The always controversial and equally appreciated, Quentin Tarantino caused quite a stir at the  Globes with his use of the N-word back stage to justify his choice to not soften his storytelling approach with his award-winning film “Django Unchained.”

According to both The Hollywood Reporter and E! Online, “Tarantino engaged the conversation by using the N-word, to the silence and awkward whistling of onlookers.”

“I think it’s kind of ridiculous, because no one can actually say with a straight face that we use the word more than it was used in 1858 in Mississippi. So since they can’t say that, what they’re basically [saying] is I should lie,” Tarantino said regarding the racially-charged language spoken in his award-winning film. “I should pretty it up. I should lie, and I don’t lie when it comes to my characters and the stories I tell.”

 

Rihanna covers Complex Magazine Seven Times

Editorial, Fashion, News

Rihanna lives on the covers of magazines and we love her for it. The latest magazine to be graced with singers beauty and body is Complex magazine. They loved her look so much they put her on there seven times-in honor of her seventh album: “Unapologetic.”

When asked about how she’s handling her relationship with Chris Brown, RiRi tells the mag:

    “I held back before. I didn’t show a lot of myself. I was very guarded. I needed to be open and free and fearless. Basically say, ‘F**k it.’ What’s the worst that can happen? They’ll hate me? They’ve done that before.”

As for her current writing style, she adds:

    “I was tired of angry love songs. Love doesn’t always have to be about breakups, and ‘We’re never going to be together again.’ It could be sweet. It could be, ‘Hell yeah! We’re diamonds!’”

 

We must admit that we are loving the album. “Pour it up”  may be our favorite track and “Numb” is the perfect fashion show song. We anticipate hearing it at some of the highly anticipated fashion shows down in our neck of the woods, Miami.
