Did Kim Kardashian Copy Urban Decay’s New Palette?

Her Instagram comments are filled with accusations

Kim Kardashian revealed her newest KKW Beauty collection, the Cherry Blossom, to Instagram yesterday—and fans are already accusing her of stealing it from Urban Decay. But the situation might be a little bit trickier than it appears at first glance.

You may recall that after the heartbreaking news that UD would be discontinuing its iconic Naked palette, the brand introduced a full line of cherry-themed products. That was only two weeks ago, so it's hard to imagine Kim K scrambled to create a carbon copy in that much time, but we have to admit, they do look pretty similar. Not only do they share a name, but color families and product offerings—that's three strikes against her, right? 

Cosmopolitan did some digging around in the comment section, and the results weren't pretty. The callouts ranged from a simple, "Urban Decay...," to the more harsh, "Why do people lose their minds about Kylie or Kim's makeup? It is SO boring and just copies other brands." Woof. 

At least Kim has another tie-in to cherry blossoms to back up her originality. Last year, the family hosted an over-the-top cherry blossom themed baby shower to celebrate her and Kanye West's third child. 

While this is most likely an unfortunate coincidence, it's not the first copy-cat accusations the mogul has received. It's not even the first one this year.

While the song should serve as a reminder to your exes

Just a day after dropping new single "Nunya," featuring Dom Kennedy, Kehlani has released the winter-wonderland visuals to go along with. The singer, NYLON November cover star, and mother-to-be rocks some of the best winter 'fits I've seen in a while, including a glorious puffer jacket that could double as a down comforter that I absolutely need in my life right now.

Kehlani is clearly living her best life up in some snow-filled forest hideaway, vibing on the beach at sunset and sipping on something bubbly as she coolly reminds nosy exes that who she's with is "nunya business." There's not much of a story line (unlike her recent "Nights Like This" video); the main takeaway is that Kehlani is busy dancing through a forest, missing no one and chilling amongst people who are clearly not the subjects of the song.

Kehlani is only two short months away from bringing baby Adeya into the world, who she thanked for helping her get through the video process. "Shot that 7 months pregnant in da snow..." Kehlani wrote on Twitter, adding, "thank u baby for da motivation, mommy was FROZE."

Even from the womb, Adeya has been hustling hard alongside her momma. Twitter user @ODtheMC pointed out that this is already her second music video appearance, and she's not even been born.

Get some mulled wine ready and escape into Kehlani's winter getaway, below. Stay tuned for her forthcoming mixtape, While We Wait, out on February 22.

As in Black Panther Political Party leader

It's been a running joke that the Black parents/grandparents of millennials were really confused about all of the Black Panther hoopla ahead of its 2018 release. Many of them were anticipating a movie about members of the Black Panther Political Party and didn't know who the hell T'Challa was. Well, those people are about to have their moment, and we're about to have another one.

Variety is reporting that Fred Hampton, the Black Panther leader at the center of the upcoming biopic Jesus Was My Homeboy, could be played by none other than Daniel Kaluuya. Apparently, he is in negotiations for the role. And he's not the only Black Panther alum in the mix. The Warner Bros. project is being produced by Black Panther director, Ryan Coogler. The same article reports that the forever swoon-worthy Lakeith Stanfield—who appeared with Kaluuya in Jordan Peele's Get Out—is also in negotiations, to play William O'Neal, an FBI informant who infiltrated the Black Panther Party.

Coogler and Charles King are putting together a dream cast to tell a difficult story. Hampton was killed by the Chicago Police Department, while his pregnant girlfriend lay next to him, thanks in part to information they received from O'Neal. Whenever it's out, I strongly recommend having Black Panther queued up as a palate cleanser.
