Last night, Rihanna capped off New York Fashion Week in spectacular fashion: with a beautifully diverse Savage x Fenty runway show complete with dancing, an elaborately decorated stage, and plenty of lingerie. Along with women of all shapes and sizes, she cast two pregnant models—including, of course, one of her muses, Slick Woods.
Now, TMZ reports that Woods went into labor backstage after the show before being taken to a hospital. Woods has already revealed that she and Adonis Bosso have named their child Saphir after September’s birthstone, sapphire. It’s safe to say her child will have serious bragging rights when it comes to his birth story—who else participated in an iconic Rihanna show right before being born?
Of course, Woods isn’t the first model to walk the runway while pregnant. Scroll down to revisit some of our favorite pregnant models on the runway.
Eminem has Machine Gun Kelly in his cross hairs.
After MGK dropped a nearly five-minute diss track of the self-proclaimed “Rap God” titled “Rap Devil,” Em made sure he got the last word in during an in-depth discussion of his surprise album, Kamikaze.
Before we get to his expletive-filled rant about the younger rapper, here’s a quick recap of their beef: It ostensibly started six years ago when MGK tweeted that Eminem’s daughter, Hailie, is “hot as fuck.”
MGK has stated that those three words lead to him being blackballed by figures in the music industry. They also inspired lyrics to the Kamikaze song “Not Alike,” in which Eminem dares Kelly to make more comments about Hailie.
In turn, MGK released his aforementioned diss track and wrote “FUCK RAP GOD IM THE RAP DEVIL” in all of his bios on social media.
Now Eminem has broken his silence on “Rap Devil” by unloading on the rival artist.
“It never hit my radar and then one day, you know, you go down the fucking wormhole of YouTube or whatever right, so I see ‘Machine Gun Kelly talks about Eminem’s daughter’ whatever right, ” Eminem explained to Sway Calloway in the new interview segment.
“So, I’m like ‘what the fuck?’ I click on it…he starts doing a press run basically about Hailie. I’m like ‘what the fuck? Yo, my man better chill.'”
He went on to say that the comment about Hailie wasn’t what sparked their battle and that he “doesn’t give a fuck about [MGK’s] career.
“The reason I dissed him is actually a lot more petty than that. The reason that I dissed him is because he got on—first what he said ‘I’m the greatest rapper alive since my favorite rapper banned me from Shade 45’ or whatever he said, right? Like I’m trying to hinder his career,” Eminem said.
“I don’t give a fuck about your career. You think I actually fucking think about you? You know how many fucking rappers are better than you? You’re not even in the fucking conversation.”
Em didn’t stop there. “Now, I’m in this fucking weird thing because I’m like I have to answer this motherfucker and every time I do that, it makes that person,” he said.
“As irrelevant as people say I am in hip hop, I make them bigger by getting into this thing where I’m like I want to destroy him, but I also don’t want to make him bigger because now you’re a fucking enemy. I’ll leave it at that.”
We have a feeling that the MGK-Eminem beef is far from finished.

A lot of shirts and sweatshirts out there have some pretty questionable phrases printed on them, but online fashion retailer Revolve is catching all kinds of hell right now for selling a sweatshirt that is…not very well thought out.
The sweatshirt in question, from the brand LPA, reads: “Being fat is not beautiful — It’s an excuse,” and under the quote, says: “as said to @palomija,” referencing a comment left on plus-size model Paloma Elsesser’s Instagram.
Twitter has a lot of feelings about the $168 garment, as well as the model wearing it:
Florence Given, a London-based artist, got in touch with LPA about the sweatshirts and posted the conversation on Instagram:
Apparently, the point of the shirt was to collaborate with celebrities to shed light on how hurtful internet trolls can be and donate all proceeds to charity, but instead, the end result came out screaming a very different message.
The other designs were to feature similar quotes from Emily Ratajkowski, Lena Dunham — “Horrible Result of Modern Feminism,” Suki Waterhouse — “If you translated a bum onto her face, she’d have a better face,” and Cara Delevingne — “Too boney to be boned.”
However, as a result of the backlash, Dunham took to Instagram to announce that she wasn’t going to be involved in the collaboration anymore. She explained:
“I cannot support this collaboration or lend my name to it in any way. I am deeply disappointed in @revolve’s handling of a sensitive topic and a collaboration rooted in reclaiming the words of internet trolls to celebrate the beauty in diversity and bodies and experiences that aren’t the industry norm.”
Revolve told Yahoo Lifestyle the sweatshirts were intended “as a direct commentary on the modern day ‘normality’ of cyber-bullying and the shared desire to create a community for those most affected by the epidemic.
“We at Revolve sincerely apologize to all those involved – particularly Lena, Emily, Cara, Suki and Paloma – our loyal customers, and the community as a whole for this error,” they added. “The collection has been pulled. We are proud to donate $20,000 to ‘Girls Write Now’ in the hopes that those who need it can still benefit from what was to be a meaningful, insightful and impactful collaboration by LPA.”
