Rihanna to Launch Fenty Beauty Line This Fall

A “new generation of beauty” is upon us. After taking the music, fashion, TV, film, and jewelry worlds by storm, Rihanna is set to launch her long-awaited cosmetics line, Fenty Beauty, this fall.

RiRi’s latest endeavor, which will be released under LVMH’s Kendo Brands, follows in the footsteps of the company’s cosmetics lines by Marc Jacobs and Kat Von D.

“You ready?” Rihanna tweeted today (May 31). “@fentybeauty new generation of beauty… coming this FALL! I can’t fuckin wait for fall !!!”

Earlier this year, LVMH announced the reported $10 million partnership. “Fenty Beauty by Rihanna is a beauty rocket ship that will appeal to a huge and diverse global audience,” said David Suliteanu, Kendo’s CEO. “We are aiming for the stars.”

RiRi is no stranger to the cosmetics world. In 2013, she also partnered with M.A.C on a limited edition collection and the following year, she worked with Viva Glam for AIDS research funding.

It’s been a productive year for the Harvard Humanitarian of the Year. She recently received an honor from the Parsons School of Design, released a new Fenty x Puma collection, and launched a jewelry collection with Chopard.

New Music: Zaytoven feat. Twista, Bankroll Fresh, & Yung LA – ‘Pose To’

In partnership with Cartoon Network’s programming block and its “Adult Swim Singles” series, Atlanta super-producer Zaytoven unleashes his latest banger, “Pose To.”

The star-studded track features Twista, Yung LA, and the late Bankroll Fresh over Zay’s thumping production. “We ain’t really wanna have to hurt them guys,” raps Twista with his trademark rapid-fire delivery. “Until they came in with the hoodies on, and we had to leave them ni**as circumcised.”

“Pose To” is part of a 52-week-long “Singles” initiative, which allows fans to stream the tracks for free. Adult Swim’s creative director Jason DeMarco recently spoke to The Verge about the series, which has ditched the download option for the first time this year.

“We’re doing something no one else does,” DeMarco said. “I don’t know why they don’t do it. Maybe they don’t want to, or maybe no one is motivated enough to do it. But it’s been seven years, no one else is doing it, and I get the feeling that no one else is going to.”

As for Zaytoven, the producer is currently working on his debut album, Trap Holizay, which he spoke with Rap-Up about last month. “I’ve been thinking about doing an album for years,” he said. “It was all about timing for me. I never felt like I had to press the issue to do it before now, but now, I feel like I’m at one of the highest points I’ve ever been in in my career, so I feel like now is the perfect time to do it.”

New Music: Chief Keef – ‘Going Home’

Chief Keef is “Going Home.”

With his latest release, the Glory Boy gives fans some insight into his text message conversations.

“Baby momma text me at 5:18,” he raps. “Bad bitch text me at 6:16 / By 7 a.m., she was licking me / Why she send these kissy face emojis to my phone? / She digging hard on a ni**a ’cause I’m going strong.”

Produced by CBMix and Hollywood J, “Going Home” follows Chief’s Tyga collaboration “100s,” which dropped last month.

Keef hasn’t released an album since 2015’s Nobody 2, but he did unleash his new mixtape Two Zero One Seven at the top of 2017. Coming up, Sosa is set to release his THOT Breaker project on June 9.

Tiny Confronts T.I. About ‘Infidelities’ on ‘Family Hustle’ Finale

T.I. and Tiny put their relationship troubles on display in the final episode of “The Family Hustle,” their long-running VH1 reality program.

During the series finale on Monday (May 29), Tiny confronted Tip about his alleged infidelity. “You started cheating,” she told him. “Yes, sir.”

In a confessional video, Tiny elaborated: “For those who don’t understand, Tip had some infidelities with a girl who I hired and that girl is one of the reasons why I got my own house,” she explained.

But the allegations flew from both sides. “You was out with this dude who you know I don’t fuck with,” he said. “You was at his house.”

After their explosive argument, Tiny discussed their apparent separation. “I think that we have things that make us a little different,” she said. “I think there are things that happen along the way — life, growth — that change a person.”

