Celebrity News

Lori Harvey and Michael B. Jordan are one of the hottest celebrity couples out right now. After making it Instagram official in January, fans have been watching the couple's every move on and off social media and have been fascinated by how the once eligible bachelorette and bachelor's relationship came to be.


Fans were also curious about their nicknames for each other. In celebration of her birthday, Lori posted a series of glamorous shots of herself on January 13, to which Michael commented, "Gimmie!! 🤤🤤 Sheeesh!! Happy Birthday Turtle!!" The model responded, "thank you nugget 👅."

Lori sat down with Access Daily and finally opened up about the meaning behind her nickname "Turtle," and it's something that women everywhere can relate to.

"Honestly because he says I take so long to get ready. Like I move on turtle time. So he's like, 'OK, Turtle. All right, let's go.' It just stuck."

While the 24-year-old didn't give the meaning behind her nickname for Michael, she did say how they met, which was through mutual friends.

She also said that he has been her guinea pig while developing her new skincare line SKN by Lori Harvey.

Lori announced on Instagram that her skincare line was dropping on October 22 and of course her "nugget" gave his full support. The People's Sexiest Man Alive commented under the announcement, "World's about to find out! Beyond proud of you. ✨✨✨✨"

He was also front and center at her launch party over the weekend and gave the most adorable speech.

"'I'm extremely, extremely proud of you. From the time I met you--having a vision, having a goal, sticking to your guns, not being distracted by opinions, views, and perspectives...you had something you saw in your mind and you did it and everybody's here to support you."

"The people that love you and the people that care about you, the people that really matter...they're proud of you. I'm proud of you and your parents are extremely proud of you. There's no place I'd rather be," he said right before the couple embraced with a kiss.

*Swoons*

The couple first made headlines in November after they were photographed together exiting off of a plane and since making it Instagram official in January, they still have been low-key about their relationship, which is not too surprising since Michael has been very private about his love life and Lori is his first known girlfriend.

Gabrielle Union is not here for the label stepparent. While she became a stepparent after marrying Dwyane Wade in 2014, that doesn't mean that she wants to be defined by it. The actress spoke about the dislike of that term during her appearance on Glennon Doyle's "We Can Do Hard Things" podcast.

It was actually pretty close to this time last year when I penned the piece "How To Get Through The Holidays If You Don't Observe Them". Unlike some of the other articles that I write for the site, I pulled that one from very personal experience. Being that my personality is very wired to "be good" on something once I know its origin, holidays are something that I tend to take a pass on; this includes Thanksgiving (some insightful reads on its origin are found here, here and here). Still, this doesn't mean I'm not aware of the fact that many people use this time of year to reflect on their blessings and to say "thanks" for all the good that has come their way. Since I like to write on relationships a lot, I thought to myself, "Why not come up with ways for people to show gratitude to their significant other?"

I didn't want to say that I was having bad luck. That's not something I'd ever want to speak into existence over my life. But I will say something wasn't right. I had a few coins stacked in my purse from a one-time project as well as from an ongoing one. Then I received emails from not one but two publications within days apart asking me if I'd like to contribute a few articles every week. Opportunities and money were flowing in. If you follow the law of attraction, you'd say I was vibrating on a high frequency.

Tinashe has learned a lot about her mental health while growing up in the entertainment industry. The singer/songwriter began dancing at four years old and had her first movie role at five years old.

My favorite time of the year is the start of the official boot season which begins during the transitional period between summer and fall. What's most exciting about the sudden drop in temperatures is stepping back into those sleek pair of boots for the first time in months. Whether zipping up oldies but goodies or investing in a new fall 2021 boot trend, this year is all about the calf boot. Specifically, this is the best option when easing your summer clothes into the appropriate fall looks.
