Jennifer Lopez Covers Glamour Mag December Issue

Jennifer Lopez looks glamorous indeed on the December issue of Glamour magazine. The recently separated singer talks dating, and what she’s learned about love and relationships. Here what she had to say.

On what she’s learned about love and relationships:
“I think I’ve finally learned the biggest lesson of all. You’ve got to love yourself first. You’ve got to be OK on your own before you can be OK with somebody else. You’ve got to value yourself and know that you’re worth everything. And until you value yourself enough and love yourself enough to know that, you can’t really have a healthy relationship.”

Comedian Patrice O’Neal Suffers Stroke

In some unfortunate news, comedian Patrice O’Neal suffered a stroke last Wednesday, Oct. 19th.

The 41 year old, who is best known for his roast of actor Charlie Sheen, is in critical condition and it is unclear whether he’ll make a full recovery.

News of the comedian’s stroke broke when fellow comedian Jim Norton spoke of the incident on his satellite radio show, the ‘Opie and Anthony Show’.

“We don’t know how he is. We don’t know how he’s going to be,” said Norton. “I didn’t want to do this by myself. I wish we had more news for you.”

Norton added that he made the announcement on air because “we wanted it to come from us.”

Beyonce Expecting A Baby Girl

According to In Touch Weekly, The singer has learned she’s expecting a baby girl.

Beyoncé is thrilled she’s having a daughter,” confides a close friend of the singer’s, explaining that while Beyoncé and her husband, Jay-Z, would be happy to have a healthy child of either sex, she’d secretly been hoping for a girl. “She and her mother are so close, and she’s wanted to have that relationship with her own child.”

I wonder who this “close friend” could be? Hmmm… this sounds suspicious, and I’m not so sure how credible this story is. After all, this is the same people who reported Will and Jada were separating. But if she is, congrats Mama Bey.

Forbes: 10 Worst Stereotypes About Powerful Women

This isn’t the first time we’ve heard the plight many successful women face while trying to conquer the world. But in a recent article, Forbes Women are tackling the sensitive topic once more. This time, they’ve named the top 10 worst stereotypes these women are plagued with each day. I found this interesting, perhaps, you will too.

No. 1: Ice Queen

Halley Bock, CEO of leadership and development training company Fierce, notes that the ruthless “ice queen” stereotype is rampant. Cultural depictions, like frigid magazine editor Miranda Priestly in The Devil Wears Prada (and her real-world counterpart Anna Wintour of Vogue) and back-stabbing boss Patty Hewes on Damages, paint successful women as unsympathetic power-mongers. It is, of course, a Catch-22. “A woman who shows emotion in the workplace is often cast as too fragile or unstable to lead,” Bock said. “A woman who shows no emotion and keeps it hyper-professional is icy and unfeminine. For many women, it can be a no-win situation.”

No. 2: Single and Lonely

Harvard lecturer Olivia Fox Cabane notes that the strong perception that powerful women are intimidating to men and will need to sacrifice their personal lives may stop women from going after power. Even those women who aren’t interested in marrying, face harsh judgments. Men get to be “bachelors” while women are reduced to “spinsters” and “old-maids.” In fact, when Janet Napolitano was nominated Secretary of Homeland Security, critics said her being single would allow her to “spend more time on the job.”

No. 3: Tough

The first female Executive Editor of The New York Times, Jill Abramson is anything but stereotypical. She had a hard-charging career as an investigative reporter at The Wall Street Journal and edited her way to the top of the Times masthead. She’s also a true-blood New Yorker and is writing a book about puppies. Despite her complexities, she must contend with being called “tough” and “brusque,” making the “she’s-tough stereotype” her least favorite. Said Abramson: “As an investigative reporter, I had tough standards and a formidable way of framing and reporting stories, but I don’t think of myself as a tough person.”

Amy Winehouse Cause of Death Revealed

It took 3 months, but Amy Winehouse‘s offiicial cause of death has finally been revealed.

The singer apparently died from “alcohol toxicity”. Winehouse, a self declared alcoholic, consumed fives times the legal limit according to the coroner’s office. They declared her death a “death by misadventure”.

Winehouse was an “intelligent, determined young woman who, at times, was able to successful abstain from alcohol,” the coroner added while making the announcement.

Amy’s parents Mitch and Janis were present for the reading in a London court today. They issued this statement soon after the news of Amy’s death was announced.

“It is some relief to finally find out what happened to Amy. We understand there was alcohol in her system when she passed away; it is likely a build up of alcohol in her system over a number of days. The court heard that Amy was battling hard to conquer her problems with alcohol and it is a source of great pain to us that she could not win in time.”

How unfortunate. R.I.P Amy.
