Amandla Stenberg Is Beautiful in Her Own Way on the Latest Cover of 'Dazed'
Last month, Amandla Stenberg surprised many of her fans when she took to Instagram to reveal her new buzz cut — it was an effort for her role in the upcoming movie, Where Hands Touch. In a recent interview with Dazed, the actress and activist speaks candidly about her dramatic hair transformation.
As the magazine’s newest cover star, Stenberg explains that chopping off all her hair was an “emotional” experience. She continued,
… I understood how my hair had been a symbol of self-love and self-acceptance for some people, and I understood how having that representation was important to some young girls. Now I feel like self-acceptance has nothing to do with my hair. I feel like my belief in myself – my acceptance of myself, my ethnicity, my blackness, my everything – is there whether or not I have hair.
The 18-year-old also discussed activism, social media and self-care in the interview. Read the entire conversation here, then scroll through the gallery above to check out her stunning cover shoot.
#RHoA: LIPSTICK LESBIANS? Kandi Burruss Claims She Hooked Up With Porsha Williams
Before you accuse someone of being a lesbian, maybe make sure you didn't hook up with her first. That was the life lesson on the Sunday, February 19, episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. "I'm pretty angry right now," Kandi Burruss said to the camera. She was referring, of course, to being asked over dinner if she swam in the lady pond. "All those fake, phony, hypocritical liars," Kandi continued. I refuse to ride back on a bus with any of those girls from last night." The rest of the women headed back from their glamping trip on the bus together while Kandi took a separate car — but the case was far from closed.
"I am waiting for Phaedra to admit that she had some part of this whole lesbian thing," Sheree Whitfield said to the camera. As they rode back, Porsha Williams admitted she probably did say something about Kandi being in the closet, but that she couldn't remember specifics. Cynthia Bailey wasn't buying it. Upon returning home, Cynthia reported to her teenage daughter and her assistant that, according to the girls' definition, she might be a lesbian too. Her teenage daughter was about as excited to hear that as you'd expect.
Kandi and Porsha Hooked Up: Wait. What? After getting home, Kandi recounted the whole conversation about her sexuality. "We all know that Porsha gets down with girls," Kandi said to the camera. "I know it. She's knows it. She knows I know it. We're in the same boat together!" She then went on to reveal that she'd had her "own experience" with Porsha — and that her husband, Todd Tucker, had been there too.
"She was in front of me. He was behind me, and she kissed me," Kandi told some of her staff. "There was tongue, and then she told me she wanted to eat my p---y 'til I came." How romantic. Kandi argued that a "regular chick" who hadn't tried that before wouldn't be so brazen as to say that. To the camera, she said that she and Porsha had shared this "secret" for two full years. She then accused Porsha of being in the closet.
Do you think something happened between Porsha and Kandi?
Casting call for Taraji P. Henson film takes place in Allston

Stream Charlie Wilson’s New Album ‘In It To Win It’
R&B icon Charlie Wilson has delivered his 8th solo studio album, In It To Win It, via RCA Records.
Led by the praise based single “I’m Blessed” featuring T.I., the 13-track project contains additional guest appearances from more of Uncle Charlie’s famous friends including Snoop Dogg, Pitbull, Wiz Khalifa, Robin Thicke, and Lalah Hathaway.
The crooner continues to bring feel-good music teaming up with Mr. Worldwide on the dance floor party jam “Good Time.” However, it wouldn’t be a proper Uncle Charlie album without the timeless love songs, which he delivers numerous times, including “Precious Love,” and his duet with Lalah Hathaway on “Made For Love.”
In support of the album, Charlie Wilson is currently traveling the U.S. on his “In It To Win It Tour” along with supporting acts Fantasia and Johnny Gill.

New Hip Hop Video: Meek Mill – ‘Check’
Nearly two years after filming the music video for “Check,” Meek Mill releases the money-filled clip for his Metro Boomin and Southside-produced slapper.
Starting with Meek and his cronies hiding boxes of cash inside and under a house, the Spike Jordan-directed clip continues showing money being passed around in duffel bags. Between scenes of him hiding the dough and making it rain, Meek joins friends at a block party.
Back in June, the video made headlines due to a fight that broke out on the set, where a man was pistol whipped. The alleged victim was said to be a member of Louie V Gutta’s entourage, according to TMZ. Louie later denied any involvement.
As for Meek, the newly-single MC is planning to follow DC4 with DC 4.5. Back in January, he previewed songs from the sequel.
Over the weekend, Meek was also in the headlines when Drake spoke about their feud on OVOSOUND Radio. “You can interview Meek and ask him if it was worth it,” Drizzy said. “I bet he’ll say ‘no.’ … That was a terrible, impulsive decision because you weren’t ready.”
Watch Meek turn up for a “Check” HERE (via HHNM).
