Ok Go always has the best music videos and their latest for ” I Won’t Let You Down” is amazing. The video is synchronized with dancers and weird scooter/unicycle things. The video was also shot with a DRONE!?!? Talk about cray cray. I think this video was shot somewhere in Asia. Groove to this song during your work week and into your weekend.
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!
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.
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.
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.
Beyonce rocks the wet hair look at the Grammy’s. You may remember the drenched bob look from her Drunk in Love video. She brought it back when she performed the song with her husband Jay-z as they opened last night Grammy’s. I know that some people are on the fence about the look. (more…)
Chromeo announces new tour and single with Toro y Moi. Do you know how pumped I am? I love both of these bands so much. They both have a vintage 70s/80s influenced style, and that style is delightfully played out in this song. This is going to be one of my treadmill songs. I can tell that already. I am bummed that the tour is coming close to me but will still be hours away. Whatever. Maybe I can figure out a way to make it anyway. Photo from ONTD.
There will be sporadic posts this week since I am moving, and I am trying to get my internet connected. Pray for me y’all!
Queen Bey! King Bey! Whatever you call her, she has outdone herself. Beyonce sold 1 million albums in 1 week of her new hit “Beyonce”. The album came as a surprise to everyone when it was released last Friday at midnight with 14 songs and 17 videos. The visual album even has casual Beyonce fans and non-Beyonce fans buying the iTunes exclusive in droves. Kudos to Beyonce. She has clearly slayed the game in ways none of us could imagine. Beyonce is the G.O.A.T.! Photo from here.
Rock star and super mom-who may or may not be pregnant with her third child-Gwen Stefani created a nail polish collection with OPI. The collection was inspired by the recent punk themed Met Gala and will be out in January. I can’t wait to get my hands on some these nail polishes. I love these colors and really, really can’t wait for the gold and black satin colors. I think they are kind of matte-like or semi-matte. I’m pretty excited for those polishes, but I suppose I am also excited to see the colors that were covered up on the photo. They have a few creme gloss polishes, and supposedly some chrome one too! What are you looking forward to seeing in this collection? Photos from here.
Lady Gaga is going to cover the October 2013 issue of Elle magazine. She looks awesome in her blond and pink wig! I can’t wait for Artpop to come out. I needed that album like yesterday. Photo from here.
Lady Gaga stars on four V Magazine covers this week with four corresponding editorials that represent her as the David Bowie fan, her in her current state, her in the past, and her as Donatella Versace. The pop star also released her new single “Applause” early, or maybe she leaked it. Anyway. Gaga will be preforming at the MTV VMA’s at the end of August, so prepare for the media onslaught that is about to happen. Photo from ONTD.
Last night’s Met Gala 2013 theme was basically punk rock, and most of the best dressed at the Met Gala took the theme to another level. While most fashionistas were not interested in the theme, I think the punk theme was a great opportunity for the various attendees and designers to show off their creative side. Not every Met Gala attendee always follows the theme, and some end up looking great even though they didn’t follow the theme, but I think it helps to at least try.
While I think there were a lot of best dressed picks to choose from these women really stood out to me. I love the Stella McCartney jumpsuit that Kristen Stewart wore. Miley Cyrus looked the most punked out in her glittery mesh Marc Jacob dress and spiked hair. Rooney Mara was divine in Givenchy and Donatella Versace just looked amazing. Also who is her plastic surgeon? I think she got a new one because she has been looking a lot better lately.
Madonna and Beyonce were the queens of the night in Givenchy. Madonna looked like a punk pin-up and Beyonce looked very Baroque inspired with her corset and making skirt and boot. Coco Rocha gave a very punk turn in an animal printed and feathered Ungaro gown and Jennifer Lopez let her curves do the talking in a Michael Kors dress. Photo from Fashionista.
Miley Cyrus’ transformation from teeny bopper Disney star to adult woman is complete as she poses for an editorial and sits down for an interview with V Magazine. I’ve been a fan of Miley for a number of years now. I don’t know if this new look and new attitude is contrived like every other celebrity in Hollywood’s look is contrived, but I like it. I think she has had one of the most seamless transitions from child star to adult we have seen in the last few years. The rest of the editorial and snippets of the interview are worth taking a look at. Check them out here on Fashionista’s website.
*Don’t forget that both of these contests end in a few hours!
After I saw Beyonce perform “Grown Woman” in Kenzo last week on the internet, I knew I had to find my closet some kind of something that had that Kenzo look without the Kenzo price. Sawry…this girl’s on a budget! Imagine my surprise when I saw the Printed Wedge Sandal from the Gap in these really cute and funky colors. Gap you really do come through! The wedges are $59.95, but you can get 35% off is you use code GAP35. Y’all better run and get these Printed Wedge Sandals! Photo from here.
