Ciara’s modeling career has really taken off. First, she signed with IMG Models, now, it’s been announced that she’ll be the brand ambassador for Revlon Cosmetics. This is a come full circle moment for the singer, who says she was named after the Revlon fragrance “Ciara” as a gift from her dad to her mom before she was born. As global brand ambassador, she’ll star in cosmetics ads, promote the brand on social media and serve as the face of the brand’s “Choose Love” campaign. In a statement, the Atlanta native revealed that she’s excited about being a part of the campaign because it’s parallel to what was and is happening in her life. As most fans know, she married Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson in July. Continued success to her! Singer John Legend has never  been shy about voicing his opinion, and his political views are no exception. He recently spoke to Music Choice about the 2016 presidential election and feels one candidate in particular is dangerous for the country and the world. He stated, “I think for this election particularly we have seen one candidate that’s really had an entire campaign inspired by hate, division, racism, misogyny and his own narcissism.” Legend is currently promoting his new single “Love Me Now” and is preparing his fifth studio effort due out by the end of the year. While on tour, and in between cities, Anthony Hamilton and The Hamiltones create gospel harmonies of popular phrases of the day, and the group is back to put the latest catch phrase to song: Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s phrase regarding “grabbing women by the pu**y.” The video includes a disclaimer which states, “The  video you’re about to see is not to offend or degrade women. We feel like this: Vote for Hilary Clinton.” Ironically, the video was filmed on a tour bus. One similar to the one shown in the 2005 Trump video where the offensive words were heard around the world. It’s actually quite hilarious. Earlier this year, Janet Jackson fans created a video #InductJanet, in support of the superstar songstress getting inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Now, the social media movement has picked up steam as Jackson has been nominated for the 2017 Induction ceremony. Chaka Khan, Tupac and the disco/funk band Chic are also among the nominees for the forthcoming ceremony. Chic has been nominated eleven times, while this is Tupac’s first year. Induction qualification rules state that nominees must have released their first single or album 25 years prior to the year of nomination. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees will be announced in December. The induction ceremony will be held at the Barclay’s Center in New York City in April 2017. Fans can also vote via rockhall.com. Public voting ends on Dec. 5 at 11:59 p.m. EST. Marshall “Emienem” Mathers is back. Eminem revealed to his 20.8 million Twitter followers that he’s working on a new project. He celebrated the announcement with a politically charged track titled “Campaign Speech.” In the song, while comparing himself to Chuck Norris, the Detroit native addresses police brutality. He also mentions San Francisco 49ers quarterback  Colin Kaepernick and Donald Trump. No word on when the project will be released.
