We Like: Rap Songs Celebrating Smart Ladies


Let’s face it: rap and hip-hop are not known for being particularly lady-friendly. (Ludacris’ “Move Bitch,” anyone?) That’s why we especially love Flavorwire’s collection of rap odes to smart women. Like The Roots’ track, “You Got Me,” featuring Erykah Badu. In it, Black Thought praises his girl: “She taking classes abroad/She studying film and photo flash focus record/Said she workin’ on a flick and could my clique do the score/She said she loved my show in Paris/At Elysee Montmartre.” Check out the other selections at the link.

5 Things To Know About Christine O’Donnell

When did conservative female political candidates who make bombastic statements become so chic? First there was Sarah Palin, then Michele Bachmann, and now Tea Party candidate Christine O’Donnell is the toast of Delaware’s Senate race. For the love of vaginas, Victoria Woodhull, Shirley Chisholm and Geraldine Ferraro did not smash through the glass ceiling so that their successors could clog up the 24/7 news cycle with their anti-sex, anti-woman views.

Frankly, Christine O’Donnell’s declaration on the MTV series “Sex In the ’90s” that masturbation is a sin is all the crazy I need to know to make my assessment about her. But in case you and your lustful heart want to give O’Donnell a chance, here are five things to know about her. And you know you want to know how Mel Gibson is involved. Keep reading »

LL Cool J Gets Interviewed By His Daughter

Nina: If I get all A’s on my report card this year, do I get a present?
LL: I expect you to get all A’s. Why would I get you a present?
Nina: Daaaad, that’s my question—you’re supposed to answer it! I’d like an iPad, a new phone, or a puppy. So what would it be?
LL: I think it’s obvious we grew up in different neighborhoods. I would take you out for ice cream.

Charlie Le Mindu Sends Naked Models Down The Runway

Wig maker Charlie Le Mindu, whose insane work we’ve featured here previously, decided to spice up the already eccentric London Fashion Week by having his models traipse down the runway wearing next to nothing other than his hair creations. While some of the models at the start of the 24-year-old’s show had on skimpy clothes, eventually they fell off altogether. Le Mindu is perhaps best known for having created some of Lady Gaga‘s hair looks. We suppose it’s only a matter of time before she goes buck naked, as well. After the jump, get an eyeful of the full effect (blurred). [Daily Mail] Keep reading »

The Fashion World Remembers Alexander McQueen

More than a thousand people gathered into St. Paul’s Cathedral in London to remember designer Alexander McQueen, who took his own life earlier this year. Many of the women in attendance, including Daphne Guinness (above), wore McQueen’s signature over-the-top and otherworldly designs. Guinness strutted in a pair of sky-high platforms, while Bjork wore a top made of thin, molded wood shaped like angel wings and a long feathered skirt. Other friends of McQueen were more tame in dress, but were still decked out for the event. Trust the fashion world to turn a memorial service into a fantastic runway show. It’s one of the best ways to remember an extraordinary designer. [WWD.com]
