Usher Boldly Stated That He Is Not Here For Independence Day

It's all about Juneteenth

Oh, the 4th of July—you tricky, tricky holiday. I’ve said plenty of times before that growing up with parents who are also historians and professors of African and African-American history makes for an interesting experience. My mother, for example, was obsessed with the 4th of July fireworks and I have great memories of driving down to the Charles River (excuse me, Chaaahles Rivah) to watch them with her. And, at the same time, it was always made clear to me that this was not an Independence Day for black Americans, who were still enslaved at the time—even by some of the very writers and editors of the Declaration of Independence. So yes, yes, yesss to this statement Usher made over the weekend at the Essence Festival! Click inside for more!

Beyoncé Shows Off Boobs And Body Art For Her Beyhive

The Hawtness

As some of you may know, this weekend I’m in Boston celebrating the long weekend with my best friend. When you’ve known someone since the third grade, the embarrassingly hilarious memories are just endless, and we had some great laughs about our Bad Boy period, which often involved screaming at the TV during the BET Awards. These conversations serve to remind me that I too was once a part of a group of fans not unlike the Beyhive, and I would have gotten Bad Boy body paint if that had been an actual thing. So, congrats Beyhive! You have one more way to show your dedication to your Queen. Click inside for more!

These Photos Are Why I’m Unfollowing Selita Ebanks On Instagram

IT'S TOO MUCH!

Earlier this year I realized that Instagram was not as fun for me as it used to be. I couldn’t quite put my finger on it, and then I realized that it was because of the models. I was following way too many models, and it was making me sad. Because dammit, if I post a selfie I want to enjoy that selfie and the likes it garners. I don’t want to post it, and then scroll down and see the likes of Selita Ebanks on my timeline. She is, officially, too horrifyingly stunning for me to bear witness to anymore and so I’m unfollowing her right now. In a minute. I’m done with her. So, peep the gallery for more unless you want to walk away still being okay with Selita Ebanks‘ existence.

P.S. Unfortch, I am no following Ashi Studio, the folks who made that gorgeous gown.

30 Reasons Rihanna Is All The Fashion Inspiration You Need This Summer

This weekend I’ll be somewhere very, very special celebrating my Dirty Thirty (follow me on Instagram to find out where, and how many mimosas I will have had by Saturday morning), and I’ve decided to pretend I’m Rihanna for at least 7 hours out of every day. Of all the fashionistas we have out here, she’s one of few who really seems to wear exactly what she wants, all of the time, without giving a whole heap of effs about it. The word is “effortless.” She’s not trying, and it looks SO good. Peep the gallery for all the fashion inspiration you’ll need this summer, or ever in life.

"You can get fined for swerving too hard so it's tough"

Jaden Christopher Pinkett-Smith, the only son of Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith, has become a bit of a fashionista in recent years with his bold fashion choices. Smith is featured in the new issue of GQ magazine wherein he talks a bit about his style and answers questions about some of his more … interesting outfits. You may recall that Jaden wore a white Batman costume to Kanye West‘s wedding ceremony back in May of 2014 … an outfit he wore, again, to his high school prom. GQ asked him what that was all about and his answer, as you can read below, is perfectly Jaden Smith. More »

For Whatever Reason, I’m Here For Lady Gaga’s Bikini Shots

She's feelin' herself

A couple of weeks back we checked out some amazing bikini shots on the Instagram account Swimsuits for All. It was a blast, and I even got some inspiration and went and picked out a pretty bomb swimsuit for myself later that day (thank you, Target). Something about Lady Gaga‘s latest Instagram beach photos reminded me of those pics—probably all that booty, LOL. Click inside for more! I am loving these.

Rihanna’s Tokyo Photos Will Make You Want To Dye Your Hair And Run Away To Japan

Stuntin' on Harajuku Street

You’d think after all this time posting celebrity selfies and photos of their fabulous lives, I’d be used to it. I wouldn’t catch feelings, and I wouldn’t take every photo as a personal indictment against my plain ol’ dark, brown hair. But dammnnn Riri looks so amazing in these photos I am lit’rally sitting here imagining how I’d look with slightly orange hair. In Tokyo. Click inside for more!

Uzo Aduba Has Been Slaying Red Carpets Everywhere

Werk, Crazy Eyes, werk!

Because we’ve all got Orange is the New Black on the brain, it feels right to celebrate Uzo Aduba AKA Crazy Eyes AKA Suzanne Warner. I don’t know if you all know this, but Uzo and I are BFF from that one time I interviewed her and she let me take a picture with her. And she is also one of my new favorite actors to watch on the red carpet. The dress she wore to the Lucille Lortel Awards is one of my personal faves, and I just love seeing her in creme or white. Peep the gallery for more!

Nicki Minaj Would You Like You To Know She Is Ballin’ On No Budget

This photo hurts to look at

If you are a rapper, there’s a 97% chance that, at some point or another, you’ve bragged about how baller you are. There’s nothing anyone can do about it, it’s just a part of the culture at this point-you must invoke your baller-istic behavior. So Nicki Minaj is just doing her part to keep up the rapper status quo with this new photo. But, considering the fact that I just had to reevaluate my whole life/budget because I spent about $50 at the pharmacy on over-the-counter medicine for one of my babies, this photo is painful to look at. Like, wicked painful. So… enjoy?
