"'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!
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!
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 Stenberg 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.
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!
This is hilarious. Cry-face emoji, cry-face emoji.
So every day I’ve been checking various celebrities’ social media accounts, really in an attempt to see who’s speaking out about the events in Baltimore, Maryland. It’s been disappointing to see that some of my favorites (AHEM) have not said a word, but I’m still hopeful that this will change. Anyway, Nicki Minaj has been incredibly busy working, and clubbing, and I’m not mad at her, I swear (not really). And I actually enjoyed this little video of her dancing to Sean Paul in a corner, happily alone. Brought back a lot of memories. Click inside for more!

"This is habanero pepper juice...."
Last week we were talking about body positivism and I brought up Chrissy Teigen‘s ability to look fabulous, according to modern beauty standards—even when she’s showing off her bruises and stretch marks. Today, I’m reminded that the model continues to look like a model, seemingly at all times, even when she appears to be on the losing end of a bet, and drinking habanero pepper juice. Incredible.

Badgal Gone Blonde
I have yet to see a V Magazine photoshoot that isn’t fun, freaky, and NSFW, so here’s another one for the batch. Rihanna, who recently got a pretty incredible mouth piercing, and released a new music video for American Oxygen, continues to have more fun than everyone else as the cover star for the latest V issue. Click inside to check out the badgal gone blonde!

And, of course you can't even buy one :/
Back in September we first learned that Apple was introducing a new piece of luxury tech called the Apple Watch that, on the high end, would sell for upwards of $10,000. Last month, we did learn that the high end, expensive gold Apple Watch would be available for sale but not before it was made available to celebrity tastemakers like Beyoncé — who already has her damn gold Apple Watch and is showing it off on her official website.

SPOILER ALERT: The word is "perfection."
Ughhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. Flawless Blake Lively in a drop-dead gorgeous Monique Lhuillier gown is flawless! She’s like a friggen real life Betty Draper and I can’t take it. Lively had the audacity to show up and show out at her Age Of Adaline premiere, and I’m going to go take off my pajama shirt now and at least make an attempt at getting dressed today because, day-um. Peep the gallery for more! Also, she Instagrammed a shot of her Judith Leiber ‘Koi Fish’ Swarovski-crystal clutch—you likey? Peep the gallery for more!
