If there’s any universally flattering color, it’s blue. There’s a shade to match anyone’s coloring and, done right, a really bright blue looks good on everyone. It sounds perilous, especially for those who don’t typically sport neon colors, but why not integrate a flashy cyan by confining it to a truly risk-free area like, say, your nails? Regardless of what you wear, even (and especially) if it’s your most buttoned-up work attire, bright blue nails are a wink to your more daring side. Take it from Beyoncé, who’s been wearing the shade out and about in a nod to her daughter, Blue Ivy. See, there must be something to it! These are my five picks for the boldest blues — what’s your favorite? If one catches your eye, I’ve included the purchasing information after the jump. Keep reading »

“[My mother] did [run a brothel] for a while … I sat in there and saw them get ready and they would ask me how they look and my mother would say, ‘You’ve looked better.’ My parents actually ran drag clubs in Australia, which is how I grew up. It was normal for me. It was my normal. I knew the other kids didn’t do it, but for me it was life and nothing was wrong with it. I would see nothing wrong with Beyonce having a drag queen nanny. And why not? Everyone needs one! And a great gay man in their life.”

– Tabatha Coffey on her unconventional upbringing and her recommendations for Blue Ivy. Well, she had to get so good at doing hair somehow. Having drag queen friends will do the trick. I cosign on drag queen nannies. Think about how much the kid would know about pop culture. But I call RuPaul. Beyonce and Jay Z will have to find someone else. [Huffington Post]

College, man. You can study just about anything. I know I did. When I was in grad school I wrote papers on 1) black and white cop buddy movies, 2) riot grrl and 3) drag queens on film. Like, really. So there’s that. And now, over at Rutgers University in New Jersey, you can take an entire class on Beyoncé. The class will focus on the continuum between Beyoncé Knowles in regards to black feminism, studying Bey’s lyrics alongside/against historical black female figures like Alice Walker and Sojourner Truth. So…. “Single Ladies” vs. The Color Purple? “Run the World (Girls)” vs. Ain’t I A Woman? “She certainly pushes boundaries,” said Professor Kevin Allread of the class. ”While other artists are simply releasing music, she’s creating a grand narrative around her life, her career, and her persona.” Keep reading »

Beyoncé’s Album Promo Photos Are Unrecognizable

Beyonce skin lightened ad

The rampant white-washing of models, actresses, and musicians of color is not a new concept. Freida Pinto, Rihanna, and Aishwarya Rai have all previously fallen victim to white-washing on magazine covers and in promotional images. Beyoncé’s skin was lightened dramatically in a 2008 cosmetics ad by L’Oreal, where she is the spokesperson. These incidents can be contributed to digital retouchers and the outlets that choose to release the images … but what about your own album cover and promo ads? The photos accompanying Beyoncé’s most recent release, 4, have stirred up controversy and it’s not a struggle to see why. Beyoncé is a fairly light-skinned black woman and she generally keeps her hair lightened to a shade that’s more caramel than chocolate. But these shots have her looking straight up like Lindsay Lohan with a subtle tan. If you showed me this image on its own and asked me who it was, Beyoncé would be my last guess.

Again, these light-skinned images are promotional ads for Béyonce’s own album, which leads me to believe that she absolutely approved the photos. [NYMag.com
