You’ll never guess who the new face of L’Oréal Paris is…

Céline Dion, everyone’s favourite diva, has been named the newest L’Oréal Paris spokesperson and we are all for it.

The five-time Grammy award winner joins the impressive, and not to mention diverse, line up of brand ambassadors that L’Oréal Paris have always advocated. In comparison to other well-know household brands, L’Oréal Paris have always championed the use of older women in their campaigns; Jane Fonda, Helen Mirren, Julianne Moore to name a few, and Dion joins the roll call at the age of 51.

L’Oréal Global Brand President, Pierre-Emmanuel Angelogiou, explains why Dion is the perfect fit: ‘Signing Céline Dion as the newest member of the L’Oreal Paris family builds our mission of aligning with spokeswomen who are strong, self-empowered, assertive, diverse and inclusive. Céline Dion is a woman of innate self-worth – following her heart to achieve success, challenge stereotypes and trailblaze the path for so many other women – and fully embodies our brand mission of ‘Because I’m Worth it.”

Dion, who famously does her own makeup for appearances, has been using the brand for years, ‘I really see L’Oréal Paris beyond beauty products, beyond colors, beyond care. You feel confident, whatever your achievement is. You feel feminine and empowered, expressing your inner strength. All of this means we are worth it. We need to give ourselves the credit we deserve.’

Her L’Oréal Paris partnership comes as she concludes her hit Las Vegas show, where she has been performing for eight years. ‘When you think I’m done, I’m just starting,’ Dion said in an interview with L’Oréal. ‘I’ve never felt so beautiful, strong, and I feel that the best is yet to come. Today is the beginning of the rest of my life and I don’t want to go back in time, I am going forward.’

You can catch Dion’s first TV advert on 22nd April, when it premieres worldwide. She kicks off this next chapter as the face of Excellence Hair Colour.

College Is For Suckas? You’ll Never Guess How Much Money Amber Rose Makes Off Instagram

The government shutdown had plenty of people considering new career paths with Uber and other creative ways to get by without a regular direct deposit occurring. One person that was clearly unaffected by Trump’s massive temper tantrum is Instagram favorite Amber Rose. The 35-year-old who was once Kanye West’s muse before he drank the Kardashian Kool-Aide recently sat down with Van Lathan as a guest on his podcast “The Red Pill.” Rose who is also affectionately known as “MUVA” shared with Lathan that thanks to Instagram she’s booked and busy and her bank account has no worries.

So how much money does MUVA make in a year? The blonde beauty shared that endorsements for flat tummy teas and popular clothing company, FashionNova as well as other collaborations bring in about a cool $ 2 million per year.

“Probably like $ 2 million a year, just off Instagram.”

While she isn’t exactly living check to check, she did point out that the payout was modest for a social media influencer:

“There’s girls that make more than $ 2 million a year, I make $ 2 million on Instagram a year.”

Like many of us, Lathan took a moment to highlight the millennial student loan-debt struggle sarcastically noting how some went to “college and bought into that bullsh*t, and Amber’s making $ 2 million off Instagram. Wow!” It’s also reported that Rose pocketed $ 4 million from an emoji app she launched in 2014. But MUVA maintains that while she’s been blessed in many ways, ultimately, she feels like the money moves are a result of her being a good person more than anything else:

“I feel like I made it this far by being a really good person.”

“I’m good to everyone I’m around. I treat everyone the same whether it’s a waitress or a driver or anybody. I take care of my team. I’m just a cool, down-home Philly chick.”

As much as I’m inspired by this tale of God’s favor for the fortuitous, I must say that I know plenty of “nice” women who treat those around them with respect that are still playing musical bills every month with their paychecks trying to see how they’re going to pay car insurance AND tuition for their kids. Are we really going to sit here and act like money falls from the sky simply because you acknowledged your Uber driver? Furthermore, as much as I applaud Amber Rose taking making the most out a few minutes of fame (I wouldn’t know who she was had it not been for Kanye), I would really appreciate it if many of these celebs were a little bit more honest about the connections that got them this far in the first place, but I digress.
