Cardi B Gives An Album Update: ‘I’m Going To Take My Time Till It’s Right’

If you’ve been hoping for the full-length follow-up to Cardi B‘s breakout single, “Bodak Yellow,” it appears that you’ll be holding out a little while longer as the album isn’t dropping anytime soon.

On November 19, Cardi got real with her Twitter followers and explained why the album — which she originally said was set for an October release — is still MIA. For her, urgency doesn’t mean a thing when perfection is what she’s after.

Though she’s recorded plenty for what will eventually serve as her full-length debut, Cardi is more concerned with making sure she’s putting out tracks that feel right — and the ones she’s currently working with aren’t making the grade.

“I have songs stashed up,” she tweeted. “I just don’t think they qualified for my album. Sometimes i think is ready sometimes i think it’s not so I’m going to take my time till it’s right.”

In the meantime, she’s been dropping major collaborations with her beloved Offset and Nicki Minaj, so feast your ears on “Motor Sport” and that LP will drop before you know it.

Beyoncé Just Redefined What A Ponytail Is Capable Of Achieving

Beyoncé is really feeling the emerald high-slit cocktail dress lately, but one bold statement-making hairdo made her ensemble for Serena Williams’s wedding a look to remember.

The nuptials of Williams and Alexis Ohanesian drew Bey, Kelly Rowland, Kim Kardashian, and many more to New Orleans, and Beyoncé opted to stick with a familiar silhouette for the wedding of her dear friend. It was her cascading curls tied up in a ponytail that made the outfit, though, and she showed off her tresses with a couple of Instagram pics (as she’s wont to do when she’s understandably feeling herself).

Please appreciate a hair-flip so epic, so effortless, that it nearly dwarfs Bey’s body entirely with its height and reach. However many shots it took to immortalize this beautiful breach of the laws of physics, it doesn’t matter, because the end results are stunning.

That perfect pony didn’t get in the way of her carousel ride at the party, thankfully.

Dive Into The Realness Of Olivia O’Brien’s It’s Not That Deep EP

Listening to Olivia O’Brien is the equivalent of getting hit in the face with cold water—whether she’s talking about heartbreak or fake friends, the 17-year-old keeps it 100 percent with her delicious dark pop music. Back in 2016, she blew us away with her breakout ballad “hate u love u” which evolved into a collaboration with Gnash called “i hate u, i love u.”

Today, the Los Angeles-based artist has released her debut EP, It’s Not That Deep. When asked about the cover art in a QA on Twitter, Olivia said that it represents “a basic b**** drowning in shallow ass water” which is “a metaphor for people who care about dumb unimportant/shallow shit and let it consume their entire life.”

In a press release, the singer-songwriter further elaborated on the inspiration behind the EP. “These songs are based on what I’ve felt, experienced, and observed from the time I’ve spent in the past year in LA,” she said. “I hope that my music can inspire people to be real and honest, which are the most important values for both my music and life.”

The EP opens with the playful “Tequilawine” that depicts the feeling of getting drunk on a crush, followed by the anti-emotional anthem “Fuck Feelings.” “Empty” is a sad song about the struggles of being an outsider, and there’s “No Love” where Olivia calls out heartless social climbers. The project ends on a somber note as Olivia sends her condolences to a deadbeat friend on “RIP.”

Even for teens like Olivia, it’s important not to get swept up in the trivial aspects of life. Some pop stars shy away from fully diving into their emotions, but Olivia digs deeper because she knows she has the range to deliver it with authenticity because she’s still dealing with so many issues herself. It’s Not That Deep is out now on Island Records.

Eminem Surprised On Saturday Night Live By Working ‘Stan’ Into His Performance

Eminem hasn’t seen the Saturday Night Live stage in four years, so it’s only fitting that he pulled out all the stops for his return to Studio 8H by not only throwing himself into his newest track, but pairing it with old favorites.

