Kim Kardashian and Kylie Partner for Kylie Cosmetics

Inatagram: @Kyliejenner
Send nudes.
It was only a matter of time.
Kylie has collaborated with older sister, Kim Kardashian West, for a new lip kit set for Kylie Cosmetics.
The color scheme?
Nude, of course. The KarJenner's favorite color palette, especially Kimmy's. She's been rocking the nude lip a lot lately.
The promo for the line definitely plays up the talk that Kylie is trying to be Kim. They look like twins in this photo!

The nudes are: Kimberly, Kiki, Kim and Kimmie...because....duh. This line is also the debut of a new creme liquid formula that's "authentic and organic".
The line drops on April 25th.
What color are you going to grab?

Serena Williams is Pregnant

Tennis superstar, Serena Williams dropped the news via Snapchat, but then quickly deleted it.....but that didn't work with the internet!
The 35 year old and her fiancee, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, confirm they are welcoming their first child this Fall.
Why does that bangin' body STILL look good 20 weeks pregnant?!
Seriously, she looks better than I do and I'M NOT PREGGO!
So let's do the math....that means she won the Australian Open while she was in the first trimester of her pregnancy! Remember, that's the one where she won her record-breaking 23rd grand slam.
It's also cute that both she and Beyonce are pregnant at the same time!

Now more importantly...has anyone checked on Drake?
Is he doing okay with the news?

Aaron Hernandez Commits Suicide

Just days after being acquitted of a double murder, former New England Patriots star, Aaron Hernandez was found hanged in his prison cell Wednesday morning.
According to the Massachusetts Department of Corrections:

On April 19, 2017 Aaron Hernandez was discovered hanged in his cell by corrections officers at the Souza Baranowski Correctional Center in Shirley Massachusetts at approximately 3:05 a.m., lifesaving techniques were attempted on Mr. Hernandez and he was transported to UMASS Leominster where he was pronounced dead at 4:07 a.m. by a physician at the hospital. Mr. Hernandez was in a single cell in a general population housing unit. Mr. Hernandez hanged himself utilizing a bed sheet that he attached to his cell window. Mr. Hernandez also attempted to block his door from the inside by jamming the door with various items. The Massachusetts State Police are on scene and the investigation continues. Mr. Hernandez’s next of kin have been notified.

It seems no suicide note was left.
Hernandez was serving a life sentence with out the possibility of parole for his conviction in the 2013 shooting of a man dating his fiancee's sister.
Hernandez's death comes as the same day as the Super Bowl winning Patriots are making their visit to the White House.
Team spokesman Stacey James said the Patriots were aware of the reports of Hernandez's death but didn't anticipate the club commenting Wednesday.

Kylie Jenner Gets Her Own Show

Instagram: @kyliejenner
She rules Snapchat and every time she launches a new makeup product it's immediately sold out. It's no surprise the little of the KarJenner clan will be getting her own show.
The people at E! have announced a docu-series starring the lipkit mogul and her friends, most likely Jordyn Woods, chronicling her life as she struggles between balancing her personal and professional life.  She is after all a mini-mogul with her cosmetics and clothing line along with the ventures with her family.
"These couple years have been such an incredible journey with the support of my fans," Kylie said. "This show will allow me to give them a peek inside all of the exciting things I am working on as well as some personal time with friends."
"Kylie's beauty, business savvy and fashion icon status have made her one of the most famous and successful young women on the planet," Jeff Olde, Executive Vice President of Programming & Development at E!, said. "Kylie has achieved so much at such a young age and we know the E! audience will be thrilled now that she is ready to share an inside look at her everyday life.

E! is no stranger to Kardashian-Jenner spinoffs with installments of the older sisters going to Miami, the Hamptons, New York and then there was Khloe and Lamar's show as well as Caitlyn's.
Well, there was that Dash Dolls show, which I wasn't a fan of.
I'm sure this will be a hit.
The show premieres this summer.

Kendrick Lamar Releases Album Cover & Tracklist for New Album "Damn"

Rapper Kendrick Lamar is having quite the week and it's only going to get better.
Today the Los Angeles native released the album cover and tracklist for his highly-anticipated new album titled Damn.
The 14 song tracklist has songs with features by Rihanna and U2.
This comes days after Lamar warned us all on The Heart pt 4 that, "Y'all got 'til April the 7th to get your shit together."
The new album is due to drop on April 14th and this weekend he'll be performing at Coachella.
Recently, Lamar released the single Humble, a Mike Will-Made-It, produced song that seriously slaps. It's already debuted at number 2 on Billboard's Hot 100.

