I don’t know what you’ve been up to lately, but Nicki Minaj has spent the last couple of years just low-key helping develop a hamlet in India.

According to an Instagram post, Minaj sent money for the community to develop a computer center, tailoring institute, reading program and two water wells.

The news was casually posted to Minaj’s Instagram just a couple weeks after she promised to pay the student loans and college tuition of several fans on Twitter. She also intends to start a charity to pay off even more. Good on her.

A near-t0-bursting Beyoncé hosted a baby shower this weekend, which she presided over while wearing a flowing skirt, bikini top and a belly covered in henna tattoos. Somehow she’s not expected to give birth for another two weeks!? Hope those twins are enjoying their roomy digs while they’ve got them, since their parents can’t seem to find a place to live on their budget.

The event, dubbed the Carter Push Party, was attended by former Destiny’s Child members Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams, as well as Lala Anthony, Serena Williams and her mom Tina.

ABC producers are a teeeeeensy bit worried Cher’s gonna drop a Donald Trump-related F-bomb at the Billboard Music Awards tonight. They have reason to be afraid! From TMZ:

Here’s the dilemma ... producers at Dick Clark Productions don’t want to cut Cher’s mic, because it will look like censorship and possibly even a pro-Trump move. It could also piss off the anti-Trump audience.

The flip side ... if Cher unleashes her considerable vocabulary of forbidden words, ABC could be in hot water with the FCC and then take it out on DCP.

The hope of catching some prime-time cussing is the whole reason most viewers watch in the first place, and Cher’s definitely called Trump “a fucking idiot” in front of an audience before. This is her first performance in 15 years, so hopefully she won’t let a gaggle of terrified PA’s talk her out of having a good time.
