The Scoop Behind Ciara's VMAs Hair

8/28/2013 3:00pm EDT
Ciara
Ciara donned a stunning Givenchy Couture 2013 to the MTV Video Music Awards and even celebrity hairstylist Cesar Ramirez, was stunned by how perfectly the dress fit the singer. The hair look he crafted for the event was intended to accentuate this beautiful sheer piece.

He says, “Going into fall, we wanted something sultrier but we definitely wanted to keep our rock and roll edge.” Going dark and longer accomplished that. For the VMA’s look, Cesar drew inspiration from the gow...

The R&B songstress hailing from Atlanta, Georgia is back again slamming us with her fifth album since her debut back in 2004. I am talking about none other than the “Goodies” singer, herself!

Female Celebrities That Have Not Given Into The Big Booty Craze

Rihanna
Opinion: Television personalities, female-rappers, and video vixens love toting around big derrieres.  This trend seems to have grown, no pun intended, tremendously in the last 10 years as rap music and their videos have become more popular and quite famous for advertising "big-booty" girls.  While some women have injected, implanted, and padded their average or flat-in-the-back frames, others seem to be staying true to their microscopic behinds.

On Tuesday, Mediatakeout.com, released a video of Rihanna twerking--a dance that women perform to make their butts jiggle.  The singer doesn't le...

I'm not sure what to call Ciara's outfit. Is it a t-shirt on top of a pillow case on top of a dress shirt? This is apparently from Givenchy’s Spring 2013 Menswear Collection, but we don't think any guy could pul...