Caitlyn Jenner Reveals She's Undergone Gender Reassignment Surgery

Caitlyn is now officially all woman.
After revealing the news in her memoir The Secrets of My Life, Jenner says this is the "first and last time" she'll be talking about this.
Jenner says constant questions from the public on whether or not she still had her little member down there persuaded her to have the surgery. “I just want to have all the right parts. I am also tired of tucking the damn thing in all the time," says the reality star.
We were all introduced to Cailtyn two years ago after an explosive Vanity Fair cover following the famous interview with Diane Sawyer when Caitlyn was still known as Bruce.
Jenner's memoir is due out on April 25th and addresses her final surgery as a "success" and feels "liberated" because now she can live her life as her authentic self.
“I am going to live authentically for the first time in my life,” she says. “I am going to have an enthusiasm for life that I have not had in 39 years since the Olympics, almost two thirds of my life.”

                                  Today is the 3 year anniversary of my Uncle Tommy's passing and one of my favorite memories with him is talking to him about The Hills.
He thought it was ridiculous LC wore he couture gown in Paris when she wasn't supposed to and burned it on the iron.

Jay Z Pulls Music from Spotify

He told you himself, he's not a businessman, he's a business, man!
Hov has pulled almost all of his catalog from Spotify so it's now on TIDAL, except for his collaborations  with R. Kelly which most of us forgot they did an album together.

Billboard says , only two albums and a few stray singles remain—all collaborations: Unfinished Business (2004) and Best of Both Worlds (2002), both recorded with R. Kelly, N——s in Paris (Kanye, featuring Jay Z), Numb/Encore (a Linkin Park/Jay mashup), All the Way Up (Fat Joe and Remy Ma, featuring French Montana, Infared, and Jay Z), Clique (Big Sean with Jay Z and Kanye), and Dirt Off Your Shoulders (with Notorious B.I.G.).

Since 2015, Jay and Beyonc have been heavily promoting their own streaming service and have offered special exclusives via TIDAL.

Janet Jackson Separates from Billionaire Husband
Just 3 months after the couple welcomed their son, Eissa, Janet Jackson has split from her husband, Qatari businessman,  Wissam Al Mana. 
The pair tied the knot in 2012 and announced it to the public a year later.
This is the 3rd marriage for Jackson.
Rumors are swirling that Al Mana was too controlling over the relationship and didn't like when Janet, Miss Jackson if you're nasty, wore too little during her performances and wanted her to tone down her typical sexual dance moves.
41 year old Al Mana reportedly was the one who wanted Jackson 51, to be more reclusive and wanted the family to live under strict rules while in London while Jackson was nursing their son.
The "last straw" according to Page Six "was her husband’s reluctance to show concern for Katherine Jackson’s elder abuse claims against her nephew Trent."
TMZ is reporting that the timing of the marriage may have prenup implications.

Both Janet and Wissam Al Mana are wealthy, but he far more than she. He has an estimated net worth of $1 billion. She's worth an estimated $175 mil. 
Janet, who had a prenup with husband #2 Rene Elizondo, almost certainly had a prenup with Al Mana. Such prenups are typically structured -- so the longer the marriage, the bigger the settlement.
Prenups typically have 5 and 10 year marks, which trigger more money in the pot to be divided. Janet announced in February, 2013 that she had gotten married a year earlier.  Given the date of her reported separation from Al Mana, it seems to be almost exactly at the 5 year mark of marriage.
The couple just had a baby in January, which may also have prenup implications.

Pepsi Pulls Kendall Jenner Ad

As you've probably already heard by now, Pepsi has pulled their controversial ad starring Kendall Jenner.
The softdrink company released a statement:

People magazine is reporting Kendall is "not happy" after the ad and, rightfully so, laying low with her family.

