Giuseppe Zanotti Snags Beyonce For Collaboration Shoe

Giuseppe and the ring leader of the Beyhive team up for a special shoe collaboration.

As if Mrs. Carter couldn't get anymore glamorous, the self-proclaimed diva is set to collaborate with luxury show designer Giuseppe Zanotti for an exclusive shoe with the Yonce stamp of approval. And for a chick that does full out dance routines in 6 inch heels for a living this is definitely expected.

Just yesterday (Mar. 20), Zanotti told Forbes.com in an interview, "I'm doing a show with Beyonce right now. Beyonce has very clear ideas – she knows exactly what she wants. The thing which she then also has over other celebrities, is that she has an amazing voice. She's incredibly talented and she's an amazing dancer – she's complete. Few are like Beyonce."

Apparently, the Beyhive aren't the only ones fawning over Yonce's likeliness these days. Zanotti has partnered with the superstar's stylist, Ty Hunter, to create the shoe, which is said to be an exclusive platform stiletto. Sure to cost some major coins, the collaboration is set to be released in the next week or two.

Vixens, are you here for this collaboration?

Alicia Keys Brings Love To Cryptic Visions With New Single "Show Me Love"

"I’m loving that we’re doing this together it’s been a minute," Alicia Keys said to a packed crowd at the Dolby Soho studio in New York Monday night (Sept. 16). Adoring fans and close friends were invited to a visual sonic installation for her new single, "Show Me Love" featuring Miguel. Soft but sensual, Keys keeps the desires of love fresh and melodic. "I’m not sure what was taking so long but the wait is over."

The artistic visual for "Show Me Love" includes three parties exuding variations of love. Actress Zoë Saldana and husband Marco Perego Saldana represent love's ups and downs. Next is Michael B. Jordan, who pushes through hard rainfall, a comparison to the journey to self-love. Finally, we have Alicia and Miguel, who showcase elements of love absorbed through art and collaboration. Directed by Cara Stricker, all moments (which were only shot for seven seconds) hold the message of Keys' demand to well, show love.

At Dolby Soho, fans got to view the video on wall to wall projections as well as curved canvases that offered a 360 vision of the music video. They were also treated to an intimate performance by Keys and Miguel. Keys also performed some of her biggest hits like "Diary," "Sleeping With A Broken Heart," "NY State of Mind," with Miguel performing "Skywalker."

With the singer releasing her seventh studio album soon, Keys is thinking in, out, and around the box when it comes to her new music.

“I have been on this journey to be more vulnerable; in my life, in my music; and this new visual experience reflects this time," Keys said in a statement to VIBE. "Show Me Love" displays different expressions of love, the journey of it, the push and pull, the struggle and the eventual joy and peace."

Written and produced by Keys, the single also credits Tory Lanez and Morgan Matthews as producers. 

The installation is located at 477 Broadway and will be open to the public from Wednesday, Sept.18-Sunday, Sept 22.

Keys will perform the song next during her headlining set at this year’s iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas on Saturday, September 21 and then a set at New York’s Global Citizen Festival in Central Park on Saturday, September 28.

Rico Nasty And Kali Uchis Join Bad Bunny As Performers For 2nd Annual Pornhub Awards

Pornhub has turned things up a notch for their second annual awards show with performances from Bad Bunny, Kali Uchis, Rico Nasty and Tommy Genesis.

The celebration of the adult film industry will also welcome Benny Blanco as Musical Director and British Art Director and graphic designer Peter Savill for the redesign of the show's statue. Last year's inaugural show proved to be a learning lesson for the company. Kanye West's presence attracted most the attention, with everything else including the show's presentation falling to the wayside. The rapper/producer performed last year with Teyana Taylor and also performed his single "I Like It" without Lil Pump (he was arrested at the time for violating his probation).

But with creative daring acts like Rico, Bad Bunny and Kali, the show might be visually stimulating for fans–musically speaking. Benito was previously announced as a performer last month. “Last year, we made history and we’re building on that momentum,” Pornhub's vice president Corey Price told Forbes. “No other awards show has ever even attempted to do what we do.”

The show will compete with the Adult Video News Awards — or AVNs — which honor stars in the adult film industry. Price is hoping to reach its very diverse audience with their selection of performers.

“We’re very excited to announce the additions of several creatives to the 2nd Annual Pornhub Awards Show. Peter Saville is absolutely legendary, having had some prolific output that has gone on to inspire entire generations of creatives,” Price tells VIBE. “We couldn’t be more thrilled to have Ian Isiah, Kali Uchis, Rico Nasty and Tommy Genesis take the stage with Bad Bunny on October 11th. We are so lucky to have such complementary talents entertaining for us on our big night. ”

The show will take place at the Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles. Categories include: Most Popular Female Performer, Most Popular Male Performer, Most Popular Verified Amateur, Top Channel, Top BBW Performer (c' mon diversity), Top Fetish Performer, Most Popular Gay Performer, Most Popular Network and Top Celebrity, among others.

Fans are encouraged to vote for their faves here.

Nicki Minaj Offers Advice To Women In Abusive Relationships

Nicki Minaj took to Twitter over the weekend to address her female fans. In a series of tweets, the MEGATRON artist offered advice to anyone who may be in an abusive relationship.

When u see a woman in a toxic relationship, rather than laugh & say mean things, try to offer sound advice from your heart & root for her to learn her worth. We’ve all been there. I saw my parents fight & argue non stop & never divorce, so I thought this was normal behavior...

— Mrs. Petty (@NICKIMINAJ) September 1, 2019

It's unknown what caused Sunday's tweets, (Sept. 1)  however, in 2018 Minaj revealed the abuse she witnessed as a child in her Apple Music documentary trailer, as well as two toxic relationships she experienced.

"I remember when my mother would let my father be violent with her, and she always brings up this story as a little girl, I would stand in front of my mother and go like this," she recalled while extending her arms.

Newly engaged to music executive, Kenneth "Zoo" Petty, Minaj re-opened the conversation on domestic violence, self-esteem, and toxic relationships. She offered words of encouragement and advice to those who could be in situations she was once in.

Minaj also provided a checklist of warning signs women shouldn't ignore if present in their relationship.

Dear all of you beautiful souls.

A man who loves you does not:

1. Humiliate you on social media 2. Beat you 3. Cheat on you 4. Call you out of your name/put you down to lower your self esteem due to his own insecurities. 5. Hide his phone, passwords, where abouts, etc.

— Mrs. Petty (@NICKIMINAJ) September 1, 2019

The "Hot Girl Summer" collaborator also advised that loving yourself should be your top priority, not attaining a relationship goal.

I remember being so afraid to speak cuz I never knew when that person would be in a particular mood and I could maybe say one wrong thing that would get me hit. So the diff you see in me now is that feeling when a woman feels lifted up, safe, appreciated & unconditionally loved.

— Mrs. Petty (@NICKIMINAJ) September 1, 2019

But I first had to learn how to love MYSELF. 🙏🏾 if you wouldn’t let a man treat your mother, your sister or best friend like that b/c you LOVE them, then you wouldn’t let a man treat YOU like that b/c you love YOU. This isn’t about judging. We judge too much. Lift them up. 🙏🏾

Although the 36-year-old never revealed who her abusers were, the Barbz surmised Meek Mill and Love and Hip-Hop star Safaree Samuels as her two alleged abusers.
