Selena Gomez Is Making a Beauty Line

Selena Gomez is the latest celebrity to create a namesake beauty line.
According to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, the actress and musician filed a trademark for “Selena Gomez” on July 11 for a number of beauty products, including “fragrances, cosmetics, skin-care preparations, hair-care preparations, soaps, moisturizers and essential oils,” among others. The trademark was filed by July Moon Productions, which is Gomez’s production company.
Gomez had previously launched a namesake fragrance in 2011 with Adrenalina Inc., which she crowdsourced through her fans who helped decide on the scent profile. Outside of beauty, Gomez teamed with Coach last year to collaborate on a ready-to-wear collection following the success of the Selena Grace handbag and accessories line launched by Coach the year prior. Gomez also serves as the global face of Coach. In 2018, she was also tapped by Puma to design a line of apparel, shoes and accessories.
Her first venture in the fashion space came in 2010 with the launch of her clothing line, called Dream Out Loud, at Kmart in 2010. The juniors line included back-to-school apparel and was expected to generate $ 100 million during its first year. The line is no longer available at the retailer.

Evangelion Director is Making a New Ultraman Movie

Hideaki Anno, the infamous director of Neon Genesis Evangelion and Shin Godzilla, is set to write and produce a new Ultraman film, according to Japan Today via Game Informer.

The new Ultraman film, titled “Shin Ultraman,” will be directed by Shinji Higuchi, who also co-directed 2016’s Shin Godzilla with Anno. Higuchi is also known as a writer on Evangelion, and a director on Attack on Titan. The similar titles (“Shin” translates to “new”) is surely intentional, given the co-director’s artistic direction they took on the Godzilla film. IGN gave Shin Godzilla an 8.5 out of 10, saying it “establishes its own unique style while taking inspiration from the classics in all the right ways.”

Versace Is Making Sneakers Inspired by Jennifer Lopez’s Iconic Green Dress

Nineteen years later, Jennifer Lopez’s plunging, jungle-themed dress is still iconic.
Case in point: the Versace number, which Lopez wore to the Grammy Awards in 2000, is getting the sneaker treatment in a collaboration between the fashion house and clothing brand, Concepts.
Launching Friday, the two have partnered for a limited-edition Chain Reaction platform sneaker that mimics the green, jungle-print seen on Lopez’s dress. The sneakers retail for $ 1,075.

Versace x Concepts Chain Reaction Sneaker. 
Concepts

Lopez’s dress is still celebrated as a cultural emblem of the early aughts and is credited for catapulting the singer and actress to fashion icon status. The dress was the impetus behind Google launching Google Images, with former chief executive officer, Eric Schmidt, stating that Lopez’s dress was the most popular search term that the company had ever seen.
The limited-edition sneaker is available in both men and women’s sizes and will be available on Concepts’ web site and stores in Boston and New York.

Nike Is Making SpongeBob SquarePants Sneakers

SpongeBob SquarePants is getting his own sneaker collection.
In celebration of the Nickelodeon TV show’s 20th anniversary, Nike is teaming with NBA player Kyrie Irving to create a SpongeBob SquarePants collection that takes inspiration from the beloved show’s characters.
Nike and Irving — a self-described super fan of the show — worked in collaboration with Nickelodeon to create five versions of the Kyrie 5 and Kyrie Low 2 sneakers that are designed after the titular character along with his friends Patrick Star, Squidward Tentacles, Mr. Krabs and Sandy Cheeks.

The Kyrie 5 sneaker is created to look like a sponge with a yellow polka dot pattern and a red and brown sole that mimics SquarePants’ uniform suit. The sneakers also include an image of the character himself on the inside soles.
Because a SpongeBob SquarePants collaboration wouldn’t be complete without his best friend Patrick, another version of the Kyrie 5 sneaker is included in the collection that takes inspiration from the

Taco Bell Is Making a Sunglasses Collection

Taco lovers can now take their obsession to the next level — with Taco Bell sunglasses.
The American fast-food chain is teaming with Diff Charitable Eyewear for a capsule collection launching Friday that takes inspiration from many signature elements from Taco Bell, including its signature bell logo and its packets of hot sauce.
The five-piece collection offers kitschy updates on Diff Eyewear’s most popular styles, like the brand’s Luka visor-like style, which features the word “hot” branded over each lens. The style is also in an ombré yellow to red color scheme and includes a flame motif on the frame.
Also included are versions of the brand’s Sawyer style, including reading glasses that have cartoonish illustrations of tacos and hot sauce packets on its translucent frame and a black-frame version with the orange flame design seen throughout the collection.
The collaboration will be available on Diff Eyewear’s web site and at The Bell Hotel, Taco Bell’s upcoming, limited-time resort in Palm Springs, Calif., opening in August. Purchases of the styles will come with taco-shaped cases and a cleaning cloth that resembles a hot sauce packet.
The collection includes sunglasses, reading glasses and blue light glasses and retails for $ 85 to $ 95. As part of Diff

Bieber was involved in the conception of the product, collaborating with the brand on the name, packaging and custom scent — which is yet-to-be revealed. While the product is slated to launch in “fall 2019,” according to the company, there is no specific information on its composition and packaging.
In late March, Bieber announced on his Instagram that he would be taking a hiatus from the music world, instead focusing on his marriage and his mental health. He’s since released a new song, called “I Don’t Care,” with Ed Sheeran earlier this month and collaborated with DJ Khaled on the song, “No Brainer,” for the DJs latest album, “Father of Asahd.”