New Pepsi Ad Featuring Kendall Jenner Sparks Outrage

 The internet is in an uproar after Pepsi debuted their latest commercial starring Kendall Jenner. In the ad, Kendall is modeling (per usual) in what looks like a high-fashion editorial donning a blonde wig. When she sees some sort of demonstration happening near by, she takes the wig off and joins the crowd into what looks like some kind of love march, that kind of resembles the Black Lives Matter movement.
Then, with cops standing guard, she hands one of the stone-faced officers a Pepsi...he cracks it open and cracks a smile and the world is one.
Many are upset at the ad because Kendall's handing of the soda resembles last year's powerful photo of Ieshia Evans, a demonstrator during the Baton Rouge rallies last summer following the officer-involved deaths of Philando Castile and Alton Sterling.
In the YouTube description for the commercial, titled Live for Now Moments Anthem, Pepsi says it's  a
short film about the moments when we decide to let go, choose to act, follow our passion and nothing
holds us back. It features Lions by Skip Marley.
Many people took to Twitter ripping the ad and the soft drink company saying the company is trying to make money off of a legitimate movement.

Beyonce Drops New Song and Video on 9th Wedding Anniversary

Only Beyonce would MAKE money off of her anniversary gift to  JayZ.
Beyonce dropped  new song  Die with You along with a touching video exclusively on Tidal on the couple's 9 year wedding anniversary.
The Carters tied the knot in a secret ceremony back in 2008 and now 9 years later have a beautiful 5 year old daughter and twins on the way!

On Beyonce's website she uploaded some photos from the family's trip to the Grand Canyon for last year's anniversary, which was just weeks before Lemonade dropped.
Like most Beyhive members, we're all still healing from Lemonade  and the ill feelings we have towards Jay.
Is our Queen giving us permission to like him again?
Bey, I need answers!

Wyclef Jean Mistakenly Arrested by LAPD

Recounting his experience on Twitter and on Instagram, rapper Wyclef Jean of Fugees fame was mistakenly arrested by LAPD.
At a little before 5am, Jean took to Instagram showing video of his arrest saying:
 L.A., right now, coming from the studio,” Mr. Jean said. “Y’all see the police have handcuffs on me. They just took off my Haitian bandanna. That’s what’s going on right now with Wyclef in L.A. right now. The L.A.P.D. have me in cuffs for absolutely nothing.

He then took to social media to explain his side of the story.

Meanwhile, the New York Times spoke to the Sgt,. Duncan with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department in West Hollywood and they confirmed that:
 " Mr. Jean had been briefly detained. The episode started just after 1 a.m. Pacific time, when deputies were investigating a report that a man and a woman had been robbed at gunpoint and beaten at a Sunset Boulevard intersection. Sgt. Duncan said in a telephone interview that the suspect was described as a black man with a dark hoodie who fled in a gold or tan Toyota. At about 1:25 a.m., deputies pulled over a vehicle matching that description driven by a woman with a male passenger. When the man, who later turned out to be Mr. Jean, was seen wearing a red bandanna, the victims, contacted by radio, said that the suspect had also been wearing one, Sgt. Duncan said.
Mr. Jean and the woman were told to get out of the car, and Mr. Jean was handcuffed and detained, Sgt. Duncan said. They were released when the victims said there was no female in the getaway car, and the three deputies and the sergeant at the location with Mr. Jean were also informed that the real suspect had been arrested elsewhere.
Sgt. Duncan said the entire episode — from when Mr. Jean was pulled over until he was allowed to leave — lasted six minutes. Mr. Jean was given a business card and told that he could go to the sheriff’s station and speak to officials there about what had happened."

The woman in the car ended up being Jean's manager.

Mariah Carey's Christmas Hit to Become a Movie

The lambily is about to die right now.
We all know Mariah Carey is the Queen of Christmas, and now she's taking it to another level.
Back in 2015 Mimi dropped a children's book based on her hit All I Want for Christmas is You.
Now she's just announced it'll be turned into an animated movie!
Can you believe a song that's 23 years old still is killing it!?

I'm a fan of this book, as well as my nieces and we're so excited for this movie to come out!

