Lupita Nyong’o is a perfect example of making the most of what could be your biggest moment. She’s nabbed yet another spread in a fashion mag –this time with . And as always, she’s killing it! The use of bright, bold colored lipstick, in this photo spread has us begging to arrive already!
During the interview portion, the Oscar-nominated actress revealed some of her that keep her looking every time we see her, as well as why she decided to cut all of her hair off. She even reveals that she once started a at her school and demanded that girls be allowed to . What a move!
Peep the highlights:
On makeup:In an interview with our blogging Afrobella (Hey Girl!!!), Lupita’s stylist also added his thoughts on Lupita’s short natural hair:
I went to an all-boys high school, and they accepted girls in only the two A.P. classes. They had these archaic rules: For example, girls couldn’t wear makeup. I found it so outrageous that an all-boys school could tell girls to not wear makeup! So I went on a campaign. I got a petition signed and everything. If a girl wants to wear makeup to boost confidence, why not? [But] I’ve worked hard to feel beautiful in my natural skin. Personally, I don’t ever want to depend on makeup to feel beautiful.
On her go-to red carpet look:
I love color. I’m enjoying trying all different shades. Makeup isn’t something I’ve worn a lot of in my life. So it’s good to work with someone like [makeup artist] Nick Barose, who is inspired by my complexion and knows how to work with it.
On how she keeps her skin so gorgeous:
I love using natural oils. I use avocado oil and Hawaiian kukui oil on my face. I like to keep things natural, simple, and straightforward.
On her signature short natural hair:
The first time I cut all my hair off was when I was 19. I just got fed up going to the salon every week. I’d had enough! On a whim, it was off. It’s low-maintenance.
I love the fact that what Lupita is doing is she’s not trying to be something other than what she is. Natural hair is a phenomenon – absolutely and it works for some women, for some women it doesn’t. A few years ago Lupita decided she didn’t want to relax her hair or color her hair anymore, especially relaxing it. So she cut it all off short and the rest is history. I cut it, I trim it up, I fade it out. It’s great to see a difference. She owns that. It’s not put on. She owns that. It’s who she is and it’s just great.

Shakira has finally revealed the creative music video for her Rihanna-assisted track, “Can’t Remember to Forget You,” and the sexy visual hails one simple message: not everyone is created equal.

The glamorous video also includes shots of the pop superstars — donning several scanty outfits — smoking cuban cigars, writhing in bed, and twerking and grinding in a hallway. The Colombian songstress caps off the eye-candy clip by rocking out on the drums and an electric guitar.
“Can’t Remember to Forget You" is the first cut off Shakira’s self-titled album due out on March 25.
What are your thoughts on the sexy music video?

Tragedy for Scott Disick as his father Jeffrey dies... less than three months after mother Bonnie passed away
Scott Disick's father has died, less than three months after the reality TV star’s mother passed away.
The 30-year-old star's dad Jeffrey, a real estate developer, died last week according to RadarOnline. The cause of death has not been revealed.
Scott is the only child of Jeffrey and his wife Bonnie, who tragically passed away on October 28 following a long illness.
He currently resides in Calabasas with Kourtney and their children, son Mason, three, and daughter Penelope, one.
Bonnie and Jeffrey appeared in a 2011 episode of Kourtney & Kim Take New York. The scene took place when Scott, Kourtney and her sister Khloe drove to the Hamptons to let Mason see his grandparents.
It was previously claimed that the couple were uncomfortable with the Kardashians’ fame and preferred not to appear on their numerous reality TV shows.
A source told Star magazine: 'They’re [Jeffrey and Bonnie] completely removed from the Beverly Hills scene and look like fish out of water when they’re with Kris and her glamorous girls.'
Our thoughts are with Scott, Kourt and the kids!

“@Javiroo: 14-01-2014 :: @shakira - Can't Remember To Forget (feat. @rihanna )” ACTUALLY I just found out you'll have it by the 13th! #1week
— Rihanna (@rihanna) January 6, 2014
Last month, Pitbull accidentally revealed that the two superstars were working on a song together when he told Kidd Kraddick in the Morning that Rihanna was originally supposed to sing on “Timber.”
“That was an ironic situation there [with Ke$ha]. The person we were looking at first to work on that record was Rihanna. There was something she had to do with Shakira, so she wasn’t able to be on the record. [But] Ke$ha is crazy, sexy, cool, wild and fun.”
Are you as excited as we are to hear “Can’t Forget to Remember”?

The video opens with picturesque shots of the ocean, similar to those featured so prominently
“We live in cities you’ll never see on screen / Not very pretty, but we sure know how to run things / Living in ruins of the palace within my dreams / And you know, we’re on each other’s team.”
This is the “palace” within Lorde’s dreams and it is, by the looks of it, a pretty magical place. Lorde posted the following message about the video to her Facebook page:

Demi Lovato is wrapping up her very successful year on the cover of Nylon magazine’s December/January issue, and the “Neon Lights” singer looks electrifying as she dresses in indie-rock threads, which she complements with a faux fur coat that matches her blue-ombre hair.
In the mag, the 21-year-old opens up about multi-tasking, her troubled past, and rebranding herself after leaving her show, Sonny With a Chance.
“When I was on the Disney Channel, I wanted to get my nose pierced in the middle, so that I could flip it up during filming, and flip it down at night to let the wild child side come out. Turns out, I didn’t need the nose ring,” Demi revealed. (Click here to see the entire preview of Demi’s spread.)
The issue hits newsstands on Tuesday, but Lovatics can check out the photos from the Marvin Scott Jarrett-photographed shoot below:

Forget the classic holiday songs!
On Late Night With Jimmy Fallon on Thanksgiving night, the comedian — along with Rashida Jones and Carrie Underwood – taught us all a whole new collection … set to popular songs.
Rashida and Jimmy kicked things off with their new rendition of Daft Punk‘s “Get Lucky” when they sang they were “up all night to get turkey.” After eating the Thanksgiving feast, “Now I’m on the sofa / And you’re gonna hear me snore / Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh,” which of course was a parody of Katy Perry‘s “Roar.”
Carrie then joined them with her spoof on Miley Cyrus‘ “Wrecking Ball.” Using the same animated cat that Miley performed with at the American Music Awards, the American Idol alum belted out: ”You made me cook a butterball / And then a green bean casserole / All you did was sit and watch football / And ignored all of your fa-a-mily / Ignored your fa-a-mily.”
Which was your favorite spoof?
