It's been a while since we've seen baby North West. And her mother revealed brand new pics of the 7 month old on the "Ellen" show. Check out how much she's grown inside...
Today on a pre-taped "Ellen", Kanye West's fiance Kim K. is showing off new photos including their baby girl and Kanye--who's currently at Men's fashion week in Paris--in a sweet non-aggressive daddy mode. I.E., a double whammy of damage control and promo for the upcoming season of "KUWTK".
But at least we get to see how the adorable cutie has grown since the last time we saw her:
Little Nori still looks like the perfect mix of her mom and dad. And she's clearly daddy's little girl.
Check out what Kim had to say about she and Kanye having more kids...

First Lady Michelle Obama celebrates her 50th birthday today. Revisit some of her most stylish looks inside....
Today is the 50th birthday of First Lady Michelle Obama, and she tells PARADE Magazine, "I have never felt more confident in myself, more clear on who I am as a woman.”
The fabulously fit Mom-in-Chief, who is currently whipping the country into shape with her Let's Move campaign, credits her overall health and well-being to exercise and eating healthy food. (And it doesn't hurt that she wakes up to a sexy Presidential husband every morning either.) She tells PEOPLE,
For now, Mrs. O is all natural. But she hasn't ruled out Botox or plastic surgery (in the future). "Right now, I don't imagine that I would go that route, but I've also learned to never say never. Women should have the freedom to do whatever they need to do to feel good about themselves."
We don't think she'll ever need either of those things!
Celebrate The First Lady's birthday in our gallery below.....

Tonight at the 2014 Critics' Choice Awards, the beautiful people hit the red carpet for yet another of the Oscars' predecessors. And we've got the fabulous YBF folks who made appearances inside...
With skin that makes you want to go spend the day exfoliating and praying to the gods for the same chocolately perfection, Lupita Nyong'o made yet another stunning appearance at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California tonight.
Before she won the Best Supporting Actress Award for 12 Years A Slave, Lupita hit the red carpet in a stark white silk crepe Calvin Klein Collection gown with sexy cutouts to show off her perfectly fit bod. And she topped off the look with Paul Andrew custom shoes and Kimberly McDonald jewelry.
Nia Long looked amazing in a sexy black curve hugging Jovani gown with mesh cutouts and paired with a bold red lip. She was on hand to present an award.
Yes Lady O!
Oprah showed off a slim, trim & snatched waist in this green knit Azzedine Alaia gown and Lorraine Schwartz jewels for the occasion. And she was on hand to present the Humanitarian award to her The Butler co-star Forest Whitaker.
"The Talk" co-host Aisha Tyler served as the host of the evening. And she was her usual hilarious self keeping the audience entertained.

Haunted House 2 star Marlon Wayans and Blue Caprice star Isaiah Washington (with his wife) were on hand to present.
And Oscar nominee Barkhad Abdi was there as a nominee for Captain Phillips.

Well, this is interesting. If it's true. check out how LeBron James MAY have gotten put on blast for some shady activities with another woman....
When LeBron James and the Miami Heat trolled to the White House this past Tuesday to receive a notable congratulations from President Obama being the 2013 National Champs to honor, his wife Savannah James was notably missing from the pictures with all the WAGS.
While it's still unclear if she actually attended (we need the receipts), we do know that NBC Correspondent Stacey Klein allegedly posted teh above message to her Facebook wall.
She said, according to the FaceBook post captured and posted to IB Times, that while LeBron and co. were in attendance at the White House to hand Prez O his own 44 Heat jersey, she also saw LeBron asking some chick for her number.
Interestingly, when we go to her actual Instagram pic (where this Facebook post was taken from), the caption on the same pic simply says:
We reached out to Stacey to see if someone pulled a major photoshop job on that FB post....or if she deleted her original pic & caption because she realized that she stirred up some ish by (rightfully?) snitching.
We've yet to hear back, but where there's smoke....
We have heard numerous "LeBron cheating rumors" in the past. But this one, coming from a legit NBC Universal Correspondent, may just hold some water, unfortunately. Hmm...
LeBron & Savannah spent NYE together and the Heat champ gushed:
Savannah has remained mum about the rumor, as usual, and Bron is currently in Philly gearing up to play the 76ers tomorrow night.

Tatyana Ali wants the world to know she's know longer that innocent sweet little Ashley Banks we've known her to be. The freshest princess of Bel Air (but based on this new music....she doesn't want to be called that again) is back at her singing career.
And TheYBF.com has the very first look at her artsy "Hello" short film which gives us a peek into her new album...
When she's not starring on "Young & the Restless" or BET's "Second Generation Wayans", 34-year-old Tatyana Ali is working on her music. It's been over 15 years since her "Boy You Knock Me Out" singing days! Who knew?!
But now, she's more mature, has some real ish to sing about, and she's not here for your usual boring questions about her past.
In her brand new short film, set to some of her new music, the fab chick showed off her artistic video edge with the visuals. She says in the vid:
She explained how every seven years humans become different people:
Who is she now exactly? Guess we'll find out when her new album drops. Peep the "Hello" short film below and what Tatyana has to say about her new work:
You can also check out Tatyana and her new music starting January 21st when she's the featured artist on Spotify.

He may have been too "injured" to finish out the Redskins' season, but NFL QB Robert Griffin III was well enough to frolic on the beaches of Hawaii with his wife Becky yesterday.
Check the pics inside...plus the latest drama with Houston Texans star Arian Foster and his pregnant mistress....
Redskins QB RGIII brought his wife Becky to Hawaii for a little post-season vacay. The twosome were spotted boogie boarding and hitting the waves...until chick's bikini top fell off.
And even on vacay, RGIII can stir up some damn controversy. After his much talked about season that ended with now fired Coach Shanahan not even playing his starting QB toward the end, Robert took to his FB page a few days ago to defend himself to a commenter. And plenty of people had something to say about it:
In other controversial sports news...
Texans Runningback Arian Foster (seen above with his wife (on left) at an NBA game) is still in hot water as his pregnant mistress makes her media rounds.
Brittany Norwood, a Univeristy of Houston college student, is hitting up local news shows and anyone else who will listen. She's letting the world know Arian Foster allegedly tried to "make her" have an abortion once she informed him she was pregnant with his baby.
Brittany, who's 20, is 17 weeks along, and is now suing the 27-year football star. It's unclear why--since asking a woman to get an abortion isn't necessarily as illegal as it is demanding and controversial.
It seems the college girl, who knowingly slept with the married baller, is trying to garner sympathy from folks. And also trying to garner some cash. Her lawyer told KHOU-TV that Arian's settlement offer is on the way. No one has mentioned if this "settlement" is related to child support.
Brittany told media they took DNA tests which proved Arian's the father:
And after she sold pics of herself with Arian to gossip sites (messy as hell), she gave the media their text messages. One read:
Apparently, the two started messing around when she would "hang out with him" (her words) while he stayed at Hotel ZaZa during training camp last summer:

And now that she's a single lady and set to appear in her new bestie K.Michelle's upcoming solo reality show, it looks like she wants a new look for the new era of her life.
DO WE LOVE IT?!
