#TEAMEMPIRE: Taraji P. Henson & Her Makeup Artist Cover The Hollywood Reporter’s Beauty Issue, Talk Cookie Lyon’s Fierce ‘Empire’ Beauty Regimen
Empire star Taraji P. Henson poses alongside her makeup artist and one of “closest and dearest sister friends,” Ashunta Sheriff, on the cover of The Hollywood Reporter’s Beauty issue. Taraji, aka Cookie Lyon, is No. 1 on THR’s list of Hollywood’s 25 Best Beauty Moments of 2015.
While sharing the gorgeous cover on Instagram, Taraji expressed her appreciation for all that her friend does, and also thanked the magazine for the opportunity. “We’ve been in this thang together for quite some time now,” she says. “When she shines I shine!!!! I love you deep sis! Thank you @hollywoodreporter for this amazing opportunity to shine some light on this talented woman.”
More from the “THR”: Fan pages devoted to Cookie’s beauty, including tens of thousands of YouTube tutorials on how to re-create the diva’s makeup, have flooded the Internet this year. Why the obsession? According to Ashunta Sheriff, Henson’s makeup artist both onscreen and off, “Cookie is uninhibited, and that is giving women the courage to try new things. She isn’t afraid of the trends, whether it’s a dark plum or bright turquoise eye shadow.” It also helps that Cookie’s signature look — what Sheriff calls her “wispy lash, red or wine lipstick, winged liner and natural foundation coverage” — is easily imitated. One person not copying the Lyon-ess’ makeup, however, is Henson, 45. “I definitely try to give Taraji a different look from Cookie,” says Sheriff, who forgoes bold lip colors in favor of soft pink and coral glosses for the red carpet. Lips aside, all eyes are on both women right now.
Additionally, back in October we got a peek into the beauty’s “Cookie Booty” workout, via tips shared by her personal trainer, Mike T. If you missed it, you can check that out here.

DEVELOPING NOW: Tamar Braxton LEAVES "Dancing With The Stars"
Well I guess your health is more important than anything else! That said Tamar is leaving DWTS!
On Monday, she was rushed to the hospital during "DWTS" rehearsals, just one day after performing in Orlando while on tour with Mary J. Blige. She was originally diagnosed with pneumonia and found a way to leave in time to STILL dance during Monday night's competition.
Afterwards, she was visibly weak after leaving it all out on the dance floor. Now, she's made an incredibly hard decision. Tamar -- who has been a favorite to possibly win -- is leaving "DWTS." She actually does not have pneumonia, but does have a very serious condition that causes blood clots in both of her lungs.
The extra booked star explained in an Instagram post:
With a Heavy heart I regret to inform you that my season of #dwts has to come to an end along with the rest of my tour dates with @musicbykem. After yesterday's final #dwts performance I went back to the hospital (after the doctors didn't want me to leave in the first place) only to find out that I don't have pneumonia but something way more serious and that is having several P.E.'s (blood clots in both sides of my lungs) As you all know I will be the first to always encourage anyone to push through any obstacle that comes along one's way. But in this case, my health is my current obstacle. .. And in TRUE #tamartian form I must go about this the exact same way as I would anything else. I woke up to a mirror and saw myself this morning and that makes me the winner because that almost wasn't the case. Take care of yourselves... I love you and thank you ALL for your support= p.s. Big hugs and kisses to my boo @iamvalc for being beyond a friend, brother and the BEST partner EVER
Sad news indeed. But You come first. Get well soon Tamar!
HUH? Kent State Casts White Actor To Play Martin Luther King!
Katori Hall, the writer of the critically acclaimed The Mountaintop play, appalled (and rightfully so) at Kent State University’s decision to cast a white actor to portray Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in an adaptation of her art.
And she lashed out in an informative op-ed published on The Root.
Here is an excerpt:
Had the director and school reached out to this living playwright, they would have learned that I actually believe that race is a mental construct and that I have urged race-revolutionary casting for a few works. In fact, when I received news in London of the white King, I had just left a workshop at the National for my play Children of Killers, about the aftermath of the 1994 Tutsi genocide in Rwanda. I had urged the directors to cast for diversity within their youth groups, providing the caveat that casting must drive home the major theme: that lines of identity were arbitrarily drawn by colonial powers, rendering signifiers of “racial” identity unreliable. However, with the majority of my work, what I have committed to is visually articulating a certain skin experience.
Black writers dedicated to using black bodies, who remain at the center of a devalued narrative, are committing a revolutionary act. We are using theater to demand a witnessing. Our experiences have been shaped by a ragged history, and dark skin has proved to be a dangerous inheritance. From Eric Garner to the Charleston Nine to the latest black girl slammed to the ground by a cop, our bodies have been used as a battlefield where the Civil War has mutated and continues to claim the lives of those who should have been freed from the sharp knife of racism centuries ago.
The casting of a white King is committing yet another erasure of the black body. Sure, it might be in the world of pretend, but it is disrespectful nonetheless, especially to a community that has rare moments of witnessing itself, both creatively and literally, in the world.
It’s true that Oatman only fell halfway off the “turn-up” truck; the white actor was indeed sharing the role with another black actor. But the fact that this mystery actor has remained nameless further demonstrates the erasure of the black body in this experiment. Even on the school newspaper’s website, only the white actor’s name is listed.
Let Us be clear on the issue here. This isn’t the affirmative equivalent of Quvenzhané Wallis being cast as Little Orphan Annie; an alternate take on outlining the common hero/heroine as an adorable, unassuming and earnest Caucasian individual. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a historic figure whose likeness and race was the prime reason for his legacy.
When entertainment tries to make us forget this fact, we become “bleached” as a society.

