That Ish Cray Of-The-Day
Now this is interesting. The Mike Brown case is really brining to light some disturbing details about the way individual police forces in America are run. When I think of police brutality and the rampant shooting of unarmed men, the cities that come to my mind are the more obvious ones—New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, etc. But I just learned that Albuquerque, New Mexico—despite being much smaller in population— has a police shooting rate that is higher than New York City’s. And—along with the National Rifle Association—they’ve decided to hold a police shooting competition this year. Protestors (many of whom have lost children at the hands of these officers) are obviously furious. Click inside for more.
So … I don’t want to alarm anyone but … Snoop Dogg is blonde now. Yes, it’s true. Snoop uploaded a series of photos and videos on his official Instagram profile that show him as a blonde man named “Todd”. We all know that Snoop is the kind of guy who likes to have fun and everybody knows that blondes have more fun so … it makes sense? I dunno. What I do know is that Snoop looks kind of creepy as a blonde but it’s all good in the hood where Snoop‘s concerned.

"The new #ZARA T-Shirt is somewhat #Holocaust ish in its design"
Ugh. Spanish clothier Zara really stepped into a pile of mess last week when they unveiled a t-shirt for sale that read White is the new Black. Today we learn that they followed up with that horrible faux pas with something, IMHO, way worse. Zara listed for sale a pajama top meant for babies that looked horrifyingly similar to the striped pajamas that Jews were forced to wear in German concentration camps in the 1940s. The striped pajamas emblazoned with a yellow Star of David is an image that anyone with any passing knowledge of the atrocities of the Jewish holocaust would well recognize … except for the folks at Zara. Click below to see a side-by-side comparison of the almost-matching pajamas and read what Zara had to say in apology. More »

"There are some nice guys out here trying to just feed their family"
Earlier this month we learned that Kanye West was deposed in the on-going civil lawsuit that was brought against him by a paparazzi photographer that alleges that West assaulted him at LAX Airport (you may recall that we saw photos last year that seem to confirm the photog’s allegation). In his depo, Kanye tried to liken the “struggle” that celebrities face with the actual struggle that people endured during the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s. Ugh. Today we learn new information from West‘s deposition … we learn that Kanye actually has respect for some paparazzi photographers and we also learn that his father was a paparazzo himself. Waitaminute, say what?! More »

But was it really an accident...?
Listen, Trent is right. There’s really only one thing you need to see from last night’s MTV VMAs, and that’s Beyoncé and Blue Ivy performing… mainly Blue Ivy. But everyone is going to be talking about Nicki Minaj‘s massive wardrobe malfunction and I want you to be informed. So, I’m sitting there watching the show, and after performing Anaconda, Nicki comes back out to finish up Bang Bang with Ariana Grande and Jessie J. The entire time she’s clasping her dress and looking crazy — I actually thought she was planning some sort of big reveal and we were all about to see EVERYTHING (ya never know with the VMAs). But yeah, not so much. Click inside for more! UPDATE: Is it possible that the “wardrobe malfunction” was completely STAGED?!
Um. How do I get my boobs to do this???
Friggen, this chic. That’s all I have to say. This. Chic. Okay, no, I have more to say. Naomi Campbell reminds me that there is a whole new world waiting for me beyond my thirties. People don’t get it when I say I’m looking forward to getting older, but I get the sense that if you are as awesome and fierce as I sometimes think I am in my head, ish only gets better. Enter 44 year-old Naomi Campbell, who scored two big covers recently—one for Harper’s Bazaar Latin America, and the other for Interview Magazine. I always love the Interview shoots, and this time they really went above and beyond. Click inside for what may be the greatest NSFW Naomi Campbell photo ever.
Things that make you go Hmmmm...
One of our recent YATNB discussions was centered around the idea of celebrities going overboard with plastic surgery. We all have that one celeb who we love, but then they got some work done… and then got a little more… and then went too far with it, and became somewhat unrecognizable. Jennifer Aniston recently came out against facial plastic surgery, and now new mom Jenni ‘JWOWW’ Farley is speaking out too. Which is kind of funny, because I’d always assumed she was okay with it… because, well, she looks like she’s had some. But maybe not? Click inside for more!

That Ish Cray Of-The-Day
Oh. Helllll. Nawwwllll. Why is that every time a wild animal does something that is completely normal for a wild animal, everyone’s all like, “I can’t believe that wild animal did something wild!” OMG. So. We now know that Nicki Minaj was planning to perform her hit song/video Anaconda at the upcoming MTV Video Music Awards, but rehearsals haven’t been going so smoothly. And by ‘haven’t been going so smoothly’ I mean that one of her backup dancers straight up got bitten by a 6-foot-long boa constrictor. I repeat: Oh. Hell. Nawl. Click inside for more.
