18 Times Celebrities Made The Ponytail Cool For Summer

Blame Gretchen Wieners' circa-2004 mandate, but for a long time, we treated wearing a ponytail like sporting our favorite pair of ratty sweatpants in public: lazy, low-effort, and only to be done once a week max. But, much like the Plastics' other style guidelines of only wearing jeans on Fridays and never rocking a tank top two days in a row, Gretchen's unflattering opinion of the humble ponytail was sorely misguided — and Hollywood's biggest stars are here to prove it.From Gabrielle Union and...

Daddy’s Hangout Presents Mixtape Friday Volume 18

Another week have gone by and man it’s hot as hell now. Once again, it’s Friday so that means it’s time for another Mixtape Friday. We kicked the week off with a pair of R&B acts. DJ Keyz put out a compilation mixtape featuring Usher. The DJ Keyz/Usher joint was the best collaborations from Usher. Afterwards, the debut album from Alicia Keys was up next.

Usher Confessions Dropped 15 Years Ago Today

Usher released his fourth album 15 years ago today. Confessions is by far his best project and one of my favorite albums ever. Confessions came out with a lot of controversy as the album was about personal relationships. The controversy had people buying the album in droves as it sold over a million records in the first week. When people bought the album, damn near everyone was happy with Confessions. Like I’ve mentioned before, this is one of the best albums ever. Confessions went on to sell ...

How To Nail "No-Makeup" Makeup — According To Alicia Keys' Artist

There are makeup artists known for unapologetically bright lips, over-the-top contouring, and bold geometric liners. And then there's Dotti, who is better known for creating makeup looks in which the makeup itself is impossible to detect. An industry vet, Dotti has worked with Emma Watson, Cate Blanchett, and Alicia Keys — not that you'd ever know it.So how exactly does the queen of no-makeup makeup accomplish that natural afterglow effect? First, by extending her job title beyond just "makeup"...

The Grammys Celebrated Women. So, What's Next?

In the year after #MeToo, women in music have thrived, despite having to function in an industry that still downplays their achievements and marginalizes them. This year’s Grammy awards set the tone for a women-lead year, if you want it. Women dominatied with wins in the pop, R&B, country, and roots categories, while Cardi B made history as the solo first woman to take home the Best Rap Album Grammy. Kacey Musgraves was given the Album of the Year trophy and Dua Lipa nabbed Best New Artist, whi...

Alicia Keys Wore A $15 Drugstore Foundation To The Grammys

More often than not, no-makeup makeup is a misnomer. We've learned it actually takes an enormous amount of prep to give skin a glow that looks natural — like the way Alicia Keys' dewy cheekbones seemed to pulsate light from the Grammys stage last night. We felt vindicated by the realization that the famously "anti-makeup" star was, in fact, wearing makeup, but the real shocker wasn't that she was wearing foundation: It was that the full-coverage formula she chose is not rich-person fancy (like ...

Why the 61st Annual Grammy Awards Telecast Was the Queerest, Fiercest, and the Best Yet

None Even if you didn't watch it, you knew that this year's Grammys were like any other's year's Grammy Award telecast: it was simply far, far too long.Yet that wasn't the only negative to be noted on the ceremony's 61st iteration. This time around, there were far too few awards were given out during the televised portion, several acceptance speech winners were played off (and twice abruptly cut off), one of the night's big winners wasn't even there (Childish Gambino/Donald Glover), and Recordi...

Alicia Keys' No-Makeup Routine Actually Costs $455

We’ll admit it: The immense ripple effect of Alicia Keys’ choice to skip makeup surprised even us. The move launched countless thought pieces on what makeup means to women, boosted a popular hashtag, and inspired a slew of other celebs to go without. (Even contour queen Kim Kardashian tried her hand at the look.) And, in the three years since, Keys has largely stuck to her commitment — even showing up to the 2019 Grammys without a stitch of makeup.But going sans makeup for Keys doesn’t mean enj...
