Slick Rick Praises The First-Ever Global Hip-Hop Day

June 8 marks Global Hip-Hop Day, during which we celebrate the global and cultural impact of the genre that was started some 40 years ago

The first-ever event, which is held in conjunction with the NYC Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment, the office of The Bronx Borough President, and New York radio station Hot 97, will take place in the Bronx and will commemorate hip-hop’s ability to unite people and create positive impact around the globe.

During the day, there will be a public proclamation and unveiling of Hip-Hop Boulevard at 1520 Sedgwick Avenue, which is the birthplace of hip-hop and home of legendary hip-hop pioneer Kool Herc.

The special ceremony will also recognize Fat Joe, Slick Rick, Kool Herc and The Lox as this year’s of ICON honorees for their vast musical contributions.

For legendary rapper Slick Rick, Global Hip-Hop Day will help solidify the future of the genre’s place in society.

“It’s a good thing, because hip-hop is due recognition,” Rick said in an interview with HuffPost. “And it’s addressing the influence it has over modern day youth and the future of modern society.”

The English-born MC ― who’s known for his charismatic style and vivid storytelling lyrics ― rose to hip-hop prominence in the 80s with the release of his critically acclaimed debut 1988 album, “The Great Adventures of Slick Rick.”

As one of New York’s longstanding hip-hop radio stations, Hot 97’s SVP/Market Manager of Emmis New York​, Charlie Morgan said that the station aims to celebrate the extension of hip-hop’s global reach.

“We want to both honor the origins of hip-hop music and the hip-hop culture as being born and bred in New York City, specifically the Bronx,” Morgan told HuffPost. “At the same time, we want to celebrate the global reach and impact of this native New York art form. Hot 97 is proud of our heritage and role as the first hip-hop radio station, as well as the role we are playing in the global expansion of this music with the international expansion of Summer Jam and global distribution of Hot 97 online.”

Rick said he’d like for hip-hop to unite fans on topics such as foreign affairs.

“It could be a pulpit for the modern day youth to express its opinions about issues ― global warming, foreign affairs ― as far as how to get along without all the unrest and stuff like that,” he said.

Disney Kids Show Subtly Airs First-Ever Same-Sex Cartoon Kiss On Channel

The Disney Channel aired its first same-sex cartoon kiss this week during the animated adventure show “Star vs. The Forces of Evil.”

The subtle yet groundbreaking moment comes when the show’s characters attend a boy band concert and a diverse array of concertgoers are shown sharing kisses ― including two men.

Check it out in the video below at 1:26.

The kiss is the latest in a long line of moves Disney has made to incorporate pro-LGBTQ messages in its programming, including featuring a lesbian couple on the show “Good Luck Charlie” in 2014. The network also showcased a same-sex couple in its animated series “Gravity Falls.”

The family-friendly company isn’t alone: there are a number of other progressive cartoons for kids currently airing on TV, including the very queer Steven Universe.

Nice move, Disney. Keep the queer visibility for kids coming.

Alec Baldwin’s First-Ever ‘SNL’ Monologue Is Proof The Man Was Born For This

If President Donald Trump is furiously anticipating this weekend’s “Saturday Night Live” episode hosted by Alec Baldwin ― and we’re 99 percent sure he is ― he better buckle up.

Baldwin, POTUS’s decided nemesis and a dedicated Trump impersonator, has been an impressive addition since his humble beginnings on the show, as evidenced in NBC’s throwback clip of the actor’s first-ever “Saturday Night Live” monologue in 1990.

The clip shows a young Baldwin taking the stage at New York’s Rockefeller Plaza for the first time, but with his smooth talk and silky confidence you’d never guess it.

“Charming, win them over, get them on your side,” Baldwin, who will ― after this weekend ― have hosted “SNL” a record 17 times, says of doing his first monologue in the clip above. “Now that is something I think I know how to do.”

While Trump has made it known that he hates ― and we mean hates ― Baldwin and the “SNL” team for making fun of pretty much everything he does, we find it hard for anyone to be repelled of Baldwin’s ‘90s-era charm.

Manolo Blahnik Books First-ever Personal Appearance at Saks Fifth Avenue

SHOE IN: Manolo Blahnik will make his first-ever personal appearance at a Saks Fifth Avenue store next month. On Sept. 10 the stiletto-maker will appear within his Saks shop-in-shop boutique — located on the retailer’s “10022” shoe floor — for a signing.
From 5 to 7 p.m., shoppers who purchase a new pair of Blahniks can have their shoes signed by the footwear impresario.
Blahnik’s Saks shop-in-shop — his first-ever permanent retail fixture at a Saks store — opened within the retailer’s Manhattan flagship location earlier this month.
“New York is a very important city for me, so seeing this shop coming to life means a lot…It is very exciting to meet new faces and see the usual customers again. I really enjoy communicating with them; it’s always great to hear their experiences and feedback in first person,” Blahnik said of the event.

