- Kendrick says the message is not about how he wants to kill people, it's about how "we gonna be alright"
- Focusing on Kendrick standing on a cop car is deluding the real problem which is how kids' lives get taken. Focusing on this is avoiding the reality of the world.
- Kendrick says that they can't take away the hope that things will be okay at the end of the day.
- "Hip-hop is not the problem, the problem is the reality of the situation."

Reddit's Director of Communications, Victoria Taylor (/u/chooter), was allegedly dismissed today. In response, multiple subreddits, including /r/IAmA, /r/Askreddit, /r/movies, /r/gaming, /r/history, /r/science, /r/art, /r/law, and /r/spain have gone private in protest. Victoria is most known for coordinating Reddit's AMAs (Ask Me Anything), including the one with Obama and the one with the guy that has two dicks.

Indie folk feminist queen Leighton Meester was spotted showing off her baby bump in a cute white sundress a few days ago! Is her fashion sense pulling at your #Heartstrings (buy on iTunes now!), ONTD?
-First person horror game. You wake up as the protagonist with no memory in your town home.

Rih had the white bitch swinging from a noose !!!!! She lit !!!!!!— AZEALIA BANKS (@AZEALIABANKS) July 2, 2015
Wow. Rihanna in bbhmm clip with the blood on her. What a witch. I got chills . Yes yes yes— AZEALIA BANKS (@AZEALIABANKS) July 2, 2015
*It was Rihanna's idea to strip the woman naked when she was hung upside down suspended
*HuffPo says Rihanna shows Rihanna is a feminist, brilliant, and that white feminists will hate it
*When Beyonce stood in front of the word Feminist she got slaughtered, when Rihanna stans in front of a sexualized image of violence against women she gets praised
How long will you give Rihanna a pass, ONTD?
Earlier this week, the owner of Lorac Cosmetics did an AMA on the r/makeupaddiction subreddit. The subreddit had been excited about the chance, as Lorac is a much loved company on the site, but the actual AMA was pretty lackluster. Users noted that the responses seemed canned and often didn't even answer the question at all. Furthermore, Carol answered (though some users doubted that Carol even was a part of the AMA and there weren't many actual answers) very few of the questions posed.
zenzizenzizenzike 163 points 2 days ago
Why is the brand pronounced "La-rock" when the spelling suggests "Lo-rack"?
[–]glamodoOfficial Glamodo 24 points 2 days ago
LORAC is Carol spelled backwards and LUH-ROCK is just the way I personally pronounced it. This is how we say it and now you can spread the word!
[–]mmcrowle 29 points 2 days ago
Any advice for people thinking about getting into (or switching!) the beauty industry?
[–]glamodoOfficial Glamodo -224 points 2 days ago
Yes! It's an incredible industry and I would highly recommend it. It's been good to me.
[–]diana_dmHopelessly Addicted 90 points 2 days ago
Thank you for being here! As you know, there was a bit of outrage last year regarding distribution of Mega Pro palette. Did you expect this palette to be so successful? Is Lorac coming up with a similar palette for this year?
[–]glamodoOfficial Glamodo -235 points 2 days ago
Thanks for your question about MEGA PRO. At the time, MEGA PRO was a limited edition product that sold out. I was very disappointed that not everyone was able to get their hands on it. Stay tuned. We have some very exciting launches coming up.
[–]HermioneGee 146 points 2 days ago
Hi Carol! Lorac is my favorite brand of eyeshadows and I collect all of your palettes. I was wondering if you panned on extending your face products (foundations, powders, contour palettes etc) to include women of color? And if not, Why? While I'm not the darkest AA, your darkest shades are still about 5 times too light and I know that with the amazing quality of your products, you would have no problems gaining WOC as loyal customers. Thank you in advance :)
[–]glamodoOfficial Glamodo -436 points 2 days ago
So glad to hear you love our palettes! We're constantly trying to reach a wider customer base and offer our products to as many women as possible.

what fueled your love and creation of makeup?
[–]glamodoOfficial Glamodo -58 points 2 days ago
My aunt gave me a gift to go to a salon in Beverly Hills when I was 17 years old to have my makeup professionally done. I wasn't in to it all all, to be honest, but I didn't want to hurt her feelings, so I decided to go. I am SO glad I went. It was a life changing experience. I'll never forget how incredible that makeup artist made me look and feel. While she was doing my makeup, is when I had the first thought of "maybe this is something I could do." When I was leaving the salon and went outside, some guy honked at me and that sealed the deal.
