Janelle Monae, Emily Ratajkowski, Aja Naomi King, Zoey Deutch and Alexandra Daddario Strike a Pose in 'Marie Claire's 2017 Fresh Faces Issue
Five fresh faces with beautiful minds.
Marie Claire has chosen some bold beauties to honor as 2017′s freshest faces. These five women embody the virtues of collective womanhood and feminism all while leading their industries. The fourth annual cover features a range of talents, from recording artist and actress Janelle Monáe to model Emily Ratajkowski, who share wisdom on working and thriving in male-dominated spaces and provide hope that women will receive the recognition they deserve for their contributions.
Actress Zoey Deutch shares:
“As a woman raised by brave, strong women, and men who support brave, strong women, I still feel myself falling into that ‘trying to be liked’ thing, which is f—cking bullsh*t. If you’re a nice person, just be nice. If you make art to please people or to make people like you—well, it’s never going to happen.”

#RHoA: Who did RHoA’s Shamea Morton NOT INVITE to her Upcoming Wedding?
Shamea Morton has found herself embroiled in some major drama this season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. But when she's not hanging with this Hotlanta squad, Shamea's life has been pretty Georgia peachy keen, thanks to her engagement to fiancé Gerald Mwangi on August 14.
Shamea and Gerald have been together for three years, and the RHOA pal definitely feels #blessed to have him in her life. "He is amazing. He is definitely Godsend. And they say you got to kiss a couple of frogs before you get your Prince Charming, and that is definitely what he is," Shamea gushed during a recent interview with The Daily Dish. "I think about where I was five years ago even, and I think about where I am now, and all I can say is, ‘God, he is so good, and he is so merciful, and he is so understanding, and he is so patient and forgiving.' And it’s nothing but his work that brought us together."
Gerald, who owns companies that deal in mergers and acquisitions, is originally from Kenya, so he and Shamea had planned to hold the traditional ceremony where the dowry is presented to the bride's parents on April 8. The couple's official wedding ceremony will be taking place in Nyeri, Kenya on July 22, and the reception will be held at a venue at Mount Kenya, the second-highest peak in Africa behind Mount Kilimanjaro. Shamea said she not only plans on partying "all night long" with her wedding guests but also going on safari and getting a little beach fun in the sun, too. "I want it to be an experience for my guests, not just the wedding day," she said. "I want them to leave like, ‘Oh my goodness, that was fun.’"
Despite everything that's gone down with the RHOA ladies this season, Shamea has actually invited many of them to her impending nuptials — all of them except Phaedra Parks, who seemed to start those rumors about her and Kandi Burruss hooking up, that is. "My invitations went out two days ago, and I’ve already gotten calls and texts from a lot of the ladies I know of. Kenya [Moore] is going to be in South Africa. She says she’ll try to come. Kandi and Todd [Tucker] say they’re definitely coming. Cynthia [Bailey] says she’s definitely coming because she’s got some friends in Kenya already," Shamea said. "And I haven’t spoken to Porsha [Williams], but you know Porsha was supposed to be in my wedding, but I’m sure she’ll be there. I can’t see her not coming."
Though Shamea has been learning Swahili at Georgia State University and is on track to be fluent in the language soon, she said she and Gerald will be settling down in the United States after the wedding. "He and his siblings came to the States for college. So he’s been in the States right before his 18th birthday, and he’s like, 'No, I never want to leave Atlanta,'" Shamea explained. "That’s where all my family is, and he has all his friends here, and we just have a really great life in Atlanta. That’s where we want to raise our kids, and this is home for us."
#EMPIRE: Actress Taraji P. Henson returning to Atlanta to film 'The Best of Enemies'
Actress Taraji P. Henson, seen weekly on the TV series Empire, and recently in the award-winning motion picture Hidden Figures, filmed in Georgia, will be returning to Atlanta to film another movie starting next month.
According to Deadline, Henson will star in The Best of Enemies, based on Osha Gray Davidson's book by the same name which chronicles the true story of Ann Atwater and C.P. Ellis.
Atwater was a civil rights activist from Durham, North Carolina, who had a decade-long battle with Ellis, the "Exalted Cyclops" of Durham's Ku Klux Klan. Deadline says their tumultuous battle came to an "abrupt and unlikely end in 1971," when, after a court-ordered desegregation of the city's schools, the two agreed to co-chair two-week community meeting to try to reach a compromise.
The events that followed changed the city, and changed the lives of both Atwater and Ellis completely.
Filmmakers have been trying to bring the story before cameras for nearly two years. My Entertainment World says production will finally get underway in late May.

The Internet Can’t Stop Talking About Ludacris’ Fake CGI Abs
The Internet can not stop talking about Ludacris’ fake CGI abs in his new music video for “Vitamin D,” featuring Ty Dolla $ign. We should rephrase — folks can’t stop dissing the rapper for the clearly unrealistic images.
In the visual, Luda shows off his chest with obviously enhanced ab muscles. One fan suggested the washboard madness looks like the King’s Hawaiian rolls “I buy at 7/11 when i’m drunk.”
Even Luda couldn’t help but have some fun with viewers comments. In fact, he launched a vitamin D chest challenge.
But in case you thought the rapper was fooling his fans into thinking his body is this tight, guess again. He pretty much gives it away in the music video that his fake bod was just a dream and the illusion was all intentional.

Vin Diesel Wasn't Original Choice for Fast & Furious' Dom Toretto - Find Out Who Turned Down Role!
The Fate of the Furious producer Neil H. Moritz just revealed that Vin Diesel wasn’t the original choice to play the role of Dominic Toretto in The Fast and the Furious films!
Neil went on The Bill Simmons Podcast and spoke about how the studio originally tapped Justified‘s Timothy Olyphant for the role.
“I had been working with Paul Walker on another movie, Skulls, and I gave him the script [for The Fast and the Furious],” Neil said. “Rob Cohen, who I had made The Rat Pack with, we gave him the script. The two of them liked the idea. And then we had to look for Dom Toretto. The studio said, ‘If you can get Timothy Olyphant to play that role we will greenlight the movie… The luckiest thing that ever happened to us is Tim Olyphant turned us down. He’s a great actor. In fact, I’m curious to see what that movie would have been.”
Later, Neil met with Vin at a restaurant after seeing some of his work.
“I went and met him at Kate Mantilini [restaurant] and he wasn’t a star yet, but the great thing about Vin is he always believed he was a star,” Neil continued. “And I was going in there to think he’s coming to me to want the role and I’m the one there now having to convince him to do the role! Lucky for both of us that happened. And then we started to make the movie.”
Sean Spicer Apologizes for Hitler Comments: 'I've Let the President Down'
Sean Spicer is apologizing again for his shocking comments on Hitler and chemical warfare made on Tuesday (April 11).
During a briefing with the White House press corps, he said, “We didn’t even use chemical weapons in World War II. You had a — you know someone as despicable as Hitler who didn’t even sink to using chemical weapons.
Today, he apologized. “I made a mistake. There’s no other way to say it,” the Press Secretary told Greta Van Susteren. “I got into a topic that I shouldn’t have and I screwed up.”
“Your job as spokesperson is to help amplify the president’s actions and accomplishments. When you’re distracting from that accomplishment and your job is to do the exact opposite, on a professional level it’s disappointing because I think I’ve let the president down.”
