Bonus Feature: What real black folks look like


(From Bossip, link on the right)

No L'Oreal lightening. No weave. No red carpet posing with bodyguards. Just a schlumpy bruthah and wife watching a game.
For all we regular folks--like them--Happy Thanksgiving.

That is hilarious.

Happy Turkey to you from the Mile High City.

No she still looks damn good. It is just that she looks like a black woman, and white people can't "identify" with that for crossover songs and promotions like for make up, so here comes the hair weave and the blonde highlites.

Just your average, gorgeous, Black gazillionaires next door.

Yes Knute but they just don't look like...themselves. LOL

Personally, I think they look great. I've never seen Jay-Z in glasses, and I like the longer hair. Beyonce looks much better - natural.

@Carl
LOL, yeah, I just couldn't help riffing on Wilt Chamberlain's autobiography. Meanwhile, where I grew up, the only time anyone says, "Doesn't he look like himself," is at his funeral.

um. memo to um, well to older people:

there is a new trend like the wear the clothes backward thing back in the day.

anyone remember the baby bottles and pacifiers?

Anyway, the goal is to look like a big nerd. Its like Geek Chic.

J is just rockin this new thing while his baby boo does the "I ain't even trying but look how cute I am anyway" natural look.

Walking Pop Culture Industries never just leave the house any old way. That would leave how many stylists and PR people homeless and wandering the streets?