[–]jacks_a_million 33 points 2 days ago
What's your favorite eye look to do using the Lorac Pro? And who has been your favorite celebrity client to work on? Thanks for stopping by!
[–]glamodoOfficial Glamodo 37 points 2 days ago
My signature look is a smokey eye paired with a nude lip. It's a classic look that never goes out of style. I've been working with Nicole Kidman for over 20 years and she just keeps getting more and more beautiful. Love her!
[–]HMLDurbinAspiring Makeup Artist 42 points 2 days ago
Thanks for doing this AMA! First I wanted to thank you for your beautiful collection and your sensible tutorials online. I so enjoy your brand! I really appreciate that in your larger palettes you always include light and dark shades that lend to shading and tinting other colors. One of my favorite combinations of your first pro shadow palette is mauve and pewter- do you design your palettes around the idea that the shadows should be mixed and if so what are some of your favorite combos you've played with?
Also if you could only have one brush to get a successful smokey eye what would it be?
[–]glamodoOfficial Glamodo -126 points 2 days ago
I'm a professional makeup artist and I work really hard when I am creating my palettes to make them as user friendly and as color coordinated as possible. In each of my palettes, I always like to make sure there are options for highlighters, crease shades, liners, etc., everything you need in one palette. My go-to combos that I use the most are Nude, Taupe, Lt. Brown, Sable, Espresso, and Black, but don't get me wrong, I do love my shimmers. They are actually all of my favorite because I hand pick all of the shades in every palette!
[–]hobbitqueenIG: jennleemakeupartistry 23 points 2 days ago
I love the pro eyeshadow, I have the pro palettes 1 and 2 as well as the mega and am looking forward to the metal and matte palettes! My question is, which is your favorite shade from the pro line?
[–]glamodoOfficial Glamodo 17 points 2 days ago
WOW, that's a hard question. I love them all, but if I HAD to choose one where I've hit pan many many many times, it would be Nude from the original PRO palette.
[–]threefer 15 points 2 days ago
Hi there. First, I just want to say that I really appreciate you taking the time to do this. My favorite product of yours is the Front the Line liquid eyeliner. Are you considering an expansion in colors? I'd love to see a white or some other bright color in your formula. It's easily the best I've encountered!
[–]glamodoOfficial Glamodo -134 points 2 days ago
Hi! I LOVE doing this! My favorite thing in the world is to talk to you guys.
Check out my new Front of the Line PRO Eye Pencil. They come in 14 colors, including white and nude.
[–]LongArmedFloozy 17 points 2 days ago
Hi Carol! Thanks so much for doing this. I am a prestige manager at Ulta and am currently hiding in the back room as I type this haha. So I know that your company started as a means of makeup for super sensitive skin, does this still remain true? I know that it's not as marketed for sensitivity as Bare or Tarte. But it's a really great selling point!
Also, can we see any new shadow palettes in the future? People love the formula but are starting to lean towards wanting the "mattes".
Thanks so much for doing this AMA!!!
Also, how was doing Fran Drescher's makeup?
[–]glamodoOfficial Glamodo -32 points 2 days ago
HELLO ULTA! Yes, I did start LORAC with a line of foundations formulated for all skin types, including sensitive skin. I continue to develop products with sensitive skin in mind. However, as an artistry brand, I want to make sure that people know that the products make your skin look flawless on top of being good for you. As far as mattes are concerned, we launched the PRO Matte Palette yesterday, which contains 8 brand new matte eye shadows. I love Fran! She's beautiful and so much fun to work with.
[–]DalishElf 11 points 2 days ago
Thank you for this AMA, Carol!
If you could recommend 5 of Lorac's products to somebody who hasn't used them (aside from a little trio of eyeshadow), what would you suggest? I'm expanding my makeup collection, and would love to hear from the creator herself!
[–]glamodoOfficial Glamodo 27 points 2 days ago
I'd recommend the following for you to try:
•POREfection® Complexion franchise
•TANtalizer® Baked Bronzer
•Alter Ego Lipstick and Lip Gloss
[–]elombardi 9 points 2 days ago
What is your current favourite makeup product?
[–]glamodoOfficial Glamodo -108 points 2 days ago
My all time favorite is the PRO Palette. My current favorite and new obsession is the PRO Contour Palette that comes with a PRO Contour brush!
