Amy Schumer has been hospitalized with some pregnancy complications ... and, as a result, has had to cancel an upcoming comedy gig.

Sources close to the comedian tell us she was taken to a Texas hospital Thursday for nausea ... a common issue during the second trimester of a pregnancy. We are told both Amy and baby are okay and healthy, but just wanted to check with a doctor.

Schumer was scheduled to perform Thursday at Winspear Opera House, but that show has been canceled.

Amy was hospitalized back in April for a severe kidney infection and spent 5 days under doctor's care for the issue. 

It was in late October she announced she and husband Chris Fischer were expecting their first child together. 

Following her incredible speech at the Women's March in January, Halsey penned another striking poem about the "Inconvenient Woman" and it's powerful AF. Read the words to her original poem here.

Yesterday, Halsey delivered powerful and striking speech at the Glamour Women of the Year summit in New York (Nov 12) titled "Inconvenient Woman." The poem, written by Halsey herself, breaks down the double standards that women face in today's society - and it's an absolute must watch.

 

Whether you're familiar with Halsey or not, you'll have probably seen the video of her standing on stage in New York City at the Woman's March in January 2018 delivering an emotional and incredibly visceral speech called "A Story Like Mine". The poem, which detailed Halsey's own sexual abuse as well as the countless other woman who have bravely come forward to open up about it, was viewed by millions of people. If you haven't seen it, you can watch it below.

In her latest speech, Halsey touches upon the inequalities, societal pressures and double standards that women from all different backgrounds face every day. The point of the poem? Every quality that leads men to be labelled as "genius" are the same qualities that cause women to be labelled “an inconvenience.” She opens the speech by saying: 

"Brutally honest, outspoken and fearless

Goes with their gut, never favors appearance'

Cause who has time for vanity with opponents to extinguish?

And don’t you think that hint of silver hairline is…distinguished?

In men? All these qualities, they make you a genius.

But if you’re a woman, you’re an inconvenience."

Throughout the speech, Halsey references some all too familiar situations that women have had to and continue to deal with. Whether it's women in the work place who find themselves losing out to men who aren't as qualified as they are, black women and other women of colour who are labelled "angry" when they speak up, women (including trans women) who can't or don't want children being called a "waste", women who battle with their own mental health and end up being ridiculed or called a failure... 

Halsey ends the powerful speech by asking women to live their truths and "be inconvenient," regardless of what society might think of them.

"Aren’t all these women just so inconvenient?

Ever since the march I’ve been asked to write poems

But irony proves to be just ever-growin’

I’m asked to address how to be "inconvenient"

But before I can speak, first they want me to screen it.

They’re scared that I’ll freak out and do something wild!

But censorship really just isn’t my style.

Some even suggested that they write the speech

But how could they say that they do what they preach?

With all due respect to these media teams,I don’t get on a stage and not say what I mean.

So, sorry to Glamour for cursing too often

But I’ve never really been the type that would soften.

A message I’m passionate about in my bones

So, if you’re offended, and viewing at home:

I’m here to say that I’m not sorry

For being…inconvenient.

You were not put on this earth to make everybody else’s life easier.

 

So please, be inconvenient."

Stan Lee, the man responsible for much of the Marvel Universe, has died ... Stan's daughter tells TMZ.

We're told an ambulance rushed to Lee's Hollywood Hills home early Monday morning and he was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. We're told that's where he died.

Lee had suffered several illnesses over the last year or so -- he had a bout of pneumonia and vision issues.

Stan started Marvel with Jack Kirby in 1961 with The Fantastic Four. He went on to create Spider-Man, Black Panther, The Incredible Hulk, X-Men, Iron Man and The Avengers.

Stan made cameo appearances in all of the Marvel movies.

Lee had a rocky relationship with Marvel once the company went full-tilt Hollywood. He sued the company in 2002 for royalties he said he was owed for the first "Spider-Man" movie. Three years later he settled the case for $10 million.

"Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse" is the latest installment of the film's franchise and will be released next month.

Lee is survived by his daughter, J.C. His wife of 69 years, Joan, died in 2017.

J.C. tells TMZ, "My father loved all of his fans. He was the greatest, most decent man."

Lee was 95.

RIP

Demi Lovato was spotted holding hands with fashion designer, Henri Alexander Levy, during a dinner date! Here’s everything you need to know about him!

 

Demi Lovato was seen out and about outside of rehab along with Henri Alexander Levy, a fashion designer. Not only were they spotted getting dinner with one another at the Matsuhisa restaurant in Beverly Hills on Nov. 3, the two of them were photographed holding hands at the dinner table. While it’s uncertain if they’re just friends or more at this time, here’s everything we know about him so far.

1. He’s an extremely successful fashion designer. Spearheading his own brand Enfants Riches Deprimes, Henri’s work has been worn by celebs like Sofia RichieKanye West and more. It also doesn’t hurt that Demi herself has also been seen wearing his brand before, too.

2. He’s also gone to rehab as well. “I was, like, a fuck up in high school,” he told Complex. “I was caught up in drugs and shit like that.” After attending Visions Adolescent Treatment in Malibu when he was 15, he also went to Cirque Lodge in Utah and Promises, which is also located in Malibu.

3. He credits his experience in rehab with inspiring his future work. “Being around those kids [in rehab], just their absurd entitlement and everything, definitely had an influence,” he added. “They don’t have to work a day in their lives, you know what I mean? Their complete existence is based around what other people think.”

4. He also is responsible for a pretty cool documentary. He created the film Aluminum Tastes Like Fear, which is all about the two worlds he occupies — one, his high-end fashion line, and two, his punk rock lifestyle.

5. His fashion line’s Instagram is super private. In fact, he only lets 5,802 people follow him and in turn he doesn’t follow anyone back.

At the end of a controversial take-down of various poltical figures ahead of Tuesday's midterms, Pete Davidson used his "SNL" platform to speak out about his broken engagement to singer Ariana Grande.

This time, she might be happy with his comments.

"And the last thing I will say is, I know some of you are curious about the breakup, but the truth is it's nobody's business and sometimes things just don't work out — and that's okay," Davidson said. "She's a wonderful, strong person, and I genuinely wish her all the happiness in the world."

Returning to the spot's political theme, he wrapped things up by urging people to vote on Tuesday.

Watch:

Just 30 minutes before, Grande had dropped the new song "thank u, next," in which she sings, "I'm so f-ckin' grateful for my ex," name-checking Davidson with the lines, "Even almost got married / And for Pete I'm so thankful." The song lists all of Grande's best-known boyfriends, touchingly referring to the late Mac Miller with the line, "Wish I could say 'thank you' to Malcolm / 'Cause he was an angel."

The song takes a far more affectionate approach than a tweet Grande posted Friday that was thought to be about Davidson. In it, she wrote, "For somebody who claims to hate relevancy u sure love clinging to it huh." The tweet followed the release of an "SNL" promo in which Davidson mocked their lightning-fast engagment and breakup.

The clip that made Ariana tweet in anger:
