NICKI MINAJ CALLS OUT THE FASHION INDUSTRY FOR APPROPRIATING BLACK CULTURE

"Designers get really big and really rich off of our culture." Nicki Minaj has been making her usual rounds at  this season, sitting front row and joining the party circuit, but that doesn't mean she'll refrain from pointing out the fashion world's flaws. After attending the Philipp Plein Spring 2018 show on Saturday, the superstar rapper took a dig at the industry during the designer's afterparty. "Thank you Philipp Plein for including our culture," she said, according The Cut. "Designers get really big and really rich off of our culture, and then you don’t see a motherfucker that look anything like us in the front row half the time. So let’s make some noise for Philipp Plein tonight." Minaj sat front row for Plein's cabaret-themed show. Other notable attendees included 50 Cent, Fabolous, EJ Johnson and Yo Gotti, who performed with Nicki at the afterparty. The show also featured a diverse cast of models, with celebrities like Rae Sremmurd, 21 Savage, Metro Boomin and Snoop Dogg's son Cordell Broadus gracing the runway with Adriana Lima, Irina Shayk, Jasmine Sanders, Elsa Hosk and Shanina Shaik. Teyana Taylor closed the show with another fierce walk and Future performed live during the presentation.

😱 Wendy Williams hits Barbados beach after Hurricane Irma

Wendy Williams didn’t let the aftermath of Hurricane Irma interrupt her vacation plans. The gossip talk-show host, 53, took to the sandy beaches of Barbados on Monday in an eye-popping black bikini. She wore her hair in a messy up-do, her signature diamond “W” pendant, hot-pink shades and, of course, her oversize diamond ring. Williams, who turned vegan over two years ago, appeared completely at ease and relaxed on her holiday. She was also joined by longtime husband Kevin Hunter. Amid Hurricane Irma’s path of destruction, a 16-year-old junior professional surfer died in Barbados while surfing large swells brought on by the hurricane. The island, which largely escaped Irma’s wrath, is being used as a distribution hub for providing supplies to nearby countries. Williams’ trip to the Caribbean may be her last for a while. Her eponymous talk show will return for its latest season on Sept. 18.