Typically, SNL‘s musical guest performs twice during the live broadcast of the show. Eminem isn’t typical, and neither was this performance. He was joined by a full string section and frequent collaborator Skylar Grey, who co-wrote “Walk on Water,” his duet with Beyoncé, and performed it with him at the 2017 MTV EMAs.

He threw a curveball by taking his closing bar from “Walk on Water” — Bitch, I wrote “Stan” — and plowing directly into the 2000 single that inspired it. “Stan,” Em’s career-defining, disturbing hit that paints a raw portrait of an obsessive fan, made its way into the dictionary earlier this year, so the addition of it to his SNL setlist is doubly fitting.

They wrapped with a spirited rendition of “Love the Way You Lie,” his collaboration with Rihanna (which Grey also co-wrote).

Nine straight minutes of Eminem? Very down with this programming adjustment, SNL. It would’ve been great to hear more of what’s in store for his forthcoming album, Revival, but hopefully he’ll drop a follow-up to “Walk on Water” ASAP.

Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Kim Kardashian, And More Mourn One Of Their Favorite Designers

There’s a pivotal scene in the 1995 cult classic Clueless in which our leading lady, Cher (played by Alicia Silverstone), is held up at gunpoint in a San Fernando Valley parking lot. She’s terrified for her life, but when her attacker demands she lay down face-first on the pavement before making off with her purse and her phone, she protests.

“Oh no, you don’t understand!” she pleads. “This is an Alaïa!” The thief is confused. “It’s like a totally important designer.” The dude doesn’t care and forces her to ruin her dress so that he can get away, but the moment is one of the most memorable from the movie — and one that said plenty about Azzedine Alaïa, who died on November 18 at the age of 82, and his impact on high fashion and popular culture at large.

Alaïa’s gowns were huge hits with celebrities across film, music, and fashion, and a number of them — including Lady Gaga, Rihanna, and Kim Kardashian — voiced their grief on social media in the hours following his passing. Here are some of their fond remembrances of Alaïa below.

Chance The Rapper And Donald Glover Collaborated On One Of His SNL Sketches

Ahhh, stars: They’re just like us, in that their favorite rappers are likely your favorite rappers, the chances of them wanting to hang out with Drake as much as you do are probably pretty good, and we can all count on Donald Glover for a little comedic relief.

Chance The Rapper is gearing up for hosting Saturday Night Live tonight (November 18), so he swung through The Tonight Show to talk with Jimmy Fallon, esteemed SNL alum, about his return to the show and other things on his mind.

Fallon brought up a tweet in which he sang Drizzy’s praises from earlier in the week, and he was more than happy to elaborate on his admiration for the 6 God.

“I love Drake! I think we live in a time where people are ashamed to say how much they love Drake or enjoy what he does,” said Chance. “I’m totally rebelling against that. I just want to say, shoutout to Drake and your whole team; shoutout to Future, everybody.”

He went on to share that he’s written a couple of sketches for his latest turn on SNL, and that proven comedic genius Donald Glover helped him bring the idea to fruition. It’s a different kind of collaboration than the one Glover’s teenaged bullies were expecting, but hopefully they’ll be stoked about it all the same.

Apparently, Chance brought five sketches to the SNL table, and the one he and Glover collaborated on will definitely air. Guess we’ll have to tune in and see how the rest of the episode goes, and who knows — maybe an ode to Drake will work its way into his opening monologue.

Kim Kardashian’s Birthday Wish For Something Shockingly Normal Just Came True

Kim Kardashian turned 37 on October 21, and though she blew out her candles a couple of weeks ago, she’s still thinking about what the ideal birthday wish would be — and it seems like she’s not only figured it out, but gets to make a dream come true

On the November 15 episode of Ellen, Kim gushed about what she really, truly wants for her birthday while acknowledging it’s a thing so simple, so definitively normal, that she’d likely annoy the non-celeb population, as said definitively normal thing can totally be found on a basic to-do list.

For her birthday, Kim Kardashian wanted to go grocery shopping.

