Published

on

Kim Kardashian West couldn’t be prouder of her daughter North.

On Thursday, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star raved about her eldest child in a sweet post on Instagram, which featured several shots of North, 7, getting her hair and makeup done.

In the first photo, North rocked an outfit from SKIMS’ Kids Cozy Collection as she showed off her curled hair and makeup done by professionals, which was documented in the other two snaps.

“My beautiful sweet smart baby girl! I love playing dress up with you!” the mom of four captioned the post.

Kardashian West’s close pal, La La Anthony, commented on the photos of North, writing, “My Northie looks so beautiful ❤️❤️❤️.”

Kardashian West — who also shares daughter Chicago, 3, and sons Saint, 5, and Psalm, 21 months, with husband Kanye West — recently defended her eldest child on social media after North was accused of copying someone else’s artwork.

Earlier this month, the KKW Beauty mogul shared a photo on Instagram of a landscape painting North had completed and called her daughter a “little artist.” But after social media users quickly began questioning whether or not North had actually painted the artwork, Kardashian West hit back.

“DON’T PLAY WITH ME WHEN IT COMES TO MY CHILDREN!!!” she wrote in a lengthy post on her Instagram Story. “My daughter and her best friend have been taking a serious oil painting class where their talents and creativity are being encouraged and nurtured.”

“North worked incredibly hard on her painting with took several weeks to complete,” she continued. “As a proud mom, I wanted to share her work with everyone.”

Kardashian West went on to share drawings that West, 43, had done when he was young.

“Throwback to some of her dad’s artwork that he did when he was a kid,” she captioned a series of sketches.

Sources previously told PEOPLE that Kardashian West is preparing to file for divorce from her rapper husband after nearly seven years of marriage. A source told PEOPLE last month that she is concerned about what that will mean for the kids.

“The children are very important to Kim,” the source said. “She is worried about what a permanent split will be like for all of them concerning their well being.”

Content creator Kalen Allen shares most outlandish vaccine claim

Published

Kalen Allen is an award-nominated actor, producer, singer, and television personality at just 25 years old. First making his mark in his “Kalen Reacts” videos, he was discovered in 2018 by Ellen DeGeneres and secured a content-creating role, but his creative work didn’t stop there. Allen joins Health IQ to discuss vaccinations and the hesitancy of the Black community towards getting them.

What’s your recipe for protecting yourself as you move through this pandemic?
I am fully vaccinated, [and the] vaccine is very much just like a flu vaccine. Understand that it does not mean that you won’t still get COVID, but it will make sure that you are able to survive COVID just like any other immunization. Personally, I still carry around my mask. [Though] I will say that I feel a little bit safer knowing that the vaccine is out and that people have been getting vaccinated.

How have you stayed up to date and informed yourself?
I definitely do my own research, and I do my own work for myself to understand the vaccine. And I understand the hesitation, especially when we talk about things such as the Tuskegee project and the HIV/AIDS epidemic and how that was handled by the government. I try to do my best and advocate for other people and make sure that they try and learn for themselves, instead of relying on social media, ads, or different publications to tell you what’s best for you.

What is the most outlandish thing you heard was going to happen if you got the vaccine?
I had this conversation the other day [with someone], they said they got in a car, a car-sharing service. And the driver told him that they were not getting the vaccine, because it turns people into frogs. That is probably the most insane thing that I’ve ever heard.

For those young people who are really looking to get their break, how can they actually build a career in the business today and build their brands?
As a young child, I always put myself in places and situations and made friends with the people that knew what I wanted my life to be. And I would create that energy in that space around me. Also, everything that I do is done with purpose and intention. There’s a lot of people that have aspirations but don’t necessarily do anything to get them to that point because they think it should just happen. Nothing that I did happened overnight. A lot of the time it happened behind the scenes.
