Well hello there, Beyoncé! All eyes were on the “Crazy in Love” singer who stepped out in New York City to attend Chanel’s latest fashion show Tuesday night.

While the Destiny’s Child member passed on posing near the red carpet, photographers were still able to capture Queen Bey’s impeccable style on the streets of the Big Apple.

Wearing a neutral sweater with a printed jacket and a purple leather skirt, Mrs. Jay Z had no problems showing off her fit figure and those fabulous legs. She completed her look with a Chanel handbag, heels and some serious bling on both of her fingers.

Not to be outdone, there were a few other familiar faces that certainly made this show a star-studded affair.

Julianne Moore, Dakota Johnson, Pharrell Williams and Lily Collins were just some of the big names who had a front-row seat to Chanel’s Metiers d’Art Collection.

Even Vanessa Paradis made it a mother-daughter night out when she attended with daughter Lily-Rose Depp. At just 15 years old, the teenager sparkled in a two-piece pastel ensemble consisting of a crop top and pencil skirt.

It looks like someone is taking some good advice from her mama who was recently crowned “one of Karl Lagerfeld‘s favourite girls” by Marie Claire UK. Way to learn from the absolute best!

Lupita Nyong’o: There’s ”Nothing Comfortable About Being an Actor,” but She’s Taking Grace-Under-Pressure Cues From Emma Thompson

So this fame thing hasn’t quite grown on Lupita Nyong’o yet. “You know, I thought it would come to an end after the Oscars. I thought the Oscars would come and go and then all of a sudden everything would be back to normal and I’d be back in my apartment,” the Academy Award winner says in the May 2015 issue of Harper’s Bazaar U.K., which also features the radiant 12 Years a Slave star on the cover.

While you would have been hard-pressed to tell that Nyong’o’s triumphant 2014 awards season was also her first red-carpet gamut (not to mention her breakthrough year as an actress in general), the Kenyan star insists that she was just fakin’ it till she made it.

“You know what kept me sane? Not knowing,” she admits. “Having never really experienced that before… because this was new territory I had no normal. I had no sense of what was normal in that world. It was all new. I don’t think [I would attend that many events again]. Not to that extent.”

But if what Nyong’o says is true—that she considered Emma Thompson with serving as a beacon of light in the storm—perhaps we can expect her playful side to come out a bit more on future red carpets, à la her idol.

“Emma Thompson, Emma Thompson, Emma Thompson, Emma Thompson,” Nyong’o replied when asked what her ultimate saving grace was during those hectic months. “It was such a relief… witnessing her going through that whole thing with an ease and a playfulness and just abandon. That is like the person I want to be. I want to be that comfortable even in this very alien environment that you get put in.”

Thompson was nominated last year for a Golden Globe, a SAG Award, a BAFTA and many other honors for Saving Mr. Banks, so she did cross paths with Lupita a number of times—not least of which when she totally photobombed the awards season newbie.

Asked about her uniquely poignant acceptance speeches, Nyong’o admits that she wishes she didn’t put quite as much of herself into them as she almost always does.

“I wish that I took it more lightly sometimes because it costs a lot,” she says. “Which is why I can’t do those speeches every weekend, because it costs a lot to share from such a deep place, if you will. But I don’t know how to speak from any other place. Kenyans are very ceremonial. There is a formality that comes with gatherings and comes from our colonial conditioning… Oratory is something that’s really important to Kenyans, the way one speaks to the masses, it’s an art almost.”

Speaking of her heritage, Nyong’o was also asked if she felt a responsibility to share her personal experiences and speak out on behalf of the importance of diversity in Hollywood.

“I don’t feel like the responsibility I feel comes from any place other than my gut. I feel a responsibility to speak about certain things because I wish someone had spoken about them for me,” she says. “I know I’m in a unique position where lots of people all over the world are seeing me and connecting with me, and perhaps because of my demographic and how limited representation is for my demographic, I do feel not a responsibility but an impetus to speak. It’s an impetus… It’s 2015, man. We could all use some diversity. It can get tedious to have to explain that I speak English because Kenyans speak English.”

Though being under the microscope isn’t Nyong’o’s favorite thing about the biz, at least she still loves the acting part, albeit because she’s fine with a certain amount of discomfort.

“I enjoy learning new things,” she says. “I enjoy being uncomfortable for some reason. It’s more interesting, more challenging… That’s why I’m an actor. Because there’s nothing comfortable about being an actor. You’re always out on a ledge, you know?”