Game of Thrones Is Getting a Documentary About Making the Final Season

HBO announced Game of Thrones is getting a documentary about the making of the eighth and final season called Game of Thrones: The Last Watch.

This two-hour documentary debuts on HBO on May 26, one week after the series finale. Described as a chronicle of the show’s “most ambitious and complicated season,” The Last Watch “delves deep into the mud and blood to reveal the tears and triumphs involved in the challenge of bringing the fantasy world of Westeros to life in the very real studios, fields and car-parks of Northern Ireland.”

HBO is labeling The Last Watch documentary as a feature film, and considers it more than a making of documentary, calling it “a funny, heartbreaking story, told with wit and intimacy, about the bittersweet pleasures of what it means to create a world – and then have to say goodbye to it.”

Amid Men’s Wear Hype, Thoughtful Basics Are Making Noise, Too

It’s all about simplicity.
At a time when streetwear is dominating the conversation in the world of men’s fashion, there are a number of brands that are quietly building sizable businesses selling updated basics to guys who don’t live and die for the latest Supreme drop or Virgil Abloh sneaker collaboration.
Brands such as Buck Mason, Everlane, Goodlife and Huckberry are making inroads selling these items, which could be labeled “everyday casualwear” or “essentials.”
In years past, their customers probably bought their chinos, T-shirts and hoodies in department stores or specialty retailers such as Gap or Banana Republic. But today, they’re increasingly seeking out other options and spending their money on brands they feel better address their needs.
“They offer simple solutions,” said Wendy Liebmann, chief executive officer of WSL, a global strategy consultancy. “When you look at all the new businesses that are cropping up, they address the fundamental issue in the industry, which is that men are looking for something reasonable to wear that is comfortable and stylish.”
Liebmann believes the “increased lack of service” at department and large specialty stores, coupled with the “enormous” assortment offered “without curation,” is what is driving men to indie brands that are trend-right but not overwhelming.

BERLIN — Product will be moving into the forefront at the next Bread&&Butter in Berlin Aug. 31 to Sept. 2.
At a special B&&B preview here Wednesday, Zalando revealed the B2C festival, now dubbed “The Pop-up of Style and Culture” would be morphing into a real “see-now-buy-now” weekend packed with more than 100 limited-edition drops, exclusive products, collaborations and prelaunches from more than 40 brands. These can be purchased on site during B&&B at Berlin’s Arena as well as online. Also reflecting the push for more: a second ampersand is now officially part of the Bread&&Butter name. It had previously popped up in the event’s abbreviated form, but is now the official event name.
Moreover, Zalando will be launching a year-round shopping hub, breadandbutter.com, at the end of August. The online “destination for style and culture” will feature exclusive product drops and a trend assortment of selected streetwear brands, Zalando said.

Michelle Obama Says ‘Making Mistakes Was Not an Option’ for Barack as the First Black President

During a recent speech in New Orleans, former First Lady Michelle Obama opened up about race and the unique pressure she and husband Barack Obama faced in the White House during his time as the nation’s first black president.

“Barack and I knew very early that we would be measured by a different yardstick,” Obama, 54, said during a talk at the American Library Association’s annual conference in New Orleans on Friday. “Making mistakes was not an option for us. Not that we didn’t make mistakes, but we had to be good — no, we had to be outstanding — at everything we did. … When you’re the first, you’re the one that’s laying the red carpet down for others to follow.”

She also touched on the dangers of judging people by the color of their skin, something she says she’s experienced first-hand.

“It’s just a shame that sometimes people will see me, and they will only see my color, and then they’ll make certain judgments about that,” she said. “That’s dangerous, for us to dehumanize each other in that way. We are all just people.”

Obama’s appearance comes a few months before the release of her upcoming memoir, Becoming, due out in November.

The former first lady announced the title and release date for her book in a February statement to PEOPLE, saying, “Writing Becoming has been a deeply personal experience. It has allowed me, for the very first time, the space to honestly reflect on the unexpected trajectory of my life … how a little girl from the South Side of Chicago found her voice and developed the strength to use it to empower others.”

How Alife Is Making a Comeback

Rob Cristofaro and Treis Hill have bought back Alife and have a new investor.
Alife, which is now almost 20 years old, was originally founded as an artist collective and multibrand retail space by Cristofaro, Arnaud Delecolle, Tony Arcabascio and Tammy Brainard — Hill joined the team later. The company, which also operates Alife Rivington Club in the Lower East Side, a sneaker concept store that’s been open since 2001, and Alife, its apparel store that sits next to it, has been through a string of owners and financial partners, but it was most recently co-owned by Cristofaro, Hill and Seth Gerszberg, who is now no longer involved.
For the past couple of years, Alife — one of the original downtown streetwear brands that was founded when the term streetwear didn’t exist — has released a few things here and there, but Cristofaro and Hill have been mostly quiet and focused on cleaning up Alife’s global distribution and preparing for a true relaunch, which begins with an unlikely product collaboration with Crocs.

