Good for you, Angie!
According to 'sources', the new tattoos are 'Buddhist blessings for peace, love and a prosperous life.' But considering what we know about 'sources,' they may be transcripts of her rumored divorce proceedings. That's what my own source tells me.
Apparently, the new designs match the existing Cambodian tattoo Jolie has on her left shoulder, which she got when she adopted Maddox.
According to Vanity Fair, Angie has flown to Thailand on at least two occasions to have work by Bangkok tattoo artist Sompong Kanphai. Sompong inked the
hideous massive Bengal tiger on Angie's lower back, which she commissioned to celebrate her Cambodian citizenship in 2004.
Oh my god, I forgot all about that one, didn't you? But now you won't:
If anything screams 'Cambodian Citizenship,' this is it. Just wonderful.
And just last December, she revealed a nice new blocky tattoo on her forearm.
Well there you have it. You are up to date on Angelina Jolie, tattoo-wise.
It is not for us to ask what's the motivation for all this ink. Does she crave pain? Does it make her feel mavericky? Is it a cry for help or a bid for more attention?
Only Angie and her Buddhist priest know for sure.
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.
