Forever 21 Put a Great Value Eminem in a Wakanda Forever Sweater [Updated]

On December 18, 2018, in a now swiftly-deleted tweet, Forever 21 thought it was a splendiferous idea to place a Great Value version of Eminem in a Wakanda Forever sweater.

The Fair Isle-style sweater features the fairest of them all—and it can be yours, if you’re willing to waste $34.90 of your hard-earned money. But be forewarned: Buying this garment is the equivalent of not forwarding...

After Backlash, the Oscars Backtrack on the Best Popular Film Category (for Now)

After Backlash, the Oscars Backtrack on the Best Popular Film Category (for Now)

Looks like the Oscars are putting that whole Best Popular Film category idea on ice, at least for the moment. On Thursday, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced they would not be introducing the new category this year because of the “challenges” posed to films that have already been released.

“The Academy recognized that implementing any new award nine months into the year...

Wakanda Stole the Show at This Year’s MTV Movie Awards

Wakanda Stole the Show at This Year’s MTV Movie Awards

The world of Wakanda inundated this year’s MTV Movie & TV Awards, and we’re not mad about it at all.

From Tiffany Haddish’s opening sequence, in which she challenges “T’Chadwick Boseman” for the right to rule Wakanda, to Michael B. Jordan’s sharp jab at Roseanne Barr, Black Panther and its cast served us all our favorite moments.

This includes Boseman, while accepting the award for Best Hero,...

Okay, Glow Up gang: It’s officially December, and if you haven’t already, you need to start shopping for the holidays.

Sterling K. Brown Almost Had His Challenge Day as M'Baku in <i>Black Panther</i>, but Ryan Coogler Had Other Ideas

IT’S CHALLENGE DAY—Well, it was for Sterling K. Brown. Almost.

The This Is Us actor chatted with Variety and gave insight into how he became N’Jobu in Black Panther, particularly pointing out how he originally auditioned for M’Baku. As we know, the part of T’Challa’s (Chadwick Boseman) challenger eventually went to the bombastic brick house known as Winston Duke, but Sterling had his eyes on...

African, American: Danai Gurira Hits Home with Her Latest Play, <i>Familiar </i>

An elegantly appointed middle class living room in Minnesota, punctuated with poinsettias and a wreath to celebrate the holidays—plus the rare (and oft-disappearing) piece of African art. Frankly, it could’ve been my childhood home in the same Midwestern state, but instead, it is the setting of Danai Gurira’s Familiar, an emotional family dramedy that explores the impact and importance of...

Michael B. Jordan Takes the Lead in New Warner Bros. Diversity and Inclusion Initiative

Michael B. Jordan Takes the Lead in New Warner Bros. Diversity and Inclusion Initiative

The last two years have shown Hollywood that diversity in front of and behind the camera pays major dividends, both in quality and box office receipts. No surprise, then, when Warner Bros. launched a new policy aimed at bringing more underrepresented talent into their productions—and they’re tapping one of Hollywood’s top leading men, Michael B. Jordan, as a partner.

'Hey, Auntie': Michael B. Jordan Just Became Coach's New Campaign Star

Whether you call him Michael “Bae” Jordan, Michael “Jailbait” Jordan or Michael “You remind me of my little brother” Jordan *raises hand*, there’s no denying that since his breakout role in Fruitvale Station, Michael B. Jordan has become one to watch (bonus points if you remember him from nighttime drama Parenthood). And with his very buff turns in 2015's Oscar-nominated Creed and this year’s...

Who doesn’t love Halloween? Okay, plenty of people—including The Root’s beloved editor-in-chief, Danielle Belton (she doesn’t like being scared).

Remember when Forrest Gump said, “Sorry for ruining your Black Panther party” at the end of one of the most hilarious scenes of his titular film? Well, that line wouldn’t be uttered at Oprah’s party, because her party (for the film, not the organization) was apparently perfect.

As Vulture reported, Oprah hosted an exclusive party to honor Black Panther’s Golden Globe nominations . The billion...

Oscar-Nominated Costume Design Legend Ruth E. Carter Gets Her Flowers During New York Fashion Week Event

What makes an icon? Is it longevity? Passion? An impressive and unmatched body of work? If so, Ruth E. Carter exemplifies all of its characteristics and then some.