Cristofaro approached Crocs before the footwear brand re-entered the fashion conversation last October via a tie-in with Balenciaga on an imaginative, platform pair that retails for $ 850. The Alife

Cherah, which means “bright” in Indonesian, is not on public display. She and mom, who are both healthy, are taking some time to bond behind the scenes before they are introduced to zoo visitors some time in the next week or so.

The baby primate is sure to be a hit. Not only is she adorable, she seems to have a knack for comedy, often pulling funny faces in the Facebook photos the zoo has shared.

Snapchat Stock Drops $800 Million After Rihanna Condemned Ad Making Light of Domestic Violence

Less than a month after Kylie Jenner sent Snapchat stock into a downward spiral, another celebrity slam on the photo-sharing app has seemingly caused the company to take a major hit.

The stock prices of Snap Inc. fell around 4 percent on Thursday, reported CNN. The dip came after Rihanna responded to the app’s apology for running an ad for a game called “Would You Rather” asking users if they would rather slap Rihanna or punch her ex Chris Brown, alluding to a 2009 domestic violence incident. The market value of the app’s parent company dropped almost $ 800 million, according to the outlet.

On Friday, Snap’s stock fell another 1 percent, CNN reported.

Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel’s personal net worth dropped $ 150 million due to the decease, according to Forbes. He is currently worth an estimated $ 3.8 billion, Forbes reported.

Brown, now 28, was charged with two felony counts — assault and making criminal threats — and the exes reached a plea agreement that spared Brown jail time after he pleaded guilty to felony assault by means likely to cause great bodily injury.

After the social media app apologized on Tuesday for running the since-pulled ad, Rihanna responded via Instagram on Thursday.

“Now SNAPCHAT I know you already know you ain’t my fav app out there! But I’m just trying to figure out what the point was with this mess! I’d love to call it ignorance, but I know you ain’t that dumb!” the 30-year-old singer wrote in an Instagram Story.

“You spent money to animate something that would intentionally bring shame to DV victims and made a joke of it!!! This isn’t about my personal feelings, cause I don’t have much of them…but all the women, children and men that have been victims of DV in the past and especially the ones who haven’t made it out yet…you let us down!” Rihanna’s post continued.

“Shame on you,” she added. “Throw the whole app-oligy away.”

A lawyer for the Brown shared the following statement with PEOPLE: “Whoever conceived this at Snap Chat needs to be slapped.”

“This advertisement is disgusting and never should have appeared on our service. We are so sorry we made the terrible mistake of allowing it through our review process. We are investigating how that happened so that we can make sure it never happens again,” Snapchat said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter on Thursday.

After removing the ad from the app on Tuesday, Snapchat also released the following statement to the BBC: “The advert was reviewed and approved in error, as it violates our advertising guidelines. We immediately removed the ad last weekend, once we became aware. We are sorry that this happened.”

Last month, Snapchat’s stock dropped $ 1.3 billion in market value, according to Time, after Jenner revealed to her followers that she no longer opens the app.

The outlet also reported Wall Street analyst Mark May downgraded the stock to sell from neutral after the app’s redesign sparked negative reviews from users.

Sean John at 20: Sean Combs on Longevity and Making a Difference

While his name may have changed more times than some people change cars, there has been at least one constant for Sean Combs over the past 20 years: The Sean John brand.
The label’s founder, born Sean John Combs, has been known as Puffy, Puff Daddy, P. Diddy, Diddy and now, Love. But for the hip-hop entrepreneur, they’re all just names that reflect different periods in his life. Call him what you will — his success speaks for itself.
His earnings in 2017 alone, according to Forbes, were $ 130 million and his net worth is estimated at $ 820 million, edging out even Jay Z, who is worth a mere $ 810 million.
Not bad for someone who dropped out of business school in his sophomore year. Now, at 48, Combs has a multipronged career that covers not only fashion but music, TV production, athletes’ beverages and vodka. And, of course, he travels with his own entourage – at his WWD shoot, 17 people arrived well ahead of the star. Given all his activities, getting face time with Combs can be a challenge, hence the reason Sean John’s vice president of design arrived with storyboards and line sheets for the holiday 2018 collection, which he

STREET SIGNS: The Making of a Celebrity Sneaker Deal

Reebok spent a year courting Future.
The relationship began in 2015 when the company started seeding the artist, whose real name is Nayvadius Wilburn, with shoes to wear. Then the team began attending his shows, inviting him to Reebok’s headquarters in Massachusetts and detailing how both parties could help each other.
“They made an effort to connect with him,” said Ebonie Ward, Future’s brand manager. “It wasn’t about sending e-mails. They told him they didn’t want to take advantage of him as an artist and use his fan base. They wanted to build a partnership with him. That’s what sealed the deal with Future. It wasn’t about him throwing on a pair of shoes and thinking people are going to just buy them.”
Athletic companies tapping celebrities, specifically hip-hop artists, isn’t a new concept. In fact, 14 years ago, Reebok offered Jay-Z a deal — the first of its kind — that led to the commercially successful S. Carter sneakers, which, when released, were one of the brand’s best-selling products. But the structure of today’s deals, and the climate around them, has evolved and Future’s relationship with Reebok reflects how the market has shifted.

