Cleaning House : Ari Lennox Is Looking For New Management And Lawyer

Ari Lennox‘s team a whole MESS.? Apparently the Dreamville starlet with one of the best albums
this year is looking to replace both her lawyer and manager. She took to Twitter to break some ppl off:

“LOOKING FOR A LAWYER AND NEW MANAGEMENT.”

She continued:

“I’m so happy to know who truly cares about my well being. It’s d*mn sure not certain people that I thought…People want to be there for the accolades but not the real grind. People love you when you’re the sweet baby doll but not when you’re human. Don’t want no more fake soulless sh*t around me.”

Just weeks ago, she shockingly declared that she was over the music industry, saying that she was done performing live.

Ari tweeted:

“After this year I’ll continue to drop music. But I’m not performing anymore outside of ig live or YouTube. God is good. I will pay back what was offered to me but literally I’m too thorough to be playing with my energy. People don’t know what happens behind the scenes.”

But, when her fellow industry newbie, Summer Walker, expressed the same feelings – she, ironically, encouraged her to keep going

The music industry is like a drug , once yo7 try it if your not strong its will F*CK you up!

For The Culture : ‘Makeup and Breakup’ Webseries

This webseries hits very close to home with its makeup and breakup scenarios we all know too well. I literally watched it twice in the same week.

On the outside looking in, Brooke (Nicolette Ellis) and Blake(Omar Salmon). appear to be the epitome of #BlackLove until Brooke decides to ditch their two-year relationship for good for her old boyfriend from back on the day.

Being the catch that he is , it doesnt take Blake long to fall for someone new and move on. Once word gets back to Brooke of Blake’s new love interest from her homegirl, she decides to resurface and tries to get her man back. Putting Blake all in his feeling of who to be with.

Also stars Sean Dominic, Emilio Evans, Kamel Goffin,  Karmia Berry, and Olivia Gray

Directed & Written by Eric J. Dickens

Catch up episode one and two of Makeup and Breakup Season 1 below before season 2 starts

After watching the second episode, I was convinced that Makeup and Breakup  is a amazing web series that I would love to see on Nexflix or Hulu. Dickens has created a masterpiece for the culture. We need to see more of this on tv and less reality shows with club fights and twerking.Dickens is bringing back quality shows.

Season 2 begins Nov 1

Question 1: So when’s the first time you fell in love with FASHION?

Ahh, what a good question!  I don’t think I actually fell in love with fashion until high school.  Before then, most of the schools I attended were uniform schools so they didn’t really allow us, the students, to express ourselves in that way.  I’ve always loved fashion though for as long as I can remember.  But, I don’t think I was able to REALLY fall in love with it until I was actually able to wear and express myself freely on a daily basis. 

Question 2 : Do you have a signature STYLE?

No, I don’t believe I do.  I feel like style, for me, is ever-changing.  I wouldn’t even want to box myself into one style by even saying I do.  I literally style myself based upon how I’m feeling that day.  One day you may see me and I’m in a formal dress, with 6 inch heels, and the very next day you’ll see me with ripped jeans and sneakers on.  That’s just how different and versatile my style is.

Question 3: Who is your favorite DESIGNER?

Currently I’m really feeling Oliver Rousteing, the designer for Balmain, but if we’re being honest, I really don’t believe I have a favorite.  I’m really not a big label person.  I tend to just buy it, if I like it, and honestly as with my style, it changes constantly for me. 

Question 4 : Who is your current STYLE crush? 

Ohh, I absolutely adore BrooklynBlonde’s style!  It’s something about her style selections, that just mesh seamlessly with my mine and what I like.  She’s amaze 🙂

Question 5: How do you pick the ensembles you display?

I first think about where I’m going, then I try to piece together something that will be both appropriate and fab for that place.  Sometimes I have to try things on just to make sure it looks right, and other times I have to change because I’m not feeling some part of the outfit. lol I know I’m not the only one! But, the biggest thing I think to putting looks together is making sure that it showcases your own personal style or flavor.  

Question 6 : What are some of your favorite boutiques to get your fashionable pieces?

I literally shop some of everywhere!  A few of my go-to places include Zara, Akira, H&M, and Urban Outfitters.  If we’re talking online, which is where I do a great deal of shopping, my go-to places include NastyGal, Asos, and Forever21.  (I find that Forever21 has a better selection online). 

Question  7 : I personally follow and adore you.  I think its dope how you have Clothes and Fros. How did that start?

You’re sweet!  Thanks so much, I really appreciate it!  ClothesandFros started because I wanted to put something out in the universe to inspire.  Inspire people.  Inspire individuality.  Inspire creativity.  I am a fully natural girl, so I thought it would be a good idea to also include hair in my blog, since it is also one of my passions.  I hope my blog helps people to feel good about who they are and helps to give people the courage to express themselves in any way that they see fit! 🙂
