Itsnotyouitsme Report 98: Things to Know

Photobucket The Queen Of R&B/Pop Enjoys The High-Life, Literally, And Why Shouldn't She?! - via

Photobucket We All Love Home Delivery, But Come On Now, This Is Absurd And Not To Mention Just Flat Out Gross. - via

Photobucket "Taylor Swift Wants to Bake Cookies With Karlie Kloss: The Vogue cover girl (interrupted) reveals this and many more fascinating tidbits like how “awkward” she was in middle school and that her next album will be about (surprise!) heartbreak." - - via

Photobucket "Karl Lagerfeld Heads to Japan: The Chanel Creative Director is taking a monster tour of the country to promote the opening of a seven-week exhibit on the brand’s iconic tweed jackets, put on a second winter couture show, and open a pop-up shop. Phew! With all the projects he’s been taking on recently, we’re convinced Uncle Karl might actually be a robot." - - via

Photobucket "Andrea Linett Joins the Michael Kors Team: After going public at the end of last year, Michael Kors continues its world domination expansion by appointing Andrea Linett (formerly Lucky‘s founding creative director) to a new post as vice president and global creative director. While the job description is a little vague (WWD says Ms. Linett will be “working across various concepts at the company, and contribut[ing] to the overall consistency and coherence of them,” whatever that means,) we congratulate Linett on her new job, and Michael Kors for adding jobs to our floundering economy!" - - via

Photobucket "Zooey Deschanel Covers February’s Allure: America’s favorite manic pixie dreamgirl attempts to blow out an imaginary candle with her ruby pout." - - via

Photobucket "Mickey Drexler Doesn’t Like Malls, But Young Shoppers Do: J.Crew CEO Mickey Drexler reportedly complained that the “pungent odors” of malls detracts from the overall shopping experience. Meanwhile, a recent poll shows that most 18-25 actually prefer shopping in stores (as opposed to online), using it as an excuse to be social. While there’s no doubt that today’s shopping centers have a very different vibe from the Mall Rats era, sometimes you just need to stop for an arcade game or Orange Julius on your way to J.Crew. And who didn’t fantasize about being locked overnight in a mall? Let’s keep the dream alive, Mickey." - - via

Photobucket "Ellen DeGeneres and Sofia Vergara’s CoverGirl Makeup Tutorial: Ellen and Sofia, who are currently both CoverGirls and funny girls, team up to show the correct (read: hilarious and detrimental to breathing) way to apply makeup in the morning. Hilarity ensues." - - via

Photobucket "Conde Nast Buys Major Office Space: The magazine publishing giant, which has completely defied mags-on-the-decline stats, is planning to expand even further upon its already-purchased 1.05million square feet in the upcoming 1 World Trade Center tower with an additional 133,000 square feet. Looks like Anna Wintour can look forward to a whole lotta extra space to practice her ribbon dancing routines in 2014." - - via

Photobucket "Jay-Z Lays Off Workers In Time for Baby Blue’s Arrival: Looks like Blue Ivy won’t be receiving baby gifts from 28 staffers in daddy Jay-Z’s Rocawear camp, who were all laid off just one day prior to the Chosen One’s birth due to “economic reasons.” Since Jay might need reminding of what “50 grand is to a mother-effer like [him],” we’ll explain: It’s a whole lot to some other people who are suddenly without jobs." - - via

Photobucket "Fascinators Banned from June’s Royal Ascot: The Royal Ascot in Britain is cracking down on fascinators, cleavage, and, well… crack. A new, more clearly stated dress code is now officially in place for the event in an effort to swing it from chavy to classy: Strapless tops and above-the-knee hems are banned. Fancy fascinators will only be allowed in the grandstand areas; whereas the royal enclosure (aka the big boy seats) will allow only hats and headpieces that cover at least 4″ of the head at the base. Look out for K-Mid sporting the latest fad, hat-hair." - - via

Photobucket "Parsons Alums to Design for Christian Louboutin: For the never-ending celebration of the brand’s 20th anniversary, Christian Louboutin is enlisting the talents of Parsons alums to design garments to fit the Loubi aesthetic. Five 2010-2011 graduates were chosen, and their designs will be on display at the Louboutin 20th anniversary event at Bergdorf Goodman in early February. Congratulations to the winners, we can’t wait to see what they’ve come up with!" - - via

Photobucket "Topshop and the British Fashion Council’s NEWGEN is Teaming Up Once Again: for a collection of t-shirts designed by some of its most noted alums including Mary Katrantzou, Christopher Kane, and Meadham Kirchhoff. The collaboration is in celebration of Topshop’s ten-year affiliation with the NEWGN designer sponsorship, and will be available during London Fashion Week in stores and online at Topshop, as well as in the retailer’s LFW pop-up shop in Selfridges." - - via

Photobucket "Kate Middleton to Run A Mile: As part of the Sports Relief charity, the Duchess and her husband will run a mile through London on March 25. Wonderful as it is to hear of KMid running for charity, we wonder if she’d ever look to competitive eating as a way to raise money." - - via

Photobucket "Ungaro Can’t Catch a Break: It hasn’t been a good start to 2012 for Emanuel Ungaro, which announced that, in addition to not being able to deliver its spring collection to retailers, it also won’t be presenting a fall collection at fashion week and has canceled all appointments for pre-fall. Current owner Asim Abdullah vaguely stated that the brand is going through an “internal reorganization” that will allow for Ungaro to become “profitable in the near future.” Hmm… This seems suspiciously (and perfectly) timed for former Ungaro guest-designer Lindsay Lohan’s 2012 comeback. Coincidence?" - - via

Photobucket "Designers Cash in on Chinese New Year with Dragon Motifs: The girl with the dragon handbag? Everyone from Rolls-Royce to Versace to Coach is putting out limited edition dragon-related products in “celebration” of the Chinese New Year. Or perhaps just celebrating their way to the bank – The “Year of the Dragon Phantom” Rolls, priced at $1.2Mil, had already sold out by the first week of January." - - via

Photobucket "Brian Atwood Launching Handbags: The footwear designer has unveiled his first collection of small handbags and clutches for spring, and says he’ll expand into larger bags for this upcoming fall. Could this eventually lead to a revival of the matching-shoes-and-handbag trend?" - - via

Photobucket "Carey Mulligan Takes a Tumble in Repeat Dress: Carey wore the same Roland Mouret dress on two red carpets in one month, and tripped in front of a crowd in her really tall YSL pumps. I think this calls for a collective ‘aaaaaw.” Ready? “Aaaaaw.”" - - via

Photobucket "YouTube Breaks Down the Karl Lagerfeld Language Barrier: If you’ve ever had trouble understanding Captain Chanel’s heavily accented speech, here’s YouTube’s earily accurate closed captioning feature to the rescue. Karl is actually full of worldly gems, like singing about dogs and assessing rugs. Now you know." - - via

Photobucket "Dior Releases Garden-Scented Nail Polishes: Dior has launched a set of nail polishes entitled “Garden Party” that allegedly release an “intoxicating rose fragrance” when dry. They’d better, because at $23 a pop, there’s no way we’re actually gardening with these babies painted on our fingers." - - via

Nicki Minaj Stupid Hoe

Nicki Minaj cranks out another promotional single and video for her newest track "Stupid Hoe" from her repackaged sophomore album, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded.

The entrancing Hype Williams directed video is a perfect fit for the intense urban club track that will gain praise from the hardcore fans and equal hate from the feeble.

If you aint a Stupid Hoe click below! ;)