‘Homeboy’s Gonna, Like, Get It:’ Bella Hadid’s Slang-Filled Sneaker Shopping Video Is Making the Internet Insane

Bella Hadid often makes headlines for her nearly-nude looks, her fierce poses and smoldering selfies (and belfies). But this time, the 21-year-old supermodel has caught the Internet’s attention with her linguistics.

Hadid recently appeared on Complex‘s Sneaker Shopping where she met with Joe La Puma at Kith in New York City to chat about her love for sneakers and her partnership with Nike.

When the subject turned to “sexy tennis shoes,” Hadid opened up about the role sneakers play in her love life.

“Sneakers on a man is definitely the first thing I look at … I mean, come on. Matching shoes, that’s dope,” Hadid began, before picking up different shoes.

“I don’t mind dirty sneakers but they better be fresh,” she explained. “If homeboy’s coming through with these, it’s quiet. Yeah, no, it’s quiet for him. But, like, if he comes through in, like these. You got some Air Maxes out here, you got some Jordans. Homeboy’s gonna, like, get it.”

In true Twitter fashion, social media users immediately on Hadid’s quotes and started riffing on them, as seen above.

Others accused the model of trying to sound cool, with one even tweeting “Why does Bella Hadid sound like she’s trying to convince a group of underprivileged teens that drugs are wack.”

“I see Bella hadid in the corner of my room repeating ‘dope’ and ‘homeboy’ when I’m having sleep paralysis,” one Twitter user wrote.

Rihanna And Lupita Nyong’o Are Officially Making A Film With Ava DuVernay

It all started with a tweet. 

The Rihanna and Lupita Nyong’o movie dreamt up by Twitter users and propelled to viral fame is set to become a reality. Netflix nabbed the rights in “a very aggressive bid” at the Cannes Film Festival, Entertainment Weekly reported. 

Back in April, @blaquepink shared an iconic 2014 photo of Rihanna and Nyong’o seated together at Paris Fashion Week. 

User @1800SADGAL responded that the pair looked like the perfect duo. 

And thus a movie idea was born. Rihanna and Nyong’o were game. 

Ava DuVernay will direct and Issa Rae is set to write, according to EW. DuVernay and Rae were also recruited by determined Twitter users. 

 “I really think it shows the power of people wanting to see stories that are women-centered, women of color-centered that are made by women of color,” DuVernay told TIME last month. “I think it was really interesting that after Rihanna and Lupita were in the picture and the story went viral, it wasn’t about who’s the male lead or who’s the sidekick, it was about who’s going to write it? Who’s going to direct it?”

“I think that is really interesting about people’s interest in who’s creating and who’s telling the story and especially on Twitter where everyone is telling their own story,” she continued. “We’ll see what happens.”

Reps for Rae told Vanity Fair that the Twitter users who came up with the idea “will be credited and included in some form.”  

Needless to say, everyone is pretty excited.

This K-Pop Band With No Korean Members Is Making People Angry

An unconventional K-pop group is attempting to dominate the Korean music industry, but the genre’s fans aren’t exactly singing its praises. 

EXP Edition, a K-pop boy band that doesn’t have a single Korean member, just released a new music video for their song “Feel Like This.” While the mostly-white, American group’s video made headlines, the release also opened up a discussion about the band’s place in the Korean music industry. 

After seeing the band sing in Korean and adopt K-pop style, Asians across the internet definitely weren’t afraid to sound off on the subject. And let’s just say, many of them won’t be listening to EXP Edition on repeat. 

The band, which calls itself “a fresh hybrid of K-pop,” actually started out back in 2014 as South Korean artist Bora Kim’s master’s degree thesis project at Columbia University. Kim explained that her goal was to explore identity politics, masculinity and other topics. 

“I was thinking about cultural flow, or the relationship of dominant culture and peripheral culture, and how that is interwoven with one’s identity or one’s national identity,” Kim, who initially pulled in friends Karin Kuroda and Samantha Shao to help with the band, explained. “I wanted to see what would happen if I made American boys into K-pop performers, by teaching them how to sing in Korean and act like Korean boys, and complicate this flow/appropriation even more…”

But since then, the band has grown to be much more than a college project and its members have even relocated to Seoul to infiltrate the Korean market. With this new single, however, dedicated K-pop fans don’t seem happy with the American group. Many called EXP out for appropriating Korean culture, since none of the members have Korean roots. In fact, shortly before moving to Korea, they admitted that they knew very little about the culture. 

“We haven’t been introduced to much of the culture,” Koki Tomlinson, the sole Asian, half-Japanese member of the group, told Fusion last year. “We have a very basic understanding of it, just because we’ve really only listened to K-pop.”

Several also criticized the group’s performance quality, asking why the band didn’t incorporate any choreography, an iconic element to K-pop, in their video. But one of the most vocalized criticisms was the way in which the all-American group decided to enter an Asian music industry when Asian artists and those of Asian descent barely ever make it in America’s. 

