Rihanna Speaks Reuniting With Chris Brown, Finding Love Again, Having Kids & More In Elle Magazine

On her breakup with Chris Brown: “It gave me guns. I was like, well, fuck. They know more about me than I want them to know. It’s embarrassing. But that was my opening. That was my liberation, my moment of bring it. […] Now you know that, so you can say what you want about it. I don’t have anything to hide.”

On the backlash over their reconciliation:
“The bottom line is that everyone thinks differently. It’s very hard for me to accept, but I get it. People end up wasting their time on the blogs or whatever, ranting away, and that’s all right. Because tomorrow I’m still going to be the same person. I’m still going to do what I want to do.”

Fall For Your Type

Trying To Convince Myself I Found One
Making A Mistake I Never Learned From!
I Swear, I Always Fall For Your Type (yeah)
For Your Type.  – “Fall For Your Type” Jamie Foxx & Drake

He’s attractive, we have great chemistry, and there goes that old familiar feeling.

However, when I pause the R&B love songs for a moment, I take a look at the situation surrounding the man. I’ve often made the mistake of seeing the man in isolation and wonder how I end up blind-sided. It’s like standing in the eye of the hurricane and not recognizing the storm around you.

His situation is … messy. There’s a lingering ex (of course), a wall up around his heart (not ready for a relationship), and a desire to see where this goes (friends w/ benefits) with no actual outcome in mind.

Oh.

I’ve seen this movie and I know how it ends. In fact, I’ve starred in this movie as the leading lady on multiple occasions. I’m starting to feel like Kimberly Elyse – constantly type cast as the down trodden black woman injured by love – ugly cry and everything.

He says to me that “He’s not like the other guys and you never know how something will turn out with different people and different times.”

Where do I draw the line? Am I too scared to put my heart out there again and so I use every excuse to avoid doing so? Or am I finally wise enough to recognize the train wreck coming and get off the track?

Madonna ‘MDNA’ Tops US Billboard Album Chart

Madonna’s ‘MDNA’ album has sold 359,000 copies in its first week, making it the eighth time she has topped the Billboard 200 album charts.

Although reviews were mixed, in it’s debut ‘MDNA’ reached No.1 on iTunes in 40 countries. Surprising considering the album’s debut single, “Give Me All Your Luvin’” only peaked number 37 on the charts back in February.

‘MDNA’‘ has also topped the UK charts this week, making her the most successful solo artist ever in UK album charts – one album ahead of Elvis Presley’s record of 11 chart-topping albums.

Despite her many critics, looks like Madge still has that it factor! And, she certainly has her loyal fans who are relentless to say the least. Congrats Madonna.

Beautiful Skin: Keeping Make-Up Brushes Clean

Do you use the same facial towel for months at a time without washing the towel? Then why would you do that with your make up brushes? Even if you use your brushes every day or once a month, you’ll need to care for the brushes to avoid damage and feeding-grounds for bacteria.

If you have problem skin (sensitive or acne), it’s recommended you clean your brushes up to two times a week if you are using the brushes frequently. At minimum, each brush should be cleaned once a week. I may not always do a full smokey eye to go to Target, but I may dab on some foundation to brighten up a bit. My foundation brush gets used more frequently than my other brushes so I’ll clean that one to two times more often than my eye shadow brushes. Bacteria in your brushes can lead to break outs and oil build up which impacts how your make up looks on your skin.

The most important thing to keep in mind is keeping the brushes clean and free from damage. I’m not a professional make-up artist so don’t take this as the end all be all only method for cleaning brushes.

Salma Hayek Covers Lucky Magazine

In the latest issue of Lucky magazine actress Salma Hayek sits down to talk about many things actually. She speaks on moving to Paris with her husband and how he has inspired her. She also speaks on her early days as an actress with bad acne with no work and no money, developing her own skin care line, wishing she was more like friend and fellow actress Demi Moore and much more.

On Moving To Paris
Salma moved there three years ago, when she married French businessman François-Henri Pinault; they have a four-year-old, Valentina. “It’s nuts, how good the people look, too,” she says. “Nobody’s overweight, everybody’s well dressed, no tennis shoes—somehow, even though they walk all over the place, everyone manages to wear real shoes, nice shoes.”

On Having Bad Acne & Struggling As An Actress
When the editor compliments Salma on her glowing skin she responds with, “My skin?! When I was 25 and I left being a soap opera star in Mexico to go try to be a movie star in Hollywood and all of Mexico was laughing at me? And I could barely get work as an extra? You want to talk about bad skin? I had acne. And this acne was so bad, it sent me into a severe, severe depression. Like I couldn’t leave the house. I’d wake up in the morning and lie there and touch my face before I got up, just to prepare myself to look in the mirror! “The next stage with that sort of depression is food: too little, or too much. Guess what I did? I mean, I was fat and broken out, I couldn’t leave the house and I couldn’t pay the rent!” A friend, she says, saved her: “Alfonso Cuarón—amazing director—he came to the house. He did not play it down, he did not try to say, Oh you look fine. He said you can’t do this to yourself and taught me to meditate, relax. I got myself back together!” She also went on Accutane. “I didn’t want to, but it cured it. Since then my skin’s forever sensitive and dry.”

Meagan Good Gets Engaged To Boyfriend Devon Franklin

Meagan Good is engaged to her preacher boyfriend Devon Franklin.

A rep confirms to TMZ, 30-year-old Good recently got engaged to DeVon Franklin — an exec at Sony Pictures Entertainment who leads a double life as a 7th Day Adventist preacher. The preacher proposed last month in L.A, but the couple has known each other for years. They began dating just after production wrapped on “Jumping the Broom” … which Meagan starred in, and DeVon produced.

No official wedding date has been set.

Honestly last time I checked, Meagan Good was single and in a relationship with God. That’s according to her interview with Sister2Sister magazine just this past October.

If TMZ’s timeline is correct, then Good and Franklin haven’t been dating for much more than a year. Perhaps even shorter.