This definitely made me look at Lorac in a different light tbh. These are all of the questions she "answered" and only 3 of them are actually relevant to the question/not just shilling Lorac products. Some of them are really, really blatantly PR answers (Asking for advice gets a "Yes!"?). Favorite AMAs? Channing Tatum is my new fave though apparently the AMA days aren't as good anymore...
-August Alsina is basically campaigning to be the next Calvin Klevin model.
OMFG AT EVERYTHINGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG
- Just in time for the 4th, @DETAILS Magazine complied a part eulogize, part how-to guide in honor of bro/frat culture!
- According to DETAILS, celebrity bros include Channing Tatum, Barack Obama, and ONTD fav Chris Evans!
- The fascinated piece outlines staples of bro culture including wearing baseball caps backwards, being outdoorsy, "having horrible taste in music," being into sports, and drinking heavily. [What about the thinly-veiled homoeroticism, @DETAILS?]
- The article also warns that this summer may be your last chance to be a bro, as frat "culture solidly in decline."
Paraphrased from @DETAILS. Picture from their site.
ONTD: Were you ever a bro? What was your style of dress/social identifier in high school/college?
chantalkrev: Song sounds killer... Thank you @britneyspears - such an honor and an honour.
Part of her resume includes working with artists such as Avril Lavigne, Gwen Stefani, and Kelly Clarkson.

Is 2015 the best year in music since 2010? I say, yes! There have been so many oustanding releases in the first half of 2015 it's actually crazy!
I already covered Q1, but the year has really taken off with Q2 (April*-June)!
What new music has even been released? is this the best year for music ever? Who will save us from this wasteland where even BadGalRiri isn't churning out the hits?
Luckily for us, the answer is: SO MANY PEOPLE!
Here are 10 albums and some singles that you should have been listening to in Q2 of 2015.
Brandon Flowers - The Desired Effect
Brandon Flowers of the Killers released a great album that's perfect for any season. Makes me excited for the fact that he's working on a new The Killers album! Count me as a convert.
Listen to: Can't Deny My Love, I Can Change
My Morning Jacket - The Waterfall
Stoner rockers My Morning Jacket consistently release great work, and this album is a mellow, introspective album that's great to curl up with.
Listen to: Believe, Big Decisions
Jason Derulo - Everything is 4
Modern King of Pop Jason Derulo wrote an album heavy on features, and they all work fantastically well. From Stevie Wonder to Matoma & JLo, this album hits all the right notes.
Listen to: Want To Want You, Cheyenne, Try Me
Florence + The Machine - How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful
Dividing fans, this album is a must listen for 2015. Personally, it's my favourite Florence album-- I am going to be listening to this for ages.
Listen to: Ship to Wreck, Queen of Peace
Jamie XX - In Colour
Tis the season for people from bands to release solo material... If you like the XX, you'll probably like Jamie XX's solo work. A strange mix of DJ-laidbackica, this one is probably going to crop up in end-of-year lists.
Listen to: I Know There's Gonna Be (Good Times)
Adam Lambert - The Original High
With a voice like Adam's, he should be a mega star, and this album should catapult him up the charts. Great songs, Swedish producers, working with Tove Lo... there's nothing to dislike about this album.
Listen to: Evil in the Night, The Light
Giorgio Moroder - Deja Vu
Disco king Giorgio Moroder might not have wowed the critics, but I literally think people just wanted to hate. This album comes together as a fantastic body of work, best experienced from start to finish-- but with a few stand out tracks you'll put on repeat for ages.
Listen to: Diamonds ft. Charli XCX, Wildstar
Meek Mill - Dreams Worth More Than Money
Delayed by probation issues, Meek Mill ended up with a great new set of inspiration for this album-- his trouble with the law and the new lady in his life, a certain Ms. Nicki Minaj.
Listen to: Lord Knows, Bad For You, the entire thing...
Kacey Musgraves - Pageant Material
I'm not usually a country person, but this album is worth the exception. She's not Shania Twaine, but if this is where country is going, I'm on board.
Listen to: Biscuits, Dime Store Cowgirl
The followup to 2012's fantastic Kaleidoscope Dream, this album has a bit of a harder edge mixed in with Miguel's classic sexy rhythm.