Indeed, Asian artists have had a tough time succeeding as they’ve often been rejected for “looking” Asian. Harlemm Lee, an artist of Chinese and Filipino descent, won the NBC reality show “Fame” in 2003 and even scored a record contract. However, he still struggled to have a successful career.  

“In terms of finding an advocate in the industry, the Asian thing has been the critical factor,” Lee told The New York Times years ago. “You don’t fit.”

The Korean music industry is one place where Asians dominate and some K-pop fans feel there’s a double standard at play when a completely non-Korean band just slides in. 

The criticisms haven’t deterred Kim and her crew from continuing their work, though. She told The Huffington Post in an email that she admits cultural appropriation is an issue, but insists that’s not what her group is doing. She feels the band isn’t appropriating because they are immersed in the K-pop scene. 

“K-pop has become an important part of our identity (professionally and personally) and that no one can deny. We are living, breathing, creating K-pop, collaborating with people in the K-pop industry every day,” she said. “So to conclude, if you ask me if we’re appropriating K-pop, I’m going to say No … We are already genuinely a part of K-pop.”

Well, if the new music video serves as any indication of their style and vibe, the band is undeniably off to a rocky start.

Jessica Chastain Won’t Take Roles Until She Knows What Male Stars Are Making

Jessica Chastain is officially done making less money than her male costars. 

The “Zero Dark Thirty” star, who is a vocal supporter of closing the wage gap in Hollywood and beyond, revealed in an interview with Variety on Monday that she now refuses roles with unequal wages based on principle. (In 2015, Chastain told HuffPost she made a small fraction of what Matt Damon was paid for “The Martian.”)

“I’m not taking jobs anymore where I’m getting paid a quarter of what the male co-star is being paid,” Chastain told Variety. “I’m not allowing that in my life.”

Chastain stated that when negotiating for roles, she makes it a point to ask producers about what they’re offering her in comparison to the men in the film.

“I don’t care about how much I get paid; I’m in an industry where we’re overcompensated for the work we do,” the actress explained. “But I don’t want to be on a set where I’m doing the same work as someone else and they’re getting five times what I’m getting.”

The actress admits that sticking to her convictions and her principles hasn’t always been easy. Chastain revealed that she recently turned down “something huge” because of the wage gap issue. 

“I turned it down, and they didn’t come back. I remember afterwards I was like, ‘What did I do? Maybe it was a mistake,’” Chastain said.  

“But it wasn’t, because everyone in the studio system heard what I did. So what you’re doing is creating a reputation: Don’t bring Jessica something where she’s not being fairly compensated compared to the male actor. Even though I lost that film, I’ve created a boundary. I drew a line in the sand.”

Head over to Variety to read the full interview.

5 Skin Care Tips For Making Sure Your Melanin Flourishes This Spring

Spring has officially sprung!

And while many people are thinking about decluttering their space and breaking out sundresses and shorts, they may forget that their skin care regimen could use some spring cleaning, too.

Dermatologist Brooke A. Jackson, M.D., told The Huffington Post a few key things people of color should be doing to ensure our skin, our body’s largest organ, remains glowing and healthy through the seasonal changes. 

From sun protection to getting rid of discoloration, the North Carolina-based doctor has five necessary tips that keep your melanin on fleek this spring and summer.

1. Lighten up your routine

Just as you change your wardrobe, you should change your products. Put away the jars of heavy body butters and creams, and opt for something lighter, Jackson advises.

You start wearing shorts and T-shirts and so you should do the same with your products,” she said. “So generally we recommend in the winter time, you use a big jar of something you actually scoop. And in the spring and the summer, you can go a little bit lighter with something that has a little bit more lotion; like Vaseline Cocoa Radiant is a good choice because you still get the moisturizing effect because it’s got the micro droplets of Vaseline jelly and 100 percent pure cocoa butter in it but it’s not quite as heavy as some other jar products are.” 

 

2. Stay moisturized

We tend to do more activities that can dry out our skin in the summer, like going to the beach or taking a dip in the pool. Jackson told HuffPost that it’s important to moisturize afterward, especially after being exposed to chlorine, which is “very, very drying.”

In addition to lathering up in the morning, she said swimmers should rinse all of the saltwater or pool water off and use lotion. Jackson said this doesn’t just apply to people who swim but people with certain skin conditions as well. 

“Generally, I would say you should moisturize once to twice a day depending on what’s going on with you,” she said. “Certainly, if somebody has drier skin or if they’ve got eczema, they probably need a little bit more moisture and so two full moisturizing processes a day would be great … A lot of people during the spring and summer will probably do just fine with the once coming out of the shower in the morning.”

3. Go with your own glow

Despite the widespread myth, black people do need sunscreen. Jackson said this idea probably stemmed from people of color historically being excluded from certain medical research. 

“Historically we focused on sunburn and a direct correlation between sunburn and skin cancer and so therefore [the message was only] our fair-skinned counterparts get it,” she said. “That message has been loud and clear for many, many years but [there’s an assumption that] people who have darker skin tend not to burn.”

If you’re going to chase the sun, protect yourself, she said.

