PREMIERE: Jhené Aiko’s Eternal Sunshine

She’s soulful. She’s deep. She’s beautifully raw. She’s Jhené Aiko and her new music video “Eternal Sunshine” encompasses all she is. The video references very real, very tragic moments in her life (the death of her brother and a car crash involving her daughter, sister, daughter’s father, and herself), but her tone isn’t morose, it’s one of acceptance and peace. Once again, Jhené illustrates why she’s the chillest in the R&B game.

7 Reasons to Love Zendaya

It would be cool to be friends with a celebrity. Especially if that celeb was Zendaya. We think she’d be the perfect BFFL. Here’s why:

She’s still in tune with her Disney image and her younger fans.

We’re glad she’s staying true to herself and her fans. She’s showing everyone you can still be a Disney kid and have a successful career outside of Disney.

She’s got a radiant confidence that’s captivating.

She’s smart.


Zendaya is maximizing her time on Disney, which is a smart move. She’s got a devoted group of older fans, and she’s continuing to garner younger fans. Her endless optimism and mix of innocence and maturity make her a great role model to our younger generation of girls.

She’s fun.

Could she be any more adorable?

She’s versatile.

Tens all across the board.

She’s a Natura girl.

She eloquently stood up for herself and every black woman. We are not our hair. But our hair is beautifully textured and divine.

Crème de la crème: Oscars 2015

The Oscar Awards 2015 lacked to make progress, as the nominees were the least diverse since 1998, but our women were out to kill with their fashion. The looks were not only elegant and refined, but completely in sync. All our favorites donned gorgeous cream colored dresses.

Killer Fashion with Rihanna

“Dont go in the Water” unless you’re Rihanna.

Rihanna has taken edgy to another level with her March 2015 Bazaar photoshoot. Her Jaws themed photoshoot is everything you’d expect from the star: breathtaking, daring and sexy.

Take a look:

This photoshoot left us wondering how epic an action movie, starring Rihanna, would be. Another possible acting venture that would be interesting and à la mode?

Who’d go see Jaws 4 starring Rihanna? Count us in!

What can’t this 18-year-old do. Her looks ranged from edgy to elegant. Her faux pixie cut is adorable. And she was fire at the American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women show. Zendaya, Miss Jay would be so proud.

Ciara’s outfits were on point every time she stepped out. We loved her classic look for the Ralph Lauren show and her elegant dress at the Gabriela Cadena show.
