Another episode of Cutting It in the ATL, another episode of me laughing out loud and rolling my eyes! Last week’s episode was a doozy, but this week’s episode…well, just click below.
I thought it was common knowledge that people…ESPECIALLY strangers aren’t allowed to touch Black women’s hair. Well that’s not entirely true…mainly strangers. But the point is, Black people don’t like being petted by people who are obviously fascinated with their hair. It’s weird. And apparently the other day, talented filmmaker Ava Duvernay had to set the record straight.
If you’re not a Black woman…or man, you might not know what we mean when we refer to “edges.” In our community, when we talk about edges, we’re talking about your hairline. You can have full edges, soft edges, nappy edges, slick edges, snatched edges, OR your edges can be non-existent. The latter is what you DON’T want. But if you are one of the ladies out there who is having issues with your lack of edges, you can get help!
All I can say about this, is “ARE WYPIPO REALLY AT IT, AGAIN????”
Hey guys! I’m proud to announce that I’ve been chosen, along with a few other bloggers, to cover this monumental event! The AAMBC Literary awards has announced that actress/model/TV and radio personality Claudia Jordan will host the inaugural celebration in Atlanta on Saturday, June 13, 2015 at the 444 Theatre located at 444 Highland, Atlanta, GA 30312. Jordan is known for co-hosting mainstream news shows such as Access Hollywood, Entertainment Tonight, and EXTRA before joining BRAVO’s top franchise reality series Real Housewives of Atlanta.
Ugggghhhhhh! I am officially sick and tired of being sick and tired of everybody…and this new #KylieJennerChallenge isn’t helping things…at all. So a while ago, I wrote a story about how Kylie Jenner’s lips were being called the “newest trend” and how I thought that was incredibly stupid. Full lips are NOT a trend, they are a physical characteristic of PEOPLE who happen to be mostly Black. I think it’s pretty obvious why that’s offensive.
Again, in “White people writing about Black folks’ hair” news…Elle Magazine decided to write an article called “The Ultimate Black Hair Gallery.” I had a funny feeling in the pit of my stomach when I read that headline, and when I clicked on the link, my fears became a reality.
When I heard that the Black Women in Film Network Summit (BWFN) was making its way to ATL, you know I just HAD to be there. I was excited about the networking, the art, the positivity, and of course, the parties! This past weekend, I got to rub elbows with the Black Hollywood elite…and boy did I have fun! Check it out:
E! News correspondent Guiliana Rancic is in hot water this morning after making some not so flattering comments about actress/singer Zendaya Coleman.
