I find this ad for Shakira’s new fragrance, S by Shakira, perplexing. First of all, how did they justify not calling the scent She Wolf? And second, she doesn’t even slightly look like herself here. What happened to her gorgeous curly hair? And her face has been soft-focused past the point of recognition. Don’t even get me started on the sequins. Keep reading »

When Nick Cannon proposed to his lady, Mariah Carey, he hid her engagement rock inside a Ring Pop lollipop, as a nod to her love for the candy, then replicated his originality in an encrusted lollipop for their anniversary.
