Kris Jenner Is Reportedly Launching a Beauty and Skin Care Brand

It looks like Kris Jenner is ready to step out from behind the curtain.

On February 10, Kris reportedly filed to trademark “Kris Jenner Beauty,” “Kris Jenner Skin,” and “Kris Jenner Skincare,” according to documents obtained by E! News

Per the documents, the reality star listed a variety of products that could be produced under her brand, including “skin care, cosmetics, nail care products, false lashes, hair care products, and fragrances.”

While Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner both partner with Coty Inc., it’s unclear if their mother will be going in that direction. However, it feels likely considering she reportedly inked the $800 million deals between Coty and her daughter’s companies, KKW and Kylie Cosmetics. In fact, the global beauty company named Kris the chief executive officer of Kylie Cosmetics in April 2020. 

Much of Kris’s own social media posts are devoted to promoting her daughters’ products, from lip oils to Valentine’s Day collections. That’s not just about being a supportive mom; it’s business. 

Kris has launched products with her namesake before. Aside from collabing multiple times with Kylie Cosmetics, including a Mother’s Day collection called the “Momager Kit,” she also launched the KKW x Kris perfume with Kim. She’s no novice. 

And there’s absolutely a market for a Kris Jenner beauty and skin care line. Kylie and Kim each run successful beauty companies aimed at different demographics, and Kris’s line would target yet another varied group: people in their 60s. (There’s a huge difference between that skin care market and, say, the market for 20, 30, or 40-somethings.) 

I’m so looking forward to whatever serums, moisturizers, and eye creams a Kris Jenner line would hypothetically offer. I feel like I’ve been waiting forever for Kris to share her secrets. Kylie and Kim had to get it from somewhere, right? Drop the routine, mom!


America Has Been in an Abusive Relationship. Here’s How We Get Out

Before Trump, we might have wanted to believe that our democratic institutions could survive a threat like him, that our Constitution and elected officials would provide checks and balances. Instead, his administration unleashed misogyny and racism across the country, even in pockets of it that we might have considered “safe.” We learned that everything can fall apart; I learned that too.

On the night of the election in 2016, I paid to have my hair done because Eric always wanted me to wear my hair up or blown straight. Otherwise, he often said my hair looked too wild. Perhaps he meant it looked too ethnic. My hair is wavy, bordering on frizzy when it’s humid. The bigger it gets, the more I like it. I thought, “What is wrong with my natural hair?” But Eric made me feel insecure about it. If I didn’t conform, I wouldn’t be pretty in his eyes. After attending a few election parties, including one hosted by Harvey Weinstein, Eric and I went to the Javits Center, where it felt as though everyone was on a sinking ship.

The past four years have sunk many of us. And not all of us have emerged unscathed. Now, as a survivor of an abusive relationship, I can offer advice that I hope helps our country. A victim-centered approach allows us to turn away from the former president. It allows us to focus on our needs, our healing, our future. I tell other survivors of abuse the following, which can apply to the American people as the victim and the former president as the partner:

Know that you are not alone and you are not crazy.

It’s okay to feel traumatized, but please don’t feel ashamed.

If your partner is not willing to acknowledge the problem and get professional help, get away. Your partner is probably not going to change.

Don’t worry about your abuser. Focus on yourself.

You are the most important part of this equation.

Jennifer Friedman, the director of Bronx and Manhattan Legal Project and Policy of Sanctuary for Families, has spoken with me about the mix of emotions—trauma and relief—that victims feel when an emotionally gaslighting abuser is removed from the picture. She also said, “The abuser has sought to silence your voice and diminish your self-worth, preventing you from feeling your own power. But you do have power, and seeking help (including speaking with an expert) may bring you more power. Taking back your power is an important step toward healing and reclaiming your life.”

My hope for 2021 is that we will say the name of the former president, our abuser, less, and say the names of those who suffered because of him more. We have the chance to chip away at the cycle of violence that we are conditioned to normalize from the time we are born and that was encouraged from the highest office in the land. We don’t have to think the same way; we just have to open our hearts and minds and listen to each other. Love, compassion, and our shared humanity will guide us, as inaugural poet Amanda Gorman said, up that hill we climb.

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has spoken powerfully about her experience with sexual assault and the trauma triggered by the Capitol siege. She was disturbed by the congressmen who told her to “move on”—a tactic of abusers so that they can abuse again.

Collectively, we’re getting out of an abusive relationship. Our recovery, like my personal recovery from abuse, won’t be overnight. We have a long road ahead, but on January 20, 2021, and during the subsequent weeks, the stage was set.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Are Helping a Texas Women’s Shelter in a Big Way

Making good on their promise to lead a life of service, newly-liberated royals Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are helping out Texas, which has recently been hit by a winter storm that left millions without power. 

Genesis Women’s Shelter & Support announced on February 21 that their organization, which provides shelter and counseling to women and children who have experienced domestic violence, received a donation from Prince Harry and Markle’s Archewell Foundation. Per their announcement, “[Harry and Meghan] are supporting [Genesis] by replacing the roof at our transitional housing facility & helping us meet our immediate needs.”

The storm and subsequent floods in Texas did major damage to the shelter’s facilities. Per People, Genesis had to “completely shut its doors for the first time in close to 40 years of operation” but has since re-opened. In a typical year, the organization serves around 3,700 women and children.

Jan Langbein, CEO of the company, praised Prince Harry and Meghan Markle for their generosity, saying in a statement, “Not only will this gift provide for our critical needs, it shines an international spotlight on violence against women and children, letting survivors know that they are not alone.”

The couple revealed on Valentine’s Day 2021 that they are expecting their second child together, and shortly thereafter announced, as did Buckingham Palace, that they would not be returning to their positions as senior, working members of the royal family. (They announced their departure last year on a trial basis, with plans to review their situation 12 months later. Now, it’s permanent.) Markle and Prince Harry were sure to note that despite Queen Elizabeth II’s statement about private citizens not leading a life of public service, they think “service is universal.” As we can see, they’re committed to putting their money where their principles are.

Daft Punk Split Up, and Fans Are Devastated

The helmeted EDM artists known as Daft Punk have broken up after 28 years of collaboration, their publicist revealed on February 22.

Per Variety, their publicist confirmed a “split” but didn’t provide any other details, like whether or not the duo might collaborate under a different name in the future. Variety‘s article speculates that the “contrarian” musicians might not be retiring in the traditional sense, as they’ve long rebuked the conventional music industry standards.

As one producer mused online, “If there’s one thing that art always wants to do, it’s to embrace change. Maybe Daft Punk want to do something 100% different with their creativity, or maybe the music industry changed so much in these 28 years that they don’t like it anymore. It’s up to us to carry the torch now.”

The French DJs, whose real names are Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, announced their “split” in an eight minute video called “Epilogue,” which was posted to YouTube. In the video, two figures walk through a desert. A figure in a silver helmet presses a button on a pack the figure in the gold helmet is wearing, then walks away. The man in the gold helmet explodes, and the sun rises as the duo’s song “Touch” plays. If you have questions, well, Love is the answer…

Daft Punk’s most recent album was 2013’s Grammy-winning Random Access Memories. Since then, they’ve collaborated a bit with The Weeknd. But given that it’s been a while, some are suggesting that this split might not be so out of the blue…

On Twitter, fans mourned the end of a beloved act.

They also joked about the band’s iconic helmets, posting pictures of other pairs with their faces covered to accompany their “RIP” sentiments:

BRB, listening to “Get Lucky” and ordering a metallic helmet online to cover our tears as we process these emotions.

TikTok Teens Have Made Another Decree: Skinny Jeans Are Out

It brings me no pleasure to report that mere months after banishing side-parted hair, Gen Z has come for millennials’ beloved skinny jeans. Does their wrath know no end?

According to Glow Up University (not an accredited academic institution), Gen Z “has spoken” and skinny jeans are over; we’re all supposed to wear straight-leg and boot-cut jeans now. So throw every pair of skinny jeans out of your closet now and start shopping, fellow Olds, or the Zoomers will come for you. 

I’m kidding, obviously. Wear whatever jeans you want. Skinny jeans! Boot-cut! Dark-wash! Distressed (which, thank God, Gen Z thinks are still cool)! I, for one, don’t have the time or budget to redo my pants wardrobe. I paid good money for my skintight skinny jeans, and I’m going to wear them, damn it! 

Why Gen Z is targeting skinny jeans is mystery—but the social media debate rages on. TikTok is their domain, so millennials fearfully clutching your favorite pair of Zara jeans, tread lightly as you swipe. You’ll probably find more allies on Twitter, where millennials and Gen Xers have made their position clear: Hands off our skinny jeans. 

“No offense but you can pry skinny jeans from my cold, dead hands .. i don’t care if this makes me a ‘millennial’ .. i will die on this hill,” one person tweeted. 

“Me rolling into the bars wearing skinny jeans when all of this is over,” another person wrote, alongside the iconic “How do you do, fellow kids?” GIF. 

Skinny jeans—especially on men—are absolutely emblematic of a specific era when everyone wore a purple American Apparel hoodie to listen to Fun. and sip Four Loko. That era has passed, and while I don’t think I ever never need to drink Four Loko (or listen to Fun.) again, skinny jeans? That’s one relic from 2011 I’d like to keep forever, thank you. Let me live, Gen Z! 

Gigi Hadid Just Shared Some Never-Before-Seen Photos of Baby Khai

Gigi Hadid took a quick trip down memory lane via Instagram Stories and revealed some adorable new photos of Khai, her pregnancy, nursery, and life with boyfriend Zayn Malik. And while she was careful not to show her young daughter’s face for privacy reasons, the photos are still a treasure trove for fans. 

From what we can see in the mirror selfie Hadid posted, it looks like she and Malik are embracing the earth-tone nursery trend. And from the wooden block carving on the shelf, we know they picked out the name Khai before the baby arrived. Decorative pillows add a little texture to a loveseat, and in the pic (dated September 8, 2020), Hadid rocks a tie-dye shirt.

Back in August, according to her throwbacks, Hadid chose the paint color for the nursery’s walls, considering shades like eggshell, ecru, and blush, though she ended up going with a reddish-orange-brown shade. She also revealed that earlier this year, she turned “half her office into Khai’s playroom,” decorating the place in baby pink and filling it with a canopy, lots of stuffed animals, and even a tiny ball pit. I didn’t even know they made those, but now that I do…do they come in adult sizes?

Throwing it all the way back, Gigi Hadid shared a memory from over a year ago, when she and makeup mogul Patrick Ta got frozen yogurt “right before” the model found out she was pregnant

In other pics Hadid shared, Khai is wearing a striped onesie and a personalized Tommy Hilfiger snow suit. We also have ones of Malik making ribs (a pregnancy craving, not that anyone needs an excuse) and taking their daughter on a walk.

“Our baby girl is here, healthy and beautiful,” Malik wrote on Instagram in September. “To try put into words how i am feeling right now would be an impossible task. The love I feel for this tiny human is beyond my understanding.”

Janet Jackson FaceTimed the UCLA Gymnast Who Did a Viral Routine Set to Her Music

Well, this is just the sweetest. On February 20, UCLA gymnast Margzetta Frazier got a call from the one and only Janet Jackson, who praised Frazier’s recent routine set to classic Janet tunes. (The floor set recently went viral.)

“I have to tell you…I keep telling you this, I keep saying, you’re incredible,” the pop icon told the young gymnast in a semi-surprise call posted on February 20. Per Yahoo! Sports, Frazier knew she’d be speaking to someone from Jackson’s team but didn’t know it would be the singer herself. Talking to “her hero,” Frazier got a little choked up.

Jackson told Frazier, “What started that [was] a friend sent me this video. And it was a video of you, and the routine you did. And when I watched it, I began to cry. And I was so thankful to God for all that He has allowed me to do, and given me. And just to see the work that I’ve done, the young generation still having fun with it the way that I did and still do, 35 years later.”

Frazier’s floor routine incorporates Jackson’s signature dance moves as well as the legend’s music. “I think you are incredible,” Jackson told Frazier. “I think you are beautiful. You’re so beautiful! The routine you did was excellent; you did it perfectly!” 

To this, Frazier said, “Thank you, I was studying.” Jackson added that she’d “love to be able to tumble like you; it’s gonna take a minute, though.” The two then made tentative plans to meet up for a chat and/or a tumbling lesson the next time Jackson visits Los Angeles. Please film that, queens!

After the call, Frazier wrote on Twitter, “Feeling so incredibly blessed and honored. Wow. The Bruins did great tonight! Thank you for sending us your beautiful energy! Today was a dream come true. So amazing meeting you.” 

Janet Jackson had previously posted a video of Margzetta Frazier‘s routine to Instagram, writing, “#iLuvIT @margzetta!!!! 🖤🖤🖤.” Frazier commented on the post with a series of crying emojis. Gotta love when crying emojis become a face-to-face, heart-to-heart, cry-to-cry.

Chris Noth Addresses Rumors Mr. Big Won’t Be in the Sex and the City Reboot

**UPDATE: February 22, 2021—**Chris Noth just addressed rumors Mr. Big won’t appear in the Sex and the City revival. When asked by a fan on Instagram why Big isn’t joining the show, Noth replied, “Everything changes- including announcements in the rags.” So…does this mean Mr. Big will be in the reboot? We need answers.


ORIGINAL STORY: 

After news broke that HBO is bringing back Sex and the City for a run of 10 episodes called And Just Like That… without Samantha Jones, fans started worrying the show wouldn’t work. Now it’s been revealed by Page Six  that another major player from the original series will be missing in action: Mr. Big,  a.k.a. John, a.k.a. Carrie’s husband. Troubling, to say the least.

It’s worth noting that Big wasn’t in every episode of the original series. He traveled a lot for work, so sure, maybe he and Carrie will still be canonically “together” even if he’s offscreen. But it’s also worth noting that he didn’t treat Carrie very well, so it wouldn’t be far-fetched if they broke up.  

Page Six reports that, in addition to Chris Noth, David Eigenberg—a.k.a. Steve, a.k.a. Miranda’s husband—might not be coming back either. But the outlet also has a source that says he might, so watch this space for news. (For what it’s worth: Steve and Miranda broke up in the first movie but got back together and seemed quite solid in the second!)

If Charlotte and Harry aren’t still together, we will literally scream and possibly take legal action.

Last we heard, Sex and the City star and producer Sarah Jessica Parker was telling fans to “wait and see” what would become of her character’s main love interest, after shutting down rumors he would be killed off. She also confirmed that the COVID-19 pandemic will be incorporated into the show, so hear us out: Big, Samantha, and possibly Steve were all on a cruise together and are quarantined just offshore for the entire series. Safe, secure, happy, but unavailable for key scenes. (Why these three characters would be on a cruise together is something for the writers to figure out, but we have faith.) 

On the other hand, bring back Justin Theroux!
