Is It Time For Kim Kardashian To Let Go Of The Pencil Skirts During Pregnancy? [Photos]

Is it time for Kim Kardashian to let go of her tight fitted pencil skirts and dresses during her pregnancy? Recently in the news & all over the blogosphere Kim was criticized for gaining wait. I don't think it's the weight maybe it Kim squeezing into those fitted skirts and dresses that's giving the illusion that she is over her pregnancy weight.

I also noticed Kim looks more sad in her pregnancy photos when the paparazzi is around, generally Kim is up beat and camera ready. Check out the photos and tell us what you think. Follow Kim Kardashian"s pregnancy on our sister blog

Love & Hip Hop New York Ep 11 Recap [Video]

Last night's episode of Love & Hip Hop New York was quite interesting with two seperate love triangles. The first love triangle is between Joe Budden, Tahiry, & Kaylin and is no surprise to us. Throughout this season of LHHNY we see that Joey is still in love with Tahiry and he never tries to break ties with Tahiry despite all the drama that goes on between the two.
Joe has it bad for Tahiry. We even saw him shed a tear in last night's episode and crazy enough he wants to have his cake and eat it too with his current girlfriend Kaylin Garcia. 

Well, it's a good thing that Tahiry is holding her ground and reminds Joe that he's the one that hurt her during their relationship. I can't wait to see how things pan out with these two. As for  Kaylin she must be a ride or die chick for Joe, and we get it Kaylin seems like she is depending on Joe because he "saved" her from her homeless situation and gave her everything she needs in life including love. We hope Kaylin realizes that Joe is in love in Tahiry and moves on with her life on the other hand we're happy to see that Joe is making her aware of what he is doing instead of leading her on. It's just crazy that she is accepting whatever Joe throws at her.

Meet Adde Instrumental Sweden's Dancehall Secret [Video]

Andreas Nilson (Adde Instrumentals)

Whether you’re in Jamaica, Canada or Japan, when the piano chords of Vybz Kartel’s “Summertime” chime in, it tingles your warmth senses and immediately transports the listeners into party mode. One would never expect that the catchy Dancehall anthem, recorded by one of Jamaica’s premiere artist, was birthed from a studio in Sweden, over 5000 miles away.

As one of the biggest hits in 2011, along with Popcaan’s “Ravin”, the “Summertime” Riddim, infectiously entered the party season, dominating charts local and internationally as well as receiving a nomination at the 2011 Soul Train Awards for “Best Caribbean Performance”. In Jamaica alone, “Summertime” and “Ravin” saw accolades from Youth View Awards, Jamaica Star, and Jamaica Observer.

All this popularity and yet, the producer, remains an enigma, a foreigner to the shores of Jamaica, but an architect in riddim creation.

His name is Andreas Nilson, and he is the force behind Adde Instrumentals. Composing such riddims as Summer Wave, Corner Shop (with JR Blender), BBQ, Happy Daze, Sweet Sounds (with So Shifty), building riddims for singles like Vybz Kartel's "Bike Back" "Bubble Hard" and Mr. Vegas "God On My Side", Adde Instrumentals has contributed gingerly to the sound of Dancehall within the last few years.

From childhood, Adde was destined for music, receiving his first piece of equipment (a synth/sampler) at the age of seven. By highschool, Adde was producing tracks and deejaying receiving his Audio Engineering Diploma in 2005.

Influenced by many genres of music, Adde's early productions range from RnB and Hip Hop to Pop and House, with a passion for Dancehall always present. As his strengths in production grew, so did the diversity of his creations. While parring with a few local Dancehall acts, Adde began his dance with riddim production, and it instantly grew into success.

Those first dancehall riddims later became the backdrops for Vybz Kartel's "Bike Back" and "Open Up", although it was instant connection for Kartel lyrics and Adde's instrumentals, the process didn't go so smoothly. Adde explains, "With all the scamming going on, when I received my first contact from Vybz Kartel, I thought it was a joke. He even sent me a rough demo of "Bike Back" but the vocals were so distorted I STILL thought it was a joke. It wasn't until Kartel sent me a video message to prove it was him. After that, well you listen to the results!!!"

Having "Summertime" become such a huge success, Adde Instrumentals has been working feverishly to keep up with the fast pace of Dancehall. Currently composing the "Bad Gal" riddim for Hapilos Productions with such talent as Chino, Di Genius, Demarco, RDX and Stylo G, Adde Instrumentals has a busy year planned for 2013, as he conquers infusing authentic sounds into a foreign land.
