–Sporting a bold, yellow bob-like wig, rising superstar Saweetie landed on the cover of Glamour UK‘s May hair issue.

The “Icy Girl” rapper, who’s of Black and Asian descent, says it took awhile for her to learn to love her natural tresses. “I hated my hair,” she admits. “It’s naturally really kinky and curly. It’s beautiful, but I was a tomboy and was like, ‘I don’t got no time for this.'”

Saweetie says it was her tomboy tendencies that helped teach her to love her hair. “I think just me playing a lot of sports and not having the time to do my hair, and seeing how loud it was, that’s when I really started to appreciate my hair.”

Saweetie believes, like her music, hair is a form of expression. Read the full interview in the Glamour UK May Digital Issue online now.

Janet Jackson celebrated her 56th birthday on Tuesday, May 16, but the picture she snapped with former flame Jermaine Dupri in Las Vegas over the weekend is still very much a topic of discussion. 

Legendary producer Jimmy Jam and his wife, Lisa, attended the star-studded birthday celebration. Taking to IG to share images of a few of the celebs present, Lisa revealed Jackson’s ex Dupri was one of them. 

Of course the blogs and fans ate the photo up, with one suggesting Dupri is “tryna sneak back in.”

–Looks like Chloe Bailey might be dropping some new music soon! The Grammy-nominated singer dropped a few song snippets on Instagram earlier this week, soliciting fans’ opinions on which she should drop next. 

In the 15-minute IG Live video, she refers to the next track as the “third single,” which could mean her debut solo album will be delivered any day.
