Blue Ivy Carter Is A Mogul In The Making With Her Latest Money Move

Beyonce isn't the only one turning lemons into lemonade.

Celebrity News

What exactly did Blue Ivy say back when people were speculating about the way she was rocking her natural hair? Nothing because she could not talk, she was a baby. And while it is disturbing that so many people had and continue to have something to say about how little black girls wear their hair the way it naturally grows, it is the harsh reality that they face. These little girls turn into young women who deal with that obstacle during different walks of life, from relationships to the workforce.

The thing about Blue is the first sentence I ever heard her speak was, "Never seen a ceiling in my whole life." And right then and there, I knew Ms. Carter was gonna be a force to be reckoned with. She is being taught that she holds the power to change harsh realities.

One of her newest endeavors is taking up the opportunity to narrate the audiobook Hair Love by Oscar-winning director Matthew A. Cherry. Hair Love originally debuted as a short film that told the story of a father learning to do his daughter's hair in its natural state, and acted as an ode to black fathers and daughters and the love of natural hair. After its success, Cherry adapted it into a physical children's book, then enlisted the help of Vashti Harrison with illustrations.

Whether Blue realized it or not, she helped her own mother to embrace natural hair again, giving birth to the 'edges kinky' version of Beyonce that we've come to know and love.

At only eight years old, the carefree, intelligent, socially conscious young lady already has many accomplishments under her belt, including being the youngest recipient of a BET Award and throwing Black women the bag. What is so endearing to see is that her mogul parents are teaching her how to use her voice at an early age to impact others without necessarily telling her what to say. Though she lives a very luxurious life, the most valuable thing that her parents are giving her is absolutely free, yet one of the hardest things for parents to do: the freedom to be herself.

Blue, you're doing amazing sweetie!

Willow And Jaden Smith Walk To The Beats Of Their Own Drums

In addition to being kids of black Hollywood power couple Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, Willow and Jaden have paved impressive careers for themselves by marching to the beat of their own drum. While Willow was primed to become a popstar phenom as a child with the success of her hit "Whip My Hair", she took a step back and decided to make music that moves her. Now the solo artist divides her time between making music, co-hosting the Emmy-nominated talk show Red Table Talk, and modeling when the cameras turn on.

Her older brother Jaden had a similar path. After his breakout role starring as his father's son in Pursuit of Happyness, Jaden briefly delved into acting before deciding to focus on music. Jaden struck gold with his 2017 debut album Syre, which spun hits like "Icon". In addition to his music, Jaden also gives back through his company, Just Water, which has a mission to create a cheap water filtration system that will allow for accessibility in poorer nations and areas of the world.

These days, the sisters still move as a unit, working as integral parts of the relaunch of the Baby Phat brand, including their work with Baby Phat Beauty.

Aside from that, Ming Lee is taking Baby Phat from the 99' to the 2020s with her natural modeling abilities in front of the camera. While Aoki Lee juggles working behind the scenes with taking her baby phat to Harvard's Class of 2023.

The Combs Kids Shut Down The Industry In Their Own Way

Quincy has also added some acting roles underneath his belt, including a starring role in the hit show Star.

Twins Jessie and D'Lila are using their natural modeling skills gifted from the late and beautiful Kim Porter to collaborate with brands like Missguided along with their sister Chance. All of the Combs kids have stock in taking their fashion influence to the next level. How could they not? Look at their pops.

As the saying goes, there is nothing new underneath the sun. So it comes as no surprise that something as groundbreaking as the graphic eyeliner look trend from a couple of years ago is making its rounds again as a must-try beauty trend for the fall season. Saying goodbye to the traditional thick-wit-it non-floating winged liner and hello to the new wave of if-it's-up-then-it's-up-then-it's-stuck eye makeup looks is the ultimate fall beauty move. It's the floating crease for us.

Reading is by far one of the easiest ways to press pause and escape. Some books are page-turners, keeping you on the edge of your seat with each and every thrill. Other books are filled to the brim with intrigue. Other books are filled with so much heat between their pages, it's a wonder how erotica can almost feel as tantalizing as the real thing. Above all, we can read books for knowledge. It was author Stephen King who said, "Books are a uniquely portable magic." We learn, we love, we fantasize, we feel, and we heal from these portals of hundreds of pages offering food for thought. How could books not be magic?

A couple of years ago, I had significant breakthrough in so many areas of my life. At first, it felt overwhelming to process so much guilt, shame, blame, resentment, and anger. There was so much digging I had to do to understand my journey — let alone accept areas in my life that I felt deprived of and to see the lessons in it regardless. It was a rude awakening to see all the things I was carrying for years emotionally and mentally, and I never thought it was necessary to pause and find tools to work through a lot of my issues. However, this transformative experience made me hungry for healing.

I've got quite a few male friends. Also, because of what I do for a living, I have many male clients too. While there are a billion-and-one reasons why I'm actually grateful to be able to say this, probably my top favorite one is that I get to hear a lot of men's innermost thoughts — things that sometimes they are hesitant to say because they're not sure how we'll take it and/or things they've never really felt comfortable being very open about and/or — and yes, this happens — things they never get asked their thoughts on and so, they never bring those things up.
