One Hot Mama

BY Team Intern in General

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 sells sweet frocks like this, but I doubt you can pick this up at your local mall's, 'A Pea in the Pod' shop.  M.I.A.

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 or young girls can do about it. Gross. Read More
  I've been totally on the fence about this octuplet thing since it started dominating the news.
