Beyonce Launching Athletic Clothing Line with Topshop

Part superstar/part businesswoman, Beyonce just keeps breaking barriers in any industry she takes on. Last month, the 17-time Grammy award winning performer announced a partnership with British apparel brand Topshop to create a line of stylish sportswear. What’s more, Topshop’s deal with Beyonce is not only a collaboration, but a 50/50 partnership.

“I could not think of a better partner as I continue to grow the Parkwood business. I have always loved Topshop for its fashion credentials and forward thinking,” Beyoncé, who founded Parkwood Entertainment, said in a statement. “Working with its development team to create and produce a technical and fashion-led collection is exciting, and I’m looking forward to participating in all aspects of this partnership.”

Tameka 'Tiny' Harris Gets Controversial Surgical Eye Color Change

Rapper T.I.’s wife and reality star Tameka “Tiny” Harris has been breaking mainstream news after she permanently changed her eye color from brown to “ice gray.” The procedure, in which an artificial iris implant made of a thin, flexible, biocompatible, colored medical grade silicone is slipped over the eye to give it a different color, is called Brightocular and is not legal in the U.S., so Tiny traveled to Africa to have the procedure done.

“I permanently changed my eye color with Brightocular and lovin’ it. …I hated wearing contacts just for the color and it made my vision blurry!,” Tiny confirmed on her Instagram account after much speculation when fans started noticing her new eye color while she was making publicity rounds in early October for her newest VH1 reality show “Tiny and Shikinah’s Weave Trip.”

James Fortune Arrested For Aggravated Assault

Late last month, Grammy-nominated gospel recording artist/syndicated radio show host James Fortune was arrested and subsequently charged with aggravated assault to a family member. Little is known of what precipitated the incident and which family member was involved, but the 35-year old singer—known for such hits as “I Believe” and “I Trust You”—was released on $20,000 bond.

“I am truly sorry for the negative attention this situation has brought my wife, family, friends and business partners,” Fortune said in a statement released to Jawn Murray’s Alwaysalist.com. “Because it is a pending legal matter, I cannot comment on what has been reported. However, I understand the seriousness of this matter and ask that you respect the privacy of my family as we address this together. I would also like to thank my fans for their outpouring of love and support.”

Increasing Your Odds Against Identity Theft

Every three seconds, some one falls victim to identity fraud, according to a 2013 report by Javelin Research. That same report also found that the number of such incidents had risen by 1 million consumers last year boosting the dollar amount value of damage done to $21 billion.

Even systems and companies once thought to be impenetrable have themselves fallen victim to data breaches. Just last month, JPMorgan Chase disclosed that hackers accessed 76 million accounts during a cyber attack this summer and that the private information of their customers may have been stolen. Chase joins the list of several other Fortune 500 companies—including Home Depot, Target and P.F. Chang’s—who have had to make similar declarations.
