Shopping on sale gives me a unique kind of joy, because I’ve yet to find something that tops the thrill of a deal. There were admittedly a bunch of sales over Christmas and New Year’s, but I was traveling over the holiday season. Plus, now those sales have been marked down even further, which means now’s the time to shop. As much as I love sales, I have to admit that the sheer volume of product can make even a season shopping veteran like myself have to take a deep breath. But, I’ve braved the pages and pages of discounted items to bring you what I think is the best of this best.
These 17 items are year-round staples you’ll always want to have. From cool totes to classic boots and cozy scarves, you can’t go wrong with any of the items on this list. But if any of my loved ones happen to read this, I’m a really big fan of that Isabel Marant blazer . . .
Megan Thee Stallion and Normani’s New “Diamonds” Music Video Is a Sexy Display of Female Power
Megan Thee Stallion and Normani make a deliciously fierce team. The “Hot Girl Summer” rapper and the “Motivation” singer dropped their new music video for “Diamonds.” The song is a powerful and provocative sample of the ’40s classic “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend,” which features on the Birds of Prey soundtrack, to be released on Feb. 7.
The original classic debuted in the broadway musical Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1949), performed by Carol Channing. But, it was ’50s sexy symbol Marilyn Monroe that really made this song an unforgettable anthem for classy women who know how to secure the bag. Megan and Normani’s version, “Diamonds,” is a contemporary update on the well-known classic. Marilyn’s version framed her as using her sexuality as a powerful tool to capture and control male desire.
Megan and Normani’s take features two alluring black women using their sexuality to command power and attention among other women. The only men in the video are the villains, which our sheroes (Megan and Normani) take down effortlessly and in sultry style. “Diamonds” is an anthem for self-assured women who are all about their money and don’t need a man to secure it.
Take a peek at the sexy music video, and see if you can catch Margot Robbie’s cameos throughout.

22 Movies So Bad They Earned a 0 Percent Rating on Rotten Tomatoes
To be fair, not all movies are produced with the hope of becoming cinematic masterpieces. Some movies just want to provide a few laughs and scares rather than draw accolades, and that’s totally fine. However, some films are just incontestable stinkers, and no amount of A-listers in the cast can save them.
Is anyone surprised that Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star wasn’t nominated for an Oscar? No. But are we still surprised that Christina Ricci agreed to be in that movie? We sure are. Here are just 22 films that have earned a zero percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes, because bad movies happen and, sometimes, bad reviews are necessary.