Kendall and Kylie Jenner Step Up Their Fashion Game With Their First-Ever Collection

kendall-kylie-jenner

Just when you thought they’d done it all (and they’re still teenagers, mind you), Kendall and Kylie Jenner shared some big fashion news today: They’re launching their first-ever standalone clothing and shoe collection.

While the style-setting, Instagram-record-breaking, Balmain-campaign-starring sisters have dabbled in fashion design before, guest designing collections for Topshop and Pacsun, this is their first foray into designing their own line, aptly named Kendall + Kylie. WWD broke the news today and spoke with the Jenners about the contemporary apparel and shoe collection, which will bow at retailers such as Saks Fifth Avenue, Shopbop, and Nordstrom in spring 2016.

“This is all us. It’s enjoyable to be able to fully create,” Kendall told WWD. “It’s a lot different from our Topshop and PacSun collections because those were both collaborations, so they obviously had a say in everything…. One main thing that we wanted to cover was to make sure that it was affordable and still beautiful.”

Everything in the collection will retail for under $ 250, with prices starting at approximately $ 65 for a top.

“I feel like we’ve both really evolved our styles, and this represents what we want to wear,” said Kylie, who cited Alexander Wang and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen as inspirations. The Olsens are interesting and fitting inspiration to the Jenner girls, who seem staunch in their commitment to being fashion designers. Similarly, the Olsens launched their contemporary line, Elizabeth & James in 2007, prior to the wildly successful launch of their ready-to-wear brand, The Row, a year earlier. Could the Jenners be on the road to winning fashion’s Oscar, a CFDA award, like the Olsens did this year?

“Designing is something that we’ve always wanted to do, and I think it’s really cool to kind of step back and put the looks together and be a part of the shoot when it’s a different model modeling it and actually being the creative person behind it,” said Kendall.

One thing the girls are firm on: They don’t want their sisters Kourtney, Kim, and Khloe Kardashian to offer their opinions on the collection, which includes dresses with elegant halter twist necklines, cutouts, and fluid silk pants. “We don’t want their opinion on it because we want it to be very ‘us.’ We don’t show them anything until it’s done and out,” Kendall told WWD sister publication Footwear News. “We all have similar styles but different tastes.”

Here’s a first look at the collection:

America’s Best Muslim Comedians To Star In First-Ever Muslim Funny Fest

What do Muslims in America have to laugh about?

Quite a lot, say the organizers of New York City’s — and possibly America’s — first-ever Muslim stand-up comedy festival.

The Muslim Funny Fest, slated to take place between July 21 and 23, will bring 14 Muslim entertainers together for a bit of comic relief. 

Dean Obeidallah and Maysoon Zayid, the two comedians co-producing the event, have been putting together the New York Arab American Comedy Festival for the past 11 years. But this year, they felt it was important to rally around the shared experience of growing up Muslim in America, and use comedy to process that experience.

“Even though all the comedians are Muslims, we all have very different experiences, whether it is the culture we grew up in or the extent to which we practice our faith,” Zayid told The Huffington Post. “The common link that, sadly, brings us together is the bigotry and hatred we are currently experiencing as American Muslims, and I am hoping that the Muslim Funny Fest will do something to dilute that hate.” 

American attitudes toward Muslims have taken a turn for the worse in recent years.

In 2010, close to half of Muslim-Americans said they’d experienced some form of personal racial or religious discrimination. And Muslims are viewed more coldly than any other major religious group in the country, according to a 2014 Pew Research Center poll.

“The United States is scared of two things: black people and Muslims,” comedian Preacher Moss says in a trailer for the fest. “I’ve got the best of both worlds.” 

The festival will feature stars like Negin Farsad, a producer, actor and social justice activist, “Mo” Amer, who was part of the comedy tour “Allah Made Me Funny,” and Azhar Usman, a former attorney who has performed stand-up on five continents.

Obeidallah said that one of his biggest hopes for the festival is that the audience is diverse and that it includes non-Muslims of many faiths and backgrounds. 

“We felt really strongly the need to show people that Muslims can be funny, that we have a sense of humor, and most importantly, that we can laugh at ourselves,” he said.
