  • 07/20/11--04:56: Beyonce Covers Complex
  • Filed under:

    beyonce

    Beyonce graces the cover of the August/September issue of Complex, which was designed by photographer Thierry Le Gouès and artist Ebon Heath. In discussing the release of her latest album '4,' Beyonce told Complex, "Everything sounds the same on the radio. With 4 I tried to mix R&B from the '70s and the '90s with rock 'n' roll and a lot of horns to create something new and exciting. I wanted musical changes, bridges, vibrata, live instrumentation, and classic songwriting." In the issue she also talks about husband Jay-Z, her upcoming 30th birthday and dispels rumors about bad relationships with Kelly Rowland, Lady Gaga and Rihanna.

    From the Guardian:

    Dave Duerson had so much going for him. A former professional American football player, he still carried himself with the bearing of a star. In Chicago, he was feted as a member of the legendary 1985 Bears that won the Super Bowl, thrashing the New England Patriots 46-10. In New York, too, he was fondly remembered as a member of the Giants team that took the Super Bowl championship five years later, squeaking to victory over the Buffalo Bills by just one point.

    From Madame Noire:

    It's a rarity you see black female celebrities come into the Hollywood limelight with their own locks. Some people proudly do so and own it, showing off hair that's as thick and kinky as it wants to be, and we love it! You know, the Janelle Monáe's, the Leela James' and the Esperanza Spaldings of the world. But others keep their natural locks on the low and go on to successfully change the lace front game, re-invent wigs, and have some women flocking to the beauty supply store for similar look with bubbly and stripper-esque names like, "Candi." They look just as fab.

    From Posterous:

    You may want to brush up on your Othello before watching this performance. The piece is, in essence, a dialogue with Shakespeare's original play. And, although writer Toni Morrison would not call herself a feminist, the result of this dialogue is a womanist revision of the play's characters and the norms set by the era in which they lived. Morrison's masterful tracing of sly, systemic modes of enslavement--of women, of Africans, of "others" and "villains"--is carefully brought to the fore through a series of monologues delivered by Desdemona (played by Elizabeth Marvel) in the afterlife.

    From CBS News:

    The White House said today President Obama will do whatever it takes -- including enacting a short-term debt ceiling extension -- to reach a deal to raise the ceiling and reduce the deficit. The president would only sign a short-term extension, however, in the event that Congress needed extra time to finalize a long-term deal.

    Yankees center fielder Curtis Granderson moved to the top dugout step, looked into the stands of Rangers Ballpark and challenged his teammates. "Count the number of African-American people here at the stadium who aren't working at the stadium and see if you can get to 10," Granderson said.

    From Reuters Africa:

    Workers at diamond giant De Beers in South Africa said on Wednesday they would go on strike this week and negotiations in the coal mining sector have reached deadlock, increasing the threat of power supply disruptions in Africa's largest economy. Unions and employers across South Africa are locked in mid-year wage bargaining, known as "strike season", and many labour groups are seeking increases well above the country's 4.6 percent inflation rate.

    From the Society Pages:

    Cheerleading started in the United States in the late 19th century as a male activity whose purpose was to organize crowds cheering at football games. In 1923, women joined cheerleading squads and have increasingly dominated this sport. Cheerleading traditionally features chanting, gymnastics, and tumbling. The dominant image of cheerleaders is a perky, always smiling, female who fits a particular body mold.

  • 07/21/11--06:55: James Murdoch: Hip-Hop Head

  • From the Atlantic:

    Fox News has, over the years, taken it's shots at hip-hop--most recently in the person of Common. But in fact, the virus of hip-hop has long infected the network from the top down. Given the current conflict embroiling Fox News' parent company, this seems like a really good time to remember that James Murdoch, heir apparent to the Empire, is responsible for some of the best hip-hop music of our time.

    From Racialicious:

    Is it more realistic to paint a world where interracial relationships don't matter at all, or one where race is just one of many issues? In most projects that make it to both the large and small screen race is either the largest issue for the couple being portrayed, or it isn't mentioned at all. Two new shows spent the summer season exploring the tangled world of race and relationships.

    From Stylist:

    Africa, as a continent, has always been known for its bright, vivid colors -- seen in everything from vibrant woven textiles to lively painted buildings to the traditional way of dress. "Africolor," a new exhibition which opened at Danziger Projects in New York last week, focuses on these subjects, as well as its connections with color photography. The show features many works from Italian photographer Daniele Tamagni, as well as other European and African artists.