“This might be really bratty and unrelatable, so I’m sorry, but I asked for — I said, ‘Can someone rent out Ralph’s for me, for one hour?'” Turns out it’s been years — years! — since Kim’s been able to go to the grocery store without getting mobbed, and that her idea of heaven is to hit up the popular Californian grocer, with North and Saint in tow, and take her time perusing the produce and cruising up and down the aisles.

In addition to the grocery business, Ralph’s is a chain that’s apparently in the wish-fulfillment business: They heard about Kim’s wish and told her to come through.

While it’s a bummer that Kim can’t go grocery shopping whenever she’d like, it’s super sweet that Ralph’s wanted to make her day — and succeeded.

So Justice League Isn’t Doing So Super At The Box Office

To be fair, $100 million is nothing to sneeze at, not by a long shot — but we’re not talking about any standard major-billing feature, here, and Justice League could very well be the first DC movie to fall short of clearing that number during its first weekend in theaters.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Justice League‘s opening night (and Thursday night preview) sum of $38.8 million offers little confidence that the latest installment of the DCEU will draw the same crowds that Wonder Woman, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and the rest of its affiliated films did before this.

To compare and contrast, Wonder Woman brought in $100 million for its debut weekend, which puts it high on the list of the best-selling movies of 2017 (and one of the most crowd-pleasing efforts, too).

Suicide Squad and Batman v Superman were critical flops, but still got butts in seats when they hit theaters: Suicide Squad saw a $133 million opening, with Batman v Superman earning $166 million in spite of across-the-board unenthusiastic reviews.

Justice League is no critical darling, not by a long shot, but Wonder Woman‘s popularity and major role in the ensemble blockbuster was thought to be a dependable draw going into the weekend. Diana Prince can take on armies of bad guys and save the world with her Lasso of Truth, but can she save Justice League from tanking? We won’t know until Monday morning when the final box office numbers are reported — but it’s not looking good.

Aly & AJ Finally Dropped Their Big Comeback Project

After a decade of radio silence, Aly AJ have officially returned with their Ten Years EP and my inner fangirl is squealing with joy. Now that the former Disney darlings are grown women in their twenties, they’re speaking from a mature perspective–so while there aren’t any tunes like “Potential Breakup Song” or “Chemicals React,” they’ve still got relevant phenomenons to reflect on. The five-track project has a bop for every occasion whether it’s coping with loss, a relationships on the decline, or having the courage to ask someone out on a date.

Ten Years is dripping with ’80s synth pop vibes as heard on the upbeat pick-me-ups “I Know” as well as the moody slow jam “Promises.” The lead single “Take Me” is a catchy tale about the woes of modern romance in a digitally driven world, whereas the closing track “The Distance” touches on the dilemma of growing apart from your partner.

While this hiatus may not have been the path that the Michalka sisters originally intended to follow, the journey was ultimately worthwhile in the end. Aly AJ are returning to an industry that continues to change on the regular, but they no longer have to worry about losing themselves in the process because they’ve had time to figure out who they truly are. Ten Years is available to stream now.

Nicki Minaj Loves That Lil Uzi Vert Reminds Her So Much Of Lil Wayne

Nicki Minaj and Lil Uzi Vert get along swimmingly, and that’s no surprise when you take into consideration how much he reminds her of her mentor and friend, Lil Wayne.

The collaborators taped a music video for their remix of Uzi’s track, “The Way Life Goes,” but took a break to chill for a sec on set. This led to goofing off in a trailer, and a positive vibe fest from Nicki, who handed out one of the highest compliments the Young Money rap goddess can give.

“It’s just a pleasure to work with him!” she says. (Uzi, blissed out, offers up a “Same” in return.) “He just reminds me so much of Tunechi, so every time I see him, I’m just like, ‘Aw, my little baby!’ because he just gives me the Lil Tunechi vibe. So, because of that, I love him.”

She loves their remix, too, so it’s safe to say she’ll love the video in progress as well. Stay tuned for the visual for the remix for “The Way Life Goes,” and pull a Nicki and tell someone you love them today.
