I believe the children are our future. I’ve never believed it more than while watching footage of North West at the Jean Paul Gaultier show during Paris Haute Couture Week.

The 9-year-old daughter of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West was front row at several Paris fashion shows this season, rocking a slew of big street style fits. But as much as I adore her style, her hair, her big sunglasses (we’ll get back to this later), nothing was more show-stopping than her viral moment: holding a sign that said “STOP” to the paparazzi.

It wouldn't be hyperbolic to say that Prince is one of the most influential musicians of all time.

Beyonce credits Prince with taking her to the next level as an artist by recommending she learn to play piano. Lianne La Havas had tea parties with him. Frank Ocean — despite his own almost mythical status — was rendered starstruck just by the sight of him. And countless artists credit Prince's majestic performances and his iconic catalogue as major inspirations.

I thought love was dead in Hollywood when Harry Styles and Olivia Wilde announced their break up. It seems Miss Flo won the Don’t Worry Darling saga, probably playing Taylor Swift’s “Karma” all the way to the bank. But just when I was gearing up for my own personal "villain era" (or “Bitch era” as EmRata has coined) in the wake of this monumental split, love came back in a big way. It’s a Christmas miracle!

And with a royal baby, at that!

Kris Jenner is a mastermind. Say what you will about her — my litany of grievances is far-far too long to air here — but she’s good at her job. Unfortunately for us (not her, she’s rich!), her chief roles and responsibilities include profiting from attention, scandal, and dare we mention controversy. All too often this comes at the expense of marginalized groups — from the Black women whose aesthetics the KarJenners exploit, the Black men they fetishize for clout, the employees they underpay and mistreat, plus scores of people who are collateral damage in the wake of their empire.

The latest eye-roll-inducing — but no doubt highly lucrative— publicity stunt orchestrated by Kris Jenner is none other than her daughter’s branded wedding. Yes, you heard that right. Branded. Wedding. And the brand of choice? None other than the ceaselessly problematic Dolce & Gabbana.