Angelina Jolie: I Do Believe in the Old Saying ”What Does Not Kill You Makes You Stronger”

The award-winning actress, philanthropist and mother of six recently revealed that she made the brave decision to have her ovaries and fallopian tubes removed as a preventative measure. And now, during an interview with Elle magazine, Jolie discusses the general sense of struggle and having the will to not only overcome obstacles but learn from them.

“I do believe in the old saying ‘What does not kill you makes you stronger,'” the Unbroken director explains when reflecting on Louis Zamperini (the inspiration behind the film) and his struggle. “Our experiences, good and bad, make us who we are. By overcoming difficulties, we gain strength and maturity.”

Furthermore, when Angie is asked what she would do if she had the power to redirect Americans’ media attention to other, non-gossipy headlines, the celeb explains that it’s not the news as much as the solution to the news.

“It is not really the nature of the news, but what we do with the information we have. We know more than ever before in history about conflict and injustice happening across the world, but the will to translate that knowledge into pressure and action at a global level somehow seems to be lacking,” she says.

“Time and again, after massacres and atrocities, the world says, ‘never again.’ But in Syria today, to take just one example, these things are happening with impunity in the full knowledge of the world. We need a greater focus on solutions—not just on information.”

Continuing to be a motivating force for people of all ages, the 39-year-old actress made her first post-surgery appearance with kids Zahara and Shiloh at the Kids’ Choice Awards on Saturday, and reminded fans to never be afraid of being “different” after accepting her award for Favorite Villain.

“Different is good. So, don’t fit,” Jolie said. “Don’t ever try to be less than what you are, and when someone tells you that you are different, smile and hold your head up high and be proud.”

Kris Jenner and Kanye West Caught Sleeping Together on a Train?! See for Yourself

Kanye West, Kris Jenner Coleman-Rayner

Kanye West and Kris Jenner clearly couldn’t keep their eyes open a moment longer during a recent train ride from Paris to London, and a sneaky fan caught the whole thing!

The two were seen catching some much needed shuteye while riding in first class, with Jenner folding her arms and having a snooze and the rapper resting one hand on the tray in front of him.

West and Jenner’s cat nap appeared to be perfectly timed, however, as they seemed to have snacked on croissants shortly before dozing off.


It’s no secret that Kim Kardashian‘s hubby and mama are extremely close.

During an interview last year with GQ magazine, Yeezy opened up about how Jenner holds a special place in his heart—especially since he lost his mother Donda West back in 2007.

“Having someone that I can call Mom again. That s–t is super cool,” he told the magazine when asked what the best part of marrying into the Kardashian family.

He also couldn’t help but gush about his leading lady, admitting, “Kim is this girl who f–king turns me on. I love her. This is who I want to be next to and be around. And then people would try to say, ‘Well, you know, if you’re a musician, you should be with a musician, and if you want to design, you need to be with a girl from the design world.’ I don’t give a f–k about people’s opinions.”

Stephanie Pratt Poses Topless for FHM, Reveals Plans to Release Explosive Tell-All About ”Drugs and Rehab and Arrests”

Stephanie Pratt is baring it all in the latest issue of FHM—and no, we’re not just talking about her bod.

The former Hills star poses topless on the cover of the magazine, wearing nothing but a pair of black stockings, and opens up about her career five years after the MTV reality show came to an end, revealing that she’s writing a tell-all.

“It’s coming out later in the year, and it’s about me growing up,” Pratt shares, via the U.K.’s Daily Mail. “It’s got stuff about family, getting everything I’ve ever wished for, my descent into drugs and rehab and arrests.”

Pratt, who was busted for a DUI back in October 2009, will also expose secrets from The Hills and will dish on her brother, Spencer Pratt, the reality show’s infamous bad boy.

“Then stuff about The Hills, Big Brother, Made in Chelsea, my brother, guys…I’ve been very honest,” she said.

In addition to the racy cover, Pratt leaves little to the imagination in the inside spread, wearing nothing but a navy blazer and a pair of white briefs in one pic. In another, she poses in just a T-shirt and purple panties, flaunting her booty for the camera as she gives a seductive stare.

“Growing up, I was always a tomboy and I didn’t have a lot of self-confidence,” she revealed. “This is the ultimate sexy magazine, so it’s really cool.”

Following Pratt’s foray into reality TV, the blond beauty moved to London, where she lives a much more quiet life out of the spotlight.

Asked to share the differences between girls in the U.S. and London, Pratt replied, “Girls here are way more reserved. Like, they still get totally wild, but they can keep it classy while they’re doing it whereas in the States, you’ll catch us falling out of clubs barefoot.”

