Lauryn Hill, Grammys 1999 (The Drop FM)
When Lauryn Hill’s album “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill” was released in 1998, it instantly became #1 on the Billboard 200 chart, and set a record for “first-week sales by a female artist.”
Hill won Album of the Year for “Miseducation” at the 1999 Grammy Awards. The album also won four other awards; it had been nominated for 10 Grammys. Hill set another record that night both with her number of wins and nominations.
Hill was the last black woman to win the Grammy for Album of the Year.

Single births are so 2016. This year, it’s all about the multiples. (Births, duh.)
Seriously, this year has started off with a bang regarding celebrity birth announcements. First up, superstar/icon/QUEEN Beyonce announced that she’s pregnant with twins in an Instagram post that dropped February 1st. Naturally, the world went crazy (and that Instagram post is now the most-liked post ever). Beyonce also released photos from her pregnancy photoshoot, and later performed at the Grammys in a tribute to motherhood. As you do.
Not even two weeks later, it was confirmed that Amal Clooney (you know, George’s wife) is expecting twins. And the twins will be a boy and a girl.
There’s another couple that might be expecting twins. It’s confirmed that “The Walking Dead” actor Steven Yeun and his wife Joana Pak are expecting a child. One of Yeun’s recent Instagram posts was a series of photos of he and his pregnant wife, of which one photo features him holding up two fingers. The photo’s caption is two bee emoji.
So either they’ll also be welcoming twins this year, or Yeun is part of the Beyhive. I don’t know. We’ll find out.
It’s crazy that all these celebrities are having twins right now. No idea if any of them are through IVF and don’t want to speculate, but it’s interesting how all the pregnancies are syncing up.
Kim Kardashian’s latex dresses (E! Online)
Kim Kardashian always knows how to leave an impression. In 2014, Kardashian attended a couple of events wearing dresses made from latex. You wouldn’t normally think of latex as eveningwear material, but Kardashian pulled it off – twice. She attended the Australian launch of her fragrance while wearing the pink dress, and her husband Kanye West’s concert while wearing the black version.
Both dresses were designed by Atsuko Kudo, who specializes in “couture latex design.”
