Helmed by Italo Zuchelli, Calvin Klein seems to be courting the rap world. The luxury brand recently created custom looks for Drake’s Would You Like A Tour tour wardrobe, and this weekend, the “The Daily Mail” spotted Atlanta’s power couple Future and Ciara front row in matching all-black ensembles at the Calvin Klein menswear show at Milan’s Fashion Week. Future debuted ombre dyed blonde dreads, while a pregnant and chic Ciara hid her baby bump.

And some bonus Emilia Clarke on the red carpet:
Emilia looked gorgeous, imo. I'm excited for the SAGs this weekend since they're nominated and more of the cast should be going.
I can't believe it's been 15 yrs since 'Baby One More Time' came out! It's because of u that I'm able to do what I love! Xo!— Britney Spears (@britneyspears) January 12, 2014
Fifteen years ago, Britney Spears released her star-making debut album...Baby One More Time, cementing her status a pop superstar. The then-17-year-old not only ushered in a new wave of enthusiasm for pop music, but also shaped the way a generation of tween and teen girls looked, danced and expressed themselves.
It not only included the classic breakthrough single "...Baby One More Time" but also gems like "(You Drive Me) Crazy," "Sometimes" and, of course, "E-Mail My Heart." To celebrate the landmark occasion of the album's release, MTV News is looking back on the 15 (5) ways the album — and Spears — changed the game.
Schools across the country had to enforce the rules a little harder after Spears rocked the sexiest school girl uniform in the history of music videos.
She gave us the first fan armies. Were you Team Britney or Team Xtina?
She made soda cool again. Between "Soda Pop" and serving it in her "(You Drive Me) Crazy" video, we were just plain thirsty.
We all asked our moms to get our navels pierced thanks to Brit. Most, thankfully, said "no."
She was the every girl: Throughout ...Baby One More Time, she looked like us all in our denim skirts and platform sandals.

