There aren’t enough words to explain what Beyonce has done to our lives. Less than 24 hours ago, she dropped her fifth, self-titled album. It comes with 14 songs and 17 videos. The visuals will make you melt. The album dropped today (Friday the 13th), but you’ve already likely replayed it multiple times, already memorized lyrics and already tweeted the lyrics you connect to most.

Below, the 53 quotables you’ll be seeing on status updates for the rest of the year and eternity.

I woke up like dis

I get filthy when that liquor gets into me

You can't fix what you can't see. It’s the soul that needs the surgery

This time I'm gonna take the crown without falling down

Plastic smiles and denial can only take you so far

Are you happy with yourself?

We took a flight at midnight and now my mind can't help but wander

Working 9 to 5, just to stay alive

I know if I'm on to you, you must be on to me. I know if I'm haunting you, you must be haunting me

We be all night, and everything alright

Boy, I'm drinking, I'm sinking on the mic 'til my boy toys

That D'USSÉ is the shit if I do say so myself (Jay Z)

We sex again in the morning, your breasteses is my breakfast (Jay Z)

Foreplay in the foyer (Jay Z)

I kiss you when you lick your lips

You like it wet and so do I

Make sure you clean that. That's the only way to get the flavor

Tell me I'm the problem

mineKnow I'm not the girl you thought you knew and that you wanted

Underneath the pretty face is something complicated

I come with a side of trouble. But I know that's why you're staying

You're not an angel either, but at least I'm trying

I know I drive you crazy, but would you rather that I be a machine

Stop acting so scared. Just do what I tell

Circulate the image every time I come around

Took 45 minutes to get all dressed up. We ain't even gonna make it to this club

Private show with the music blasting

I wish that you were me. So you could feel this feeling

I never broke one promise, and I know when you're not honest

If you keeping your promise, I'm keeping my word

Sometimes I want to walk in your shoes. Do the things that I never ever do

I look damn good. I ain't lost it

 
beyonce-drunk-in-loveDo you wanna roll with a good girl? (Drake)

Stop making a big deal out of the little things

Let's stop holding back on this and let's get carried away

All I'm really asking for is you

Don’t go ghost on me I'mma to go thriller on you (Drake)

I miss feeling on you. I miss everything that’s real about you (Drake)

All them fives need to listen when the 10 is talking (Drake)

I know you think it’s funny that your ex is not a running back, but that nigga came running back (Drake)


YonceBeen dancing on them tables, ain't got no cares, no sorrow

Took a trip to clear my mind. Now I'm even more lost

Been having conversations about breakups and separations

I guess I didn't see myself before you

The laws of the world never stopped us once

I fought for you the hardest. It made me the strongest

My heart beats so damn quick when you say my name

Hold me till I scream for air to breathe

Send all your sins all over me babe, over me

Rock it baby, rock it baby till the water falls down

You ain't right for doing that to me daddy

Hell yeah you the shit. That's why you're my equivalent

You look so comfortable in my skin

Kush & Splendor: 5 CBD Beauty Products That’ll Take Your Self-Care Routine From 0 To 100

Lotions, creams, and salves—oh my! With cannabidiol (CBD) popping up in just about every product you can imagine, the cannabis-infused beauty industry is clearly on the come-up. In fact, analysts predict that the “wellness” movement—as well as the legalization of Mary Jane across the world—will help rake in $25 billion globally in the next 10 years, according to Business Insider. That’s 15 percent of the $167 billion skincare market.

And what better way to up the ante on one’s wellness routine than with all-natural CBD? Just ask Dr. Lana Butner, naturopathic doctor and acupuncturist at NYC’s Modrn Sanctuary, who incorporates CBD in her treatments.

“CBD is a fantastic addition to acupuncture sessions for both its relaxation and anti-inflammatory, pain-relieving effects,” Butner shares with Vixen. “The calming effects of CBD allows for patients to deeply relax into the treatment and really tap into the parasympathetic nervous system, which is responsible for rest, digestion and muscle repair/regeneration.”

She adds that CBD’s pain-relieving effects are “far-reaching,” from muscular and joint pains to migraines and arthritis—and even IBS and indigestion.

The magic lies in CBD’s ability to impact endocannabinoid receptor activity in our bodies. Without getting too wordy, our bodies come equipped with a system called the endocannabinoid system (ECS), which is the HBIC over our sleep, appetite, pain and immune system response. Also known as cannabidiol, CBD teams up with this system to help reduce inflammation and interact with neurotransmitters. According to Healthline, CBD has also been scientifically shown to impact the brain’s receptors for serotonin, the neurotransmitter responsible for regulating our mood and social behavior.

