Vince Staples dropped a short film with the same name has his recent EP, Prima Donna and it's beautiful.

Damn, Lena Dunham back at it again offending people. In a interview with pal Amy Schumer she projected some shitty comments about herself onto Odell Beckham, who was minding his own business. Of course she then took the offensive on Twitter until the heat became too much and she had an “honest” conversation with a black director and turned around and apologized.

Kanye please why do you this to us? The rapper tweeted out that he wanted only mixed race girls for his Yeezy Season 4 casting call. Deservedly twitter went off on him

Alexander Wang added 20 more young celebs to his squad campaign for this fall.
