“Hu is short for human – human being, human race, humankind,’ said Pharrell. ‘But Hu, itself is also a reference to color. As human beings, we all have a color. We all look different, we all speak different languages, but we’re all connected.’ Pharrell Williams

Building on the limited-edition NMD that launched in July, Pharrell and adidas Originals return with Hu, a diverse range of full-color footwear and dynamic activewear. Celebrating a spirit of equality, acceptance, co-existence and understanding, the collection features flags, stripes, and translations of the phrase “Human Race” in English, French, and Japanese. Pharrell sums up the collection’s message simply: ‘I play for the human race.’

With the launch of Hu, Pharrell looks to shine a spotlight on communities around the world, sharing stories and traditions of humanity. In this first collection Native Americans from North Dakota invited Pharrell into their community to share their stories of compassion and culture, carrying on traditions of language, prayer, celebration and knowledge from one generation to the next.

‘I am so thankful to the people of MHA Nation who shared their journey and experiences with me. I want to use my platform for people to tell their stories and help empower people no matter where they’re from. By understanding humanity’s past, we will build a bridge to its future.’ Pharrell Williams

The adidas Originals = PHARRELL WILLIAMS Hu collection launches at select retailers worldwide and online at www.adidas.com/pharrell on September 29th.

The Followill fam is back! Caleb and the boys are trying to behave this time around, no really they are so maybe that’s why they got a little weird with their latest album cover for Walls due to hit on October 14th.

Doesn’t it kinda look like their heads are cereal in milk?? and if KoL head-shaped cereal were real, would you eat it?

I’d probably try it once so I could say I did… so long as the hair wasn’t real and it tasted like Cookie Crisp.

Not sure if this will inspire you or make you feel like a complete waste of skin. You remember Toni Basil right?? 80s hit song, “Oh Mickey”?? Turns out, at 72, Toni is still crushing it.

She took a dance workshop in France and while most would be paralyzed with fear shy away from dancing in front of the class, Toni gladly accepted her teacher’s challenge to bring it on. And by the looks of the video above, it was brought. Read more here.

“I’ve always been a dancer, and I will always be a dancer,” Basil told BuzzFeed. “Dance has been my lover, my doctor. I know I have my health because of this.”

…brb gonna go listen to 80s Hits and work on my pirouettes.

Young Thug Saves The Wrong Model During A Fashion Show.

Young Thug noticed a fashion emergency at the 9:26 mark that needed immediate attention. Don’t worry, he’s a mentor for VFILES Runway, he’s practically an EMT or EFT as it were.

What I can’t understand is how do you choose save one and not another??

I feel like he saved the guy with a paper-cut when this poor guy is having a heart attack.

Drake’s 12min video for “Child’s Play” is a cautionary tale…because when a girl/guy says “I’m not even trippin’…like my voice is really normal right now” at The Cheesecake Factory?? Things are not going to go well…and may you never work for someone like The Texas Hammer.

So? what do you think was going on here? and of course we could be crude but let’s be smarter than that because it’s more interesting.

Was it one of those situations where you’re uncomfortable because you don’t get the joke but laugh anyway?

or when you’re polite but the conversation has gone long and you really want to be with your friends?

She does seem to look guarded body language-wise but maybe he surprised her with some authenticity and that is a genuine laugh…

We’ll never know for sure so think of something good while listening to Beyonce: The Count UP. Celebrate your Queen and her birthday. If you heard Music News, I’m serious, who do I need to talk to to plan a Sapphire Jubilee?? The masks would be way less creepy than Queen Elizabeth II.