DrakeWatch: Drizzy Releases "More Life"

Don't call it an album.
Don't call it a mixtape.
It's a the October Firm.
Drizzy's long-awaited More Life dropped over the weekend and it's HOT! The firm consists of Drake and his manager Oliver El-Khatib.
The 22 track playlist has a ton of features from the 6 God's new friends, Kanye, Quavo, Giggs, Travis Scott, Young Thug, 2 Chainz, etc.
A post shared by champagnepapi (@champagnepapi) on
Right out the gate, Free Smoke got me so hyped on my train ride home that I knew this playlist was going to kill it.
On the track, Drizzy fires subtle shots again at Meek Mill with the line, "How you let the kid fightin’ ghost-writin’ rumors turn you to a ghost?”
Also on the track, we also get a little bit of information on his short-lived relationship with Jennifer Lopez. “I drunk text J. Lo / Old numbers so I bounce back / Boy Wonder gotta bounce back.” 
Then he samples Lopez's 1999 hit  If You Had My Love on Teenage Dream, which begs the this Drizzy saying dating Jenny from the Block an actual teenage dream? Because I'd say it was!
Personally, I like the faster songs with Giggs. 
The song with Kanye hasn't grown on me yet, but it's called Glow which explains this Twitter post from 'Ye a while back.
There's no telling if Drake and Kanye are actually going to be releasing an album together, because that rumor has been swirling for a while.
I did notice Sneakin  and Two Birds, One Stone didn't make the list even though Sneakin is on the radio constantly. Put this on the list of other Drake tracks that are just floating in the unisersie but not on an album *ahem Right Hand*

Another thing to note is that this wasn't an Apple Music exclusive. Other streaming sites had the playlist.
To go with the playlist, a bevy of photos on Drake's Instagram from the release party.

Target Plays 'Spice Up Your Life' in Victoria Beckham Ad

                        You know you were a tween or teen during the late 90's when this commercial gave you life as soon as you heard the whistle blowing. Victoria Beckhan's (or Posh Spice) line for Target is dropping in April, but until then we have this awesome add playing the Spice Girls hit Spice Up Your Life.
Victoria Beckham for Target has about 200 pieces for women and girls.
A post shared by Victoria Beckham (@victoriabeckham) on

The clothes aren't only for the posh budget, they range from $40-$70.
“Designing for children is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time, so I was incredibly excited to be able to incorporate childrenswear into this collection,” Beckham previously told Target.

“Being a mother has helped me understand what’s important when it comes to the category. 
“I have had years of learning that function is often just as important as form, and that children need to be able to feel comfortable and free in what they wear.”
The collection, which channels her Victoria, Victoria Beckham (VVB) line also proposes Beckham’s inaugural plus-size offering with garments running up to size 3X.

Nicki Minaj FINALLY Claps Back at Remy Ma with Three Singles

Well, it's about damn time!
Nicki Minaj has FINALLY responded to both of Remy Ma's diss tracks with three singles hitting music sharing sites No Frauds, Changed It and Regret in Your Tears all dropped on the interwebs Thursday evening. No Frauds includes her YMCMB brothers Lil Wayne and Drake and Changed It features just Wayne. . Basically, Nicki waited to actually MAKE money on the diss records...according to her post on Instagram.
She challenges Remy to respond in 72 hours and offering to pay her a half-a-million dollars if she can get an interview and NOT mention Minaj.
A post shared by Nicki Minaj (@nickiminaj) on
Team Remy and Team Nicki have been at odds for almost two weeks after Remy dropped ShEther. Fans were waiting for Nicki's response and assumed she just couldn't fight back lyrically. Meanwhile we saw her take her lyrical fingers to social media starting a beef with Trey Songz and posting pictures of her famous friends. We basically had to wait for her to return from Paris Fashion Week to finally respond and here we are.

In No Frauds, Minaj raps, “You can’t be Pablo if your work ain’t sellin’ / What the f— is this bitch inhalin’? / Tried to drop ‘Another One,’ you was itchin’ to scrap / You exposed your ghostwriter / Now you wish it was scrapped." Minaj also touches on Remy's personal life, especially when she went to prison.

A post shared by Nicki Minaj (@nickiminaj) on

#NoFrauds #FactsOnly ft @champagnepapi & @liltunechi #YoungMoneyTilTheDeathOfMe committing perjury #IGotB4andafterPicturesOfYourSurgery #StopSurgeryShamingB4IPostThem #Fraud diss records can't be lies. Great diss records are FACTS. But here @ Young Money, we don't do diss records, we drop HIT RECORDS & diss u ON them. I got a bunch more on cock. Pauz. The greats took 3 months to respond to diss records. Queens don't move on peasant time. Queens shut down Paris, then drop hits on #QueenTime. I love my fans. Y'all the real MVP's. Been writing my own raps since I was 11. GOD knows. Next week I'll beat Aretha for the most Hot 100 hits on billboard by ANY woman in the world EVER in the history of music.

