• Snoop Dogg Lion recently Instagrammed this photo of himself sporting an impeccable french manicure, which simultaneously leaves me scratching my head, and a bit jealous. The picture currently stands with 29,000+ likes, and 2,900+ comments on the picture sharing social network. Can Snoop bring us back to the basic mani after years of complicated nail art?

• In another eyebrow raising moment, Tia Mowry tasted sister Tamera’s placenta on the season finale of their Style Network reality show. “Tasting Tamera’s encapsulated placenta was very interesting! If you think about it too much, you’re not going to like it, because all you’re going to think about is that you’re consuming placenta. But I was really, really surprised that it tasted pretty good mixed with a little bit of alcohol. It was definitely Tamera paying me back for making her taste my breast milk. I tasted my own breast milk and I still think my breast milk was sweeter than Tamera’s placenta!”  she said of the experience. Brave girl, very brave! (Necole Bitchie)
