You can’t see me right now, but my brow is furrowed. I’m watching Kendrick Lamar‘s performance of i on last night’s Saturday Night Live, and I’m honestly not sure what to think. Many people are praising his performance, but okay—first. The black contacts are terrifying. Necessarily so? Perhaps. And, for a second, I found myself wondering if my boy was on one. Maybe it was all the sweat and the hair, and I got some ODB vibes, but it was weird. His second performance of Pay For It (featuring Jay Rock) was a little more my speed.I’m very curious to hear what you guys think. Peep the video above for i and click inside for Pay For It.
So I missed Saturday Night Live last night, because I was busy recovering mentally from the madness that was the Lifetime Aaliyah movie. I’m starting to think I missed a really good episode because the skits I’m watching now are hilarious—my fave being The Dudleys. It’s a really funny critique on the current state of TV, especially in a world where social media reigns supreme. Click inside for more!
Years ago when I first started blogging I admitted that, while I do enjoy my own face immensely, there are a few women with whom I’d trade faces, at least for a day. My list was short: Kerry Washington, Chanel Iman, and Lauren London. Welp. Time to add another #Flawless woman to the list—enter, Gugu Mbatha-Raw. This weekend marks the premiere of her new movie Beyond the Lights (from the Love & Basketball director, Gina Prince-Bythewood), and I maybe spent the last 27 minutes stalking/collecting her recent red carpet appearances. It’s like Cleopatra and Isis had a baby and then that baby reincarnated itself and came back as Kerry Washington, who had a baby with Sanaa Lathan, and then that baby grew up and decided to be a fashionista/goddess of perfectly symmetrical faces. So yeah, please enjoy this gallery of some of her best looks, and go see Beyond the Lights! My boo Nate Parker is in it too, and I’m hearing great things. Also, I’m not able to pick a favorite dress here because Gaaahhhhh, she is stunning!

I just watched about 75% of the Lifetime Aaliyah movie and I have to say… I’m glad. I’m truly glad… that I got to experience that madness with the wonderful world of Twitter. Five minutes in, and the memes were already popping off all over the place—it was incredible. On a serious note, I also have to say a lot of people were pissed about the romanticization of R. Kelly‘s relationship with Aaliyah. Because, um, that guy was/is a known pedophile, so the part of the script where he told an impatient and in love Aaliyah they had to WAIT FOR HER TO TURN 18 BEFORE THEY HAD SEX, well, that just rang untrue. To say the least. But at least there were some laughs? Click inside for more!
I feel like I heard whisperings about an upcoming Solange wedding, but apparently this is really going down! Solange is getting hitched to her longtime boo Alan Ferguson, and I am going to be incredibly superficial and say I CANNOT WAIT TO SEE THE DRESSSSSssss! AGH! Anyway, Beyoncé was spotted sans baby Blue Ivy and Jay Z hitting up the wedding rehearsal dinner, so of course E! is making a whole headline out of it. Click inside for more!
This is a great story. So, apparently, we should all be marrying (and divorcing) oil tycoons because oil tycoons make life happy (just kidding, they make money… like a lot of it, everywhere, all of the time). Sue Ann Hamm has been finalizing her divorce from Oklahoma oilman Harold Hamm, and she’s been making headlines in a way that I find… interesting. Basically, I get the sense that people are portraying her as this crazy, greedy, ex-wife who isn’t happy with her BILLION dollar settlement, but upon further investigation, I think her plans to appeal the settlement make perfect sense.

Way back in 2012 we first heard rumblings that the iconic ’90s pop group S Club 7 were planning to reunite … but nothing came of those rumors and all hope was lost. Then last month, out of the complete blue, we learned OFFICIALLY that S Club 7 would be reuniting for a performance at the BBC Children In Need event and last night … the impossible happened. All 7 members of S Club 7 reunited to perform a medley of their biggest hits. The video above speaks for itself because, really, what else can one say about such a momentous moment? See, friends, dreams really do come true if you believe hard enough.

Earlier today we saw video of Johnny Depp seemingly drunkenly slurring his way through an introduction on stage at the Hollywood Film Awards last night and we learned that Jennifer Lopez had to laugh her way through her messy HFAs intro as well. Right now, we learn that actress Kristen Stewart suffered a wardrobe malfunction when her nipple slipped out from in between the holes in her top, flashing everyone in sight at the HFAs last night. Whoops!! More »

So, yeah, I had myself quite a busy past 24 hours … in that time, I made my way down to Anaheim, CA to pick up my race materials for the inaugural Avengers Half Marathon Weekend at Disneyland, I checked into my cheapie hotel, I met up and hung out with my BFFs Darion and Courtney at Disneyland and I ran the inaugural Avengers Super Heroes 5K Race … and it ain’t even noon yet. All of these things were very fun — especially the 5K which was the funnest 5K race I’ve run to date. I have a lot of photos to share, I hope you like :D More »
