Diana Ross Just Served Peak Aries Energy At The Grammys


Who else steals the show for their birthday—a month and a half early

Diana Ross spent the 61st Annual Grammy Awards celebrating her 75th birthday. Her children sat in the front row proudly beaming at a mother who is larger than life. Rather than have a tribute in which other artists performed Ross' songs while she kicked back and relaxed, Ross not only performed many of her classics on her own, she also made the entire award show her own personal birthday party.

One thing though: It wasn't even her birthday. Talk about peak Aries energy. Ross looked like the fire queen she is, in a blazing red ball gown and her signature big hair. She mingled with the crowd. She spontaneously yelled "happy birthday to me" multiple times. It was her moment and it was glorious to behold. It was the most Aries thing I've ever witnessed. Leave it to the first sign in the zodiac to command the spotlight, in a totally new and unique way.

"Turn up the house lights!" "Put your hands back up. Don't be lazy!" These are the directives the icon gave to the crew and audience as she moved from the main stage to a smaller one in the middle of the Staples Center. Not only is she a multi-talented queen, she is living proof that the regrets I have about not having nearly enough Aries in my chart are real and they're painful.

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.
