He’s collaborated with Miley Cyrus and gone reggae, and now the artist sometimes known as Snoop Lion is adding nail art enthusiast to resume. While you were deciding between whether or not to stick with winter colors or dive into some lime green, Snoop Dogg was getting a manicure (his first to our knowledge) in the comfort of his own home. Hey, Nice Nails! made a house call for the King of the LBC, adorning his digits with appropriate decals (a marijuana leaf, dollar sign). Snoop opted for a duo-chrome French manicure, a modern take on a reliable classic.
Jimmy Fallon has officially become the sixth host of NBC’s The Tonight Show, leaving the reins of his precious Late Night to SNL buddy Seth Meyers. It’ll be a tough act to follow, as Fallon has had an unparalleled effect on the music world during his time at 12:35 AM. For starters, he hired The Roots as his house band. And no disrespect to Paul Shaffer, but that’s pretty darn cool.
It’s 2014 and your first juicy Kanye Westrant is here. During last night’s Yeezus show in University Park, Pa, Kanye interrupted his live version of “Touch The Sky” to tell his audiences about a little something that’s been on his mind: “If I go to a radio interview, shut the f–k up!”
21-year-old Kate Hansen, a luger for Team USA, has already made a name for herself at the 2014 Sochi Olympics due to her unique warmup routine. So what kind of music soundtracks such epic moves as those seen above? Beyoncé, of course.
In the last two years no children have captured our attention quite like Blue Ivy Carter and North West. As the products of two pairs of adored celebrities, each of these little ones was celebrated, gossiped about and analyzed before she emerged from the womb. What will the name be? Who are the godparents? What kind of fashion is she rocking in the maternity ward? The speculation was endless. Now that they’re here, it’s difficult to deny that their young lives are already a lot more fabulous than our own.
Bruno Marswon big at this year’s Grammy Awards, taking home the Best Pop Vocal Album for 2012’s Unorthodox Jukebox. He’ll be filling your Sunday TV screens and Twitter feeds again this weekend, as the official Super Bowl Halftime Show performer. He’s huge on stage, yes, but have you seen him off-screen?
Need a boost of sexiness this Friday? The official video for the Shakira and Rihanna duet, “Can’t Remember To Forget You,” is here! And while the song itself may leave much to be desired, the video follows some familiar steps in the Sexy Female Duets rulebook. The clip is set in a mysterious mansion with Shakira employing some creative cover-ups in murky (bath?) water that somehow just appears (see: Shakira and Beyoncé‘s “Beautiful Liar,” which also relies heavily on the elements). Rihanna gets to do a long runway strut and sassy pose, and later attempts to out-booty the original rumpshaker. Then they both celebrate their success with some Cubans, because looking that good is hard work.
How do you top an impromptu birthday party in J. Cole‘s adopted hometown? Bring an Electric Lady and all her friends to the BX for a night of retro soul. Janelle Monáe headlined Night 2 of VH1’s Super Bowl Blitz, live from Lehman College in the Bronx. Between being rolled out in a straightjacket and body surfing over her collection of screaming fans, the undersized R&B innovator more than exceeded our expectations.
