Kanye West Is A Doctor Now

"I am a pop artist ... the world is my canvas."

Earlier today, we saw video of Kanye West doing a quick performance of his song All Day during a time-out at a Chicago Bulls basketball game over the weekend. Not only was Kanye in town to see a basketball game but he was also on hand to receive an honorary doctorate from the School of Art Institute of Chicago today. That’s right, folks … Kanye West is now officially Dr. West. Kanye‘s wife shared a photo of Dr. West wearing his cap and gown during this weekend’s graduation ceremony at SAIC and the school has shared audio of Kanye, sorry, Dr. West delivering his remarks during commencement. Click below to see and hear Dr. Kanye West in action. More »

Here’s Beyoncé, Dripping Wet With Something On Instagram

Yesterday we saw some great shots of Beyoncé getting all summer-ready on Instagram. And today, the pics keep comin’ in. There’s a lot going on in this new photo, y’all. Beyoncé appears to be dripping wet with… sweat? Water? Baby oil? Yup, it’s definitely baby oil, I think. Also, there’s, like, a black swan thing popping off with her outfit. I’m sort of… into it? Well, it’s a pretty dope pic, as Instagram pics go. Click inside for more!

Solange Will Bless The FYF Fest With New Music!

Damn you lucky LA folks!

It is so ridiculous to stan over a celebrity. It’s like, we don’t know them. In most cases, we’ve never met them. And yet, here we are. Stanning. Like me, on Solange‘s Instagram page, obsessing over every inch of her, whilst listening to Bad Girls. It doesn’t make sense! It doesn’t make sense to get mad at Trent ahead of time, because you just know he’s gonna end up at the FYF Fest in August, getting to hear new Solange music before you. Whatever, it’s fine.

Beyoncé Gets Ready For Summer, Also Has The Face Of A 17 Year-Old

Queen Bey Face

Guys, it’s too early for Instagram-stalking, yet here I am. I’m literally sitting here saying things like, “Shannon, it’s probably photoshopped—you know how Beyoncé gets down.” And, “Shannon, she’s a millionaire, and the greatest surgeons in the world have had access to her face,” and other fun things like that to remind myself that no normal person should look like this, at age 33. Anyway, all that to say, these new Instagram photos are lovely, and Bey looks great. Click inside for more!

The Fashions From The 2015 MET Ball Gala Were Expectedly Outrageous

'China: Through the Looking Glass'

The Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala took place in NYC, NY last night and, as usual, a Who’s Who of celebs and fashionistas made an appearance on those famed red carpeted steps to show off their high fashion finery. Fashion heavyweights like Anna Wintour & Diane von Furstenberg mingled with celebs like Rihanna, Kerry Washington & Sarah Jessica Parker, along with young newcomers like FKA twigs & Lorde … who all mingled with demigods like Beyoncé and Madonna (who, I have to say, kinda disappointed me with her lame Rebel Heart promo dress). It was clear that some attendees really went out of their way to make fashion statements (SJP with her headdress, Ri Ri with her omelet gown) while others just slayed as usual. I think my fave looks of the night had to come from Beyoncé (looking Toxic), Solange (dressed for potential battle with Jay Z again) and Jennifer Lopez (flawless, always). Click through the gallery to see some of the folks who strutted their stuff at the MET Ball Gala last night and sound off below on who you think looked best … and worst.

Beyoncé Wants You To Know That She Looked Like A Bawse When She Left Las Vegas

It's fine. She looked fine.

Yesterday we got to see some great photos of Beyoncé and Jay Z alongside Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill, who were all in Las Vegas with a host of other celebrities for the supposed Fight of the Century. I thought Bey looked great, but I think she was concerned that we didn’t fully grasp the magnificence of her jumpsuit/cape situation. Because we didn’t. Please click inside and behold Beyoncé Leaving Vegas Like A Bawse.

First Look: Kanye West, Diddy, Riccardo Tisci and André Leon Star In The New Documentary ‘Fresh Dressed’

"'Being Fresh is More Important than Having Money"

You all know that I love a good documentary. I think the last two I watched were Going Clear, and this new addition to Netflix called Fed Up (on obesity in American, health food and healthy lifestyle myths and the role of major corporations in all of it.) So I got really excited when I heard that there was a new hip-hop/fashion documentary coming soon, called Fresh Dressed. Pharrell Williams, Kanye West, Nas, Big Daddy Kane, Riccardo Tisci and André Leon Talley all make appearances, along with the legendary Dapper Dan. Click inside for more!

Beyoncé And Nicki Minaj Hung Out During Last Night’s Big Fight

BFFs? Probably not, but they look cute.

Last night, a very talented boxer who has beaten up more women than I can count (and sometimes, in front of his own kids, just for fun) won “the fight of the century.” But we’re not here for him, or for that. We’re here for these glorious photos of Beyoncé and Nicki Minaj, and their respective man-boos. I have to say, Bey looked pretty amazing in this red, caped pants suit. Click inside for more!

Jesse Williams, Killer Mike And Amandla Sternberg Stand With The Baltimore Uprising

While many celebrities remain deafeningly quiet...

There have been many celebrities taking to Twitter, Instagram, and other means to speak their mind about the Baltimore Uprising, which has now inspired an uprising and awareness across America. Of course there have been many, many, many more celebrities who haven’t said a damn thing. Rappers, actors, pop stars who just looove them some black culture are busy posting selfies, because that’s what they’ve chosen to use their voices for, while the people responsible for many of the things they love are being killed left and right. If I seem angry (haha, “seem”), it’s because I am. I’m actually so tired and angry, I’ve sat here staring at this blank post for a good 15 minutes, trying to figure out how to say it ALL. But I can’t. Luckily, a few brilliant celebrities have spoken to and publicized much of my anger—which they themselves feel—making my job today a little bit easier. Jesse Williams, Killer Mike and Amandla Sternberg are the celebrities I am really, really appreciative of right now. Not only are they speaking for myself, and many others, but they are schooling ALL of us. Click inside for more.

Reese Witherspoon Shares A Beautiful Photo Of Her Daughter On Instagram

TWINNING!

So, my oldest is about to turn seven this summer, and it’s terrifying. He’s now so tall that it’s occurred to me that he absolutely will be taller than me one day, and there’s nothing I can do about it. All that to say, kids growing up is weird! And celebrity kids growing up is also weird! I knew Reese Witherspoon‘s daughter wasn’t a baby anymore, but damn! She’s, like, this real person with great but subtle make-up, and an amazing blue dye-job. Reese took to Instagram to share a photo and I just can’t get over how cute this. Click inside for more!