All that said, it’s important to note that not all CBD products are created equal. Many brands cashing in on the green beauty wave use hemp seed oil, sometimes referred to as cannabis sativa seed oil, in place of CBD... which doesn’t make them any less great! Hemp seed oil is actually high in antioxidants, amino acids, and omega-3 and -6 fatty acids—all of which are thebomb.com for your skin.

“It’s generally viewed as a superfood and is great for adding nutritional value to your diet,” Ashley Lewis, co-founder of Fleur Marché, told Well and Good last month. “In terms of skin care, it’s known as a powerful moisturizer and skin softener that doesn’t clog pores or contribute to oily skin.”

However, when companies start marketing CBD and hemp oil as one-in-the-same, that’s when things get a bit tricky.

“The biggest issue is that hemp seed oil and CBD are two totally different compounds that come from different parts of the hemp plant, have different makeups, and different benefits,” Lewis added. “Marketing them as the same thing just isn’t accurate and does a disservice to consumers who are expecting certain benefits that they won’t get from hemp seed oil and who are often paying more for what they think is CBD.”

So if you’re looking to benefit from the perks specifically attributed to CBD, make sure you’re reading labels before buying, and don’t be afraid to ask questions. Hell, ask for a product’s test results, while you’re at it. It never hurts to be sure.

Now that we’ve got that out of the way, are you ready to see what all the hype is about? For this 4/20, we rounded up a few CBD (and hemp!)-infused products to help give your self-care routine a bit of a boost. Looks like your holiday just got that much kushier. You’re welcome!

Note: Data and regulations surrounding CBD and its use are still in development. That said, please don’t take anything written in this post as medical or legal advice, and definitely double check the laws in your state. Also, please do your body a favor and hit up your doctor before trying any new supplements. We’re just tryna look out for you. Okay? Okay. Read on.

Vivica A. Fox Explains Past Hesitance Behind 'Two Can Play That Game' Script

In a new interview with Essence, actress Vivica A. Fox discussed how she initially turned down her role in Two Can Play That Game based on the script. The established entertainer said it's her mission to ensure that black people are positively portrayed onscreen, and noticed the aforementioned film's prose didn't live up to those standards.

"I think the reason why—no I know the reason why—I've been doing this for such a long time is that I fight," Fox said. "When we did Two Can Play That Game, I fought for the way we talked, walked, the way we loved each other." The Set It Off actress continued to state that she consistently declined Two Can Play That Game before signing on to play the lead role. "Because the script, when I first got it, I turned it down three times because it just wasn't a good representation of African-Americans, so I fought them on everything," she noted. "I want to make sure that the images of African-Americans are as positive and as true as they can possibly be."

In 2001, the romantic comedy debuted to fanfare, boasting an all-star cast of Morris Chestnut, Mo'Nique, Anthony Anderson, Bobby Brown, Gabrielle Union, Wendy Raquel Robinson, and more. Directed by Mark Brown (Barbershop, Iverson, How To Be A Player), Fox plays a career driven person named Shante Smith who navigates a curveball when her boyfriend Keith Fenton (Chestnut) cheats on her with a co-worker.

After its release, Two Can Play That Game raked in over $22 million at the box office.

BET To Unveil Edible Billboard For 'Being Mary Jane' Wedding Finale

As Being Mary Jane comes to an end, BET is willing to offer fans a taste of what's to come in the series finale.

The network has enlisted the help of Ayesha Curry, celebrity cook and cookbook author, to create an edible billboard that also doubles as a wedding cake. The sweet treat will commemorate Mary Jane's (played by Gabrielle Union) nuptials in the two-hour series finale.

On April 20 from 1:00 P.M. to 7:00 P.M. at Brooklyn's Atlantic Terminal in New York, fans will be presented with the edible billboard. At the intersection of Ashland Place and Hanson Place, the closer Being Mary Jane enthusiasts get to the billboard the quicker they'll notice that the four-tiered wedding cake is created from individual boxes, each containing a slice of Curry's prized wedding cake.

All fans have to do is pull a box from the billboard, snap a picture for the 'Gram, take a bite and enjoy. Although lovers of the show won't be able to celebrate with Mary Jane herself, biting into a slice of her wedding cake, for free, is the next best thing.

Don't forget to tune into the series finale of Being Mary Jane on Tues. (April 23) at 8/7 c.
