Lizzo Just Signed Her First Major Beauty Contract


Mirror, mirror on the wall / Don't say it, 'cause I know I'm cute, oh baby.

Lizzo has been lit up like a crystal ball and now, both the entertainment industry and the world and at large finally understand the magnitude of her shine. We're a little more than halfway through the year, and Lizzo is definitely winning. Only week after snatching all of our edges back-to-back at both the MTV and BET Awards, Lizzo recently announced another major money move that proves that it pays to be different.

Last week, Lizzo and Urban Decay revealed an epic collaboration for their latest collection, "Pretty Different" which also features Joey King (The Act), as well as Colombian reggaeton singer Karol G, CL, and Ezra Miller; and apparently the "Truth Hurts" singer is just as psyched about it as we are. In a social media announcement that featured a clip from Urban Decay's new Black Mirror-style advertisement, she wrote:


The collection is a part of Urban Decay's initiative to diversify what we consider as beautiful and show the beauty industry that there's far more than one shade of pretty. Wendy Zonmir, one of Urban Decay's founder partners, had this to say about the collection:

"'Pretty Different' is our anthem for fellow makeup junkies who don't subscribe to beauty standards. It's our tribute to individuality because everyone is pretty different. It's our approach to reinventing what it means to be a beauty brand."

If you have been on social media for any significant amount of time this year you may have come across women saying that they are in their “villain era.” For these women, being a villain means embracing the negativity and judgment from others that comes when you say “no” to people, and living your life unapologetically. For them, being a villain means letting the chips fall where they may when you no longer allow other people’s ideas about you to restrict you from living the life that you want and deserve.

How Each Of The Zodiac Signs Get Over A Break-Up

Have you ever wondered how some people tend to get over breakups easily, and others have more of a difficult time? The zodiac signs are always telling a story, and the story of love is written in the stars. Some signs naturally follow their emotions more and live by the heart. Others signs focus on balancing their head with their heart and can rationalize this type of change in their life, such as a breakup. People get over breakups in their own way and in their own time, but wouldn’t it be nice to understand more about how you process this experience yourself, or how someone you know or have been involved with gets over a breakup?

'Abbott Elementary' Proves That TV Can Build Community

The first time I thought about how art could be a form of community building was with HBO’s Insecure. The dearly departed comedy series created and starring Issa Rae provided audiences with more than just weekly laughs over the course of five years, but it also created space for other Black artists and entrepreneurs to thrive-- from all the Black businesses that the show has collaborated with to the Black music artists that the show has put audiences onto. It even created opportunities within entertainment journalism for many up and coming Black journalists who got their start by reviewing the show or hosting after shows unpacking the mess that went on in the episode.