A$AP Rocky Covers ‘Complex'; Talks New Album, Iggy Azalea, Dissing Hood By Air & More

A$AP Rocky covers Complex for their April/May 2015 issue. Rocky sit down with Joe La Puma to talk up about his forthcoming album At.Long.Last.A$AP, dabbling with psychedelic drugs and staying out of the spotlight, dissing Hood By Air on “Multiply” and the heavy criticism of his ex-girlfriend Iggy Azalea.

Read more highlights from the interview below.

On Iggy Azalea: 

“It comes with the game. If [Iggy Azalea is] fake on something, somebody is going to call her bluff. That’s life. I’m not looking at it from a standpoint of “I used to be boning this chick’s back out.” I’m looking at it [as] “She’s just a person.” You can’t bluff. You gotta just be 100. That’s all I could really say. The question is: Was she not being 100 about something?”

On dissing Hood By Air:

“The people behind the brands didn’t acknowledge me as a pioneer because I didn’t sit down and create the name Hood by Air with Shayne [Oliver]. I’m taking full credit for that brand, for anyone knowing anything. Yes. I’m taking credit for that. I liked it when I was way younger. It had a little run here and there, but nobody ever really kicked it off. I knew Shayne on a personal note. I was like: “Yo, let’s bring this s*** back.” It took me years. Shayne’s stubborn. He’d give me a sweater one year, a T-shirt one year. It was like that. I have a lot of s*** from back in the day, and I’d say after “Peso”—because we have Hood by Air in the “Peso” video—by the time it hit 2012, 2013, he was ready. Because I was out there in the field. I just made that s*** look jiggy”.


On experimenting with psychedelics:

“Before it was all about the slowdown. Promethazine. Codeine flow. Now it’s like that, but on another level to the max. I’m going to be honest with you, man. When Yams died, psychedelic music healed me. Stuff like the The Mysterians, “96 Tears.” That’s all the stuff I love. I love classic rock. Take the Doors — those organs. It’s why I love Danger Mouse’s aesthetic.

I use them to my advantage. It’s not something I wanna f*** with all the time. That’s the beauty of it. You can dip and dab with the psychedelics, but that ain’t something I wanna keep doing. Nah.”


On his new album At.Long.Last.A$AP:

“He cues up the music, lights a blunt, and motions for me to take a seat on one of several massive Goyard chests scattered around the bedroom. One track features Miguel singing over a sample from Rod Stewart’s “In a Broken Dream.” Another track wields verses from Juicy J, Bun B, and previously unreleased bars from one of his musical heroes, the late Pimp C. One song has Rocky singing in a falsetto (in the room, he warbles along to the track). Another, “Holy Ghost,” is ostensibly a searing indictment about rappers being slaves to their titles, but Rocky’s more interested in how it’s tied up in conflicts about spirituality. “I didn’t want this to get confused [as] bashing religion,” he explains, and then raps a few bars from the track after it’s done playing:

“Who’s more important than your lord and savior/Won’t let the pearly gates up, it’s probably due to all your poor behavior/My mental got a couple tips to save ya/You can count it as my only favor/thank me later.” said A$AP Rocky

Jay Z Not Buying Tupac Shakur’s Catalog But New Music From Late Icon On The Way

There have been rumors swirling that Jay Z and his company Roc Nation had acquired the rights to Tupac Shakur’s music catalog of unreleased material from Entertainment One for $384 million.

Talk of a new album from the late music icon with features from Nas, Beyonce, DMX, Drake, Jay Z and more also surfaced, but according to Billboard there’s no truth to either rumor.

However, the good news is that there is unreleased music on the way from Shakur, according to JAM Inc.’s Jeff Jampol, who oversees the late rapper’s estate.

“Almost an embarrassment of riches,” Jampol told Billboard, listing “unreleased music, released music, remixes, original demos, writings, scripts, plans, video treatments, poems.” And although multiple posthumous albums have been issued since Shakur’s death (to strong sales and mixed reviews), Jampol and Whalley contend a wealth of still-untapped material remains — the value of which can’t be understated, considering 33.8 million Tupac albums have been sold in the U.S. alone since 1991, according to Nielsen Music.

“Some of [the material] is in bits and pieces, some of it is complete; some of it is good, some of it needs work,” says Whalley, who has explored much of the archive. “But I think the work that is left can be completed, and is worth his fans hearing.”

Are you looking forward to hearing new music from 2Pac?
