#TIDALforALL: Here’s Everything You Need to Know About Jay Z’s New Streaming Service.

Featured image
History has been made, beauties. Jay Z has broken ground in the music industry by relaunching Tidal, the world’s first artist-owned global music streaming platform. This new hi-definition streaming service that’s now being pitted against big-shot platforms like Spotify and iTunes. Mr. Carter’s got everyone buzzing with his press-conference that was live-streamed earlier today and with a star-studded Instagram video promoting his latest venture. The video featured appearances from A-listers like Beyoncé, Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, Madonna, Daft Punk, Kanye West and Chris Martin. Tidal claims its mission is to put power back into music artists’ hands. The question is: will consumers shell out the standard $9.99 for the music service when they can get the same songs elsewhere for free?

How To Perfectly Mix Black & White Stripes Like Janelle Monae.

Janelle MonaeJanelle Monae wearing black and white is nothing new but when she mixes prints and wears a skirt, you must take notice. The songstress hit the red carpet at the Black Girls Rock Awards taping on Saturday wearing a black and white stripe skirt and a black crop top with white lines along the collar and sleeves. She finished her look with cage sandals, a studded clutch, red lipstick and a curly updo.
I love seeing Janelle switch up her look while staying true to her black and white color palette. Her outfit is simple yet bold and refreshing. It’s an easy look to recreate for every event on your calendar this Spring. Get inspired with these three options I found online:

9 Fool-Proof Tips For Applying False Eyelashes.

woman applying mascara
I’ve realized that no matter how hard I try, false lashes and I are not friends. I spend hours in front of my mirror trying to apply them only to end up looking like the original Spider Woman. And then what’s even worst is that they end up falling off midday. Not only do they fall off, but this usually happens at the most inconvenient time. Like when I’m in a very important client meeting and just as I give a soft blink as a sign of my approval, poof they’re gone.
Well I am determined not to be made a fool of anymore. A source caught up with Erin Taylor, president and head of training at Borboleta Beauty for some much needed advice on what we’re doing wrong (notice how I said we!). Here are nine of Erin’s tried-and-true application (and removal) tips.

Destiny’s Child Reunite At The 2015 Stellar Gospel Music Awards.

Try not to lose your breath with this bit of exciting news!
After going roughly two years without performing together on the same stage, the members of Destiny's Child came together Saturday night for the Stellar Gospel Music Awards.
That's right, Michelle Williams, Kelly Rowland and Beyoncé reunited in Las Vegas to sing "Say Yes" together as a group. And if that wasn't exciting enough, the girl group matched in white attire. It's just like the good ole days, guys!
Die-hard fans speculated that a reunion may be coming sooner rather than later when Williams posted a cryptic tweet Friday evening.
"I thank all of you guys who voted! Man this is incredible!!!!" she wrote before including some interesting hashtags. "#StellarAwards30 #VideoOfTheYear #SayYes #Beyonce #KellyRowland" Perhaps the signs were there all along!
Regardless, the exciting reunion comes more than two years after the ladies rocked the house at the Super Bowl halftime show. Who can forget when they sang "Bootylicious," "Independent Women Part 1" and "Single Ladies" in a matter of minutes?!
While viewers were left captivated, Williams later told E! News that it just felt good to perform again with her BFFs. "When three good girlfriends are together, you're free and you don't care who's around," she told E! News. "You're just trying to catch up and be goofy. I had a blast."
Thanks ladies for this weekend treat! And make sure to watch the Stellar Gospel Music Awards April 5 on TV One.

Malik Yoba To Return For ‘Empire’ Season 2?

Malik Yoba
Malik Yoba seemed a little hurt that his character was killed off on the season finale of “Empire,” but there’s word he may be returning to the show.
He was definitely in his emotions when he spoke to TMZ about how his on-screen ended last week. As it turns out he’s been stewing about this for a while because the show had just taken off when he found out that Vernon wasn’t going to make it.
Malik got the call about Vernon’s death fairly early on in the show’s run. As matter of fact, the cast was still basking in the glow of a successful first episode!  “This was five days after the premiere. This was two days before it got picked up [for season 2],” he told “The Brilliant Idiots” during a recent interview. “We were one week in—not even a full week!”
