Tonight’s episode of Power is heavy. No, like, for real. For those of you who haven’t ruined the rest of the season for yourselves, get ready. The episode picks back up with Tariq’s interest in attending boarding school in Connecticut. He’s interviewing with the place and things look promising.
Nearly three years since the “On the Run Tour,” JAY-Z made a triumphant return to the stage during one of two headlining sets at this year’s V Festival in England on Saturday (Aug. 19), his only European show of 2017.
Performing at Staffordshire’s Weston Park, the Roc Nation mogul performed tracks off his critically-acclaimed 13th studio album 4:44 for the first time, including “Kill Jay Z” and “The Story of O.J.”
On the heels of the emotional “MaNyfaCedGod” video, JAY-Z opens up about Beyoncé, Kanye West, Solange, and himself in a rare but candid interview with TIDAL’s Rap Radar podcast.
During the one-hour conversation with Elliott Wilson and Brian “B. Dot” Miller, which took place at Soho House in Malibu, Hova spoke openly about his reaction to his wife’s LEMONADE, which seemed to address infidelity in their home.

It’s Friday, and I’m here to bring you this weeks’ Look of the Week; where you give us the pulse on the looks you liked the most on Instagram.

Here’s what your likes pooled in:

We’ve seen them on the feet of some of our favorite fashionistas, from Rihanna to Beyonce. Flatform sneakers are the perfect chill day-vibes shoe for fall (not to mention a great transitional item to take you from summer to autumn). The comfort and ease of a sneaker with the height of a platform, what is there not to like? This versatile staple can be paired with literally anything in your closet, from a mini skirt to a maxi dress, denim cut-offs to paperbag pants.
Pat McGrath is noted as the most influential makeup artist in the industry. Fittingly, she will launch her first “unlimited” core makeup collection under PAT McGrath LABS.
Pat McGrath has issued limited edition colors, and received lots of positive feedback. It’s only right to make her line permanent.

Dance Moms star Nia Sioux was a vision at the 2017 Industry Dance Awards, slipping on a $545 Self Portrait White Bellis Lace Fit & Flare Dress:
While we’ve been hanging on Beyoncé’s every style-centric Instagram post, the Peabody Award winner has been waiting for the perfect moment to give us a behind-the-scenes look at Lemonade. And that time has arrived, as Mrs. Knowles-Carter has just released The Collector’s Edition How to Make Lemonade Box Set:
From highly-coveted designer collabs (like Victoria Beckham's recent collection) to amazing only-at-Target brands, the retailer has always got you covered. But they've heard you want more options and to give you more, they'll have to take some away.
Soon enough their staple lines (like Mossimo and Merona) will be non-existent making room for those shiny and new additions to the company. Exciting, no?
How many times have you been watching your favorite HGTV show and been inspired to plaster your walls in a fun print? We've all been there, but it's the labor-intensive application (and subsequent removal process) that always deters us from bringing our home décor vison to life.
Ciara's oversized Maison Margiela shirt dress has it all figured out. No matter the weather, the occasion or the after-meal bloat, it's a wardrobe staple you can wear confidently (and most importantly) comfortably.
With fall just around the corner, now is the perfect time to give those makeup bags a good spring (or autumn, rather!) clean. Summer is all about light and shimmery products built to withstand the heat. Once the weather gets a bit cooler, however, deeper, more polished textures and colors come into play.
The fall beauty trends coming off the runways didn’t disappoint: makeup this season is playful, colorful, and made to have fun with.
Here, five fall beauty trends you should be excited about.
Save those polished, red carpet updos for a more formal occasion, would ya?
But just because your summer plans include hanging at the beach and working on your tan with your squad, doesn't mean you shouldn't sport a celeb-inspired hair statement while you're at it. The goal: Relaxed vacay waves you can take from day to night.
If you've jumped on the green beauty bandwagon, this is right up your alley.
With an all-natural routine, you've probably spent ample time reading through ingredients lists, trying to decipher twelve-letter science words. If you're exhausted, i don't blame you. The solution: Make your own products. And, if you're not 100 percent committed to being a beauty chef, making one or two of the products in your daily routine greatly reduces your skin's exposure to chemicals and animal-based formulas. Plus, it's cost efficient!

