      I said the same. I haven’t been seeing any marijuana pics lately either ! For a while actually. She gaining weight. Either she not working out or someone got a bun.

  14. Girl November 30, 2016

    Everything she does is a success ?So proud of her

    • tikklzzz November 30, 2016

      She is so influential!

  15. Rihboy November 30, 2016

    She’s a mogul now. She doesn’t need roc nation nor title! She can slander them all and still keep her star power. However I like how she’s channeling the negative in a different route. While the hive her focused on anti crossing over a mark it already did; the navy are celebrating her almost weekly achievements. Not paid for time magazine slots! For a song and album that was swept under two weeks in.
