no title

This is some powerful stuff.

If you've been paying attention to national news lately, then you're aware that America is currently suffering from an increase in black deaths at the hands of police.

While victims like Alton Sterling, Philando Castile, Sandra Bland, Eric Garner, Tamir Rice, and Trayvon Martin may never get justice at this rate, Alicia Keys is done with seeing her brothers and sisters gunned down by people who are supposed to be there to help.

That's why the singer teamed up with Mic.com to create #23Ways, a public service announcement that highlights just some of the ways black people can be killed on a daily basis.

But Alicia couldn't just do this alone… she recruited help from Beyoncé, Rihanna, Chris Rock, Taraji P. Henson, Pink, Janelle Monáe, Pharrell, Common, Rosario Dawson, Queen Latifah, Kevin Hart, Lenny Kravitz, Zoë Kravitz, Jada Pinkett Smith, Bono, Jennifer Hudson, Adam Levine, A$AP Rocky, Chance the Rapper, Talib Kweli, Swizz Beatz, Van Jones, and Tracee Ellis Ross to make this the most star-powered PSA possible!

What a turnout!

So many of our faves were at the VH1 Hip Hop Honors: All Hail The Queens event in New York Monday night.

Queen Latifah, Kelly Rowland, and Amber Rose proved that nothing beats a little black dress.

They all looked divine in their respective frocks, with Latifah in a regal gown with leg slit that was sexy as hell, Kelly in a tight lace number that showed off her toned figure, and Amber in a sexy/casual scoop neck dress that brought all the cleavage.

It's almost like they planned this!
