Tkay Maidza, the awesome18 year old Zimbabwean-Australian rapper from Adelaide, is taking the world by storm. If you are tired of listening to other Australian rappers cough, cough try listing to her mixtape aptly named Switch Tape. Her song “U-huh”, seen in the video above, is a really hot and catchy song that will have you grooving and moving into the weekend. Check out this song and the mixtape and thank me later. Check out Tkay Maidza’s Switch Tape mixtape below. (more…)
This week I bring you the new video from Arca for his song “Thievery.” So I am dropping the video below the cut just because it is NSFW. The song comes from his soon to be released album “Zen.” If you aren’t sure of who he is, he recently produced songs for Kanye West. I also just heard about two weeks ago that he is producing some songs on Bjork’s new album. SO EXCITING!!
Do you see Nicki Minaj for L’Uomo Vogue? The hit rapper is on the cover of the October issue, and despite the cigarette everything looks great. I love these wigs/haircuts on her. They are a little different for her, but they also looks very chic on her and frame her face. (more…)
I am in the middle of a very busy finals week, so I think I deserve a dance break. Here is the new video from French pop star Yelle. Her new song is called Complètement fou. Watch her dance around glitter popcorn, try to duck walk with some voguers, and straddle a giant piece of corn. Enjoy!
Look at Beyonce. Look at her. Beyonce is giving me fall wardrobe inspiration in one photo. I love the long boyfriend coat, the black jeans, and the heels. I am looking for the perfect pair of black heels for the fall. Hopefully I can find them soon. I also want to learn how to make me a coat like the one she is wearing a with a funky print. Ahh! It is almost time for fall. Photo from here.
Kendall Jenner covers Teen Vogue for their September issue, and she looks gorgeous. I love these images of her because they show what a great model she has become. The cover story is really great too. I think you all should read it. It gives you a little bit of insight into her life as an up and coming model. Check the story and few more photos here.
Janelle Monae releases the Electric Lady music video and the internet goes wild. Janelle Monae is so talented. I love this video because it reminds me of my days in college when I had just pledged Delta and I went to the Greek parties with my sorority sisters. I loved watching the party hops, and seeing people jamming in a super cool house. I loved Janelle’s rocking fro. I can’t wait until my hair grows that big. Did you see the woman playing Janelle’s mom in the beginning of the video? That was actually her mom. I love this video.
Have you seen the Lupita Nyong’o for Lancome ads? It feels so good to see a woman of color, and a dark skinned one at that, in a makeup ad. Women of color have few options for make up and little to no representation in cosmetic ad campaigns. This is such a wonderful ad and Lupita looks gorgeous…as usual. Photo from here.
P.S. Did you see her new Vogue cover and spread? They came out while I was on vacation and they look amazzzzzing! Check them out here!
Givenchy recently released their fall 2014 ad campaign and now Riccardo Tisci has the models dance in a new video for Givenchy. Kendall Jenner, Julia Nobis, Mariacarla Boscono,the Bryant Brothers, and Jamie Bochert dance to tunes by the Martinez Brothers. The collection is full of natural earth tones and neutrals with some animal print and jewel tones mixed in.
The Olsen twins rocked the Met Gala on Monday night. Both Mary-Kate and Ashley wore vintage Chanel, and were one a just a few people that really followed the actual theme for the night that was based on designer Charles James. I know you don’t necessarily have to follow the theme, but I do wish more of the men wore white tie (tuxedo with tails and a top hat) like the invitation instructed, and I think a lot of the ladies could have worn more ball gowns.
Of all the times to show up in a big poofy ball gown, this was it. I did however like Cara Delevigne’s pants situation. Charles James’ garments always tripped me out because I could never figure out how they were constructed. He was the genius that influenced Dior’s New Look.

Rihanna goes nude for Lui Magazine and Vogue Brasil. The island gyal is no stranger to nudity, since she is always half naked in her Instagram shots, but even a cease and desist letter from the phone app will stop her from posting the skin pics. She reposted them to Twitter. I see you Rhi Rhi using a work around. Photos from Idolator and Global Grind.
Lupita Nyong’o is People Magazine’s Most Beautiful Person of 2014 and she got to chop it up with model Alek Wek in this super awesome video. Alek Wek is her beauty icon, so it was great to see her chit chat with her and share a genuine sisterhood moment with her. Check it out above!
Lupita Nyong’o rocks the May Cover of Marie Claire magazine along with four other actresses-Kate Mara, Emilia Clarke, Elizabeth Olsen. Lupita looks so good on this cover. She is beautiful and bright. Her smile says it all. The pink dress looks great against her skin and her natural high top hairstyle is super cute! I love it! Fashionista has the rest of the photos. Photo from Fashionista.com.
OOhh my favorite natural hair gals Solange, Erykah Badu, and Ledisi cover the May 2014 issue of Essence Magazine! They look so amazing. I love the fact that the magazine made this a triple cover issue, and chose these fantastic women. I love their hair, I love them, I love the covers. So beautiful! I am going to put some behind the scenes videos below. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. I am trying to finish up spring break. I wish it could last for another week. Photos from here. (more…)
Have you seen the pictures of Rihanna and Lupita Nyong’o at the Miu Miu fashion show in Paris? They looked amazing. I am so glad they got to sit next to each other so we could see their beautiful outfits. Rihanna has been sizzling all over Paris during fashion week. Her outfits or lack there of have been the talk of the town, and Lupita just won an Oscar. I hope we see a lot more from her in the future. Photo from Rihannadiva’s Instagram.
