Friday night, millions of pedestrians around the globe witnessed giant projections of Kanye West singing his latest song titled 'New Slaves' on the face of buildings. West, who is no stranger to controversy went with this genius guerilla marketing tactic in efforts to promote the tune which is on his new album ‘Yeezus' set to be released June 18th, 2013.
Allow me to introduce you to someone that you probably don’t care about. Her name is Lil’ Debbie: a pint-sized Oakland, California native of Italian descent who is known as a former member of White Girl Mob with Kreayshawn and V-Nasty. In other words, she was an extra in Kreayshawn’s highly annoying yet popular music video Gucci Gucci in 2011. Initially I dismissed Lil Debbie and her crew as simply a mockery to hip-hop, more specifically a mockery of America’s stereotypical image of the ‘ghetto’ Black female. However, curiosity piqued my interest thanks to the popular page on Instagram. One click lead me to her account and the rest is history.
If you've ever wanted to live vicariously through queen Beysus, now is your time. Today, Beyonce launched an online shop complimenting her Mrs Carter World Tour for fans to snag seriously snazzy concert merchandise. At the site you'll discover an amazingly styled selection of graphic t-shirts, hoodies, tote bags, and snap-back hats for him and her worth cherishing for a lifetime. I'm sure these pieces will sell like hot cakes being that graphic tees are au courant this season and well.......its Beyonce! More merchandise images and prices after the jump.
Hi ladies! Its been a few weeks since I last blogged but your girl is immersed in academics right now so Beauty & The Street was on the back burner. However, I just had to pop in and give my two cents about this year's Met Gala. It's unconventional theme Punk: Chaos to Couture brought out a plethora of creative looks that you wouldn't typically find at this annual event. There were plenty surprises -- both good and bad, but I have to ask......what was up with Kim Kardashian's sofa dress? Beyonce also confused me with her matching hot wheels dress and boots combo. Despite a few tragedies though, there were really great hits like Chanel Iman's elegant stripes and cornrowed faux hawk (this hairdo takes me back to junior high!) and Anne Hathaway's bleached pixie. View my favorite looks of the evening after the jump.
