Kanye West New Cover Art For "Cold"


Sooo KanyeWest has changed the cover art and name of his lead single "Way Too Cold" (aka "Theraflu") once again.

The original design, which featured a bare-breasted woman's torso and a bottle of Theraflu, was edited once the cough syrup company protested against West's use of their product. Kanye eventually removed the bottle, leaving a stark white void in its place. 

What do you think of the new album art?


Original "Cold" artwork featured a bare-breasted woman and bottle of Theraflu cough syrup in lieu of a head.


The second installment of "Cold" (renamed "Way Too Cold") featured the same bare-breasted woman with a white void in lieu of the original Therfalu bottle.

[Video] Spring/Summer Fashion Trend Color Neon!


Summer is just around the corner and the neon trend is in full effect. Check out some fashion tips from stylist Lauren Messiah on how to rock this trend without over doing it. I recently got a neon print dress that I will be rockin' in Miami this week. Stay tuned in the meanwhile see what Lauren has to say about this summer trend.


Neon Styling Tips …

#1- Tone your look down by pairing neon with pastels. Try mixing a pair of neon pink jeans with a light pink top for an on trend/ not-as-blinding look.




#2- Rock a classic black dress with a day-glo pair of pumps. You can embrace the trend without looking like you’re trying too hard




#3- For a bolder look try neon color blocking. I love the combing orange and green for citrusy spring look.




#4- Don’t spend a ton of cash on this trend. H&M, Zara, and TopShop have a great selection of neon pieces for less right now.

Pusha T Goes In On Drake Subliminally & Lil Wayne Responds Not So Subliminally


It’s well documented that Pusha T isn’t Drake’s biggest fan, so when subliminal disses are implemented in his music, people tend to think he’s referring to the Canadian rapper. “Exodus 23:1” is the latest record in question, and the line of controversy is introduced in the first verse.

“Contract all f*cked up/I guess that means you all f*cked up/You signed to one nigga that’s signed to another nigga that’s signed to three niggas.”
Though Pusha doesn’t blatantly call Drake’s name, Lil’ Wayne is convinced the G.O.O.D. Music rapper is throwing shots at the Young Money singer-songwriter. He tweeted a not-so-subtle response to Pusha’s subliminal diss.

“Fuk pusha t and anybody that love em.”

[Video] Nas Covers Complex Magazine June/July Issue


Nas covers June/July issue of Complex Magazine with the caption Life Is Good which is also the title of his up coming album. But Life didn’t seem so great for Nas a few years ago, when he went through a divorce with his ex-wife Kelis that resulted in him having to shell out tons of money in child and spousal support while his personal business and finances were on public display. He’s now back on his feet and looking at life from a better perspective while patching up relationships with his ex as well as his daughter, Destiny.

In the Complex Cover Story, he talks candidly about his former relationship with Kelis, his perspective on marriages and money he lost as well as feeling guilty for not being in his daughter’s life as much as he would have liked.

Check out the full interview: Complex Magazine







It seems like Nas is loving life right now. He's single and ready to mingle (and making out with Nicki Minaj). He's on the cover of Complex's brand new summer issue. And he's putting the finishing touches on his appropriately-titled tenth solo album Life Is Good.

While shooting our cover story, the Complex video team sat down with God's Son to see where his head is at. Watch the video above to hear Nas speak about his connection to New York City, his feelings on "grown men crybabies," and why his life is so damn good right now.

Vote Posh The Socialite's sister in the Rose by Vanessa Jean competition







For those who don't recall, Simmons is the star of the MTV reality show Run's House that followed her and her family for several seasons. She was also the star of a spin off show, Daddy's Girls,  about her and sister Angela's exploits launching their Pastry shoe line in Los Angeles, California.

Now Vanessa is launching her Rose by Vanessa Jean lingerie line and will be corralling 15 girls this summer to live in one house in Los Angeles for  5 days while they undergo a series of challenges before determining which 3 will be Rose models and will walk alongside Vanessa during her official launch! 

Well my baby sister, who graduates from college with honors in Theater Arts with a minor in Film this month and is an aspiring model and actress, is one of them! And I am her official sponsor! And by sponsor I mean, I'm footing the bill for her bathing suit, clothes and hair for the competition. ha! The competition will be live streamed on the web so she has to look fierce.

Hawa came a long way to getting her slot. First, born with sickle cell disease, she overcame adversity including multiple stints in the hospital and underwent numerous blood transfusions and blood transfers after her first semester in college only to return and get a 4.0.  Even to get a semi-finalist slot, she didn't let the fact that she was not one of the original 12 girls picked stop her. She harassed poor Vannessa on Twitter until she was selected among three girls chosen for Wild Card slots. Homegirl is a fighter! 

So you are not voting blindly, here are a few of my favorite pics of hers below so you see she's not bad a pick either. ha! 

VOTE HERE: and VOTE DAILY if you can and remember. THANKS GUYS! Love ya much! Muah!
