Latinas Showed Up At The Billboard Women In Music Awards And Shined The Brightest

Selena Gomez recieved the Billboard Woman of the Year award at the Billboard Women in Music event last night. While she might have won one of the most coveted awards of the night, she wasn’t the only Latina to shine. One of the biggest nights for women in music drew in some of the hottest Latina musicians and they definitely represented.

Camila Cabello took home the award for Breakthrough Artist.

“I’d just like to say, the only reason that I’m standing here on this stage, in this auditorium, and on this soil and in this country is because of one woman, and that’s my mom,” Cabello said in her acceptance speech. “Tonight, we’re celebrating women of this year and I want to take this opportunity to say thank you to the woman of my life.”

Cabello then shared how her mother made the journey from Cuba to the U.S. for a better life. Cabello told the crowd that her mother, like many Cuban immigrants, made their way off the island with just the clothes on their back and a dream of a better future. The entirety of Cabello’s speech is simply her thanking her mother for making the ultimate sacrifices to give her the life she enjoys today.

Cabello also performed a stripped down version of “Havana” that you just have to hear.

Kehlani proudly took home the Rule Breaker award.

“Being acknowledged for breaking rules in a positive light, is so important to me because my entire career I’ve been very outspoken,” Kehlani told the crowd. “Whether it be something that goes on in politics or something that goes on socially, I just have to speak up. It hits me in the gut.”

And her performance of “Honey” is so spellbinding.

She gave queer women of color a rare moment of visibility with her song. Now, that is def something that should be honored.

And finally, Francia Raisa and Selena Gomez showed everyone what true friendship looks like.

“We’ve shared every high, every low, every success, and every failure together,” Raisa said while introducing Gomez. “Our Latina sisterhood has connected us professionally and personally. She is my biggest champion and best cheerleader and I hers.”

Kehlani Welcomes Baby Girl After “Hard But Powerful” Unmedicated Home Birth

R&B star Kehlani is a mommy. The singer welcomed her first child, baby girl Adeya, over the weekend.

In an Instagram post on Monday, Lani disclosed that she had an unmedicated home birth, describing the experience as both strenuous and beautiful.

“This weekend our angel arrived healthy & perfect in every way in our bathroom at home,” the 23-year-old crooner captioned a photo of a baby blanket with colorful pine trees. “Unmedicated home birth was the absolute hardest yet most powerful thing I’ve ever done. Thankful beyond words. In love beyond comparison.”

Lani, who had her first baby with guitarist Javie Young-White, talked more about her decision to have a home birth on Twitter.

“All birth is extremely hard and transformative,” she said. “Home birth is a medical decision as is hospital birth, all birth is mind blowing & powerful. … it’s a next level journey whichever way.”

While emphasizing the splendor and power of childbirth, she didn’t deny the physical pain that accompanies it.

“But I hope everyone knows no one can tell me SHIT after that because LORD…next level, no words!”

Lani said she wouldn’t be posting on social media much in order to rest and spend time with her new family but sent her gratitude to her fans for their love, support and well wishes.

Days before the birth of her child, Lani released the music video for “Butterfly,” which appears on the singer’s While We Wait mixtape that dropped last month.

Video Dug Up From Cardi B’s Past Shows Her Saying She Used To Drug And Rob Men

Stay grateful you did not grow up in the era of Snapchat/ Instagram/ Facebook kids because you can delete but your recorded actions can still come back to bite. Cardi B knows the story. While the Afro-Latina queen of Trap isn’ making any apologies, the latest video to be dug up from her past is requiring her to give some answers.

Video of the singer, recalling a time in her life in which she felt forced to drug and rob men while seducing them has resurfaced.

Over the weekend, video of the “Money” rapper recalling how she used to drug and rob men resurfaced.

The video, which was recorded during an Instagram live broadcast, sees Cardi as she goes on a tearful verbal tirade about her past. This after, someone apparently questioned her success and accused her of not “putting in no fucking work.”

“I had to go ‘oh yeah, you wanna fuck me? Yeah yeah yeah let’s go to this hotel.’ And then I’d drug [expletivie] up and I’d rob them. That’s what I used to do.”

Users online were quick to comment.

“The fact that cardi b admitted to drugging and robbing men she would take back to a hotel for sex blows my mind,” wrote Twitter user @itsangelaa. “That’s not ‘keeping it real.’ that’s a crime.”

“I wonder what woulda happened if it were the other way round,” @BTSisthecauseo5 commented.

At the onset of the backlash, the rapper seemed to take the comments rather lightly.

The following day she also tweeted “IM THAT BITCH THEY LOVE TO HATE, IM THAT BITCH THEY HATE TO LOVE and I love it.”

On Tuesday, however, after users on Instagram and Twitter continued to simmer, she was forced to issue comment.
