Erykah Badu Named the new Face of Givenchy

Badu recently appeared on an episode of Real Husbands of Hollywood.

Badu recently appeared on an episode of Real Husbands of Hollywood.

One of the top designers of the decade, Givenchy has named Dallas’ own Erykah Badu as the spokesmodel for their Spring/Summer 2014 campaign.

Designer Riccardo Tisci chose the icon of natural black beauty to represent his upcoming Africa-meets-Japan themed collection.

“Erykah, she’s an icon—come on!” Tisci told “She’s one of the most stylish women I’ve met in my life. She’s got such a good sense of proportion, of colors.”

Tisci’s whole collection will feature women of color, despite setbacks like the Barney’s (which carries the brand) racial discrimination scandal earlier this year.

Phaedra Announces That her and Apollo…

On Dec 2, while on the Bethenny Frankel Show, RHOA co-star Phaedra Parks assured fans that her marriage with husband Apollo Nida is “just fine.”

But she also said that definitely thought that her husband was wrong for even entertaining (and texting) co-star Kenya Moore.

“Two inappropriate people acting inappropriately,” is what she called it.

On Dec 12, housewife Cynthia Bailey spoke her opinion about the whole situation on the Bethenny show.

“Obviously, enough happened to for it to get to this point. Kenya definitely insinuated…I’m excited for Phaedra to just “kill it” and move on,” she added.

FYI, Cynthia also assurred us that her thyroid problems “are behind her now,” and her and husband Peter are back having sex “constantly.” Peter looked really amused. lol

Is Julia Roberts Hiding a Baby Bump?

After a couple suspicious pics surfaced online this week, rumors are that Pretty Woman star Julia Roberts is pregnant. Most recently, while with her hubby Danny Moder’s parents home, her belly looked quite pudgy, or maybe even…round. Maybe the star (whose 46)  has just put on a few pounds since she’s not in the public eye as much, but her clothing (recently) has been baggy. And earlier in the week, she actually walked onto the stage at the 2013 BAFTA L.A. Awards (with George Clooney) barefoot! not to mention she was in a baby doll dress. Inside joke maybe? I guess we’ll know soon.

This Year’s Grammy Noms

Jay-Z left the building with the most nominations this year, finally! Nine Nominations for Magna Carter, Holy Grail. Meanwhile, Kanye West’s  New Slaves was nominated for Best Rap Song, and his critically-praised  Yeezus was nominated for Best Rap Album (produced by Dallas’ own Symbolc 1,)  althought it was shut out for Album of Year.

Rihanna was nominated for Best Urban Album.

Next in line was Ryan Lewis and Macklemore who killed it with seven nominations for their song Thrift Shop, which is the first song from an independent label to reach No. 1 in 20 years. Justin Timberlake got seven noms for The 20/20 Experience, although he didn’t get a nom for Album of the Year. 

Keith Urban was one of the performers at The GRAMMY Nominations Concert Live! He did  a cover of Bill Withers’ Ain’t No Sunshine alongside R&B singer Miguel.  Urban’s album is No. 1 in three countries and he left with a nod in the Best Country Duo/Group Performance category for Highway Don’t Care, his collaboration with Tim McGraw and Taylor Swift. Swift performed via satellite while on her Red Tour in Australia. The country star scored four nominations, including  Album of the Year, Best Country Album, Best Country Song (Begin Again) and Best Country Duo/Group Performance (Highway Don’t Care). and Katy Perry did her bit live from Toronto And of course, got noms for Roar. Robin Thicke only left with three nominations for Blurred Lines, but gave a great performance with T.I. (No Miley Cyrus this time.)  The most anticipated performance of the night was Lorde singing her song Royal, although she seemed quite ackward onstage. However, she received four noms for the song. Youngster Mack Wilds was also nominated for his single Own It, which we love! Fantasia also received a Best R&B Song nom for Bittersweet. But none for Ciara, as usual.

Surprisingly, neither of Miley’s singles were nominated, maybe with good reason.

Even With Features Janelle Monae Holds her own on new “Electric Lady”


If you know the fresh, yet nostalgic talent that is Janelle Monae, you know that an album packed with A-list producers and artists is not necessary. But with production and features from Miguel, Erykah Badu, Solange Knowles, Big Boi, Cee-Lo Green, Esperanza Spaulding and the ultimate musical genius that is none other than Prince, her sophomore album Electric Lady is a confident, thought provoking, groovy rocket launch to planet JM.

Lucky us, we’ve already heard Electric Lady, which hits store shelves on Sept 10. Our favorites include the undaunting, girly anthem Queen ft. Erykah Badu, the soulfully sweet title track ft. Solange Knowles and Primetime, the whimsical, yet funky love song ft. Miguel. And damn… that’s only the first three songs of the double CD.

Check out our recent conversation with Miss Monae below:

How will we get to know you better on Electric Lady?