“I think it’s really important to make sure that we are all sun protecting ourselves because it is not out of the realm of possibilities that skin cancer will develop,” Jackson explained. “So going with your own glow, not actively seeking tanning at the beach or just going out for a run, just making sure that you’re sun protected.”

It also doesn’t hurt that sunscreen can help get rid of discoloration.

4. Remember less is more

One product that locks and seals moisture is better (and more practical) than a cabinet full of products that you hardly use. Jackson said people should pick a product that can do multiple things for you and stick to it. 

“Keep your regimen simple,” she said. 

5. When all else fails, see a doctor

Dermatologists have the answers specific to your skin that your favorite YouTube vlogger may not have. Jackson said many of the skin problems people of color face (discoloration, hyperpigmentation, etc.) can only be healed by getting to the root of the issue.

“I have a lot of patients who try everything under the kitchen sink and then with their girlfriends and everything on the internet and they don’t make an appointment with a dermatologist who can help them out in 10 minutes or less,” Jackson said. “Discoloration is a huge issue with skin of color and we get discoloration from any inflammatory condition, acne, eczema, etc., so again, a reason to make sure that you’re getting the treatment that you need to make sure that that is controlled is because 9 times out of 10, the number one complaint of patients with skin color is I want an even complexion and I want this discoloration to go away.”

Jackson also said since black dermatologists aren’t accessible to everyone, it’s important for people with melanin to ask if their dermatologist knows how to treat darker skin.

Now, go forth and prosper with a fresh glow to your skin.

Dave Chappelle Wants Comedians To Stop Making The Same Donald Trump Jokes

Saturday Night Live” is experiencing a creative renaissance and its biggest ratings in two decades under Donald Trump’s presidency. But Dave Chappelle has a message for fellow comedians enjoying the fruits of the administration’s blunders: “Trump’s kind of bad for comedy.”

Speaking with CBC on Sunday, Chappelle offered his take on the current president’s relationship with his chosen profession, agreeing that comedy has “a role to play under Trump,” but warning that there’s a risk of regurgitating the same material. 

“Most comics in the states are starting to do the same jokes, just because Trump is so on everybody’s mind,” he said. “So it’ll be nice when we don’t have to talk about him that much.”

Despite his concerns over Trump’s omnipresence, Chappelle said he still believes the state of comedy today is “strong and healthy,” citing the return of some of his favorites like Chris Rock and Jon Stewart to the game.

“I think that most of these guys you see working are wildly courageous,” he explained. “It’s such a strange time, being bombarded with so much information, and I think comedy is an important valve for syphoning through all that.”

In November, Chappelle hosted the first “Saturday Night Live” episode after the election and delivered a stirring opening monologue in response to Trump’s surprise win. After joking that America actually elected “an internet troll as our president,” he recalled a recent visit to the White House for a BET event that made him feel hopeful about the country’s direction. 

 “I saw how happy everybody was, these people who had been historically disenfranchised, and it made me feel hopeful, and it made me feel proud to be an American,” Chappelle said. “So, in that spirit, I’m wishing Donald Trump luck. I’m going to give him a chance, and we, the historically disenfranchised, demand that he give us one too.”

For more from Chappelle, you can watch his two comedy specials that premiere on Netflix this month.

Austin Couple Is Obsessed with Making Ice Cream You Can Feel Good About Eating

Episode 10 of AMERICAN DOERS, a new 12-part video series featuring original thinkers, innovators, craftspeople, risk-takers and artisans across the United States.

Meet Chad Palmatier and Anthony Sobotik. Together they run Lick Honest Ice Creams. But what does it mean for ice cream to be honest?

In 2010, the couple sold their home in Ohio, moved to Austin, Texas, and opened Lick Honest Ice Creams with a mandate to use only wholesome ingredients from local farmers.

“We want to support our local dairies and farmers,” Sobotik says. “That’s really important to us.”

With Sobotik dreaming up inventive flavors (Cilantro Lime, Texas Sheet Cake and Dewberry Corn Cobler), they’ve created a product you can feel good about eating.

For more American Doers, go to americandoers.people.com.

“All of our produce and all of the chocolate, goat cheese, honey and olive oil we use comes from local farmers and artisans,” Sobotik adds. “We’re trying to work as much with the small farmers as we can. It’s a win-win.

Palmatier adds, “It’s our whole mission — just keeping everything super local.”

And it all comes back to the simple joy of ice cream.

“We know how happy ice cream makes people because it makes us happy as well,” Sobotik says. “And then getting to work with all these farmers and artisans, we have a great group that we work with.

“We get to make a product that gives joy to people.”

Exclusive Video Release of the Making of Lowland Hum’s New Album ‘Thin’

2016-11-23-1479934787-6404030-TqxfGnkz4qh9ekzh2PJAnxB35b0oFdL0meVtUMLeO4Iu1zUrjaWk78CTevTtl6fPEHRoYGeWQVKEkeA39GHbYhCR_c9TgfxoXZ2TSNPc1CjmlBiJBfzOvM7RQjSJ9f9diCgpAWxr6QyIuRos0de1ft.jpg

It’s safe to say that in the cacophony that has been this political season, we are all looking for some peace.

