Kylie Jenner Posts Controversial Picture
While the Kardashian/Jenner clan enjoyed a pleasant Easter at Mass followed by a family day, Kylie Jenner suffered some scrutiny stemming from a picture she had posted on Instagram this weekend.
In the photo, 17-year-old Jenner is posing in an Avatar-like setting for what seems like a photo shoot or campaign of some kind. Fans accused the youngest Kardashian of having blackface in the photo. One critic included 18-year-old Zendaya who previously defended herself against comments made about her dreadlocks during the Fashion Police segment of the 2015 Oscars.
Jenner told her fans to calm down and wrote, “This is a black light and neon lights people lets all calm down.”
Zendaya responded on Twitter, “At first I saw more of an avatar look but thank y’all for keepin me on point….we all gotta stay aware of what image we project #lessons.”
Rihanna’s NCAA Performance
During the college basketball tournament in Indianapolis this weekend, Rihanna gave her fans the chance to listen to brand new music, including “American Oxygen.” Her new lyrics weren’t the only thing on the Barbados singer’s mind, though. After her performance, which had the entire crowd on its feet, Rihanna took the opportunity to voice her opinion about the recent political developments in Indiana regarding the Religious Freedom Restoration Act.
Rihanna yelled through the mic, “Who’s feeling these new bullsh—t laws that they’re trying to pass over here? I say f—k that s—t. We’re just living our motherf—cking lives, Indiana.”
Rihanna isn’t the first to voice her opinion on the new legislation. Andy Cohen, Miley Cyrus and Sam Ronson are just a few of the handful of celebrities who have shared their thoughts regarding Indiana’s governor, Mike Pence.
Mariah and Nick Cannon Reunite
For the sake of dem babies, Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon reunited over the weekend in Easter spirit. Carey, who is reportedly in the early stages of filing for divorce from her husband of eight years, Nick Cannon, shared fun-loving pictures on Instagram.
“Happy Easter!!! #ontheegghunt #NYiswild,” shared the 45-year-old.
Cannon and Carey share twins Moraccan and Monroe, who will turn four on April 30.
Kaley Cuoco Adresses Divorce Rumors
Let the haters hate, according to Kaley Cuoco Sweeting. The Big Bang Theory star, 29, shared Easter joy this weekend on Instagram. The blonde beauty shared an intimate photo of her and husband of one year, Ryan Sweeting.
The actress and professional tennis player have been fighting off divorce rumors nearly since they tied the knot on New Years Eve last year.
Cuoco-Sweeting captioned the pic, “We are totally getting divorced, can’t you tell!?! 4 weeks apart and finally reunited – I missed this guy more than anything !! #rumors #notpregnant #totally married.”
She continued, “I’m so proud of his passion and his inner strength to fight back, but most of all I am proud to be his wife. So all of you who take it upon yourselves to trash our marriage, daily workings of our relationship and everything in between, go ahead and keep doing it, cause it only makes us stronger – if you were smart, you would take a look at your own marriage, relationship, job etc, instead of focusing on someone else’s. You might be surprised at what you find. ‘You know my name, not my story.’”
