Over at the Washington Post, Robin Givhan gives us the backstory of how nail artist Bernadette Thompson’s iconic money manicure ended up in its rightful place—the Museum of Modern Art.
T.J. Miller, the comedian best known for playing Erlich Bachman on HBO’s endlessly frustrating sitcom Silicon Valley and slapping an Uber driver, sat down with The Hollywood Reporter recently for what they describe as “a wide-ranging and, at times, eccentric interview.”
Here’s the tinkling, minimalist, stacked remix of Missy Elliot’s newest offering “I’m Better” featuring Eve, Lil Kim and the Diamond Princess herself, Trina.
In today’s Tweet Beat, Iman and Lil Kim were dolls, Tyra Banks hits the drive thru and Mischa Barton is still on vacation.
This VH1 Hip-Hop Honors performance—featuring Dej Loaf, Lil Mama and Teyana Taylor—is how many of us imagined ourselves at prepubescent ages, cautiously memorizing dirty lyrics and seeing Lil Kim’s Day Glow costumes and wigs in the “Crush on You” video.
Your favorite sassy auntie Patti Labelle has a cooking special coming soon. The show will also have Whoopi Goldberg, Michelle Williams of Destiny’s Child and Patti’s old Dancing with the Stars partner Artem Chigvintsev over for dinner.
BuzzFeed tweeted out this little nugget of internet content and it sure has me mighty confused. For some reason, they decided to post side-by-side pictures of Lil Kim and Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande. The problem is that they left one important thing out.
Dancing with the Stars is a television phenomenon I cannot really get into—former dance teacher here, thinking the choreo is trife—but you know what I can get into? R&B POWERHOUSES ON DUELING VOCAL INTERCHANGE. That is exactly what happened when none other than your god and spiritual mother Patti Labelle showed up to…

Weekly-ish, a pre-approved, snap-judged music guide based on our very scientific, non-subjective Yes/No rating system. There's really no debating this, come on, stop.
The Soul Train Music Awards were actually filmed on November 7 in Las Vegas, but they aired Sunday night so we remember the red carpet just like it was yesterday. Oh, the memories! Lotta sparkles, satin, and plunging necklines in this piece.
Don't call it a comeback (or them, femcees, for that matter, ew): on Sunday's Soul Train Awards, the Missy-Kim-Da Brat power trio joined forces for the performance of their 1996 hit "Not Tonight (Ladies Night Remix)" in 16 years. No Angie Martinez, though (RIP Left Eye)—but Total was there! Also: MC Lyte, Yo-Yo,…
Azealia Banks' debut album Broke With Expensive Taste, which she surprise-released last week after easing out from under her Universal deal, is excellent—so much better than skeptics might have assumed, considering the hit that landed her the deal in the first place dropped a billion years ago. ("212," and it was…
I'm going to need a sane adult who is a friend of Lil' Kim's to kindly take her by the hand and lead her out of the recording booth before she completely destroys her Rap Legend status.
Today was a big momma thang for Lil' Kim, who gave birth to her first child this morning in New Jersey. The baby—a little girl who weighed in at 6 pounds, 5 ounces—has become yet another in a long line of unfortunately-named celebrity babies.
TMZ posted photos of expectant mother JWoww, with a headline and copy that falsely identified her as rapper Lil' Kim.