“It’s such a noisy time in history, people want something quieter,” says Daniel Goans, one half of the duo that makes up Lowland Hum.

Indeed. And one need look no further than this husband-wife team, who just finished up their fourth album, “Thin,” which is due out Feb. 10, 2017.

The other half, and some may refer to her as his better half, Lauren Goans says that when it came time to record “Thin,” they wanted to get back to their roots. “When we started doing music together, it was just the two of us,” she says.

As the couple’s sound palate grew, so did the band. They hired musicians to go on the road. “In the end, we realized we wanted to be more true to who we are, just the two of us,” Lauren continues. “I feel like it’s a coming back to the beginning, but we are different people now.”

Daniel adds, “This album incorporates some of what we did in larger musical settings but distills it down. We make a quiet kind of music.”

And fans are in for a treat because they can watch the making of “Thin” in this exclusive video release right here, right now.

From the outset, this duo, who are originally from Greensboro, North Carolina, has written, arranged and produced their own music.

The Goans now call Charlottesville, Virginia, home and that’s where they recorded “Thin” in a friend’s attic and filmed the video in the couple’s apartment.

“Part of the vision for the video, and really for what we do in general, is we are trying to combine a voice out of two perspectives,” Lauren explains. “We wanted to give a picture of what our life was like.”

For example, the tea that plays a starring role in the video “was a big part of our life,” while they were recording, Lauren adds.

The audio from the video, which was produced by Pando Creative Co., was recorded in the place where the couple recorded “Thin,” Daniel explains.

“We set up a microphone and she asked me questions and then I asked her questions,” he says, adding that they try to be individuals and not diminish each other but the combination creates the whole that is Lowland Hum, which is also reflected in the duo’s name.

Lauren says, “Picking a name for yourself is weird. You want it to be of the same spirit. Then one morning I saw the two words, Lowland and Hum, together in my mind. I am a visual person. A lot of what we write about is hard to pin down. Threads buzzing with electricity connecting things. The name alluded to it. It’s much more mysterious, kind of like songwriting. A lot coming from outside the creative process is mysterious. I think it came from beyond us.”

The paired formed as a musical duo in 2012, not long after they were wed, and have released an album each year since. You may have had a chance to catch them at such festivals as Phuzz Phest in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, or Scythian’s Appaloosa Roots Music Fest in Front Royal, Virginia, but their big break came when they caught the attention of NPR’s Bob Bolin, whose team produces the now famous “Tiny Desk” concert series.

“That gave us legitimacy,” Daniel says. “Nothing else has had that kind of effect.”

Watch Lowland Hum’s Tiny Desk concert here.

But what really makes these two click is making music — together. “I wake up every day and say, ‘Let’s go, let’s go, let’s go. We really do just love it. I think we feel the most that we are where we are supposed to be when we are creating something together.”

Lauren adds, “This is what we’re best at.”

You can listen for yourself live when Lowland Hum opens for Josh Ritter in Charlotte, North Carolina, on Dec. 2 and in Richmond, Virginia, on Dec. 3 and with Mountain Chaser in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, on Dec. 9. The duo embarks on headlining dates during the first part of 2017 to support the release of “Thin,” according to their publicist.

Concentrating upon the candidates’ own perceptions of the need to build coalitions that will elect them, he raises questions that go to the heart of presidential politics: how have changes in presidential campaigns influenced candidate strategies? what coalitions did presidential contenders try to put together? how did the candidates use rhetoric, campaign travel, and symbolism in their coalition building? what did candidates learn from their audiences in their months and years on the campaign trail? what do these lessons imply for political leadership and coalition building? To answer these questions, he draws on interviews with ninety advisors to candidates and on data taken from the candidates’ travels and speeches, press coverage, and audience reactions. His findings reveal a surprising consistency in the approach to building an electoral majority.

‘The Artist’s Compass’: Making a Life in the Performing Arts

2016-05-03-1462304247-5475380-ArtistsCompassCoverImage.jpg

He was a self-taught musician who fought epic battles with music industry giants to gain control of his work. He championed the rights of artists at a time of great upheaval in the entertainment business, when the ability of artists to earn a living plummeted. If you are an artist who is less inclined to brandish a middle finger at the industry — as Prince did — or are not yet in a position to do so, then Rachel Moore’s new book, The Artist’s Compass, may be an invigorating read.

In years past, there were many large companies willing to invest in the development of young artists with talent, but those are fast disappearing, and it is becoming more and more important for emerging artists to become self-starters and create their own opportunities. The incubators for developing artists may be largely gone, but so are the gatekeepers, which means that anyone can create their own opportunities if they’re clever enough, determined enough, and talented enough to assess the marketplace and take advantage of what’s out there.

This sober, graceful “guide to building a life and a living in the performing arts” — remarkably compact for such a sweeping purpose — packs much useful information into its 180 pages. Perhaps its greatest value lies in its consolidation of nitty-gritty advice and broader, philosophical food for thought. Aimed at young people who aspire to a career in the arts, as well as those who are reinventing themselves in the arts, The Artist’s Compass tackles practical matters of self-marketing, auditions, employment contracts, personal budgeting and finance; it also steers the reader through critical career decisions, girding them to face the more common challenges, while smartly avoiding a “one size fits all” approach.