Michael Douglas has stepped into some of the biggest--or should that be tiniest?--shoes of his career.
The two-time Academy Award-winning actor will join director Edgar Wright and Paul Rudd in Marvel's "Ant-Man," hitting theaters July 31, 2015.
"With Hank Pym's rich history in the Marvel Universe, we knew we needed an actor capable of bringing the weight and stature to the role that the character deserves," said Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige. "We felt incredibly relieved when Michael Douglas agreed to step into the part with the charm and fortitude he brings to every character he inhabits, and couldn't be more excited to see what he will do to bring Hank Pym to life."
The legendary actor, who earned an Academy Award in the category of Best Actor in a Leading Role for his iconic portrayal of Gordon Gecko in "Wall Street," has also starred in numerous modern classics including "Basic Instinct,""Fatal Attraction,""The Game,""Wonder Boys,""Traffic" and many more. In addition to acting, Douglas has also served as Producer and Executive Producer on a number of films including "Romancing the Stone," John Carpenter's "Starman" and "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest," for which he also won an Academy Award for Best Picture. Most recently, Douglas earned a Golden Globe and his first Primetime Emmy Award for his role as legendary entertainer Liberace in the HBO original film "Behind the Candelabra."
Douglas will star as Hank Pym, who first appeared in TALES TO ASTONISH #27 (Jan. 1962), with Rudd starring as Scott Lang in the film.
On Friday, after Hilary Duff announced her separation from her husband Mike Comrie, Aaron Carter followed her on Twitter. He then went on to message and follow a Hilary stan and explain to him that he wants Hilary back.
Aaron's tweet after Hilary announced her separation:
The stan went on to message Aaron after his tweet and said"Hilary is not going to get back with you", that tweet has since been deleted, which caused the former E! reality star to send the stan this message:
Aaron then went on to send the stan these other messages about his feelings on Hilary:
Aaron, can you play with fire?
For Sunday, January 12, 2014:
While listening to NPR last night (yes, black folks listen to NPR) I heard this little gem; “There were no black artists with number one singles in 2013.”
While fools were arguing over who was the king of NYC last year, black artists were no where to be seen at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 charts for the first time since the company began charting top 40 singles in 1958. “How is this possible?” You may ask. Jay Z, Kanye West, Beyoncé, Pusha T and Drake all dropped albums in 2013 but none of them were able to get a top single. Furthermore, of the 52 weeks in a year, white artists were on top of the R&B and hip hop charts for 44 of them and blue eyed soul reigned supreme.
Is this what post-racial America looks like? Muthafuckas never loved us? Remember? But they always loved our music, and now we don’t even have that anymore. What’s next? An all white NBA draft?
But seriously, is this the future of hip hop and R&B? Will it soon be as white-washed as rock ‘n’ roll or punk? As, Keli Goff, author and commentator for The Daily Beast and The Root, explains “It almost reminds me of the ’50s and ’60s when you had a lot of music that was being made by white artists and being popularized by them but it was coming from black artists. It’s much easier to sell a Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, an Eminem, a Justin Timberlake, to mainstream audiences than it is to sell a Jay Z. It is still a preferred feeling in mainstream pop culture that if we can find an attractive white act to do it, why not?”
Is Justin Timberlake the new Elvis? Do kids these days even know about Chuck Berry and Bad Brains? Will our kids know Afrika Bambaataa and Run DMC? Is hip hop as we know it DEAD??
Probably not, but here are some rational explanations:
Pop chart analyst and Slate writer, Chris Molanphy says the problem arose when Billboard started using digital sales to compile its charts; “What’s happened is, whether it’s radio, whether it’s iTunes — there’s now a lot of data feeding into the Hot 100…. The charts of ten years ago when Outkast was No. 1 — iTunes was not a factor in the charts yet because it was brand new. There was no YouTube — it literally didn’t exist — and so this great feedback loop we used to have where we had crossover from the R&B charts to the pop charts has kind of gotten swamped.” As Molanphy points out, “It’s a huge pendulum swing in less than a decade: In 2004, literally every song that topped the Hot 100 was by a person of color. This year, black artists had only featured roles.”
Essentially the playing field has been broadened enormously since Billboard started changing the way they chart singles. What this means, is that since the incorporation of digital sales, R&B and hip hop acts can’t compete in their own genres.
One could argue that not every Justin Timberlake song is R&B, but Billboard no longer looks at it that way, instead of compiling charts based off of what the R&B audience is listening to, they’re including an artists entire album into the mix. Only the future will tell if this trend will continue but one thing is for certain, artists of color are going to have to work a lot harder if they want to keep their chart stats up.
In another blow to musicians of color, not a single living black artist is being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this year for only the second time in the history of the Hall.
Not that there wasn’t an abundance of black artists to choose from, including Nile Rogers, who has garnered 8 nominations and rocked on one of the biggest tracks of the year; Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky.” However, as Molanphy again points out, “this year the Hall will induct Daryl Hall and John Oates—an act with a long history of soul-music appreciation that once even topped the R&B chart—so Rock Hall voters are honoring the sound of black music. Just not actual black people.”
Is the idea of a post-racial America eliminating race from the equation all together? The short answer is yes. Unfortunately, when people start touting the idea of living in a colorblind society, color begins to disappear in ways that are problematic. Goff brings up the point that; “Often people pride themselves on being color blind…and often when people use that language what ends up happening is the color disappears, from the equation, from the conversation, from the room.”
As Goff expresses; “We shouldn’t have to not see each others color, we should be able to see each others color and not have that be a problem.”
Honestly 2013 kinda sucked for music. I have high hopes for 2014...
The ACN News Night team is coming back for a third and final season.
HBO has officially renewed the Jeff Daniels drama for a final installment, which is expected to air this fall. The news comes nearly six months after HBO programming president Michael Lombardo noted publicly that he'd be "shocked" if the series didn't return. The hold-up has been creator Aaron Sorkin, who needed to pen the Steve Jobs film script before turning his attention back to Newsroom.
Joining Sorkin and executive producers Alan Poul and Scott Rudin for Newsroom’s third season is Paul Lieberstein. The former showrunner of (and actor on) The Office, a Sorkin favorite, will come aboard as an executive producer on the HBO series. The trio has been meeting in recent weeks to map out what’s next for the show, with production set to commence this spring. The cast was locked into new deals in September, which explains Emmy-winning star Jeff Daniels’ much-covered tweet about a third season.
Newsroom joins two other HBO dramas, True Blood and Boardwalk Empire, set to end their runs later this year. In preparation, HBO is readying a collection of new series, including Damon Lindelof drama The Leftovers, Mike Judge comedy Silicon Valley and anthology series True Detective.

