Drake's Mom Gave him Production Advice

This is great. The guy who produced Drake's song with Jay Z - "Talk Up" - said that the reason it happened is because of Drake's mom. The producer lives near Drake's mom, and they ran into one another in the neighborhood, and Drake's mom went back and talked to Drake about how they should work together, and so Drake reached out to him via Instagram. LOL. He's SUCH a good mama's boy and I love it. 


Amy Schumer is NOT Pregnant 

Amy Schumer had to clarify an instagram post yesterday and let her fans know that she is not pregnant. She posted a picture of herself wearing a dress and her hands were holding a piece of the dress' fabric, but it looked like her hands were cradling her belly.
