Nicki Minaj is not a woman who easily slides into the roles assigned to women in her industry or elsewhere. She’s not polished, she’s not concerned with her reputation, and she’s certainly not fighting for equality among mainstream second-wave feminists. She’s something else, and she’s something equally worth giving credence to: a boundary-breaker, a nasty bitch, a self-proclaimed queen, a self-determined and self-made artist. She’s one of the boys, and she does it with the intent to subvert what it means. She sings about sexy women, about fucking around with different men. She raps about racing ahead in the game, imagines up her own strings of accolades, and rolls with a rap family notorious for dirty rhymes, foul mouths, and disregard for authority and hegemony.

While Beyoncé has expanded feminist discourse by reveling in her role as a mother and wife while also fighting for women’s rights, Minaj has been showing her teeth in her climb to the top of a male-dominated genre. Both, in the process, have expanded our society’s idea of what an empowered women looks like — but Minaj’s feminist credentials still frequently come under fire. To me, it seems like a clear-cut case of respectability politics and mainstreaming of the feminist movement: while feminist writers raved over Beyoncé’s latest album and the undertones of sexuality and empowerment that came with it, many have questioned Minaj’s decisions over the years to subvert beauty norms using her own body, graphically talk dirty in her work, and occasionally declare herself dominant in discourse about other women. (All of these areas of concern, however, didn’t seem to come into play when Queen Bey did the same.)

On 9th August 2014, unarmed 18 year old Michael Brown was shot by police officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson, Missouri, sparking social unrest that continues to this day. Here is a petition to prevent police misconduct.

Zuhair Murad (Arabic: زهير مراد‎) (born Beirut, 1971) is a Lebanese fashion designer. Since his early childhood, he always dreamt of evading to a world of fantasy. Zuhair Murad started sketching dresses at the age of ten, quoted as saying “I don’t recall a day in my life without a pen in my hand!”. In 1997, Zuhair Murad opened his first atelier in Beirut, catering to a growing private clientele. In 1999, Zuhair Murad celebrated his international debut at the Alta Roma Fashion Week, following an invitation from the Camera Nazionale della Moda. In 2001, Zuhair Murad presented his couture collection for the first time during Haute Couture Week in Paris, gaining momentum with international media. He expanded towards a ready-to-wear collection, with a more simple yet glamorous approach back in 2005. In 2012, the Zuhair Murad Fashion House relocated to a new, eleven-story building in Gemayzeh, in the heart of Beirut. The majestic space houses not only the corporate offices, but also the heart of the Zuhair Murad Design Studio, including designers, pattern makers, tailors and embroidery experts. Zuhair Murad was elected as a new guest member to the Haute Couture fashion week calendar by the supervisory board of the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture in Paris. This Lebanese breakthrough in the International fashion scene has lead Murad to become an icon to his peers and audiences from arount the world. His unique creations that define oriental exxence and beauty have made their way towards all the major podiums, boutiques, and personalities.