Most newly trained artists will find themselves operating as freelancers, working intermittently, figuring out where their next gig will come from and how to pay the rent until then. They will have been trained by experts but, as Moore sagely points out, “most teachers who are expert in their respective artistic disciplines are not necessarily expert in the business of the performing arts.”

That business has been profoundly altered — for better and for worse — by changes in demand and by advances in technology. Moore advises emerging artists on how to assemble their ‘personal board of directors,’ and how to harness tech not only to help them build their brand but also to streamline the logistics of their daily lives.

A leading arts administrator, Moore is impeccably positioned to deliver this wide-ranging advice. Once a struggling artist herself, she saw her career in the corps de ballet of American Ballet Theatre cut short by injury at age 24, went to university, then rose to become the CEO of American Ballet Theatre. She is now President and CEO of The Music Center in Los Angeles. The thoughtful insights in The Artist’s Compass reflect not just her own personal experience, but also that of an array of talents including Sigourney Weaver, Renée Fleming, Lang Lang, Misty Copeland, Natalia Makarova, and Daniil Simkin.

Simkin, who has a massive social media following, shares his thoughts on social media do’s and don’ts.

Copeland understands that fame often fuels a backlash, and has employed an admirable strategy for dealing with online vitriol.

Moore’s own comical experience being interviewed for Vogue magazine offers a valuable lesson in handling the press.

A vital chapter entitled ‘When things go wrong’ tackles nettlesome matters like workplace harassment sensibly and spiritedly. However, some of the space devoted to the perils of apartment subletting and traffic violations could more profitably have been diverted to navigating the increasingly common minefields in the music and arts world, such as breaches of intellectual property. Where penalties can be crippling, it is wise to be forearmed.

A list of books by experts in finance and other fields can be found under ‘Further reading.’ But a few topics such as IP, partnerships, and situations that call for the creation of separate business entities, bear touching upon in this bird’s eye view.

Another area that merits exploration is fundraising, the cause of much angst among freelance artists. How can an artist chase grants if she can’t afford a professional grant writer? Is crowd-funding all it’s cracked up to be?

Among the many pearls of wisdom in The Artist’s Compass, one finds exhortations to explore other art forms, to engage with the world, to prioritize a formal education, and to consider making a home outside the major art capitals. Moore makes a compelling case for each practice she advocates. She also has advice on eating and sleeping. I vaguely remember my mother saying something along those lines, but, as is often the case, a parent’s authority wanes in those late teen years. The Artist’s Compass packs a lot more power than one parent’s voice. Frank and engagingly written, it is likely to become a trusted resource for many an artist, even for those who are further along in their careers.

Many artists become fearful when they hear the words “negotiate a contract.” Visions of used-car dealers and fast-talking salesmen dance in their heads. Don’t be afraid… It isn’t about winning or losing, it is about finding common ground.

The Simple Beauty Resolutions Allure Editors Are Making This Year

Does anyone actually want to start their new year with daunting tasks, like learning a new language or forgoing gluten? Instead of overwhelming overhauls, our editors are planning simple beauty tweaks and little lifestyle improvements that are a snap to maintain—and are a hell of a lot more actionable than those grandiose-yet-vague mantras that also tend to crop up this time of year (looking at you, “live life to the fullest”). And besides, maybe we don’t want to stop replacing entire meals with cookies, OK?

Getting a group of people to agree unanimously on something isn’t easy. Case in point: the 2016 elections. But in the Allure offices, we freakishly all agree that there were a number of new products this year that changed the course of our lives forever. OK, that’s dramatic, but they did give us cleaner hair, sharper cat eyes, and longer lashes than we’ve experienced in the past. These are the best new products we obsessed over in 2015.

‘Manufactured’ Masculinity: Making Imperial Manliness, Morality and Militarism

‘Manufactured’ Masculinity: Making Imperial Manliness, Morality and Militarism


‘Manufactured’ Masculinity should be considered essential reading for scholars in the humanities and social sciences at every level and in all parts of the academic world. It weaves together brilliantly the elements of the ‘manufacture’ of masculinity in the period world-famous ‘public’ school system for the privileged which serviced the largest empire, the world has ever known, at the zenith of its control and which has had a significant influence in the formation of the modern world. This authoritative study of the making of British imperial masculinity shines light on the period of Muscular Christianity, Social Darwinism and Militarism as meshed ideological instruments of both power and persuasion.

This magisterial study reveals the extraordinary and paramount influence of games fields as the ‘machine tools’ in an ‘industrial process’ with the schools as ‘workshops’ containing ‘cultural conveyor-belts’ for the production of robust, committed and confident servants of empire, and templates for imperial reproduction in imperial possessions. Mainly on efficient ‘production belt’ playing fields of the privileged minds were moulded, attitudes were constructed and bodies shaped – for imperial manhood. Earlier ‘manliness’ was metamorphosized, morality was redefined and militarism at the high point of imperial grandeur was an adjunct. Professor Mangan outlines this unique process of cultural conditioning with a unique range of evidence and analysis.

This book was published as a special double issue of the International Journal of the History of Sport.
