The Fashion Bomb News Breakdown: Lil’ Wayne to Launch A Clothing Line, Woman Will Not Cut Her 22-Inch Nails, Take A Look At Ford Models’s Fall/Winter Promo Video

• America’s favorite promethazine-sipping rapper Lil’ Wayne talks to XXL magazine about “Rebirth,” the clothing line he is currently developing. Of his inspiration to take on such an endeavor, Weezy says: “I just figure that I… I’m funky… I got that from my stylist, Marisa. I’m funky, like she say. I wear a whole buncha items at one time, you know what I mean? I be figuring you at least want one of them items. Like, ‘Damn, I’d love to have that safety pin he got on,’ you know what I mean? Anything. I got on these types of shoes, these shorts, this sweater… A year from now, I want all these items to be mine. Rebirth. I want—I just figure people want to be funky like me, so I got my clothing line.” Articulately put, Mr. Carter. I wonder which of these “whole buncha items” might be featured in his line? Any ideas?

• There’s been lots of talk about the recent mainstream surge in crazy nail trends, but this Atlanta resident has been up on that since 1989.

Having such extremely long nails makes everyday tasks like texting on a cell phone unnecessarily difficult.  Her reason for not snipping her talons? “I can’t stop loving my kids, so how could I stop loving my nails?” The logic: flawless.
