Attention all BARBZ, near and far! Sound the trumpets, ring the alarm and bow down to Her Minajesty! *bows down* For she hath arrived and she comes bearing gifts. (OK, it’s actually just one gift, but there are so many gifts inside this gift that it’s more like a Russian nesting doll of gifts.) Finally, after months of sneak peeks and Instagrammed stills, the FULL commercial for Nicki Minaj’s newest fragrance, Minajesty, is HERE! *throws confetti* Minaj debuted the 30-second spot last night and, as expected, it’s “gag century” (translation: amazing).
We first see our queen in the forest, wearing that now-familiar voluminous pink gown, a huge head of hair and RULL heavy looking chain-link jewelry. Behind Ms. Minaj, who holds a dove, is a super-stately looking white horse that could also maybe be a unicorn? There’s no obvious horn to be seen, but I mean, just look at the mist in that forest. Magic is happening, people. And where magic happens, unicorns will soon follow. At least that’s what the stories tell me.
Well, with Miley: The Movement coming to screens in two days (#YAAAS), we figured we should take a look back Miley Cyrus' changes throughout her career and, what better way than through her hair? It's hard to imagine there was ever a time when she didn't have her iconic short 'do, but there was. Oh, how there was. She may only be 20, but she's had a lot of hairstyles. We rounded up the 23 (weird, what a coincidence!) biggest hair changes she's undergone in the past seven years. This Miley Cyrus hair journey will perfectly prepare you for Wednesday: you'll be the resident Miley hair expert wherever you watch, whether with friends, or by yourself in your bedroom (preferable, TBH).

Aww, lil' bb Miley at TRL in 2006. Her hair is long, brown, and curly. What a difference seven years makes, amirite?
You know those days when you tear out everything in your closet, only to end up wearing the very first thing you tried on? Well, if you’re Beyonce, you get to do that with your hair. #JEALLY Not that we blame her, of course. I mean, the woman has essentially dedicated multiple dance moves to the art of dramatic hair-whipping, so it makes total sense that she’d want to bring back the length. Also, she can do whatever she wants because she is the KING/KWEEN and we would bow down on bended knee regardless of her ‘do. (But TBH, her head rolls just would not be the same with a pixie, AMIRITE? Althooough, she would be a lot less likely to get her curls stuck in a fan. Just sayin’. #SAFETYFIRST)
We knew we had to honor the end of Breaking Bad and what better way to do it than with nail art? Especially after we stumbled upon these INSANE BB nails complete with mini meth crystals in Walt's signature blue. Unsurprisingly, there are a lot of other ah-may-zing Breaking Bad-inspired designs out there, so we rounded them up to ease the pain of having to fill your Sunday nights with a new TV show.
Screenshots of Justin Bieber's The Key Fragrance app.

Just when you thought it was quiet out in the beauty/style space for Justin Bieber (well, save that very relaxed adidas NEO campaign and Zach Galifinakis ragging on his hairstyles), KidRauhl has just reinvigorated interest in his latest (third) fragrance, The Key. Not with new campaign images or another fancy hotel-set commercial. Nope. He released an app. More specifically, an alarm clock app. For his fragrance. Does this compute?
If you're a little lost, we don't blame you. Sleep and perfumes don't often (ever?) go hand-in-hand. The rationale, we believe, is that the entire fragrance campaign has revolved around the idea of Bieber somehow unlocking your bedroom door (y'know, with The Key) to visit you at night. Whether that's in your dreams or IRL is left ~up to the imagination~.
Ke$ha and multi-colred strands.

Ooo LAWD. It looks like Ke$ha has summoned the sacred essence of Rainbow Brite for her new ‘do, y’all. (CAN I GET A WITNESS?) And TBH, I ain’t mad atcha, girl. I ain’t mad atcha. Not one bit. Would it work for me? Newp. Reason #1: My hair is RULL dark. Reason #2: ROYGBIV is a tough color-combo to match clothes to and I cannot be havin’ my hair throwin’ off my steez. No thx. I’ve spent way too much money binge-shopping online to be forced to ignore multi-colored prints and patterns for fear of the dreaded clash. But I digress.
If you’re like us, your eyes were GLUED to Rihanna's twitter page yesterday afternoon as she engaged in quite the Twitter battle with fellow singer/songwriter, Teyana Taylor. The two threw down in a twitter spat that had the interwebz buzzing, and while the world twatched the ladies hurtle insults at one another, RiRi seized the moment to show off her upcoming fall RiRi Hearts MAC collection. Checkmate, Rihanna.
With just days left until we can get finally our hands on her autumn line, Rihanna teased a ton of snaps of the highly anticipated makeup range on her Instagram. And after seeing these pics, we CANNOT WAIT to get our hands on this stuff. If this collection is anything like her former one—yes, we're STILL obsessing over RiRi Woo—then beauty fans of the world, we are in for a treat!
Zooey Deschanel's 2013 Emmy manicure.

Zooey Deschanel, long-reigning nail art queen of the red carpet, did not disappoint at this year's Emmys (duh). Zooey showed off her mod black-and-white manicure on Instagram, which was done by her long-time mani collaborator, Tom Bachik. Bachik did Zooey's Emmy nails last year, when she paired retro TV nails with a light blue tulle gown.
