There has been great debate over whether or not Beyonce is a feminist because of how she dresses, or that her performances can be overly sexual objectifying women. These debates are petty distractions from the main point of feminism. What is lost in these debate is the fact that Beyonce has just written a check for $500,000 to actually empower the lives of girls and young women globally.
The check is a donation to Chime for Change, a non-profit organization celebrating its one year anniversary. Beyonce co-founded the organization with actress Selma Hayek and Gucci designer Frida Giannini. The aim of Chime is to:
Focus on using innovative approaches to raise funds and awareness for projects promoting Education, Health and Justice for girls and women. To date, we’ve rallied support
Summer is here and our favorite starlets are letting their beach bodies shine (bright like a diamond). The trend this week is most certainly ‘less is more’ in the world of fashion as both Nicki Minaj and Rihanna stepped out in the last 24 hours leaving little to the imagine.
Last night on stage at the Hot 97 Summer Jam in New York Minaj’s bosoms were on ‘Massive Attack’ in a sheer, metallic chainmail crop top. The Pills N Potions rapper gave fans a full view of everything as the top layed above silver, star-shaped pasties.
Tonight Ri Ri perhaps even outdid Ms. Minaj by showing up to the CFDA Fashion Awards Monday night at New York’s Lincoln Center in a completely sheer dress from head to toe, from font to back.
The only thing that was covered up was her head! The revealing number was designed by Adam Selman and contains 216,000 Swarovski crystals. You must know, the CFDA Awards are very much considered the ”Oscars of fashion,” a place where risks are often celebrated and Rihanna most definitely has secured her nomination as a ‘fashion risk-taker’. Check out more photos below of the two divas:
Seems like it would be a good thing to have a celebrity crash your wedding, especially if the celebrity is Serena Williams, but perhaps not in a leopard leotard swimsuit…that will upstage the bride. Well…actually that’s still pretty cool. This South Beach couple will certainly have memories and something to talk about on their wedding anniversary, especially when they look back and see pictures like this one.
Yes this is real, Serena Williams and her butt cheeks crashed this couples wedding in Miami, and posted about on Instagram. More pics when you continue reading below:
I know you’ve noticed that I haven’t covered ANY of the Kimye Wedding Palooza. I wish them the best of luck, and happiness in a very hard industry to stay happy. I pray all of the money is well spent with many years to come. On an even more positive note, I LOVE Kim’s wedding dress by Riccardo Tisci of Givenchy. The bride looks gorgeous, and the dress is simply beautiful.
That’s all I’m saying and writing about his here’n wedding. More pics below when you continue reading…Staying positive, yes I am…
I honestly have not written a lot about the infamous elevator fight because the media has gone overboard milking this story for everything it’s NOT worth. Making up scenarios just so people can have something to read about Beyonce, Solange, and Jay-Z; it’s too much. Secondly, there is a huge double standard when it comes to violence when the woman is the abuser. Somehow people found Solange’s actions funny. Lastly, all families fight, maybe not quite like this, but conflict is a normal part of being in a relationship.
But what is really bothering me is the extent to which Beyonce is going to control her image. Let it go! I never thought that the Knowles-Carter family was perfect, I just thought they were private. I don’t believe anyone is perfect. Now that some of their very private moments have been leaked, which in my opinion humanizes them, they are now going to extremes to
The Dream (Terius Youngdell Nash) is under investigation for domestic abuse. His baby-mama, Lydia Nam, claims the singer/producer choked, punched, and dragged her by the hair while pregnant in a fit of rage back in April of 2013. Because she waited so long to file charges many people feel like she’s lying to avoid being deported to Canada on an expired visa, or at least that’s what The Dream is arguing. The Dream claims he’s never laid a hand on her, but after these pics surfaced today, it may not have been The Dream, but someone definitely did a number on Lydia Nam while she was seven months pregnant.
The photos are from a few months back, just a day after she claims she was assaulted by The Dream. You can see scratches and choke marks, bruises on the arms and legs, along with scratches across the face. According to Lydia Nam, the reason she did not come forward sooner is because she was terrified of The Dream. Now I know some women will go to extremes, but her photos line up with her statement. I definitely can’t see a seven month old pregnant woman putting herself in danger like this just to set up a man months later. Check out her account below:
