"I will always take a stance on women writing b/c I believe in us!"
Over the weekend, Nicki Minaj garnered some bit of attention after it was reported that she was throwing shade at Iggy Azalea during her acceptance speech at The BET Awards. Nicki wants it know that she wasn’t shading anyone with her speech, she was just speaking her mind as she always does. Nicki posted a series of tweets on her official Twitter profile earlier today that clarify once and for all the message she was trying to convey with her speech.

Back in May we learned that actress Angela Bassett teamed up with Lifetime TV to produce a made-for-TV biopic movie about the life of Whitney Houston and in early June, we learned that Yaya Alafia has been cast in the lead role as Whitney. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly magazine about her directorial debut, Angela was asked if she considered casting Whitney‘s daughter Bobbi Kristina in the movie and she explained very thoughtfully why she did not consider BK for the role. In an act of childishness and, honestly, horrible offensiveness, Bobbi Kristina decided to vehemently attack Angela Bassett for her comments. First, BK mocks Angela for looking like a “male” and then she calls her a “bitch”. Bobbi Kristina, folks … classy as always. More »
'I know what your next question is so let’s just skip it'
LOL. Okay, so this is basically my nightmare. When you’re interviewing an actor or director, there’s this underlying fear that you are going to say something to completely botch the whole thing. I worry sometimes that I’m going to bring up something they don’t want to talk about, or something that pisses them off; I also have this huge fear of getting some kind of important fact wrong. So this new Mila Kunis interview just made me sooo uncomfortable. As you know, the actor is pregnant with her first child, so maybe that had something to do with it? I’m very curious to hear what you guys think about this, so click inside for more!

This Dress Is Making Me SICK! I Love It!
One day I am going to create a gallery of my 75 favorite Jessica Alba red carpet looks. This chic is so effing on point it hurts. I’m still not over that all-black Narciso Rodriguez outfit she wore, and that happened a year ago. Anyway, the fashionista took to Instagram to share her look from the Magnum Golden Butterfly Awards and I almost fell over myself. Click inside for more!

This Sounds Huge.
A few weeks back I remember The Matrix trilogy was being shown on TV and I got to relive some of the magic all over again. It’s easy to forget how huge of a deal these movies were when they first came out, but there were so many scenes and moments that would go on to become iconic. All of that to say, there’s a reason Andy and Lana Wachowski are The Wachowskis, and there’s plenty of reason to get excited about Sense8, which is coming to Netflix soon! Click inside for more!

Celebrating The Fashion Icon's Best Of The Best
There has been so much going on this week, but I swear. I’ve only had one thing on my mind. Friggen Rihanna at the CFDA Fashion Awards. OMG. Now I know I’ve written about being anti-certain RiRi movements in the past, but the bottom line is she deserved every inch of that award, and she showed up (IMO) looking like a fashion icon. I loved that she paid homage to Josephine Baker, and I love that she also had a sense of humor about it. So, let’s celebrate #Throwback Thursday with some of her greates looks in music videos.

As some of you may remember, Django Unchained changed my liiiife. There are so many Tarantino movies I love, I cannot count the ways. But Django did something else to me. For that reason, you’d think I’d be a little wary of a television miniseries event, but I want all the Django I can get. So when I read that Quentin Tarantino was thinking about bringing some never-before-seen footage to television, I got psyched beyond belief. Click inside for more!
