Cameron Diaz, 41, just keeps adding bullet points to her résumé. After playing photographer and writer for her The Body Book, she also took on the role of artistic director for accessories line Pour La Victoire, helping to oversee the artistic direction of the line. And now the first round of shoes created under her supervision is being released.

The fall 2014 collection features lots of neutrals, luxe suede and leather and moderate heels. And while she’s very clear that she won’t be putting her name on the designs or appearing in the ads, she wants her stamp to be all over the brand.

Tonight, Bruno Mars will step on stage with the Hot Chili Peppers as the halftime performer at Super Bowl XLVIII, a huge show that no musician turns down despite not getting paid. That’s right, the 28-year-old singer — just like his predecessors Beyoncé, Madonna, Prince and Janet Jackson — will not be compensated for his 12-minute performance.

Here’s why:

According to reports, the musician’s payment comes in the form of exposure. “He’ll be playing what amounts to a 12-minute commercial for himself, which should boost sales for concert tickets, albums and merchandise,” Forbes  reports. “For context, a 30-second ad costs about $4 million this year.”

NFL spokesperson Brian McCarthy said the league does not pay, however they do “cover all expenses associated with the performance,” which could easily add up to millions…

Super Bowl Review: Bruno Mars’ Flashy Halftime Blends Old School Showmanship

Originally posted on Variety:

Unless you were born with the first name “Prince,” there’s really only so much a performer can do with the Super Bowl halftime show slot, and Bruno Mars did plenty with his. Though it lacked the Olympian heft of Beyonce’s stand last year, or the sheer spectacle and requisite FCC-trolling of Madonna’s pageantry the year previous, Mars relied on a lot of flash, a hefty dose of Famous Flames-style stagecraft, and a requisite hat tip to the military for a winningly unprepossessing performance.

Running through four proper songs in 14 minutes while still leaving time for the Red Hot Chili Peppers to stage a pleasantly brief “Give It Away” cameo, a sparkly-suited Mars kicked off proceedings with a splashy drum solo good enough to attract some wildly overblown Ginger Baker comparisons from Fox commentators.

Though best known for the sort of four-quadrant pop radio hits that often give the short-shrift…

NOT MUCH HAS CHANGED! MTV Returns To Redman’s Infamous Crib 13 Years Later (VIDEO)

Originally posted on Global Grind:

There have been over 100 episodes of the iconic MTV Cribs show.

The greatest MTV Cribs episode features Redman: in 2001, the rapper showed off his two-bedroom house in Staten Island; the house was a mess, one that didn’t have a screen door.

Well, for its Retromania week, MTV decided to revisit Redman’s house again to see how it’s holding up.

And, man: it’s classic. The house is still a little rundown, but he has made improvements: he has a bigger TV now, he redid the kitchen and bathroom (although he has the same shower curtains) and the infamous “dollar box” is gone (replaced with a dollar sock).

Please, please, take two minutes out of your day to watch what Redman’s crib looks like now. You won’t regret it.

Confirmed: T.I. & Tiny Separate

bagladyboutique:

I hope this is a publicity stunt. I think they make a good couple. Sounds like the Will and Jada rumor mill.

Originally posted on Hot 107.5:

T.I. and Tiny Get Married! (thumbnail)

I almost didn’t believe it when I saw it, But after checking 3 different sources I’ve come to the conclusion that it is indeed true that America’s Favorite modern day hip-hop Brady Bunch is splitting up. Yup, Clifford T.I. Harris and Tameka Tiny Cottle are calling it quits on their relationship. It’s been reported that the couple made the decision to take a break from their marriage just before arriving in LA for the Grammy’s last week.

T.I. and Tiny (it’s going to be so hard to stop calling their names together like this) committed to filming their Family Hustle reality show that airs on VH1 for two years, so I am wondering where will this separation leave the reality show? Whatever happens I hope the both of them and the kids are okay.

Did Beyonce Just Fire Her Roc Nation Manager?! Details Inside…

According to http://http://bossip.com/908670/deuces-mrs-carter-ditches-another-manager-to-give-herself-and-hubby-hov-full-control-of-her-career/

Word on the curb is that she’s let go of yet another business manager so that she and hubby Hov can have complete control of her career.  According to Mail Online reports: Beyonce has reportedly parted ways from her manager so that she can run her own affairs with the help of husband Jay-Z. The 32-year-old singer is believed to have ditched her general manager, Live Nation Executive Faisal Durrani, the Daily Mirror reports.  Durrani, 32, is one of several managers that Beyonce has dismissed over the years so that she can run her career with Jay-Z, 44. In 2011, the Texan singer sacked her father, Matthew Knowles, who managed the star for 21 years since she was in Destiny’s Child in 1990.  She became the president of Parkwood Entertainment, the entertainment and management company that she set up in 2008. But now Beyonce has also…

DMX Wants To Beat The Brakes Off George Zimmerman

Wow! We told you guys yesterdaythat George Zimmerman thinking it was a better idea to fight the rapper DMX than it was to fight rapper The Game was a big mistake! BIG MISTAKE…huge!

Welp, now DMX is confirming our thoughts by telling TMZ that he’ll be jailed if promoters allow him to step in a boxing ring with George Zimmerman … because he’d break every boxing rule in the book and then piss on his face!

Doh!

D-M-X confirmed to TMZ that he’s officially throwing his name in the ring to be an opponent for this celebrity boxing match that Zimmerman has elected to take part in.  And as in the case of rapper The Game (who made his desire to fight Zimmerman known yesterday) he has an ulterior motive for wanting to do it.

DMX says he wants to do it for,

K Michelle says she’s done with the Love and Hip Hop franchise, and will star in her own reality show. And…she’s adding another child to her family…?
On what’s next:

I’m going on tour with Robin Thicke. We leave out on February 21st and I’m very excited. You know I didn’t think he knew me. So for someone that I really adore musically to pick me to open for him, I’m very excited about that.

On if she’ll twerk on Robin Thicke:

I have enough people coming for my neck, so I don’t need Paula coming for me too. So there will be no twerking with Robin on tour, you have my word.

You know I have my own show and we start filming February 10, ‘No New Friends’. And this is my last season of Love and Hip Hop so I won’t be on LHH…
