Harper’s Bazaar China recently put Rihanna on the cover of their August issue. Normally Rihanna + ____ is a reliable equation for guaranteed success. Except Harper’s Bazaar China recently learned that Rihanna + Elements of Chinese Culture equals anger and cultural appropriation accusations from the internet.
We all watched the messy train wreck that happened when Kim Kardashian trademarked the word Kimono for her brand of shapewear. Kim tried to shut up the haters who accused her of cultural appropriation, but it wasn’t enough. Eventually the mayor of Kyoto got involved, and she was forced to change the name. Kim recently did some major damage control for her shapewear brand by way of an interview with the Wall Street Journal (via People). Say goodbye to Kimono, and hello to the generic-sounding Solutionwear.
Taylor Swift Is Involved In A Very Messy Fight With Justin Bieber’s Manager Scooter Braun Over Her Music

Yesterday, Sephora closed their 400 US stores for one hour so staff could get some much-needed diversity training after SZA called out a store in Calabasas for racial profiling. SZA claimed an employee called security to make sure she wasn’t stealing anything. It sounds like those diversity day pamphlets weren’t printed off a moment too soon. Because Leslie Jones recently slapped at another Sephora location for allegedly treating her makeup artist like crap.
