Much fab.

CoverGirl’s latest television spot is star-studded and fabulous, but instead of promoting any of their makeup line, they’re promoting something a little different: women empowerment!

Starring Katy Perry, Ellen DeGeneres, P!nk, Queen Latifah, Janelle Monáe, Becky G, and even ice hockey star Natalie Wiebe, their #GirlsCan ad is looking to leave people inspired and encouraged.

With all these stunning ladies sharing their experiences on how they changed "girls can’t" into "girls can", we feel this campaign is one to be remembered.

Especially with how rare a message this is in the beauty industry! As Ellen says, "easy, breezy, and beautiful".

Ch-ch-check it out (above)!!

THE HAT IS BACK! BUT THIS TIME IT'S RED!

Every year, the NBA All-Star Weekend is the perfect opportunity to showcase some of the best players in the league! So why not also show a little bit of love to some of the best acts in the music industry as well??

Saturday night, Kenrick Lamar provided a much needed break from the incredibly confusing rules of the skills competitions to perform a rocked out rendition of m.A.A.d city which he followed up with the much more mellow Bitch, Don't Kill My Vibe!

Sunday brought out even more stars as Pharrell and his giant red hat kicked off the All-Star Game with a star studded line-up of his own, which included Nelly, Busta Rhymes, Chad Hugo, Diddy, and Snoop Dogg! Even his favorite had made a cameo during the performance!

Then at halftime, Trombone Shorty took center stage with a little help from his friends Doctor John, Gary Clark Jr., Janelle Monáe, and Earth, Wind, & Fire!

Talk about an All-Star lineup of performers!

Ch-ch-check out Kendrick's performance (above) and see the rest AFTER THE JUMP!!!

eminem super bowl performance turn down

Isn't the Super Bowl itself party enough??

We guess not! Eminem totally got an offer to perform for the NFL Owners Party during Super Bowl week (whatever happened to just Super Bowl Sunday??), an offer that he had to turn down because it was offensively low by his standards or whatevz!

Apparently his going price is $2 million, and they only offered him