Blue Ivy pulled some inspiration from her mama’s alter ego before she slayed her latest dance recital.
New shots of Beyoncé‘s first-born getting ready to slay her dance recital have popped up on Instagram. In the pictures, Blue is the flyest little ballerina you’ve ever seen as she was caught doing her best Sasha Fierce pose in her sparkly pink costume.
Lucious is going to put his entire family out of the house and Cookie will do battle with Mrs. DuBois when Empire returns next month.
Season 4 of Empire is going to keep us on the edge of our seats when it debuts on September 27 at 8 p.m. on FOX. A promo for the upcoming round shows Lyons going through thick and thin (as they usually do) while battling two different enemies.
As you gear up for fall, shopping for on-trend transitional pieces is the name of the game. This fall, you can rest assured that the wild world of camo will be weaving its way through fresh fall looks. But gone are the days of the solely sporty version, this season’s military greens run the gamut of fiercely feminine pieces, such as sequined minis and crush-worthy cardigans.
The Los Angeles-based model, known on social media as the "Six-Pack Mom," is closer than ever to welcoming her second child. Sarah's shared much of pregnancy journey with her more than 2 million Instagram followers, and much like her first pregnancy, has defended her lifestyle time and time again from body shamers and trolls.
Chrissy Teigen’s Beautycon LA 2017 Day 2 $275 Jonathan Simkhai Black Released Ribbed Bell Sleeve Top and $218 Cult Gaia Natural Gaia’s Luna Bag
Chrissy Teigen made an appearance at Beautycon LA 2017 Day 2, sporting a $275 Jonathan Simkhai Black Released Ribbed Bell Sleeve Top and $218 Cult Gaia Natural Luna Bag:
Although great skin-care is the foundation of any standout beauty look, all too often, we find ourselves using concealer and foundation as a crutch. Once the day is over and the makeup comes off, we find the product that will solve the most visible problem, leaving the others to another day—sound like your routine?
If you haven’t heard of Mianik accessories, there’s no way you haven’t seen them. The accessory company, run by two beautifully breathtaking sisters, has caught fire with trendsetters like Winnie Harlow and Amanda Harvey. Known for their refreshing take on trending accessories such as sparkled fishnets, a head-spinning array of enviably charming chokers, and urban and African-inspired pieces, the young design duo seems to be landing in a Queendom of their own.
The short hair lifestyle can easily evoke envy.
The right haircut looks chic yet never appears overdone. It brings to attention facial features, making any bold makeup stand out, and it's relatively low maintenance. Rather than waking up to a head full of wild hair in need of products, tools and potentially heat, most with above-ear cuts simply take off their hair scarf, spritz a little holding spray and oil for sheen and start their good hair day—must be nice!
Have beauty products, will travel (in spirit).
Whether you're sitting in a freezing office, snoozing in class or just wasting the day away, you'll eventually end up scrolling through the endless celeb vacation photos on social media. Let's just say jelly isn't just a sandwich ingredient.
Demi Lovato may have a vocal range from here to the top of a skyscraper, but there’s more to her than the catchy hit songs that blaze radio stations. She’s resilient, outspoken, stylish, and her glam is always on point, thanks to makeup artist Jill Powell and hairstylist César Ramirez. Behold, today’s Beauty Crush:

The supermodel's face made for the perfect canvas for the makeup artist and L'Oréal spokesperson, who also works with Beyoncé, Karlie Kloss, Gabrielle Union and Ashley Graham. Recently, the American Beauty Star mentor painted blue liner on Joan's top and bottom lids, titling his work, "Denim Liner." As we're prepping our denim wardrobe for fall, this makeup trend came at the perfect time.
The $498.00 jumpsuit is by Tracy Reese and available on her website. It’s a perfect transitional piece, working well in the warm weather months, then placing a light leather jacket when the weather cools down.
Chris Brown is opening up, in detail, about the domestic violence incident with Rihanna in his new documentary Chris Brown: Welcome To My Life.
Age ain’t nothin’ but a number and the young up-and-coming millennial it girls know that rule like no other. Sure, some of them just graduated high school, but they’re precocious it girl attitude has them moving swiftly up the ladder, finding footing in the most elite glamour circles of our times.
I gathered up the most inspiring bunch of young fashionistas carving out there it girl status with the vibrant vigor of a lady that knows she can and will rule the world.
Thomas Edison said, “Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.” And though overalls are adorable, we think you can do better. This fall, refresh your office ensembles with these five fresh trends. Think glitter bomb shoes, showstopping belts, discrete blouses, charming pants, and mid-calf skirts. It’s vintage-inspired luxury with a touch of modern whimsy. So whether you have an assistant or are one, take note.
Opportunity is everywhere, ladies. Let’s dress for it.
Ashley Tisdale's mini $1,790 Gucci backpack is giving us all the nostalgia feels—with a side of oh-that's-actually-really-chic. How badly is this making you reconsider carrying the studious accessory this fall?
If you're like me, and willing to give the look a shot, there are so many amazing options available to adults these days. (And don't worry, they won't all break the bank.)
So grab your credit cards and get to shopping!
Everyone wants to look like they can hike up Mount Everest on the red carpet, even if they can barely make it to the Hollywood sign. Thanks to makeup, they can. You don't need to spend hours in the gym squatting or working your quads to get Jennifer Lopez-level thighs (for a few hours). You just need some bronzer, a beauty blender and a few minutes.
Ready to look fit? Follow the steps below!
It's fun to experiment, but when you find a product that's truly effective for your skin, buy it in bulk. For instance, Jennifer Aniston discovered a $3 drugstore gem over 20 years ago and has yet to let it go. And, if the cleanser has stayed on the shelves for that long, she can't be the only one.
More specifically we're talking about shirtdresses, a cross between an ultra-fancy meeting dress and your weekend mumu. Seriously shirtdresses are worth every penny (and no, not all of the options below are super expensive.)
While our favorite celebs are known to splurge, they all also love to save with comfortable, affordable pieces from Fashion Nova! The e-store carries jeans, sweats, cute crop tops, shorts, and more. Take a look at how some of our favorite stars slayed in Fashion Nova:

Gigi Hadidproves it's time we swapped our sandals for mules—it's August 14, after all. Fall is fast approaching, so it's time to at least start thinking about the footwear changes you'll be making.
Luckily there's a particular shoe (mules, you guessed it) that make transitioning your wardrobe from summer to fall as easy as possible. They're the backless shoes that will keep you a little warmer without having to change up your look, really, at all.
"The Burt's Bee lip line is so bomb," he told E! News before appearing on E!'s freeSTYLE alongside The Bachelor's Vanessa Grimaldi and host Zuri Hall. "I love any of their tinted chapsticks. They have some dark ones that have berry tones. They're just colored enough to give you that subtle pop without being overpowering, and they're easy to wear all day."

When was the last time you decided to push life’s envelope a little bit further and become a more positive force? Living life lavishly begins with deliberately choosing to enjoy and celebrate all that you have at your disposal. I often talk about the value of viewing your proverbial glass as half full as opposed to being half empty. This week, I want to take that notion a step further and suggest that we appreciate the lives we’ve been given just a little bit more.