Katy Perry is one flexible lady!
The "Dark Horse" singer Instagrammed a picture of herself doing the splits on the Great Wall of China on Sunday, Jan. 12. John Mayer's love, wearing a bamboo hat, joked from halfway around the world that she was #bestdressed at the 2014 Golden Globes in L.A.
The 29-year-old singer switched up her outfits numerous times during the show and sang some of her biggest hits, including “Roar,” “Teenage Dream,” “Unconditionally,” “Part of Me” and “Firework.”
“FERRAS,” Katy recently tweeted. “It’s a verb and an adjective. A noun and a pronoun.”
Marisa Tomei and Josh Radnor might just be friends. I mean grabbing a drink from a juice bar together in the morning doesn't necessarily smack of romance. However, I'm going to suggest the
slovenly casual dress belies a comfort level that suggests these two might actually be more than friends. And yes, it does look like they rolled out of bed together.

mess. but w/e, make those connections girl.
Crystal Reed, Tyler Posey and Dylan O'Brien talk about what to expect this season:
only interesting part is when they say
Beyonce‘s surprise album has sold nearly 1.5 million copies so far, but not everyone is a fan: RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that her over-the-top success has put pal Kanye West in a serious funk. According to an insider close to West, it’s hard for him to watch her album do well because he claims he had the idea to do a visual album first!
“Kanye is feeling really defeated over Beyonce’s album doing so well,” the insider tells Radar.
“He wanted to do a visual album for his ‘Dark Twisted Fantasies’ album, but everyone around him convinced him it wouldn’t work,” the insider explains. “That’s why he ended up doing one long movie to go with it [the 35-minute short film, 'Runaway'].”
Now that the mix of songs and music videos on Beyonce’s album has proved a successful formula, “He’s kind of annoyed, but he doesn’t want to talk about how he came up with the idea first because of how he got slammed for saying he invented leather jogging pants a few years ago. Plus, he needs to stay on good terms with Jay Z.”
Making matters worse, his last album “Yeezus,” has sold fewer than a million copies so far, despite critical acclaim.
So now, says the source, “He’s super-focused on moving forward. He’s working so hard to come up with something that will eclipse Beyonce and put him back on top.”
Baby mama Kim Kardashian “is pushing him to do something major too,” the source says. “He might do something like a huge free concert or a free album to get himself in the headlines again, and for a good reason.”
In the meantime, is he making his irritation public? West and Kardashian were noticeable no-shows at the celeb-studded birthday bash for Beyonce’s mom, Tina Knowles, this weekend.

today’s [January 11th] one-year anniversary of the tragic suicide of Aaron Swartz, director Brian Knappenberger has released this short preview of clips from his much anticipated new documentary about Swartz, the Stop Online Piracy Act and the National Security Administration.
Called “The Internet’s Own Boy,” the film follows Knappenberger’s recent New York Times op-doc about the NSA. It comes out amid three related political developments:
1) the White House may be trying to resurrect SOPA
2) there is a new bipartisan push for an investigation into the Obama administration’s prosecution of Swartz and
3) Washington is debating the prospect of reforming the NSA.
The movie will be officially released at the Sundance Film Festival on January 20th, in conjunction with the new organizing effort around theupcoming National Day of Action against the NSA on February 11th.
Actress Gemma Arterton explains why she is rethinking her career and taking on a lead role at Shakespeare's Globe's new theatre.
“The Duchess is an intense and oppressive piece and the theatre feels almost like a cage a because the audience is wrapped around you. It’s perfect for the Playhouse.”
This fierce, feminist goddess right here.
After bidding a fond farewell to some of her favorite snacks and calorie-laden meals (think Froot Loops, fried chicken, and mashed potatoes with gravy just for starters), she turned to Weight Watchers' new two-week "Simple Start" plan to slowly ease back into a regular diet and exercise regimen.
"After almost two years of eating pretty much whatever I wanted, I didn't want to feel like I had to totally deprive myself of all the foods I loved, not to mention an occasional glass of wine," Jessica says. "What was so great about this plan was that it wasn't about sacrifice. I was eating real food, there was still room for the occasional indulgence, and I never felt like I was suffering. I lost 8 ½ pounds in the first two weeks and that really got me motivated for the journey ahead."
2. Put tomatoes, pepper, zucchini, onion, garlic, basil, salt, and pepper in pan and spray with nonstick spray; toss to coat. Roast, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are browed and crisp-tender, about 30 minutes.
3. Spray 8- or 10-oz ramekins or custard cups with nonstick spray. Divide vegetables evenly among cups. Make a well in the center of the vegetables and carefully break 1 egg into each cup. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Place cups on baking sheet and bake until eggs are just set, 20 to 25 minutes.
