We seriously root for Mama Tina around these parts. So we were elated to learn that only had she married her manfriend, actor Richard Lawson, her granddaughter Blue Ivy was the one that encouraged the idea. Too precious!

And while we wish that we were invited to all events hosted by the Knowles (and Knowles-Lawson) women, that’s just not the way of the world…yet. So, us nosy folks have to take what we can get. And in this case, it’s exclusive photos from People magazine. 

First, there’s this one above, which Solange Knowles posted on her IG and you can check out the rest on the following pages.

Since the stabbing, Solange has been by Armina’s side every step of the way. She reportedly dropped everything she was doing to be there for Armina. The two co-own a clothing boutique in NOLA.

 

 

Support Your Sister: Black Women Come To Zendaya’s Defense

black women come to zendaya's defense feat

Though Giuliana Rancic’s apology last night seemed sincere and heartfelt to me, there are still some who are refusing to accept it. But more importantly, other Black women in the limelight who stepping forward to show their support and solidarity.

First, there was fellow loced sister Selma director Ava DuVernay, who wrote this under Zendaya’s initial open letter.

Then “Scandal” actress Kerry Washington commended Zendaya on her open letter to Giuliana.

And finally, Solange spoke about the ways in which the show had been speaking about the fro on the red carpets for years. And she even referenced the time In Touch Weekly compared her hair to a dog. That didn’t go unnoticed. In true Solange fashion, she provided the perfect response for it.

India Arie even released a “Songversation” about this whole thing. See what she said. 


I wanted to jump in and defend Zendaya – but she’s doing that BEAUTIFULLY  herself.

VERY. WELL.  DONE.  It’s a powerful thing to be a TEENAGER in the public eye, and feel empowered to speak up in your own defense. STUNNING!

In my opinion, Entitlement in and of itself, BLINDS people to that very entitlement …  THUS allowing the behavior exhibited.

I’m not calling Giuliana Rancic a RACIST, .. but OF COURSE  it has to do with RACE.   To say it has “Nothing to do with race” .. THAT’S why people get mad.

But lets remember HOW difficult it is for a person of Gullianna Ranci’s social context to really UNDERSTAND how we see race in this issue. How race is a pervasive ISSUE in the entertainment industries as a whole.

We  need more more compassion in this world. Period

So I’m not MAD at Giuliana Rancic I’m SAD at her.  I’m Sad that things LIKE THIS keep happening.

It’s Hollywood’s biggest night, and while black folks might not have picked up many nominations (Selma is nominated in the Best Picture category, and “Glory” is nominated for Best Original Song), I was quite surprised to see how many of our stars showed up for the the big ceremony. What are they looking like? I have all their looks for you to see, and talk about, here. So who looked amazing and who didn’t? Let’s chat!

Lupita Nyong’o

In a custom Calvin Klein gown, Lupita returned to the Academy Awards red carpet a year after winning. Her heavily adorned pearl dress with its open back and keyhole detail is one-of-a-kind, and she definitely looks one-of-a-kind on the carpet. And while I like what they’ve tried to with her hair recently, I actually prefer this close, cropped and curled look. Steal!

Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi

When we were first introduced to Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, she was the consistently drunk, tan-obsessed, hair-hump wearing resident of “The Jersey Shore.” All these years later, she has eased up big time on the spray tans, stopped her partying ways, fell in love, had two kids and walked down the aisle. Snooki grew up big time, and her style did as well!

The internet may have told you that yesterday little Blue Ivy Carter turned 3. Of course there were hyperbolic comments made about her being heir to the throne, slideshows featuring Blue’s most adorable public moments, even some really entertaining illustrations, like this one:

But one of the greatest birthday tributes came Blue Blue’s auntie Solange.

But I’ll save the best for last. Before that, Beyoncé posted a picture of Blue Ivy’s birthday set up, complete with an ice sculpture. Check it out.

Solange is not only upset with the Ferguson case outcome, but she has joined in the protests by postponing the release of her latest Puma collection.

“Solange Knowles is keeping her word when it comes to fighting for the justice of Michael Brown, who was shot dead by Officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson, St. Louis,” reports GlobalGrind.

Solange’s sneaker for Puma that was scheduled for Black Friday. Many Ferguson protests have called for consumers to stay home and not shop.

This would have marked the second collection Solange has done for Puma. The first, Girls of Blaze collection, debuted this past February, was successful. Solange first drop in the latest collection for Puma is called Wild Wonder and for it the singer/style trendsetter worked with the previous collection’s original designers Gerlan Marcel, Hisham Bharoocha and sister duo Darlene and Lizzy Okpo.

Wild Wonder features three styles that were to be released on November 28th. The second drop will be Behind the Bazaar collection, featuring two styles, will be released on December 13th.

“The two drops that make up this collection couldn’t be more different from one another but the commonality between the two is texture. I really wanted to focus on maximizing different textures to their fullest potential. This process was a bit more intense than the Girls of Blaze because we took a lot of risk, and created a lot of tweaks to get it right. The thing that I love about these two drops is you see the evolution of my personal style from the first collection into the second one. I love them both so much for totally different reasons,” Solange told Saint Heron.

Solange is looking for the new collection to surpass the first collection’s success. “When I got the call that the shoes sold out in an hour from my friends at OC, I was so so damn overjoyed. I honestly am most proud of how organic the entire process was from start to finish, from everything from working with friends to create the shoes, my husband shooting the campaign locally, premiering them at one of my best friends’ store. I think the fact that it never once felt like work made it all the more magical. It truly was a natural reflection of just a bunch of awesome, incredibly talented friends all working together to do something we all dug, so the fact that people dug it so much was the icing on the cake!,” she said.

But for now, justice obviously more on Solange’s mind than sneaker sales.