As part of the episode, Tip also spoke on the changes that they’ve experienced throughout the years. “At some point, you grew to this point and I grew to this point,” he said. “I don’t think it’s either of our fault. So, ultimately, ain’t nothing else to do but split.”

Tiny filed for divorce in December of 2016. Since then, whispers of a reconciliation have been debunked as infidelity rumors grew. T.I. has been linked to model Bernice Burgos, while Tiny has been linked to boxer Floyd Mayweather.

As part of the finale, Tip seemed to indicate that the marriage is over now. “A part of me is happy to close this chapter,” he said. “I feel we outgrew each other. She grew in a different direction and I did too.”

To cap off the series, the estranged couple toasted to a new beginning as friends.

Trump Tweets "Covfefe," Instantly Becomes the Biggest Joke of the Year

It is well known that President Trump uses Twitter as an outlet to get around what he deems “fake news”, often times releasing important information and responding to critics on the social media platform. It would seem that this formula has backfired once again, this time with an idiotic tweet last night. “Despite the constant negative press covfefe,” the tweet read, and that it. It ended so abruptly, many believe it to be a mistake from Mr. Twitter fingers himself.

Needless to say, the internet exploded with hundreds of thousands of retweets within a few hours. Check out the tweet and the hilarious reactions in the gallery.

7 Superstitions You Should Be Aware Of

It’s no secret that Wendy is a little superstitious.

• Don’t ever split a pole when you’re walking with someone. Wendy follows that rule.

• Wendy’s worn her flower ring for every show since the six-week sneak peek.

• Chewing gum before every show and saving it? Well, that ritual stopped back in season 7.

There are tons of superstitions out there. Here are some that you should definitely be aware of!

Never take an old broom along when you move
Legend has it that an old broom carries more than just old dust and dirt. It also carries all of the negative aspects of your life from your previous home. Out with the old, and in with the new!

Catch a falling leaf on the first day of autumn for good health
Autumn is a beautiful time of year to be outside and enjoy the colors, and the cool breeze. After the leaves fall and the winter sets in, cue chronic winter colds! Catch a falling leaf on the first day of autumn and you won’t catch a cold all winter!

Don’t stir anything using a knife
We’ve all been there. You get your morning tea and you sit down for your morning dose of Hot Topics. All you have in front of you is a fork and a knife for your breakfast. So, you decide to stir your tea with a knife. Don’t do it! There is a saying that goes, “stir with a knife and stir up strife.” Someone in your life, maybe even you, will become angry, or have a disagreement with someone. Nobody wants that.

A cricket in the house is a good thing
For whatever reason, a cricket usually decides to start chirping away as soon as your head hits the pillow. This prompts you to go into a frenzy trying to find said cricket so you can catch some shut eye. Next time, let the cricket be. As far back as 500 B.C., crickets have been a symbol of wisdom and prosperity. Let the cricket chirp all night, then play the lottery in the morning.

Lock eyes with the person you are clinking glasses with during a toast
Shout out to all of our French Wendy watchers! This superstition is widely known in France, as well as other parts of Europe. Locking eyes with someone during a toast is an indication of sincerity to what you’re toasting. It’s also customary to clink glasses with each person individually, without crossing arms with anyone. What happens if you don’t do these things, you might be wondering? Apparently, seven years of bad sex.

Hope the first butterfly you see this year is white
There’s lots of symbolism that comes with butterflies throughout the years. Luckily, most of them are good. Even luckier, would be a white butterfly, which symbolizes spiritual purity. If the first butterfly of the New Year you see is white, you’ll have good luck all year. We assume this superstition works best in warmer climates. For those of us that have to deal with the brutal winter, you’ll have to wait until spring to find your good luck butterfly.

Never place your purse on the floor
Ladies, we know it’s more convenient to place your purse on the ground, rather than in your lap. Aside from the fact that the floor is filthy, you’ll most likely lose money in the near future if you leave it on the ground. Honestly, you’ll be lucky you don’t forget the purse altogether! Placing your purse on the ground is essentially like giving your money away. We could all use some more cash.

What superstitions do you have in your life?