Listen to: Coffee, what's normal anyway
Sampling of great singles out in Q2:
How do you discover new music, ONTD? What music have you been listening to in 2015? Did you discover any great albums from past years you'd like to share?
BONUS: What is your most anticipated UPCOMING album for 2015?
Don't forget to subscribe to Spotify, only 99 cents now!
*Due to technical error, my Q1 post covered the April already. #OOP
Please note: Carly Rae Jepsen's "Emotion" (pre-order now!) does not appear as an album on this list because it is not released anywhere except in Japan yet. Look forward to it in my post on Q3! Or go back and check out the Q1 post!
SDCC will be upon us in less than a week. I've been looking carefully at panels you can see if you're lucky enough to have a badge for all 4 days. If not, have no fear! I've been looking at various off site events that you do not need a badge for.
Thursday, July 9th
What a better way to spend Thursday than getting to hear about the creative side of the comics industry from one of the most prominent female writers?
If you're more interested in spending your Thursday indulging in big budget Hollywood, The Hunger Games panel is your best bet. It will be the cast's final appearance at comic con and should be full of new footage from Mockingjay Part 2.
Comic-Con can be educational. Enjoy actual scientists explaining NASA's work and the feasibility of long haul space travel.
Friday, July 10th
Friday is the Hall H day if you want to see Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, and Star Wars...and don't mind spending all day Thursday in line.
Here's some panels that aren't in Hall H:
A panel about women/gender roles and sexuality in fiction that actually features female panelists (thanks, Denver Comic Con), this discussion should cover taboo topics and offer lively dicussion.
Many of us love action movies, but let's be real, Ben Affleck and Chris Hemsworth aren't doing their own stunts. This panel will explore the lives of those who make our favorite movies so entertaining.
How could you miss David Hasselhoff at Comic-Con?
Saturday, July 11th
No Marvel, No1curr
JK. It will be a pretty good day for Hall H if you're in to that.
Don't miss the chance to see the most prolific star of the Marvel Cinematic Universe!
Learn about a new direction for the digital comics medium.
Perhaps the most accurate reflection of Comic-Con itself, witness a debate over the merits of Star Trek vs. Star Wars.
Sunday, July 12th
Sunday is shopping day, but there are panels too!
Whether you think Marvel is making progress with female representation or is problematic™, this panel was very good last year and features strong women responsible for bringing the new Ms. Marvel to page.
See your Ryan Murphy faves at this joint panel form American Horror Story: Hotel and Scream Queens. At press time, Lady Gaga won't be present :(
Fox is pulling out the stops. Scream Queens has its own vertical drop ride complete with sorority girls and fraternity boyfriends right inside Petco park. They're also giving out Scream Queens Ice Cream from carts randomly throughout the Gaslamp. Follow @ScreamQueens to find them. Gotham is handing out free Penguin glasses, again randomly throughout the Gaslamp. They're doing an X-Files find the X twitter game. FX will also be there promoting Fargo and Kurt Sutter's new show, The Bastard Executioner. There will be an Always Sunny sunscreen station for the melanin challenged.
Adult Swim had my favorite off-site events last year with their fun house. Right on the Green by the Shuttle Stop, they are offering a FREE carnival for those willing to stand in line. They also have the Meatwad Fulldome Experience. You can RSVP at their website that I've conveniently linked below.
Comedy Central is having their own #ComedyCentralCon at The San Diego Wine & Culinary Center, across from the Convention Center. It will feature mini golf, gif photo makers, signings, and giveaways.
Hello Kitty will have a food truck at Comic Con! It will feature cupcakes, macaroons, etc.
Nerd HQ will be at the San Diego Children's Museum. There will also be lots of stuff at Petco Park.
Myself, who used to own a bike and took a long time to make this very interesting and informative post.
Earlier this week, Fox New's Geraldo Rivera claimed that Kendrick' Lamar's BET Awards performance (which I strongly recommend that everyone watch here) of his new single 'Alright' (on iTunes now) was "more damaging to black people than racism." To that, Kendrick responded in an interview with banned source.
“This is our music. This is us expressing ourselves. Rather than going out here and doing the murders myself, I want to express myself in a positive light the same way other artists are doing. Not going out in the streets, go in the booth and talking about the situation and hoping these kids can find some type of influence on it in a positive manner. Coming from these streets and coming from these neighborhoods, we’re taking our talents and putting ’em inside the studio.”
Eloquent as always.

For Thursday, July 2, 2015:
