A$AP Rocky Lands Forbes 30 Under 30 Cover
WOW! Rapper A$AP Rocky nabbed a spot on Forbes magazine’s 30 Under 30 issue for his love of fashion and being a trendsetter in the fashion industry. The publication dubbed the Harlem native as a fashion mogul, securing a spot for him on the 30 Under 30 Fashion list.
While we knew he was a fashion lover, modeling for DKNY and flexing his dance moves with ex-fiancée Chanel Iman in VOGUE magazine, we didn’t quite see him as a fashion mogul, per se. But, Forbes gave the young rapper the label, so that’s saying something.
In the cover story, the young rap star chops it up about where his love for fashion came about, his plans for AWGE–the creative collective that’s been his main focus of late–and comparisons between it and Kanye West’s DONDA.
You can read his full interview here:
Forbes chose 30 tastemakers under the age of 30 in 20 different sectors, resulting in a massive list of 600 of the brightest young entrepreneurs, breakout talents and change agents. Here's a list of just a few others who landed in the 2016 class: Steph Curry, Star Wars star John Boyega, Cam Newton, Mo’ne Davis, Russell Westbrook, Russell Wilson, Bryshere “Yazz” Gray, O’Shea Jackson Jr, Jason Derulo, Fetty Wap, The Weeknd, and Schoolboy Q just to name a few.
The 30 Under 30 issue hits newsstands January 18th.

Singer-songwriter/actor/musician B. Slade drops off a funky video for an equally-funky ditty today called “Alright2016,” a revamp of Janet Jackson’s 1989 hit.
This 2016 re-imagination of the musical legend's song is absolutely breathtaking and gives it a fresh spin. The clip features a light-hearted Slade wearing the popular animal winter hat with the long flaps. While drinking a Corona and chilling on the couch as he plays the keyboard with one hand, Slade decides to get up and bust many moves: from the chill bop, to the old school, Slade breaking it down may be one of the best things you see all day.
Slade is prepping his upcoming album Ferrari, out on January 11, 2016. Me Likey what say you fellow Janatics?
Beyoncé Is Not Developing Hottentot Venus Film
Recently, reports stated that Beyoncé was developing a film about Saartjie Baartman aka the Hottentot Venus. However, it seems that this news is false, at least according to Bey’s camp.
“Beyonce is in no way tied to this project,” her representative told Billboard in a press statement. “This is an important story that should be told, however.”
And there you have it. The The Sun, which originally reported the story citing Hollywood “sources,” has some explaining to do.

Aug. 8, I’m tying the knot. Last year, Hart revealed (in an interview with E! News) that is big day won’t be extravagant.
Small, small and small definitely. It’s definitely about us not making a big masquerade. It’s not my style or cup of tea. It will be something special, just a day to be remembered just for us!

President Obama Gets Emotional During Gun Control Speech
President Obama addressed the nation today to talk about stiffer gun control measures, an issue that made him emotional. The POTUS shed a few tears as he spoke about the countless victims of mass gun violence, including the children killed when a gunman opened fire at Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012.
Obama spoke about a plan to expand background checks, amid a room of parent’s and family members of gun violence victims.“Every time I think about those kids it makes me mad,” he said wiping a tear.“And by the way it happens on the streets of Chicago everyday.”
Despite the tears, Obama still faces a major hurdle among Republicans who have criticized the call to action as an infringement on citizens’ rights. “The gun lobby may be holding Congress hostage right now, but they can’t hold America hostage,” he said. “Congress still needs to act. The folks in this room will not rest until they do.”
According to Bloomberg, stiffer background checks wouldn’t have helped stop the San Bernardino, Calif. shooting last month or Sandy Hook, since the firearms in each massacre were obtained legally.