Lol my babies, you're gonna get your complete LIFE. love u guys so fkn much. Let's go. #NoFrauds #ChangedIt #RegretInYourTears Reggie Martin and S/O to Lady Luck for spkn facts. They act like they didn't see her interview tho. Lol 😘😘😘😘
A post shared by Nicki Minaj (@nickiminaj) on
On the Eve of Nicki's responses, Remy did an interview expressing how she wish she would've done  things differently when it came to she and Nicki:
After explaining that it was the behind-the-scenes career interference that ultimately pushed her to release “Shether,” she noted that she wishes things could’ve gone differently between her and Minaj. “I actually liked her but don’t try and come for me,” she said. “It just bothers me that me picking apart another female is what went viral. We could’ve done this working together.” When Nigatu asked why that didn’t happen, Remy responded, “It wasn’t me, I just think it would’ve been cooler if we came together and did something crazy and that’s what everyone was talking about. I don’t regret it, I’m just not particularly proud of it.”
Some critics say Remy's rethinking the diss tracks because rumors were swirling that Nicki asked Nas to prevent Remy from performing the song because of his rights to the song's beat which comes from his own diss track, Ether. However, TMZ has found that Nas didn't have an issue with it, Universal did. Basically, they didn't like that Remy took Nas' beat and made money off of it without their permission. So, the song has been taken off of Soundcloud and the radio.
So, Remy had to take a BIGGER L.
So what's your opinion on the beef?
Could these two kiss and make up and come up with a fire record?

J.Lo Moves on to A-Rod

Damn, if that photo above isn't foreshadowing.....I don't know what is.
A match made in aesthetically pleasing and short nickname heaven.
The 47 year old jack-of-all-trades is rumored to be dating the 41 year old former baseball star.
Yeah, we know...he's a little older than who she's been dating lately.
It looks like Drizzy is not in the picture anymore, and was never an official relationship.
According to PEOPLE magazine:
A source confirmed the relationship to PEOPLE, saying the two “have been dating for a few weeks.”
“She seems excited,” a source close to Lopez told PEOPLE. “He has been around her family and she really likes that he is a dad. She is aware, though, that he is a ladies’ man too and is being cautious. For now, it’s just fun. She is single and enjoys dating.”
A rep for Rodriguez had no comment while a rep for Lopez has yet to comment.
Rodriguez, 41, recently ended his relationship with Silicon Valley CEO Anne Wojcicki in February after dating for just under a year. He has previously dated Kate Hudson and Cameron Diaz, among other high profile A-listers.

Welp, even though my dreams of DraLo didn't come true, I support this relationship also.

Justin Timberlake Warms Our Hearts with iHeart Radio Awards Speech

Justin Timberlake's speech at Sunday night's iHeart Radio awards was definitely heart-warming.
Timberlake won Song of the Year for Can't Stop the Feeling (obvi)

During his speech he addresses people who are different especially those within the LGBTQ community.
The speech includes:
“If you’re gay, or you’re lesbian, or you are trans, or maybe you’re just a sissy singer boy from Tennessee — anyone who has treated you unkindly, it’s only because they’re afraid or they have been taught to be afraid of how important you are. Because being different means you make a difference. So, fuck ‘em.”

This speech is so poignant, escpecially in the times we're in right now.

You go, JT!

Sir Rod Stewart Apologizes for Mocking Terrorist Beheading on Instagram

Rod in the white shirt & glasses
This is why you can't give old folks a social media account!
You all know, Rod has a soft-spot in my heart....and in my soul.

According to TMZ
 Sir Rod (and my family's favorite singer) apologized for mocking an ISIS beheading in the desert outside Abu Dhabi.
The video shows Rod, his wife, Penny, and friends climbing a sand dune. One of the friends gets on his knees in front of Rod ... who pretends to cut off the man's head. Penny posted the video ... but deleted it a few hours later, after the immediate backlash started.

The 72 year old issued an apology to The Guardian saying, From re-enacting the Beatles’ Abbey Road crossing to spontaneously playing out Game Of Thrones, we were simply larking about pre-show. 
Understandably, this has been misinterpreted and I send my deepest apologies to those who have been offended.
The scene posted on the 'gram is eerily similar to the many ISIS videos that have circulated on the web.
Some Brits are livid by this video and want Stewart's knighthood taken away from him.
A post shared by Penny Lancaster ( on
Stewart performed in Abu Dhabi as part of his current world tour.
