Music Video | Nicki Minaj - Beez In The Trap

The song is just so basic. The video's just so exploitative and suggestive. It's such a terrible reference for the young, prepubescent girls it's targeting and yet I can't stop looking at it. Either I like the black wig or I'm in shock. It's like crack, for kids.

Hennessy's Wild Rabbit Party: Missy, Timbaland, Erykah

Despite the speculation that Missy and Timbaland would not be performing, it looks like the two made it to the stage at Hennessy's Wild Rabbit event, last night in NYC, and according to Miss Info, put on quite a show.

Erykah Badu came through and we asked her about her ever evolving fashion sense, her children and whether or not they were on their way to developing their own personal sense of style...

"They're all very individual--I promote freedom. We don't have any rules; just do what I say, not wear what I say."

Kanye West Makes His Return to Paris Fashion Week...

Last season, Kanye suprised everyone with a pretty well executed line of womenswear for a first time designer.
KANYE’S ENCORE: Kanye West will return to Paris Fashion Week this season with his eponymous collection, his spokesman at the Karla Otto agency said. The singer-turned-designer will show at 9.30 p.m. on March 6 on the sidelines of the official calendar established by the Chambre Syndicale, French fashion’s governing body, but the venue has yet to be confirmed. West’s debut last season drew a star-studded front row, but garnered mixed reviews.

Highly pigmented colors that don't fade.
Maybelline also released a new mascara; "Illegal Length Fiber Extensions Mascara". I think Maybelline has been giving other brands (Covergirl, L'Oreal) a run for their money lately. Anything Erin endorses is always worth a gander.

GQ Magazine February 2012 | Michelle Williams

Michelle Williams. fresh off her Golden Globe win for her role in "My Week With Marilyn" is featured in the February issue of Gentlemen's Quarterly.

When Williams legally emancipated herself from her parents at 15, she didn't do so because of any family schism, but for the independence and the practical advantages—she says she no longer needed a tutor and could work adult hours. When I suggest that it was pretty ambitious and self-contained to think she could handle it, she agrees. "It was just stupid. I didn't know what I was taking on," she says. "I don't think things through very often—I don't project into the future about how a situation will turn out. Even the simplest things, I'm guilty of making really bad decisions a lot of the time. In my work it's a capacity that's served me well, but in my life it can be a problem."

She describes being "a 15-year-old making a house as best as she could. I had an egg crate for a mattress. It's hard to tuck your sheets under an egg crate." It was, she says, "very, very lonely." She also refers to "just being around not-great people"; there were clearly experiences difficult enough that she would prefer to keep the details to herself.

Do you feel angry about anything that happened then?

"Not as much anymore. There's a lot of distance now. Fifteen years of distance. Since I left this time period, living in Los Angeles, I haven't felt like anybody's prey."

Do you think whatever happened was your fault or other people's fault?

"My opinion of that has changed over the years. I don't know—do kids have culpability?"