You have to listen…There are lots of different subjects [ on the album.] I talk about politics, religion, sexuality, empowerment, community . I speak about those being marginalized. And I have some amazing guest artists to help me get all these ideas out. I collaborated with Erykah Badu; One of my best friends and I love her so much. I collaborated with Miguel, Esperanza Spaulding, Solange Knowles and my musical hero, Prince.

Primetime ft. Miguel is such a funky song that reminds us of the early ’80s and groups like The Revolution. Did you have Miguel in mind for the song?

I did. I’ve been a big fan of Miguel and he’s been a big fan of mine. So it was very mutual and organic for us to work together. And I just wanted to make sure the song was ‘the’ song. So when I wrote the song, it was just great for him to follow my lead and let me produce him. I flew out to L.A. and we worked. It was a great and amazing experience.

Although you have a signature look, it seems like you get a kick out of almost playing other characters and therefore expressing your style and beauty via those representations. What do you have in store for your fans and those that like to keep track of your fashion and different looks?

You’ll just have to wait. I can never tell people what I’m thinking. I always have to just do it!

Rihanna to Play Role of Josephine Baker?

Producer W Lance Williams believes the pop princess would bring the role to life. Of course she possesses the raw sexuality and vivacious persona of the 20’s icon, we’re not too sure RiRi could pull off the acting or Bakers’s European accent.

Kanye West to Perform on SNL season Finale

But don’t expect him to participate in any skits. Ben Affleck is the host this Saturday. And of course Yeezy had some choice words for SNL… That’s means a rant!

“[I had a friend ask me, ‘Are you gonna go on] SNL and you’re going to do like a skit about the paparazzi and shit and like humanize yourself?’ I ain’t here to apologize to no motherf—ers man,” West reportedly said, according to Complex.

“Hell nah I ain’t doing no motherf—ing SNL skits, this my goddamn life. This ain’t no motherf—ing joke. That’s it. Stop that s— right there.”

Has Jay Electronica Bitten off More Than he can Chew? Breaks up the World’s Most Powerful Couple?

This has got to be the weirdest and most inconceivable headline taking over Twitter and now the whole web. But it is in fact, very true.

Somehow… New Orleans rapper Jay Electronica has ignited this extremely rich and POWERFUL couple’s divorce, which is taking the social media network by storm. Now this is some real BEEF y’all.

The rapper has come between one of the biggest British Aristocrat couples in the world, Ben Goldsmith and Kate Rothschild.

In case you keep abreast of the Illuminati circles on the web, you know what conspiracy theorists and New World Order experts believe that the Rothschild banking family controls THE WORLD’s wealth.

Anyways, Roundtable Records CEO and music producer Kate Rothschild has been dating  Jay Electronica and seems to be not only infatuated with him, but in love and loving every minute of it. However, her husband Ben Goldsmith, who is also from a very powerful family is pissed off and disgusted!

A couple weeks ago,  it was reported that the British couple had broken up because of Kate and Jay dating and spending many nights together. As a result, the married couple had split up, but were trying to work things out… at least Mr. Goldsmith thought.

But through it all Jay Electronica has been tweeting and twitpic-ing photos of his Rothschild boo. He has even mentioned his relationship with the Rothschild family is a rap song spitting about having “Brunch with the Rothschilds, dinner with the Carters.”

He was (at one time) somewhat close to Ben Goldsmith and also Tweeted a pic of the two hunting.

Of course,  Rothschild is receiving backlash for her outlandish relationship and has been airing out her conscious on Twitter.

So, now Rothschild and Goldsmith, after nine years of marriage, have announced their divorcing via Twitter, as well.

Here’s a little more history…

When Goldsmith, who is worth a cool £300m, discovered that Rothschild was having an affair with Jay Electronica, he raced to their £20m London home to confront her. He was then arrested after slapping his wife and reportedly threw their children’s toys at her, in disgust and confusion.


And this happened all over a Magnolia Projects rapper?

Jay is also the baby daddy of Erykah Badu’s youngest child. Apparently, Jay has been working with Kate Rothschild musically.  In March of this year, however, Jay-Z shelved Electronica’s album, telling others that although he loved the project, there weren’t any radio singles on it.

Last October he visited London and wrote on Twitter afterwards a message to “Kate”, among others, for having “opened my mind in ways it hadn’t been for years, in just 2 weeks. I lov u”.

Goldsmith apparently suspected that his wife and the rapper were dating, but was confirmed of the idea when he found dirty text messages in Rothschild’s phone.

An inside source told Britain publication The Telegraph,

“Ben is heartbroken, devastated and thoroughly miserable. He suspected Kate was cheating on him because she has been behaving increasingly erratically for some time.

“She is obsessed with this chap called Jay Electronica who is one of her clients. She is always on the phone to him and out with him until four or five in the morning most nights. Sometimes she even stays with him.

“Ben was paranoid about their friendship months ago, but when he confronted her about an affair earlier this year she denied it.

“Then last week he found a series of texts and email messages. They were very intense messages planning sexual liaisons.”

All we can say at this point is…Jay, don’t break little Kate’s heart. Because you just might have bitten off WAY MORE than you can chew.  (putting it lightly)
