels fast, listen plain and simple Hailey I am soooo in love with everything about you!” the pop star wrote alongside a black and white picture of the couple.
Bieber wrote that he vows “to lead our family with honor and integrity letting Jesus through his Holy Spirit guide us in everything we do and every decision we make.
“My heart is COMPLETELY and FULLY YOURS and I will ALWAYS put you first!” Bieber wrote. “You are the love of my life Hailey Baldwin and I wouldn’t want to spend it with anybody else.”
This is too much y’all.
Baldwin tweeted her excitement shortly after Bieber posted.
“Not sure what I did in life to deserve such happiness but I am so utterly grateful to God for giving me such an incredible person to share my life with! No words could ever express my gratitude,” she wrote alongside a heart emoji.
Well, I guess I’ll never meet him at a meet and greet and pretend to be too cool and have him fall in love with me because I was ~so down to Earth~.
Cardi B had her baby!
On Wednesday, Cardi B announced in an Instagram post that she had given birth to a baby girl on Tuesday.
“Kulture Kiari Cephus 07/10/18 @offset,” the caption read on a photo showing the rapper nude and very pregnant. She is, of course, still slaying the game.
This is Cardi B’s first child with husband Offset, whose legal name is Kiari Kendrell Cephus. Cardi B kept her pregnancy under wraps before going public in April during an appearance as the musical guest on “Saturday Night Live.”
She and her husband, a member of hip hop trio Migos, have actually proved to be pretty adept at keeping secrets. Cardi B recently revealed that the couple secretly married last September at their home in Atlanta. You can read more about that drama here.
Offset does have other children from previous relationships, but this is his and Cardi B’s first.
Twitter had plenty to say (as always) about the unusual name of their baby.
“cardi b and offset just named their daughter kulture which is cool and all I just feel like it’s going to konfuse some people,” tweeted @Ryanabe.
@BritniDWrites explained to all of us why they couldn’t give her a normal name.
“Lissen, Cardi B’s name is Belcalis Marlenis Almanza and Offset’s name is Kiari Kendrell Cephus, they couldn’t just name their baby Jennifer. I’m here for extra spicy, Hogwarts spell-ass names. Welcome to the world, Kulture!”
I think it’s kinda, cute so that’s just my two cents. Either way, I can’t wait to watch this child grow up with two parents that are as animated as Cardi B and Offset.
Kylie Jenner self-made?
Forbes just announced that Kylie Jenner would be gracing the cover of their August issue. The reason she made the famous magazine is because her net worth is nearing a billion dollars. Yes that’s right $1,000,000,000.
With her Kylie Cosmetics line and her reality TV status at only 21, she is closing in on being a billionaire.
Many people are calling out Forbes for framing Jenner as a “self-made billionaire” despite the fact that she comes from one of the most famous families in the world and already had a ton of money to her name before she started her empire.
Twitter had a lot of feelings about applying this label to her.
“Calling Kylie Jenner a ‘self-made billionaire is like claiming you made soup from scratch because you opened the can and reheated it,” wrote Twitter user @PedestrianPoet.
The best part by far is when Dictionary.com saw the ruckus and decided to settle the argument by revealing the true definition of “self-made.”
“Self-made means having succeeded in life unaided. Used in a sentence: Forbes says that Kylie Jenner is a self-made woman,” they tweeted.
People were, of course, laughing at the forest of shade they threw at Jenner.
“Damn, dictionary.com is pulling no punches in 2018,” tweeted @JenniferMascia.
Another user, @KarisaMaxwell, wrote, “Dictionary, show me the definition of ‘Savage’.”
Dictionary took the opportunity for publicity and tweeted again and revealed that the searches for “self-made” had increased “18,628%” since the news. Then they retweeted an article about them throwing shade.
2018 really is something.
That’s the end of the tea for the week- come back next week for more. Ttyl.
