Fantasia shows off her new hairstyle on Instagram; a nice short do with a strip of platinum blond. She’s had the blond piece for a while, but she takes it to another level this time around with flip and swoop. Fantasia can wear some short hairstyles, in fact I prefer her with short hair.
BTW, have you seen Fantasia’s body lately. She has been doing her thing in the gym…
Countess Vaughn makes a guest appearance on the TV show, The Doctors to discuss her horrifying and unhealthy battle with lace front wigs. I know this sounds comical because we make wig-snatching lace front jokes quite often, but the Meet the Parkers actress, openly shares her side effects of wearing lace front wigs for over five years to maintain a certain look in the industry. Countess Vaughn started wearing lace fronts in 2004:
Five years later the drama came in. The red flag was…the oozing…from my ears, from my forehead, the whole nape around my head. The pus! It had a horrible smell, it was painful. I let this go by for six months. What I didn’t realize is that I had a bad reaction to the glue that I used to apply the wig, so my hair started falling out.
This is hard for me to understand because I’m not in the industry, and I love being natural, but man this should make people want to stay away from gluing hair onto their foreheads. There’s more, Vaughn goes on talk about how the wigs left her discolored and bald. Check out a few pics, plus the video below:
Nicki Minaj has toned down the make-up over the last few days to give us a glimpse of what she’s naturally working with regarding her face. She has been posting pics of Instagram while vacationing in Cabo, and someone notices that Safaree Samuels, Nicki’s beau, is sporting a a huge wedding band on his ring finger, and so is Nicki Minaj.
Now Nicki has been sporting some serious bling on her ring finger for a while now, but this is the first time cameras have caught a glimpse of Safaree’s wedding band. I think it’s best to keep things private in Hollywood, especially if you want to make it last, so in the mean time when have plenty of pics of Nicki Minaj enjoying the Cabo sun.
It was just last month Nicki Minaj took to Instagram to show off her “long hair don’t care” from the set of her “Looking Ass N*gga” music video. Now she has some new pics of her real hair, along with a fresh face as it looks like she is fresh out of the shower.

Naomi Campbell has been seen all over the place rocking a new do. Naomi is sporting an Afro wig, and it looks good on her, IMO. She has been making her rounds promoting the new season of The Face premiering March 5th on Oxygen.
Naomi Campbell and this new Afro unit have been seen on The View, The Graham Norton Show, and apparently Naomi has had some time to hang with NeNe Leakes, too.
Ms. Campbell is kind of giving us Lauryn Hill from back in the day with this wig. There isn’t much Naomi can’t wear or pull it off. Check out more photos of Naomi Campbell, NeNe Leakes and the wig…
I am sure you’re all around a water cooler somewhere discussing the big win last night. Lupita Nyong’o graciously added the title Academy Award Winner to her resume last night when she took home the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress. As soon as her name was called I felt my eyes watering, and of course when she started speaking I couldn’t hold back the tears. I don’t know what was so magical about the moment exactly, but it felt like the first time ever that a black woman has won the honor of Best Supporting Actress, although it’s not. Maybe it’s the way she graces the red carpet, and seeing another standard of beauty before my eyes. Or maybe it’s the fact that dreams really do come true, or as she said in her acceptance speech, that they are “valid”.
Lupita Nyong’o wins an Oscar for her first role straight out of Yale; that’s rare in and of itself. So maybe it’s because she looks like Cinderella and we’re all witnesses to her first dance at the ball:
When I look down at this golden statue, may it remind me and every little child that no matter where you’re from, your dreams are valid. Thank you.
Check out the full speech when you continue reading, and let me know your thoughts on the win, and it felt surreal to you:
