Do you believe those reports that Amal Clooney is pregnant? Then you’ll believe we came across Amal’s secret diary, and here’s the most recent entry:

Shit! We just lost another case and couldn't get Egypt to release those two journalists, whatshisname and whatshisname. On the other hand, did you see the press conference after the verdict? I looked magnificent. My white pantsuit was meant to signify purity, if it please the court. I was like a white knight or an avenging angel or something. All eyes on me, beyond a reasonable doubt.
The magazines are still going nuts for my gold dress but it turns out that you could see my underpants in certain lights. Thank goodness I didn't go commando! George prefers me in boxer shorts but our contract stipulates that I can wear a thong for special events. As I tell my clients, get it in writing!
Speaking of court, Cindy wants me to take up tennis but I don't see the point of running around after balls unless it burns more calories than my treadmill. I think she gets lonely when George and Randee are away on business or off on their motorbikes. I prefer to use the time for a threading appointment or reading about myself online.
Meanwhile, my stylist can't seem to understand how quickly I go through outfits! I will not repeat an outfit. This is why I'm a fucking icon.
If she can't reach Stella by tonight, that bitch is recused.
Breaking down the bias of comfort films.
With the constant onslaught of complicated news that 2020 has brought, sometimes you just want to be able to shut off your brain, relax, and feel happy.
Enter comfort films. These are the feel-good movies that feel like a warm hug when you finish them, the ones that allow you to escape for a short while. We often turn to these types of films in times of trouble or extreme stress, and when we're not sure what films of this nature we should watch, we turn to the Internet for options.
We know Ellis Ross is fun and has an offbeat style, but her hairstyle felt like a caricature, and one that was completely unnecessary because there are Black women who have the kind of hair she seemed to be trying to mimic.
Black hair is political.
It is still a radical act for Black people to wear our hair just as it grows out of our heads.
Just as Black people are diverse, Black hair is inclusive of a broad range of colors, textures, density, and porosity. Terms like 3B and 4C are commonly used to describe hair types. While some people still think of hair types as a grading scheme, much like the debate about having "good hair," we are learning more about how hair types have specific care needs. As we grow deeper in love with ourselves and our hair, Black people are looking for the best products on the market and are committed to supporting Black businesses.
When Tracee Ellis Ross announced the launch of Pattern Beauty, there was a lot of buzz and excitement. A Black woman we love and whose hair has always been an unapologetically overwhelming feature was going to respond to Black hair care needs. Sign us up! Now, however, with her Elle magazine cover, some Black women are wondering if Ross is taking up too much of the Black hair space.
