One Hot Mama

Singer and style icon M.I.A. has done it yet again with her unique fashion sense.  Despite being nine months pregnant and ready to burst, M.I.A. kept her swagger while on stage alongside, Jay-Z, T.I., Lil Wayne and Kanye West at this years Grammy awards.  Between Kanye's ego and M.I.A.'s bump I was surprised there was enough room on the stage for everyone else.    I bet pregnant women across America are trying to figure out which maternity store ...

It's true, Humbert Humbert's be walking among us. I have been doing a bit of research on women's issues in the Middle East and upon doing so came across this story of an 8 year old girl being married off to a 47 year old man in Saudi Arabia. Part of me wants to believe it cannot be true. Part of me knows that this totally happens. I guess father's are marrying off their daughters under the ages of 15 to pay off debts and there is little to nothing that mother's ... Read More
