10 Baddies Over 35 Slaying Your Faves

Vibe-Vixen-Halle-Berry-Over-35-1

Are we tired of the infamous #bowdown yet? Well, bow down, give a standing ovation, round of applause or a quick head nod to the baddest chicks in the game over 35. During the 2013 BET Awards we noticed a trend. This is no shade to the lovely ladies in their 20s and early 30s (we love y’all too!), but the 35+ crew continuously slays women 10 years their junior. Everybody can’t still look 25 when they’re 42, yet Nia Long manages to do it. To all the ladies in the place with style and grace, we pay homage. Thirty-five and older and still giving us something to look at. Effortlessly. —Bené Viera

Stacey Dash, 46

We don’t know a hotter Republican. Political commentary aside, Stacey is so bad she’ll take your man and send him home to you when she’s done. Not that anyone forgot, but Stacey Dash in KING magazine, y’all. Yes, that cover! Honey will have you giving your man a free pass so you can watch. We kid, we kid…maybe.

Nia Long, 42

We’ve actually exchanged playful, but real words with girlfriends over who gets to have Nia Long as a girl crush. As much as we want Nia for ourselves, we don’t want to live in a world where she isn’t everyone’s girl crush. Yes, Nia’s that bad. Since Love Jones and Best Man, Nia’s been serving flawlessness. Fully pregnant, the shorthaired goddess regally graced the cover of Ebony. There aren’t enough words for Nia’s perfection. All truth, no hype.

Gabrielle Union, 40

Gabrielle Union, 40 Gabby’s flawless skin and toned body is taking no prisoners, and playing no games. Her glowing skin can be attributed to her skin care regimen, but the rest is genetics. We’re sure her beau Dwayne Wade, 31, has no complaints. Look at her! Would you?

Halle Berry, 47

“Girl why you never ready? For as long as you took you better look like Halle Berry.” Jay Z knows what’s up. Halle being fine is inarguable at this point. So let’s just talk about how good she looks pregnant, at 47. Three years shy of 50, pregnant and killing women two decades younger deserves a salute. Kim K. was slammed for her style during pregnancy. All she needed to do was have her people call Halle’s people. Halle’s been rocking maxi dresses and flip-flops during her second pregnancy, and looking red carpet fly doing it.

Erykah Badu, 42

The booty don’t lie. Erykah’s milkshake truly brings all the boys to the yard. Her youthful face, banging body and God-given talent makes the boys (and girls) go nuts. A natural Q.U.E.E.N.

Sanaa Lathan, 41

She’s 41 still looking like Monica from Love and Basketball. Sanaa is the kind of natural beauty who doesn’t need a 32” Malaysian or globs of makeup. Whatever that “thing” is she just has it.

Beyoncé, Rihanna, And J. Lo Make Forbes’ Highest-Paid Women In Music List

As November comes to a close, many publications will be crafting their year-end lists for all things pop culture. Forbes released a ranking of the world's highest-paid women in music on Monday (Nov. 19), with Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez, and Rihanna holding it down for women of color.

Beyoncé comes in at No. 3 on the list with an earning of $60 million as she made most of her money through her historical Coachella performance, the joint album with husband JAY-Z, Everything is Love, and the Carters' On The Run II Tour in support of its release.

Jennifer Lopez made No. 6 for earnings tallying of over $47 million thanks to her lucrative Las Vegas residency, endorsements, and shows including World of Dance where she serves as a judge.

Rihanna follows behind the "Love Don't Cost A Thing" diva at No. 7 with earnings of over $37.5 million. Although she hasn't toured since 2016—thanks to her cosmetics and lingerie lines, Fenty Beauty and Savage Lingerie—the Bajan pop star has been keeping herself busy.

Forbes' annual list (which factors in pretax earnings from June 1, 2017, through June 1, 2018) has placed Katy Perry at the top with over $83 million in profits due to her gig as an American Idol judge and her 80-date Witness: The Tour that brought in an estimated $1 million per night.

Kelly Rowland Hops In Her Bag With New Single "Kelly"

Kelly Rowland has it all and isn't afraid to brag about it on her new single, "Kelly."

Released Thursday (Nov. 22), the singer goes the clubby, confident route while rightfully dropping her attributes like her relationship with God, smoldering looks (a.k.a the drip) among other things. With "Kelly" being the first single since her 2013's Talk a Good Game, the singer comes out swinging, reminding everyone of her power in the game.

The mother of one has promised that her new tunes will be edgier and most honest than her past work that included vulnerable tracks like "Dirty Laundry" and massive hits like "Motivation" and "Commander." Speaking with Vogue over the summer, Ms. Kelly disclosed a few details behind the album.

“It’s about love, loss, and gain and whether it’s professional or with family or whatever, it’s just honest," she said. "I had no choice but to be honest and authentic with this record: it’s about friendship and marriage.”

She also explained a drop in confidence caused her hiatus. “I was thinking about pulling back from recording, but I couldn’t help myself: I still wanted to record. I still felt like I was missing something. The third year just came and left so fast. The fourth year I said: ‘I have to get to work’ and now I’m ready to release some music! I felt like I wasted so much time, and it was my husband who actually called me out on it. He said: ‘Babe, as great as those records were, I think you were nervous, you got gun-shy’, and when he said that it was like boom, a gong went off.”

Glad to have you back, Ms. Kelly. Listen to the eponymous record up top.