EMPIRE FANS DID YOU KNOW: FOX Initially Tried To Disqualify John Singleton From Directing Empire
Diversity in Hollywood is an ongoing battle, a subject that is currently the hot button issue in the culture.
When it comes to the predominately Black, pro-Hip-Hop sensation that is Empire, apparently having an impressive résumé isn’t enough to whittle down the race barriers.
Variety recently profiled Ilene Chaiken of The L-Word fame and she gave insight on how John Singleton was initially given the runaround when it came time to direct his high-rated Empire episode, “Dangerous Bonds” during the first season.
“The initial response was the kind of automatic response, which is ‘We can’t, he’s never done it before. He doesn’t know how,’” she said the network told the team after Singleton had been personally recommended by Empire creator Lee Daniels.
“It’s that classic Catch-22 that plagues us in the television business,” said Chaiken. “You can’t do [TV] unless you’ve already done it.” Eventually he convinced them. “He went through a series of interviews and went about making everybody comfortable in the way he made me comfortable, and then we gave him that opportunity that doesn’t usually get given,” Chaiken recalls. “But it absolutely takes advocacy.”
In 1991, Singleton became the youngest director and first African-American to be nominated for the Academy Award for Best Director due to his cinematic Boyz n the Hood feature. His filmography largely consists of provocative movies that circulate around African-American culture and he has a previously worked with several of the Empire cast members, including its biggest star in Taraji P. Henson. But like Chaiken concluded, the TV game plays by its own set of rules.

DISTURBING! 8 -Year-Old Charged With Murdering 1-Year-Old
8-year-old charged in beating death of 1-year-old
An 8-year-old boy has been charged with murder in Birmingham, Ala., where the police said Tuesday that he had “viciously attacked” a toddler whose mother had left children alone while she visited partied.
Via NYTIMES and AL.com: The authorities announced their intention to prosecute the boy, who was not identified, nearly a month after the death of 1-year-old Kelci Lewis. The child was found unresponsive on Oct. 11, and a police spokesman said Tuesday that investigators believed the older boy had become violent because the toddler would not stop crying.
“The 8-year-old just recklessly, viciously dealt with the 1-year-old,” the spokesman, Lt. Sean Edwards, said at a news conference on Tuesday, one day after the girl’s mother surrendered to the authorities and was charged with manslaughter.
Lieutenant Edwards said that the mother, Katerra M. Lewis, and a friend had left the home where they were staying late on Oct. 10. Six children, none of them older than 8, remained at the home, and while Ms. Lewis was away, the lieutenant said, her daughter began to cry.
Soon, the police said, the boy began to beat the girl, to whom he was not related. She was found and pronounced dead the next morning, more than eight hours after investigators believe Ms. Lewis returned to the home.
The police said the girl had suffered “severe head trauma, as well as major internal organ damage.”
The Jefferson County district attorney’s office declined to comment on Tuesday, and Ms. Lewis could not be reached.
Ms. Lewis was released from jail on Monday after posting a $15,000 bond, according to a Sheriff’s Office record. She was held, the agency said, for less than 90 minutes.

Beyonce will be Sounding Different on the new Coldplay Album
Earlier this week Chris Martin of Coldplay announced that Beyonce would appear on his new album 'A Head Full of Dreams
Turns out Bey appears on more than one song and her fans will be surprised at her new sound…
Chris Martin tells London's Magic Radio
“She sings on two tracks, yeah. Three, really. But she is just wonderful, as you know, and she was so sweet, and I said, ‘Is there any chance you would come and help us do some, you know, backing vocals?’ That’s how it started, ‘cause we were trying to keep it a secret, but she just sounds so great that I think we faded it up in the mix a bit.”
“And then on one song, ’Hymn For The Weekend,’ I said, ‘Could this be a bit more of a duet?" and we just — she was just so lovely to watch sing. She’s so good, it’s insane.”
“When she’s on the microphone in the studio, you can just tell that this is a person that can choose any color from the palette and do it perfectly, musically. She sounds a bit different, and she was very kind of humble. She didn’t really want, she didn’t ask for anything or say ‘I need my own bit here.’ She was so lovely.”
Coldplay's new album 'A Head Full of Dreams' drops December 4, 2015
