In Manchester, Ariana Grande Discovers The Generation Of Love
Huffington Post - 9 months
Sunday night, Ariana Grande returned to the stage for the first time since a suicide bomber murdered 22 people outside her Manchester Arena concert on May 22. Yesterday, “One Love Manchester” was held at the English city’s Old Trafford Cricket Ground as a benefit for the British Red Cross; the star-studded gig focused less on soliciting donations than celebrating the lives of those who were killed in last month’s horrible terror attack. In front of a crowd of 50,000, Gen-X stalwarts Coldplay, Take That, Black Eyed Peas, and Pharrell Williams sang alongside millennials to show us that current pop songs can bear the weight of our turbulent times as handily as tunes of the past have done. The baton of global responsibility passed from one generation to the next in a meaningful display of talent, resilience and symbolism as Justin Bieber played “Love Yourself” on guitar while assuring the crowd that “God is in the midst” of both tragedy and triumph; Katy Perry empowered the audience ...

Huffington Post - over 2 years
Which famous figures are having the largest influence on baby names right now? The most important baby name influencers are a mix of actors, writers, sports stars, musicians and historical figures. They all share a heroic image that inspires parents and their young namesakes. Here, based on their names’ standings in the current U.S. list of most popular names, are the biggest baby name influencers of our time: Liam (Neeson) The widespread use of the second most popular boys’ name Liam can be directly tied to the ascendance of action hero star Liam Neeson.

Sarah Tetteh: Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow: Why Beyonce Can't Live Without Her Lucky Weave
Huffington Post - over 4 years
She's made millions by whipping her hair back and fourth more times than Will Smith's daughter. Now the world's watching to see what Beyonce's barnet will do next. While her hubby Jay-Z was in the States watching Blue Ivy, it was left to Beyonce to come over and single-handedly rule Britannia with her killer set at the V Festival. But rather than her clever vocals and booty-shaking dance moves, all eyes were on what hair she'd be wearing - after flying over with a suitcase full of extensions and stylists to work some magic. Just one week after she did a Jessie J and shaved off her locks - the weave was back. And it was all in the name of business. A huge part of Bey's stage act is flicking her hair and rolling her head around for the 'dutty wine' dance in Baby Boy. If you thought the magic was in her weave you were right. I'm afraid the concert affect wouldn't have been the same with the cropped do. She'd need to start all over again with the choreogra...
